Neithes tire senate N,j'a Deal leader* nor the ex-isolationists think so.
Certain sn >ng la a deal -erie tor? are auspu .ous even ol the size of the vole. They think (and --ay privately) that popular American earnestness and unanimity in demand for any reasonable action to make world peace a likely pro; pest hereafter drew. nearly all element- into support OI the generalities ai the Moscow agreements.
When the time come.-, for definite action unde: those agreement.'' and when the boys come home, however, they fear th- possibility of another quick turn-ov« r of popular opinion, or. ai least, of isolationist viewpoint Say for instance the R i- Ians take P land, for whose prole lion technically, th" British de-c la I cd war on Germany- What'will be me popular post-war opinion of tins country?
TIU' administration already is moving to A.ird off ttili prospect of any popular turnover such as followed the las? ^ar by doing everything it can to i ibiict/* Mr Huh • i< ■ e in Moscow anti promote immediate American sympathies toward Russia.
