Mr. Nichols said there had been a great improvement in standards by reason of the col- lective pursuit; of the ideal of im- nartialitv in news.

DEWITT MacKJENZlE SAYS Immorality Is Basic Problem Rehabilitation Our troubled world could profit from the lesson which Gen. Mac- Arthur has issued us calling oa his chaplains to "exert strong and di- rect moral leadership" over occu- pation troops in Japan. The soecific occasion of this move is the fear expressed by some Ameri- cans that there is "widespread, nromiscuous relationship between members of the occupying forces and Japanese women of immoral character." The general states that several times he has commended "the high standard maintained by our forces engaged in the occupation" and has "seen nothing to discount that view." Nevertheless he has acted promptly on the strength of let- ters received from. United States homes. MacArtriur has taken measures to curb prostitution and to provide the troocs with healthful recreation. But "he recognizes that these alone are noc a cure. He says moral leadership also is necessary. That is particularly impressive to one who has just returned from a Europe which is suffering ia many areas from moral and spiritual col- lapse.

This problem in the reich is aggravated by the fact that Hitler deliberately schooled the younger generation in sexual the girls that it was their duty to bear chil- dren out of wedlock to provide sol- diers for their country. However, the sex problem is far from beins the only one, for the whole moral fabric of Germany and some other countries is punched full of holes. Hitler deliberately debased his people so that they would follow Mm in his program of slaughter and conquest. The bright spot in this dark pic- ture is that there still are Germans, like the famous Past Keimoelier, who recognize that moral recon- struction is essential to recovery.
