Collapse of opposition to
*Lend-Lease' Bill due to
attitude of Senators' con
stituents . . . Statement
of Britain's war aims
helpful only to Hitler.
(BeU Syndicate—WNU Service.)
■■■■ " :
WASHINGTON.—Most people out
in the country think that the opposi
tion to the lease-lend-aid-Britain bill
conducted a long-drawn-out filibus
ter. There is a surprising amount
of sentiment that the delay in the
passage of this measure was In
Putting to one side the merits of
the opposition, the fact remains that
the crumbling of the opposition, the
sudden collapse which permitted the
final passage of the bill by the sen
ate on March 8, was a surprise and
totally unexpected. Sen. Burton K.
Wheeler, spearhead of the opposition,
had been so confident in January
that he was sure he could hold off a
final vote until June! He missed his
guess by three months.
The question is WHY?
There was no lack of filibustering
power. The debate could have been
Innumerable amendments could
have been proposed, and each one
of the opposition senators could have
talked to the limit of his physical
capacity on each one of them. There
was no other plan than to do pre
cisely this when the debate opened.
What caused the abandonment of
this fierce resolve on the part of
Wheeler and his colleagues?
WATCH ‘HOME’ SENTIMENT
To find out why the filibuster col
lapsed one has to look outside of
Washington, and outside of New
York. The simple answer Is that
the men conducting that filibuster,
for that is what it started out to be
despite all the denials, did not like
what they heard from back home
about the reactions
A man doesn’t get to be senator,
except at rare intervals, without
knowing a good deal about politics;
without knowing Just what a politi
cal organization can do and what it
cannot do. Voting the way a partic
ular constituent wants you to vote
on some particular issue does not
mean that he will vote for you next
time you come up. But when you
vote AGAINST what that constituent
wants, particularly if he happens to
think that particular issue is the
most important thing in the world,
is very apt to make him vote against
you the next time you run regard
less of everything else.
Too many people, in too many
states, thought this lease-lend bill
and its bearing on the war the most
important thing in the world. Lots
of them did not bother to write let
ters, but every senator has plenty
of listening posts. In a nutshell,
that's the answer.

President Roosevelt Opposes
Statement of 'War Aim«*
Nothing is so annoying to Presi
dent Roosevelt and his lieutenants
in the field of war activities as the
frequently repeated demand of
many so-called intellectuals and
commentators that the British gov
ernment state its war aims.
“It reminds me,” one very close
and trusted advisor of the President
stated, “of two men grappling in a
death struggle. Each has almost
reached his opponent's jugular vein.
A casual passerby shou*s for one of
the men to stop and sti te what he
is fighting about As though he
could stop and face the fact that in
that pause his enemy would almost
certainly kill him.”
There is no secret about this view
of such demands in the administra
tion. Authorized spokesmen in high
positions are saying it to small
groups in off-the-record talks every
few days. They are doing their best
to make the country understand,
without coming right out and saying
so, that nothing in the world would
serve the purposes of Hitler much
more successfully than to have a
statement of British war aims right
POLICY 18 UNSOUND
It takes only a few moments' con
sideration of this problem to see
why. Years back President Cool
idge was fond of saying to inquirers
about a certain policy: “I will tell
you what I have decided to do, but
not the mental processes by which
I reached that decision. You may
agree with the decision, but you
might not agree with the mental
Take a look back at the last war.
Obviously a majority of the people
of the United States were in favor
of going into it.
<- strong minority, consisting of
most of the German-Americans and
pacifists, were opposed.
But suppose that the eventual
terms of the Versailles treaty had
been announced at that time! Then
remember how many national
groups in this country were bitter
against Wilson in 1920 because of
1 those terms!
I On the other hand, what would be
gained by a statement of war aims
at this time? Whom would it please,
save the Nazis and a few critics,
most of whom have been opposed
to U. S. aid for Britain anyhow.

„ TIPS to
GARDENING AS HOBBY
^"^ARDENING as a hobby can
_ be made to pay excellent div
idends. As an example, a Mis
souri woman reports she made a
net profit of $300 from her two
thirds-acre garden in a single sea
son. Figured at market prices,
food used fresh was $230; food
canned, $80; and food stored, $71.
Seed and sets cost her only $20.
There are two major requisites
to obtaining garden profits of this
kind. They are, willingness to
work and the use of quality seed.
It is important also to devote
considerable space to multiple pur
pose crops like beets, onions, and
tomatoes—crops that can be used
in a variety of ways.
Here, briefly, are the uses of
principal multi-purpose crops; On
ions — green, as relish; mature
bulbs fried, stewed, or as season
ing; bulbs for pickle, and relish
making; tops for seasoning; bulbs
for storage. Tomatoes — fresh
fruits for slicing or stewing, for
immediate table use; for canning,
or for making tomato juice, or to
mato catsup; green tomatoes for
frying, or for use in pickle rel
ishes, or in pie filler (like mince
meat); yellow fruits for preserves,
juice, or immediate table use.
Cabbage—fresh in slaw, or sal
ad; cooked for table use; canned
as kraut, or stored. Beets—tops
for greens; roots cooked fresh,
canned, pickled, or stored.
