The Sage Says: By CLYDE BROWNE The above presumptuous title represents the opinion of the publisher of this paper, and not the writer of this column, who holds that modesty Is a virtue that should prevail In any Itinerant scribblings. We all know that a Chinaman detests the viscera of a Jap, which means that one is a safe pro-ally and the other a dangerous pro-Axis, yet how is the average American going to tell which Is which? Any saddle-colored biped with eyes on the bias may be either friend or foe. • * • In Biblical times they had a word to test a suspect. They would hurl at them: “Say now ‘sibbolith” and they sayeth ‘shibboleth’, for they could not frame to pronounce the word.” That settled the matter in short order. They had their number at once.

What Do You Think? Heroes in White On December 4, a medical officer of the U. S. Navy un derwent an appendicitis operation at Pearl Harbor. Three days later, when the Japs struck, that man got out of bed, assembled his kit, and worked steadily for three days and nights until he collapsed. He was just one of the heroes in white the little group of Navy doctors and nurses, aided by volunteer nurses—who performed the medical miracle of giving treatment to 90 per cent of the casualties by nightfall of fateful December 7th. It is for such selfless service that the Red Cross is asking contributions and American nurses and medical men are volunteering. They won’t fly bombers or man machine guns; and their achievements will be in headlines but little. But they will make in far places their gallant stand against agony and death, as they made it at Pearl Harbor —and the grateful men of the fighting forces will accord them the same high tribute they accord to the heroes ir khaki for the stands...
