Ypu'Jl understand why when you inake the "comporisontest," miro (Editor's Note: The following article was written by Chaplain (Capt.) William V. Murry, assistant to the post chaplain at. Port Belvoir. Va. Captain Murry was a resident of Pampa from 1928 until 1933. While here he was in ihe body shop business. He later served us pu.stor of the Spearman Church of Chri.sU »y Chaplain (Ca)>U William V. •Murry The hour was seven thirty and we wciv Mipow'd t,o !>i' at work i'.t eight. We iiiiidc; our way along the line and rtcc-ived '.h': usual two "over easy" and found a table and settled down. As is so often the case when returned overseas servicemen talk the conversation drifts to the subject of our Allies with whom wo iiad had experience during the war, the Enslish or the Freir.'h being chief on the list. "I remember when I was in Tidwovth," began Captain WillianT,, "the English turned everything over to us except the laundry nncl the bakery, and we had to eat English bread tin whole time." Then began a lony dissertation about the hiif J'erivms of Americans at the hands oi ihe English, all because the Caplain ciidn'i like Knglish bread. I attempted to sinooih his ruffled nerves l:y say ins that, he should have come oil to France, for there the soldiers preferred JYonch bread to that which was 'jak.-id an the American bakeries. But he wouldn't be turned aside. Our meal was finished hurriedly and we separated. I silent fifteen months in England end thirteen on ,-hc continent. From Colones to Private I have listened to verbal barrages assailing the English, to say nothing of the French and the Russians. They didn't like the proud tones in which the radio announcer would say: "British Geu- mont Nav/a" is begining the news- :;.st. They didn't like their broad- caslinfe', principally English news. In fact, there was nothing but scorn for anything and everything that was British. I crime to the conclusion, that :n addition to being a very bad mannered people, there is little or nothing- we feel to be worthy of praise. Remember the Fable of the Three Blind Men who went to investigate the elephant? One took hold of his tail and described him as a vine; another examined one of his legs and described his as being a tree; while the third ran his hand along his broad side ,ind described him as comparable f o a wall. It was perfectly natural that we in a strange land should be impressed by the things which were strange to us. And too, being accustomed to American ways of doing things, it is but natural that we prefer the American way. But, where is our sense of reason? Surely we didn't expect to find American ways in a foreign country. It is their country, not ours. Why should we feel so hurt because they dop.'t do things like we do? And too, most of our fellows met but a small percent of the people, usually in one locality. Shall we thereby judge a nation? We went to Europe to assist our Allies in a great struggle. This lesson was impressed upon the soldiers. But many times in cafes and other public places, if the English man didn't surrender his right to the American, I could hear su2h expressions as" "We :ame over here and are fighting YOUR WAR for you, what more do you want?" Trivial, you say' And I agree with you. You say such things may be expected when rival teams get together, that it is even true in football. To all this 1 say you are right. But isn't it about time we learn to cencode to the other person the liberty we reserve for ourselves'.' Hud the English used the abusive language and complained openly about us, in the same free manner which we exercised, the American's wouldn't have tolerated it. The truth i.s, England would have lost the war, their homeland and everything they had if it hadn't been for the American's help. No one knew t.hat better than did the Ebglish. They looked upon us as saviors. Every American man was a hero. They opened their doors to us. They reserved nothing. The trains were :rowdcd i:ut American were given a place, which often meant the removing of their own people. The American soldier was a sight-seeing tour, but the Englishman had to have an acceptable reason for riding. Thi; show of respect and appreciation quickly interpreted by the American as being a confession for inferiority and he made the most of it. Tlie more they offered, the more ho took; and griped because there wasn't still more. The finest hotels in London were reserved for Americans on leave and furlough, while l,housands"«tf"-Engllsh slept in the Tube fSubway) because their homes were bombed out. The Americans were paid from three to five times as much money as were the English soliders. With this he bought up the limited supplies of whiskey and beer. To a nation who love their drinks as do the English this was serious. Americans would gladly pay Dig prices for scarce whiskey. This took it out of legitimate channels where there was a ceiling price and put it on the black market. The "Tommies" couldn't touch it. There were complaints of course, but they never made the newspaper. What awCul things I've heard about the British women. Not just a few soldiers, but literally thousands, rave about the morals. I always want to say: "Just listen to who is talking!" What has America got to brag- about? And, can a woman earn such a reputation without some man to aid and abet? How brightly the halo fails to shine around the head of the man who has so much to say about the degraded woman! Nothing made the blood of Americans boil quicker than to see some English woman with a Negro soldier. (I'm a southerner of the old school) But this reminded me of the man who committed murder, stood by and enjoyed the agonies of his bloo'd.'iii «o€^'s HSBfe ifl 1946) of the Washington PoSt. Wash* mem -fx-tk 'i °tm wfim iie tm htthafed and flfty*f6tft ft born to fthfcUsh Woffle* fe ing Suite a welfare j>f6bleBi in land, the artitie stated that filafiy of these babies were b6rn to mafried r/tftrren while their husbands Were fighting in India, Burma and i&lse^ where; b'tit that the husbands, many of them, were willing to forgive their wives if there was some way provided whereby f ,ho boy could he placed in some institution. This is a tragedy. There is no element of humor in it. AmsfiJa should botv her head in shame for her part iti it. It all began in our highest governmental 'Circles. The Negro soldier was dfafted along with the whites, they were placed in separate Companies or battalions, and sent to England. These units moved into towns and villages which, in many instances, had never seen an American soldier. They were Americans. They were the sons of the country who was coming to England's aid. The English had long been drilled to show eevry consideration to the Americans. There being no social distinction In England due to color, tho soldiers invited the women to their dances. Th eAmericans, as I've said before, had plenty of money, and drinks flowed fruely. The result has already been related. These villages were in a very embarrassing position. They couldn't afford to snub the ones who were saving their lives and their homes. But you can be sure thsre were 1 many homes into which these boys never went, due to the diplomacy of the subtle English mind. Our world will never know the peace for which our leaders say we are striving until we learn to be less critical and more anxious to find tho trouble and help to solve it. Disputes can never be lettled by magnifying other people's faults. The need is urgent, and the time is now, for us to try helping solve the problems of the world and be less critical.
