To begin with, it's nothing .-short ol sacrilege in these precincts to favorably compare anyont with (he Wheaton Iceman. Ever since he sce.reii hi- last touchdown for Illir.oir; in I'.ij.

Pug Lund of Minnesota and Jay Berwanger of Chicago, most notably. But every time a new .sun- hit the heights, loyal Tllini would stop, look and Its-ten and then reaffirm their belief that there was only one Red Grange, and thai \v.»: that. Now Illinois has ;-een Tom Harmon and even the most rabid fans of coach who was assistant to Amosj Alon/.o Stagg during Ihe days when; everyone, including the Maroon, which in the.se days was among the leaders. ''! saw Grange three years in n tuv.." s-ays Crisler. "Of course he \va.s a terrific runner, but Harmon l has aU the qualities of a great player detensively as well as offensively. You know. I really rank Harmon tir.st. as a blocker and secondly as ;> ilelensive player, ahead of his running and passing ability." Yust Snsy Harmon Ts as Good As Heston Fielding H. Yost adds fuel to the .Michigan flame by admitting Harmon i ; a.s good as Willie Heston. the Michi- uan immortal who .sparked The Old Man's dynamic poinl-aminute teams of the early 1900s. All of which only causes Robert C. Xuppko and other enlightened Mlini to rear up on their hind legs in rebuttal. Tho wee Dutchman wrathfully reminds- anyone interested that Grange was a great all-round*player, too. . . that ho could pass brilliantly, catch pa.-sos and back up a line with the) best of them. "We really wasted his line-backing •1 ility because of his value as a safety man," Zup points out. "Who else would ynn have returning punts other than a man who ran- like Grange? He could have punted, too, but Earl In slightly more than S9.tWO.OOtl. By 19116 the figure had climbed to S3Vl.iKI8.flOO.

Wage Scale Low in Virgin I; lands Thij- Virgin Islands illustration is a pretty good example, for Britain owns many i.slands in that group and information here i.s that their economic condition is even worse than that of the American islands. While 10 cents a day is considered a fair rate for labor in the American Virgin Islands. Negrous from the British Virgin Islands consider | themselves lucky if they can gel to i the American islands-because their own wage scales are so much worse. Should Uncle Sam suddenly multiply his Caribbean island holdiny.s by a score or more, there would almost certainly be a largu added drain on the federal treasury. There would be compensations, of course. The army, and navy consider the i Caribbean Islands of vital strategic im port.ince.

WAR STORIES IN STAMPS Hitler May Try Italian's Plan for Aerial Warfare CWIFT, terrifying air raids, ^ striking deep in allied countries, may follow Germany's unrestricted submarine warfare, as Hitler attempts a "lightning war" thrust at the Western Front. Military authorities concede that such raids, if effective, would materially help the Nazi offensive. But German airmen, attempting to disrupt communications, destroy supplies and factories and demoralize civilian populations will not find their attack as,simple" as that of a submarine. The idea .follows a plan outlined 10 years ago by an Italian, Gen. Giulio Douhet. Douhet's campaign called for wave after wave of massed bombers dropping tons of explosives on industrial and population centers "until our adversary's will and power to make war is destroyed." The Douhet plan, however, requires absolute control of the air, which will be difficult for the Nazis to obtain against the combined air strength of Britain and France. It also fails to consider. to any great extent, the air raid precautions which have become routine in every European capital. During the first weeks of war, false air raid warnings left London and Paris jittery. Under expert supervision of Air Raid Precautions workers, civilians were herded into shelters, and everything was made ready to fight fires and gas. The tension has ca.sed, as war progresses, but there has been no relaxation of vigilance. Berlin, too, may expect attack. The German capital has been training for air raids for two years and boasts an efficient and well- ico-ordinated Air Protection League, which is honored by the WHY THE BIG SMILE?
