Americans know about the German general staff. But we think of it As something like our own a part of the military organization specifically charged with military strategy. In Germany it is something else something far More sinister. The German general staff is a military body plus. All German foreign policy during the last 75 years has either been initiated by it or required its approval. Germany a internal affairs have been similarly controlled. In plotting for War the German general staff runs Germany top to Bottom. In his current Best seller a the time for decision a or. Sumner Welles late of our state department takes great pains to elucidate these Points. More important he describes the German general staff a schemes for tomorrow. This of course is where the american idea of a general staff can Only mislead one who does not think twice. For the German general staff plans its wars increasingly on several Levels. Americans know what happened in France by 1940, the French were thinking defense As enough and defense Wasny to. Why did they think like that the German general staff had arranged it that Way. Total War Means planning to control the enemy a mind. Precisely such plans Are under Way in Germany now directed this time at other nations including America plans which can succeed unless americans realize what they mean. They Are military plans yes but that Side of it is by no Means the whole scheme. The German general staff lays its plans to involve an enemy a economic life his political life his social life even his thinking which May be directed far More subtly than most americans Are willing to moral is Clear. The German nation May suffer defeat after defeat. The German ruler May be the Kaiser or Hitler or tomorrows most plausible front Man. But if the rest of the world permits it the German general staff will go on scheming and finding some Way to put its schemes into effect. Americans must never again be deceived by descriptive terms labels innocent seeming to our ears but conceived in any spirit but War today by Dewitt Mackenzie associated press Ivar analyst few Battles for cities in this War have so intrigued the Peoples of the Western allies As that Over ancient Aachen probably because they Hope that from it they can learn the strength of Germany a determination and the extent of her ability to make a finish fight. Its Likely that this grim Battle will indeed give us a fairly accurate answer to the problem which is both military and psychological. Already it is Clear that Hitler intends to make this a test Case As witness the manner in which he has Flung crack armoured troops into the conflict at the approaches to the old town. Thus we have further confirmation that he is determined to hang on to the death and still is capable of causing us plenty of trouble. On the other Side of the nazi ledge is proof that not All German soldiers or civilians Are willing to die for him. His officers in Aachen have been shooting both civilians and soldiers who tried to surrender. However that a not conclusive and further evidence is needed to enable us to gauge the dictators control Over his people. Berlin brags that the nazi commander who rejected the american ultimatum to surrender replied a even an american cannot ask a City like Aachen where thirty seven German emperors were crowned to passing by the thought that we not Only can but did demand surrender we find much food for thought in this line. The Hitler Ite commander would have been Correct if he had said a Germany cannot afford to surrender a famous old City like Aachen the first important City to be attacked by land forces in the fatherland proper since the Day of the loss of Aachen will be a tremendous Shock to German morale so great that Hitler dare not risk it if he possibly can hang on. Of by Hook or by Crook he could built out of it an epic of German resistance it would strengthen morale. By the same Token the allies need Aachen for the psychological effect on the germans. But that s Only half of the Story. Militarily this City is of great importance to both sides. For the allies its the Gateway in the corridor leading from Belgium into Germany a vital railway and Highway Center. For the germans its a powerful defensive Anchor in their Siegfried line. Undoubtedly Aachen remains one of the notable possibilities for a break through to the Rhine and thence into the heart of Germany. The crossing of the Rhine which May prove even a greater Barrier than the Siegfried line is Likely to be a major problem and one Over which speculation is futile pending developments. We can say however that one of the great prizes for which Eisenhower presumably is headed is the big rhenish City of Dussel Dorf which lies on the River about 24 Miles North of Cologne another goal. Dusseldorf is among the greatest Industrial cities of Germany. Its also one of the principal transportation centers of the country with trunk railways and highways running direct to Berlin.

Of course almost everybody had expected such time worn issues As the state of the health of the White House incumbent to crop up Here and there. This has become a perennial charge which most people either accept or reject Vith the result that converts Are far and few Between. But what brings the whole thought up is the most recent accusation of representative Clare Boothe Luce a con who is at Best a newcomer to the political scene. She is reported by the associated press to have declared that president Roosevelt is a not Only untrustworthy hut also incompetent in the Field of government. Representative Luce asks a shall we Trust the making of a new peace to the tired and shaking hands of a Man who could not keep the one he inherited when he was Young and Strong a while it is not our affair we believe the Republican party would do Well either to censor the distinguished woman representatives speeches for the remainder of the Campaign or simply put her in cold storage. Political races can be lost but not won on charges of such a personal James Marlow Washington oct. 14�? a a servicemen Are salting away a lot of their hard earned Money in War Bonds. They re doing it by allotments having it much deducted from each month s pay or buying with Cash. The monthly investments now soldiers about $46,000,000 Navy men about $13, 000,000. So far the most popular allotment has been $6.25. Taken monthly from a Many a pay in three months full payment of $18.75 has been made for a $25 Bond. Now there is a new $10 a a a us Bond for servicemen issued aug. I. They can buy it for $7.50. It has to be in one payment. The Bend purchases do double duty they help servicemen save Money for after the War and they help Siphon off an overseas Serviceman a Loose Cash. With less Loose Cash servicemen have less Chance to bid up prices in freed or occupied territory. This helps prevent inflation there. Bond purchases Are Only part of the Money coining out of a Serviceman s pay. Allotments also Are made for dependents at Home for life insurance and for a special soldiers Deposit fund. That Deposit fund is a savings account in which servicemen put their Money either through allotments or by direct Cash payments in the latter Case they take their Money to their finance officer who keeps the accounts and credits them with their deposits. This is the Way the army used As an example Here Sells Bonds Effort is made to get the men interested in buying Bonds before they leave the country of they want the Bonds bought out of their monthly pay they sign an allotment card Lien the regular deductions Are made.
