PSYCHtATBIC SCREENING The soldier who confessed to the murder of Sir Eric Teichman, British diplomat, was, according to an Army psychiatrist, "a mentally defective homicidal degenerate." After examination, the psychiatrist found his mental age to be about 9 year.s. and that he suffered from "a constitutional psychopathic condition of emotional instability and explosive and primitive sadistic aggressiveness." Psychiatric tests are part of induction physical examinations. There are psychiatrists attached to camps in this country whose job is to weed out the obviously luifit who passed the initial mental test. There are other psychiatrists near the combat areas who assist in the eatment of combat neuroses. It .seems odd that such an obvious degenerate as this killer should have gone through inductitsn and training and .spent .some time in England without his delielencie« being discovered and acted upon. Of course, he Is only one among al- mast 12.000.000 .servicemen, so per- hap.s the psychlatrista should not be Judged too harshly. But one might ako wonder how many more like, him have slipped through examinations unnoticed. A finer initial screening and more observant check-ups would seem to be in order, if crimes perhaps of even greater intefilational consequence than the Teichman murder are to be averted. NICE WORK Congressman Carl Vinson wants to hike the president's salary by $25,000 because it Is now "less than the income of Prank Sinatra." Well, maytte Mr. Roosevelt doesn't have the best paying job in the country. But as he heads into his fourth term, it certainly looks like good, steady work. PHOO-EE A piece of radio publicity I came upon mentioned something about a "combat returnee," and revived my concern over just how far this double-e business is going to go. The war has brought us the draftee (or that ntce-nelly substitute, selectee) and the trainee. Now we have the returnee, and very likely the dischargee will be coming along when he has reduced the German and the Jap to the status of vanquishee. In a recent dispatch from Stockholm, a French "escapee" descrilied his experiences in a Berlin prison. The possibilities are limited only by the number of English nouns Identifying the performer of an action. And that's what frightens me. For, by wholesale application of a stiff and tiresome practice of the law and buslnes.s world, every performer can have his performee, even' lover hLs lovee, etc. Where It all will end Is beyond me. PcrhniK there will have to be sonic organized crusade to rescue the language of Shakespeare and Bernard Shaw and H. h. Mencken from the ad writers, press agents and other profeMlonal word-coin- oYn, and (jlvc It back to thoae who .still prefer to call a .spade a .spade, or II combat returnee jiist a plain .soldier come home.

Washington: An indictment of the army air service was delivered m the Senate today by Senator New, in opening debate on his bill proposing the creation of a separate department of aeronautics to "combine all governmental air activities. He charced that the service had Ijeen a failure and that the present army planes were "very near obsolete." "If we were to have trouble with any foreign government, Mexico, for example," said Senator New, "wo would not have any fast pursuit planes by which we could go across the border. We'd have to go to a foreign government to get planes of that type." seriously ill.

Here at home soaring confidence has returned. Russia's stock has boomed again. And tho.se pools of two-bit bets on when the war will end are once more in evidence. As my contribution to the general chorus of optimism I should like to repeat a classic definition by General of the Army Eisenhower: "War is like pushing a heavily loaded wagon up a steep hill in a ft)g and never, knowing when you are going to reach the top. So you have to push like hell all the time."

The selection of leaders arose from necessity.. The caravans were, for most of tlieir journey, far away from sheriffs and courts, and there was no legal method of handling these crowds of men, some of whom wore desperados or fugitives Irvm justice. The leadei-s. were usually given authority, by tlie consent of those who elected them, to keep order; to regulate the progress of the westward marcli; to see that the sick and disabled were taken care of; to punish thieves and other transgressors; to put a stop to drunkenness and disorder of all kinds. They were supposed to call a jury to pass on serious misdemeanors. Criminals were occasionally executed after a jury trial. The juiies—or the leader— sometimes expelled members o£ the caravan for quarreling, or for stealing, or for doing injury to the wagons and animals of others. « * * M.'ty 7.
