Washburn Armistice Day Gains New Meaning in These Times When we had our first experience with a World War and the fighling finally ended America set up the .Armistice day holiday as a mc- Ipiorial to peace—presumably an enduring peace. Of course there were many who had doubts about it. America had proposed the League of Nations to guarantee peace, and then rejected its own proposal in the voting back home. But we gave peace the benefit of lhe doubt—and Armistice day was a holiday we believed in. The doubters, however, were war clouds rolled up once on the European horizon, border fighting broke out, pretty ^\>on we were engulfed in World war II—and Armistice day became a discredited holiday.

Although the United States has engaged in only seven major wars, it has called upon the Maiines in almost every year of its existence Marines have made more than 200 landings, ;_ many of thorn in times of relative peace Thus it is our ti a- dition to be prepared in either war or peace, since we have found that peace must often be enforced.

On the eve oflhu 173rd year of their existence, the Marines can look back on a year of comparative peace. With their reorganization to peacetime strength virtually completed, Uncle Sam's ' Leatbeinecks' have dss>umed then familial role as guardians of American rights and property throughout the far corners of the earth. The 172nd year marked an important chapter in the annuals of glorious Marine Corps history.

FRED L. DEAN "Civilian Marine" is the appropriate title borne by members of the Marine Corps Reserve. On the 1 eve of their 172nd Anniversary, on November 10, the Marine Corps boasts a reserve force .nearly 54,000 strong as a supplement to the regular Marine Corps establishment. Large Reserve Corps As the United States Marine Corps begins its 173rd year of service to the people of America, one of its most important activities is the Marine Corps Reserve. Operating on a larger scale than ever before in its history, the Marine Corps Reserve today boasts a membership of over 54,000 "Citizen Marines." A total of 45 Organized Reserve ground units have been established in 80 cities thrpughout the United States. These units include Infantry, Artillery, Amphibious Tractor, Tank and Engineering Battalions and Signal Companies. The Marine Corps Air Reserve includes 24 Fighter Squadrons and eight Marine Ground Control Intercept Squadrons located at 21 separate Naval Air Stations throughout the country. Divided into four components, The Fleet Marine Corps Reserve, The Organized Reserve, The Volunteer Reserve and the Women's Reserve, the reserve program is designed to incorporate the lessons learned 'luring the between-war period, and which is sufficiently varied to offer opportunities to all Marine veterans of World War II to maintain and develop their service qualifications. The Marine Corps saw its first reserve organization come into being in 1916, and, after valuable service in World War I, developed into an organization 'similar in activities to the National Guard. However, it succumbed to restrictive legislation in 1931, and until 1934 was practically non-existent. When called into active service in 1940, 23 organized battalions had a strength of 239 officers and 6,192 enlisted men. The service ot these men in World War II and their invaluable aid during the hectic mobilization period re-affirmed the foresight of those who supported the establishment of the United States Marine Corps Reserve.

Says Rebuilding GermanEconomy Is Necessary Washington, Nov. 11 —OP)—Secretary of Stale Marshall testified today it is vital that Germany's economy be restored to the point where its people can become self- supporting and contribute to Europe's economy. The secretary of state told the Senate Foreign Relations Commit tee he has no doubt propaganda at tempts will be made to convince the people of Europe that any such rebuilding of Germany threatens France and Italy. But he expressed Confidence the United States, in administering a proposed long-range recovery program will be able to overcome this "perversion of facts." Marshall'brought up the question of German economy after he had told the senators that $60,000,000 in aid will be needed for China before next July 1, in addition to $2,597,000,000 for European countries and occupation costs! This makes a total of $2,657,000,000 for all-foreign aid programs through the first half of 1948, the .secretary said. "It is vital that the economy of Germany be restored,, keeping in mind protection against its rebuilding its war. potential," Marshall said. "Germany." must be made self-supporting and able to contribute to the economy of Europe." Committee Chairman Vandenberg (R-Mich), who has suggested that the other allies make a separate peace with Germany if Russia refuses to go along, said there have been some charges that American attempts to give economic aid to 16 western nations would erect a wall between east and west* in Europe.

"Our federal funds for house spraying were cut more than half and we had no alternative but to ask you for financial help, the response was more than gratifying," he added.

Ring Identifies Skeleton of Kidnapped Girl L9s Angeles, Nov. 11 — <UP> — A riny signet ring with the initial ••R" was the final proof today that the skeleton of a child about six years old, discovered Sunday near Santa Ana, Cal., was that of kidnap-victim Rochelle Gluskoter.

This American political oddity— that even in a democracy the major public servants have to be protected from the people they serve —has always interested me. I asked about the locked door. "It wasn't Dewey's idea," an Albany newsman said. "It's been the custom here for some time. You know in a stale as big and complex as New York there are a lot of screwballs, and. . ." And that explains the police guard and locked door. The day I called Dewey was dressed in a brown suit and lie, guiltless of wrinkle. About both his person and his office there was an air cf careful neatness and precision. The reporter accompanying rne remarked jokingly that I had come They contended he has power tOjto gel the governor's announce- do that and thus, in effect, squelch'ment he would seek the Rcpubli- the moves against the ten. 2. That if he decides squelching the actions himself, he should hold them until the House meets next Monday and put them before the House for a vote. Martin gave no indication as to thinning as Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton and Lincoln. As he talked he worked methodically at his cigaret holder with a pipe cleaner, and consulted a water,, carafe at his right hand. He said his biggest worries had been to obtain proper staffs for state mental hospitals and to "keep the wolves away who wanted to squander our wartime treasury surplus." His biggest problem now is to • get contractors to bid at prices he I feels are reasonable on reconstruction and highway projects for which $450,000,000 is earmarked. He thinks it essential that the state maintain a large financial reserve. "Helief costs could go up $100,000,000 in a single year," he said. "That isn't any immediate pro" " but I have to think of lhe e w - ^ •can presidential n o m i n a t i o n. I fj ly re welfare of the state, against Dewey gave me a precise imile.

The opposing political faction, ic so-called "left wing" led by ecretary-Treasurer George Addes ormally conceded Reuther's elec- lon victory when it decided last light not to run anybody against iim. An unknown from Cleveland, fohn De Vito insisted he would ppose Reuther as an independent Candidate, thus forcing a rollcall r ote. But such a roll-call could only delay, not change the result. This out of the way, the UAW convention was to proceed to its hottest roll-call — a contest in ivhich 34-year-old Emil Maey of Detroit, a Reuther man, sought to cnock Addes out of the secretary* reasarer post which Addes ha held for 11 years Each roll-call of the 2.QOO dele, gates takes between four and five lours.
