Now. Dr. Was-sermann In greatly concerned at what he calls the Soviet Union's "Westward Ho" policy. The j-jpup In Czechoslovakia, the move on Finland and the iu- sicle attack on Italy involve regions which he has studied first hum), and • he sees all this activity as Stalin's maneuver to get to the frontier in lorce. to occupy strategic positions (or further advances. Dr. WaJwcrinmiH calls the Red military pnct wll.h Finland "iho latest installment In payment of Stalin's smile nt Yalta." He refers to Ihe agreement by which Finland nnd eastern Europe were left in Russia's "defense .sphere." He sishts across the shank of the globe, alon? tlie great Circle, nnd points out that it is only 1.000 nillas from the forefinger of Finland that points across the top of Sweden to Icelnr.il nnd Greenland—oulpcMs of But the move from Finland over Sweden and Norway would come later. To dale, Stalin Is only testing Ihe "Yalta-Polsdam" line, says Dr. Wasserman—the western boundary o( Ihe sphere presented to him hy America and Britain at the Yalta and Potsdam conferences. The preparations of Italion Communists to take over Italy after the elections April 18 are preliminary to Stalin's plan of moving across the Yalta-Potsdam line at Us uuthern end—if we will let him get away with it^-says Dr. Wasser- niftim. "Note thai, before he moved lor- ward on his Hanks, Stalin secure;! his center." Dr. Wajsermann sayc, I pointing to Czechoslovakia— and to what he calls the Saxonic Triangle. Tins Is the area south imd west of Berlin which America and Britain presented to Russia at Yalta, even before It was captured by on: troops. This highly industrialized area rich in minerals—including uran'lum orts-is a bulge into the Is at the culturally, and it controls Ihe My waterways of the Danube and tlie Elbe. Hitler, following out the Heartland theory, made Czechoalo- vkia the target of his first major grab when he was' preparing to go to war. It is one of the principal tenets of geopoliticians that any strong power which controls Bohemia Is in position to move swiftly to the Mediterranean and the AV- lantic. I( is a fine springboard either for the German "drang nacli osten" (drive to the East) or for the Russian "Westward. Ho." If Slalin attempts to take over Italy he will be violating the Yalta- Potsdam Line. This he has not done n his Csech coup or In his pact with Finland, Dr. Wasserman points out. But once this line Is crossed, Dr. Wassennin says, th«»^ Is nothing In Europe now lhat can prevent the Red tide Irorn sweeping .0 the Atlantic. Dr. Wasserman refers to the map again to show that if Italy is lost to the Communists, it will mean tlie low of the Mediterranean Sea to , the Western World. Italy, with its ! islands of Sardinia, Pantellerla, and Sicily, cuts across the middle or the sea; Ihey are stepping stones to North Africa. "Loss of Italy would mean the loss of Greece. Turkey and tris whole Near East,' 'Dr. Wassermaim says, "and it would mean cutting oil Alrlca, the last reserve of food, raw materials and settlement space lor Western Europe. And a Soviet- controlled Italy would open the way for Infiltration of Argentina and populations These are the reasons why Dr. Wassernian is urging his own geopolitical theory for the West: '"We should push Ihe Monroe "unfortunate to refer to the objective ot our foreign policy as the containment of Soviet Russia." "That depreciates the high purpose of our foreign policy," Byrnes told 1692 University of Pennsylvania graduates at commencement exercises. "It does not distinguish our foreign policy from what unfortunately appears to be the foreign policy of the Soviet Union, namely, Uie containment of the United States of America." "Our foreign policy, as I see it," Byrnes said, "should be to support law and freedom In the world, to prevent agresslon, acid to promote economic health and political tolerance."
