WHOSE FA^T? London papers are getting • pretty .^nappy about the wave of criticism of British foreign policies (particu- Uuly with regard to Greece) which h:i.s .swept over this country in recent weelcs. They are "fed up" with being lectured by their Trans-Atlantic cous- in.s on the moralities of European pciliiic-s. If America has a better solution to the immediate and urg- int problems of getting liberated countries on a going basis, why't .she offer it instead of mak- im; only vague, premises of post- w.u- collaboration? | Thi'v all', furthermore, also fed Hi) on criticism from "a source that lia.s done .so little to| earn the right to a posture of superiority," in the uortiiiiy of an article in the London I -Aononiisl. Such criticism,- the Ivjoiiuiiiist asserts, iis "not to be ijonn'" when it conies from a na- (ioii liiat practiced "cash and ciiii.N • during the battle of Britain, whU-h .still ha.s no national service iind civilian consumption iiiis I 'xjKinded instead of contract- ini;, ill the war years. A.s long a.s Amerida 's "lofty moral mnu'riilltles" are not; combined with ••willingness to get; down into the 'lust of ilie arena" and try to work out a and feasible policy in I'.'nropc, Kngli.shman cannot be r:-:|)c(li'(l to iLsten Without "mock• llic article said. * * Thfie i.s con.siderJtbly more than ii to!icli of jasticej to these critl- cisias of our criticism-s of British (Mlify. Whose fault is it that the Greek imbroglio should have arisen to create discord instead of harmony between Britain and Amer- ic.i? I can .see only lone answer to that question. It I 'is Franklin D. Roosevelt's fault. He is the one who ha.s taken over the exclusive j)rcro.!rative of esta|>lishing American foreign policy, i He is the one who has sat acro.ssj the table from Churchill lime after time in an effort to W9rk these things out. \V"liy't he been able to get togetlicr with the British minister on a common policy which would leave no room for Iback-biting and discord? If we had one j clearly defined policy toward Greece and if England had pursued |a contrary one in .•^pite of our protests and objections, then it might be argued tliat Churchill was equally to blame <W that there simpljy existed an irreconcilable divergence of views. Bin what IS our policy toward Greece? WJiat Ls-I our policy toward Italy? Toward Poland? Toward France? Doii 't be backward. .Sl -T .ik right up. mint is it? * * * !l we have any discernible foreign policy at all these days, It Is the ' liaiMl.s off' policy so vaguely and bdatetlly announced by Stettlnlus not noo.sevelt—long after the Ciieek .situation had become hope­ lessly tangled. It is the policy of putting off all territorial adjustments and diplomatic decisions of major importance tmtil after the war. In other words, our diplomatic policy is opcr&tlng in a vacuum so far as the immediate practical j problems of European politics are ; concerned. • It seenw to me that this is a pitiful shape- for the world's most powerful nation to be in at a time when the world is being re-made | before our eyes. We are the ones | who ought to be re-making that world. At least we ought to be having our full say along with the only other two powers who match us in size and .strength. We ou^ht to be "down in the dust of the arena" with them helping work out a "Just and feasible" policy and fighting for our Ideals. Instead, we are in the anomalous position of sitting back with no i policy as though no problems requiring a polidi- existed—while at the same time crabbing our heads off at Russia and Britain for going ahead and tackling in their own way problems which are so real and lirgent that they simply can't ! be ignored. • • • I don't blame Britishers for being { irked at gratuitous American criticisms of their policies in Greece. Until America comes forth with an alternative policy of her own, what right have we to complain at "Britain's actions? If our only European policy for the present is "hands off", why don't we keep hands off? I keep hoping against hope that the president will some day wake up, take his courage in hand and provide America with a foreign policy, clear-cut and unequivocal, which the nation can rally behind i as an Ideal and fight for as an ' objective. But he certainly hasn't done it yet. And in the meantime the world is burning down. . 25 YEARS AGO Item* Prnm The Redater January 3, 1920 HUMBOLm\ Jan. 2--Mrs. Eva Moon, worthy matron, Humboldt I chapter O. t.

A Dpy in a Virginia Planter's Lift (April 1713) I pi the midst of a di-eam Edward Swain awoke, and for a time he hardly kne^ that he had been dreaming. It seemed very real, a scenfe from life, yet it was misty ' in spots, as dreams are. Parts of it were funny too, but at flrst he could not remember exactly why. Oh yes. He had been captured by a vrar party of the Tustiarora Indians who took him to their camp. After awhile they brought him ' out to where they were all sitting around a fire, and from their ma- licious looks he knew that they intended to make cruel sport of him. Then he stood up and began to : talis to them. All of a sudden he : knew their language—or so he dreamed—and he made a jolly speech, and told some jokes. He was surprised at himself; he had no idea that he could speak so well. The Indians roared with laughter. After his thoughts about the dream had drifted away S-wain was still only half awake, so drowsy indeed that he did not : realize where he was. He turned over on the soft feather bed and was about to. drop into a doze, when he heard the hall clock downstairs strike six. It had a loud, dull, hammer-and-anvU note that quivered in the air, and was very different from the thin, sil- . very sound of his own clock at Bebnore plantation. All at once he knew that he was in the home of his friend Henry Randall, near Williamsburg, where he stayed as a guest whenever he attended the meetings of the House of Burgesses. The dark curtains of the bed were drawn close together in the fashion of those days, when people were mortally afraid of night air so ho did not know tlie sun had risen. * « * "OUT he was wide awake at once and before the last quivering sound of the clock had dieu on the air he was gettinr up. It was his custom to rise at every morning; it was also the custom of everybody else ir colonial Virginia except a few lai sluggard^-. He went to a bedro^ winr'o and looked upon the awakening day. The sun was just abov th •horizon. Its long. Icel rays gilded the tops of the pine trees and ran , across the brown fields. The April ^ green of the new leaves on tlf ' trees made '.itricate -jtlern . against the blcachct .vhiteness i • tne sky. Bcliind liie bouse, in full; (The Bettmann Archive) ^•ghteenth century Virginia was famous for its hospital- ity.c (Chapter III,) view "frorp. his room, were the slaves*' quarters—tiny log cabins with yvhite smoke coming from their itlay chimneys. Near them were the stables, the kitchen garden a^d the sprawling blank- faced barns. Slow-moving white and black servants went about their |asks with the sedate and dignifisjd reluctance of unpaid labor. A Negro, girl came from the co5y-shed wftli a wooden pail full of milk. At the border of an adjoining field a white man of servile/ condition was hitching a horse h> the harness of a plow. As Rdward Swain looked lei- siuelylbver this sunlit and peaceful sceJSe he thought it is wonderful to be alive. • But this pleasant idea hrfd hardly entered his mind before .t was slashed to pieces by unfrienxily memories that came like ar^ed men prepared to ravage and destroy. In so/ne way, Edward recalled, \ he hadjoffended Governor Spots- ; WOOD. M he only knew what he , had doKe he might mak" amends, ; bu the Governor—when asked point-blink by Harry Randall- said tlikt Mr. Swain had not offended him in any way. Nevertheless,*? on that satne day, he withdrew Edward .Swain's pro- i posed :_appointment as deputy i IreaKuvt^}- of the colony. i And ^iial wa.s not all. At litis i sc 'S ?io y ' the House of Burgesses —• saf down on the bed to cal- i culat ve number of day., ju his ; fiiigcrlii>s—at thifii session of 12 i days ' / had lost more than 5t) pounds sterling ; . "ards and dice. , It \va. ftiore than he could afTord. Thank -i^od. Die session i.s no-.v 71 over, he mused, and I am going home today. Then there was the disturbing memory of his first attempt last Tuesday to make a speech in the House of Burgesses. What a fool he had made of himself! « * • •DEFORE the House there was a bill for increasing the import duty on slaves. It was already 20 shillings for every Negro brouglit into tlie colony, regardless of age or sex, and now they were trying to raise the duty to 25 shillings. Just think of it. Tobacco down to two-pence a pound and everything else rising in price. An adult slave was worth from 30 to 40 pounds, but after one had been brought into the colony it was a long time before he could be trained to farm work, and intmy ditnl in the first year or two. fJie proposal to raise the import duty was . destructive measure. Of this Jdward Swain had no doubt whatever, and he had • - •^iilved t uelivcr a .speech against the bill. Hut wlieh ho Kot up on hi.-; icet anci every face was turned expectantly toward him ho felt \ory loolish He forgot what he i. tendc^d to say. ac had been humiliating. The tyleasant spring morning had lost its charm when it appeared ;igains-, the background of that si;cccii.
