Germany. But there is also an
invisible level of great power rela
tionships. Here we do not see
much. But wnat we do see is suf
ficient to justify the hypothesis
that all the great powers are act
ing on the assumption that they
must prepare for a possible war.
Here the strategists and the
military planners are the real ad
visers of the diplomats. What they
advise is not reported. But the
effect can be felt in the immense
importance which is being given
to strategic points like Trieste and
the Italian colonies.
When the foreign ministers
meet, each of them has secret in
telligence and secret military in
structions. These determine the
position he takes on the various
secondary and incidental matters
which are being negotiated. But
the ministers do not negotiate on
the primary issues which arise
from the conflict of power, and are
defined by the strategists and mili
tary planners whose business it is
to see to it that vital interests
can be successfully defended in
the event of war. Churchill, Stalin
and Roosevelt might have dis
cussed these primary issues. For
foreign ministers do not and prob
ably cannot. Thus there is no
progress in the making of peace
but on the contrary a most dan
gerous drift in the direction of
war.
If this drift cannot be arrested
by the heads of governments, then
the task will have to be attempted
by the public opinion. But it is enor
mously difficult for the people to
do this because it is almost impos
sibly difficult for the press, even
an altogether free press like our
own, to report the invisible Situa
tion. Military planning and mili
tary calculations are not easily
reported in the newspeapers.
Perhaps they should not be. But
the curious thing is that these
secret calculation are never in
their main elements secrets to
those against whom they are di
rected. They are secrets from the
public. They are not secrets from
the governments which keep them
selves informed not by means oi
newspapers correspondents but by
means of intelligence agents. Mr.
Molotov undoubtedly knows more
about British and American mili
tary thinking and planning than
do the people of Britain and the
United States. And by the same
token Mr. Bevin and Mr. Byrnes
know more about Soviet military
ideas than the Soviet press and
propaganda have any intention of
publishing.
Thus, to put it bluntly, the for
eign ministers meet and confer,
with the idea Of peace in the front
of their minds and the idea of war
in the back of their minds.
Out of this there will have to
come some day a peace conference
—not a conference about the Axis
satellites—but a peace conference
among the Allies. The question is
whether there can be an Anglo
Soviet-American peace conference
now in order to prevent war, or
later on to settle the war into
which they will surely drift if they
do not avert it.

BYRNES TO AGREE
ON EASIER TERMS
Secretary Now In Accord
With Molotov On Balkan
Armistice Set-Up
WASHINGTON, May 22. — (A1) -
Secretary of State Byrnes has
agreed with Foreign Minister Molo
tov to revise armistice terms im
posed on former German satellite
countries in the Balkans, provided
the revisions are in line with those
already worked out for Italy.
In making this known Wednes
day, the State department said the
Italian terms still are secret and
until they are disclosed it will not
be possible to indicate what line
the Balkan revisions might take.
They should, officials told repor
ters, give greater freedom of ac
tion to the governments of Ro
mania, Bulgaria and Hungary.
British Doubtful
Some diplomatic informants sug
gested privately that the British
do not see eye to eye with the
Americans on the Balkans armis
tice problem, fearing revision:
would lessen Anglo-American au
thority there and take all check:
off the authority of the Russian:
whose armies occupy the countries
The whole question of armistice
revision came up at the Paris for
eign ministers meeting. Byrne:
proposed a new set of armistice
terms for Italy wnich he said
would give the Italian government
greater power and responsibility
in running the country.
Molotov Agrees
Molotov agreed but said that
Russia would like “analagous” re
vision of the Allied control ovei
the Balkan states.
Bevin, according to British in
formants, went along with the
Byrnes plan, but not without ex
pressing some misgivings.
The first regular shipment of
milk by rail in America was from
Orange county to New York City
,in 1841.
BUILDING PERMITS
IN STATE WAY OFF
Expenditures In April Al
most Two-Thirds Be
low Previous Month
RALEIGH, May 22.—(JPh- Ex
penditures for building in 95 North
Carolina cities and towns dropped
from $11,319,000 in March to $4,
409,000 in April—with declines be
ing registered both m residential
and non-residential construction,
Clarence Pritchard, statistics di
rector for the State Department of
Labor, reported Wednesday.
Permits for non-residential con
struction dropped from $7,186,000
in March to $1,268,000 in April and
residential building permits drop
ped from $4,129,000 to $3,140,000,
the report said.
The principal reason for the
drop in construction activity was
the government order curtailing
non-essential building,” Pritchard
said. “It is also probable the
March figure was unusually h:gh
because there were many people
who anticipated the issuance of an
order restricting building.”
The residential bunding permits
issued in April provided for con
struction of 667 new houses and
apartment buildings to house 744
families, at an average estimated
cost of $4,423 per residential build
ing. Those issued in March provid
ed housing for 857 families.
