Fifth Col Ulll HI*/*
Those who are "courting" Hitler with the con
viction that he has no aspirations in this part of
the world should read Hon Wright Patman's
remarks in the Congressional Record of June
It is self-evident that Hitler is well represent
ed in the high ranks of our fighting forces, that
through one Lieutenant Colonel Carl Byoir he
has gained a strong foothold in key positions
in our defense and in our industrial set-up.
We may consider our position secure, hut the
following charge supported by sworn testi
mony and cited by the Texas representative in
Congress, are very serious in their nature:
First That the German consul in New York,
soon after Hitler went into power in 1933, hired
Lt. Col. Carl Byoir, who was then a lieutenant
colonel, to disseminate Nazi propaganda in
America, and paid him a very large sum of mon
ey in cash for that purpose.
Second. That soon thereafter Lt. Col. Carl By
oir commenced to send out Nazi propaganda
on a large scale and received two and three
thousand dollars a month therefor without a
Third. That on October 1, 1933, Lt. Col. Carl
Byoir entered in to mi 18 month contract that
was approved by Hitler's Minister of Propa
ganda for $6,000 a month.
Fourth. That a congressional committee un
animously reported, after investigating this
contract, that it was for the purpose of getting
Lt. Col. Carl Byoir to disseminate Nazi propa
ganda in this country
Fifth. That George Sylvester Viereck, noted
conspirator against this country in the first
World War. was a silent partner of Lt Col. Carl
Byoir and that he, George Sylvester Viereck,
went to Germany and personally conferred with
Hitler in order to get a contract for Lt Col. Carl
Byoir to represent tin Nazi Government in this
country. Viereck is now registered by the De
partment of State here as a representative of
There were other charges and plenty of proof
to support them, and for that reason I cannot
understand why the Secretary of War does not
immediately dismiss this man from the United
States service and take such further action as
the facts warrant.
It is now generally known that Hitler had in
mind getting as many of his "fifth columnists"
in our-Army and Navy as possible.-There -is
plenty of sworn testimony to the effect that
"fifth columnists" were smuggled into this
eountry during the time that Lt. Col. Carl Byoir
was personally very active in Hitler's behalf
and many, many aliens swore falsely in order
to become privates in National Guard units in
New York-City and in other places. The set-up
looked good for Hitler, having at least une
man in a very high branch of the service, Lt.
Col. Carl Byoir, and many men in the ranks
of the National Guard.
In addition, Lt. Col. Carl Byoir is reputed to
represent the biggest interests in this Nation;
in fact, he says himself he represents Ameri
half billion dollars. If he does, and they are the
same type concerns that he is generally known
to represent, he has been in a position to ex
ert considerable influence in the hiring of alien
personnel by these concerns in every State,
county, city, and community in our land
I wonder how many of these alien employees
were slipped into our country and who are
now known to be "filth columnists" were plac-'"
ed in employment by the clients of Lt. Col. Carl
Henry Ford, The. Individualitt
Henry Ford, despite his great contribution
to American industry, is nothing but an indi
vidualist whose efforts have been patterned af
ter his own thoughts irrespective of the facts ga
thered from the many. Plainly speaking, Mr.
Ford is hard-hearted. For him there Is only am
way?the Ford way. And the trouble about it
all, he has amassed so many dollars from every
community in the land and in many other parts
of the world that he can support his own way.
The question then is Mr. Ford .doing the best
for hi* country? Millions of Americans can't
understand why he would refuse to manufac
ture planes far England. It is just the old Ford
way ,and he doesn't even have to tell why he
won't do it.
And now Mr. Ford launches a "National
Youth Movement" of his own. In addition to
his genius in the industrial world, he steps ov
er into another one and would enforce his views
and opinions there. While he steps into the
spotlight with his youth movement, he pays lit
tle attention to the lot of his tens of thousands
of workers in his plants where he would deny
them the right to bargaining He would rule
them with an iron hand there, and talk about
freedom and opportunities for youth.
Mr. Ford could do much more by cooperat
ing with youth agencies, by contributing his
thoughts there and by working on a nation
wide scale rather than take a handful of youths
and spend thousands of dollars for a plan that
will not begin to support itself.
The motor magnate is' one of few to succeed
by rugged individualism In the industrial world.
That his individualism will survive in his pres
ent venture as a builder of airplanes and as a
leader of youth movements is quite doubtful.
.Vye Should Retign
Gerald Nye, one of 96 United States Senators,
steps forward with the demand that President
Roosevelt should resign. Who is this Senator
with the daring impudence to demand the
President of the United States to resign? He
represents a territory with a fairly large Ger
man following. He is a Republican and an iso
lationist. and his latest words and demands
would indicate he is a ranking member of the
fifth column in the United States.
It would appear that Senator Nye and others
of his class are not so much concerned in the
fate of the United States, its people and world
civilization as they are in helping Hitler kill
innocent people and demoralize the known
The people of the United States are back of
President Roosevelt, and since Mr. Nye is try
ing to ram his fifth column talk down the
throats of the vast majority he should resign
his seat in the Senate and get out of the coun
try for the sake of harmony.
llillkic Tickles The Ticker
Hardly had Mr. Wendell Lewis Willkie been
nominated as the Republican Presidential stan
dard-bearer before the act started tickling the
ticker tapes in Wall Street. As head of a great
utility empire, Mr. Willkie was seen as a savior
hv those who would hnns't rates and inrreuse
profits to the stockholders.
The reaction recorded by the stock market
is hardly chargeable to the presidential nomi
nee, however, and in fairness to him the pub
lic should await his campaign declarations.
Turning to personal qualifications, the com
mon people see in Mr. Willkie a greater strength
than could have been found in either Dewey
or Taft in championing the cause of the G. O.
P. Whether the Republican standard-bearer will
champion the rights of the people will only be
known as the campaign progresses, and then it
is quite likely he may never have the oppor
tunity to champion the rights of the people in
Mr. Willkie got the nomination in Philadel
phia last week apparently against the wishes
of the G. p. P. conservative element, but the
fact that he is wrapped up in a huge electrical
mesh heartens others who have been exposed
to the consumers of electricity during the past
If ihe Republican Party attempts, as rumors
say it will, to wage the coming campaign, on
the ground of "Keep Us Out of War" and by
painting the President as a war monger bent
on getting us into the struggle which is none
of our business, it will deserve to be blasted
into oblivion once and for all. And we think it -
will be. For it will have demonstrated that there
is no energy and no courage and no honesty
left in it, that its greatest value is pure parti
sanship, and that to gain their ends its ruling
leaders are perfectly willing to gamble with the
destiny of America.
The people of this country now know that
the claim that the struggle trr Europe is "none
of our d business" (Isolationist Hugh John
sons phrase, not ours) is the most dangerous de
lusion ever fobbed off on us. And anybody who
thinks he can resurrect it, to the end of getting
into office, is mistaken. Anybody who tries it
deserves nothing but to be blasted out at pub
lic life at the ballot box.
There is only*one way in which anybody can
undertake at present to promise at present to
keep us out of war. And that is quite simply
by undertaking to make a deal with Hitler un
der which Latin-America would be handed
over to his influence, the bases surrounding us
given us, the American economy tied to his, and
the American Government and way of life
Nazified. And the good sense of the people is
well aware of It.
The Republican convention will be well ad
vised to ignore the counsel of the die-hard pro
fessional politicians who are attempting to
stampede it into this thing and to heed its en
lightened leaders, such as Col. Frank Knox.
Fidelity is simply daring to be true in small
things as well as great.?Henry Van Dyke.

community had to buy their own

to buy their seed. This year forty
four acres of very fine clover is be
