And the effect As a whole is renovating and More complicated. The business of government is today vastly More complicated than it was during the Days of Lincoln but if president Roosevelt had time to Call before him a representative group of All the people of the nation Farmers labourers businessmen lawyers professors housewives a he would find that nearly four out of every five would have definite suggestions As to How the country could Speed up its War Effort. And like Lincoln he probably would be a a invigorated by the knowledge that people were eager to get on with the War. Their suggestions would cover a multitude of subjects War production morale inflation. Many would even advise president Roosevelt on military matters. To get the people s ideas on How they would Speed up the War Effort the Institute instructed its staff of Field reporters to interview people in All walks of life in every state of the Union on the following question a if you were the president what would you do to Speed up the War Effort a Range in responses. Statements made in response to this question Range from suggestions for the immediate Start of a second front to the killing of All politicians. But the suggestions which occur More frequently than any other reveal Public anxiety Over lagging War production. Foremost in the Public a mind when it thinks of production problems Are strikes with their attendant evils. The Public would put a Stop to All strikes during wartime would draft strikers in some cases and would take Over strike Ridden plants in others. By Kenneth Roberts Kennebunkport. Rogers a hard drinking hard fighting hell raising indefatigable indestructible woodsman and Hunter who was born and brought up n in Concord. N. H., formed his first company of rangers in 1755 to fight off the French and their Indian allies attempt to become masters of North America. To fight these enemies on their own t rms meant Drift like an owl through the Forest to take cover on Mountain slopes on the Shore of lakes and streams in i tech a i in open Fields to steal fore revolutionary War.

Only Rogers did it. In the ensuing six years expensive and elaborately equipped British and colonial armies fought under British generals on Lake Champlain and in Canada straining and struggling to break the determined attempts of the French and the indians to overrun new England and the fabulous Little known Empire partly glimpsed by those who had explored the valleys of the Ohio and the Mississippi. Some of those British generals were Able some were stupid and i shortsighted but not one of them knew hew to train fighters who could meet the French and indians on their own terms. Only Robert Rogers seemed Able to do it and even Che most inept British generals recognized that fact. Thus Rogers rangers grew from one company in 1755 to eight companies a Quot Ore the War was Over in 1766 and those eight companies rangers were the eyes the nazis insist on invasion claim Dieppe Battle meant to be More than a raid of ears the flashing spearheads and the avenging furies of the armies that eventually drove the French from North America. Journal tells Story. Rogers kept a journal of his raids and fights and those journals were published in England in 1765. On the yellowed pages of that ancient Book Are set Down the Bare Bones of an unbeatable sort of War that struck the English As being new and startling but that in reality was old As the Hills and a ill always be As Good and As unbeatable As it Ever was.
