THE BEST and most convincing reasons for
investing in war bonds in this Fifth War
Loan drive can be found written on the front
pages of every newspaper in the country every
No better argument for the purchase of.
bonds could ┬░be found than the bitter fighting
on the beaches of France, -the dead and
wounded -on the Italian front, the toll of
American life in the Pacific. It is persuasion
enough that there is not one of us who does
not have a close relative or friend on one of
the battlefronts of this war.
The response which we make to war bond
" campaigns is an index of the enthusiasm with
which we regard the vigorous prosecution of
the war. The money we invest is a yardstick
of our desire to have the war end, successfully
and as'soon as possible.,
Reason seconds our emotions. By investing
in bonds we accomplish three things: 1) we
accelerate the attack ' upon our enemies
abroad, 2) upon inflation at home and 3)
upon the threat of insecurity in the post-war
world. It would be superfluous to emphasize
the importance of these three objectives.
There is no person who can afford NOT to buy
war bonds. And there are few who can afford
not to buy EXTRA bonds-and keep on buying.
-Jennie Fitch


PERHAPS this is the wrong time to mention
it, when you should be studying for your
finals, but when you go home between semesters,
be sure to register to vote. You might even get
a button to put on your lapel: I Am A Registered
Voter, Are Yoti? (Some of the profs and many
of the members of UAW-Local 38 are wearing
them these days.) They're better than the
FDR or Willkie or Sunflower buttons, because
they never go out of style.
This summer we have- to be sure that a
voting information booth is set up on campus
for absentee students and soldiers. We've
got to have political forums, and -to learn
about gubernatorial and senatorial candi-
dates, as well as presidential ones. We don't .
mean to sound repititious, but we also need
to know the content of the important bills
currently before Congress, and perhaps even
try to keep up on Supreme Court decisions.
We might allot ourselves special time to study
the American current political scene, now
that we no longer have to watch the clock,
waiting for D-Day.
It's pretty strange when fellows in the Army,
far from civilization and county clerks' offices
and campaign headquarters, are more active
than we are in the democratic business of elec-
tions. But we surely are far behind some camps,

I'd Rather Be Rsight

at least, like Camp Crowder, Missouri, where.
the Post Voting Officer has an active committee
helping him. They are setting up voting infor-
mation booths in all Service Clubs, distributing
voting posters,, getting able speakers sent to all
companies urging the men to apply for ballots,
presenting a play dramatizing the importance
of voting. The men are planning to use the
same sort of publicity that is being used in the
Fifth War Loan Drive, movie stars included.
(The Hollywood Democratic Committee has al-
ready agreed to cooperate on this point.) They
want to have a National Registration Day for
Soldiers, to be observed with the same serious-
ness and community cooperation as Labor Day
or Memorial Day.
partment Memo W600-44, which assigns vot-
ing responsibility to commanding officers), grows
out of the new Army policy of encouraging dis-
cussions of current affairs in the camps so
that our soldiers will make up an intelligent,
informed, enthusiastic militia. In many camps,
present-day problems are being discussed more
completely and candidly than in community
forums: the race riots, post-war job security,
international pooperation, the relation between
the home front and the military front . . . all
are being hashed out by the men perhaps more
vitally concerned than any other group in
the country.
With the increased opportunity for bull
sessions, and with the wide variety of maga-
zines and newspapers sent to Army camps,
there is much less likelihood that native
fascists can turn servicemen into politically-
ignorant pawns. The Peace Now advocates,
the We, The Mothers defeatist groups, the
anti-labor, anti-Administration, anti-interna-
tionalists who are using religion as a cloak
for their programs, will not fare so easily in
the future.
It is becoming more and more apparent that
the citizens who need to be educated to political
maturity this year are the ones who stay right,
at home, keeping up with the news in The
Reader's Digest, The Chicago Tribune, The
Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News,
The Washington Times-Herald, The Detroit
Times, etc. They are the men and women
who are "on their toes to new developments,"
and who join every organization with a patri-
otic name and symbol, like The United Sons of
America. or The Committee for Constitutional
Government, without looking into their histo-
ries, their programs, and especially, into the list
of contributing patrons.
We. in Ann Arbor, have much more opportu-
nity for getting a fairly accurate conception
of what is going on in the world than most of
the rest of the country. We have all the
books and pamphlets and organizations and
academicians we need. But we had better start
using our heads and our hands if we don't want
to become the "ignorant electorate" we're
warned against in-political soience courses.
-Ann Fagan

WASHINGTON, June 13-Across
the Potomac, in the sprawling Penta-
gon Building, General George C.
Marshall, U. S. Chief of Staff, gives
all credit for U. S. invasion success
to the boys over there, their officers
and to General Eisenhower. How-
ever, those who have watched lean,
greying General Marshall close-up
during the tense months of the war,
know how he too has worked, plan-
ned, dreamed almost every detail of
the invasion.
Three years ago, before we entered
the war but when everyone knew it
was a certainty that we would, this
columnist asked General Marshall
what chance there was of a British
cross-channel invasion.
"Do you realize what it takes to
Itdd an army in France?" he re-
plied. . "It takes not merely ships
and men-and naval vessels to pro-
tect those ships. It also means
docks, warehouses, railroad termi-
nals, and freight cars by the thou-
sand. But especially it means
docks-some place to land. In the
last war, we didn't have to worry
about any of these things. The
French supplied them. But in this
war"-he shook his hand rue-
fully-"it is different."
As he talked, Marshall thought
back to 1917-18, when he was only
36 and a captain. At that time, he
performed a modern miracle of
maneuvering--second only to that of
the present second front. He worked
out for Pershing the plan whereby
one million men were transferred
from the St. Mihiel to the Meuse-
Argonne Front.
Nineteen railroads, 34 hospitals,
40,000 tons of ammunition, 93,000
horse, 164 miles of railway, 87 sup-
ply depots and 4,000 cannon all were
moved up just beyond the German
lines-and the enemy didn't even
know it.
Cooperation with Ike. .
A general in modern warfare does
not ride into battle waving a sword,
He sits behind a desk. And this
time, General Marshall, instead of
being close to the battle-front, has
done his planning from behind.
And unlike the situation In the
last war, Marshall and his Euro-
pean commander cooperate beau-
tifully. They are close friends. In
the last war, General Pershing was
in bitter conflict with General
Tasker Bliss, the U.S. Chief of
Staff; later with General Payton
March ( who succeeded Bliss.
NOTE: General Marshall is one
of the few Chiefs of Staff we have
had who did not go to West Point.
Due to the fact that his father was
about the only Democrat in Union-
town, Pa., during the McKinley Ad-
ministration, he could get no West
Point appointment, went to Virginia
Military Institute instead.

NEW YORK, June. 13-Some of the leading
writers and best newspapers of Britain are now
aroused against America because of our treat-
ment of de Gaulle. The London Times is vexed;
the New Statesman and Nation is bitter; the
Manchester Guardian is tart.
If Washington still has the narrow idea that
in dealing with de Gaulle it is dealing only
with de Gaulle, it had better read the British
press. In dealing with de Gaulle we are dealing
with the opinion of mankind. In affronting de-
Gaulle, we are affronting that opinion.
In opposing de Gaulle we are not merely
opposing one irritable Frenchman, as we like
to imagine; we are opposing the Times of
London, the Manchester Guardian, Anthony
Eden, Count Sforza. Commissioner Molotoff,
Benes of Czechoslovakia, the Times of New
York, the Herald Tribune of the same city,
,and every second man you meet in the subway.
De Gaulle is not alone. In opposing him we
find ourselves opposing a loose world-wide fra-
ternity of men of good will. It really is one
war. When we slap at de Gaulle, it is the editor
of the Manchester Guardian who holds his hand
to his suddenly reddened cheek.
I believe I can offer a guess as to what has led
the President into this unfortunate wrestling
match with the best opinion in -the world, includ,
ing the best of American opinion.
He has (I think) a vision of the de Gaulle
Committee riding up in an automobile behind
our front lines in France, say a mile back.
We free a town. The Committee moves in.

It will be noticed how eloquently I have
stated the case. Yet surely it is an exag-
gerated case. After all, the theory that we
need a government to "keep order" behind our
advancing armies is our own theory. We have
used it everywhere except in France. The
only place where we don't want a leader is..
where we have one. Having found out that
hand-picked leaders, selected by ourselves,
don't last very long, we seem to have come
to prefer a vacuum; our own way, or noth-
Whatever the reason, France is the first
country in which we have abandoned our own
marvelous dialectics about the absolute, blaz-
ing, burning, imperative need for temporary
If de Gaulle agrees to include all decent
Frenchmen in his temporary regime, what ob-
jection remains? That there is some 'domestic
opposition to him? That argument has never
impressed us in North Africa or in Italy. There
is some oppositio nto Mr. Churchill in England,
and there is some to Mr. Roosevelt in America.
We have made a special case of de Gaulle alone,
He is the only leader in the world who, we insist
must rule by unanimity, not majority.
