FDR Fight \VithLindy 13 Years Old By LYLE C. WILSON WASHINGTON (UP)-It will be 13 years this spring since Franklin p. Roosevelt all but called Charles A. Lindbergh a traitor and sent news conference reporters to the reference books for the Civil War story ol Copperhead C. L, Vallandingham. -FDR's Mast took Lindbergh out of the Air Force Reserve by resignation of his colonel's commission which was' Accepted immediately and minus comment. Lindbergh had been a reserve colonel since 1927 when he won a hero's acclaim by the first nonstop flight'across the Atlantic. The hero's fall from official grace was more spectacular than sudden. It began a year or more prior to the resignation when Lindbergh filigned himself with the America First Committee which opposed lend-leasc and other aid to Great Britain against, G e r m n n y on grounds that it inevitably would draw the United States into a war. Big Ht»dllnt* ' Lindbergh's , speeches made big headlines as he argued for a negotiated pence in Europe. "I believe," he said in January 1941, "that complete'victory by cither side would'result in prostration of Europe such as we never before have seen." He contended the war already was lost and on April 23, 1941, had this to cay; "The British have one, last, desperate plan remaining: They hope that they may be able to persuade us to end another American expeditionary force to Europe, to share with Knaland militarily, as well as financially, the fiasco of war." Without naming him, the President unmistakably likened the.air- man to the V a l l a n d i n g h n m s of the Civil War. C. L. V a l l a n d i n g h a m of Ohio was chief spokesman of the Copperheads, war time Democrats who sought a Civil War negotiated peace. Their activities were widely regarded at the time as treasonable. Resigns Commission Three days later Lindbergh resigned his commission, lie said he I had no alternative since his loyal- ty, character and motives had been] questioned. By June the late Har-j old L. Ickes of Mr/ Roosevelt's cabinet was calling Lindbergh a "fiitlcr stooge" and his supporters'' "nazi wolves in pacifists' cloth-' ing." Lindbergh was striking back with warnings that "the war par- ly" was scheming to produce incidents which "would gel us into the war in the guise of defending America." The feud · stopped dead on Dec. 7, 1941. Lindbergh announced the next day that he supported the war. On Dec. 30, he volunteered for active Air Corps service. Two weeks later the War Department announced Lindbergh would do civilian research for the Air Corps. He's done many a civilian job since. Monday, President Eisenhower nominated Lindbergh to be a brigadier general in the Air Force lie- serves. The nomination awaits Senate action.
