PAGE TWO Helena THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 1 7, 1943 Businessmen Ask Patronage (f St. Mary's Parishion Italy's Fall Brings New Phase In Study Of Post War Program WASHINGTON LETTER By Elmer Murphy Washington. (E)--The collapse of Italy has been hailed in Wash- ington, logically enough, as a victory of major importance in. the world war but the rejoicing is tempered by the realization that it is an outer bastion of the European fortress which is yet to fall. It is not alone a military victory. It marks the collapse of Fascism-- the particular kind of Fascism which had its birth in Italy which was linked with German Nazism. Although there is much more to be done, it also proves the strength of democracy as a practical work- able system of political admin- istration, which can sustain it- self against the onslaughts of totalitarianism. The sum of democracy is rising but for the dictatorships it is setting. The third partner of the dictatorships has passed out of existence. In that respect, the Italian cam- paign is more than a military vic- tory. It has helped to clear the air of the miasma of Nazi and, Fascist ideology--the pernicious theories that force is its own justification and that the State is supreme over the individual. But it also is evidence of the fact that the aims of the Allied Powers will not be completely achieved by winning battles and beating the Axis powers to their knees. When that is done much more will have to be done to give effect to "the four freedoms." Democracy must be implemented and democratic administrative mechanism must be set up. It will not be enough for the victorious powers to foregather at a peace table and tell the vanquished what they may not do and what territories or spheres of influence they may have. A constructive peace will have to be devised ap- plicable not only to the peoples who have been ground under the Axis heel but the peoples of Axis countries who have been reduced to slavery by their own masters. These questions have undoubt- edly been much in the minds of the Allied leaders and have been the text of the deliberations that have been going on in Washing- ton. A temporary administrative mechanism has been planned and is ready to be set up in Italy-- the first step to be taken in the the enemies of democracy. Fasc- ism is now out. The ousting of Mussolini, marked its collapse. The real menace is now Nazism, the trained armies of Germany. The Allied Powers must now take over the job of setting up a temporary military administra- tion and, later, a permanent gov- ernment must be erected. There are intimations that the Italian situation will be consid- ered at a forthcoming meeting of iepresentatives of the three major Allied Powers--the United States, Great Britain and Russia,--pos- sibly Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. What Russia may have to say concerning the kind of tom- I porary government that is to be set up is still a question. Nor is it known what attitude the Com- munist government of Russia may take toward a democratic govern- ment in Italy. Whatever it may be in theory, Communism, in practice, is more like Fascism than Democracy. The passing of Fascism may mark the rise of the curtain upon world reconstruc- tion and reveal the roles the Al- lied Powers are to play.

He also touched on the part the Knights of Columbus will play in the Post-War World. We look forward to further in- spiring talks from our beloved Chaplain.
