It is the thesis ••of 'Communists and pro-Communists 'that any frank discussion of Soviet foreign policy is designed to drum up ."jf World-War III in which the rest of v'ihe..'w.orld will gang up on Russia. This is, of course, the exact opposite v -ftf.1 .Uie^ruth. .Secretary Byrnes lifted ..^^ttflftelf several notches in the direction of major statesmanship when he warned that Russia's current aggression offentls against the Charter of the UniteH Nations, and that our country is >^pafied''to 1 -'defend that charter. We have 'just .;finished fighting a jl&adly,.,war, on behalf of certain prin- Jciples. We fodght 'only in a small part •for' idealistic reasons. We spent our ^material wealth and we spilled the •• blood of our best youth because wo Iwere convinced that there never could 'b'e. 'permanent peace until this world .lived under the Four Freedoms. 1 We are happy if that war may ;bring- the blessings of democracy, of [self-determination, to smaller, less, foitiinata nations But we did not fight' foil them We went to because •we wanted peace badly enough to fight for it, spend for it, even die for it. "• , The United Nations Organization _was ,cie<ited m an effort to 'obtain aitiyesco-operation to eliminate the Cjiuaes^ of \var yhe Charter, with all is designed to protect ...the al lights of every nation > Slpsgia to Liechtenstein—not, for lo\e ol Russians or tenstemians, but because when * of any people, however tiny, ifnnged upon b> am other people, ive^greif,*•> a ne\\ seed of world war is planted m fertile soil y"r-« * #1*--•*—vyrnV 1 - „<- f -t j D$umg-the entire penod in which tiw£\var T wa& being won and the United Nations' organized, Russia, pursued a \\hple-senes of nationalistic aggressions that offended against the principles which must underlie world peace. - We '-made" every," allowance for Russia. Moilthlafter month—indeed, year after JpWT^we- hoped that she might really be u gentle lunib in wolf's clothings, and we appeased her shamefully, permitting her to get away with most of the things for which we fought Germany. But we knew, reitlly that her course was pointing toward World War HI. Neither the United States nor Great Britain, nor both, is going to attack Russia. Nor is Russia going to attack either of us. Nevertheless, Russia keeps whittling away at the fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter, deliberately doing those things that she and we have formally agreed are the causes of war. Secretary Byrnes did the correct, courageous thing when he warned that wo wil fight again, if we must, to eliminate! the causes of war. If he is wrong, and we are wiling to see Russia do what we liquidated Germany and Japan for attempting, then the United Nations Organization is a sham and a delusion, and the United States an errant poltroon.

"She's a wonderful cook," Ann said, in some appreciation. The remark was fortunately timed Mrs. Christmas was bringing in dessert, a miracle o£ sweetness and light in the form of an apricot souffle. "I'm glad to see young girls eat," Mrs. Christmas answered shortly, and left the room. "And you can thank Juu . healthy appetite for having her on your side from now on," Colin informed Ann.

After the statements were read, the conj feren'ce was thrown open to quesl lions. The statements were pretty hrond, but at, the end ot Ihe Browning piece was one sentence which seemed to offer possibilities for a little pay dirt if dug into. It read: "... the (Employment i Act contemplates that both business and government ivill analyze economic trends and ake .such action as will be necessary to secure the desired volume of production and employment," BROWNING'S "INCREDIBLE" TAX THEORY Innocently. General Browning was asked how he analyzed present economic trends and what action he proposed taking to secure Ihe desired volume of production nnd employment. That was when the gun exploded. Reporters could hardly believe their ears. This wa.s the first lime since 1932 that anyone in Ihe executive end of the national administration had dared express any opinion contrary to the New Deal Ihcory that the more money anyone made, the higher his tax rate should he. Could it be that the whole trend of tax pohcy was goii to be reversed as casually as this? General Browning explained. The ; way the tax law.s were noa. they were curbing production. The income tax "rates on the upper brackets were too high. If a company couldn't make more noney by doing more business, the .enern] continued, it liati no iin-en- tive to produce more goods.
