Military men of letters some Day when the War is Over it should be the fascinating task of Stone scholar to examine the communiques speeches and general pronouncements of our military leaders for the ii rat which these statements can throw on the men their characters and their abilities. Until t hut time is at hand it is enough to make the Broad Bose cation hat our top generals and admirals express themselves remarkably Well and with Groat variety. Their vocabulary when they address themselves to civilian audiences is free from military aridity. And they employ it with a directness clarity and very often imagination that Many professional writers might and probably do envy. General Mac Arthurs utterances have the Oriental splendor and rolling periods of the old testament due logically enough according to reports to his assiduous Bible Reading. Admirals King and Nimitz and general Marshall can condense important news into a Model of straightforward reporting or and especially in Marshall Scase can infuse this almost Blunt Economy of expression with boiling hot sincerity in Public speeches. Admiral Halsey contributed a satirical and gracefully contemptuous comment on the japs inflated Victory claims when he informed Admiral Nimitz that he had salvaged his entire Jap destroyed Fleet and was withdrawing in the direction of the enemy. But Best of All perhaps is general Eisenhower s description of War which he gave to a v siting congressman in France. Quot War a said the general a is like pushing a heavily loaded Wagon up a Steep Hill in a fog and never knowing when you Are going to reach the top. So you have to push like hell All the in All military literature it would be hard to find a More illuminating simile. Needless to say the general was not speaking of his strategy or his armies tactics neither of which is the least bit foggy but of the unremitting Effort needed right up to the hour and minute of the enemy a final defeat. In these memorable sentences general Eisenhower has impressed us All with the dangers of complacency and has done it to our Way of thinking far better than a Hundred speeches on the subject. Those sentences Are something to Cut out and paste up in Home office or i factory. Or better they Are Worth learning and thinking about. They Hight to keep us pushing.

Not in its ability to Stop a Bullet. The same u to nod weight of pure steel would make a far better shield if that a what it s wanted for. The War production Board gave that warning Over a year ago. A Bible or any other Book with or without a thin Metal cover will Stop Only near spent bullets or Shell fragments. Now. According to the Federal Trade commission tests show that the books would make the wounds still More deadly by causing spreading at the nose of the Bullet. Pm Chafer.

But if the smart ones who stirred up the whole demand re ally believe what is Between those covers some of them May by now be living in some discomfort with their conscience.

It a Only when i had the Crisp new Check Book safely in my pocket that i really Felt that everything was the Way i wanted it to be. Somehow id been afraid that Boggio might change his mind at the last minute and Stop payment. Now it was too late. One of the strangest things about the human mind is its remarkable adaptability to new circumstances. This minute was one of the highlights of my existence and i should have been half crazy with Joy. And Here i was walking calmly Down the Street and making plans for the future. After awhile i realized i was famished so i went into a drugstore. I sat Down at the counter ordered a Ham Sandwich and a cup of Coffee and then laughed at myself. Id just been thinking about the adaptability of the a mail mind and yet id unconsciously followed the same impulse of leaner Days. With a Check Book and two Hundred Bucks in Cash in my pocket i should have gone to the Best joint in town to celebrate and Here i was in a drugstore swarming with Twenty five Dollar a week Sale clerks the boy shoved the Sandwich at me. A something to drink a he inquired. A Coffee a i said. No wonder we were on opposite sides of the counter. I always order my Coffee together with my lunch and invariably the soda jerks ask me if ill have Alexander a Wilson Quot Knox a after picture gift to film Cutter har-1 Ara Mclean was a Gold medallion beaning the inscription a to Bobbie who Cut a president and got away with something to drink. Today i let it go. I was in too Mellow a Frame of mind to make cracks. In fact i looked at the fellow with a sort of genial tolerance. There was Only a narrow counter Between us but it separated eighteen Bucks a week from two Hundred and fifty. And we were both about the same age and i bet i did no to Start out with any More advantages than he had. A but for the Grace of god ,. A i murmured to myself. A anything wrong with the Sandwich a he asked. Quot no buddy a i said. A a it a at. Dinner that evening mrs. Watkins sprung the news on my fellow boarders. A emr. Kaba tick is leaving us tomorrow a she said. A and in a sure Well All be sorry to see him i bet they a be sorry. Salem son would be prostrate with grief. They All stopped eating for a moment and looked at me. You a have thought i was moving out of the White House instead of that Lousy two by four excuse for a room. Gransie was the first to break the silence. A Well Leo a he said. A i Hope it la be a move for the a yes a i said. A in a by the Blank look on my face they Tell whether i was moving of my own free will or whether mrs. Watkins was so tired of my being constantly in arrears that shed politely shown me the door. You Coulee see they were All dying to ask me questions but did no to know How to begin. Ruskin nervously cleared his Throat. A a new Job maybe a this was lots of fun. I was being Coy on purpose and the Way i had to be coaxed to give out information you a have thought that each w Ord was a Pearl dropping from my lips. The least inquisitive of the Bunch was Mcneil. Head just grunted and continued eating. But i could Sci that Salemson was dying. Finally she was unable to restrain herself any longer. A Are you remaining in the City a she asked. That was just like her. She was too genteel to come out with the direct question a where Are you moving to a and had to use a circumlocution. I thought id make her sit up and take notice. A a you la probably find me at the Columbus towers a i said casually. If id suddenly started taking off my clothes and paraded around the table in the nude Salem Sony a jaw have dropped lower. A Why done to you make it the Waldorf a she asked. They now began taking me seriously. Maybe it was the tone of my voice or perhaps my suppressed excitement was beginning to creep out All Over. The suspense was becoming unbearable for All of them. A an inheritance maybe a queried Ruskin. There was a Long pause and then i let them have it. A ten years ago a i began dramatically a i helped an old lady across the Street. Her hands were shaking and she was poorly dressed but i treated her As if she were my own Mother. Although she asked me my name i never gave it another thought. Last week she died. After they a Given her a paupers burial they ripped open her mattress. And what do you think they found a you could have heard a pin drop. A what a breathed Ruskin. A bedbugs a i said. Was i getting Hammy but they All went into convulsions with the exception of Salemson who shuddered. A i done to think that a funny a she said. At any rate the general curiosity was dampened for the time being and i was Able to continue eating without going into any embarrassing explanations. If a fellow knows How to mingle truth with fiction and has people guessing All the time he can always keep the situation Well in hand.
