WASHINGTON-The other night U. S. infan-
try troops were swimming a river in North Car
clna in a practice commando"raid. As they
reached the other side, one officer remarked:
"I'll bet this is the first time in history that a
Justice of the United Supreme Court ever swam
a river at night with a pack on his back."
He was referring to Lt. Col. Frank Murphy,
now on temporary vacation from the Supreme
Court, who turned up in Washington for the spy
trial last week looking very bronzed, and singing
the praises of the U. S. Army. Justice Murphy
has been living in the field for seven weeks, go-
ing on long marches, once spending three days
and two nights without sleep, and coming to
know intimately the American soldier.
As a result, he reported to high Washington
officials that in his opinion the American soldier
was the best-looking in the world, the best fed,
and Vith the best hygiene. He also paid tribute
to the type of young officers the army has been
putting in high positions.
"In this war," Murphy said, "our tough young
generals will be giving orders from the field, not
the background. They are out leading their
troops with knives at their sides and Tommy
guns strapped on their shoulders: We are devel-
oping some great young officers."
Murphy also praised Secretary of War Stim-
son and Chief of Staff Marshall for the vastness
of the war program and the way it had been en-
Note:-Justice Murphy goes to Ft. Knox Aug.

for his own transportation and food.
Queen Wilhemina's Pancakes
Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands has
learned the joys of American pancakes.
Coming south through New England on her
special car, she went into the diner for breakfast,
scanned the menu. A State Department official
accompanying her ordered hot cakes and maple
"What is that?" inquired the Queen.
"Your Majesty should try them," suggested the
offici , and he placed two orders.

When the hot cakes were brought, he gave
the Queen careful instructions in the art of
placing a pat of butter between two hot cakes.
Then he suggested she try a few bites first with-
out syrup, then with syrup.
The Queen was delighted, and, like any house-
wife tasting a new dish, she asked if she might
have the recipe.
'Vage Stabilizatioln
Inside reason for holding up the vital question
of stabilizing wages is a hot backstage row over
who will do the stabilizing, although all presi-
dential advisers agree Vlat wages must be stabil-
ized if the cost of living is to be kept down,
The row has almost reached the proportions of
the one which threatened on Capitol Hill if the
President had followed his first plan and asked
Congress to pass wage legislation.
When the President changed his mind regard-
ing legislation and d'cided to act by Executive
Order instead, OPA's General Counsel David
Ginsberg prepared the necessary papers for
establishing a Wage Policy Commission. This
was to have been headed by Gov. Lehman of
New York, with j wer to issue directives on wag-
es to all Government departments.
But immediately half a dozen other agencies
bobbed up with the idea that the wage stabiliza-
tion issue should be turned over to them. And the
legal staffs of the Treasury and War Manpower
Commission got together and wortced oat a sub-
stitute executive order by which the Wage Policy
Commission was to be headed by able Wayne Coy
of the Budget Bureau.
Meanwhile members of the War Labor Board
hinted that they would resign en masse if any
other agency started issuing wage directives to
That's where the matter stands today, with.
N. Y. Judge Sam Rosenman, intimate friend of
the President, and Supreme Court Justice
Byrnes, equally trusted friend, delegated by FDR
to see if they can work out some plan on which
all warring factions will agree.

Second Front
Up To Roosevelt . .
T HERE have been enough 'grand-
stand' generals in the past month
handing out free information on how to go
about establishing a second front to form an
army by themselves .. . and we are not excep-
But to these back seat tank drivers, one thing
fhould be made clear: The commander-in-chief
of the United States Army and Navy is still the
President. Thus, the person who ultimately d-
termines whether or not we invade and when, is
also the President.
This man whom we have entrusted to direct
our war effort is not to be considered a dupe of
the brass-hats, but rather a reasonably well-
informed man, who to all purposes appears to
be interested in aiding the Russians and winning
the war.
Certain facts must be collected when we ask
ou.rselves what the goverinment is doing about
establishing a second front.
1.) In maintaing relations with Vichy, Pres-
ident Roosevelt chose Admiral Leahy, a man
hfot groomed for the Homburg hats of the
State Department and apparently of the Pres-
ident's own choice. Thus it must be allowed
that Mt. Roosevelt had some hand in main-
taining relations with Vichy.
2.) This sante Leahy has been chosen by the
President as assistant Comrnder-in-Chief
of the Army and Navy and iis to be pre-
sumed that Admiral Leahy gained some infor-
mation of the terrain during his brief stay in
The point we wish to make is this: There is
much criticism of our withholding from inva-
sion, but there is every evidence of preparations
r invasion, even to the probable choice of bat-
tle ground--France. The people, then, are criti-
cizing the type of invasion we intend, rather
than the actual question of invasion itself.
The question has come u before our states-
men whether we shall have a 'sacrifice invasion'
comparable to a Dunkirk, or whether we shall
roll up momentum letting the Russians take a
beating in the meantime and eventually strike
with top force ourselves. The latter course
appears, to have been chosen. But in all events
the credit or blame for the decision is President
Roosevelt's and all arrows aimed at brass-hats
e-r silk-hats are simply misdirected.
Raymond Clapper, one of the 'inside' colum-
nists in Washington, freely admitted in yester-
day's column his own lack of knowledge.
"And the second front? What point is there
tn civilians trying to give advice? Roosevelt and
Churchill want a second front as soon as it can
hb opened. Only they and the military know the
facts sufficiently to make an intelligent deci-
We don't ask for blind acceptance, but along
military lines a certain amount of faith must be
ha.d in our elected statesmen if not our generals.
The fact remains that most of the people who
are clamoring for a sacrifice' front would be
the first ones to criticize the administration for
its unnecessary loss of American blood, and for
its inefficient prosecution of the war.

9 Roosevelt'g Choice Welcomed In New York Gubernatorial Race

NE of the most important developments of
the summer, war news notwithstanding, was
the President's decision to take an active part
in the New York gubernatorial campaign. His
endorsement of Sen. James M. Mead following a
series of conferences with New York political
leaders was a hopeful sign of renewed interest
in donestic politics. It is an interest the Presi-
dent needs to maintain, short, of course, of
spending time here that should go to the war
effort. Domestic politics are his forte. They
are solid ground under his feet. They are his
pipeline to the moods and thinking of the
American people. Some of the most astute
among the men around the President hadc be-
come concerned about his total preoccupation
with the strategy of worldwide war. They
thought he was losing touch with the country
and that this loss accounted for his unnecessary
hesitancy about imposing the controls necessary
to keep' the domestic economy geared to the
requirements of war. They felt that he. was
underestimating the extent of his victory over
the former isolationists, the solidarity of public
support of the war effort and the eagerness of
the people for strong and exacting leadership.
Political Plunge Good For Mead
A plunge into the hurly-burly of politics, even
if it did not extend beyond the confines of his
home state, would be good for him. The admin-
istration's stake in the New York contest, while
a secondary consideration, was well worth play-
ing for. Primarily it was control over the state's
Democratic organization-the organization that
will in turn control New York's big delegation
at the Democratic national convention of 1944.
Former Postmaster General James A. Farley,
who is still Democratic chairman of New York,
had made his bid for this control by lining up
what he claimed was a substantial majority of
delegates picked by local leaders to attend the
state convention in August and pledging them
to State Attorney General John J. Bennett for
Governor. Bennett had been neither fish nor
fowl in the pre-Pearl Harbor fight over fore; n
policy, More important, he was Farley's man.
Mead, by contrast, had a clear record of New
Deal support both in the House and the Senate
on foreign as well as domestic policy. And he
was Roosevelt's man.
Nineteen forty-four is a long way off at the
rate world events are marching. But it is not
too soon to think about it. If by that time the
war isnot yet won, or if the war has been won
but the peace not yet made, then some people
will begin to demand another term for President
Roosevelt. If such a demand should arise, it
will come from the people and not the politi-
cians. Jim Farley is only one of many politi-
cians who could be relied upon to fight it
Farley Misunderstood
Ignoring this issue and returning to the pres-
ent: Jim Farley is today one of the most mis-
understood men in public life but the misun-

Since then Farley has been as bitter as he pre-
viously was sweet. He used every trick in the
bag in his effort to prevent a third-term nomi-
nation. Since Chicago the sharpness of his mal-
ice against the President and the endlessness of
his supporting complaints have shocked and
annoyed even some of Roosevelt's severest
Farley's Removal Necessary
Depriving Farley of what remains of his po-
litical bower has become a desirable and, per-
haps, a necessary chore. The nomination and
election of Jim Mead would do it. Mead himself
may be no ball df fire, but his record is unim-
peachable and his bent is honestly liberal. As
to sature, he does not suffer by comparison
with neither Bennett or Thomas E. Dewey, the
probable Republican nominee. Barring some
sudden change in the temper of the voters, there
seems to be little question that Mead, bolstered
by the prestige of the New Deal downstate and
his own political standing upstate, can lick
Dewey without any trouble. He is the only
Democrat with the asset of upstate acceptability
who can have the support of the American La-
bor Party. Mead is an excellent candidate by
any measure.
The setup is almost perfect for the President's
purposes. He must be getting some chuckles out
of it by way of dividend. T]pe political pundits,
as if reciting a nursery rhyme in unison, warned
at the first sign of nresidential concern with
the New York situation that people would prop-
erly resent White House interference in local
politics, that the President was wasting time he
should be devoting to the war and that a Roose-
velt-Farley split in the Democratic Party might
elect Dewey. Mark Sullivan, David Lawrence
and Frank Kent all got easy columns out of this
thesis. The New York Daily News, after making
it plain that'it would support Dewey in any case,
started campaigning for Bennett. When its
position was used by the Mead followers as an
argument against Bennett's nomination, The
News came through with a suggestion that the
Democrats draft Governor Lehman for another
term. As a reward to the Democrats if they fol-
lowed his advice, Captain Joseph Patterson
prcmised that his paper would give Lehman a
fair break in its news columns in a Lehman-
Dewey campaign. Obviously The News, like the
rest of the Deweyites. preferred anything to a
campaign against a Roosevelt-endorsed liberal
and pre-Pcarl Harbor interventionist.
FDR Interference Not Resented
The alarums of sullivan, Lawrence and Kent
had about the same, alert substance as yawns
frcm Wynken, Blyken and NOd. New Yorkers
are accustomed to hear from Franklin D. Roose-
velt, fellow New Yorker, at campaign times.
They don't consider his political opinions inter-
ference, as the people of certain Southern states
did in the so-called purge campaign of 1938. As
for the President's time, the New York campaign
has occupied about as much of it as his cigarette
smoking. The solicitude bf Roosevelt's critics
