to native, home-grown idiom. Just as
it happens along, uses a lot of it
himself and commends the boys
"who keep the flies off the horse's

ners of feis command is whom he
takes special pride.
“The tapsf vsl— is Ml mine,"

This came up in connection with
talk at this month marking the gen
eral's 23rd straight year in the air
services of the army, and the tact
that operating a fighter or bomber
plane is a matter of a complex or
ganization of human and technical
factors, undreamed of when the gen
eral first went aloft
“Every bombing mission is a
matter at team work.’’ said Gen
eral Bradley. “It Is net by any
means just a piloting Job. The
aerial gunner is a member of
the team without whom the mis
sion might fall. So Is the bom
bardier. the navigator, the engi

crew. The failure of one can
mean the destruction «f all.”
He said be was getting a "splendid
type of young men for all these
jobs" and stressed his view that the
war would be woo by "straight
shooting with bullets and bombs.”
He was overseas in the last big war.

having learned flying in 1912. A Na

1 tsHIXGTOX.—So~f of tbe criti
cism of British gwoera'-ji-p—and cf
certain admirals la ova- own navy—
is absolutely just. But it is a good
deal simpler to critx zt than to find
tb - -
Certainly it is not true that in tbe
Cm ted States navy anyone not a
graduate cf Anna pci. s could never
hope to be an admiral—oar even a
captain. Few men promoted trees
tbe enlisted personnel have ever
gotten beyond the grade of lieuten
ant commander—two grades below
Naval officers will explain, when
cn the defensive, that usually tbe
men are so much older, when, for
some demonstrated ability, they
reach tbe commissioned rank, that
it is xwt in the nature at things that
they should get very much further
up the ladder at promotion before
retirement tor age.
In the army it is much easier for
a non-West Point man to get up,
especially if he had a good educa
tion before entering the service. But
roost at these cases also will be
found not to have resulted from pro
motions from tbe enlisted person
nel. Usually these men went into tbe
army as commissioned officers be
cause of qualifications suited to tbe
period of induction.
Nazis Do It—We Don*t
The real problem comes right j
down to this—what is there about
the German system which makes
the development ot a Rommel pos
sible. and which makes such a de
velopment in either tbe British or
U. S army and navy almost un
There is m doubt that there
coadd he some form of liberali
sation of oar promotion systems,
sad the British, which would re
salt in s substantial improve
ment. Bat it is not half as easy
ss it sounds.
It is so easy to say that men
should be promoted by merit rather
than seniority. But HOW is that
merit to be determined—and by
whom? That's where the trouble
comes in. Tbe moment we aban
don seniority in a democratic form
otf government, or a country recog
nizing tbe class system as unoffi
cially and extra legally as Britain
does, are open the door even wider
to favoritism than is alleged to have
been the case in Britain.
It is well to remember that our
own army and navy have not been
tree from political promotions. Each
war we have engaged in has brought
forth political pressure for certain
military appointments. This busi
ness of determining promotions is
far from easy.

Fear of Restrictions on
Freedom of the Press
There is a very strong desire on
tbe part of the government to cur
tail the number of editions put out
by newspapers in big cities. Natur
ally there is considerable fear that
any attempt to butt into this situa
| txon will be resented as an inter
ference with the freedom of the
Tbe fact remains that a re
daction in the number of edi
tions would help tremendously
in saving rubber.
In most cities where this is im
portant the publishers would love to
have some excuse to curtail, al
ways providing of course that their
competitive interests are not hurt
Thus if there are two morning news
papers in one city (there are only
about eight such cities) both papers
would save considerable money tf
there should be no edition of either
until say 10 o’clock at night
There is another element
which makes the whole issue a
hot potato. Government inter
ference amid be bitterly resent
ed in certain cities where the
paper, which might reasonably
contend that it was hurt by the
restriction, is branded as an
But there is another complication
both in these cities and in tbe great
er number of cities where there is
only one morning newspaper, but
keen competition between the morn
ing and afternoon newspapers for
circulation and advertising. This is
that at present tbe morning paper
gets a certain additional amount of
circulation by reason of very early
As a matter three newspaper men
out of four—the writers, not the pub
lishers—despise early editions—only
read them, or rather glance at them,
because it is a part of their job.
