He is without doubt oneof the most dynamic figures in themusic world today. The way in whichhe composed his cantata reads al¬most like a fairy tale. The cantatawas written as part of a huge workcalled “A Day of Music at Plon.”As the title indicates this work waswritten about Plon, a little town inHolstein, where an entire day wasdevoted exclusively to music. InPlon there is a large State school forgirls and boys who, thanks to thealmost fanatical activity of their mu¬sic teachers, are all taking music les¬sons in addition to their regular sub¬jects. There are about 300 studentsin the school and they have a largechorus, an orchestra of about fiftyplayers, several chamber musicgroups, and other groups that playrecorder, an ancient instrumentwhich has become very popular inGermany in recent years because itis so easy to learn to play. At therequest of several Plon students,Hindemith came to visit their school.He was so impressed by their whole¬hearted enthusiasm for music thathe promised that he would come backand spend several days with them inpreparing for a music festival inwhich the entire school would par¬ticipate.Help.s With FestivalThe Festival took place on threebeautiful days in May. Hindemithwas kept busy supplying music to thevarious groups rehearsing in everycorner of the school grounds.

Hegives the Bituminous Coal Board andthe Interstate Commerce Commissionas examples of what it is possible forthe government to do. He says thereare still imperfections in these bod¬ies, however.The opposite view will be repre¬sented by Spencer, who says that gov¬ernment control of prices is imprac¬tical because of the speed with whichconditions in the financial worldchange. He cites the case of theTransportation Commission of NewYork as an example of his point.This body had been set up to deter¬mine what price would be fair for thetransportation companies to charge.After ten years it produced a resultwhich has proved wrong. The price itset was too low: the transportationcompanies lost money and had to besubsidized with Government funds.Rose Carries PleaTo Lift EmbargoWill Ask President and Congressmento Remove Arms Ban Against LoyalistSpain.__ ROBERT SEDLAKAdele Rose, Maroon editor and former chairman of the ASU,flies to Washington late this afternoon to plead personally withPresident Roosevelt and Congressmen to lift the arms embargoagainst Loyalist Spain so that European democracy may have afighting chance to survive.She bears with her the petitions of thousands of Universityand Chicago high school students asking President Roosevelt touse his tremendous inflluence in doing away with the arms banand asking Congress for immediate legislative action.Stimson FavorsLifting EmbargoAgainst SpainFrom a conservative and au¬thoritative source there camethis week a stern denunciationof the Embargo Act. Henry L.Stimson, secretary of state inthe cabinet of Herbert Hoover,openly demanded that the Unit¬ed States lift its embargoagainst Spain, and claimed thatthe President has the right todo that immediately.In a three thousand word let¬ter to the “New York Times,”reported in full in the Daily Ma¬roon Stimson explained in detailhis position which included thefollowing high points:“The republican governmentof Spain (commonly termed theLoyalist Government) has beenrecognized as the true govern¬ment of Spain by our govern¬ment ....“Spain is entitled to expectfrom another government whichhas recognized it as a friendlyneighbor in the family of na¬tions, the right of self-defenseagainst any future rebellionswhich may challenge its au¬thorityThe results have shown howfutile as well as dangerous novelexperiments in international lawcan be. The United States on itspart has abandoned a traditionalpolicy to which for a centuryand a half it had carefully ad¬hered as a meaiis of protectingthe peace and stability of na¬tions which, like itself, preferredto live not armed to the teeth.It is likely to rue the day whenthat principle was abandonedwhen it consented to a new pre¬cedent which may hereafterweight the scale in favor a mili¬taristic and thoroughly armednation.To an extent which probablyfew anticipated, that LoyalistGovernment has succeeded inde-fending itself not only againsta surprise attack by its own re¬bellious army but against a pow¬erful combination of aggressiveinterveners by land and sea andair. By so doing it has furnishedstrong evidence of its virilityand of the fact that it must besupported by the great mass ofthe people within its territory ...If this Loyalist government isoverthrown, it is evident nowthat its defeat will be solely dueto the fact that it has been de¬prived of its right to buy fromus and other friendly nations,the munitions necessary for itsdefense. I cannot believe thatour government or our countrywould wish to assume such a re¬sponsibility.”Fraternities PledgeFreshmen Todayj Fraternity men opened their! eyes this morning from a fitful butnevertheless restful sleep.

ButMadrid still lasts, Valencia stilllasts. Barcelona may be gone,but the will and the spirit of theSpanish people now centers inMadrid, which is better fortifiedthan Barcelona, which has amore sturdy morale, a strongerorganization, a more indomitablewill. Madrid can stand if theSpanish people have the armsto defend it. And from Madridan offensive can go out whichwill win back the whole coun¬try.States, all alone, cannot help.But at least England and Francewill no longer be able to hidebehind the excuse of America’sinaction. At least the true demo¬crats in those countries will beable to hold up their heads againand force out of power theweaseling Chamberlain and Dal-adier. And the prestige of fas¬cism will suffer a telling blow.Spain alone would not con¬cern us; but Spain as an ex¬ample of the world-wide defaultof the democracies, of the com¬ing end to freedom and decency,j must concern us. We cannot seti aside the sure prediction thati if Spain falls, within a yeari European fascism will be sweep-1 ing through South and Central: America and pounding at our! doors. We cannot set aside the• sure prediction that if Spain' falls, England and France willI not be able to defend themselvesI against Germany and Italy, and! must live on charitable crumbsj from the fascist world-masters.I There must be an end toj America’s talk-much, do-noth¬ing policy. If we will not believewhat reason tells us, at least wecan heed a voice from Amer¬ica’s past. On March 23, 1775, jPatrick Henry said, “They tell iius, sir, that we are weak—unableI to cope with so formidable anadversary. But when shall we bestronger? Will it be the nextweek or the next year? Will itbe when a British guard shallbe stationed in every house?Shall we gather strength by ir¬resolution and inaction? Shallwe acquire the means of effect¬ual resistance by lying supinelyon our backs and hugging thedelusive phantom of hope untilour enemies shall have boundus hand and foot?Wisconsin Students Show MostPromise in Big Ten Art ExhibitYou say that it is inhuman¬itarian to sell arms, that theweapons of destruction shall notbe given out to the world by apeaceful America. But you sendscrap iron to Germany, cottonto Italy, knowing that therethey are turned into war mater¬ials and given to Franco’s forces.And you do not think it inhu¬manitarian to leave an innocentpeople helpless against these“The battle, sir, is not to thestrong, alone; it is to the vigil¬ant, the active, the brave.’’By HERBERT GROSSBINGThe Big Ten art show hangs in theArt building’s specially constructedexhibition room where it will remainthrough February 11.The student show, or any show,may be judged from two points ofview’: how well the artist learned toconstruct technique, and what talenthe shows as an individual who inter¬prets nature in his owm way. Need¬less to say the best artist does both,but in the young artist we look firstfor the fresh or personal point ofview’. Something which obviouslydoes not come from technique orlearning.With this in mind we’ll have tohand the palm to the University ofWisconsin contingent for filling bothrequirements to a more integrateddegree than any in the exhibit. “Wis¬consin Landscape’’ by John Dick ofthat school portrays admirably withan individual powdery technique, adeeply felt indigenous pastoral scene.He seems to have achieved the Dutchpainters’ feeling for the countryscene, translated with the modernfeeling for color. “Black Bridge,’’ aw’ater color by John Ellestad of thesame school, gives an almost equallygood impression in that demandingmedium. It is fresh, full of charm¬ing spirit, and skillfully done.Northwestern ParticipatesThe paintings offered by North¬western students are frankly labeledfirst year work. But they wisely pre¬sent three boldly colored and ener¬getically executed canvasses each ofwhich has an individual behind itwho should emerge as an artist offruitful production. Jack Metcaff haspainted some Van Goghish trees, la¬beled “Agigtato,” which neverthelessexpress in a yellow’ tone the mysticalaspect of a naked tree in a barelandscape. Bill Kolb of Northwes¬tern also uses the expressionistictechnique to portray a lamp post ef¬fect in bold color. With a bit moreknow’ledge of his craft and a devel¬opment of subtlety this lad shouldsome day be agonizing Mrs. FrankLogan, patron saint of the Art Insti¬tute, and her program for sanity inart.No one I am sure will have anytrouble in knowing that Mildred Fitz¬gerald represents the University ofIowa, where Grant Wood heads thedepartment. In fact she might getMr. Wood to sign her “AbandonedChapel,’’ and it would fetch a fineprice without doubt.Our own Mr. Rogers has probablythe most mature painting in theshow’, and the most beautiful color,but why has he split his compositiondiagonally into two canvasses? Thecanyons of Colorado City seem tohave overcome his artistic canons.But his difficult combinations of richblue greens and red is a delightfulaccomplishment.TravellingBazaarMy God! I’m in mold!

May her mission becrowned with success. But the causeof democracy is not only to be de¬fended on an international scale, noreven only on a national scale, but al¬so in all forms of group organizationdown to the lowest. And surely theorganization of scholars and studentsin this and other universities in theland is not the lowliest. Adele Rosewas appointed a member of a committee representing the students of thisUniversity which was intended tocombat certain measures of antidemocratic tendency on the part ofthe University administration, viz.,the gag rules. That committee wasformed early in the first quarter.Whatever it has done to date, it hasnot succeeded in rescinding the rules.I submit that the first duty of allmembers of that committe, includingAdele Rose as well as myself, is toachieve that end.To my mind the biggest problemfacing American students today, quastudents, is the undemocratic consti¬tution of the American university.The relationship between student anduniversity is complex and unique,compared with other organizations.But the privileges of the student canbe defined in each aspect of this mul¬ti-sided relationship in terms of prin¬ciples of democracy, and in each caseare violated. I submit that inasmuchas the students of the University ofChicago appointed a committee to ac¬complish a specific task in this battlefor democracy in the University, thatcommittee has to date shirked itsduty.Yours sincerely,Allen M.

Atthis moment, it is the moral value ofsuch an action which is significant.and significant, not alone for thoseSpaniards who are fighting in thelast ditch to save their freedom, butalso for the millions in England andFrance who will be heartened by theassurance of our support.The President and the Congressare created to express the will of theAmerican people.

CHICAGOTHE DAILY MAROON. FRIDAY. JANUARY 27, 1939Page ThreeText of Stimson Letter on EmbargoFollowing is the text of the letterof Henry L. Stimson, former Sec¬retary of War and later Secretaryof State, recommending the liftingby the President of the embargoagamst the sale of arms and muni¬tions to the Spanish Loyalist Govern¬mentsTO THE EDITORThe New York Times.I have been asked for my viewsconcerning the present situation inSpain and the duties of our owngovernment and people toward thatsituation. The basic reasons whichgovern my views consist of simple andlong-standing principles of Americaninternational conduct. They do not inthe least depend upon ideological con¬siderations which may or may not beinvolved in the conflict. On the con¬trary, they depend solely on the in¬terest of our own country towardthat conflict and its possible results.First: The republican governmentof Spain (commonly termed the Loy¬alist Government) has been recog¬nized as the true government ofSpain by our government. The samedecision has been reached by GreatBritain, France, and a number ofother countries. The principles uponwhich our government acts in mak¬ing such a decision have been wellunderstood since the beginning of ourhistory. They do not depend in anydegree upon the internal structure ofthe government recognized or thedomestic theories which control itsrelations to its citizens, whether theybe Communist, Fascist, monarchicalor democratic.Spain’s Own AffairSuch ideological internal relationsare exclusively a domestic matter forSpain itself, into which foreign gov¬ernments should not intrude. That isa fundamental rule of internationalrelations. Thomas Jefferson ex-pre.ssed it well as long ago as 1792:“We certainly cannot deny to oth¬er nations that principle whereon ourown government is founded, that ev¬ery nation has a right to govern it¬self internally under whatever formsit pleases and to change these formsat its own will; and externally totransact business with other nationsthrough whatever organ it chooses,whether that be a king, convention,assembly, committee, president, orwhatever it may be.” (Jefferson toPinckney: Works, Vol. Ill, page 500.)When our govrenment several yearsago through our President determin¬ed that the Spanish Government inquestion had control of the admin-instrative machinery of the Statewith the general acquiescence of itspeople and was able and willing todischarge international and conven¬tional obligations, that Spanish Gov¬ernment became to us and all ourcitizens the true Government of Spainfor the purpose of our respective in¬ternational relations. By this decisionwe admitted it as a member of thefamily of nations which we recognizedas our friendly neighbors in the worldand vested it with all of the conven¬tional rights and privileges which weaccord to such friendly neighbors.Right to Friendly AssistanceSecond: One of the most importantof these rights which a State likeSpain is entitled to expect from an-otner government, which has recog¬nized it as a friendly neighbor in thefamily of nations, is the right of self-defense against any future rebellionswhich may challenge its authority.History shows that almost everyState, including our own, sooner orlater in its history has to meet withthe hazard of domestic strife withinits borders including an armed re¬bellion against its authority. In sucha case the duty which the neighborStates owe to the member of thefamily whose authority has beenchallenged is perfectly well settled.It is that such a nation has the ex¬clusive right to the friendly assist¬ance of its neighbors by being per¬mitted to purchase in their marketsthe necessary supplies and munitionsfor the purpose of putting down therebellion; and further that no simi¬lar assistance shall be given to therebels who have challenged its au¬thority. Any such assistance to therebels would be deemed a most un¬friendly act—even a cause of war—against the mother State.Third: No nation has gone furtherthan the United States in sustainingthis general right of a nation againstwhich civil strife or rebellion hasbroken out. During our own greatCivil War our Federal Governmentinsisted that it alone had the right topurchase w'ar materials in the worldat large and made vitally neededpurchases of war materials abroad.“Had England undertaken to em¬bargo arms to both the North andthe South, the North might have lostthe war.” Borchard, “Neutrality forthe United States,” page 337.In the case of rebellions among itsneighbor States, the United Stateshas acted upon the same principleand has not only given assistance totheir governments, but has refraineditself from giving and has preventedits nationals from giving aid to therebels. By the Joint Resolution of1912, applying to this hemisphereand somewhat more widely extendedin 1922, our President has been au¬thorized to levy embargos againstsupplying arms or munitions to reb¬els against the authority of friendlyStates. To mention only a few cases,such embargos have been levied byour government in the case of re¬bellions against Cuba in 1912, Mexi¬co in 1912, 1923 and 1929, Nicaraguain 1921 and Brazil in 1930. In theseand other cases we have recognized itas our duty to assist the governmentand to prevent assistance from ourmarkets reaching rebels against thatgovernment.Furthermore, in 1928 we executedand in 1930 ratified a general con¬vention promulgated by the SixthPan-American Conference betweenthe American Republi« and coveringgenerally this subject of the mutualrights and duties of States in theevent of civil strife. This conventionprovided;“Article 1. The contracting Statesbind themselves to observe the fol¬lowing rules with regard to civilstrife in another one of them:« * * «“3. To forbid the traffic in armsand war material, except when in¬tended for the government, while thebelligerency of the rebels has notbeen recognized, in which latter casethe rules of neutrality shall be ap¬plied.”This treaty made the previouslyexisting traditional practice a bind¬ing rule of conduct among its signa¬tories.Maintenance of RightsFourth: During the great war Sec¬retary of State Lansing took occa¬sion to point out why the UnitedStates was so insistent on maintain¬ing this right of a government tobuy arms and munitions in the mar¬kets of the world whether in casesof domestic strife or of general war.As he pointed out, it was becauseour nation, being a peaceful and gen¬erally unarmed nation, would havefound any other rule of law mostdangerous to its own safety.“Secretary Lansing declared thatthe United States had from the foun¬dation of the republic * ♦ * advo¬cated and practiced unrestrictedtrade in arms and military supplies,because it had never been the policyof the nation to maintain in time ofpeace a large military establishmentor stores of arms and amniunitionsufficient to repel invasion by a wellequipped and powerful enemy, andthat in consequence the United Stateswould, in the event of attack by aforeign power, be * * * seriously ifnot fatally embarrassed by the lackof arms and ammunition. * * * ‘TheUnited States has always’ (Lansingsaid) ‘depended upon the right andpower to purchase arms from neu¬tral nations in case of foreign at¬tack. This right which it claims foritself, it cannot deny to others.’ Hecontended that a nation whose policyand principle it was to rely upon in¬ternational obligations and interna¬tional justice to preserve its politicaland territorial integrity, might be¬come the prey of an aggressive na¬tion whose policy and practice it wasto increase its military strength dur¬ing times of peace with the designof conquest, unless the nation at¬tacked could * * * go into the mar¬kets of the world and purchase themeans to defend itself against theaggressor.” — Hyde. “InternationalLaw Chiefly as Interpreted and Ap¬plied by the United States,” Vol. 2at page 752.Belligerency Not RecognizedFifth: Thus under the rules of in¬ternational law governing cases ofinsurrection against a governmentwhose status has been re90gnized byits neighbors, the government itselfis the only party which will be per¬mitted to purchase arms and ammu¬nition abroad, and any assistance tothe rebels would be a violation ofsuch international law, an unfriendlyact against their government. Untilthe insurrection has progressed sofar and successfully that a state ofbelligerency is recognized by the out¬side nations, no rules of neutralityapply. The only party recognized aslawful is the mother government atwhich the insurrection is aimed. Inthe case of Spain no such belliger¬ency has been recognized by us or byGreat Britain or by France. Undersuch circumstances any attempt totreat the situation as embodying theduty of neutrality is based upon acomplete misconception of the rulesof international law. Professor Ed¬win Borchard in his study on “Neu¬trality and Civil Wars,” 31 AmericanJournal of Law, 304,“International law requires theUnited States to treat the electedgovernment of Spain as the lawfulgovernment of Spain and, until thebelligerency of the Rebels is recog¬nized, as the only government entitledto receive the assistance of the UnitedStates in suppressing armed opposi¬tion * * * The embargo against Spainwas thought to be neutrality legisla¬tion, but it seems more likely theprecise opposite.”Experiments Reversed PracticeSixth: The foregoing was the well-established practice of the worldgoverning rebellions which occurredin the family of nations, when onJuly 19, 1936, the present revolt inSpain broke out against the republi¬can government which we had recog¬nized. Instead of following the rulesof law which had theretofore beenestablished with practical unanimity,a series of novel experiments wereattempted on both sides of the At¬lantic. These have resulted in a com¬plete reversal of the pre-existing lawand practice.In Europe the conflict in Spain ex¬cited apprehension for fear that oth¬er nations might either be dragged inor voluntarily come in to fish introubled waters. The totalitarianStates, both Fascist and Communist,were apprehended to be aggressiveand likely to intervene. In fact, rum¬or attributed to them a share in theinstigation of the Franco revolt. Ac¬cordingly in September, 1936, underthe leadership of Great Britain, aspecial agreement of non-interventionwas engineered among the neighbor¬ing nations to Spain in the hope thatthe conflict might be localized and thedanger of its spread prevented. Thefirst thing to be said about thisagreement was that it was a com¬plete abandonment of a code of prac¬tice which the international worldhad adopted through preceding agesas the best hope of achieving thesame purpose and minimizing thespread of disorder. International lawis the product of the efforts and ex-Miss Mary Gilson, a member ofthe Economics Department, sup¬plied the text of this letter fromthe N. Y. Times and paid for itsprinting.perience of the nations aimed to pro¬mote peace and stability.In the second place, however wellintentioned it may have been, an ex¬periment based upon the promises ofthe totalitarian States w’as morewishful than sensible. Those Stateshad already progressed too far alongthe primrose path of treaty violationand the non-intervention agreementat once became a mockery and a fail¬ure. The only nations which have ob¬served the non-intervention agree¬ment have been the ones from whomthe danger of intervention was notapprehended—Great Britain andFrance. Italy and Germany, whileostensibly accepting the obligation ofthe covenant, have continuously andflagrantly violated it. At the presentmoment Italy is openly avowing itseffective participation on the side ofFranco. She is openly pushing everyeffort to bring the strife to a conclu¬sion in favor of the rebels.Thus the non-intervention agree¬ment has simply resulted in closingto the recognized government of Spainthose world markets for supplies andmunitions which under the law of na¬tions she had a right to depend uponand to have open to her purchases.It has not prevented supplies fromgoing to the rebels who, under inter¬national law, have no right to them.Not only have the rebels been receiv¬ing arms and munitions, but, as ev¬erybody now knows, they have ac¬tually received organized Italiantroops in iarge quanities conductingfor them a very large share of thefighting.Our Interests RemoteSeventh: On our side of the At¬lantic there has been even less ex¬cuse for a departure from law, forwe have been far remote and our in¬terests were very unlikely to beseriously affected by the war inSpain. If we had continued our for¬mer practice and permitted the gov¬ernment of Spain to make purchasesin this country of arms and muni¬tions, as we had done in the manycases which I have cited, there wasno real danger that those purchaseswould have aroused any resentmentagainst us from which we need haveany apprehension. As a matter offact, our government has continuedunder our Silver Purchase Law tomake large purchases of Spanishsilver from the Spanish Governmentwhich undoubtedly have assisted thatgovernment in its conduct of the war.Such purchases have not even attract¬ed attention in the press, let alonearoused hostile acrimony against us.nitude or is being conducted undersuch conditions that the export ofarms * ♦ * would * * * endanger thepeace of the United States.” On thesame day. May 1, 1937, the Presidentimposed the present embargoagainst Spain.Traditions AbandonedEighth: the results have shownhow futile as well as dangerous nov¬el experiments in international lawcan be. The United States on itspart has abandoned a traditional pol¬icy to which for a century and a halfit had carefully adhered as a meansof protecting the peace and stabilityof nations which, like itself, pre¬ferred to live not armed to the teeth.It is likely sorely to rue the daywhen that principle was abandonedand when it consented to a newprecedent which may hereafterweight the scale in favor of a mili¬taristic and thoroughly armed nation.On the other hand, the progress ofevents during the past two years inSpain has served to demonstrate thevitality of the Loyalist Governmentand thus has tended to confirm thecorrectness of our government’s de¬cision when we recognized that Loy¬alist Government as representativeof the people of Spain.To an extent which probably fewanticipated, that Loyalist Governmenthas succeeded in defending itself notonly against a surprise attack by itsown rebellious army, but against apowerful combination of aggressiveinterveners by land and sea and air.By so doing it has furnished strongevidence of its vitality and of thefact that it must be supported by thegreat mass of the people within itsterritory. Starting without an armyof its own, forced to organize andtrain its raw militia, conspicuouslylacking in the powerful modern guns,planes and other munitions whichhave been available to its opponents,it has for many months been puttingup a most surprising and gallant de¬fense against opponents who havehad every advantage in the way ofland and naval organization and whoare illegally aided both on land andon sea by powerful organized forcesfrom Italy and Germany.If this Loyalist Government isoverthrown, it is evident now thatits defeat will be solely due to thefact that it has been deprived of itsright to buy from us and otherfriendly nations the munitions nec¬essary for its defense. I cannot be¬lieve that our government or ourcountry would wish to assume sucha responsibility.In any event, we should have beenfollowing the law and could havegiven critics a perfectly good reasonfor our action. To assert that such acourse of self-respecting adherenceon our part to a historic policy of in¬ternational law could have dragged usinto war in Europe does not speakwell for the balanced judgment ofthose who make the assertion.But our Congress, not altogetherunnaturally, may have been influ¬enced by a desire to support the ob¬jectives of the Non-interventionAgreement which had just been en¬tered into in Europe, and at thattime Congress may not have fore¬seen that this agreement would notbe faithfully observed. Congress maynot have foreseen that instead of be¬coming a means of equal treatmenttoward both sides of the combatantsin Spain, it would become an engineof glaring favoritism toward oneside alone—the Rebels—and that thelegitimate Spanish Government whichby law was the only side entitled tobuy arms would eventually becomethe only side which was unable tobuy arms. At all events our Congressin January, 1937, passed a tempo¬rary resolution applying an embargoto the sale of arms to both the com¬batants in Spain. And on May 1,1937, this temporary resolution wassuperseded by Public Resolution No.27. By the language of that resolu¬tion the exportation of munitions toany foreign State was prohibited ona proclamation by the President that“a state of civil strife exists * * *and that such civil strife is of a mag¬Power With PresidentNinth: In short, I have come tothe conclusion that the embargo im¬posed under the resolution of May 1,1937, should be at once lifted by thePresident. By its terms I believe hehas the power to take such action.The change in the international sit¬uation during the past two yearswould justify such action by him.The embargo, which by the terms ofthe law authorizing it was intendedas a protection against conditionswhich would endanger the peace ofthe United States, is now shown bythe events of the past two years tobe itself a source of danger to thatpeace. Any danger that may cometo the people of the United Statesfrom the situation in Spain wouldarise not from any lawful sale ofmunitions in our markets to the Gov¬ernment of Spain, but from the as¬sistance which our embargo hasgiven to the enemies of Spain. It isthe success of the lawless precedentscreated by those enemies which wouldconstitute our I'eal danger. There isno reason why we should ourselvesfacilitate and accentuate that danger.There is still less reason why weshould violate c c own historic poli¬cy to do so. The prestige and safetyof our country will not be promotedby abandoning its self-respectingtraditions, in order to avoid the hos¬tility of reckless violators of interna¬tional law in Europe.HENRY L.
