For, somehow, that war which wns to end wars and make the world safe for democracy has panned out badly. There never has been another time in the last hundreds years when the world has been so unsafe lor democracy That form of government has been slugged to dentli in Russia,' Germany Italy, Austria, Greece, and Portugal, where dictators rule. ¥ H has been chloroformed in Hungary, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, and the •Jitlle Baltic states of Esthonia, Latvia, nnd Lithuania.

In 1018 the Allied countries had won a crushing victory over the Central Powers, it seemed a victory of the democracies over the armed, and militarized monarchies.

This new Germany, restricted by the Versailles treaty to a professional army of 100,000, without airplanes, tanks, or heavy artillery nnd without a navy worth speakinV of, terrified nobody. . Its chief ally, Austria-Hungary, '"camy the small republic of Aus- 'a and the small "kingdom of imgary." Bulgaria, another Ger[man ally, had been shorn of terri- lory and power, and Turkey the other German .allv. had kept only a small corner in Europe, while losing Arabia, Palestine, syrla an* Mesopotamia. In the east of Europe Russia under the Soviets, still WBS a ^1 in territory and population, but a weakling in industry.
