W HEN Lord Louis Mountbnttcn, cousin of the King of England, took charge as chief of the Commandos in October, 1941, he set plans nfoot for the invasion of a pare of the occupied coast where the Na/is would least expect it. He chose Vaagso, in Norway, where the Commandos had executed a brilliant raid which proved costly in men and materials to the Germans. On \ aagso and the island of Maaloy were a number of valuable factories shipping vital fish oils to Germany. There was considerable shipping in the harbors, and the Nazi occupation troops were garrisoned in force to guard the plants. Coast Drawings copyrisht, 19-13. by King Features They poured -shells in. The weather evened off and the landings began. artillery emplacements dotted the shore, and radio'direc- tional apparatus and communications stations were scattered throughout the place. . . . _ .

Brewster as they might have been. We truly have reasons for being thankful this Thanksgiving," he concluded. Guy Watkins was a guest of the club at the luncheon. Bill Nichols was introduced as a new member of the club, and was welcomed by Paul Gaston. Let Us Give Thanks By S. BURTON HEATH It is much easier this year than it was last year, or even in 1941, to enumerate blessings for which we . should and do give heartfelt thanks. The tide oC war has turned. Everywhere, throughout the world, the United Nations arc on the offensive. Africa has been recaptured. The Mediterranean is OUR sea. A third of Italy has been taken, and the Italian people now are our allies. We control the airways and the waters that lie under them. We arc bombing the stuffing out of Hitler's Europe, while he can launch only an occasional nuisance raid ag'ainst Allied territory. We have the submarine menace pretty.well licked, at least, temporarily. In the Pacific we have begun pressing the Japs back toward Tokyo. Our planes arc destroying their planes in an almost unbe- be close to 10,000. These arc Uncio Sam's nieces and although nearly [all the stories you have heard I about bad living conditions in Washington arc true, the lucky ones of Girl Town are well taken care of. IJM ihe Virginia side, the girls have their own hospital where services are free. They have cafeterias, night schools, dress shops, indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, beauty parlors, and they soon own movie and SOUGHT will have their newspaper. For practically nothing they can get a $45 personality grooming course that sets them off as well as if they had been through one of the swank beauty parlors on Fifth Avenue. For a pittance, they can get elementary or refresher courses in shorthand, typing, some foreign languages. The courses are offered under the direction of Na- ICAUGHT lievablc ratio ot seven to one. It is becoming almost suicidal for Nipponese shipping to venture near the war urea. Last year we had to prod ourselves, and needle our imaginations, to think up reasons for Thanksgiving. Actually, we' had little more that was substantial than our traditional American cockiness, our foolish but comforting inner feeling that we arc too great a nation to be beaten. All that is changed. Now we see daylight ahead. We can even begin thiriging in specific terms of a date for Victory—ISM-!/ if Fortune is kind, for Germany, 194!i or 1946 for Japan. The war isn't yet won. It isn't yet beyond losing. We have progressed thus far because we put almost everything we had into the war. We must continue giving everything. Let us be thankful that, when the lime came to give, we had what it is taking to save this world for free men and women -and children. Blevins School to Observe Book Week Mure than 75 parents ami about MO high school boys and yii'ls visited the elementary school and ehilren's division of the Blevins Branch library last week. Each room, had a display of books. Some outstanding ones shewed books about farm animals -anil farm lite, American boys and girls, Our Heroes, Mother Goose, the Circus, Types of Books and Neighbors to the South. New books to I/.-; added to the library were displayed in the halls. The county libvi.vy also had interesting dispinyt, "f "Books of Other Days" and "Books o£ Special Interest to Boys." Miss Johnnie Lou Epperson's room won the prize book for getting the most Farm Bureau Group Closes Conference Rev. Tom Brewster was, guest speaker at today's Kiwanis ;&Jub luncheon at the Hotel Henry, and based his talk on the small percentage of people who really are thankful for things happening to them. He prefaced his remarks by quoting a passage from the Bible which stated that of ten persons healed by Christ', only one returned to .give thanks for the miracle. Only one out of each 400 letters received at the Dead Letter office each year is a letter of thanks for some favor received. He stated that he look over the pastorate of the local Presbyterian Church in May, 1933, right in the middle of the depression. He extended financial aid to 25 people during u certain period of this time, and kept a record of each case. All of them promised to repay him when financially able, and to write him within a short time and let him know how they were getting •along. One of the 25 was a preacher, and all were cases of merit. To this date, he stated, not a one has ever written him, and he has not received a single cent refund for the assistance he, gave them. "Has the United States as a nation developed an ingratitude complex?" he asked. 'Are we a nation guilty of forgelfulncss to the One who is responsible for all good gifts? Since last Thanksgiving we as a nation have done.much. We have achieved victories on land, sea ,air, and even beneath the surface of the sea. There have been casualties, but not nearly so great Many Students to Appear in School Pageant A large cast of students will appear in the Thanksgiving pageant presented by the Junior-Senior High School in the High School auditor ium tonight at 7:30. "This is the largest pageant o: its -kind ever presented in Hope. It is a historical pageant dealing with the different periods of American history. Practically every department in school has cooperated in the production Of this historical pageant. Over 200 students make up the cast," stated James H. Jones, superintendent. The cast is as follows: John—Bobby Chastain. Jane—Peggy Marie Pentecost. Leader—Peggy McNeil. Spirit of Flags — Bobby Jewell Roberts. Thanksgiving Eve Dance at Legion A 'Thanksgiving five dance at the American Legion hall, across from the postoffice, will feature the music of Gene Galloway and eleven "Wonders of Swing." An unusually large crowd is .expected as this is the only dance of the current season so far. The Legion hall affords ample space and ta>ble service will be available Admission is $1.05 per person. -Killed In Action Washington, Nov, 24 — MP) — Two Arkansans were among the 2G1 United- States sbldiers 'reported by he War Department today as killed n ^action* ; T-Sgt.

The federation also called for enactment of legislation to "end the closed shop with enforced i rayon. leaders with other groups to acquire monopolistic controls over prices and production." In addition to an 11-poinl "statement of policy," the convention adopted 30 resolutions covering a variety of subjects including those advocating coordination of all agriculture department educational functions under the direction of the land grant college (Agricultural Extension Service) system; expansion o£ the stale forestry department functions, elimination of consumer subsidies, and opposition to State Flood Group to Meet Friday Little Rock, Nov. 23 (/P) The State Flood Control Commission will meet here Friday morning, Nov. 26, Chairman John P.

They have bowling alleys, their own girl orchestra, amateur dramatics, sewing machines they may use for making their own clothes or making over last year's duds. The girls have a sense of humor about their "town." They generally refer to it ; as "No Man's Land," "Hair Ribbon Village," "Femmo Acres," and "Hairpin Town." Most of the girls who live in these dormitories work either for the. army or navy, principally because these departments have had the greatest expansion in employment and have top priority on government housing projects. The girls pay from $16.50 to $24.i>U a month for their rooms which, even under rent ceilings ' existing elsewhere in the District, is just about bottom rentals for anything outside the slum areas. The girls have their problems, loo, but most of them can be summed up in two words: Men and transportation. The shortage of men is one of the chief topics of conversation in Girls Town. Recre- actional. committees are struggling to overcome that. Dances to which service men are invited and other forms of entertainment designed to attract the males are planned frequently, but after all supply dates for 10,000 girls in this man-shy town is almost an impossible hurdle/ The Public Buildings Administration is working on the transporta- ion problem, too; trying to get the city's already overtaxed bus system to set up new v° L| t es un d improve service and charges on those already existing. One of the ironies of wartime Washington is that the girls in PBA, which has charge of Girl Town, can't live there. Their priority ratings aren't high enough. mothers to come.
