Unity Plan Endorsed
Telegraf, British-licensed newspaper
in Berlin, printed an editorial favorable
,to Secretary Marshall's endorsement
of a European Federation.
The Telegraf pointed out that the
reserved attitude shown by the United
States in various post-war conferences
has not done much to bring about
agreement among the big powers.
Since this has become plain, the Pres-
ident and Secretary of State have
now begun a new stage which will
be characterized by increased initia-
tive on the part bf the United States
in order to make up for lost time,
the, paper stated, noting as part of
the new impetus the suggestion made
by the United States to call together
a conference to discuss a European
The fact that this move is not
directed against the Soviet Union Is
shown by the desire of the United
States to have the USSR participate
in the conference, said the paper, ob-
serving that the Marshall program
does not intend to exclude Russia,
though it is desired that Russia give
up her one-sided economic policy in
eastern Europe,.
Noting that various circles will
accuse the United States of im-
perialism, the paper declared:
"These circles would rather have
one continue the extreme nationalism
of the European splinter states in
order to be able to continue their
political business. One would rather
have America's economic assistance
lost in European chaos 'so that all
those conditions could continue which
render any future help 'ineffective.'
Corporal Punishment
The Sueddeutsche Zeitung (Munich)
expressed the belief that the quarrel
about corporal punishment in the Ba-
varian schools should not have been
made a subject of a poll. It said:
"While the young democracy is
still in a developing stage and every-
thing should be done in order to use
Its freedom reasonably, the Bavarian
Educational Minister  demonstrates
what this freedom is good for, viz:
to have people vote whether children
at least may be subject to physical
punishment when adults are no longer
allowed to be subject to it."
