It may be a native ignorance but we are often unable to fathom the mental processes of some of the mental giants of the preS-Cnt Cra , TT A case in point is the fear of Dr. Henry M. Wriston, president of Brown University, that "after fighting the Nazis to prevent German control of the world," the Allies "plan to control it". The learned gentleman seems to be against "control" of the world by anybody, apparently making little distinction, in this regard, to the type of controls that would be invoked by the Allies. Naturally, it is inevitable, if we have law and order, that there be controls. We am nnt wntrinF war aeainst controls but ' Lou Costello has signed Joan Fulton to a contract for his Biltmore Productions. Joan danced with Ray Bolger in "By Jupiter" and, oddly enough, she's another California girl who had to go to New York to attract Hollywood's attention. She once attended Beverly Hills High school and worked with Mickey Rooney and Olivia de Havilland in the Max Reinhardt production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Water Needed The extent of evaporation during hot weather calls for an extraordinary amount of water to balance the supply available for the plants. The amount, possible to apply by the ordinary garden hose is insufficient and is made less effective when sprayed through the air. It is ad-visable, then, that even with cold water, if the amount that can be used is limited, it be allowed to run in shallow trenches or applied directly to the soil rather than sprayed. la Unincorporated City Kannapolis, N. C, is the largest unincorporated city in the United States. Lynn Merrick and Tom Brown (now a first lieutenant) won't make a romantic decision until his return from overseas. They were ready to elope before he left, but since then two long; years have passed. However, it's still a fair bet that they get married on Tom's first leave. They have corresponded continuously and Lynn spends much time with Tom's mother.

I'ci-mmls Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Shovnly, of North Kleventh street, are the believe that, under their leadership, the world will be vastly different from similar control by the Axis powers. It is for this difference that we wage war. To defeat Germany and Japan and then permit the earth to drift lazily and carelessly into a situation inviting another combat for supremacy would be foolish. To use such controls are are necessary, in the opinion of the victorious powers, to prevent this is wisdom applied to global affairs. It goes without saying that our control will be different from German or Japanese control. The difference is best exemplified by a comparison of respective freedoms enjoyed by the people of the nations at war and by the populations of the nations they occupy. JET-PKOPKLLKD FIGHTERS.

Some experts say that the Nazi fighters attain a speed of more than GOO miles an hour, but that this has disadvantages because it is impossible to score accurate hits at such a velocity. The United States has a new jet-propelled fighter, the P-fili-A. Roll Aiiacomet, but it has not been tried in combat. Early in June, newspaper men were given an opportunity to witness the plane in flight and it has been known for sometime that jct-propulgion engines were under construction in this country. The use of these engines will undoubtedly work many changes in fighter design and battle strategy. Combat in the stratosphere is foreseen by experts who also look' for scientific devices to greatly increase defense against aerial attack. she'd take great pleasure In wring ?ve Nazis Yerri SYNOPSIS A Ratline and popular resident of T;ilbot. sk-cpy little Chesapeake Bay village; is S1KS.
