Why Army Is Hated
FAR AND WIDE America has hailed the "free-
dom of the press for all peoples" as one of
our war aims. Now it seems that part of the
American Army, the boys who fought for this
freedom, are about to be denied it. Mark Gayn,
PM correspondent, reports that the Tokyo edi-
tion of Stars and Stripes, the army newspaper,
is threatened with dissolution in the near future.
Although innocent sounding, the announcement
has ominous implications.
A previous Daily editorial described the re-
moval of columnist Bernard Rubin and his
editor, Ken Pettus, which occurred after Ru-
bin had stepped on some official toes by print-
ing the facts about the black war record of Dr.
Kagawa, the well known Japanese Christian
leader. Their removal and further efforts on
the part of "high brass' to censor and distort
the news printed in Stars and Stripes have
only resulted in increased agitation among the
remainder of the staff. Several members of the
editorial staff have resigned after making pub-
lie statements that they had been forced to
play down and distort news, an action which
was not in keeping with their professional
SINCE attempted muzzling has not been able
to stop the fight for the continuation of a
free news service, various official sources, par-
ticularly General Eichelberger's Eighth Army,
are trying to persuade General MacArthur that
the only way to quell the controversy is to abol-
ish Stars and Stripes entirely. This would leave
the GI's in Japan with the wide choice of read-
ing the "high-command" handouts in the Eighth
Army's Octogonian or else depending for their
news upon the Nippon Times, a Japanese publi-
cation which, until V-J Day, was strongly anti-
American. For editorial opinions, they will be at
liberty "to read Kazuo Kawaii, the Times writer
who last summer was writing bitter denuncitions
Such an action will be disgraceful commen-
tary on the American Army which will be ac-
knowledging, very plainly, that is is afraid of
a free press. Let us hope that General Mac-
Arthur is more discreet than his assistants.
JMPORTANT TO THE COUNTRY as a whole
will be the adverse publicity which discontin-
uance whill throw on the current re-enlistment
program. The passage of Stars and Stripes may
go unnoticed in the civilian world but to that
greatest source of potential recruits, the veterans
who knew and respected "their" paper, the action
will have an all too obvious meaning.
Fine opportunities in the re-enlistment pro-
Firmness or Distrust?
WORLD WAR 11 ended barely seven months
ago; already there is talk of the next war,
and the object of most of that talk is Russia.
For the sake of 'argument, let us say that Rus-
sia is the main threa to the peace. If this be
true, what is the best way to handle the situa-
tion? Be firm, most people say. We heartily agree.

IT seems that over in the Alpha Delta Pi house

self with one fact each New Year. In 1945 she

App el To All
A RECENT REPORT shows that the United
States is consumin more food now than in
its prosperous pre-war years. The rest of the
world is noticeably less fortunate.
In typical "charity begins at home" attitude,
we have either ignored or been ignorant of the
conditions existing beyond our narrow national
President Truman, on the other hand, has
neither ignored nor been ignorant of the facts.
He has appointed former president Herbert
Hoover as chairman of a Famine Committee
consisting of 12 other prominent Americans to
formulate a program through which the people--
the American people-car contribute to alleviate
the situation;-that situation being that thous-
ands of people all over tihe world are starving to
To say that a large contribution from us
is a noble gesture is hardly sufficient. It is the
opportunity to prove that our comments about
the brotherhood of man are sincere, that we
believe in the ability of nations to unite for a
common cause, that we act not only in the
cause of victory, but in the cause of humanity.
THE FACTS show this country to be the prin-
cipal hope for salvation," said the committee
after its first meeting," and we urge our people
to reduce their consumption of bread and wheat
products. Conservation of food oils and fats now
going on should be increased in every possible

Lucky Strike green--we found what was un.-
doubtedly intended for a doilie. Written in vary-
ingsued letters on this innocently-purposed
piece of paper was vital information directed at
ihe average American beer-drinker; to wit, you,
myself, and the guy in the (cner who can't
handle the stuff. We have come away knowing,
but little caring, that the writings of Dr. Sigis-
mund Schultz Goldw ater (1873-1942) form the
backbone of hospital administrative literatpre,
that the hospital which Sam uBard started in 1769
was not completed until 1791, that Dr. William
Beaumont might have been a great guy but
doen't look it.

1''D RATHER 1B RIHT:
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
T IS HARD to believe there will be war with
Russia, for three reasons: the United States
is demobilized, the British don't have a dime, and
the Russians do not want to fight. The excitables
who are predicting war will have to get around
all three reasons, and to dispose of any one
would make a fair day's work.
Of the three great powers, Britain is the
world's largest question-mark, because her future
is the most uncertain. Her very uncertainties
galvanize her toward fantasy, such as the
Churchill day-dream of a British-American mili-
tary alliance. As for the United States, we are
hardly likely to start a war; first because we are
not geared for an offensive move, either by gov-
ernmental setup or tradition, and second, be-
cause we have demobilized. Nor are the Russians
likely to launch a major war; first, because they
have nothing to win; second, because they be-
lieve that world opinion is heading left, especially
in colonial and backward countries, and that
time is on their side; and, third, because by
taking offensive action they would give up their
major propaganda weapon, which is the argu-
ment that capitalism makes wars.
THERE are several alternate roads which
events may take in the next few months or
years, besides that of war, and some of these
may perhaps be listed:
1. Vhe British may decide to use democratic
so(i'alismi as a weapon on the world scene.
2. The British may resolve on moderate
socialism at home, imperialism abroad; but
such a development is not any more likely than
th it s lo birig a out a complee Amer'ican-
" The Russians might k-ave the United Na-
tions, plunging the world Minto a kind of twi-
Those who see the future as black or white,
wax' or peace, miss the point of the whole show,
which is that we are going into a future of intri-
cate and many-sided struggle, which will be
neither peace or war. It is a future in which we
can maintain the democratic way of life, not by
empty belligerence, but by putting on our best
bib and tucker, and making ourselves present-
able, and entering our own valid promise to hu-
manity, in the complex of bids and offers that is
about to be made to it.

Russian attack can come from the
']here wa s considherable fire behnd
the smoke that James F. Byrnes
nmight resign as Secrtary of State
and be replae d by Gen. George Mar-
Real fact is that such a change was
definitely m the works, though now
it may not happen. Reaction to the
trial balloon sent up in the newspa-
per was not good.
Behind the smoke is the fact that
several high-up insiders have been
gunning for Byrnes. Also he and the
President have not always seen eye-
to-eye--especially on Russia. Truman
was especially irked when his Secre-
tary of State, coming back from the
Moscow Conference, released the fin-
al communique before the White
House received it.
Since then, Byrnes has been scru-
pulously careful to show everything
to Truman, Every speech, every
statement is taken over to the White
House well in advance. Byrnes has
leaned over backward in this respect.
However, Byrnes' enemies also
were gunning for him because of
his Russian policy-which they
considered too soft. That may have
been one reason for his recent
tough speech indirectly warning
Russia that it was going too far.
Byrnes also was not enthusiastic
about Winston Churchill's speech at
Fulton. Missouri and the fact that
President Truman's presence on the
same platform appeared to give it
Another point of difference, may
be Truman's Army Day speech sched-
uled for April 6 in Chicago. This
promises to be one of the most im-
portant the President has made on
foreign poliy. The speech is now in
the process of being written, and if
it rattles the sabre too much, Byrnes
might step out. However, it now looks
as if both men were in closer aree-
ment and that the Secretary of State
NOTE--Many insiders feel that
Byrnes is now in a strong position re-
garding Russia. Having shown his
goodwill by going to Moscow and hav-
done his best to work things out with
the Soviet, he can now get tough
without being accused of Red-b'ait-
French political leaders now ex-
