Parliamentary Advisory Council
point of view. Thus the largest and
smallest of the Laender are committed
to the proposition that the opinion of
the Landtag back home should be
binding on its delegates.
T1HE meetings of the Parliamentary
l Council are open to the press, which
is also regarded as a democratic step.
In case the Laenderrat members
want to follow the debate of the PAC
closely on any controversial issue,
they are welcome at any council
meeting, and may participate in it.
The Council may request the presence
of the Secretary General and the Laen-
derrat Plenipotentiaries; and if the
Council members want to inform them-
selves more fully about proposed leg-
islation they may partipate in the
meetings of the committees and sub-
committees of the Laenderrat.
The Council was undertaken as an
experiment, and set up with a pur-
posely short tenure - it is authorized
by an amendment to the Laenderrat
statutes. This amendment expires
30 June, and if it is to continue, must
be extended by unanimous decision
of the Laenderrat.
The Council is working out very
well and its decisions carry weight
and prestige because of the sincerity
and earnestness with which its mem-
bers have thrown themselves into the
difficult problems which confront them.

The Second Chance; America and
the Peace, edited by J. B. Whitton
(Princeton, Princeton University Press,
1944, 235 pages). This work is an
attempt to clarify some of the basic
issues of the post-war world crisis
and "to state as realistically as
possible what ... America should do
to get rid of war and the threat of
war." It is an analysis of what
American foreign policy after World
War II should be. Written as it is by
seven  members of the Princeton
Group for the Study of Post-war
International Problems  it reveals
differences of opinion concerning de-
tails, but all authors agreed that "the
United States should, for its own sake
and the sake of other nations, par--
ticipate wholeheartedly in a world-
wide effort to achieve an enduring
The Gentlemen Talk of Peace, by
William B. Ziff (New York, Mac-
millan, 1944, 530 pages). An ei-
amination of the basic problems fac-
ing the world today. The author
points out these problems and cautions
the reader that there are no panaceas
nor short-cuts to peace. He maintains
that the solutions to the world'*
problems must be global, not nationa.
He proposes the establishment of five
"Power Aggregates," each made up
of nations that voluntarily surrender-
ed boundaries and sovereignties. Each
"Power Aggregate" would be ablO

is thought-provoking, even if 'the
reader disagrees.g-A
