On the Front Cover
Strikingly keyed to the subject of this month's Pictorial, "Camouflage (WW-1)," is the oil painting of "A Fast Convoy," by Burnell Poole, that depicts the unforgettable 4-piper lines of the USS Allen (DD-6) as she surges to gain escort station on the SS Leviathan. The giant transport is camouflaged in an "Admiralty dazzle" paint scheme, one of several illustrated in the unusual pictorial that begins on page 57. Courtesy of the U. S. Naval Academy Museum.

Table of Contents
- P.O.W. Treatment: Principles versus Propaganda
John H. Chafee
The Secretary of the Navy reminds the North Vietnamese and the world that Hanoi's wretched treatment of U. S. prisoners of war is a violation of human morals and international conventions.
- A "New" China Policy?
Elridge R. Dufee, Jr.
If, as has been said, war is too important to be left to the military, certainly delicate diplomatic negotiations should neither be conducted, nor influenced, by table-tennis teams.
- The Case for the Carrier
Capt. Wynn V. Whidden, USN
An aircraft carrier is like a good credit rating, or an adequate insurance policy in that, when you desperately need one, it is far too late to try to acquire one.
- The First Three
In this, Part II of a three-part presentation, the author tells us about the first three aircraft purchased by the Navy and about the three men chosen to fly them.
- N.J.R.O.T.C Diary
Cadet P02 Larry Watson
A recent graduate of a California high school recalls some of the problems and pleasures of the first year of Reserve Officer Training at his school.
- Authority: The Weakened Link
Lt. Cdr. Rill Clark Dean, USN
Because officers and petty officers no longer exercise the authority they once did, the chain of command is immeasurably weakened.
- Merchant Marine Licenses: Tickets Worth Having
Capt. William R. Hayler, USN (Ret.)
Few naval officers know anything about merchant marine licensing requirements. One thing is particularly worth knowing and remembering: the holder of such a license knows his stuff.
