Connally Stes U. S.

By the Associated Press.

Foreign Relations Committee said

there rather than a mere delaying
Senator Connally said this, to
gether with the reorganization of
the arms production machinery and
the prospect that 21 Latin American
nations would join in breaking off
diplomatic and economic ties with
Axis powers, contributed to an en
couraging picture of developments.
The Senator told a press confer
ence this country could not afford
to neglect the Pacific for war in
any other part of the world. He
said the Navy’s sinking of five Jap
anese transports and cargo vessels
illustrated the kind of results he
and others wanted to see there.
“We can’t go off and leave the
Pacific theater alone,” he declared.
“If we did. the Japs would be in
Australia soon. If we neglected the
Pacific, the Japanese would be apt
to so solidify their points of conquest
that it would take a long and dreary
war to get them out. It seems to
me imperative that we should con
tinue naval activity in the Pacific
with increased vigor and energy.”
If Japan became strongly en
trenched in strategic points of the

sia might be discouraged from mov

Colored Lawyers Insist
Race Backs War Effort'
The Washington Bar Association,
organization of colored lawyers here,
has condemned a declaration by a
New York conference of colored
leaders recently that colored people
are not "unreservedly” supporting,
the war effort.
At a meeting at the Musolit Club
Thursday night, the local associa
tion passed a resolution listing three
specific ways in which the colored
population is supporting the war
The statement from New York was
issued last week by the Allied Coun
cil of National Organizations. The
members defeated by a vote of 31
to 4 a resolution stating that it was
the sense of the group that "colored
people are wholeheartedly and un
reservedly all out in support of the
present war effort.”
Scoring the action of this
self-appointed and self-constituted
body,” the Washington association
pointed to the colored persons' sup
port of civilian defense, their pur
chase of defense bonds and stamps,
and their co-operation in the Sele<*-1
tlve Service organization.
"The Washington Bar- Association
has from time to time condemned'
unfair and discriminatory policies
and has insisted upon a complete
integration of all elements of the
population in all efforts connected
with the defense effort, including
governmental service,” the resolu
tion stated. "The association will
continue to do^this and will con
tinue to insist upon the elimination
of all barriers due to race, creed,
color or national origin. Yet at
the same time the Washington Bar
Association feels it c-annot sit idly
by and permit to go unchallenged,
such afl impugning of the proven
loyalties of some 14,000,000 citi
The resolution was .offered by a
committee headed by Thurman L.
Dodson. Henry L. Johnson, Jr.,
association president, presided.

Good Food Excels Radio.
Good food—soldiers' "spirits rise
when their gastric juices have been
stimulated," was declared more im
portant than radio programs. Pride,
both in one's self and In one's ogani
sation, was placed before theaters.
Above all, the general said, “re
member that our country is at war *
and that every day shall be used to
a maximum to train the men in
their respective tasks and make
them <feel that what they are doing
Is a great contribution to victory.”
He recognized the Importance of
the hostesses, the entertainment
and other diversions in the life of
the soldier, but asserted they were
given undue emphasis.
Spartan Lives Emphasised.
“When the* Army began its ex
pansion much Influence, chiefly
from civilian sources, was exerted
to make the transition of the
selectee from civilian life to Army
life as painless as possible with in
sistence that he be provided with
the comforts and entertainments
identified with civilian life," be
"The writers were unaware of the
fact that armies in order to be ef
fective must lead Spartan lives.
“Undue emphasis was, therefore,
placed on radio programs, recrea
tional buildings, hostess houses,
hostesses, movie stars and like di
versions, as if these amusements
were the panacea for good morale
or the antidote for poor morale.
“External aids may add to good
morale, but they cannot of them
selves produce it.”
