   Oakland Tribune (Newspaper) - February 18, 1933, Oakland, California                                Comment CHESTER KO WELL report which the 1 League of Nations com- mittee has at last issued on vhe Manchurian situation is a momentous document so fraught with possibilities of good or harm that it is small wonder that the great League powers, who alone must shoul- der the responsibility, hesi- tated so long to take this step. They did not do it until the only alterna- te e the surrender of all the peace machinery which the twentieth-century world was trying to set up. and the announce- ment that the rwe or unrestrained and irresponsible force is again the of nations.

It was carefully limited to the provisions of the paragraph on and it nothing but a voluntary process, for agreement between Japan and China, through a commission ap- pointed under League procedure. On its face, it is scrupulously cor- rect and formally harmless. But in its >substance it constitutes a judg- ment It declares, officially, what had before been said only unof- ficially, that Japan is legally in the wrong; it has broken its treaties and international law, and the firit condition of even negotiations for agreement is for Japan to ac- cept in advance the principle that it has done what it had no right to do, and will undo it. ft o 0 ''HE committee of nineteen, which has now unanimously agreed on this report, eon- j tained representatives of every na- tion which could by any possibility have objected. Its unanimous ap- proval by the full Assembly is therefore a foregone conclusion. Since the doctrine it enunciates has already been proclaimed independ- ently by America, and since Russia is emphatically of the same opinion, though cynically skeptical of the iiiacerity ol the League and of America in saying so, this means the unanimous voice of organized mankind.

It is not so simple as that. Has Mr. Sullivan forgotten the battalion of death? Under the present rules of Congress, especially patch, says. "As n sequel to of the Senate, a minority hold the l.ytton report, the Assembly's pronouncement constitutes, with that document, the most ambitious international effort ever exerted to regulate a warlike struggle through peaceful means. It embodies the most severe and arresting indict- ment of the policies of a great power which ever was undertaken In issuing the report, the League leaders experienced the extremes of apprehension and lest this bold move for con- certed condemnation of a strong might lead to rupture and a vorld conflagration; hope that this organized and solemn effort might prove a tremendous victory for the world's peace machinery and a powerful guarantee against later International disturbances O O o IN judgment of fncts and in pro- posals of methods there is little new in the report. It- new fea- ture is that the great nations have taken the responsibility of issuing It. It. declares bluntly that "sov- ereignty over Manchuria belongs to China." The presence of Japanese troops is "incompatible with legal principles." The new semi-auton- omous government proposed for Manchuria, under Chinese sov- ereignty and territorial vintesrity. nhould take account of "multilat- eral" treaties in force. The "twenty- one demand'' treaties of 1915. whose acceptance Jopan is trying to im- up thr derision of the majority. There is every reason to believe it could. For if the Democrat ir caucus were brave enough to vote as Mr. Sullivan suggests, the temptation Repuh'ican members to pose as> the friends of the organized minorities would be so great as to be irresisti- ble. A small and resolute section of Congress could block Congress and play upon the passiojis of the mi- norities. That being the almost certain prospect, it is asking too much of political human nature to imagine that Democratic congress- men will expose themselves In the risks of bold measures. The caucus is necessary. But it must be re- inforced by other measures to make it effective. These other measures arc a centralization of the responsi- bility for the initiative in that branch of the government, namely, the executive, which is not depend- ent upon local influences in the dis- tricts and does not have to face the electorate within 18 months the opening of the special session. IN other quarters it has been sug- gested that Speaker Garner's proposal to invest the President wilh power to reduce or suspend expenditures, is a form of con- gressional abdication which is, ab- ject.

A fireat emergency can be dealt with only by the swift use of power exeiciscd by some central authority which possesses the confidence of, the people. Thr danger wr have to fear is not that Congress will give Franklin D. Roosevelt too much power, but that it will deny him the powers he needs. The dnn- Rer is not that we shall lose our liberties but that we shall not be able to act with the necessary speed and comprehensiveness. To give the President the power to act must, therefore, be the first objective of those who appreciate the situation we are in and understand the mag- nitude of the measures that are needed to cope with it.

There can be no sepa- rate action by the League nations, and neither Russia nor America is rash enough to, contemplate any action. That action could not be war, unless Japan forced it, and, against a united world, only mad- men in Japan would think of forc- ing It. But it may be concerted non-military steps. They may be the only'alternative to isolated mili- tary America, most of all, is determined to avoid. I S it our business? record says it is. Our whole We have never had a policy of "non-en- tanglement" in Asia. It was we who proclaimed the "open door" policy. The Washington conference treaties, which expressly make it our busi- ness, were proposed by us. and signed by us on our soil. It it is riot our busmess. it is because we have reversed all the policy of all our past When did we do that? And if it is not our business, we are the only nation in the world that thinks it not its business. Sweden and Holland and Rumania and 'Peru and Liberia and Persia and Siam have declared it their business, as have Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, Mexico and Australia. Are we not nearer to it than most of them? Certainly Japan and' China, Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America and the islands of the sea think we are. Any individual American who thinks otherwise stands very much olone, isolated from the his- tory-of hit own country, as well from that "opinion of mankind" fe which nation in iti very not f think, that the House of hkn 'a id FannTHurs Commons exercises the right to force thp government of tho day to fir vol, spend money. If the power to com- i I pel expendilures is a part of historic liberties, then the principle of a true executive udget is an ab- ject surrender. Yet no one cries out that our liberties are Imperiled when proposals made in states and municipalities that legislatures may reduce but may not increase the executive budget. This is a fa- miUar principle, and there is no reason why It should not be em- ployed by the federal government. Now the powers which Mr. Gar- ner proposes to vest in Ihe Presi- dent are essentially the powers he would have under a true executive budget. They are the powers to re- duce end allocate expenses, and as long as Congress retained Ihe power of taxation and the power to ac- cept or reject the President's de- cisions the historic power of the purse would be unimpaired. If Congress in addition can be induced to limit for the period of Ihe emer- gency ils power to interfere with the details of the President's deci- sions in matters of expenditures, or- ganizing itself in such a way that minorities cannot obstruct, there is no principle of liberty I know of to forbid it. a matter of fact, the Garner proposals as such, judged by the genera] descriptions them thus far published, govern little, if at all, beyond restoring to the executive powers which7 under a well organized system of govern- ment he ought to have. It is a bad system even in normal times under which the 'responsibility for ex- penditures is divided and initiative is in the hands of groups of men owing allegiance to small districts. It is because we under thh system have the pork bar- ral, that wa .have havc the same curious ob- jjcction to paying money for commodities that has been one of our traits irom childhood, then it might be good Idea to look into Ihe Spanish Transallantic Line, which plies between here, Spain and Mexico. With some chance of a repeal looming on the horizon, the Spanish boys figure they ought to make their home products popular and, as a result, they are serving port wines, sherries, champagne and cordials free in their ships. People over here might very well become attached to one of the brands in the course of a crossing, they be- lieve, and something known as n might be developed in that way. Which reminds us that the word sherry is a corruption of Xeres, the name of the liltle Spanish town in which the finest sherry is pro- duced.

"I don't want my child to be- lieve that I told him a lie and whul else can he think when he discoveis that there is no Santa, that the Giant Killer never existed, that fairies are fables?

Peoplr have looked at opposing ideas and have cnllcil them both the truth. Maybe they were right at that. I don't knou. But about one point I fee! fairly certain. There is truth in Ihe fairy tales. It is wrapped up in the words of the story as a jewel is wrapped for safe keeping. The child's power to discover it. is beyond question. With the agile fingers of his imagi- nation he unwraps it and claims it for his own. Why not Jack the Giant Killer'1 Nobody can climb to tho lop of a beanstalk?

In December, Philadelphia put 1he high minded and competent Kern Dodge, consulting engineer, in the office of director of public safety, with wide extensions of powers, covering even the censor- ship of the stage. Today the Phila- delphia Criminal Justice Associa- tion is charging that the city is in a "perilous condition." There is frantic worry over the doings of the "Uptown mob." Mr. Dodge re- plies thai "there is much t would like to tell you, which, under the circumstances had better be left unsaid." This is Mr. Dodge's first public office.

The j lesoiuuon as passeu uy Uie Sena it.- j it will be accepted by the House rather than delay i provides not only for repeal of the Eighteenth amendment but puts in J its place an article which forbids the importation of liquor into any State which will have passed laws against such shipment. I The Democratic platfoi m advo- j i cated unconditional repeal; the Re- publican platform proposed a clause to prohibit importation into dry States and another clause to retail Federal power over the saloon. The latter section was lost but with this exception the resolution as passed by the Senate is a combina- tion of what the Republicans sug- gested in the platform as well as what the Democrats recommended. Any other course would have de- feated the resolution, for there was no two-thirds strength in the Sen- ate for naked and unconditional re- peal and the ardent friends of re- peal recognized the necessity of compromise. The success of the new amend- ment in the House now is assured because enough members who vot- ed againsl naked repeal when it was proposed on the first day of the session, said Irankly that if they had a chance to vote on an amend- ment that would protect the dry States they would do so. IF the new resolution should be ratified by the Slates, il would mean I hat federal enforcement laws would be necessary to take care of interstate shipments where dry States might be affected. After all, this is what wels for years have boen proclaiming, namely, that dry States should be permitted to remain dry and wet States should be allowed to be as wet as they pleased nnd that the fallacy in t ic Eighteenth amendment was its at- tcmpl to nationalize instead of lo- calize. The principle of local op- lion has been imbedded in the his- tory of prohibition for generations. Congress would be compelled lo appropriate money annually to pre- vent violation of its laws protecting the dry States from invasion by liquor dealers of all kinds, who might attempt by truck or by mail or by airplanr to ship liquor into Slates which had passed laws for- bidding its sale. The extreme wets, who argued against the clause pro- tecting dry States with c'Knslilli- tional power, contended th.il exist- ing Federal law would be suf- ficient. Tho dry Stale defenders de- clared, however, thai il was not de- sirable to remain under the whim oT a majority of Congress, especially since tho liquor dealers might be dominant and weaken the laws againsl importation. With a consti- tutional prohibition, they feel that they ore protected with the full force of the Constitution and that, irrespective of majority rule by Congress, they can invoke Federal protection. THE one joker in Ihe new reso- lution is the clause which re- quires ratification by State conventions. This means delay and Ihe drys privately feel hopeful that it vill help them prevent ratifica- tion. Encli State legislalure musl pass a law arranging for conven- tions. On the method of selecting the delegates may depend Ihe out- romp of tho convention, especially if dry rural districts are given equal representation wilh wel cilies. Had Ihc amendment been written lo in- clude ratification by either cunsli- tulional convenlions or legislalures, the process would have been ex- pedited. Such a suggestion may yet be tacked on in the House but, in view of the desire to speed Ihe'amend- menl onlo the Stales, the wets are taking no chances. The Senalc ac- tion has made il possible for house leaders to try again lo suspend the rules and attempl Ihc passage of the repeal resolution. The vote may be close again in the House bul tho compiomisu resolution puts a new lace on Ihe whole matter and would seem to indicate victory for the resolution next week, when the Demociatic leaders plan to force a vole. lO.'W. lor The Tribune.)

The embattled farmeis of Beauce have had a slick city trick played on them by Jean Chiappe, the Corsican police prefect of Paris, and they are furious. They came, 8000 strong, to the oilier day to hold a mass meet- ing, after which they intended to march on the Chamber of Dep- uties, with banners 'flying. They want the government to do some- thing aboul the price of wheat, which has dropped lo a bush- el as a consequence of the last bumper crop. The big wheat growing area jp almost at the gates of Paris. Most of the farmers came from no fur- ther than Chartres, 50 miles away. A week before they had besiegtfd the Charlres prefeclure and scared Ihe prefect half oul of his wits, and they were resolved to stand no in- terference from Prefect Chiappe, who is famous all over France for Ihe way he breaks up all kinds Ot mass demonslrations. Probably if M. Chiappe had launched his strong-arm squad against the Beauce farmers there. would have been some nasty scenes. But instead he went in person to the hall where they were holding their indignation meeting and pass- ing the resolutions which they tri'- tcnded to force down the throats. Shaking hands with the principal leaders of the farm move- ment, he announced that he had brought a bicycle squad to escort the parade. When the leaders emerged from the hall, followed by their 8000 cheering followers, they wer'e quickly surrounded by the bicycle police and the parade started. Ban- ners reading "We Want were hoisted.
