Is Never an Aggressor The British and the French—especially the former—like to think of tlicm- iselveR BS the most mature people politically on the face of the glolje. Consequently they tend to resent nml distrust Americans as upstarts given to wild impulse in world politics. The rearmament of the West is official policy in both Britain and France, and it is supported either eagerly or grudingly by large elements in those nations. But there are also many who actively oppose it, and even among those who favor it there are grave misgivings over the relation lje|ween rearmament and pence. This opposition and this fear center upon the United Stales, since our own rearmament is overwhelmingly the most important in the Western picture. The attitude is: "How can we be sure that America wll not use this vast military potential to precipitate a war against Russia which none of us waul?" Now the mere fact that the British and French ask this question is evidence they exaggerate in their claims to maturity. For maturity implies knowledge and understanding of others in the family of nations. And what they are exhibiting here is rank, inexcusable ignorance. One might argue thai the rantings of some Americans for "preventive war," for a policy of "lei's drop the A-bomb on their cities and get it over with," are enough to justify Knropoau fears. Kut that's a shallow view. Thi.s country has always had its freewheeling orators, its shoutors and declaimers. Anyone who knows anything about the United States understands that—and lakes it all with a huge helping of salt. The really vilal tilings to know about America is that it hi'S never yel undertaken a war of aggression. Indeed, it has never started a war on its own. Its entire tradition, its way of life, its moral concepts, all these mitigate strongly against that ever happening Nothing is more fundamental to au understanding of this nation. There is utterly no disposition among the top policy makers of the United States to use our growing armed might to strike offensively at Russia. The whole rearmament program is geared to a strategy of de.fense—and the arms, and men IKJW called for under that plan are inadequate to any other kind of warfare. Thus the ignorance of the British and French is compounded. For if they truly grasped the meaning of the rearmament, program of which they are a part, they would see instantly that it could not support the sort of impulsiv* strike they fear. It is not amiss to suggest—at this critical pass in the world's affairs—that our brethren across the Atlantic spend a little less linte in shouting their ill- founded fears of what we might do, and a little more in learning what we have done in the- past and are really likely to do on another day. Reds Have a Reason The Soviet Union has come up with one of its typical maneuvers on revision of the Kalian peace treaty. The \\''s primary aim in calling for revision, of course, is to remove present limits on Italy's rearmament so that country can take part more fully in the North Atlantic alliance. Russia now says it will agree to revision and to Italy's admission to the •UN if the Italians withdraw from the North Atlantic Pact and if the West agrees to revision also of the peace Irealies with Bulgaria, Hungary and Rumania Agreement on the first point would defeat the whole purpose of revision. The second is patently absurd, since Moscow long ago "revised" the satellite treaties unilaterally, to suit its own military aims. The Kremlin really spoke up on the revision issue for just one big reason. I'or the sake of communism's future in Italy, Russia had to show interest in the improvement of Italy's status as a nation. But no one will be fooled that that interest is genuine. Views of Others Unity Troubles in Germany. Three kincLs of unity, fill troubled, currently nmrk the uneasy plight of defeated Germany lu a world which seems to be preparing for another war before the last Li fully done. One ot these Is In progress of slow development, the linking of the free West German republic with NATO for a unified defensive array Russian aggression. A[iother Is but a deep longing in Gennnn hearts, reunification of a homeland now split by Rus-sla's Iron Curtain, The third unity U In the newly-reported, and nit her remarkable, agreement among sometimes bitterly opposing factions In the West German government concerning the ftret two unities. Moscow pulled the airings, and the Zona German parliament held out most tempting bait to West Germany. In vague terms. It agreed to most of Hie Intlrr's conditions for an election on reuniting Rust and West Germany. Despite their fervid hopes. West German leiuS- ers responded with a .healthy .skepticism, ami ttgrecd to continue talta Umiod nt a German part In free world defense. Fast Zone acceptance of West Zone conditions wnuid obliterate, at least temporarily, the former's police stale regime. West Germans are justified by history In having doubt A Itnrd road remains ahead,, though. The reds may be expected to continue their tnntallying tactics of disruption. I-nst November, for instance, there was much talk ot West German rearmament. Russia developed a sudden fervor for peace, light and Grrman unity, and ivnnlcd a conference. But such talk had died down by the time deputy foreign ministers ROL together in Paris last .spring. So Oromyko fmvrnt all about peace, licht and unity, and proceeded tn bluster and rant (he meeting to drath over several months' time. Now the lalk has beijun again; and Russia lin^ ru'iiin remembered her undying devotion to the cause of teunif lent ion. Let West Germans remember the wide gult tppnrMIng promises and fulfillment— especially communist promises. -ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT SO THEY SAY It's Getting Difficult to Maintain a Good Front Peter £dson's Washington Column — Mossadegh Is First Problem UN Needs to Solve in Oil Crisis WASHINGTON 'NEA1 — Ameri- ( ed as Minister of Justice, Finance, Affairs, as well TrnniTui Cabinet.

Sunday School * Lesson By WILLIAM E. GIL-ROY, D. D. Apart from its religious significance, and Its piace in the history of the Jewish people, I have long felt that the story of Joseph as told In the Book ol Genesis is among the greatest and most remarkable stories ever written. I have often related how some years ago. when 1 was conducting a men'i meeting of the "Pleasant Sunday Afternoon" type, in Hamilton, Ont., a Baptist minister, whose j budging, and Mr. T. informed the Amvets that he did not like otfier people telling him what to do about hla appointees. Tfcat apparently settled that, leaving Mr. Truman Infallible Judge of whiskey, horses and men—the latter being untouchable even by the public which antes up their pay. Pork prices, the Agrl Department has reported, have come down 15 per cent since mid-summer but added that little if any of the cut will dribble down to the consumer at the shallow end of the trough. Who siphoned off the benefits has not been a subject,of any discussion, it seems, and the public will please be a little more damned and a littl* less nosey. Accusing newspapers and magazines of using stories made available to them by sundry government agencies, Truman set up $45 million a year.

Yet when the Mos- sadegh nationalization law was last Spring, so complete was its tottering economy, unfreeze Iranian royalties now being held back by the British, It was thought this could be worked out by having the British tanker captains sign receipts for the oil "without prejudice" to the Anglo-Iranian case. But the British balked at that. There is considerable American criticism of the British for their tionist, and his part In the program was to recite without comment, from 1 the Authorized Version of the Bible, the 11 chapters of Genesis that tell the story of Joseph. It was for me not only an Impressive, but a positively thrilling experience. I suppose I had read the slory do/.en. 1 ! of times, probably In fragments; but now for the first time I saw It as a whole with its full literary effect. Its sharp cpn- trasts. its suspense. Its depths of depression, its suspenseful climax. It is a great story, and how It could have been better, or more effectively, told I cannot imagine.
