Back of Holt hotel 612�?8th St. By corp. Don Dana there has been considerable fanfare recently about the part Public relations plays in the armed forces. The saturday evening Post ran an editorial recently on the subject. Their theory was that the whole subject of Public relations was badly confused that if a a a jobs of Public relations could be done by any nation it could Best be done by this one. They went on to state that the germans had patterned their powerful and effective propaganda Bureau after our great advertising agencies those which had sold coca cola Lucky strikes and american motor cars to the world. Likewise time Magazine has in recent issues been discussing newspapermen in the army and the part they should play. A Hartford conn., paper ran an editorial on the subject a Short time Back with the Sheppard Field Public relations office As the principal target. It there is this much confusion in such All knowing places it stands to reason that some of the Sheppard Field personnel May be slightly Uncertain of the part Public relations plays in the army. Although first endorsement makes no claim to knowing More than others it would like to express some of its own ideas on the matter As Long As so Many others Are doing it. Public relations could not win a War by itself perhaps although the German propaganda Bureau has won several without a shot being fired it can assist other branches of the service greatly in gaining and strengthening Public support of the War Effort. No Tine w ill deny that publicity made Coco cola a very simple herbal drink into a powerful financial institution. Why then do some doubt that publicity of the proper sort is not absolutely essential to All War Effort the american system of Public relations is not to be confused with methods employed by the German propaganda Bureau headed by the vaunted Hen Goebbels. They Are not one and the same thing. They Are not even similar. everything that is effective in the German method could be done As Well by the americans. After All we invented the complicated system of intricate advertising which was found to be so necessary to make american products dominant in world Trade. Public relations is responsible for Many matters. Examine for a moment the Public relations office Here at Sheppard Field for instance. All of you know about this newspaper about the regular radio programs and about the special broadcasts. did you know that hundreds of items Are mailed weekly to newspapers throughout the United states did you know that every Story that you read in a newspaper about Sheppard Field is cleared through this office did you know that in cases of emergency in which information must be disseminated to the Public the commandant of Sheppard Field expects Public relations to handle the Job quickly and efficiently. There Are other Public relations tasks which Are not matters of Public information. Public relations is under the jurisdiction of military intelligence which explains what is meant. There is a reason Why All of these things Are done. The reason very succinctly is that an army is Only As Strong As the support it receives from its country. If civilian morale is not High Soldier morale will not be High. It.
