RICHARD MASSOCK AP Feature Service NEW YORK—I suppose I have gotten out of Europe about the right time, as running a home is becoming quite difficult. In fact, so is life in general. There was a fever of buying going on in Italy just before I left and the new rationing cards came in. These new cards cover clothing and all household goods. Everyone had the idea ho must buy, buy, buy and buy; hoso, gloves, shoes, suits, silks, coats, It was in the air, and everyone was struck by it, even we Americans. Now I come home and hear everyone excited and anxious to buy a plot of land, or spending like mad in the night spots; buying jewelry, buying furs. The spending fever seems even worse than it was in 1028. It's startling to see the elegance of the women in New . York. One has only to walk down Fifth or Park avenue to realize how untouched we seem to be by this war, and how far away it all must seem to most people.

JACK OAKIE GEORGE MURPHY ALTER BRENNAN LINDA DARNELL MILTQN^ERLE BELLINGER'S Outcome of Libyan War Fate of Churchill Seen Hinging on British Offensive By THOMAS M. JOHNSON NBA Service Military Writer WASHINGTON-Upon the outcome of the British offensive in North Africa depend evenls that are momentous in ways clear only lo a relative few in Washington. Behind Ihe obvious military objectives of the British Libya move, some well-informed observers here see a political objective: 'The Churchill) government hopes to draw German troops lo Africa from Russia not only to save Russia bul, by saving Russia, to save the Churchill government. The Churchill regime has been under a hot fire which will become a veritable barrage if Russia falls. In that event the Government would be blamed for not having "opened a western front," notwithstanding information here .lhat Brilish military strength is not yet sufficient to al- lempl a continental invasion. Another attack on Churchill's position might be a charge that, to silence clamor, British and American spokesmen had col- luslvely given out over-optimistic reports of Russia's chances, English Left Wing Becomes Bolder The final explosion might come from English left-wingers. They have been so slrenglhened and emboldened by Ihe Russian. alliance that some Conservatives have revived fears of some sort of revolulion. This would be more lhan the usual Parliamentary change in government. It might aim toward making permanent Brilain's about half ready to dispute any effort he might make to extend it, especially PUEBLO, Cofo.-(VP)-".rusl erase my marriage off your records; 1 understand it was Illegal." said a letter County Clerk A.

"So since we have been separated for the past seven months please just strike Hie marriage from the records so it will be annulled," she wrote.

These things are being pointed out to our government by the British—in the hope, some way, of further bolstering Churchill's, prestige by an immediate American declaration of war.

If the British succeed there, Churchill slays. They may succeed loo—thanks in unsuspected degree to India and'South Africa. Both are playing a bigger part than was expected.

Taxicabs run only until 8:30 in the evening, and even then one must be going in the direction of the taxi to get a ride, as each vehicle has a zone and cannot go out of it. Before the war Ihere were as many automobiles in Home in proportion lo Lho population as there are in New York. With cars laid up, Romans now are obliged to take buses or trams. And there are no more of these public conveyances than there were before the war. So people are packed like sardines in a box. It's really dangerous to wear a good fur coat or other garment, since one is pushed and shoved about mercilessly getting in and out of the crowds, Movies, restaurants, bars—in fact, all public places—must be closed by II at night. The food problem is difficult. Rationing is so restricted that entertaining at home is almost impossible. One is allowed 100 grams of butter a month per person (Ihere are 28 grams to the ounce), 300 grams of oil, 100 grams of rice, one and a half kilograms of spaghetti, which is quite gray; 100 grams of meat per person a week, which isn't even the size of a lamb chop, and you can have your choice of veal; 100 grams of bread « day, dark and tastes gritty. The Black Market for food has completely disappeared, so one gets along on his rations. To shop for the day, one must allow two or three hours for rounding up the food, as separate lines are formed for milk, meat, bread, potatoes, fruits, etc. Waiting wound in line long hours puts everybody in a bad humor, the shopkeeper as well as the shoppers. Foreigners are not permitted to go outside Rome or certain specified nearby towns, but until now we have had no unhappy experiences, and Americans are treated the same as before the war.
