Now...a "Better Kind of Driving facing the world is how, to make Germany, now a "poorhonsi 1 ," again into Hie "powerhouse" for European reconstruction "without, letting the powerhouse again become an arsenal." Germany also, lie said. Is the "chief testing ground lor the great experiment in which we lire now committed — the experiment, of building nil enduring peace upon the foundation o[ great power co- oiierallon." "Every aspect, of the problem of building an enduring peace is reproduced in that, troubled nnd troublesome part of Europe which lies between the Vistula and the Rhine," Warburg said. "Betw;eii these two rivers East and West must meet, join hand's, and go lo work in friendship and peace—If there Is to be peace in this world. Between the Vistula and the Rhine the peace of the world canAot be wholly made—but, il can be lost- there beyond redemption." Germany was described by Henry C. Wolfe, author of ''the Ger- mnn Octopus." as a "potential menace that can hardly bo rxng- geratcd." "We had better face up to the grim truth tha't, the German problem is the key to the problem of Europe." he said. "If we do not attack the German problem intelligently and vigorously, we may yet lose.the war.-' . "Wolfe said' that the victors had fulled in their handling of the clcfented Reich "on almost, every count." "For one thing we have not carried out the Pplsdam Agreement." he snld. "We have four zones, each of which is administered differently. . . The inevitable consequences of this divided, conflictim; nlliorl nilo of Germany are starvation, fantastic inflation and despair." Without recovery in Germany he said, Europe is unable to revive policy. Hearth Addicts Wasting Wood, They're Told . WASHINGTON' <UP>—The'u. s.
