PAGE TWO THE GUARDIAN, OCTOBER ! 5, 1943 ;i Attitude Of Russia Remains A Puzzle To The Planners For Peace WASHINGTON LETTER By Elmer Murphy Washington. {E)--The prospect for post-war collaboration in the establishment and maintenance of a just and durable peace appears, at least from the Washington viewpoint, to be clearing. There are many difficulties and explosive problems in the offing, which will test the diplomatic resources of the nations involved, but there is reason to believe that the tension which has existed in their relations is slackening. The main question involved in the momentous undertaking of laying out a post-war peace program are--how far will Congress go in accepting such a plan and up- holding the President, and how far Russia will go in cooperating with Great Britain and the United l States? The first question is in process of being answered with the adop- tion of the Fulbright Resolution by an impressive majority the House has stated emphatically its attitude in favor of collaboration in the "creation of appropriate in- ternational machinery with pow- er adequate to establish and main- tain a just and lasting peace" and "participation by the United States therein." This resolution is intended to prevent a breach be- tween Congress and the Admin- istration, such as that which re- sulted in the rejection of the Ver- sailles Treaty and the League of Nations at the close of the First World War. It would forestall opposition by the isolationists who might object to American parti- cipation in any plan looking to the pacification of Europe. Similar action by the Senate to the same end is now in prospect, with the apparent approval of the President. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will report a similar resolution which may not take the same form but will probably have the same effect as the Fulbright Resolution. The decision of the committee to go ahead, after months of delay, in- dicates not only that the President and the Senate committee are in accord but that the hair trigger relations between Great Britain and the United States, on the one! hand, and the Soviet Government i on the other, are becoming more stable. In announcing this decision, Senator Connally, of Texas, chairman of the Senate committee, said that nothing will be done un- til the forthcoming meeting of the diplomatic representatives of the "big three" has been held. This is taken to mean that the question of Russian collaboration is no longer dangerous ground, or, at least, that it is less dangerous than it has been. Whether the United Nations are to go ahead with plans for setting up interna- tional machinery for the establish- ment and maintenance of peace will, apparently, hinge upon Stalin. It is up to him to give the signal. The Senate committee will stand by until the signal is given. Russia is the unknown equation. Whether the Soviet Government will approve the idea of setting up international machinery with faculties for policing the world to prevent aggression is still an un- answered question. There have ii I been intimations that Stalin is in favor of setting up buffer States to protect Russia against German aggression from the Baltic to the Balkans. But he has also said that Russia would favor the re- construction of Poland. Russia's intentions are still inscrutable as Wash'ington views the situation and the obvious hope is that the forthcoming meeting of the dip- lomats--- probably Secretary of State Hull, British Foreign Secre- tary Eden and Russian Foreign Commissar Molotov--will make them more definite. Stalin's re- cent actions lead to the belief that he is moving toward nation- alism as a general policy. His immediate concern is to drive the Nazis from ]Russian soil and he may take the attitude that Rus- sia is strong enough to safeguard her own security without patti-! cipating in any international movement to establish peace on a durable foundation. This, of course, is only one of the problems which will confront the forthcom- ing conference. But the fact that the President and Congress are showing a dis- position to cooperate in setting the stage for the deliberations is! reassuring. The outcome will be l determined by the role Russia in-I tends to play. The possibility that Rome will fall under the .encroaching shadow of war is giving rise to some con- cern in official quarters in Wash- ington. The city which through the centuries has seen the tide of; conflict ebb and flow, is 'in the i pathway of the retreating armies. It may be used as the anchor post of the battle line to which the Nazi divisions appear to be fall- ing back after being dislodged from Naples. If the Germans do elect to make a stand at the ancient city it would be regarded by the allied forces as a fortified city and, for that rea- son, open to attack.

Father Malay called the Knights' attention to the fact that this was one of the most excellent chances that the Catholic men in this state, especially those In Little Rock, would ever have to join in His Excellency's program in Catholic activities and promote Catholic welfare and the interest of all the people in the State of Arkansas to Arkansas enterprises and re- sources. .

Knights marched in a body to attend Mass being recited by Reverend Edward Malay, Chaplain of the Knights Little Rock Council 812. In a strong sermon to the Knights and to those assembled, Father Malay particularly emphasized that the Knights of Columbus is the greatest Catholic organization of men in the world and that it worked hand in hand with the; Catholic Church and therefore, every man regardless of his other affiliations should join the ber of outstanding guests were Knights. He laid particular, present. Among those were the State Deputy, Albert C. Ernst of Pine Bluff and Mr. Harry King, Grand Knight of Pine Bluff Coun- cil. There was a delegation of some 1 present from Memphis, and other parts of the State were well represented including Texar- kana. In the evening a fine buffet supper was served in the club room at 7:30 p.m., and it was an inspiring crowd 'that gathered over at the hall for both cere- monies. This should increase the desire of many of those not be- longing to the Knights of Colum- bus to seek membership in this or- ganization. As a finale to the exercises, Dis-' tries Deputy, R. S. Peters, con- ferred Knighthood on those ac- t cepted in the Order. Below is list of candidates. Henry Massa, George Hart, Russell Smith, Fred- News By J. P.

Imbued with the idea 'that re- ligion is a mode of life based on Divine laws and precepts for the ';piritual sanctification of man here on earth, and the eternal hap- piness hereafter; an infallible code by which the finite realizes his responsibility to the Infinite, and governs his life accordingly, this modernistic concoction must be to us, to say the least, some- what distasteful. This is a splendid subject for the study of your Catholic,action committee, unde tim guidance of your chaplain. It is an example of what we are going to be con: fronted with alter the war, when a tired and weary world is look- ing for either a cure or an opiate, and we should be prepared to pre- scribe the prope.r medicine. Don't swallow everything you find la- beled "Democracy", or confuse a man-made code of ethics, with the Divine laws. You can't mod- ernize truth, or sugar-coat the fact that unless we do penance, we shall all likewise perish. ,i Catholic Union of Arkansas RoY. Anthony Lac1owsky. C.S. Sp.
