    The Remarque obituary is very pertinent to this list's discussion
    of war guilt and soldiers. The writer of the Times' obit, Alden
    Whitman, is himself of interest. He was a Communist Party member
    from 1935 to 1948, was hauled before the Senate Internal Security
    Committee, was indicted for contempt for refusing to name others
    while admitting his own membership, won before the U.S. Supreme
    Court, was reindicted by Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, but won
    in District court. So he was under constant threat of
    imprisonment for eleven years.
