For is is now clear enough, I think, that British and American civilian plan ning for Europe has not conform ed with the requirements and the consequences of Allied military strategy. The situation in the lib erated countries is not at all what the civilian agencies assumed it would be when they made their plans and their commitments. * * * More than a year ago, at Cairo and Teheran, the far-reaching de cision was taken to conduct simul taneously the invasion in France, the operations of Nimitz in t h e central Pacific and of MacArthur from New Guinea to the Philip pines. This bold decision to fight two full-scale wars 15,000 miles apart meant that our margin of superiority in each theater, though considerable, was not overwhelm ing. In ships, landing craft, infan. try and artillery, the margin was thin, and we took the risk, what is called the calculated risk, of bidding for a rapid decision simul taneously in both theatres with out concentrating our full force in either. Though we have won great victories both in Europe and in the Pacific, we have missed ob taining the certain and quick de cision which we hoped for. It will always be an interesting question what would have happened if Gen eral Eisenhower had had the ships and the men to make two separate landings in northern Europe in stead of the one landing in Nor mandy. Be that as it may, the basic decision to conduct the two great offensives simultaneously had cer tain other immensely important consequences. It meant that there could be no large British-Ameri can landing in the Balkans. It meant that the Italian campaign could not be concluded. It meant that almost no shipping was avail able to put adequate civilian sup plies in Italy, Greece, Belgium, or France. * * * There is little doubt, I think, that our political strategy failed to take account of the consequences of our military strategy. In Belgium, for example, the root of the trouble, as I understand it, is that the Pierlo government put into fqrce immediately a well meant policy of currency deflation. The policy would have worked if, as was sup posed when it was formed in Lon don, it had been possible to import into Belgium the civilian supplies which were needed, which would have counteracted the black mar kets that had developed under the German occupation. But for lack of shipping and of ports and of railways it was not possible to bring in the imports. So when the Belgian government deflated the currency nevertheless, the effect was to cause the peas ants to hoard their produce and in general to cause an economic paralysis. For the time to deflate is when larders are being filled, not when they are empty. The Bel gian fiscal policy was orthodox and “sound’’ but the economic sit uation was so abnormal that an orthodox policy was the wrong pol icy. In Greece we find the same es sential difficulty, namely the per sistence in a policy which might have worked if a large Allied ar my had gone into Greece to fight the Germans, bringing with them adequate supplies for the civilians. Under these conditions the Greek coalition government might have held together, and the difficult problem of fusing the forces of the resistance with the legitimate gov ernment might have been manag ed. But what happened was that the Germans evacuated Greece, and a mere handful of British troops entered Greece bringing with them a government which had little authority of its own and no certain means of furnishing rapid and sufficient economic re lief to the people of Greece. Under these conditions the cen ter of gravity in the Greek gov ernment had to be the armed for ces of the resistance, numbering it is said some 40,000 men. The center of gravity could not be the little British army and the rem nants of the Greek army from ov erseas. Much of what happened in Athens during the past ten days is obscure, and we must not judge hastily. But it does seem fairly clear that the advice of the Eritish and the Greeks on the spot was ov erruled from London, and that as a result the British are fighting Greeks to prop up a Greek gov ernment which was formed in ex ile when the prospect was very different, which tried to resign when it got to Athens but was not allowed to resign. • • * The same fundamental condi tions of the war dominate Italy. Only the weakest part of Italy is liberated and that part has been badly devastated by the fighting and is paralyzed by the needs of the armies; the Allies have been unable to find the shipping to bring in adequate supplies for the civi lians. Tlie requirements of the war elsewhere are the reason why no Italian policy can work satisfac torily. They are the reason why the only Italian policy that can work at all is one in which Italians are1 allowed to feel, are made to feel, that they share the responsi bility. For since the Allies have not the military force to drive the Germans quickly out of the whole of Italy, nor the material means to rehabilitate Italy quickly, they cannot afford to act as if they wanted to take upon themselves the whole responsibility for gov erning Italy. They do this whep they presume to say who, amon| anti-Fascist Italians, may enter the Italian government. * * * The crisis in the liberated coun tries is due to the fact that civilian plans have been incompatible with the military situation. The crisis can be resolved only by a revision of policy which will make oUr mil iary and political actions consist ent with one another. This is what we are now going to have to do. It will take a great deal of hard thinking to do it.

Fang Hsien-chueh, comman der of the Chinese 10th Army, ac cused the Japanese today of ruth lessly slaughtering several thou sand Chinese prisoners after the fall of Hengyang and personally voiced his shame over failing to hold the city or take his own life following his defeat. Fang, who on August 8 sent a message to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek vowing determination to die fighting for the Hunan pro vince city, told interviewers he felt ashamed coming to Chung king without victory and without attaining a “state of benevolence.” He explained that when Hengy ang was about to fall after a stub born defense of 47 days he want ed to kill himself with a swcrd giv en him by the generalissimo but that his staff officers had dissuad ed him. The general, over whose capture the Japanese made much ado, de clared that when the city fell tha invaders ignored his appeals to abide by international law, and murdered Chinese prisoners. Fang said the Japanese impris oned him in the Catholic church at Hengyang. They repeatedly at tempted persuade him to ac cept a high position in the Chin ese puppet army but he refused. When enemy guards became less attentive one of his men escaped and succeeded in contacting offi cers of the 10th Army who had eluded capture. With the aid of a guerrilla chieftain they planned Fang’s escape. On the night of November 19. Fang disguised himself, climbed over the high church wall, walked to the west of the city and met a guerrilla detachment which escort ed him into Cihkiang in western Hunan after a march of 80 day* and nights. From there he was flown to Chungking Fang said. _ CIO MOBILIZES DETROIT UNITS IN WARD STRIKES DETROIT, Dec. 18.— UH —The CIO marshalled all its Detroit unions tonight to support the strike of its United Retail.

The Office of Price Administra tion, announcing this today, said the base period was being chang ed because these packers were en couraged to produce up to capa city this year and as a result invested in additional equipment. Under these conditions a 1942 base would not be fair, OPA said. Industrial users are those who use a rationed food, such as fruit, to produce a point-free product, such as baby food. The number of these packers was increased con siderably when many processed foods were removed from ration ing last September.
