TOP O’ THE MORNING
As the darkness closes ’round them,
As they speed on through the night,
Thou that slumberest not nor sleepest
Keep them, Father, in Thy sight.
God be with our gallant airmen!
Many plaudits they have won.
May they reach the goal of Heaven
There to hear Thee say, “Well done.”
—Helen Robinsson Dugan.
Mr. Dooley
Maybe you haven’t heard about Goodrich
C. Dooley who is listed in “Who’s Who Among
Students in American Universities and Col
leges” as “among the nation’s foremost schol
ars.”
This particular Who's Who is published by
H. Pettus Randall, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The Federal Trade Commission, looking over
Mr. Randall’s business came upon a letter
which it claims he wrote to Mr. Dooley. It
reads:
“You are to be congratulated upon meet
ing the highest requirements necessary for
your biography to be listed. Prerequisites to
selection are character, scholarship, leader
ship in extra-curricular activities, and poten
tiality for future usefulness to business and
society.”
The Trade Commission decided he must
be a guy worth knowing. So it looked him up
and found that “Dooley” is a skeleton which
has figured in student capers for more than
thirty years.
Mr. Randall has promised to tone down
his promotion material for his Who's Who.
Punishment To Fit Crime
Every time there is a revival of Gilbert
and Sullivan operettas everybody hums or
whistles “Let the punishment fit the crime’’
with gusto, to the discomfort of workers with
in earshot. Yet how many people thus in
dulging a very natural, if annoying, habit,
consider that life might be improved if pun
ishment were actually adjusted to fit crime?
To do so would involve more than de
manding an eye for an eye. It would strike
at the real source of the crime, which often
enough is not the person who commits it but
someone else. Remember Fagin?
Out in Wisconsin is a state probation of
ficer, by name of G. C. Shipman, who has
hit upon a plan for placing responsibility and
punishment for juvenile delinquency upon
those most to blame, and that is not upon the
juveniles themselves, but the families. The
Wisconsin State Welfare Department recently
published an essay on this subject by Mr.
Shipman in which the author suggests a plan
by which whole families could be held and
supervised for delinquency.
Admitting that there is not yet a shred
of legal philosophy to support such an experi
ment, he describes his proposed institution as
something between probation and a prison. He
offers such possible name? as Family Insti
tute and Family Refuge.
Probation is now difficult and sometimes
futile because there is no opportunity for im
proving the home and environment of the
probationer, the state officer argued.
He said that probation and parole experi
ence in Wisconsin point the way “to an in
stitution designed to treat therapeutically and
simultaneously all members of a demoralized
family.’’
Such arrangements would be a boon to
localities which now have no way to handle
delinquent families when their heads are im
prisoned, he explained.
“Experimentation with the Family Insti
tute might well be undertaken immediately so
that our social and penal services will be
better prepared to cope with family problems
during the crisis of demobilization and the
post-war era,’’ Mr. Shipman declared.
New Cars Soon
All restrictions have been lifted from
automobile production. Manufacturers may
turn out new cars as fast as they can move
them off assembly lines. Many thousands of
civilians who are still driving pre-war cars
may soon buy new ones at prices, it is claim
ed, only slightly higher than in 1941. They
will have many improvements, according to
the prophets, especially in combustion by
which the mileage per gallon of gasoline will
be much greater than in the old days.
But there will be no spare tires. The rub
ber situation is not yet clear and until it is
certain that plenty will be available, the fifth
tire will not become standard equipment. This
means that owners, however great the urge to
eat up the highway miles just to see. how
fast the new cars can travel, ought to sup
press the desire for speed lest they wear out
their tires before they can replace them oi
carry on extra on the spare rack.
There are many other reasons why fast
driving should be discouraged, safety .is among
them. But this lack of a spare ought to be
viewed in all of its potentialities for disaster.
It's The Blood That Counts
The feeling that something more than a
common language should bind the United
States and Great Britain for mutual security,
which was so often discussed in the early
days of the war in Europe, is being revived
on both sides of the Atlantic. Among British
leaders even are some who say that unless
new bonds are created for binding the two
powers closer, Great Britain inevitably must
fade out of the picture. They frankly admit
that the Empire which has been built up over
the years with such difficulty cannot continue
to subsist on its own resources, varied as they
are, nor survive without American help in a
world which will have little in common with
the pre-war world. Ibis, of course, is not the
view of the conservatives, but of Britons who
have watched the world being remolded in
recent years and have the vision to under
stand what has been going on.
This war and the social revolution in Eng
land, which antedates the war, has Vitally
affected Britain’s place in the world. Instead
of emerging one of the two greatest powers
her place has been usurped, with the United
States and Russia holding top positions. This
outs ail three in a diffi’iRt position. Whereas
.he United States was a great nation before
the war it emerges a great power, with unac
customed responsibilities which she will have
to learn quickly to assume. To a large ex
tent the same situation exists in Soviet Rus
sia. She too has new responsibilities which
she must learn to meet. Thus the two greatest
powers face the postwar world without ade
quate training for their new jobs and the third
has the necessary training but needs a crutch
to lean on.
It would be best for the world if the three
could see eye to eye, and it appears that on
most matters there is more harmony among
them than could have been expected. Cer
tainly they are in agreement on the primary
principles of world peace. But because of the
ties of blood and language it must be obvious
that Britain and the United States should have
a feeling of kinship that cannot include Rus
sia, however close may be their friendship
for her. It is like twins who have a mutual
friend. Their consanguinity cannot extend to
the friend, but that does not make the friend
ship less cordial.
Britain and the United States have many
conflicting views. But this does not make it
less desirable that they form the closest pos
sible affiliation. We cannot very well get along
without our cousin across the Atlantic and are
morally obligated to play on the same team.

Ain’t Nature Grand?
It is the season for nature stories in the
papers, and a remarkably good season it is,
all things considered. In a politically spectacu
lar summer like this one, the flow of wonder
tales from the wild’vood might be expected to
decline. Yet such tales remain abundant, the
old perennials are among them as hardy as
ever. With new settings, a few changes of de
tail, they serve again.
The ancient story of the fisherman’s mul
tiple haul recurs in several novel and attrac
tive forms. For instance, Daniel Boone Spel
vin, of Nutmeg Corners, Conn., fishing for
eels, feels a tug on his line, pulls in and finds
on his hook a frog, a one-pound pickerel, a
three pound bass and a whale of a snapping
turtle. The frog had taken the angleworm, the
pickerel had swallowed tffe frog, the bass had
nabbed the pickerel, the turtle had seized the
bass, and Mr. Spelvin had caught them all at
one fell yank. There is his picture in the local
paper to prove it.
Although thousands of nature lovers stayed
home from the woods this summer in order to
tend their victory gardens, their tales of wild
animal intelligence show no appreci ble fall
ing off. From New Jersey comes one about
a rabbit.
This rabbit, it seems, visited an Essex
county vegetable garden daily for a breakfast
of lettuce, carrots and other plants laboriously
cultivated and greatly needed by the lawful
owners. Traps and other preventive means
within the law having failed to liquidate the
trespasser, the gardener acquired a dachshund
advertised as being a terror to rabbits.
Next day after the dog’s arrival the rab
bit changed its tactics. Instead of approaching
the vegetables directly, it made a series ol
tracks on the lawn that lay between the dog
house and the garden. From side to side ol
the lawn it hopped, tracing a labyrinthine pat
tern of spirals, loops, figure-eights, reverse
curves, double bowknots and other intricacies
known to the rabbit mind. Then it proceeded
to business as usual.
At this juncture the gardener released the
dachshund and egged it on with encouraging
words. Instantly the dog was otf, nose to the
ground, hot on the rabbit's trail. Many minutes
later he was still entangled in the invisible
maze which the rabbit had left on the lawn.
All that while sat Brer Rabbit in plain sight,
thirty feet away, calmly consuming young
cabbages and quietly smiling. The Newark
Evening News vouched for that one.
This is the time of year for stories about
the vivacious small-mouth black bass, theii
sportiveness, their resourcefulness and their
unpredictable personal habits.
This year he is at his mischief as usual.
Though young anglers in great numbers are
still absent overseas and most of their elders
are town-bound, the bass continues to get into
the papers. For one recent example, when
hooked by a pair of Vermont canoeists, he
hurled himself out of the water and over the
canoe, capsized the craft and made off with
an eight-dollar tapered line and a forty-dollar
split-bamboo rod, not to mention a multiplying
reel. From all parts of the land between Maine
and Mississipi come black-bass yarns like
that.
Most such stories can be counted upon for
surprise endings. Thus, the other day, a school
man and a telephone engineer, both church
members, were casting minnows for bass from
a dory anchored above a ledge off the point
of an island facing Wolfeboro Bay in Lake
Winnepesaukee. After an extra-long cast the
engineer had a terrific strike. “Look out! He’s
going to break!’’ shouted the schoolman, drop
ping his own rod and grasping the dipnet.
The creature broke, sure enough. A white
collar loon, weight twenty pounds at least, it
flew in savage circles round the boat, uttering
hideous cries, until it snapped the line at
last and vanished in the direction of the White
Mountains.
Here in the toiling city it is good to know,
from letters from fortunate friends and from
stray items in the paper, that the bass, the
rabbits, the loons and their companions of the
woods and the waters are carrying on as usual
out there in Vacationland, awaiting the return
of a larger audience than they have had this
summer.
Just now the waxwings are doubtless feed
ing in flocks in the cedar trees, storing up for
their yearly trip south. The porcupines are
looking over spade handles and oar handles
with a view to consuming them next winter.
The merganser ducklings are almost full
grown as they cruise the shores of lake and
pond. The gray gulls are wandering inland
from the sea, looking for a change of diet,
and the nighthawks are winging across the
sunsets. They will be there, ready to inspire
nature stories, next summer. — New York
Times.
Editorial Comment
TIME TO TELL
Shortly after Pearl Harbor a Washington
writer spoke of that disaster as the result
of a “miscalculation.” This man is generally
credited with possessing excellent channels of
information during the presidency of Mr.
Roosevelt. Furthermore he knows the mean
ing of words. And he did not speak of “sur
prise’’ but “miscalculation.”
In the midst of the war a British official
in making some impromptu remarks spoke
of the United States having “provoked” at
tack by Japan. That significant reference has
never been further explained.

paign accused Admiral Kimmel and General
Short of blame for Pearl Harbor, Admiral

Britian Healthy But Tired After Five
Long Years Of War, Health Ministry Says
By HELEN CAMP
(Substituting for Kenneth L.
Dixon)
LONDON, Aug. 26.—(JP)—Great
Britain, cautiously congratulating
herself for being “singularly free”
of epidemics and disease during
five years of war, now is looking
ahead apprehensively to what the
coming winter—especially if it fc
severe—may bring.
‘"Up to now the nation’s health
has been one of the breath-taking
reliefs of the war,” a spokesman
for the Ministry of Health said
today. “But everyone is so tired
now that if we had a sharp winter
I don’t like to think what would
happen.”
Records show that infectious
diseases generally have not in
creased, and that there has been
a decrease in the instance of diph
theria. In addition, infant, neo
natal and maternal mortality rates
and the number of still-births have
been the lowest ever recorded.
The birth rate is the highest in
15 years.
“The two black spots on this
record,” the spokesman said, “are
increases in tuberculosis and ven
ereal disease.”
In the case of V. D., which he
described as a wartime disease
anyway, “part of the increase in
cases recorded was due to the na
tion-wide campaign urging people
to go to centers for teatment and
stop the spread of the disease.
“Of course,” he added, ‘‘it’s
difficult to assess the health of the
nation accurately because we have
no record of minor illnesses
People are tired and rundown and
have backaches and colds, but we
don’t hear of it.”
“A great many people have had
a great deal more to do and it
hasn’t done some of them any
harm,” the spokesman continued.
■'There have been cases of Neuro
sis, of course, but these were usual
ly where there was a tendency
that way before. Looking at the
situation as a whole, we feel it
may fairly be claimed that the
war demonstrated the mental
stability of the nation.”
The decrease in infant and ma
ternal mortality rates he at ributed
tc nutritional priorities giving to
mothers and children for eggs,
milk, meat, orange juice, cod-liver
oil and vitamins during the war.
‘‘That class of the population
seems almost to have benefited by
the concentrated attention given
it during the war,” he said. “Or
dinarily many mothers would not
have bothered to follow special
diets for themselves or their chil
dren. But during the war food
was so important that they collect
ed any extra rations they could.”
The same, he added, was true
to a lesser extent about the popula
tion in general.
“There has been so much pub
licity about foods and how to cook
them in order to get the most from
them,” he said, "that most house
wives are bet er cooks than they
were before the war. They sup
plement meat with cheese, get all
the fruits and vegetables they can,
and generally bother with details
instead of just feeding their
families bread and jam and tea.”
The only time England came
close to an epidemic during the
war was in the winter of 1943-4
when a large number of influenza
deaths was reported in Novem
ber and December. But the epi
demic waneed rapidly and was in
no way comparable to that of the
last war.
The Literary Guidepost
By W. G. ROGERS
We’re back right where w e
began 175 years ago, says Peffer
in this book, an important edition
to the lengthening list of profound
ly helpful studies of our foreign
affairs.
We washed our hands of Europe
when we revolted against Eng
land, but they have not stayed
washed. A complete break in the
ties with Europe, our forefathers
thought, would end involvement
in Europe’s wars. If for a time that
worked, the time was short. Be •
yond any doubt whatever, this
writer asserts, America is n o w
inescapably a part of the world,
sharing in world peace and also
in world war. Two wars within one
deration ought to be proof enough
? says, especially since we enter
-1 both despite the most diligent
fforts to stay out.
He sees two main paths open to
merica: “to prevent war or to
ake itself strong enough to win
ars when they come,” possibly
with a system of alliances. $n
agreement with other recent writ
ers he favors prevention and ur
ges’ us to make up our minds to
submit to the sacrifice of our so
called sovereignty t o whatevei
extent international cooperation
necessitates. For instance, if a new
invasion of Ethiopia threatened,
we should have to give up some of
our oil export trade, vote money
send men and arms to punish the
aggressor, and all this bv direc
tion of some world league or con
gress.
The al'ernative would be the
creation of a monstrous military
state, costing fabulous sums, re
quiring two or three years out of
the lives of our youth.
Europeans and Asiatics are bet
ter informed about international
affairs than Americans; they have
had to be. So the telling points
registered by Peffer will be more
leadily accepted abroad than at
home. If we really hope o be good
neighbors, we need to be under
standing neighbors, and willing to
lend a hand in emergencies. The
author thinks intelligence in this
field more efficacious than our tra
ditional idealism.
Daily Prayer
FOR A PASSION FOR PEACE
In a bitter school Thou hast
taught us, O Lord, the awfulness
of war. Our whole earth is seamed
and scarred with the signs oi
strife. Millions will go sorrowing
throughout the years because oi
the wounds of war. In'.o all this
heritage of hurt we have entered,
because we, and our leaders, were
faithless to Thee. Now, chasten
ed, we would pursue the path of
peace. With passionate purpose,
we would build a new world of
justice and peace and brotherhood.
God help us to be equal to this
hour! Give us, first of all, hearts
at peace with Thee; so shall we
be in unity with the brotherhood
of man. Inspire us, we entreat
Thee, O Omnipotent Spirit, with
an attitude of peace and good will
to all men. Save us from censori
ousness toward other men and
other nations. By Thy great pow
er, deliver us from the grief of
greed, and from the sin of selfish
ness. Teach us to pray peace, to
live peace, all in conformity with
Thy beautiful plans for peace.
Amen.—W.T.E.

HOUSTON, Tex.—(U.R)—Dancing
couples at a wayside tavern
thought it was "just a brothei
act” when two swaggering, rakish
ly-dressed "twins" burst onto the
dance floor, flourished six-guns and
ordered; "All right, shell out the
cash!!’
The optimistic impression van
ished when one of the robbers
fired a bullet through a peanut
machine and another into the
floor under the dancers’ feet.
The holduo men, resembling a
vaudeville “brother” act in sporty
white straw ,hats. white sport*

$258 when the dancers decided
they’d better “Shell out the cash.”
“Mind” Is Study Subject
In Scientist Churches
“Mind” was the subject of the
Lesson-Sermon in all Christian
Science churches and societies on
Sunday, August 26.
The Golden Text was from Daniel
2: 20, 21. “Blessed be the name
of God for ever and ever: foi
wisdom and might are his .
he giveth wisdom unto the wise,
and knowledge to them that know
understanding.”
Among the citations comprising
the Lesson-Serman were the fol
lowing from the Bible: “And it
shall come to pass in the last days,
that the mountain of the Lord’s
house shall be established in the
top of the mountains, and shall
be exalted above the hills; and all
nations shall flow unto it. And
many people shall go up and say,
come ye, and let us go up to the
mountain of the Lord, to the house
of the God of Jacob; and he will
teach us his ways, and we will
walk in his paths; for out of
Zion shall go forth the law, and
the word of the Lord from Jer
usalem” (Isaiah 3: 2, 3.)
The Lesson-Sermon also includ
ed the following passages from
the Christian Science textbook,
“Science and Health with Key to
the Scrintures” by Mary Baker
Eddy: “It should be thoroughly
understood that all men have one
mind, one God and Father, one
life, truth, and love. . . .Having
no other Gods, turning to no other
but the one perfect mind "0 guide
him, man is the likeness of God
pure and eternal, having that
mind which was also in Christ.”

Boyington, a 31-yea: old piw
from Okanogan, Wash., resiZ
from the Marine corps before ,
war and joined Chennaulfs jr,
ing Tigers. He was such a bois!
terous, rough-and-tumble har
living individual that even the run’
ged people making up the soldier*,
of-fortune Tigers were a little afra;d
of him. He shot down-confirmed
—six Japanese before the Tigers
were disbanded.
The Marine corps, in which he
had made plenty of high-rank™
enemies since he cared not a whit
about rank for rank's sake, some
what reluctantly reinstated him aj
a major and sent him into the
Solomons in 1943.
They were short of fighter squad,
rons so Boyington was commission,
ed to form a squadron from re.
placements, extras, and odds-and
ends of other units. The squadron
was regarded as a collection of mW
fits.
Boyington drilled them in the
two-plane section, double-section
tactics, which became infallible
against the Japanese, until they
were so tired of training they were
ready to revolt. Then—after re
covering from a fractured leg
from a wine-mess tussle—he led
them into action under the name
of the black sheep.
The squadron which had been
swept up from the replacement
tents of other squadrons promised
for a while to win the war all alone,
Thsyshot down so many Japanese,
destroyed so many on the ground
and knocked out so much shipping
they had everybody giddy. And
they did it with such a roar and
a flourish that you expected them
to land with plumes in their hel
mets. They took their cues from
the burly, restless, swaggering
Boyington, who shot down 19 Jap
anese personally during their rush
to glory.
Then at the peak of the fight
on January 3, 1944, about a week
before he was to have gone home
on leave—Boyington shot down hi:
26th Japanese plane over Rabaul
equalling the the-American record
—dived through a cloud on another
Japanese formation with his wing
man, and was never seen again.
The stunned black sheep searched
around the clock. He was reported
on New Ireland, on New Britain,
on Green island, on Buka, a res
cued flier thought he saw him
crash-land and swim ashore on
some atoll. There were rumors
that he was in a Nipponese prison
camp at Rabaul, at Kavieng. Some
body heard they captured docu
ments on Saipan, on Guam, on
Palau which stated that he had
been taken to a prison camp in
Japan. You could never find any
confirmation.
The Black Sheep, despite their
terrific record, were disbanded
and the members reassigned to
other outfits. Boyington's personal
leadership was too much a par!
of them. A substitute was out o!
the question. ,
But the scattered members of the
old squadron still hope. Why.’ Be
cause he told them once—"If yoi
guys ever see me go down with
30 Japs on my tail don't worry.
I’ll meet you in a San Diego bar
six months after the war."
And that would be a reunion with
all the throttle and prop-pitch she J
take.
