The Nazi spirit isn't dead. We must not let our vigilance and strength expire. Going His Way Douglas . Corrigan, the famous wronr-vray flyeV of 1938, in going to run for the IT. S. Senate in California on the Prohibition ticket. Perhaps Mr. Corrigan has been watching the postwar drift of international relations and has decided that the world at last in going in his direction. As the General Sees It Pointless Request Congressman Frank Keefe of Wisconsin wants the Pearl Harbor inquiry reo)>ened so he can ask General Mar, shall and Admiral Stark whether, in the light of former War Secretary Stimson's memoirs, they might not have been at a White House conference on the night of Dec. G, 19-11. Mr. Keefe suggests that the memoirs may help to "refresh the memories of the gen* oral and the admiral. This request seems not only unflattering to the officers in question, but a little pointless as well. For Mr. Stimson's recollections tend to confirm what was brought out in the congressional Pearl Harbor hearings—that, after ail is said and done, the Japs were chiefly responsible for the Pearl Hdrbor disaster, in that they cdught us flat-footed with an attack in an unexpected quarter. SO THEY SAY O Tempora Prof. C. Herman Pritchett's moat recent analysis of Supreme Court cte- .cfsfons brings the rather startling revelation that even that august body is not imprevious to time, and inner ohange. Specifically, Professor Pritehett informs us that Justice Felix Frankfurter is now one of u conservative minority of three on the highest tribunal. That's right—a conservative minority. . further Proof The roundup in Germany of the sizeable cell of a new Nazi movement .re-emphasises the need for a strong American force in our occupation zone. It ought to convince Congress, if further convincing is necessary, that the" draft will have to be extended if enlistments continue to fail—as they are failing now—to bring Army strength to the point which military leaders say it requires. The more we weaken our force in Germany, the boffier the defeated Nationalistic differences have not divided the tribunal. So far not one judge lias noted public dissent to any decision.—Supreme Court Justice Robert K. Jackson, chief Nuernberg prosecutor.

We need toiunderstand what it means to feel defeated. The French people feel more defeated today than th« Germans do. The rest of the world Is hungry and terribly cold.

TT took three days to complete Susie's wardrobe, and get her hair licked into shape with an expensive haircut and permanent wave. Ann regarded the finished product proudly. Susie still 1 wasn't pretty—nothing on earth i could give beauty to Susie's imp- jish features—but she hod personality, which was infinitely better. And ihere was something very arresting about Ihe child, with a smart hairdress and eood-looking clothes. "You'll do us credit, Susie," she informed her warmly. Now after parking the car in the driveway, they made several trips to the house, taking all the ; packages into Susie's room. Then Ann left her to her unpacking, and murmured something about going for a walk. She exchanged -.: b v r coal for a suede jacket, and, the sun warm on her bare head, ., started up the road toward the Home. There was a big orchard ~- behind t';:<; house, where Ann loved to go to think. She wanted to do some heavy thinking, and luxuriate in a new idea. She newcomer was almost upon her. Then she sat up, and smoothed her disheveled hair instinctively, for this was such a very neat lady. She decided lo forget her resentment at being intruded upon, and be friendly. "Hullo," she said, "You're new in. town r aren't you? I'm Ann Drake — Mrs. Colin Drake." She eyed her appraisingly. She was a rather lovely lady—authentic silver hair, beautifully arrahfed, small, clearry- chiseled features, milk-nnd-roses skin, and large bright blue eyes. "The simple arrogance with which one says that in Port Drake! I know, my dear, from experience. I'm MQIicent Roberts." TyriLUCENT was looking at Ann in frank appraisal. "You're not at all what I expected, Ann. You don't mind my calling you Ann, do you? I actually can't tall you Mrs. Drake! I'd expected you to be—forgive me— a rather giddy girl, that Colin should have adopted rather than married." Ann grimaced. "You must have jbeen talking to dear Beulah.

(NBA) —No two speeches were ever far- ter apart than President Truman's Army Day address in CJhi- cagn and Gen, Douglas MacArthur's opening statement before the Allied Council for Japan In Tokyo the day before. You will find _thc girts of the conflict In these two condensed quotations—and they're something to paste in the hat: * • PRESIDENT TRUMAN — 'jWe must remain strong because . only so'Iong as we remain strong'can we ensure the peace of the world. Peace has to be built on power for good. Justice and good will and good deeds are not enough. "We cannot one day proclaim our intention to prevent unjust aggression and opposition in the world and 011 the next day call for hn- ' mediate scrapping of our military might. "It Is no answer to aaf that we do not need a large army in the atomic age. No one knows yet precisely what we shall need—in terms of infantry, artillery, pilots, paratroopers, ships, radar, planes, rockets or bombs." It takes General MacArthur a Jew more words to speak his piece, but it you wade through his long paragraphs and involved sentences you come up with these points: GENERAL MacABTHUR — "The United Nations Organization, admirable as is its purpose, great and noble as are its aims, can only survive...if It.. .abollshces) war as a sovereign right. Such a renunciation must be simultaneous and ^. Ls idealistic, . visionary . nonsense. But Ls it?

Gregory Rat- 'f gave her the name ol Lily orwood for her film debut in Something to Shout About." M-G/I changed it to Cyd Charisse. O "TYPINO" COMPLAINT One of our favorite people, Franes Clifford, finally has been typed -and she loves it. After playing ne ''other woman" for years, Franes has had a succession of mod- rn American girl roles at M-G-M —and her stock and fan mail are oaring. Frances is still taking bows foi night she saw * chance to make a "grand entrance" at a party. Some photographers were sland-i ' Ing around at the bottom of 'i long staircase. Frances, tiii done up in a fancy fur coat, floated down tbe stiirs, nodding to frleflds en route, tripled on photographer Hymie pink's ll foot, and fell Hat on her face. ' "I was so confused," re Frances, "that after picking myself up,, all I could-thinks to say was 'Hello, Hymle.' Then ; ran off and cried." .* AX 14 IN THE SADWJE Riding back to the screen a two-year abeeiwe, Hopalong Cis- sldy—otherwise known-as Bill-Boyd —took a couple of cracks todaj at Hollywood's western heroes. Sai«J Bill: 'Tin not in the picture business— I miike westerns. I don't wear cowboy clothes off the screen for the same reason that bellhops don't wear their costumes when they go out to dinner.

MacARTHUR SEES NO PERMANENT SOLUTION IN ARMS . "The present instrumentality to enforce its will—the pooled armed might of its component nations— can at best be but a temporary expedient so long as nations still rccognze as co-existent, the sovereign right of belligerency. No thoughtful man will fail to recognize that with the development of modern science another war maj* blast mankind to perdition—but still we hesitate—still we cannot, despite the yawning abyss at our feet, unshackle ourselves from the past. "Therein lies the childlike faith in the future—a faith that, as in he past, the world can somehow survive yet another universal cOM- Uct. In that irresponsible faith lies- civilization's gravest peril." In dcfcn.<^ of the Truman philosophy, it may be said to be utterly hard-boiled and realistic. After World War I the United States put its faith in disarmament. Even Soviet Russia, through Maxim Ltt- vinov, mnde an appeal at the League or Nations for world disarmament and renunciation of war. As the world well knows, these policies did not work. Disarming the peace-loving nations only gave the aggressors a better chance do their dirty work. The Umtec States was forced into a second foreign war. Soviet Russia was oc tually invaded. Small wonder there Is strong fetling In both countries that the peaceful wav won't work TUN CHARTER INFERS WAR TS INEVITABLE The fear that the peaceful way won't work haunted every tlelega lion at San Francisco to write charter for the United Nations. That Is why you find no strong language on the renunciation ot war In the charier finally adopted. To all practical purposes, the UN charter recognizes that war is here, and the Inference Is that It's here to stay.Truman's Army Day speech •acks It up.
