Washington. This is devoted to non-partisan political and governmental news and views written by members of the Monitor's able Washington staff. The feature is highly interesting and informative, sometimes rather startlingly revealing in the light it casts on what goes on at the national capital. Such was a recent "Intimate Message" sub-titled "Seizure of Jewish Problem to Force Chamberlain Away from Germany Features Week's Developments." Far from Washington, we of the mid-west may have thought that in condemning Hitler's purge of the Jews the president was merely expressing the common views of Americans, but it appears that there was more to it than that, much more, of which we did not dream. For in fact America, through its chief executive, was engaging in international politics. It is no secret that Washington, in common with the rest of the country, has viewed •with disapproval and alarm the course of England and France in apparently knuckling under to the Germans and the Italians. There is frank fear that the principle of democracy has been yielding to the theory of dictatorship and that the two great democracies of Europe hav'v unwittingly been preparing for descent to sec- tration and an embarrassment to the republican party. This Is not to say that under the spoils system displacement ot the present aids was not in good time due or that the appointees cannot t!o as well as, or better than, the present aids. These questions are not touched upon here. But It Is to say that Mr. Miller went about his appointments in a crude way and apparently without even a thought of the platform on which he was elected. That platform said: "We pledge ourselves to the merit system virtually destroyed by New Deal spoilsmen. It should be restored, improved, and extended." Mr. Miller was, and still Is, politically bound by that pledge, but It would seem that he has already broken It, for, not being in office .and therefore having had no official opportunity to assess the merits of the present aids, he has served upon them what amounts to notice of ouster, and that without any showing that the riew aids will do as good or better a job. In the absence of a legal merit system, common political decency required that a gesture be made towards observance of the party pledge. Indeed even the etiquette of the spoils system alone demands some finesse In the way of gradual approach to the objective. The public official, let alone an official-elect, who begins with wholesale wrecking of his office personnel, like a bull in a China shop, shocks the Tiioral sense of the people without regard to party. Mr. Miller and every other member of the new administration from governor down need to recognize that they are on trial, not only on patronage but in all else, and it is up to them to proceed with the utmost circumspection 'f they desire reelection in two years. As regards patronage they cannot get by with the alibi that they do only what the democrats did. Their party promised a better system and the people expect them to pay a decent regard to to the pledge. And, after all, what course could be better calculated to win the favor of the people, promote reelection, and consolidate the policies of the party in power? Why is it so 'difficult to make politicians and high public officials see this and act accordingly? The Wilson administration, even before it enters the statehouse, faces its first test right here. Will it keep its party pledge? In the absence of law, will it practice a decent merit .system voluntarily? Will it go farther and establish such a system by law? HODGEPODGE Webster—A stew of wlons In* gradients | a mixture.- SATURDAY, SUNDAY, and Monday were definitely fried mush and oyster stew days.

This was, and is, a development of mortal interest to America. If France and England yield place as first-rate powers, America will be left alone to defend democracy. The dictators are already turning eyes on South America.

We are therefore vitally concerned in the preservation of powerful democracy in Europe. So when the president uttered his startling public criticism of the recent Hitler persecution of the Jews, and made it of worldwide significance by calling the American ambassador home, he was far from aiming at the persecution alone. In fact he was playing for vastly greater stakes, for he was warning the Ed M. Smith, of the Winterset Madisonian, recalls that when he left the secretary of state's office there were 96 employes.

In so doing, the president, as stated, taking part in high international politics. He was disapproving the recent course of the English in their endeavor at any cost to meet the demands of dictatorship drunk with power. As the Monitor's correspondent writes, he was "playing a tense game for high stakes." He was openly opposing the pro-German policy of the British premier. Again quoting the correspondent: "Every step he took . . . was either a direct or indirect blow at the Chamberlain appeasement policy. On the one hand he held out the advantages of American cooperation to England. On the other he condemned Germany in terms intended to make that country the pariah of the world so hateful to public opinion in England that Mr. Chamberlain would be forced to renounce his efforts at friendship." So there you have what Mr. Roosevelt's dramatic action really meant, something that few Americans realized as they scanned their newspapers and joined in condemnation of the Jewish persecution, thinking that was all there was to it. It was in fact a cose where the "news behind the news" was more important and far-reaching than the news itself. For it brought up again the old problem that has faced America ever since Washington's day how far, if at all, we may indulge in international politics, with the added complicated confusing, and fatefully important question whether in these modern times we can, even i we earnestly wish it, isolate ourselves from, the problems of the world. ple wait to see whether the new governor has the courage to stand up for this reform and was sternly stand off the hungry horde of job- seekers> Itt the mass the public is careless, and it Is anthn^ , naturallv curious — wants tn know tho whv n» , .
