‘Bad for Morale'
ALLIED commanders, it seems, are out of patience with
the “pessimistic” stories about the battle lor the Anzio
beachhead. So corres|M>ndents in the battle area may no
longer use radio for on-the-spot stories trom the lionl.

It’s all a bit puzzling. It seems only day bet ore yes-
terday that we were being scolded for complacency. New,
apparently, that frowned-upon complacency is being pro-
tected against the rude shock of gloom.
Back of this paradox is undoubtedly the familiar of-
ficial argument that this. that, or the,other is “bad for
morale." The feeling seems to la- that complacency is had
for morale, and so is pessimism. So also is any public sus-
picion of domestic tiffs in the family of the united nut-
ions, which accounts for the recent report of new, tighter
British censorship of American correspondents’ stories
touching on American foreign relations—a censorship based
on lKilicv, not security.
* * «
pitOBABLY the worst thing for morale is inconsistency.
and we have had a good bit of that recently. We have
heard the Anzio situation described by President Boose-
veil as tense. We have been told by Mr. Churchill that all
was going well; counseled by Secretary of War Stimson
to “keep mir shirt on:” assured by General Alexander ttint
the beachhead invaders would smash through to Rome
without help from the army at Cassino.
In a breader field there is General Eisenhower’s an-
nouncement that Germany will he beaten in 1914, if every-
one at home does his full part. Field Marshal Dill says.
“Victory is certain, but none can estimtte the time the
effort or the sacrifice that will be needed." Vice President
Wallace tells us we are "over the hump." We can still lose
the war in the Pacific, Admiral Yates Stirling declares.
$ * *
VATUKALLY. the surface temperature of morale changes
with the hoi nnd-cnld progress of events and pronounce-
ments. This is inevitable. Many official statements are
aimed to turn public feeling in the direction most desirable
at the moment. Contradictions may arise from specialized
interest, insufficient knowledge; or probably, on occasion,
the state of the speaker’s liver.
Most Americans, despite the few and well-publicized
exceptions, are confident of victory, ready to sacrifice for
it, prepared for the slow and bloody process of achieving
it. To tell them the whole truth, bitter or not, may hold
lungers. But it i sureh preferable to tellii ml. £ LcSSOd 111 ElUjI'Sfl

Many home owners put off
planting shade trees year after
year, to their own disappointment.
It takes years to produce a good
ornamental tree and the initial
cost is relatively small but it is
impossible to pay enough to buy
years of wasted time.
There arc a great many homes
with no shade trees, or a lew old
deteriorated ones. Black locust
was one of the trees that was
planted by early settlers both In
the country and in town. These
trees irew rapidly at first and in
most cases have survived their
usefulness. Every year hundreds of
these die and when they are dead
they create a lnzard to iieople and
livestock as well as making a place
to harbor insects and diseases
which damage live trees.
Folks having old black locust,
maple, cottonwood, poplar and any
other trees that have begun to
die In the tops or have been
damaged by storms or attacked by
borers should think of replacing
them with new stock It is not
necessary to cut out the old tree
first. It is probably desirable to
plant tlie new tree and let it grow
a year mr two before taking nut
the old one. Black locusts make
good fence posis and all of these
worn out shade trees will tnakp
A good ornamental trep has a

trees between now and Arbor day.
