WASHINGTON-Alibis cannot very well ex-
plain away how both Army and Navy Intelli-
gence had their guard down so carelessly when
Japanese planes swooped down out of the early
morning sky at Hawaii on Sunday.
Their only explanation so far is that the Pacific
is a very wide ocean. However, U.S. Naval Intel-
ligence at least is supposed to keep a careful
eye on when Japanese warships leave port and
notify U.S. naval stations in the Pacific to watch
out for them.
In 1932, for instance, during the Japanese in-
vasion of Manchuria, the Japanese fleet left
mysteriously, and for several weeks the U.S. fleet
wason the alert trying to figure out its destina-
In recent years, however, both intelligence
services have been under the cdmmand of draw-
ing-room experts. General Sherman Miles, in
charge of Military Intelligence, is a charming
gentleman who has surrounded himself with
wealthy young blue-bloods. Only members of
the best families can qualify for Military Intelli-
gence, and how much they know about the life1
around a Japanese waterfront is questionable.
Similarly, Naval Intelligence has been in charge
of two delightful gentlemen, Captain Alan Kirk
and now Captain Ted Wilkinson. Both have
their names listed in the Social Register, the
blue-bloods list of Washington's selected social-
ites. Wilkinson has a large mansion across the
Potomac in Virginia, and there he entertains in
the very best manner, but when it came to dock-
ing the U.S.S. Mississippi in New York it took
him six and a half hours.
Captains Kirk and Wilkinson are great assets
at dinner parties, and apparently want all their
young men to be likewise, for no man can get
into Naval Intelligence unless both grandfathers
and grandmothers were born in the U.S.A. Not
even Wendell Wilkie could qualify.
Obviously it is the man who can speak a few
languages, is not afraid to get his hands dirty
in close contact with life, and who is not too
particular regarding the percentage of blue
blood in his veins, who should be able to bring in
shipping information.
Mrs. Roosevelt And Japanese
Mrs. Roosevelt is one of the most even-temper-
ed, good-natured persons in the world. But no
one in Washington was more irate than she when
the news first broke that Japan had sprung a
Hitler double-cross on Hawaii during the middle
of her husband's appeal to Emperor Hirohito.
On the fateful Sunday of the bombardment,
Mrs. Roosevelt came into the White House while
the President was talking to the Japanese Am-
bassador. She said nothing at the time, but her
lips tightened up into a firm straight line -
sure sign that the First Lady's dander is up.
Afterward, she told friends.
"Imagine the nerve of that man sitting with
my hisband in the White House when Japan-
ese bombs were falling on our boys! And when
I came up he got up and actually bowed and was
full of smiles!

F. D. R.'s Address
Praised For Statesmanship
. S AMERICANS began the job of set-
tling down to the grim fact that this
Is a country at war, it seemed good to hear the
%aim, clear, confident voice of our Commander-
tn-chief outlining concisely, yet completely, that
Which we are to do.
Without pauses for rhetorical effect, without
haranguting, and without hysteria, President
Roosevelt set forth not only our immediate task,
3ut our eventual goals.
In the midst of a sudden, unprovoked attack,
it took real courage -and foresight to take the
longer view, to prepare for the victory of hu-
inanity at the same time that plans had to be
made to fight a vicious hand-to-hand battle in
the Pacific..
Yet the Presidentdid exactly that in stressing
that our war with Japan is not to be one of re-
venge, but rather one fought with the sense of
dignity that a nation can retain only when it is
fighting for an ideal, only when it is fighting in
defense of something more universal than na-
tional honor or national interests.
THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT that as President
Roosevelt delivered this most historic of
fireside addresses that a million thoughts of
where to move next, and how to accomplish im-
mediate aims flashed through his mind.
Yt with an amazing steadiness of purpose
and with a complete lack of ostentation he
named one by one the crimes against humanity
of the international gangsters., They rolled forth
one after another, but there was no screaming
hbte in the voice of the man who repeated them,
no half-hysterical fear that this nation would be
added to the list of victims. There was rather
a clarity of vision, a breadth of outlook that
went beyond the words and found their expression
in the hearts and minds of his listeners.
President Roosevelt did not forgive those in-
ternational gangsters for their crimes,- neither
did he say that their guilt would bring no pun-
ishment. But he did emphasize that their pun-
ishment is not the primary aim of this nation
in its tremendous effort. It is, instead, as he
pointed out, the reestablishment of human de-
Vency throughout the world, the eventual safe-
guarding for all time of the security of peaceful
peoples interested only in the improvement of
JN THE ACCOMPLISHMENT of all this, the
President stated, we nust realize that Japan is
not our sole enemy, but is in fact the tool of that
greater menace to freedom, Hitler Germany. We
must be prepared to fight not just one treacher-
ous nation, but we must fight the whole vast
Axis organization, realizing that a victory for the
Allies anywhere in the world is a victory for
democracy and freedom.
We are going to win the war and the peace as
well, but as President Roosevelt declared, we
must understand that we are not representing
our own cause alore, but the cause of the mil-
lions all over the globe who look to us for lead-
ership in the restoration ofthe world to a new
and greater sanity.
-Hale Champion

No-Appeaser Ickes
The one member of the Cabinet who had a
consistently 100 per cent, though sometimes un-
popular, batting record regarding Japan was
the toe-stepping, hit-'em-harder Secretary of the
Interior Harold Ickes.
No one outside the Cabinet ever knew just
how many tough fights Ickes had with Secretary
of State' Hull over appeasing Japan. For a time it
got so that Hull would not speak to him.
Ickes argued way back in 1937, when Japan,
first invaded China, that the United States
-should cooperate with Britain in shutting off
Japan's oil and the raw materials of war. And
he kept plugging this theme and getting into the
hair of the State Department with unremitting
zeal ever since.
He brought the matter up again in 1938 when
the Japanese sank the U.S. gunboat Panay, ob-
viously a test by the war lords to see whether
the United States would take it lying down.
Then, in 1940. Ickes joined with Morgentpau,
Stimson and Knox in trying to persuade the
President td embargo all oil, gasoline and scrap
iron. Once again Secretary Hull opposed, and
persuaded the President to delay the oil em-
bargo until almost a year later, by which time
Japan had built up a year's reserve of oil -
which she has today.
Meanwhile, the State Department got so sore
at Ickes that they actually started a bureau of
their own regarding the islands of the Carib-
bean, competing with Ickes' division of Terri-
tories and Insular Affairs. In fact, the State
Department almost hired as chief of this division
the Governor of the Virgin Islands whom Ickes
had fired.
Secret- South American Bases
One clue as to how carefully the Japanese and
Nazis prepared for the attack on the U.S. was
unearthed by the Congressional Committee
which investigated aviation conditions in South
They discovered that six Messerschmidt planes
recently were flown into Colombia by Japanese
pilots. The planes and pilots later disappeared,
but it is well known that Colombia is dotted with
German "finas" or plantations, many of them
not too far distant from the Panama Canal.
These plantations are isolated establishments,
where no outsider can ascertain, exactly what
goes on.
The Congressional Committee also learned
that the Japanese had secretly stored 8,000 tons
of dynamite at Medellin, and that other high
explosives were stored by Japanese fifth col-
Another, revealing clue was the report that
Japanese and Nazi agents had established twelve
secret air bases in the Colombian jungles in con-
nection with German plantations,.
War Chaff
It was significant that Japanese struck first
not at the Philippines, which is armed to the
teeth with heavy bombers, but at Hawaii. Ha-
waii had sent its best war planes on to the Phil-
ippines . . . If the navy had read the newspapers
it might have been better prepared last Sunday.
Constantine Brown, foreign affairs expert of the
Washington Star, predicted war with Japan ten
days in advance and named Sunday, Dec. 7, as
the starting date ...I
Current sight is always easier than foresight,
but looking backwards it might have been better
not to have arrested all those German spies. J.
Edgar Hoover was running a radio station for
them, though they didn't know it, and had pos-
session o the secret Nazi code. Continued pos-
session of that code might have revealed the
hookup between Hitler and the Japanese war
lords and the plans! for attack. However, the
Justice Department wanted to show that Dies
was not the only one who was chasing spies and
overruled Hoover's arguments for continuing to
watch the spies but not arrest them ...
Incidentally, both Hoover and Dies appre-
hended several Japanese agents on the West
Coast, together with reams of documents show-
ing their espionage activities. In one case, the
State Department forced Hoover to turn Japan-
ese loose even though an American confederate
was convicted. In the case of ]hies the State De-

partment requested him not to publish his sen-
sational material . -

Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98 ........Brahms
*' * *
The Boston Orchestra played last night with
all the inspiration, technique, tone and all such
musical qualities that are usually demanded of
a major organization and which the Bostonians
usually produce during their Ann Arbor appear-
Dr. Koussevitzky led his musicians through the
Mozart with all the finesse and delicate maneu-
vering so as to leave a flawless performance in
his wake. He took utmost advantage of Mozart's
meager thematic devices by bringing them to
a subtle balance and unity that a less skilled
hand could easily depress into monotony,
A feature of the evening was the performance
of a new work by the contemporary American
composer, William Schuman. As to its good or
permanent qualities, it is difficult to say, but
as a musicianly work it- is undeniably excellent.
It was of particular interest to hear the modern
technique of harmonic and thenatic invention
applied to old forms such as the passacaglia,
fugue, chorale, and toccata. Indeed, his ad-
vanced harmonic and thematic style made the
outlines of the forms difficult to apprehend with
the exception of the fugue which seemed to ad-4
here to the customary procedure. On the whole,
the work was a vast contrapuntal structure that,
at the same time, indulged in some very extra-
ordinary orchestration.' Yet in spite of its com-
plexity, the virtuoso aspects of the orchestra gave
the work a diabolical clarity.
If the Work lacked appeal in its melodic phases,
then it made up for this lack in its extreme
range of dynamics, steady and insistent tempi'
and its kaleidoscopic panorama of instrumental
The final symphony, the Brahms, brought a
welcome relief from the strident harmonies of
the work that preceded it. It is always a pleas-
ure to, hear a live performance of this sym-
phony. Themes and thematic manipulation, so
apparent in last night's performance, are fre-
quently lost even in the finest recordings. Dr.
Koussevitzky gave the work a superior reading
and his musicians responded with a tonal warmth
and flexibility that should have moved the most
unimpressive person in the audience.
If any two movements could be singled out for
special mention, they were the second and last.
