V['c deceive ourselves dangerously If we try to brush off these talking about "ah, 5 i( .French-German reconciliation. In i n :stead of that we have preferred f h . ;to listen lo those Germans ond ·' !those French who--primarily In- ·Heresled in American financial reiilitlcs by , the wicked arrogant Germans again" nnd "ah, the dear but nervous French once again." There Is no mystery about the way the Germans and the Krcnch are ncting, They nre In no need of psychiatrists but only of statesmen, especially Amer- ciin statesmen, who would rather ic rlcht In the years to come (him iiivc it supposed a little while ongcr t h a t they were right last · · » . » : « li. ! opie' it home. .:·· I'' |we were asking them to sign, were fareadlly being scparalcrt from the I j |national sentiment of their own ':·" ,.| Yet.

The flrsl. and the right jtellinj them we very much want- one, is to recognize the basic truth |M to', hear. The. "one thins on which i;oth parliaments arc jwe did not want to hear was really agreed: that the rearma- Jthat these officials, who were incnl of Germany cannot precede '·ayliij'.«uch agreeable thln«s and but' must follow from a political jwcre signing so many of the papers sclllcmcnl. The gist of what IHc Gcrmann did at Bonn the other dny was.lo name Ihc terms which had to be met before they would he w i l l i n g - t o rearm. The slat of the Krcnch posl'tion us It came out in the assembly Is (hat they will not agree to rearm the Germans until there Is a political system which they can rely upon to regulate Ihe German forces'. The French anrt the Germans do not.nxrcc npv/ pn .the terms of a political settlement between them. That bus still to bo worked out by a difficult negotiation. But the Germans and the French are agreed on the fundamental principle--which we abandoned In I960--that a political settlement must.come before German rearmament. That Is the truth which .we shall now Ignore at our peril. Our European policy will run into ever-increasing trouble, the popular resentment against us In Europe will continue to mount', until we have the grace to return lo the fundamental .principle-namely, Hint the two great nation^ cnnnot be "Integrated" in an army u n t i l Ihey are In substantial agreement about their 'vital interests and about their European ainw. German reeohdUatlon. It may not be too late to come back to the main-highway. We must hope that pride of opinion will not cause us lo oppose a serious attempt lo put things back in their right order, which is first the Atlantic guarantee through the N.A.T.O, alliance and its military organization, then Franco- German reconciliation us through Ihc Schuman Plan, and then a European political community under Franco-German leadership. * · ^ * The oilier course is to "keep on with the policy of armaments before political agreement. This will lead, as a matter of fact this is now leading, lo the revival of German national power for the purpose of redressing Germany's grievances and of realizing Germany's national aspirations. This development means the gradual but Inexorable loss of French, British and then American influence over German policy. For the German nationalists will nee that they have nothing to fear from the West. Once they have gollcn from the west all that the west has to give them in the way of sovereign rights and help In ttic restoration of their power, their great un- settled problemn will be In th cast. Jt Is to .the east that the must turn to oncUthe partition to readjust their caslcrn frontiers and lo open up the markets ant resources of Eurasia to German Induslry. The Russians alone can satisfy these needs and ambitions without a ruinous war. On the other hand, the Germans, once hey arc again the.first power on he continent, will have much to iffcr the Ilusslans in return. II is only reasonable lo suppose that both the Germans and the Russians will, when , that -time comes for a showdown, prefer a mutually profitable ' n n d cold- blooded deal to a suicidal war.

Apparently Delbert Bohlander, )2, who has a Pritchett, - Colorado hamlet, hadn't heard of the death of the OPA in 1046 or the establlsmenl of the Office of Price Stabilization. ; The story came to light when Bohlander wrote a letter to OPS headquarters ' here. He said he Manlla-Wj-A Japanese w h o cmc here to lure World War II stragglers out of the jungles today estimated that at least 1,000 Japanese still arc hiding- in the "'hillppincs. Nobuhlko Jim no, a former Japanese Army colonel, flew over Lubang Island, dropped bundles of letters from relatives of slragglers, and by loudspeaker urged surrender. . i fcorne^io, that, however, if we jcontlnu.if to disregard- the plain ,"w«rninjts and,with stubborn pride ' ahead determined not so PtAN TO BUILD ·« Our Mit«rt.L ' ' Ccl Out PilcM.
