'Wait and See' Habit Won't Deter Russia Like the warning of a rattlesnake before it strikes, Soviet propaganda has signaled another move of Russian aggression. Norway, Sweden and Iran have now heard the familiar and ominous words: Iran is being marie into a military base for an attack on Russia; Norway is selling out to the U. S.; Swedish mili- 'tarists are plotting behind the govcrn- ment's back to build bases for American planes and paratroops. Thig seerrfs to be the only, way the Soviets know' to plow Europe and the Middle East for the seed of communism. The same pretexts, with .slight variation!, were used in Romania, Hungary »nd Czechoslovakia. They were the prelude to the present demands o» Finland. The Russiaji technique is inflexible and without imagination. The objects of •its accusations may be-disgusted and aickened by the Kremlin's bald-faced lie*. At the same time they must be afraid. For if Generalissimo Stalin were to put his Red Army on the march, the combined military strength of non-Com-" munist Europe could not hope to oppose the Russian might for more than a few •hort weeks. In the face of these newest developments, Congress and the President should give the recommendations of Bernard M. Baruch a most serious consideration. They are grim recommendations, but they are also realistic. Russia's policy of expansion is backed by force and depends on force. It will not be abandoned until it is faced by a superior force. This must be clear to' all Americans intelligent enough to see what is going on in the world today and courageous enough to face the facts. We will not deter the Russians by what.Mr. Baruch calls our "wait and SC e habit." And there are two reasons why we cannot wait until the shooting starts. We cannot wait for the shooting to start beeaus no one wants it to start- not even the Russian people, still weak from the bleeding of World War II, s ijn striving to repair and restore their war- tora country; not even those thoughtless Americans who say, "Let's drop the bomb and get it over with"; not even the rulers of Russia, we suspect, unless the shooting would be against their present weak opposition, We cannot wait for the shooting to start because, unless non-Communist Europe , s given strength and sees rtreng-th behind it, the continent's free countries might surrender without a ( ftruggk to save a useless waste of life W« will not deter Russia by tenta- tmly suggesting registration but no draft, by side-stepping universal training, by gjivin* no thought to industrial BoWliataoB—without which both draft M4 universal training would be of little •vail, Jtr-^Baruch did not suggest military but that, too, may lie ncccs- fcnd-tean and a quick, intensive strengthening of our own defenses would be enough to show Russia that her gamble is lost. But there is now no time to "wait and see." The war is already on. And Russia is winning it, FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 104S The 'Lie-Down'— mpulse or Stratagem? We wonder whether the "lie-down strike" of Wall Street pickets was just a sudden inspiration, or whether a few had. planned it carefully and the rest followed suit, meekly and stupidly. It is hard to tell from a photograph whether 'a policeman with a night stick is trying to pull a striker to his feet or to club him to the ground. But 'one thing we're sure of—If such pictures are circulated in pre-election Italy, the Communists there will be quick to use the prone striker, the officer with his stick, and the magic name of Wall Street in a scarcely flattering story of their own composition. VIEWS OF OTHERS Backdown r rom Showdown The diplomatic battle of Berlin should be carried to Moscow. It is one which the Russians would doubtless prefer to see settled as a'sklrmlsh, with the advantages of a local victory falling to them. But the local victory would have ramifications anything but local. The Russian effort to squeeze the western occupying forces out of Berlin is being felt all over Europe. In a shooting war the Western Powers could hardly hold their position in Berlin. In the "cold war" they can hardly afford to give It up. Secretary Marshall's return to Washington from Bogota, where he is attending the conference of American stales, now becomes probable. Soviet intentions are plain. They are, in fact, so- thinly disguised as to indicate that Russian leadership wants not only the United States but all the world to recognize them. They need to be dealt with at the top 'level. Tlie Russian reasons for blocking roads and Insisting Oil inspection of trains—like the alleged overloading o[ highways and charges ol looting by the Western Powers—only add insult to Injury. Reports that the Russian authorities were prompted by knowledge that valuable industrial installations were .being removed from Berlin by the Western Allies may or may not have some basis in fact: What is more generally known is that Russian sources hinted some months ago that Berlin might become too uncomfortable for the Western Allies If th» American-British plans to merge their occupation zones in Germany were carried through. What the Russians are trying to do in Germany is to create something that looks like a showdown—under conditions in which the Western Powers might have to seem to back down. The fact is that (his is no real showdown on the Issues dividing East from West. But Italians wondering how safe a vote for freedom might be on April 18 will watch Berlin. A Russian success in Berlin, moreover, would tempt the Soviets to try lor the same thing in Vienna. As the Russians would have the world read it, the significance of these very limited tests would seem to be this: that when confronted by Soviet action the West- em Powers will hesitate to reply In kind. That could be a fatal misreading of the American attitude. So what the United States now needs to tell Moscow—the Politburo rallier than the Soviet occupation authorities in Berlin—is that the war nobody wants could come over Just some such heavy-footed management of intcr- Allled relations as this in Berlin. Certainly peace cannot be got by Russian pushing there, nor by American retreating. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. SO THEY SAY In the Driver's Seat Br'er Rabbit Has Many Aliases When He's Part ot a Fur Coat Sunday School Lesson By William E. Gllroy, D. D. It is not surprising that Sunday school lessons, sermons and comments on religion in general are based very largely on the Bible and on Biblical times, since the Bible is "God's book for man's life." Above all things also, it Is the book of the Gospels, the story of Jesus of Nazareth, the book of His life and teaching, and the interpretation of the reality and meaning of His Messlahshlp, and of His coming Into the world to be humanity's Savior and Redeemer. But many parts of the Bible have to do with the life of an ancient people and with the Individual lives of men and women who lived in a little land. It w»s situated between the great empires, warring for mastery in that ancient world, and In the history of the time seemingly of far more Importance than Palestine and its people. It Is the littls land that remains while the great empires—Assyria, Babylon, Syria. Persia, Greece,'and Rome—have all passed away. And that little land today, apart from Its ancient religious interest and the way In which successive generations have turned to It for guidance and inspiration, is still a center of tragic are centered there, By Harnun W. Nlchota (United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, April 9. (UP) — Mr. McGregor would have loved what went on in Room 1331 of the House Office Building. You remember Mr. McG, the man who gave Peter Rabbit an unsuccessful chase when he caught the cottontail reducing his cabbage patch. The Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committee, with some very noble assists from a parade at witnesses," was giving Peter R. and members of his family the old you- know-what. The committee was considering » bill to malce the fur people label their stuff. Call rabbits rabbits and skunks skunks. Cong. Uin B«c!iworth ol Rural Route 2, Gladewatcr, Texas, wan(ed U> know why we have to import rabbiUs for rabbit coats. What, he asked, is the matter with home grown rabbits? They grow some busters down his way. Max M. Albaeh ot A, Hollander & Sons, Inc., the witness, said he could answer that one. "American rabbits are plain no good," he said. "Too thin skinned. Australia and New Zealand grow better ones." interest. Vital issues Senators, One of Them Wearing $22 Shoes, Hear That Prices Soon May Take Another Leap , amid strife and struggle as in ancient times. And the world is watch- Ing, somewhat fearful lest the conflicts may Involve the whole world once more In war. From every standpoint there is reason to study that ancient land and all that happened there. Paul said that the chief advantage of the Jew (Romans 3:2) was that to the Jews had been committed the oracles of God. That statement is amply proven. While in other lands men were bowing down to wood and stone and worshiping false gods, in Israel devout men and women were seeking the true God. And they found Him, he 3<Idc in the parlance of the fur people another word for rabbit. Along about this time in the hearing, a couple of dozen lovely visitors filed into the committee room and took seats in the rear. Potential customers of A. Hollander & Sons Inc. They got there just In time to be shocked. Cong. Joe O'Hara, fat, bald and smart, looked down at the witness "If a rabbit is a rabbit," he asked, "why in thunder do they have io call it a 'coney?' And why do you have to call it 'mink-dyed-coney?' Isn't that fooling the ladies whom we love and who buy coats?" Mr. Albach adjusted his spectacles and said one question at a time, please. First "coney." That's the same as rabbit. Everybody knows that, he said. Mr. O'Hara said he'd be switched If he did until now.

Who, for instance, considering Palestine today, can fall to see the significance ot Nehemlah, leading his people from the Babylonian exile, helping to restore them in their ancient home, facing some of the problems Jews seeking restoration Lhere are lacing today? Surely in all of this there Is food for study and thought. The "Christian Herald," same years ago when the famous Dr. Talmadge was Its editor, used to have a pase entitled, "The Bible and the Newspaper." On this page current events were linked with Biblical parallels, or with some teaching that they emphasized. It was a wise emphasis.

And besides, the fur man asked, who ever heard of anybody charging mink prices for a rabbit?

Without so much as a take-your- leave, they put on their spring wraps and walked out. Earlier in the hearings, Mr. Henry Miller, director of Trade Practice Conferences and Wool Act Admin- istratration for the Federal Trads Commission, had argued the other side of the picture—in favor of letting the people know whether a fur coat is made ot rabbit or something else. There ought to be a law, ha said. The fur people, he alleged, have thought up some fancy handles for our low-life animal friends, par- ticulraly the rabbit.
