England “appeased” Germany at
Munich, by changing the map of
Europe and giving the Reich almost
free rein in Czechoslovakia. Today,
in the opinion of many foreign ex
perts, England has started on a
new policy of “appeasement" with
Soviet Russia—a policy which is
designed to make it possible for the
British lion to show a much stif
fer backbone, if and when Hitler
and Mussolini make their next de
mands. And. most important of‘
all, the quiet course of world events
in the last few months and appar
ently substantially diminished the
chance of a major war occurring
this year. -
March 6th was a dreaded day to
European observers. Foa- on that
day, awarding to well supported
rumors and unofficial reports, the
dictators would force the issue. Hit
ler would make another of his ring
ing demands for more territory,
either in Europe or the British col
onies. Mussolini would tell France
in unmistakable terms that she
must accede to his demands for
soverignty over Tunisia and Corsica
-—or else. Britain and France would
refuse—and war would automatic
ally begin. 7
March 6th came and went and
nothing happened. As Time puts it,
“No ultimatums were delivered, no
troops marched (except in Spain),
and the dictators even temporarily
ceased barking for more land. No
week in months has been so gener
ally peaceful in Europe.”
Most authorities ascribe this
change to a number of diverse
things. The European democracies
have been rearming at a rapid
rate, and, from the defense stand
point. are in a materially better
position than they were last year.
mu and British public opinion .
seems to favor resisting to the ut- {
most giving any further “conces- .
sions” to Italy and Germany. The ‘1
attitude of the United States, as .
signified by the speeches of the w:
President and the Secretary or 1
State, are said to have encouraged 1
France and England and given the 1
dictators something to think about.
In some high quarters it is believed
that Hitler and Mussolini have I
done a great deal of blurring, and ‘
are in no position to fight a major 1
war—and know it privately. And ¢
apparently responsible reports say ‘
that the temper of the people of 5
Germany and Italy is so strongly (
opposed to war that the dictators ¢
would risk the chance of domestic s
uprisings and perhaps revolution if t
they started one. t
England—which still holds .the
balance of power abroad, in spite of
losses in prestige—has apparently
come to the view that, much as she
dislikes Soviet Russia, Stalin is a
friend worth having. It is highly
significant that a British trade
delegation recently left London on
a tour of Northern Europe, and that

Commerce makes allies—and Russia
is unquestionably the niost potent
ally that France and. Britain could
have in Europe. Russian distrust ct
Britifli motives and actions is said
to have made her very distant when
she was approached by the de
moa'acies before Munich as to what
she would do in the eventor hos
tilities. And rumor that Stalin is
considering an alliance with
Nazi Germany 11 England would
not make a better bid, is said to
have sent chills up the spines of
the worried British cabinet.
Upshot of all this: A better mor
ale in the democracies than has
been seen tor a long time. and a 1
very definite moderation of the‘
talk of the dictators.
Our interest in anything that
makes for peace or war in Europe is
obvious. Even it we stayed out or
the conflict—and many authori
ties think we could not—a major
war would disrupt trade and world
finance, and bring dire repercus
sionshereaswellasabroad. Itls
a well known fact that the possi
bility of war has been one of the
tactors that has held us back eco
nomically. If. as seems true now,
ope has been bettered, the out
look for “recovery" here as home
has been immensely improved.

if purchasing power is going to be
restored. The disposition the past

are drastically reduced the earnings
of all those in the brackets below
