"Spy" Stories In
Found to Be False
No. Arrests Made In Florida By
Federal Bureau of In-
Last week the editor had visions
of a front page streamer something
like this: "FIFTH COLUMNISTS
NABBED IN PORY ST. JOE" wnen
he heard storie.C that two men in
the city had been ,taken.into cus-
tody by the United States Federal
Bureau of Investigation on charges
of "fifth column" activities and be-
ing Nazi spies. But after check-
.ing from all possible angles it was
found that there was no basis to
.the wild tales' going the rountdls by
Street gossip' had it that one
man had been arrested and had
.been in. possession of a map of the
entire. Gulf coast with all military
points and manufacturing plants
indicated on it, .and that his hoine
had been raided and a short-wave
ra'dlo transmitting station found.
The, truth of the matter was that
the. gentleman in question had left
the city Tuesday- for Tallahassee
to cast his ballot.,
Tales.of the arrest of a second
'"spy" also proved to be false, so
the editor filled the front page
with interesting but ngn-sensation-
al. stories of the doings of home
: FBI. officials have announced
that no arrests hav been made in

WHAT WOULD WE DEFEND?
The nation is embarking on a defense pro-
gram unprecedented in its peace-time history.
But there is more to national defense than
simply appropriating money for ships and
planes and tanks and soldiers. No matter
how great a nation's resources, an adequate
defense structure cannot be created over-
night. And-wheni a nation has long been ac-
customed to the ways of peace, it is an ex-
tremely difficult thing to' adapt it to the ways,
The defense program involves many ques-
tions, some as yet unanswered.' First and by
far-the most important question is simply
this; What are we going to defend? A mili-
tary establishment sufficient to guard our ter-
ritorial borders 'is one thing-a military es-
tablishment adequate to guard the Philippines,
northern South' America, Greenland, the Brit-
ish We st Indies and other far-flung places,
is obviously .arother. That question cannot be
fully answered until it becomes completely
clear who is going to be .the winner in the
European war. ,.
If the Allies win we will have little to fear,
and we feel that if they can hold out for an-
other 60. days they should win. If Germany
-wins (and it is apparent that our whole pend-
ing defense plan is based upon that grim pos-
sibility) the fate of the great British fleet
will be the thing in which the United States
has the most vital interest. Should that fleet
fall into the hands of the dictators, our post-
tion will be. dangerous indeed, for we do not
possess a two-ocean navy. Ours, say the
experts, is good enough to protect us in either.
the Pacific or the Atlantic, but not in both.
And it would take many years to build a two-
ocean fleet. That explains the widespread
hope that if the Allies lose, the British fleet -
wil be either scuttled or, better yet, sent to'
Canada, where it could work in co-operation
It won't be long now until the Democrats
and the Republicans meet in more or less
solemn conclaves to select their 1940 standarQ
bearers. And in the meantime, a long lineup
of political hopefuls, their hearts beating ner-
vously, are working overtime in an attempt
to convince the voters, the delegates and the
party machine leaders that they are' the logi-
cal choice for the number one position in the
United States. So far as the party platforms
are concerned, they will probably mean little,
-and will say next to nothing at great length. t
Both parties will pledge themselves to stay
out of war, to aid the needy and the farmers,
to cut government costs if, as and when-ani a
so on. It will be the candidates who count, f
not the windy planks. And it should be a red i
hot campaign. t
President Roosevelt calls on the Republican
presidential candidates to make known their b
specific views on national politics, and just r
for that the'Republican candidates call on Mr. d
R. to make public his intentions as to a third a
term. With no answers from either side the s
referee declared that round a draw.-Macon t
SBest simile of the week: Happy as an old c

THE ENEMIES WITHIN THE GATES
Events in Europe have underlined and em-
phasized the urgent need for improving and
expanding our national defenses, and making
sure that the United States, its shores and its
traditional ways of life, are rendered secure
To do this most effectively, our military
experts are of course studying very closely
the methods of the "total war" that has over-
run so many helpless countries abroad-the
modern form of war that, as one observer
has commented, is fought "with the morals
of the cave man and the weapons of an ex-
You need to know the danger that faces
your country before you can guard against it
But there is one further step. The manner
in which Norway, Poland and Belgium have
been brought to their knees wasn't exclusively
based upon military power. Before a blow was
struck, security was undermined from within.
The advice of Goethe-"Divide and command"
-was heeded with telling and destructive ef-
fect. The' "fifth column" of traitors and im-
ported agents did their destructive work be-
fore war even began.
The danger that these tactics will be re-
peated here also faces our own land. It is not
enough to have military preparedness; we
must also establish internal unity, internal
To achieve this aim, certain principles need
to be kept in mind:
We must guard-not in a mood of hysteria,
but through sound common sense--against
the misguided groups and individuals in oui
own country who would sacrifice our prin-
ciples of living for some other way of life.
It is they who, by word or deed, would fill
the role .of "fifth columnists" in America if
the, opportunity were offered.
We must not let the erroneous thinking of
a second group muddle our thoughts on pre-
paredness,. This group does not recognize. the
inseparability of our various freedoms-free-
dom of speech, a government of representa-
tive democracy, and a business system of pri-
vate enterprise-and its failure to appreciate
this important truth. is likely to be actually
as- dangerous as the attitude of the' deliberate
enemies of our way of life.
With these principles in mind, and with the
courageous maintenance of national unity and
individual, patriotism, America cart guard
against the "enemies within the gates." With-
out this stand, America invites disaster!
INSULT TO OUR INTELLIGENCE d
Can the leopard change his spots? When
the metamorphical leopard is the German- c
American Bund, we would say that any ef- t
fort to alter effectively its epidermic top- i
ography must be doomed inevitably to fail-
ure. That is why we are still inclined to look t
upon Bund-meetings, no matter what guise
they now may assume, with infinite distrust. r
We have in mind the opening, Monday, for d
the 1940 season, of Camp Siegfried, operated
by a Bund affiliate. A year ago, when mem- o
bers gathered at this Yaphank, N. Y., organi- s
nation headquarters, they sported uniforms i,
strikingly similar to those worn by blitzkreig- o
ing Nazis now pursuing their murdering, pil-
.aging and destroying way through the Neth-
erlands, Belgium and northern France. Then,
:hese Bundsters conducted their ceremonies
against a background of waving swastika
flags and to the accompaniment of numerous
and vociferous "heils." This year the unlt
orms, the "heils" and the swastikas are miss-
ifg. But, unless we miss our guess, the :
:reasonous urge that prompted their use be-
fore, is with Bund members just the same. d
With democracy reeling from totalitarian
)lows, it is indeed a sad commentary on ouT
national intelligence that persons who have fi
demonstrated so effectively in the past, their m
abhorrence of American institutions, should fc
still be permitted to continue their activities at
