They gushed over boardwalks atM piers and covered coastal highways with several feet of water. At Carolina Beach, waves ripped boards from the board walk and flung them Inland many yards.

For more than an hour after the Bates were thrown open, the crowd flowed Into the bis military area, end scattered to Inspect the planes, swimming pool, athletic fields, link trainers, and other facilities. At 2 o'clock the post theater was packed with an eager throng. Col. Kurt M.

At 3 o'clock the center of activity moved to the post baseball diamond, where the locals played a closely contested game with the Cape Oirardeau "Capers," losing by a score of 2 to 1. Even with long dlstanc&s to travel to their homes, many remained until 5:15 o'clock to witness the Impressive military ceremony of retreat.

' . . Even now, In tiny ways, those workers arc chipping away at the. foundations of Germany's military might. Only recently, a Ucrllu newspaper had tills to say: "The foreign workers, not only .lews and Poles, hut those of nil nationalities, lack our German discipline and the right spirit toward work. They never have had working morale." The article continued: "It Is amaxlni- to what ends they will RO to avoid exerting themselves. During work, when the German supervisor Is lodklnc In the other direction, they blow their noses, scratch behind their cars and look at the sky." Production generally drops when foreigners take over. The ffazls themselves place this reduction at 35 to 'Id per cent, nut for Frenchmen, long schooled In the slow-down and sabotage, It's 60 per cent. Ucsplsccl By Nazis Little wonder that the unwilling guests hate their (inhospitable hosts. They're treated as dirt under the German Jackboot. The Nazi Elite O.iard's arrogant newspaper once said: "Let the foreigner do the unskilled work. It Is more flltlnE on racial grounds that ho should In all circumstances serve the Germans." And Hitter himself has said: "We shall consider it n matter of course not to husband foreign lives at a time that Is exacting such hard sacrifices of our own lives." 'Hie Nazis have rigged up what they call a "blood hierarchy" based on brnlal German racial myth.';. First In social prcsllRC arc workers with wliojn Germany has labor agreement';, such as Spain, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. Second come what the Germans call "Nordic" workers, Dutch, Danes and Norwegians, Third are laborers from western Euroiw, the French and Belgians. Fourth, the eastern European workers, Estonians, Latvians, Liths nnd Czechs. And last, Poles and Russians. In general, the tough Jobs, mining and agriculture, go to the eastern Europeans, Industrial work to the western Europeans. The Ger- iniins themselves get the best spots. And they're warned repeatedly that since they're the "master race" they must act the part. One list of regulations to the German people says: "On the whole, no comradeship may take place at work with these people. . . it is expected that Oer- irmn workers will show at all times that they are better people. One BcrUner was sentenced to a concentration camp for dining with Polish workers. A German at Maintz was given two years at hard labor for allowing a Polish domestic servant to appear in a family snapshot. Women have been sentenced to a year In jail for dancing with foreigners. Small wonder those foreigners are only walling for the day when the slave shall become master and the master shall die.

Germany and the downfall of Japan will bo 'much nhorter than he had at , ono time supposed. Only onu dark nasiaKe .spotted Ilio otherwise oiillmtstic rcnort. The t'rlnie Minister said Germany's flying bombs have killed over 4700 persons nnd caused the evacuation of one million txmdoiicr's.

In a' verbal tour of the warring world, Ohiirqhlll leporled on every front and cvbiy sector. As for Gci,- jiiany'.s internal front, the Prlmo Minister Bald "tremendous: events',' are taking place in the' Reich "which 1 must shock to the .foundations the confidence of the ncople mid the loyalty of the armies." "The highest personalities In the rcclch,' he snld, "are murdering one another or trying to." Touching Russian Army on the Normandy front, Clnlrelilll said Hie news from there Is ''extremely good.'- American forcck have speared half-way across the Breton Peninsula's base. And Churchill added that German losses have been more than double those of the Allies. Ho then turned the power of his oratory in praise of the Hed Army. He said: .; "Tl Is. the Russian . Arniy who have done most of the work •' of leiiring tiie gtils. out of Germany."' 7 But for the Soviet effort, he said, no force In the world could have broken Germany's armed might for several years. ::•',' ,1 Said the Prime Minister: "I firmly, believe that our 20- year treaty with Russia will prov? to be nne of the most lasting and durable (actors In preserving the peace and good order of Europe." As for the war al 'sea,' Britain's war leader revealed that Allied slilp losses to U-boats have been 'almost negligible" this year as against those of former years. , : In fact, he said, they've been.less than one-half the losses Inflicted on the haval forces of Japan and Germany. Notes Turkey's Break Skipping to the diplomatic fronts, Churchill noted that Turkey has ruptured relations with Germany. He said: ' • , ; • "No one .can tell whether "Germany and Bulgaria will attack the Turks, but'/ If so we shall make common cause with her and shall take the .German menace as 'well as we can in our stride." Delations with the French Committee of ^Liberation, he said, have improved / greatly. General De Gaulle, Churchill believes, "should stand first and foremost In the days when France shall be raised to her 'rightful place." Churchill's words were optimistic about the war equally against Japan. He said the British fleet In eastern waters will bft greatly strengthened by the end of the year. And he pointed out that the ' United States fleet already is Amer Tobacco 72 double the size of the Japanese Anaconda Copper 26 I-*!navy. ; •' India, he said, has been successfully defended against invasion.
