How Soon Is Practicable? Washington newspapermen were finally admitted to the mystery-shrouded precincts of Duniliai (on Oaks after a week^of what Uwlcisecrelnry of State Stettmius called "reticence" on the purl of the intci national oiganixation conference. They heard a statement pf general agi cements which the .delegates had reached, along- with Mr. Stettiiiius' apology,,for the "reticence." They, learned lhat the conference had decided oil an international assembly of peace loving nations, a smaller council with limited authority, and an international court of justice. This was pi'couraging but haidly startling. Siih- <-iiintial)y the same agi cement had been leeched.m the Fulbiight and Connally resolutions and the Democratic and Republican platforms - It is good to know that the inter- na.tional confeioncc ha 1 ! started down a • logical'aiid obvious io,ul toward world peace. But if these foicgonc conclusions sum up the fiiht Deck's 'acconiplish- rrfenls,'' the coHfercncc thus far could . scarcely be called fiuitful. 'Have any fuithci agreements been • leached' Appjiicntly "ictWence" would forbid their disclosure. Mr: Stettinius defeh'deri this icticence.' by invoking <jth«r~seu;ct sessions, .fipni: the Consti-. tJilionaJ ^Convention of 1787 to.prqsont- <J3y'~c6iigi(>s''ioi)al committees and;po- ^itical platform di afters. He cmphn- bi?ed that', the only difference between Btich sessions and Dumbarton Oaks is £hat the latter is 'a matter of inter- (latioiml a'b «>ll as of domestic concern." \ But that is a great Difference. Plat-., forms and lavis aic subject;to popular' Approval, either diieclly. or through fleeted repicscnt.i lives Treaties are subject to open debate In no case is there ganger of secret national commitments. 5 This is not to say that there have peen such commitments at Dumbarton paks. But it would have been nice lo Jmve had fiom Mi Stettinius a thump- jng, forthiight declaiation of denml. P'Kere uas no such assurance. Instead, the imdeisccielaiy cnipliasi/.ed'the confidential natuie of 'expressed opinions. Ht? implied that, there was no choice between a detailed hanscript of discussions and the veiv general statement Issued. He quoted Secretary Hull's slate- jnent that, after discussion by all Unit£d Nabobs' goveinments, conclusions Jvoulcl be made available for public £tudy and debate "as soon as praclic- fible" J" And how soon is practicable?

I i SKAV Phnn THE STORY OP DTJCKWORTItl XXVII r PlIE Allies were now holding A one-third of the Kalian peninsula, the Urilish advancing \ip the cast coast while the Americans were contesting every foot of the ground up the west coast—both driving along (lie roads toward Rome. While burdened with the tremendous responsibilities of these actions, we find General Eisenhower (ho same strong but genial l!:c in his contacts with his generals and soldiers at (he front and his start back at headquarters. His human qualities never deserted him even in the greatest crises. General Ike had witnessed the battle of Salerno, arriving there by land, sea, and plane from his African headquarters. He left headquarters in a Flying Fortress nnri boarded a British ship which look him to Italy. There he went ashore in an American PT boat and then traveled around by jeep. While with General Clark iie found himself under direct five. A German mortar shell whined over their heads and landed a short distance away. He was again under fire at Ihc battle of Vollurno. His men were used to seeing him conferring with Ihcir chiefs at advance field headquarters amid Ihe screaming of shells and roar ol bursting bombs. Throughout tiic Sicilian and Kalian campaigns Ihe gcnoi-al never forgot the welfare nt his troops and no problem was loo small for him. He visilcrt an army show and commended the actors. \Vhcn ho heard of a proposed visit pf Ihc all-star baseball learns he wired, "I not only want those teams but I insist that Ihcy slay . over lor 30 days," Neither did he lose touch will) .his family, A.lcUer frgni (old him his brother Milton was offered the post as president of Kansas Slate College. He wrote back, "A large part of the kind of peace achieved after this war rests on the principles laid down in America's schools." * +• * Q.ENERAL EISENHOWER is a ^ man who considers no task loo small if he feels he should do it. He received a letter in Italy from a small St. Louis boy who had been appointed by his class- males and teacher to write to the general. The lad told him how they were writing lo fellow parishioners of Ihe Asssumplton School on the baltletronts. The general immediately sent back a reply: "... I am sure lhat in writing regularly lo soldiers in Ihe service you and your schoolmates arc doing a very fine thing and one which you may be sure is definitely contributing towards the winning of this war. . . ." Another epic in the warmhearted personal approach of General Eisenhower is the story of Duckworth, a dog, and his two fighter-pilot masters. Lieut. Har old Taft and Lieut. Richard East hnd. brought the dog to Africa with them, taking tlic little spaniel on the long voyage across on o troopship. One day Lieutenant East failcc to return from a. mission. His parents were duly notified thai he was missing. They dispatched a leltcr to General Eisenhower, asking it the ciog could be sent home lo them. The general commanded immediate compliance -with the request. Just prior to the dog'; departure he learned that Ihe co master, Lieutenant Taff, was alivi and also wanted the dog. Thi information came to him in a lot tcr from General Spaatz. Ik quickly sent the following letter U> Lieutenant East's parents: "It is learned that the dog, Duck- orlh, belonged jointly to 'Lieu- enant East and his best friend, ^icutcnant Taff. Lieutenant East /as killed in action April 1. His ilano and grave were located after ur forces moved into the Tunis rea. The loss of his best friend .ccply affected Taff. The com- landing officer of Uic fighter group irought Taff with the dog to (he irplanc. Ta(T was lieartbroke t the thought of losing his nd wanted to spend every ilc minute with him until the ilane look off. He placed him in he plane and carefully tied him. Ic left the plane just before the ake-olT. Colonel West had been vailing in his car to lake TafE ack (o quarters, but Taff was ecu lo thank him and walk away rom the car to an adjoining field. "Under the circumstances, and n particular in view of Hie state- nent thnt Ihe dog was joinlly iwncd by your son and his best rienrt, and especially as Taff has hown strong affection for the dog, believe you will agree with me t would IM unwise lo return the dog to you as requested. "The friendship of a dog is precious. Tt becomes even more so f one is so far removed from homo is \ve arc in Africa. I have a Scotly. In him I find consolation ind diversion. For me lie is the one 'person' to whom I can talk without the conversation turning back lo Hie war. Duckworth is performing a patriotic service.
