However, the Allied air forces are beginning to bite off '-treat, 'chunks of this war, with speed and small cost in lives and nrmteriel. We need the land forces, but we can save hundreds of thousands of lives, weary month of battle and billons in cash by intensive development of the Allied air- arm. Now when you hit the Renault works, • you hit something. This plant, which manufactures transport vehicles, tanks and aero engines for Hitler is perhaps the biggest of 'its kind in Europe. It got a orry shellacking from the Royal Air Force just a year ago when it was employing 30,000 men and running twenty-four hours a day.

It was a terrific loss to the Nazis, and crippled the works for a long time. Now the Yanks have tossed a load of monkey wrenches into the macin- ery again. This was only one of many raids carried out over Western Europe in the past three 'days, including the heavy R.A.F. assault on the much manhandled armaments works at Essen. Nino hundred ton of bombs were dumped in among the price less Krupps faetoi'ies which are the right arm of Hitler's Frankenstein. Naturally Krupps isn't wiped out or anything like it, for the work cover some 800 acres. The point is that while many buildings were undamaged. a great deal of the manufacturing is interlocking so that the destruction of one main building might put a large number of others out of business. The thoery about such devastating bombings is that if you crack up enough of prime targes, plus transport, system which are esen- tial to move upplies, the enemy will reach a point of near impotence. No one yet has found a .flaw in this argument and, in fact, it seems obvious that it must be true. However, we must remember that'the effect of such bombing on the German fighting machine isn't immediate, because the Nazis have supplies for a considerable time ahead. It might be several months before the losses registered on the [battle front. But the destruction of ;hese targets in cumulative. GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago.

It was late afternoon of the following day before they ran out of the storm, and the wallowing of the small boat settled to a rhythmic roll. For the first time all five passengers appeared in the small dining room for dinner. Barry Fielding came first. He was a born sailor, and rough weather only sharpened his sea appetite. The captain introduced the three men coming in next. Two were joint owners of a rubber plantation in Brazil. The third an elderly lighthouse keeper. Barry told them he was a mining engineer. "I'm afraid Miss Topping won't make it," the captain said as he led the way to the table. "She's been having a bad time." Barry smiled. "Fine," he said. "She'll get off at Santiago then nnd go back—which is exactly what she should do." "You think so, Mr. Fielding?" The five men turned sharply toward the door, at the sound of the feminine voice. Allison Topping was posed dramatically in the doorway, her celebrated figure in sequin evening gown silhouetted against the &th Army Said (Continued From Page One) near frapani in Sicily, and Porlo Empcdocle on the south coast of Sicily also were raided and badly damaged.

She had piled her honey colored hair in careless curls atop her small head. There were dark circles under her violet eyes and tiny veins showed at her temples under the chalky pallor of her skin. The four passengers and the captain leaped as a man to pull a chair for her. Barry said severely, "You shouldn't have come down tonight." "I was afraid," she said faintly, "that—heartless people would try to influence the captain to put me off at Santiago." The laughter rose fast and gallant, directed against Barry. He shrugged with a grin. "The ship is yours," he said. "Stay on it till doomsday if you like.

"I feel fine now," she boasted. "In the privacy of my cabin for the last 48 hours I've been singing the blues—I mean about the war—my losing every centavo but a chicle plantation—and now the storm! It's all off my mind for good." The rubber men and the lighthouse keeper were enchanted and a little afraid of her. To Barry's surprise she refused their homage. . "Just call the books. Somewhere within their pages was the key to the success or failure of his mission to Guatemala. They were histories of the Quiche Indian tribe. He could scarcely pull himself out of his absorption during meals. But he noted with vague imusement the constantly soaring stock of Allison's popularity with the other passengers. By the third day she was the darling of passengers and crew alike, which fact he included in his letter to Lila, though he added an honest and comforting account of his own cloistered days. He did not mention, of course, the rising pique he could feel in Allison over his invulnerability to her charms. At lunch the talk was all of Santiago. Allison hud been there often.

Barry glanced around at the sudden roar of laughter from the three other men. He realized suddenly he had been duped into conning. Allison's laughter rose. "Serves you right, you recluse!

And there was an old Indian in a basket shop in the market place who told the most wonderful stories. He belonged to some strange tribe, and when he was 12 he took some kind of a blood oath. Barry was instantly all attention. He tried to sound casual. "Was he a Quiche Indian?" Allison's large eyes fixed on him with thoughtful innocence. "I me Al," she said, j believe that wtis the tribe," she ''The deb is dead. I'm not even j said r-lov/ly. Queen of Chewing Gum Jungle— just a chicle luborer."
