Word received Monday from
SRepresentative Bob Sikes stated
that Secretary Stimson had ap-
proved a plan to establish a train-
ing school for army pilots some-
where in this vicinity. He said the
facility, to be operated by the air
corps, would cost about $2,000,000
and would require approximately
25,000 asres of land.
War department plans for the

officers and men will be stationed
there for training in advanced

Exact location of the. school has
not been revealed, but it is be-
lieved it will be located this side
of the East Bay bridge on High-
way 98, and as 25,000 acres comes
to around 40 townships, this would
mean the site would take in prac-
tically all of the land between the

LIVING DEATH AS REMEDY?
"In war or a huge defense program like
ours there are two directions which we
might travel," writes W. Randolph Burgess
of New York. "One is to copy the authori-
tarian methods, to become ourselves a so-
cialist state in the sense that the government
would be given absolute control over the life
of the people. It is appalling to discover how
many people are willing to adopt that sort
of solution for the present problems of the
That solution means death-death for lib-
erty, for free enterprise, death for everything
this country stands for. Its advocates are
wily and insidious. While they urge measures
that would destroy our free institutions, they
say that they are urging them in the name
of democracy. But they would like to out-
dictate the dictators.
What proportion of Americans will swal
low that bogus philosophy? History tells us
that free peoples have always outmatched op-
pressed peoples in every field of action. Gov-
ernment may need special powers in critical
times, but it is not necessary that those
special powers be designed to destroy de-
mocracy in the name of preserving it. Such
powers, when granted, should be definitely
limited in time.
Those who would use this world emergency
to socialize our banks, our service industries,
and many of our manufacturing industries,
represent a philosophy of life which menaces
us as directly, and perhaps more directly,
than any possible aggressor beyond our bor-
ders. If we cannot make this country im-
pregnable without throwing, to the winds all
its traditions and principles, what is our de-
fense program for?

gram had gone forward by leaps
Dr. Lamb graciously thanked the
county officials and Parent-Teach-
ers associations and the principals
and physicians for their fine spirit
of co-operatiofi and loyal support.
He had a special gracious word for
the personnel of his staff for their
loyalty and assistance in carrying
on in the face of reverses. He ac-
knowledged with gratitude the
wise counsel and guidance from
the various heads of the state de-
partment. He spoke of the venereal
disease situation in the United
States and how the public could
help eradicate it by co-operating
with health officials in every way
Dr. Lamb spoke on the splendid
work the sanitation officers are
doing in this unit; that they had
installed 264 new privies during
the year and restored 22 others;
made 1,787 general field visits,
and had sent to the state bureau
214 water samples. During the
year 1940 there were 1,253 immuni-
zations for smallpox, 779 for diph-
theria and 1,224 for typhoid; 328
hookworm treatments and 76
pounds of yeast given.

NAZIS MUST WIN THIS YEAR OR LOSE
In military circles, the feeling that Hitler
will. make his supreme effort to defeat Eng-
land is almost unanimous. Time is working
with Britain. Hitler, the officers think, must
win this year or certainly lose.
American correspondents in Germany re-
port a feeling of complete and apparently sin-
cere confidence on the part of reich officials,
some of whom say England will be finished
inside six months. Hitler is supposed to be
perfecting his plans and organization now.
The Germans think England can be broken
by destroying her shipping, by greater air
raids, and finally, by invasion when British
morale has been weakened.
The British are convinced that, with un-
stinted American aid, they can't lose. They
say they have some new weapons which will
prove highly unpleasant surprises for in-
vaders. The Germans still talk about new
weapons, too. So far, however, despite all
such talk, this war hasn't produced anything
but improvements on old weapons.
Britain has just adopted tighter food ra-
tioning. German diet is reported still on the
downgrade. Europe will be a mighty hungry
place when the war ends.
No one need wonder any longer about this
country's neutrality. It doesn't exist. We are
a non-belligerent participant in the war. Our
relationship to England is about like that of
Italy to Germany before Mussolini decided
to go all the way. Recent polls indicate that
the American public is in favor of our role
as we are playing it now.
Germany has added dogs, horses, wolves
and badgers to the national menu, along with
butter made from coal. And the gourmets
will have to develop a "new order" of their
