He thinks that what has been done in Italy is British foreign policy and is not satisfactory to tile bulk of. Italian people. lie thinks that the Hritlsh "do much loud talking for liberality, but are fundamentally conformists." He thinks that Ameiie.,,, faith and ideals, must heroine the faith and ideals for the entire woild, and ho hearkens hark to the faith and ideals of Washington. Jefferson, Thomas Paine. Walt Whitman. Lincoln and Wilson. "When I was fnreign editor fit the news bureau in .Milan.

A world authority is needed to enforce such principles and to eriuali/o Hie opportunities for the common man, he declared. "There must bo the freedom of self-determinism among nations," lie said. "The sense of nationalism is; one of the great fallacies of our times" but he ln-lieves. "however slow the processes" touard internationalism that this principle must prevail because "man is an animal that thinks in terms of the impossible." and that man will forever "hitch his wagon to a star." The universality for mankind is already taking place on the level of human thought and ideals, he believes, pointing out that Wilson was most greatly influenced by a German philosopher, Kant. He said that it is true that "universal personalities" become the real leaders of mankind.
