For A Democratic
American Army ...
FORTUNATELY for the American
F people, the U. S. Army big-wigs
have finally come to the conclusion that it is
neither disgraceful nor humiliating to copy the
advanced military techniques, and plans of
organization which have been developed by other
nations. As a result we have begun to put more
emphasis upon aviation, we have begun to
motorize more divisions and we have begun to
try to train soldiers instead of marionettes-
but nothing has been done about improving our
One of the leading correspondents of the
Christian Science Monitor recently wrote a re-
port on the Germany army organization and ex-
plained its superiority to a large extent on the
grounds that the Nazis actually do have a 'dem-
ocratic army.' And it might also be remembered
that the Anzacs (Australian and New Zealand
Army Corps), which is pretty close to'being the
most democratic military force in the world, had
the best troops in the last war and are today
the best soldiers of-the British Commonwealth.
IT'S JUST ABOUT TIME that we start making
our army democratic too.
In Germany there is little favoritism in the
actual conduct of the army - even Hitler knows
that politicians don't make good generals -
and every important officer is a man who has
risen on merit through the ranks. Every officer
compmands the respect and admiration of his
men because the men know that he is the best
available for his position. Every officer eats and
sleeps with his men, helps them in their menial
work whenever possible and even leads them into
But what about the British, French and Amer-
ican armies? In all cases a large percentage of
officers hold their commissions only because
they were fortunate enough to have the wealth
and influence necessary to enter their country's
military academies and become officers. At St.
Cyr iin France and at West Point, for example,
where these nation's future generals are trained,
there are very few who have been allowed in
without political connections.
IN THESE THREE same countries men are (or
were in the case of France) advanced in rank
on the basis of seniority, not merit. When Roose-
velt appointed General Marshall chief of staff,
hundreds of officers in the American army were
enraged because the President had disregarded
the fact that some men who had been in the
army longer than Marshall and had made his
appointment on the basis of merit.
As long as inexperienced young boys, veterans
of only four years at West Point or some college
ROTC, are put in command of well trained and
experienced men who actually have to teach
their officers, our military esprit de corps will
be far below the standard we would like to have.
The time for reform is now - not when we start
sending another A.E.F. overseas.
WITH THE DECLINE of the old Prussian aris-
tocracy, Germany has built up the greatest
military force in the history of the world and
intelligent Americans should realize that to de-
feat the Reich it will be necessary to "clean up
our own back yard" and get rid of our own

THE BROADCAST That Was Never
Heard: Raymond Gram Swing
enjoys the reputation of being one
of the country's better radio com-
mentators. Recently he left for Lon-
don to do a series of short wave
broadcasts to this country. Before
he left, Mr. Swing prepared a re-
cording to be used in the event he
did not arrive in London in time for
his first broadcast. In it he enum-
erated the things he expected to find
". . .I do not expect to find
everything heroically and magnifi-
cently superior in Britain. I expect
British morale to be sound and
amazing. But I do not expect it to
be something to accept as a settled
and final miracle.
" .Administratively I shall ex-
pect to find the same sort of clum-
siness that is true of any vast govern-
ment body dealing with an emergen-
cy . . . I am not sure of finding a
preview of a solution of some of the
major domestic conflicts in Britain
. They are not pulling together
for anything more than a united war
". . . I shall be surprised if there
is anything like a conscious, team
sense of rebuilding a better Britain
socially after the war.
As to the U.S., I expect to
find two minds in Great Britain. One
part will be impatient to have Ameri-
ca enter the war. The other part of
the British mind will have more
knowledge of American problems and
hence a greater appreciation of what
this country is contributing.
". . . As to the British war
strength, I expect to find that it has
grown steadily and substantially dur-
ing the past winter and spring. Bri-
tain has not been working on a pro-
gram for hanging on. It has been
working on a program for overtaking
Germany's war effort. As I foresee
the industrial scene it will be much
more intense and all-embracing than
in this country. A far greater por-
tion of the population will be taking
part in it."
One of our brothers under the
skin, columnist Driscoll, recently
wrote about his pet dog in glowing
terms. "The other day, the mistress
being away, he (the dog) ate up
Prince Fluf's muzzle."
Wonder how much more delectable
the mistress would have been?
J HAVE A FRIEND who had always
wanted to meet a Kentucky col-
onel, a real genuine one. Once he vis-
ited the Blue Grass State, and was in-
troduced to one. The old fellow an-
swered the ideal in every respect, in-
cluding the goatee and white hair.
My friend, who was a Northerner,
by the way, asked the Colonel if he
had voted for Mr. Roosevelt for a
first term. Getting an affirmative
answer, the Question was repeated,
about a second term and a like answer
Then, and before the question could
be asked a third time the white-
haired old Colonel shook his finger in
the Northerner's face and said, "Yes,
sah, and I voted for him for a third
term, too, and if you damn Republi-
cans don't quit voting for Roosevelt,
you're going to bring ruin on the
TO THE EDITOR
Sandburg And Lincoln
To the Editor:
One of the highlights of the New
Education Conference was the talk
given by Carl Sandburg-the Michi-
gan Poet, who spoke on "The Peo-
ple, Yes." His brief reference to his
book on Abraham Lincoln-to my
mind was very important, because it
inspired the following:
The Getysburg Address-Message
Nearly four score years ago, at
Gettysburg-our great President and
Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, ad-
monished us that our fathers brought
forth on this continent a new nation
conceived in Liberty and Dedicated to
the proposition that all men are cre-
Now the world-and we,the Unit-
ed States-are engaged in a great
war., We, for the time being only
morally and financially and to a
small extent (as far as we laymen
know) physically, testing whether
nations conceived by Hitler and Mus-
solini can long endure. It is fitting
and proper that we rededicate, re-
consecrate our efforts so that the
struggle through the ages of Freedom
and Democracy can survive. The
world will long remember what we
do-so that what We and the Allies

WASHINGTON-It has not leaked out yet,
but the State Department carried its appease-
ment policy toward Japan to remarkable lengths
recently when it shielded two Japanese officials
caught cold in espionage-one of them with U.S.
naval secrets in his possession.
In one case, Lieut. Commander Itaru Tati-
bana, though held on $50,000 bail, was permitted
to return to Japan. In the other case, J. Edgar
Hoover's G-men were not perlitted by the State
Department even to make an arrest.
A Japanese foreign language officer was in-
volvea among the 34 spies arrested by Hoover in
New York recently. Hoover's men had the goods
on him, but before they could arrest him they
had to consult the State Department, which said
No explanations were given. A language of-
ficer is a Japanese who is in the United States
studying English and is a representative of the
Japanese Government, but does not have diplo-
In the case of Lieut. Commander Tatibana,
the G-Men and Naval Intelligence trailed him
for one year, during which he and Charlie Chap-
lin's former houseman, a Japanese, paid several
the release of Americans imprisoned in another
country. But in these cases there was no swap.
Officers of the Japanese Government caught in
espionage were simply permitted to go scot free.
Mothers who have difficulty inducing Junior
to eat his carrots will be interested to know that
the OPM priorities division also is having its
troubles with this well-known vegetable. One of
the daffiest cases confronting priorities experts
is whether carrot juice is a defense essential.
Specifically, the experts are trying to decide
if a Seattle, Washington, concern should con-
tinue to receive supplies of aluminum for the
manufacture of a gadget which extracts juice
from carrots and other vegetables. Wrote the
"Carrot juice is being widely used and recom-
mended for pilots, army truck drivers and others
as an aid in overcoming fatigue, night blindness,
and to build up vitality and stamina. In addition,
fresh fruit and vegetable juices are recognized
by government nutrition experts as vital sources
of valuable vitamins and minerals required for
the public health and safety."
