Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - September 19, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant Newso coins i vol 92, no. 221 it. Pleasant Iowa saturday evening september 19, 1970price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain Lindbergh a newest act of bravery Charles Lindbergh who is always doing Brave things As a mater of course has now tempted the wolves by publishing his War journals from 1938 to 1945. And As might have been predicted he has roused a thousand sleeping animosities. There Are those who cannot forgive him for saying in the Munich period that War would be a calamity for the whole Western world or for trying to keep the . Out of the path of the typhoon once it had started blowing. Jewish organizations still hold it against him that he once said their a interests in the country Are behind the War a and it will probably be whispered All Over again that he is anti semitic. What nonsense this is i know from my personal experience. I have written the Story before in a piece for National review some ten years ago and had the pleasure of seeing the piece quoted on Page one of the new York times. But who remembers journalism for very Long briefly the Story was this a Lindbergh biographer had repeated the cliches about Lindbergh a pre world War ii trips to Germany without bothering to visit the Yale Library where he might have had recourse to an Eye opening manuscript by colonel Truman Smith who had been . Military attache in Berlin in 1937 and 1988. I had heard about the Smith manuscript and obtained permission to read it among other things it told about one specific Mission which Lindbergh had undertaken to Germany on behalf of the jews. The . State department thought it Worth sending Lindbergh to Berlin in Hopes that he could persuade the nazi government to let jews leave Germany with enough of their wordly goods to Start life All Over again in a new country. The reason for choosing Lindbergh was that he was an aviator who presumably could get close enough to Hermann Goering a world War i flier to explain the reasonableness of the proposition the theory being that go ering would somehow break Down the hitherto Adamant prejudices of his fuehrer Adolph Hitler. The Mission of course came to nothing. But it certainly established Lindbergh a concern for the jews of Germany. Did Roosevelt and Harold in toes when they turned savagely on Lindbergh for opposing our entry into the War know about this Lindbergh had accepted a medal from Goering in the course of acting As a . Emissary he could hardly have refused it without jeopardizing his value to the state department and to the War department which used him both diplomatically and to obtain secret hats about the state of German rearmament. Plane hijacked to Cuba returns to us signs of the times Miami up a an Allegheny airlines 727 Jet hijacked to Cuba by a Young negro who first released the 91 passengers returned safely to Miami today with its Crew. The big Jet left Havana a Jose Marti Airport at 10 33 . Edwand landed fit 11 20 . At i fish still helping those in need Lindbergh was absolutely Correct int his fears that the British and the French were incapable of standing up to Germany he had seen those German aircraft factories and had been Able to compare them with the English and French productive. Capacities where he went wrong was in the intangibles he could not guess that Hitler would override his general staff and plunge Germany into the sort of Nightmare that Bismarck had feared a dragged out two front War. Lindbergh tells his editors today that though we won the War by a military sense we let ourselves in for calamities that May end with the breakdown of Western civilization. In place of Germany and Japan we now face the even More monstrous totalitarian empires of soviet Russia and red China. The British Empire has collapsed1 much of Western culture has been destroyed a and a we lost the generic heredity formed through aeons by Many million whether we might have avoided much of this if we had Only fought the War differently is a Nice question. General Albert Wedemeyer who was general Marshall so a planner until he annoyed Churchill once too often thought that if we had Weed up a second front in Brittany and Normandy to 1943 instead of a year later Tai 1944 we could have caught the germans when they were trapped deep in soviet Russia. War under such circumstances says Wedemeyer would have enabled the Western allies to penetrate far to the East thus saving Czechoslovakia Hung Ary East Germany and part of Poland from the clutches of the Bear even As things stood in 1945, we could have beaten the russians into Prague and to Berlin it a Pointer decision that saddled with the absurd Berlin corridor.
