MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 1941' _ BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS IS WHILE Scene From Haybrook's Brash Beats Blazes Then Brings Out Brushes To Depict War Horrors When German incendiary bombs raxed the ancient "city" district of London, heroes of the day were the men \vno fought the lires. Paul Manning tells ihc story u f fireman-artist fjayhruok. BV PAUL MANNING NEA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON. Jan. G.—The 30,000 me n nghiing fires in London have won the praise or every man. woman and child now living in this world's largest city. They have been called heroes and some havc- been awarded medals f 0r conspicuous bravery. Bui there Is no compensation, no -sick leave with pay for firemen injured by the Luftwaffe trick, of returning to a file and dropping more oil. bombs and moi'e ' high explosives on the same spot. The firemen just- retire irom duty, nursing themselves back to health while living on money saved out of a salary of $12 a week. Attempts have been made to c:o;-;oct this during the pasi months when the fire soldiers proved to be as much the saviors , of i.ondontown as the R \ F I SKETCHED WORLD \VVR AND DUNKIRK SCENES Rudolph Haybrook, however, is' one man determined to do something. For Rudolph Haybrook is not only a fireman but an. artist, who can paint pictures which sell. 1 Thai is why one-third of' the pro- i erects from his paintings f of London fire scenes, now being exhibited at London's swank Leicester Galleries, will be donated to the firemen's' Benevolent Fund. ' Rudolph Haybrook was an artist i long before becoming a fireman, j Paralyzed during a drive along the Westem Front, during the last war, he lay for months in' a base ( hospital. Gradually he began sketching to pass time, and gradually he became more adept at draw- ine the scenes around him. | He worked hard at his new craft, learned it well. Today, one of his paintings is on permanent exhibition at the National Gallery. It's a Dunkirk Scsne. For during tiie .B. E. P. retreat from Dunkirk" I Haybrook was aboard the fire-' tender Massey : Shaw during the one voyage it made to evacuate soldiers. When the little boat moved slowly away from the sandy beach .with • a full load of exhausted men, Hay- ; brook captured thai, memorable' scene on a sketch pad. His worst moment, he describes as that time.! "Bombs and shells were all around us. On the way out, one of the engines stopped. Everyone expected a bomb to fall dead on the little ship but somehow the engineer got the boat moving again and we reached England "THERE WAS ! HAYBROOK—" ! Eighteen months ago.- with sketch ! pad and paints, Haybrook joined the London Fire Brigade as a' member of the auxiliary force ' working the full time shift of 48 hours on duty and 24 hours off. 1 And in 18 months he has produced > a series of rather remarkable docu-! mentary paintings of the biggest fires London has experienced. As a brigade member he works al a fire with the rest of his unit until ! the blaze is well under control J Then he begins to hastily sketch": in a rapid effort to capture the i scene before its vividness has disappeared. ! As one fireman remarked after! a particularly dangerous fire: "There wa.s Haybrook with his easel, making a sketch by the light-: ol the names with enemy bombers overhead."

The British artillery laid down a^ heavy creeping barrage ahead o;" the advance. Bui the engineers were soon under heavy fire. As one ci' them went down, another step- pad up and . took on his job of snipping the wire. During the darkness before [he r.3ro hour, the engineers had blown •up the formidable Italian tank ditch at selected points. Working noiselessly and quickly they' filled in paths across the ditch with the sand they had blown . ( Occasionally the fire became too r-ot. and engineers and infantrv were ordered to halt. As soon as they did, a cruiser tank would lumber up. whs el toward the Italian lines and open fire \vith its cannon at Italian machine gun snd sniper nests. Over the paths across the tank ditch, ihc tanks advanced, and. cinasaed tiie Italian perimeter forts surrounding Bardia. Other tanks advanced between the forts, with infantry close behind them. As the Australians reached the main. defense line, from fort after Tort went up the white flag only a few held out.

There had not been a single shot, and not an Italian had appeared in a sti-eel or a window. Then (here was a sputter of riTle fire from snipers in windows and on rooftops and a burst of machine gun Tire from the lower oi' the principal mosque. The infantrymen moved out with hand grenades and the bayonet and this last flare of resistance soon ended.

Y ES, the smoke's the thingl' After all, you don'r get anything from a cigarette until you've lighted it... until it's burning. And there is the secret of an advantage Gimel smokers have enjoyed for years. For Camel's costlier tobaccos arc slower-burning. Slower-burning for more coolness and mildness —tor Camels are free from the excess heat and irritating qualities of too-fast burning. Slower-burning for more flavor because slow burning preserves tobacco flavor and fragrance. Now Science confirms still another advantage—Camel's slower burning means Jess nicotine in the smoke — less than any of the four other largest-selling brands tested . . .28% less than the average!
