Climax of the conference came Monday evening when UpD Legionnaires attended a banquet ad- iressecl by Warren H. Atherton lational commander. Referring to his visit to the Tu- lisian war front last year, the pmmander declared that" the , nited States is winning victories f( [ut not without paying a high l-lrice. |,' Britain and America, he =ai lf : aid 80,000 casualties for an ad- [·ance ol 50 miles from Sulcrno fieach.

Production on the home front must be stimulated. "We must give more for bonds more blood, more scrap and more hours." Criticism of Russia by Americans, he said, is only delaying victory "for no ally is big enough » lick Hitler alone." "Some have criticized Russia's terms to Finland," he declared "I read those terms. They are an almost exact copy of (he terms we wrote for Italy." Peace can only be maintained it agreements between nations are backed by force, the national commander stated. "The road to peace is the road to preparedness, a strong Uncle Sam, he declared. "That is the program advocated by the Legion for many years. By preparedness in the United States we can eel security in the world." Wounded, maimed or mentally handicapped service men must get the first claim on any rehabilitation funds this country is spending or will spend, Commander Atherton stated. k Commenting on some of the appropriations made fo.'help other countries after the war, Atherton said, "we should not spend a dollar abroad for such purposes until we have done all within our Power to bring solace and happiness and success to those for whom the war will never end." The commander said the American Legion faced the biggest job of its history and that it must be done successfully. "That means more rehabilitation and fewer smokers, more Americanism and fewer parades That means more child welfare and fewer banquets. That means more bonds bought, more blood given, more scrap collected, more civilian defense duty, more Bed hours, and fewer medals" he told the group. At a meeting of the Iowa de- jartment, Walter Travis of Wa- :ertown, S. Dak., recommended formation o f - l o c a l service corps 'to interpret the home town to ·etui-rung veterans and veterans to "the community." Travis, adjutant of the South lakota American Legion, said hat service men had idealized heir home towns and that both he liw-n and service men would benefit from "interpreters." "The only interpreters between, he 2 groups are men who have ought a war--and that is every Legionnaire," he declared. O. J.

DR.CA1DWELTS SENNA IAXAT1VE SYWJPPEPSDi Forms Plan to Readjust Servicemen By BEN GALLOB United Press Staff Correspondent ^Minneapolis, (U.R) _ The Pillsbury Flour Co., one of the largest milling concerns in (he nation meets the problem of the returning serviceman ,uy u sort of military indoctrination course in reverse. The basic idea is to convert the \var-chanjred serviceman back into a valuable civilian employe by rcversinc the crocess by which Uncle Sam made him a fighter. "The aim of the program was not merely to give its mustered- out employes a job," said President P. W. Pillsbury, "but to find a 3ob as close to the employe's former post as possible." lie said the program which his company initiated about 4 months ago was designed to readjust the individual to civilian work habifs and was based on meeting individual needs of the social employe and the kind of job he or she wants. The company, of course, refuses to discuss individual case histories,, but said that of 630 Jormer employes who went into military service, about 35 have been discharged and replaced on the payroll. The replacement followed an exhaustive individual surs-ey of the war-created changes in each employe's personality and work skills. As employes arc made available lo the company after discharge, they are assigned to the identical jobs they had when they entered service, unless there is a good reason to prevent it, such as chances in that particular phase of the company's operations. Records of special training and service experience, personal interviews and records of previous employment are all studied. With the experience of numerous trial re- indoctrination programs, Pillsbury said, the program is now beyond the experimental stage. A special postwar replacement committee appointed from the c.umpjinyViHjstwai- planning committee is in charge, including Bradshaw Mintcrn. for (he legal REVIEWS LEGEND OF WASHINGTON Cherry Tree Incident Example for Americans Chicago, (U.R)_George Washing ton wasn't as truthful in all thing as he was in the cherry tree in cident. Dr. Clarence E. Neymann chief of staff of the Cook count psychopathic hospital, said Tues day in reviewing one of the inos popular legends about the na lion's first president. He had to be able to tell whit lies to be a leader ol men, Dr Neymann said. "White lies ar among the most important thing humanity possescs." The main thing about lies, h added, is to know a good one from ,a bad one and he cited the cherrj tree incident as" an example of goad lie because it is an objec lesson in telling the truth and ha kept many people from telling un truths. Dr. Neymann described a whit, lie as one which is told for tin benefit of the person hearing it while a black lie is one that i told for the benefit of the teller .' U George Washington had chopped down a cherry tree and lied about it, that would havi been a black lie," Neymann ex plained. "But in resisting the temptation, as the myth says he set an example which has had a tremendous influence on j^ cans." People who tell black lies arc psychopathic personalities. Key mann said, and may be the hind ,TM,_ wi11 do other vicious things ihey have what we call a lack o£ super-ego," he explained, "or i too small -development of th' conscience. An under-development of the conscience can result in serious crimes." If Washington had not been able to tell white lies, the coun try might be in ;, pretty bad shape today, he added, "AH great leaders must tell white lies," he explained "Phy sicians tell them often for the welfare of their patients. In wartime white lies are beneficial to Keep people from worrying about their loved ones. "Suppose the myth had worked ilie other way," Neymann added Suppose, according to the story Washington had lied about chopping down the cherry tree ft might have had a bad effect on the American people. "We might not even have any cherry trees left." department, ill. F. Dougherty, operations, and Raymond Ils'trup sales. ' ' A committee representative and the department head under whom ;he employe formerly worked cooperate with him on an individual program-designed to bring the em- ploye up-to-date .with changes in operating- methods and business conditions applying to the job he or she wants. The program, under genedal supervision of plant managers in company units from Buffalo, N. Y., to Sacramento, Cal., may include refresher courses in college or trade schools, instruction by department heads and a combined tudy and work plan. The program is an outgrowth of arlicr steps taken by the cora- any's p o s t w a r committee, of vhich Pillsbury is chairman, to ;ecp all uniformed employes in ouch with developments in the lilling industry. D a t i n g from 'earl Harbor, Pillsbury started ending out a newsletter and as- ured regular mailing of Sunday ewspapers from the home community of each individual in serv- ce. Company officials agreed that is program, which they are con- ·inced can be expanded to re- bsorb the flood of returning em- loyes after demobilization, could ot be considered a guide to any ver-all readjustment program for he U. S., largely because the corn- any does not expect any signi- cant slump in production and lies for some time utter the war. But officials said that efforts ave been made lo handle even hat eventuality.

Tight Censor Rules Made by Churchill L o n d o n , W--Prime Ministei Churchill disclosed in commons Tuesday that the order for tightening censorship in the Mediterranean was made at his telegraphed request, and said news correspondents at the Anzio beachhead "were not the people who caused the trouble." Asked if he has investigated the increased restrictions--since relaxed--he said: "Inquiries did not fake me very long as I myself sent a telegram asking for stricter censorship on alarmist reports about the position in the bridgehead--not by correspondent there but by persons in Naples and Algiers." Laborite E m a n u e l Shinwell askerl "if pessimistic statements come from any quarter apart from military quarters, would it nol be more desirable for the high command on the spot to issue more frequent and authoritative statements?" "I think," answered the prime minister, "they issue very frequent and authoritative statements and I supplemented theii statements by others o[ my own." He declared that "such wori; as 'desperate' ought not lo bo used in a battle of this kind when they are.false and still less are they to be used if they are true." "In the first case, they needlessly distressed the public," he said, "in the 2nd they encouraged the enemy to attack." He expressed pleasure that ·adio facilities have been restored o correspondents in the bridgehead. "These were not the people who caused the trouble, but others far in the rear," he said. "The liberty of the press is of high consequence, so also are the lives' o our troops. ''I certainly thought, froir some headlines and telegrams coming from people in Algiers a ·eporters, in many cases of the American press, that the wrong mpression was being given both o our people and the enemy.' 3y-Producb of Corn ncrease Penicillin New York, (U.RJ-Production of ne life-saving penicillin drug may e increased tremendously through ne discovery that the growth o£ fie mold from which it is made lourishes in corn steep water a y-product of the corn-refining in- ustry, the Corn Industries Re- earch Foundation has announced The water is a residue of an arly step in the production of larches, sugars, syrups and other roducts from corn, the iounda- on said, and is produced ex- ensively by 9 of the corn pro- ucmg companies in the United tales.
