Enlistments Curtailed Congress has passed a series of cx- cc'ediiigly generous bills which make the American enlisted man uiique.s- tionably the best-paid, best-clothed, best-housed, and best-cared-fov soldier in history. Government officials have pleaded for volunteers on the basis of natibriaj need and of personal advantage. The press and the radio have skillfully beaten the drums for enlistments. Unsettled and uncomfortable conditions in civilian America have provided a very real incentive. Yet enlistments have not come, and are not now coming, in anything approaching the required proportion. There must, of course, be a reason. The current Lichfield, England, Army court-martial revelation perhaps provides, a good idea as to just what that reason is. It gives flesh-and-blood renl- ity to the "caste system," which former enlisted men repeatedly cite as the cause- for their nauseous reaction to nil thing's military. An Army captain has resigned as assistant prosecutor of the Lichfield trial, charging that the case has been "flagrantly mishandled" in an apparently deliberate attempt to acquit high- ranking officers while convicting enlisted men and junior officers. The case itself is most interesting— and enlightening. The defendants stand . accused.of participating in a concerted policy .of ^brutally mistreating American prisoners ^confined at the Lichfield Reinforcement Depot. 'i'i'This stor^us neither new'nor pux- zHiig'to discharged soldiers. Rightly or wrongly, they emerged from wartime service with an impression that extralegal protection is a cherished privilege .ofc-officers. And, having seen rough £realo)ent of GI prisoners the accepted iJcacficdVat-many Army posts, they feel .£Jiat;.ihsCl4chfieId guardhouse procedure as';in no sense revolutionary, s-a; revelation, and a practice, may''well be brought to the at- t'"einiy of Gen. ' Dwight D. owQ'r, Jaiif .also of the vigorously fflbJMzecT5j6]ard' ; <jf former officers and •%rhMerV-rn'en~hb\v' concerning itself with •suggestions for "democratization" of •(.he Army. For the United States does desperately need a large Army at present. It can reasonably expect ils youth to sacrifice personal comfort and convenience—yes, even personal safety—in order to implement the national gains so recently purchased, with blood and tears, on the battlefields of the world. But it cannot expect young men brought up in (lie American heritage of equality before the law and of protection for the rights of even Ihc most burdened cviminul voluntarily to surrender that heritage by enlisting in a military organization which guarantees them neither. Opportunist View* of GtltetA te VUm trtan •! KlHlrMi I Help for Crippled Children You [ire likely soon lo get. if you haven't nlrcnily received It, n letter from tlio Arkansas Association for the Crippled. The letter will ask you lo buy the dollar's worth or more of Easier Seals enclosed. You could hardly .spend a dollar to better purpose. Koi with the money thus obtiilncd, tho iifsoclollon is doing n splendid Christ Iftn work lor our physically handicapped children. It U bringing Into their lives a springtime, an Easier, of hope by giving them n better chance in life. The ns.socialton lins no other funds than the money it eels from these Buster Seals. It Is stretching llicso dollars over .1 far-rcnchliii? scivice. Every dollar Invested In the seals becomes a dcllur of kindness and mercy, devoted to the cause of ••helping others to help themselves." The war showed that our handicapped people arc ambitions, and that many ot them have natural skills. Tlicy went into war plants, and performed vital tasks. Their fine war record did much to advance,.tlic program lor wider alii to crippled children. It proved Ihnt. aside from the Immune considerations, (here is ability in these little unfortunates well worth siwiny. They have a right to as normal a life as can be. opened lo them. A dollar spent foi that purpose isn't a charily dollar. It's a dollar invested In one of Ihe greatest enlcrprlscs in the world— restoring hnndiciippcd lives lo usefulness and happiness. Every such life enriches the community. And yon never know where this work of • mercy will touch and inspire genius. Many of ,the world's greatest figures have hud some pliy- •' sical Impairment. Among them were blind Mil's ton. the poet; Slemmcts; the electrical wizard, n hunchback; Robert Louis Stevenson, who "wrote like an angel'\ and whoso life was dogged by tuberculosis; and the laic President Hooscvcll, crippled by infantile paralysis--just to mention a lew. There may huvc been many more such potential geniuses who lacked the fire to overcome Ihcir handicaps without help. All crippled children, though their lives may be the humblest, licvo n claim on us. Let's not forget these little people, when a dollnr for Easter Seals will help lo do so much for them. ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. * IN HOLLYWOOD;: KV liKKKINF.

This will be Ihe fifth lime in Ihe last four years that price control legislation h[\s been up for renewal. In 1041 no one could have predicated that it would be us successful as it has been. In Ihe war years, Ihc legislation came i through its various renewals without too much change. But Ihis lime, wilh the war all over, lire heat is on so lo amend the law that it won't be recognizable. Bowles confessed frankly to die •retailers that he, like everyone else, is fed up on price control. It's no un. No one in OPA is there by hoice, and (he whole slaff is anxious to get out of the business s anyone else. And yet, he. said, Ihe big hurdle at the end of the race the difficult period ahead, which s an added challenge. INFLATION I.ED TO COLLAPSE AFTER WORLD WAR I For au understanding of that challenge, Howies asked his lislen- crs lo go back and read what happened after the lasl war. Right after Armistice Day. 191B. when prices and XVBKOS Roth advanced over 100 per cent, the experts in ROV- ernmcnt and business decided that the country had had its wartime inflation and it was all over. So they look off what few controls there were and gave the economy a free reign. Business took an low on inventories, and it.s reserves were wiped out. Prolils thai had j been Sti.ono.flfln.OCO in 191fl turned j to $5.000.000.000 losses in 1!>20. Farm prices dropped 45 per cent. Them \ver c 250.00 farm foreclosures and i 166.000 bankruptcies. Payrolls went : clown 55 ncr cent. j OP.VS FUTURE PROGRAM I S OUTLINED Bowles outlined what he thought OPA's policies should he if Con- press passed the nece-ssary lecisln- ion and appropriated the ncces- arv budgets to do OPA's job. He declared il would be lolicy not lo let prices io expect thai people would look over the record and decide they'd better take over nnd run things themselves .The result would be thai free enterprise and free economy would disappear.
