Preparation Against
Attack Possibility . .
WITH the extension of the draft period
now almost a certainty, America is
learning another lesson in regard to democracy
and the rest of the world. Irrespective of our
like or dislike of the extension step, we are being
;orced to realize that even across the oceans, we
can't live alone and like it. Despite our natural
inclinations, we must modify our way of life to
keep up with the forces of totalitarianism, even
at the expense of our own personal comfort.
When conscription was voted in, the people
of the United States thought they were making
the supreme sacrifice, for compulsory military
service had never been a part of this govern-
ment's policy. There were many protests then
because some of the people believed that we're
different over here, and in a uniqe position of
safety which made compulsory military training
merely an added burden for the youth of Amer.
ica to bear. ~
ND NOW, with ;the period of training to be
lengthened, the sanie protests are being
raised again. The accusation has been made
that this is just a preface to war, that our sol-
diers need more training to prepare them for the
war the United States is going to enter shortly.
Certainly this possibility cannot be snuffed off
lightly. There is always the chance ,that the
brass hats will be over-anxious to test out their
{theories in actual warfare, and thus precipitate
A situation from which war would be inevitable.
But there is another side to' the matter, too.
We must recognize the possibility that we may
be attacked through no direct fault of our own.
The probabilities of such an attack are remote,
but nevertheless, they remain possible. And while
they remain possible, we must be prepared to
meet that attack. At present, if we ever were
Attacked, it would not be by a raw conscript
army, but rather one seasoned with the toughest
sort of experience and well versed in all the
tricks of the trade that are best learned under
actual battle conditions.
ELEASING million men from the army at one
time, just because they have served a year,
will create a tangle that will not aid the mili-
tary situation in any way whatsoever. Men
must be held in service until they are suffi-.
ciently trained to have a fighting chance should
actual war come. Naturally, there is the other
side also, that if some arbitrary period is nt
set, the "training" period could well extend for
years, since every year's activities adds to the
knowledge that a trainee should have to be a
finished soldier. Along this line, Senator Taft's
compromise measure for the gradual release of
selectees after a period of about 18 months
training is as good as any that can be suggested.
Instead of a flood of men entering and leaving
the army each year, we would have a steady
flow, but under control, so that a balance is
TN any draft extension, we are taking a risk.
We are aware that large armies are danger-
ous, for soldiers without action grow stale, and
the militarists are in constant fear of that. We
risk a plunge into war because some people will
feel that with a well trained army, we can beat
anybody. We risk an attitude of over-confidence,
a military dictatorship. But if we aren't willing
to risk that, we have an even greater risk to

WASHINGTON-Secretary Stimson was tell-
ing the absolute truth when hd-denied that the
discovery of a time-bomb was responsible for
keeping ten Japanese ships out of the Panama
Canal. For this was not the reason.
Real reason why the Carnal was barred to the
Japanese was the discovery that two of their
ships were floating bazaars being rushed to the
east coast of South America to grab off the
trade which Axis operators were forced to aban-
don as a result of the U.S. blacklist.
APPARENTLY the Japs had a tip that the
blacklist was going to be issued, because the
two ships hastily left the west coast and were
waiting to go through the Canal, when suddenly
the blacklist was published. Equipped with
elaborate merchandizing displays, and carrying
high-powered, Spanish-speaking salesmen, the
ships were literal arsenals of economic warfare.
With them, the Japanese would have invaded
the most lucrative rarkets in Latin America be-
fore either the U.S. or the Latin Americans
could have moved to block them.
Women's Tax Rights
Representative Frank ("Doc' Crowther 01
New York, high-ranking GOP member of the
House Ways and Means Committee, occupied
the center of the stage when House Republicans
caucused behind closed doors on the $3,500,-
000,000 defense tax bill.
However, it was Mrs. Frances P. Bolton, Ohio's
charming wid6w legislator, who stole the show
with a firebrand lecture on "Women's Rights."
CROWTHER had just begun explaining the
,section of the bill requiring husbands and
wives to file joint income returns, which he
vigorously supported in committee, when Mrs.
Bolton, who is just as vigorously opposed, jumped
to her feet.
"I would like to ask the gentleman," she in-
quired, tartly, "if any women were called before
the Ways and Means Committee, while this bill
was being considered, to testify in defense of
the Ameri an home?"
"The lofty subject to which the lady from Ohio
refers was not discussed to my knowledge,"
grinned Crowther. "No one, man, woman or
child, came before the committee and asked to a
be heard, though we held lengthy hearings and
listened to many witnesses on various phases
of the tax question."
"Well, if you had given American women a
chance to be heard," shot back Mrs. Bolton, "you
wouldn't have approved this outrageous joint-
returns section. It takes us back to the days
of feudalism, when a man was lord and ma ter
of the home and his wifewas considered liftle
more than a chattel."
THEN, waving an admonishing finger at her
colleagues, ; Mrs. Bolton continued: "This
part of the tax bill is an invasion of the home.
It says that a wife must pool whatever earnings
she makes with her husband's income. It does
not recognize her as an individual or a wage-
earner, but as a subservient chattel.
"Mary my words, the women of the country
will rise up if Congress writes this attack on
their independence into law.".
Mrs. Bolton's oratorical effort won a rousing
ovation from her male colleagues, but no votes.
Joint returns are calculated to bring in over
$300,000,000 of additional revenue
Note: Mrs. Bolton is one of the wealthiest
members of Congress.
'You're In The Army Now'
While there will be a lot of noisy breast-
beating in the opposition, you can write this
down as certain:
1. Congress will approve the retention of
the National Guard and selectees in the
2. The House will pass the $3,500,000,000
defense tax bill in the form recommended
by the Ways and Means Committee.
UNDER the restricted debate rules of the
House, action on Army retention will take
only a few days. The Senate melee will last
longer. The isolationist-appeasement bloc will
take advantage of theissue to unleash a wide-

was Senator Burt Wheeler's conduct during the
consideration of the War Department's "draft
property" bill.
The Montanan clawed it from stem to stern,
and then ducked out of the Senate and was
nowhere around when the far-reaching measure
was adopted without even a roll call.
The House will pass the tax bill chiefly be-
cause the rank-and-file know little about it and
Ways and Means tax measures are always ap-
provd. The process will reqtiire about a week.
BUT in the Senate it will be different.
The Senate Finance Committee will sub-
ject the bill to a microscopic scrutiny, requiring
at least a month. Next the committee will start
writing its own bill, which, based on past per-
formances, is certain to differ in important de-
tails from the House measure.
Chances are that the tax issue will not reach
the Senate floor befdre October; so that Nov. 1
is an early guess for the legislation finally to
reach the White House for Roosevelt's signature.

s noted for his wit. His favorite one goes
something like this:
The eminent educator will brag to anyone
about his musical ability. "Why, my musical
ability once saved my life."
"How was that?" someone will ask.
"Well," the prof will answer, gunning for the
kill, "when I was a small boy there was a great
flood in our town. When the water reached our
house, my father hopped on a bed and floated
down-stream on it until he was rescued."
"And what did you do?" the sucker will ask.
"Well," he'll answer with all the glibness of
1 connoisseur, "I accompanied him on the piano."

HE BUSINESS STAFF requests that I print
the following communication received in
their office:
Dear Editor:--
Will you please send me a copy of The
Michigan! Daily, dated July 18, 1941, as I
wish to read an article in it which is an illus-
tration very fitting to use in my course which
I am taking this summer.
Thanking you,
I am Very truly,
That's all there was: no name, no address,
no nothing. If the author will send us his name
and address the business staff says they might
be able to do business with him.
jF you've been downtown lately you will have
seen the huge bin of aluminum pots and-pans
on the lawn of the courthouse. Got to thinking
the other night as I drove past that it would be
the Arsene Lupin feat of the year for someone
to steal that pile. Make quite a story, too.
Reminds me for no particular reason of a
corny pun I once heard. Q. What's the greatest
feat of strength ever performed? A. Wheeling,
West Virginia. (Loud laughter).
And I wonder if anyone followed the sugges-
tion of the WCTU and gave their aluminum
cocktail shaker to the fund. If you start giving
up things like that it would take all the joy
out of life and the world wouldn't be worth
fighting for . . .
THERE'S a cooling breeze coming in the win-

Of Mikes & Men
THE RADIO REALM is virtually
vibrating with so much momen-
tous we have to summon restraint
to keep these air-lines from verging
toward rave-lengths. (That declara-
tion, incidentally, and purely coinci-
dentally, poses the two titles most
aptly suggested for heading the col-
umn. Remember that contest we
instigated? Lots of fun resulted,
even a few California offers . . . But
since the composing-pom boys set
up so many stock heads of Mikes &
Men, we've decided to carry on
thus . . . )

It is today that everyone interested
in public service programs and "The
Woman's Place in Radio" can come
to hear the foremost authority on
these subjects speak--in the, Rack-
ham Amphitheatre at 4:15 p.m. Then
Miss Judith Cary Waller, educational
director of the central division of
the NBC, will discuss her work with
all students of broadcasting, as well
as the general public. Need more be
said? See you there ..

For those with the propensity for
humorous poetry, tuning in on WJR
at 4:45 p.m. today will bring a pro-
gram of verse from students taking
radio drama from Don Hargis. These
people include Joan Sack, Marvin
Levey, Thelma Davis, Edward Webb,
Helene Heeney and Claire Cook.
Tomorrow, at the same time, an
adaptation by W. W. Jacobs (nice
initials for radio) will be presented
by the students of Professor Abbot.
While Edward Webb announces,
Grace Roszel, Eileen Wilkin, George
Batka, John Hansen and Edward
Wright will perform.

for cash prizes, trips to New York,

sity scholarship for the fortunate
Of the five mid-western education-
al institutions selected for the con-
test, the University of Michigan was
chosen, along with Indiana, Ohio,
and Wisconsin. Penn State and Ala-
bama are included in the five East-
ern universities, Mr. Blumer revealed.
All contestants will have their
singing voices transcribed on Master
records, from which individual discs
will be made so ghat the 30 members
of the orchestra can listen and then
vote to choose their own cohort.
From each of the 10 campuses two
girls will be picked, a winner and
alternate, to receive $100 and $50
prizes, and expenses paid to New
York. Five girls will then be selected
from recording auditions, three of
whom receive $1,000 each, then one
of these, the four-year $1,000 schol-
arship at her University. Thus the
"Hour of Charm" will assume' the
"Pot O' Gold" aspect-even "Life+
Can Be Beautiful" to those coeds
who come through.
