The military mind is a wondrous thing! Once it
is set on something it stays set and not even the at
om bomb can budge it. Right now the military
mind is set on having the biggest, army, navy and
air force in the world, with a personnel recruited
via Prussian method of compulsory military train
ing. According to the distinguished atomic phy
sicist, Dr. J. R. Oppenheimer (Dr. Oppenlieimer
directed the atomic research at Los Alamos, N. M.)
one atomic raid on congested United States centers
could kill 40,000,000 Americans. A single bomb of
improved design could transform New York City
and its millions of inhabitants into an incandescent
pillar of gas in the wink of an eye. All this the at
omic bomb can do, but there’s one thing it can’t d
That is, change the military mind.
‘ Before he died the late Admiral McCain gave us
a snapshot of the military mind'. Said Admiral Me
Cain: “Give me the fast carrier forces and you can
have the atom bomb.”
Chief of Staff General Marshall is another who
takes the ato mobmb in his stride. General Marsh
all wanted peacetime military conscription before
ti e atom bomb and he wants it now. Maybe the ar
om bomb COULD destroy all living things over a
great area. Maybe it could exterminate the train
ed with the untrained, and the brave with the faint
of heart. But this isn’t going to alter General
Marshall’s thinking. No siree! And Generali
Marshall has a retort too. “The fundamental re
quirements of conducting successful war have not
changed,” lie pontificated to a House Committee.
Shades of Maginot!
In his recent Biennial Report, the Chief of Staff
asked for universal military training. He was im
patient with those who oppose universal military
training, saying “They often seem to give undue
importance to restrictions on our freedom of life."
Get it? When we were called upon to go to war,
we were told “freedom of life” was everything,
that we value this freedom too highly, that we givfc
it “an undue importance,” and that we would make
a good abrgain in exchanging it for what General
Marshall optimistically calls, “at last a probability
But General Marshall is right about one thing,
Compulsory military training does mean “restric
tions on our freedom of life.” Militarism always
was and always will be the deadly foe of democ
racy. And to strengthen American militarism
through the adoption of peacetime conscription is
to build a veritable fortress for race prejudice and
to make a five-star general of Jim Crow! You
know it and I know it, and the experience of milit
ary race relations in the recent war has proved it.
Yes, the military mind is a wondrous thing. It
is an antediluvian mind and it always fights the
next war according to the best strategy and tactics
used in the last. But it is not utterly without logic.
A conscript army may be useless in war but it still
has its place in capitalist society. It is still the
best device earer invented to break strikes, hold the
working class down, and indoctrinate youth with
the national chauvinistic spirit. In Imperial tier
many, military conscription was frankly regarded
as a bulwark against Socialism—and as a bastion
for class rule.
The drive to impose peacetime military conscrip
tion is now in full cry. Even before this column is
released President Truman will have put the full
power of the Administration behind it. Potent
capitalists forces and the plutocratic press will al
so join the clamor. Against this reactionary array
the workers, Negro and white, must unite in protest
Even7 man and woman who perceives the tragic and
sinister implications of military conscription should
write to his or her congressman and denounce in the
strongest terms the proopsed rape of American’s
anti-militarist tradition. For if we fail now to beat
back tlie tide of reaction, the winning of ultimate
freedom from the system of color caste and wage
slavery may be delayed by our falure for years or

X^eslie Swanson_Bill Heerde sen

football team, at the age of 32, is
believed t° be the oldest college
player in the nation. Heerde’s ca
reer extends over a 15-year period
from his prep days at Moline high
school to his stardom at Knox.
Sports writers regarded Heerde a*
an old timer in 1939 when at 26 he
enrolled at Knox an,j played on the
freshman teams. He became a reg
ular the next two seasons in X>oth
football and basketball. War in
terrupted his education when he en
listed in the Marines. Heerde serv
ed in Marine campaigns on Guad

Saipan, anj Iowa Jima. He was
mustered out last summer and re
turned to Ivonx. Toughened by
his marine service, Heerde is in
fine fettle and is ringing down the
curtain on a long athletic career
gloriously. He snakes through op

Lunch time, during most of your

most interesting meaL New foods
are introduced first at the luncheon

at noon—or the feeding near mid

the luncheon menu, then the cereal
is moved to breakfast and often
given at the evening meal as well.
.Each new food is introduced in
very small servings. If he accepts
the new food with its different tex

well and good. But don’t give him
very much even though he may be
willing to take more. After a few
