only
Ingersoll Needed
On Domestic Front.
P OST-DECEMBER PATRIOTS and
all the back-biting critics of the
government's war effort have finally found their
long-awaited chance to smother the United
States' No. 1 crusader against the Axis, Ralph
ingersoll's PM. But they starved a long time
efore the chance came. No matter how hard
they knifed in the back, no matter what charges
thbe laid on the doorstep of Ingersoll's publica-
tion, those who wanted to muffle the' loud shouts
of the courageous little paper couldn't convince
the public that New York had another sensa-
tional tabloid a little yellower, a little more
streamlined than the Evening Graphic of a by-
Jone day.
Their sniping couldn't convince Mr. Public
because he discovered that PM had an enormous
appeal to the little guy and that what came out
i print under bold black headlines made sense
fo people somehow. Pt started out slowly,
bucked all the adverse ballyhoo, and won its
fight to justify its existence. Today it numbers
thousands'among its readers and it is respected
as one of the most instrumental organs of pro-
teetion against the enemy in the war effort.
tT PM's enemies have picked up a partner
to lie in the same bed with them. Unfor-
tunately, the partner happens to symbolize what
democracy means in practice to the American
people. The partner? A New York City draft
board which is so prejudiced against PM that it
wants to take Ingersoll away from it. It wants
to put him in an Army camp where "he can
brve his country best."
together, the bed-mates have hatched their
plot. Now they are trying to get the American
people to swallow it by beatmig the snare-drum
of fervent patriotism. Cissy Patterson, Col. Mec-
Cbrmick and their parade of well-wishers are
telling the people that this man's Army isn't
too good for any American. They are saying to
the people that Ingersoll isn't better than any-
body else. They are saying he is a draft-dodger
who is trying to pull every string he holds to
avoid induction.
They are not saying that they want to pluck
InrĀ§oll from his swivel-chair and dump him
in an Army camp, hoping he will lose himself
there long enough to knock the heart out of PM.
They are not saying that they really want to
muzzle the press during wartime. But that is
what they are doing, knowing that the people
are suckers for the fife and drum during a war.
We believe that the Selective Service reflects
the democracy America is fighting for. We be-
lieve that every man should be put wherever he
cen do the most good toward winning the war.
Alut we do not believe that the Selective Service
should mock the people it serves by taking ad-
vantage of the unique power it holds and work-
ing under the guise of democracy to grind its
a&I of prejudice.
LIN YU-TANG, in a letter to the editor of PM,
wrote: "Your paper, created by Mr. Inger-
soll, is worth a division of home guards. It simply
does not make sense to me to say that Ralph
Ingersoll as a private shooting a few enemies is
of greater use to his country than Ralph Inger-
$oll as a courageous newspaper editor conducting
vigorous campaigns against or enemies within.
Every single one of the PM's campaigns is worth

WASHINGTON.-Behind the Army-Navy at-
'tempts to blast the Japs out of the Aleutian Is-
lands is more than natural antipathy to having
an enemy on American soil or the fear of an
invasion of Alaska.,
These are important. But, in addition, events
in Egypt may mean that more than ever we shall
have to use these vital stepping stones of the
Aleutian Islands to carry the war to the heart
of Japan.
To get the full significance of the picture it is
necessary to recall that ever since Pearl Harbor
there has been an honest difference of opinion
among U.S. war strategists as to whether we
should concentrate on fighting Japan in the
Pacific or Hitler in Europe.
At one time, shortly after Pearl Harbor, high-
up U.S. Naval advisers worked out an elaborate
war plan, which is no longer a secret, for con-
centrating almost all our naval strength in the
Pacific and making a direct attack on the Jap-
anese islands-at a time when the Japs had their
lines dispersed to Manila, Singapore and the
South Seas.
But the plan meant leaving the Atlantic coast
relatively unguarded, also virtually abandoning
convoys to Britain and Russia. In the end it
was decided that the Russian front was all-im-
portant and must be supplied at all costs, The
wisdom of this decision seems to have been
borne out by subsequent events.
Fointed
GOVERNMENT housing officials could learn a
lot by reading "The Nebbs" comic strip in
their daily paper.
Rudy Nebb recently went to court to stop the
county from building a road through his prop-
erty. The judge ruled that "In the interests of
the public welfare the county is directed to seize
the condemned property and pay the defendant
the appraised value thereof."
There is a man named Heny Ford who also
owns some land he does not want contami-
nated by the government or by workers who
belong to the CIO. He does not even bother
with the courts-he just pulls up stakes which
government surveyors have driven. A little of
this "in the interests of the public welfare"
stuff would be mighty welcome where King
Henry is concerned.
REP. JOHN RANKIN, speaking on the floor of
Congress when he discovered that the Office
of Civilian Defense does
not require its civilian -
blood' banks to segregate
the blood of Negroes and
whites: "If that is tru ,}
they had better pourt
in the gutter and get
their supply from the
Red Cross, or,, better
still, turn that phase of
civilian defense over to the Red Cross."
T HE PEN points today at the well-meaning
but sometimes difficult-to-understand USO,
which at present is busily engaged in flooding
huge shipments of books ipon tle smal, de-
fenseless garrison stationed in the local ROTC
headquarters.
Two days ago the five officers and nine en-
listed men were completely overwhelmed by
the sudden arrival of four crates-approxi-
mately 250 volumes-of books. With only the
14 of them working, they are having a hard
time filing the varied gems of literature, let
alone reading them.
However, they are all anxiously awaiting
the arrival of the next shipment-due in about
two wees-because there is not a single copy
of the Rover Boys series in this one. If they
find "Tom Swift and His Motorcycle," which
I contributed to the Victory Book campaign,

I hope they let me know. My roommate wants
to read it.
-The Managing Editor
easy that PM became alarmed at the laxity of
supervision.
PM sent a reporter to test the watchfulness of
five major concerns in New York City which
were engaged in doing vital defense work and
the reporter did not 'get as much as a "hello"
from the guards who supposedly were on the
alert against trespassers.
PM exposed the Standard Oil Company's tie-
up with the Nazis months before an excited press
howled a chorus of headlines condemning the
company. PM locked horns with Father Cough-
lin and was directly responsible for the govern-
ment's decision to ban "Social Justice" from
circulation because it spread seditious propa-
ganda. PM had something to do with putting
Pelley of the Silver Shirts where he belonged
and with squelching "The Galilean."
,AND we musn't forget either that Ingersoll's
no-advertising paper is doing everything it

;japs Worried
However, those who urge the all-out war in
Asia have persisted, and their argument has
been strengthened by recent developments. One
is the fact that the Japs, obviously scared at the
prospect of a second front in Asia, are fighting
feverishly to clean out the Chinese before China
gets important help, from us. 6Fear of a sec-
ond front in Asia also was why the Japs nipped
part of the Aleutian Islands.
Main development, however, was the defeat at
Tobruk -and the serious Nazi threat to the en-
tire Near East; for if the Near East falls, with
its vital supply route opened by Anerican rail-
road engineers from the Gulf of Persia to the
Caucasus, then it may be absolutely imperative
to open new supply lines to Russia via Alaska
and Siberia.
1 And, even more important, the entire focus of
the war, so far as the United States is con-
cerned, may turn to the Far East; for, if Hitler
secures the oil of Iran, Iraq and Mosul, it may
be the wisest strategy to knock Japan out of the
war first-because the Nazis will have the re-
sources to continue for a long time.
Strike Breakers
Brig.-Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, chief of Selec-
tive Service, is concerned over the apparent
attempt of some local draft boards to use their
powers for labor baiting.
Two current cases in such widely separated
places as Massachusetts and Polorado are symp-
tomatic.
In Massachusetts a large manufacturing com-
pany with important war orders locked out its
employes. The local draft board, whose chair-
man was an official of the company, immediately
ordered some of the highly skilled workers re-
classified for induction.
The Colorado case is almost the same, except
"that the local draft board official is personal
director of the affected concern.
Both cases have been appealed to the State
Selective Service Boards, but the injustices are
still uncorrected. Unless these and similar in-
stances are cleared *up to remove any taint of
unfairness, Hershey is prepared to crack down
on the wide powers now enjoyed by local draft
boards.

THE SUN was shining brightly yesterday and
we students, as is our wont, were gamboling
gaily on the campus green. It was a pleasant
afternoon, not many people on campus, not as
hot as everybody's afraid it's going to be, just
nice and quiet and peaceful.
We, personally, were standing in back of An-
gell Hall, near the Haven Hall wind tunnel, talk-
ing with friends when he appeared. Not the sort
of person that repulsed you immediately, a
pleasant looking guy of about forty, with a large
round face, not soft and not hard, and wearing
a nondescript winter suit. He sidled over, cagey
like. One of the girls in our party screamed
slightly. He spoke.
"Excuse me, I'm a photographer from a De-
troit department store. I wonder if any of you
would like to pose for a picture." A pause, as
each of the girls looked at the other, half eager,
half afraid, three-quarters caught by the leth-
argy of the afternoon. "Oh,,it's perfectly all
right, I've spoken to Dean Smith about it. Here,
won't you (motioning to one of the girls) come
around in front?" He pushed her around to the
front steps with his will power, and she went,
looking back wistfully and appealingly. We
stayed put, confident that if she wasn't back in
ten minutes, by God the rotter would hear from
us, yessirree.
FIVE MINUTES LATE19 he returned. "And
wouldn't you all like to be in it too?" Two
seconds later *e were in front of Angell Hall.
So there we were, two pretty girls, a handsome
boy, and your columnist, whose beauty lies in
the graceful curves of his cerebrum. The man
seemed transformed into a real human dynamo.
"All right, you two girls right over here, and you'
(here we stepped forward eagerly) riot you, a
little lower on the steps, please." And a very
pretty picture it made too, with two pretty girls
and a handsome boyin front of the camera, and
*us in the background, wistfully smiling encour-
agement and bantering in spite of a broken
heart.
HE SHOT about three pictures in that pose,
very calm, and disturbed only by the gentle
hinting sound of our hair being combed in the
background. I guess his wife, a large women
