The rapid advance of Allied soldiers in Europe keeps ahead of news dispatches and makes it impossible for news maps, even when telegraphed, to accurately portray the battle-line situation. Our soldiers are advancing so rapidly that it appears impossible for the Nazis to make a stand. The war of movement prevents stabilization of German lines and, unless the Germans can make a stand on a fixed line, the destruction of the German armies is assured.

To ordinary people who have the burden of raising children on small incomes this seems like a lot of money. The wonder is how it can be intelligently used. The truth of the matter is that, despite the fortune expnded each year, the 11-year-old boy probably gets no better "support, education and recreation" than the dying? Dan shrugged.
