Months afro America faced the problem of arming itself and Arni Iok other Peoples resisting aggression it was frankly would mean sacrifice much just a word nodded gravely and a yes Quot now the time is Here when the Pinch is actually being Felt. It Isnit a word any More. It is a reality. And it hurts. A there in t enough of certain materials aluminium Copper steel rubber. The defense plants must come first. Only what remains after their needs Are met is available to plants making non defense items. I hat wont always be True. Facilities for producing More aluminium for instance Are on tin Way. But at present there is a shortage that in ans and will mean real hardship. It Means men out of jobs in the midst of humming activity. It Means dark shops whose customers want g Axis which can to be turned out because the material has gone for guns. It Means salesmen with nothing to sell. It May mean ruin for manufacturers whose plants can to be adapted to defense uses quickly. It Means in snort hardship and privation sacrifice. Further it Means a sacrifice that Falls harder on some than on others. There b Only one thing to do. It is to equalize these burdens just As much As human ingenuity can equalize them. It is to revise the priority system As director Nelson is already trying to do so that those entitled to materials will i e sure of getting them. It is to insist on subcontracting to the extreme limit of practicability. It is to spread defense work and civilian work that does not interfere with it As widely As to. Sible. It is to make sure that sacrifices of jobs and businesses Are not made merely for the Sake of sacrifices but Only when the utmost Diligence and intelligence cannot find a Way to avoid them. American ingenuity american resourcefulness american steadfastness a Are going to be lint on trial this Winter. We must not flinch in the Pinch. Streamlining the army army changes to make the service More flexible and Able to adjust itself to modern conditions in the Field have been Corning fast these Days. For instance National guard officers May now be transferred to any duty anywhere in the army. It was formerly the policy to keep them with their original units. Further army commanders May of t Oill Way now reassign any officer under their command without reference to the War department. That cuts out red tape and it would seem reasonable that a Man judged competent to command an army should be competent to shift his officers about without filtering the change through some bureaucratic Mill in Washington. These with the constant weeding out of officers who have not shown up Well in Maneu vers Are some Assurance that the army is being brought in tune with the military times. Is Romance dead the question s been asked before but we ask it again on Reading that Lily Pons glamorous opera Singer is turning Over a lifetime collection of fan mail As a contribution to the wastepaper drive. With the proceeds about $2, she will buy defense Stamps. Well ifs an emergency and ifs probably More important to have cardboard Cartons for Beans than to preserve notes Reading a i think you re wonderful. Miss Pons in 1925 and a a what a the matter you were Flat on the Bell song last night a in 19112. Still you watch this contribution go into the Macerator without a sigh for All the Pink and perfumed sighs now to be converted by a ruthless mechanical metamorphosis into Cartons for soldiers shirts. That a life we guess. View.

But after All the men really got Back Home. And that was the great thing for them and their families and friends. As some speakers Quot need no introduction Quot so in a sense they needed no formal Welcome. Arkansas just took them Back to itself. To offset any feeling of having been neglected then they now have the proud consciousness that their outfit along with the 206th anti aircraft coast artillery was among the few National guard organizations in the whole new army to be assigned to Active duty in the National defense instead of being kept in training Damps to be made into soldiers. The Dase of the Quot Yankee soldiers Quot from Missouri and Kansas and Nebraska who make up the 35th division is different. They need Assurance that they Are not strangers in our midst but Welcome sojourners. And who knows but Given time to work on them some More we May eventually succeed in converting these Yankees into pretty Good arkansans and southerners have patience.
