S. IVar Minions, Hitler is a I'ilwr in kind of who is boss It is about lime llinl someone iiulhority showed Hie Unilcd Sli War Dcpaiiinenl jnsl what country ttiis is and just in it. The War, whic-h is supposed lo lie the strong arm thai protects the republic, is now disclosed to have prepared the blueprints for n dictatorship in this country; a dictatorship as ruthless and oppressive as any of the overseas varieties. This sounds almost incredible. The truth of it is revealed in the series of bills reportedly prepared by the \\ F i|i- Department lo be introduced and rushed Hhroti(rh Congress upon the outbreak of hostilities. All these bills, however, have been inlrodueed by Spn- ator Bennett Clark (Mo.) of the senate munitions committee. Clark has no desire that these bills be passed. He merely wauls Congress and Ihc country to know what Ihe War Department had in slorc for us. Tlms-e bills would provide that in time of war the entire, country would go under absolute military control. The president would declare an emergency and, as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, would instantly take over the whole country. The press would go under censorship. All men over 1.8 would -be drafted. The right of habeas' corpus and • the right to jury trial would be "•' suspemfed:"~'rhe president could sei/.e " any property that he saw fit, at any price he chose. The manufacture, sale, transportation, and distribution of all foodstuffs and commodities would be licensee!. > If you have caught your breath aL'ler reading I hat amazing outline, yon arc invited to rcali/.e that these powers • would exist for six months after (he president declared Ihe emergency at an end — .iiiul lie need not even issue that declaration until he felt like it. That our War Department, should sponsor a bill so completely in violation of every tradition of American freedom is almost unbelievable. Think, for a minute, what its consequences would be. Every bit' of property in the Unilcd Stales could he confiscated for any purpose the president might think good. Every working man in Ihe country could be compelled to work any number of hours, under any con- ditions, at, any wage, in any factory, that the president mii*hl decide. Any man who balked at any of these provisions would he tried—-not by a civil court, but by an army courl- 'marlial. Neither lliller nor Mussolini ever thought of anything much more drastic than that. It may possibly he, as the War Department claims, that rcgimentalion of this kind is essential lo winning a war. If thut is thu case, it is up to this country to adopt Ihe most uncompromising kind of pacifism, ipr there is no conflict on Ihe horizon the winning of which would bu worth what this War Department plan would cost. But it is far more likely that some mililjtrislie functionaries have simply gone slightly screwy. The best tiling Congress can do is to take up these bills, dcbale them, vole them down overwhelmingly and demonstrate that Ihe people of this country just aren't having any. After such a demonstration, the militarists might have difficulty in jamming them through upon the outbreak of war. At any event, Ihe nation will be well warned. The War Department might as well know right now that the American people don't want a dictatorship at any price. 1 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark ADVENTURE by Jean Seivwright © 1936 N£A Service, Inc.

The fragrant smoke announced the arrival of the president, and with Cal Travers' appearance fireworks always started,. "Well," lie boomed, when he en^ lercd the manager's office, )in- hcraldcd except for the perfume of his cigar, "have you got that Everett properly yet?" 'No!
