T HE parties of Canadians reinforcing the heavity-bcset Commandos on the beach at Dieppe fought their way step-by step to the westernmost end of the sea wall. One group made up of eleven French-Canadians under Scrgt. Uubuc,: battled back eastward along the main street of the town. They destroyed a machine gun nest at a street corner and, arriving, at a dock basin in Dieppe's inner harbor, killed of wounded all the Gentians on small craft there..They pressed on eastward but were met by a larger German force. Outnumbered, their ammunition gone, they surrendered. The Germans made them take off their Dubuc carried him ... clothes and the Canadians, stripped to their underwear, were lined up against a'vpoll. When the rest of the Nazi group left, Dubuc distracted the sentry's attention. The Canadians rushed in, killed him, ami made off towards the beach in their underwear. At,the beach Dubuc found his commanding officer, Lieut. Col. Menard; seriously wounded. Disobeying Alcnard's orders to leave him, Dubuc carried him to a tending barge, rushed back and took a badly wounded corporal aboard. On his return to England Duhuc was awarded theMilitary Medal. The Royal Marine Commando, last of the reserves The reserves were sent in. held at sea, were sent in and met with murderous fire. But not all the • landing craft readied the beach. On board one of them-was the commanding officer of the Marines, Lieut. Col. J. P. Phillips. The sea front of Dieppe was brilliant in the sun after the landing craft had passed through a belt of smoke lying on the Channel, and Phillips suddenly realized the 'd'cadly danger facing the Commandos! Far from being clear of the enemy, as the military force commander had visualized, the beach was swept by their concentrated fire. Phillips determined to halt the'landing if, he could. Putting on a pair of white Phillips halted them. gloves so his hands could be seen easily, he jumped on the forward deck of his landing barge and signaled the re' (mining craft to put about and return to the smoke screen. They saw his hands moving and understood his meaning, and as they began to turn Phillips fell to the deck, mortally wounded. But bv his action he had saved the lives of two hundred of his men. By this time the command realized that the headlands to the cast and west of Dieppe had not been taken in time to permit entry into the town, and the decision to withdraw was niacle.

By ROBBIN COONS Hollywood — There was color and excitement entirely surrounded by boredom out on Metro's back lot today. The set for "Kismet" was vast and impressive — the great palace of the king, with the high silver doors and the broad, many stairs leading up from the wide courtyard below. Through the courtyard an exolically-garbed mob chased a fleeing Ronald Colman and cap- lured him. Black guards, bare bucks shining in the warm autumnal sun, surrounded him with menacing spears, gold-tipped, and marched him up to face the orilnal justice of richly robed, bearded Edward Arnold, waiting near the throne. That's what happened, when it finally happened. Under the warm sun, Director William Dielerle rehearsed sections of his mob, and assistants scurried about, placing this man, moving that one. Other extras in turbans and robes took thejr . leisure, waiting. Some sprawled and slept; some read; some conversed in little groups; sonic lackadaisically watched the proceedings. The afternoon was wearing away. Edward Arnold, who wasn't needed on the stairs, was sitting waiting for his call. We stopped to chat, and he told us about his fancy cooking, with gusto and relish. It was nostalgic talk — about how a steak should be barbecued right over the flames and not over slow hot coals. Then somebody called Arnold to put on his beard. "But I'll bet they won't gel to me today," he said, protesting good-naturedly. He wanted to go home. There were three Ronald Col- majis on the set. The real one vyas sittang, absently flicking a script, and looking as if he wanted to go home. There was another, similarly dressed, who had doubled for him in the chase scene. There was another, his stand-in, who was t>eing speared by the blacks while Dielerle lined up the shot. One of the blacks vvas smoking a big cigar, scarcely the thing (as the real Colman observed pleasantly) for a picture of 1,00.0 years £gp.

Far be it from, mo to assert that what everybody says must be true. Everybody is, often, as likely to be wrong as right. In the general experience, everybody has been wrong so often, and it has taken in most instances such a weary while to find out how wrong, that authority is proved to be fallible. Everybody may sometimes be right; "but that's no rule," as the ghost of Giles Scroggins says in the ballad. The dread word Ghost recalls me. Everybody said he looked like a haunted man. The extent of my present claim for everybody is, that they were so far right. He did. Who could have seen his hollow cheek, his sunken brilliant eye; his black-attired figure, indefinably grim, although well-knit and well- proportioned; his grizzled hair hanging, like tangled sea-weed, about his face but might have said he looked like a haunted man? Who could have observed his manner, taciturn, thoughtful, gloomy, with a distraught air of reverting to a bygone place and time, or of listening to some old echoes in his mind, but might have said it was the manner of a haunted man? Who could have heard his voice, slow-speaking, deep, and grave, but might have said it was the voice of a haunted man? Who that had seen him in his inner chamber, part library and part laboratory—for he was, as the world knew, far and wide, a learned man in chemistry, and a teacher on whose lips and hands a crowd of aspiring ears and eyes hung daily—who that had seen him there, upon a winter night, alone, surrounded by his drugs and instruments and books, would not have said that the man seemed haunted, and the chamber too? » * • V°U should have seen him in his * dwelling about twilight, in the dead winter time. When he sat gazing at the fire. When, as it rose and fell, the shadows went and came, . When the sounds that had arisen with the shadows, and come out of their lurking places at the twilight summons, seemed to make a deeper stillness all about him. When the wind iwas rumbling in the chimney, and sometimes crooning, sometimes howling, in the house. When the old trees outward were so shaken and beaten, that one querulous old rook, unable to sleep, protested now and then, in a feeble, dozy, high-up "Caw!" When, at intervals, the window trembled, the rusty vane upon the turret-top complained, the clock beneath it recorded that another quarter of an hour was gone, or the fire collapsed and fell in with a rattle. —When a knock came at hi$ door and roused him. "Who's that?" said he. "Come in!" Surely there had been no figure leaning on the back of his chair; no face looking over it. It is certain that no gliding footstep touched the floor as he lifted up his head with a start, and spoke. And yet there was no mirror in the room on whose surface his own ur, By Charles Dickens 1943.

Dispatches from Teheran said the conference atmosphere was one of extreme cordiality. The declaration by the three leaders concluded: "We came here with hope and determination. We leave here friends in fact, in spirit and in purpose." It was the first lime President Roosevelt and Premier Stalin had met. On the first day of the conference Stalin, accompanied only by his foreign minister, Vyascheslov Molotov, walked up the steps fo the Russian embassy compound, which was the president's residence during his stay. He left Molotov talking in an ante-room with Harry L. Hopkins, the president's official adviser, and strode on alone to come fact to face with Ihe American leader who had flown thousands of miles across ocean and desert for he rendezvous further cementing Allied unity in war and peace. It was believed to be the first .ime Stalin had-left Russia since the Communist revolution in 1917. The Russian embassy conference area, and Teheran itself, swarmed ivith Russian lommygunner guards, and even the embassy servants were packing pistols. Security measures were heightened because it was learned a number of German saboturs had been dropped by parachute in Iran a few weeks before the Big Three arrived. Most of them were reported captured. A number of Iranians whose loyalty was questioned, including at least one army officer, also were locked up during the conference. One of the ceremonious highlights of the conference at the foot of the snow-capped Slburz mountains was the presentation by Prime Minister Churchill of the "sword of Stalingrad" to'Premier Stalin a British recognition of the Russian heroes who turned the Nazi tide at Stalingrad last winter. , The text of the main declaration by the three leaders: "We, the president of the United States of America, the prime minister of Great Britain and the premier of the Soviet Union, have met these four days past in this capital of our ally, Iran,' and have shaped and confirmed our common policy. We -expressed our determination that our nations shall work together in the war and in the peace that till tional agencies" to deal with economic matters. The "surrender or die" ultima- Hum, which some had expected, was not forthcoming. Instead, the Big Three calmly and confidently told Germany they were going to crush her armed forces jn a three- sided assault and multiply the devastating air raids on her home soil. a Surely there had been no figure leaning on the backj>f his chair; IIP face Ipoking over it, ,-..----• form could have cast its sliadow for a moment: and Something had passed darkly and was gone! # * * «T'M humbly fearful, Sir," said a * fresh-colored busy man, holding the door open with his foot for the admission of himself and a wooden tray he carried, and let^ ting it" go again by very gentle and careful degrees, when he and the tray had got in, lest it should close noisily, "that it's a good bit past the time tonight. But Mrs. William has been taken off her legs so often—" "By the wind? Ay! I have heard it rising." "—By the wind, Sir—that it's a a mercy she, got home at all. Oh dear, yes. Yes. It was by the wind, Mr. Redlaw. By the wind." He had, by this time, put down, the tray for dinner, and was employed in lighting fee lamp, and spreading a cloth on the table. From this employment he desisted in a hurry, to stir and feed the fire. The lamp he had lighted and the blaze that rose under his hand, so quickly changed, the appearance of the room, that it seemed as if the mere coming in of his fresh red face and active) manner had made the pleasant alteration. "Mrs. William has been at it again, Sir!" said the keeper, as he ?tood warming a plate at the fire, and pleasantly shading his face with it. "What has she done?" "Why, Sir, not satisfied with being a sort of mother to all the young gentlemen that come up from a variety of parts, to attend your courses of lectures at this ancient foundation—" "Well?" said Mr. Redlaw. "That's just what I say myself, Sir," returned Mr. William, speaking over his shoulder, as the subject of his praises entered the room, bearing another tray and a lantern, and followed by a veneiv able old man with long gray hair. "Punctual, of course, Milly," said her husband, relieving her of the'tray, "or it wouldn't be you. Here's Mrs. William, sir! — He looks lonelier than ever tonight," whispering to his wife, as he was » takijjg the tray, "and ghostlier, altogether." (To Be Continued) will follow. "As to the war. our military staffs have joined in our roundtable discussions and we have concerted our-plans for the destruction of the German forces. We have reached complete agreement as to the scope and timing of operations which will be undertaken from the east, west and south, "The common understanding which we have here reached guarantees that victory will be ours. "And as to the peace, we are sure that our command will make it an enduring peace. We recognize fully the supreme responsibility resting upon us and all the United Nations to make a peace which will command the good will of the overwhelming masses of the peoples of the world and banish the scourge and terror of war for many generations. "With our diplomatic advisers we have surveyed the problems of the future. We shall seek the cooperation and active participation of all nations, large and small, whose peoples in heart and mind are dedicated, as are our own peoples, to the elimination of tyranny and slavery, oppression and intolerance. We will welcome them as they may choose to come into a world family of Democratic nations. "No power on earth can prevent our destroying the German armies by land, their U-boats by sea and their war plants from the air. Our attacks will be relentless and increasing. "From these friendly conference we look with confidence to the day when all the people of the world may live free lives untouched by tyranny and according to their varying desires and their own consciences. "We came here with hope and determination. We leave here friends in fact, in spirit and in purpose. Signed at Teheran, December 1, 1943. "Roosevelt Stalin Churchill." Details of Ihe military decisions reached naturally were not disclosed, but dispatches from Teheran said there was no talk of "a second front" circulating at the conference — an indication that subject already had been disposed of except for final details. Nor was anything specific concerning a multitude of post-war problems, such as the Russian-Polish boundaries, dealt with in the general declarations except for the leference to the principles of the Atlantic Charter and the desire to recuirt a world wide "family of Democratic nations." The statement on Iran spoke of post-war "conferences of interna- By JOHN F. CHESTER AND WILLIAM McGAFFIN Cairo, Egypt,. Dec. 6 — W)— President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and Premier Joseph Stalin have reached full 'agreement in a history-making four-day meeting at Teheran, Iran, on the strategy to decapitate the Nazi war machine and on plans, for the peace to come, it was announced today. A communique, signed at Teheran taut finally released in Cairo today, declared: "The common understanding which we have here reached guarantees that victory will be ours." A second communique, likewise signed by the three single words, 'Churchill,. Stalin, Roosevelt," reported complete agreement that .he government of Iran would receive postwar economic assistance, guaranteed Iran's territorial integrity and promised that country a | place at the peace table "together with all other peace-loving nations in the eslablishment of international peace and prosperity." Pointing to the possibility of a postwar confederation of nations, the chiefs of the three great Allied powers said in a declaration: "We will welcome them as they choose to come into the world family of democratic nations." The Iran statement likewise spoke of postwar "conferences of international agencies" . to . deal with all economic matters. The historic- meeting of the big three was held from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1 on a high plateau at the foot of the snow-capped peaks of the Elburz mountains. With their highest military chiefs, the three leaders agreed on a full scale war "from the east, the west and the south." An epochal final session was held at the picturesque Soviet embassy, starting, with; a luncheon Dec. 1. Surrounded by the most extraordinary security measures in history, highlighted by grim Soviet soldiers patrolling the streets with unlimbered tommyguns, the gray- mustached, calm, impassive Stalin was flanked at Teheran only by his foreign minister, Vyacheslav Molotov, and Marshal Klementi E. Vo- roshilov. Obviously pleased and gratified, President Roosevelt and Premier Churchill were encircled by' their each, Marshal, chief of staff ,of the United States army; Gen. Henry H. Arnold, U.
