It lias .• ranged froiv. ms ridiculous (o (he deeply .serious. Tlie first department was lakei) care of iiejilly by a While House game of po&ium, jji which n Presidential secretary refused lo admit lhat Harry Hopkins \vas out of town even after papers were carrying pictures of II r. Hopkins -taken overseas. The serious aspect'of our continu- ,,, ing policy'of secrecy arose from thc ;;:;exchange of charges and .explanations ;JV between Rep. Marcantonio of New ;;;_Yor'c and Under Secretary of State -;Grew over the terms of the still-secret Italian-Allied armistice of Sept. 3, 1948. .. This exchange simply arided H little "I; more confusion to a situation that has '" beer, a political and .diplomatic mess for ;;; almost a year and a half. During that -; time Italy has been a '-'co-belligerent," -v whatever that may he., An American .-- correspondent in that, country recently -.'.gave the status a clearer Identification ::v, he called Italy "a'sort of Allied Mr. iMarcantonio claimed'thnt Italy lost her^ African colonies, (he island of Paiireljeria - and ; possibly; : .th'e port" of Trieste through the' armistice terms. Mr. Grew, answered'thai the'armistice made no disposition of Italian territories or frontiers. And ho offered the added note that, while thc armislice was concluded on an iincoiidilional-siir- rendcv basis, it had not been necessary to apply.the original terms because of Italy's "co-belligerency.". ' • •'**"• 'hat leaves the. 'Italian' and American and Br.tislv people :knowing just about as much as they did before. They know that Italian forces are fighl- . ing- beside the Allies to thc extent of strength which the armistice allows ; them. Thny know that the Allies are = still'--hold!:. thousands of co-belligerent Italy's soldiers as prisoners of war. They know that the Italians welcomed the Allies as liberators when they entered Rome, no matter how the armistice intended they should be re- •gardetl. But it is no secret that the Kalians in Allied-occupied .'territory aren't eating as well as they did under Mussolini and the Gorman occupation. They know that Italy is neither con- ' fjuered nor Jroveriiing. The Itaiwjis are livirig in a state of uncertainty ami confusion. Their country's financial structure'is reported to be on the verge of collapse as a result. Yet their government seems anxious to please, wijling to continue the war, and • hopeful of eventual solution. It'may be hoped that the Big Three conference will, at long lasl,.evolve a clarifying program for Italy. It j s fj mc that.-Italy is treated either as a conquered enemy or as an ally, and that th» ierrea tinder which she is to exist be made known. -They .residents) don't seem to give a damn. • Tney.donl aem to appreciate how lucky this burg is.

D prnnn j 7 j nn KecoQn i zing WKDNKSDAY, KJC1M5UARY H, 1<M5 We have been (old of 1111 honorably discharged and Ihncc-dcconttcd soldier who, shortly after retiiniinj,' to civilian life in his home town, put on his uniform again. A friend met him on the street and asked him if he had been called back into the service. "No," the .soldier said, "J put my uniform back on because I got so tired of having people ask me why a young man my figo wasn't in the Army." That youiifs' soldier was issued an honorable discharge pin when he left the service. Presumably he wore it on the lapel of his civilian suit. And presumably the people who naked him why lie wasn't in uniform hud no idea of what the pin .signified, if they saw it at all. ;-'.o pa-Imps it is time that all of us starred taking notice. The discharge, pin is plasti.?, and thn insignc is a gold- plated eagle within a circle, with the wings extending beyond the circle's edge. These pins arc given to all honorably discharged men and women when they leave thc service. They .should be worn by the thousands who have already returned to civilian life, and by thc millions who will follow them. And they iiight to bo recognized by all who see them. They are proud distinctions, and they should earn their wearer special consideration and freedom from hard looks and tiresome questions.

Jozcf Eisner said, coming into the room where Frederic was at the piano. "What idiot wrote that?" "Thank you, Professor. 1 am the iriiot." "—Tch, fch. Then I'll listen." . Frederic continued his Mazurka in D-/Int. "—Not bad; not bad at all. Did :I say, 'not had?' Please. Eisner, where is your car? Distinguished! •That's what il is. Distinguished— Kh? Tch, tch—it's magnificent— magnificent!" Frederic yibvcd mil!) ihe final note. Then he came to thc old man iwho took him to his arms, kissed him on each cheek. "Have you seen him?" "—Sliss." Jozcf Eisner closed the door. "Have you seen him, Professor?" Jozef Klsner nodded. "Will there be a meeting'"' "Yes." "What ,-ibou.'. Ihe Russian?" ,TozeE Klsner spoke in a low voice. "Tonight, He's going lo speak—" 'But why tonight? Why must il „. be ton , wanted to hear him. I had made up my mind lo hear him —" "—Tdi, tch. You will hoar him; you'll be there." - "This concert, tonight—how can I get out of it?" Jozef Klsner rolled his tongue. "We'll arrive at thc Count's a little trudged in (ho dark, Jozef _ Eisner holding Frederic's arm. A strong wind sweeping across Ihe open country somewhat slowed their progress. They were in evening clothes. Frederic drew his cape fighter about him. "Do you Ihink they will wail? I don't think they will." He quickened his pace. The old man found it difficult to keep up, he was breathing hard, though he did not complain. "I am sorry, Professor; we will lake it slower." They lurncd off tlie road inlo a path lined or. each side by birches. They paused. They heard only the wind. The path was too narrow for them to walk abreast. Frederic took Ihe lead. They continued for about a quarter of a mile, then they stopped again. Off the path in a place that had once been a clearing but was now weeds and high grass there was a barn, long since abandoned. They worked Ilieir way through the high grass to the farther side of the barn. The door wns closed, (hough not locked. They wen! id- side and from the hayloft they heard voices nnd (hey saw the light from a lantern, partially covered, that hung from a post. A face in shadow looked down on them from above. Frederic said: "Poland free." The face disappeared; the voices were silent, * * * 10Z.EF ELSNER, Ihen Frederic, •' went up Ihe ladder. A dozen persons, men and women in field clothes and jackels, were already in their places. Kon:ta.-.cja Gladkowska took Frederic's hand and pressed it. Standing in the hnlf-light of c shaded lantern thnt cast grotesque shadows on Ihe rolling beams nnd weathered walls was a short, slocky man, a growth of beard on his face. "Has he spoken yel?" Frederic asked. ...... "Just slarled." "— Wall, as I have said," the' 1 stocky man began. His words were! said in ;i conversational manner.' and not in Ihe way of one making- a speech. "America has given us ! Die pattern, H is a good pattern. They fought for the right to live' as free men, for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Those ;ire not mere words. They are things for which a man anywhere can fight wilh his heart and wilh all Ihe strength thai is in him—" There was a dapping ot hand:i. "Quiet!" cried Jan. "None ot thai." "—You arc ready lo fight," the Russian was saying. "We, loo, are ready. We, too, have our meetings. We talk, we understand, then we act. That is the way lo do If. Our weapons first will be printing presses, later guns—and the money to buy them both. We must have money—and more money—and always more money— "Lei mo tell you this: your mcelings arc important—this one and all the others that are being heir! throughout Poland. The Czar is very much troubled, and he has taken desperate measures lo prevent what even he must know cannot be prevented. Unforlunalely, one measure he has just taken can bring no one any happiness. He has sent you a new governor of Poland—" Boots scraped the floor. There were murmurs of "Ah." "—His record is a bloody one. The Czar has picked the most ruthless hangman he could find—" Jozcf Eisner pulled out his walch. Ho held it in (lie dim light close to his face. He took Frederic by the arm. hangman will hunt down meetings such as this—" Frederic was on his feet. "Lot him dare!" Jo/.cf Klsner tugged nt him. "—Damn the hangman!" ho cried, jerkins himself free of Eisner's grasp. "Damn him, damn him!" Jozef Eisner held lho watch' under Frederic's nose. "—To hell wilh tyrants!" screamed Frederic.
