'PHE temper of America is away from isolationism, tis the
1 result of the Nov. 7 elections proved. Our European

It was in Silesia that the Nazis
began crocking down on elements
said to have been associated with
Karl Ooerrleler, one-time mayor
of Lcijrzig, in the alleged plot
against Adolf Hitler on July 20.
According to various neutral re-
ports, the nptl-Nasl demonstra- j

But now the political aftermath of liberation in Europe I
almost makes it seem as if these same allies were
us to return to a cynical, isolated frame of mind.
Certainly the role of liberator is a delicate and diffi-
cult one. Old discontents could not he forgot tan in countries
where the end of Nazi domination meant the chance to
start over, with a clean political slate. Nor could liberating
forces avoid the task of maintaining order until a stable,
popularly acceptable government could he established.
Vet the tiisk is lining complicated by clashes of desires
between the liberating' powers which are fanning the fires
of civil dissent ion and piling resentment on top of grati-
tude. Few can doubt that, in the end these clashes will be
resolved with the establishment of governments in Poland,
Yugoslavia, Romania and Bulgaria that Russia finds ac-
ceptable, and of governments in Belgium, the Netherlands,
Italy and Greece that are acceptable to Great Britain.

OUT what about “the consent of the governed?” Take the

appointment of Count Carlo Sforza as foreign minister.
But the British did not approve the appointment, apparent-

So are fi lot of other Italians, it would seem. Never-

Polish patriots did not have the strength to drive out
the Nazis. But millions of thum chose to live and die at

for liberation. Surely they have earned the light to choose
their own governors.
Yet Russian has not suggested accepting a coalition

a freely elected government takes office.

r\NLY in France have the patriots won out. And there
they needed favorable circumstances and superior lead-
ership to overcome the long opposition of the American
and British governments.
Except in Fiance, we have stayed clear of these dis-
putes. Our hands-off policy is probably wise if we would
save our greatest strength to apply within the framework
of the united nations organization. But it is also the policy

pUMORS of further cnbinet shifts in the Roosevelt administration
■ are but one symptom of the genera] feeling of impending change
which now hangs over Washington. Not sinee the time, nearly two
years ago, when tho prince-makers almost succeeded in persuading
Harold I eke-' that, he was to become Secretary ol
Labor with Paul McNutt succeeding him as Secre-
tary of the Interior, has the back stairs gossip flown
about so freely. And. as usual, none of the principals
concerned m the current crop of carefully planted
rumors knows anything about what solid ground
there may be around the roots of the grapevine.
Secretary of Commerce Jesse Jones seems to bo
the intended victim of tho latest putsch. The report
that ho would bo forced to retire to his former
position .s a mere head of tho Reconstruction
Finance Corporation stems from a hope of many
ardent New Dealers who would like to see him
replaced, by a liberal, because lie is considered too
conservative. Also, Secretary Jones is blamed by the Now Dealers
for three things which they have tried to hang on him but which they
have never proved against him—the Texas anti-fourth term revolt or
