( ' It seems that their dwindling manpower reserve has forced the Nazis to impress prisoners from Asiatic Russia into service, and thus knock the racial sjipt^macy theoiv for a loop. For today the Gcirruns see about them a coii- gjomeiale collection of men in German uniforms whose complexion and bone structure proclaim them to be "inferior," according to thc master-race diet which Hitler fed his people for 10 years. ' ' That must be quite a jolt. And par- ticulailv bince m.uij of these foreigners wear.the SS uniform. The SS used to be thc of thc Nazi crop.

Movies Join the General Staff If Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton, perhaps a practice originated on America's football fields may be helping to win Ibis war.

She liad hit upon n system that \vc called "Maisio." Mnisic O'Driscoll had been one of the girls in the lino at Minsky's when Ginger hnd first started out there. Mnisic was the third f rom the left. Ginger the fourth. That kind of a setup makes for either rivalry or friendship. In this case they hit it ofT. objections coute! Boggio have if Ginger suddenly decided to see a whole lot ot her friend who had meanwhile married and settled down? And then one evening we became reckless: 5Jusier than ever. Boggio hat! told Ginger he'd be out until late./. "Let's go to' the Scheherazade," she suggested,- __ It was a flasliy place. The tables v>tre arranged in tiers around thc cinn'ce floor, enabling everyone fo Bct'n good view of the floor show that went on intermitlenlly tbrotigliout the evening. Our fable was on the highest tier, on a sort of mezzanine. The Scheherazade wasn't very big but (lie walls were practically all mirror and when half a dozen feirls kicked their legs it j'ookeci as if there were millions of them. Ginger nnd I were in excellent spirits and after a couple of cocktails became positively boisterous. "Hello Maisie," she grinned. "Hello Ginger." She turned to face thc mirror across from us. "Don't you think we make a pretty good tombiiiftlion?" "You bet \ve do. With my looks and your brains we're about the sninrlcsl couple in the joint," i We both laughed and then some- happened. Ginger turned to look at ncrsclf in thc mirror again nd the laugh froze on her face * * e "CHAT'S the matter?" - She didn't answer and her race was white as a sheet, 1 followed her gaze. The mirror she was looking into reflected the one facing the bar downstairs My gaze slowly traveled ilong several figures seated on the high stools then my stomach turned to lead Holding a glass of milk in one hand and talking excitedly (o n man whose face I couldn't SC e was Boggio. All ho had to do was look up and he'd see us. Practically paralyzed, I slowly turned back to Ginger again. "Oh, Leo," she murmured. "I'm scared. Get me out ot this. Do something, please!" "Shut up!" I snapped. "And dont move." H was" hard enough for me to figure out what we were going to do without having Ginger throw fit. In (his lousy Hall of Mirrors we had as much chance of romain- ng unseen as a couple of goldfish Finally I leaned forward 'Where's the little girls' room?" I whispered. "You might slip in here." "Right back of you," she answered. She \vas about to rise but " stopped her. "It's no good. When you walk >ast that mirror you'll be smack n his field of vision. Just stay put ind look at the menu." * » * fT was one of those huge affairs. A the size of a tabloid. She did as he was told and I continued to Milk. Maybe we could slip over o a less prominent spot? But the nacc was packed. Only one table vas empty and it was marked 'Reserved." It wasn't much better han ours but you clutch at niiy trnw in an emergency. Hiding ivy face I hailed the waiter ns he valked by. "Loak," I said. "Wo want to move to that table over there. Can you arrange it?" "Sony. We've been holding it for s-ome regulars. And I've promised it to n couple of gentlemen .it the bar if the parly doesn't show tip in five minutes." "One of them drinking a glass of milk?" i managed to say "Yes." I beckoned to him to come closer. Me leaned down. "I don'l want him Io see roe. Stall Him. Get him out of here I'll'make it worth your while." 'I'm sorry. I've already promised him thc- table," This was no time for arguing. "How much did he give you?" I inquired. The waiter hesitated. "Come on!" I snapped. "How much?" 'Ten dollars," he said reluctantly. I fumbled in my pocket, pulled out a wad of notes and peeled off three fives. I slipped them into his willing hand. "Tell him you're sorry bill that party is arriving. They've just phoned you. Give him back his ten bucks. When he goes I'll give you another fifteen." He bowed, shoved the plates on a tray, nnd scurried off. After a while I mustered up enough courage (o look in the mirror, De>wn al the bar the waiter was arguing w ith Boggio.
