|Contents:||With the air of a conqueror --
I am naturally a sort of soldier --
Good men ... running around in circles --
It's mostly the navy, but it's old-fashioned generals too --
Give us the ships to attack and come out and watch it --
You are throwing the navy into convulsions --
Kill, lay out and bury this great ship --
The biggest man in the country --
Sorrowfully we broke up this splendid little air force --
The military spirit of Germany is by no means crushed --
Air power doesn't seem to be getting anywhere --
The Japanese are now boiling over --
The only question is how and when and where --
A vehicle for propaganda --
General Mitchell's course has been so lawless --
Almost treasonable administration --
America will endure as long as there are Mitchells --
The most august tribunal ... since the Magna Carta --
This ain't a vaudeville show --
Nothing more than prediction and prophecy --
This factless statement --
Damned rot! --
Why, these men are my friends! --
My valves are all shot.
