JOHNSON NEA Service Military Writer WASHINGTON-While fore£, Fifth Columnists are being rounded up most of the leading native American fascists remain at large. Thny are either spreading virulen propaganda to poison our patriotism and weaken our war efforts, or working into some sort of defense activ- Two of the most able, George Death•'•age and Lawrence Dennis, were found, one heading a $26,000,000, con- fident.al Navy project, the other trying o become a captain in the Army's military police. But that isn't half of it. It can now be revealed that Dennis, called "the of American Fascism," is a of Baron Ulrich von Gienanth, who was Second Secretary of the German Embassy in Washington, and the Nazis' local payoff man. Dennis Served With AEF But It was Von Gionanth who gave noney to Laura' Ingalls, the aviatrix jusl convicted as an unregistered Nazi' igcnt. Dennis also Jtnew and worked with Frederick E. Aubagen, convicted German agent. Dennis was in touch with the German propaganda service in Berlin and he and D^ath erage were in touch with one another Although Dennis served in the A E' F. he has been a Totalitarian since Hitlers rise,-and attended the Nazi party congress in Nuremburg in 1937 There he was photographed with Von Gienanth, who wore Nazi party uni- orm. Dennis is a Harvard graduate, former diplomat and Wall Street man, who writes and lectures cleverly, especial- yon the economic blessings of Fas- ism for America, but also on various spects of Hitler's brand of geo-poli- ics. He is an idea man credited with lelpmg or inspiring many Fascist peechmakers and writers. He has written two books: 'The Coming American Fascism" and "Dynamics of War and Revolution." He admits that in his tow houses ne in West Englewood, N. J., and in he Berkshires, he has "pretty well locked up' 'on tires for his two auto- nobiles, on short-wave radios—he says e likes a radio in every room—and therwise. He confesses to a tidy in- ome from his "Weekly Foreign Leter of confidential information with Fascist slant which sells at §24 a Several others frequenlly criticized City Boys Learn How fmmmnmtmm\* HM.-...., , , .... --^ Filipinos Honor *U.

To over-simplify, the rule of thumb lor the armed services might be interpreted as "Don't tell anything whcih the enemy may not know " The word "may" is important. If there is any doubt about the enemy's having any given morsel of information, the policy is to apply the shush I' rom the standpoint of strategy thals a good rule. The harder you nake it for an enemy agent to do his job, the safer you are. An axis agent may have all the information ies after on any subject-say plane Ji'oduetion— except one little detail Supply him with thnl detail or make t easy for him to get it and his job s done.

Just as big a pain is the problem of dealing with government agencies in determinin which of their wartime activities are cen- sorable and to what degree The policy in this war, as you know is not to have one central know-all and tell-little agency like the Creel Committee of the last war .Instead every government agency has its own service of information and it tells what U thinks should be told, subject only to a general supervision policy worked out by an Interdepartmental Committee on War Information, on which are representatives of 16 fed- Brig.-Gen.

Officially, the armed services do not criticize or question this protce- dure which is an administration port n • TT be tl ' aced rj e ht back to the White House where sits the commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy, Privately, however, there are plenty of officers who think this policy leads to 1G different kinds of confusion. If this scribbling kibitzer interprets this criticism correctly, it boils down to a belef that there is too mucl civilian advice and too much meddling of non-military government agencies in matters that are in final analysis the concern of the lightin men. Putting it bluntly, Arm yarn! Navy men 'lend to resent interference of the Office of Facts and Figures, the Office of Government Reports, the Office for Emergency Management and the Office of Censorship in shaping policy on what military information to give to the public. And by military information is not meant just the news of troop movements and actual combat, but the much broader field of training and equipping the Army, and the whole war production program Army-Navy Baby Last Time The Army and the Navy do have a valid claim on a knowledge of censorship. They ran their military censorship in the last war. They exercise censorship over news that goes out of amps and bases today. They have lad staff plans and training for set- ing up censorship for years. Even low, the Navy controls censorship f cables and international commun- cations and the Army censors mail ver and above the work clone by the Office of Censorship. Army and Navy procurement branches exercise further censorship on war production. The Army's Industrial Information Branch recently issued an extensive set of rules, restricting publication and broadcasting of many types of news on military construction, supply contracts production. The publication of newspaper special war industry editions, giving a roundup on a community's entire war production efforts, bus been suspended. A check is kept on the 2000 house organs of leading industrial firms with war contracts, to keep them from inadvertently givin° away military industrial secrets and the location of troops through thc publication of honor rolls of employes in the services.
