As regards employment, the lust three years have been great times for industry's old-timers. Many older workers have been kept on beyond normal retirement fge. Others have returned from retire, -»nl to fill up the ranks of labor siul, incidentally, replenish their incomes. v Their help and know-how has been valuable, as the experience of the Winchester arms people proves. Eight months before Pearl Harbor the Winchester' executives saw what was coiii- ing and called in their 700 employes of 25 or'more years' experience. They ask- ex}" these veterans to do a double task sfAyJop their regular jobs and also help train new workers. • •' The veterans responded, formed into ah' organization, and proceeded to pass ajofig. their wisdom to the newcqiriers who/jumped the Winchester payroll 400 per cent in 18 months. , ',.'."1 honestly believe," said the'Win- chester works manager, "that thousands of American troops wouldn't, have had Gavarid rifles and Winchester car- femes,except for our 25-Year Service Association. It's been the quarter-century 'boys and girls in, our plant, aiicl I suppose in every big plant, that have armed the United'Nations." ^•"That's fine. But what's in .store for tnese voldsters in the future'.' In his "Piactical Psychology," Dr. F. Xo.nneth Berrien' of Colgate University argues "the wisdom of salvaging rather than shelving seniles." He points to the'anal- ogy of the athletic conch who, unable to • , •}'/ can profitably pass along his skill to others. He suggests advisory "exit jobs" to ease the employe's adjustment tjrretirement, and to avoid a company's loss of his accumulated experience. i' These are sensible suggestions. And certainly government, business, the arts and the professions offer repeated proof that usefulness does not eiul «(. 60 or 65. But-to broaden the example of this proof- to include the wage onrner in .the future-will require,the full employment of today's most optimistic predictions. ~* • * * • A— l , Nobody wants to se? a repetition of the absmd and tragic notion that a man of 40'is "too old" to get work.

The Encyclopedia Britlanica says he may have been an Englishman, an Irishman, « Virginian or « South Carolinian. But one thing is certain. The practice,of lynching is older than Lynch.

War III.- This is the siory o/ Germany's plans to win the peace, plans that, even now are being put into effect. T ONG before the Second World •^ War could be finished; 1 when in fact it had only rer.lly begun, another war was launched in Berlin, H was not , declared, noi would it ever be, for this was a secret war, a war within a war. The men and women who flglil it are both soldiers and civilians They take their orders from military and civilian leaders of daring and vision, with wide knowledge of human beings and Ihe world, and an ntlcr eonlempl foi anything that docs not serve their common cause—German world supremacy. These leaders includi military experts, heads of indus try and business, scientists, artists influential clergymen, women professors, and key men in for eign countries. They wear no dis tinyuishing uniform, use no lape buttons or mystic handclasps fo identification, but they are in escapably bound together by the! community of purpose. As mem bcrs die, or become useless, members are added. It is an efli cicnt body. It should be, for : has been working together to per feet its strategy since Augns 1U18, when General Ludcndor gathered the original conspirator together lo save the Germa army. Since Ihen its membership ha quietly directed the creation world-encompassing political ; financial structures, It knows tha the lethal power of the new weapons is confirming the rest of the world in a horrified determination lo outlaw war. It plans to exploit our hunger after peace for its own ends. * t t IE new secret war dales from October of 1940. I was then correspondent in chief for Central Europe of a big morning paper of my native Chicago, and the Berlin commentator for an American broadcasting' system'. I had many old friends and confidential contacts among the German underground. As soon as the secret orders were issued, they saw to it that I was quietly informed. During that period, one of my most trusted informants arrived many hours late for our appointment. He had that evening survived his third Gestapo-contrived automobile,,'accident - within a ivcelc.' He told me of the summons sent out by Heinrich Himmler, chief of the Gestapo, to every agent who had worked in Austria Czechoslovakia, Holland, Denmark, and France. From them the most successful were lo be trained for new campaigns in new countries. Added to his information came other details, each fitting neatly into the jigsaw. 1 learnec o£ the school in'Garmisch-Parlen- Nazi propaganda found in an American bookstore in June, 19-12, six months after the United Stales had declared war on Germany. This is the sort of weapon with' which the Germans will continue to fight when they go underground for the coming "war-in'-pcace." kirclicn, which specialized in training agents lor Africa. Aside Jrom these there were the law professors, who had their orders to examine the old Chinese penal codes, to prepare a "scien- tiiic work to be used ;js a propaganda tool in Asia." Trusted Berlin lawyers, called into conference with llimmler, were requested to develop cases and business connections lor good alibis in traveling to still nenlnil countries; they were promised special plane transportation to Spain and South America. II they could find plausible excuses, they would be sent to Mexico and the United States. Insurance companies, moving trims, travel agencies, and artists' mreaus, which had already been iseful in Southeastern Europe, vorkcd out detailed reports on heir practical experience. These vcre submitted in turn to propaganda' experts in the liaison staff >f Rudolf. Hess, and to the foreign- ;ervice staff o£ Heinrich Himmler. Field Marshal von Branchltsch ordered his military espionage service to get ready to ."branch out Ueyond the countries assigned .o them," and to "report on political and economic possibilities." "Jrcat rivalry spurred on the three ;roups to write the report which would win Hitler's approval. There was no doubt about the importance of .these various memoranda—they were to guide picked experts in the/kind ot warfare in which the Germans excel: war- ia-peacp. TN the preceding June, the •*• ish had incredibly snE Brit- atched their trapped armies off the bloody beacli of Dtinkcrquc. The unexpected rescue disconcerted the Germans. But not as 7nuch as what followed. • For weeks the strategy officers of the German High Command the air and navy .experts of the general stafT, conferred on French soil along the Channel, plotting their course: their next invasion should give them England, the giant aircraft carrier from which Germany's planes would complete her conquest of the world. While they were polishing up their new blitz, British planes dared the long flight from London to Berlin lo bomb the German, capital. In the dense fog of a dark September night, fully manned barges of a trial German invasion fleet set out from France, destination England. Nearly all of them went * up in flames. i 1 The eradiation from Dun-" " kerque, the bombing o£ Berlin, he loss of their preliminary in- . r asion force—three blows in sue- ; ession at the army, the air force, • he navy—gave pause to the Ger. ! nan High Command. !
