Omr Country Right or Wrong

"CIVILIZATION," A WORLD MENACE
General Marshall's final report on the war,
his peace proposals for- military preparedness
and his grim warning of "prepare or perish,"
sh'ul'd be "required' reading for every Ameri-,
can. It calls attention to the development of
60()-rile-an-hour planes, .50,000-pound bombs,
and finally the ultimate in destructive power,
the atom.bomb.. If there, should be another
war, the enemy will attack with "supersonic"
speed. Never again will distance protect this.
country from attack. Never 'again will this:
country have years to construct defenses af-
ter war starts. Our fate may be decided in,
days, hours-even minutes.
The cynics and the philosophers who think
that the world will always be afflicted with
war because war is part of normal human be-
havior, should study Marshall's report. If


the horror it depicts is normal, then why
bother with the claptrap of schools, univer-
sities, churches, "higher education" and all
the paraphernalia of what we are pleased to
call civilization? Why drape distinguished
personages of superior mentality in caps and
gowns? Why send them out with little gold
keys and Greek letter badges hanging from
their watch chains advertising their intellec-
tual capacities to advise and teach the rest
of us? Why send them to international con-
ferenses where they join in the gibberish of
"diplomacy," while the rest of us stand around
awed by portentous stage settings? Why go
through all this rigmarole if war and total de-
struction are inevitable at the end of the play?
Something is wrong somehwere. Normal
people are kindly. They don't want to fight
and kill. Different languages, different flags,
different habits-these things are superficial.
War comes because the leaders of groups and
the leaders of nations fail to measure up to
the responsibilities imposed upon them. So-
called mad men never commit the world to
war until a condition is established by sup-
posedly sane men that create a following fof.
mad men.
Are we capable of understaiiding the, him-
plications of General Marshall's words; or.
will we allow the per-version of science and
higher education to destroy mankind?

An efficiency expert is a man who knows
less about your business than you do and gets.
paid more for telling you how to run it than
you could possibly make out of it even if you
ran it right instead of the way he told you to.

A Great Financial Bulwark
For Our Own and
Our Country's Future
One of the brightest facts of the
war effort is that many billions of
dollars have been saved and are now
in possession of the people. Eighty-
five million Americans have bought
War Bonds and are hanging on to
them and have seventy-five million
bank accounts, too.
These savings can mean much to
the future welfare of our country
and ourselves. They will permit us
to spend more, of our current in-
come once goods become plentiful
again. The savings themselves can'
be used to tide us over emergencies
and for such things as new homes.
Thus the savings of the war years
and the months immediately ahead
can contribute to demand for goods,
busy factories and jobs later on.
Save now while goods are scarce and
the threat of rising prices continues.
Buy Victory Bonds.
