Altogether, the successful invasion of German-held Europe, involving the cross-channel transport of men and supplies, the attack upon heavily fortified defensive positions and the breach of cleverly utilized hedgerow positions, with losses far below those suffered by the enemy, was a military miracle. EXPLAINING A "FAILURE". A reading of German communiques for the past two years has revealed many interesting examples of how the Berlin war office covers up decisive defeats. As everybody knows, the Rhone Valley has been the scene of a terrific German disaster. The Allies, after landing, proceeded up the river at a record-breaking pace, meeting with ineffectual resistance. Here is how the news of this battle was reported to the German people over the German radio: "In the Rhone Valley, all enemy attempts to overtake our marching movements in the sector of Valence failed." Certainly, one would have to know the facts from other sources to understand that "marching movements" represent a retreat that almost equals a rout and that the "enemy attempt" which "failed" means that the Nazis ran so fast that our units could not keep up with them. Chicago Dr. Marcus Nadler, finance professor tells American Bankers Association : "The only way to solve the public debt problem is the hard way namely, through the institution of economy on the part of the government and its subdivisions, through an increase in production of the country and an adequate tax system." Washington Jean A. Brunner, newly-elected commander-in-chief of the Veterans of Foreign Wars: "The German people accepted Hitler and his gang, and they should be made to pay through the nose through imposition and enforcement of economic and social controls."

She wanted something youthful and colorful. It was what Laura couldn't understand in her own mother. It was part of Laura's serious outlook on life not to understand anything that wasn't serious. She had mocked Dan. And now Dan was bu, a shabby hobo, proving she was right in her original estimate of him. Russell thrust the pin back into his pocket and went down to the kitchen. Dan was eating cold pork and beans and crackers and jelly. He looked up and grinned with a mouth full.1 "I only made a little raid this time." "Why didn't you heat things up? There are the tongue and chicken soup. Why, you didn't even make coffee for yourself. Or take some more beer." "I can't be bothered. Don't worry about me." "But I am worried. Play the radio tonight and stay in. Tomorrow I'll take you to Weston andi get you some clothet. Have you a' suitcase or anything?" "What a laugh. It's only In ma azines where you bum your way around the country with suitcase and radios. What you don't see I haven't got." "You could wear a suit of my pajamas tonight." "Huh.

Mr teynolds is one of the few people m Talbot who ever asked after you." The young man ran a hand nervously through his hair. Then he glanced down at his shoes and shook his head. "I can't go visiting like this." "There are razors upstairs. If anything of mine fits you . . ." "What a laugh. No. Run along. I'll just eat something and go for a walk. I won't pester you more than a couple of days." "Then where are you going?" "I'll head west again, I guess. I just came from there, but that's the way it goes. You know, this canned stuff is the nearest I've been to heaven In ages. Look-tongue, ham, chicken, tuna. Whom were you saving it ail for?" "Maybe you." Russel said t, then turned and went out of the kitchen and up the steep stairs. It was as near emotion as he had let himself come. He knew clearly that he must not let himself feel sorry for Dan, who had always been unstable, careless, mockingly Independent even as a boy. It was well over two years ago that Dan had disappeared, saying Lindy Home mine is yours, and what's yours is mine. The first part doesn't mean much, but the second part is music to me. When do we tat V "I've already eaten. I have most of my meals in Weston." "Ah, yes. The lawyer must eat within the shadow of the courthouse."

Russell hesitated a moment, then went Into the kitchen, where he unlocked a large cabinet which was oiled with food in tins and Washington President Eric A. John has wandered back.

The whole place was locked up, incidentally, so I had to break a pane of glass to get in." He pointed to the window over the sink. "Why all the locks, anyway? Don't you trust whoever cleans for you?" "Mother liked to keep things locked and eliminate temptation." Dan grinned. 'Tame old Russell, aren't you? Still sticking to the letter of the law "I'm a lawver.'

Before that, he had gotten Into all sorts of trouble, been put out of every school he'd been sent to. Once or twice a brief scrawl on a postcard had come, and it was to one of these vague addresses that Russell had written, saying their mother was dying and wanted Dan to come home. And Dan had received lt in jail. It was good she had never known that. It would have shaken the one belief she had clung to, that Dan would meet a good girl somewhere, somehow, and she would make him over. That had been a dream, too, like all the other plans by which Dan was to come out on top of the heap. Now Dan was back, and there was no sign he had changer at all, except to be more irresponsible than ever. He had come home and calmly broken a pane of glass because the door was locked. So he had always broken anything which stood between him and the momentary object of his desires. Like all shiftless people, he was also ruthless. He would stay here now until he felt the urge to wander off and disappear again. He wouid accept no . analyze ston of the U. S.

Dan's ye were' mocking. Russell went out to his car through the front of the house. He! was half furious at Pan and at the ' same time half sorry for him. There was a new wistful note about Dan: which there had never been before.-Taking canned beans instead of the ham or chicken was indicative ot it. Before, the best of everything had been barely good enough for him. Before, he would have leaped at the chance of ge'.ting a new suit.' Before, he would have want money as w ell as figareu.
