KM» DESERVING OF PUNISHMENT There is so much lawlessness abroad (host; days that it would IK- dit't'ici.ilt to pick out tlio meanest thief, or the offender whose idea •()!' a prank stamps him as the most outstanding offender against the laws of public satVty. "\Vo have no intention of cluing the picking, but we feel that one of the meanest thieves is the fellow who raids victory pardons' and carries off tin. 1 corn, tomatoes and othej- cmps. It is nut surprising that the gardeners wh<> have spent many hours working in the gardens and who have been lookiny furw;iril with pleasurable iinticipiitions to on;i<>y'iii.<r the fruits of their labors are highly incensed over these thefts and feel that no punishment is too severe for the culprits. .Another type of miscreant is the person who delights in soundiniv false fire alarms. His escapades send members of the fire department hurryini;- to the liox from which the alarm was sounded ami cause them to endanger their own safety in their of forts to save life and property', Jt is to be hoped that these garden thieves ami false alarm s<umders will bo apprehended and made to regret reprehensible and unlawful acts. their PROGRESS OF SLAUGHTER • Even while the Europenii war dt'Hw.s near its uml, its IU.JITOI'S scorn t<> inci-e.'iso.. It Jy .not only tliu killin^'of t'iii'lilini* men mid the ilext ruction ol' homos ;nul property,--hut the immonso scale <>n which those things occur and the unprecedented methods used. Guns .UTOW more powerful, nnd new devices fur killing grow more effective and dreadful. The climax -of.' this war, as regards mechanism, is the flying boml>, whose nature and horror are not yet fully real- i/.ed l>y the public. Such weapons are possessed by both sides, although the Germans liavo been first to use them mid most ruthless, in their operation. There arc warnings from t lie .enemy that still worse weapons are at liand. Jlosy far can this nice for bigger and better methods of slaughter proceed. 1 There seems to be no limit to the inventions science. Tfieiv seerns also to be no limit to the .willingness uf ambitions or desperate incn t" use still more diabolical means, ol' wreckage and slaughter as they appear. It may be literally true that this generation—or at least the next one—will possess the means of destroying civili/ation. The most import ant job of statesmanship, backed by eivilixed men throughout the world is to check tliu trend and prevent such a catastrophe. This is the combined task of rulers and citizens in cverv civilixed countrv. DANGEROUS PRACTICES Slate Motor Vehicle Commissioner John T. McCarthy's, warning against, the practice which some children .have of standing on the seats or riiTing in such a position that a quick stop may result in llii'ir being thrown forward against the windshield or uther solid pan of the car is one that should be heeded. -Another dangerous habit which youngsters have is putting an arm out through the car window and paying no attention to the danger of having the arm struck by a passing vehicle. Commissioner McCarthy says his personal observations indicate that parents are becoming increasingly careless regarding the safeguarding of their young chilil pas-sen get's,' Our own observations liavo cf«isod us 1o form the same opinion.

Japan Were Booked At .Cairo Sjiecial to Central I'rcss • WASHINGTON—At last it has been revealed that one of the main things accomplished at the Cairo conference between President Roosevelt and' Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek last December paved the way for the current Superfortress raids on Japan. The disclosure., was made by "China." a monthly publication of the olhcial Chinese ministry of information. , i While the Superforts had been in dollars, process of development before the outbreak of war, .their theater of employment wns not decided upon until the.struggle was well under way. At Cairo the two leaders worked out the details about bases am! use of. local manpower to huild the giant landing fields. in ollice. If the Senate Military Affairs c&mmittee has its way, however, Cinyton will go out of office with creation of u War Surplus Property administration, which would'be administered, by a board of eight mombors. The House favors' a single administrator. Estimates of the amount of surplus government property after the war vary from GO to J2S billion THE NATIONS CAPITAL is adding this .story to its collection entitled "My Most Embarrassing Jtfoment." . A Washington womun, traveling alone by train from the nation's capital to Chicago, noticed a lovely young woman sitting in the Pullman compartment directly across the aifJe. They engaged in conversation, and finally went to the diner together for lunch. The woman from Washington told her now-found companion all about herself, and finally remarked that her 'husband was a research engineer with ington. "A'nd what does your husbanc do?" she llnally asked the younj. woman. "He's is the Army overseas," the woman replied. "Oh. that's too bad," the Washingtonian countered. "Was ht draitod?" "Well, no. You sec the Army his profession. Much later the red-faced Washingtonian discovered her charming: friend was the wife of Slaj. Gen. Leonard T. Gerow, now serving with Lieut. Gen.

By •WITJUAM 1UTT' (Central Press Writer) A RETURNING explorer claims to have found the happiest village tile world in a South-American native town. Most nmup.injj is that all the inhabitants arc related ench other. The first clue to the Dewey personality that I ever had came before we were neighbors: A travelled Englishman, urbane, cosmopolitan Stephen Smith, and I were talking about days when we both were in, on the wild border between India and Afghanistan. He told me how he had become an American citizen (which Englishmen seldom do) and had been on the Grand Jury- before which Dewey, then Manhattan District' Attorney, was tiy- ing an overlord of the underworld, running a • commercialized vice racket. We hx.d been reading much about Dewey, new to fame as the man who was cleaning up New York. Even then people were wondering — "What's he like?" I asked, expecting some smartly tailored London remarks about moral crusaders, puritanical reformers and efforts to abolish the oldest profession. Smith told how Dcwcy had given a talk to- the Grand Jurors—that he was not engaged in puritanical reform—he wjis trying to bust the vilest of rackets. Dewey's Dominant Characteristic Is Common Sense The impression I got provides a key to the enigma so niany see in Dewey. Somebody once asked George 2. Medalie, U. S. District Attorney. Dewey's superior, what he thought was Dewey's dominant characteristic. Mcdalie replied: "Common sense—he was born with it." My notion is that Dewey has common sense to the point of genius; that might make anyone uimcuit to understand. When offered the nomination for District Attorney, Dewey refused, held olT three weeks—though the ollice was a glittering prize for a young lawyer. A series of great ilgures in American politics had made their first fame as prosecu- iors—Charles Evans Hughes, Hiram Johnson. Gov Whitman of New York, Sen. Folk of Missouri. But Dewey knew that in New- York County there were 120.000 enrolled Republicans against 036,000 Democrats. He held off until his studies convinced him that he had a good chance. Then he put on a memorable campaign, and was elected by a majority of 309,000. Fairly recently, during his early days as Governor, Dewey was complimented for an able message to the Legislature. He responded: "Tii was prepared for me by my able and hard-working commissioners and assistants. They're entitled to the Credit." Time and again, in speaking of something he has accomplished, Dewey has said: "It was. all due to my assistants." In all of which there is more than mere engaging modesty. Dewey. operates as an organizer. He looks upon administration of a' job of getting- the largest results out of the abilities of other men.-Ergo, he seeks men of great ability. Anyway, They Aren't On one occasion, as Governor, he called in a group of his assistants to listen to the first draft of a speech he was preparing. He read it through, and then asked: "How do you like it?" Not a sound, . • Dewey looked disappointed and then growled: "Well, at least you are not a bunch of yes-men." Dewey is supposed to be cold, nnd he can be as frosty as an icicle on occasion. While" lie was District Attorney his administrative assistant, now District Attor- pccts of a comic grotesque, membor of the Dewey staff,"L an ;ible fellow, exhibited ayni of mental' strain, and went for a rest. He returned a beard .and said to Dcwcy:" Abraham Lincoln!" The Governor tried to talk out of the illusion—and Whereupon the recent E ffl tor went out and had his shaved off. But, back he this time with his trimmed precisely in the shape it the Dcwoy mustache. l n fa^ ^ went to Dewey's secretary aril j started giving her instructions in :'uh gubernatorial style.

Formerly president of the Now York Advertising Club Charley Murphy is a sUlwart in' the Brooklyn Democratic organization, and as regular as n,^ come. One evening we were over for dinner "at the Murphy's pic. fjresque log house. Lynn Sumncr, another past-president of the New York Advertising Club, brought up the musical score of "Oklahoma," which was just beginning iis lonj run. After dinner, Mrs. Murphy took the score over to the pimo and ran through the catchy uints. Dewey went over and joinid he*. In his college days he studied bari ;one, was the director of tht Freshman Glee Club, led the Vti- sity Glee Club for two years, «id won the first prize in one of thus statewide singing contests, which made him Michigan State pion Baritone. Now, to his accompaniment, he sang one song after another from "Oklahoma." . The next morning, out on tire gojf course, the governor teed ol with a line shot, and went dowc the- line singing his head off: "Oh what a beautiful morning. Oh whti a beautiful day." On the next she', he swung with a lusty con.ldcno, topped the ball and sent it dribbling for a few yards into a ravine that wo call the Matto Grosso, bt- cause of the trouble we have i: digging golf balls out of a thickf, worthy of the South America wilderness. This time he went £.'ter the ball, singing even louder than before: "Oh what a helm morning. Oh whata heluva day."
