Roosevelt’s War Message. MONDAY. JUNE 25, 1945. TOP OF THE MORNING Waiting, watching eagerly For iittle letters post-marked “Free” That flutter in like falling leaves On winds borne home from over seas. Often so short—just a line to say: “I'm well, and I think it will rain today!” Or perhaps they will mention a town not far From another town where they actually are. Then back to the weather, a word about chow, And likely as not, “That's all for right now!” But we read and re-read them, thrilling to see Each little letter post-marked “Free". From “Pillar to Post” -V-r The New Food Bill The drastic changes in the food administra tion approved by the House of Representatives after a day of hectic debate, and particularly by the 356 to 12 vote by which they were authorized, culminates the national dissatisfac tion with the Office of Price Administration ar.d the bungling of the food program it has been guilty of since the office was set up. It is not known at this time that all the changes will be enforceable or benign, but neither have the practices of the OPA, and they certainly cannot be worse. Altnough the OPA is given another year of life, it is shorn of its despotic authority, in which it has gone contrary to the nation’s cherished democratic principles and throttled pnvate enterprise, besides creating a general food shortage which, has imposed unnecessary bu dens and unwarranted skimping on Ameri can households and encouraged the black market. Kill n sentative Andersen’s provision that the Secre tary ot Agriculture s approval will be required on all government food orders; the Patman pro', ision which lifts the oppressive restric tions on independent processors provided sani tary conditions at plants is satisfactory to the Secretary of Agriculture; the Dickson provi sion that individuals may sue out injunctions against OPA regulations and enjoy the right to appeal OPA orders in federal courts. It also provides for a profit margin for meat processors. The chief complaint against the Office of Price Administration has been its dictatorial policies. The people have justly held that its authoritarian practices have been so closely allied with those of totalitarian states, notably Germany and Italy under the dictators, that the line ot demarkation was imaginary; that while we were fighting to overthrow totalitar ianism abroad we we^e being subjected to its evils at home. The bill approved by the House at least overcomes many of the practices most severely criticized. As House and Senate are broadly in agree ment on the principal provisions of the bill it is to be expected few readjustments will be made in conference. _v_ No Politics, Please A popular pastime in these first days of his return home is to suggest a job for General Eisenhower. To make him director general of the new world security league, as noted in these columns on Saturday, would be a fitting reward for his war services and in keeping with his talents. But all that is definitely k: own Oi his future is that he has been named h ad of the American occupation forces in Germany. However, being of sound body and in his right mind. General Eisenhower has taken the political bull by the horns and squelched any incipient movement to boom him for President or any other political office. By making the announcement that he is not a candidate nor inclined to become one, he has saved himsell a lot oi trouble. It will De remembered the embarrassment and annoyance imposed on General Pershing, after the former World war, by ardent ad mirers who started ‘'Pershing for President” clubs all over the country, and more recently the movement to draft General MacArthur for republican candidate for the presidency while be was doing a tremendous job in the war against the Japanese. It may be said that the friends of General Eisenhower can do him no greater service or sho ’ their friendship to better advantage than by refraining from activities in his case that embarrassed General Pershing and General MacArthur. 4 The New League When World War 1 ended and the leading nati ns gathered around the peace table a League of Nations was born. Although it lin gered on tor years with waning strength, its de-th sentence was uttered at its encouchment. It nas been claimed that failure of the Unit d States to become a member of the League was the chief cause of its failure. This is true only to a limited extent. The principal reason was that the framers of the League Covenant looked upon the project as the first step toward Utopia. Counting on per petual good will among the powers, the kind of teeth and jaws that could have made it an effective instrument for lasting peace were left out. The League of Nations was a noble adven ture in idealism, but because it ignored the human element it was predestined to what President Cleveland long ago described as •‘innocuous desuitude” With the lessons learned from the ill-fated League before them, delegates attending the United Nations .Security Conference now clos ing at San Francisco, after weeks of bickering and disagreements which at times threatened disruption, have produced a Constitution which piovides not only a program for the mainte nance of peape hut for its inforcement as l well. It is not a particularly strong Constitution. Its faults are many, as any document pro duced by mortals gathered from the far corners of the world and holding diverse views, is bound to be. But in one particular it holds out hope that peace may be maintained, anc that is an achievement well worth the time and controversy involved in its promul gation. There is to be a continuously - functioning Stcurity Council of eleven members whose “primary responsibility (is) for the main tenance of international peace and security.” Any nation may appeal to the council for settlement of a dispute. This would be at tempted first through peaceful methods. Then, if necessary, through diplomatic, economic or military pressure. In sharp contrast with the League of Na tions, which lacked courage to establish sanc tions against Italy when Mussolini attacked Ethiopia, the settlement of future disagree ments between nations is not to be confined to persuasion alone, or even to economic blockade. “Military pressure” is to be used, ar.d not only among minor or non-member nations, but among the top members of the Security Council. If the Constitution is ob st.ved none of the great powers would dare to rattle the saber in another’s face. There is widespread belief that this time the United States Senate will ratify the Con stitution, possibly not before President Tru man’s departure for the Big Three session at Potsdam, but ultimately, when the members have made their oratorical flourish. The Amer ican people, whose stewards the senators are, want their nation to be a party to the new oignization. They have found the price of isolation too high. For this reason it is fair to think the Constitution will eventually receive their blessing. -V_ Russia In The Pacific General George C. Marshall, U. S. Chief of Stafi, tells the House Appropriations Commit tee that the great imponderable of the moment in the Pacific is whether Russia will join the attack. It is obvious that with Russia striking from the north and America, with her able Allies, pour ding Japan’s home islands and forces and industries in China and Manchukuo with ever increasing fire power, the war in the Orient can be brought to a successful termination much quicker than it the entire job is left to the combined naval, air and land forces of the United States and Britain. In the interest of humanity and the saving of lives it is argued that Russia’s help now woulu be militarily invaluable. But suppose Russia decides to keep out? Japan will be defeated anyway, if Russia con tinues to immobilize the vast Japanese armies now in northern China and Manchukuo. Tokyo dare not withdraw these armies to hei; in the defense of Japan and stave off de feat to the southward. Inevitably, if Tokyo should do so, the Russian armies in Siberia, well trained and fully equipped as they are, would move in to settle an old score against Japan and simply occupy the territory desert ed by the Japanese. It would mean a bloodless conquest of Ja pan’s puppet state. In her present frame of mind, Japan is not liable to offer Manchukuo to the Russians on a platter, as it were. -V Coast Guard Award When the attack on Pearl Harbor was but thirteen days past, the Cape Fear division of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, composed of Wil mington and Wrightsville Beach volunteers was in action—the first unit in the entire Sixth Neva. District. Only recently it was placed on standby duty. Between the time of its organization and the end of the Battle of the Atlantic the Auxiliary was on duty twenty-four hours a day, yeat in and year out, in all kinds of weather, pe troling the coart and inlets against the ap proach of enemy submarines, making rescues, and performing neroic service at beach fires. Wilmington and Wrightsville business men gave freely of their time in the interest of se curity and area safety. Now the Auxiliary is to receive the Coast Guard Security Shield oi Honor. The ceremony, to be held at the Hanson Lodge, in Brunswick county, on Tues day evening, is a fitting climax to the Auxil iary’s outstanding war service. Incidentally, Hanson Lodge is the country home of Louis Hanson, a charter member of the local division and just oeiore uemg uansierrea to Charleston as director of the Coast Guard Auxiliary in the Sixth Naval district was elect ed head oi the Auxiliary here. Captain M. J. Ryan of the Sixth district Coast Guard, is to make the award. The occasion is the sixth anniversary of the unit’s organization. -V Study And Planning By ARTHUR KNOCK WASHINGTON, — Congress is often repre sented as populated largely by handshaking politicians with only a superficial knowledge of the problems on which it must legislate. That was the atittude of the New Deal ex ecutive assistants during a large part of the previous Administration. On this concept they brought legislative drafts to the Capitol for which they asked passage without material change, and to get the necessary votes they were disposed to use patronage and other strictly political pressures as the arguments Co.-gress could best comprehend. There are members of Congress who fit this concept. But in far greater numbers are se rious, hard-working men and women—quite as capable of understanding these problems as executive officials—who have insisted on mak ing original investigations. These legislators, overshadowed for many years of the last Ad ministration, have been swiftly coming to the fore during more recent years; and now mem bers of both House and Senate recognize that they, too, have experts on all the issues that confront government. The Republicans have organized study groups which have made sug gestions that in some instances have bettered those produced by the Executive. Individual Representatives have gained recognition as authorities on such problems as China (Repre sentative Judd), monetary policy (ex-Repre sentative Dewey), intragovernmental pro cedure (Representative Kefauver), economy and efficiency (Senator Byrd), and there are many otners. An example of this intellectual emergency of Congress was provided today when Senators Hatch, Ball and Burton—one Democrat and two Republicans—brought forth a proposed la bor policy for the Government, which has been extemporizing in this field for many years. And their preparation of the bill they introduced today is typical of the best tradi tions of planning. They formed a volunteer committee of thir teen persons headed by Donald R. Richberg, himself an expert in labor relations and the author of numerous labor statutes, including the Railway Labor Act, which is the best product of its kind. His colleagues were also men of the same experience, and with the bill’s sponsors they held many conferences until they had worked out the projected legis lation. The task occupied many months and, fo a miracle, was approached from the view point of the public interest instead of those of labor and management specifically. Par tisans of these groups will be given every opportunity to express their opinion of the -bill an make suggestions during hearings which will be an adequate forum for all qualified witnesses. But they were not included in the craiung committee. This is in striking contrast to the methods of preparation of the Wagner Act (which oper ates unilaterally and the compulsions of which are directed entirely to management) and of most of the other labor relations laws in recent times. It is also in contrast to the background of measures written in a spirit of vexation and reprisal such as the Smith-Connally law— the consequence of great provocations from labor and a labor-swayed Executive, but as full of faults as of remedies. What moved these Senators to their careful study was a deep understanding of the post war problem .that is posed—for returning vet erans, among others—by the unsettled indus trial labor relations that now exist in the United States, and comprehension of the necessity to give these a sound foundation. The Senators and their committee examined the causes carefully and then set out to devise solutions. They did not achieve their goal of putting all the Federal labor agencies under one tent; they cannot by legislation weld at one. the split in the ranks of organized labor which is the source of many strikes and other disputes; and CIO and AFL spokesmen will pro’ bly unite to oppose some of the soundest provisions in the Bill. But the three Senators hav made an excellent beginning; they have applied the materials for an informed national de’ ite from which great improvement could emerge, and they have demonstrated again that thinking and planning are not outside the capacities of Congress Labor and management were not asked to assis' in the drafting of this legislation. But, as Senator Rail pointed out in his explanatory speech today, the convictions which animated the study and took form in the product were the result of many discussions with members of both groups. Employers told him that, un less the unilateral compulsions of the Wagner Act e fairly spread (an equitable adjustment which its author has never really tried to make), and unless there is clear Govern ment policy, small business will find it too risky to attempt expansion in the reconversion period. And they might also have cited such Supreme Court decisions as in the Hutcheson case. Spokesmen of labor told him of their fear that management may repeat its post-war ef fort after 1920 to destroy their unions and to amend or repeal existing laws, not to restore a fair balance between employer and employe but to remove merited and necessary protec tion. to labor that are furnished by these laws There is some basis for the apprehensions The answer is to eliminate them by legislating u labor policy based on equal justice for both groups but with the public interest paramount That is the objective of this bill, and the sponsors have not lost sight of it in.any section —New York Times -V EDITORIAL COMMENT AGAINST FEDERAL CONTROL The most important question the people of America wilJ soon be deciding will be whether to let government grow beyond their power to curb it, in return for alleged benefits. The decision surrounding proposed Federal control of medicine is a phase of the larger question It is interesting to note what insurance com missioners think of compulsory medical care as contrasted to voluntary programs. G. L. Neel, Insurance Commissioner of Pennsyl vania. declares: “The unquestioned preference for voluntary action, for the continuance of only those laws and regulations which permit of the use of individual initiative, is so strong among directors, superintendents and com missioners of insurance as to be unanimous.” The worst danger is that the people will lei government grow beyond their control before they fully recognize what is happening.— Watertown (S.

I CIANO’S DIARY Duce Desperately Tries Blackmail But Adolf Hitler Balks In Berlin (Copyright, 1**45, for the Star-News and The Chicago Daily News. Inc. All rights reserved for all countries, including right of translation.) Aug. 19—Sept. 3, 1939. Mussolini made a last effort to blackmail the Germans for 17,000, 000 tons of military supplies as the price for entering a war he knew he couldn't fight, it is disclosed in the diary of Count Ciano, his son in-law. for the closing days of Au gust, 1939. For a time II Duce aspired to the mantle of peacemaker, but he wore it poorly and cynically. As hostili ties approached, he began to hope the war would be “long, hard and bloody” for everybody but the Italians. Ciano ran up bankrupt Italy’s telephone bill with frantic long-distance calls. II Duce alternately was lion and lamb. His< advisers were divided. One even suggested war would be popular with the Italian women be cause they would be rid of their husbands and draw six lira a day in addition. Ciano went t0 Tirana, Albania, Aug. 19 and then to Valona, but an urgent telegram summoned him back to Rome Aug. 20. He wrote: AUG. 20—“In my absence II Duce has done an about-face. He wants to support Germany in the conflict, which is now close at hand . . . Conference between Mussolini, Attolico (ambassador to Berlin), and myself. This is the substance: It is too late already to go back on the Germans. The press of the whole world would say that Italy is cowardly, that it is not prepared, and that it had withdrawn in the face of the threat of war.” PLEADS WITH DUCE TO RENOUNCE ALLIANCE AUG. 21—"Today I’ve spoken clearly. ‘Duce. you must not do it . . .At Salzburg I found my self face to face with an ulti matum. Not we, but the Germans have betrayed the alliance . . . Tear up the pact. Throw it in Hitler's face and Europe will rec ognize in you the natural leader of the anti-German crusade. Do you want me to go to Salzburg? Very well. I shall go and shall speak to the Germans as they should be spoken to. Hitler will not make me put aside my ciga rette as he did Schuschnigg (for mer Austrian premier.)’ * * * "He was very much impressed and approved my suggestion to ask Von Ribbentrop to come to the Brenner Pass . . . We telephoned Von Ribbentrop, who was un available. Finally, at 5:30 p. m., I speak to him. He says that he cannot give me an answer because ■he is waiting for an important message from Moscow and will telephone me during (he evening’.” AUG. 22—“At 10:30 last night a scene occurred. Von Ribben trop phoned that he would rather see me at Innsbruck than at the frontier because he was to leave later for Moscow, to sign a political agreement . . . (TTic German-Russian non-ag gression pact.) The Germans have struck a master blow. All Europe is upset ... We must wait and be ready ourselves to gain something in Croatia and Dalmatia . . , The rep resentatives of the democratic countries are inclined to under rate the incident.” AUG. 23—‘‘The day is charged and threatening . . . France and England let it be known they will intervene ... II Duce authorized me to present to Percy Loraine (British ambassador) a solution based on the preliminary return of Danzig to the Reich, after which there would be negotiations and a general peace conference . . . Percy Loraine fainted, or al most fainted in my arms. He re tired to the toilet. # * * “Francois-Poncet (French am bassador), discouraged and pessi mistic, repeats that France will fight . . . Weizsaecker (Nazi sec retary of state for foreign affairs) telephones from the Berghof to relay Hitler’s harsh reply to the British ambassador. Another hope is gone . . . “II Duce is warlike tonight. ... He has received Pariani (Italian chief of staff) who gave him good news of the army’s condition. Pariani is a traitor and a liar.’’ “Phillips (U. S. ambassador) brings a long message from Roose velt for the King. It doesn’t seem to make much sense.” Editor’s note: This refers to a message from President Roosevelt appealing to the I'alians to try to stop war in Europe. “The un heard voices of countless millions of human beings ask-that they, shall not be vainly sacrificed again,” Mr Roosevelt said. KING VICTOR AWARE OF ITALY’S WEAKNESS AUG. 24—“I went to Sant’ Anna di Valdieri to confer with the King ... In his judgment we are absolutely in no condi’ion to wage war. The army is in a ‘pitiful’ state . . . Even the defense of our frontier is insufficient ... He is convinced the French can pierce it with ease. The officers of the Italian army are of poor quality and our equipment is old and ob solete . . . Six months of neutrali ty will give us greater strength. “In the event of conflict, he hopes that II Duce will give the Prince of Piedmont (King Victor’s son. Prince Humbert! a command. ‘Those two 1m be lies from Bergamo and from Pistoria (the King’s nephews! have one; my son can have one, too’.’* * * * AUG. 25—“During the night I had a telephone conversation wi‘h Von Ribbentrop who says the situ ation is becoming ‘critical’ because of the usual ‘Polish provocations’ . . . I succeed in having I] Duce approve a communication to Hit ler announcing our nonintervention for the time being ... I was very happy over this result but II Duce recalls me to Palazzo Veezia. “He has changed his mind. ■ He fears the Germans and wants to intervene at once. It is useless to struggle . . . “2 p. m. I hear of a message from Hitler to II Duce ... It is couched in abstract language but gives one to understand that the action will begin shortly. It asks for ‘Italian understanding.’ MUSSOLINI, CIANO ATTEMPT BLACKMAIL “I use this phrase to persuade II Duce to write to Hitler that we are unprepared for war, and that we shall go into it only if he will furnish us all the equipment and raw materials we require . . . German reaction is cool. Von Mackensen (German ambassador; brings a brief note at 9:30 p. m. in which we are requested to make a complete list of what we need . . . He hopes this will put the brakes on his government . . AUG. 26—“Berlin is showering us with requests for the list . . . We go over it. It’s enough to kill a bull, if a bull could read. Alone with II Duce, we prepare a mes sage to Hitler. We explain why Italy absolutely cannot begin war without such provisions . . . Trans mitting our requests, Attolico gets into difficulty. He asks for imme diate delivery, an impossibility since it involves 17,000,000 tons which would require too many cars for its transport. * * * “Hitler’s reply arrives. He can give us only iron, coal, lumber, only a few anii-aircraft batteries He says he understands our dif ficulties, and asks our friendship. “He proposes to annihilate Poland, Poland alone, and to defeat France and England . . . II Duce expresses his regret for being unable to intervene. He is really confused. His mil itary instincts and his sense of honor were leading him to war. Now reason has halted him . . . For II Duce this is a great blow.” MUSSOLINI DANCES TO HITLER’S TUNE AUG. 27— "Halifax (British for eign minister) has informed us courteously that measures taken ir. the Mediterranean must not be interpreted as preliminary to hos tilities against us . . . Hitler still is determined to go to war, and makes three requests: 1. That we not make known our decision for neutrality until it is absolutely necessary. 2. That we continue our military preparations to check the French and British, and, 3. That /e send agricultural and industrial workers to Germany. 11 Duce concurs in all this, and prom ises to revise our position aftei the initial phase of the conflict "Meanwhile a singular incident occurs. They (the British) com munlcate to us the text of Ger man proposals for an alliance, or what seems equivalent to it. This was made naturally without our knowledge . . . We decide to make direct contact with Halifax. “In this i.iove I have been abandoned completely by the large group who are concerned with telling H Duce only those things that will please him.
