t&TO*IAL5 t*i IM^—•••» Editorial - - - WASHINGTON HOLLYWOOD THUKDAV, APML 13, 1944 How To Toiturt Your H«tbond We Are Failing Miserably It waste paper is as short as the government tells us it is—and we believe that this information Is conservative if anything—then we ought to be doing a whale of a lot more about it in Big Spring. The Boy Scouts, as has been said before, have been doing the only worx toward this highly important campaign. If any adult, outside of scout leaders and the householders who regularly bundle up their scrap paper, has done anything about the collection, then we are unaware of it. It is beyond us. The government is crying, pleading and resorting to all means to get in salvage paper. Response right here in our own city Is such that one is driven to the conclusion that we either cannot comprehend these simple utterances, or we don't care, or we are too lazy to do anything about them. The nation has a quota of 667,000 tons of salvaged paper monthly. That figures out roughly 9.4 pounds per capita. We venture that in the past month Big Spring has scarcely contributed as much as two pounds per capita. If we could organize scrap metal drives, if we «ould get in the aluminum and the rubber, then why can't we get this paper which is so vital in the making of boxes and wrappers for blood plasma, sulfa drugs, first aid kits, X-ray films, surgical dressings, ammunition, emergency rations, bomb crates, food containers, and thousands of others? Other places have even enlisted army aid in the collection of waste paper. Sc far as we know, that is one possibility which has not even been explored .here. At the rate we are going, it probably won't. And we probably won't do what is expected of us in this campaign, either. Making Housing Go Further The housing worry seems to have established itself as an equal with death, taxes and the water situation as an inevitable problem here. There is, frankly, no hope for real relief here. There is no reason to suppose that we will get more housing from any source. The only possible approach is to make better use of what we have. As we have suggested before, it accomplishes nothing to lecture that wives and families of servicemen ought to stay home. They don't, and that's that- Our girls follow their husbands wherever they go and they face similar housing problems elsewhere. Wherefore, doing to others as we would want them to do unto us, there is no other course except to make extra quarters available to our temporary residents. That means a bedroom, better still a bedroom with kitchen privileges, or if possible, a small apartment. Finally, if a house or apartment is to be temporarily vacated, why not sub-let it for that space of time? Servicemen who have apa<- aents, houses, etc. can help their brethren ... as regular residents in this manner. The War Today by DeWitt Mackenzie Associated Pres» War Analyst Old King Vittorio Emanuele's promise of retirement may presage the end of monarchy for Italy. Of course that's not what the aged sovereign has in mind when he says he will turn the rule over to Crown Prince Umberto as soon as Allied troops enter Rome. Emanuele hopes to continue the dynasty through his son, but whatever may be the outcome there's no doubt that the Italian throne is rocking dangerously. Officially the question of whether the monarchy should continue hasn't arisen, excepting in that it's been agreed the Italian people shall choose their own form of government after the war—providing it's democratic. That doesn't bar a monarchy. However, there's a trend towards the left in Italy and one of the strong elements is communism —an interesting circumstance, inasmuch as Mussolini established his dictatorship on the strength of his claim that the country was in dire danger from communism. Emanueie's promise to retire has eased a tense situation, since there has been heavy pressure on him to abdicate, especially by the Italian communists. It's expected that his action will permit of the formation of a new cabinet which will include communist representation. Allied representatives sax the only part their governments bad in the development was to assure Emanuele they had no objection to his making this move. However, the Allied representatives themselves expressed approval of the action. While Britain apparently favors Emanuele's retirement, it's hard to believe she would welcome the abolishment of the monarchy. ,Her policy has been to support European thrones as calculated to lend strength to the monarchial form of government to which she herself subscribes. However, she is of course wedded to democracy. As things stand, the present Italian government will continue until the war is over. Then there will be a plebiscite to determine the form of government desired. If the nation'returns to normal quickly after peace comes, it may be one of the first to register self-determination.

On Sunday evening he came down from the pedestal of his central principles and talked, not as a moral lawgiver to mankind but as the American Secretary d State. The effect was persuasive and reassuring, and if Mr. Hull will continue to render an accounting he will earn a confident support among the people. He will earn it not by fine words but because the Administration will make many less mistakes that are difficult to explain If it knows that it is going to have to explain them.

What Mr. Hull had to say about the Atlantic Charter and about the process of reaching agreement at home with Congress and abroad with our allies was, it seemed to me, a wise and true account of the problem and how to proceed with it. If this policy had been announced and adopted many weeks ago when the War Department, the State Department, the military commanders, the British government and all the other United Nations had agreed that it was the right policy, the whole confusion about American policy in France would have been dissolved. What Mr. Hull said on Sunday evening was the whole substance of what the serious critics were asking for. * * * But, unhappily, the President's remarks on Friday have to be explained away before Mr. Hull's statement can clear the air. Mr. Roosevelt said that nobody outside of France knows what the people inside France want. That the new quarrel between General de Gaulle and General Giraud. The reasoning of the French at Algiers is self-evident: x x x This General Giraud will do the picking and Choosing x x x be determined by military men, then let the military man be General Charles de Gaulle, the president of the national committee. Thus Mr. Roosevelt's desire to thwart General de Gaulle has led to the destruction of General Giraud and new divisions rather than greater unity among the French. This is inefficiency In the conduct of diplomacy. * * * It seems a pity to have to dwell upon a matter of this sort when one's every impulse is to applaud Mr. Hull's speech. It is a very good speech. But the good effect of it will be temporary unless the . actual conduct of our diplomacy v becomes much more coherent and much more efficient. We might hope that it will become so if the President and Mr. Hull make it* their duty henceforth to render an accounting. They will think more lucidly themselves if they know that they cannot rest on general principles and military secrecy but are going to have to explain what they are doing., Copyright, 1944, New York Tribune Inc.

Production Board and its predecessors discovered a tremendous morale factor in letting the men who build the instruments of war stood up under fire. He started sending these "masters' reports" to the "next of kin" —not of men who had been killed in battle. "Production c o m m u n i ques" were issued on ships, planes, guns, parachutes and almost everything else that goes into modern warfare. When all this was happening, Robert Horton was publicity director for WPB. Later, he became public relations chief for R. Adm. by censorship in letter-writing, or, who refused, on leave, to brag about their experiences. The response has been terrific. Apparently one of the psychological hurdles that all "next of kin" have to clear is that they can't endure. It's the "unknown" that bombs dropping on all sides of vessel."
