The OW1 director is fully qualified by experience. The trouble is that by reason of his present job and his intense interest in doing it well, Wr. Davis seems lo have laid .aside thai objectivity which was one of his great ^irtues when he was on .the, news gath- -Vihg side of the fence. 'Th'e"-Information Director's 1 chief c'ojnplaint appears to be that correspondents overemphasize "the impression that Washington is necessarily a muddle of bickering and confusion," and underplay the genuine achieve- .ments of the capital. Summaries of his speech before the American Newspaper Guild in Boston indicate Unit he attributes the alleged superfluity of criticism to partisanship. ' We think that if'Mr. Davis were in .position to emulate Harun-al-Rashid, who,as we remember used to circulate incognito amongst his constituency to learn what they really were thinking, he wb'uld find that some of the bitterest criticism of the Washington bureaucracy comes from men who would burn in boiling oil rather than have the world suppose^ that their fourth ^cousins ever, voted anything except Uic. •Democratic/ticket—straight. r •'.-. * * * Moreover," we think that, ho would find that these critics do not ^conceive '/of every employe on the federal pay- ro'H' as a bureaucrat, but use the'epi- thet to cover that small but powerful minority that has lo brush red tape out of its eyes to see whether it is lime to transfer the daily nap-from office-to name. / It is silly to charge Elmer Davis with base motives. The criticisms he voiced were bis sincere opinions of what would be best .for the country. But that does not make those particular^opinions any more valid. The story of America's war achievements is blazoned across the pages of most newspapers every day. Mr! Davis, like the rest of us, reads the headlines of achievement stories and .every last 'word of the criticism.' He is very close to the administration picture. We believe he has lost, a little, his perspective. Otherwise he would Ijc among the last to say what he is reported to have said in Boston. wrong track. In World War I we gave them absolution in return for their overthrowing the kaiser, and .in less than five years'they were preparing for World War 11. For Germany and for Japan there can be only oiie p ultimatum—unconditional surrender, and for any postwar mercy thank our discretion, not our pity. • "Winning the war' will take longer that way, and will cost more in lives and treasure. But it will be genuine victory,'which might last for a while, and not the uneasy armistice that Versailles produced. Six. to One, The six to one ratio which our bombing missions have hung up against NJI/J planes over the Reich, is gratifying evidence both of the lire-power of the planes and the skill and courage of the crews. Hut in casting up the material score we must have in mind that this still is not fair exchange. We are losing Flying Fortresses and Liberators; we arc destroying smaller machines. When one of our planes falls we can expect to lose eight men; the Germans often save the one man in theirs. The exchange favors us only because we can afford it for the sake of the enormous damage the bombers do before they arc lost. /dees Capitulates To Ickes Petroleum Administrator Harold I.. Ickes has won a soul-trying victory over Secretary Harold I,. Ickes of the Department of Interior. As Publicist Harold L. Ickes well says, commenting upon the situation, "it is news of the same type as 'man bites dog.' " Responding patriotically to the request of Petroleum Administrator Ickes, Secretary Ickes is asking the public to slay away from the national parks to save gasoline and tires. And Publicist Ickes points out that Solid Fuels Administrator Harold L. Ickes'also concurs, because train travel' would use 'up coal.
