That it is of tremendous importance in shaping the course of the war and pointing the way to the peace that is to follow is generally recognized, but its implications have not yet been fully measured. The Agreement, for example, contains this declaration: "We shall lmek the cooperation and active participation of all nations, large and small, whose peoples in heart and mind are dedicated, as are our own peoples, to the elimination of tyranny and slavery, oppression and intolerance. We will wen Merry Christmas CHAS. ACKER CLOTHING CO. Our Best Ads Are Worn By Our Customers 203 Main St. N.

Does the declara- tion apply only to international relationships or to the internal domestic relationships of the peo- ples on behalf of whom it is made? Does it mean that "tyranny and slavery, oppression and intoler- ance" are to be abjured in deal- ing with foreign nations or is it also to be regarded as a rule of conduct for nations in dealing with their own people? Is it to be re- garded as a universal rule, ap- plicable at all times and to all circumstances, or that participat- ing governments reserve the right to choose their own course in the The best of Christmas Greetings to our Many friends and Patrons Little Rock Tent & Awning Co. 1101 Center Phone 2-2209 MERRY CHRISTMAS To all our Friends and Customers we extend Season's Best Wishes BANNER MATTRESS & RUG CO. 920 W.

More specifically, does it mean that Communism is at liberty to follow whatever course it chooses witbin Russia so long as it does not encroach upon the rights of other nations? The Declaration apparently pro- vides an answer to these ques- tions. "From these friendly con- ferences," it goes on to say, "We look with confidence to the day when all the peoples of the world may live free lives untouched by tyranny and according to their 'arying desires and their own consciences." This statement is generally ac- cepted in Washington as it stands and is taken to mean that the promises held out apply to peo- Season's Greetings Lt. Colonel Eugene P.

The im- plication is drawn that the four freedoms, including the freedom of religious worship, are to be enjoyed by all people regardless of the kind of government under which they may live. If this is the case, it would in- dicate that the Communist-ruled government of Russia has under- gone a startling change since the early days of the revolution. It is a matter of historical record ,hat its course was quite the op- posite of that laid down in the i Teheran Agreement. It not only did not observe any of the pre- cepts now formulated in this docu- ment in relation to its own peo- :]e but attempted to encourage the proletarian revolution in oth- er countries. Much water has since gone un- der the bridge. The Soviet Gov- ernment has disbanded the Com- nmnist International. It has re- laxed some of the restrictions it imposed upon the Russian people. Now it has apparently reached an vccord with the United Nations as to the general principles to be fol- lowed in charting the course of SHRADER Makers of Fine Photographs Studio 305 Main Street Tel. 4-1193 Little Rock, Arkansas . .

Communism, as a system of government, still exists and Mar- shal Stalin still rules as dictator, but he essays, rather, the role of r.remier. From all this the infer- ence can be drawn that Russia is ready to march in step with the democratic nalions and restore the freedom of its people which has been in suspense ever since the First World War. Certainly a nation cannot consistently func- tion as a dictatorship in dealing with its own people and as democ- racy in relation to other nations. The declaration of the Teheran Conference are, of necessity, very general. The real test of them will come in putting them into elfect, and only time will prove or disprove Stalin's sincerity of purpose.
