Wade .Tones THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON (Drew Pearson's continuing columns on Eisenhower's work in Europe and the Soviet drive to undercut European defense today takes the form of a letter to Mri. George L. Arnold of Los Angeles.) Paris, France April 21, 1852 Dear Daughter: 1 have been fitting in my hotel room looking down it the park next to the Champs Elysees watching French children pl«y and thinking of the many times when I have been in Paris before. The children are swinging on swings, riding on a merry-go-round, roller-skating, or sitting on bored and dejected donkeys which walk the length of the park and back for 10 francs per promenade. It reminds me of the time when you »nd Tyler were.very small and we visited Paris. And it also reminds me of other trips when I was a lot younger and more optimistic about the pence ·of the world; The first lime I came to Paris was after a great war had been fought which we thought wa$ to free the world, when Woodrow Wilson's vibrtnt doctrine still rang in people's'ears and they'were convinced that peace could be wth Ui permanently. The next time 1 came to Paris was in 1927, . en route to the Geneva naval conference which w»s to carry out the disarmament goals of that peace. Your mother was with me then and we . - left you behind--so small you didn't recognize me when 1 returned. But at Geneva, Bethlehem Steel, Newport News Ship and other shlpbulldr ing companies had hired a lobbyist to upset the treaty--because they wanted to build warships. And because the French,.Italians and Japanese were also not enthusiastic, he succeeded. : , ycir I came back to Paris with Frank B. Kellogg, who, as secretary of state, had negotiated a treaty to outlaw war. I watched the ceremony of the signing of the Kcllogg- Brland pact and got a great thrill--as did much of the world--over the idea that at long last It was now illegal to make war. * * * . . My next trip to Paris was during the Lon- dpn naval conference in 1930--an attempt by a most high-minded secretary of state, Henry L. Stimson, to curtail the weapons of war. But he .wai.not even able to persuade his isolationist chief in the White House--Herbert Hoover- that we should consult with other nations in cat? war threatened. Thai conference was a tragic failure. And with that failure it seemed to me the world ·tarted downhill again--toward war. War docs not start easily or quickly. The seeds are planted long In advance. They do not sprout suddenly-- · at when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939. They had b«tn planted perhaps eight or nine years bcfcre' that Invasion. And' by (he next time I canje to Paris they had definitely begun to aproiit. '.That was Christmas of 1936. You were with me then. But you didn't know, any more than thf children playing in the park below my hotel window today know, that the seeds of war were all«dy planted. _ A aure and certain sign that they were planted had conic In March 193(1, when Hitler's ti-oops marcljW into the Huhr and Rhlncland. With that vlf»l. Murce of iron and steel. Hitler had the (pols of wlr In his hands, and H was only a matter of time bdfore hostilities started. Actually the seeds of war had sprouted well before this. They had been nurtured In the soil . of depression, bank failures, unemployment, hopelessness. The seeds were really planted when American investors stopped buying European, bondi, thereby .onding' the .American subtldy which kept Europe prosperous under Harding and Coolldge and which--though paid ;:,in a. different fprm through the Marshall Plan-- ·Ian has kept Europe prosperous under Truman. When people lose hope -they turn 16 war. And'the great depression from 1032 to 1939 had made Europe lose hope. * * * It seems that most of my trips to Paris have been connected somehow or other with milestones wn the road to or from peace. My next trip was for the Paris peace conference in 1946, when Americans generally had 'great hope for peace--though Europe was skeptical. That was when Jimmie Byrnes gradually saw hope fade --dashed on the rock of Husslsn recalcitrance That was also when Europe again began to lose hope. And when I visited Paris one year later with the Friendship. Train, Europe wns starving, ships were tied up by mutinous stevedores, railroads were on strike, Communism was on the march, and I have never seen Paris so woeful and discouraged. · · · The Marshall Plan came after that and, despite some of its faults, It wrought miracles: Its drive in the right direction Is being continued by Eisenhower and the North Atlantic Pact. As · a result, there Is a note of hope today in Paris But, underneath that hope, there Is danger. Eisenhower's departure is one danger! Inflation and soaring prices are another. Resentment against America for forcing rearmament is another. Reversing the disarmament policies of Frank Kellogg and Henry L. Stimson, we now · tell Europe their only hope is to rearm; Naturally, people don't take this reversal happily-especially whan it means higher taxes and higher prices. * * * But Ihe greatest danger In Europe today Is the intense, extremely skillful'propaganda of Soviet Russia against the North Atlantic iiriny-- especially against the dread idea of France und They'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo wwtox orns /MORE OFFERS HBt LIKE THE BOSS ID I PROMISED S ftOOUX'T BRWrH« THIS TO A UVWS StXlL- TEU. wo auy*~wess U«C* WITH CHYl aWRM.

The Kremlin sees this, as many European.-, do not see it, as the first step toward European unity. And the Kremlin knows that European unity means prosperity, strength, and hope. In that Wnd of soil, also, the seeds of war do not grow. .'. . · · . ; That's why I think the next few months-during our elections--are so crucial. One more push can put across the unified European army --and, with it, European cooperation. But any number of things can stop it--the wrong' president of the U.S.A., more harmful speeches like Tom Connally's, a sudden curtailment of American .budgets for European defense, bickering among our allies, or the continued success of Soviet propaganda. That's why I look down at the French kids playing in the park and wonder whether in 10 or 15 years they will still be enjoying life or marching off to war. If they march off to war, my grandsons also, march off to war, arid, as General Elsenhower told me thf other day, so will his. grandsons. That's why the next 'six months are so all-Important. That's why it's going to take a lot of understanding and patience by the American, people plus a lot of understanding, and patience by our allies irrEurope to ' achieve the great goal that seems almost within our grasp.

Today, Vittorio, an undersized little Sicilian, is a movie star, the adopted son of a British noblewoman and heralded--on the strength of a tingle film--as one of the best since Jackie Coogan in "The Kid." Americans, so far, haven't had much chance to see Vittorio in action, for the Italian-made film --Paul Galileo's '-'Never Take No For an Answer!'--is just beginning to make the rounds of the smaller independent movie houses in the larger cities.

Do you think it is fair for ler to ask them out and leava me home? i have very high blood Tessure and the doctor says I houldn't stay alone. Of course, I have brothers and sisters, and I till go to busliiess, although my daughter would like .m'e to; stay home.

' s I see your situation, it is quite pleasant on? and. you have hqth- ng whatever to complain about, "our daughter ahd'soh-ih-law are. evoted to you, you' have".a v nke ; omc, and the comfortable assur- nce that your beloved child is appily married. «nr Condition Putzling I am a little puzzled by the fact hat your high blood pressure does ·jot prevent you from working, 3ut does make it necessary for ou to have someone with you al- vays. The facts don't jibe. High lood pressure is no reason for nvalidhood. A frank discussion ith your doctor will'a'liqy .'most f the fears concerning this con- ition. ' . Your daughter is certainly en- itled to an evening out with her usband alone. To try to monopo- ze all her time to the complete xclusion of her husband would very selfish and inconsiderate of you. Since you have a job, brothers and sister?, you surely tave no need ci'thef to tag along with the youn? folks or sit Lome by yourself and mope. You know othvr people with whom you can visit, you have other friends wAo will go to a moMe with you. Maki a life of your own! You have an exceptionally oi voted daughter and a fine son- in-law. Be grateful for them. When they go out for QrTevening, smile cheerfully and wish them a good time--and mean it! If you must spend the evening alone, surely you're not completely devoid of all means of self-amusement. With book's, magazines, radio, television, mending, you have a good assortment of relaxing aids. Make : use.?f them! Un. (Joubtedly you.will have to give up your position-eventually. Build up as many inner reifources as you can against that day. When you're home with your daughter all day, you surely don't want to turn into si whining, complaining creature. Whatever you d"yV Marion, don't sink into thf abyss pf self-pity. No human emotion Is so wasteful. H saps all your energy and in return, gives a full measure of discontent and unhappiness.
