Anne', vole wa. like music and rhe had missed her so. Now she didn't mind the pain .o much, .ince It was the pain which had brought Anne back. But she wouldn't say anything about her having been gone. As long as the subject was never mentioned, It was cr-sier to pretend Anne never hau lx ;n gon. and that awful sc n the hall was only a ight-maic that she must forget. Since Laura had been at least civil to Anne, It was better than before. The only trouble was In herself. She had to lie in bed now. She hadn't been In her chair rince falling out of It. Maybe she would never be In It again. Inasmuch as it had been taken out of the room. Maybe this was the last stage, the helpless stage, when she had to lie In bed until death came.

The comedy inoiiienls are No American should get the impression that the Soviet armies are not fighting the Germans, tooth and nail. We may get the wrong impression because the headlines are now being given to the operations in Western Europe and in the Pacific. The Red Army has been systematically clearing the Balkan and Baltic States, in anticipation of a major assault against Germany. Already, in East Prussia, the Soviet armies have occupied a number of German settlements in East Prussia. Those familiar with the first World War remember the great German victory at Tannenburg. Marshal von Hindenburg won a great triumph in the Masurian Lakes region and, naturally, the Red Army will move cautiously in such a dangerous area. Assuming that the Soviet is cooperating with the Allied forces in Italy and Western Europe and that they are proceeding according to a timetable designed to deliver a massive assault upon Germany, the stage seems about set for the beginning of an ambitious attempt to conclude the war against Germany. In Italy, the fighting has been stubborn and hard, but the Allies have made some gains and inflicted considerable losses upon the Germans. Along the West Wall, British, American and Canadian soldiers have undoubtedly built up their supplies and are about ready for another spectacular advance. In the East, the Russians have had time to get set for a major advance from Polish bases. Together, the three attacks, supplemented by operations in the Balkan area, may be more than the Germans can stand at the same time. CONFLICTING VIEWS ABOUT CHINA. The situation in China, where Japanese armies are making some progress in their efforts to establish an overland route from Korea to Singapore as an alternative supply line for troops in Malaya, Indo-China and other areas, is not clear to many Americans and it is rather difficult to appraise conditions in a country so far away.

Ii-k Factory Agiii-iiiiiit Covirh I I Months I'eriod; Liu Lianv-mo, rormer morale oiiieer with General Chiang Kai-shek's forces, says that blame for the current military defeat in China should be placed upon the political situation within the country rather than upon lack of American supplies. He insists that disunity exists in China, attributing it to reactionary elements, and adds that "there are quite a few concentration camps in China". This appraisal of the situation is somewhat at variance with that of Dr. Wei Ta-oming, the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, who says that the Chinese are "fighting against fire power with moral power" and that if the Chinese were not suffering from long years of blockade, the Japanese would have already met disaster in their overland drive. The Ambassador admits that the situation is serious but not that it is desperate and asserts that millions of troops are eager to do their full part and that when the blockade is lifted and they are adequately supplied, the Chinese will "join forces with our allies and fight back to Tokyo." WELL SPENT, The Navy is currently spending close to $350,000,000 a month for ordnance, which includes ammunition, guns, mounts and similar material. For ammunition alone the sum of $100,000,000 is spent every month. These are large sums but, in view of the results, especially apparent in the Pacific, the nation is getting value received for the money.
