But the parallels of method art striking. Hitler began to prepare • the ground for war by talking of democratic encirclement, unfriendjy elements iii neighboring countries, and'the"right of self-defense. . . ' . , , Mr. Stalin has recently''spoken 1 of ' capitalistic- encirclement, the desire-for friendly governments on Russia's, borders', and the need of preparing Russia for " any eventuality." Hitler directed his most venomous oratory at Grent Britain while, in. the , e^rly days, he assuv.ed the United States of his friendly intentions, played up the considerable amount of G e >'- mau blood in America's racial stock, - and aclvjsed us that Britain's war was . none of QUT . business, ----- Mr. Stalin and the- Russian press have had some bitter things to say '?•• ab<jut Britain' in recent days. : At the .same time they pointed out that Russia has been friends with the United States longer and mpro consistently ' ';." .than Britain has. They, have-advised UH that it is not our mission to pull - -- Britain's -imperial chestnuts out of the fire. Hitler began his military-activities L = by sending troops into undefended-or weakly defended . border territories, with Austrian annexations as tne climax. Mr. Stalin's -troops have been • active in Iran, where. : they> remajn in violation of a treaty in >vhich Russia Jigreed to evacuate them on ' March •'?.. There the.parallel ends,.Hitler, thundered and hia armies clanked' • abqut • near home until he had built up what he thought was an invincible war machine. Mr. Stalin undoubtedly has the most powerful military force uwter arms today. That force may be kept under arms until he achieves the politic*! atmosphere which he obviously considers vital to Russia's future life but the elements of which he has not chosen to reveal to the rest of the world, . It is unlikely that Mr. Stalin wants another war. Certainly, he do«s not want it now. For Russia, with all her' military might, is war-weary and in- riustrially weak. Whether Mr. Stnlln's activities 'are aimed at gathering re" sources needed in building a war machine five or ten years hence is another matter, not to be dismissed with a "time alone will tell." The external parallel of German activities in the late 'Thirties and Russian activities today, however different the Internal motives, proclaims the urgent need for action. Th'.is time the tragic drift toward destruction must be stopped early and completely. That is « job for the United States. Russia and Britain are now engaged in pot-am! -kettle accusations' of biack'- rieRs which can only make, a dangerous situation worse. There is'• need-'for strong mediation backed 'by strong 1 force. If that means that we nuiai partially rearm, then, repugnant as • the thought is, we shall have to 'do it. Only Fair American, delegates to the international monetary conference in Savair .Hah. ran into British opposition' when they suggested that the president of the World Bank and the managing director of the World Fund should get annual salaries of $50,000.' The British favored lower pay. We support the American view. Since this important banking institution is to be located in this country, the bosses should at least be on an economic par with our big league baseball pluyel's and bush league radio crooners. ^SATURDAY, MARCH 23, Possum's Choice The other day an opossum, shipped to somebody on Capitol Hill, gnawed his way out of .his crate and went wandering through the House Office, Building, Probably figured it was better to be investigated for Idbby.ih'K' 1 thttii to lie skinned, stewed, and tabled in committee.

Welcome to New York : City •.WASHINGTON COLUMN Average Day Of Crime BY PETEK EDSON NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Mar. 22, (NEAI —Every 20 seconds last year.-some- xxly in the United Stales commit- .ed a crime, and lot 1 that reason FBI's report on U. S. crime for 1043 makes some of thc blackest rending on record. The average clay of crime in the United Stnates adds up to 12 accidental killings, 18 murders, 31 rnpcs, and 1(>3 aggravated assaults. Those are' the crimes against persons: In crimes against properly, the score cnrrt for nn average <l<w shows 149 robberies. 062 cars stolen, 881 places burglarized nncl 2371 other thefts. The average of tlic year's 2D8.000 reported thefts yielded the criminal n $54 haul. The 139,000 burglaries averaged $118 worth of loot, the 22,000 robberies netted the stickup man ,$14C. There were 241.491 cars stolen—6G2 a (lay, 27,6 «n hour, right around the clock. But'n little over two-thirds of the stolen property wus recovered by the police. In reports from nearly 300 cities of more than .25,000 population, the total value of property stolen is put at $84,000,000. This is a 27 per cent increase over last yenr and a nice cnmnientfiry on the nation's Increased prosperity. DON'T BIjAME VETS FOR CRIME WAVK Pointing to sonic of the highlights f tile -annual crime statistics. PHI Director j. Edgar Hoover declares hat the increase in crinic Inst ear Is Ihe greatest in the 15-ycar lerlod that his organization lias >een tabulating figures. It makes a 12.4 i>er cent increase in cities fiiul nn 8.4 per cent increase in ural areas, for a total of 1,565,541 major offenses reported by the latlon's police. All these figures do is make good «very prediction on the trend towards a postwar crime wave. Only •wo slates last year showed decreases in crimes rates. They, wero^ Dakota and South Carolina. Nationally, rape increased five per cent, murders were up 10 per cent, burglaries 17, mid robberies 2.3. Th e Increases are in no sense attributable to returning veterans. That is the easy assumption in any Jostwar crime wave, but it Is not borne out by the figures. "A substantial portion of major crimes." snys. thc report, '-is attributable to persons under voting nge Age 17 stood out as the. predominating age among arrested j iiersons and age 18 was second... Over half of the arrests represented |>ersoiis who already had linger- |! print arrest records on file in the j. FBI." Fifteen per cent of both the boy and girl criminals had previous tlngervjrml records at age is. Aiul this figure rose-steadily to 42 per cent at age 20. This indicates that the bulk of problem comr s trom the habitual criminal, who Irnrns- lo commit, crime young and becomes a repealer. J. Edgar Hoover hns emphasized n few of the things that micjht be done. Hoover places blame for the rise of juvenile crime rtirocllv on the break-up of home life. 'Parental responsibility." he say.s bluntly, "is no tamer in style" PUNISHMENT KOR FOR THE PARENTS At « recent policr convention Hoover suggested that parnnts should be held vrsixmslblc for the crimes of thrir children.
