National Library of Australia e3b33efl. Rationing and the j War Effort \ the Issue of new ration books this week end a should be a reminder to those who might be j j a growing querulous that the War is still on and �. T that the need for a continuation of reduced standards of t Comfort is As Ereat now As Ever it was. J Australia no doubt is Safe but to argue that in con j j sequence the Burden of rationing should be eased is to disregard the plight of those other countries not the least j of which is Brilain who Are still enduring greater hard j a ships Titan we have been called upon to face even during j j the period of our greatest peril. Our own improved position rather than impelling us to seek greater benefits should stimulate us to. Make even. Greater sacrifices for the Benefit of people whose need is t immeasurably greater than ours. � a nevertheless though rationing should continue to be accepted in the Coni nonsense spirit in which it was j accepted when the War was at our Gates it should not be accepted blindly and there should be sufficient vigilance to i j prevent bureaucrats from hiding their ineptitude or j governments their Clumsy planning behind a thick fog of j j appeals t o patriotism. I the reduction in the butter ration will not improve the j j plight of the people of Britain it will Only enable them to t j maintain their meagre allowance and it has been made j necessary in great measure by the denudation of Rural j. Areas of manpower. No amount of exhortation to Aid j j Britain will alter that fact. J equally justifiable Are criticisms of the poor Quality j. And the High Price of available clothing. The manpower j t and machinery allotted to civilian needs would do much t j better National service if they produced durable articles instead of shoddy As the clothing would last longer and the people would spend less on replacements. J j As it is the clothing ration is far More severe than it t j appears because the clothes give Only a fraction of the service of their pre War equivalents particularly in the j warmer climates and the government s objective of j reducing personal expenditure is being Defeated the principle of rationing. Is equitable and if those. T who Are in control of its operation Are permitted some j j flexibility to meet genuine cases of hardship will be accepted with Little complaint. T that Jiow Ever does not mean that the people should j passively permit its use to cover up inefficiency nor the j exploitation of War time shortage by the unscrupulous 5 who produce and sell inferior goods at Peak wartime prices i to their own profit. � j the people Are entitled to demand that the Burden of j War is evenly spread and that patriotism should be prac i tired and not preached As a Fine of sales talk.

A novel of Flie ret army Tuch has been written of the african campaigns but there is a remarkable shortage of Bolcs about the russian front and China s War. For this reason a novel of the red army and an autobiography describing China s struggle offer a Welcome change of diet for the omnivorous Reader. The people immortal by Vassill " be Ossman Hutchinson is a novel Hadout a unit of the red army Dur ing the grim Retreat through White Russia and the Ukraine in the autumn of 1941. It is written with passionate sincerity. There is a Stark almost crude simplicity of phrase and passage that pulsate with an emotionally lyrical Patriot ism springing deep from the soil of Russia. " the theme is the russian will to wage War the capacity of body and mine for resistance the Confidence in Victory. It smacks at times a thought too crudely of the political propagandist and it is not Surpris ing that in deference to patriotic -8nd party propaganda Grossman makes his hero Bokarev a political commissar who was formerly a professor of marxist Leninist science.

European labour s failure in or the student of the polite on and economic Soone the tragedy of european labour 1il 18-1 my by Adolf Sturmthal i Gol Luncz provides realistic constructive thought on the past and future of european political lab our. The author asks Why the great labour organisations of Europe were powerless to Avert the destruction of european democracy. He sets Forth in answer the convincing fact that labour in Europe was Strong enough seriously to interfere with the smooth working of the existing institutions of society but it was neither sufficiently Strong nor sufficiently constructive to rebuild the key to this stalemate As he describes it of social forces in hitter conflict is that labour preferred to operate As a pressure political group instead of taking up the Burden of democratic leadership. The author is Able to illustrate his argument with cogent examples showing How the socialist parties and the left generally re Tuscq to accept real political responsibility while Europe went through its successive stages of political and economic disintegration. In this connection he finds the classic example of labour pressure group thinking in the Germun social democratic parly.

Clem Lack federation needed for Europe s future peace by Stephen Kelen it Wilt not be enough to beat the German beast Back to his own territory and make him pay for All the monstrous crimes he has committed. The great Allied nations will have to give a definite out line to liberated Europe and not let chaos Rule. We have had our lesson from the last War and we should know what to do. The first world War and the Pence which followed showed the ignorance of certain people mostly politicians who were not acquainted Ullh a realistic View and had not the knowledge to establish a sane and secure future for the world tile old cursed Complex of fron tier problems was everywhere. How Well x remember them in the East and in the West. That inn on the dutch belgian Frontier where a billiard table stood in the Middle of the room one part of it in Holland the other in Belgium. The peas ants had to go from one country to another Over the frontiers if they wanted to plough their soil. And the Little township of Komaromy Komano part of which belonged to Czechoslovakia part to Hungary. The Frontier dispute Between Poland and Czechoslovakia. All created chaos which the germans at the begin Ning of this War. And before used so Well to their own advantage. The peacemakers of the Allied nations after the last War made it easy for Germany to take one Small country after another playing the majorities and minorities All. Over Europe against each other. People who lived on the same soil but claimed different nationality and Lan Guage were hopelessly tangled fight ing with words and weapons and clamouring for Justice on their own Peculiar claims. Educated in hatred in Central Europe and the Balkans in Frontier cities towns and Vil Lages the inhabitants spoke two or three languages perfectly. Each of them might have been their Mother Tongue yet they could not under stand each other and lived with in finite hatred. They were educated and brought up in such an Atmos phere. This education system of hate mongers was left intact after., the last War. How therefore could there have been any Hope of Chang ing the Outlook of the future generations ? there were faint attempts to unite Europe such As Briand s pan european movement but they faded into obscurity after a while. The league of nations did not succeed in educating the nations for peace it Only tried to bind them to Gether. With what results can be seen today. One of the first things the Allied nations have to give liberated Europe is n new objective history Book translated Inlo every language giving a True Light to incidents and educating the youth to think of pc acc not War. Furthermore we give every euro Pean child a second language be sides his Mother Tongue so that he will be Able to understand other europeans because behind the frontiers there is the different Lan Guage. It sounds absurd that people living in the same country cannot understand each other. Knowing the sentiments of euro peans. 1 would say the second Lan Guage has to be a Neutral one. Which will not Hurt their National Pride. European immigrants to Australia Usa and other English speaking countries have proved that it is not difficult for them to learn English even at an advanced age of Len firm and this is the second time in a generation the world Lins had to go to our because a conflict arose in Europe the pretended reason being a minority question. There fore we have to Stop the minor Ity if frontiers remain in Europe minorities will stay too. Only a Central federation of the european nations is the solution. Nations cannot be compelled to stay together but with proper education and guarantees of free Dom and common interest it is possible. Russia Switzerland and the Usa Are examples. Not Long ago a document was published by american and euro Pean scientists providing a basis for a United states of Europe the Only Way in my opinion to ensure peace throughout the world. Of course the question arises should Germany be included in such a federation if so what would happen most Likely the prussian element would gain superiority again in the German Community then slowly penetrate and conquer. Let us not fool our selves the germans will not change overnight just because they Are beaten and Pence is concluded. German influence and plotting would Start everything All Over again. The germans Are Peculiar people. I often wonder whether they ref Tlly want Equality. All through their history As a nation except for a few very Brief periods their de sire has been to dominate or to be dominated. But a generation brought up with an entirely Dif Ferent Outlook from that of to Day could bring them Back to the Community of the european people or for that matter to the world. The United nations in the Mem ment of Victory must have a Well defined plan constructed by scientists not politicians for the peace. To Divide South East and Cen trial Europe into Small states would spell disaster again. Germany is the country which should he divided and the others should he members of the european federa Tion. In this Way we would be Able to gain our objective.
