'·-.' ; · v. · . EDITORIALS-MOSCOW Is Ploying Some Shrewd Poker A MERICA is deeply concerned and Britain is plain angered 'by Moscow's-surly attitude in the · negotiations having to do with ' establishing p o s t w a r Poland's eastern-boundaries. Many will see In this rumpus a preview of what liei ahead for us when, after victory, participants jn this war seat themselves around the' peace table." 1 As we size up the matter, Russia has taken this effective though clumsy way 61 letting her western allies know that she will brook no interference when it comes to dealing with problems in middle and. eastern Europe, as distinguished from western Europe. By assuming that she is 'giving credence to the report--a,fictional report, we believe--that Britain is considering a separate peace with Germany, Russia has reasoned that she,- would stir a fear · in Britain 'that she herself might be considering a like course. Naturally Britain would be e terrified by that specter. At the least it would lengthen the war. At the most, it might lose the war Struck by such a fear, Moscow reasoned, Britain would be willing to abandon her concern over what happens to little Poland. In other words, it was a "softening up" device.' T HIS particular shaft was aimed at London. A fortnight ago notice 'was served on the Unite States in a like manner. Wendel Willkie in a generally friendly article written for ,the New York Times had made allusion to the possible helpfulness of Russia's allies in dealing with the worsening' Polish situation. Moscow in just about so .many words told Mr. Willkie -- and, indirectly his country -- to keep out of Russia's affairs. So what? Are we going to pursue an ideal and invite a rift in the solid war.iroht?:Or are we going to be realistic? . j T HE realism of the situation- is that Russia by saying hands ^ off in Poland has adopted the same fundamental principle that prompted our own Monroe doctrine. In that we told the world we .wanted no interference in the affairs of the western hemisphere. Realism also reminds us that Russia has done most of the fighting and most of the dying in this war up to now. If it hadn't been for Russia, .there wouldn't now or later be any Poland to quarrel Did You Know? By Frederic J.

' Could Be Fishing Iowa City Press-Citizen: A Swedish scientist says the secret device which enables our bombers to lay their eggs accurately through the thickest "soup" is "a telephotographic apparatus with infrared rays." That could easily be so. It sounds reasonable.

That is as it should be. But there is one more · logical step to be taken in conjunction with this refusal: A clean break in diplomatic and trade relations between the' united nations and the pro-nazi government of Argentina. The;united nations have too long pampered and appeased the militarists of Argentina who have kept power against the pro-ally sentiment of the Argentine people. This power has been maintained only because .the prosperity of boom times, based ' ' -- of fat in the orbit, causes a narrowing of the palpebi-al fissure in the Mangoloids--slit eyes. Measurements on different races show the average width of the palpebral fissure to be: Chinese, 26.S m.m.; Japanese, 28.9 rri.m.; European, 30 m.m.; Greeks, 32.9 m.m. This narrow slit also created the misapprehension of bad vision among the Japanese because it made the eyeball look flat. The habit of wearing glasses among the Japanese is far more widespread than ' among Europeans and is ascribed to poor I lighting coupled with much reading. Then the imitativeness of the Japanese plays a part--wearing I glasses marks the individual as of a higher cultural level.
