Kennedy’s Testimony
Joseph P. Kennedy is a notabU
exception to the rule that Ameri
can ambassadors to England us
ually become more English than
The Court of St. James didn’t
dazzle him. He remained Ameri
can bo the core, as the British press
remarked when he came home last
fall to speak for the re-election of
the President. He returned from
London still believing—not, as
some others do, that every Ameri
can should do his duty by Britain,
hut that every American should do
his duty by America.
As he sees it, that duty is, first,
to keep out of war, and second, to
arm so powerfully that no combin
ation of aggressor nations will e\er
dare attack us.
Yesterday Me. Kennedy told his
story to the House Committee on
Foreign Affairs, testifying in part
for and in part against the Presi
dent’s lend-lease bill. He supported
the President’s program of full aid
bo Britain, short of war—not fail
ing to emphasize the latter phrase.
And, adding point to the emphasis,
he agreed that it would be proper
for Congress: (1) bo forbid Ameri
can warships and merchant ves
sels to enter war zones; (2) to fix
time and money limits on presiden
tial powers, and (3) to name a
small congressional committee to
serve with the President in admin
istering aid to Britain.
Mr. Kennedy’s principal dis
agreement with some members of
the all-out aid-to-Britain group
concerns their premise—that Brit
ain is fighting our war. He insists
that Britain is fighting her own
war. And since he was there when
the war began, our official repre
* * 1
sentative in London, he must know
when he says that the United States ]
was not consulted about thet start
of the war and has wot yet been in
formed of Britain’s war aims.
Mr. Kennedy has said that if he i
thought our entry could bring the;
fight to a successful end in a year,
he would favor an immediate Am
erican declaration of war. He
trusts Hitler, Mussolini and other
dictators no further than he could]
throw St. Paul’s Cathedral. And
mough Britain is fighting her own
war, he has asserted that we should
do everything we can to help Brit
ain except join the fight, since by
helping Britain we gain time—and
time is what we most need, to
make America sw strong that the
bullies of the world will leave us
i*hat isn’t appeasement. That’,
hard sense. — Washington, D. C.,

If both factions in Congress are
as anxious to keep out of war as
they $5\y Jhey are, then some sort

the necessary national safeguards
ought to be found.
