Writer’s Note: However “dire” you consider things are in our everyday life, government and society in general, things could be worse … and they were throughout the 1930s and half of the 1940s. We should never repeat those days but somehow history has a way of doing just that.

frenzy during the "Roaring” 1920s caused vast numbers of Americans to feverishly borrow money in order to buy stocks to get rich quick.

Unlike today's stock market, which has stringent federal safeguards brought about by the wild speculation of that earlier era, the boom of the 1920s became unsteady due to the tremendous amount of borrowed money and false optimism. By 1928, stockbrokers had loaned American investors some 800 mil-

lion, but as stock values escalated through that year and into the next, a buying frenzy ensued.

President Herbert Hoover

By October 1929, this tremendous debt caused the market to c r a s h . Investors immediately lost confidence in their stocks. Loans were called in result-

ing in a selling frenzy that caused a complete financial collapse. Those who sold their shares lost everything. Ironically, the few very investors who held onto their stocks eventually regained losses. History shows the U.S. government had been short-sighted in its banking, securities, and economic policies, which contributed greatly to the “Crash of '29.” Government's "hands-off" attitude toward American business resulted in unchecked investing and borrowing. The result was an unstable

economy, with uneven national wealth. An American “middle class” was barely discernable. By 1930, the United States truly was a "have" and "have-not" nation. Because most of the nation's wealth was in the hands of a few families who hoarded their cash or invested rather than buying American goods, the supply of products became greater than their demand. While some people profited from this strategy, most did not. Inflation set in causing prices to rise to the point most Americans could not afford to buy necessities. Farmers and workers were among the worst hit causing a spiraling economy. In 1921, President Warren G. Harding succeeded Democrat Woodrow Wilson. When Harding suddenly died in 1923, Vice President Calvin Coolidge assumed office until 1929. Hoover, a Republican, took office in 1929. During the Harding and Coolidge administrations, Hoover served as U.S. Secretary of Commerce. As president, Hoover would have but a few months of peace and prosperity before the financial bottom dropped and the nation plunged into economic depression. By 1932, other developed nations had followed and the entire world plunged

It was 90F+ on Labor Day and a woman was outside working in her garden. Her husband walked up and asked her what they were having for Labor Day dinner.

Irritated by the thought of him sitting in the air conditioned house watching baseball while she labored away on the weeds, she snapped, "I can't believe you're asking me about supper right now! Pretend I'm out of town, go inside and make dinner yourself!" So he went back in the house and fixed himself a big steak, potatoes, garlic bread, and a large iced tea. He carried it out to the deck, sat down in the shade of the umbrella, and began to eat.

His wife walked by just about the time he was finishing up and asked, "Where's my dinner?"

He replied, "Huh? I thought you were

into economic chaos.

The Great Depression caused Hoover to become a tragic figure in American history. By the time he was elected president in 1928, Hoover was the single most popular man in America and, possibly, the world. He had an unparalleled reputation for public service. Hoover was world renowned as a humanitarian. Born in West Branch, Iowa, Hoover was the son of a Quaker blacksmith. A graduate of Stanford University, he worked in China where he became the leading engineer for an American company. He and his wife, Lou, were caught up in the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, where the future American president was credited with saving the lives of hundreds of young Chinese children. This would be but the first episode where Hoover would come to the rescue of humanity.

When the First World War broke out in August 1914, Hoover was in London where the U.S. Consul General asked him for help in getting stranded American tourists in Europe out of harm's way. Hoover formed a rescue committee assisting some 120,000 fellow citizens to escape the dangers of the pending World War I.

With the war raging, Hoover led a U.S. effort to set about the coordination of food distribution to the people of Belgium, which had been overrun by the German army.

When the United States entered the war in 1917, President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, appointed Hoover to head up the U.S. Food Administration. Hoover succeeded in cutting U.S. domestic food consumption that would be needed for Europe, thus avoided rationing here in the United States. Because of Hoover's efforts, no one in America went hungry.

At war's end, Hoover was named to the Supreme Economic Council as well as head of the U.S. Relief Administration. This organization arranged food shipments to Germany and other war-torn central European nations. By 1921, Hoover extended U.S. aid to the Soviet Union which was suffering a nationwide famine. When Hoover was criticized by some politicians for helping Communist Russia, he replied firmly: "There are 20 million people starving over there. Whatever their politics, they shall be fed!"

By March 1929, Americans couldn't have been more confident about their new president as Hoover moved into the White House.

America was booming with a vibrant stock market and a strong, bustling industry -- what could go wrong? When the stock market crashed in October 1929, Hoover declared that a balanced budget and a tax cut, coupled with a spending expansion on public works would correct the financial situation.

But, by 1931, similar economic woes in Europe were plunging the entire world into crisis and chaos. President Hoover presented a program for aiding American businesses and farmers, many of whom were facing foreclosures on their properties. He also proposed banking reforms, as well as federal loans to individual states so they could feed their unemployed. Hoover also demanded the Federal government drastically cut its own spending wherever possible. What has been lost to history is Herbert Hoover was a kindly man who did have the best interests of the people at heart. However, while he felt no one should go hungry, Hoover maintained that the primary responsibility for feeding society’s poor was that of the individual states, local governments, and private volunteer organizations – not the Federal government. This would be a philosophy that would be his political ruin.

The final coffin nail in Hoover’s failed presidency was the mass demonstration of World War I veter-

"Identity Theft: You Can Protect Yourself" - On Thursday, September 23, the Leichtag Foundation will present an on-line ans’ march on Washington, D.C., creating the so-called “Bonus Army.” It was election year of 1932. The demonstration in the nation’s capital climaxed on July 28 when the U.S. Army was called out by Hoover to put down the demonstration. The Bonus Army was made up of 17,000 U.S. World War I veterans, together with their families and affiliated groups, totaling an estimated 43,000. They gathered and camped out on the Capitol Mall to demand early cash redemption of their service bonus certificates promised to them by Congress for their service during the war. Many of the war veterans had been out of work since the beginning of the Great Depression. The World War Adjusted Compensation Act of 1924 promised the veterans bonuses in the form of certificates, but couldn’t redeem them until 1945. Each certificate, issued to a qualified veteran, bore a face value equal to the soldier's promised payment with compound interest. The principal demand of the Bonus Army was the immediate cash payment of their certificates. After days of protesting President Hoover ordered the U.S. Army to clear the marchers' campsite.

He sees a child, standing by the open door. He doesn’t know how the boy got in. Only friends and family are allowed to visit—Bill has neither. The kid must be about ten or eleven. He is by himself, dark skinned, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. “Who’re you?” Bill says.

“ Dr. Nick,” Former Chief Medical Officer sues County for Discrimination

Former San Diego County Chief Nick Dr. Officer Medical Yphantides is suing the county, claiming discrimination and retaliation were behind his termination earlier this year.

Known to many in the public as “Dr. Nick,” Yphantides had been one of the county’s most visible medical figures in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak in 2020. When faced with his own mental health crisis during that time, Yphantides said he was discriminated against and terminated because of the stigma associated with his condition.

In a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court, Yphantides claims he took a four-week medical leave last October on a recommendation from his doctor because of stress related to his role in the county’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. When he felt he was ready to return, however, he was told to take another leave, according to the lawsuit.

After an additional seven weeks of leave, Yhantides was ordered to take a “fitness for duty” exam to determine his mental state, according to the lawsuit. Greg Klawitter, an attorney on Yphantides legal team, said in a press conference Wednesday that the exam was not completed for a variety of reasons. Yphantides was terminated March 22.

Yphantides, who was the county’s chief medical officer for 11 years, said during the press conference that he had been open with his colleagues about suffering from depression, anxiety and insomnia when he took a leave of absence. When he tried to return after feeling better, however, he said he was seen as “damaged goods.” The lawsuit is asking for an unspecified amount to cover loss of wages and benefits, emotional distress damages, attorney fees and other relief.

Yphantides said he also is suing the county to protect other county health care workers who may face retaliation and discrimination. ESCONDIDO POLICE CONDUCTS MINOR DECOY OPERATION

On 9/07/2021, the Escondido Police Department conducted a Minor Decoy Operation. Minor Decoy Operations involve minors who work under the direct supervision of department agents and attempt to purchase alcohol from an ABC licensed business. These types of operations are part of a program utilized by ABC and local law enforcement agencies used to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors. State law prohibits the furnishing of alcohol to a minor, which is a misdemeanor violation of Business & Professions Code 25658(a). The following results are from Tuesday’s operation:

It all started three years ago. Juan and his family had no idea of the roller coaster ride they were in for!

When the show aired he got 5000 hits on its website the first day. But he couldn’t open while Bar Rescue was filming - then after the show aired the government ordered the shutdown. Again, not able to serve his customes, all of whom were anxious to patronize, to spend money, to dine on great food, to party. Nope.

But that’s just what Juan Magana and his family did.

Juan and his family knew they could turn the restaurant around and present a brand new, spotlessly clean restaurant with outsanding food and atmosphere and a menu that was second to none. And so they bought the restaurant.

And then the lockdown hit. They could not serve customers, old or new.

Covid had hit and a lesser person and his family might have thrown in the towel. Not the Magano family.

Minor Decoy operations have been conducted by local law enforcement throughout the state since the 1980’s. When the program first began, the violation rate of retail establishments selling to minors was as high as 40 to 50 percent. In 1994, the California Supreme Court ruled unanimously that use of underage decoys is a valid tool of law enforcement to ensure that licensees are complying with the law.

Hardest working people: While writing about the food service profession I have to take note and comment on the hardest working servers I know. Tina, Traci, Susie and Bill . . from Charlie’s Restaurant, Michelle from Dominic’s, Kim and Judith from J&M’s . . . so many more at other restaurants but whom I don’t know personally . . . I’m amazed at how hard they work and how they almost run, not walk, from table to table to care for their patrons.

One day, while dining at Charlie’s, I told Evelyn, “I’d last, at most, about an hour as a server. I would not be able to keep up with them. You have to be in great physical shape to be a good server. Constantly on the go, often from 6am, or earlier, until late afternoon, with only an occasional break to catch your breath.” I tend to be a generous tipper as I like to show my appreciation for a job well done. I might suggest you do the same when you go out and enjoy a fine meal.

Restaurants are having a very difficult time attracting much needed help, largely because experienced servers can earn close to their regular wages just by staying home and collecting stimulus and unemployment benefits. Now that the federal support has stopped ... we hope the work force will return and help out suffering restaurants and their patrons. Meanwhile, a tip of the hat to those present day servers.

A second, smaller Bonus March in May 1933 at the start of the Roosevelt administration was defused with an offer of jobs with the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Hunt, Virginia, which most of the protestors accepted. Those who chose not to work for the CCC by the May 22 deadline were given transportation home. Ironically, in 1936, Congress overrode President Franklin D.

In 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower appointed Hoover as chairman of yet another governmental reorganization commission. In all of his undertakings, with the exception of his four years as president, Hoover earned the admiration of his fellow citizens and leaders around the world.

Hoover died at the age of 90 on Oct. 20, 1964, having served the U.S. government and its citizens longer and in more far-reaching ways than any other politician and humanitarian in American history.

Unless one lived through the Great Depression, there’s no way to fully explain what life in America was like for the average citizen. Jobs dried up causing money to be scarce, especially for those living in the “dust bowl”of Oklahoma, northern Texas, Colorado, the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas. Those people living in the vast rural areas of America often had enough to eat because they were able to grow most of what was needed, but few had any hard currency to buy other necessities. In the cities families starved and unemployment reached as high as 40 percent. FDR, as he was known to Americans, was elected president promoting his "New Deal." Roosevelt's plan quickly won the overwhelming support of the pub-


Within the first 100 days in office, FDR pushed dozens of programs through Congress to create jobs, provide relief, and get the economy jump-started. He had little resistance from politicians on both sides of the aisle who were eager to report good news back in their home districts. Ironically, most of Roosevelt's “New Deal” programs were based on federal economic programs designed and started by Hoover during the First World War.

As the Great Depression dragged on through the 1930s, America struggled as did the world. Historians continue to argue whether FDR’s economic programs would have ended the Depression. It was a moot point … it was rather dramatically ended by World War II. However, history shows President Roosevelt played a dangerous political game during the late ‘30s and early ‘40s.

In 1940 while most of the nation wanted nothing to do with the war in Europe, Great Britain was desperate for help. Roosevelt managed to provide arms and materials, even naval escorts for merchant ship convoys crossing the Atlantic, where scores of Nazi German submarine “wolf packs” patiently waited. After over-running France, Hitler casted his eyes upon England. In

May 1940, it was obvious Hitler would be looking next at conquering England. On July 10, 1940, some two months before the Battle of Britain would begin, Roosevelt told an aide in the Oval Office that “… something must be done to help our English cousins” while continuing to maintain a neutral posture.

“We must find a way to help our friends, although I am a bit concerned about the fact that we’re caught in the middle trying to stop empire builders in Asia (Japan) and Europe (Germany and Italy) so that our English cousins might continue building their empire,” Roosevelt lamented. FDR and British Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill had met or exchanged letters on a number of occasions to make plans for war even though the U.S. was supposed to have been “neutral.” There is evidence this collaboration had gone on even before Germany attacked Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, igniting World War II.

The President knew it would be a matter of time before the United States would be pulled into the war, and there was no doubt that America would be on the side of the Allied Forces. While the public focused upon the war news from Europe, the various invasions by Japan in Korea, Manchuria, China

and Southeast Asia were mostly ignored by Americans. After all, the Pacific was a big ocean and that conflict was a very long way from American shores.

By 1939, the economic effects of the Depression had begun to lift. Because of the belligerent actions of Nazi Germany and Italy in Europe and the Japanese in Southeast Asia, the United States began to arm for war.

In 1940, Japan joined Germany and Italy to form the so-called “Axis” powers. Roosevelt knew American forces would have to take action as Japanese forces came closer to U.S. Pacific installations in the Philippines, Guam, Midway, and Wake Island.

During those years leading up to Dec. 7, 1941, the United States’ entrance into the war, resourcestricken Japan had been buying great quantities of American scrap metal, which was melted down and turned into implements of war … much of it was flung back against this country. The crowning blow to Japan, however, came when FDR placed an oil embargo against that nation, cutting off their critical petroleum supply. This forced Japan to become even more aggressive in oil-rich Indonesia and Asia. Much of Roosevelt’s communications with Churchill were confidential and behind the scenes, while his public persona was that of an “isolationist” leader. However, FDR never hid his contempt for Nazi Germany.

While Roosevelt secretly helped Churchill with Britain’s defense plans, the president continued to tell Americans he would do everything to keep the United States out of war, knowing full well only a miracle could prevent that from happening. Roosevelt’s full intentions finally were revealed in September 1940 when he proposed to Congress the “Lend-Lease” plan for Great Britain and the Soviet Union. The proposal was an answer to FDR’s call for the loan of money, as well as war materials such as planes, tanks, ammunition, rifles, and other equipment for England and Russia. Some 50 mothballed World War I-era destroyers were turned over to British Royal Navy crews, while dozens of P-39 fighter aircraft and Studebaker trucks were shipped to the Soviet Union via merchant convoy. In return, the United States got 99-year leases for military bases in Canada’s New Foundland providence, the island of Bermuda, and the colony of British Guiana.

To communicate directly with America, Roosevelt did something no other president had been able to do -- he went on the radio to talk

Page 6

directly to the people. Previous presidents had issued press statements and let the newspapers deliver the message, which, often times was distorted, turned around, or incorrectly presented. Much to the chagrin of America’s press barons like Henry Luce, William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer, Roosevelt’s nationwide radio “Fireside Chats” circumvented the media. His evening broadcasts on national radio were delivered when entire families coast-to-coast could gather around the radio. FDR came into every American home like an old friend, which made him one of the most charismatic presidents in U.S. history.

In his 1940 Lend-Lease speech to Congress and the American people, Roosevelt used his Fireside Chat: “My fellow Americans … England stands alone. … We cannot and we will not tell them they have to surrender simply because we will not give them the weapons they need. “If Great Britain goes down, then all of us in the Americas will be living at the point of a Nazi gun. … I understand what England’s needs are and I understand what the dangers are to both of us.” Later, Roosevelt told key members of his cabinet about his plans to assist Prime Minister Churchill far beyond Lend-Lease.

“Mr. Churchill and I will enter into a secret pact. For our part, we’ll wage war against Nazi Germany, but not declare it. Everything must be done to create an incident.”

Roosevelt pondered for a moment, and then admitted what those close to him already knew: “You know, I’m a juggler. I never let my right hand know what my left hand does. I’m perfectly willing to mislead if it will help win the war. However, it’s not that I mind walking a tightrope, but just how un-neutral can we get?” If there was one single man ultimately responsible for the Allies winning the war against Fascism, it had to be Hungarian-born physicist Leo Szilard. Szilard (pronounced “So-lard”), along with fellow countryman Eugene Vigner, had fled the Nazis in Europe, immigrating to the United States. Before he left, Szilard figured out a nuclear chain

Restoring Tribal Lands

Historically, the relationship between federal and state governments and Native Americans has been fraught with violence, mistreatment and neglect. In 1887, the General Allotment Act broke up reservation lands and resulted in the uncompensated loss of 90 million acres nationwide. Taking steps toward restoring tribal lands through fee-to-trust transfers is one way to correct past injustices, restore tribal sovereignty, selfdetermination and economic independence.

I have joined Senator Ben Hueso (D – San Diego) to co-author Senate Bill 712 (SB 712). The federal feeto-trust application process establishes procedures that must be followed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the tribal applicants along with state and federal governments. During this process, local jurisdictions may comment on the effect the transfer would have on their tax rolls, along with other impacts. SB 712 requires local governments to evaluate a federally recognized tribe’s fee-to-trust acquisition application based on its merits. This would include data provided by tribes on the economic benefits the tribes have on surrounding communities. It should be remembered that fee-to-trust land transfers involve

lands already owned by the tribe that are being transferred to federal ownership to be held in trust – in effect – to become an integral part of the reservation.

Trust acquisitions give tribes the ability to improve housing, educational opportunities as well as to encourage agriculture, hunting and other activities that are essential parts of their culture. The bill was sponsored by the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians, and is supported by a number of California tribes including the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians. On September 8th, I was very proud to present SB 712 on the Assembly floor. The bill passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support, and will now be returned to the Senate for final approval. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

The Paper


Q: I bought a coat from last fall. I returned the item, confirmed the return and issued a refund to my credit card in late December. But then recharged me $959 about a week later for the same item. I have not ordered from since the October return and don't know what the new charge is for. I have tried to resolve this with Saks and disputed the claim with Chase Visa three times with no success. has offered me no proof of purchase or other confirmation of what it thinks it's charging me for. My account shows no additional purchase than the October return. Can you help me get a refund? -Cornelia Spiegel, New York

A: should have returned your money at once and not charged you for the coat again.

This is such a strange case. When you found out about the second charge, you tried calling but couldn't get through to a person. So you decided to dispute the charge on your Chase Visa. You went through two disputes. Both times, Chase sided with But why?

Before we get to the answer, I wanted to share a tip about fighting a charge. The credit card dispute is what I like to call the nuclear option. You only want to do a chargeback as a last resort for a variety of reasons. Before then, you'll want to contact the merchant in writing and ask for a resolution. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of the <a href=""> customer service managers</a> on my consumer advocacy site, So back to the question -- why would charge for an item you never bought? I forwarded your case to and it provided you with an answer.

You worked through a third party to send your first coat back to The shipping service lost your package, and to cover your losses, it paid you $959, the value of the coat. So that initial refund came from the shipper, not The shipping service then found the package and sent it to

"Saks apparently felt that because I received a refund, they should get to re-charge me," you said. "Frankly, I find that remarkable: Saks seems to think that they’re entitled to doubledipping on a refund from an unrelated third party." You say you returned the shipper’s refund as soon as confirmed the return of the coat. When you provided with a copy of the check you sent to the shipper

September 16, 2021

and a bank receipt showing that the shipper had cashed it, agreed to undo the re-charge.

Historically Speaking

After I asked about the case, a representative said, "We will look into this and resolve it quickly." It's unclear whether my involvement expedited the return of your money, but Saks also sent you a $100 gift card as an apology.

War Often is the Mother of Invention

World War II brought a number of innovations and inventions out of necessity to America. The original creation of the “Jeep” by Bantam Reconnaissance Car was just one of those innovations. However, the term “Jeep” was used for a variety of items long before World War II.

Q: I'm trying to secure a refund from UnCruise Adventures for an Alaska cruise canceled during the pandemic. UnCruise Adventures agreed to a $2,400 refund last July, but I have not yet received it after numerous messages. A representative said it would take 90 days to process a refund. I have since been in touch to ask for an update numerous times via email and by phone. But I haven't received anything yet.

I would like the refund check for $2,400 to be sent as soon as possible. Can you help me? -- Thomas Anderson, Quincy, Mass. A: If UnCruise Adventures promised you a refund within 90 days, it should have sent you one. Why didn't it?

UnCruise Adventures, which operates small ship cruises in Alaska, Central America and Hawaii, was hit by a wave of cancellations during the pandemic. It turns out the company was waiting for a federal disaster loan to repay customers like you. In an email sent to you last fall, the company blamed a delay in its federal disaster financing on the delay. "The most recent information from our bank indicates that approval is now not likely until after the election, making it mid/late November as our best and latest estimate for your refund processing," a representative wrote. "This is very disappointing for all of us here at UnCruise Adventures, and I am sure for you as well."

Today we know the World War II “Jeep” was a four-wheel drive vehicle for reconnaissance or other military duty. A term originally applied to and occasionally on other motor vehicles of the U.S. Army and the U.S. Army Air Corps. It also was used by the military as "any small plane, helicopter, or gadget." The U.S. Navy’s term "jeep carrier" referred to small escort aircraft carriers supplying larger attack carriers during battle with replacement aircraft. During World War I the U.S. Army used “jeep” as slang for new uninitiated recruits, or by mechanics referring to new unproven vehicles. In 1937, U.S. Army’s tractors supplied by the farm equipment manufacturer Minneapolis-Moline were called “jeeps.” The B-15 bomber, a precursor of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, also was referred to as a “jeep.”

But that's not the way it's supposed to work. If a company promises a refund, it should have enough cash to issue the refund. UnCruise Adventures should have been upfront with you: It didn't have the money to repay you, and it didn't know when it would get the money.

When it became clear the United States would be involved in the European theater of World War II, the U.S. Army asked some 135 companies to create working prototypes for a four-wheel drive reconnaissance car, but only two firms responded: American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland. The Army set a nearly impossible deadline of 49 days to supply a working prototype. Because of the Great Depression Bantam had only a skeleton crew but asked freelance designer Karl Probst for help. On July 17, 1940, Probst began work without salary.

Travel Troubleshooter Cont. on Page 13

Final Jeep production versions were built by Willys and Ford with only subtle differences between the two. As the

I'm troubled by these pandemic refund cases. It's not just UnCruise Adventures. Many other travel companies, big and small, didn't have the money to refund their customers after their cancellations. Of course, a pandemic is a once-in-a-generation event, but you would hope that businesses would learn a lesson from this and not treat their customers' money as an interest-free bridge loan to get them

Probst basic plan was known as the “BRC” (Bantam Reconnaissance Car). The firm’s bid was submitted in five days. Because the War Department required a large number of vehicles in a short period of time, Willys granted the government a non-exclusive license to allow other companies to manufacture vehicles using Willys' specifications. The Army chose Ford as a second supplier.

War continued the cost per vehicle trended upwards from the original price under Willys first contract of $648.74. Ford's price tag was $782.59 per unit. Together, Willys-Overland and Ford produced some 640,000 Jeeps, which accounted for approximately 18 percent of all the U.S. wheeled military vehicles built during the War. Jeeps were used by every service of the U.S. military. An average of 145 were supplied to every U.S. Army infantry regiment.

Jeeps were used for many purposes, including field ambulances, tractors, and, with wheels that would run on railway tracks. An amphibious jeep was built by Ford, but it could not be considered a success. As part of the “Lend-Lease” act, nearly 30 percent of all Jeeps produced were supplied to Great Britain and the Soviet Union. After the War, the British designed their popular all-terrain “Land Rover” which was inspired by the Jeep. Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent Ernie Pyle called the Jeep, along with the Coleman G.I. Pocket Stove, "… the two most important pieces of non-combat equipment ever developed." Jeeps became even more famous following the war as they became available on the surplus market. Some ads claimed to offer "Jeeps still in the factory crate." But Jeeps were never shipped from the factory in crates (although Ford did "knock down" Jeeps for easier shipping, which may have perpetuated the myth. U.S. military personnel familiar with life in the Philippines will recognize the term “Jeepney” as a unique type of taxi or bus created by Filipino taxi drivers. The first “Jeepneys” were original U.S. military-surplus vehicles left behind following WWII and Filipino independence in 1946.

Many explanations of the origin of the word “jeep” have proven difficult to verify. The most widely held theory is the military designation GP (for Government Purposes or General Purpose) was slurred into the word Jeep in the same way the contemporary HMMWV (for High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) has become the “Humvee.” The "Jeep" brand has gone through many owners, starting with WillysOverland, which filed the original trademark application for the "Jeep" brand name in February 1943. In 1945 Willys proceeded to produce the first civilian Jeep, copyrighting the name in 1946. Being the only company that continually produced "Jeep" vehicles after the war, in 1950, Willys was granted the name "Jeep" as a registered trademark.

Today, most of society recognizes the brand “Jeep” as just another automotive company. Manufactured by FiatChrysler, Jeep vehicles are the result of that funny little military car Karl Probst designed as war clouds were gathering. Those small four-wheeled drive vehicles were a far cry from today’s sleek, modern family cars. Jeep has emerged as one of the more important war-time innovations that, in five days of July 1940, was quickly drawn up for the U.S. War Department. No one could have imagined what an impact Jeep would make on American military and

reaction was not only possible, but an atomic weapon could be made from it. “If I’ve figured it out, then my colleagues back in Germany can do the same thing,” he told noted physicist Albert Einstein in 1939. Szilard feared Hitler’s scientists would develop an atomic weapon first. “If that happens, the world will be lost to Hitler,” Szilard maintained. Szilard wanted President Roosevelt to know about the chain reaction possibility, but thought he wouldn’t

be taken seriously. Einstein kept asking Szilard if such a reaction would be possible. “How do you know this?” Einstein finally asked.

“I used your formula (E = MC 2) to figure it out!” Szilard exclaimed to an astonished Einstein.

Szilard pleaded with Einstein for two months, finally convincing him to sign a letter (written by Szilard) to Roosevelt. The letter was dated July 16, 1939, and also signed by Einstein.

The letter to FDR informed him nuclear chain reactions could be created and used in bombs. The letter

was personally delivered by Alexander Sachs, a New York economist, who had been a speech writer for Roosevelt. It took three months for Sachs to get an appointment with the president. Finally, on Oct. 11, 1939, Sachs was in the Oval office reading the letter to FDR.

Roosevelt gathered Szilard and other scientists with the nation’s top military experts. It took nearly a year to convince the military of the potential, but when British agents informed American military leaders that Germany’s main reason for invading Norway was to capture that nation’s supply of “heavy water” to develop nuclear weapons, Szilard finally had the attention of officials in the War Department. As we now know, Roosevelt ordered the creation of the “Manhattan Project,” which ultimately developed the atom bomb that ended the war in 1945. Ironically, FDR signed the directive authorizing the Manhattan Project and the development of the atom bomb on Dec. 6, 1941, the day before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

The build-up toward the Second World War had one redeeming quality: it put Americans back to work and money in their pockets -- something many had not had for a number of years. The war production buildup effectively ended the Great Depression. President Roosevelt told the American people during one of his “Fireside Chat” radio broadcasts that

“America must become the great arsenal of democracy. Let no man say it can’t be done … it must be done!” he demanded.

After years of military buildup and territorial intimidation, on Sept. 1, 1939, Nazi Germany unleashed its “Blitzkrieg” attack on a nearly defenseless Poland. This unprovoked action brought Britain and France into the conflict to the defense of Poland. Within two years, nearly every developed nation around the globe had joined in the fight with the Allies fighting against the fascist states of Germany, Italy, and Japan. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, the American war machine cranked to full speed with nearly every ablebodied man and woman becoming involved one way or another. By 1942’s end, factories across America were retooled from building sewing machines and automobiles to turning out more than 60,000 war planes, and countless tanks and guns.

By 1943, the number of aircraft rose to 125,000. By 1945, the U.S. was producing one B-24 bomber ever 30 minutes, and one liberty ship for carrying troops and supplies every 30 days.

Some 16 million were in U.S. military service during World War II. From 1941 to 1946, more than 1 million civilian and uniformed Americans lost their lives.

President Roosevelt had the foresight to come to Great Britain’s aid in that nation’s time of need, knowing that if England fell, America would stand alone in a hostile world. By the end of 1942, the United States was leading the Allies to a long, hard victory. FDR would not live to see the end of the hostilities. He died on April 12, 1945, less than one month before Germany’s surrender on May 8, and five months before his Manhattan Project delivered the world’s first atomic bombs, bringing Japan to unconditional surrender on Aug. 14, 1945.

While Szilard and Einstein were key to guiding the United States toward developing the ultimate weapon that ended the war, both regretted their actions. Einstein continued to work as a pacifist for the rest of his life, and Szilard refused to work any longer as a physicist and switched to biology. Still, without their vision and intellect, today America might be speaking a different language.

While some may view this story in a negative way, the Great Depression and World War II were America’s entrance into world leadership.

A Sidebar to the Cover Story

The Way Things Were during the 1930s Effects of depression for America

During the Great Depression some 13 million people became unemployed. By 1932, 34 million people belonged to families with no regular full-time wage earner.

Industrial production fell by nearly 45 percent between 1929 and 1932. Home-building dropped by 80 percent between the years 1929 and 1932.

In the 1920s, the banking system in the U.S. was about $50 billion, which was about 50 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). From 1929 to 1932, about 5,000 banks went out of business. By 1933, 11,000 of the nation’s remaining 25,000 banks had failed.

Between 1929 and 1933, U.S. GDP fell to around 30 percent; the stock market lost almost 90 percent of its value.

Page 10 • • September 16, 2021

In 1929, the unemployment rate averaged 30 percent. In cities like Cleveland, Ohio the unemployment rate was 50 percent and in Toledo it was 80 percent. During the great “dust bowl” famine, some 1 million families lost their farms between 1930 and 1934.

The Pastor Says...

Corporate profits dropped from $10 billion in 1929 to $1 billion in 1932.

Between 1929 and 1932, the income of the average American family was reduced by 40 percent. Some 9 million savings accounts were wiped out between 1930 and 1933. In 1932, some 273,000 families were evicted from their homes resulting with about 2 million homeless people migrating around the country. In 1929, some 280,000 immigrants arrived in the U.S., but in 1933 only 23,068 arrived. In the early 1930s, more people emigrated “from” the U.S. than immigrated to it.

With little economic activity there was scant demand for new federal coinage. No nickels or dimes were minted in 1932-33, no quarter dollars in 1931 or 1933, no half dollars from 1930 to 1932, and no silver dollars in the years 1929–33. In 1932 deflation was 10.7 percent and real estate interest rate was 11 percent.

The U.S. government sponsored “ Mexican Repatriation” program which was intended to encourage mainly farmer workers to voluntarily move back to Mexico, but thousands, including many U.S. citizens, were deported against their will … altogether about 400,000 people. New York social workers reported 25 percent of all schoolchildren were malnourished. In the mining counties of West Virginia, Illinois, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania, the proportion of malnourished children was as high as 90 percent. People became ill with diseases such as tuberculosis (TB). The 1930 U.S. Census determined the population to be little more than 122.7 million of which about 40 percent was under 20 years old.

POST SCRIPT: I was born near the end of the Great Depression, some 82 years ago. Today, you have to be older than the 85 years to remember much of the everyday life in America. My father, who was born in 1916, always told us during his teen-age years his family never went hungry … it was cash money that was in scarce supply for everyone in a small farming community. His father was a butcher. When a farmer came to town with a steer, heifer or hog for slaughter, payment usually was made with my grandfather taking a portion of the meat …

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos


We all do it. Seems nobody is immune. We worry!

Faith asks some questions when it comes to worry:

• Do I pray, rather than worry? If something is worth worrying about, it is worth praying about. Corrie ten Boom said, in her book, Each New Day, “When I worry, I go to the mirror and say to myself, ‘This tremendous thing which is worrying me is beyond a solution. It is especially too hard for Jesus Christ to handle.’ After I have said that, I smile and I am ashamed.” • Is worry “choking” me? usually a quarter … which he used to sell in his meat market. He, in turn, sold much of that meat in exchange for produce such as milk, cream, butter, eggs, chickens, grain, and vegetables … whatever else residents and farmers could grow or raise. Not much of granddad’s retail meat was sold in exchange for cash money. Barter was a way of life during the 30s and into the 40s. For many laborers during the 1930s a dollar was a full-day’s wage if the employer had cash. Often wages were paid with barter such as above and that’s how much of rural America lived.

By 1939, the American public was well on its way to economic recovery. Below are some of the prices Americans paid for everyday living:

The average income was $1,729; cost of a new house was $3,850. The average rent was $28 a month. A new car was $700. Tuition to Harvard University was $420 yearly. Gasoline was 10 cent a gallon. The average adult paid 25 cents to go to the movies. And, a U.S. postage stamp was 3 cents. Tom Morrow

The original English word involves the meaning “to choke”. Much of what we worry about never comes about. Mark Twain once said “I am an old man and have known many troubles, but most of them never happened.” As a believer, we believe God is with us…so why really worry? • Do you remember what God says about worry? A couple of scriptures come to mind: An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. (Proverbs 12:25)

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (1 Peter 5:7) Mission 316 Church exists to help people get to know God through people.

San Marcos City Council names Creek Project bridges

It’s amazing to drive by the San Marcos Creek Project construction site! Construction crews have been hard at work, creating infrastructure that will improve safety, restore the creek habitat and reduce seasonal flooding.

Recently, the San Marcos City Council voted to name the new Creek Project bridges after two notable San Marcos residents – Pia Harris Ebert and the late Lionel “Doc” Burton.

The Bent Avenue bridge will be named in honor of Burton, who served as the first elected mayor of the City of San Marcos. Burton developed the San Marcos Community Foundation, which still benefits the community today. The bridge on Via Vera Cruz will be named after Pia Harris Ebert, the first woman elected to the San Marcos City Council, a role she maintained for 24 years. Learn more about the Creek Project at

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

When you read this, we will have just passed the 20th anniversary of 9/11. I’m sure most of us who were alive and aware at the time recounted our personal memories of how that event impacted our lives. And perhaps attended some remembrance ceremony. For me it is still very clear. I was a Colonel in the Marine Corps and the Chief of Staff at the First Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton. It was 6AM in the office, and I was going through my emails with the news channel on in the background when I saw the planes hit the towers. While I wasn’t alive during Pearl Harbor, I have to believe it was a similar impact on people, disbelief, horror, bewilderment and of course wondering why something like this happened. That day created many American heroes, and in the subsequent days to come. On anniversaries like this one, I try not to think about the geopolitics of the situation or about how and why it happened and what our actions should have been or be. Rather, I think about the American character. I always come to the conclusion that Americans of every race and creed, in crisis, put aside differences and come together heroically. In today’s world, where we are bombarded with tribalism, nationalism, partisanship, and you wonder if we will ever resolve our differences, I remember 9/11 and how the American character was once again revealed. It always gives me hope of a better future. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara-Mayor of

Born and raised in San Diego, Bailey graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Business Finance, and later graduated from the University of North Dakota with a Master of Science in Applied Economics. In 2012, he was elected to the Coronado City Council and, in 2016 at the age of 30, Bailey was elected the 51st Mayor of Coronado, becoming the youngest mayor in the city’s history. Bailey was selected as one of San Diego county’s “40 Leaders Under 40 Years Old” in 2018 and reelected Mayor in 2020 with 99.16% of the vote! He is also an Adjunct Professor of economics at the University of San Diego.

As Mayor of Coronado, Bailey has reduced taxes, voted against wasteful spending and supported reforms to protect taxpayers’ money which helped earn Coronado a AAA Bond rating. Richard also led by example by waiving his own city pension and voted twice against his own pay raise. During his time as Mayor, Bailey made environmental initia-

are very convincing and appear to be from trusted sources. Don’t do it.

Here are some recommended behaviors based on our own personal experience and the experiences of our customers.

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory www.

“Phishing” for Suckers

Phishing: “Fraudulent social engineering exploits used by cybercriminals to send messages or emails that appear to be from legitimate sources in order to induce victims to take actions that benefit the criminal at the expense of the victim.”

Most of the computer malware problems we see today result from “phishing” exploits. Cyber-criminals use human nature to motivate us through our vulnerabilities. Ego, fear, greed, revenge, pity, love, hate, vanity are the tools “bad guys” use to con us into playing their game. No software can protect you from becoming a victim. It’s up to each user to avoid yielding to the temptations. Nearly every day we get one or more authentic appearing notices inviting me to take some action. They

1. If you are a Windows user you should by now have Windows 10 on your PC. Windows 10’s integrated defense (Windows Defender) should provide adequate malware scanning and firewall protection. 2. Only accept hardware and software updates from an official site. Internet update notices may be phony. 3. Check your on-line bank and credit accounts regularly for signs of unauthorized access. 4. Assume that any Internet notice or Email that warns you of a computer problem is a scam. 5. Never allow any Internet or phone contact access to your PC, all are scams. There are no exceptions. 6. Never give credit card or banking information to any contact unless you are absolutely certain it is safe. 7. If you receive an email requesting action, check the email address to see if it is really from the indicated source. 8. Never pay anyone with “Money Cards” over the Internet; if they ask for payment through this method, they’re crooks. 9. If you believe your PC has been compromised, or have allowed access to it. Bring it in ASAP and have us check it out.

It is important to find out if your PC has compromised sooner rather than later. Some “phishing” exploits sit silently in your computer logging your activities, recording your passwords and monitoring your contacts. They disable your internal malware detection software so they can remain undetected indefinitely. They send your information to a server where your “hacked” data can be used or sold. Only external scans can detect and eradicate these exploits. Folks over fifty are understandably more susceptible to “phishing” exploits because we grew up in a smaller, kinder and more trusting world. Things usually were what they appeared to be and we commonly knew and trusted the people

and businesses with whom we commerced. Today, well funded, highly sophisticated, often foreign government abetted criminal networks have instant access to the Internet. The Internet has taught younger generations to be less trusting and more cynical. We of the older generations have been slow to give up our trusting nature. We grew up in small towns and neighborhoods where bad behavior was uncommon because we were all connected. It is sad that many younger folks never had the opportunity enjoy that sense of trust and community. So, to the older generations we say, never give up on that sense of trust and love for your neighbors, but watch out for those assholes on the Internet.

I don't know the specifics of UnCruise Adventures' situation. But I do know that your primary contact, a business development manager, is no longer with the company. I was sorry to hear that.

items to read, I'd choose my Bible, the New York Times, and Escondido's The Paper.

I challenge anyone to show me a major newspaper or magazine ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD on 9/11 that is as raw and emotionallymoving as your cover story written by your star writer, Friedrich Gomez. Everyone out here is talking about your publication Mr. Lyle Davis. Because when you're at your best, then nothing compares to you! Nothing! God bless you and God bless America!

New Fan, Caroline Douglas family, friends, coworkers. North San Diego County •••• Now that Labor Day's over, I want to take time to email you that your 9/11 Terrorist Attack cover story (9/2/21 issue of The Paper) had me gripping my chair in suspense! Made me cry and made me promise to never forget. And this week's Top Secret files on the Cuban Missile Crisis (9/4/21 of The Paper) made me feel like I was actually right there in the Cuban Military Center just as things were actually happening and I was in the middle of a real live mystery story! From Anthony Logan family, Valley Center & Escondido. Unbelievable Reporting!

don’t—at least not together. They divorce. He moves out, she gets the house. It’s ugly.

One day, he is at a jobsite, running electrical wire in a pine-framed house. There is an elderly man who shows up. The man looks homeless—long bearded, layered clothes, gaunty. They start talking. The old man is friendly. In the middle of their conversation, the old man says, “I think you oughta go back to your wife.” The young man just stares at him. He’s thinking, “How’d this guy know I was married?” “Go to her. Go now.”

The man wanders away and is not seen again.

After work, the young man calls his wife. She tells him that her sister has just died this morning. She is a wreck. He hops a flight to be with her. He stays with her through the worst. And he stays after that, too. After fourteen years they’ve made a beautiful life for themselves. They are the proud parents of twin girls.

I don’t know what you’re facing today. Maybe it’s something bad. Maybe it’s not a big deal. Maybe it's a late car insurance payment. Maybe it’s something fatal. Maybe it’s something worse.

Well, I don’t have any knowledge on how the universe works. I don’t know anything about the nature of life, and you have no reason to care about a word I say. But if you’ve read this far, there’s something I want to tell you, friend: You’re not alone. Not even for a moment. That’s not an opinion.

Sean Dietrich is a columnist, novelist, and radio show host, known for his commentary on life in the American South.

Wow! Just picked up a copy of your weekly magazine on the declassified files on the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis! Shocking and riveting! Never knew what your magazine uncovered! How does your publication have such exclusive access to this data? That goes for last week's 9/11 exclusive report titled "I Love You Mommy, Goodbye," which had never before seen last minute phone calls from people who died in the Twin Towers and the commercial airlines. I would have to echo what all my friends said: the 9/11 cover was the most powerful testimonial and best cover story I've ever read thus far!

You made history because my friends went to J&M Restaurant Monday or Tuesday and every copy was gone on 9/11. I say you made history because I've NEVER known J&M to run out of The

Paper since they have two HUGE stacks, top and bottom racks! Gone! My friends scurried over to Charlie's Restaurant (which you often talk about) and there was a small stack left even there! A friend who frequents Stater Bros. here in Escondido said The Paper was OUT in just a couple days! Your advertisers must be proud because your publication sure as hell gives them a lot of exposure! Your writer Friedrich Gomez is the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs by writing such extraordinary cover stories like 9/11 and now the Cuban Missile Crisis declassified Top Secret files. Mr. Davis, you need to be recognized for some type of newspaper award! We're all happy we climbed onboard as new fans! -Kent Warren and coworkers, Escondido & San Marcos, California. She’s Right!

Regarding Ms. Hauser's military comment in Letters to the Editor titled "Hits Close to Home" (9/2/21 issue of The Paper) she's correct!

Nine of the 13 U. S. service members killed in the suicide bomb at the Kabul Airport in Afganistan were based right here at Camp Pendleton. The Marines and sailor were all of the same 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment called "The Professionals." I encourage everyone to read about it in the SD Union-Tribune (8/28/21 edition. But in reality, ALL U.S. service men and women -- regardless where they're based -- "Hit Close to Home." I was very proud to read and learn that so many writers and columnists who write for The Paper are U. S. military vets. I knew your brilliant writer, Friedrich Gomez, was because we read of one serviceman visiting from Long Beach who served with him, and who bumped into him while visiting Cruisin' Grand!.

And Lyle, as many have already said, YOU need some recognition for how The Paper has impacted the lives of so many people. You're an All-American newspaper, and it's founded, published, and run by a former U. S. Army veteran who proudly served our country -- and that's you, lyle e. davis! And knowing your damned humility, don't edit this part out. God love you, Mate! -Patrick Flannigan and his Big Irish Clan, North San Diego County.

San Diego Gulls Coming to Oceanside - Oceanside based TriCity Inline Hockey League (TCIHL) is marking its 28th year of operation with having a special celebrity drop the puck at TCIHL’s Fall-2021 Season’s very first game. The faceoff at the first elementary school game will be done by none other than “Gulliver,” the official mascot of San Diego Gulls Hockey Club. The event - open to the public and a great photo and autograph opportunity for youngsters – will be held at 10am on Saturday, September 25th, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Park’s roller hockey rink, located at 4300 Mesa Drive in Oceanside. The mascot is not only the current face of San Diego Gulls, which was reorganized in 2000 with roots going back to 1966, but it represents a seagull-themed image of San Diego. Having the official representative of a professional minor league of AHL (Western Conference Pacific Division) at this event in Oceanside is set to be an inspirational moment for many kids at TCIHL. Tri-City Inline Hockey League is a non-profit organization established in 1993 for the development of youth inline roller hockey. TCIHL’s co-ed recreational program is now open to new and experienced players aged 5 through 17
