AFTER BERLIM. ^ ; More and more indifc£ffii<ms point .0 the probability that the capture oi Berlin will not end the European war. Already there,- -are reports of the government making pl^ns to move to another city, of - citlzen.s -being evacuat^^-»even of plans to "scorch" Berlin factories iind utililie.s before capture fo keep ihem from being u.seful to the con- (|iierors. These report.s are simply in line with the expressed and apparent intention of the German.s to fight clear tlirough to the bitter end. Even .so, I don't .see how the war c:in last VERY long after Berlin has fiillcn. Where will the armies ;;o? Wliat will they do for trans- IHirl :ind .sui)plios? The n-a.soii Bcrliti hiu; been ;i liViihc iiulii;try taryel for Allifd bumbcr.s i.s that it is literally the fenter and hub of the whole German war effort. All highways, all railroads, and all communications load to and radiate out from Berlin. It is the Chicago and Kansas City of Germany all rolled into one. Willi Berlin in Allied hands, the ))r()l)lcm (if .sujiplying German arm- ic.s wiih thr- barest es.sentlols of lo(j(l, iiasollnc. and ammunition will iH 'rnmc more than critical, it will bi'i'dinc iilni.).;!

Ilicy will inevitably be reduced to the .'-tatus of guerilla bands. Of the Russians aren'f'in Berlin yet. And in spite of their amaziHH advance, the only sizeable German force.s completely cut off nr -annihilated" are the 200,000 or so in Prassja. There is still ilto possibility of the regrouping of forces and a tremendous' pitched l):itlip before Berlin falls. constitutional. It certainly is time something were being done—and done right. i "FREE LABOR" In a letter to all house membeis today. President William Green of the APL called for defeat of the proposed limited national service legislation for men between 18 and 45. He contended that it Is contradictory to be fighting to stamp out totalitarianism abroad "while at the same time through the enactment of legislation we Impose It upon free labor here at home." If it is "totalitarianism" to require Americans to give up unessential work in time of war, what is it to require them to give up all work, not to mention family and home, and go out and risk their lives in battle? Is there any reason why "free labor" can't stand a little compulsion in time of v?ar along with everybody else? Would Mr. Green suggest a vol- ijnteer army? Would he suggest voluntary price control? Voluntary rationing of scarce commodities? Voluntary selling and buying of critical war materials? Voluntary income tax rates? Every "free" American citizen expects to Ije subjected to all Vinds of "totalitarianism" compulsions in time of war: it is the only possible way a war can be run. To argue that it is "contradictory" to enforce compulsions upon American labor in time of war just because, totalitarian countries do the same thing in time of peace is plain silly. lag -IOIARECaSTEB, MONDAY EVENING, JANUARY 29, 1945. i ' - • "Who Won?" t 25 YEARS AGO t * Item* Fran The V^rlster * •:• January 29. 1930 •:• I • Mr. Chas.

NO LABOR POLICY Now that a federal judge has de- c-idf'd tliai the pre.sident exceeded his ;vv\ihority in ordering the army tu .sie/e Mont°cimery Ward's, even who .shouted the loudest protests when the action was taken have .sobered up con-siderably, wondering just what effect it will have on our war-time labor dispute machinery. Everyone agrees that the quicker the case is appealed to and decided by the .supreme court the Ix-lter. The whole thing gets back to the .simple and .sorry fact that the United States has had no true and agreed upon labor policy since the war began. It needn't have been that way. If it had, upon at the right tli ri'.sentatlve.s of labo and government could ii nation-wide labor'''', whii'h could have t! •SOME labor policy up; KUild have iinvecd. Tlirii confcre.s.s could have enacted leuisUillon dearly and compre- lirn.slvely Implementing Xfyat policy with enforcement machinery. En- furcemcut then would have had to be aijplled only to the recalcitrant "fringe" instead of to the whole body of labor and management as has been the case these'past three years. It .still isn't too late for such a conference. A war-time labor policy still needs to be formed because the war certainly isn't yet over. And a reconversion labor policy is perhaps even more important. What will our ' labar objectives be after V-Day in Europe? After V-Day in Japan? ' My chief complaint against the Roosevelt administration has always been that it can't make up its mind. It invariably temporizes, compromises, and improvises instead of ^adopting a clear-cut policy and .sticking to it. , Nowhere, goodness knows, has this characteristic been more painfully evident than in the field of labor relations. The pay-off is now, as we discover that .the patch-work which is called a policy is so vague and Ill- formed that it apparently isn't even Kditorial: Of all the ineffable and unutterable and indefensible, intolerant, intolerable rot that ever got into senatorial speeches or into ordi- narilv sensible newspapers the worst is the talk we have heard so much of for the last year about the United States "signing away our American Independence" if it enters into the League of Nations. The independence of America could not be signed away even if ijoth Houses of Congress and the President should deliberately intend and attempt to do so. ITiat it would be rehnquished merely as an incident to our membership in a world organization is preposterous. We have no quarrel with the man who opposes the League of Nations because he thinks it wouldn't work, or because he thinks it will make trouble uistead of averting trouble; but it is hard to keep our respect for a man who opposes the League and gives as his "reason" the assertion that to join it would put an end to American independence.—Charles F. Scott. HUGE NUGGET Holterman's nugget, a mass of gold mixed with rock, found in a reef at Hill End, New South Wales, Australia, in 1872. was valued at $60,000 but would be worth nearly $125,000 today.
