2 Holiday, March 20, 1941 MASOX CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Fritz von Maimslein's chance ot saving any substantial part or his German forces was reported glimmering as the red army swept across Bessarabia in a race to- waid the Prut. Ha vine expended the bulk of Us south Ukraine armored forces in treat battles, Mannsleiu now faced the seemingly hopeless task of fuidine entire fresh armies to throw in the r*ith of the onrush- inr Soviets. Moscow said that as the situation stood Monday. Mannslcin had lost the Ukraine and was losing Bessarabia, with the red army shouldering its way up to the base of the Carpathians. His disastrous offense threatened the Germans with the collapse of all their lines inside Russia proper, soviet dispatches said, and raised grave doubts of the nazi ability to re-establish control of the situation anywhere cast of Central Poland. Marshal Ivan Konev's advance cavalry was reported 40 miles from the Rumanian frontier along the Prut on a widening front between Mogilev Podolski and So- roki. More significant, spearheads were moving toward the vital rail junction of Balti, the capture of which would virtually make impossible the movement of German troops in northern Bessa- rabia. The Russians held one of three Dniester rail crossings and had a grip on the outskirts of Mogilev Podolski. a second, leaving only the south Bessarabian junction of Tighina f r e e for German troop movements. The Dniester crossing obviously unhinged all German positions to the cast. Moscow reports said. The complete collapse of German defenses in the Nikolacv and Odessa areas was regarded as assured. . Soviet dispatches said s o m e German troops were arriving in Bulgaria from the Crimea, apparently signalizing the start of the evacuation of the Black sea peninsula which was isolated save by sea.

We shall leave untouched the national sovereignty of the state and all it legitimately implies -- territory, flag, language, culture, political and administrative inititutions-- in fact all that the term 'self determination' connotes. "But over aud above all will be an international regime of law and order which will maintain w-ace and guarantee lo each state the peaceful pursuit of each its own life free from fear of aggression . by its neighbors, in fact a regime under which the aggressor will be an outlaw to be dealt with by the international authority as such." ''HERE we have in rather concise · language the case for a revived league. It will be designed to pre- erve national sovereignty, on the one hand, and to apply the force of international law on aggressor nations, on the other. But the question arises immediately: "That ivas the intent of the original league. Why didn't it work?" And that's a question which must be answered. IT'S A satisfying augury that 1 those most closely identified with the old league are freest to admit its shortcomings. Carl 3. Hambro, last presiding officer of the, league, admitted some of these to me not so many months ago. One was the faulty allocation of voting strength to the constituent nations; another was the league's failure to attract United States into membership; still.another was the failure to provide adequate means for effectively dealing with aggressor nations. F° R MONTHS the executive committee of the league of nations union has been addressing itself to a study of those shortcomings which doomed the old league to failure. Recently it made public a proposed draft for the future international authority, designed to eliminate those deficiencies in the original covenant. In its overall outline, however, it bears some striking resemblance. Of special interest are the sections having to do with the enforcement of peace. Section 9 calls for the creation of a defense committee of the international authority ( a n o t h e r term of league) cloaked with power to "use their whole strength to prevent or stop any act ot aggression." Specific safeguards are provided against hasty or arbitrary action, however, in the next article which enjoins the defense committee from proceeding except "after approval by the majority of the council or assembly." In another section provisions are offered for the appointment by the defense committee of a general staff to advise on technical matters, authority to put forward proposals "for the general limitation and supervision of armaments" and a study to determine '-whether it is desirable to have an international air force." A ETICLE 13 pledges the league rt not to use force in the settlement of international disputes except as a last resort. It also pledges member nations not to ive aid or comfort to any power guilty of any actual or threatened aggression and grants permission to any member to bring io the attention of the central organization any condition of international affairs which threatens peace or the good understanding between nations. Article 14 of the suggested league draft outlines the machinery of appeal to the permanent court of international justice or to a tribunal of arbitration agreed on between the parties. In no case," says this section, "shall cither parly to the dispute take or encourage hostile action on behalf of its claim unless authorized to do so by- a two-thirds majority of the assembly." Hope for eventual admittance to the league of our axis enemy nations is contained in this provision from Art. 1: "Any. state may become a member of the. authority which has satisfied Iwo-thirtls of the assembly that (a) It has f u l l control of its international relations and. (b) It accepts and will carry out the declaration and other provisions herein contained." Two years notice would be required for withdrawal. tion. success will be assured, it is reasoned by these league proponents. 0 F - C '"' 111 COURSE, the great question tions is: "What will America do? Our role in the peace after the last war wasn't forgotten. After assuming a leadership in the organization of the league, our spokesman was repudiated, his works wiped out, by the legislative branch of government. What assurance can other nations have today that this performance will not be repeated? To say the least, that's a logical question. The one most encouraging sign in answering that question is that it is uot being looked upon as a partisan matter, as it was 35 years ago. In congressional resolution, passed by overwhelming vote, and in party declaration, an intent lo place America's influence back of a program to establish aud maintain a just and lasting peace has been stated in unequivocal terms. Interestingly enough some who have been identified as ''isolationist" have been outspokenly for. the revived league of nations approach. In this connection, I'm thinking particularly of Senator Robert A. Taft. Certainly it is to be hoped that our president, whoever he may be, will keep it ever before him that whatever commitments are made must be approved by the senate--and by two-thirds vote. There's a need for pronounced partnership relations as between the executive and the legislative branches in matters pertaining to foreign policy. THE WHOLE subject is one * which should be approached in a realistic way. For one thing, it should be recognized that there's one and only one common bond in the world today. That's the wish to avoid another war. All nations--even Germany and Japan--know that war is bad business. That's the fact that must be kept ever in miud. It is upon that foundational fact that a lasting peace can be built. If we try to broaden that base very much, we're going to be in bad trouble. Some day we may be able to Christianize the world. Some day we may be able to make the world safe for democracy. Some day we may be able to guarantee freedom for every individual. Some day we may be able to vouchsafe, economic security, for every human being. But, in my opinion, it is to prove fatal if we make goals a structural part of going these the world peace organization. It's enough to assume that a durable peace is attainable because the world wants a durable peace and has some helpful guideposts from experience. With war banished from the earth, man's social and economic welfare automatically will be greatly elevated. Ail KEY AREAS IN ADMIRALTIES WON BY ALLIES Quantities of Material Are Captured With Victory at Lorengau Allied Headquarters, Southwest Pacific. (.T) -- American soldiers swept the Japanese out of Loren- gau, the enemy's Admiralty islands headquarters, Saturday to climax a speedy offensive tor control of the northern gateway to the Bismarck sea. Capture of Loreiigau and quan- titles of Japanese arms and equipment in the key Manus island stronjrhold'"completes tlie occupation ot all viUl areas in the Admiralties." Gen.

Thompson, who was 74 years old. died in his suite at the Blackstone hotel near the center of the loop, the noisy, boisterous heart of the city where the name "Big Bill" was formerly a household word. Thompson, a native of Boston, first was elected mayor in 1915 and served 2 terms, until 1923, when he was succeeded by William E. Dever. However, the sensational rise of powerful and warring .gangs during the Dever administration opened the way for "Big Bill" to run again. He was re-elected in 1927 on an "America First" program. H was then, while taking a stand against foreign alliances in any form, that Thompson stirred up an international furor by ordering the destruction of all pro-British books in Chicago's schools and libraries. He damned the late King George V in. the colorful Thompson language and threatened to "punch the king in the snoot" if he ever came to Chicago. He never de- serted'his hard and fast stand on republican politics and never lost bin "hate Britain" attitude. Thompson was one of the most colorful politicians of his generar lion. He was a big man who did things in a big way. In the 1920's. he organized a Boosters' club to spend 51,000.000 advertising Chicago. Thompson was bom May 14, 1369, and came to Chicago with his parents when he was still a baby. He left school when he was 14 years old and went to Montana to punch cows. He also worked oil ranches in Colorado and Wyoming atid once managed a Nebraska cattle ranch for 3 years. In 1392, he returned .to Chicago and started his political career as an alderman 8 years later.
