        A Comparison of the Use of Nike and Zeus in Antiaircraft Defense

      George S. Pappas, Fort Bliss, Texas, 1949-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Manila folder bound. Softcover. Handtyped and illustrated by author. Good binding and cover. Shelfwear. Secret stamps on each page and illustration, blacked out. Library of Congress Duplicate stamp on front cover. Espionage Act stamp to front cover and inside cover. Foldout map and illustrations on inside folder on back flap. Letter from Col. Joseph C. Moore relating his comments on this monograph. Clean, unmarked pages. This Secret document is an early study of comparison of the Nike and Zeus project at the forefront of the Cold War. Project Nike was a U.S. Army project, proposed in May 1945 by Bell Laboratories, to develop a line-of-sight anti-aircraft missile system. The project delivered the United States' first operational anti-aircraft missile system, the Nike Ajax, in 1953. Given that the Nike Zeus project was not started until the late 1950s, the Zeus in this document is most likely the Nike Ajax missile. In the end of this document the author suggests that either the Nike program be scrapped or modified to be more suitable for use by troops and that the Zeus missile should be the future focus of the project. Colonel George S. Pappas enlisted in the U.S. Army in June of 1939 and was assigned to the 6th Coast Artillery Regiment at Fort Winfield Scott. While stationed there, he attended the West Point Preparatory School and was admitted to the U.S. Military Academy three years after Colonel Short. Graduating on D-Day in 1944, he received a commission with the Anti-Aircraft and Air Defense Artillery at Schofield Barracks Army Base in Honolulu, Hawaii. After World War II, he attended the University of Wisconsin, graduating with a Master's degree in Journalism in 1949 and then worked at West Point in the 1950s. Following an appointment to the Commander-in-Chief of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the completion of courses at the Command and General Staff College, Colonel Pappas went to Korea with the 8th Army. Upon graduating from the U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks in 1966, he was assigned to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), the central command of NATO military forces. He returned to the Army War College as Assistant Chief of the Research and Publications Branch and was instructed to write a comprehensive history of the college; this work was published in 1967 under the title Prudens Future: The U.S. Army War College, 1901-1967. With this task accomplished, he turned his attention to building the U.S. Army Military Research Collection (MHRC). By 1970, it had become the central historical repository for the entirety of the U.S. Army's collection. The majority of the Colonel Pappas collection now resides at the Center of Military History.

        Original charcoal and gouache drawing of an old woman wearing a white head scarf, 9 ½ x 13 inches, on brown paper, inscribed "Your sincere friend Mina Loy", undated but circa 1949-1952

      - Although best known as one of the most important early modernist poets, Mina Loy was highly regarded as an artist. In drawings, paintings, collages, decorated lampshades, and relief constructions, she earned the admiration of Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, among many others. She attended art schools in London, Munich, and Paris and exhibited at some of the more famous art shows of the early 20th Century, including the 1905 Salon d'Automne in Paris, the 1914 Free Exhibition of International Futurists in Rome, the 1917 Independents' Exhibition in New York City, in addition to being shown later at the gallery of her son-in-law, Julien Levy, in New York. By the early 1950s, Loy was living in a small apartment in New York City, where her most ambitious art works, the assemblages and constructions based on her experiences and encounters with the down and out in the Bowery, were created.This drawing, which is undated, must have been done between 1949-1952, during the period when Loy was living in Irene Klempner's communal boarding house in the Bowery, a period in which Loy's intense interest in the life around her was engaged: "From Mina's perspective, the bums represented her lifelong fear of "outcasting." To most people they were human wreckage, indistinguishable in their grime and degradation, but in her eyes they were individuals with habits and histories. Within weeks of her move to Stanton Street, she had made friends with the regulars and introduced them to members of the household as "red" or "Whitey." . . . she sketched them from her window and sent them on errands so that she could give them a quarter." Loy began making assemblages using materials found on the streets of the Bowery, at the same time as she was writing poems such as "Hot Cross Bum": "While writing "Hot Cross Bum," Mina was constructing Bowery scenes with materials which, like her poetic images, were taken from the street. Like Picasso's collages, Mina's assemblages were incongruous couplings of commonplace objects, and like Duchamp's ready-mades, they seemed to thumb their nose at middle-class culture. But unlike either of these innovative recyclers, Mina brought to her shabby materials an acute sense of the cost involved for those who searched the garbage cans: rather than passing as outsides, as they avant-garde had done, they actually lived at the bottom of the heap. . . . In these new works, she was reflecting on her own perspective, that of a person of higher status looking from her window at the derelicts below. But to understand her constructions, one had to see through her eyes. When she showed the bums in low relief, she mocked an artistic trend that made it unthinkable to treat subjects of such low status that they went "on relief." And while her objects adopted the outside stance of the Salon des Refusés, her refuse was recombined not to assail artistic convention, as Duchamp had done, but to make it more responsive. As a name for these disturbing objects, she proposed "Refusees" - a punning blend of refuse, Refusés, and refugees, which summed up her long itinerary from West Hampstead to the Bowery." - Carolyn Burke, Becoming Modern: The Life of Mina Loy (N. Y.: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1996), pp. 409-420. The touching inscription on this drawing suggests the possibility that it might have been given to the subject of the drawing, although we have no way of tracing provenance back to its original owner. In light of the fact that the drawing was done on a piece of scrap paper, as its edges indicate, and may well have been given to the subject, a woman Mina Loy met on the Bowery, the drawing is in very good condition. Framed and glazed.

        Autographed Letter Signed about an alleged Error in Gone With The Wind; about a supposed Chronological Error with Scandalous Effects

      Atlanta, Georgia: Margaret Mitchell (in reaction to The Reader's Digest & The Atlanta Journal), 1949. Original (3 pieces). Envelope. Very Good/Envelope Good. Autograph Letter Penned & Signed characteristically "M.M.M." [Margaret Mitchell Marsh] by the famed American Author on a Small Folio (8.5" x 14") page copied from "The Atlanta Journal," June 19, 1949; with a marginal ink note in the left margin of "The Atlanta Journal" from the recipient, Dr. Mayo, docketed "July 5 - 1949"; accompanied by the original envelope addressed by Mitchell to "Dr. C.E. Mayos / 612 West 13 St. / Davenport / Iowa." [stamp and partial postmark cut away leaving only "5 ATLA... Jul /10..19.../ G]; with Mitchell's return address on the envelope flap preprinted as: "1268 Piedmont Avenue, N. E. / Apartment 3 / Atlanta 5, Georgia." Dr. Mayos has written on the envelope: "Letters from / Margaret Mitchell [slight paper loss] / Please save." plus, a copy of the July,1949, edition of "The Reader's Digest" containing a short entry under "Facts to the Contrary"(page 18) in which contributor Clemmie R. Galloway pointed out a "discrepancy in time between the death of Melanie's husband in the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1, 1863, and the birth of her son during the siege of Atlanta, September 3, 1864...." We offer Margaret Mitchell's irritated reaction to a late-blooming literary SCANDAL over whether RHETT Butler had been the REAL FATHER of Melanie's child? Because of Mitchell's supposedly faulty internal chronology in Gone With The Wind, some readers thought that Melanie's husband Ashley had died at Gettysburg during early July of 1863--more than a year before Melanie had borne a son during the siege of Atlanta on September 3rd, 1864. As a consequence of this supposed mistake, enthusiasts of the novel and its larger-than-life characters eagerly speculated that dashing Rhett had had a compromising affair with saintly Melanie during her husband's absence! In the July, 1949 edition of "The Reader's Digest," contributor Clemmie R. Galloway published a small entry under "Facts to the Contrary," in which he accused Mitchell of a "discrepancy in time between the death of Melanie's husband in the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1, 1863, and the birth of her son during the siege of Atlanta, September 3, 1864...." The entry was read by many! Galloway went on to say that "When the publisher called Margaret Mitchell's attention to the timing, the author was silent for a moment; then she said, 'Well, I know the Yankees will never change the date of the Battle of Gettysburg, and I'm certainly not going to change the date of the Battle of Atlanta.' The publisher moved uncomfortably in his chair, 'But--how will we explain it to the public, Miss Mitchell?' Miss Mitchell shrugged, 'Let's hope they will be so interested in the story they will overlook the discrepancy of time, if not,' she added, 'we'll just say that southern women do things more leisurely.'" Penned shortly before her untimely death a few weeks later on August 16th, Mitchell penned a quick note in the lower right of this broadside reprinting the June 19, 1949, scandalous edition of "The Atlanta Journal," which was headlined "Row Over Melanie's Baby / Peggy Mitchell Hits / Magazine 'Falsity.'" Addressed to "Dr. M," (Dr. Mayos, a psychiatrist with whom she had corresponded since the mid-1930's), Mitchell expressed her disbelief and ire regarding Galloway's slanderous write-up. In full: "Dear Dr. M -- This is one of the reasons why I haven't answered your nice letter. This stupid false hood is causing us a lot of trouble. May be you can figure why they'd print such an error but I can't! Don't forget to let us know before you come through Atlanta next time. We'd love to meet you. M.M.M. [meaning: Margaret Mitchell Marsh, a characteristic initialled signature used by the author.]" On the envelope is a penned ink note from Dr. Mayo: "Letter from / Margaret Mitchell / Please save." "The Atlanta Journal "article includes Margaret Mitchell's rebuttal in which she notes that Ashley DID NOT DIE at Gettysburg on July 3-4-5, 1863, but "As a matter of fact, Ashley never did die in the book." Indeed, he was interned as a POW in notorious Rock Island Prison, Illinois, after which he was released and returned home. As noted, we offer three companion pieces: 1) an Autograph Letter Signed by Margaret Mitchell (November 8, 1900 -- August 16, 1949) on a personally embarrassing and aggravating copy of "The Atlanta Journal" headline article from "The Atlanta Journal" sheet with the ink date "july 5 - / 1949" in its left margin. r June 19, 1949; & 2) her personal envelope of transmission addressed by the renowned author to a longtime friend, psychiatrist Dr. C.E. Mayos of 612 West 13 St, Davenport, Iowa; annotated by him "Letter from Margaret Mitchell"; plus 3) a copy of "The Reader's Digest" for July, 1949, containing the brief entry under "Facts to the Contrary" (p.18) about the chronological error supposedly made by Mitchell in Gone With The Wind that had unexpected, embarrassing ripple-effects. Condition: Margaret Mitchell's letter is in very good condition, with three horizontal mailing folds on "The Atlanta Journal" small folio sheet on which her letter has been penned. The folds have been professionally strengthened verso. Some light soiling and age-toning; faint rust mark from a paperclip upper left corner. Her envelope of transmission has some tears with slight wear and soil. The July 1949 copy of "The Reader's Digest" is surprisingly bright, clean, and tight. We shall provide a Certificate of Authenticity and another from the party from whom we obtained this very special piece.

        Lettres de guerre de Jacques Vaché, suivies d'une nouvelle, précédées de quatre préfaces d'André Breton

      Paris, K éditeur, 30 avril 1949, in-12, non paginé, environ 70 pp, broché, couverture rempliée imprimée, Édition en partie originale, exemplaire non justifié. Complet du bandeau "préfaces d'André Breton". Recueil de lettres de Jacques Vaché envoyées à André Breton, Théodore Fraenkel, Louis Aragon et Harry James alors qu'il était au front, ou en prison. Ces lettres sont précédées de quatre préfaces d'André Breton, grand ami de Vaché, qui eut une profonde influence sur lui et sur le mouvement surréaliste. Breton écrira à propos de ces lettres de guerre qu'elles sont "une magnifique introduction à tout ce qui recouvre l'étiquette Dada. Il y a là tous les manifestes qu'on voudra, pas une négation ne manque" dans une lettre à Jacques Doucet datant du 4 janvier 1921. En fin d'ouvrage, l'article L'Opium, extrait de L'Express de l'Ouest du 9 janvier 1919, reproduit en fac-similé, dans lequel est annoncée la mort de Jacques Vaché et de l'un de ses amis, à la suite de l'absorption d'une trop forte dose d'opium et dans lequel les deux victimes sont présentées à la fois comme de "jeunes écervelés" sans expérience de la drogue ainsi que comme "de braves soldats qui avaient fait leur devoir devant l'ennemi et avaient été blessés". L'ouvrage contient aussi un fac-similé d'une lettre d'Harry James. Bel exemplaire.

Wraps. "The discoverer of information theory examines cryptology [ cryptography ] in the terms of that theory: redundancy, entropy, equivocation. Shannon develops formulas that enable the cryptanalyst to tell when a solution in a particular cipher system is valid. He discusses perfect secrecy (absolutely unbreakable cipher) and ideal secrecy (practically unbreakable ciphers) and work characteristics needed to solve different kinds of cipher...." Secret Writings: Selected Works on Modern Cryptology, p324-5 Claude Shannon was an American mathematician perhaps best known as the founder of the field of information theory. Shannon showed the theoretical and practical foundation for digital circuits (1938), the mathematical foundation for the internet (1948) and this paper, a foundational work in Cryptography. Shannon even wrote a paper on computer chess. For the work in this paper, Shannon was appointed ''as a consultant on cryptographic matters to the United States Government'' (Elwood, Shannon Collected Papers, p. xiii) The work presented in this paper appeared originally in a confidential report ''A Mathematical Theory of Cryptography'' dated Sept 1, 1945 but was classified at the time due to World War II. Schulman, An Annotated Bibliography of Cryptography, p122, noting "Theoretical and mathematical aspects of ciphers." Not in Galland. See also Kahn, The Code Breakers for a discussion of this paper and Shannon's impact.
