Democrats' Philadelphia Show to Be Exciting Event k*der« that something would happen to gather their voters into a compact and cnthu»iaatie unit. But, on the eve of th« convention, that something doesn't Mem to have come off. Anyway, it will be interesting to see what happen* "at Philadelphia. And whatever doeg happen i» bound to be interesting. The cheers may sound as loud and as long as ever. But it is certain that when the convention does reach agreement, the result will be no rubber stamp of approval. HeDood It! VIEWS OF OTHERS The Democratic nomination may be in the bag for President Truman, and probably is. But anyone who thinks the impending Democratic National Convention will be an anticlimax to the Republican choice of a candidate may be in for a surprise. Even if you like Mr. Truman as the winner at l-to-100 odds, it's a safe bet that there will be some fireworks. A lot of voters can't remember any pre-Roosevelt Democratic conventions. : But those who do will recall that some of them were pretty exciting shindigs. The party has always had a wide variety of political thought, and its maneuvering has tended to be of the open-field, not the smoke-filled-room variety. Mr. Roosevelt changed all that. His immense popularity, and the tremendous Democratic successes it produced, left his delegates with little to do except cheer. It waa only in 1940, when the convention yelled for Paul McNutt for vice president and booed Mr. Roosevelt's choice, Henry Wallace, that an open rift was briefly apparent. But this year some bitter differences are almost sure to come to the surface. : Their causes are well known and well ', publicized. Southern conservatives don't like Mr. Truman's civil rights program. Northern liberals object to' what they consider a too-conservative domestic record, or to some foreign policy deci- ; sions. Labor leaders seem rather luke- ; warm. And so on. ; All these objections may seem to be . aimed personally at President Truman, ; but they probably aren't. It is reasonable to suppose that a lot of the grum- . bling has its origin in the discomfort that several groups of Democrats feel after 16 years with some very strange j political bedfellows. The Wallace third j party has removed most of the far-left i element that clustered under the JDemo- , cratic standard in the Roosevelt days. { But that standard still covers some very 1 opposite philosophies within the regular { party ranks. Air. Roosevelt had the sure and astute ( touch which somehow made many of . these different elements think that they ; were getting just what they wanted. ; Now it looks as .if the varying groups may try to get what they want—if not in a candidate, at least in a platform— : though by doing so they would widen , present rifts even farther. A common rallying point is not apparent at the : moment. Even the record of the 80th , Cangress, which almost surely will be ( the prim* objective of the Democratic , attack, cannot be sure of a unanimous s Democratic fusillade. For not a few of ; the party'i members supported the Re- 1 publican-aponsored measures which will i he most roundly assailed. There WM a hope among parly An Understanding With Russia? The firm jtatement of Hie British-American purpose to "stay In Berlin" made by Secretary Marshall and Foreign Minister Dcvln is a good foundation for settling that question with the Russians. This is to mainly because stated purpose 1* tt once backed by a striking demonstration of power. F]eets ot British and American planes flying food In to the German population have apparently impressed Russians as well as Germans. It would be foolish to assume that this "battle of Berlin" has been won. Russian withdrawal from the Konimsndatura serves notice that the Soviet Intends to pursue it* cluim that the conditions requiring four-power occupation ot the city have ended. It Is possible that every imaginable device or annoyance will still be tried to make Berlin uninhabitable for the Western Powers. Soviet diplomacy goes on tht theory that "it never hurts to try." In Berlin the Russians may not be satisfied until they have exhausted all potential means of pushing Britain and America out. But they will drop any particular weapon as soon as It is stanchly and effectively countered. So now we can expect tangible results from pending negotiations. General Clay has probably been ready for some time to help cue difficulties caused the Russians by the American switch In currency and to make other adjustment*. But the Soj'let move to starve Berlin had to be dealt with first, otherwise any American concession would have looked like an effort lo buy off the Russians. Now all diplomacy makes the best L-«;'EaIii It can. But those who have negotiated with the Russians declare that they are especially prone to push their demands to tlw last notch and to regard any concession as a weakness. This characteristic enters Into every calculation of the possibility of arriving at an "understanding with Russia." This newspaper has deprecated effort to build up hate of Russia and also the proposals of those who declare war Is inevitable. But we are convinced that many who urge a settlement with Russia are mistaken In thinking that It Is simply a matter of a few kind words or diplomatic concessions. They Ignore basic factors in Soviet thinking. They discount fanaticism which is sure the world must be saved by communism. They overlook (he tact that Russian leaedrs accept the doctrine of Inevitable conflict and regard any agreement with non-Communist* as merely a temporary expedient. A major source of the power of Russia's niltrs Is this doctrine of conflict. They insist thut all capitalism is brutal, monopolistic, and imperialistic. Much of their reason for being would vanish If It became apparent that this concept of the democratic coi'.r.trics was untrue and that conflict was unnecessary. So an "understanding" which Implies real friendship is not attractive to them. But neither is war. for their people are weary and their country devastated. So there is some hope that with firmness in the West an agreement to disagree -a settlement advantageous to both Russia and the West—can eventually be achieved. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. \Nichols Tires of USES Routine; Wins Gardener's Classification Vandenberg Resolution in Senate Shaping U.S. Policy Toward UN is Good But Not Good Enough THI DOCTOR SAYS or the poisonous snakes, rattle- Ry Harmon W.

Most important favorable action was Senate passage of the Van- : denberg resolution, reaffirming US. intent to work for peace through UN.

It backs up the President, Slate Department and U. S. mission to the UN under Ambassador Wnrrcn Austin.
