Even though it probably is true that the Ameri
can pmple are not as informed as they should be on
many public questions, there is no doubt but that
there is more enlightened people per square mile in
the U.S.A. today than ever before in history.
Reason for this unquestlonably is the easy ac
cess people have to information. By way or news
papers and magazines, radio news brOadcasts and
comments, and organs of propaganda, everybody
these days has an opportunity to inform himself if.
he wants to.
One of the questions in the forefront of public
consideration is the unification of our armed forces.
On that subject we have one idea angle from the
“Industrial News Review,” the editorial service of
organized big business. And while we don’t always
- agree with the views of this prOpaganda effort, we
often find food for thought in its discussions. Oni
the question of unification of our armed services, it I
“Nearly two years ago, congress passed a law‘
called the national security act of 1947. Its purpose!
was “to provide a comprehensive program for the;
future security of the United States.” Under this
law, steps have been taken to improve the organiza
tion and the efficiency of the nation’s military estab
lishments. Unfortunately, the notion is widely held.
tn .ne intent of congress in passmg the law was the
outright and immediate unification of the 'armed
forces. For example, the public has been given the
impression that the national security act intends
that we shall have one air force and only one, and
that the Navy violates the soirit of the law in not
turning over all its air activities to the department
of the air force.ln reality, the ,law states iust the
opposite, by directing congress =to .prOvi'de three
military departments for the operation and admin
istration of the army and navy (including naval
aviation and the marine corps), and the air force.
It clearly states that the purpose is to provide for
the authoritative coordination of these agencies and
unified direction under civliian control but not to
merge ”them. .
“Senator Gurney, chairman of the armed service
cammittee, points out that neither the navy alone,
the air force alone, nor the army alone is capable of
- supplying the needed military strength of the United
States. If congress believed one of them could, it
would have taken steps to eliminate the other two
in the interest of e onomy. That this was not done
testifies eloquently to congressional opinion concern
ing the need for all three branches.
“Naval aviation is the heart of the modern navy.
It is a highly specialized branch of the military ser
vices. It reouires a type'of flying alien to any other
aviation activity. And it is significant that the
Hoover commission, in studying the entire govern
ment structure, including national security, has re
jected the idea of merging naval aviation with the
air force. .
“If ever there was a time when the citizen and
the voter must exert himself to obtain accurate in
formation on public issues, it is now. The controversy
over so-called unification of the armed services is a
case in point. The real objectives are efficiency,
economy, and mmtary preparedness. Unification
should not become a catch word to trip the unwary.

Of all the infections to which man falls heir, none 'eiceeds the
lowly common cold in importance to health and welfare.
The average person suffers one to four colds each year. Since
each attack of the common cold lasts five days on an average, it may
be estimated the common cold accounts for 40 to 50 percent 02 at.
