He dived into the woods One more Irak nnd the sergeant would have seen an American star painted over the swastika, and a Yank at the steering wheel Tt wasn't until five or six American trucks passed by in the next two hours that Bolin decided he must be inside American lines. v Then there's the case of Sergeant ' Charles Knaus, of St. Louis, a tail- gunner on the same crip'ptai Fortress, lie was fired at. while dropping with his parachute by Amer T icau engineers who llvnight he was n Nazi parachutist. He started limning ns soon as he landed and didn't stop until he heard some Americans shouting instead of .shooting. Says Knaus, "The was Ihe second best moment of my life.

It emphasizes Ihe recent warnings of leading military and naval authorities, that the first timid hopes of those contrivances are developing into soaring nights toward a future when they will bo decisive weapons. The long-range missiles have just begun to fight Already, they fight more effectively than at their first appearance. The .enemy is solving the problems' of aiming and range; not completely, but more than is realized. Some buzz-lxrnibs have a radio signal that Hashes the robot's position .when it dives. The launchers then, by map triangulatlon find the spot where they hoped it would fall adjust for weather and wind and shoot another flock. Apparently the faster the robot, the more accu- rat-e.—.-ltB^rarige - is -greater • - than when wc'-believcd that lo stop it we need only capture the rather miscalled "rocket coast." The • real rockets, the V-12's, avc been striking Britain for over a month.
