Omar BradSey. United States army group commander in Etirope." DREARY NONSENSE Mborehead described Mr. mger- soll's assertion that Field Marshal Montgomery had "failed" at Caen as a "dreary and empty piece of nonsense."

DEWITT MacKENZlE SAYS Rosso-Polish Agreement Significant Ircm Warsaw comes the dis- closure of the scope of a new Russo- Polish commercial agreement. It provides for exchanges of inodities equivalent to during the cominz vear and the Soviet Union probably will get vir- s tually all Poland's big coal output, running to some tons. This trade agreement is signi- ficant because it's one of the main arches in the great economic struc- ture which Russia has been build- ing in eastern Europe and which now is towering, high enough to case a long shadow. Moscow is taking taken over, for the most vast economic prize which Hitler threw 1 away when he decided to try to enslave Europe by force. The Nazi 1 dictator had all of central and eastern Europe and the Balkan uen- insula right in the palm of" his hand economically. Russia is dem- onstrating how it should have been done. The United States and Britain, with their great trade interests, like this development less than a Says Shidehara Must Resign TOKYO.

That protest still hanngs nre but meantime Moscow been making economic hay. Hitler's Dolitico-econoznie domina- tion was based pa the scheme of keeping his vast territory mainly agricultural to provide Germanv with foodstuffs while absorbing the manufactured products of the fatherland. He succeeded in per- fecting this program to the extent that just before the war he was compelling them to accept anything that Germany wished to unload. Hitler was dumping out-rnoded armaments and other unrated sup- plies wholesale. He had even forc- ed the Greeks to take mouth- organs. Just what economic program the Russians intend to pursue is not yefc wholly clear. However, the So- viet in previous five-year plans demonstrated the titanic industrial development which it is capable ol achieving in a short time. On past records it may not be long before Russian industry is capable of meet- ing the demands of its new tjolitico- economic empire. TO MEET HOTEtMEN EDMONTON, April 20. Trade Minister C. E.
