The disappointed Frenchmen stood in the store doorway and chattered about their predicament —in French. WAAC Auxiliary Sim- onc Campanardi, of North Adams, Mass., listened in on the conversation. A few minutes later the French gobs credited the American army with one assist in the purchase of a watch. Auxiliary Campanardi was born in France and speaks French fluently.

The German News Agency DNB •cported from Brussels that mill- ary authorilics had sentenced eight Belgians to death for collecting weapons and equipment for sabo- age. Long prison terms were im- loscd on several olhcrs . From Bern It was reported 150 frenchmen had been arrested in Vichy on 8 charges of plotting igainst Pierre Laval. Laval, the Vichy radio said, has been summoned lo a conference in Paris with representatives of German ahd Italian military commanders n France. The Algiers radio, meanwhile, Addressed a broadcast to the French people telling them that as a result of the Allied victory in Tu- lisia "Ihc battle for liberation will ioon start — get ready for it." "The United Slates of America will help every Frenchman worthy of his name to liberate his coun- .ry from the enemy," the broadcast said. "The same weapons which crushed the Axis in Africa will slarl soon again Ihc work which will libcralc your soil from Hie invader. "Frenchmen, we are living triumphant days — the days of ro- vcngc we have been wailing for. You shall be libcralcd very soon indeed."

The Japanese have a lolal -force slimated by some authories at ibout 3,000,000 men, including hose formed into about 85 corn- divisions. Approximately one- bird of this force is lied up in Mnnchurin, Korea nnd Japan it elf; another Ihird is in China and he rest in Burma, Thailand and he south and southwest Pacific. Probably the Pacific enemy's wcakesl poinl is in Ihc machines of war — ships and planes. American submarines have done much lo cul down her shipping onnage, even as American war>hips and planes have battered her >Javy every time it has dared bal- lc. The process of atlrilion would 30 greatly speeded up if heavy air itriking power from bases in China :ould be brought to bear directly on the Japanese homeland. India Looms (Continued From Page One) drawn lighter and vital resources and bass must be cut off from her before the encirclement begin; to squeeze. The only active threat ol the vital interests of the island empire at present is posed by American naval and air forces in the Pacific. From Kiska Island, in the Alcu tians, down to Guadalcanal in the Solomons and Port Moresby in New Guinea, the Japanese must be constantly on the move, using up ships, planes, men and oil, even to maintain their present defensive position. They have no way o knowing where promised blows wil fall from the east this spring anc summer. West and north of Australia however, the situation is different The Japanese so far have no been threatened in their main and immensely rich positions in the Dutch Indies and Malaya. Ligh raids on five Japanese bases ii New Guinea and New Britain anc the Tanimbar Islands were report cd in today's communique frorr General MacArlhur's headquarter: in Australia, as well as mino; clashes between Allied and Japa ncse patrols in the New Guinc; jungles.

In Burma, Wavcll's British force: undertook a limited drive aimed a Akyab but failed of their objcctivi and now apparently aVc in dangei of being forced by enemy flank at tacks to give up all the lerritorj won. With the Monsoon season set ting in, there is virtually no pos sibility of a recovery before ncx October.

He was coming in from above again, but not out of her range. She heard someone shout behind her, "What are you doing?" She did not answer. Her brain was focused on the Jap plane. The voice came into her consciousness again. "Let me have that gun." It was too late. Beth had the Jap where she wanted him. She let him have everything the gun could give—a long, blasting burst that was capable of ripping apart any fighter plane it hit. Both was vaguely cognizant that something—it was a burst from the Jap's guns—spattered the Fortress somewhere close to her. If she ever in her life had an inclination to feel fear, now was the time. Suddenly she was in the clutch of a deadly fascination at the scene before her eyes. The Jap sped toward her, but now his guns were not spitting. Was he going to crash the Fortress? Beth watched him for the long, long split seconds it took for the Zero to sweep in closer, closer, closer. .. , Then, just as he seemed about to smash into the big American plane, he disappeared,. HE Fortress's other gunner pushed Both usido, not rudely, but roughly and hastily. He grabbed tho machine gun. Then lie watched, too, for there was nothing else to do. The Jap was going down, following his mate to the bottom of the sea. "You plucky devil," the gunner said. "You did it. You shot down a Jap Zero fighter!" Beth turned toward the man on the floor. "We've got to do something for him," she said. Major Jackson reappeared. He worked with Beth on the injured man. The copilot was with them now, and he assumed charge. Beth was slightly dazed, now that the fight was over. "Lieutenant Carter, if you'll help us . . ." the copilot beckoned. "Yes, sir," Beth replied. She had paused a moment in her task of assisting and had looked blankly at the man's expressionless face. Helping was a matter of a quarter of an hour's work, the reward of which was the grin of a revived gunner. "We got through all right?" he asked. "Got 'em both," the other gunner said. "Good boy. Goad boy. Swell!" "Sorry, Buddy, I cun't take all the credit. Miss . . . Lieutenant Carter here got the second one." "Nothing like having a useless woman on board, is there?" the copilot said. * * * GRADUALLY, the crew of the ^ Flying Fortress relaxed, tension easing as the men swapped jokes while they checked the damage to the big ship. Beth bad grown to new stature in their eyes. From now on, she was one of them. The plane hummed steadily on, searching from its height of 20,000 feet until it found a tiny spot of island that almost matched the ocean's color. From the air, this bit of land showed no sign of habitation. Skillfully, the pilot located a landing field where Beth was certain, just a moment before, that nothing existed except verdant growth, "Camouflage," Major Jackson grinned. His glance had caught the surprise in Beth's wide-open eyes. "It's —it's wonderful," Beth gasped, looking around now at the signs of life and activity where only jungle had appeared as she looked down from the sky, "This," Major Jackson said, "is your new home," As she stepped from the plane, Beth blinked the brilliant sunlight out of her eyes. So this was it. Here she would live. She had left the city just a few hours before, but already it seemed a million miles away, Beth was taken to her quarters. Her room, with the luxury of an adjoining bath, was in the main headquarters building and only a few doors from Major Jackson's office. The office adjoining his was given to her for her work. Headquarters, a subterranean concrete structure, was approached through a bower of tropical greenery which completely hid man's path. "Sorry to have to put you right on the doorstep of your job," Major Jackson had said as they walked over, "but it can't be helped. I can't put you in officers' quarters—you might not feel self- conscious, but the poor men would. Your living quarters were designed as a lounge for officers on 24-hour duty. They'll have to find some other place for the duration." "Of the war?" "No. Of your stay." •»*- <T«» For Rent FURNISHED APARTMENT downstairs. Bills paid. Miss Mary Middlebrooks.
