Meditation There Is a sore evil that I will see under the sun—wealth kept by its owner to his own hurt. —EcclesUstcs 5:12. • • * » Riches are a blessing only to him who makes them a blessing to others. Incomplete Sympathy The Progressive Citizens of Anferica convention in Chicago proposed that "American immigration harriers he removed so that the victims oC Na/i and v Fascist aggression who desire to come to this country may do so." That sounds fine, and is fine, as far as it goes. But the thief displaced-persons problem is concerned with the victims of Communist aggression, citizens of Soviet-dominated countries who fear to return home lest they suffer reprisals for their non-Communist beliefs. What would the PCA do with them—leave them in European concentration camps or turn them over to the secret police of the new "people's republics"? cans seem to prefer the giimble in Europe. The stakes are lower and the chances of winning seem better. But right now the American kibitzers are arguing whether we should Himply cover our opponent's bet or raise it. Well, our cards look good, and right now we have more blue chips than our opponent. If he's bluffing, a good strong raise might make him decide to turn his cards face down and bow out. If he isn't, we look to have the strength to go raising as long as he does. VIEWS OF OTHERS It Ought to Happen Gambling for Peace American aitl to Europe is ;t Kiimble whether it is given through a M;u'sh;ill plan, a Herler Plan, or somebody else's plan. But that does not menu that the cliaTice must be taken blindly, with no notion of whether we shall win or lose until the results are in. Three factors ought to be considered by the gambler who isn't willing to depend on sheer luck. There arc the mathematical odds against your doing what you set out to do, as in dice. There are past performances and present condition, as in horse racing. There are the strength and intentions and idiosyncracies of your opponent, which considered with the mathematical odds, is what makes some people better poker players than others. In the case of Eurpean aid the first consideration can be ruled out. There is no ^mathematical formula for predicting success or failure. The second factor is highly important. The recent condition of the 16 nations is obviously badfi but the past performance of most of them is excellent. History gives us every reason to believe that, if they are aided and strengthened, there will be more liber?, ty, prosperity, security and happiness for all the world than if they are lert in their present plight. As for the third consideration, we are playing an opponent who is strong, clever an dtricky. He is out to win. \Vu have played him long enough to know that he does a lot of bluffing. But we are still quite sure when he is betting from bluff and when from strength. There is another gamble, of course, that we might take. We could pull out of the European game, let our opponent rake in his winnings, and start a game of our own. That would mean putting our country almost on a wartime footing, lesuming selective service to build up our armed forces, and strengthening our national defense against possible attack. The chances are it would take more money even lo buy chips for this game than' it would to win the pot in Europe. There is a third possibility We could refuse to gamble. We could refuse to sit in on either game. And we could still wind up losing not only our money, but our freedom. nnJ'f^r v-T- , he t!u ' ce c ho««. Only foolish friends and bitter enemies , could advise us to take the third chance I by telhng us that our opponent is going iw^v 11 ',' S ° hips alld « et out of «ie : game. W e have known that opponent : long enough to know that h e won't take .!>!• winnings «nd get out until the cards ; Winst him «re so strong that he runs . the risk of losing everything by staving in. Of the other choices, most Ameri- A conference of the 16 nations hoping to benefit, from the Marshall Plan could have made—and still could make—a valuable contribution to the success of the program in congress. Britain and France, however, have given up plans (or such a meeting because ol mate Department disapproval. We trust the attitude of the Stale Department has been misconstrued. IE it has not been, we believe that proper consultation between the United Stales cjovernmenl and the IG-natlon Committee for European Economic Cooperation can still Iron out any misunderstandings which have led to the present awkward situation. To be sure, if the Stale Department was not going lo maintain a. tiHiids-ofl altitude, caiciul consultation should have occurred betorc the announcement that Britain and France were preparing for a meeting of CEEC. Doubts aboul the suitability or a CEEC meet- Ing have been inspired by riuuovs thai untactlul statements would be made at the conlercnce. Also by the State Department's apprehension that Congress might Interpret tlic meeting as "pressure." There is reason to believe these iears were cxnggeiated. So for a moment—and we hope it Is only a moment,—a good idea hangs suspended grotesquely In mid-air because of bad stage management. The sell-help and nominEicriuLisl purposes of Marshall planning—and the possibilities it holds for increased economic Integration of Europe—deserve a continuous spotlight. Naturally the State Department would not want to be associated with any intcrnaliour.! ultcmpt to put pressure on Congress, for that would backfire. Bill a_16-natlon conierenee snowing Europe's progress wilh its part of the planning, and indicating iU ability to make American aid serve the security and freedom of all weslcrn nations including the United States need not backfire. The British and French Governments have been very quick to withdraw their plans tor the IB-nation conference because of the State Department's reaction. But there is no reason wtiy they should act like marionettes. This Is not the last decision they will have to take without American permission. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.
