So a couple 61' parlies thrown by American newspaper people take on a significance -thai probably never occurred, to their planners.

Such parties are, praise be, neither novel nor unusual in America. They are just part of a good old custom of engaging in a general shirt unstiUTing every so often. American editors give readers the news and grouch or glory as Ihey please-in their editorial columns. The people who work for those editors answer to no one but (heir bosses, and outside the office they deport themselves just about as they, please. Now there is no justice in picking on the Nazis as far as ordinary censorship of the news goes—America I* about Die only place where people can still read news as if happened. But the German government, by7 operating its press as in war-time, leaves itself wide open as the bust (or worst) example of'suppression. Some of the recent "news" to which the German people have been treated, included these pronouncements: Everything is' paisy-walsy between the old-line army chiefs and Herr Hitler, the military shakeiip coming merely as ihc result of an epidemic of bad health among the deposed chiefs. Sympathetic Britishor.s ousted Anthony Eden as foreign secretary because he led a' Popular Front agitation for, war' on Germany and Italy.

But the payoil came when Alfred Ingemar Berndf, assistant press chief of the Kcieh, announced 'that it-WHS an insult to the German government for a citizen too doubt what he reads in the papers. So if it gets about that some jolly old Herr Schmaltz chuckled over an account of the historical greatness of the Kuehrer, then the Gestapo —the secret police—will visit Herr Schmalt'/, anil make things very uncomfortable for him indeed In light of these facts, you might, (he next lime yon haven't anything more aimless to do, try to imagine the reporters' and copyroader.s on Dor Aiigrill', official Nazi organ, throwing a big parly at which they panned JJerr 'Miller and his cohorts quite somewhat—and in the presence of The Great Man himself!
