Meditation For It Is always the one who aski who re- eelves, and the one who searches who finds, and the one who knocks to whom'the door opens. —Luke 11:10. n* Thra* Vfltf Men al old »ujbt and found the Christ Child but many people are forgetting ta look for Christ in this Christmas season. Where Are the Traitors— and Why? • An American woman named Jane Anderson, who broadcast for the Nazis during the war as "Lady Ha Ha," has been released from an American prison in Austria. She 'was arreat- •d last April. On Sept, 30, the Justice Department released her from an indictment for treason. Miss Anderson's happy fate sent us checking back on sorne of the other Americans who sat out the war in Axis capitals, broadcasting appeals to the American forces to surrender. The rwult was not heartening. Of the 14.that we remembered only one, Douglas Chandler, has been sentenced to life imprisonment. Ezra Pound, th« poet who peddled Mussolini'r propaganda, has been committed to an in»an» asylum. Robert .H. Best, former newspaperman, has been arrested, but «tiU not tried! Fred Kaltenbach wa» ia Russian hands the last he WM heard of. Here is what happened to some of the Americans who stooged for Hitler on the Nazi radio. Constance Drexel, Edward L.':Delahey, Herbert Eurgman, Max Koischwitz and Donald Day have all been released by the Justice Department. . The reason given in some c««e» was "lack of evident"; in others, an inability to find witnesses; in Day's case the Justice Department •imply was "no longer interested." Mii s Drexel was last reported to be covering the United Nations as a freelance, and writing a book on "disarmament." Day also has improved some of his shining.hours of freedom by doing a book which it published in Swedish. The Tokyo branch of this traitorous crew, though less numerous, has fared just aa well. The notorious Tokyo Rose and Robert Chisholm have been released by the Justice Department. Mark Streeter, arrested in 1945, has yet to be tried. Carl Flick has disappeared. It is interesting to note the contrast between this, government's loving and forgiving attitude toward those who worked for Its defeat, and the British government's method. The British have tried six and hanged two—William ("Lord Haw Haw") Joyce and John Amery, son of a former Secretary of State for India. It has sentenced another to hang It has given a fourth a . 10-year prison sentence, and the other two five years m jatl. Our Justice Department's excuses for its leniency seem woefully weak. What better, evidence or witness is needed than the damning broadcasts of . those who have been arrested and released? Or didn't anyone—the OSS, the FBI, or our civilian broadcasters- even bother to record this evidence? Why have these people gone scot- .free? We still keep our conscientious objectors, in jail. But their wartime role was passive. Through cowardice or religious scruples or other personal reasons, they refused to fight. But the enemy's American broadcasters were not v cowards. They joined the Axis cause -and,tried to bring about the downfall of, their country, , Is it laziness, indifference or in- eompetem* that has won them, their freedom? Or has our government so . -»oon forgotten that we ever had other v,; enemies beside* Russia? Has it lost BLYTHEVILhE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS sight of the fact that there Is other • disloyalty than membership in the Communist Party? 'We do not think it is Woodthirsty to »uggest that some of these follow. ers of the defeated enemy—who apparently have been dismissed as harmless crackpots—at least be brought to , justice. To dismiss them as being of no present interest musl give comfort to those who still subscribe to the defeated enemy's doctrines, Certainly it pay* poor tribute to the memory of those who gave their lives to oppose those doctrines and to preserve America whose freedom the Drexels and Days and the rest are now enjoying. VIEWS OF OTHERS Whistle"Stop for Freedom Train The truth hurls, and some of the people of Memphis will undoubtedly blame outsiders for giving the town a bad name. Nevertheless, It was not outsiders, but Memphis' Mayor Plensanls, who Insisted that racial segregation would have to be observed and who thereby prevented the Freedom Train from stopping there. Most Americans don't like racial oppression, as Mayor Plcasants or any other Memplilan could find out by going around the country and asking. It would be a denial of the very »pirlt which the Freedom Train symbolize* to practice race discrimination In the admittance of spectators. It would be a piece of cynical Irony. Until Mem- phi* it willing to practice '-Americanism 'toward the races, It will have to accept the position of whistle «top on the way to democracy. —ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Back Up Fulbright Senator Pulbriglit of Arkansas has niade It known that he Intends to wage battle for the removal ot taxes that discriminate against oleomargarine. Elsewhere in The Commercial Appeal today li an article carrying in detail Senator Fulbrl«ht'» reasoning and also interesting' and pertinent fact* about Uie origin and productivity at the levies. . It hu been years since the taxes on oleo owned even the semblance of excuse, in the cur* rent er» of toarlng'' prices, the Imposition ot these taxes means entirely unjustltted and unnecessary hardship on people in the low Income groups. Senator Fulbrlght's move is well time* u well as in the public interest. It ihoultj be understood, however, Hint Senator Fulbright will need the active baeklng ot those who agree with him In principle. The ' present '»tiite o* affairs means economic handicaps for the South'* producers that ought to be removed, and can be if the people of this Kcllon rally behind their leadership. —COMMERCIAL APPEAL.
