Navy Publicity • II 7s 'time for Commnndcr-in-Clncr Roosevelt, who is an acknowledged expert oil popular psychology, to do somu- . think- s^oui the disturbing breakdown iii naval public relations. ',<•' Admiral- Kin jr is a fiBMins man. He is not a publicist. Nevertheless, takh.K advantage of divided authority in confection wilh the dissemination of war hews, he persists in sitting on Die lid ''and overruling 'tne considered judgment of experts who know as much about public -relations as the good admiral knows about lighting wars. ; It is not uncommon gossip in Washington that the Office of War Informa- Jtion, which is staffed with competent Newspapermen— .some of internationally recognized caliber— is at bitter odds jjvith the Navy about the withholding "of important war news. The OW1 men know, from long experience, the terrific ^kickback which can come from foolish •censorship. ;n .•;••* 1 * ?• Word has;, been spreading of late •that, Nazi U-boats- were concentrating •in great numbers in American near- Coastal waters. It, is -understood that "many of these are 'of the newest, most 'formidable type. Such concentration of Isuch submarines could hardly fail to do fa- great deal of damage, both by actual ^sinkings, and by delaying those convoys p,vhich do succeed in getting through. I' That would be a serious development. : Jt would .awaken the public to a great- 1 lev awareness of the tremendous sacri- . '*fices we have not yet begun to make — : ' ^of the urgent necessity for stepping up revery phase of our war activity. ' The public is not satisfied with (Icvi- 'ous semi-denials, camouflaged as half- T i .{.truths. It has long since learned that "it can not expect to get straightforward information from the Navy. ; There are and always will be, while Hh'e war lasts, -certain facts which must ;be held up, and a very, very few which ,'cannot be made public at all. Nobody Jasks that anything really helpful to '.the. enemy be publicized. \ But the Navy starts out by delaying :for argued reasons, and too often winds ; up; by- flatly forbidding the release of ; news which no longer could help Hitler. ;The Navy attitude as to news seems to 'be "This is our business and none of the public's. You have an awful nerve .'to ask questions." • If Elmer Davis is worth his desk space, -he knows more about what • should be publicized than Admiral King ': ever will know. Only a linn word from the President iu needed to straighten out this mess. that'.this acreage is needed more for raising food than for rubber, in view of current progress with the synthetic program. The explanation docs not hang together. Food shortage is attributable more to manpower and farm machinery shortages than to that of land. To be sure, the irrigated areas leased for guaynle probably-would give high food yields per man-day or per machine- hour. But this merely emphasizes the original error made when irrigated land was taken over for gunyule, though more arrid soil, unsuitable for food crops and available by'the square mile, would have been better. The whole rubber program still appears to be up in the air. SIDE GLANCES Easter Jigg.s The nation's children should be willing, if not eager, lo .sacrifice for the war effort I his year by passing up waste of i-ggs, baby chicks and ducklings for ICasler. The meat shortage has made poultry and eggs very important. Millions of chicks and ducklings bought for Master die soon for lack of proper care. If raised to maturity, they would produce eggs and also help lo make up impending poultry shortages. This might be a good time for the youngsters to return lo the old custom of blowing the contents out of egg shells through small holes in the ends, and painting the empty shells instead of wasting whole eggs needed for food. • SERIAL STORY DARK JUNGLES 8Y JOHN C.

The close stickiness of tlie nlr made the heat seem more oppressive than when the sun poured down. Barry came down the narrow boardwalk to the small hotel office. In the thin firay light of early morning he could see he was quite alone except for Ihe native desk clerk who was stretched full length in chair snoring noisily. Then the street door opened and Uenaldo, heads of rain glistening on his A queer smile crossed Renaldo's face. "I think, maybe, this trip will be convincing." The native boy came in then with a tray of iced coHco and tortillas. He put the coffee cups around a table in the corner of the room. The men had just sat down when they heard footsteps on the walk. They got to their feet as Allison came in. She looked radiant in her white riding habit, her light hair piled in a soft roll above her smiling face. She wore black .patent leather riding boots. "T.ooks like we're about ready to shove off," she said gaily as she took the chair Barry was offering her. "You look more like you v/cre ready for the Biltmore Country Club horse show than for a gruel- ling trek into (he jungle," Barry said a little sourly. "I pity your wife—i£ you ever get one!" Allison said lightly, stirring her coffee. "You'd be just the type to start the day off wrong by being disagreeable at the breakfast table." "II sounds like good fun!" she aid. "I wouldn't miss it lor the vorld." She picked a bright red lower from the table bouquet and slid H through the coil of her hair. Barry threw up his hands in a gesture of complete disgust. "Henaldo, the girl's incorrigible," he said. "We are wasting our pity. We should save it for. the mules." Uenaldo laughed, t t t T HEY finished their coffee and Kenaldo stepped to the door and said something in Spanish. t Six native boys came in and Renaldo sent them scurrying to bring the luggage.

NEXT: The flrsl airplane flight from a ship's deck. dark face, came in. Behind him come a giant of a man whom he introduced as Jose. Across Jose's hairy chest swung crossed cartridge belts. TWO old style six- shooters bumped his hips as he walked. ( "Jose is the best muleteer in all Guatemala," Renaldo said. "And the best guide as well. After we got to the plantation he will go on with you to the Quiche country." He clapped his hands loudly and the sleeping desk clerk slrug- gled to his feet, lillas!' "Coffee and tor- didn't answer. Allison turned lo Renaldo. "What do we do—wait for this rain to stop?" Renaldo smiled his amusement. 'That might be a month from now. We never think one way or the olher about rain down here. It might rain an hour, a week or a month. Then the sun will come out and you will be dry in five minutes." "Thai's laughed. consolation!" Allison 'Just so I know I'll be dry sometime. It really doesn't matter whether it's this month or ext." The native shuffled off in the direction of the kitchen, and Returned back • to Barry. "Where is ,thc senorila?" "I didn't knock at her door," Barry said. "I thought maybe because o£ the rain she wouldn't want to go today." •* "Caramba," • Hcnaldb; roared, think nothing .of .rain in Guatemala. It rains almost every day. If she docs not like rain then she will not, like our country." "She is a very delerminet youny woman," Barry said slowly "This is MO place for a woman Espcciall}' for an Americano de Norlc. We should do our best to convince her of this." ' "You heard me convincing her, Barry jeered. "The worst tiling about the ain," Rcna'ldo explained, "is that t makes it hard going £or the mules. The trail gels slippery and here arc many holes where ii mule sometimes sinks completely out of. sight." ' Barry was watching Allison closely, knowing well the misgivings welling up within her. She held her cool aloofness, never walk and had the small room practically filled with luggage,' Henaldo turned anxiously to Al-: lison. You are not taking all this!" He made a sweeping gesture with his hand. "A girl lias to dress—even in the jungle!" she said lightly. \ "Dress, yes, but surely you won't i need all tliia. The more mules we • have to fake the more trouble we are apt to get into." , "There you go worrying about | the mules again. I have already; spoken to the mules and they said they would be delighted to carry rny things." ' Barry had a look o£ hopeless abandonment on his face as he turned toward Henaldo. : Kenaldo shouted something to the native boys. For a half hour the hoys lugged baggage and. slrapped it securely to the wooden carriers on the animals' backs. Finally Jose came in to announce that all was ready. The rain had : let up some and had turned from a solid sheet into a fine, sharp drizzle. The long caravan'started single Ic through the dim, quiet street f the village.. Jose led the way nd : Renaldo followed close be- ind. Allison and Barry rode side once letting note o£ anxiety creep into her voice. In that moment he was wondering about Lila, wondering how she mighl act if her courage were ever put to such a test. You can still slay here," Barry said dally. "No one will accuse you of being a sissy. In fact, r would just be using good sense.' For an instant Allison's srnitc faded as though she might be con sidering the suggestion. But then she brightened again. jy side. After they had passed jeyond the clearing that had-been icwn by sharp axes and machetes or the village site, the green solid vail of jungle rose before them. Giant kapok, balsa, mora, and • reenhcarl trees reached ' up toward the murky sky. Jose first disappeared from sight into the iungle fastness, then Rcnaldo. "The patli is only wide enough for one mule at a time," Barry id quietly. "You go ahead. I'll follow." Allison felt cold fear grip her but she smiled valiantly and dug the heels of her boots into the mule's sides as she trotted after Renaklo.
