WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.---It never leaked out
of the recent Sedate Republican caucus, but Sen-
ator Chan Gurney of South Dakota dropped a
boomerang idea for corralling Republican votes
in the U.S. Army.
Fellow Republican Senators didn't go for
Gurney's brain-storm, partly because they
thought it played down the same alley as the
Harrison Spangler boner when he announced
that he had had a poll made by Army officers
in England which he claimed showed they were
against Roosevelt.
Gurney stood up in caucus to warn Republi-
cans that Democratic Senators on the Military
Affairs Committee, among them Kilgore of West
Virginia, Wallgren of Washington, and Truman
of Missouri, were determined to block the per-
manent promotions of General Patton and Gen-
eral Somervell.
Both generals have been severely criticized,
the first for slapping a sick soldier in a Sicilian
hospital, the second for spending millions of
the American taxpayers' dollars on the contro-
versial pipe line through the Arctic wastes
from Canada to Alaska. Nevertheless, the
Army has tecommended both men for pernman-
eut promotion to the rank of major-general.
Gurney, after telling his, Republican colleagues
about Democratic opposition to permanent pro-
motions said :
"'This is a real opportunity for the Repubh-
cans to win the soldiers' vote, if we come out
for it. It calls for united action on the part
of all Republican Senators. And if we stick
together, we can put through these promo-
Note: What Senator Gurney didn't seem to
appreciate, however, is that it's the vote of the
enlisted men that really counts. And political
sharps believe the men's vote is generally oppo-
site to that of offices.

Willki Shuns Tradition
As Dewey Plays Politics
THE ISSUES at stake in the fight for the Re-
publican nomination for President cleared up
considerably- Wednesday when two of the strong-
est candidate, Wendell L. Willkie and Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey, came out with statements on
national problems.
These utterances brought the contrast between
the two men into focus. While Dewey was rais-
ing his voice against a purely federal ballot for
soldiers, as proposed by the Green-Lucas Bill,
Willkie stated that President Roosevelt's request
for more than ten billion dollars in new taxes
should be doubled.
Once more Dewey showed himself as the
tradition - bound, conservative Republican,
afraid of the ten million service votes, and
hiding behind the convenient screen of states'-
rights. But that's nothing particularly start-
ling, for almost everyone realized where Dewey
stood on such matters.
The real news comes in Willkie's statement.
Up until now most of the Republicans have
busied themselves with throwing up their hands
in horror over the so-called preposterous and
extravagant request of the President for a $10,-
000,000,000 tax bill, and they did everything in
their power to slash it down to a bare minimum.
But here is a Republican, and a Republican with
presidential aspirations at that, who takes the
opposite stand. He doesn't demand that the
President's request be cut in half; he asserts that
it should be doubled!
What brand of astute politics is this when
the prospective GOP nominee says ". . . we
must change our habits," while the party lead-
ers are promoting a campaign for a return to
"the good old days"? It looks as if this man
Willkie is sincere in his statements, standing
for what he knows is right instead of twisting
his ideas to conform with political expediency.
Such, a stand may not endear Willkie to his
fellow-Republicans, but it shows the public that
he is a more honest person than some of the
other candidates, who value political power more
than truth. -Betty Koffman
City Nears bond c oal
W HAT WAS a "kick in the teeth" to Lt. Tom
Harmon when he learned that Ann Arbor
had reached only 35 per cent of its war bond
quota should have been a kick in the pants to his
"source of information."
The fact is that Ann Arbor has purchased
$4,500;000 of the $4,1010,000 quota, according to
DE. Seeley, local war bond auditor.
However, lHarmon's sentiment, if directed at
the campus effort, would indeed have been in
place. There are 11 days remaining in the Fourth
War Loan Drive and the "U" quota is little more
than half filled. More than $60,000 is needed to
reach our goal of $160,0-00; or approximately
$5,500 a day. Servicemen and'faculty have done
their share, and more, toward fulfilling the goal.

I'd Rather
_Be Right
NEW YORK-Feb. 4.-We have told ourselves
for years that we need governments with which
we can deal in the occupied countries. Mr.
Churchill has said so, Mr. Roosevelt has said so,
Mr. Hull has said so. The remarkable result of
years of unanimity on this technical point is
that we have almost no governments with which
we can deal in the major occupied countries.
The Badoglio government in Italy is feeble and
unpopular, and therefore is operating on a short-
term lease. This expires, by its own promise,
when we reach Rome; i. e., there will be no
Italian government just when we will need one
The de Gaulle movement has a longer lease on
power, but we do not recognize it as a govern-
ment. So, after years of explaining that we do
some of the strange things we do because we
simply must have governments with which to
deal, we find ourselves without such governments
for either France or Italy.
We have apologized for our deals with some
of the dried sausages of European politics by
pointing out that we cannot afford to step
off into a political unknown when we invade
the Continent. Our officials have repeatedly
thumped desks, and given each other medals
and compliments, on this theme. We must
have governments with which to deal. So,
after years of this, we find ourselves about to
invade the Continent, and about to step off
into a political unknown.
The policy of finding governments with which
to deal, at any cost, has not even given us gov-
ernments with which to deal.
We found two men, one named Giraud and
the other named Badoglio, and we announced,
with many huzzahs, that here at last were forces
upon which we could lean. Of these two, one has
vanished from the political scene, :md tevoleA
is leaning on us.
I do not raise the question, now, of whether
our State Department and the British Foreign
Office favor reactionary elements in Europe or
not. I take them at their own terms. They have
done what they have done, they say, in order to
have governments with which to deal. Very well,
where are those governments? We have reached
a stage at which our State Department and the
British Foreign Office may soon have to confess
that they favor reactionary elements if only to
show that they make sense.
Please note that I am leaving out of this
picture all ideological considerations. I take
my cue from Secretary Hull. He has-said, often,
that as a practical matter, we must have govern-
mepts with which to deal, and that it is in-
appropriate to go into the question of the precise
political beliefs of the men with whom we work.
Very well, then, let us overlook de Gaulle's
political beliefs, let us forget that he is fiercely
anti-Vichy, and let us deal with him, as a prac-
tical matter. See, I throw ideology overboard.
Go away, ideology, I will have none of you; I
want a government with which we can deal.
It has been said, of Badoglio, that we don't care
whether he is monarchist or not. Fine, fine. I
will take some of that. Now let us say, of the
popular Six-Party coalition in Italy, that we
don't care whether it is monarchist or not.
If the Six-Party coalition is democratic, we
will just have to overlook that. If the people
of Italy don't want to be democratic later on,
we shall give them every chance to have Bado-
glio back. After all, we have a war on our hands;
we have no time for ideology; and we must have
stable governments with which we can deal. Ij
think that is the way it was first put to us, a year
or so ago. Do I quote you correctly, sir?

Editor's note: The folowing artiele was written
by Dr. Otto K. Engleke, County Health Commis-
stoner. It is reprinted from The Citizens' News.
S'HE WILLOW RUN Dental Clinic in Ypsilanti,
up until it was closed Dec. 1, because of lack
of finds, was providing emergency dental serv-
ices otherwise not obtainable to war workers.
It kept men and women on the job turning out
the B-24 bombers. No other health project in
this area is doing as much directly to keep down
absenteeism. Everyone in the locality liked it.
It seems a shame that an excellent project
like this should be shut up for lack of federal
funds. In the First Supplemental National
Defense Appropriation Bill, 1944, item No. 4
of "Public Health Services-emergency health
and sanitation" contained a request for $1,000,-
000 for emergency medical care to provide
dentists for areas, principally war industry
areas, where the number of civilian physicians
and dentists is inadequate to give the attention
necessary. The following quotations are taken
from the report No. 822, House of Representa-
tives, on this bill:
Public Health Service-emergency health and
sanitation-The amount recommended is $1,350,-
000 under a budget estimate of $2,350,000. The
budget estimate contemplated four projects: (1)
$100,000 for venereal-disease control in the Car-
ibbean area, (2) $500,000 for malaria control
around military and naval hospitals and prison-
er-of-war camps, (3) $750,000 for major drainage
projects in connection with sanitation control
adjacent to war establishments, and (4) the
furnishing of doctors and dentists to areas of the
Uunted States unable otherwise to procure ade-
quate medical service for civilian poulations. The
first three projects are approved. The fourth
"The budget request contained an item of
$1,000,000 for emergency medical care to pro-
vide doctors for areas, principally war-industry
areas, where the number of civilian physicians
and dentists is inadequate for normal medical
attention of the population. The amount con-,
templated $573,000 for salaries and travel of
300 commissioned officers of the Public Health
Service for such assignments and $375,000 for
three months' pay ($750 each) and travel ex-
penses ($500 each) for the relocation of .(00
private physicians. Tfie coimmittee has not
approved this reqnest.
"Undoubtedly a critical situation exists in
many areas due to the recruitment for the armed
forces of approximately 50,000 doctors. The com-
mittee is advised that there are approximately
185,000 doctors in the United States counting
those up to 101 years of age. Of these, the
armed forces have taken 50,000 leaving 135,000
doctors in the country available for the civilian
population. An estimate made to the committee
by a prominent medical autthority indicates that
some 40,000 to 50,000 of the 135,00(1 are ineffec-
tive practi ionels Iavn approxinately 85,000
to 95,000 effectivo physici:as to do the work
formerly done by the larger number. The Public

United States at this time some 213 communities
that need physicians and dentists with a mini-
mum need of 295 physicians and 53 dentists.
Now we are told that Local Procurement and
Assignment and local agencies should handle
problems like this. All we know is that there
are no dentists here and granted funds we
know that the United States Public Health
Service could put dentists here. On the ratio
of one dentist to every 2,500 people (minimum),
the FPIJA project at this time should have at
least, four dentists. When fully occupied, this
project will accommodate 22,000 people. This
should call for seven dentists. We have no
hope of seeing seven dentists at the Willow
Run housing project. We do believe, however,
that these people have the right to expect em-
ergency dental care.
Here then we have a situation where all local,
state, and federal official and unofficial agencies
agreed on the necessity. of a project and agreed
on its merits. The local labor union also felt
the project was a good one. It was meeting a
real need and was preventing absenteeism at a
very important war plant. When all people
concerned were united in a request for an en-
largement in the services, it was completely dis-
continued because of lack of funds. The funds
in themselves were of little significance when
expenditures for other things in the area were

semester courses here, are urged to
take these examinations.
