Ti e southern American Army also fell hack. Then there were great fears that our two fighting units might not be able to join i:' the center and accomplish the defense of Manila. On January 2, that consolidation was made, but on the same day the Nipponese broke through our line in four places, and Manila fell beneath the heel of the invader. On the following day, Gen. MacArthur ordered the Cavite Naval Station abandoned, and that a new line be formed which was to be anchored just west of Manila extending in a semi-circle to the west to the China Sea. That line was in protection of the now famous Bataan Peninsula. Next commenced the heart-breaking inch by inch withdrawal of the Filipino and American troops southward. That bloody and desperate battle of Bataan lasted for five endless months. Gen. MacArthur was ordered to Australia by President Roosevelt. The wisdom of that order has been mode than proved by our current operation on Luzon. Before he left, he said those now famous words "I will return," and today, Gen.

"What do you mean?" "Well, did he consider going back to Germany to live, for instance?" said Nugent. "Good gosh, no," said Craig. "He was a little hipped about family, that was all. He thought a lot about pure Nordic blood . . ." "Approved of some of Hitler's idea, in other words?" "So! It was only at the beginning of the Hitler regime that he was rather taken with some of the ideology it claimed resurrecting the old Teutonic family life, improving the race, keeping family blood pure, that kind of thing.

But I didn't go straight on to Drue's room, for the first thing I had to do wat writ a letter to the police.
