mcntarics was on March 21 overriding concern was about what kind of peace we were going to get from the most terrible war ever fought Would the United States play its full part in that peace I wondered I have that first quarterhour commentary before me as I prepare this weekly visit with you Ive spent most of an after noon thumbing through all of the manuscripts which followed on that one launching a oncea wcck series that has never been broken Several times during my time as war correspondent in the European Theater I had to prc vail on the British Broadcasting Co BBC to shortwave my commentaries That was in 1944 A dozen years later I dis patched my coverage of the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne over Australias electronic facili ties During my stay in Russia I took voluminous notes de cipherable only by me but didnt feel safe in preparing my actual copy until I crossed over into the clean fresh air of free Finland I even had the uneas feeling that my room in the Na tional Hotel overlooking the grim walls of the Kremlin had concealed microphones The words included in these one thousand scripts would be sufficient for 25 books of aver age novel size They would however have to be drastically rearranged to be pawned off a salable fiction In retrospect I am myself a little impressed by the wide range of subjects ex plored They range from the love life of the honeybee to cov eragc of the national party con vcntions held since 1924 I wouldnt deny though tha I have had some favorite sub jects traf fie safely has been one o these The vastly improved system for reckoning time in corporated in the World Calen dar has been another shouldnt be surprised to dis cover that Ive touched on each of these topics as many as a score of times pcrhap more than that in the case o safety But the subject to which I havfc returned again and again is world peace All else has seemed dwarfed alongside this awesome topic That first commentary in 1D43 titled Shall it Be Peaci or War was almost a prayc that we avoid the myopic crro which caused us to remain ou of the League of Nations anc thereby condemn the organixa tion and its program to stcrilit and ultimate failure I pleadct for a rejection of those amonj us who were contending tha itnclcr no circumstances shoulc we surrender any sover eignty It was obvious it even more obvious no meaningful world peace or ganization can be set up withou some intelligent delegating o authority by the constituent na tions I spoke as one who wa conversant with all of the com forting but fallacious argument of isolationism and selfcontain ment I had used them all am even invented some of them before I saw the light Understand this was in 1943 The tide of battle had not thci turned in our favor in eithe the Pacific or I ho Eurepear Theaters There was no indica tion what time or in what fonr peace would come It was in a setting that I wrote m Turn to 2 Plcast A Marine Corps aviator spent1 Mason Citys Aviation Day on he ground
