The United Slates will have s'ttc'i neutral liglils dining this Kuropcan war as it i.s determined lo defend v.'ilh ;:orce, and no others. It is just as wYfl lo deteiminc now, dm ing the neutrality debate, what lights we piorose to en- OUT OUR WAY force, arid to Insist on no others/ That is the kind of a world il is, and it is unrealistic to act as though" it were some other kind. Thnt is why. Secretary Hull urges Americans in Europe to come home only on American ships. Thuy have the "right" to come in'the Athenias, but it is not now wise to exercise tluit right. That is why the' American nations plan a "peace stone" around their contiiienls equivalent lo the "war zone" around Europe. The "peace zone" is reasonable, and there is some chance that we may be able lo enforce it. Now, if ever, is (lie time for America lo be realistic in action, and lo provide a nice, ijuicl room in which the international lawyers can sit and split hairs undisturbed until sanity returns again to earth. Moving v lowly It is probably just as well thai Hie State Department lias clarified the Uec- luralion of Panama establishing a "Peace /.one" along the American coa.'.ls. Many people had become worried by the prospect that American naval patrol 'ships might become involved in "incidents" with foreign warships while trying to prevent lighting', in the neutral xone. For the present, at least, such patrols are to be an observation patrol only. They are not going to attack foreign ships in the area, or even forcibly drive them out. For tho present, at least, they arc simply hoping to gain voluntary and world-wide acceptance of the wishes of the united Amer icas that warring nations .keep their lighting out of our waters. From this initial step it is hoped that new policies and new concepts of neutral rights will develiix But any "big stick" enforcement is to bo left distinctly dependent on how the policy works .in I ho future.
