(Army) PAGe -tNE many, but Canadians have no quarrel with German nmsicians, whether mod- ern or classic, says Dr. George Mc- Manus, professor of music on the Los Angaeles campus of the University of California and lecturer in music appre- ciation for the University's Extension Division. Dr. MeManus has jnst re- turned from a stay of several months in Victoria, B. C. "N0ticed no feeling whatever in Canada against the German composers. One pr.ogram given at the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers gather- ing which I attended in Victoria was wholly given over to compositions by such German composers as Wagner and Brahms, and many numbers were sung in German. Certainly the situa- tion today differs from that during the last war when the work of Richard Strauss, who had sounded a manifesto sympathetically interpreting Gernmny's war aims, and the works of several other composers of his type were banned for a while both in Canada and the United States," McManus said. "No matter how furious hostilities may become, I doubt whether the feel- ing engendered du.ring the first World War with regard to German composers will be seen. Perhaps it is because all the German composers of any import- ance have, either for racial or political re~s0ns, been banned from Germany and are residents on the American con- tinents. Certainly there is no use in blaming writers of the German classics for what cBismark and his successors enforced upon the w6rld," the Univer- *icy of ~alifornia professor says. DEFENSE BOND QUIZ Q? Just what is inflation and how ,can it is minimized ? Answer: Inflation i.s a decrease, in the buying power of the dollar caused by a rising cost of living. This, in turn, i~ brought about by a heavy public de- qman~l, resulting from a rapid increase :jka .the national income, for things which ~cannot be produced in the national in- ' come, for things which cannot be pro- duced in large enough quantities. Every citizen can help minimize inflation by buying Defense BOnds and Stamps. Q.: How can I get cash for. my De- fense Savings ,Stamps if I should need to redeem them? A.: Go to any postoffice. Note--To buy Defense Bonds and Stamps, go to the nearest postoffice, CA'NAJDIANS STILL THE MARK OF MUNICH WANT GERMAN MUSIC U. C. PROFESSOR FINDS Three years ago, an old man wit.h~a black umbrella stepped from a plane Canada may be at war witlr Ger- =~?'L'Bndorr's Croydon'airport. Waving a paper, he said: "It means peace in our time !" Chamberlain had colne back from Munich! Today Chamberlain is dead, and a million others have died with him. Men have died in the sloshing mud of a Russian Jail. Men have died in the waves of the Atlantic. Men have died in the air, plunging, dropping, falling, their bodies twisted by the agony of a dive into the unknown. The mark of death is on the world, the mark of Munich. In the three years since that day, death has checked off the old man from Birmingham and the sons and daughters of a million other old men of Lon0on and Kiev. This is the tragedy he worked to avert. This is the dark mantle he sought to turn back with his umbrella and his pen. This is the disaster he read in the signs by the side of the road. And who can say whether he was right or wrong? Did Munich mean fewer deaths or more ? Did Munich mean a greater disaster or less ? Did Munich mean time for England to arm, or time for Germany to become in- vTncible ? Was Munich a reprieve or a death sentence ? The full answer to those questions is a theme for history, but at least this much is clear of its meaning. Force knows no equal bu.t force! The hen of appeasement is no match for the fist of war! In this year o~f war, three candles light the birthday cake of appease- merit. A million crosses mark the fields of the old world. They are the marks of Munich! Soldier (in hospital): "Doctor, are you sure this is pneumonia.?"Some~ times doctors prescribe for one thing and the patient dies from something else." Doctor (with dignity~: "When I prescribe for pneumonia, you die of pneumonia." HOW SAD A QUIZ ON NAVAL TERMS Through the years of its existence, the United States Navy and its personnel have developed a language all their own--expressions which officers and blue-jackets use in their daily life aboard ship or at, shore stations. Many of these words and phrases are kn0wn to civilians, but few can trace their origin. A recent quiz on naval terms brpught to the attention of Elev- enth Naval District officials, included the follcwcing, listed along with their derivation : Bowline--A special knot u.sed by archers for their bow strings. Charlie Noble--The galley smoke stack, named for Charlie Noble, a mer- chant captain who, in 1850, upon learn- ing that his galley funnel was mE,l, of copper, ordered that it always be kept shined bright. Take a Caulk--to take a nap. It came from the (lays when naps were taken on the deck and one's back be- came marked by the pitch of the seams. A Tar--Nickname given a sailor, de- rived from the days when aboard wooden ships with "iron men" it was customary for the seamen to soak their trousers in tar to waterproof them. Keelhauling--In its present meaning it is synonomous with reprimand. Long ago the culprit was dropped into the sea and hauled under the keel of the ship from side to side. Ding-hy--A small boat belonging to a larger vessel; its name was taken from the Bengal word "Dingi," meaning small boat. Handsomely--In a nautical sense it means "slowly and with care"; it is an old English word meaning "handy" or manageable." The Lubber's Line--A black line marked on the surface of a compass bowl indicating the direction of the ship's head. It is so called because in the days when courses were steered to the nearest half point, a real seaman could do without it. -o- Bjorn: "So your son is in college ? How is he making it ?"
