SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 1944 army are daily .••strengthening Premier Stalin's ability to demand what he wants. Polish Mission to Moscow •t ^ The mission to Moscow of Polish premier Mikolajczyk e;ui be motivated only by Die hope of n, compromise scL- >t!emonl of the long and hitter Polish- •Russifin dispute. The exiled Polish gov- 'ernmcnt in -London is in no position to demand. It' can only ask, and hope Hint 'Premier Shilin \\-iH see fit to give it ;t Jplace, along with the Russian-supported ^Polish Committee of National Liberation, in the, new government of Poland. * It would be to Premier Stalin's ad- .Sranlaee to do this. To ignore the pre- ,'Jvar Polish government undoubtedly 'jjvould alienate the sympathy of ninny i>olcs, including members of the umler- 'ground army, whose support would be •of great < help in the present fighting. -It would also be a contradiction of the •avowed .self-determination subscribed ,to by the United Nations. " The Polish government in exile is '(i coalition of the Socialist, Peasant, .^Christian Labor and National Domo- Ifcral parties which existed before the Jfjcrman invasion. Communists were ex- Icluded from the prewar government, Jjvhich 'certainly complicates Ihc present "Situation. Blit Russia now to impose a Jjjovornment distasteful to the majority *t)f Poles would not offer much' hope * * $or future peace.' . , , 2 On the : othor hand, Premier Stalin •.obviously, \will not consider the . exiled ^government's desire 16 create a Poland 4.whicb can play off Germany against Russia, as it tried to do in the past. t{The actual attempts to do that seldom aworkcd to. anyone's advantage, least of ••all Poland's. For years the -Poles were Bunder the domination of Russia or Ger- Jmany, when they were not actually 'Jjeing ruled by one or the other coun- Jivy. So the 'Russian solution may be ^best for Poland. >1 Mr. Stalin wants no "buffer stale" jnext to him. Hi^ evident goal is close •co-operation of the Slavic countries, T-aimed at suppressing any growth of -German, power and aggressiveness. This Bought to meet with (he approval of ^everybody except the Germans. Even 'jthe Polish gpvernmenl that has opposed -Mr. Stalin's plans shouldn't object on ••that score. i- Whether the Russian premier wanl:i -io sovictiyw;" Poland remains to be seen. £A. fair guess might be that lie does !3iot. For, one thijig, the Cominlern is "officially abolished, though it might l>u ^revived. For another, Russia is goinj; jto be faced with a tremendout postwar H[ask of rebuilding and readjustment. -jMr. Stalin won't court trouble. ^ Most ir;; ortant, Russia '.UIP no apparent neotl to ancx more IcrvHory. •-Vast lands and vast resources \K lo Ihe Oeast. We arc always being to-d that "^Russia's future is in Asia, :ind that is Jjndoubtedly true. Rut Russia -doesn't Svant to be locked out of Eurov.e, either. ^Closc tics with Slavic and Balkan neigh- *faors would keep the door open. And jjthe prodigous triumphs of the Red Compl imentdry-Abuse Evidence Introduced in the Wash-* ington sedition trials reveals that Governor Dewey as well as President Roosevelt has been the, turret of abusive articles in buiidist.'anti-Sumiiiu and ultra-isolationist publications. Defense attorneys protest the "insult" to the Republican candidate. Actually, of course, the abuse was a distinct compliment. All patriotic citizens, regardless of party, should rejoice that both candidates for our highest office have-experienced the cleansing process of being denounced by these un-American c!e- ments.

Mindanao, southernmost of the Philippines, lies (iOO miles away across tlie sen. within easy bombing range, nils is Uic sixth major landing since the invasion of Netherlands New Guinea began at Hollandla a little more than three months ago. The requisite amphibious Icchritnue has been reduced to nil exact science. Well 'lit advance,' Allied planes neutralized the Japanese base at Sorong, 00 miles to.Ihc west, and cleared the sea nnd air. They hovered over the beach, ns the troops poured nshorc, nnd Allied cruisers and destroyers stood by.' ' ~ As usunl, a force of Japanese was by-passed. Some 15,008 men under Lieut. Gen. Sliiinklclil Ikeda were left behind at Maiwkwarl. They can advance 150 miles westward against the prepared Allies nt Sansnpor This has been tried without success by lour times their number similarly isolated at Aitape. The alternative Is to strike south through the jungle. Their dllcmmn ilhis; (rates once again the bankruptcy of Japanese defensive strategy In the Southwest Pacific. Lacking .support from the sea nnd air, their strong points wither nwny. In the lace-losing futility. Little has been heard of In re- cclnl months.
