14 the Salt Lake Tribune thursday october 16 1947 editorials thursday oct 16 1947 april 15 1871 Tom cd every morning by Salt Tribune Publ hate co Salt Lake Olty Utah world federation must be achieved by free and equal nations proponent a of immediate world federation Are fond of comparing the nations of this Earth As they arc now constituted with the original colonies grouped along the Atlantic of North America these separate and Independent colonies it is pointed out were Able to Consol Klutz after some disagree ments into u cd Ofallon which became the United states of America Why cant the nations of the world organize the federation advocates ask in a similar manner perhaps the first objection that can to offered a that the nations arc not like the colonies equal and free autonom ies some countries Are free while others for one Rea son or another arc still under the domination of some exterior state or authority it is True that one of the tasks imposed on the United nations is the freeing of these Peoples and the creation of autonomous states under the rules of self determination but that remains As yet an Ideal another dissimilarity Between the world today and the coast of America in colonial Days is the fact that while the world has just emerged Arpra a disastrous War there arc not the same cohesive influences present among nations that existed Between the american colonies they had been drawn together by a Long struggle against a dominating Mother country their interests were quite similar and their need for unification unless they were to be swallowed up again by some Strong european Power was essential and immediate it is True that the world today faces a similar dilemma but the threatening Force is riot As Concrete the Peoples of the various countries and their leaders Are not Able to see the implications so plainly the colonies were Able to sink their differences because of the direct and palpable danger from outside forces it might have been an entirely different Story if the newly liberated colonies had been trans ported suddenly to the surface of the Moon where the danger of further attempts to subjugate them was Remote the nations of the world do it is True face a threat of destruction in the future by a terrible conflict but it will come from them selves not from Mars a sudden threat of in Safion from some other planet might provide a motive for immediate and Complete world federation but until such a peril looms from the sky the unification of nations remains tenuous surrender of sovereignty is much easier to contemplate from a distance than to prac Tice to Point out these facts is not to deny the desirability of a world federation but to emphasize the difficulties and the fallacy of Over simplifying the problem the thirteen colonies of North America were bound More or less closely by the ties of Mutual interest a com Mon language and a common danger and they were finally Able to agree the Peoples of the world today Lack these vital do not recognize the the most important difference Between the colonies in 1776 and the world of 1947 is leadership where Are our modern Washington Jeffersons Franklins and Hamiltons where would Hitler be if u s had stayed out although the question of what would have happened to the world and incidentally Amer Ica if this nation had not entered the second world War is More or less academic after the whole thing is Over there Are some Persona in these United states willing to offer answers Jyl Ost americans while feeling the futility of wars and regretting the belligerent attitude that still pervades this troubled sphere Are convinced that America could not have very Well stayed out certainly there were no voices raised in protest when the United states declared War on Japan the morning after Pearl Harbor John g Winant wartime ambassador to Britain writing in the current Issue of town and country voices the belief that the United states would have been easy prey for the Axis Powers if we had remained aloof from the struggle if we had allowed other nations to go Down before the invader one by one until we stood alone ourselves we would have faced militarized world organized against us he asserts can we believe As we look Back that had we remained Neutral we would have been sufficiently prepared in offence and defense to have sustained War Tyler atomic attack in such a world one of the major Points made by or Winant is the now revealed race Between the United states and Germany to develop the Tatom bomb and he expresses the belief that had we not been at War it is doubtful whether we would have appropriated the huge sums of Noney necessary for its development thus leaving the Field to Germany the initial research on it the bomb was Given to us by the British he writes the interchange of information began in the fall of 1941 and in the summer of 1942 we accepted the obligations of further development and manufacture the British facilities were already overburdened if we had not gone to War ourselves it is very doubtful if we would have been willing to appropriate the huge sums of Money and to allocate the necessary Industrial facilities to produce this revolutionary weapon we know that the germans had begun research in this Field before the War and Al though they were Well behind us when Allied Victory came it is Only sense to realize that they would have organized its development if time had been on their Side they were Well ahead of us As it was in developing radio controlled rocket projectiles or Winant stresses four occasions when the Fate of the Allied Powers Hung in the balance by a slender thread in chronological order these four events were he writes the Battle of Britain lend lease the German attack on Russia the Japa Nese attack on Pearl Harbor the invasion of Russia and the attack on the United states were the great strategic blunders of the Axis Powers these decisions ignored the Progress of science and the inexorable logic of the multiplication table love conquers All in Norse Romance fierce flames of love such As Are generally credited Only tothe latin countries broke out the other Day on the scandinavian Penin Sula where the blood is supposed to course More rationally through the Norse veins the Romance of Torsten Makrell and his Light of love Louise Forsell As reported in the news Dis

norwegian police displayed the sentiment worthy of the Best parisian tradition when they refrained from parting the lovers by putting them in jail the hero of the adventure who stabbed a swedish nurse when she attempted to interfere disposes of the whole thing with the question what wont you do for the Sake of love the lady of the adventure although she has but one Arm and was a narcotic addict apparently has a very special Brand of Charm she was rescued by her Lochinvar Clad in a Nightgown which she was wearing when the couple was apprehended after an air plane flight from Sweden into Norway As Markrell so aptly put it what wont you do for the Sake of love the Public forum Praise for coops editor Tribune the people who Are opposing the incoming collective cooperative movement in the of stores and farms declare that the collective in Ter prone system is just an Experiment and has always in the past proven unworkable these misinformed people do not know that England Rochdale

stated that the last thing any american wanted to see was the downfall of Tho British Empire in answer to an accusation by the British that trip americans were looking Forward to that Day nevertheless from what i have Harrl and rend i would say that nine out of ten americans would like to hoc the end of the British Empire and More than anybody in the world they hate the English since the War ended the English Are criticized con stantly they arc accused of everything this kind of talk amazes me especially in View of the fact that a lot of these people scorn Quito fond of the germans they say How clean the germans Are and How Clever they no at inventing things Etc but of those English How they Hato them Tho Only explanation i can Klee is that in the history books which Are taught to Little

proposed shutdown of the distilling business for go Days if it were really a voluntary action it would be accepted generally As within the province of the government to ask and with in the discretion of the Industry itself to Grant but the impression derived from comments made after the Washington con Ference is that pressure of Anex tra Ordinary nature was used to bring about the voluntary action the government has Ino Legal right to close Down any lawful business if the government can Force a shutdown of one Busi Ness today it can do so with another business tomorrow the Story goes that the governments spokesmen threaten to withdraw the tax augers who Are Federal employees stationed in the distilleries to arrange for the proper auditing Antil Cellec Tion of Federal taxes if these employees Are withdrawn liquor could not be distributed also it is reported that the government threatened to with draw certain Boxcar facilities that Are used in transportation of Grain for the distilleries if the Truman administration is interested in reviving prohibition it will make an interesting political Issue for the return of the Bootlegger is not Likely to be countenanced and the loss of Revenue from taxes May cause a considerable stir As collections from liquor sales run vory High nowadays in the states As Well As in the Federal Treasury the action of the administration in putting pressure on the makers of liquor undoubtedly was prompted by the belief that the Brewers and distillers didst dare make a protest lost they get themselves into a political dilemma from which a Campaign for revival of prohibition Laws might emerge because the situation is novel pressure in peace time in the absence of aay Legal authority the implications of the episode go far beyond the question of whether or not it is a Good thing to curtail ithe production of liquor the Drys will be Happy of course for they will insist that the production should be closed up not Only for 60 Day but 365 Days a year from now on the right Way to get prohibition is to repeal the Twenty first amendment which gave the Power to regulate1 liquor traffic to the several states the wrong Way to Start off

on Universal military training he supported the report that in directly affirms the right of the state to inflict a penalty upon a particular class of pacifists let the record be cleared the report itself affirms that the beliefs of conscientious objectors should be respected and their training program framed with these beliefs in mind it further affirms that such a pro Gram presents no serious difficulties since there Are Many use Ful services which conscientious objectors can Render and have rendered in of emergency the report also Calls attention to the fact that during world War ii conscientious objectors performed outstanding services in Many Fields and that among these objectors were truly great heroes indeed never before in the history of National defense programs has an attitude toward the conscientious objector been so humane and constructive As is found in the report of the presidents advisory commission the commission also recommends that conscientious objectors receive the same Bene fits privileges advantages and safeguards including Cash and dependency allowances As those Given trainees taking Basic military training As to the second class of those refusing
