Vet of World
War I Enters
JAG School
Capt. Driscoll Tells of
Excellent Conditions
For Army in Panama
Judge Advocate General's School
Another veteran of World War I
with a yen for foreign service turned
up in the 11th class of the Judge Ad-
vocate General's Staff School in the
person of Capt. Keith F. Driscoll,
Signal Corps.
Fresh in from Panama, Capt. Keith
like other officers arriving daily from
foreign duty said the bright lights in
contrast to blackouts was the first
thing he noticed.
"The Canal Zone is thoroughly
on the alert. We had an instance
of that just before I left. One of
three planes became detached in
flight. On the return trip, as the
lone plane winged homeward, it
was spotted by every observation
post, reported and the alert sound-
ed. In an instant the station
sprang into activity the nature of
which of course I cannot describe.
But it was a sight to remember,"
declared Capt. Driscoll.
Came Up the Hard Way
Capt. Driscoll came up the hard
way, as so many officers in this Army
today have. He entered service as
a private in the New York Cavalry in
1916, and saw service on the Mexican
border in 1916, and served through-
out the first World War being com-
missioned a Second Lieutenant in the
regular Army in October 1917. After
the last war, he returned to practice
law at Syracuse, N.Y., He married
Marion Hanly of Albany, N.Y. and
they have one child, a daughter Mar-
garet, 19, a junior at Wellesley Col-
Capt. Driscoll was recalled to ac-
tive duty in January 1941 and after
a tour of duty in this country was
transferred to Panama.
"The Army has done everything
to give the soldiers fine wholesome
surroundings. The morale of the
men is the hghest. Food is good
and the men enjoy their victuals.
There are moving picture theatres,
swimming pools, athletic grounds
and equipment, and the soldiers are
getting a glow of health they never
could have had in their civilian
routine, for health is the basis of
any man's ability to serve his
country. The non-commissioned
officers have their own club and
the soldiers their own places of
Panama Blaced Out Every Night
"There is aeblackout every night
in Panama, as there is in every thea-
tre of operations. Everyone takes
that in stride, for in the tropics you
have twelve hours of sunlight and
twelve of darkness, and the sun goes
down and night descends, all in five
minutes. This makes the blackout
easier to take than in sections where
the summer days extend to nine
"It is still wonderful, though, to
walk down an American street with
lights on and look in shop windows,
after coming from a tour of duty
where strict blackout is observed,"
said Capt. Driscoll.
'Forester' Will Be
Issue Next Week
The twenty-fourth annual edition
of the Michigan Forester, yearbook
of the School of Forestry and Con-
servation, will make its appearance
early next week, Prof. Wilet F.

Ramsdell of the forestry school an-
nounced yesterday.
Photographs of this year's senior
class, accompanied by character
sketches of the graduates will appear
in the issue. Alumni have written
articles of a more technical nature
while the staff has contributed ar-
ticles on Forestry PEM, Saginaw For-
est (a University property used by
the school for its practical work)
and a review of the past season at
the forestry camp, Filibert Roth, in
the Upper Peninsula.

By LT. G. P. FO1 BES
Judge Advocate General's School
"A judge advocate on foreign ser-
vice has to be a jack of all trades.
As court martial duties are at a
minimum, it is hard to imagine what
duties will be assigned to you. For
example, one of the judge advocates
acted as unofficial ambassador to
Haile Selassie in Abyssinia. Others
were billetting officers, and contract-
ing officers. Another was executive
officer in Eritrea and became acting
officer there when the CO was as-
signed elsewhere, despite the fact
that judge advocates are not sup-
posed to exercise command."
"Another officer in our depart-
ment was liaison, officer to the
British in Persia as well as to the
King of Persia. So you see that
any training that you may have
had in civilian life or previously
in the army will be most helpful,
in so-called extra curricular duties
which may take up most of your
In this manner Major Bruce,
Aitchison, JAGD, recently returned
from 13 months in the Middle East
theatre of operations, outlined his
first hand account of the activities of
a judge advocate on foreign service,
as guest lecturer at the JAG School
Major Aitchison stressed the abso-
lute importance of discipline in over-
seas work. "I am not joking when I

say that seemingly minute things I
that you are taught here such as sa-
luting and wearing uniforms as pre-
scribed are as essential to your de-
velopment as officers as anything you
can learn. I have seen lack of disci-
pline cause disaster. Learn to obey
and to do things immediately. I cant
make that point too strong."
"To any of you that may be as-
signed to the Middle East, I advise!
that you leave your clothes at
home and fill your baggage space
with books to use in your work.
I made the mistake of thinking
that clothes were not available
there, only to discover to my sor-
sow that almost anywhere uni-
forms might be purchased in five
countries but that necessary books
were not.
Living conditions in Cairo were ex-
cellent he observed. American money
goes far and food is plentiful
in most places. One soldier on re-
ceiving a letter from home complain-
ing of the coffee shortage here went
right out to a store purchased a tin
of a well-known American brand and
mailed it to his folks.
The morale of the troops is very
high the Major said and is reflect-
ed in the extraordinarily low pre-
centage of court martial cases. For
example there were only two de-
sertions during the 13 months he
was in the East. The main trouble
comes from American civilian

workers who have been transported
abroad to do specialist work and
who decide one day to tear up their
contracts and return to this coun-
try. The legal questions raised by
such conduct are legion.
"In order to preserve jurisdiction
exclusively over the American Army,
we had to have a treaty with the
Egyptian government which I drew
and presented to the King
through his ministers for sig-

natures, Major Aitchison declared.
According to Major Aitchison
there seems to be a concerted at-
tempt by enemy sources to spread
propaganda in the form of lies
about the British. He told of one
example of which he had personal
knowledge in which the facts were
just the opposite to what the rum-
or was. "Take it from me that the
British have a fine organization
and a splendid army."
