world over. Ir-Ik of feeding the world fJid policing the world with armed forces at Vyartine strongfch'is pure poppycock. The cost of such schemes with higher wages for \ striking workers, farmer’s lobbjdsts and over-prer-sure groups would banlcrupt us for thouscinds of years to come. Better give the war torn counties the minimum possible aid and help them to get on their feet as quickly as possible and to contribute our share towards a world police force that will keep a close watch on Gremiany and Japan. If we go Isolationist and try to do the whole job alone, v;e are headed for trouble.
