SLIDELL, Some world crises come with Ihe fanfare of war with all its patriotic speeches, exciting thrills, economic changes, proud victories and icrrl- fymif losses, other crises of cciual and sometimes even greater imporl- ance as judged by future historians seem to creep upon ( , s quietly mid unnoted by the majority of the population. .The danger in the last instance lies In the unpreparcdnoi.s of uninformed minds to urasti lh« sravily of n situation and even to resist the decisions of o n i statesmen who, knowing all the facts, realize that certain bold steps must he laken 50 quickly that the matter of public preparedness becomes of secondary importance. On occasions of this kind, the :>o- ealled dictator controlled nations- have the advantage over our democratic processes. Our leaders may make a wise decision which calls for immediate notion and then, while they need every ounce of their energies to cope w i t h the situation at hand, be forced to "sell" the legislative bodies of the nation and the people as a whole' as wall, upon their program with the fearful dread that in the end they may be beaten—not by the other nations involved, but by their own people! In times such as these—following ^reat wars—with all the subsequent shifting of power, financial fluctuations, jockeying for strategic positions in the new world to be formed and especially when two great and, powerful idealisms of government, while friendly on the surface, are actually, under Ihe surface, waging n relentless war for supremacy,—in such uncertain times, democracies should be elastic enough to with quickly arising situations upon an even basis with nations of centralized power—EVEN AT THE EXPENSE OF SACRIFICING -SOME OP OUR MOST CHERISHED DEMOCRATIC IDEALS! If we have any faith al all in our leaders, they should be legally equipped lo f acl in any crisis of great gravity with the assurance that legislative and judicial bodies would assist rather than hinder their course of ;tion. Yes, there is danger in sncli i)owcr. but this danger weighed against the danger of foreign scheming and trickery would be the same a^ the danger of Irnsling the decision of the head of a family without question when the family's homo was about to be undermined and ruined by an outsider. While space will not allow hero to go into detail regarding ihe present world crisis, one does exist, AND OF THE GREATEST GRAVITY. Our new Secretary of Stale. Gen. Marshall, is for instance faced wilh tiiis perplexing problem, along with many olhers of ulniosl equal gravity: Gen. Marshall is now on his way to allend a meeting of world leaders, primarily to work out a basis for a peace treaty with conquered Gerinarty. This, within itself, would be a lask of enormous proportions, considering the aspirations of Russia as opposed to those of the democratic nations. At exactly this critical point there arlssa a question like the ghost at the banquet. Unless America lends >I.M- aid promptly and lavishly, Russia will within a matter of months or perhaps weeks, gain control of ihe government of strategic Greece and perhaps Turkey nnd through them the whole of the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean sector. This coveted position towards which Russia has been working tirelessly since the close of the war amounUs lo a "beach-head" to ihe invasion of the whole of Europe by Russian Communism at the expenr,o of the praclical elimination of Western Democracy! A decision lo give direcl and ini- medialo old to Greece and perhaps England, al this particular time would bo looked upon by Russia -is an unfriendly acl: yet that decision must be made .regardless of relations wilh Russia. Neither can we be in the position of spraying a fire with water with one hand and with easolinr with the other. This sinr- ply means lhat we cannot continue to ship Russia the means and to lend Russia our money with which to prosecute her campaign against Greece and at the same time try to furnish Greece and England with the means of resisting Russia. (We should have learned our lesson from the bullets and shells which killed our boys in the Japanese war, bullets and shells, marie from American scrap iron). Gen. Marshall must make a decision. President Truman must make a decision, our congress must make a decision and make it quickly, an;! even al the expense of wrecking the conference towards which Mr. Marshall is traveling. The history of the whole world may be changed for the nest thousand years if this decision is delayed, if we temporize, If we appease and if after making a decision our government falls lo promptly back thatjdecision.
