The A l f a Romeo Company of Italy--Resolved not to give baskets of fruit and wine to our worker? on Stalin's next birthday. * * * Most i m p o r t a n t prediction the American people want for the coming year Is whether 11)52 will bring peace or war. My prediction is that IB52 will bring no World war; neither will it bring complete peace. I n t e r m i t t e n t , hostilities will continue in Indo- Chlna, perhaps In Iran, possibly the Egypt- PaleMlne-Syrlan area. More Important than Ihosn small, isolated warn, however, is a test of the American people which the Kremlin lias been waiting for ever since IH45. ·After V-E Day, Kremlin planners predicted the Uniled Slates would suffer a serious depression from the end of war orders, then would proceed lo fall apart at the seams. It would not bn necessary to declare war on the U.S., predicted the men of Moscow. The American people would be so disorganized, so divided by internal bitterness, so shorn of leadership lhat · Communism would merely pick up Ihe pieces. This did not happen. It did not happen large- ly'because the Uniled States proceeded to exert wise and d i f f i c u l t leadership in the rest of the world through the Marshall p l a n ; through the North Atlantic pact; and through m i l i t a r y aid. Howcyer, d i p l o m a t i c observers, who have the advantage of looking at us from a 'distance, begin to delect some of the things t h a i Moscow wanted In 1945--rumblings of bitterness, i n t e r n a l strife, lack of confidence, growing isolation, disillusionment. The year 19.M witnessed devastating debates which split Ihe nation Inlo bitter factions--the ^ticbatr over MaflArthur, the debate over an am- ·bassa'do'r lo The Vatican, the shock at incomo-tiix schanrlals, . ·*" Bvcn before these wounds have healed, the nation now faces a new and always d i f f i c u l t de- bale--flvcr who will be Urn nexl president of the United States. During the coming year names will be called nnd passions will flare. During 1952, also, American leadership in the fcst of the world will he--slowed to .a wail's ,, Pace. We will be too .busy 'with our own problems. That Is why diplomatic observers are worried. That Is why the Kremlin is reported watching the U.S. more intently than ever. That is why tlu- year 1052 may be the most crucial since Pearl Harbor. * * * Here is a resolution w r i t t e n in 1!)I7 by William Tyler Page, former clerk of the House of Representatives, which all Americans might keep (,n mind for 11)52: . "1 believe in the United Stales of America a s ' a government or the people, for the people, by Ihe people; whose just powers arc derived from the consenl of Hie governed; n democracy in a republic; R sovereign nation of many sovereign stales; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and h u m a n i t y for which American patriots sacrificed their jives and fortunes. "I therefore believe il is my d u l y to my country to love il; to support its conslitution: to obey its laws; to respect its f l a g ; and to defend it against all enemies." * * * II was definitely an order from Moscow that put the four American fliers in Hungary on t r i a l for espionage.

Helpl" I There was, apparently, no one :ncar enough to bear nr, and with ja super-effort she fought down her : rising panic. She must not yell, liike that, she must keep her he«d '--do something! ! Where were all the people who .belonged in the outer office? Would 'they never come hack? Struggling against the shock and the nightmarish feeling of unreality she tried to think clearly. What -ought she to do? Find some other .nfflce on the floor and tell what had happened? Ring for the elevator man, call the police? That wns it, of course! · The right thing to do was to call the police! Hut If she did she 'ought to slay there--right where she was with that--lhat thing lying .on Ihe floovl lleslde.1 If she called the police, she would br questioned. The box of old trlnkcls she carried woulil be examined, her need for sclllnf them pried Inlo. Her name would 'come mil In Ihe newspapers-Tommy's name too. And Tfiun- bull's. That was almost the wortt as- .pect of the whole wretched iltU' ation; The House might h* In volved, for this dead man, who 'looked »J If he must he Important possibly the very person who ha( deult w i t h The House In year* past, would be comwcM with hat fact, and the whole revolting publicity would come about be- ause she, Alma Conroy, had come o sell jewelry because her hus- land who also worked at Trum- ull's was in trouble! It was a grim picture, but what was she to do except her obvious duty? Could she telephone the police anonymously? For a long moment she stood coking at the telephone her heart beating wildly with fear and doubt. Then, jusl as she was about o take the phone out of its cradle, a brighl object in a far corner of he room caught her eye. Some- .hlng small and gleaming. Even at that distance Ha shape was Instantly familiar. She went cold all over and her hand frose n mid-air over the telephone. The [ew steps which it took to cross Ihe office felt leaden and endless. She picked the thing up, aeeing t through a sickening fo« of terror. Bui she had not been mlstakt en. It was one of the gold and moonstone cuff-links she had made tor Tommy and which had been missing from the shoe-box that morning. How had It got here? Even while she asked herself the question she remembered n sickening fact. That morning Tommy had put on a shirt which required nks! Suddenly everything In the pic- lure was changed. With her old, jnbreakable Instinct to protect Tommy, Alma slipped the cufflink Inlo her purse and, galvanized Into action, made for the door. Now It was Impossible to telephone Ihe police, anonymously or otherwise. She must f»t away and gtt away fast. Nobody must know that she'd been in the place and she must leave without being «e*n If possible. 'I'HF, corridor mitsld*. wa« «tll 1 M«lf tod ah« wtIM OhtMlk t swiftly, but with as much composure as she could muster, the adio blaring after her. At the far end of the hall she qund a stairway and ran down hree nights. Then, after leaning against the wall of the stair-well while she caught her breath she orced herself to walk quietly to i different elevator from the one he had come up in, and pressed he down signal. A few moments ater she was mingling with the crowds on the sunny street. Alma walked rapidly for several blocks' without the faintest idea of where she was going or what she was going to do. The shoe-box was still clutched tightly under one arm,'while Inside her purse he tell-tale cuff-link seemed to burn: she felt as though it must, n some mysterious manner, show through the thick folds of the eather. For the moment the urgent necessity for raising money 'or Tommy was completely wiped out of her mind by the storm ol doubt and suspicion which her adventure hid aroused. What had Tommy been doing n the M a m m o t h Company's offices? Surely, turely he could not have been alone! He couldn't have done this thing--he. couldn't I But he was invplvtd. People who were mixed up In rounders were-- acceawcies, yes, th«t w»s the word. . · · ».' at 1U worst the situation teemtd utterly inexplicable. Why on earth should Tommy wish to kill Mr. Wheeler? He didn't even know the man so far as |he was aware. Why should Tommy hive gone there it ill? The price he might have got for those cufflinks would have been a mere fraction of the mim he needed. No, he would hardly have gone (here to sell them, especially In view of her promise to get the money. It wasn't like Tommy to exert himself whre ha could get someone else to do a job for him.

Turning to Papa Victor Blanchard was out ol the question. TM shock would kill him. WALTBft UfTMAMtf No one can, I believe, predict what li going to happen during 1951 because the course of events Is not predestined. It will be shap ed by the estimates, calculations and judgments of men, particularly of course the leading men in the leading governments. The great question, it secmx to me, is whether there is reason to think that-there it now anything like a hard core of agreement on what is 'the situation of relative power. This is the kind of agreement, in fact the only kind of agreement, which is in my view now possible between the two worlds. They cannot collaborate in any confident way. If they can avoid a collision, it will be because both make the same basic estimate if the balance of power between them. There in considerable, though not conclusive, reason for thinking that on both sides of the line the banic estimates of the responsible and soberest men are not radically different. That at least is the way they have all been acting--as if all realiy:d that neither las decisive military power, that both have great deterrent power, and that any big'change, in this equilibrium will come not by orthodox military action but by political developments in our or- jit, in theirs, or perhaps in both. During the past year two great developments--the Korean war and American rearmament--have, t seems to me, added great weight o this theory. A- y%ar ago our forces in Korea were in a very ad way. As a matter of fact the 'lower of our Army was in deadly peril, had the Soviet Air Force and Navy been put into the battle, [n Western Europe . the way was open. The meager forces of the western nations were dispersed, and incapable of resistance, because they were merely armies of occupation. In Europe and the Far East the dominating military fart was t h a t --except for the powerful but limited blows which our strategic air force could then 1 , strike--it would have taken us 1he usual :hree years to reach full mobili- sation. It was this enormously long time lag which, more than anything else, made aggression seem a safe risk to the Germans in aoth wars. They expected to win the wars abroad, and to bring the conquered peoples into their own camp, before American intervention could become effective. It is often said that Hitler would not have started the war in tbe West had he known that America would fight. Perhaps it would be still more accurate to say that he would not have started it had he known that England would hold out while America got ready to fight. Now, the most important military development of 1951 has been that the time required to mobilize the full power of this country has been greatly shortened. This has been the immense military achievement, the inner and far-reaching success, of the American rearmament. The crucial idea of correcting our greatest weakness in the two world wars we owe to General Marshall and Secretary Lovctt. On December 14, 1950 they prevailed upon the National Security Council to make shortening the time lag the national policy. That was in the midst of the retreat from the Yalu R^ver «nd in the panic and hysteria which prevailed in Washington it would have been easy to make a lees statesmanlike decision. The decision, · however, was to establish a capacity for military production which would, as General Marshall says 'reduce the time required for lull \ mobilization." This decision is being carried out successfully and, as I understand it, within the year the usual time lag will have been reduced so radically that the United States will be able to exert l great military power from the beginning of any great war. This is an historic transformation in America's position in the world. * Whatever else is done in the way of economizing on the military budget,- this part of the program should be fully sustained,. The reduction of the time lag is already so far accomplished that the old formula of the aggressor * --to conquer and consolidate be- . fore America wakes up and rearms--has been rendered obsolete. Thinking this, I find it most interesting that the Soviet Union was passive; while with all the trumpets blowing and the flags flying we advertised our weakness and set out to correct it. There is no more interesting ^peculation than that--than the question, as an eminent logician put it, of "Why nnt yesterday?" Why did the Kremlin not start an * aggressive war when the Western world was almost disarmed and was off balance in Korea? Why* did it not start a preventive war when we were entangled in Korea and with China and were preparing to rearm ourselves and the Europeans and the Japanese? I have no idea, of course, how Stalin answers these questions when he is talking tn his own intimates. But I think the most reasonable answer that we can adopt for ourselves is that despite the West's military weakness in 1950, there was no aggressive war Ruse the Soviet Union knew it could not in the long run be won against the comparatively invul- . nrrahle power of America; and that there was no preventive war to forestall our own rearmament because (1) it could not be pre- » vented, but only accelerated, by war and (2) t h a t - t h e problem of our rearmament soberly and pr»- fessionally examined, shows unmistakably that it is not designed for, or capable of. a preventive war by the United States. The ill- informed and the irresponsible may talk wildly about "dropping the bomb." But those who understand the military position best know the best that without the active assistance of a dozen nations in Europe and Asia, not *" much of the military might of this f^ country can be brought to bear v j upon the Soviet Union. j - This is the military equilibrium which both worlds, it would seem, have found it prudent to recognize, not yet in their words but, in their deeds. Dear Miss nix: Five weeks ago we moved into a new neighborhood, not for from a relative Thij lady is a very fine person," but she comes calling before! breakfast and stays a good part of the day. She includes me in all her plans, many of which arc almost impossible for me to carry out. My husband has told her that we also have plans, but it does no good. Her husband did us a favor and we owe them a great deal of gratitude so I have to hurt her feelings but she is Retting on my nerves. Minnie. Answer: Your relative's Intentions are probably very good; as a stranger in a new neighborhood she wants to see t h a t you Ret well established, make friend* and enter into local activity. She is definitely overdoing the good neighbor policy and without causing hurt feelings it is almost impossible to curb her exuberance. You might develop some interests of your own so that you're unavailable for some of her plans. When she comes calling before breakfast, tell her .tactfully'you have work to do and must be about it.
