Gives Address at Elks Flag Warnes of Russia and Calls for Universal Military Training Gen. Emil M. Podeyn, delivering the principal address at the an-nual Flag Day exercises of the Freeport Lodge of Elks in the lodge room Thursday night said the United .States seemed to be at war with Russia, and that it must win or lose the American way of life. He added that con-ditions today paralleled those of 1937 with the Army and Navy stripped of their effectiveness and insisted that the United States must maintain a large military establishment or universal military training. Gen. Podeyn said the President's Commission on Universal- Military Training found the great question it had to answer was "How im-portant is universal training to the security of the United States and the peace of the World," and came to the conclusion that, it was not only important but "essential." The general went into details in discussing the American Bill of Rights, and concluded by consider-ing the President's Commission on Atomic Energy ftnd Its work. He said- the commission -^u^Vestlnijited rthe^-crniitfetrxStates'' monopoly^' <m atomic expdosives would be broken by about 1951. and that after 1955 an a tonic attack in force could be made against this country. "The signal for the start of a war against us will be a large-scale, long distance onslaught with atomic explosives against our principal centers of population and production" he said the report continued. "The first day's attack might lay waste to 12 of our major cities," Gen. Podeyn said, citing a high ranking Army of-ficer. "We would have chaos, with communications disrupted, mil-lions of persons sick, wounded and dying, and civil disorder and sabotage prevailing." He predicted such a war would be short and America would have to bt ready to react in the first 60 days rather than the 12th, 18th. or 24th month as in past wars. To prevent such a catastrophe, Gen. Podeyn recommended that the United States provide an air-borne striking force of profession-al highly trained troops armed with the most advanced weapons, and "equal in importance" a system of universal military train-ing so that all American youths on reaching 18, or completing high school would receive, six months I of basic training and an additional' six months^' in college or special units of advanced training. j Exalter Ruler 'Gordon H. Meyer i presided, and Karl A. Reich pro-1 vided the music. A feature was the massing of the colors of numerous ppsts_ of the American Legion 'and Veterans of Foreign Wars and their auxiliaries. Wil-liam Clinton Stey Post buglers sounded "To the Colors." Mayor Cyril C. Ryan delivered a brief address of welcome, Karl Anton, as acting chaplain, offered prayer and the picturesque "History of the Flag" was conducted by P.E.R. Milford F. -VanRiper.
