Ward & Son Druggist her vocol chords cut . . . her military nervous system mostly, pnralyzed. For Poland had depended too much upon a nervous system of wires. Not enough had she learned to piece it out with the sign language — radio, radiotelephone and other means. Now, to do that Ls not easy. Communication through the air is today a pressing military problem. And in the light of the Lightning War. our own U. S. Army is studying it carefully. Lately real progress has been made. "Widkie-Tiilkie" Holds the Stage . Beside an A/dirondack mountain road lounged a dusty column of in- lantry, hats tipped back over faces streaming under the sun. It was near the end of the Pittsburgh maneuvers. "Where'n hell do we go from here?" arose the age-old soldier's question. Then all eyes turned to two figures striding down the road— an officer and behind him a soldier. To the soldier's back was strapped aji odd-looking pack from which protruded something that looked like a thin-ly-rolled umbrella. 'Chamberlain's goin' to war." a dough boy chuckled. Head down, the officer was mumbling: 'Bonehcad One speaking. This .ijijg Bull?. Point 270? Yes, sir, immediately." His head snapped up. From his ear he took a black telephone apparatus. He barked order— and the dough-boys knew where they went from there. But, no thanks to wires. That was christened the 'Walkei-talkie." It is hoped it will help solve Lightning War problems (although doughboy talk says that in a thunderstorm that lightning-rod is a problem, too.) It is the antenna of a shortwave, high frequency set weighing 2G pounds its mouthpiece an adaptation of the radio announceer's "mike". H can ctirry the voice five miles in battle conditions, but has carried 100 miles at night on flat land. It can't drive a human voice through hills. The Army wants but cannot afford one for every higher headquarters; also for every regiment, every station. And, since the Lightning War flashed. it has intensified study of radiotelephone talks study between that war's two leading agents— airplanes and fast tanks. No radiotelephone is perfect, if only because the enemy can listen in— hence the cryptic codes that nickname officers Bonehead or Sitting Bull. But. these are simpler than radio telegraphic codes. Radiotelegrams need no wires, but must be written in code before they are sent, and be translated after they are received. In war, time is infinitely precious, so wires arc- apt to be used first. Also, the frequency channels in the air are getting crowded. But efforts to per- leut the radiotelephone for war use continue. lnfra-Rt(l Beams Can Foil Enemy Hut there is still another important means of combatting the stunning effects of the Lightning War. Some day you may run across a soldier crouched on the ground, talking to himself. 'Da-da-dee-da," he says. Silence. Then a shrill whistle, shorts and longs. If you can get a good look, you will see that he is talking the dots and dashes of radio code into the microphone of a neat, ten-pound portable transmitter. It transforms the sound into invisible infra-red light, and directs it to a receiver from which il issues in long and short whistles. Infra-red beams cannot be intercepted by an enemy radio. And long or short flashes from an infra-red lamp may be caught upon a film. The Army is busy experimenting — but it tells no more than it has to about this vital business of short- circuiting the Lightining War.

Gregore Gafencu, to Moscow to see what Stalin wants with him, NOT to Berlin to see what Hitler wants. A Split Rumania? If the diplomatic grapevine is as near right as it usually is, Gafencu may hear that Stalin wants Bessarabia back. He might even learn that Germany and Russia are establishing zones of influence that split Rumania in two, and give King Carol about as much freedm of action as a man in a ilrait-jacket. If this should occur, the province of Translyvania would fall within the German orbit, and Moldavia, Wallachia and possibly Dobrudja within the Russian.
