Fine Maneuver Conduct Shown ^^28 ooo
By US Forces 1st AD Corps
Quite a few reports have come to The Times concerning the cour
tesy of soldiers engaged in the current Army-Air Force maneuvers—
aarticularly courtesy to automobilists held up by the military operations.
This is especially true concerning the recent paratroop drop near Cou-
shatta and the immediately following counter attack by mechanized
ground forces a "battle" that had quite an effect on highway I and
highway 71 traffic for several hours. But the soldiers did everything pos
sible to move civilian traffic as quickly as they could and they were
especially courteous to women drivers.
The same commendation goes to the large number of soldiers who
spent Thanksgiving weekend in Shreveport under the special 12 and 24
lour passes issued to the combatant troops. They were behaved and
conducted themselves as gentlemen. They not only acted like good sol
diers—using the word "good" in its description of their personal con
duct—but they looked like good soldiers—using the two words in their
application to military bearing.
An army is simply a cross section of civilian population—it has its
share of fine men and its share of those who belong in opposite cate
gories. T.urn 1000 young male civilians loose upon any town or city
suddenly for recreation—as was the case with Shreveport Thanksgiving
Day—and it would be only natural to expect some disorder. Yet when
1000 young men in uniform were turned loose upon this city last week
there was hardly a complaint of any kind—except from the military
police who did seem a bit upset that they had nothing to do.
All of this is fine tribute not only to the men but to the training
they receive in military service and it is an excellent answer to the con
tention sometimes raised that "you can't have military maneuvers with
out there being a lot of trouble between the uniformed personnel and

On November 30th Sir Winston
Churchill celebrated his 81st birth
day. Born in 1874 at Blenheim Pal
ace he was reared in the Victorian
era and is perhaps the last of the
great statesmen. R. L. Taylor au
thor of Winston Churchill: An In
formal Study of Greatness calls
him "a man of multiple genius who
will be devotedly remembered as
of the most exasperating fig
ures of history." The very features
which brand Churchill the product
of another age are an index of his
greatness. His breadth and grasp
of total situations in their histori
cal perspective as well as specific
events and their implications which
reverberate and ricochet like
echoes cannot be too highly valued
in the "age of specilization."

mental simplicity his satire which
often takes one off guard only to
register suddenly with devastating
effect. His method is often that of
ironical praise ("for Brutus is an
honorable man"). With his dramat
ic' power Churchill would have
made an admirable demagogue
were he not a statesman.
The Churchillian prose has serv

has in his speeches. Three of his

Churchill is not only a statesman
he's a politician so it's fortunate
that to top off his other qualities
he's extremely photogenic. He's

time siren suit giving the "V fori
victory" sign to his beleagered peo
ple is an unforgettable picture.
