"The speed with which the mighty British and American armies in France were built up is almost incredible," declared Prime Minister Churchill, in his recent speech to the House of Commons. Giving as much information as possible "without telling the enemy anything he does not already know," the Prime Minister said that in the first twenty-four hours, a quarter of a million men were landed in Normandy, "in the teeth of fortified and violent opposition". By the twentieth day, "a million men were ashore" and "there are now between two and three million men in France." Mr. Churchill points out that the "armies are equipped with the most perfect modern weapons and every imaginable contrivance of modern war". He adds that "immense artillery supported all their operations and enormous masses of armor of the highest quality and character gave them extraordinary offensive power and mobility". Moreover, "many hundreds of thousands of vehicles sustained their movements. Many millions of tons of stores already had been landed and the great bulk of everything over the open beaches or through synthetic harbors". . Mr. Churchill paid tribute to American soldiers for "their" valiant, ruthless, bat-tleworthy qualities," and to the "skill of their commanders and excellent supply arrangements". Considering the small regular army of the United States and its lack of a great body of troops or munitions four or five years ago, he said, "The American achievement is truly amazing".

Ridgway Ware Ridgway ware, pottery famous for its "old blue," was first manufactured in a pottery at Hanley, Staffordshire, England, in 1794 by Job Ridgway.

"I'll never settle down, Mrs. Reynolds, and you know you'd wander off on the highway with me il you could walk out of that chair and kick it into a ditch." And there was truth enough In that, these lovely days, for her to laugh with him instead of being serious with him. Russell told her Dan refused to accept clothes or anything but food and shelter, which he insisted on earning by taking care of the house and cooking most of the meals. Mrs. Gander had gone to Baltimore for an operation. Dan said Russell had enough expenses and troubles without any being added. Mrs. Reynolds was quite sure he meant Laura Laura made no pretense of liking Dan. Laura did pretend to be very fond of Anne, but actually missed no opportunity to Dan today. The iltdeboat wu trx far out in the river for her to distinguish then, but somehow she was sure they were enjoying themselves p- she wanted them to do.

She acted as L sometime, probafci" in New York, she had been badly hurt, undoubtedly by some man. No woman ever could hurt m sincere girl as a man could. Laura could be spiteful and cutting, but Ann seemed quite oblivious to her sarcasm. Yet somebody In New York had hurt Anne enough to make her say she never intended going back there. Well, she could close her eyes for a little nap until they came back. Dr. Banning was coming to dinner, and Mr. Thatcher, and they were all going to talk roses.

Says Mr. Churchill, "Such is the price paid in blood by the English-speaking democracies for the actual liberation of the soil of France". Taking into view the entire European scene, with the campaign in France and Italy, the Prime Minister told the British House of Commons "that after more than five years of war, we still maintain almost exactly the same numbers of divisions in the field of action against the enemy as the United States, by all shipping resources which can be employed, has yet been able to send to Europe." Considering the population of the British race, only 70,000,000 and the many losses sustained by the British in the early years of the war, Mr. Churchill expresses pride in "this remarkable effort," which is "most fully and cordially recognized by our American colleagues, chiefs of staff and others".

But at least she made no further efforts to bring Mrs. Slotts into the scene. Mrs. Reynolds definitely was having her own way and she liked that, fehe had declared her independence of Laura, Dr. Banning and all. She now insisted she didn't need any nurse at all, and Anne waa really a companion. That certainly was true. Anne had been an Meal companion.

She woke with a start to see Laura standing over her angrily. This is too much," the girl cried. "There is a limit to everything. You might have gone right over into the water." Mrs. Reynolds didn't tike being startled. "I thought something had happened." "Something is going to happen. Where is that girl ?

Anne had pretended not to want to go, but it hadn't been a very good oretense. As a bluffer. Anne wasn't much good. You could see right through her. Of course she wanted to go out with Dan. Any girl would. He made you laugh. You forgot his shabby clothes and saw only his laughing eyes. Mrs. Reynold) sighed and watched the sailboat make a long tack toward Benoni's Point. Dan was good with a boat, although he'd breezily told Anne that she'd better say her prayers before trusting herself to him. He always had been good at whatever he wanted to do for as long as he wanted to do It. The trouble had been that, even aa a boy. he never wanted to stick to anything. His mother had spoiled him.
