S. May Try to Hall e's Death Dance Euro Unless a number of Wnshingtoii correspondents) are mistaken, Mr. Roosevelt is already groping about in tho depths of his official hat for the long cars of another rabbit. • /This rabbit, when he pulls it oul, is expected to take the shapo of o spcc- taciilar summons to the great nations of the earth to attend a great peace '. and disarmament conference. A Loni don paper thinks the call will bo issued "within 30 days." The president has been under a good . deal of pressure to "do something," • ever since the current war scare crime • over the horizon. He has not moved .. so far, it is said, because no one has been able to suggest anything ho could do which might be of any particular •use; but the rumor's that (10 already has his fingers about the rabbit's oiira • will not down. We have a tradition in. this. country • that no American statesman qvev goes , lo a weighty European conference without coming back wearing a barrel in place of his pants. Woortvow Wilson's sad experience at Versailles, has not yet been forgotten— and no politician is apt to forget what the American electorate did to Mr. Wjlson after he came back from Versailles. ! An American president who sets olit lo lead Europe to the way of^Wce . frees one grave danger: ho has . to succeed, once he starts. To begin with, a peace and disarmament conference which fails is worse than no conference at all, It leaves the world in a sadder fix than it was ,in the lirst place. It increases the animosities and suspicions it was designed to iiuel). It reduces the world's hopes, and increases that public, resignation to war which is the best guarantee that war will eventually come. On top of that, the American who surrvmons such a conference breaks his country's tradition of aloofness If the conference fails, America is in European politics up to its nock. By taking the lead in an ciVort to head' olf a war, it assumes a certain amount of responsibility for the war when it finally comes. . All these things can bi counted on to restrain the president's hand. And yet ' when they are all added up and stu'died' ^tUcy may not be -enough U, prevent OUT OUR WAY him from pulling out (hat rabbit, lifter all. For Europe today i.s till too deafly whirling around in a dance of dentil. It is no moYc figure of .speech to my tliiil European civilixntion I'H on the verge of committing suicide; it is sober, demonstrable fact. If there is anything on earth America can do to stop the dance and slay the .suicide, America can hardly avoid doing it. Arid no, in spite of tradition ai)il precedent, we may yet see an American president drming cards in th« perilous, unpredictable European game of poker. ULHIitiVlLLE '(AUK.)' COUU1EH NEWS 'ji Tampering With Truth Several jUsim in recent IIOWK prove again that foreign propaganda and censorship tend more toward the ridiculous than the sublime. Fascist newspapers, for instance, have claimed famed "Bullalo JJ/I!" as a local boy. The Iowa-born plains hero, they reveal, was really a native of BarbigarcMO, Italy, and was "full of Fascist courage and during." the other day a lingo wave swept over the Italian liner Kox, killing-two persons. :Siuce ilalian papers were ordered to print not a line of the incident, it is: apparent thai Duce's subjects lire hi 'trclHlio idea that even Neptune dares not bo aggressive in thu presence, of anything Fasc'istic. And a Na/,i news organ has produced with a flourish alleged evidence that the famed liberal, Benjamin Franklin, ..was anti-Semitic. This, happily, is refilled by an American autlior- ity on Franklin. Wore appropriate terms for this would seem to be iionscnse-orshin or imprOper-gamia. 'Still A Weather Vane.? Probably if, was asking top much, to expect that the Ulaln'c legislature would actually luiopt the bill which , would have moved, the state election dale, iii; presidential 'campaign. 'years, back to the date of the national eleclion: The Maine house of representatives snowed the bjll under the other flay, after a representative had declared that the early: date brought the state hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of publicity every four years. The country 'docs focus its. eyes on Maine in every presidential campaign— .no ; rt,onbt about that. Whether it will ever again he .'quite as •ardent in its •scrutiny, after what happened last fall, is open to doubt. But since the national party leaders will always pour money and speakers into' Maine to make as good a showing us possible in thai early eloelion, Maiuo's politicians naturally decided to hold onlo a good thing when they had if, . . even if it isn't (|uite so good as it used to be.
