THESE ARE DAYS WHEN
DECISIONS MUST BE MADE '
To say that the government of
the United States is making some
of the gravest decisions in its his
tory in the field erf foreign
is to repeat the obvious. Th
dent's speech of March 12 was simp
ly one more momentous step along
a road whose end no one can fore
see. Mr. Truman put into somber
words a set of principles which,
whether one likes them or not, are
clear, basic and unequivocal. There
will be changes in details—as, for
instance, in how much money will
be appropriated for the aid of
Greece, Turkey or other nations.
But it seems certain that after the
tumult and the shouting die, the
broad principles will remain.
It is worth nothing that Senator
Vandenberg, the principal Repub
lican congressional authority on
foreign affairs, approved the Presi
dent's declaration.
It is plain that we are gradually
assuming the position in the world
which was once held by Great
Britain. England emerged from the
first war strong and rich, and re
gained her traditional role as a world
power on which the sun never set.
A victorious and proud France was
her main ally in Europe. The en i
of the second war saw an incredible
change. England is weak and
hungry, relying on American dol
lars for her subsistence, and the
greatest Empire the modern world
has known is in the weary process
of disintegration. And little is left
of the old France.

HI-WAY COMMISSION WILL
USE $50,060 FOR TWO
TOURIST PUBLICATIONS
Helena—(U.R)—The Montana High^
way Commission will use the $50,
000 appropriated annually during
the next biennium by the 30th
legislature to put out two tourist
publications, according to an an-;f

is Soviet Russia. Mr. Truman did
not speak the word Russia, but no
one who heard his voice or read
his words could doubt what was in
his mind and the minds of Cong
ress. Greece is of little importance
in herself, ànd few Americans* can
admire the present Greek govern
ment. But Greece is a buttress be-,
tween Turkey and the Soviet Union
—and Turkey controls the Darda
„eile,. As Time ha, put it, "If Tur
key and the Dardanelles went, the
whole Middle East might slide in
to the Russian orbit." And that
would be an ominous victory for
the forces behind the Iron Cur
tain.
It is apparently the view of Mr.
Truman and his advisors that the|
time for firmness can no longer be
postponed—and 'if" this involves'
great,* calculated risks, that is a
chance we must take. To lose the
peace couldf be as ultimately ruin
ous as if we had lost the war itself.
To carry out this firm policy, the
State Department has been meas
ur »k>ly strengthened.
Secretary Marshall enjoys an al-jof
m . oai reputation. In the
view of many, he is the ablest man
in American public life. There is
none of the taint of the politician
about him. When he took over, he
shook up the Department from top
to bottom. Moribund officials, sub
merged in routine and red tape were 1
removed. Marshall made it clear
that a man's job depended upon his
efficiency and performance. He
picked for his closest advisors the
best rpen available—such as Johft

to one side, the plain fact is that
the nations which worked together
effectively in war are not working
together in pease.
Invariably Russian spokesmen say
that American "intervention' , in the
affairs of European nations such as
Greece, is no different from Rus
sian "intervention in the affairs of
nations such as Yugoslavia. The
President's implied answer is that
there is a great difference between
forcing a philosophy of government
down a country's throat, virtually j
at bayonet point, and aiding a coun
try in peaceably choosing the gov- !
ernment it wants, by ballot. This 1
could be debated indefinitely, but i
that is how it stands now.
The dangers that face us are
many. And the top danger, of course
is the possibility of a third war which
might destroy civilization and re-,
turn the world to another dark age. |
Yet it seems impossible to believe |
that the peoples qf the world could
bring themselveè to fight again in |
the forseeable future—or that the
nations have the resources for war. '
The great question is what course
can be trusted to secure the peace,
and all the decisions are predicated 1
on that. j
In the meantime, is it pleasant to !
adminis
/
n
record that the country still seems
unified in basic foreign policy. A
recent Gallup poll showed over
whelming sentiment in favor of re
cisting aggressive aims of Russia.
Republicans and Democrats alike
sit in the high councils of state,
and go as delegates to the confer
ences. We are making our stand
on world problems plain to all—
and there can be no turning back.
