"the establishment of a supra-national political -force as a protection against , fresK wars of aggression." '-'Uiitil Hitler came along the world's great;thinkers were content to devote • thQirTialents to more abstract, pursuits t thaii trie "day-to-day problems of gov- ., crument. Many of them considered tlte ( hurly-burly of politics to be beneath if; them, and they were undoubtedly i-jghl. • ' It required a touch more of genius to | unlock the -secrets of nature through j science, to mold our decent instincts | into patterns of ethics, to-cvnlualc the I lessons of history, than it does to fit j these contributions into' practical daily pile. j But Hitler showed Uie great think- f ers that the air of bad politics can | stifle creative thinking. He showed ! (hem that paranoia and a gift for rah| bk-roiismg coukl pervert enlightened' i discoveries into powerful weapons of 5 death. He forced the scientists fro;n their attempts to bring men a little closer to perfection and turned them to tasks of destruction. Hitler has delourcd mankind from • its millennial march away from savagery to a new, mcchanr/ed, super-efficient savagery. Before that painful march can be resumed- thinkers' who bdong 1 in the van must make sure that there are no more detours. At least Dr. Einstein thinks so. .11 is too bad that this is so, for the thinkers will have a very hard time of it. They,will rediscover that men are r more;,receptive to rabble-rousing than to reason., They will run into practical difficulties. If (hey choose to speak . through books v they must compete with the popular literature of the moment. If they, chooge to speak to the world through ; 1Kc "miracle' of radio, they will have to* .fight an uneven battle for attention! "with sw;ng bands and soap operas. '" In this country they will be up against a situation in which military ' rejections" for educational deficiencies ! are more numerous than battle casualties. In other countries it will be even worse.'.T3 ( ut perhaps the hardest task of all will. Confront the thinkers in Ger- , man;v-.and Japan. There they must not only persuade the common man of the advantages of a "supra- political force" to keep"the peace; they must also help to re-educate a whole people away from the poibon of racism, super-statism, and a generally barbaric national philosophy.. 'It's'a job'for an Einstein,'and no mistake. vBLYTHEVIMiB. ((ARK.)' COUKIBR NEWfl Effective immediately, the word "catastrophe" will bf eliminated from all reports nnd orders and.^also from the vocabulary in generals-German o/der In Italy. Remedy Needed ."It is ''utterly wrong to have lo go to the President with a labor controversy. It is (particularly bad in time of war, with all the other duties to which the Chief Executive and'Commander in Chief must give attention. There should be somewhere in the goevrmnent an agency with .sufficient all-over authority to ... make final decisions." With this statement Robert Watt, A. F. of L. member of the War .Labor Board, added the' first labor voice to an earnest and frequent plea from other sources. The situation is not only unfair to a busy President, as Mr. Watt suggests, but it is also unfair to the parlies of a controversy.' Vague authority makes for delayed decisions, impatience. The President, with his war powers ^aiicl, if necessary, an assist from Congress, could remedy the situation. New Resolution. Republican .'governors, senators and rcpreKentativcs to the number of 114 have gone on record as opposing any attempt, by a future Republican president for a third term. They arc silent as regards any 'similar attempt, by a Democratic chief executive, but pending a definite statement, it may be assumed thai this new resolution falls into the category of those burning issues which transcend party lines. Patriotic Sacrifice A marine medical officer in the South Pacific has discovered that common, ordinary gelatin dessert makes an ' effective surgical paste ""when used in connection with fracture bandages. Would anyone bo interested in joining us in a movement to free (his newfound-remedy 100 per cent for the armed forces, while wo civilians nobly and patriotically subsist on pie for the duration? _• SO THEY SAY We nre not, Inradlng France; we are liberating France.
