INDIAN VALLEY RECORD Thursday, December 12, 1940 GENERAL HUGH S. JOHNSON UI~ lemt~ Washington Digest America Faces Grave Choice Between Isolation, Intervention Potholders You Can Make at Little Cost billions in war contracts. Our whole Financial Experts business system went into a coma Exchange Views Into these economic doldrums, the selected men were kicked--given "travel money" home and there abandoned. It created bitter resentment. The boys found that, while they had been away, somebody else had gotten their Jobs, made much more jack than they had and, in some cases, married their best girls--and they couldn't get work. Their govern. sent had taken them with glittering promises. They came home to find these were forgotten. The major complaint about this draft is that it is moving too slowly. The same sort of criticism in 1917 forced the war department into an almost fatal blunder, to order men to camps before they were ready to receive them. Let's not again be bums-rushed into that tragic error. It's a lot better to take whatever criticism there may be for not hay. ing proper housing, clothing and food and to tell our people the exact truth, than to try to cover it up at the expense of the health and wel. fare of these kids. It can't be cov- ered long. A new figure has appeared re- cently in Washington who is con- ducting a highly interesting shadow show in which conflicting viewpoints within the administration and out. side, play highly exciting roles. The man ts tall, quiet Milton Har- rison; one.time familiar as a discreet lobbyist in congressional corridors. now editor and publisher of the Sav- ings Bank Journal. He is gifted with an impish sense of humor as well as a keenly ana. Farm Income Farm cash income is declining seasonally, but the total com- pares favorably with 1939 figures Total from marketings and gov- ernment payments in the last quarter of the year may be slightly larger than in the fourth quarter of 1939. Total for the full year is tentatively estimated at 9.0 billion dollars, compared with 8.5 billion in 1939 As I stood looking at Mr. Roose- velt, his hair much grayer now, I could see the lines of care which the presidency burns into any active in- cumbent of that thankless post and I felt that he, too, might like to dodge these sessions. But by the time the conference was over, I was ready to change my mind. I heard his tired voice acquire its old ring and I watched the glint in his eye when he had parried an embarrassing query, not- ed the deliberate assurance with which he told an apt parable to illustrate a point he wanted to'drive home. Mr. Roosevelt may not love the newspapers hut I doubt if he is ready to abandon this informal con. tact with their representatives, no matter how much an inconvenience it my be, or "how 'difficult It' is to get over his side of the story to men not only trained to analyze every word, but ready to see some hidden meaning in every look and every gesture as well. a a Martin Dies wanted a million-dol. lap appropriation to pursue his in. vestigation of "fifth column" activi- tieS. It was rumored that he planned to take over certain work done by the trained operators of the depart. sent of Justice and that he would ask congress to vote him special powers. That is why the President in his letter to Mr. Dies emphasized the line between the investigative pew. era of congress under the Constitu- tion and the functions ot the execu- tive departments. For example, there is the course in physical education. Be McMillin tells me that at Indiana this is one of the harder courses, involving a good part of the training needed to finish in a medical school. These are things that, for the good of football, can be ironed out back of the curtain, in place of vague charges that carry no proof ot any mort. A Cornell or a Pennsylvania degree still ranks with any that | know about. The idea today, in too many quar. ters, seems to be that all winning teams must be made the targets for the beaten. College football, in many places, could use more of the sporting side. There is no law forcing any institu. lion to schedule football games with any suspicious rivals.' Tbe main purpose of football was supposed to be recreation and sport for sport's sake. It was never fn. tended as a part of Nero's schedule In the old Roman coliseum, It is a great game--one of the greatest--but it is also a game that is gradually developing entirely too many term[tic habitats in its own system. I still say it would be a far better game if every student in every col. lege and university were treated ex. actly the same as every other stu- dent in regard to proselyting, schol. arships, jobs and financial handouts. Then we'd have a true test of col- lege football ranking. I believe that this would prove itself a real boon to the game. Arc yon troubled with Biliousness -- Headaehe-- Ga~--C~onsUpation?

The "quarterback," as the President used to call himself, is now more in. terested in the "quarterdeck," and the factory.
