It may be designed to uniiy public opinion and to suppress, criticism. Or perhaps its chief aim Is to tighten up some Itjose and devious operations of the Jap war machine. ' Certainly the parliamentary shakeup is one reflection of Japan's conscjou-sness of her growing peril.

Tlie di.spatches don't .say when, where, or how the bov .s ever liad a chante to chaniie their clothes and get warm and dry again—if they did. * :i ^ I can't help wondering what effect it would have if before voting on national .service legislation, all our congi-essmen would be requhed to read about this Jittle incident, then walk down to the Pnt -omac river, wad^ in up to their wnisl ,s. walk b.iek to tlie C.ipitol :in(l j i I heir voles oitl on tlir .snow covered lawn with the icicle .s still • daneling down their pants legs. 1 wonder if they would still feel that the "rights of free labor" are more in-ecious and more important than backing np ouv soldiers with every re.souiY'o and every compul- .sion neces.sary to liring the war to an eiul at the earliest possible minute. BLANK CHECK A valuable offshoot of the Jesse Jones-Henry 'Wallace controversy was the airing, during hearings on the George Bill, of a startling example of government by men, rather than by law. In the operations of the Reconstruction Finance Corp. ;ind lUs subsidiary agencies. Apparently it even startled lioine of the congres.smon to hear Mr. Joiif.s catalog hi-* wide discretionary |)ower.s H.S RFC director. And they coLiUln't point any uccu.slng fingers fl«ewhere. for It was Ihey them­ .selvcs and their predecessors who had granted Mr. Jones these powers. The RFC director summed them up tersely: "To make loans in any amount, for any length of time, at any rate of Interest, to anybody." He had to come to Congress for money, and the trusting Congress secnvs always to have rcsiranded with a bliink check. And niTt until the war, it appeared, was presidential approval required on |IFC activities, and then only on major war item.s. , Congress's trust in Mr. Jones was well placed. He and his RFC associates are men of integrity. They operated the agency honastly and at a [irofit. and with no hint of scandal. It is fortunate for the country that they did. But that is no reason why the RPC's structure, with its present loo.>, temptation and potential danger, should not be altered by Congress and put on a sen.siblc, responsible basis—whoever is running it.

The chief dilferencc secm .s to be thitt a fiction of free speech and representative government still exists in Japan. There was a general elec-J tion in 1942. Several independent members were elected to the Diet, although the Imperial Rule Assistance Political Society tried to nominate all the candidates. On the same day the new tolali- tariati ixirty was announced, Pre- mitr Koi.'<o had appeared in the lower house of the Dipl and heard 'aomc .sharp criticism of inadequate plane and munitions production from its members. The session read like one of Mr. Churchill's heated .set-to's in Commons, or an uninhibited debate in our own Congress. But the Japanese version of free .speech in' wartime doesn't mean much. ; Tlie Diet can blow off steiiiii, but it can't du much abcjut government policy or conduct of the war. It can 't remove the cublnet. About tlie iictlon it can take Is to rcTiise to approve the btirigct— If it dares. llic Jiipani;sc liovcrnmcnt is largely run from b<-rlnd the scenes by mllitaiv men mid leaders of big l) iiiid industry. Represcnta- llvi?s of the TRAPS and It-s parent oi-ganization, the Imperial Rule Assistance A .s.soclation, may sit in oh the councils, but theirs are not the decisne voices. Japanese ix)litical parties can't be compared with our Democrats and Republicans, nor with the Nazi or Fascist type of party. In Germany, of course, the Nazi party is the German government. It is most unlikely that any totalitarian "party in Japan will have even a shadow of the Nazi organization's power. •What then will the new Jap par-, ty accomplish?
