Next: A World Trade Policy ,. . The .development of u bipartisan foreign policy is cortninly one ol' .America's major postwar acliicvo- •"hie'nts. Tested under firu, it has withstood some sharp attacks and omevgou ;• strong and with a promise of cnclur- ; ing. ' Yet its scope is more limited than the name suggests. Our unanimity is confined to' li'e political side of foreign relations. \\the field of international trade K\-.I\ finance there are still .some sharp divisions. They are not so much between Democrats and Republicans as between groups within each parly. -And so long as they exist it cannot -.truly b(> said that we have bipartisan , 'agreement on foreign policy. • The question behind these differences is: Can the United States combine political internationalism with economic isolationism? That question p. has been sharpened by the election of ,n Republican majority in Congress, oven though the answers arc not divided on a strictly party basis. And the Republicans, realizing this, are facing the issue. * .....!... Discussion of tariffs and riciprocal trade agreements i.s starling up ,-imonij Republican congressmen. A lot. of do- bate, much of it hot, is inevitable before they reach an agreement. Some senators would like to go back to-Jho 'j Smoot-Hawley days of high tariff ' days i-ii'ht away. Some want to give the trade-agreement -job back to Congress. Others want to avoid this step with its '^inevitable log-rolling." SI:!! others would ban tariff reductions for a matter of years. Harold E. Stasscn, who never fears to -stick his neck out, had some interesting things to say on the subject in his Lincoln Day speech. Jle supported his argument for "worldwide economic participation" by calling attention to these factors: American productivity is iticreasir.i<- tremendously; we have become flic great creditor nation of the world; we are dependent on the rest of the world for much of our raw material; world peace is impossible without a steady improvement in the living standards of other peoples everywhere. Our choice, Mr. Stasscn says, "is either to jfo forward now with the reciprocal agreements, or lo slide backward in economic isolation." Obviously, he would like to see his party take tbe forward step. Yet he counsels gradual adjustments and improved methods of negotiating agreements, with clue care for American industry and agriculture, •im! .safeguard.* agamst dumping goods, exceeding quota limitations, and so on. Whether or not one agrees wiih Mr. Stassen, there are certain fact i of our modern economic life that are clear. Many countries have borrowed money from this government. They need American products. America needs lo keep production high permanently. When the current unnatural demand at home has abated, our industry will no;nl to sell to other countrin;;. Our people would like to sec the government's loans repaid. JJut to buy goods and pay delitr. these other countries need to sell. It they cannot sell here they will sol, somewhere else. Their raw material that wi: need will go where the:-i3 countries received Ihe best treatment. It is to our national self-interest, to sell goo-Is and to get back goods and dollars, flow and 'by how much trade barriers must be broken down to achieve this is the problem before the Republican Congress. It's not an one, and (here will be some rough go'- ing before it is solved. Bond of Brotherhood * Both desigji and circumstance seem to be forcing Canada away from Kng- Jiind and bringing her closer to chj United States. The Canadians attained independent citizenship. Then Canada and the United States decided to continue in peacetime their war-born joint defense agreement. But, the crowning bond of brotherhood was attained just the other day. The choir and organist of an Ottawa church were engaged to perform in s>. government-made film. Shortly afterward the government -received a bi;i for !?v)0. It was for the services of a "sljimt-by" union -organist and it was sent by James C. Petnllo. I*. S. The government paid.

"Parker plays wonderfully well!" phc flared and the moment the words were out she wondered why she should be defending Parker to Mike. "He'll never amount lo anything Cnssie, and you know it. You're showing good sense—n little Intc— but not too laic—by divorcln" him!" & The shock ol his words silenced her. So Leni had known the truth —Parker had told her he'd discussed a divorce. She realized <iuitc suddenly that divorcing Parker had not seemed real to her until now, hearing Mike speak so casually and definitely about it "Parker certainly made a fizile of the machine works, didn't he? I.eni said he'd had two or three jobs since, loo, that he couldn't hold down. You must have had a pretty niggcct lime aflcr Ihe money was gnne." Again that queer feeling of wanting lo defend Parker possessed her. And there was something fantastic too about her being here with Mike—as though it were all just n dream. She had dreamed ?o many times of being with Mike again. She should be very happy —wildly so—instead of feeling so numb and bewildered. "There's a nice place to cat out here on the State road.

I! may be too early jet to make a fair appraisal on hiv.v congressional ]>•- organi/atlon is working out. But in the first six weeks of the session, all has not been hunky-dory.- Congressman Mike Monroncy'ol Oklahoma, co-sponsor with ex-Sen. Bob LaFollette on the Reorpanba- llon hill, says there has been less open opposition than anticipated. Undercover, it's .something else. There i.s no qnarre] with the congressional lenders. They have supported streamlining to perfection. The Republican leadership-in the House has given the lower chamber a strong Rules Comnjll.- tee under Leo Allen of Illinois. I It Is no longer Ihe legislative bottleneck it formerly v,-,is. The all- powerful Rules Committee was one of the sacred things the LaFollctto- Monroney committee was forbidden, to reform. ; But since the Republicans themselves have voluntarily taken the lead in changing-« the iioliey for this traditionally dictatorial inoiip. there is that much unexpected liet gain on top of other reforms. On the other hand, from SO to 75 per cent of the old-timers in Congress there has been an undercover nibbling-away at the foundn- lloils of congressional mndmiiviin-*.
