"Just one Instance perhaps wouldn't. But a lot, of Instances have, and will muka a different story." He expressed confidence that when employers "understand why this rather drastic step Is being taken, that In spile of Its Admitted Inconvenience, yon will gladly cooperate." Mr. Sharp explained thai all available male labor must tie offered jobs rated as most important to the war effort regardless of w.'ierc they are. Some jobs arc so vital to the war. effort Ih.-it they must be filled to Die exclusion of others. Arkansas must continue Io send men to certain war plants out of the stale because their production has been rated as more vital than ours he said.

They immediately substituted their own words and dozens of versions were sung in English French, German and Italian al across North Africa, Such was the song's appealing, sentimental quality that almost none of the substituted lyrics were bawdy—an almost unprecedented fact in Army ballads. When the tune got back to Britain, no music publisher would touch it with a 10-foot pole. It was, iliey reasoned, an enemy song But as lhe song began to be sung —unpublished though it, was—more and more people began lo demand lhe music and lyrics. COPYRIGHT TS A PROBLEM "A song Is a funny thing," says, Jimmy Phillip, president of Peter Maurice Music Co., Ltd., holders of the British copyright, "A tune is like a disease. You catch it and you can't get rid of It. When I first heard 'Ltlll Marlene,' I thought It was a nice tune, but l certainly never though l I'd publish it. But finally so many people asked for It that I had no choice." Publication wasn't easy. There was the question, first of all, ol copyright. That was solved by paying reproduction rights to the Public Custodian, cvho will hold ;thc money for the German copyright owners until there can be a postwar settlement. Equally important was the problem of lyrics which would exactly recapture lhe nostalgic, sentimental atmosphere of the German original. Delicious Foods — Reasonably Priced!
