At the beginning of the sensational drive of the American Third Army to close the escape gap of the German Seventh Army, the American people were told, in the press and over the air, that 200,000 Nazis had been bagged in the Orne pocket. Naturally, they find it somewhat difficult to understand the escape of most of these soldiers, together with the armor of General Von Kluge. They are puzzled by the successive reductions in the estimates of Germans to be captured from 200,000 to 100,000 to 50,000 and then to an indefinite total. stanain on "iMoooay Lrfves orever, ' set a trap for the imposter in front of a Hollywood theater but the man spotted them and fled.

She found Eva thin and pale but, according: to the doctor whom she secretly interviewed, organically sound. He said gravely, "I think it has been hard lor her to adjust herself. And she misses you very much, Mrs. Norman.' Before Judith returned, she had a long talk with her mother. She said, "Do give it up, darling, and come back east and live with us . . I'd love it." Eva shook her head. "No . . . it's out of the question. I couldn't change my plans now, there's Marion to consider." "But why won't you?

Farm lands are going up in value, the experts warn, and these is an excellent prospect of a boom in agricultural lands. The lucky guys will sell out before the boom collapses, as it will. The experts who are working hard to figure out the 1944 election results will explain how it happened within five days of closing of the polls but they won't know any more about it then than they do now. You've probably heard the story about the woman who had three husbands. As each one died she had the remains cremated. Evidently she had husbands to burn. The French, it seems, have developed the custom of shaving the hair off the heads of women who kept company with the Nazis and, sometimes, a little tar and feathers are applied.

Then we could see each other every day. 1 do miss you so!" Eva's eyes were bright with tears. She said, " Well, perhaps that would work out. It was good of you to come. You're sure Cousin Marion hasn't been worrying you?" "Of course not. I wanted to be with you on your birthday." "Anyway, you can see I'm all right," her mother told her. "I suppose I was overtired.
