Beav'evbrook's'Express, have been moved to editorials of enthusiastic and rather remarkable praise by the American capture of Cherbourg. The -cautious and'conservative Times quite • bubbles over, while the Express hastens to refute any suggestion that the American part in the invasion has been played up unduly. ''Suggestions nave been made," the Express editorial says, "that American armies are' getting more than their due credit in this war. Nothing more un•' generous' could be saict or written. •Americans have proved themselves to be'a race of great fighters in the very front rank' of men at arms." Says The Times, "While every section of the Allied force made its contribution, the most immediate credit is due the gallant American troops who have 'driven' a path up to some of the most formidable prepared positions in Europe and smashed their way into Cherbourg with unsurpassable dash and vigor." • These well-deserved appreciations undoubtedly reflect the popular sentiment. They sound spontaneous as well as sincere, in contrast to official statements which sometimes seem to spring from ii sense of diplomatic etiquette as i well as from the heart. The, American GI isn't alone in the successful accomplishment'of this added task. The average Englishman's admiration of him is reciprocated over here-by our high regard for the British soldier-' : Relations among the governments of, the fighting Allies, while good, haven't always been a \ honeymoon. Plain Main Street citizens of all these countries, loo, have been confused and disappointed at times by the policies of Washington, Downing Street, the Kremlin or Chungking. But they just can't be distrustful or jealous of the heiws of Guadalcanal and Stalingrad and Alnmoin. The men who do the fighting, one suspects, are doing more than all the editorials and beads of government to weld the spirit of allied people into a common bond of purpose, understanding and trust. And up to now, they seem to be doing as well as the diplomats in solving the touchy problem of French friendship and co-operation. Minister Churchill has mentioned the great part played by radar in the war, but no official of our government has offered a word on such scientific accomplishments." Perhaps Dr. Langmuir failed to see the numerous American news stories and advertisements extolling and partially explaining radar, which were shut off some time ago by military censorship for security reasons. But surely he knows that, incentive or not, radar was a development of U. S- Navy scientists. And though our officials may not have talked much about it, American radar has proved to be an exceedingly handy gadget, We'll be hearing more about American radar after the war. Meanwhile its actioins are speaking eloquently, despite the gag of official reticence. SIDE GLANCES by Galbralth - .

In case you don't know what a squib is, it's a powder-filled tube of paper—a sort of crude firecracker. But even if you didn't know it, it was still a wonderful description. The very sound is ;i splendid, synthesis of courageous, imperturbable, thorougly British contempt.

Even when tully dressed she's worn less clothes since 19« lhan any woman in Hollywood. That wfis the year, she started wearing evening gowns cut so low the electricians on the nbovc-slnge catwalks had to be threatened with blindfolds. It was the year she started stripping her way back into the movies at Ken Murray's amazingly successful Hollywood musical show "Blackouts." "I couldn't get a job in pictures anymore," Marie said over n salad in Ihe M-O-M cafe.

So she went to work in "Dlack- nita" and displayed the sweater giri charms which Will Hays would ncv- ev permit on the screen. She figured ,he show would run a month or two ruid then she'd go back to New York for a musical. The show just started its third year. Finally, after a year and a hnlf, Hollywood rediscovered Marie. She was given a role In "Shine On Hur vest Moon" at Warner Bros., where she first won stardom as the gir in "Boy Mcels Girl." Then Paramount cast her in "You Can't Ha tion Love." Now she's playing a clarinet In mi all-girl orchestra in M-G-M's "Music for Millions." But she's slill one of the stars ol "Blackouts." "It's wonderful." she said. "I'm earning enonyh so I don't have to lake lousy roles." Marie plays one of her typical dumb blondes in "Music for Millions." but there's some heavy drnma. loo. She likes thai. Marie has been married for Iwo years to Alan Nixon of the Air Forces. She's the favorite pin-up girl of a lot of other genls in Ihe armed forces. One time husband Nixon noticed Marie's picture pinned up iu a fellow soldier's bunk. "Who's that?" asked Ntxou. "My girl." said the soldier. Nixon played dumb. But Betting back lo Ihose sensational evening dresses which Marie wears In 'Blackouts," she buys 'cm for $125 apiece. "But the sewing." she says, "isn't so good. They're always Tailing apart." ACQUIRED A "FOLLOWING" She wore one ot those dresses one night to a night club. "Bill that was the last time." she said.* "It almost started a riol. Soldiers and sailors followed me around all evening." Working with Ken Murray has been wonderful, she says. She works with Ken In all the comedy blackouts and also tells jokes. And has never missed a single performance In Ihose tv.o years. "Ken was even out with the fin .for fo\ir days and I took his role—without the cigar." Marie also does an abbreviated strip-tense In "Music for Millions." And also flutters tnose halt-Inch eyelashes. "Nobody ever believes they're real," she says.
