Back In Style
In Many Forms
By CHARLES P. STEWART
(Central Press Columnist)
WASHINGTON. So far as
large scale conquest is concerned,
military men agree that this isn't
an era of informal fighting. Huge
armies are the order of the day,
with oodles of training, thousands
of ponderous tanks, countless tons
of assorted heavy artillery and am
munition, and an infinity of tech
nical skill to manipulate 'em.
Such massing of strength are
required to overrun various coun
tries or fractions of 'em, first beat
ing down all concentrated opposi
Subsequently, though, the guer-
ila period's arrived at. Elmer Da

formation has been investigating it
on the strength of reports espe
cially from the Balkans and from
Jap-occupied areas in China. The
oretically these regions are under
subjection. In fact, however, their
bands of only semi-organized snip
ers are a worse pest to the nomi
nal victors than are big forces in
opposition to 'em. An Axis army,
in battle with a foe that stands up
against it and permits itself to be
annihilated, isn't such a problem.
Being licked, it's LICKED. But
swarms of guerillas, raiding and

regardless of the consequences,

The plane is referred to as a
mechanized recent development.
Well, so it IS mechanized, but
isn't it a guerilla-esque mechani
zation? The OWI thinks so.
Air raids by the British over
Nazily-occupied continental Europe
surely were guerilla-esque per
formances. Their purpose wasn't
to occupy any enemy positions im
mediately. Their aim simply was
to harass the enemy beyond his

Balkans. Ditto that Doolittle scoot

In short, the guerilla business is
a reversion to old methods, hither

Speaking of the plane:
What that thing will do to civil
life after the war's over is liable
to be a caution.
Just now it's entirely monopo
lized for military purposes, but it's
due to come into its civilian own
as soon as it's turned loose over
the world as soon as it's released
for ordinary passenger and com
mercial transportation usage.

I can remember when anybody
who got into one of 'em considered

a garage, wood house, chicken house, or other out

IN FACT Vv"
It is a good time to repair and remodel. Materials

made his home with Mr. and Mrs.
R. W. Teague. He made many

Editor The Mountaineer:

been complete. He writes about
our beloved state in such an in
formal way that you have the feel
ing you are sitting in a comforta

When I finished reading the book,
I decided to drive over to the lake,
where the Daniels are spending the
summer in their cottage, and see
if Mr. Daniels would autograph
his book for me.
My husband and I were greet

At her cheery call, Mr. Daniels
soon joined us wearing a black
suit and the familiar bow tie. He
didn't : look any older than the
middle sixties; his step was firm
and his hand steady when he
wrote in his book, "To Gertrude
RuBkin with the regards of the au
thor, Josephus Daniels."
My husband recalled an inspec
tion trip that Mr. Daniels made to
Newport, Rhode Island during the
first World War. This reminded
Mr. Daniels of a similar inspec
tion trip he made to Chicago dur

train was over an hour and a half
