Fr. Walsh Warns JA Gs
Against False Logic

"Too often we hear, 'We have won
every other war, so consequently we
will win this one' in the public prints
and in general conversation," Father
Edmund A. Walsh, S.J., Regent of
the School of Foreign Service of
Georgetown University stated to the
classes of the Judge Advocate Gen-
eral's School yesterday in a lecture
on "Geo-politics" as a feature of
graduation week of the 11th Class.
"That is a false assumption
whichashould be destroyed. It is
false in logic and in fact. An an-
alysis of history shows that in all
our wars except the Civil War we
have had the aid of a powerful
ally or have faced a crumbling
military adversary. In the Revo-
lution, France, then the leader of
Europe, was on our side; in the
War of 1812, France again aided
us in the sense that Napoleon was
England's main foe and we were a
side issue.
"In 1846 and 1898 we were merely
on excursions against two fading
military powers. In 1917 we joined
a great coalition at a time when our
tremendous force swayed the decis-
ive final phases."
No Beachheads Now
"In the last war," the speaker said,
"we landed on friendly shores amid=
friendly people. Now we have no
"We have to fight for the right to
fight as well as a place to fight,"
Father Walsh summarized.
Civilization is now passing
through a great crisis similar to
the period of the breaking up of
the Roman juridical and military
empire. Just as the American Rev-
olution signalized the end of the
monarchical spirit, so the present
era will be the end of the system
of national states. Nationalism in
the conquered Central European
states has been destroyed by the
Nazis. They are merely principal-
ities ruled by gauleiters from Ber-
lin, Father Walsh asserted.
"What the outcome of this up-
heaval will be, we will not live to
see," the lecturer said. "All we know
is that the change in American Dem-
ocracy will be vitally affected by the
ideas, philosophy, and social forces
given impetus by the war. The men
returning will have different values
than they had when they left. It is
easy to go down, but difficult for
men to rise to higher levels of civili-
Prussian Teaching Responsible
The Nazi philosophy of German
supermen is not the product of Hit-
lerism, according to Father Walsh.

It is the result of over 100 years of
Prussian teaching. Fichte, Hegel,
Nietzsche, and others taught inter-
national immorality and ordained
German supremacy. Only a German
has a right to be patriotic and love
his country, similar qualities in other
nations are mere chauvinism.
The German General Staff re-
garded the peace of 1918 as only a
truce in their campaign for world
conquest. It was General Haus-
hofer who visited Hitler in con-
finement in 1924, and "Mein
Kampf" reiterates the political
ideas of the Prussians.
It was also General Haushofer as
military attache at Tokyo who for
20 years paved the way for the alli-
ance between Germany a nd Japan.
Hitler a Doublecrosser
However, when the General Staff
adopted Hitler they made a mistake.
He doublecrossed the doublecrossers
after they had persuaded the mil-
lionaire Fritz Thyssen to pay Hitler
whom they were to use as a front
"Democracy and Christianity
stand together in the struggle
against totalitarianism," Father
Walsh said. "The enemy has de-
personalized the human race.
Christianity, on the other hand,
first elevated human personality
to the rank it holds in Democracy.
Democracy is not a political, but a
religious concept. Respect for the
individual and his rights, protect-
ed by Democracy, comes from the
The concept of the State followed
by Nazi leaders is that it must grow,
have living space. If it stands still
geographically, it is weakened. The
theory of geo-politics has been ap-
propriated as a pivot for the "pre-
ordained world revolution" which
will put Germany over all nations,
if successful, the speaker declared.

Selective Service Boards Will
Not Call Fathers Before Fall
WASHINGTON, ,July 15.- (/P)-- Fathers living with and supporting
children born before last September 15 got today their first official and
positive assurance that there will be no need to issue a general draft call for
them before October at the very earliest.
Classes 1-A and 1-A-O (men who can be used for non-combatant mili-
tary service) already contain enough men who will actually get into uniform
to fill draft calls for July, August -
and September, Maj. Emett Solomon ---_
of the Selective Service Manpower
Division told reporters.
That will be true, he said, although
some of the 1,566,000 men in these
classes will be reclassified on appeal
and many more will be rejected by
physicians and a psychiatrists, who
are currently turning back 40 per- EN I
cent of those examined.
Set Oct. 1 As Date
Solomon declined to comment dir-
ectly on the induction of fathers of
children conceived before Pearl Har-
bor or predict when it, would begin,
but data he presented indicated that,
generally speaking the drafting of
their class might be delayed well ntor
past Oct. 1.
Approximately 50,000 of the 90,000
youths newly turned 18 each month are
can be counted upon for induction,
he said, adding 150,000 to the pool rOWa 4/
of men who can be taken through
4-F's Subject to Call at
Furthermore, this number will be
swelled by "recoveries" from the
2,976,000 men who were in class 4-FrP t
on July 1 because of disqualification
for physical, mental, educational or
moral reasons. A ]
On the darker side of the picture, ald
Solomon pointed out that of the to-
tal of 22,184,000 men aged 18 through
37, more . than half already have FRATERNITY JEWELERS
either been taken into military serv- AT MICHIGAN
ice or rejected and placed in 4-F.
War Manpower Commission offi- 1209 S. University
cials said there are now 9,300,000
men and women in uniform and this RuTH ANN OAKES, Mgr.
number will grow to 10,800,000 by
Jan. 1 and to 11,300,000 by next July
