Club Hears of Threats I to Future Speaking on "The Responsibilities of the World Democracies," Andre Michalopoulos, f o r m e r Greek minister of information, told the Woman's club Tuesday afternoon in Radio chapel that there must be unity and collaboration among the western democracies, so that democracy is at last made safe for everybody. "Anyone who might imagine that the present war is just an independent occurrence sprung out of the blue is mistaken," Mr. Michalo- poulos said. "This war did riot begin in September, 1939, and it may not end when hostilities c-ease. I would speak of it as a hundred years war. "Looking back in the history and tendancies of aggressor nations ,, consider that the German state had Si never at any time known what de- ftS mocracy means. The Germans have "' never ruled themselves or aspired to rule themselves. They have always been ruled by tyrants-- by a clique, the junkers or a military class. As far back as 1848, a few ·1/5 Germans aspired to have a free inform of government. They were K I ruthlessly put down. The same ..thing happened in the '80s. |)4. "The 3 great migrations of Ger- .fjmans to America were the result o£ f,-|the oppressive quality of the Ger- ·jjman state. The Germans brought 2 Sgreat virtues with them--application and industry. This German population which came with tho=e qualities developed in an atmosphere of peace and managed to form progressive communities. "But this oligarchy wedged itself w the center of Europe. The junk- ers ruled everything, later Bismarck made what was a tendency into a policy of state." Mr! Mi- chalopoulos spoke of the wars provoked by Bismarck against Austria and France toward the establishment of autocracy in Germany and its attempt to dominate Europe. "The same tendency remains," he said. "Hitler and his gang are only a. form of the same class which claims and obtains the willing submission of the peo- les in Mr. Michalopoulos pointed out that on the one side we have oligarchy, represented by Germany, diametrically opposed to democracy. "It is important that we should hear this in mind in regard to the future," he said. "We must consider factors as they are, not as we wish them to be. The Germans have been brought up to be slaves.

As · a second consideration, Mr Michalopoulos described for bis audience the situation of Greece before ano* during the war. "On Oct. 26, 1940. Greece was still neutral--a small country in southeastern Europe--population rapt quite 8 million--area a little bigger than Iowa, but a country much poorer.

On only one 3rd o the territory can food be grow to supply the people. To the north nearly the whole of Europe wa under the heel of the axis. All ha succumbed to the horrible tyrann and misery of the new order." He described a dinner given or that evening in Athens by the th Italian minister for the Grecl government and certain member ol Athenian society at svhich th minister, Count Grazi had told hi guests that the axis nations rep resented a new order whict would bring prosperity while th democracies, effete and decaden couJd be considered already de feated. He added that Greece am Italy had always been friends an always would be. Less than 2'day later, he presented an ultimatum to the Greek government de mandmg part of the northern ter ntory for Italy and freedom fo the, German armies to conduc their operations against the Brit ish in Egypt. Quoting what he called to be ; reasonable estimate of Greece' possibilities based on her resources Mr. Michalopoulos said that i was thought by a government of ficial if it were possible to hole, the mountain passes intact for a night, they might be able to las 3 or 4 weeks, at the longest weeks. They had no tanks, fev airplanes. "That was a rational estimate,' Mr. Michalopoulos said. "Th' spiritual factor had not been esti mated." He spoke of the angrv crowd o£ Athenians who wen down into their city, determine to do their best in the war anc said that they represented tin nearest thing to the wrath of Goc that one could see on earth. "Tha was the unpredictable factor And this is a war between the spirit o good and the spirit of evil and therefore any manifestation o faith had definite significance." Mr. Michalopoulos described the conditions in which the quickly mobilized frontier Greek anm fought in the early days of the War. The army was quickly mobilized," he said. "We have conscription in Greece in whirl every man has 18 months military training. Conscription is a good democratic system. It teaches men that in the essentials of life, anc nothing is more essential thaii defending one's country, that" men are equal." al It was one thing to march the army up in the mountain passes It was another thing to keep i' supplied. In those crucial hours all would have been lost if a miracle had not occurred. That miracle saved the army, the country and western civilization. "The women of the villages 2,000 of them, led as if by telepathy, walked down to the supplv centers and insisted that they would take supplies up to the army and they did so--carried ammunition, food and heavy equipment They went up and down for 10 days. One hundred and twenty were killed front lines. in the It is not a boastful statement to say that this miracle saved western civilization. The effect of iny spiritual action radiates far seyond its original intention. The Greeks were able to defeat the Italians in battle for 6 months and to hold off the nazis for 7 veeks. It was the plan of the Ger- nans to get hold of Greece to aunch an attack on the British They sent the Italians to do it tie- cause they thought they could "There was an Italian army j n he Lybian 'desert. The Germans vould launch a frontal air attack m the northern coast of Egypt. -Tsing barges and planes, "they vould fake Syria, march throifb ^alestine to the east of the Suez ind completely encircle the Brit- 5h. Egypt might well have fallen hen and the Germans would have aKen Iran and gone on to India nd linked with the Japs. "Hitler would then have made lis attack on Russia early in May nd not late in June. He started oo late, the winter came and Moscow was saved. So far can mall spiritual causes generate vhat great results we have seen That Germany ft-It those results s also plain." Mr. Michalopoulos described the ystematic starvation and lootin" f Greece and said that 880 thou- and Greeks have died as a result f the policy. "That is the rule all ver Europe." "This is a war to the death."

These people believe in might as ;\ doctrine. For them might has taken the plac of God. This is a poisonous thin that has to lie rooted out. "There is no doubt that the policy of Germany has undergone a change in regard-to the objec to be obtained. The Germans were convinced that the democracies were so unprepared that they would sweep to victory, reducing the populations to actual slavery By now the leaders must be convinced that they cannot win the war. You would think they migh attempt to conciliate the people in" the countries they have overrun. On the contrary, they are even more ruthless. The plan is devilish, but perfectly logical from the German point of view. "They have decided to destroy everything, physically and m»ral- y to devitalize the nations. They enow they will not be ruined because their conquerors will be civilized. They are determined at he llth hour to create as much disorder as possible. "When the war is over, Germany will be occupied, will be mnished--disarmed, but racially, he people will not be destroyed, 0 that after about 10 years when he democracies have relaxed, hey will be able to spring for- vard. Not having suffered, they oroe out more vigorous to spread heir branches and their suckers )ver the weakened races around hem. "This is where the responsibil- ties of leadership come in. The onquered nations will present a rathological rather than a politi- al problem. They won't be able o participate to any degree of anity in world affairs. The great emocracies should realize this ifficulty. "It is their duty to the smaller ountries who have given everything that democracy is at last ·nade safe for everyone. The first ling necessary'is unity. America nd Great Britain should have no ifficulty in composing their div- erences. They are only super- icial.

We must unite and we must collaborate and that is the solution for Germany, too." Mr. Michalopoulos was introduced by Mrs. B.
