TUESDAY, JULY 18, 1944 WACs In France Learn To Shoot Girls Not Equipped (, ) With Firearms But J Practice Anyway SOMEWHERE, ON THE CHERBOURG PENINSULA, July 18 (UP) —The first WACs have lauded In Prance and are working 20 miles behind the battle front. Trained, as one WAC puls It, "to shoot sort of mildly" nnd carrying shovels to dig fox holes In event of enemy raids, thc group of 49 en- Ilslcd girls nnd six officers arrived In Normandy on a Iroop transport on Baslille Day. Tlie group Is commanded'by Capt. . Isabel B: Kane of Tacoma, Wash., « former dancing teacher. First to set foot on French soil was 1st Sgt. Nancy Carter of Char- loHes'vllle, Vri. Thc Gfs grdeated the WACs with cries'of'• "Here come the morale builders," And French villagers .Cheered as they drove through nag decorated streets. Tlie girls blvouaced in parks and were warned against picking roses or knocking at strange doors as n precaution against booby trails They practiced shooting in cas c of emergency but they were not equipped with firearms. All are clerks o:- secretaries with the exception of one jeep driver United Press Correspondent Dudley Ann Harmon landed with the WAC.s, and she reports' that the first WACs to set foot down in Normandy consider life at the front as 'relaxing; 1 after the .robot bombing of Britain.. ; Actually (heir life is rugged. German snipers still lurk in tlie neighborhood and the girls are ordered never to walk alone. Fields and ronrts are mined and the WACs stick pretty close to headquarters. ' / i^' P ' Cc "' rcs Ponrient Harmon says fjsyto WAC cooks stepped up to one f*^eary, OI who said, "it sure is nice to see you women. I've been work- Ing over this stove for 48 hours , without a break." The girls say their first interest Is backing up the boys to win the war. Intt come the day when .the Nazis have been beaten, they plan an Invasion of their own. Their destination is ' Paris nnel their objectives arc n pretty dress una a bottle of French perfume.

Since the war began, this balance has .shifted. British holdings have been disposed of to an unknown but large. degree to finance the war. American holdings have been Ingreased. But all these foreign holdings, however distributed, have given (lie Argentine nationalists a nnlura) rallying ground to overcome the domination of foreign capital and build'up an "Argentina for the Argentines." After the military coup of a year ago, the Argentine government actually put Interventors, .or supervisors, In the offices of many of the leading ' foreign-owned corporations. There have been a few reports of actual expropriation. On July 27. 1943. supervision was assumed over several U. S. companies technically accused of violating price laws—Ford, General Motors, Goodyear. Firestone, Machelln, and International Harvester. On Sept. 8, Dec. 10, and May 13, Argentine police took control of subsidiaries of the . American and Foreign Power Company, operating street railways and public utllt- " es - ' i: I'll!

AS a poslivar factor It might provide a principal problem and much of thc danger In dealing with this peculiar, nmde- in-lhe-Argentine brand of •nationalism. IT'S NOT JUST A FLASH IN T1IK PAN The Argentine situation, in other words, Is no mer c upstart revolution of a bunch of swaggering young military hotheads, but a really tough International political problem. How much of thc present Argentine nationalism Is Axis dominated or master-minded Is a mii's- tion which no one can answer. But it does have all thc trappings of the European variety of dictatorship-Congress disbanded elections positioned, local democratic government done away with for federal military government, freedom of spcccli and of thc press abolished. What the United Stales government faces Is Ironical — we have driven out the Nazi influence In all of Latin-America save the Argentine—only to find thtu we have to deal with a still more potent variety of new world Fnsclsn* springing up in thc southern lip •of th c Western Hemisphere and callable of growing. . .
