It follows that the Commando must be a jack of all war trades. He must be not only a soldier but a bit of a sailor and must know enough about, aerial affairs so he can cooperate with understanding. Most of all he must have guts and stamina. We don't need to go into that here, for you all have read of the really fierce preparation these men endure. The Commandos have been training for a long time, and have quietly been raiding the continental coast from Norway to Spain. These raids have been partly .to gain information and wage a way *« w.,cu.

Well, that's a secret. Vpart from Britain, of course, America also is producing Com- "ndos, and other Allied troops passing through the combined Moderations command. So far as o'ncerns the British force it's per- ijssible to answer in some such general terms as I heard yester- ,while chatting with Hilary St. pi-ge Sanunders, the distin- sheil Briton who probably more about them than any er man. aunders — A jovial and very B T individual — is their official rian and has just published £story of the commandos under of "combined operations" there are "many thousand since he is exceedingly in his language we know he is talking about a lot of main business of combined partly to find out by trial and error how to make these attacks. Biggest of all the raids was the Dieppe affair which turned out to be so costly in lives. However, combined operations in this harsh adventure learned invaluable lessons which will stand them in good stead in the hard days to come. When it comes to real invasion the first objective must be a port for the use of the following transport. You don't have to worry about that on a raid, for you expect to go back home. But with all - out invasion you're going to stay ashore — you hope — and there must be a place for the troops and supplies to be put ashore. Unity is the by - word of combined operations. All branches plan together for any expedition and carry outTheir task in closest cooperation. That word "unity," by the way v is pretty nearly synonymous with victory. It's what won Tunisia, and it's what will win the war. Fights Last Night By The Associated Press Buffalo, N.

Dodgers Cling to Lead in National Baseball League iif By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Pr^ss Sports Writer A thumbnail description of the ationnl League goings-on can bo iven in one paragraph — the eaders are the Brooklyn Dodgers, best team probably is the St. .ouis Cardinals, the most sur- rising is the Boston Braves and le most publicized the Phikulel- hia Phillies. If anybody wants to extend this urvey to a callover of the entire ield, we might add that the. Cin- innati Reds are a first division earn still having growing pains, itlsburgh is running true to form, he New York Giants are groggy nd the Chicago Cubs are the big- est disappointment. The Cardinals came surging iack at Brooklyn yesterday to re- ilate for the 10 loss of their eries opener by overpowering the Dodgers 7-1. Unlike the day bfore when the margin of victory was a jit of gridiron tactics on the base- paths, yesterday's tussle between he two rivals for the National ..eague pennant was entirely one- sided. The Redbircls raided three Brooklyn pitchers for 11 hits, hal dozen being divided equally bc- .ween Walker Cooper and Stai Wusial, while two southpaws, ICrnie White and Harry Brechoen smothered the Dodgers on three shits. The game was in the fifth nning before the Dodgers ever go man to first base. White eventually was removed because of n sore shoulder after the first two men had hit safely in the seventh 'or Brooklyn's only run, bu 3recheen finished with a hitlcss re lief job. It was entirely a top-flight basc- aall display of the Cardinals, who lave two more games to go in :heir present series wtih the Dodg- 3. Manager Bill Southworth chose another lefthander, Max Lanier, to face the Dodgers today with Max Macon taking the mound for Brooklyn. Although the Cardinals won impressively at Brooklyn, they were unable to regain second place in the standings because tlie bumptious Braves battered the Pills- burgh Pirates 4-0. The tide of victory was a pair of home runs by Rookie Charley Workman and Johnny McCarthy, each wilh a man on base, for all of Boston's runs. The Phillies pounced on the Chicago Cubs 5-4 in a night game viewed by 20,280 fans (biggest nocturnal turnout of the season) for their third, straight success and eighth in 12 games. The victory raised the Phillies into a tie with Cincinnati for fourth place and also sent, the cubs staggering to their seventh straight loss. Masked Marvel of«*Track PFC. Willm-cl W.

Fullerton, Jr.- Associated Press Sports Columnist New York, May 19 —(&>)— Last year a number of people (including this columnist) came up with the suggestion th'at major league basebalf clubs should confine their activities to week-ends during 1943 and give their athletes a chance to work at something mo>.v useful from Monday to Friday , . . Naturally, that implied scrapp ; ng the wo bg leagues in favor of group- mis that would eliminate East- West travel, and baseball men reused even to think of it ... Such i move, they claimed, would be a ate worst than death . . . Just for curiosity, we've .been chofrving up on attendacne figures to see if t has been worth while to tinue on the old plan.

The American League had two Eastern and two Western clubs in the first division and the National was the same except for lies, so their strength appears about evenly divided. Fanciful Figures As nearly as we can figure it out, it takes about three and a half week-day crowds to make one Sunday turnout this season . . The American League played 53 week-day bills up through Monday before 241,378 customers for an average ot 4,554 and 1C Sund'iy affairs (mostly doubleheaders) drew 241,610 for an vaerago ol 15,101 . . . The National League's 50 week-day shows drew 284,390 averaging 5,078 and 16 Sundays drew 299,640, averaging 18,28 . Dipping a little deeper into the figures, we find individual crowds ranging from 350 for a Saturday game between the Indians anc ihead of mid-week afternooi james in attendance and Saturday :rowds, generally speaking, aren't much bigger than other week days.

Referring to the loss of the Philippines, of the Dutch Indies and of Malaya, he said: "All of this has to be retrieved." Churchill said he wanted to "re- judinte any suspicion" that Brit- in is holding anything back from prosecution of the war in the east. He reported that in his 1942 conferences wilh President Roosevelt the task of fighting the Axis uid been divided at sea, with this lation taking over the "main responsibility" for prosecuting the war against Jupan. This included, he said* the task of defending Australia from invasion which he called more threatening in 1942 than now. Churchill, speaking from notes, told his listeners that anti - submarine measures had yielded record results recently, particularly in the last three weeks. "While I regard the U-boat danger as still the greatest we face, I have confidence it will be met. contained and overcome," lie snid. Alluding to the aerial offensive being curried out against Germany, Churchill said the British have been "vastly aided" by American dny bombings. The increasing numbers of American mid British planes are being foil, he snid, adding: "There is no doubt the Allies vastly out - number the nir forces of the hostile forces of Germany, llaly and Japan."

Enemy raiders struck at London last night for (he third successive night, giving the capital two separate nlerls. The raiders were met by heavy anti-aircraft fire at the city's approaches, but .dropped bombs at several points which an aulhorilalivc announcement said caused a .small number of casualties and a little damage. One enemy plane was destroyed. The Eighth U. S.

Reconnaissance p h o t o g r n phs ycsterdny revealed particularly heavy damage at Froendenberg, first important, industrial Ruhr city below the breached reservoir. Canal embankments there were Wiped away, n power station isolated, railway and road bridges swept away, and parts of thorn were seen downstream. Railway coaches wore topped off a track. Industrial Dortmund also was hard hit. A broadcast by the Morocco rutlio, not, confirmed elsewhere, said that city was threatened with complete inundation and that the dead and homeless were growing by the hour. The same broadcast said Duisburg air raid shelters were floondcd. The Wester valley to the east likewise presented one vast scene of devastation caused by spreading waters from gaping holes in the Kder dam. Important parts of Kassel, which is 3fi miles down the valley from the rapidly - emptying reservoir and is so vital to the German war setup that the RAF has bombed it at least 10 limes, wore covered by deopending water, including key rail routes and power stations. In the upper reaches of the valley immediately below the dam only the tops of buildings protruded from the swirling waters. Could Victoria Reign 63 Years with Stomach Ulcer Pains?
