Patriotic Soldiers Pay No Heed to Rumors One of the chaplains here at Drew Field once knew two boys CHURCH CALL who were brothers. Both of those CATHOLIC Rumors Are Started Generally by Enemy To Promote Disunity It has bee n a traditional right of the American soldier to gripe and grouse (sometimes we use a n eve n harsher word to describe it). It has often been said that when a soldier is not griping to some extent, he is not a happy soldier. No one will deny the American's right of free speech and free thought because they are two of the most important liberties that we are fighting for. But sometimes griping and grousing is not just "blowing off steam. Sometimes there is a malicious sort of giousing, which goes far beyond the traditional rights of the American S'Oldier. Gossip and rumor are employed as a means of vilifying the char acteJ. of a soldier or officer, of casting slurs on his honor and ili tegrity, and occasionally as a deliberate libeL Such malicious rumors are not only criminal-they are un-American. Rumors which create dissension, gossip which creates dissatisfaction, and any kind of whispered remarks which are not hon orable enough to come out in the open-those are the methods of the Axis agents who seek to disrupt our military system. Those soldiers who are foolish enough to repeat idle rumor, malicious gossip, and libelous remarks are playing into the hands of the clever Axis agents who are frequently responsible for such trickery. Criticism of our food, complaining about the transportation sys tem, dislike of a pa1ticular noncom or officer, griping about living quarters, grousing about ratings can be toler'ated in a small way, as_ the American soldier's legitimate right to blow off steam. But when occasionally a particular rumor or a malicious lie reaches epidemic proportions -then the subtle hand of Axis propagandis-ts can be discerned. boys grew up in the same home, 6 .15 A.
