reserve in both countries and that
every effort be made to fairly pre
sent: the attitudes of the govern
ments concerned. ,
' The situation that has developed in
Greece, we think, involves no basic
cause for misunderstanding. The
British commander in that area ap
parently adopted the policy, followed
by General Eisenhower In Belgium.
He used force to maintain law and
order to prevent an armed attack up
on the existing government. We are
quite sure that if American troops
had been in Greece, the same action
would have been taken.
In regard to Italy, the storm
seems to arise over Count Sforza,
who returned to Italy after twenty
years of exile in the United States.
In the process of forming a new gov
ernment, it appeared likely that
Sforza would occupy a prominent po
sition and, apparently, the attitude
of the British was ascertained.
Mr. Churchill explained the situa
tion by saying:' "It is quite untrue
to say that we had vetoed Sforza's
appointment. That right belongs
alone to the Italians. All we have to
say is that we do not trust the man,
nor would we put the slightest con
fidence in any government of -which
he is a dominant member."
Certainly, it was much better for
the British government to reveal its
distrust of Sforza rather than to be
silent and let him dominate any
newly-formed Italian government. If
this happened and the British con
tinued to be without confidence in
him, the resulting situation could
not, in the long run, be productive of
favorable results, either for Italy or
the United Nations.
Little Practical Importance to This
The disagreement among the large
powers as to whether the large na
tions should have veto power on the
world organization if it. is accused of
aggression should be considered in
its practical application to interna
The Russian government insists
upon its representative continuing to
hold a seat and a vote even though
action by the group must be unani
mous. This, of course, amounts to a
veto power as to any resolution or
judgment affecting the Soviet.
Back of the Soviet insistence, no
doubt, is suspicion engendered by the
hostility of other -nations in former
years. In time, after the new ar
rangement begins to work and the
world reorders its affairs, the Soviet
Coernraent, if convinced by experi
ence that there is no league against
Russia, may modify its views and
give expression to greater confidence
in world collaboration.
While the principle that no nation
should sit in judgment upon its own
trial is eminently sound and should
be maintained by Great Britain and
the United States, there is little
practical benefit to be gained at this
This is apparent if we consider the
worst possible contingency that
Soviet Russia should be accused of
aggression and that' the issue comes
before the governing board for judg
ment. Let us eliminate the Soviet
representative altogether and con
sider what action would be most
Neither the United States nor
Great Britain is apt to favor pro
ceedings that would create the pos
sibility of an armed clash with the
Soviet. Certainly no one imagines
that the people of either English
speaking country would be willing to
mobilize large armies to operate
against Russia over an act of aggres
sion or a border dispute in Europe.
If we change the example and con
sider the situation' if a -Latin-American
republic preferred charges of ag-'
gression against the United States,
we would inevitably reach the same
result Neither Great Britain nor
Soviet Russia, under any conceivable
circumstances, would go to war with
the United States over any dispute
that we might have with some smalt
republic on this side of the Atlantic
We presume' that the same reason-
aion in regard to the Britusa Empire
and parts of its far-flung, territories.
If this analysis of the practical
working of an international organiz
ation is sound and the conclusions
reached are correct, it makes little
difference whether' the, Big, Three
continue to hold their seats, with a
vote, when matters affecting them
are under consideration. , . As ,
