Meditation I un that bread of life.—John 6:18. • • * Bread of the world, in mercy broken, Wlrie of the soul, In mercy shed, By whom the words of life were siioken. And In whose death our sins are dead; Look on the heart by sorrow broken, Look on the tears by sinners shed; And by Thy feast, to us the token That by Thy grace our souls are fed. —Reginald Hcber. More Production— More Pay We should like to congratulate AFL President William Green for liis sensible proposal of more money for more work. Industry needs more production, among other things, to get prices down. Mr. Green's suggestion o£ five extra hours in the work week, at overtime, would be a step toward ochieving both. A man making $1.50 an hour for a 40-hour week would gel $10 more with a straight 25-cents-an-hour rise. The same man, working an extra hour a. day at time-and-a-half, would get $11.25 more. And the country would have millions of man-hours' extra production. W« hope Mr. Green's plan gets the attention from both labor and industry that it deserves. A Hard Day for Both Extremes The State Department certainly '] gave the apologists for Russia and the ''ultra-isolationists a hard day by releasing tha secret Naxi-Soviet agreements and correspondence. Maybe nobody else was much surprised, but the documented evidence, and its implica- ' tions, punctured the arguments of extreme left and right appetisers. It gave the final blow to the old fable that the Kremlin signed a non-aggression pact with Hitler just to stall him while Russia prepared for the coming Nazi attack. Russia scarcely would have prepared for a summer invasion by sending Germany 632,000 tons of grain and 232,000 tons of petroleum in the first four months of 1041. The Kremlin must have been trying to live up to its end of the deal to divide Europe and Asia to merit these words, written by a Nazi Foreign official in May, 1941: "The quantities of raw materials now contracted for are being delivered punctually by the Rus- »ians, despite the heavy burden this • imposes on them, which especially with regard to grain, is a notable performance." Ambassador Joseph H. Uavies and many others believed the stalling fable in good faith. But when later events made it unbelievable, there were still some who persisted in clinging t o it. Now the fiction is demolished. The published documents were equally tough on the assumption that all Russia wants is to be left alone, and that it i s American aggression that has goaded her to retaliation. That assumption is the basis of thc foreign policy that Henry Wallace would sell to the country through his tbird party. U should be clear now, if it was not before, that Premier Stalin and his colleagues saw, in mo, that the coming war might provide the right setting - for a big step toward world domination. The veteran revolutionists of 1917 had used the chaos of World War J to overthrow the czar and, indifferent to the fate of the czar's a lUc.,, to ma j< e peace with Germany. Marx's world revolution didn't c?me ° ff in t' 1 , 6 , rears that followed. BUI if the woruls workers wouldn't arise and embrace communism, perhaps they could have communism thrust upon them. Hitler's war seemed to offer thc chance. Who can doubt that the Russian , plan was to make a deal for a divided Europ* and then, with the Nazis victorious but exhausted, fight Hitler for his share? But Hitler doiiblecrossod Stalin, and Russia had lo come in o;i the Allies' side. The chaos that followed Hitler's war is greater than tlie chaos Unit preceded it. Russian policy in the past two years makes it uvidcnL that the Kremlin still seeks the prize that Hitler first held out, and then withdrew. The secret documents now revoaled only make it clearer that the Russian government is interested only in itself. It will bide its time, and agree or disagree only as agreement or disagreement seems to serve its purpose. How, then, can thc appcascrs toll us that Russia wants only to 1 JC left alone? How can the isolationists say that we can pull otil of Kurupe and let Europe revive herself with one hiiwl and fight off Russia with thc other? The positions of both have always been difficult to justify. Now, thanks lo the State Department, they are almost impossible. VIEWS OF OTHERS BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS There's Gold in Them Thar Hills Toward a United Europe The .strongest support for Foreign Secretary Serin's appeal for a solidly untied bloc oi Western European notions comes from farmer Prime Minister Churchill, Mr. Churchill believes that such solidarity is Die only \vny to mi curly and reasonable accord with thc Soviet Union. Without It, lie fears that thc International situation may regenerate Into an atomic war. The danger Is real, even though it may not be as Imminent as Mr. Churchill thinks. As John Poster Duller pointed out the other day, the Russians, while determined 10 perpetuate contusion in thc West, do not seem to b« eager to start actual military warlare. According lo their philosophy, shooting ts unnecessary; they believe they can win by penetration and propaganda. For this reason, Die Kremlin might not lie as Inclined to come to terms as Mr. Churchill sug- gesU. Nevertheless, It Is dllllcult to imagine any other feat ol statesmanship that could do more to cut lh c ground from under their current hopes than Ihe formation of a solid Western European front. As such, It has been welcomed by Ihe State Detriment. Such an arangcment, of course would have to be based on economic stability as well as political agreement. Hence the continuing importance ol the Marshall plan. In Washington, Count Courenhove-Kalerel Is ursing that the formation of a United Slates ol Europe be made one of (he conditions of American aid to thc Continental countries. Much as one favors a U.S.E., It, does seem thai the rcarti- zation of this ideal should be thus imposed. It needs n broader foundation of unforced acquiescence. Thus the Italians, desperately in need of help, are all for Ihhe Bcvln proposal. The Scandinavian countries, less hard pressed, are skeptical of what they see as a permanent division of Europe between East and West. And the Swiss want no pan of the suggestion. Furthermore, there are In this lime of disordered currencies and crippled- productive facilities, considerable difficulties in the way of even so simple a unifying device as a ciisloms union, No wonder Prime Minister Attlec urges n gradual approach. The- difficulties, of course, must be overcome, but. the process should not be 'allowed lo claim' the great goal. A united—and eventually federated—Europe surely would be strong Europe. The Bevin proposal Is one more stride forward. -.St. fjottis Post-Dispatch JMONDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1943 Forgotten Men of World WarJl Continue to Labor for Victors THE DOCTOR SAYS By Kdwln P.
