world over. Ir-Ik of feeding the world fJid policing the world with armed forces at
Vyartine strongfch'is pure poppycock. The cost of such schemes with higher wages for \
striking workers, farmer’s lobbjdsts and over-prer-sure groups would banlcrupt us for
thouscinds of years to come. Better give the war torn counties the minimum possible
aid and help them to get on their feet as quickly as possible and to contribute our
share towards a world police force that will keep a close watch on Gremiany and Japan.
If we go Isolationist and try to do the whole job alone, v;e are headed for trouble.
Well thanks for letting me get this rather lengthy monologue, expressing one
soldiers idea of our post war policy, off my chest.

Maybe seme of you boys heard Mrs, Roosevelt .tell this joke on her recent trip to
Australia and some of the islands,
A soldier from Verrf.ont was looking verj^ down-in-the-mouth one day, so his Top-
Sergeant stopped and asked, "Vfli^ts the matter. Soldier", he replied, that he just
felt terrible, because he hadn’t killed a Jap end al3, of his Imdrlies had, so the Ser-
rt;j.nt said, ”Avj, thats easily remedied, just go up on that hill yonder, and yell. To
Hell v^ith Hirohito and some Japs are sure to stick their heads up and I promise you
wil3. get to ld.ll a Jap.” Next day, the Scr[;;eant sav/ the Scjne soldier, looking more
dejected than ever and asked if he didn’t get to kill a Jap, and he said, "V/ell Sarge,
I did exactly as you told me', a Jap stuck his head up and yelled, ”To Hell with Roose
velt" and you know dam well, I coulddi’t kill a good Republican like that,
First Sailor: "V/hy don’t you laugh when the Chief tells a joke?"
Second Sailor: "I don’t h?.ve to, I’m being transferred tomorrov/,"
Boatsw’ain to sailor: "Wipe that opinion off your face,"
"iVhere’s the first ser^'eant?". "He’s over in the barracks hanging himself," "Did you
cut him dov/n?" "No — he wasn’t dead yet,"
So pleased to meet you. Miss Guilder, M^r husbrjid has told me so little about you.
