"It is rather startling suddenly to realize," writes Mr. Gardner, "that even under our absent voters' law as it is at present, it would be possible, with all energy and co-operation diverted in that direction, for the greater number of our 335,000 men in service to cast their ballots in 1944. Mark well that we said it might be POSSIBLE, not PRACTICAL or PROBABLE. It might be possible if our army and navy put aside the far more important work of waging war, to assign planes, men, trucks and time to getting applications for ballots back to the home front, and ballots to and from the war fronts. Of course, no one expects this interference with the great task now ahead of our war leaders. We simply dwell on the possibility because it shows the great age in which we are living--the possibilities in transportation and communication of which we are now only drinking the first draughts. "Let us suppose that out on the fronts our fighters make applications so that 20 days before election these roll homeward. Aboard special planes they could be carried here, the ballots forwarded, marked and returned to the ballot boxes because of the marvelous speed which is now attained in the air. Keeping 20 days in mind mark the flying time to these distant places. From New York to-"Canal Zone--9 hours, 12 minutes. "Fairbanks, Alaska--73 hours. "London--13 hours, 48 minutes.
