Transcript Again and again in my mind I have reviewed the events that preceded the Wanese attack, seeking to determine |t I was unjustified in drawing from jhe orders, directives and information that were forwarded to me the concisions that 1 did. The fact that I ll" thought and now think my contusions were sound when based upon r1* information I received, has sus- awed me during the years that have rjjsed since the first Japanese bomb «U on Pearl Harbor. ... When the information available in Washington prior to the attack was "ally disclosed to me long after, I as appalled. Nothing in my experi- . ute of nearly forty-two years* service 1 the Navy had prepared me for the *t,ons (,i tne highest officials in our PjjYernment which denied this vital """'nation to the Pearl Harbor commanders.

Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey's foreword to Admiral Theobald's book points up one of many ethical questions : "I have always considered Admiral Kimmel and General Short to be splendid officers who were thrown to the wolves as scapegoats for something over which they had no control. They had to work with what they were given, both in equipment and information. They are our outstanding military martyrs." Today, Admiral Kimmel and the memory of General Short are accorded honor and respect by all fair-minded Americans. And those who sought to do such a vicious thing to them are becoming increasingly uncomfortable in the web of their own deceptions. —G. W. DeArmond, Jn. Collectivism on the Campus By E. Merrill Root, The Devin-Adair Company, 23 East 26th St., New York 10, N. Y., 1955, 403 pp., $5.00. It would be easy to use a cliche and say, "This book should be in every college and public library in the United States." Or the stereotype, "Here is a book which should be compulsory reading for every college fac ulty member and student in this country." Unfortunately, very few college professors will probably ever know of the existence of this important book on their profession and fewer will take the time to read it. You can make some very easy money by wagering odds that Collectivism on the Campus will not appear on the American Library Association's "Notable Book List of 1955." Or that the American Association of University Professors will not be rushing around to give it the buildup which it deserves. The left-liberal literary blackout on all works of this sort will see to that. The effective strangle-hold of the anti-anti-Commu- nist. left-liberal camarilla has already been well documented by Irene Kuhn in the American Legion Magazine and Ralph De Toledano in the American Mercury, as well as by others. A few years ago the well-known whaler from Connecticut, Bill Buckley, drove his harpoon, God and Man at Yale, deep into the blubbery rump of the professional educationist trust. One still hears an occasional howl of anguish from the professoriate. Now Dr. E. Merrill Root, himself an educator, has widened and extended the bill of indictment into a more comprehensive study of the "battle for the mind in American colleges."
