Japanese Dillingers
As nearly as we can get at the true status
of the Black Dragon Society in Japan, which
General MacArthur has ordered dissolved and
its leaders arrested, it has been a sort of
quasi-official Dillingf-r gang whose chief pur
pose was to make trouble for foreign “devils”
and apparently is not disposed to give up its
bad habits despite its ostensible disbanding
last month.
Throughout the period of worst racketeering
in this country, police authorities, including
the FBI, learned the only way to get along
with bandits was to kill them. There is no
reason to assume that the Black Dragoneers
are a bit better than our own bandits or en
titled to less severe punishment.
It is gratifying to learn that General Mac
Arthur feels his position in Japan sufficiently
firm to take the step he has against the leader
ship of the society. We cannot help hoping
that if disposal of the leaders does not com
pletely stop its activities he will take the same
step against the entire membership.
It was not only necessary to kill Dillinger
in the interest of national security, but all
his identified gang as well.
Devereux Freed
The rescue of Major James P. Devereux
from a Japanese prison camp on Hokkaido,
most northerly of the Japanese home islands,
sends a thrill across the Pacific second only
to that feit upon General Wainright’s release
in Manchuria. For it was Major Devereux who
commanded the little force on Wake island
that fought off the enemy with exceptional
(or typical) heroism when the Japs were tak
ing all they surveyed in the early thrusts oi
the war, and whose whereabouts has been in
doubt since he, with the remnant of his vil
iant force, was led away to captivity.
Trim and alert, but thinner and grayer after
his imprisonment, Maj. Devereux (he’s probab
ly a colonel now) wanted it distinctly under
stood that he did not send the message “send us
more Japs,” which was so widely quoted dur
ing those terrible days of attack. We had plen
ty of them as it was, he said, “although I had
to give the ‘cease fire’ order three times.”
Like Wainwright, Devereux is a hero in de
feat. He too will be coming home to rest
and recuperate. Hopefully he will be permitted
to do just that. A grateful people naturally
will want to extend a welcome. A grateful
nation surely will want to decorate him. But
there is no better way the people’s gratitude
could be proved than by cutting out much ol
the fanfare that customarily marks the hero’s
Industrial Expansion
The report of George W. Simon, Jr., on
Wilmington’s possibilities for industrial expan
sion is in hand. A committee to guide Wilming
ton’s economic development has been named.
Request for the employment of an industrial
agent has been made.
Thus the foundation for the city’s postwar
stabilization is laid. The superstructure will
depend upon the manner of effort the people
of the entire community make to carry out
the program and their willingness to put their
money to work not only for themselves but the
benefit of all.
The Simon report redirects Wilmington’s at
tention to its opportunities, noting particularly
the large population within a hundred miles
the city’s normal trade area. It shows thai
this population’s income is larger than thai
of the people within the same area arounc
It calls for port development, and notes
specifically the need for a tobacco warehoust
and other facilities for storing and handlinj
products and cargo. Among new industries
which would do well hereabouts, it mentions
small boat building, the making of fruit an<
vegetable baskets, book publishing, canninj
and drying of fruit and vegetables, (why no
icing, too?), rug and carpet making, cottoi
manufacture, furniture, cement, petroleum re
fining, perfumery.
Many of these industries are already estab
4 I
lished. Their progress^ obviously indicates that
they can be successful. The need, of course,
is for more. The competition they would create
among themselves inevitably would increase
their volume of production and consequently
their gross sales.
The major need is to bring in more plants,
an undertaking that ought not to prove too
difficult as industry generally is moving south.
In this, the industrial expert which it is pro
posed to employ would have the leading role.
His employment should not be unnecessarily
delayed, but should, instead, be speeded.
Declined With Thanks
If Admiral Husband E. Kimmel had accept
ed Secretary of the Navy, Forrestal’s offer
of a court martial trial at this time he would
have been caught in the crossfire of the Con
gressional Pearl Harbor inquiry. Naturally he
declined the offer, at least while this investi
gation is in progress, but left the way open for
a court martial, if he deems it advisable, al
some future time.
What we would like to emphasize in connec
tion with past, current or future inquiries of
Pearl Harbor is that no matter how many
are held none will be satisfactory that fails
to go to the root of the disaster, nor w.ll the
people of this country' be ■ placated by any
report thereon of which any portion is deleted
before being submitted for public perusal.
In the last analysis it is the people of the
United States who have had to pay the cruel
price for the Pearl Harbor attack and all the
suffering and death and expense that it pre
ceded. Having paid the price, they are en
titled to know all the circumstances, all the
blundering, that made it possible for a Japa
nese task force to approach Hawaii in ojen
waters without detection, and blast our de
fenses and fleet at will, shooting up our naval
craft with little or no steam in the boilers
and destroying planes on the ground in huddles
Instead of being scattered if they could not
go aloft.
These are things the “common man" should
know, as it was the common men of America
who made up the citizens’ army, manned the
fleets and warplanes that finally broke the
back of Japanese aggression, but not until
Pacific atolls had been dotted with grave
yards and the tremendous costs of the war
had been shouldered at home.
No single page of the Pearl Harbor record
should be withheld, regardless of whom it af
fects. If the Congressional investigation fails
in this, then the people, demanding the sanc
tion of government, should make their own
investigation, which by the very nature of the
investigating group, would have no political
or military implications.
Too Much For Us
It becomes more and more difficult to
understand Great Britain’s attitude on fi
nances. Particularly is it difficult to account
for the position taken by her representatives
now in this country with their hands out but
unwilling to sign a note for the money wanted.
They don’t want a loan, but an outright
grunt of from three to six billion dollars,
and they emphasize with great particularity
that they do not consider such a gift charity
but something that is their due.
We Americans have always had difficulty
understanding the British viewpoint, particu
larly when they were talking down to us as
country cousins with little sense and unman
nerly, but this time they have got us out over
our heads.
We have always assumed that a debt was
something to be paid and that money gifts
were charity. Now they tell us we are
cockeyed and the only way trade in the post
war world can be restored to normal is for
us to give them outright and without any
thought of repayment all the money they want
to get back into business in a big way and,
ii the past offers a precedent, in opposition
of our own trade programs.
Maybe it makes sense to the British, but
we are hanged if it does to us.
War Criminal
Fritz Kuhn’s deportation is justified by his
conduct in this country while he was still al
large. When he reaches Germany we cannot
think of any reasonable excuse for his not
being declared a war criminal and subjected
to trial as such.
Kuhn served Hitler as faithfully in this
country as a bund organizer as any German
served him in the Reich. His field of opera
tions was limited and his conviction and im
prisonment prevented him from committing
grave crimes against the state. But there is
no reasonable shadow of doubt that he would
have been a Quisling if opportunity had come.
Certainly he does not deserve to go free,
once he reaches Germany, to stir up trouble.
He is as unregenerate now as when he was
drilling oundists in secret in this country.
Competition in the postwar world will be
the most intense in our history. For nearly
every need or use, there will be many ma
terials. This means the buyer will again be
king. — John D. Biggers, president, Libbey

Today and Tomorrow
Thanks to those who gave their lives, and
to all who have suffered and toiled, the United
States has been delivered from its most dan
gerous enemies and has been raised to a
leading place of power and influence through
out the world. Their achievement is clear and
unmistakable amidst all the complications and
difficulties of the demobilization and the paci
fication in the wake of so great a war.
Never before have the young men of any
American generation had spread out before
them such a prospect of a long peace within
which there is so much they can do that is
useful and fascinating. There never was a
better time than this to be an American and
to be young, nor a more interesting one in
which to be alive. The time to come is pecu
liarly their own because they have themselves
earned it and done so much to make it pos
sible. They are^jiot merely the heirs of strong
er and more resolute forefathers but they are,
once again, a generation of explorers, discov
erers, and pioneers, who can become the
founders of good and enduring things. The
opportunity can, of course, be stupidly and
lazily missed. But if it is used, as it can
be, there is no reason to doubt that this cycle
of twentieth century wars is over, and that
Americans have at their disposal all that they
need in order to take a foremost part in
inaugurating an age that mankind will long
remember gratefully.
Great works are not for the faint-hearted
who doubt themselves. Yet only with that
humility which opens men’s minds to wisdom,
can greatness be understood. We have much
that we must learn to understand. When a
nation rises as suddenly as we have risen
in the world, it needs above all to measure
its power in the scheme of things. For it is
easier to develop great power than it is to
know how- to use it well. Wisdom always lags
behind power, and for the newcomer, which
is what we are, the lag is bound to be greater
than in an old established state where the
exercise of world power is a matter of long
experience and settled habit.
Even more than the Soviet Union, which is
now resuming its connection with Russia’s
past, the United States is the newest world
power. We have never been a world power
before, and we might say that in relation to
the world we are just now at the end of our
colonial experience and at the beginning of
the time when all great affairs are as a matter
of course American affairs. For isolationism,
as it has persisted in our day, is in essence
the view of the colonial who feels that the
great affairs of history are not for the likes
of him, and that he must live in a world
which is ruled mysteriously from afar by
others, who are shrewder if less righteous
than he is*
m m *
An awareness that the great power Ve now
possess is newly acquired is the best antidote
we can carry about with us against our moral
and political immaturity. There is no more
difficult art than to exercise great power well:
all the serious military, diplomatic, and eco
nomic decisions we have now to take will
depend1 on how correctly we measure our
power, how truly we see its possibilities with
in its limitations. That is what Germany and
Japan, which also rose suddenly, did not do;
those two mighty empires are in ruins because
their leaders and their people misjudged their
newly acquired power, and so misused it.
Our own position in the world is fully recog
nized, and our real interests are such that
they need never be hidden. But there are
many pitfalls for a nation which is not yet
accustomed to the exercise of great power. We
can be honest with ourselves, then, and recog
nize that nothing is so tempting as to over
estimate one’s own influence and to under
estimate one’s own responsibilities, to be more
interested in the rights than in the duties oi
a powerful state, and like so many of the
newly rich and just arrived to be jealously
fearful of losing privileges which, in fact, can
in the long run be retained only by using
them well. Nothing is easier, too, than to
dissipate influence by exerting it for trivial
or private ends, or to forget that power is
not given once and forever but that it has to
be replenished continually by the effort which
created it in the first place. The wisdom which
may make great powers beneficient can be
found only with humility, and also the good
manners and courtesy of the soul which alone
can make great power acceptible to others.
• • *
Great as it is, American power is limited.
Within its limits, it will be greater or less
depending on the ends for which it is used.
It is, for example, altogether beyond the limits
of any power we possess to dictate to any
one of our allies, even the smallest, how it
must organize its social and economic order.
We can preserve our own order if we improve
so that it produces progressively that greater
freedom and plenty which we believe it can
produce. By proving the results, not by de
claiming generalities and making threats, we
can offer an example which others may wish
to follow if and as they have the means to do
legal u 10 our military power, inciuaing
the atomic bomb, we must have no illusions
whatsoever. It is sufficient, if properly main
tained, to make the United States invulnerable
to conquest by any other nation. But no mili
tary power we can conceivably muster can
keep us secure if we dissolve our alliances,
if we provoke or permit the other great states
to combine against us. Friendly and reliable
neighbors on both sides of our ocean frontiers
are indispensable to our security and to our
peace of mind. It would be as childish as it
is churlish to think that because of the atomic
bomb, or the prodigious size of our industry,
we can now dismiss the friends with whom
we fought the good fight side by side.
Nor must we fall into the trap of imagining
that the devastating power we brought to bear
upon our enemies can be used to enforce
cur arguments with our allies. Our influence
is great, perhaps leading, but it is not com
mensurate with the alleged fact that we pos
sess a weapon which could, theoretically, kill
several hundred thousand people without no
tice and at one blow. If we are intelligent, we
shall never entertain such a monstrous delu
sion. We could no more use such a weapon in
such a way than we could hire thugs to assas
sinate foreign statesmen with whom we dis
agree. But if we allow fools among us to
brandish the atomic bomb with the idea that
it is a political argument, we snail certainly
end by convincing the rest of the world that
their own safety and dignity compel them to
unite against us. ^ ^ ^
Our power and influence will endure only if
we measure them truly and use them for the
emls that we have always avowed and can
proclaim with pride. We are the latest grea
power developed by and committed to the tra
v,. th~ west. We are among the bearers
nftWs tradition and we are numbered now
among its proudest defenders. That is the pole
t+Tr bv which we must set our course. At the

Like Dandruff On Collars, Newsmen’s
Grins Betray Their Vocation In Life
HONOLULU- Ml —The trouble
with being a newspaper man is it’s
like having dandruff—you can’t get
rid of it and you always wear it on
your sleeve.
When Morley Warren walked in
to the office, officially he looked
like Specialist 2-C Thomas
M. Warren, which is the moniker
he holds under Coast Guard aus
But his old friends at Albu
querque, N. M., where he used to
beat a typewriter to death for the
Associated Press, would recognize
the gleam in his eyes. He was
Morley of the old by-line days be
cause he had a story.
And when a newsman’s in that
shape, all you can do is aim him
at a typewriter and turn him loose.
So what follows is strictly Morley
Warren’s story and the manage
ment assumes no responsibility
The “Fubar Maru’’ is back from
the wars.
Less picturesquely known as the
LST (Landing Ship, Tanks) 71, she
is a battered, war-scarred veteran
of six Pacific invasions and more
than two years at sea.
She is manned by a Coast Guard
crew that looks like the military
edition of the “Dead End Kids”
and skippered by a two - fisted,
poker - playing Tammany Hall
Irishman . named Thomas A.
The greatest present ambition of1
Ruddy, also a veteran of the First
World War, is “to get back into
a derby and checkered suit.”
The LST 71 acquired the name
“Fubar” (key letter of the expres
sion “Fouled Up Beyond all Recog
nition’) and Maru (Japanese for
ship) at Okinawa.
That label was hung onto her
by Lieutenant Ruddy’s favorite
passenger, a Marine major who
let Ruddy ride his tank during the
Okinawa invasion.
“And what an invasion,” says
Ruddy. “I thought I’d surprise the
major and put a case of cold beer
in the tank.
“What does he do but comes out
for battle wearing kid gloves and
orders the Confederate flag flown
from the tank’s radio antenna.
“Then, off we go against the
enemy—me working the beer over
with a dry-ice fire extinguisher
and the major proud as hell with
that flag, which sure enough gets
shot off just as soon as we hit
the beach.
“What an invasion!”
It was also at Okinawa that the
unorthodox “Fubar Maru” was
fondly nicknamed “Task Force 71”
after she had to drop beh.'nd the
invasion convoy the first day out
of Ulithi. She steamed on, alone
and unescorted, to Okinawa.
“Huh,’ snorted Ruddy on that
occasion, “we don’t need an es
cort anyway. This ship’s got the
best crew afloat, bar none—and
I said bar none.” He brought his
| ham like fist down on his desk
! with a crash.
“Take Taylor,” he shouts, re
ferring to his youthful executive
officer, Lt. (JG) Eugene E. Taylor
of Wyandotte, Mich. “He’s rated
as one of the top ten anti-sut.ia-'
rine men in the Navy and Coast
Guard and I said top ten, not top
ten per cent.”
Ruddy also boasts that not a
man on his ship has been court
martialed since he’s been aboard
and that they all have unusually
high ratings.
“If they freeze one rating,” he
declares, “we dig out another.
That kid in the ship’s office had
been striking for Yeoman for al
most two years when I came
aboard. So they freeze Yeoman’s
rating. So I make the kid a car
penter’s mate.” he grins.
Although that system — strictly
adapted Com Tammanys methods
of rewarding the faithful one way
or another—pleases the men of the
“Fubar Maru,” it doesn’t always
bring huzzahs from headquarters.
“Most of the correspondence I
get from Washington.” comments
Ruddy, begins: ‘You can’t do this,
however—’ .
Ruddys crew set a record for
speedy unloading of LST’s during
its six invasions. His gunner
knocked down two Japanese sui
cide planes during unloading at
