Mussolini calls the Greeks "tricky and

mining of those words.

It is related that a plumber's helper was

Since Hitler has extended his war zone
all over Europe, it will make it easier for the
Royal Air Force to hit a legitimate target.
For more reasons than one we'd rather

the guy who perfected the machine gun.

The Nazi Program
One does not have to turn to the "Red"
and "White" papers released by the Dies
committee to determine Nazi procedure or
appraise the boldness of German agents in
this or any other country. Hitler and his
spokesmen have set forth their plans in un
Many of the foremost Nazi leaders have
repeatedly proclaimed their plan to draw all
persons of German origin throughout the
world into a world crusade for Naziism.
Claiming that there are 30,000,000 Ameri
cans of German origin here, their aim is to
transform enough of these into aggressive,
nationalistic Germans to break up national
unity in the United States. Right now they
are claiming that eight million of that num
ber are already committed to the German
And to understand that this is definite
ly the purpose of the present German gov
ernment one has only to turn to Hitler who
wrote in "Mein Kampf": "The German
Reich as a State must embrace all Ger
mans," and to Hermann Goering, Hitler's
side-kick, and second most influential Ger
man leader who is even more definite when
he says: "The German nation, conceived in
its complete unity consists of the folk
comrades in the home lands, along with the
almost 1,000,000 Reich Germans abroad,
and the many million people of German
blood in Europe and over sea. I hereby pro
claim this so that not only Germans but the
whole world may hear and understand. Pro
tection of German kultur and German ffilk
unity is the foremost mission of the Reich.
Every German in the homeland must help
us give the German world abroad what it
has a right to expect." •
That explains why time and again Hitler
has carried his armed forces into neighbor
states to "protect" German nationals. It
was a convenient excuse, to be sure, to ex
tend the Nazi power and influence, but it
was even more than that: it was part of the
blue-print which has been seared into the
German brain until they really believe that
it is their mission to rule, no matter how
foul the means. ,
Goering declares that "It is a foremost
mission of my Fuehrer and the Nazi State
to protect Germans in the United States."
Even as he has protected them in other
countries, we reckon. As he is protecting
them through a blood purge in Rumania,
It is to the credit of some Germans who
have known something of the freedom in
this Country, that they will have none of
this philosophy. But there are countless
others who not only subscribe to it, but ac
tually are using their time and talents to
bore from within. It is high time we *ere
getting hard-boiled with this tribe. If they
don't like our ways, they should skedaddle,
and if they are reluctant to move out, they
should be given a shove. Why be mealy
mouthed about it, when Hitler and his gang
speak so boldly of their program.
That "New Order"
Hitler's successful grouping together of
small neighbor nations under the so-called
Rome-Beriin-Tokyo axis, would be impres
sive, as it is meant to be, were it not for the
fact that they have enrolled reluctantly and
under pressure that left nothing to their
own preference in deciding. And so the
"new order' that he professes to crave for
Europe, is only the child of his imagination.
And some of these days the child will rise
up and smack him in the face.
Agreements are not sacred to Hitler.
They are adhered to only so long as adher
ence serves his own particular purpose.
There is plenty to indicate that there is
nothing binding in the original German-
Italian agreement. Mussolini has not been
faring so well in Greece and there is reason
to believe Hitler is not displeased with
Italy's failure: It makes Mussolini that
much more indebted to Adolf if finally the
latter must come" to his rescue. Likewise it
is obvious that Japan will get nothing out of
the partnership unless it be the advantage
of keeping Uncle Sam's eyes and hands
turned the other way while Nippon grabs
everything that is not nailed down in the
As for Europe itself, no one knows bet
ter than Hitler that the small neighbor na
tions have signed the axis agreement from
compulsion and not from choice: That the
Poles, the Danes, the Norwegians, the
Dutch and the Belgians are not willing but
reluctant members of his "new order." They
have submitted to axis pressure, yes, but
only because there was nothing else for
them to do. They along with Hungary and
Rumania were already under the German
yoke. And that will apply to Bulgaria,
France and Spain, if and when they are
brought into the orbit.
In all of these countries the people are
patiently waiting for the day of their de
liverance —and the patient waiting may not
be good for what ails Hitler. If left to their
own choice, most of these people would line
up with Britain in the fight she is making
for the democracy it affords—and they
have had a taste of this freedom and peace
themselves and had come to like it.
They understand perfectly well that the
"new order" Herr Hitler is talking about is
a new order that would make Berlin the
clearing house for all European economy
and which would give Hitler the power to
take toll of every enterprise that would bend
European backs to pauper toil in order to
pay tribute to a "superior people."
Some day Hitler will find his strength to
be his greatest weakness, for the scriptures
tell that eventually right will prevail, and
history reminds that tyrants invariably
must bow bloody heads. In scattering his
military forces all over Europe in order to
police the conquered territory, he will leave
a weak spot somewhere—and then his real
troubles will begin.
Making a Mountain Out of a
It may have come a little late, of course,
but now that the Democrats for Willkie or
ganization has filed its report with Secre
tary of State Thad Eure, there will be no
further cause for grumbling from official
As a matter of fact the furore that arose
from failure to file the report on the date
specified by law, was merely making a
mountain out of a molehill. The reluctance
of some to have their names listed as con
tributors obviously was a little far-fetched
and maybe «>ntributed to tl\e lateness of the
report. On the other hand what seemed for
the time to be a willingness on the part of
Raleigh officials to accommodate them,
served to encourage delay. But the craving
to embarras Paul Leonard and drive the
wedge degper between Paul and his Fair Tax
Association finally triumphed, the case was
tried in the newspapers for all the unfavor
able publicity that could be squeezed out of
it, and Raleigh has its coveted Willkiecrat
report in detail—down to the littlest two
bits handed in to help the cause.
We don't think it ever was in the back
of the heads of these Willkie leaders to defy
the law, or that they were trying to cover
up. That is indicated by the fact that the
report made out by Treasurer Butler was on
its way to Raleigh, when the newspapers
were carrying the rather pert comment of
Secretary of State Eure. It probably would
have gone forward earlier if Mr. Eure had
not been inclined to carry water on both
shoulders—as he is so capable of doing.
Remembering how Elder Frank McNinch
had defied the powers that be so successful
ly, there were some in North Carolina who
were afraid there would be a repetition.
Back yonder when McNinch was in flower
the law was not as specific as it is now, nor
so fully equipped with teeth. Yet there was
the moral obligation for him to come clean,
just as there was the moral obligation, plus
the legal requirement for a full and clear re
port of the 1940 activities of the Willkie or
ganization. There should have been no de
lay in meeting this obligation.
But now that this report is in hand, list
ing a number of prominent citizens as con
tributors, and telling where the money
went, what will be made of it? Will these
gentry be given the cold stare, when comes
another campaign? We don't think so. The
North Carolina Democracy will need their
votes, their influence, their dollars, and they
will be looked upon as members of the fam
ily who temporarily wandered off the reser
vation. It will be remembered, too, that the
more than thirteen thousand dollars spent
didn't get the cause any whither, and that
will have a lot to do with the headaches of
the morning after the night before.
