The first phase, in which Russia participated and China did not, was scheduled for three weeks, hut continued for six. The closing caused about as much exdlomoiit • ,1.5-the end of. the b.isobnl! season . in' Philadelphia. One reason for the luck of excite- ' men t.'was that the public knew very little about what was being accomplished toward finding a busis for a iworld security organization. Undersecretary of State Stettinius assured the <yorld that progress was made mid . much unanimity of 'purpose achieved. But satisfaction in this is offset by the puzzling and persistent reports of ,-.a. majority point of disagreement. , This has to do with the proposed 1 world .organization's procedure if one.of the major powers is accused of aggression. Russia is understood to have -m^ sisted on the accused power's right to vote on the accusation. This country and Britain reportedly .favored denial of thai voting right. The puzzling thing is how a /group of big-league diplomats could fine) themselves stymied by such a <|ueslion. Certainly there is only one possible answer, which any reasonably well-informed person should be able to give in short order. And it would be something like this; < The present-proposal for a world' security organization \vo\ikl .rcijuire .a unanimous vole of the permanent J major power) mpmbcrs on the executive council before action could be taken to halt aggression. s But a great power, accused of .aggression and allowed to vote, certainly would^not vote itself guilty. ^ , •• Accordingly, if one of, the great powers were clearly the aggressor, -the woi-ld security organization would -be "powerless to act. The elaborate machinery of arbitration, sanctions and force couldn't even get started. ^, Besides obstructing the function of . any world peace group, such a ,provision would certainly commit the fratil- ers of the world security plan io a policy, of one set of laws for the little powers, and a different set for the big ones. That's scarcely the way to build the foundations for a peaceful commonwealth of nations. ,,, Certainly the waiting world doesn't begrudge the first Dumbarton Oaks delegates six weeks instead of three -to begin their momentous task. But if part of that time was ;taken .up jn arguing such an obviously unworkable proposal as that attributed to Russia, and then winding up in dis- ,agreement, it may mean that the steps •toward world peace are going lo be slow 'and'faltering. One More Chance' When the \yar is over we have "one more chance to prove that'our form of government is best," Vice President Wallace,told an audience in Troy, N. Y., (he ollicr'night. He also; told them that "after this war there will not be unemployment in Russia. We've got to do as well as they. We must do better or else step back." . : We agree with Mi: Wallace that full employment is of paramount importance. So does the whole country, as witness the many varied :»nd earnest progrisms'/ftimcd at that necessary goal. •We don't agree with Mi'. Wallace's inference that full employment is the otto •criterion by which to judge our form of .-•government, If it were, we wouldn't have to turn •lo the promise of full employment in (Russia after the war. We could turn lo 'fiej'majiv i>"fore the war. One ol' the chief arguments of Hiller's friends in this country, once i>poi) a time, wan: "Well, at least you'll have to admit that •he wiped 'out unemployment in C!cr- • many." . Mr; Wallace is on safe ground when he suys Dial there will be' no unemployment in Russia after this war. lie could also safely say that unless Soviet .government policy makes a swift and •radical change in the meantime, there will be no freedom of speech or press in postwar Russia.' ' For many years the Russian has .-read the news his government wanted him to read. For. many years his government has dictated his likes and dis- ' likes in books, plays and music, even friends, ; This ..isn't'to.•suggest that submersion of the individual in the/state is an inevitable prerequisite of full employ- •ment. Nor is'it,'intended to be a condemnation of Russian communism. The Russians obviously love their homeland and their way of life. No one can deny that they have fought like heroes lo .defend both. •'. We don't believe,' however, that the majority of Americans would trade their miiiquc guarantee of life,, liberty and •the pursuit of -happiness even for a job; Mr. Wallace .clearly inl'ovs that, we ., have never yet proved that our form -o'f government, as opposed to its operation, is on /trial. We think that the • problems of employment can and'will ibe solved without altering that form. Neither presidential candidate:, nor any candidate for congress, to our 'knowledge, has suggested otherwise. -We doubt that the vice .president will .find much popular support for- his "one inore-cluince" ,uHima(.um.

"SLEUTH" I guess Ersklne Johnson heard someone make the crack, too., for he called me up. "What's all this stuff about your three loves?" he nskcd. "I know all about Betty and Victoria Elizabeth, the new blonde pin-up girl that arrived at your house a couple of months ago, but where does the third love come in?" Boy, what a lelriown for super- sleuth Johnson when I laughed and said, "baseball!" I've been a bnseball fan since I was ft kid. There have been a lot of rumors circulated about me. I read n story about myself in a newspaper the other day that was a dirty lie. It said. that recently when I was interviewing a number of musicians for a spot that was open in the band, I asked one of the boys what l:c played. "The violin," replied the boy. "No. that's not what I mean," supposedly replied James impatiently. "What position do you play in baseball?" The truth of the matter is: first I ask n prospective member of the band what instrument he plays then I ask him ivhal position he can play on the Harry James baseball team. HOW AUOliT l.A GIlAUUv? All of tills brings up the question Hint 'is put to me so many times. "What -does Mrs. James— | some people call her La Orablc— | think of all Ihis baseball business? Doesn't she raise a fuss?"

Hitler didn't mind the ews being Jewish as long as they vere useful; and the Jews did not iclicvc Ihe Nazis really meant to isfranchise them—that was just election talk." Part of the blueprint for dom- nation perfected in Landshcrg ailed for calculated vilification nd calumny of the Republic in he persons of its leaders. Then here was the money check-off rom the industrialists and bribes pressed out of Jews trying to buy heir future safety. How far •ould the Nazis go without being charged with • libel, blackmail, nd extortion? They needed expert legal advice. PROM Ludendorff Hitler had learned the necessity of strik- ; with a small, closely Unit well-disciplined group. He learnec lliat even a small parly, it blindly obedient to its leader, can undermine bigger factions that lack unity and aggressiveness. But how could he extend that obedience to a whole nation? RudoH llcss, the former officer and student who worked will Prof. Knrl Haushofcr at the Munich University, had induced his teacher to go to Landsberg with him and meet Adolf Hitler. The professor was rather apprehcnsiv and so were his hosts. But Hitler had lost some of his shyness. started propounding his theory that "by compelling even the hesi lant to become accomplices ii acts of violence, you automatically make them your slaves." Em: Maurice, then acting as Hitler' secretary, later told of. the inci dent. "After Hitler had spoken, th professor got up and looked at hii lor R moment," Maurice said; "the he smiled. Wo knew that fron then on there was nothing th professor would not do for ou Fuehrer." Developing this technique, Hil Icr was to involve the entire Gcr man nation o| 65 million poopl as his accomplices in crime. Th azis never denied the existence o2 onccntralion camps on their owii oil; they made no secret of crimes ommitted in countries conquered y the Germans—in the name o£ 10 German people.

For hours on end, Professor [aushofer lectured the "students." To brought other professors to elp formulate new plans for Ihe onquest of the world in peace and n \var. As Hitler's knowledge of •cograpliy enlarged, he would call or Germans or nationals from Ihe lilterent countries under study, to ound out local possibilities for his uture expansion. Many of Hitler's lieutenants had been bovn abroad; others had use- ul family connections outside ; ermany. They pooled their news of developments. Rudolf Hess, born in Alexandria, had not reached Germany until he was in lis teens; the German Ball, Alfred Rosenberg, pointed lo the riches o£ Russia, to the vast stretches of "and that could be opened up to Herman exploitation; Ernst Hanf- >tacngel, the hall-American, had studied at Harvard.

Those of Hitler's men who had been born or lived abroad could inform him on the friction which already existed between the different racial groups. They sat long hours evolving ways to increase and exploit this friction to their own ends. And questions of race or nationality cannot bo separated from the Jewish problem. .(To Bo Continued) •
