IS SENATOR PEPPER MORE INTERESTED
IN "WAR PROFITEERS" THAN IN
WINNING THE WAR?
THE HOUSE MILITARY AFFAIRS COMMfIrIE' OF THE
.. CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, SAYS:
In its report after Investigation into the causes for the de-
lay in the construction of Egliri Field, an Army air field at Val-
pariso, Florida, and the airport at Pensacola, Florida, that it
was caused by the successful fight of Senator Pepper to force
the Government to buy the asphalt from the Pan-American Pe-
troleum Corporation, represented by a law firm with which he
once had connection, at a price much higher than the low bid.
This was done, says the committee, by references made by Sen-
ator Pepper in a heated discussion with government officials
concerned in the purchase "to the necessity of State confirma-.
tion" for their promotions.
The Committee concludes its report with the statement in
reference to Senator Pepper, "The Committee deplores most
strongly the fact that any members of Congress would exert
sufficient influence, and that an established government agency
would be so susceptible to such, influence, as to cause unwar-
ranted delay in the completion of a project so essential to the
development of the national defense."

BY THE DEMOCRATS:
Senator Walter F. George, after refusing to recommend the
purchase of asphalt from the Pan-American Petroleum Corpora-
tion or anyoneelse, said: "I deplore political interference in
BY THE REPUBLICANS:
Senator Tobey said in reference to Senator Pepper when
this same asphalt deal tame up for discussion on the floor ot
the Senate: "When a high government official beats the drums
for war which will result in huge profits to certain companies In
the United States, and when that same high government official
uses his high office by active intervention on behalf of a great
oil company in the matter of bids for contracts where the con-
tract should go to the lowest bidder, the danger is that the
people may believe that there is a connection between his ap-
peal for intervention in the war and his motives for interveh-
tion in the oil company deal."
BY THE NATION:
The Washington Daily News had this to say editorially about
this asphalt deal: "Yesterday an article by Thomas L. Stokes,
concerning Senator Pepper and a rather sticky asphalt contract
for an Army Air Corps field in Florida, -precipitated more than
an hour of lively debate in the U. S. Senate. Then all the re-
marks were 'expurged' from the record, because some of the
things said seemed to reflect upon the motives of certain mem-
bers. of that august body.
"We wish here merely to say that this newspaper is not
bound by the protocol of 'senatorial courtesy.' The facts we
have published about the 'asphalt contract will not be 'expunged'
from our columns. Our sentiments were expressed by an
officer from the Army Corps of Engineers who, having looked
into the facts by order of Assistant Secretary of War Patterson,
commented: 'It stinks'."

HITLER PACING COAST OF EUROPE
Adolf Hitler, in effect, today is nervously
pacing the 4000-mile invasion coast of Eu-
rope from the North Cape to the Pyrenees,
straining eyes and ears toward the sea in un-
easy anticipation of vast Allied assaults
against his fortress Europa, and even as we
write this that invasion may have started.
His armies, entrenched behind solid forti-
fications, no doutt are ready for the acid test,
for, as Capt. George Tapper remarked, the
Germans "are good fighters, and don't let
anyone else tell you differently." The harrass-
ing thing is the uncertainty as to where the
invasion will strike. Hitler has 4000 miles of
varying coast to watch, a considerable por-
tion of which your editor has seen, while
General Eisenhower can strike with full force
at any point. In other words, Eisenhower
and not Hitler will choose the battlefield.
Every propaganda device in addition to the
usual espionage probably has been resorted to
by the Nazis to feel out Allied invasion ten-
dencies or "fish" for information, but all in-
dications are that Hitler is a's much in the
dark as ever. His main concern at present' lies
along the European key points closest. to,
The invasion coast naturally is not suitable
along every mile for heavy landing opera-
tions. Actually, from Biarritz to the North
Cape-only 2150 flying miles. But Hitler has
to reckon with every twist and curve in the
coastline, and it goes without saying that
every mile of invasion coast has come under
detailed scrutiny by Hitler and his military
staffs in the hope of putting their finger on
the spot where General Eisenhower may have
decided to stage the major curtain raiser for
the second front.
But wherever it may be, we can be assured
of this fact: That it will mark the beginning
of the end for fortress Europa, and the Nazi

hearts of the bureaucratic nincompoops up
there on the Potomac who draw up the di-
rectives. And apparently we're not the only
one who can't make head,,nor tails out of
them, for Maury Maverick, chairman of the
Smaller War Plants Corporation, recently
denounced them forcefully.
The straw that broke the camel's back-or
Maverick's back, if you prefer-was a memo-
randum someone left on his desk that read as
follows: "Imminent activation of this over-all
policy, following experimentation at the local
level, is contemplated, the entire program

in language similar to that in the memo that
Chairman Maverick found sc',offensive.
Anyone who has come in contact with pres-
ent-day governmental agencies knows just
how Maverick felt. Niiiety per cent of tnis
official drool is just plain 'damphool nonsense.

part of a flock of bird-brained bunglers to

the use of a lot of two-dollar words.

"Mairzy Doats," the screwball song that has
been sweeping the country, dedicated it to

with in the last few years.

Must Fight For
We Must Return to the Constitu-
tional Democracy Under Which
Our Nation Became Great
Judge J. Ollie Edmunds, candi-
date for a seat in the U. S. sen-
ate, says that a fight must be
made on the home f'ont to insure
that the. battle for American ideals
that is, being fought on foreign
fronts ist not. lost here at home.
The essence of the American
dream the dream that lives in
the hearts of American fathers and
mothers is the hope and expec-
tation that their children shall
have a better chance in life than
they, themselves, had, Judge Ed-
"This is the Amerlican dream:
That our children will live. in a
nation of opportunity where 'life,
liberty and the pursuit of happi-
ness' are realities; where courage,
effort and integrity will open the
way to positions of leadership,
honor and distinction; and that
this heritage shall be the birth-
right of every American child,"
Judge Edmunds- expressed a fear
that the American dream and the
American way-are in danger of to-
talitarian eclipse. He believes that
these can be safeguarded only by
a return to the constitutional de-
moo'1acy under which our nation
has become great. He believes that
there is a fight on the home front
that must be made if we are to
keep America American for the
child-,en of this day as. well as for
the children of the days to come.
All the other issues of his cam-
paign are mere details of this
great issue, he says.
MISSING MEN RETURN
A majority-of -missing men turn
up as prisoners of war, the Dis-
abled American Vete:tans reports.
In World War I, out of 78,000 sol-
diers reported missing, all but 46
had been accounted for 8 months
after the war ended.
