Civilians in London . nnd southern England are deriving n certain satisfaction in the reeling that they. are. to some extent, sharing (he perils of Uielr fighting men. With everyone It's matter of pride to carry on regardless, and people are 'traveling, working, even .• playing without n hint'or the jitters, . While there has bean mass evac-i uitllon—close to 180,000 women n»'l children, ns well ns .tlie old and infirm^-llierc arc. suVprtsingly. still a number of children about, especially in the London suburbs.

The removal of the ban on mnny southern nnd western constai "districts resulted In hotels nnd rooming houses being owcrwhelme'd with? requests for rooms. Suburbia has settled down once again to a "fortress" life, it has dragged its mattresses clown from upstnirs bedroom.'; to living or dining room where once a mnid In starched cnp and apron waited at table. Meals are eaten in the kitchen and the last trace of chichi hns disappeared. EVERYONE SURDS RESTRAINT III London and everywhere else for that matter there is no longer any diffidence nbout flinging yourself on the ground or floor to avoid being hurt by glass ..nnd other debris. I was shopping at the local grocery store one Saturdny nftcr- noon when n "doodle" was heard approaching and everyone—customers and assistants alike— went down like a flash. . Commuting, you find that a P plane overhead will quickly melt whatever reserve your fellow travelers still cling to. Our crowded train was standing nt a junction stnlion the other evening when we heard and saw a bomb coming. Everyone threw himself on the platform and on the floor of the coacl So that women would not be injured by glass from shattered win- flows the men in our coach pu their backs up against the glass and pushed the women down or the seals.

For many a' war wife the first /ear or two after the return Of her Husbnnd may be a more difficult licrlod of ndjustincnl than the years of .reparation endured while the war lasted. • For she thinks during the separation Hint all of her problems will solved the day her husband returns to her. As a infillcr-of-fact, =he may be faced with a whole new set of problems with'no comforting philosophy to keep up her courage. ' No less an authority thin) Col. William C. Mennlngcr, chief of the Division of Neuropsychlatry of the Office of the Surgeon General, says Hint the man sent to war may be; problem lifter lie eels home, evpn though he never left this country and even though he is Just nil overage veteran, nnd not one discharged ns n psychoneiirotlc. The reasons for this, says Col. Mennlngcr, -are that service men will come back different fellows because "they'll all have known some degree of siress. They'll be more aggressive, more restless, full of Indecision:" . . WANTS HIGH 1'AV And he goes on to point out: 'The veteran 1ms heard of $10l)-n- iveek jobs. .He's going to look for them—nnc! Ihey'll be .scarce. Also, somebody has fed and clothed and mid him for two or three years. There hns been no way for him to ;ct, Into serious economic difftcul- ;!(«. He's had a philosophy of living from day to day with no sense uf losponslbllty for anybody else. Even the allotments to his family came out, of his pay automatically. It will be hard for him to sellle down." That doesn't sound ns though nil of n wife's problems are going to be over fts soon as her husband" returns to her.
