A DIFFERENT "BONUS"
A committee of educators appointed by the President has
prepared for action by Congress a plan to provide a billion
dollars worth of education after the war for the men and
women who served in the armed forces.
In brief, the program calls for the government to offer
to any man or woman who served six months or more the tuition
and living costs for one year's attendance at a college or
other educational institution. The committee estimated that
in the neighborhood of a million persons would take advantage
:f the proposed offer.
In sending the report of the committee to Congress, Presi-
dent Roosevelt declared: "We must replenish our supply of
persons qualified to discharge the heavy responsibilities of
the postwar world. We have taught our youth how to wage war;
we must also teach them how to live useful and happy lives
in freedom, justice and decency."
this "bonus" of free advanced education is entirely differ-
ent from the great majority of ideas which have been proposed
as benefits for the soldier returning from war.
A good many of the suggestions previously advanced have been
of the "40 acres and a mule" variety, and have smacked of
"cash on the barrelhead" politics. Most of them involve little
more than giving the discharged soldier various sums of money,
which you can be sure will be quickly spent, and lost, in most
Free educations would not only aid the ex-service men and
women but also would be of untold value to the nation and to
the world as a whole.
A nation is enriched much
more by a man who has learned
something of history and
economics and science than it
is by an uneducated man who
has been given a thousand
dollars to spend. The man
with the thousand dollars can
do little for his country ex-
cept to spend that money. But

his value to his fellow man
What a man can learn in one
year's schooling will not make

Having received an education,
a man knows something about
what makes a nation function,
what makes it poor and what

CAN YOU PASS THE REQUIRED TEST?
Search your heart and see if you are the possessor
of that love which will survive the hatred which this
war engenders. Here is the test of such a love in
the command of Jesus: "Love your enemies, bless
them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and
persecute you; that ye may be the children of your
Father which is in heaven. The kind of a world we
will have to live in after this war is over will de-
pend upon whether or not we have passed this required
test. If, during this struggle, we permit our hearts
to become steeped in hatred for our enemies, we.
shall be sowing the fertile seed of another and more
horrible conflict. Hatred for our enemies will in-
variably invoke in them a greater hatred for us.
Such mutual haired will always break out in open
conflict though it may smoulder for years under a
There are many who hold the opinion that hatred of
ones enemies is an indispensable requisite of a good
soldier. This is a false and a dangerous concept;
for, if we love only those that love us, what do we
more than our enemies? Are we really any better
than they, if we do the same? If we cherish a like
hatred in our hearts, we have no right to claim the
approval and help of God for ourselves in our war-
ring against them. The best soldier is the one who
has learned to make distinction between his enemy
and the evil which he represents and perpetrates.
The evil we are commanded to hate, because God Him-
self hates it and sets himself against it. Paul had
the correct concept when he said, "We wrestle not
against flesh and blood, but against principalities
and powers, against the rulers of darkness of this
The good soldier does not fight to kill individ-
uals because of a personal hatred for or grudge
against them, but to put down these greater evil
forces which threaten to enslave the whole human

NOW AND FOREVER
News from Southern Europe hints
at Turkey's physical entry into
the war on the side of the Allies.
Meanwhile German propagandists
are feverishly calling on their
most flattering adjectives in and
effort to forestall this calamity.1
Constantinople, of minarets and
and mosques, has become "that
delightful city of delights on
the lovely Bosphorus'--and 'resi-
dent in Turco Teuton amity is a
panacea for the war-weary world!'
Not at all beguiled by the en-
dearing young charms of Berlin's
blandishers, the wily Turks con-
tinue to talk Turkey with the
visiting Allied statesmen.
Ingenious Red commanders are
finding new uses for their Cos-
sack troops now they've got
them riding herd on the thor-
oughly cowed Germans milling
about madly in the Dnieper Val-I
ley. It's the greatest roundup
in the history of war, with the
Nazis doing all the beefing.
Flore than half a million full-
grown Nazis, shorn of their
horns, are stampeding in terror
as the very earth beneath their
feet is shaken by the awfulness
of oblivion assuring bombs. With-
in the next few weeks all the RH,
(Running Hitlerites) strays should
be safely behind Russian corrals.
The Japanese military rabble
are heavily reinforcing their
much-bombed base of Rabaul. Nine-
teen ships are steaming towards
Rabaul from distant Truk, evi-
dently to replace tonnage losses
of 50,000 inflicted two weeks ago
by MacArthur's bombers. That
Japanese fortunes are not bound
up with the luck of the Irish
was sharply proven when Libera-
tors recently registered bomb
hits on two of the Rabaul bound
ships near Kaveing, New Ireland.
Between Rabaul and Truk lies 800
miles of open Pacific and the
further aerial hazard of the
Liberators waiting to blast that
Truking line right out of the
water. Even Lloyd's of London
,would hesitate to underwrite
that sort of risk.
Gelsenkirchen came in for -its
share of attention last Friday
when an armada of American heavy
bombers let go with their full
bomb complement on the important
synthetic oil production center
in the Ruhr Valley.. Although the
target was synthetic--the damage
sustained was real and Nazi oil
stocks rose to a new high. Most
of Gelsenkirchen's oil output
goes into the wabbly planes of
the Luftwaffe--the rest is used
by Goebbels to lubricate the worn
out lies in his speeches. The
raid itself was virtually a bom-
ber's paradise with losses in-
curred amounting to one and a
half percent. A reasonable rate
considering that it almost wiped
out the principal.

THE TYNIJALL, TARGET
Says He Wishes He Had Gone
Into Action With
The practical importance of
complete pre-combat training in
aerial gunnery was emphasized to-
day by Lt. Earl W. Quillman, vet-
eran of 33 bombing missions over
ermany and Occupied France.
SThe first time Lt. Quillman,
now temporarily assigned to the
Army Air Forces Redistribution
Station at Miami Beach, shot an
aerial gun was at enemy aircraft,
and he certainly wishes he had
had the advantage of training
such as that offered at Tyndall
"I had no formal training in
gunnery," the 28-year-old Flying
Fortress navigator from Erie,
Pa., said. "When I came into the
service, time was so short that
we were trained only in our par-
ticular field in my case,
Now, of course, gunnery is a
requisite part of the training
'f all crew members, because the
experience of men like Lt. Quill-
man has shown that any crew mem-
ber may be called upon to man the
"A navigator, especially in
the European theatre," the young
officer explained, "spends al-
most all his time in the air at
the guns -- the area is so well
charted that most of it can be
navigated before the take-off.
"Up there in the nose of the
Fort," he said, "I had a flexible
gun assigned to me, and my job
was really that of navigator-gun-
ner, with emphasis on the gunner.
I could have used some of that
training I didn't get."
Lt. Quillman recalled that he
had been on 15 missions before he
learned how to intrepret tracer
S"What I did know about guns,"
he said, "I picked up from gun-
ner sergeants while I was sta-
tioned in England. Those ser-
geants -- graduates of Tyndall
and other gunnery schools -- know
everything about aerial guns, and
believe me, they can' t know too
They taught him to take his gun
apart -- the best way to learn
about it short of an actual
course of instruction -- and they
impressed upon him the importance
of cleaning it after every raid.
"Many times I had to strip the
gun in the air," Lt. Quillman
said, "and because I had care-
fully learned the possible stop-
pages and malfunctions,. I was
able to make minor repairs and
get it back in action without
losing too much time."
Before each mission, a gunner
must sign an affidavit that he
has carefully checked his gun,
set the headspace, etc. "And
brother," Lt. Quillman said,
"You're just out of luck if you
haven't done everything that af-
fidavit says you did."
Despite the informality of his
gunnery training, Lt. Quillman,
did more than all right in the
European theatre. He is offici-
ally credited with one Focke-Wulf
190, and he has been awarded the
Air Medal with three Oak Leaf
Clusters and the Distinguished
Flying Cross -- the latter for
courageous action in warding off

TO ALL PERSONNEL OF THE AR17V AIR FORCES:
The commanding generals of our fighting forces overseas have expressed
to me their deep appreciation for the excellent support that all of you have
so eagerly and faithfully given them, both in manpower and material. Every
combat crew man who has taken part in the recent punishing blows against the
enemy blows that have cut the German fighter plane production in half feels
that the successes of our fighting forces abroad would be impossible without
the steady flow of highly trained crews, replacement aircraft, and superior
equipment which the Training and Service Commands have labored so faithfully to
The constant evidence of this all-out backing by the Army Air F6rces
establishments at home is having a tremendous effect on their morale, and will
insure their continued enthusiasm for the job they have to do. A progressively
increasing supply of highly trained crews, with the finest equipment and planes
we can provide, must be our reply to their praise in order to hasten the ulti-
mate victory over the enemy.
It gives me great pleasure to pass on to you-their message. The Army
Air Forces overseas are making a magnificent combat record, and we over here
will back them up with everything we have. I am proud of them, and I am proud

The Russian Army was about

Terrain and weather slowed

The Soviets yesterday reach-

have applied the torch to the

of 105,000 being attacked from
two sidesby Russian amphibious
forces which were shuttled
across the narrow Kerch Straits
from the Caucasus.
Great quantities of German
military equipment was falling
to the advancing Reds.
The IRussians yesterday were
only 10 miles-northeast of
their immediate goal, the
western Ukranian rail center
of Zhitomir. Capture of that
city would mean that the re-

in the area would be in the
hands of the Russians.

YANK WRITER WAS
TO ENTER LAE
T/Sgt. Richardson Suffered
Eye Wound in Covering
New York.-First American en-
listed soldier to enter Lae in New
Guinea was T/Sgt. Dave Richardson,
a correspondent for Yank, the offic-
ial servicemen's weekly.
Sgt. Richardson, a former reporter
for the Indianapolis Star and New
/York Herald-Tribune, has been cov-
ering the South Pacific war for 14
months. He was the only photograph-
er to take part in the Battle of San-
ananda, and is the only enlisted cor-
respondent in New Guinea. His rec-
ord has been one of continuous front-
line reporting in Australia, New Gui-
nea ,and Woodlark Island.
In a recent assignment for Yank,
Richardson went to the PT boat base
of Lt. Comdr. John D. Bulkeley, hero
of the fast PT's at Bataan. He spent
several days there, going on mis-
sions, taking pictures and gathering
material for Yank stories. Again he
rang up a "first" by being the first
correspondent to accompany Comdr.
Bulkeley into action since the PT
commander came out of the Philip-
"Then," says Sgt. Richardson, "I

can'troops on the Lae invasion. Our
landing was made Sept. 4, and in
the first three days I took 50 pic-
tures. We underwent severe bomb-
ings those three days and I caught
a piece of shrapnel in my right eye
from a big baby that landed only
six feet from my foxhole. For the
next five days I went around with a
white patch over the eye. In the
bombing, my typewriter broke. There
was only one other typewriter in the
whole invasion. I used it in the few
minutes each day when someone else
With his eye healed enough to re-
move the patch, Richardson caught

Lae Sept. 16, and the Yank corres-
pondent was the first American en-

So says Myron E. Clark. He' s
the man in charge of Tyndall
Field's six barbershops employing
20 tonsorial artists.
His 20 barbers cut about 3,000
heads of GI hair per week. The
average "take" for the entire
post is about $1,400 weekly, and
the various shops use eight gal-
lons of one brand of shampoo
Every barber at Tyndall Field
has at least two years' exper-
ience, and the average is 17
years. Several of the scissors-
wielders have been cutting hair
for 25 years. Their pay ranges
from $40 to $100 weekly.
Several of the veterans can
turn out a neat job in less than
three minutes flat, and be ready
to sit the next customer in the
chair. Some of the men are slow-
er-a couple of them take 12 min-
utes to clip GI wool--but the
post average is 10 haircuts per
man per hour.
GI's don't buy many shaves, and
shampoos and massages are strict-
ly "after-payday treats." Many
student gunners, though, request
"the works" after graduation. But

STUDY OF CLOTHING
SIZES IS MADE BY
Your Feet Grow Bigger as
And Why Not!
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 20.-Mass tabu-
lation of the clothing items with
which American soldiers are fitted
when they enter the Army has en-
abled the Army Service Forces to
gear clothing procurement to specific
levies of manpower, according to fig-
ures at the Quartermaster Branch,
Fourth Service Command.
As each soldier is fitted, the size
of each item is recorded and for-
warded to the Office of the Quarter-
master General. The figures are tab-
ulated and analyzed to determine the
percentages of each clothing size re-
quired for future issue at the var-
ious reception centers, as well as for
an overall picture of the nation as a
Having determined what sizes are
in demand and where, the Army is
enabled to make purchases and dis-
tribute them accordingly, and the
tabulation has brought to light cer-
tain established facts. For example,
the lowering of the age limit to 38,
years diminished the demand for
stout sizes, while the inclusion of the
18-19 year olds increased the de-
mand for small and medium sizes.
Individual records show that as
training progresses ,the size of the
soldier's waist is reduced, his should-
ers expand and his feet grow larger.
Latest figures show that 51 per
cent of the selectees can be fitted
in sizes classified as "regular", while
18 per cent require "shorts" and 27
per cent take "longs" with only four
per cent "extra longs."
There are 42 sizes of blouses, 25
sizes of overcoats, 46 sizes of trous-
ers and 240 sizes of shoes to insure
that the soldiers are well fitted, and
in addition, clothing is altered when
some minor change is required.
"HOT" MUSICIANS PROVE
GOOD FIRE FIGHTERS
When a i1 ton truck belonging
to the Quartermaster caught on
fire last Wednesday at the corner
of Louisiana and Mississippi
Avenues, the first men to reach
the scene were members of the
308th AAF Band.
Armed with two fire extinguish-
ers taken from the barracks and
hurried to the fire a half a'
block away, they had the fire
completely out by the time local
fire fighting apparatus arrived
on the scene.
You're in error, Sergeant, and
you Private, are a dirty liar.

Who's The Guy That Leo Doesn't Like?
By SGT. FRANK DE BLOIS
CNS Sports Correspondent
Back of Ham Healy's saloon on New Lots Avenue, there's a
tree grows in Brooklyn and if you just sit under it long
enough why sooner or later a fellow is almost certain to
come up to you and say:
'Who"s the guy that Lippy Leo doesn't like?'
He will be referring, no doubt, to the celebrated remark
made by Leo Durocher, the big bell cow of the Brooklyn Dodgers,
on the happy occasion of his reinstatement as manager of the
Bums for the coming campaign. On that great day the Lip
said that despite some ugly rumors he had heard he really
loves every last Bun on the team "with the exception of one
Well, who IS the guy that Lippy Leo doesn' t like?
This, of course, is the burning question of the hour all
along Montague street. It is also being asked between sips
of potheen on New Utrecht Avenue, on the Parkway, up ahd
down Myrtle Street and in the public baths at Prospect Park.
You can even smell it mingled with the herring scent in the
evening breezes that waft up from Gawanus and hear it in the
thunder of the waves that beat on Brighton's noble shores.
It's on every lip in Brownsville and every ear in Greenpoint
is flapping for the answer all Canarsie wants to know.
WHO'S the guy that Lippy Leo doesn' t like?
Speculation runs high on this question among the clan of
faithful that gathers every afternoon around the old hot
stove in front of Left Field Louie's chestnut stand at the
corner of Flatbush and DeKalb. There every effort is made
to get to the nub of the problem, as the saying goes.
'All I gotta say is,' says Dan Parker's friend Jeremiah
Francis Looney, the three button elevator man with hash marks
under each of his eyes, 'is that it better not be Dixie. If
they let Dixie go, it'll be the rawrest deal they ever done
Jeremiah speaketh of Dixie Walker, first in the hearts of
all Flatbush, who has been mentioned most prominently as the
man that Lippy Leo doesn't like. It is reported that bad
cess developed between Dixie and his manager during the sea-
Bad cess, for that matter, developed between the Lip and
quite a number of his athletes during the season. One day
Bobo Newsom squawked when Durocher dressed him down while
Bobo was dressing up to go out. The Lip then suspended Bobo
and the whole team went on strike. Branch Rickey, the Number
One man on the Dodgers, fired Bobo and ended the strike, send-
ing Arky Vaughan, leader of the insurrection, back to third
base where he performed with alacrity and dispatch for the
remainder of the season.
Rumor hath it that the Lip doesn't like Vaughan, for stick-
ing up for Bobo; that he doesn't like Billy Herman, because
Billy wants his job; and that he doesn't like Luls Olmo, the
Puerto Rican outfielder, because Luis doesn't bring him pretty
The boys at Left Field Louie's .chestnut corner can't figure
out and Left Field Louie himself is as befuddled as the best
of them. As a matter of fact, he has put his lament into
verse. To wit:
Is it Hoiman, Vern, or Erlmo, boys?
Coit Davis, Bordygary?
Is it Mickey Owen's brother,
Koiby Higbe's mother?
Or is it Typhoid Mary?
Is it Joe, the popcorn salesman, boys?
Or the goober vendor, Mike?
Is it Babe the batboy,
Pratt the fratboy?
Hey, WHICH Bum don't Lippy Like?
