Musico Politics Time was "when a man scarcely dnred run for president -unless he'd been bom in a log cabin. The homy hand of toil was good for an extra parcel of votes, and addiction to such rough masculine habits as chnwin 1 tobacco or eating with the-knife were positive assets in the frontier regions. But that time is long since depai't- ed. Instead, the rcugh-and-lumble of the quadrennial election is beginning to show some esthetic symptoms. In fact, 1944 may-go down in our history ( as the year in which culture and poli- > tics joined hands, and music really came into its own; There is ample evidence to back this assertion. Scarcely had the cheers from the Democratic convention died • down when the papers came out with a picture of vice presidential candidate Harry Truman seated at the piano. ; Next day the Republicans countered with a photograph of Mrs. Thomas E. Dewey at the keyboard. Now these were no "they laughed , when I sat down at the piano" pictures. Both perfoimers looked competent: and at ease. Mrs. Dewey, as you probably know, was a singer who appeared professionally in musical stage productions. She probably plays the piano «s well as most singers (which, generally speaking, is a darned sight better than most pianists sing.) And this talent, coupled 'with her husband's well-known musical attainments, would seem to put the Republicans' ah'ead in the huiKico-politi- cal field. Who knows, perhaps the deciding factor in the Democrats' choice of Mr. •Roosevelt's running mate was the fact '.that Senator Truman was the only pros- poet who could slug it out, nole for note, with,the Deweys, For the President, though reputedly a better than passable tenor in an impromptu quartet, has been getting elected to political offices for years without raising has voice in song. But.that doesn't mean that a largo 'part of his popularity isn't vocal. Through three terms in office his fireside chats have won him a following of unprecedented enthusiasm. He is, we might respectfully suggest, a sort of Sinatra of the spoken word. ]f anybody can beat him, it will probably have to be a singer. , ihh wtamn at edJlorUU bom i <««, M| ^oe^nj, m •doneintnt M h M wtaowlricaent ct Churchill to!d commons yesterday that European victory "may perhaps come soon." That Is a half-truth. It needs to be supplemented by the imperative quallficallon used by Generals Elsenhower and Someweil, Secretary ot War StJnwon nnd other high American oHlclals-that victory can come thta ye»r in Europe only If we work much harder and fight much horded than hitherto. By "soon," Churchill did not mean "In a Jew few weeks.' Not nl oil. For he discussed Allied military operations In Italy next "autumn," an Increase (n British imvpl strength 1J1 Asiatic waters "by the end of tne year." He was unwilling to predict a speedy Internal collapse of Germany. "I fear greatly the raising o f false hopes," lie said. Of course the reason Oen. Elsenhower nnd others can talk of European victory in 1944 If we go all out Is Ihc remarkable Russian summer offensive and the Initial success ol the Invasion of France. Bill Generals Eisenhower and Bradley arc begging for more heavy srtmery, ammunition nnd trucks, without which Ihey cannot win "soon" and without which Ihey must fincriflee many Allied soldiers needlessly. On every front, Allied commanders ore colling for more landing croft. Gen. Somervell, speaking only a few hours before Churchill, said that to meet the demands of our franl comimnders we must Increase pio- duclion in the second half of this year over the first half ns follows: Heavy artillery, 45 per cent; trucks, 6G' per cent; bulldozers, 141 per cent; cranes 208 per cent. The faster the Allied offensives move, making possible a sooner victory, the greater the expenditure of equipment and the vastly In-crensed need for more. According to Gen. Somervcll, and our highest Army, Navy ana production ofllclnls, shortages Ihresten la slow doyn the present rate of our offensives—shortages In 320 vllnl categories, In 00 of which we have less than W percent of minimum requirements fixed by front commanders. Our commanders expect European victory wllhin a few months if we don't let them down. But Ihts Is n big "If". For we are now Calling them, as the production figures show. The Allied fighting forces—with all their amazing heroism nnd skill—can win only as soon as Hie American nnd British civilian fronts give Diem the full weapons of victory, now lacking.
