Since I had heard nothing except indirect re marks I gave her a negative an swe. But the more I think about North River and its protected deep harbor traffic and also the absence of draw bridges would be a most important factor worth consider ing. SPEAKING OF the Navy I have a great deal of respect for the boys who enlist in same. I have never heard a U. S. Navy man say that they disliked being a sailor. As matter of fact most of the boys seem to be proud of the fact that they are in this great fighting force of our nation.

This is quite different from some of the angles I have heard from Selectees. Some Selectees need something I don't know what to make them have more respect for the military force in which they are serving. Perhaps a bit of War would help matters out and don't laugh Mr. and Mrs War just like the "good times" of Mr. Hoo ver's era are just around the cor ner That "just around the cor ner" idea may work out in this age just as it worked out when Mr. Hoover was telling the world about what was just around a corner. . Perhaps we will never get around the corner. However if I had to predict what is going, to happen I would say: "WAR AFTER THE AUTUMN MANEUVERS" and I am talking about a War that is going to call an American Expe ditionary Force to a foreign land for scrapping. It is ridiculous to think that we don't want to start shooting until attacked. Get them on the other side that is our idea and see if our Government does not share a similar idea about the time the Autumn maneuvers in this nation are ended.
