The overwhelming forces that will annihilate her are gathering on her borders and have already in two sectors invaded the supposedly impregnable fortress of the Reich. Fortress Europe that was to have been an insurmountable barrier to preserve the sacred soil of Germany inviolate against the encroachment of her enemies has fallen under the steady onslaught of Allied power.

Certainly not all German people have been impregnated with the Nazi poison. But Hitler has attached to himself enough of the fanatic youth and sufficient of his barbaric followers to stifle the cries of the little people for peace. Even if the ordinary people of Germany had been deluded by Hitler's indoctrination of the idea that all Germans are supermen, they must now realize such a doctrine was but the mad dream of a lunatic. Germany is doomed, but Hitler intends that his own destruction shall be accompanied by the destruction of Germany. His megalomania which made him the greatest force for evil in the world since Satan himself visited the Garden of Eden, which made him the destroyer of nations and the slaughterer of millions, impels him to a grandiose and spectacular end, equal . in destruction and horror to the life he has " lived: ' Germany is doomed. She might now' have a civilized peace, but she prefers to follow the madman who has led her to the brink of doom, and even as the precipice looms will not draw back. So be it. The cities of Germany will be destroyed even as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by the wrath of God. So the wrath of man will destroy Germany because there is no repentance in her. Germany is doomed. It is a sad and bitter thing that she must be destroyed, but the sins of her rulers shared in by her people have merited it, and the future of the human race demands it. So let it be. v Buy Their Own Policemen in two-thirdi of su American cities are required to buy their own uniforms, revolvers and ' other kind of personal equipment ' even their own bulletoJ In some ' cities. - 1,1 . .

The recent criminal assault and murder of a teen age girl employed as a war worker in Washington and the repeated stories of promiscuity among the thousands of irresponsible girls drawn to the capital by high government pay indicates the necessity for some action to be taken to protect the lives and virtue of the immature thousands. Steps taken to send girls under twenty back to their homes has met with the opposition of the War Department and the Civil Service Commission. Such opposition should be overruled. A careful combing of the rolls of employees in various government agencies would undoubtedly determine that the teen age girls could be spared without detriment to the war effort. It is a matter public comment and one that could easily be verified that the government has an excess of employees that might better be employed elsewhere in more productive work. Girls of the years suggested should be under the safeguards of home and church. They are too young and inexperienced to be herded in a great war time capital and exposed to the dangers inherent in the situation. More park guards or more welfare societies will not solve the difficulties. Send the girls home where they will be protected from dangers more perilous even than their brothers encounter in the armed forces.
