Even for a country not Involved in hostilities, all- out and aid to certain belligerents means Riving up countless thmRs men and women want and must deny themselves. This is precisely the reason why we should be planning for the postwar problem, which will b* e.ven more artitc than In 1M9, unless w« have more collective foresight. There Is uround for some optimism on this score. Business leaders and government officials alike have made it plain they are at work on the problem, The most promising indication is the disposition In our largest industries to keep their research activities at full operation, seeking out new ways to produce the goods people really want, developing new products for which there will be a spontaneous demand.

That efforf~win be" partly" lost IF we let our economic system slide into another ruinous period of stagnation, once the extraordinary demands of wartime are aatlsfied. Voict Of Tht Press • MFEESkUNG CANDOR (Moltne Qispatab) '-George FlaldingJBlot, who spoke before the Mollne After Dinner club Monday evening, is one of the most candid of those who advocate outright American participation in the war. As a commentator on military affair* he does not at this Ua»» agree with those BrltUh au- tharitlM who stated plainly, some months ago, that American manpower was not needed to defeat Germany. Presumably he never has agroed with Mr. Roosevelt's some. What diluted short-of-war policy. Although born in the * United States, Mr. Eliot was reared in Aug. tralia and received a degree from Melbourne university. He served in the World War British army during the Ill-fated Dardanelle expedition, and later on the western front, .-InUfittJvi .Mcan>ftjLf aptain. irUM United States army military Intel. ]igence reserve, and later attained tha tank of major. His connection with the reserve lasted from 1922 to 1990. He was an accountant with the Haskiru it Sells firm of Kansas City from 1933 to 1927. and began hi* literary work as a fiction writer for aagaalnea in 1026. •• It is refreshing to hear a pro- war advocate who candidly states that an American AEP is needed to'abolish Hitler, although one may bt excused for suspecting that his somewhat dual associations with! two countries havt caused him to! s firf t') '-\"t f : <)•}'.. uic Uc r'>!iid h»t\r irriiicpd thr number .-till more without 'prpdine $2,'i.noo to do so." fore his flrrivfl! nnd hftvr tnkrn piste at similar in*ttlutiorw in nth- pr states said the former mfinnc- inf? o(Tjcer.

Thro\i«h thp gaps tmw left *U boys ran away in a *hort time." POT a long time, he said, one as- j.Uunt cook with a custodian of boys and two attendants tried to do the normal work of a head cook and three «f&i»Unt coolu.. When another vacancy wa* unfilled, thr school's parole office wn.<; left to » woman sk'nouinpher. who couldn't get clerical help, the former mannginK officer declared. The training .«chool is now a prison, he said, criticizing a legislative commission headed by Senator Thomas P. Gunning (R-Prtnceton>. The Gunning commission sponsored legislation to rake from 17 to 10 years the age of boys who could be committed. Harmon said he recommended a maximum age of 16 years. "The unfortunate result of this increase to 16 years has been to bring into the school a larger number of bigger, more mature boys, committed for felonies, on long sen- lences." Harmon commented that Gov. Green had never visited the Kcbool near St. Charles. He had high praise for A. L~. Bowen, who was his superior as director of public welfare during the Homer administration. Mere Runaways Since Fente Harmon fcaid that to date in 1M1 with the fence operating at a cost of more than $300 a month the num- bet of runaways has exceeded that of the same 1940 period without the fence. "A St-year-old employe went over the fence in jiut eight seconds, timed with a stop watch," Harmon reported. He added: "The psychiatrist ha* stated that after the fence was completed he noted an increasing resentment In the attitude or boys over being 'walled in.' In the final analysis, .among 640 boys in the school, the free exercise of will power. Judgment, and self-control is denied to 620 boys In an effort to prevent possibly 30 boys "rom running away." Harmon declared school employes n recent months had been subjected 'to a most outrageous persecution" and that "certain interests have de- iberately attempted to discredit the school throughout the state." "Why -should- the- employes of'-it late institution have been treated so shabbily?" Harmon asked, and 23 Snaky fbh. :!."> Bone. 20 Fondle. 27 Let fall.
