Joe." . . William Smith White, AP war correspondent recently returned from assignment with first army, Gays* , , I don't thtok it Is a very good Idea for civilians to refer, to a soldier as 'GI-Jot.' They use it anon* themselves, as the slang ol ? 1 ;v trad l b ^ t 3 e ' n ' t tske " applied to them by cH'ilians. It has a slight patronizing tone coming from an outsider. The way to refer to a soldier is to call him a soldier." _ Harry Harris, an AP war photographer until recently attached to the first army comments: "To the ioldiers a GI Joe is the lowest form' of human. It's the same as calling him a jerk They refer to themselves jokingly as 'GI's" and sometimes as 'Joes' but not as 'GI Joes.' We have the greatest army in the world because they,, are civilians. And as civilians they don't like to have a label, like that huag on them." A spokesman for Yank, th« army -weekly, had this comment 1 ' "The term 'GI' is very different from -GI Joe.' 'GI Joe' is strictly a civilian term used by civilian newspapers Instead of by soldiers. You might call a soldier a 'Or bat you shouldn't call him a 'GI Joe.' We are in large part'responsible for the use of 'GI.'-We use it to apply to any soldier. ; However, 3 of 5 soldiers polled at random at the -army's Halloran hospital don't object to being called GI Joe. Yanks Object to Civilian Use EXPECT ALLIED REVIEW SOON Must Relate Pacific and European Plans , -- A sweeping review ol- allied grand strategy is now expected to be made by military and political chiefs beginning with' the big 3 conference around Feb. 1. A whole series of events is fore- Ins this review and: probably drastic revisions of allied thtnk- inr, the latest beta* the American invasion of Luzon. The problem is to relate fntcre operations in the Pacific, where the war is moving at hictt speed, to coming operations to Europe where the developments are 'oii a badly delayed time-table. Estimates that as a result ot the German offensive that the European war might be prolonged 3 to 6 months, which are still held here despite recent optimistic reports from France, furnish the key to the .problem. Over all strategy has to be planned, where possible, years in advance. The allied chiefs of. staff, taking, into account production factors In this county, began charting a return to Luzon' not long after American forces were compelled to evacuate that bastion In early 1942. From the first it was assumed that any malor operations beyond that point would require maximum concentrations of force which would not be possible until Germany had been defeated and armies and supplies -shifted from Europe to ' the Pacific-Asiatic front. It is more or less open secret that originally, military leaders figure on making that shift during the past fall or the current winter. When it became evident that German strategy was to hold out as long 'as possible rather than surrender to overwhelming allied power, the European time-table was moved back to next spring or early summer. Now it has been shifted to late summer or fall barring unforseen developments of weakness in German resistance. This means that If the European war goes as planned it will be many months before Tnairlmiirr concentrations can be employed in the Pacific. Such concentrations would be necessary toy the invasion of Japan or for the invasion of China. Whenever Russia eels into the Pacific flrht, as most Washington officials confidently expect sb« will, the balance of strategy may shift from the southern approaches to Japan, to the northern approaches, Involving (he KnrD« islands and Manchuria and Korea. If it becomes evident that Hus- sia Intends to undertake no commitments with respect to the war against Japan the best opinion here is that the Pacific time-table may be kept somewhat ahead by speeded-up expansion of American forces to make possible the maintenance of maximum pressure on the Japanese at the same time the European war is being brought to a conclusion. There is, however, little optimism over the p r o s p e c t s for bringing Pacific strategy to its final stage without either the help of Russia or a victory in Europe. Hoine Is Now Hospital Milwaukee, tU.R)-- The mansion built-in 1876 by the multi-millionaire Bill Bradley, Wisconsin lumber king; hai become a . general hospital accommodating · 3 5 persons. . ..'/. .

NOTED MANSION CHANGES HANDS Private Happy on K, P. as Symphony Is Played Camp' Crowder, Mo., U.PJ--The Rochester Symphony orchestra recently introduced a new sym-' phonic composition, but the composer wasn't there'to hear it. He ; "»a» doing KP at Camp Crowded ' . Pvt.-Composer John W. Verrall of : Minneapolis said the unveiling of his 4th symphonic work, called "Symphony No. 2," without his presence left him unperturbed, however. "When my first symphony, was performed by Dmitri Mitropoulos and the Minneapolis symphony, I couldn't eat anything the day of the performance," he explained. "My mouth was dry and my hea3 swam. While It was being played I was so nervous I actually didn't hear a note; * "The same thing occurred during the initial performances of my 2nd and 3rd symphonies. I was excited and jumpy for days afterward." So maybe I was better off this time -washing dishes than I would have been listening." Invents Pin on Vase to Keep Rose Fresh B o s t o n , (U.PJ--Representative Clare Boothe Luce, the republican's glamor girl from Connecticut, has invented something new in costume jewelry-- a bud vase pin containing one rose.
