W. l-TORN SOLDIERS JOBLESS AND
BITTER; ARE READY FOR SOCIALISM
Former Congressman Dill of State of Washington Finds
Returning Veterans "Militant Pacifists"-Out for
Shakeup of System Which Bred World War and Now
Leaves Them Stranded.
(By Staff Correspondent, N. Y. Call)
Washington, April 26.--The en
listed 111n of the American expedi
tionary force are bringing back to
the United States a spirit of clean
anld true democracy which plromlises
to shake the stronghold of capitalist
government to its foundations.
Thoroughly acquainted with the
realities of war as borne by the
working class, utterly disillusioned
as to its "glory," successfully inocu
late(d with the virus of militant
tl'cifislm, the men who handled the
real burden of the struggle are filled
with the spirit of opposition to fur
ther exlploitation in civil life.
These are the conclusions reached
by former Congressman C. C. Dill of
1the state of Washington, as the re
sllt of a speaking tour at the huge
deb1-arkation camplls in and lounlld
Newlpolrt News, Va. Dill talked in
public and private with thousands
of troops just off the Iransplorts
which brought them from France,
and is confident that the ret rned
soililr is destined to exert .: big
influence on America's future--an d
anl influence diametrically opposed
to that which the old party leaders
are hoping for.
"The returning soldier--the en
listed manll--is a frankly synical in
tlividuiil," Dill told the Call corlre
illpondelnt today. "HIe has taken the

efficacious. But, ballot or no ballot,
reforms he will have."
The influence of the returned sol
dier, Dill thinks, will not begin to
be really felt until the men have had
time to get home and get around un
der their feet again. He sets 1922
as the first campaign in which ex
soldiers will have lined up with the
reform movement in sufficient power
to sweep the handmaidens of re
action out of office.
Mpn and Office'rs at Odds.
One thing which stands out in
Dill's mind as the result of dozens
of speeches to soldiers, and from
scores of private conversations with
them, is the breach which exists "be
tween the enlisted man and the offi
cer in the Amierican army. He
found mu111ch1 itt(erness toward the
average officer among the rmen who
have just returned from overseas,
and he sees little prospect of any
political movement headed by offi
cers gaining much headway among
the returned troops. This feeling he
umns up as follows:
"The returned soldier feels that
hle has been subject to army (lisci
pline long enough and he has no
intention of letting his officers in
stitute a political domination at
"You are familiar with the repub
lican propaganda to run Pershing.
General Leonard Wood, or" sonme
other military figure for president
and thereby exploit jingoistic senti
nent," The Call correspondent said.
'Is the returned soldier likely to
fall for that design?"
"I don't think so," Dill replied.
'The officeholder the returned sol
dier wants is one who will be a pub
lic servant on the lookout for his
niterests and subject to his will. He
had all the ordering about he wanted
while in the army. He is highly un
likely to want his officers in control
in civilian life as well."
'Wouldl Sellnd ('ongress to 1I'ar.
An interesting sidelight on the
attitude of the average returned sol
dier, as Dill finds him, is his pacific
is.m. The majority of them, he says,
are opposed to compulsory mnilitary
training on the grounds that they
'don't want to see the other fellow
suffer thle damn tyranny we've been
Asked as to what the returned sol
dier thinks of such propositions as
1hat recently raised by Senator King
of IUtah---that a volunteer army of
500,000 be raised in this country to
stamp out bolshevism everywhere in
iEurope-Mr. Dill laughed aloud.
"The dominant thought of the re
turned soldier is to get home," he
said. "He holds no brief for bolshe
visni, but he is certainly opposed to
fighting it with his body. His prob
able retort to Senator King or any
tie else who would ask himn to en
list for service in Russia would be--
'Why don't you go yourself?' "

:GERMANS CAN NE[ER
USE THEIR METAL PLANES
(By United Press.)
Berlin, April 1 8.-- ( By Mail.) -
The Germlnans never had a chance ito
use their latest aero ereation on the
front against the entente airmen--
the entirely metal plane. Fire from
the tanks burning the light inflattm
mable material of which planes are
usually made caused the deaths of at
large percentage of aviators.
The metal plane was made of
aluminumn, body, wing struts and all.
The most recent development includ
'd metal wings, except the edges,
which have to be flexible for guiding
the plane. The metal plane was al
most bullet proof, except direct hits
and came as near being an armored
plane as anyone could develop.
The aluminum plane was devel
)ped by engineers connected with the
Zeppelin works. In the Zeppelin far
tory at Staalen are almost 100 of
these planes nearly finished, most ot
them without wings. They are bright
and shiny aluminum, and are the
mnost deathly looking machines intag
The aluninunl plane was never
used on the front, though it had been
tested very carefully in the rear andt
it the factory. andt was found entire
ly satisfactory. It was as fast andt
alnost as light as the planes made
"The armtistice came along and
Iprevented uis from nusing tlhe alumi
nuai plane," said the ZeDpelin man,
ager. "It was the saLte with our
giant bombers. Another year and
we'd have had enough oflI bothl to
have complete suprcmnacy. Then tihe
entente would have come along with
something better. That's the way it
wenit, nip asd tuck----andt the infin
