Eskimos Gamble For Big Dough EDMONTON, April 17. If you'rs small operator stay away from poker games with the Eskimos of the "Western Arcac. That's the advice of Earry Winny. veteran northland aviator, who said Tuesday he once watched a game and left after counting 5150 in the pot. The Sskimos can well afford to gamble for large pots much of the time, said Mr. Winny, because in good years their white fox catches may ECS them any- where irom to apiece. "That is not hay." said the pilot. "And you should see one of those boys come into the post and plank down for a schooner. It i makes the eyes bug out, a bit." If ever there was a time when a conference of the Big Three chiefs of state was badlv needed, it would to be Rght now. Heretofore the Big Three haven't felt is necessary to hold another parley but have been disposed to work out through the tLN However, that decision was based on the assumption that the ppc. scald still remains to be demonstrated. Suspicions and hard words are flying between the Russians on. the one side and the western allies on the other. The Big haven't tabled their intemaiionj.1 policies for ens another to see. With a world-wide realignment of spheres of influ- ence going forward, each of the Big Three is vitally con- cerned. And there must, be un- easiness and even fears on the pan of each until the of the others are Shown. The moment has arrived when policies mast be stated clearly. Taat won't be dene at this juncture in opening meetings of the U.X. The day of open diplomacy is still to come. The quickest and easiest way of raakasg the exchange of confessions, would be for Presi- dent Truman, Prune Minister Sta- lin and Prime Minister Attlee to .si; down tosether. Then maybe the United Nations could down to cases, and the projected meet- ing of the Big Pour foreign min- isters to craw up the Saropesn peace treaties might fulfHI its pur- pose. The current Imbroglio in the se- curitv council over the RUSEO- Iranian issue has given us fair warning of the dangerous differ- ence af viewpoints. Russia believes shs sees mistrust, in the Anglo-Am- erican desire to keep the case on the books until all Red troops have been withdrawn from Iran accord- ing to agreement. What motives are behind Rus- sia's direct actioEis; manoeuvres, and behind Britain's moves, and behind those of the United States? Until each one of the Big Three knows whether the other two are holding something behind their backs there can be uo progress to- wards aeace. The Bis Three chiefs served the world magnificently in the crisis of war. The Big Three chiefs of to- could render an even service to mankind. IffArthur Defends Jap Purge Policies TOKYO.
