That the United States of America eventually pays all that is owing although it may take many years and lots of red tape and the employment of many high .salaried clerks in Washington, Was affirmed the other day when a colored Ojllowfclowti in Texas collected a bill for water melons'. The United States senate after a lengthy hearing at last arrived at the conclusion that Rastus /Davis, th'.> man in question, was entitled to $100 iii payment for watermelons consumed by United States soldiers last July. Soldiers stationed near Wlnona, Texas, at Camp Fannin military reservation, had for some time cast a longing eye at the fat melons ripening in the warm sun of Texas. So one'night in the dark of the moon they sallied forth and captured 300 of the luscious melons and ate, them before leaving the -patch. Next morning when Rastus discovered a well beaten track from the melon patch leading to Camp Fannin, he demanded redress from the government at Washington, and now after six months of careful review of all of the facts the senators have allowed the claim and after going to the house of representatives and being ok'd by that body, it will go to President Truman for his signature and will perhaps become a law and the darky will get his money if he isn't dead by that time. You know thut saying about "the mills of the Gods" and how slow but sure they operate. We hope that Rastus is still a young man. President Trumart has ht last flatly ebmt?*otit for the merger of the high commafvd of the army ant' navy. An overall authority governing a coordinated military might on land, sen and in the air>eerns obyjou's. There is no reason to bel'leve that it would diminish one unit as against another; it might simply provide the coordinator that is absolutely necessary in anything—and especially 1 War. • . . If nnolhcr Wai- comes, and let us pray to Ciort. .that il never does—it will be no such w'nr-'ns thfe last one, or the one before thft't. It Will be a sei6'h-fj», lific war, with machines of death on laM, sea. tttvcf-' sky guided by remote control.. The chief problem Is going to be unification of effort from all branches of service to deliver Die blows first, if we have to; w'c wlfl not have time trf spend t\vo years getting ready after .the war begins, like wo did in the last one. We will not have lime to weed out Inlet-service .friction. The merger sounds like horse.sense, unless it is sabotaged by warring factions from within. —n. t n. w. ' General Patton. General Palton was a warrior's man! He may have said the wrong things, or allowed his own tempestuous spirit to get him in wrong, but he was n fighler and a leader. When the chips are down, nnd wars musl be won, it is such men as Paltnn who sot the' job clone—come hell or high water. Patton kept his men dressed; Ihoy griped, l.'ul they were soldiers. Pillion hud ideas and expressed Ihem. His viewpoint wtis essentially thai of a military warrior, not a politician or a diplomat. But he knew how to strike with daring'thai shattered (he opposing forces. Patton's unfortunate slapping episode received fur more- publicity than some of his basic rnll- iUiry maneuvers that hit the Germans so hard that Ihuy lost France in a few weeks. When the leadership of the recent war is tubulated, Patton will be found on the first tgam, —R. R.

Humboldl Itepublican: in accepting the fifty-year loan of $4,400,000,000 the British parliament stated that its payment depended on the at- tuide of the United States, and if this country favored Britain with sufficient trade at British prices, it is probable that the loan could be met Otherwise it could not be met. This statement was made after the loan had been negotiated. It is a peculiar method of reasoning, but one that IK adopted by international diplomacy as it is •practiced among the older nations of the world There is no doubt that Britain needs the m " ney : K Also .
