H IS FACE TURNED toward the wall, George stole "a quid; glance nt the man climbing the stairs. It was Paul Roecler. George's mind was made up—Paul must not be entangled in the web of tragedy. But Roecler, instead of entering his flat, stopped on the landing and turned around. "George!" he called.. Without answering, George went downstairs. Rocder, at his side in two leaps, grabbed him by the arm. '"George!" he said. "Didn't you recognize me just now?" Suddenly he sounded hurt: "It has taken you three "They poured a torrent of questions at him." years to remember Paul again. Oh, well-come along anyhow." Without saying a word, George followed his friend. Paul pressed the doorbell. Even wnile its ring still echoed, there came a thunderstorm of banged doors, children's loud voices, and Licsel Roedcr's "Well, I'll be darned!" Seated around the kitchen table, Paul and Liesel poured a torrent of questions at George. He gave the fmcjonswcrs that came into his head. Finally Liesel took the children off to bed and George turned to Paul. "Perhaps you can spare me a few marks," he said. "I've got to get away "I can't slay ...

CL SMITH Owner often, however, it is the Americans, Dutch or Australians who fly out over the Indian ocean, the Ara- fura sea, the Flores sea, the sea of Timor or Banda seg to Japanese- held islands to do bombing. An average of 1QO sorties a month have been run by Allied forces. First Lt. Leroy A. Shaltuck of Pepperell, Mass., n former faculty member of Darmouth and Carnegie Tech. says the average flight is 12 lioui-i: or longer. Much of the Hying is over water to get a.t concentrated Japanese forces in the East Indies. The principal targets are Celebes island, where Makassar, Ken- dan, Sorong and Babo often are hit; Timor island with its enemy bases at Koepang, Penfoei and Lantern, Amboinn island where Japanese headquarters are said to he loc-aled at Ambon, and near Laha. Ralikpapan has been bombed thr.ee times in the longest raids of the war. The Selaru islands and Soernbu island are on what fliers call the "milk run." These fliers are a tough bunch, living in open country overrun by kangaroos, wallabies, buffaloes and aboriginals who have sort of I forsaken their own tribal warp to watch war in the modern .fashion. Young American fliers here are under the command of Lt. Col. William A. Miller of St. Louis. They fly Liberators bearing such unwar- rior-like names as "Miss Giving " "Snafu." "Five-By-Five." The Dutchmen fly medium bombers. They hit often and the Americans say they hit hard. Aussie and English fliers have Spitfires that helped save England from the Luftwaffe. They Blevins -S/Sgt. Joe L.

Navy Coach Worried Ove* Irish Game Annapolis, Md., Oct. 27 — (ff 1 )— It was a toss-up today whether the mud on the navy practice field was thicker than the gloom emanating from the premises of Capt. .John E. Whelchel, head coach of the Middies who go to Cleveland Saturday for their supreme grid lest with Noire Dame. A heavy four-inch rainfall almost washed away yesterday's muclv needed practice session. Whe-uhel announced several of his key players were laid up with injuries and colds. Possibly figuring any definite information might give aid and comfort to the enemy. Whelchel refused to name the casualties, but he dicai't disguise his concern. I won't name them," the coach, said. "We'll just hope that they recover quickly, and we'll have to take our chances on that." Whelchel's big job will be to try. and break his club's habit of gel- ting off to a bad first quarter start and then spending the rest of the day catching up with the opposition. -He knows if the fighting Irish ever get the jump, the game will be just about over for the Middies. Navy's line appears to be about as tough as Notre Dame's and upon the Middies slopping the fast-opening plays featured by the Irish T formation may depend a national championship. ****-<&. __ TO BUILD NEW PLANT Little Rock, Oct. 27 —UP) The Southwest Handle and Manufacturing Company plans to conslruct a new plant here to employ aboul 100 Five QU5CK .RELIEF FROM Symptoms of Distress Arising from STOMACH.
