Actually it is not much more than r>00 days ago, but those days have been filled with developments which make that argument seem hopelessly remote. In that remote day, however, the issue of a hard or soft peace for Germany was a very real ono.Ihe quality of the peace terms promised to be a determining factor in the question of whether peace was to be lasting. . , The debate was academic, to be sure Some excellent minds ongag- od in it, but unfortunately they belong for thc most part 'io men and women outside thc realm of professional politics. The argument was based on the assumption that one of the principal jobs of peace would be to render tho aggressor nations powerless to make war, and that the job would enlist thc same united effort that marked thu victorious collaboration of the Allies. Time- will tell whether the issue of a hard or soft peace was real, vital and fateful. And 'the answer may not be long in coming. But one thing is certain: Right or wrong, real or illusory, the victorious nations can not join that issue again. ,. Germany already is a potential pawn or partner, at leasl. Such a .situation is certainly nol "in 1hc interest of world pence," as Mr. Byrnes said. But it is a real and apparently unchangeable situation, nevertheless. And il makes ihe :.u- f Germany a grave and ex lure o plosive problem. In an even broader sense thc problem of Germany is a sample and synthesis of the problem confronting all mankind. It has been argued that Die Germans are perhaps the most aggressive people in Europe.Their science and industry are vital lo European economy.

The defense pointed out that between thc two crimes, Heath hrd had a normal and "gentle' affair with another woman. This, the defense argued, indicated that the two killings were committed only when Heath suddenly went insane regarding sex relations—probably because of the strain of thc war in which he served for live years.
