HAINR3, publisher Editor .SUBSCRIPTION RATES , By carrier In the City of Blythevim, 16o\per "" 1 New Picket. Weapon No Martyrdom for Moseley The proposals that Gen. George Van Horn Moseley be convt-mnrlialed and the suggestion of Thomas E. Stone, .chairman of the Council of U. S. Veterans, Inc., that he is guilty of treason, seem pretty middling ill-advised. Whether any such charges could be technically sustained against the general under army regulations, is a matter of military law, in which we are not skilled. But it would seem unwise to pursue them. For the very worst thing that could happen would be at this'point to make a martyr of General Moseley. Hitler never amounted to much until he was jailed for his sickly "putsch" attempt against the republic, and the Communist movement is much indebted to the building up of martyrs in the public, and especially the party, eye. The general has been very definitely out of order. Despite a service record in many ways distinguished, he seems never to have grasped the fundamental fact of the American military service- that it must not, and generally does not, meddle with politics. The Amen- raan way implies a complete separation between the' military and civil powers_ which is something galling to military men with political minds. Yet it is basic. An American soldier is an American trained and pledged lo carry out missions assigned to him by the appropriate' civil authorties. He is not an intriguer, nor has he any duty to ''save the country" except under definite orders from his properly-constituted superiors, chief of whom is a civilian president. • . • General Moseley should know these things, as practically all of his associates in the service know them, and as 99 44/100ths of them observe them. As a pensioner drawing ?6000 a year from the taxpayers, the general is not I only subject to the military authority I directly, but lie is subject to a canon ' of good taste which dictates that he employ his well-earned leisure in pursuits outside the active political field. There is always trout-fishing, and the collecting of stamps is said to induce quietness of mind. The general, during his active career, served his country wel,L The country, in retiring the general on a generous and sufficient pension, recognized this, but it also pointedly indicated that it no longer required his formal active services as a soldier. From this, any man able to take a broad hint might deduce that neither does the country require his informal The traditional strike picket-line, with its banners, slogans, shouted appeals and the like, has now been overshadowed by the 1030 streamlined version—a picket-line armed with cameras, busily clicking o(T a record of those who arc determined to work in defiance of the pickets. There is peculiar power in this new weapon in the labor wars. Men may well quail before the staring lenses who would light their way through clubs and stones. The same reluctance has been observed on the part of pickets in some strikes, for once the shutter clicks, there is the record, permanent as the strip of film, not to be gainsaid by denial or alibi. This sort of a camera record bus ot- len in the past been used to identify men who have taken part in violent strike disturbances. Now it has been turned the other way in an effort to apply a little goose-sauce to the gander. Probably every man lias done at some time things he would not care to be photographed in the act of doing. Yet if we are correctly taught, each man some day must face and explain a more-than-photographic record on the Heavenly Books. Why, then, worry about a little earthly camera-work? o/ publication in this column of editorials from other newspapers does not necessarily mean endorsement but is an acknowledgment of Interest In Ihe subjects discussed. Do Away With Pinball With those who insist the plnball machine is the Instrument of an inexcusable racket we are in full agreement, and we hope sentiment In this community will make successful demands for the diminution of It. It is n thoroughly bad influence morally - and it Is without any defense, from the economic standpoint. For the cru saders against the plnball machines, However, \ve have one general word ol warning. Do not allow yourselves to be deceived Into thinking thnt it is possible lo half-scotch this snake. The only way to get satisfaction from the plnball machines Is to do away with them entirely. Experience In this regard is long and uniform, and 11 proves beyond nny reasonable doubt that control of the plnball machines Is practically impossible. U is out of the question to have enough officers to supervise all these machines or any major percentage ot them, Notices pasted on machines that minors nre not allowed to play them does not mean n lliing and how could It? If Memphis is lo be free of this laiceny-by- mnrbles performance, it will be necessary to do whatever is needed to outlaw the machines entirely. Commissioner CHIT Davis said he wished all the plnball machines were at the bbttom of the river, and that's a splendid idcn and a suggestion the only wny to be really rid of them. —Memphis Commercial Appeal.
