This year's disclosures by Senate and House campaign Investigating committees and by the Dies Committee reveal that hi the current political campaign the lunatic fringe is more flourishing than It has ever beer bclorc. Not that any of the stlrrcr-uppers called in for questioning have b.-'.'i lunatics. Par from it. Individually they are smart operators, subtle h their approach, convinced of thcii own Tightness, certain that tho alone have the one particular brain of 100 proof Americanism that wil save Hie country from whatever all it. Lump all these selt-appoinlei leaders together, however, and the still constitute political trimming that can test be classified by th generic term of the lunatic frlng t on the tapestry of American life, ll's CHOI' A KECOUD ONE This lunatic fringe is change from one rmadremiium to the lies Since the first World War thci have been the Prohibitionists, tr Liberty Leaguers, the Townsendite the Coughliniles, the various flap ping wings of the Socialist Part the American l,al»r Party, the Far nicr-Laborites, the Progressives, tl America Firsters and the Communists. But this year's parade beats anything seen yet. < Three years out of four, many o[ these outfits arc among the large number of things that. 9!) per cent of the people pay no attention to. Come leap year and election year, however, and they somehow get agniticd out of all proportion to their real unimportance. The Dies Committee, alter saying for a week that over 80 per cent of the members of Sidney Hlllman's National Citizens' Political Action Committee of 141 were affiliated with Communist front organizations, finally comes up with a list of only 58 per cent, or 82 names, and of these only one is listed as an outright member of the Communist Party. He is Langston Hughes, ol New York, n poet. But the Dies report does name 25 organizations which it claims are Red front organizations. Included ii them are a co-operative bookshop ii Washington, the League for American Writers and a lot of other very bush leagues for this or that. And to this fringe there should of coursi be added the score of shirt leader and bnndists rounded up fpr the se dition ,trial in Washington. 1 The House committee investigat ever be heard from again. Siml- rly, the committee has held up to ic light Dr. Edward A. numley id his Committee for Constltution- Governincnt and Joseph V. Kinnp nd his Constitutional Education xjague. There will be others.

' ' "When I was'in my Icctis I incl a liiu'iclsomc young Navy mini at a Shrincrs' convention in San Francisco. I Us name was Bryan Conner, llwaslovc iit»i>i\ firslsighi—iindyou know the reputation of Ihc Navy for action. Bryan proposed that night, lie 1 didn't kjiow when we could marry because he liad lo get jlglit'back lo his destroyer. But we weren't going fy Wail. "I re'i{|c(! a motor boat, wcnl oul lo the destroyer and talked to Hie caplain. In five miuulcs Bryan"was on his way back to shore and we were married. "As :timc passed we bad a fine baby boy. We named liirii William. By the lime Bill was growing into young manhood my husband was assigned lo recruiting service in Atlanta. He and Bill had great times hunting and fishing together. We "were a happy family. My two brothers visited us often and we'd have tlie jollicst parties and picnics. "Then the war siarted in Europe. Our son came to us one nighl and explained how he felt about it. He wanted to be prepared so lie enlisted. "Like any mother I hated him to leave home- but 1 couldn't stand in bis way. Bill joined up. "Pearl Harbor was more than my husband could take. He had lots of friends on the Arizona, the Utah, and other ships. He was 48 years old but he asked for active duly and he gol it—on a PT boal in Hie Soulh Pacific. "My brothers gol in loo—Al in llie Army, Mike in Ihe Seabecs. There they were—all four of llicm in it, my husband nnd brother Mike in the Pacific; my son and brolher Al in Africa. "I had to do something. So I went lo welding school. After I finished school 1 taught welding. My thoughts were always with my husband, my son, and my brothers. I was working for them. I was living for their return. On June 30th of last year 1 opened this telegram: The Secretary of War desires thai I lender his deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your son. Keport received slates lhat he was killed in action on June 28th in the North African Theatre of War. "Four days lalcr, on Ihc 4th of July, I got another message: Deeply renrcl lo Inform yon Hull your firother, Michael /.ailnrkin, wis killed in iiclimi In per- fbrinnnce of tiis duty mid in the service of his eounlry in llie South I'aeilic on July 2, 1943. "On July 8lli I read: The Secretary of War desires ttmt ! temlfr tils deepest sympathy to yon In llie loss of yinir brother, Allan 7-iidorkin. Repnrl received sink's he was killed in nctlun on .luly Clh, 1943. "Some time later I saw my husband. He was as shocked as I was about Ihe death of our only son and my two brothers. Hut lie was all llio more determined lo fighl on. "I remember seeing him off. It was at a submarine base in Florida. Al two in tho morning. There was a light mist over the hurbor. I kissed my husband and he went aboard his PT boal. I watched him as long as I could sec him waving good-bye. "It wasn't many weeks later that I opened a final nic&agc: Deeply regret lo inform you jour husband, William Jennings Bryan Conner was killed in nction in performance of Ills duty and In Ihc service of his country. "I am not asking for pity. Not even sympathy. My men died the way Ihcy would have liked lo die —fighting. We must carry on their fight. "I won't be. meeting my boy or my husband or my brothers again, bill 1 wanl to sec to il that oilier women get Iheir men back. "The last thing my husband wrote me was: 'Keep np the, good work at the bomber plant.' That's whal I am doing . .. welding and rivcling. And I'm going lo keep on doing il as long as I can sland on my Iwo feel. I am going to stay at my job. I am going 10 buy War Bonds. I'm not licked and I never will be. I'm going to live to sec thai day— 1 that great day—when our enemies arc made lo pay in full for llie lives Ihcy have token away from all of us." Thai is Helen Conner's story. Her Iragedy is made public here only because il makes Ihis fact crystal-clear: a war can be won only by sacrifice. Buying War Bonds may call for sacrifice on our part. Hul when our sacrifice is compared to lhal of 1 Iclcn Conner or her men, doesn't il make you feel that putting every laslccnl inlo War Bonds is really little enough to do?
