Somehow it doesn't seem very long ago thiil he was using these very sanvj words. Yet it's going on six years sinca that day in June of 1041 when Mr. Alarcanldiiio discovered, with the Na'ii invasion of Kussia, tliat this was not an imperialistic war at all, but a battle for the survival uf democracy which America, belatedly, should prepare for. Previously, of course, Mr. Mar- ciinUmiu had voted against every piec-i of legislation whose aim was to strengthen us agi'.iiisl possible attack. Now we find him' right back where ho slarted. . / We can't say that the designation of World War It as '.imperialist" is a switch in Die party line, for Mr. ftlar- umlonio isn't a Communist, lie denies any such insulting charge with vk'or.
