decided to give it uip and go to

day night and we got to taJking
about the time when his 'manu-

banks are about lending money.

AN INSULT TO AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE
Why any body of men as powerful as the
United States Senate will sit and listen and-put
up with.such goings-on as the antips of Senator
(Charlie the wooden-head) McCarthy, this wri-
ter simply cannot understand. The Senator
has obviously become confused himself just as
he has everybody in the nation confused. Mc-
Carthy doesn't seem to realize that he has been
elected to represent his people from Wisconsin
but instead he has spent all'his time trying to
make a name for himself--a name which is

We are getting a little off base here, since
we try to keep all our remarks pertaining to lo-

Soviet Russia would be'most happy to see come
about. The Senator is playing right into the
hands of the Soviet. All of which makes us

The Senator is now wanitng to know if
Private Schine wore tailor-made uniforms or not
and whether or not the famous Private paid
someone else to take his turn at KP. These are
two age-old practices in the services. As soon
as enlisted man gets the required funds he gets
a tailor-made uniform and more than one GI has
come out of the army with plenty of money
from pulling KP forhis buddies. But McCarthy
drags this everyday practice into the national
limelight and tries to rake some hardworking
man trying to tend to his job, over the coals
about it. Maybe McCarthy is just suffering
from his "war wounds".
We feel, that if left alone, the Privileged
Private will get just what is coming to him from
his army buddies. They have a way of meting

Thought For The Week
