Thieves Fall Out
Like the old fable of the thieves
who fell out . . . Hitler and Stalin
plundered and stole from their
neighbors, but the day came when
one had what the other needed and
there was the "falling out." This
time the climax was reached whea
Hitler declared war on Russia.
While there may be numerous
"wishful hopes" that Hitler, in jump
ing the Russian Bear, has brought to
date the time for history to start re
peating itself, and Germany meets
defeat in the great Russian Steppes,
as did Napoleon, the fact remains
that both of these belligerents are
out of the same piece of cloth.
They are the enemies of civiliza
tion, have no resrards for human
rights and believe in gaining their
end by lying and stealing ana plun
dering their neighbors.
As we see the picture, Joe Stalin's
noRition is now the reverse of what
it was several weeks ago. There can
be no doubt but what he had high
hopes that the democracies would
battle Hitler until such a time that
both would be completely exhausted
and then . . . Communism would step
in and control the world.
Now the picture ia different . . .
with the thieves fighting each other,
and we are wishfully hoping that
they knock the tar out of each other,
the democracies seemingly are get
ting a new deal from the fates.
With the United States furnishing
materials to England and growing in
military strength daily, there should
be every reason to beUeve that when
the end comes, the democracies will
be the stronger and should have no
fear of Communism, and therefore,
should give Germany every death
dealing blow possible while Russia
is engaging her in the East.
Other Ships Will
The rescue of the forty-six pas
sengers, happily completed, when a
British ship reached Africa with the
last survivors of the Robin Moor,
does not conceal the gravity of the
issue presented to the United States
by the attack upon the vessel by a
German submarine operating in the
According to Under Secretary of
State Sumner Welles, the American
vessel was on the high seas in peace
ful commerce, remote from any com
bat zones and carrying nothing con
sidered contraband by this country.
The passengers, including women
ard children, were forced to go into
small life-boats in violation of agree- j
ments between the United States and
Germany. Certainly, no one should
be surprised at this evidence of Ger
man intentions to violate any agree
ment or law whenever desired. Just
the same, the sinking of the Robin
Moor shows very definitely that
Adolf Hitler has issued orders to his
warriors to destroy American ships
in an effort to prevent the delivery
of supplies to the British anywhere
in the world.
It should be noticed that the Robin
Moor was engaged in lawful trade,
carrying no munitions and bound on
a voyage which -wis entirely proper
under the terms of our self-imposed
neutrality act. This piece of legis
lation, passed by the Congress of the
United States, voluntarily surrender
ed the historic American right of
freedom of the seas and, in an effort
to avoid Just audi incidents, pro
hibited American ships from entering
the "combat zones," in times of war.
The act of Congress may be ef
fective in preventing our ships from
going into "combat cones" but it
seems to have no effect in preventing

all over the world. The President
has declared a national emergency.
Our army is gathering in camps all
over the country and Industry is
working as it never had to work be
fore. First there were orders for a few
billions of dollars worth of defense
materials to be produced as quickly
as possible. But it soon became evi
dent that this would not be enough
to make this great, broad peace
lovinir land safe. And still more
planes and guns and ships and tanks
were ordered. First we were tow Dy

of living wouldn't have to be upset,
that we could produce all we needed
for defense in addition to normal
peace-time production. Then we be
gan to realize nothing could stand in
the way of the manufacture of need
ed defense materials. New shifts
were added to enable factories to
function 24 hours a day and a prior
ity ruling concerning basic materials
for defense productions was passed.

the German consulates there is the
quick move of Secretary Harold L.
Ickes as petroleum co-ordinator to
prevent the loading of 252,000 sa
lons of lubricating oil on a Japanese
tanker at Philadelphia.
Scarcely a more incongruous trade
movement could have been imagined
than the permitting of this oil to be
sent to Japan from the eastern Unit
ed States seaboard while at the same
time this very area is being told that
it faces rationing of petroleum pro
ducts, possibly gasolineless Sundays
and cooler houses next winter, be
cause of a scarcity of tank ships to
bring supplies from the Gulf of Mex
ico, the West Coast, and Venezuela.
The immediate question it raises
is: Will the Government act quickly
enough and positively enough to stop
other possible shipments of this sort
from Atlantic ports? The voluntary
co-operation of the oil companies in
the Philadelphia case seems to indi
cate that no obstruction will be en
countered from them.
The next question is how long and
in what volume the State Department
will continue to let gasoline, lubn
catine oil. and fuel oil be shipped
from the American Pacific Coast to
Japan to be used against American
purposes and interests in the Orient.
To be sure, there appears to be an
adequate supply of petroleum pro
ducts in the United States if distri
bution can be arranged. But the Na
tion has seen some other commodl
ties which a few years ago seemed
plentiful become scarce, and is grate
ful even for such limited supplies as
were accumulated. Why not some
stock piping of oil reserves?
The strong probability is that were
oil and gasoline accumulated at re
fineries and in storage, the means
would be found for transporting them
to the thickly populated northeastern
area. Apart from tankers and pipe-
lines there are railroad tank-cars,
river barges, and several other possi
ble media. Several million consum
