THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round »r MOW KAMOtl Wtlhln(t«n--Though the future of England depend* to "dome extent on the Churchill-Tru- min conferences, there will be two groups o( ptopie witchini the Churchill conference just it Intently is the Britlih. They are: I. The masier-plannerii Iniilde the Kremlin. 3 The lenden of Western Europe -- the French, Beljlins, Dutch, It?Hani, whose, farm* »nd f«ctorlei htve been foufht over for cen- turlw. 9oth groups wiJl be-watching for tbe rame ruuon; To ttt if Prwldent Truman is able to win Churchill over to £urop«an unity; or whether tht itvtrtt happens nnd a new Anfilo-Amer- Ican alliance is Kuperirnposed on top of the North Atlantic pact is iui domineering directors. If the latter huppens, there will be joy In the Kremlin and torrow In Western Europe. But if the former happens, and Churchill is won ovrr to a United Stater, of Europe, there will be much gnashing of teeth in the Kremlin and much joy in Wcttern Europe. * * * It hasn't been published, but fome admin- Inistratlon advisers have been pushing a plan for an all-nut United States ot Europe. Thty even propnte that in the future the United States refuse to put up money for the individual nations, but put up money in a central pool for a United Stales of Europe. Thus, if the British winled to ktay out, they would jet no dough. If they csme in. they wnukl jrl their pro rata share of the money in the U. S. of E. kitty. Whether or not the president will he able', or will even .try hsrd to sell this to Churchill remains to be seen. But here ure the arguments used backslasft by administration advisers: A. The American nixjple are tired (if spending tax money In aid Europe with no end m picht. They are willing to snenri money if It PC- rompli.ihes a definite, set objective: but they are not willing to pour money Into a bottomless pit. D. The Marshall plan 1-ulll up European countries In competition vlth each other. It encouraged just the onpositc of a United States of Europe. Thus, the French steel Industry was rebuilt to compete with the Belgian steel industry and with the steel industry of every other country. There was no pooling of resources or break' Ing down of unhealthy customs harriers. C. Elsenhower has been tryinfi to get North Atlantic pact nations to nool their war industry as well as their armies. Thus, each could make a specific weapon instead of all competinq atjainst each other in making the same weapon. So far hit success has been limited. D. Moscow's btst argument Is that Europe cannot go back to ill old patchwork system of ·small, rival countries and survive. Europeans know that in this »t least the Communists speak the truth. Europeans know this Is true just as Detroit knows it could not survive if it were permitted to sell automobiles in Michigan only; just as Pittsburgh knows it could not survive if Its steel markets were restricted to Pennsylvania. The Communists argue that Europe's only salvation is unity under the Soviet. More advanced West European leaders, such as French Foreign Minister Schurnan and Count Sforza of Italy, argue that to offset this there must be European unity--not under Russia--but in cooperation with England and the U.S.A. Thosfc are the arguments that some administration advisers have put up in backstage discussions. * * * In contrast, hire Is what the British have done to oppose European unity: Divide and rule--Traditional British policy has been to balance the two strongest continental nations against each other--usually France ' against Germany. Inevitably this leads to war. Invasion of the Ruhr--Best illustration of how British aloofness encourages war took place on March 7, 10J8, when Hitler invaded the nuhr. All that day the French cabinet sat. telephoning to London, asking a pledge of Brilish support if the French Army stepped in to block the Nazis. But London refused a commitment, and wilii the vital Iron and coal fields of the Ruhr in Hitler's hands, war then became only a matter of time. After the war. German officers told U.S. PX- amincrs how Hitler had given the Invading Hnhr army two sets of orders--one to advance; the other to retreat In rase of French resistance. Union with France--In June, 1940, \vlicii F.ngland feared for its life and needed even an occupied France as a partner. Churchill ;,cnt an impassioned plea to French Premier Rcynaud: At this most fateful moment in the history of the modern world, the governments of the United Kingdom and the French republic make this declaration of indissoluble union . . . The two governments declare that France and deal Britain shall no longer be two nations, but one Franco-British union . . .." That wns how far Churchill was willing to go lit 1940. Ten years later when the French ' urged, -ivggcd, imnlorcd British cooperation in Ihc Schuinau plan for the cooperative ownership of- that ace-old cause of war--the Ruhr--Britain remained aloof. And last month, when Eisenhower urscd Churchill during their lunch In Paris In bring Britain into a unified European army, the man who nnc« urged complete union with France, refused. That Is why so many Europeans arc watching the Churchill-Truman talks. That is also why so many of them believe there can b« no permanent peace In Europe until Britain dispels the ancient :y a JLU ^.L Time ---- By Jimmy Hado Working on the Railroad myth that the English Channel separates them from Europe and realizes that England is in fact a continental nation. lime Thirty years Ago Today (Fayctlcvillc Daily Democrat, January 7. 1922) Work will be started immediately on West Uickson Street preparatory to nsphaltic paving as a result of authority given the commissioners by the city council last night permitting them to use city funds already made available.

"Mrs. Denton Is no more crip- ed than you are!" she said. Tommy grabbed her by the wrists and forced her to sit down. "Bo careful what you say, Al- mn!" ho said severely. "You're milking a very serious assertion. Tnke It easy now, nnd tell me cx- ictly why you think this." She pulled herself together and lowered her voice.

"But not as bad as what you've been thinking of me!" Tommy stood up and looked at her with a new sort of pain in his eyes. "You've done something to me, Jewels--something I can't del- cribe." "Try to describe it. Tommy." He shook his head distressedly. "I don't believe I'm able to! This --well, this is the first time I've seen clearly the status I've been acquiring In your eyes.

Mr. Churchill, we may recall made it known that he wished to visit the president some consider' able time before there was even a lUt of the subjects that he wished to discuss. This indicates rather clearly that the main purpose ol the meeting is not to ''·transact urgent specific business which could not be done in any other way. Ten years ago in the weeks just after Pearl Harbor, when Mr. Churchill made hii first official visit to Washington, there was tremendoua and urgent business to do which could not be done without a face to face meeting Mtwecn him and the president. The business was to construct the working machinery of an alliance hat was to lead a coalition, and a decide upon the grand strategy of the world war. The position .oday is very different.- What is rrying lo be done is less obvious,] ess spectacular, in a sense more difficult because the need of it is not self-evident. But in the long un it may be no less important ban the business he came to do en years ago. The present business is not on the agenda and it annot be set down in any of- icial language. It is to redress. UmiANN For our own lake* we must wlih to live among equal!, among peoples who trust us but do s'it fear u», who work with us but do not f a w n . upon us. Only equals can really be truited, only governments that speak candidly and do not say what they think we want to hear, what they believe will keep the dollars flowing. There Is no health in satellitism, md even the most ruthlesi imperialism can never trust. the satellite. · · * · We must hope and believe that the visit of Mr. Churchill to Washington will somehow mark :he turning; point upward towards mutuality and away from the drift downward into inequality. The turn will be marked, I feel sure, not by whether Mr. Churchill agrees on this or that, but y the manners and the moods tif he officials of the two countries, and of the press reports which result from their briefings. When after a long absence two old friends meet, having some difficult business to do, what matters most is not how they do the business but whether still they are friends. Nothing that is said or left un- he balance of mutuality within said can" hide the truth about he free world which has been | that. So I think it will be with pset by our economic and mili- ary preponderance. · · * It is easier for an American to ay that than it would be for the itizen of any other country. But n American can say it, knowing lat it is no less a vital interest oi America than it is of Britain and of the Commonwealth, of France and of Europe, that the ereat alliance should not be allowed to degenerate into an American empire surrounded only by satellites and dependencies. Our own ultimate American business is the preservation and development of the freedom of the American people, and if ever we find ourselves the sole masters with no partners who arc equals, the corruption of our liberty-which even now is not uncontami- na fc.1--is certain. the visit of Mr. Churchill. When it is ended, it will be known everywhere whether the enormous preponderance of our material power can be made consistent with a true and equal friendship. Thcjc is, as we know, a growing doubt among our allies as to whether this is possible. What' happens here with Mr. Churchill could 40 much to dispel their doubts, or it could do very much to confirm them. · · * For he is after all the old champion, their cfiamplon and our champion, and it will be an instinctive feeling among great multitudes of people the world over that what he has to give, which is his genius and the steadfastness of his people, is on any decent reckoning the equal to anything he can get in return. Dear Miss Dix: I am a girl of 26, wanting to live again. T w o years ago I married a man who three children. Their mother left him when he wa^ in the Army. I ave cared for the children as best I could but they continually compare me to their nolher. I've tried to teach them manners and help with their ichoolwork but they resist every attempt I make to improve them. This month they came home with six F's among them. The 8-year- old girl strikes at me when I try to make her mind. I love tlieir father very much but these youngsters have me down, and I'm afraid I can't go on much ionger. What can I do? M. R. Annver: A girl who marries a widower end tries to mother his orphaned children has a difficult ob, but the stepmother of youngsters whose own mother is still -ery much around is confronted with an almost impossible task. A woman who has 1 failed in her iob of wife and mother is very reluctant to see another woman step into her shoes and try to make a success of the job. Even .hough she no longer wants her lusband or children, wife No. 1 will do everything in her power .o disrupt the new household her successor tries to establish. Visits with her children are devoted almost entirely to undermining the authority ot the stepmother. What chance has a second wife against odds like this? The only hope you have for maintaining a half-way success- 'ul household is to have your lusband exercise some authority over his own children, which apparently he docs not do at pres- ent. The youngsters, of course, are in a difficult position themselves, as are all children of broken marriages. However, since the first marriage was dissolved and a second one contracted, every effort should bo made by your husband to make some success of, his second matrimonial venture. The children are bound to have divided loyalties, and it is -their father's duty to see that some measure of unity Is nevertheless brought into the household. Your problem is tbe rule-rather than tht exception--in any case where a girl marries a divorced man with children; 'it js one reason why I so vehemently caution against these unions. At best, tbe situation settles dov.'n to a state of armed truce; nothing better can be hoped for. Dear Miss Dix: Recently my niece married and I gave her a sum of money at' a gift. In some manner, she misread the figuie on the check for half the amount 1 gave her, and told her mother and sister she had received the lesser amount. Now they are all, in common parlance, "mad at me." I have always been as generous as my means would allow, and I they hardly ever remember me with a birthday card. J. E. F. Answer: Your relatives are cer- tainlv mercenary to take so petty an attitude over your gift. Even if you had given a smaller amount than your niece actually received, there is no excuse for her family's conduct. Can't you set them straight on the amount of your gift? In any event, since your kindness has been so ungraciously received, you'd be foolish to ' continue your generosity.
