Thq,way the Marines tell it, the Commandos are simply sea-soldiers trained in all the tricks of the British Royal Marines, the only difference being that these new sea- soldiers are cashing in on the tricky publicity of a new romantic name that has caught the public fancy. Furthermore, the Marines want the cockeyed world to appreciate that said Marines know all there is to know about this amphibious warfare, anyway. What it amounts to is the landing of expeditionary forces and the development and holding of beachheads to prepare the way for regular soldiers. Since cur Marine Corps was established' in 1798, it has been called on to make an average of more than two such landings every year. The basic principles of this type of amphibious warfare remain the same, say the Marines, only in this war there are new weapons, better planes, better tanks, parachute troops. What it amounts to is that amphibious warfare has become mechanized. Th? Japs have .shown they have mastered this art of amphibious warfare in their numerous landing operations on Pacific islands, but the Marines say the Japs have no really new tricks. Some information on the training of the Marines for the new amphibious warfare has been given, but most of the detail is still secret.

The Archduke Otto of Hapsburg, one of the parasites who hangs around Washington a good bit these days, was recently invited to a luncheon. Being the highest ranking guest, no one was supposed to leave before he did. But Otto had such a good time he stayed till 4:15, thereby keeping away from their jobs a lot of people. Whereupon one of Washington'.s social arbiters opined there ought to be a law that after 3:30 p.m.. anybody can j leave any luncheon without apol- I ogy and no matter how long the guest of honor stuck around. * * » Washington Badinage: Senator Tom Connally of Marlin, Tex.—I resent these dollar-a-year men being overpaid. Senator Harry S. Truman of Independence. Mo.—They're not being overpaid by their companies, but they are overpaid by the government. * * * First it was called the Ait Corps Ferrying Command. Then it was called the Air Corps Ferry Command. Now it is called the Air Corps Ferrying Command again. All of which may confuse' the axis, but no more than it docs Washington. BOND BARRIER Sales promotion managers for the War Savings Stamps and Wai- Bonds campaigns have run onto a peculiar problem in dealing with ,he foreign language press in Amerca. It seems that the Minute Man, he emblem of which is printed on the stamps and bonds and all of the posters and advertising matter doesn't register very well with the foreign born. Only symbol thc-y recognize is the Statue of Liberty. * » W Niftiest suggestion to save tires which the National Inventors' Council has received thus far comes from a genius who proposes that four helium balloons be attached to the four corners of the car to lighten its weight and thus save wear of the casings on the pavement.
