Some of the new Rasks certainly i elate to the duties ^mentioned above. And for a lesson in vhow to do them we might examine the ^methods of Adolf Hitler. c Hitler did a thorough job of cduciit- if nazification can be dignified by name. And the task of dc-tmify- =ing German youth auer the war is go- .injr to be a long and difficult one. For •^Hitler realised the importance of edn- Itation, and expended great effort to use Tit for his ends. 4 However loathsome the result, the process might give us some ideas. If, in ^addition to concentration on the regn- Jar curriculum anil specialized training, jour educators could teach tolerance as ^zealously as Hitler taught bigotry,, and understanding as painstakingly as lie taught racial insularity, we might be taking a long step toward a better world. ••production (a Ihta ««IlBa ol •UM* Mvs{*p<ti tat h M KkBowlMlfauot «f tm th« The Case of General Stilweli President R.mscvclt nscrlbm the sudden recall of General -Joseph W, Stilweli from his multiple post as> commander of American forces in Ihe Wir Easl, chief of slaff lo Gcnenillsslmo Cliimiff K(ii-;;hck und deputy lo -Admiral Lord l-ouls, purely lo what lie terms a "clnsh of pcrtonallUeA.' 1 But Hie explanation which r/mics from Informed, although unofficial, sources Is a good deal more disturbing. • These sources, Including American nci^papcr- mcn loiin familiar at tlrsl hand will) coiuilllons in China, picture « country In the process of mllllm-y and pslilical disijitcurallon.

The foreign observers in question mnke no al- lenipt lo minimize Ihe failure of Hie United Slnlcs and Great Britain lo deliver the volume of war supplies the Chinese had expected. They do nol cloubl the patriotism of Generalissimo Chiang Knl-shck or. his determination lo con- Unue the struggle with' Jn]ian. Further, they admit that General Stilweli Is not n cllploma,t and llmt he is lempernmcnlally impatient with bureaucracy and red tape.

Those are serious allegations. They emanate from responsible quarters. The information on which they are founded may be incomplete or erroneous. But Ihey obviously rctiulre some answer from the persons In charge of our policy. For the observers declare that nl one lime Generalissimo Chiang Knl-sliek seemed willing lo accede lo American pressure and that Ibis pressure then was llfled at Ihe Instance of other administration advisers.

' * * * ; VII QINGER arrived at about C, v looking like a million and carrying a box wrapped in white paper with a silver ribbon around After one glance at the place she let out a whistle. "Gee, Leo, this is swell!" She put down the parcel and grabbed my hand. "Come on," she snid, "show me around." We went from the living room to the pantry, then to the bathroom and the bedroom, and each time she gurgled with joy. "Oh, Leo, isn't it won-dcr-ful!" Finally, nflor she'd rushed around and was all out of breath, she Hopped inlo an armchair. She jumped ii]> almost immediately. "I'm so excited," she said, "thai I'd almost forgotten." She handed me the box, "This is for you." I tore off (he paper and opened the box. II contained a Iray, a cockUiil shaker, and six silver- rimmed glasses. "Say, Ginger, that's swell!" 1 exclaimed. "Thanks a million!" I took her silver fox jacket from her and we sal clown on the davenport. She stiii-lcd to question me about my rise in the world. I didn't say much, merely lhal I was now officially Boggio's lawyer and that we'd signed a contract. Then I asked her about Boggio's trip lo Chicago. Had he decided upon it suddenly, or had it been planned a couple of days ago? She didn't know. He never talked to her about business. It was like him to do things unexpectedly, so she was never surprised by any of his moves. Hut slill I couldn'l figure it out. "Don't worry," said Ginger.

REPUBLICAN STATE CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE PoIiliCitl Atlrrrtnrmtnt "Forget It. When he needs you he'll let you know. What about pouring me a drink?" While I called the desk she walked over lo !he radio and turned it on. A few minutes later a waiter came up with Ihe liquor I'd asked for. I signed the cheek and lipped him, and then he produced an elaborate menu from under his arm. ' "Do you wish to dine,'sir?" he asked. Not havlnc figured on anything hke this, I didn't know what lo say. But Ginger look charge. 'That's a swell idea. I hadn't any plans for this evening anyhow. Here,, give that to me." Finally the waiter came across will, suggestions for which we were bolh grateful. Neither ot us was so hot on those fancy French names And then Ginger clapped her hands. "Let's have some champagne too, Leo. You don't move every day." *.;.*«* JJALP an hour 01- so after we'd placed our order, the waiter had rolled in one- ot those little carls heaped with dishes concealed under'silver covers. He'd fixed Hie table for us, carver! the Poulardc dc Bruxclles which turned out to he roast chicken, and even placed Ine napkins on oui- laps Tin's was service! Then he'd opened the champagne boltlc which went off with a len-ific bang, and filled our glasses. It was so good that wed finished the bottle between us. Now we- lolled back on the davenport, at peace with the world. Ginger had glanced nt mo several limes. And now I-realized she was look-ing at me with different eyes. I wasn't the Leo she'd seen otf and on lor three years. I was another guy, entirely. She leaned over towards me "A penny for your thoughts, Loo." I didn't respond and my silence must have bothered her for after a moment she started ngain. > "Well, Leo, what ore you think'-' Ing about?" ' ! •:•*• "•• • •.;•" "Nothing." • ' ' ' '.i' She rested her cheek on her' arm which was ciiaped over fhc back of the dnvcnport. With her other hand she started playing with my lie. "You can't think about nothing." "Why not?" I asked. "For the price you're offering me." "Silly boy," she said, giving me a pat on the cheek. Little intimacies now! I suddenly saw the danger signal. Ginger was a swell dish. But she wasn't the only girl in the world. I wasn't going to slick my neck ; t-Jt with a guy like Boggio; I think the champagne must have begun lo have its effect. She snuggled a litile closer. "What do you think about me, Leo?" I'm not made of wood.\ I got up and straightened my tie. and laughed Ihe whole thing off. "You're wonderful, you're beautiful and you're gorgeous, Ginger! And we're going to remain (he best oE friends." Maybe the implication was too obvious. Anyhow she reacted as if I'd slapped her. I'guess'the champagne evaporated right then and there. "Give me my coat," siie demanded. . "What's the rush?" I 'asked. 'Don'l be like that." "I want my coat." . I. shrugged and went lo get it. She'd already put on her hat and dove into the fur as I held it oul.: "Thank you so much for the dinner, Mister Kabalcck," she said. I laughed. "Now look here. Gin-: gei-. Don't be so childish." "So I'm being childish? Oh no. Mister Kabntcck. Only it's not safe for you lo have me around. Maybe I'd throw myself at your precious neck-. And now that you've become so important . . ." I grabbed her hand. "Look here, Ginger, I didn't mean ..." She jerked her hand away and strode to the door. Opening it, she thrust a parting shot at me. "Who'd have ever thought you were such a dope!" Then she slammed it shut. <To Be Continued) Factory Method Motor * .* Our newly installed equipment includes a CRANKSHAFT GRINDER, BORING 15ARS PISTON GRINDER, BEARING RE-SIZER, LINE BORING MACHINE, CONNECTING ROD RE-BABBITING :MACHINE, etc.' - , , .•.,.,.., Our men are factory trained and use factory approved methods. y Take your truck, car or tractor to your own dealer or garage and have them send the motor to us to be completely rebuilt!
