No, 1 didn't cither. But I was Englishtened by Commander Kenneth Murray, a walking storeiiouse of information. Murray, a naval veteran of both world wars, gleefully reported that also starting this week is a picture called "Mutiny," which is about the war of 1812. He is technical advisor on the film.

Maybe it's the military gob- bledegook—standard on both sides —that has you confused. Generals as well as doctors sometimes have a hard time explaining their operations in the language of the common man. Perhaps a verbal baedecker putting their key phrases into ordinary English might help you. Well, one has been drawn up—all in fun—by an air force officer in Korea. It was releayed to me by Gordon Gammack, Tribune columnist. Des Moines "WITH WAR ONCE AGAIN dominating newspapers, radio, politics, and the cigarette ads," the anonymous air force officer said in preface, "It is timely to publish a short guide to military phraseology so the American people may better understand the true conditions of the subject." He then listed, as the key phrases "likely to be employed in this war and the ones to follow," these cliches , . . and their t-ranslations: ". . . Planned withdrawal to strengthen positions ..." (We're running.) ". . . Fleeing, in confusion . . (They're running.) "... Forced by inclement weatJi- er to find a secondary target . . ." (We're advancing). ". . . Suicide attack by crazed Oriental fanatics . . ." (They're advancing). ". . . Spokesman described the results as 'satisfactory' and said . . . (Wo missed again). . .
