The confidence of the French people in their leaders, in theii army, in Iheir British allies, was sys- lemalically shaken by a barrage of rumors planted among them by Quislings and Hillcr agcnls. This is a definitely demonstrated fact. Why should we expect to be immune form this tactic? Resist the lempetation lo seem a 'wise guy," with "inside dope." When i particularly juicy rumor is dangled jefore you, question it at once, search for ils source, and lei it die there without giving yourself the warming satisfaction of pasing it on. All the news that is definitely authenticated will be in the newspapers. Take everything that is nol officially au- theneicatcd with at least one grain of salt, or better yet, pickle it in brine and forget it.

It j» young, thank God, in its spirit and in its buoyant faith in the future. It is not so young in years as some people think. This year will mark the 450th anniversary of the discovery of America by Columbus. That is not old as historical time is measured but it is older again than some of the European institutions which preen themselves on age alone. New York City, for instance, is nearly a hundred Revolution Rumored SOMEWHERE ON THE GERMAN FRONTIER -(/P)_ Advices reaching this border point states thai pcrsis- tanl reports of revolution in Germany, following increasing reverses on the eastern front, have impelled the Nazi foreign office to make a middle of the night denial. Foreign correspondents one night this week were called from bed to be told individually by telephone of the reports and to hear the official denial Some correspondents'- expressed surprise that the stories created so much concern in Wilhclmstrasse that an immediate denial was considered necessary. Increasing information from reliable sources indicated thai the German army's troubles began when Adolf Hitler overruled Field Marshall Wlather von Brauchitsch's plan—which reputidly was to fall back lo the Berezina river before winter set in. The Berezina is in White Russia, almost 400 miles from Boscow. It was said that Hitler hoped to press on, whereupon the field marshall resigned. Hitler reportedly look over personal command when other high of- c icers declined to take the responsibility. By that time it was to late lo turn jack. on tossian Jap Empire Highly Vulnerah^Mass'Destructlon , re years older than Leningrad, and ou our own government is more than 150 years old to set against the eight years of the German "Third Reich" and the 20 years of the Italian Fascist state to say nothing of the six years of the "Italian Empire," which has alroadj crumbled.

A steel authority, giving each country involved credit for the best year it ever had, scored the contending sides this way: Germany, Italy, Japan, and all conquered Europe-60.000,000 tons a year iJ^ nS " British Empire and Russia- 130,000,000 tons. Should Germany manage to capture and be able to use fully all Russian facilities located west 'of the Urals, the score would read: Russia pays a reguar allowance to nearly all its university students.
