They Hired the Money
WHEN the argument over collection of 1917-18 war debts
grew hot, Calvin Coolidge settled it, so far as he and
others of his view were concerned, with the rhetorical semi-
question: "They hired the money, didn't they?”
Apparently there is much of the same philosophy still
current. President Roosevelt, who is internationally mind-
ed away beyond his Yankee predecessor’s wildest moments,
now disclaims the statement sent to congress over his ini-
tials that "victory and secure peace are the only coin in
which we can be repaid” for our lend-lease to the anti-
Mr. Roosevelt now says that one of his ghosts pre-
pared the letter to congress in which that sentence ap-
peared, and he never approved it. He would not have
said just that, he discloses.
* * #
’THAT is too bad, because we doubt if even the president,
a phrase-maker of consummate skill, could have im-
proved upon the statement he now repudiates. He could
have elaborated, explained, justified. But he couldn’t have
made it say so much that is true with any greater clarity.
In his apology, Mr. Roosevelt says that, while we may
not collect coin that jingles, he exacts our debtors to come
through with such repayment as they possibly can.
That means nothing at all. We all expect our credi-
tors to pay, so far as they can. Our creditors expect, and
probably are quite willing, to pay up so far as they can.
The trouble is that for practical purposes they cannot pay
in any coin that we can accept with one possible excep-
tion. Some of them could pay with territory, But do wc
want territory? Haven’t we troubles enough with the
limited empire we now possess?
* . * *
JpROBABLY skillions of words have been s|»oken and
written in argument alaiut World War 1 debts, and
the same words will he spoken and written about World
War II debts. When it’s all done, we will not have been
paid, and the reason will Ixiil down to this:
Our debtors can’t pay in money. Itecause there isn’t
that much money. They can’t pay in goods, because we
can’t take that much of goods without wrecking our own
economy. They could pay, partially at least, in insular
territory, in which we should assume the white man’s
burden and. ultimately, turn it free.

The OPA apparently hasn't gain-

a rationing official to "ground"
the patrol by withholding tires and
gasoline unless it came to terms.
8afety Commissioner J. M. Gen-
try said the OPA had demanded 1
that the patrol establish roadside
blockades to stop motorists and
question them about their gasoline j
coupons, particularly whether they
had any business going where they
were headed, and about their tire
Gentry had called the blockades
favored by OPA "obnoxious.’*
Jeff Orlffln. district tire ration
officer, said the patrol might be
forced to terms If tires and gaso-
line were denied It.
However, Griffin's two superiors
—Rex Haves, OPA district director
and Joe Orlffln, district ration of- |
fleer—conferred with Gentry and

the patrol would cooperate so far
as It could.
