The robot bomb has been made possible by the cleverness of German physicists. The jet-propulsion method appears to be somewhat more advanced in Germany than in United Nations laboratories. And it has been applied to fighter planes as well as robot bombs. As a report to his newspaper has indicated, the jet-propelled planes might prove formidable if Germany could manufacture them in sufficient quantities, and had pilots enough to man great fleets of them. United Nations airmen who have encountered them say they are amazingly fast on the climb; apparently their possibilities, at least, are respected by fliers. If Germany could transform its air power fast enough, it is conceivable that some of the strain it feels because of dwindling oil supplies might be relieved by jet vator at Columbia, She finally 1 night!

For, by train, by bus, by ship and by plane, they are arriving on short leaves which will be spent with families they have not seen for months or perhaps years.
