The Immediate issue, as explained by Moscow, was Poland's request that the International Red Cross investigate Ccfiimn el.-iims ' Ihal the Russian's had murdered 12.000 Polish officei?, and buried them in a common grave near Smolensk. The Russians claim that tlic Germans murdered those ollicers and, accuse Ihe Poles of falling in wit! Ihe Nazi lie dial they had In slain by the Russians. Complicated liackgruuml Actually, there are more underlying causes and they reach hack over many years—even centuries— racial, political and historical. Hussla and Poland arc old enemies. The Poles once held Ihe Kremlin for a lime in 1610 and laid siege to it In icn. The Tartars and Cossacks rode roitglishod on errands oj pillage Into Poland, and ill 1654, Ihe Czar's armies Invaded Poland to launch Ihe brutal and bloody Thirteen Years 'War. Poland fought exhausting border •wars with Russia, on and oil, un- lil she was bled white and in 1772 there came the first partition, in which Russia, Prussia and Auslria divided the Polish loot. The . second partition. In 1793, reduced Polund to one-third of her original dimensions, with Russia again getting the lion's share.

September .1, 1939, . larid, and then, wllh .Russia, undertook ' the fourth pnitlilaning. As the world began to marvel al the of Russian arms against Ihe Germans—when Ihosc two finally and inevilably fell'out —Soviet diplomacy assumed n stronger, more emphatic lone. As- fiired finally thai upon thc rted Army rested the best hope ol smashing Germany, Russia—perhaps prematurely — asserted her territorial aspirations before the oilier great powers. Poland, of course, would suffer, for Russia demanded thc entire eastern half of Poland in llic pou-war .settlement. There was an obslaclc in tiic way, however—namely, thc Allan- tic Owner, which denies big nations the right of territorial aggrandizement a(, tiic expense of small nations. Thc Polish government in exile made clear lls slaml on ilii.s matter and demanded that Poland's pic-war frontiers Ijc restored. Tension Increased The execution 'by Russia of llic two relish socialists, Erlich and Allcr. in December of 1042 irourcd oil on tlie smouldering fires and widened the gap between the two governments. Russia, therefore, knowing she held nil Ihe aces in this p.n mc n r power politic.';, decided, one might deduce, lo .shout the works. By breaking with Poland's exile government, she has left open only tw-o alternatives to Ihe other United Nations. They must.:cilhcr side with the Polish view dial Russia i.s not entitle to pre-war Poland's eastern .ten! lories, or they, must recognize tli' legitimacy of Russia's claims. Russia seems in no mood Ii compromise. And since a bread in Ihp United Nations front a this time might cause irreparable harm, there i.s a strong possibililj that the Soviet will get what she wants. Ncilhcr side has displavct moderation in Ihe events leariin;, up to the' diplomatic break. 'Jims neither side can be expcclcri lo be willing to conciliate without slro outside pressure being brought to bear. Allied diplomats, unwilling lo censure cilhcr Poland or nus fiia because of possible grave repercussions, dc.scribc Hie diplomatic break as "unfortunate." .Unless a tclllement Is reached soon, it seems likely that Russia will wrilc off live Polish government In London permanent)}' and .set up a second Polish government in exitc in Moscow.
