Some Iparn, hut others succumb. The Last Human Link This is the last Memorial 'Day for mosV of tlic comrades of the nwi for whom this solemn holiday was decreed. A hnnclful of centenarians remain from all Uiose vast armies of the sixties. Another year or two and the lasi old soldier will have rejoined the youthful ranks of those who fell in bailie more than 80 years ago. Thus will be broken the hist human link that joined the America of today with the great slniRgle which did so much lo chart its course and shape i's history. But some of the issues of that struggle remain. Questions which Americans seem to have answered in 1865 have arisen again to plngup the world today. The Civil War was a conlnst between sovereignly and interdependence, as well as between slavery and freedom- It was fought to determine "'r whether differences of opinion offered a valid reason for renouncing a com '_' -mon kinship and language, a rommor. heritage and a common destiny. Today the issue "of sovereignty and interdependence is still unsettled.. Two i world wars have been fought in 30 yean, to reaffirm what the American ; Civil War proved—that jthe way to i strength and prosperity aiul happiness is through unity and brotherhood. Yet the instinct of pride and the tradition of nationalism remain strong. The lesson 'is not yet learned. .The American dead of two world wars remind us today of the tragic futility of sacrifice in war that is not followed by wisdom in peace. But tliC dead ; of the American Civil War, in whose honor this day wag set aside, remind us, too, that sacrifice can. lead to ptace and greatness because of that war. The issues that divide our country are insignificant beside those that . unite it. Let ns hope that this example. rc " membercd today by Americans, will not be lost upon the world. themselves out That's why the DP camps of Europe and the island of Cyprus are still crowded. There have been several reasons advanced why the U. S. should not permit immigrants lo como in undci- unused iiuolas. Some fear thai we should be admitting a horde of Communists. Others think the majority of immigrants might be public charge.;. Still other:; put forth the claim that they would cause unemployment and upset our economy. Naturally, the immigration officials should not simply let down the bars and shut Iheir eyes. There should bo the usual screening of undesirables and potential indigents. Bui il is not unlikely that most displaced Europeans who wish to come here have frtemlu or relatives in America who would vouch for their care until they were self- support ing. As for the last objection, it is ridiculous to claim that a counlry of 140 million people with many sparsely populated stales cannot assimilate 100,000 or 200,000 immigrants a year. The present, non-accumulativj immigration quota for this country is lf>:t,!)2!) a year. This makes 1,07/,503 for the years ISI'lO-'IC. During that lime 3'IO,-129 alien immigrants were admitted to this country—200,709 of Ihein Europeans. Thus Ihere are 737,074 fewer immigrants than might have come in, except for Hie war, under our present immigration laws, which so many do nol waul to see relaxed. Under those circumstances, it does seem that America could be doing more for some of the decent, blameless, homeless victims of Europe's WHY than it is doing at present.

No Charge for Sympathy Two bills, now kicking around in congressional committees, would admit some 100,000 displaced persons ;t ycnv to the U. S. ou immigration quotas unused during the war years 1940-46. There is little indication that these bills will soon reach the House and Senate floors, or that they will get Var when and if they do. This, it may be feared, is rather typical of the general American attitude toward Europe's unfortunates. And it seems safe to say lh;;l it is particularly typical of our attitude toward displaced Jews. Perhaps it is unfair and unflattering to many people of good will to say this, hut there are indications that sonv; popular American support of Zionist aspirations arises from -his altitude. We are sorry for these first victims, of Hitler's cruelty, that altitude seems to say. We want to see them established in freedom, happiness and prosperity. But for heaven's sake' don't bring them over here! They'll just have to wait until this Palestine business is settled. Such thoughts are not exclusively ; , American.

The state court Grand Jury at Kansas City has now indicted 2G persons, in addltio.i to 39 already indicted, on charges relating to tillered vote fraud in last August's primary election. The F5 persons Indicted include election Judges nnd clerks and precinct workers, nnd the election officials arc charged generally wi'.h making s\ false return of "the true nnd lawful result" The county prosecutor used tlie evidence gathered by tlic Kansas City Ste>r. It was in the August primnry that a Democratic candidate endorsed by President Trumnii ami backed by Uie Pcnclergast machine defeated Repi esentntlvc Slaughter, whom IiTr. Truman wanted to "purge."' Soir.c 10 years ago. before the 193C election, the Kansas City Star made another investigation—into registration—and the "ghost vote" was estimated at 60,000. The machine carried the election in the best machine manner, hut a Citizen's League asked for a federal Grand Jury investigation and inc FBI war, called in. The Grand Jury retunic.l some 278 indictments and many defendants got. sentences ranging from 30 days in jail to live years in a federal penitentiary.

The Food Council has worked with the United Nations Social and Economic Council, though IEFC is not one of the specialized UN agencies. Fooj problems of the United Nations arc the function of FAO —the Food and Agriculture Organization. This was one of the first postwar international agencies -set up, but it has accomplished little beyond a number of preliminary surveys of long-range food conditions. The FAO charter may not permit its taking over the functions of IEFC, though this mav be considered at the Geneva FAO conference in August. That will hepenr i.i some measure on the success of the UN International Trade Organization meeting now being held in Geneva. If ITO flops In solving the problems of international distribution, FAO can accomplish little by increasing production. In Uic meantime, all but a few of the more fortunate nations of the world face another year of hunger if international bureaucracy fails to meet its first big test. The implications arc in many respects frightening. Prolonged hunger, wherever It is found, is a basic discord and draw lines of hate and prejudice, sometimes in tiic. sucreri name of Christ and Christianity. . Along that way so surely lies ilia that all who love God must ;ct themselves to do everything possible to promote the national trength that can come only to a jcoplc united in justice and right- ^ousness. The Northern Kingdom, ns we lave seen, was the first to fall. It was swept away eighl centuries before Christ when the armies of Assyria came down upon it- Its people became known to history th c "Lost Ten Tribes." ' The Southern Kingdom survived for another 136 years, but it also went down before the armies 0( Babylon. Our lesson tells ol an interlude in this 136-year downfall when a good king, Hezekiah, and a nobTt! prophet, Isaiah, were dominant in Judah. It is the story, too, of n great deliverance prophesied by Isaiah, when a plague of disease struck the great army with which Sennacherib, the Assyrian, came to conquer the people. But JudahV course, as the title of this lession indicates, was tin- steady. Periods of better living, wise kingly guidance, and welfare were intermixed with periods of bad leadership ami idoltry. Hezekiah himself, though a good king, was by no means perfect He did a foolish thing when he vainlv displayed to envoys from j wasn't _a_H." the king of Babylon his wealth and the treasures of his palace.
