STEWART 'Central Press Columnist ; HELPING, THE British, the Jhinese and the East Indian Dutch Is all right, of course. However, the suggestion's beginning to be heard in Washington that the United. Nations are somewhat neglectful of the possl bility of capitalizing anti-Axis feeling in countries the totalit a r i a n s have van - quished and oc- c upi e d . but which certainly would be more than appreciative of encouragement, to rise against 'em now. Taken separately they undoubtedly couldn't succeed at it. but it's pointed out that, collectively, they're numerous enough to be pretty formidable. It's taken for granted that France would be solidly Free French if its people believed they could oust the Nazis and keep 'em ousted. There also are the Low .Countries, the Balkans and the Scancli- iwvins, including Sweden, which isn't occupied but can't be otherwise than exceedingly apprehensive as to its future unless Herr Hitler's stopped effectively. In the Far East, 25.000,000 .Koreans, annexed by the Japs in aOlO and abominably oppressed ever since, are said to be fairly spoiling to join tho Chinese in a fight for freedom, at the first .prospect, of s. reasonably good show.. They're a sizable clement in Japan itself, too., having been drafted thither as wretched coolie laborers, and ought to be first-rale fifth columnists m. the "United Nations' behalf. . ; But to return to the European Held: Italy Ready, Too Italy's reckoned to be about as much *Gcrmnniy'conquered, and as resentful of it. as any of the small democracies that the Nazis have overrun. This isn't necessarily to say that Signer Mussolini is in a frame o' jnind to dissolve his partnership with Adolf. An Italian severance of relations with Germany hardly couU! miss involving Benito's local overthrow, which he wouldn't lltfc, naturally, though it may \be he regrets today that ever he tied up with the Fuehrer. • ' - '' • All indications are that'the'Ital- ian masses, though, would - break- with the.Germans if given a toler- tioly promising opportunity, Tlioir -difficulty ts'that, should they do so without strong and prompt, back• Ing,, the Nazis.would invade ,.'em. and" trample 'cm flat. • . Nevertheless, -they're about'40,- 000,000 strong in man and'woman power, and svould bo worth having an democratic Allies, besides which It surely woul^ be demoralizing 1 'to Gel-man morale £p have, 'em,.cut loose. ' The fact Is that the United Na-. tlons 1 leadership's attitude toward, tho Italians Is different from its attitude toward the Germans-and, the Japs. • The Germans, arc blamed for having acquiesced in Herr ,Hitlci*. The Jftps are blamed for being led by the nose by their military class,,' tho Samurai. The Germans likewise arc regarded as barbarians predominantly, though with some exceptions, and the Japs are assessed as inherently treacherous, as well as mean scrappers. The Italians, on the other hand, are spoken of as moderately chivalrous enemies. They didn't behave 'like it in their war with the Ethiopians, to be sure, but that's, at* tributod to their command rather than to their rank and file. Stories arc told of them as comparatively decent more recently, perhaps because it's inbred in them or per- hapa because this is ono of the times when they'd prefer not to fight. Benlto Civilized One* Even Benlto Mussolini used to have a civilized reputation once upon a time, He's despised today, as a Hlttcrian tool, just as Adolf's hated. I can remember, though, when he was just an ordinary Milan, newspaperman, and I've known Americans who made his acquaintance in that era and described him ns an agreeable personality. He slid into power at a juncture when Italy was in awful ecdnomic shape and effected considerable improvements. Later' he developed dicta- torlnlly, but I fancy it was more' or less by accident. Fascism,; in short,' doesn't seem' <to be Italian philosophy as Nazism Is to-Germany, • .',-..-.'• The nub of it is; ' . •There are; others, besides .the arnica .and ...fighting , United Nations, who mig'h't profitably be helped. .Why not give"em a boost? Thcylrc . essentially, .as much, a part of the United Nations as" Maine'or Arizona are'parts of the United States.- Wouldn't it be good policy to get them into the federation? They'll, be ••more of a bother- to the-Naias and the Samurai than we arc, from, this 'far off. > "' o- WAR IN EUROPE A YEAR AGO, I FEB. 14, 1941 My United Press Homo, 'ofllclally annoiihcod 'Inn'dlng of Brlllsh . paraph utis t troops • .-in Southorir Italy on February ; JO.' . -.Admiral Klchisnhuro iNOnuira presented credentials to President Hoosovelt as Japanese Ambassador to U.
