A Separate Air Arm'
In Modern War ...
especially prominent in modern war-
fare and one quite likely to confuse civilian
thought in the matter of America's efforts in
this respect is that of autonomy versus integra-
tion of the air arm.
Especially confusing in the problem is the
fact that the chief combatant nations in the
present war both use the separate air force and
achieve vastly different results; Germany with
its much-touted Luftwaffe which has swept the
the skies of Europe, and England with her
equally well advertised but more negatively suc-;
cessful R.A.F.
Many boosters of the aeroplane as' a military
weapon, especially in the ranks of that service
in the armed forces, urge the adoption of this
sort of separation for the air service of the
United States. On the other hand is the proposal,
of the writer "Saggitarius" quoted from the
British Fighting Forces in the Infantry Journal,
who would incorporate the aircraft of the army
in the lower tactical units, the company and bat-
talion, and man them with personnel of these
It would seem after a careful examination of
the virtues of both these and intermediate pro-
prosals that a compromise leaning toward inte-
gration especially in command with care to rea-
lize the special aptitudes of the flying service,
such as that already in practice in the Army of
the United States, is the best solution to the
HE ONLY MISSION which the air arm can
carry out successfully by itself is the long-
range bombing of enemy elements as an air-
borne artillery. This bombing, except under the
total air war doctrines of General Douhet of the
Italian service, is not an end in itself but merely
creates a diversion of material and personnel
from the fighting front on land or sea or dis-
rupts supply and communications. It is ex-
tremely doubtful, even granting the utility of
the Douhet tactic, which we emphatically do
not, whether the United States would consent
to its use by its forces in any war.
In the case of campaigns involving the joint
operation of two or more arms and services, the
element of ico-ordination becomes paramount.
This is evident in the ever closer integration of
the infantry-artillery team.
It has been argued in this connection by the
proponents of the separate air arm that the
planning and coordination of joint operations
if left to the Army and/or the Navy becomes
dominated immediately by unprogressive old
moss-backs incapable of understanding or ap-
preciating the problems and utility of the air
arm. Tha this is not true will become evident
'when it is ointed out that the normal program
for officers in both the Army and Navy of this
country includes over twenty hours of flying.
And in order for the training to be given to the
junior officers it must needs have been provided
for by the "moss-backs."
PASSING to the argument that both of the
major warring nations in Europe today have
their air arm organized separately, it may be
pointed out that Germany's has worked satis-
factorily and England's has not. This apparent
contradiction can be laid to the domination of

Chicago Sees
A New 'Sin' Rise®.
see in a newspaper something more
than a mere fleeting recorder of contemporary
history will open the pages of a new paper in
Chicago in the opening bout of what may prove
one of the most romantic battles in journalistic
The Chicago Sun will appear tomorrow, a
challenge to the supremacy of the lusty and
seemingly eternal Chicago Tribune.
For years now Chicagoans have looked for-
ward to this day. The nation's leading New
Deal baiter, The T-ibune, has dominated the
morning scene in Chicago for many years. Citi-
zens have been indignant at its biased reporting,
*ts disregard of the facts. Meetings have been
called, and vitriolic phrases hurled. But still
staunch Roosevelt-hater Col. Robert Rutherford
McCormick, personification of the Tribune, has
continued unbothered.
NOW a new challenger appears on the scene.
Marshall Field, whose grandfather lent Col.
McCormick's grandfather the money to start the
Tribune, has provided the backing for a new
paper to be published for the first time tomor-
row, The Chicago Sun.
The battle will be a hard and bitter one. Both
papers are backed by apparently bottomless
financial pockets. The Tribune, though despised
by many Chicagoans, has established itself as a
tradition: Andy Gump and Co., endless features,
contests, promotions, all an essential part of
Twentieth Centu'ry, Journalism.
The Sun in this respect is an enigma. Silliman
Evans of Nashville, shrewd one-time protege of
Cactus Jack Garner, will be the guiding light
behind it. A staunch New-Dealer, Evans will
guide the Sun in one direction: support of
Roosevelt foreign policy, cautious approval of
Administration local policy
THETRIBUNE despises all that isRoosevelt.
By cartoon, editorial, biased newspaper story
this has been shown. FDR supporters equally
despise this type of journalism, and even many
anti-New Dealers have grown sick of Tribune
The battle opening tomorrow will be a long,
bitter one. Marshall Field, with little more jour-
nalistic experience than the backing of R~lph
Ingersoll's abortive attempt at a pictorio-news-
paper minus advertising, PM, is scarcely an op-
ponent for wily Col. McCormick. But newcomer
to Chicago Silliman Evans has been in other
fights before, will see that The Chicago Sun
leaves at least a blazing trail on the journalistic
horizon before it follows its big brother PM.
The romance of journalism is far from over.
The next few months will spin another tale
equal to the most fantastic anecdote of Bonfils
and Truman. Will the Tribune capitulate, mod-
ify its editorial policy to regain favor with Chi-
cagoans? Will the Sun stay above red ink un-
der the scathing blasts that wil come from Col.
McCormick's pen? Or will the two go on side
by side, proving what many have said, that
there is room for two morning newspapers in
Chicago, even two so widely different as The
Sun and The Tribune?
McCormick willknow he has been through
a struggle. And Chicago readers will witness one
of the most: colorful epics of modem btimes.

National Anthem
A Sign Of The Times?...
HEY PLAYED the "Star Spangled
Banner" at the concert Sunday, be-
fore they began the program, the way they al-
ways play it these days before anything begins.
I don't mind people playing the "Star Spangled
Banner"-it's a good number, if slightly remi-
niscent of Grand Opera. I even enjoy singing it,
though it's obviously out of my range.
It's just that it rubs things in so-and that
the world has reached the point where things
have to be, rubbed in so. So .this is written to
deplore, not the sotig, not its 'patriotic signifi-
cance, but the fact that once again conditions

are such that consciousness of country must be
pointed out at every turn. The song to open the
concert merely epitomizes the dire necessity for
emotionalism throughout the nation. It has be-
come an essential social force to bind a nation
together in time of emergency. People stand
and sing and feel a thrill-which is what they
are meant to feel. But the realization of why
this thrill is so imperative is what hurts.
Remember when you used to sing the national
anthem? It was back in grade school, mostly
just to learn the words"and melody.
BUT the atmosphere is different today. It has
to be different. The world situation has
reached the point where the country has to in-
sist on overt demonstrations of loyalty. Any
country has to, and the United States is no ex-
ception. It's absolutely necessary to keep house-
wives patriotism-conscious by getting them all
steamed up to donate their old pots and pans
twhich are of dubious value for defense). It's
Imperative that the flag be seen by everyone and
saluted often; and that slogans and catch-
phrases be constantly dangled before the public.
It is all summed up by the "Star Spangledr
Banner" introducing Bach in the concert hall.
Our country is right-it has to do these things.
But what heartbreaking world turmoil is at
fault in creating such a need for a living "Star
Spangled Banner"! - Grace Miller
month according to the date the battle is going

This utter absence of co-ordination can be
laid to lack of understanding between air-men
who are not soldiers and soldiers who know

WASHINGTON - Martin Dies, the unpredic-
table Congressman from Texas has not been
talking much of late, but he has had a corps of
investigators doing a lot of digging. And the
result promises to be one of the most important
contributions the Dies Committee has made so
far to the expose of un-American activities.
Dies has seized the records of several German-
American agencies, also Nazi checks coming from
South America, together with some of the records
of Japanese propagandists. Piecing all this to-
gether, he has a sensational and apparently ac-
curate picture of the tremendous ramification
of Nazi propaganda in this country.
One of the most significant phases is the
manner in which this Nazi machine is linked
through its members to certain American organ-
izations such as the Knights of Camellia, the Ku
Klux Klan, the Silver Shirt and so on.
Central agency for this Nazi propaganda,
according to the Dies records, is the Kyffhaeus-
erbund which operates in North and South
America. It cooperates with the Kriegerbund,
which operates all over the world.
Tracing the membership list of the Kyffhaeus-
erbund, Dies has found that many of its mem-
bers also are members of the Silver Shirts,
the Klan, and local chapters of the America First
Committee. The interlocking membership of
these organizations, his investigators have found
to be almost unbelievable.
Detroit Strongest Center
One interesting Dies discovery is that the larg-
est number of contributions to these organiza-
tions comes from Detroit; second, Chicago, a
noted isolationist center; third, New York.
Dies has also found that some Italian schools
tie in with these organizations, and among other
things use text boots from Italy which glorify
However, the most significant thing is the
creed of these German organizations - to spread
confusion, distrust and suspicion. In fact, the
fundamental program of the bunds is to keep the
United States as disunited as possible.
Texas Rangers
Texas' famed rangers have performed many
unusual services in their long coorful career,
but none stranger than the'ohe they are now
tackling in the interest of national defense.
A detail of fifteen crack rangers has been bor-
rowed by the government to help keep order at
the Trinidad island base loaned the United States'
by Britain as part of the deal for 50 over-age
Under construction in the jungles of the West
Indies island is a $51,000,000 naval and air base.
The terms of the agreement with Britain require
the employment of native labor for the manual
work and because of the high wages paid by the
two U.S. construction firms there has been con-
siderable trouble among the natives competing
for jobs. On several ocrasions there have been
riots which the war-reduced constabulary could
not handle.
Because of Texas rangers' experience, Trini-
dad authorities decided to ask the State to lend
a group to help the Trinidad constabulary main-
tain order.
This Week's Music,
Alphabetically SpeakingI

Some pop tunes and a few others, by the
standard combinations this week. Here goes.
the Groove and 'Long About Three In the Morn-
ing. This group records for Decca's Sepia Series
and they get hot in a vocal sort of a way. The
B side is sort of bluesy and has some interesting
instrumental effects. Get In the Groove fea-
tures a vocal ensemble which gives a good at-
mospheric impression of Harlem 'long about
three in the morning.
DORSEY, TOMMY: I Think of You and Who
Can I Turn To? The first side is based on Rach-
maninoff's Concerto No. 2, but it sounds just
like any other Dorsey pop to this reviewer. Flip-
over side is good for dancing, arld probably a
good risk for the Hit Parade. (Victor)
MILLER, GLENN: Everything I Love and
Baby Mine. No matter what I say about this it
will sell like mad, because Glenn Miller recorded
it. (Bluebird)
MILLS BROTHERS: The Bells of San Raquel
and I Guess I'll Be On My Way. A characteristic
Mills Brothers twosome. Absence of complicated
material, but good straight and sentimental
singing of these two numbers. If you like the
Mills Bros., this is for you. (Decca)
MONROE, VAUGHN: , And So It Ended and
A Sinner Kissed an Angel. The A side of this is
being publicized by the Hearst papers as Vaughn
Monroe's choice for the hit of the future. And
it does go well with V. M.'s voice. On the other
side Monroe kisses an angel. (Bluebird)

School march from the George Abbott Produc-
