In act, some Alaskans refer to the Arc- ic ocean as the "Mediterranean of the uture." 50-Cent Payoff Clears This Conscience KENOSHA, Wis. -(/P)— Somrwhere in Kenosiia, n youthful conscience is at ease. Scribbled in childish handwriting and containing 50 one cent slumps, this letter was received at u locul market. "During the year 1 have pilfered some tilings from your counters and 1 think the enclosed will pay for it. I'm sorry I done it." it will be impossible to gel their names until they are raised. Rear Admiral Irvine Glennie, directing the operations of the destroyers attached to the Mediterranean fleet, described the "Tobruk ferry" as "just another navy job, but it was difficult because of the air attacks and shellings they faced; the destroyers had to work in pitch darkness." Admiral Glennie disclosed that from April 12 until December 10 destroyers landed 29,000 troops, evvacuated 33,000 from Tobruk and discharged 34,000 tons of stores. The destroyers frequently changed their courses, zig-zagging to and from Tobruk lo avoid submarine air attacks and "fox" enemy reconnaissance aircraft. Australian, South African and Greek units during the last several months greatly aided the work of keeping the Tobruk garrison supplied. Without the navy keeping open the route to Tobruk, however, there is no doubt the garrison soon would havev found itself in serious difficulties since with the axis forces blocjting all land routes there was no possibility of getting sup- lilies via the 4esert. rxrntssiNG OUR APPRECIATION Or tOUR MANY COURTESIES OF THC PAST AND EXTENDING THE COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON.
