HEARST NEWSPAPERS in 1898 throbbed with.
war hysteria, premature announcements,
toreador's tactics that culminated in the Span-
ish American War. For at least three weeks now,
Hearst columnist Walter Winchell has scared
the public with the announcement, "the third
world war is on, from Greece to Manchuria ..."
Drew Pearson has produced Trieste as a po-
tential Sarajevo. All the elements are here-
a waning empire that sees its last chance in
war, an economic system on the defense, mil-
lions of men under arms, statesmen who get
"tougher" daily-and now the opinion ma-
In 1938, when there were enslaved peoples to
be liberated, principles to be defended, the "in-
terests" were on the pacifist side; so much was
lost by the postponement then, that the terms
"millions of lives", "millions of dollars" are al-
most meaningless today seven years later. It was
not so in 1913, however. Then as now, there were
plenty of people anxious to talk the world into
Disabled Vets.. .
ONLY ONE-NINTH of all disabled veterans
who are applying for jobs are finding them,
says General Omar N. Bradley, chief of the vet-
Gen. Bradley emphasized his statement with
facts and figures saying that in August 1944
placements and applications for jobs for the
disabled veterans were about equal. By June
1945 twice as many handicapped veterans were
applying for jobs as succeeded in getting them.
By November it was five times, and the figure
is now nearly nine times as many. Finally in
January 1946 nearly 52,009 handicapped vet-
erans of World War II applied for jobs while
only a little over 6,000 got them.
Strikes and reconversion processes can account
for some of the obstacles to the finding of jobs
by disabled veterans. Yet we cannot be so opti-
mistic as to think that with the end of the Gene-
ral Motors strike and others that these industries
will absorb the 46,000 disabled veterans who ap-
plied for jobs in January and did not get them.
The percentage of unemployment among the
disabled will go down, but will it go down
enough? What can be done if it doesn't?
E NGLAND has instituted a law that partially
eliminates the problem of employment for
her disabled. This jaw will be enforced next year
and will require many types of industry to hire
at least two per cent disabled or crippled veter-
ans. This is to be two per cent of the entire per-
sonnel of the industry. The law is enforceable
by fines and is designed to pr6vide employment
for all those disabled who are in any way em-
Thus, England has done something about
the problem of her disabled in the post-war
world rather than leaving it up to the personal
policies and obligations of private industry.
Gen. Bradley's statement implies that the
United States has not assumed this obligation
to her veterans.
Within a few weeks new figures will be com-
giled from industries now functioning again

THIS concerns the letter written by Mr. Carl B.
Kaufmann, which appeared in The Daily of
It is unfortunate but not too important that
the Youth For Christ movement cannot make
its posters pleasing to the eyes of some indi-.
viduals or receive its contributions from the
"right people." The point to consider is that
YFC rallies are conducted in the atmosphere
of a Saturday night party with mainly an emo-
tional appeal to be "saved." Some are much
the same as old fashioned revival meetings
complete with insistence on enthusiastic sing-
ing and a few corny jokes to help improve in-
terest. The desire to decrease delinquency in
the teen-age group is commendable, but sure-
ly the members of this group are old enough
to learn some of the facts of life and deserve
more than Youth For Christ has to offer. The
old concept of faith without works and of a
simple way to salvation is dead. There is no
simple or easy way. The way to being a Chris-
tian is often as difficult to follow and it re-
quires discipline, thought, and action.
The idea that it is only necessary to believe and
accept can lead people to a great many un-
Christian actions. For example, there are some
fundamentalist members of the clergy in this
country who even go as far as to praise the Ku
Klux Klan and the America Firsters in the name
of the church, and then there are the clergy in
some more backward countries who, while being
fairly well-to-do stand for the status quo and
console the poor by telling them that their re-
ward will be in heaven. There are countless
church laymen who believe that the best thing
in life is to be saved. What about service? 1t is
not enough to believe.
It has been said that a inan cannot be noral
and live in an immoral society, but it is cer-
tainly true that society can be no more moral
than its members. It is the church's job to in-
terpret, instruct, and inspire. Consideration of
the present selfish national attitude and the
selfishness of a great variety of groups and in-.
dividuals will show that it hasn't been too
successful in promoting Christian ideals. Some
people are too busy to be bothered with be-
ing unselfish and developing a moral code and
a creed. Some don't realize what the church
can do for them if they meet it halfway. A
great many don't know any better because their
parents did not see fit to include religious edu-
cation in their childhood training. The trouble
with Youth For Christ and others is that in
preaching the old fashioned religion with a
literal interpretation of the Bible, they not
only fail to put across the teachings of Jesus,
but they disgust thousands of thinking men
and women, who unfortunately identify the
Christian Church with out-dated, fundamen-
That part of the church which has a workable
program for the personal, local, national and
international application of Christian ideals
should receive the active support of everyone.
How else can this world be made a fit place in
which to live?
By DREW PEARSON
WASHINGTON-There has been so much Sen-
ate furore over President Truman's Pauley-
esque appointments that one official quietly took
the oath the other day almost unnoticed. He is
o. Max Gardner, ex-Governor of North Carolina,
now Under Secretary of the Treasury, an early
planner of the New Deal, but first and foremost
a friend of man.
Max Gardner came to Washington in 1933
with the Roosevelt Administration. When he-
arrived, he did exactly the opposite of Ed Paul-
ey. He opened a law office, but simultaneously
he resigned from the Democratic National
Committee. Politics and a personal law prac-
tice, he felt, did not mix. If Ed Pauley had done
the same, no important voice would have been
raised against him in the Senate.
Before he came to Washington, Max Gardner,
then Governor of North Carolina, had come to
know Franklin D. Roosevelt, then Governor of
New York. And, on July 22, 1932, just after Roose-
velt's nomination, Gardner wrote him a letter
suggesting the New Deal and setting down with
amazing foresight the left-of-center policy which
Roosevelt later followed.
Devises New Deal
"It is my opinion," Gardner wrote FDR, "that
the American people are on the move, and I
firmly believe that your liberalism, if you go far
enough, is bound to have a stabilizing effect in
its appeal to the ultimate hope of the nation. If
I were you, I would become more liberal, because
I tell you the masses are marching and if we are
to save this nation, it has got to be saved by the
liberal interpretations of the sentiments now
ruling in the hearts of men.
"I am satisfied that we are in the day of a
New Deal and that many of our preconceived
ideas and formulas are going to be thrown into
the discard. We are more than blind if we can
think the American people will stand hitched
to the status quo.
"The camp fires of the past are being aban-
doned and the frontiers of thinking have ex-
THE prime comedy of errors of the past year
ended yesterday. President Truman withdrew
the nomination of Ed Pauley to be Undersecre-
tary of the Navy.
It should be made clear at the beginning that
Ed Pauley is no great man in my life. Maybe he's
as crooked as Ickes claims. You could search the
entire country and not find many oil-men who
didn't have a little dirt on their hands.
There were, however, other important consid-
erations in the fight against Pauley's confirma-
tion. As far as those considerations are con-
cerned, the American people draw a big round
egg . . . they never did see the ball.
In the first place, Harold Ickes emerged from
the fight as one of the "foremost progressives in
the United States. He has been mentioned for
a top post in the PAC. He has been suggested as
the liberal candidate for Governor of Illinois.
I submit that all of this glory for Harold Ickes
is completely undeserved. He has emerged from
the Pauley battle, as was noted above, with a
great amount of fame. He was, so it is said, a
martyr to his own honesty.
That's nonsense ... Harold Ickes was a mar-
tyr to his own desire to be a martyr. For forty
years he has been trying to squirm to a high
spot on the political cross and there drive a
spike through his own chest . . . all the while
screaming: "Look what they are doing to me!"
Congratulations Harold, you finally made it.
NOBODY in the world but Ickes would be so
smugly proud of having been guilty of an act
of common honesty. There are probably a dozen
people in any drug store in the country on Sat-
urday night who would, and could, have done the
job as well as Ickes. All that you have to do is
just sit up there and tell the facts. Does that
take any great political sagacity, or any super-
human honesty? It's not that Ickes is egotistical.
As William James said about Bradley: "He's a
very humble-minded man, but he's so much
more humble-minded about his readers than
about himself, that it gives him that false air
of arrogance." That's Ickes too . . . he's certain
that, in the entire world, there are no other hon-
He's also certain that, in the entire world, there
are no other capable men. He has steadfastly op-
posed the Missouri Valley Authority bill because
his Dept. of the Interior would not have juris-
diction. He and Senator Kenneth McKellar have
been the foremost opponents of TVA . . . Ickes
again because his department did not have con-
trol. McKellar is the poll-taxer from Tennessee
whose chief claim to our attention is that for
forty years he has been Boss Crump's chief
spokesman in the Senate. A strange bed-fellow
for a progressive. Any investigation of Ickes'
actions in relation to TVA and MVA will reveal
one of the most irresponsible public servants in
There's one other thing that is rore im-
portant than Ickes or Pauley. That is the way
that this fervent crusade against Pauley man-
aged to monopolize the attention of the liber-
als. The big trouble with crusades is that they
tend to exhibit more moral fervor than in-
telligence, and this one was no exception. While
we were defeating Pauley's nomination." Geo.
Allen (a really questionable tool of big fin-
ance) was approved as a director of the Re-
construction Finance Corporation where he
will exercise control over government lending
to private indtry. The Army has almost
achieved its purpose of getting control of ato-
mic energy. The plan for peace-time military
conscription has again gathered momentum.
All of these things happened while we were
IT reminds me of a story that a friend of mine
once told me. He had been a foreign corres-
pondent in the Mediterranean area from 1918
to 1925 and described the tactics used by the
fascists in Italy and in Turkey to seize power.
They would announce that such-and-such had
become a public issue; and then for several
months they would headline it in the newspapers
every day and conduct elaborate public opinion
polls on the subject. Finally they would announce
that the plan was being dropped because public
opinion was against it. Two weeks later, when
everybody had tired of the issue, they would
quietly let it slide into effect. It's the old trick
of crying, "Wolf".
We should be smarter than that. We've just
been allowed the emotional and moral satisfac-
tion of rejecting a bad appointment, while
much more important goals were being accom-
plished without our notice. We liberals will some-
day learn that it's never safe to turn our backs.
tended beyond the limit heretofore held sacred
by the conservative minds of this country."
Down in his home state, some North Carolin-
ians haven't always considered Gardner a liberal.
One of these is Josephus Daniels, ex-Secretary
of the Navy, who for years has attacked the
"Gardner machine," which has appointed judges,
elected governors and put Max's own brother-in-
law in the Governor's Mansion and the Senate.
SOMETIMES after Josephus had blasted Max
' with his most scorching editorials, Governor
and Mrs. Gardner would invite the Daniels to
dinner. Josephus would say Grace, they would
forget the editorial blasts in the morning paper,
and all would be pleasant-for the evening.

It was noted with hope that sev-
eral members of the University ad-
ministration were on hand last night
to take a cue from the Junior Girls'
offering for the year. Running
through the difficulties of the re-
turning vet in finding a place to live,
the production ends happily to prove
that "There's Room For All."
The chief difficulty in producing
a satire on college life is that with
so much to satirize, the temptation
to take it all in at one shot is often
irresistable. Although the girls stayed
fairly well within the lines of the
plot, the obvious, yet unrelated mock-
eries managed to creep in at times.
In brief, the play opens with Dick,
an unhappy vet, and Agnes, his wife,
finding hope in an old buddy - the
kind of a guy who can get it for you
wholesale - who has a friend with
an apartment house for sale. Buy-
ing the house and moving in with
two other couples, they settle down
to bridge and study - only to learn
that their next-door neighbor, the
Bathtub Brewery, is about to take
over the house. The conflict is final-
ly resolved when another friend, a
student of law, remembers an old
case in whih it was ruled that a ten-
nant cannot be evicted against his
