One ef the most terrible tragedies la tbs history of the human race is be ing enacted to the broad bolt of terri tory lying between the Baltic and the Black and Adriatic seas. This area Includes the new Baltic taten Poland. Czecho-Slovakia, the Ukraine, Austria, Hungary, Roumanie, Montenegro, Albania and Serbia. The report» which come to us make It clear that la these war-ravaged leads civilization has broken down.

Wholesale starvation Is threatened In Poland this summer unless sh* can procure food supplies In large quan tities. There are now approximately $80,000 cases of typhus In Poland and In ths area occupied by Polish troops Worst Typhus Kpldsmlc In History. This Is one of th* worst typhus epi demics la ths world's history. In Galicia whole towns ar* crippled and business suspended. In some district* there is but one doctor to each 180,000 people. In the Ukraine», we are told, typhus and Influença hare affected most ol the population.

I aak myself: "what If the plague and famine were here In the great ter ritory between the Atlantic seaboard and the Mississippi valley, which roaghly parallels the extent of these ravaged countries, and that 69,000,000 ef our own people condemned to Idle ness by lack ef raw material and whose fields had been devastated by Invasion and rapine were racked by starvation and pestilence and If we had lifted up our voices and invoked tbs attention ef onr brothers In hap pier Europe to onr own deep miseries and our cries had fallen on deaf ears, would wo not la onr despair exclaim against their heartl Only THrae Ways to Help Europa.

The French government has many serious probl French peasantry Is working and the French artisan, while atilt sadly In need of raw material», has not lost his habit of industry and thrift The most encouraging fact about France today Is that her people are nllre to the ser iousness of France's problems, and they are goin« forward bravely to solve that problem. Italy, despite her greet shortage of raw materials, Is looking forward and not backward. Italy can be relied up on to do her part. England la meeting the problems of reconstruction Just as those who knew her past should have expected has to asset them. cou to solve but the Plan to Aid Contrai Bur-ops. It to aot for me perhaps, to give in dstmll a formula for solution of th* world's 111, but so I have been asked many times, "What would you dot' I am glad to give my own answer. Accordingly I would ask: 1. —That congres» Immediately pass a bill appropriating a sum not to ex coed $800,000,000 for th* asa of cen tral and eastern Europe. 2. —That congress call upon the president to appoint a non-political commission of three Americana, dis tinguished for their character and ex ecutive ability and commanding the respect ef the American people. Such » commission should Include men of the type ef General Pershing. Mr. Hoover or ox-Secretary Lane. I would Invest that commission with compléta power. 3. —I would have the commission In structed to proceed at once, accom panied by proper peraennel, to survey conditions In central and eastern Eu rope and then act for ths restoration of those countries under such condi tions and upon such terms as ths com mission Itself may décide to he prac ticable and effective. Among the con ditions should be provided that there should bs no local lntsrfersncs with ths free and untrammelled exercise by the commission of Its own prerogative of allotlng, materials. Governmental politics should be eliminated; unreas onable prejudicial barriers between the^Varlous countries should be re moved, and such substantial guaran tees as may be available abould be ex acted In order that the conditions Im posed should be fulfilled. 4. —As to financial terms, I should make them liberal. I would charge ne Interest for the first three years; for the next three years 6 per ceat, with provision that much of such Interest might he refunded If the economic con ditions of the country wore not ap preaching normal, or if Its exchange conditions were so adverse as to make payment unduly burdensome. I should make ths maturity of the ebllgatios five years from Its data and I should have no doubt as to Its final payment 8.—-Immediately the plan was adopt ed I would llhve our government In vite other governments In s position to assist, to participât* In ths under taking. 6.—To set forth completely m| opinion, I should add that In the final instructions the American peopli through their government, should as) to the commission: "We want you to go and do this Jo* t B *nch s manner, as after a stud) you think It should he done. This II no ordinary undertaking. The Ameri can people trust yoa to sse that It u done right." \ I would also say to ths commission : "Use so much of this money as la needed." Personally, I am confident that with the assistance and coopers Hon which would come from othst parts of th* world ths sum of $800. 000,000 from ths United Sûtes would b* more than enough to surt these countries on their way to self support and the restoration of normal condi tions. Tbs whole plan, of course, involves many practical considerations, tbs most serious of which Is that of oh talnlng th* money, whether by Issuing additional Liberty bonds, an Increase tn the floating debt or by taxation But I think we could property say to the treasury department : _ "We know how serious yoetr finan cial problems arc; w* know the dif ficulties which are I mm ediately con fronting you ; we know the Imperien«« ef deflation, and ws know Out the K omment must Ivtduals also know that the AaseHcsn govern t advanced $10,000,000,000 to Iti slltes to attain victory and peace.
