F IRST MATE MUNTE, who had risen from fireman in the German navy to command of the Gisquet Lighthouse when the Nazis overran France, was a petty German with a petty German's vast sense of his own importance. Casquet, on one of the Channel Islands, was n nice, peaceful spot in the cauldron of war which is the English Channel.--You'.obeyed orders, filled out your reports, made subordinates toe the mark and the Party would take care of you when Der Tag of victory came. Muntc, fat-jowled snd scowling with concentration, sat at nil desk filling out a report shortly before midnight. He heard a click at the door and bounced up in fury. This was unthinkable! No one entered his office without knocking! Whert Munte. faced'the door his jaw fell and the quick blood of fear started Bounding in his ears. There were two men leaning against the closed door, their faces black, their khaki uniforms rumpled and. wet at the ankles, each \vith a Colt's automatic held in a relaxed hand. Panic gripped Alunte and he swayed on his feet for a moment, men fainted dead away. One of the men walked over and brought him back to consciousness by slapping his.fat cheeks. He was In a small boat... "Halts maul!" said the man with the black face. It was an order any German understands. In English it means "keep your tr.ip shut," and Muntc obeyed with a whimper. In a few minutes he was in a small boat, bobbing oii the treacherous waters that surge about the lighthouse he failed to guard. "I've got a woman here," a black-faced man spoke up from the shore. He and a number of men in khaki had rounded up the force of eight guards and wireless operators that composed Muntc's staff. But it! wasn't a woman. Some of the Germans olT watch were found peacefully The lighthouse was blasted.. nslecp, in pnjnntns, their heads liouiul up in hair tiers! Less thnri live hours after thcv opened Muntc's door the black-faced men were hack in England with their prisoners, the lighthouse and its radio equipment reduced to ruins. These men in khaki, their faces and hands blacked like troupers in a minstrel show, were Coin&, mandos, thc fabulous soldiers who have been giving t'lfj Nil/is an ever-increasing dose of the invasion jitters with their raids on enemy-held territory from Narvik, Norway in thc north, to Bordeaux in occupied I'Y.ince.

Kansas, the letter follows "We have received a shipment of khilted garments from nn American Red Cross representative nl this field and upon inspection find that your chapter knitted some of the Hems." "We wish to thank you very much and assure you they will be gladly accepted by thc men. Men in the guard squadron are on duty for long periods of lime on the oulside nnd the temperature in this section certainly requires thnt very warm clothing be worn," "The job of guarding the -vital installation on this field is of most importance to the war effort, arrd H is quite important thai Ihe men be kept as comfortable as possible." "Again I wish to thank you on behalf of my men for Ihe articles we have received," If there were any doubt about the disposition of articles knitted by local volunteers in thc pasl, Ihe doubts must certainly be dispelled after reading LI. Keller's letter according to Mrs. Moore, who is today issuing an appeal for additional knitters. An emergency quota for 50 pairs of gloves has been received by the Red Cross here. Instructions, yarn, and needles can be secured Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday afternoons. All who can knit are urged to secure materials at Ihc Production rooms during Ihe specified lime.

Army Ordnance foxhole mechanics die dictating i evolutional y changes in the design of repair tools. Col. Keith F. Adamson, commanding Southwestern Proving Ground said today thai Ihe new caliber .30 carbine and Ihe new .submachine gun M3, popularly known 4 ns Ihe "vest-pocket howitzer", may be disassembled and re-assembled with no other tool than a cartridge. "While it is impossible to expect similar design simplicily for all unavoidable inlricale weapons required by our Invasion forces, ' Col. Adamson said, "Ihe emphasis today is on simplified repair tools." Weapons on hand at the outbreak of war are, in many instances, rapidly becoming obsolele. New and improved guns, lanks and ammunition had lo be designed, developed, manufactured, subjected lo rigorous lesls, and shipped overseas in a hurry by Ihe Or dnance Department, Army Service- Forces. Today, with these deadly new weapons in mass production, every consideration"is'given to the fact thai Ihey will have lo be maintained in foreign lands and repaired by Ordnance mechanics either at the front lines or wilhin range of enemy guns and planes. Design simplicily that does not cut down the terrific hilling power of our baltle weapons is a constant production target, "Repair tools of a few years ago," Col. Adamson, said, "were merely conversions or adaptations of civilian equipment. They were nol designed with an eye to ultimate use on.' the batllefield. Today we are insisting thai Ihe man al Ihe drafting table view his design from the perspective' of the soldier in Ihc foxhole, the amn inside a tank, or soldier who oper- ates and maintains antiaircraft batteries when enemy planes ,ire lurking just over Ihe"horizon. Our present ambition is lo provide our troops with the smallesl number of speed lools, and equipment that will do the gicciksl numbei of efficient jubs. Col. Adamson cited a recent Ordnance improvement in the midget socket set — an important part of each Ordnance mechanic's tool kit. .Approximately 000,000 of these sel$ were on order. Bui. experience showed that it was possible to eliminate 3 pieces from the! set, add one new piece and without the loss of efficiency, save 182,418 manhours in manufacture. 1029120 pounds of steel y?3G t40 of tdxpajois moncj.Mnd thousands of Ordnance manhours i n clist bution and maintenance.

The handsome, well - groomed Marquis thus backed up the alibi set forth' by de Marigny, who is on tnal foi the muidei of his rich father-in-law. A crown witness, Coroner L.W. Fitzmaunce, previously had said ' Sir Harry died four to six hours after his last meal—or between 1:30 and 3:30 a. m. Special prosecutor A.F. Adderley quickly pointed out there were dif- fai'ences in detail between the story told by de Visdelou and that given bv de Mai igny when he took th<* ,sland last week to defend him' self and deny any connection with the crime. Nervous and excited, de Visde- lou said he talked to de Marigny at 1:30 a.m. when the latter came to Jits apaitment and asked wheth era his friend wanted him to take blonde Belly Roberts home.

From now on he would take over the night calls, calling David only, if the case warranted a consultation His time had been full, he had seen very little of Nancy, She was always out, it seemed. Frank Edgar came for her frequently. Jim had met and rather liked him, a big handsome man, his own age, or a little younger, with gay dark eyes and a square vital sort .of face. Edgar had slipped back into civilian life with comparative ease and the only indication he gave that he had seen the war was that he never spoke of it. He never explained his injury but Elsie Edgar took care of that. Cranberry knew all about him and so did not have ;o ask questions. The weather had changed, and jecome excessively warm. David returning from a stall' meeting at .he hospital, .complained of a chill. Jim put him to bed, and took over, despite David's struggles There was nothing the matter I \VJth him, he'd be damned if he'd Stay in bed. But he did, almost contentedly, because M ill i cent stayed home from her interminable engagements to fuss over, and read to him, to see' that he took his medicine promptly. Jim was driving back from a call when he saw Emily walking from the bus. He waved, whistled and slid to a stop beside the curb.. & She climbed in gratefully, discard ing her hat. "U's hot," he sqid, "and you look tired." • "I am. How's Dad?" "All right. It's a light case I we can keep him in bed he'll be as good as new by the end of the week." She nodded. Presently she said slowly, "You think it's hot—out here? You should have been with me today. . . ." She looked at him, hei eyes heavy with fatigue. "My job sometimes includes some of the mill workers' homes. The stocking mills. They're a disgrace to the town, I'd like to give Frank Edgai a piece of my mind." "He'd rather have a piece of Nancy's mind," said Jim lightly. She thought, gravely, So that's now it is. She had seen the look in his eyes. She said, quickly, "They're old friends, of course, and Nancy was pretty bored till he came back and started taking her to the beach and the club." She changed the subject. "Were you at the hospital today, Jim?" "Yep. . . .» "You know about the polio case n the mill section?" ' He nodded. "I'd heard." "If we have an epidemic . . " # * * WHEN they reached home she " hurried to bathe and change before going in to see her father. When she went downstairs gain it was to find that Frank Edgar had arrived for supper. "Hi, Emily," Frank greeted her, rinning. He was staring at her. He was saying, "And'you used to be such a homely kid! Nancy was always peaches and cream, but you—" Nancy came in, "Sorry,", she said— "Hello Emily . . ." "You needn't be," said Frank, "I was just making a discovery." "What discovery?" "Emily . . ." "She's nice," said Nancy, smiling. "Lord, I'm starved. How's Dad, Emily?" "Better . . ." "I ought to run up and see him," Nancy told them. "I haven't been lear him all day." "Don't get too near," said Epaily warningly. "Remember." But Nancy was out of thf TOorn, ivas running up the stairs. A mo- nent later Jim came out into the :iall from the office and followed ner.

Library Notes Among the new books recently placed on the shelves at the Hempstead County Library is "Dunny- brook" by Gladys Hasty Carroll, author of "As the Earth Turns." Readers of 'As the Earth Turns" have long been waiting-for Mrs. Carroll to write another book of that kind. Now she has done it. Here once again we have all the charm insight and character, the quaint customs, the solid virtues, the genuine appeal which made that first novel so widely read. "Dunnybrook" is the story of a community of people and their aspirations through the years; of men who wrest a livelihood from the bleak Maine hills, or farm, or fish, .or go to war; of women who love, suffer, and die; of the new generations that are born. The reader finds himself fascinated by the story of Jane Warren and her husband and children, wayward beautiful Nancy whom life at last tamed; sweet high-spirited Lynda, who married a lonesome-hearted man. Wherever Mrs. Carroll's theme leads her are astonishingly real human people. Although the story has, the glamour, the romance, the excitement of a novel, it is, in fact, true. "None But the Lonely Heart" by the author of "How Green Was My Valley," Richard Llewellyn, is another new book available at the Library. Llewellyn's book reveals the depth of humanity rarely found in modern fiction. It is a story which looks life straight in the eyes and blinks ~at nothing. In' this book Llewellyn looks at life through the eyes of Ernie Molt, an inarticulate London Cockney whose horizon is bounded by mean streets; whose only recreation is the tawdry Fun Fair; whose ambition is to be "in the money"; for whom women are a source of tan talizing and unsatisfied desire.
