Already Discusses Peace Allies Will Impose on Germany In Event Hitler Is Vanquished (EDITOR'S NOTE--When opinions are expressed in these columns, they are those of the news analyst and not necessarily of this newspaper.) Released by Western Newspaper Unlon. THE WAR: Good Start "7 regret that after 2,000 years of man. kind, Sunday morning should find the prime minister in the position of annoutw. ing that men are on the eve ot living like beasts." Such were the sentiments of John McGovern, leader of parliament's independent labor party. His was the lone dissent that fateful morn- ing when Neville Chamberlain, his peace efforts at a hopeless end, de- clared war on Germany. A few hours later France followed suit and by nightfall most of the British em- pire was also in line. By that time the rest of the world clamored to declare its neutrality. Too busy was Neville Chamber- lain to notice that Barbara Hutton Reventlow fled the romantic isle of Capri, or that American radio spon- sors were about to complain over too many program interruptions for CBS and NBC news bulletins. Nor did he notice that thousands of Lon- don's pet dogs and cats were pain- THE PRIME MINISTER A fine Sunday morning. [essly exterminated lest they prove a burden during evacuation. Said one weeping pet owner: "It's a damn shame. It ought to be Hitler on the end of this leash." Such was the man-on-the-street's background for war. Since 1936 he had accepted its inevitability, yet the awful reality of legalized brute force somehow left him benumbed. He watched without passion as Brit- ain's popular Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden--both foes of ap- peasement -- were given cabinet posts to solidify public sentiment. He slowly built a halo around the head of Prime Minister Chamber- lain, whose frantic umbrella waving of the past two years had at least postponed the war. He may have wept over the news that French troops marched to the front "al- most tenderly," hating war yet fer- vent in their ambition to "smash Hitler and all that he represents." But as such things happen, Brit- ish and French men-on-the-street were whipped into war frenzy the next morning. Steaming to Mon- treal, the liner Athenia was torpe- doed off Ireland with 1,450 refugee mssengers aboard, providing enough provocation to make even the "tender" French soldiers hate Germans in general as well as Der Fuehrer. Paris and London heard Polish civilians were suffering "frightfully" as Adolf Hitler headed for the eastern front and the first major battle, just getting under- way in Upper Silesia. After two days of "fighting," the World war of 1939 had developed into a decidedly unorthodox conflict. British warplanes flew over Nurem- berg but dropped nothing heavier than propaganda leaflets urging the German people to discard Der Fuehrer. Nazi anti-aircraft guns failed to bark back. The same day French soldiers on the Maginot line were reported to have set placards atop their pillboxes, carrying this message to German soldiers in the Chronology led ~o ~r in 1959: AUGUST Zl -- German-Soviet non-aggression pact annotmc_ed, day after trade pact is signed..

SEPTEMBER 1--France, Brit- ain send ultimatums, demanding Germany withdraw troops from Poland. SEPTEMBER g--Receiving no answer, Britain declares war at 1! a. m., France following at 5 West wall: "We won't shoot if you~ don't." , But there was good evidence that, this evident lack of hostilities ap- peared only on paper. The lid of censorship clamped down over both France and Britain, screening what the French war office called "con. facts" on the western front. All three major powers were evidently reluctant to invite revenge by bomb- ing London, Paris and Berlin, yet the Germans admitted British bomb- ers had attacked their fleet at Wil- helmshaven. Where and HOW? If France and Britain bad any cut and dried plan for rushing aid to their beleaguered ally, Poland, they took their time executing it. Best guesses held both democracies were stymied, not only by Hitler but by the silence of other key nations. Germany's West wall and France's Maginot line apparently made the western front a bulwark of stati. cism. Both other routes of getting to Poland were perilous: Via the Baltic. Though British bat- tleships blockaded that sea, a Baltic expedition would be no pushover. Troop and supply ships must fight the Reich's famous and pestiferous submarines, must hold their breath against cunningly placed mines, and must land at Gdynia (Poland's only port) which might be in German hands by that time. Landing against, an enemy has always been a major military problem, and al- ready the Polish corridor has been nipped by German troops. Not only that, but Russia has naval strength in the Baltic and might decide to join the Reich's cause. Via the Mediterranean. Strangely silent as war opened were both of Hitler's erstwhile continental friends, Spain and Italy. The allies hoped Hitler's sell-out to Russian Communism would keep Spain's Francisco Franco and Italy's Benito Mussolini out of the conflict, but no one could tell despite Spain's neu- trality proclamation and Italy's re- sumption of sea traffic. With Medi- terranean neutrality, French-British aid to Poland might go through the Mediterranean and Black seas, land at Rumania's port of Constanta and thence reach Warsaw. But R(~mania, like all Balkan countries, was in- tent on neutrality. At Home In the IT. S., which has watched Europe's wars for almost 200 years, observers were far enough fro.n~ the forest to see the trees. Though President Roosevelt pointed out no American has the "moral right" to capitalize on the conflict, every economist knew it would probably start a boom. "Cash-and-carry" neutrality would make the U. S. support Britain and France, which dominate the seas, opening new markets for farm products and steel. But such a neutrality would also accentuate the already marked &NTHONY EDEN P'/mmm Cburd,/// d,o U. S. sentiment against Hitler, con- founding isolationists by making the nation a virtual silent ally of the allies. Should enough American non-combatants be killed via tor~ pedoes, the flame of 1916 and 1917 might again blot out reason. Hence the President urged the U. ~L tO weigh its facts with care. The End? Next to neutrality, themost moot quesUon among Ardericans con- cerns the eventual end of hostilities. No longer does anyone but a fanat- ical anti-German see justice in the VersaiLles treaty of 20 years ago, which wrung lifeblood from the Reich and placed it in such dire straits that a Hitler was welcomed with open arms. But will Versailles be repeated? Unless Russia Jumps to Ger- many's aid, unless Mussolini and Franco junk their apparent neutral- ity, a war to the end would prob- ably find Germany collapsing under economic stress. Hitler No. I would be vanquished, but can anything short of another "peace without hon- or" (such as Woodrow Wilson sug- gested) keep a Hitler No. 2 from rising out Mth~ ratio? POLITICS: Neutrality Well remembered in Washington is the hot July night Franklin Roose- velt called the senate foreign rela- tions committee into his White House Oval room, discovered he had insufficient votes to force a change in the present neutrality law, and sent the senators away with acknowledgement that full re- sponsibility for the "failure" rested on their shoulders. Even better remembered is the August day at Hyde Park when Franklin Roosevelt tiraded against an adjourned congress, pointing out it had made two enormous "bets": (1) that his lend-spend bill was need- less because private enterprise could do the job alone; (2) that no neutrality revision was needed, be- cause there would be no war in Europe before next January when congress meets again. By September 1, four months be- fore the next normal session, the President might have boasted that congress had already lost one bet. There was war in Europe (See Col. um= One/, which gave Mr. Roose- velt and Secretary of State Cordeil KEY PITTMAN But does the public agree? HUll a severe headache. Under the present neutrality law, they had no alternative but to declare an em- bargo on "implements of war" for belligerents. Just as good a neu- trality, in the eyes of Messrs. Roose- velt, Hull and Sen. Key Pittman, chairman of the senate committee, is the "cash-and-carry" variety un- der which any belligerent able to reach a U. S. port could buy and carry off all the "implements of war" he wanted. Not at all impossible as war broke out was the special congressional session Mr. Roosevelt has long threatened in such an eventuality. But if he thought congress would give him a free hand, indeed, if he thought this free hand might help him keep the U. S. out of war and thus pave the way for a third term in 1940, he was badly mistaken. Gallup polls of public sentiment found such an assumption wrong on two counts: (I) Last April a Gallup poll showed 57 per cent favoring a change in neutrality. By early Sep- tember it had dropped to 50 per cent, indicating the nation was less and less sure that the administra- tion is right. (2) Also in early September, an- other poll showed 71 per cent fa- vored a special congressional ses- sion in case of war, comments re- vealing that the public would feel "safer" that way. Whether this sentiment discredited the Presi- dent's ability, constituted a vote of confidence in his rebellious con- gress, neither, or both, was any- body's guess. Empbatical]y minus political ira. port, however, were the steps Mr. Roosevelt took. Clamped down im- mediately was, the arms embargo. Confiscated were the passports of all Americans returning from Eu- rope, while the state department terminated all U. S. tourist travel to the continent. Belatedly came the official Proclamation of American neutrality. Next day the navy de- partment pondered the advisability of assigning naval convoys to mer- chantmen transporting U. S. citi- zens from war zones. At the same time Attorney General Frank Mur- phy began seeking ways to tighten statutes regulating profiteering dur. ing war time. Stilt to come were new farm policies to deal with the new situation, though an advisory council was being formed. ASIA: About Face Most embarrassed by Russ/a's nomaggre~flon treaty with Adolf Hitler were Communists in other lands, who talked themselves sfl~y trying to Justify tl-~ir new bedfellow,. socialism. Second great~t ember. rassment fell to Japan, which 6nly a few weeks .ago wa~ busy insulting U. S., Brithsh and French interests in the Orient. Confident of her anti. Commitern pact with Italy and Ger- many, still more confident after she signed a trade treaty with Germany, Tokyo suddenly found herself friend- less when the Reich adopted Corn- rade Stalin. Highly nervous was the Japanese press as European hostilities got underway. While war planes con- tinued to bomb Chungking in an ef- fort to close the Chinese war promptly, the Tokyo cabinet sat in extraordinary session. "Splendid isolation" was the ad- vice of Tokyo newspapers, but thero was good evidence Japan was will- ing to turn about and woo for democracies' friendship. --Speaking of Sports--- Betty Jameson, Fairway Queen Popular Winner By ROBERT McSHANE MISS BETTY JAMESON, newly crowned queen of the Ameri- can fairways, occasioned no great upset when she won the National Women's Golf championship recent- ly at Noroton, Conn. In the first place, Miss Jameson is a sturdy, solid sort of a player. When she defeated 19-year-old Doro- thy Kirby of Atlanta in the final round, even the most rabidly Dixie- minded fans admitted that the Geor- gia girl lost to the better shotmak- er. Betty, Miss Kirby's senior by only one year, is recognized as one of the finest players in feminine -anks. This was the second time the two finalists had met. Two years ago, in the southern championship, the pride and joy of Atlanta beat Miss Jameson 3 and 2. The slender Geor- gia girl was just too good. This year, in the National meet, the ta- bles were turned. Long-striding Tex- as Betty walked away from Miss Kirby during the first nine holes, and never gave her a chance to catch up. She was 2 up at the ninth, 4 up at the eighteenth, 2 up at the twenty-seventh. She took the match and championship title on the thir- ty-fourth green with the same score by which her opponent beat her two years ago---3 and 2. Betty Jameson isn't a golfing blaze. In other words, she didn't set the golfing world on fire the first time she picked up a club. Back of her success is the usual story of a champion. She chose the almost certain route to success~hard prac- tice, plenty of it, and patience. The long, grueling hours she spent on a practice tee are reflected in the game she plays today. No golfer's game is always de- pendable. Just as a .350 batter may take a sudden slump, so may a golfer run into trouble. But her BETTY JAMESON game is basically solid. Every shot is played cleanly and.crisply. She has no swinging weakness, and is one of the longest hitters among women golfers. Though she isn't an overnight sen- sation, Betty did get an early start. That's why, at the age of 20, she managed to annex the women's ti- tle. She won the Texas municipal championship when she was 12 years old, the state women's crown at 13, and the Southern at 15. Since that time she has been a major con- tender in numerous other sectional tournaments. One of the most deliberate play- ers in the game, she takes plenty of Ume to survey her He and to hit the ball. Before putting she seems to memorize each blade of inter. vening grass. Miss Jameson is the fourth new champion in four years. Mrs. Glen- na CoIlet Vare's victory in 1935, her sixth, marked the end of the old order. Since that Ume the title has been held by Pare Barton of Eng- land, 19 years old when she won it; by Mrs. Estelle Lawson Page of Chapel Hill, N. C., a newcomer; by Miss Patty Berg of Minneapolis, who, even in her early teens, was acknowledged to be one of the best women golfers in America, and who was unable to defend her title this year beeaase of illness, and now by Miss Jameson. Winning this tournament may be of inestimable value to-the girl's game. It will give her confidence, and will help end a tendency to tighten up at crucial stages, one of her difficulties for the past two years of competition. It looked for a while as if Betty's tenseness might cost her the tourna- ment. Shs had been 4 up at the end of the first 18 holes, marking down a sparkling 78. She looked like an easy winner then, but tight- ened up to such an extent that she couldn't get her tee shots, and some of her approaches, working normal- ly. Miss Kirby almost caught up to her, winning three holes back on the first six of the outgoing round. Her game came back, however. She won the twenty-seventh by soar. ins two beautiful wood shots to the green. She played for pars and got halves on the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth, and won the thirtieth. The competitive temperament will come to her, and that's all she needs. The eyes of Texas can well rest upon Miss Betty Jameson--a real clmmpion, J PHOTOGRAPHY ~FILM DEVELOPINE Eight prints and one an- ~J~a~ largement or 16 ~fints for d~,~ OWL PHOTO SERVICE 113% Broodw~, Fargo.
