FORTUNATE SECOND THOUGHT
Probably we should rejoice in the report that delegates
conferring at Dumbarton Oaks have decided to give the
smaller nations a voice in establishing and maintaining peace
through international co-operation. Actually, we might be a
. trifle aghast to learn that they had strong notions to the con-
trary at first.
It has also been reported—all is reports, leaks and rumors
from this closed conference—that early drafts of the security
plan gave power of veto only to the four major powers. This
would have allowed these powers to requisition facilities and
troops from small nations without giving them a chance to
vote on or even discuss the decision. Happily, the delegates
seem now to have seen the light.
Some engineering problems tend to increase or develop
when a small working model is expanded to fullscale plant
operation. Perhaps the same is true in moving the machin-
ery of peace from a national to an international scale.
But it is hard to see how the diplomatic mind could have
departed quite so far from established principles of fairness
as they seem to have in their first draft of a world-wide se-
"ffhe first draft would not have been discermbly different
frlm a move in this country to refuse the representatives of
our less populous states the right to vote on a declaration of
war, and then to draft the soldiers of those states for the
armed forces. , ,
In short, the delegates’ early philosophy was. as one of
them is said to have eventually discovered, “taxation without
Maybe all this is undue worry about something that never
happened.5. But It is nevertheless disquieting. It is nice to
know that the idea of a virtual coalition of big powers has
been abandoned, and that small nations will not be voiceless
in any dispute between a small power and a great one. Yet
* it would have been nicer to know that the idea never came
l^Here, it seems to us, is one more argument for calling off
the guard at Dumbarton Oaks and letting the world know
what goes on there. Otherwise the conferring governments
must face the certainty that some of their citizens will make ■

secret session. *

REPORTORIAL INSTINCT , .
One of the most arresting quotes from the latest Quebec
conference came, to our mind, in the first days story when
Mr. Roosevelt called out to Mr. Churcihll, Eleanor is here,
was almost in the class of astronomical phenomena.
4 Except The trip to Monterrey in 1943, the orbits of our
L widely traveled chief executive and his peripatetic first lady
have not joined in recent years. .
Naturallv we don’t know what brought this conjunction
about. Blit we are inclined to credit it to the pournalistic
instinct of Mrs. Roosevelt, an industrious columnist. She has
seen the bottoms of coal mines and the Pacific fronts. She
has talked to share croppers and world leaders. She has
rubbed shoulders, to say nothing of noses, with many peoples.
But she never has had a first-hand, reportorial idea of what
is said and done at one of those Roosevelt-Churchill confer-
ences. . ,. ,,
Probably such a lack of coverage was just more than the
natural curiosity of a working newspaperwoman could bear.
SHAVEN AND SHORN
The Nazi government has ordered all able-bodied male bar-
bers and hairdressers to the front and has turned over do-
mestic shaves and haircuts to women. The Nazis have reason
to believe, from recent happenings in France, that several
battalions of Delilahs must have been snipping away at the
locks of the once-mightv Wehrmacht.
A lot of worms are turning now—to look for a chestnut.
There seems to be no question but that Hitler will go i
down in history—at least six feet.

IRE’S IWASrOV TEAM
Tl/TEET Ike’s “Invasion Team" os
it directs the invasion of
Europe by air, sea, and land.
General Sir Arthur Tedder,
Deputy Commander in Chief un-
der General Eisenhower, is a
Scot, 54 years old, described as
"small and soft-spoken." Son of
a nobleman, he is in direct con-
trast to Ike. He was graduated
from Cambridge and for a time
played professional Rugby. A
veteran of World War I, a flyer
in France and Egypt, he settled
down for life with the RAF, where
he .became Air Chief Marshal.
His record in World War II has
made him one of the greatest air-
men of all times. It was under
him that the RAF gained com-
mand over the Mediterranean and
in the Middle East.
The keen-eyed, strong-featured
man beside him is 61-year-old
Admiral Sir Bertram H. Ramsey,
commanding the combined naval
forces under General Eisenhower.
Son of a general, married to a
colonel’s daughter, his life has
been devoted to the navy since
lie was 15 years old. The tre-
mendous responsibility falls upon
him to transport safely across the
English Channel to the fortified
coasts of Europe the huge armies
engaged in the invasion. Known
as “Dvnamo" Ramsey, he brought
about the miracle of Dunkirk.
When Eisenhower made his
landings in North Africa, it was
Ramsey who helped plan the
landings and shared in command
Of the great armada of warships.
He also was with Eisenhower in
the Mediterranean when Sicily
and Italy were invaded.
Salute the stern, strong face set
with determination — Lieut.-Gen.
Carl A. Spaatz, known as “Tooey”
Spaatz, commanding the Amer-
ican Strategic Air Forces on the
Western European invasion. Born
in Pennsylvania 52 years ago. he
was at West Point with 'Eisen-
hower, graduating in 1914, one
year before Ike. “Tooey" com-
manded the Northwestern African
Air Force under Eisenhower.
His job is to cover the Allied
Forces on the invasion.
The genial, smiling countenance
we now look upon is a "devil on
wings”—Maj.-Gen. James H. Doo-
little, age 48, born in California,
in command of the United States
8th Air Force. The first to raid
Tokyo, he gained world fame.
He was widely known as a racing
pilot and stunt flyer before we
entered the war, also as an aeio-
With the outbreak of world
War II, he entered the struggle
as a major and in two years be-
came a brigadier general. Under
Eisenhower in Africa, he organ-
ized and led the 12th Air Force,
whose exploits are almost legen-
dary. They blasted the way for
the ground forces with their raids
on Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, and were
the first to bomb Rome.

TVFOW meet the man who says,
..j>m from Missouri, show
me!” Lieut.-Gen. Omar N. Brad-
ley, 51 years old, leading the
American ground forces under
Eisenhower. This “Missouri mule"
in determination is one of Ike s
old friends and classmates at
West Point. An accomplished
master of ground warfare am.
infantry tactics, he was Eisen-
hower's field aide in North Africa
and then commander of the
American Second Corps.
We need no introduction to the
wiry little man, wearing a beret
jauntily on his head. He is
■Monty,” Gen. Sir Bernard L.
Montgomery, loved by every man
who ever fought under him. He
commands the British Invasion
Armies under Eisenhower. "Monty
of E! Alamein” is 56 years old, a
minister’s son. His miltary fame
was established when, in com-
mand of the British Eighth Army,
lie outfoxed Rommel and chased
him with his Alrika Korps across
the North African deserts, 1400
miles, from §gypt to Italy.
The next man we meet looks
like the executive of a great cor-
poration, the banker-business
man-lawyer type, Sir Trafford L.
Leigh-Mallory, 55 years old, Com-
mander in Chief of the Allied Aii
Forces. He gave up the study
of law to join and help build the
British Air Force and won his
wav to Air Chief Marshal.
The ceaseless air invasions over
Europe, preceding the land in-
vasions. were directed by Sir

hower’s “Invasion Team” is a

Sir Arthur T. Harris, 52 years
old father of four children, and
known as “Ginger" Harris. He
commands the British Strategic
Air Forces. While he serves under

is the destruction of Hitler’s war-
production centers. The bombing
raids under Harris testify to his

AS hours and days passed, with
■ ceaseless bombing rising to a
crescendo in its terrifying might,
the “invasion jitters" seized Eu-
rope. , ,
Huge Nazi armies were rushed
to the fortiiled coast and stood
behind their embattlements, wait-
ing for Eisenhower. The people
of France, Belgium, Holland, Den-
mark, Norway, with their under-
ground leaders ready for upris-
ings, counted the hours, waiting
Zero hour was approaching. “It
i:t now about five minutes to 12
c, clock," the announcement came
from Allied Headquarters. Gen-
eral Eisenhower inspected his stu-
pendous forces and issued the final
warnings. He was ready, waiting
only the psychological moment to

the final result,” he said. “It will
