Mr. RIMANOCZY. This is an inventory of the wealth of every nation in the world. It deals with the land area in square miles, the population total, the labor force total. Then come the financial aspects, which have a great deal to do with the productivity, such as exchange rate, volume of trade, cost of government, and public debt.

When we get to the important part, we find physical assets, devoted to production, which is the measurement of capacity to wage and sustain war.

We start in the east.
Russia has $29,000,000,000 of assets in Asia.

Then we come down to eastern Europe. Including the German zone, they have 110 billion in eastern Europe. That is a total of $140,000,000,000, which is the maximum that Russia could command.

The world total is $812,000,000,000.
If that is two parts, then there is something wrong in my arithmetic.

There is no possibility of Russia having any military success under this plan, unless we let her grow and grow and grow, and that is what we have been doing.

As I said, time is definitely not on our side of this thing, and I see nothing to lose by prompt action and everything to lose by no action.

Mr. CHIPERFIELD (presiding). Thank you very much for your constructive statement.

I have but one question.

Did you make a statement in substance that we have not taken a single step since the fighting stopped for peace?

Mr. RIMANOCZY. A single important step.

Mr. CHIPERFIELD. In that case, many Members of Congress are under a grave misapprehension, because I think we have taken a number of steps.

Mr. Jonkman.

Mr. JONKMAN. I have been very much interested in your statement, sir.

I have no questions.
Mr. CHIPERFIELD. Mrs. Bolton?
Mrs. BOLTON. Thank you for your very interesting statement.

I wanted to ask you about what I understood you to say on the matter of Russia.

Did I understand correctly that you suggested that she would stay behind her curtain if she separated herself from us?

Mr. RIMANOCZY. I do not think Russia is going to stay out. Assuming that this plan went into effect, I do not think she would stay out.

Her people are more war weary than ourselves and more war weary than most others.

The Russian peasant has but three things he wants-land, bread, and peace. That was the slogan of the Bolshevik revolution. As a matter of fact, the people of Russia are not stupid, but their judgment can be no better than their information. And we have been behaving in a manner that can be construed as being hostile to Russia.

Now, if we step up and ask Russia to marry us, if Russia refuses she is taking the action to excommunicate herself. We are not excommunicating Russia. She is taking the action which results in her leaving

Mrs. BOLTON. Yes; but the Russian people themselves can hardly be said to have much voice in what the Kremlin does, and the Kremlin
