Strike Over Food;
Get Bread, Water
Ey the Associated Press.
CAMP PICKETT, Va„ April 10.—
Having refused to work because
they claimed they weren't properly
fed, 248 German prisoners now are
on a bread-and-water diet.
, The prisoners, all naval men. are
at the Lindhurst Branch Camp near
Col. A E Potts. Camp Pickett
commander, said the prisoners had
been receiving the properly pre
scribed diet when they refused to
He added the bread-aiod-water
diet would continue until the men
conform to the routine set up for
them. The discipline is a part of
the “no work, no eat" policy of the
Army, under the Geneva Conven
“—the only sound policy for a democracy!”
rrH REGARD to the question of rendering Communists and
Communist sympathizers eligible for Army commissions,
we support the War Department position as reported in the press
that in granting commissions and making various other Army as
lignments "the basic consideration is not the propriety oj the indi
vidual's opinions; but his loyalty to the United States.” Any
position short of this would constitute a denial of constitutional
rights, would fail to utilize all qualified soldiers and would under
mine national unity. • The question of what one thinks of Com
munist philosophy is not involved. The issue is one of full utilization
oq a democratic basis of all forces dedicated to winning the war.
Using this as a yardstick, the Army has apparently taken its posi
tion as a result of the excellent record of Communists and so-called
Communists including a number who have been cited for gallantry
and a number who have died in action. • The War Department'*
order is common sense and the only sound policy for a democracy.
It carries out our country’s stated policies of unity of all forces se
riously supporting the war effort. It is consistent with our close
cooperation with the Soviet Union and with other United Nations
members, whose governments include Communists, for winning
the war and building a durable peace.
