AIRBORNE ATTACK xNO FAILURE The peculiar psychology of some American writers is exemplified by the conclu-sio cf L. S. B. Shapiro who, in reviewing tl v. in Europe during 1944, concludes I..V . 'ure to capture Arnheim" robs i i -f wrtunity to end the war in '.t by no means a certainty. Even had captured Arnheim there is .ii 'ike proof to indicate that the war , . : ...ive been concluded before 1945 be- om this start the writer goes into explanation for our "failure," which, k. , as we can judge, was not a failure but a brilliant operation which came with-jn an ace of scoring a tremendous success. Just because the airborne offensive in Holland failed to end the war there is no sense In concluding that it was a complete failure. 'V! -n the airborne army was dropped from the skies in September its operation Was e;;;hty per cent successful. Three of four l iver bridges were seized and the last, leading to Arnheim, was held by the enemy after hard and bitter fighting. The British Second army surged forward many miles and our general position in Europe was greatly improved. This was not a failure although the airborne operation did not end the war. While our commanders may have been optimistic in expecting results we have no evidence that any of them were counting on complete victory from the operation and we doubt if they consider the campaign a roi.iMiil Sunday anil Monday Taking a Backward Glance !

This is an interesting assertion, but there is nothing much to substantiate it. Practically everyone remembers the argument that if the women got the vote, politics would be cleaned up. It hasn't worked out that way. An interesting question in regard to the sentence quoted is how are the women of the world to assert themselves? While it may be that "in every land, man's management has caused woe," there is no reason to suspect that woman's management would cause less. h ?6VEAIkS HAVE PASSED I Twenty -six years ago the President of t5 United States was in Paris, upon the occasion of the treaty-making that concluded the details of the Allied victory over the Central Powers.
