"Hello, Ramsay," he possible and desirable to carry out its constitutional method is an inspiration in the strength of democratic government. Incidentally, it makes silly the predictions, offered by gloomy professors of disaster, that we would not have an election. Naturally, in the efforts of the various candidates to persuade the voters to cast favorable ballots for their election, many foolish statements will be made. The men on the stump, and their supporters, will say things that are exaggerated and, oc ginia Weidlcr pot off the train with the wrong brief case and lost all the new mur'cal arrangements said, "that's a beautiful gown you almost have on." What he didn't know was that the gown was designed by his ex-wife, Carol Crane. Steve's date of the evening was Sheila Ryan and it's interesting to note that he has given her a gold and ruby pin with matching ear rings, casionally, things that are utterly untrue. There is no reason to be alarmed by the. tirades that blast the citizen's ears. While our campaigns are not entirely marked by excellence in manners, they are Why Kilowatt? ' A thousand times a man's name fs the word kilowatt, electrical unit of power, derived from Greek, chilici, one thousand, and Watt (James), name of scientist who devised mechanical unit of power and named it horsepower.

NEWS DOESN'T GUARANTEE PEACE. The cause of world peace will be helped, we believe, by the promulgation of rules designed to provide for the free collection and publication of news. Jt would be a mistake, however, to assume that this, of itself, will guarantee world peace. The right to publish news is not synonomous with its publication. We have seen repeated instances of what we consider unfair coverage of issues and.' events in the United States where the press is free to collect and print the news.

I've been terlous any more. My daughter ' she's really my granddaughter, but sometimes she's older and more crotchet ty than I am well, she left a message that y u were not to come here today.

That's settled. : do want you. Put that old witch, Mrs. Slotts, in with me? Not while I've got a cane I can swing good and hard. Do you want to stay here?" "Of course, but if it's to cause trouble, and ..." Mrs. Reynolds banged her cans loudly on a chair. "Answer me yes or no. Are you going to be my friend or aren't you?

"We are well over a month ahead of schedule," declares a pooled broadcast from Paris, reporting on the progress of the Allied armies in Western Europe. This means that the Allies have gained much time since the break-through into Brittany. It was started, prior to the beginning of General Pattern's dash through France, that the Allies were behind schedule. Considering the heavy losses sustained by the Germans in the disaster in France, , it should be possible for the Allied armies to break the Siegfried Line in loss time than it took them to get out of the Normandy peninsula.
