The Japanese won a'coricilialoi-y peace treaty because they earned it. They had taken important steps on Die road toward democracy. And they had aligned their, strategic Islands unmistakably on the side of the West in the stride •Kainat communism. There was no significant; opposition voice in Japan to thin oourae. The.Rtory is not exactly the same in Germany. Tu be sure, Chancellor Ada; n«u«r eeem* thoroughly genuine in his •spousal of the West's cause, and he is now working earnestly for the adoption of the peace contract proposals set forth in Washington. There can be little doubt, either, that Germans prefer the West to life with Joseph Stalin's Soviet Union. Sentiment /or communism in Western Germany is not strong. But there are many elements among the defeated Germans who do not approach relations with the \Vest in a fitting spirit of fairness and honest humility. Mostly, these are neo-Nazi groups busy fanning the .sliil-bunm.g nationalist flames. Yet, unfortunately, they also include some members of the German socialist Party, the Social Democrats—not the least of which is the party leader, Kurt Schumacher. Veteran observers appear to agree that Schumacher's devotion to liberal goals cannot be questioned. But on the other hand, long attention to' his public pronouncements makes evident a persistently powerful nationalistic tone winch cannot help but cast suspicion on nis general motives. Schumacher, in theory a friend of the West, contrives in virtually every instance to find something wrong with Allied proposals for Germany's future. No sensible people expect a defeated nation to love its conquerors, nor to pass by opportunities to complain. But neither do they look for such arrogance and unfair demand as we have had from Schumacher at every stage. He is now committed to opposing the peace contract terms currently under discussion. Whatever the avowed purity of his Purpose, the effect of his position is clearly damaging t o the West's efforts to forge a solid European front against Russia.

Whatever Is done bo bring «p the number of military availablet, It Is quite clear that with the presently high rejection rate, selection service has little resemblance to universal military service and obviously Is no substitute nfc all for tin long projected universal military training for American youth.

Main reason for wanting to revise the treaty Ls to permit greater Italian rearmnmen and a larger Italian troop contribution to Genera Eisenhower's European army. The treaty limits Italy/s navy to two battle- «^ OU ^C: ers and auxiliary vessels. Italy is prohibited from building any new warships, aircraft carriers and submarines. The navy Is limited to 25.000 men. Italy's air force Is limited to 23000 men, 200 fighter aircraft and 1M transport planes. The army Is limited to 250,000 men and 200 tanks. These/ forces are obviously too small tor Italy's own defense In case of Communist aggression. Revision of these restrictions is ths principal business which has brought Italy's Prime Minister Alcid. de Qasperi to Washington. He Is also here to talk about settlement of the Trieste dispute with Yugoslavia, increasing Italian' emigration to reduce its unemployment admission of Italy to the United Nations and grentcr cooperation of Italy with other western European countries to promote economic development and a higher standard of living. If Premier At Gasperi could Just lake home with him an answer to the treaty revision question, his trip would be worth while. If he doesn't get this answer, nbont all he stands to lake home are good wishes and continued moral support from the American -government for the Ital- ian government. How Can Trealj Be At the start of Premier de Gasperi's talks with U. s. officials in Washington, international lawyers were pretty much up in the air and arguing among themselves over how the Italian peace treaty of 1947 could be revised. That Is legally. It could of course be renounced and a new treaty drawn up, without the arms restrictions. That's probably the way the Russians would do it, if it was to their advantage. But that's dirty diplomacy Treaties are made to be kept, not broken. The Italian treaty was signed by 20 allied powers. Three of them are Communist countries — Soviet Russia, White Russia and the Ukraine. Yugoslavia has broken with the Russians and the Russians aren't speaking to Nationalist China. Trying to get these five and the 15 other powers who are still allied to sit, down In a ne wpeace conference Is of course out of the question. The treaty itself makes little pro- •ision for revision. For the first IB months after the treaty WES: signed, the Big Four Ambassadors in Rome represented the allied powers in interpreting the treaty and dealing with the lew Italian government. That period has now long since passed. Article 87 of the treaty provides hat nny dispute concerning interrelation or execution of the treaty shall be relcrred to the Big Four Ambassadors. If they cannot settle :he dispute within two months It Is then referred to a two-member commission. If this commission dees not settle the dispute within one nonth. a third member mav be lamed by the UN Secretary General. But again, the rearmament question does not constitute a dispute over interpretation or execution of the Italian treaty. So this machinery can't be used. Treaty Makes No Provision For Revision What it boils down to Is that th treaty, negotiated during the ter of James F. Byrnes as Secretar of State, made no provision at a for revision. The allied powe would appear to be stuck with until some bright boy finds a wa out. . There it an interesting mor connected witii this. Suppose thi in 1946 Russia had agreed to German peace treaty on terms sin ilar to the Italian treaty. In th spring of 19W, Secretary Byrnes o: fered the Russians a 25-year guar anl*e against German rearmamen Russia's Foreign Minister Moloto turned it down, holding out for W-year guarantee and HO billlo reparations. But suppose the Russians ha taken the 25-year guarantee olfer ed by Secretary Byrnes. If the had, there would be even les chance lor getting German troo components In the European aim than there is for getting more Ital Ian divisions under General Eiscn hower. One solution now suggested is t have the Italians "volunteer" fo service under Ike, the same wa the Chinese Reds "volunteered" fo service In Korea. Another pitch might be to "ne gotlate" a new treaty with Italy the way the Japanese peace treat was handled, without a peace con ference. Or a new "peace contract might be made with Italy, ns now being considered for Germany. Sti: another possibility is to throw th whole question into the United Na tions.
