A Canol Oil project testimony before the Truman committee about the Canol Oil project in Northern Canada leaves the Layman somewhat confused about the general merits of the venture. Petroleum administrator Ickes disapproves it. Considers it inexcusable and recommends that although already we have spent some $100,000,000 on it we should now decline to allocate the $33,000,0000 required to Complete it. Under Secretary of War Robert Patterson defends it As a bold undertaking which has uncovered More than fifty million barrels of Oil that May prove a key Factor in the size of the coming Aerial assault on Japan. It is recalled that a group of Peregrina Ting congressmen returned recently from the War zone much disturbed because this country is providing More than its share of Oil products thus depleting our exhaustible Petroleum reserves and threatening to place us at a disadvantage in the hereafter. Probably we laymen can to Settle the question whether the Canol project was Well advised or even whether being three fourths completed it should be written off the books. But we can philosophize about two Side issues which really Are is the exceeding and to our mind unforgivable complexity and confusion of the Washington setup which permitted the army to Institute a $133,000,000 project in Flat Defiance of another Agency that was charged by presidential order with control Over our Petroleum production and use. And there is the attitude expressed by or. Patterson in Belitt Lement of $134,000,000 As a Mere nothing less than one Day s Cost of the War. We Are forced to think in terms of billions of dollars in terms so Gross that they have ceased to have any meaning for us. The expenditure of $134,000,000 used to be something Worth noting. Now it is not. But it should be. We can to help spending Many billions. But we can help spending thousands of unimportant Little sums of a few millions Here a few millions there which add up to wasted other billions just because we re going in National debt up to our ears is no reason for getting slap Happy and going in Over our ears. Special delivery via North Africa the War this week by Louis v. Klemke i listed preen War analyst a Bey on wrong horse gloating would be out of order. Katharina Groninger has been buried in potters Field and she never was important except As an object lesson. But without gloating we can Point out that miss Groninger bet on the wrong horse. A native of Germany she moved to this country never be came a citizen and in 1908 began buying German Marks. Eventually she spent $350,000 on them toward the end millions of Marks at a time. In 1936 she went on Home Relief. This year she began receiving $45 a month old age pension from the government she never thought it Worth while adopting. Now her body lies in Potter s Field. It if she had bought u. S. Bonds. A a a a Roosevelt is right president Roosevelt s refusal to support any official Observance of Pearl Harbor Day is very sound. That Day is As he says a Day of a great it is also a Day of deep disgrace for the american nation. W e Are not disgraced because we lost an engagement on that Day. We Are disgraced because we were sound asleep we were caught off guard we were beaten As a result of disorganization incoordination unforgivable naivete. The american people Are not capable of spending an entire Day in the depth of dejection which alone would express How we should feel about Pearl Harbor. So lets not try. Lets whip he japs and get ourselves a Day of rejoicing that we can prop Erly celebrate. Strong Point on new Britain and new Guinea.
