He ut back and (lowered. * In some* ways you couldn't blame Wllion foi saying nothing. The cabinet meeting war short, ·weet and social, with no Important problem; dlscusiod and the president dropping not a word about hli political plans. Alter the meetlnf, the big defense mobttUer went up to the president and talked privately. It was obvious from the look on Charley's face that the two men were near the breaking point. That same afternoon, however, they held one final session it the White House, this time with Economic Stabilizer Roger Putnam and Price Stabiliser Ellis Amall present. Technically, under Wilson, Putnam and Arnall differed'vigor: oualy with him over Increasing steel prices, and the final White House session was to let President Truman make the last decision. * * w The Issue was quite simple and the conferees got down to It quickly. Putnam, a New England manufacturer, and Amall, former governor of Georgia, claimed the steel industry was making huge exteas profits, could aflord to deduct the proposed wage boost out of profits. Wilson, however, claimed the M-cents-an- hour wage increase recommended by the Wage Stabilisation Board must be offset by Increasing the price of steel. Me alao claimed President Truman had gone back on a previous agreement ao this point made at Key West. . "If your reasoning is correct,- Price Ad- minlftrator Arnall told Wilson, "you might as well abolish my Office of Price Stabilisation end nuke It an appendage of the Wage Stabili- sation Board. Then every time you gave a wage boost, you would give a price boost. However, that's not stopping Inflation. That's wrecking things." "The Wage StabUiiatlcc Board has already wrecked things," countered WUse*. "Not unless we grant a price increase," shot beck his subordinate, Price Administrator Arnall. "Well, we cant let Industry and labor bull, doae us with the threat of · strike," replied the ex-governor of Georgia. "If, every time there's ·a strike threat, we grant a price increase, every group In the country Is going to threaten a strike. You cant stop Inflation by retreating." economic Stabiliser Putnam backed Arnall up. And after listening carefully, so did' the president. The meeting adjourned with the understanding that the nation would have to risk a steel strike rather than grant any price I n c r e a s e -- o^her than about $1,50 a ton Under the Capeha'rt amendment. Detente Moblllier Wilton thereupon went back to his office end wrote out his resignation. * * * On the day President Truman moved tack fat* e completely rebuilt White House. Westbrook Pegler entered a Boston hospital. Maybe the shock was too great. Pegler had argued that the White House "ought to be,destroyed. It Is symbolic of .royalty and privilege and of the verminous infestation of the American government by traitors, vile opportunists peddling Imperial favor-and trimming suckers." . . .

He dMnt lose any dig* nn In that get-tat, though It'i i costume Ht wnleh many men took He waited, a surprised look on his' face, until I' had closed the door. Then he asked, In a quick low voice: " A n y t h i n g wrong, Orth?." "N-no," I said hesitantly. "But I'm afraid we've got to have another talk. You'll remember that you okayed an investigation I wanted to make? Well, .it's been made. And the results dent make very pleasant tailing." He closed hli book, deliberately. "I wouldn't have expected pleasantness. Well, sit down and let's have it", I drew a stralghtbacked chair close tp him, so that I could keep my voice down. "First," t began, "I might as well say that I'm W per cent sure of who killed Ames Warburton and how it was done." Cravath was, not the. man'to brook preambles. He Jerked erect Well, who?" he demanded lav patiently. . · "But there's one per cent «t doubt in my mind. So I have to ask you a p r e t t y embarrassing question. You wont like H." He was staring at me, blue eyes bulging. "Well, ask It man." "Okay," I said, and let him have it. "Mr. Cravath, did you fake two attempts on your own life and then kill A m e s Warburton because he discovered .that you'd taken SO thousand In bonds from your office safe?" He came out of his chair tike a bull from the torll. "Why--why, y-you . . ." The spluttering syllables fell over themaelvei and stopped, because Mantan Cravat* was essentially srnnhleas. But I got my answer. To tell the truth, I was a tittle afraid ot that answer aa It came. I thought that Cravath might take a swing at me. "Look hare,* ha reared. 'An you eraay?

"I will answer you and I will fire you. No, I dMnt kill Ames. Any more than I took those bonds." I managed to stop hl(n by waving both hands furiously. "Ill apologise right new, Mr. Cravath," I said: "But I had to ask that question. Because, frank? ly, you cotOd have done it--aa wejl,. perhaps even better,. than anyone else.

Ma started far OH ·7 WALm UrTMAM* At to hew i change ta the ad ·UstotraUon M likely to affect farelg* policy, the tatt anyone can do Is to theorize and keep in open mind. My awn theory, is ol ir, Is that very important Cheng* 1» ow foreign policy are In the miking, But the** changes will, i believe, be due to developments abroad, particularly In Europe but very ereWWy also in the Far East There Is no evidence pew of any popular movement of sufficient force to Insist upon · radical change to eur present mUl- tery and political commitments Ewtpt on the, highly unlikely assumption that Senator Taft fan be nominated ant! elected, there Is pot likely to be any important change In the Intentions and the principles of our foreign policy Ntverthelesi events will, ] bellevf, compel a re-examination and important modifications In the work- tan plans of our foreign policy. · · · Our German policy in particular Is heading right Into a collision with the tacts of life--with German nationalism arid with the Soviet government's ability to do business with German nationalism. Our policy has been built upon the notion that a provincial -German government, formed , under our occupation and subsidized and guided by thf official! of the occupation, could )tad the whole German nation into I military alliance with the West. So confident were the architects of this extraordinary policy that the German nation was over, whehiilngly with them that they offered to stake everything on the outcome of a free election in all of Germany. They felt certain that the Soviet government, being totalitarian and despotic, would never agree to free german elections unless compelled to do so; they believed also that If by chance the Soviet government were compelled to agree to tree elections, this would be a moral and spiritual victory for the democratic West because the German Communist party would surely be beaten In a free election. i · · · The crisis Into which. we are now heading turns upon the grown Ing probability that the Soviet government he* deckled to agree to, Indeed Insist upon, tree elections In ell «f Germany. That will not mean that the members of the Politburo have bfjcome Jackson* an Democrats but only that they lave come to the conclusion that an all-German government will be highly profitable to the Soviet Union. The Soviet propaganda to Germany and to the satellites is now extremely revealing. On March IB, for example, the Czech Home Service broadcasting from Prague laid that "the unification of Ger- nany wfll end Vntttd States In- fluenee to Western Oarmanjr wjiteh, by fupporttof re elements, l« (iMtrtoi toe * Weit German publl* Translated evt of ibe toofuwt tf propaganda, what this seyf sii (1)) united Mat« teflueooe to Wait Germany is based on the Adenauer governmfnt; (J) the : predominantly on Ox Catbolk and eontervitiv* voten of the" Rhlnelmit and ot Bavuia; (S) ' these voters are a minority in' a united Germany where there is a ' majority which is Protestant and/or Saclallst; (4) therefore an til-German election will |q)ock fut the political foundations .of United States Influence in Germany. . . . .

Soviet government is. getting : ready to spring the trap which, we, so unwisely, so thoughtlessly, so brashly, have been setting up. . There are strong hints that the., Soviet government may propose that the all-derman elections be .. held under the electoral laws which prevailed In the pre-Hitjer Weimar Republic-- that the ejections be conducted' by; Germans, supervised by neotrals r and guaranteed by the four Powers," The precise details 'are not yeJ;Cl*erly known but the whole moveiittnt of the Soviet propaganda to Germany and to th"? rest : dt Europe appears to be directed toward forcing an agreement to hold the elections.

There is almost no likelihood, none at all that prudent stateamen could rely upon, that our present German . policy could survive the. tree all- . lenhan elections to which we are sommitted. The ilppwop'wtt ·can- no doubt be postponed for a white, and it Is essential that It should be so that we may catch eur breath and have time to reflect."' But within the structure of our present German policy the show- lown cannot be avoided; · · a · · - - .For the forces of German nationalism and of the Soviet power Europe are now in motion and are becoming enmeshed. They are much too strong to' permit any ' prolonged 'and indefinite postponement of the showdown over American policy in Cat many.
