JJ7OJ7 vunoiaia ur TWO SECTIONS XTH QOO YANKS PEARSON BEATS REDS 40 Isolation Debaters Are Stars By CHARLES P STEWART Central Press Columnist From the very beginning of the current extra session of congress its been evident that advocates ot modification of the Wye neu trality law hac this laws 100 per cent stand patters o u t n u m b e r ed They haven had the 100 per centers out orated though That the modi ficationists ul timately would win has been the best betting all along Bu Senator Borah theyre not do ing it spectacularly The 100 per cent crowd has been making the welkin ring The modificationists simply have argued soberly de pending ontheir obvious numeri cal superiority upon victory to the accompaniment of no particu lar outbursts of eloquence Ultraisolationists like Sena tors Borah Nye Clark and John son of California no doubt real ized from the first that theyd be beaten in the long run but theyre sparkling talkers Theyve been making a fight to the bitter end such as Warsaws admirable re gardless of its windup The modificationists led by Senator Pittrnan chairman of the upper houses foreign affairs com mittee have been moderate rea soners not impassioned speech makers Being sure that they were in a majority theyve been pretty calmabout it trelying on their prep strength wittiouVjishbotihg off tipnal Thev fact remains tbat a highly vocal modificationist had a good chance to riiakehimself so conspicuous as to figure among future presidential possibilities Nobody has seized the opportun ity The unqualified isolationists have done the star debating bul their creditable performance wont profit era materially Which Is Which How do the outandout isola tionists and the modificaiionists differ It seems like a foolish question to ask considering how often il already has been asked and an swered Yet Ive seen folks who dont appear to know precisely what the correct definitions are The Nye law provides essen tially that we cant sell war stuff to any belligerent nation The modificationists contend that we should sell to any country that can send its own ships here and take its explosives away in these same ships after previously having paid for them The alleged hitch in the Nye law is that Britain and France can do this since they have plenty of vessels to come and get their American war junk if our law permits whereas Germany lack ing the necessary craft to handle its own transportation cant do its Teutonic cash and carrying in any case The modificationists argue that indirectly this helps Hitler because it shuts the Anglo French alliance off from a source of supplies it otherwise could draw on So it isnt true American neutrality argue the modifica tionists They want to sell to any body who can come and get whats purchased They say that if the British and French can do it thats their good luck if Adolf cant thats his funeral Its non of our business either way ac cording to the modificationists Isolations Version The strict isolationists versioii is that what the modificationists really want is to aid the democra ties against totalitarianism In their sympathies the over whelming bulk of the isolationis also questionably wish the de mocracies well but not to the ex tent of involving Uncle Sam ii any overseas conflict and they think that American sales arms to ANY of the belligerents is a step in that direction If totali tarianism licks the European de mocracies theyll be sorry never theless they dont want the west ern hemisphere mixed up in it Listens to Series Wont Hear Outcome RALEIGH S Car

WASHINGTON S Senator Nye RN Dak demanded Thursday that the administration agree to divorce proposed repeal of the arms embargo from its cash and carry program neu trality legislation Proponents of the administra tion legislation he charged are taking the position that repeal of the embargo must be effected be fore other provisions of the pend ing neutrality bill which would restrict the nations foreign trade could be enacted That lie asserted misleads the people ana jeopardizes the peace of the United States There is no good reason he tola his colleagues why should not have both the arms embargo and the cash and carry provision Nye took the floor after Senator Tobey RN H had spoken in support of his proposal first ad vanced Wednesday to split the present bill in two enact now the shipping controls and other simi lar provisions and take up later the question of repealing the em bargo Tobey wyued In support of iU Plan there fa like lihood that oar ships will be in danger of being sunk in the war zones at any time and thus endanger the determination of this country to be kept out of the European ivar While the historic debate held forth on the senate floor for the fourth day Senator George D Ga told reporters that he ex pected democratic authors of the pending bill to meet soon and consider modification of the ship ping and financial provisions He said shipping interests had protested what they considered the stringency of the restrictions which would be imposed on shipping On tie house side Representa tive Munat KS charg ing strategists of the arms em bargo repeal drive with com mittee a sly legislative trick demanded that the house be per mitted a full 30 days debate on neutrality legislation The strategists of the embar go repeal drive have resorted to a sly legislative trick in an effort to deprive house members from having due opportunity to consid er any legislation now passed by the senate he said Instead of introducing a new neutrality bill in the senate x x x the session of the senate foreign afiairs committee open to re pealisfs only determined upon the device of amending everything after the title of the previously passed house bill Thus while the bill is an en tirely new piece of legislation it will come back to us as an amend ment to the house bill and under customary procedure will go to conference the differences ratified and then
