WASHINGTON. —Twenty yca/s after, Congress has just passed neutrality legislation which Indicates a belief that the American psoplc were a bit foolish lo let themselves get into the World War. The main plank in American foreign ]x>llcy today Is a determination to keep out of any future war. The Pittman and McReynolds neutrality bills, which have passed the Senate and House respectively, attempt lo eliminate, for the future, some of the things which helped gel America Into the war on the side of the Allies. Prior to April. 1917, the Unitet States Insisted on the right of it* citizens to ship arms and munitions to the Allies, the right o: American vessels to carry war materials, the right of America: citizens to travel on belligeren vessels into war zones unmolested and the right of Americans to lent! lently stern, but the Wilson fid- nlnlstmlion fell n break with England would be the worst l-lilng possible, and never pressed its joints Imrcl whoii dealing with the Allies.

England soon began going so far as to seize American goods bound to neutral countries near Germany. SECRET AGREEMENT Embargo measures, similar to some of those In 1937 neutrality legislation, frequently were urged in the 1914-17 period. But war trade began to boom. Munitions poured across the sea. In August, 1914, Secretary of State Bryan had told J. P. Morgan that war loans \vould be "inconsistent with the true spirit of neutrality." But as the need for financing our export trade became x greater, Assistant Secretary Robert Lansing was persuaded—and secretly agreed —that "commercial credils" were something else again. Germany, striving to offset England's restrictions on shippin» in nnia in May. 1915, Bryan declared that Germany had the right to slop belligerent-owned ships carrying ^onlraband and that such shippers •houldn't depend on American pas- engers for protection. America's note to Germany declared the "Indisputable right" of American citizens to travel on the high seas wherever they liked, as well ns the "sacred duty" of maintaining such rights, and demanded disavowal and discontinuance of submarine warfare. Germany stall- id. The Important Colonel House lotcci iii-his dinry about that time !ts personal belief that war with Germany was inevitable.

THE FIRST WAR LOAN Lansing stepped Into Bryan's shoes. He refused to listen to suggestions of Ambassador Gerard at Berlin of a compromise gunran- teeing safe conduct for American ships or specific belligerent passenger vessels. Within n few weeks Lansing and Wilson had agreed to notation of the first big wnr loan, n $500.000,•JOO Anglo-French issue, in this country. Our statesmen hnd bowed to the ;nct that if we couldn't land the Allies money to pay for the American goods they were buying, there would be bankruptcy in England and France and economic collapse here.
