- By WALTER LIPPMANN --
Bricks Without Straw
It is necessary to understand
military decisions which were tak
en secretly and long ago if we
are to begin to understand the dif
ficulties in liberated Europe, and
to judge truly Allied policy with
a view to reshaping it. 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
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
* * *
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
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
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, who on August 8 sent a

die fighting for the Hunan pro

felt ashamed coming to Chung
king without victory and without

the Japanese made much ado, de

Fang said the Japanese impris

Hengyang. They repeatedly at
tempted persuade him to ac

When enemy guards became less

Ur A Increases Rationed
Foods To Packing Firms
WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. — OP) —
Next year’s allotments of ration
ed food to packers who are new
“industrial users” will be based
on use this year, rather than 1942.
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.
