ceeded as he did in seeing the
whole among the parts, in up
holding the grand purpose of the
coalition against all special pur
poses, and in emerging from it
with the respect, the confidence,
and the affection of those whom
he had to oppose.
The fame of Marshall has
spread outward to the people at
large from those men best able to
know what he did and to judge
him. It is no exaggeration to say
that his reputation is highest
among the men who know the
most about him. To the patience
and the firmness which are neces
sary in negotiation, he brought
also lucidity, and the ability to
judge fairly, and perspective, and
the capacity for systematic and
objective thought, and the habit
of organized and disciplined ac
tion, and a singular disinterested
ness, and immunity from fear and
personal ambition.
* * *
With Marshall at the State De
partment, with Eisenhower the
Chief of Staff, the country can
now feel confident that its policy
and its power will be in balance.
This is always important. In the
present condition of the world it
is essential.
For the effect of the war was to
bring about a convulsive change in
the distribution of power through
out the world. It has brought about
the disappearance for the time
being of two great powers — Ger
many and Japan — a weakening of
Europe as a factor in the world,
a breaking down of the authority
of all the empires that have main
tained law and order in most of
Asia and Africa, the disunity and
division of China, and an immense
and spectacular expansion of the
power and influence of Russia and
of the United States. The problem
of the peace is not now to nego
tiate the details of separate
treaties with the enemy states, but
how to achieve an equilibrium,
temporary to begin with but cap
able of becoming permanent,
among the victors.
# * *
This is a problem which cannot,
be solved by a formula of agree
ment, by the negotiation of a dip
lomatic text. The method of the
solution must in the nature of the
thing be an operation conducted
over a long period and in accord
ance with a strategic conception
of the balance of power. General
Marshall is peculiarly qualified to
conduct that operation. For it is
the continuation of the operation
of which he was the central and
war.

The sincerest tribute which the
country can pay to Mr. Byrnes is
