The value and Importance of the resignation of Secretary of State Janies Byrnes will be lost unless we go behind the fog of double- lalk and propaganda and recognize that his handling of our foreign policy has been disastrous. President Truman ha* not dropped the diplomatic pilot, he ha.s tossed Jonah overboard to make connection* with the whale. There 1* no need to question the reality of Byrnes’ sudden diplomatic illness in a candid examination of tils failure and the reasons why he failed. Post-war America faces three important problems tn foreign policy, our relations with tin- brit- ish Empire, our relations with the Soviet Union, and our relation* with the "rising tide of color” in Asia and the Near East. Our handling of these problems will determine our national safety, even our survival, in 50 years. To cultivate cheap cheers based on current prejudice and to garner i?audy headlines is not a substitute for a real approach to these problems. ♦ ♦ ♦ Every honest American knows that warm friendship with the British people is a cardinal fact In our foreign policy. Only the international pansies and a handful of southern politicians believe that the British respect servility in the state department. Byrnes placed our diplomacy unreservedly In support of the British Empire« with an enthusiasm that embarrassed even the foreign office. He thus lost all power to influence British nolicy In the direction of wiser settlements of their historic dispute with Russia and their relations with the subject, colored races of Africa and Asia. This fact poisoned American relations with the Soviet Union. Every honest American knows that Soviet-American relations are difficult, shot through with suspicion and punctuated skullduggery. Roosevelt had patiently maneuvered us into a position in which the Kremlin was assured of our good faith and our detachment rom the Britlsh-Russian quarrel. Onee again a* at Pari*, the Italian premier, Alclde tie <;asperi, has raised hi* voice, not only in behalf of hi* country, but In behalf of that free, democratic civilization to which we »till belong. He was In a more difficult sit nation than at Pari* for he spoke, not to all allied peacemakers together, but to the American people, and I thought he showed tact in steering away from the reefs of Internal American divergencies and rifts between the great jpowers. Yet he could not disguise his realization of the unity of Furopean and American civilization, though he avoided any special pleading on Its behalf. ♦ ♦ ♦ While he wax »peaking there were hunger demonstrations in Rome, and the papers which reported his speech brought a photograph of the ragged bodies and pallid faces of the demonstrators. Also, while he was speaking, a socialist congress In Italy led by Signor Nenni, who favors a united front with the communists, heard cheers for Russia and Stalin and hisses for the western nation». Hunger, unemployment, and above all, disillusionment, do not breed democracy but revolution. Signor De Gasperi ha* never been a revolutionist, fascist or red. He is a constructionist, who hopes to move into the future over a bridge one end of which rests upon a solid wall and great humanistic tradition. He does not want to wade into the future through new' prisons of terror and rivers of blood. He believes that great, happy, and peaceful civilizations cannot be built by howding masses swayed by skillful leaders, but by the co-operation of free men. But he also knows that the conditions essential to the creation of free democratic societies are not summarized In freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. These, Indeed, can be the instruments for their destruction if w'ork. break, and hope are lacking. ♦ ♦ ♦ When Italy, on demand, surrendered unconditionally, under a government which had already ousted Mussolini, and afterward j made no mean contribution to our THE WORLD AT ITS WORST By i!!«y<w William# Ne* York By L L.

Finallv, Roosevelt believed that one of the great causes of the w-ar had been European colonial mismanagement In Asia, as evidenced by the easy Japanese conquest of Indo-China, Burma, Malaya, and the Dutch East Indies. The Jim Crow mentality which prevailed in Byrnes’ department palsied our wdll to insist, through the U.

In any case, It Is obvious that Soviet diplomacy can take advantage of our failure to measure up to this opport« !tv.

Total victory is also total burden except for surh as can think in terms of acquiring slaves. We cannot so think for wre know that the world cannot survive half slave and half free, and we should like to remain free ourselves. But the burden which we assumed was the greater because of peculiar problems of Italy, some of which Signor de Gasperi indicated. Forty-six million people live in a country the size of California, with nothing like California’s resources of land or industrial raw materials. Only 50 per cent of Italy's soil is arable; she has almost no coal, oil, or minerals; and with world-wide restrictions on immigration she is unable to export her surplus population, as she did for generations. Premier De Gasperi did not attack the peace treaty nmv ready for presentation, except by indirection. This column has no such inhibitions. The treaty deprives Italy of all her coal—never enough, but amounting to a million and a quarter tons annually.

R* Hi ERS EUROPEAN WITNESS, hy Stephen Spender < Reyna I and Hitchcock; $3). “The Apocalyptic Time in Which We Live,’* as studied by an Englishman on trips to liberated France and conquered Germany, is described here sort of haphazardly, as the author lets the order in which trains and autos deposited him in one place after another determine the arrangement of his book. The visit to France is by way of digression. He found the people at loose ends, aware of work to be done but willing to let George or Georges, do it. He talked wdth Tzara. Benda, Picasso, Sartre, Gide, S'dvia Beach and Aragon and his wife Elsa, author of a novel to be published In this country next week. In Germany, among flattened cities and cave dwellers, he was impressed by the illimitable ignorance; by the general opinion that the young were less infected with nazism than the outside world had feared; by the strange combination of extreme opposites, sentiment and brutality, ny which the man who burned down the village and slaughtered the innocent carried over his heart the smudged photo of his mother, or hi; ^ngi* of her own. So Italy can only get conl from the United States. ❖ ♦ * But Italy can pay for coal only in exf>orted goods. Hence Premier de Gasperia’s plea that America take the lead in general tariff reduction. I greatly doubt that we shall do so, mo where is Italy to go for raw materials? The only other place is the economic complex of the U. S. S. R. Ror Ital’s population, deprived of colonial outlets, oj»en to Soviet, military pressure on indefensible borders, and cut off from the Danubian hinterland by the Venezia arrangement, can only subsist by an intensification of industrialization on the basis of imported raw materials w'hlch she must pay for in finished goods. In a capitalist but protective-tariff world she will, in the long run. be unable to purchase those materials in places from which her exports are barred. <• ♦ ♦ Italy, even within the proposed frontiers, can be a viable state only if, first, there w-ere assurance that those frontiers w'ould be defended against aggression, and, second, if the democratic world would show' capacity for international planning.
