She is celebrating the 25th birthday of her 8-ycar-olcl baby. I hasten to add that the child is tiie ageless baby Snooks. Twenty-five years ago Fanny wheeled out the pestiferous brat on a Ziegfield stage. It was just another characterization in her large repertoire until Fanny revived it for radio. "Snooks came from 'Schnooks'," Fanny says, "meaning not a brat, but far from a goodie-goodie." But the kid has certainly been a goodie- goodie for the Brice bank account.

He had earlier declared that the "status quo" of world affairs was not sacred and unchangeable but "we cannot overlook a unilateral gnawing away at the status quo." Regarding America's role, Byrnes declared: "The charter forbids, and we cannot allow aggression to be accomplished by coercion or pressure or by subterfuges such as political infiltrations. "We must majce it clear in advance that we do intend to act to prevent aggression, making it clear at the same time that we will not use force for any other purpose."

The Russian . situation has be- !ome increasingly important in recent weeks among these people. They are affected directly by every ioviet move .southward. So the most prevalent question •ecently asked foreigners by Jap- inese in all walks was "is America going to back down before the Rus- ians?" Some Japanese probably will take resh hope from Byrnes' remark hat the Allies must not prolong naking peace or continue to impose troons on small impoverished lations. They doubtless will be quick o interpret Japan as one of the alter. The question of the American at- itude toward Russia is one of the asically important yet hidden fac- ors of the occupation. Tho Japanese freely worshipped merican strength from the outset f the occupation. As the American force melted away — homeward bound — and Russia seemed to them to be enforcing demands on the United States, there was a subtle and only partially defined change among the Japanese. Such u trend had potentialities picketing at the GE plant in state of a future stiffening attitude to- I ailc i federal courts "until we win." ward the occupation, or of provid- i JVIUURAVS AiD SOUGHT jna' ploughed mental fields for jin- T)lc ,,j,, Q j- CIO p;.,.^^ .•.{ .

Many already envision Japan as the futule Balkans of Asia, or potentially an active battleground. Russia seemed to be encroaching upon their islands. The United Slates appeared to be Japan's major hope for protection as their old fear of Russia grew stronger. LOOK WHO'S TALKING! (Fort Waynr News Srr.riiicl) Columnist Frank Kent was one of the first lo see a kind vf insane h u m o r in Die conditions which the United States Government recently set down in connection with a gratuity of S25,- 000,000 which it hHiirlprl'lo Croece. Along with the advance of this gift—or "loan," a.s .such things arc caljed in this day of handsomely embroidered English—is ntladieri a list of "conditions" which Greece must fulfill if she expects to tap Undo Sam's (ill for n second or third helping. The conditions are I hat (.irnsc'o must first ."quickly put its house i.n order." Then, with what Mr. Kent refers lo as "impressive soiemnily," the American 'no In proceeds to tell Greece thai her government inusl, in order complish economic recovery, "un- clerlakc vigorous measures to control inflalion, tn slabilize the currency, to reduce 1 Government expenditures, to augment revenues, to increase efficiency and revive industry and trade." It is truly a wonder that .some Greek official didn't say, "You are telling jne?"., Indeed, Uncle Sam is telling Hie Greeks. Uncle Sam, whose very own country has not discovered how to stop inflalion, Government expenditures are the most fantastic in the world, v>hose fjjoyernment is not only largely inefficient but is being run by the mo.Ht bewildered set of opportunists and neophytes in its history; whose government is faced with what amounts to a general industrial strike whit 1 . 1 ! has liter- Mly slopped reA'ival of peacetime manufacturing.; •• We arc telling the Greeks, and it is, as Mr. ICbnl said, "a colossal 'piece of effrontery."

Ten leaders of the CIO electrical union, whose members art; pnvtici- palint!' in a nationwide strike in support ol demands for a $2 daily wage increase, faced contempt charges for orUcrluj; workers to defy the injunction. Hopes that a settlement of the General Motors .strike were, near oame yosterclny after anonuncc- nient that -Jic negotiators would hold a night mec'tins, which W:IK followed by an im.crvicw by union negotiator;; with O.

The council, which aiithomeJ the walkout of 175,000 production workers last Nov. 21, would have to act on any settlement formula developed in the management-union sessions. One of the principal issues unsettled is wages, with the union holcl- out for a pay raise of 19 V2 cents an hour, while the corpora- lions ton offer is 18 1/2 cents.

Reproduced by special permission. The greatest threat to mankind and civilization is the spread of (the totalitarian philsophy. Its best 'ally is not the devotion of its followers but the ccn/asion of its , ; eneniie«. To ffght it, we must un- fdcrstand it. Totalitarianism is collectivism. Collectivism means the subjugation of the individual to a group- whether to a race, class or state 'docs not matter. Collectivism holds 4 hat man must be chained lo collective a c I i o n and collective .thought for tho sake of what is called "the common gwl. * 1 Thrpueiio'if. Jibtory no tyrant evef rose to power except on the 'claim of representing "the common good." Horrors which no mart would dare consider for his own selfish sake are perpetrated with a •clear conscience by "altruists who justify themselves by— Ihe common good. , No tyrant has ever lasted long 1 by force of arms alone. Men have been enslaved primarily by spir- .iluai weapons. Antl the greatest of .these is the colleclivist doctrine 'of the supremacy of the common, ,'Kpocl over the individual. No dic- stalor could rise if men held as a 'sacred faith the conviction that 'they have inalienable rights ot (which they cannot be deprived for any whatsoever, by any man ! whatsoever, neither by evildoer 'nor benefactor; that no cause is higher than these rights. • Individualism holds that man 1.4 ,an independent entity with an in- i alienable right to the pursuil of .his own happiness in a society where men deal with one another ,ns equals in voluntary, unregulated (exchange. i Tho American system is founded ;on individualism. If it is to survive, ;we must understand the principles (of individualism and hold them al .our standard in any public ques- (lion, in every issue we face. Wa [must have a positive credo, a cleat") 'consistent faith. Wo must learn lo reject as lolal {evil the conception that "the com? (won good" is superior to individual I rights. General happiness cannot !bc created out of general suffering and selfrimmolation. The onlj> j happy society is one of happy in-" 'dividuals. Ono cannot have a health}) ! forest made up of rotten trees. The power of society must al-< (ways be limited by the basic, in-- i'alienable rights of Hie individual* (Such was Ihe conception of thf* .founders oC our' country, who (Placed individual rights above anjj 'and all collective claims. .'. Tho right of liberty means man's \right to individual action, individual choice, individual. initiative and. individual properly. Without the right to private properly no iude- ipendent action is possible. . The right to the pursuit of hap- 'piness means man's right to live Ifor himself, to choose what consti. jtules his own, private, personal ^happiness and to work for its achievement. Each individual is •the sole and final judge in this ichoico. A man's happiness cannot be prescribed to him by another man 'or by any number of other men. These rights arc the uncondillon- .al, personal, private, individual ipossession of every man, granted- 'to him by the fact of his birth and (requiring no other sanction. From the beginning of history, two antagonists have stood face to face, two opposite types of men: t?ic Active and the Passive. The iAclive Man is the producer, the 'creator, the originator, the individualist. His basic need is inde.- ipondence — in order to think and 'work. He neither needs nor seeks power over other men— nor can ho be made to work under any form of icompulsion. Every type of good \vork— from laying bricks lo writing a symphony — is done by th« Active Man. Degrees of huinai ability vary, but the basic princi' plo remains tho same; the degrei of a man's independence and in! tiative determines his talent as < •worker and his worth as a man Tho Passive Man is found 01 every level of society, in mansions anfi in slu/ms, and his Cication mark is his dread o£ inde pendenco. He is a parasite who ex> : peels to bo taken care of by otii' ers, who wishes to be given directives, to obey, lo submit, to bl 'regulated, to be JLpld. Ho.-wfelcomoJ collectivism, which eliminates a»S 'chance tliat ho might have lo Ihinlj or act. on his own initiative. When a society is based on Uid needs of tlxo Passive Man it de* stroys the Active; but when lh^ Active is destroyed, Ihe Passive! cannot bUi'vive. When a society is based on. Ihe needs of '.he Aclive 'Man, he carries Ihe Passive oneg along on his energy and raises) them as he rises, as the whole so- cletx. vises. This has been th.ft.pat-* tern of all human progress. Some humanitarians demand in collectivist state because of their pity for the incompetent or Passive Man. For his sake they wish to harness Ihe Aclive. But the Active Man cannot function in harness. And once he is .destroyed, the destruction of Ihe Passive Man follows automatically. So if PJly is tlie humanitarians' first consideration, then in the name of pity, if nothing else, they should leave the Active Man free lo funclion... in order to help the Passive, There is Tio other way to help him, The At.-live, however, are exterminated in a collectivist society. The history of mankind is the liislory of the struggle between the Active Man and the Passive, between the .individual and the collective. The countries which have produced the happiest men, the highest standards of living and the greatest cultural advances! have been the countries where the power of the collective—of the gp\> eminent, of Ihe slate— was limited Dr. H,H.

As examples: The rise of Rome, with its conception of law based on a cil- dzen's rights, over the collect.ivist barbarism oC its time. The rise of England, with its system of KOV- ernment based on Magna Cnrt.a, over collectivisl; barbarism o[ its lime. The rise of the United Stains to a degree of achievement unequaled in history—by grace of the individual freedom and independence which our Constitution gave each citizen against the collective. While men are still pondering upon the causes of the rise antl fnll of civilizations, every page o£ history cries to us that there is but one source of progress: Individual Man in independent action. Collectivism is the ancient principle of savagery. A savage's whole ex- stence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men. We are now facing a choice: to go forward, or to go back. Collectivism is not Hie "New Order of Tomorrow." It is the order of a very dark yesterday. But there is a New Order of Tomorrow.
