For This War
By CHARLES P. STEWART
Central Press Columnist.
QUITE a controversy has broken
out, among authorities who pres
ently will start writing its history,
as to what our current war ought
to be called. The theory is that
wars are entitled to a name each,
such as will identify 'em all, sep
arately from one another.
Everybody understands perfect
ly what's meant by a reference to
our Revolutionary war. There's no
confusion when the Mexican war's
mentioned.. Our clash between the
states is variously termed our War
of Rebellion, our War of Secession
and our Civil war, but any one of
these designations is accurate
enough to be unmistakable. For
eign wars have been the same way
the Boer war, the Napoleanic
wars, the Thirty Years war, and
away back in the remotest past, to
the days of the Punic wars and
assorted spells of international
homicide. Ignoramuses may be a
bit uncertain concerning some of
the very early ones, but historians
tell 'em all apart without the slight
It took President Roosevelt to
raise the point that now, though,
we've fallen into the bad habit of
talking about World War I and
World War II.
His criticism hadn't had more
than sufficient time to get into
lyze our thinking to give the im
pression that the war was none of
our business; that no one would
dare to attack us; that our two
oceans would protect us; that,
anyway, Hitler had no interest in
the Western Hemisphere; that if
we would only refrain from doing
anything Hitler didn't like, Hitler
would leave us alone; that anyone
who warned us that Hitler meant
what he said was a warmonger;
that anyone who urged us to gain
time for our own defense by help
ing those who were already op
posing Hitler was trying to lead us
into war. The line is familiar
enough. It didn't fool the Amer
ican people. But it was picked
up and repeated by many groups
of Americans people who would
have been shocked to learn that
they were carrying the Nazi mes
sage." The pamphlet concludes: "We
know that Hitler, who acts like a
terror, is really the most frighten
ed man on earth. The upraised
arm, the shouting voice, the mighty
bluster, all mask a mortal dread of
the weapon that makes men free:
the truth. We are armed with the
truth, and we will crush the tyrant."
Retail Trade Head

Here's th&man whose decisions will
affect practically every person in
the U. S. It's Dr. Merle Fainsod.
Harvard professor, at his desk in

had begun proclaiming in chorus
that it was a point exceedingly
Not only, these gentry agree, is
the No. 1 and No. 2 differentiation
inelegant and sloppy, but look at
the confusion it ultimately will re
Oh, yes, we're able to distin
guish all right between so-called
World Wars Nos. I and II, both in
our own generation, but suppose
the ancients, in Old Testament
days or thereabouts, had started
off by recording War No. I and
then War No. II and so on indef
initely up to date. Why now we'd
be in the midst of War No about
1,000,000, and nobody could keep
the remotest track of the series
between the first and the mil
lionth. We fancy, according to the his
torians, that when we speak of a
war as a WORLD. WAR we've put
it into a different classification
from all other kinds, and as long
as we don't have more than two or
three of 'em, we can describe 'em
numerically so's to be understood
But what we forget, explain the
experts, is that ALL wars prob
ably are going to be worldwide
henceforward, and, a few centuries
ahead, the figure'll be so formid
able that school books won't be
able to make any sense out of.
President Roosevelt's scheme is
to choose a suitable World War II
name on the strength of a popular
contest, like picking a designation
for some new brand of soap or
breakfast food. Savants don't very
unitedly indorse this idea. They'd
prefer to make their own selection.
The trouble is that they don't put
forward a title that fits over-satis
factorily. The "War ir Defense of
Democracy" is proposed, but it is
lengthy and lacks pep, it's gener
ally conceded. Furthermore, "de
fense" isn't exactly the term de
sired. "OFF-ense" is more popu
lar. Yet even that won't look quit
right in historical literature in
2044 or later.
Besides, World War I remains to
be appropriately christened.
The Last War
Most American historians re
recorded it simply as "the World
War" until the latest strife broke
loose. European scribes usually
named it "The Great war." It was
"the European war" until the
United States cracked into it.
After that it ceased to be ex
clusively European. It wasn't any
greater or more worldwide than
this one, either, In fact, it wasn't
so much so.
President Roosevelt perhaps was
joshing when he called for a name
to fit the emergency, but the his
torians are serious. They're writ
ing letters to the newspapers and
breaking out into lecturers and ad
dressing themselves to college
They've got two wars on their
hands to get into text books, and
they've got to have compact pun
gent names to identify 'em by, and
the demand for the current war's
name is urgent.
Anybody with a good hunch on
the subject will be making a sub
stantial contribution to education
by .contributing it.
The War of What?
It must include a patriotic boost
for the democracies or a vicious jab
at the Axis or both, if a combina
tion of 'em is possible.

what can advertising do?
In 1917 during the last World War, this group continued to advertise
their products and services:
Phoenix Hosiery ,
Coca-Cola . i
and a host of others.
This group began new advertising ventures in 1917:
V U. S. Rubber Company
Pepsodent Tooth Paste
Wilson Sporting Goods
General Cigar Company
California Prune Growers Association
Lucky Strike Cigarettes '
California Walnut Growers Association
Del Monte Foods
and many others. , 1
This group quit advertising in 1917:
' . Pearline
. '.. Cottolene :
Pear's Soap 1 .
Sweet Corporal Cigarettes .
Some of them tried to stage comebacks later. They spent a lot of money
trying to recapture the public fancy but were unable to do so. Their
effort was wasted because new and aggressive companies had moved
in and won the public through advertising.
The same application could of course be made to local firms (now extinct)
which quit advertising in 1917 or since.
