Hut our former ally has made it easier for its Germans to reform by pursuing a policy so like Hitler's that both the Kremlin anil the former Nazis must have trouble in telling the two apart.

MONDAY, MARCH 8, 1941 Hold Your Hats, Folks, He's Off Again! King of Trans-Jordan Offers Palestine Solution The rumor that King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan would like to take over the Arab section of Palestine offers a possible solution to the Holy Land crisis that is sensible, although melodramatic. According lo the New York Herald Tribune, Abdullah wants lo arrange a bloodless -coup de'ctat with the UN's foreknowledge and blessing. He would absorb the Arab /.ones into Trans- Jordan, stop the fighting in Palestine, and let the J<Hvs proceed with the set-i' ting up of their independent stale. Abdullah's price is said lo be ;i membership in the UN, which Kussia has blocked tip to now, and also a guarantee against a double cross in the Palestine co\i|>. If all this is true, it is promising news. But the method doesn't seem to be as admirable as tlie result. There must be a more orderly and dignified method than a stage-managed intrigue with everybody in on the secret. A logical beginning might be for R qualified representative of the Palestine Arabs to propose the annexation by Trans-Jordan to the UN ami ask that organization to conduct a plebicite on the matter 'among his people when the UN takes over the mandate in May. As a condition of this vote bo should certainly pledge au cud o£ An\U hostilities in the meantime. .- • This might be the public beginning. But before that Ihere obviously would have to be an agreement among- the Moslem leaders on the matter. Here the scheme might run into trouble, although the leaders have been pretty well united in their fight against partition. It is not likely that annexation would meet with much favor from that old friend of the Nazis, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. The Grand Mufti is ambitions, and . he is bitterly anti-Jewish. He probably has a considerable following of extremists. Bringing them into line co«W well be the biggest obstacle in Abdullah's reported scheme. One might guess, however, that most objections to annexation by the Palestine Arabs would be based on politics rather than principle. From their behavior since the partition vote, it would seem that the chance to set up their own government is of secondary importance. The fact that the UN partition vote gave independence to Arabs as well as Jews has scarcely been mentioned. There does not seem to be any good reason why the Jews or the pro-partition governments in the UN should object to this rumored arrangement. It would still give the Jews their independence. It would save lives, and the UN's face. It is a minor matter that .the partition plan would not work out exactly as the UN planned it. The important thing is that the Palestine crisis end in peace, justice, and true self-dclenniiut- VIEWS OF OTHERS Criminal Code Reform The Missouri Supreme Court's code revision committee l.s doing an outstanding service. The new rules it proposes for criminal practice and procedure embody one worthy proposal after another which have been done to death In secret hy the ICRiil clique In the Legislature over a span ol 20 years. Done, to dcatli. it might be added, not once but session after session. The revision committee proposes that the Supreme Court, under Its constitutional rule malt- Ing power. (;ive Judges discretion in determining whether rrlmlnnl defendants, indicted [or the same crime, should go lo trial Icgcther or have separate trials. Disctetionary severance Is HS It should he. It Is the procedure In virtually every other stale. Yel Missouri has watched one criminal case after another go (o pieces because o! our archnlc rule of mandatory severance. Under this rule, six co-defendants obtain six separate trials with the result that many busy witnesses for tlie state become dlssustcd at the delays and waste ot time-, others- may leave the stale In tile middle of such proceedings. Sometimes Iccy witnesses die In these long-diagged-out repetitious trials. And the underworld has used the Intervals lo dispose of vital witnesses. Adoption of the rule of discretionary, severance by Ihc Slate Supreme Court would put Missouri belatedly into step wilh federal criminal practice nml the criminal procedure of nearly all the states. Many other recommendations of this committee nre Just and meritorious. H is proposed, for example, to put a limit on the number or continuances which n leifi.ihtor-lawycr may obtain for a criminal client because of a session ol me Legislature. This racket lias been used thousands «l times to ixistpone trials when delay was merely a stall. Certain existing criminal code provisions were j expressly designed by criminal lawyer-legislators to put Ihc state at serious disadvantage. The icvision committee proposes to correct these. It wants She state lo be allowed to take depositions, now forbidden without reason ot any sort, it wants the state to get notice of an alibi defense In time to check the trtr.h of tlie story. H wants approval for Hie use of alternate jurors. It wants stringent regulations for ball bond procedures to eliminate the abuses rampant among professional bondsmen, particularly In HI. Louis. If all goes according to the schedule of Rlchniil K. I'helps of Kansas City, chairman of the committee, finally dralted rules will be submitted to Hie State Supreme Court by July 1. Six months r.fler approval by the Supreme'court they will be the law of Missouri. Thus will the legislators who have knilrd criminal code reform behind closed doors at JrHcrson Oily be bypassed and dctcatcd. —ST. LOUIS POPT-OISPATCH.
