S. really felt the regimentation that must be imposed if a nation throws its whole weight against an enemy. But the machinery is already being put together to put the country into its next war far more expeditiously than before. For 11 months after the United States entered the war in 1917. all was confusion. The navy was bidding against the army and both were bidding against the allies who were desperate for supplies they had been buying here rather free-handedly before we entered. Then came the war Industries board hcade by a tall, energetic New York finacier already so rich that profiteering could not appeal to him. He brought oredr out of chaos and congress recognized it with a decoration. Another Is Named Now the government has picked another man, even younger than Baruch in his war days, to head the War Industries Administration when we tangle with our next enemy. He is Edward R. Stetinius, 39-year-old chair man of the United States Steel corporation. When the next war comes, he will be next to the commander of the military forces and that the president, the most important man in America. Louis Johnson, assistant secretary of war. said Stettinius will have even more authority than Baruch had. Baruch could stop an industry in its tracks if he felt it was not cooperating, or if he considered it not •essential to winning the war. What It Means "Had the war gone on another year," said Baruch, "our whole civil population would have gradually emerged (as wardrobes and inventories became exhausted) in cheap but ser- Churchill, Strong Man During Crisis Popular Demand In England To Place Him In Cabinet By MILTON BRONNER NBA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON.— In his 65th year—an age which most Americans deem a period for retirement rather than {or further strenuous efforts — Winston Churchill finds the Englishman-in- the-street and many in high places leaning upon him as upon a strong man in time of crisis. The popular demand to include Churchill in the British cabinet is based upon the fact that the Nazis hate and fear him. His boosters point to his boundless, youthful energy compared with the apathetic, footling, aged efforts at same of the pet cabineteers to whom Premier Chamberlain clings. They call attention to Churchill's record—that of a man who has held practically every big political cabinet post, except that of the Premiership. They cite his books and speeches in which for the past six years he has been warning Britain that the Nazi regime constitutes dire danger to democracy and that Britain should arm. They assert—and with good reason —that almost more than any man now living in Britain, Churchill could issue the trumpet call on the stump which would arouse the whole people. He Comes Of Fighting Stock There is fighting blood in his veins. He is a direct descendant of a great Churchill who beca'me the first Duke of Marlborough. He is a grandson of the seventh Duke.

And all other good drug By JERRY BRONDFIELD NBA Service Sports Writer CLEVELAND — A three-ring circus in the clouds could very easily be another name for the National Air Races at Cleveland's gigantic municipal airport, Sept. 2-4. Crack army and navy squadrons, parachute jumping and trick flying will play a prominent part, but major interest will lie in the speed events for which a record prize list of $85,000 has been posted. Indications are that the Thompson Trophy, Greve Trophy and Bendix Transcontiental events will find new marks going into the books. In winning the Thompson Trophy last year. Col. Roscoe Turner turned the plans at an evarge speed of 283 miles per hour for a new record Turner predicts the winner of this year's closed course classic will have to do 300 miles per hour for the 300-mile route. Turner is prepared to post that average himself but so are a half dozen others.

Winston Churchill was educated at Sandhurst, England's West Point. He fought with the Spanish in Cuba. He saw service in his own country's army in India, Egypt and South Africa. He made fame for himself as a war correspondent. Then he side down, entered politics first as a conservative, later as a Liberal, and, still later, as a Conservative once more. That the British fleet was all together in the North Sea and ready- to the la.st button when the world war broke out, was largely due to the foresight of Churchill, who was at that time First Lord of the Admiralty. Later in the war, after serving for a time with the troops at the front, he was .successively Ministe of Munitions, War Secretary, Aii Minister and Colonial Secretary. His la.st ministerial post was as Chancellor of the Exchequer under Premier Baldwin—1924-29.
