DHEW Wnshliigloii--The last time Winston Churchill met In an official conference with Harry Truman, he was on the ebb-tide of a great a n d " glorious career as war prime minister; Truman h.-itl Just t a k e n over the complex burdens of Franklin Itoosevell. Thai was at Potsdam. Thn other fi«urc af Fotidam was Slnlin, and Churchill has. never forgotten how Trimiiin--new, nervuiis, peppery --began that session. He b««an it by law-linn nut Stalin for lichiR lalf. The t r a i n through Pnland was fine day liile srrlvlnB. and T r u m a n , w i t h o u t directly referring lo this. rlnlivpird « 2l)-mlnutc lecture I" the nusslan rlliMalor t h n t sessions would begin on llmf, would be conducted wilh regularity, with a definite agenda, and so on.. During the lecture. Churchill and J l m m l e Byrnes, then secretary of slate, exchanced glances, They wished they voiiltl f i n d some way to rod-pcdal tbe new president. But tliry couldn't tug at the T r u m a n conttalls. And a f t e r It was all over and Secretary Byrnes was about lo give T r u m a n a friendly suRsesllon that the lime In bnwl out Stalin was when the conference was deadlocked, not when It slarlrd, General Vatighan pined up .to tell Truman how wonderful t h r bawling *iit hart been. A few days later, Winston Churchill went down lo nvprwhclmliiK defeat In the British election. 1 !, packed up and departed from Pots- cUm, leaving Harry Truman to pilot Anglo- American relalionn over the uncharted seas of the stormy postwar world. * * * Truman and Churchill mot again at Fulton, Mo.. In IIHO, but Churchill was only an ordinary cltb.en then and there were no problems to discuss. Today Churchill comes back at thf rbli.lldc of his life, at the ebb-tide of the British Empire. He w i l l try. to recover lot tho empire, and he w i l l try tn recover the policies dropped when lie was dcfenlecl at Potsdani. He will not find tbliiKs quite the same as duiiiiR his previous conference with Mr. Truman, however, nor on bis previous visits to the While IlmiM. Mr,. Truman is older, more experienced, but just ·»« peppery, just-'as .inclined to bawl nroplc out. -In fact,".-pomp 'of- his advisors hnve fearer! he might bawl out Churchill h i m self for proposing another mcetlns of the MR Thrc?--Slfilin. Trumnn and Churchill. If Mr. Truman bawled out Mr. Churchill rc- cardlng Ihc unity of Europe, it misht set a new milestone for. worlrl peace. For most of Europe w i l l ho watching the Churchill-Truman confer- once lo sec whether tile United Slates follows Churchill's lead for the disunity of Kuropc. or whether C'lniichill follows our lead tor the uni- ficallon of Europe. So If Mr. Truman took Winston lo tar-k "ii this vital policy, ho would cot cheers, not only from most of the prime ministers butyfrnrh the ordinary folks of Europe. Truman Is more likely, however, tn rlrtlvrr a lecture not on this major Issue, but on the much less Important matter of Churchill's idea of a Blc Three meeting. For HST has repeatedly staled that It was up to Stalin to come lo sec him, not vice-versa. And Mr. Truman was a bit irked when the new prlme'.mlnlstcr would not listen to the advice of our. /^iji«rtc,»n embassy in London to' omit from .*'· tceent.. speech all reference to a Big Three meeting. 1 ' Another tblni! Churchill will f i n d d i f f e r e n t is the atmosphere arountl the White House. D u r i n g thn war days, Ihe' White House became a sort of second home lo Winston, lie and his personal staff occupied n sulle of rooms In the White House and Churchill used to thumn 'down the corridor to the bedroom of Ihe president in his slippers, a gold kimono f l a p p i n g round his h a l f naked torso at all hours of tho nitjhl, In order lo push British policy across on the sometimes reluctant Roosevelt. * * * These midnight confcrcpcos became so routine thai American m l m i n i l s and generals worried abmit tlicm. C h u r c h i l l has the: habit nf not getting up u n t i l 10 or 11, then fjoinp: to bed ^ftor lunch and sleeping most nf the afternoon. Much of his most important business, therefore, lr. carried on between Ihe rnrl nf dinner fit 10 p. m. and bedtime at 3 n, in. The late hours, American m i l i t a r y rl.nimcH. wore HooKcvell out. Furthermore, they ^I'-pnclcd t h a t the British prime m i n i s t e r chose them to dtscups important decisions; ;i weary FDR was more likely to compromise: second. because tho m i l i t a r y was not around riurinp these nocturnal conferences to object to ChurehUllan decisions. Be that ss it may, Harry Truman is not goine iti for these late narlovs. He bus iilre.adv pent word lo the British emlnsM' t h a t his bedtime is around 10 n. m.

Inlortwinpcl with Churchill's past is one great policy which he has alweys followed--friendship w i t h Ihc United States. Sometimes that friendship has been a slightly domineering partnership wherein John Bull piped the. lime and Uncle Sam paid the bill. Nevertheless Churchill has fundamentally and continuously felt thiil British and American friendship vas the host Riiaranlce nf the peace nf the \\*orld-- though the empire, of course, always came first.

An ingenious butcher in a small Southern town has found a way to get around a lot of price regulations that did not meet with his ap 7 proval. Ho ran the following ad in the local gazette: "Lost, on Main Street, an envelope containing three crisp new live-dollar bills. I offer n reward of a six-pound sirloin to the man who returns it to me." One day after the ad appeared, the butcher had forty-one envelopes returned to him, all complete with three new five-dollar bills. * * + .

The coffee was too hot for her and she put it down with a sigh, exclaiming, "Oh, dear, my bus leaves in three minutes." A polite cowboy promtly handed his cup to her, explaining, "Lady, I'll be obliged if you drink this coffee of mine. It's already saucered and blowed." By Nina Wikex Putnam Coprrigkt 1951 b, NEA Strrict, Inc. j XIX j A L M A drew M deep breath. So i It was Bright Muncic who had '.been In that office where the man ;iay murdered! For all his petty I weaknesses, Tommy was incnp- i able of such a crime and she j should have known it all along. jShe went over to him and touched jhis hnlr gently. I "Tommy-something very serious jhns happened," she began. "We irony be involved. The only way j we can be of help to each other, [is hy being truthful. I beg you, i in the name of everything we have j meant to each other, be frank!" i "All right." he snid. "What is ' "A man has been killed. At the ! Mammoth Gold - buying Com- 'Pimy's oflices. I went there to sell !our old jewelry. And I picked this i cuff-link up on the floor." She I told him the details and then nd- ( dcd, "Why would Bright Muncle 'have been there?" ! "Good heavens, I don't know, j Alma I Of course, in his position j'ns assistant general manager, iBHfiht took care of Retting the ,'bids for the workroom sweepings. I Bui this year Mammoth didn't [even put m a bid." j "Look here, Tommy! It's time you told me all about your new job with Bright--I don't care how confidential it's supposed to be." His dice was more serious, his eyes more t r u t h f u l lhan she had ever seen them before. "Too confidential, I'm beginning to think!" he snid flrlmly, "But 1 swear ill I've ever done or been told to do was to rolled payments due and hand them over to Bright!" "Have you ever collected from Mammoth?" "No. Never!" "Krom Higglns, the winning company on the floor sweeping bid?" i "Yes. Tho first time was when I 1 bought you the Bllve.r foxes Bright gave me a package to take riown. 1 don't know what was in it." "That was quite n while ago. Anything since then?" "Yes. Last night, after midnight." 'After midnight?" '1 was sent down right after the sweeping was over. The carpenters had started laying the new floor." 'Bright sent you, 1 suppose. And who gave you the money?" 'T.1IGG1NS himself. In his private office. Part of it was intended for me. Having nil that cash to spend was what got me into trouble." "And the rest you were to turn over to Bright?" "Well, yes. At least I was supposed to hold It until Bright asked for It." "Until Bright asked for it personally? Why not turn it in to the cashier at Trumbull's?" l t understood the money was to be used in some dealings with the diamond curb-market along the Bowery--the sort of thing The House couldn't do oiTlcially but which was necessary because of the diamond shortage." 'And Bright made these curb- market deals personally or through Iliggins and Company?" "I honestly dont know." They were looking at each other with K r o w I n g comprehension. Alma got the feeling that for the nrst time In months they were working toward a genuine cooperation. 'Jewels," he snid at length, "I'm beginning to think that the nmell Hamlet noticed In Denmark was a bunch of rotes compared to what we'ra up against htrel" Despite the wrlousnf.ij of tht moment the could not help smiling; It was so good to (tlmpN the old Tommy through the uncertain mists which had been separating them. 'No matter what he did," she said, "we've always thought of Bright as Mr. Muncie's son, first. It made him practically immune to any very serious criticism." "IT certainly did In my mind. But now I'm not so sure. The Mammoth firm has always put in a bid. Could they have been deliberately prevented from doing so this time? If Bright had been threatened with exposure by Mr. Wheeler, the manager, he might have gone there this morning. To try to stop it." Wait! We must not think too fantastically. Tommy, have you ever bad any other contacts through the Higgins Company? Outside of Bright?" He thought a moment and then frowned. "Only one," he said at length, 'After I was paid off last night Mr. Higgins gave me some stuff to take to Mrs. Denton. Wanted a Trumbull appraisal of It. Bin there's nothing unusual about that: The House appraise* for lots of small flrnu." -What wat wrong with their own bonded messenger??* "Nothing that I know of. Higgins knew I'd be going to The House this morning and Just asked me to hand her the stuff, which I did. Said hit messenger would pick up the receipt later." "I thought I had a first-class Ideology where Trumbull's was concerned," she said slowly, "but I'm a suspicious sleuth beside you! Tommy, what have you thought about the thefts at The House? Doesn't thU begin to hook up with them?" 11 certainly began to make a putlcrn for Almn. She thought of Mrs. Denton, a greedy woman who d e m a n d e d luxuries. Sha worked as on assistant to Mario t a s h l n k n , t h e c h i e f appraiser, Frankly eager for extra money, a selfish, cruel woman, even though she was an expert at her work, "What do you mean?" Tommy a*ktd. "Think, Tommy. Think. It'i c)Mr enough." T» I an d WALTEB LIFPMANN It would, I believe, promote the cause of a united Europe and the organized military defense of Europe if we could reach a clearer view of how the one is related to the other. They are, of course, very closely related. Yet it is not true, it is in fact proving to be a very troublesome untruth, to talk as if Western Europe could not be defended until it had been "integrated" and that the real reason for trying to unite Europe s to recruit some German troops for Hie NATO army. The t i u e relationship is indicated when we compare the time- lahlc of rearmament with t h a t of European unity.. The comparison chows that, brosdly speaking. European unity is becoming a serious business as western re- irmament -p particularly United Stales rearmament--is approaching the point where it is highly deterrent against the invasion of Europe. It is · ot, I believe, a coincidence th '. the Europeans should be showing an increasing practical interest in the cause of A united Europe as the balance of military power between the Soviet orbit and the Atlantic community is being redressed. * * * . Although the European peoples will in the long run be more secure if they can unite, for the shorter run of our own critical rears the Europeans will have to jc made secure first in order that .hey may be willing to unite. The Europeans know what historical experience so fully confirms-that confederations or unions are not only very difficult to form but also that when they have been formed on paper, they are destined to pass a long ordeal of weakness before they are safely consolidated. We in America ought of all nations to be the first to understand how political unions are formed and what are the essential, conditions. Speaking only of the external conditions, our own history shows clearly that the first necessity- of a union of states in process ot formation is that it should he shielded, protected, and /'·'ted attainst invasion, intervention and entanglement. The founding fathers saw this with great clarity. Their foreign policy, as it was formed by Washington. Jefferson, Madison, John Quincy Adams and Monroe, was designed to consolidate the union by taking advantage of the balance of power in Europe and of Britain's command of the Atlantic Ocean. * + * The formation of R European ijnion is a far more, difficult project than was t h a t of he union of American states. For hey had all once owed allegiance .o the same king and they had lever in fact been altogether disunited. The difficulties of a European union can perhaps eventual l.v he overcome. But it is an extreme naivete to suppose that they can be overcome before the next congressional appropriation. Indeed I would say that the more we attempt to force a European union by treating it as something which is indispensable to--but also incidental to--the success of NATO, the more we shall drive the peoples of Europe into opposition and resistance--no matter what the governments may agree to sign under our prodding and pushing. What wo should do," it seems lo me, is to distinguish clearly between NATO, which is * milihry alliance, and a united Europe. NATO should guarantee Europe- all of Europe. But not all of Europe should be, can be. needs be. in?idc NATO. The military alliance, of which we are now the central power, should be governed by the strategic principle of creating a m a x i m u m deterrent force. But this military alliance should not be equated with IJie A t l a n t i c community, which contains many nations that are protected by it but do not participale actively in the military work of NATO. Above all the military alliance should not be equated and identified with united Europe. If that is done, there is little hope that Europe can be united. Let us consider, for example, Austria, which ought to have a. treaty and an unoccupied and united country. Is it possible to believe that the Soviets can be persuaded, induced or pressed, to airee to an Austrian treaty of the liberated Austria is then to be Integrated iBlo a western defense community which Is under the command of NATO ? Is it not necessary to the peaceable liberation of a united Austria that there should be a European system--which is not the anti-Soviet military alliance-into which Austria can enter? That European system must be loose so that there is room in it for nations' with very different social systems. The system must be guaranteed by the NATO military alliance against Soviet aggression. But if in the great discusskm which is going to come some time, the Russians are to be induced to give up their military occupation in Europe, we shall have to be in the position of offering the Rus- lians guarantees of their own security in relation to that European system. The Russians cannot be expected to give up Eastern Austria to the Austrians and* Eastern Germany to the Germans if that means that the evacuated territory is to be brought within the NATO military system. * * · The true object in forming a European political union is not therefore the defense of Western Europe. That must be achieved and assured by the alliance which we are leading. The true object ot a European union is to establish the conditions under which it will become possible for Germany to be reunited, for Austria to be evacuated, and to deal with some hope of success with the enormous changes which German reunification will cause in Europe and in the world. That is why the project of a united Europe is becoming real and important as the essential objective of NATO--which is the military defense of Western Europe--is coming into sight. It will take a long time to make even the plans of a united Europe. But they will be better plans, and I believe they will find much more quickly acceptance in Europe, if they are made witft a clear understanding that what is being planned is the system and structure within which all the Europeans--not merely our firm and close military allies--can eventually find their place.
