Unification of Germany is de
sired by the United States and the
German people, it was pointed out
by Maj. Murray F. Gibbons, pro
fessor of military science and tac
tics, and Walter Schwarzlose, Ger
man student in journalism who is
editor of a Cerman newspaper, in
the first International Relations
r;lub forum last week.
Maj. Gibbons discussed German
unification in terms of the stability
of Europe and the Soviet-Ameri
can power struggle. He said Ger
many is the key to Russian and
American tension, possessing the
largest industrial and military po
tential outside of the tw'o powers,
and enough to decide the balance.
The United States would wel
come a neutralized independent
and unified Germany, with a gov
ernment responsive to the people,
he asserted, though the govern
ment need not necessarily be pro
Red or pro-West, but friendly to
all its neighbors.
Another alternative Maj. Gib
bons stated, would be a federation
of western Europe with Germany,
possibly only western Germany as
an integral part. He indicated time
was pressing since the Russians
might find it expedient to strike in
the spring of 1952 before Europe
can be sufficiently stabilized.
Schwarzlose said failure to
achieve German unification and
the signing of a separate west Ger
man peace treaty would toally de
moralize eastern Germany and pro
vide material for Communist
There would be little gain by a
separate treaty, he said, and much i
to lose, making unification more j
difficult. On the other hand, he '
went on, the holding of free elec
tions would allow a government
friendly to the west to take office.
Maj. Gibbons, in discussing the
attitude of Russia to Germany,
contended the Soviets would con
cur in a plan for a united independ
ent Germany only if she could get
eventual control of all Germany.
An independent Germany would
throw Poland further into Russia’s
orbit, he said, because Poland
needs Russia to hold the territory
taken from Germany.
Stalin might approve of a uni
fied Germany in order to lessen i
the possibilities of a federation of
western Europes Maj. Gibbons .
