Atlantic Control Is War Stake
For U. S., Maj. Eliot Holds
Maintenance of British Fleet Necessary
To Offset Axis Power, He Declares
By MAJ. GEORGE FIELDING
During the past week, we have
had several useful lessons.
We have seen that the British
government sets so high a value
on sea power that it was willing,
even at the risk of turning a former
ally into an enemy, to take the
most drastic measures to prevent
acquisition by Germany of addi
We have seen the tremendous
moral value in war, let alone ma
terial value, of a bold and resolute
policy which is not handicapped
by refusal to take risks.
We have seen to what abject sub
mission a proud and warlike nation
may be reduced by the new "strategy
of terror,” once its organized re
sisting power has been broken and
the lives of its citizens are at the
mercy of a modem technique of
conquest as ruthless as that of Jen
ghiz Khan or Timur, and far more
efficiently equipped and adminis
We have had laid at rest the
rumors which have been going about
to the effect that Britain now in
tends to sue for peace in her turn.
We have been told that Nazi Ger
many does not recognize the basic
concept of the Monroe Doctrine,
and that Germany sees no reason
why some European nations, and
not others, should have possessions
in the Western Hemisphere.
Warning to Latin America.
We have read in Herr Hitler’s own
newspaper, the Voelkischer Beo
bachter, a warning to our Latin
American neighbors on the "unsat
isfactory” attitude of their press,
with a grim forecast that Germany
will never forget where she found
friendship, and where criticism,
when it comes time to adjust the
future relations of Germany and
We have been brought face to
face with the possibility that, with
the expressed German attitude
toward Latin America what it is,
the French possessions in this
hemisphere, and presumably those
of the Netherlands and Denmark
as well. may. under the control of
German-directed puppet govern
ments in the home states, become
centers of Nazi influence and in
trigue in the New World—to say
nothing of becoming naval and air
bases. And this may be done with
out any change of flag or transfer
of sovereignty: without, that is any
outward violation of the Monroe
We have seen, from French state
ments. that the Germans never
once abandoned their pressure to
obtain control of the French fleet,
despite their promises and assur
ances that it would not be used
against Great Britain in this war.
Taking those promises at face value,
for what purpose was it intended
that it should be used?
Conning over these lessons, adding
them to what we know of our own
military position, we come to cer
tain inescapable conclusions.
One is that the real stake in
this war is the command of the
maritime communications of the
Atlantic Ocean. That command
rests still in British hands, thanks
to the vigorous action of the Brit
ish government. But it will do so
only as long as the British fleet
continues to exist, as long as it
still has bases adequate to its opera
tion and maintenance, and as long
as Britain is able to maintain that
freedom of action which is In
dispensable to the free employment
of sea power.
But we must also recognize that
command of the Atlantic Ocean is
vital to our own security. We can
exercise that command ourselves
as against the present combined
fleets of the axis: we cannot exer
cise it as against the fleets the axis
will have next year, plus the Brit
ish fleet. We cannot build or ac
quire from any source, in time, the
warships needed for this purpose.
It is, therefore, necessary for us to
maintain the British fleet in being—
if we can.
More, it is also necessary for us
to see to it that the control of that
fleet does not pass into hands which
may be hostile to us—if we can.
Question Is Risk.
These propositions are self-evi
dent. They scarcely require argu
ment. The question to be weighed
is whether we can do anything ef
fective to contribute to this neces
sary end without taking risks which
are unjustified by the hope of suc
Remember that we take risks any
way. If we do nothing, we take
the risk that the British fleet, in
the hands of a Nazified British
government under control of a ruth
less German master, or in the hands
of German officers and men, may
be employed to further German am
bitions in the New World which will
bring us Into deadly danger. This
risk we must weigh against the risks
we take if we now try to prevent
such a thing from happening. It
can be prevented from happening
only by prolonging the powers of
British resistance, either in the
British Isles, or if that be impos
sible in the end. then in the domin
ions and colonies of the Empire.
While this resistance continues,
xve purchase time to continue with
the scarcely begun labors of com
pleting our own defenses. When
this resistance ends, we must face
alone whatever may betide. In the
| face of existing facts, in the face of
no more than the past week's les
sons, we had better have done with
| all contentions of the “we-can-get
along-with-Hitler” order. We have
seen the end to which appeasers
I come. We can get along with a vic
' torious Hitler only under conditions
where we can oppose his force with
superior force. That means first of
all sea power. We come back to the
facts of the situation —we come
back to the British fleet.
But what can we do to prolong
First of all. we can give the Brit
! ish people hope. It was the death
of hope which was the death of
the French republic. If we do noth
i ing, the British will fight, but they
I will fight as men fight who see no
use in fighting save to sell their
lives dearly as they may. This is
the greatest and most far-reaching
aid we can afford the British.
Second, we can make available to
British warships the use of our
North Atlantic bases for mainte
nance and repair, now that their
own are so severely threatened.
Can Aid Evacuation.
Third, we can organize on a grand
scale efforts to evacuate the chil
dren and some of the women of the
British Isles, presuming that British
resistance continues long enough to
enable these plans to become effec
Fourth, we can increase in all
categories not impairing our own
defense, and without the present
restrictions of the Neutrality Act,
our material aid to Britain.
Fifth, we can now make such
agreements as shall assure the safety
of the British dominions and colo
nies by American-British naval co
operation in the event of the forced
evacuation by the British fleet of
its home bases. This would involve
our agreeing not to permit the Ger
mans access to American foodstuffs
and supplies as long as they were
fighting Britain. It would require
the support of our Latin-American
neighbors, and the assured com
mand of the Atlantic Ocean.
Sixth, we can now take such steps
as shall assure us of having fully
manned, equipped and defended
bases to make this policy good—
in Greenland. Newfoundland, Ber
muda, Trinidad, the Azores and on
the west coast of Africa. This, too,
requires agreement with Britain as
to the future defense of these locali

Pacific as may be possible in view
of our Atlantic situation.
Eighth, we must meanwhile build
our own defenses as energetically
as we possibly can.
Ninth, we might well consider at
this time the advisibility of break
ing off diplomatic relations with
Germany. This would not only sym
bolize our attitude, but it would put
us in a position to urge our Latin
American neighbors to do likewise;
thus enabling us to rid ourselves
of the focal points of intrigue and
subversive activity which are now
operative in every Nazi and Fascist
Embassy, Legation and consulate to
the south of the Rio Grande. These
activities would continue under
ground. no doubt; but on that basis
they can be dealt with in other
fashions than are permissible with
diplomatic agencies. As an example
of what is meant, it is reported
from Mexico City that the German
Legation in Guatemala hands out
every day some 10.000 copies of
a “news bulletin" praising Germany
and Italy and attacking not only
Britain, but the United States. This
sort of thing is becoming intolerable.
Must Weigh Powers.
Of course, in all that we do, wc
must weigh our * powers and our
limitations. We ought not to sound
trumpets or fling banners to the
breeze. We cannot plunge headlong
into a desperate attempt to drive
the Germans out of Britain, if they
get in. We do not have the power
to do so, and we ought not to waste
our strength in attempting the im
possible. Restraint limited objectives,
the taking of well calculated risics;
a policy firm in principle, cautious
is the plan but bold in executions
—and a clear sense of the value
of time: These are requisites.
Some of the acts above suggested
may, in the legal sense, be con
sidered acts of war. They will cer
tainly be acts highly irritating to
Germany. But the time has come
to realize that appeasing conquerors,
or shrinking from the mere sound
of the word “war,” is no assurance
of safety. Indeed, it is an invitation
to attack. Legalistic interpretations
of belligerence and neutrality are
outworn Actions of a day that is
dead and gone. What is required of
the American people, and their
leaders, in this hour of crisis is a
realistic facing of unpleasant facts !
and the adoption of a national
policy which will assure the safety !
of the Republic.
There can no longer be any doubt
in any thinking citizen's mind of
the reality of the danger, or the
character of the threat with which
we have to deal. But we ought to
remember that the resources of Nazi
Germany are not inexhaustible; that
famine will gnaw at Europe's vitals
this coming winter; that Hitler has
not acquired access to any source of
petroleum which can really take care
of his requirements, and that his
bid for world empire, like those of
Philip II, Louis XIV. Napoleon and
Wilhelm II before him. can be
strangled by sea powe’ in the end—
provided sea power is given time to
do its slow but inexorable work.
British Shirked Duty.
It is not our duty to preserve the
balance of power in Europe. His
torically, that is the task of Britain.
Successive British governments have
shirked this duty; a generation of
British people have refused to bear
the burdens of armament. Admit
all this—and yet we are today faced
with a situation which, while not
wholly of our making, must, never
theless. be dealt with not on the basis

LAKE GENEVA, Wis , July 6 —
“Pro-American” delegates to the
American Youth Congress, denied
seats for “technical reasons,” head
ed home tonight after announcing
plans for a new youth organization
in Michigan as a step toward a na
tional “anti-Communist” group.
Their sponsor, former Heavy

“The American Youth Congress
doesn’t really represent youth. It’s
a lot of labels, and one of its biggest
labels is the Young Communists.”
Meanwhile the Youth Congress
proceeded with routine business ses
sions and a discussion of its by
laws and constitution. Election of
officers was scheduled for tomorrow.
Bruce McKay of Detroit said the
“pro-Americans” would set up a
Michigan State council “within 60
days” composed of members of Jun
ior Chambers of Commerce, Chris
tian Endeavor, De Molay, Young
Democrats and Republicans and
McKay said Michigan was chosen
because a large majority of the
“Tunney bloc” was from that State.
Other States would be invited to
Join them later, he said.
The Michigan State council will
be headed by Henry G. Groehn and
Edward Church, both of Detroit, and
chairmen, respectively, of the Young
Republicans and Young Democrats

our services, and if need be our
lives, to the great task of defend

rights against any attack of ene

Tunney Attacks Reds.
On his arrival in New York by
plane, Mr. Tunney said the Youth
1 Congress was a “Communist group,
financed by the Communist partv
and in direct contact with, and
taking orders from Moscow."
"Personally.” he said. “I don't
think that too many pressure groups
are too good. Democracy has been
run by and for pressure groups, and
maybe we'd better start getting a
pressure group of American citizens
for a change."
The Youth Congress, he continued,
was "completely discredited, particu
larly on their vote to refuse to help
Britain in its fight against Nazi-ism.
and also on their stand against
compulsory military training.”
