' food in other lands. And food today is an important factor in American diplomacy. Food is a key chapter in tho story of America's world position today. A well-fed, prosperous America sharing food witli others wilt do much to s«)l doubtful peoples on the American, brand of democracy.

Bolivar, The Great VIEWS OF OTHERS Where Do We Go From Moscow? Economy of Abundance.. • Secretary- of 'Agriculture Anderson has proposed, a realistic farm' program to succeed the wartime price-support setupi It is Abased on the theory that food should be growji in abundance and consumed the 'same way. This-is quite :a .departure, from. tlx6 present practice 'of • maintaining artificial high prices; and. dumping surpluses, as well a3 from the prewar economy of scarcity, which paid farm- e'rs f or lowering the food . supply to match lowered buying poweV.

Instead of paying the 'iarrner -for -Jiot prbducing, the'.government would-buy fop'd for those who couldn't afford it. IU addition, the- secretary would \ like" to see this government enter into agreements with other countries for the -sale of our food surpluses at reduced prices. It seems likely that Mr. Anderson's 'ormer congressional colleagues will give his plan, consideration when they start writing a new farm bill. There will be no scarcity of hungry people in this world for some time to come. In view of that unhappy prospect, any thought of an agricultural economy of scarcity would seem not only unreal, but rather heartless. A government-planned food program costs money, whether the mviwy is spent to plow under Uttb pigs, support food prices, or make food available free or at reduced cost to those who need it. But the last type of expenditure promises the most dividends. We may hope that America will never again see the bad times when, in Mr. Roosevelt's word's, ono-third of a nation was ill-fed. We may work io see that those times don't return. But, though economic emergencies may be minimized, there is no guarantee that they can be avoided •ntireljv Even if we >ucc«ed in k*ernnf our living standard tt its. present level; there will be a p)»c».for our «wrplu» The failure ol the Moscow Conference is monumental enough to startle nny of' us Into deeper thought for, the future.

This proposal, like the Truma-.\ Doctrine, a presented as nn eventual means of coming to agreement with Russia. The idea is that when once the Kremlin finds that the West meajis business. Russia will see that there Is ho- advantage In more diplomatic war. - •' The reasoning may be sound. 1 Certainly Rav sia has aliovrn more than' once tnat she did r.ot understand tlic language of conciliation. .But this course plainly, runs grave riiks. Tne tlrst, of course, is tnat It visibly ana consciously sharpens the cleavage between Russia inh America. It moves more clearly into the afena of power politics. It more plainly sidetracks international co-operation through jthe United Nations. It tends toward the position or suiric American Congressmen who demand a preventive war. Tills concept in Its more advanced torrru would soou begin to raise an . Iron courtain against all interchanges between one system and the other. It Is. already threatening to' cut off, the State Department's splendid radio «!forts to tell the Russians about America and about the democratic ways. It would alio abandon all the Islands of Western culture and hon^Communlst Ideas now lyliif behind the Russian diplomatic front ' . This mlULarlzca concept moves necessarily toward totalitarianism. It Is already showing a disposition to tolerate no opposition. It,will not easily permit little nations to take -ui'mde- pcndqnt or neutral position. It will nQf'com- forlably . allow advocates of different.' methods to si>eak 'freely at. home. It might sootl .try even to laljcl any peace seeker a communist. ' Moreover,- the attitudes which .can develop front this course will, put too much reliance on mere military or financial pov/nr. They c?n align—they have already too much aligned— American power with world-wide forces ot reaction and clerical fascism against Ideals ot freedom and equality which own the tuture. finally, these concepts of power politics ami military strategy «\n cause Amer:cnns to forget, that the unslc struggle In the world today Is one of Ideas. There may be no ready alternative to a hardening and sharpening of ihe two-worlils concept. But surely the rlsfcs it entails should impel every thoughtful person to emphasize the underlying spiritual facts which. If understood, would enable nil men to live aa brothers. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONtt'OR. Othman Yearns for a Private Bathroom Unsullied by Woman BY FREDERICK C.
