TUT p»y»ble la sdrance. _, ' • Unity- for Victory Tn • a letter to Prime Minister Churchill, President Roosevelt has ex- -pre'ssad hopo that Mr. Church ill's "line of fiction" in dealing with recent Greek problems-"may succeed in bringing the Greeks back h)to file Allied; Camp and 1.0,' participation ; against the barbarians." That is a hope • in : which all Americans will surely join., 'Mr. Churchill's line ofi action ifi basically a simple one. He has pledged the British government's support to the Greek king and his new government, and has given notice to tbe Greeks that domestic quarrels of a political nature mnsfc be put aside until the enemy is defeated. In fact, it is such a simple line of action that it seems a great pity- that it was not pursued earlier. ' , .. Wai- has a way of breeding, internal revolt when a country is losing. It-hap' pened in France and Yugoslavia and Poland after the Naxis came. It happened quickly in Italy after Sidy was taken. It happened in Germany and .Austria-Hungary and Turkey in the closing months of the last war. History is-full,of similar examples. But internal revolt is no condition from which to launch a counter-attack. It has weakened the valiant resistance of Greece, Yugoslavia and France, and 1 made a pitiable situation even less • bearable. It will impede Allied success in the invasion of Europe unless it is quickly checked. --Yet Britain and the United States ;' jive in a : positiou_ to insist upon a moratorium on family strife until the Nazis are driven out; Theirs are the armies and supplies of liberation. 'Mr. Churchill has shown the pattern of this insistence by liis very reasonable declaration that until. a country is free Great Britain 'recognizes the government which existed in that country when the war began, the regime which began the fight for liberation. ' If that had been done in the friendly countries mentioned above, a great deal of trouble and added burden for the Allied command might have been spared. But perhaps it is not too late, except in the case of Poland, to speed the day of victory by demanding unity, as a first and mutually advantageous requisite. Something for the White-Collar Boys ' 'Senator Blberfc Thomas of Utah has spoken out once more for the real forgotten man of this win'—the white- collar worker. Senator Thomas has been heard- before on the subject, since he is chairman of the Senate committee which has studied the plight of these fixed-income workers. Nothing constructive has yet been done for them; and probably little can ba done while the debate over cost-of-living statistics rages and no. one knows exactly how much of n beating these 20 million workers have taken. Rut it is obvious that they have taken a beatipg. Even as loyal an administration soldier as Senator Thomas admits that they have been squeezed between frozen incomes and rising prices. Ho has recommended that the War Labor Board at least remove controls on wages up-to $200 a month for family heads and $150 for single persons. Even before all the returns are in it would seem that this can be safely done. The white-collar workers are paying their share of taxes. Their food costs them as much as it docs the highly paid war plant worker or executive. They are buying War Bonds, too. And Senator Thomas' recommendation carries no threat of inflation. Easing the ceiling as far as he suggests would be nothing more than common justice. Mark ing Time, Too ' "DIRECT. L1NB '*M**t-''?'i* ••'•*•' '••''"*" "Just'think, Dud!
