Borah sAid that the present expressions of opinion in the United Itates--including a vigorous drive in he Senate to learn if there was any grcement with Butain--apparently lad convinced British Prime Minii- er Neville Chamberlain that there ould be no understanding with this ountry. "It seems to me that Great Britain ias finally 1 made up her mind that lie cannot depend upon the United States for military or diplomatic as- ibtancc and that, as a result, she has undertaken to make friends where he can," he said. "I am convinced that for a time he British public was developing he idea ot cooperating closely with he United States, and especially of omc working agreement with us as regards the Pacific.

There is, of course, much to be said for Eden's viewpoint, but Chamberlain has wisely decided that it is better to go to Italy and arrange a settlement before it is too late, than to wait indefinitely for Italy to come to Britain. 'The purpose behind this British move, undoubtedly, is to drive a wedge between Germany and Italy. 'The only real dispute between Germany and Great Britain is over the former German colonies which Germany is insisting she must have back. That is a primary element in Hitler's program and I am convinced that sooner or later she will get them back because they were originally hers. They were taken away from her by sheer force. 'Nam ally Britain will try to hold on to the colonies as long as she can. Tliat is why she is now seeking an agreement with Italy because if she succeeds it will drive Italy and Germany apart and Germany will be weakened or at least delayed in her efforts to regain the colonies."

"Look at the map of the world before and after the Versailles Treaty," he said. "When that treaty was signed Great Britain and France took possession ot the world." "They left the small powers with nothing. How could they hope to maintain that position without huge armies and navies? That was the cause for all o£ the frantic armaments building; the cause for the unsettled situation that has prevailed ever since. ^ "For thit reason Germany and Italy and Japan were drawn closer and closer together--the have-nots against the haves. It might be argued that Japan was an exception but it applies equally to Japan because she was bound to join in with the dissatisfied nations demanding a redistribution of colonial wealth.
