And n short time after the President finished I was kissing Ellen good-bye. The squadron reached Pcndle- ton that night and went to work immediately. We went out on sub patrol.

MacLean Is described by his [friends as a man of dual character outwardly languid and casual, [affecting the bored drooping man- fenerism of a Mayfair dilettante, but hnwardly burning with a ?.cst for |danger and adventure. A bachelor, he is the only son yt Major Charles MacLean, DSO, und a descendant of the fighling IMacLeans of Ardgour. He was cdu- jcalecl al Eton and Cambridge and ^wllh that traditional background for a diplomatic career he became mtlached to the British embassy in T'aris. Subsequently he served the embassy in Moscow and the foreign Office In London until 1941 when he Joined the Cameron Highlanders. That same year he won a set in 'arliamcnt, bul he preferred Norlh kfrica to Commons as a battleground and in a few months be- fcame the first parachutist member p'f Commons. He led a secret col- limn which struck 500 miles behind Marshal Rommel's lines in |he North African desert to raid a "iizi airbase at Bengasi in October 1942.

Dec. ' 15 —(IP) — High a : ~ Nazi leaders were understood to-j sian mascss.

Rommel recently has been reported touring Northwest Europe as a kind of anti-invasion chief and here are indications Field Marshal Karl Von Rtindstedt may soon be removed from command of western defenses, n post he has held nearly two years. Strictly a Nazi general, who has risen from the ranks under Hitler's aegis, Rommel has the confidence not only of the Fuehrer but of his party chieftains. Von Rundstedt, a leader among the military aristocracy, repeatedly has been reported waiting for the opportune moment to attempt an anti-Nazi coup and extend a I ; Bojilov, was "establishing contact with leading politicians lo elucidate (he situation." (A Cairo dispatch to the Nevt> York Times said Bulgaria lias repeatedly communicated peace feelers to the Allies, which were rejected.) Reports of tension came from Hungary, too. Dispatches lo Ihc Swedish press said opposition leaders in the upper house of the parliament at Budapest had demanded withdrawal of three 'Hungarian divisions from the Eastern front, where the Germans arc using them as occupation troops. ince France fell, more than 1,convoys have been escorted by peace bid to the Allies in the hope of winning terms which would permit salvaging of enough of Germany's war machine to set in motion another try at world domination in the future. There have been recurrent reports in London that the Junker clique already has unsuccessfully approached the Allies with just such terms, which fell far short of i the unconditional surrender formu- jla. j Refugees from Germany, who rc- ' ported on their arrival here the Nazis were thinking of elevating Rommel to supreme command, said also their information indicated the Germans Ccel certain the Allies will launch a major invasion of Denmark and Norway almost any day. That is one reason why Rommel was sent to inspect defenses in the two countries, they said. The Germans in Denmark have been plagued by continued unrest and sabotage, despite the strict dictatorship they established over the country Aug. 29 after a Danish miliUyy and naval revolt. More than 30 persons have been arrested by the Germans since that time. While the Nazis were reported to far an Allied Baltic thrust, speculation a blow might also come in the Balkans was enlivened by the appearance in Cairo of Lt. Gen. George S.

Atherton, national commander of the American Legion, in a nationwide radio address (CBS). "All America was shocked when Ihe American Legion reported Dec. 1 that a survey of 1,535" battle casualty cases in 34 slates disclosed that many of them had been forced lo subsist on charity or their own resources for four to seven months after they were released from hospitals," Atherton asserted. "Death and disability are the harvest of war. As night follows day, so the long lines of laden stretchers follow every engagement; hospitals, vocational training and aid and assistance lo Ihe wounded are as much, a parl of war as the guns and the ammunition. "Though many thousands of men who have returned from battle fields with medals on their chests have been forced lo wail monlhs for their compensation, until now they have not failed of a hospital bed and the finest of medical at- lenlion. "We are lavishly expending billions to win this war. Let us be as generous in expending a small parl of Ihose huge sums in bringing solace and happiness arid -success lo those who sacrifices can only bo partially compensated for by the gratitude of a grateful people.".
