He sounded off or. llic "caste system" in a recent mag.i- xine firliclc.

IIoldrid(;e, McCarthy and LaFol- eUu are not members of the Doo- Httle board. ell's in a recent, public opinion imvey favored raising Army pay, more democracy, more advnncemc'iit sppoi'Umity and higher family allowances. Civilians thought the GI should have more educational facilities, longer furloughs and belter housing for his family. War Department officials are reported studying a proposal to discard the traditional Army promotional system based on seniority and set up a new standard based on merit. .The Army hiijli command is open to suggestions, but It contended thai, the American GI was the best, treated soldier of America or anv othcv nation in history. Arguments for retention of the present system are: 1. Russia abolished discipline')' control of officers over enlisted men. almost lost a war with little Finland and then restored officer powers before battling Germany. 2. If we expect officers 'to take the responsibility of leadership in time of national danger, officers must have some advantages as incentives. :t. There have been some bad onicers. but they are a minority. 4. nclationships between officers nnd men in the last war were more sympathetic than in World War I 5. The GI of World War II re- jceived the best medical treatment obtainable, the best pay of any enlisted man in history and his family received the best allowances of those of any nation. C. The recreational and entertainment facilities for the GI in the last war were the best on record. ~. The casualties among offlc^-.-s in World War II were proportionately heavier than casualties anionp enlisted men. Dr. Anderson Accepts Post At University FAYETTEVrU.H, Ark,. Mar. 25.-Dr. John I".
