A PROMISE THAT SMIRKS OF APOLOGY
AND now we learn that the Knox resolution for a separate
peace with Germany and all that that means is to be rein
troduced in congress and that a coterie of U. S. senators
has gentlybroken the news to M. Viviani of France that this
country will not enter the League of Nations.
This news is disheartening enough to those who have felt
that President Harding would use all of the influence of his high
office to further some agency which would guarantee the peace
of the world. To be sure, we are told that the Knox resolution
Mill not be pushed for passage until the" president has experi
mented with his "association of nations" idea but the implica
tion is plain that the senators at least those who share the
Knox views have prejudiced the president's efforts along this
line and marked them for failure. m ' ,
In a report of the dinner at which the French'diplomat wasi
tactfully told that this country will make its own peace with
Germany, the Associated Press concludes with this amazing j
"At the same time it is said that senators made it clear that
the United States would take no action which could be consider
ed in any way helpful to Germany especially in the matter of
Since when has it become necessary for America to assure
her allies that she is not going to take a course that will be
"helpful" to their late and mutual enemy?
Have we compromised ourselves for the sake of petty politics
to the extent that we have to promise our associates in the great
est war of all history that we do not intend aiding Germany to
escape from the penalties of her crimes? -:
Have we by our partisan littleness so prejudiced ourselves
before the world that we must couple an announcement of
policy with an apologetic explanation lest the world entertain
a suspicion that we are proving ourselves better friends of our
enemies than of our friends?
If this is the situation and it is the inference we draw it
is a sorry plight our nation iin. When the sponsors of the
"separate peace resolution" feel obliged to tell the nations with
"whom we fought side by side that our independent action in
making a much delayed peace is really not what it seems and,
understood correctly, cannot be construed as an act of friendli
ness toward our enemy nor as an act of injury to our friends,
then it is time for the people of the country to look with sus
picion and distrust upon the resolution.
Iq a matter as important as the making of peace after a dis
astrous war, it seems to us that our actions should be so clean
cut and clearly defined that they will not be subject to the pos
sibility of misinterpretation by either friend or enemy.
Count Witte, who was the Russian delegate to the Ports
mouth peace conference just after the Russ-Japanese war, has
written a book in which he expresses amazement at some Amer
ican social customs; if the count would make another visit now
he might find even greater thrills.

CHICAGO. April . (l 1".) A

craft he says will revolutionise aerial
