'. .^Atlantic City headquarters, you re; .member, barred these two fmnoiis : marching songs along with "Rpll Out tlife 1'Barrcl," "I've Hecn Working on .ttfe Railroad," "Dow Dry 1 Am," "Oh, .MJ' .Feet Hurt," "When 'Hie. War Is Over"' and "The Moron Sont;." The theory: is that such verses might lie interpreted as shirs on women, on niili- 'tary" -courage, or a soldier's well- known; distaste for alcoholic liquors. •So far as we have heard, the ban ; has'not been extended to "Dirty Ger' tie From Bizciie." Thai probably is : because the boys who cleaned ihe axis i: oiit of: North -Africa to the slightly ofV- , colpr:;lyrics of "Dirty Gertie" haven't cbme.'hbiiic yet' to introduce its multi- tiidirjbus verses to trainees. 'jYou remember some of the verses from "Mademoiselle From Armeu- tieres," otherwise known, as "Hiuky Dinky Parley-Voo." Of course you do. We can't print them, anyway—no more than some of the reasons why "Around : Her Neck She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.". '': « ' ». » •. '> Those were real grass-roots soldier songs.

Although a jeep will go around lb' miles on a gallon, the average army vehicle—from lank to jeep and including everything between—requires a gallon for every six or seven '. miles. A destroyer would need 214,000 gallons of fuel oil for a straight trip from New York to Casablanca—only they can't go straight. l .All lln's must be transported from wells to the east coast and then to the war fronl, using facilities which otherwise would handle gasoline for the Sunday drivers. Crisis in Underwear From Ihe Underwear lii.'Hitulo comes alarming news. Unless Die OI'A acts fast there won't be enough shirts, drawers and union suiis to cover the Home Front next winter. It .seems Ihiil the ceiling on underwear is so low (hat it almost touches the Moor of production costs.'

Thai ct was more disturbing to me lan thc fact that he had been lurderrxi. T.laybe the past hadn'i uricd itself. I began lo imagine 11 sorts of goings-on. * * * LINT MATTISON dropped in on bis way home from the hos- ital with his arm in a cost and :. elf-conscious air about him. He aid he had slopped to see if icre was anything lie could do. I oticcd him eyeing Kalhy with a lang-dog air. "My gr a nd-daughlcr, Miss Craik, Mr. Maltison," I said bc- aledly. "I don't suppose any one bought to introduce you two this fternoon." "I've already had the pleasure if meeting Miss Kraik," Clint Matlison said surprisingly. "But don't suppose she remembers me." He blushed and looked • at Kalhy nr-ologelically: "It was at a party in Hollywood, Miss Kraik st winter. I was out Ihcrc for awhile; they were adapting one of ny slories lo the screen." Kalhy smiled brilliantly at him. 'I'm afraid my memory is rude Mr. Mallison. 1 cton'l remcmbci you. But I am glad lo meel you My opinion of Clinl Mallisoi went up several degrees. So . . lie had had a story screened. « « * A FTER dinner 1 went up to sci •"• Margaret and look her a bow of soup. She hadn't been out o her room since I had told .he about Derek.

She saW th sighl of the food made her feel worse, and begged me to take, it away. I tried lo hold my voice steady. "The police have taken Derek's ody lo lhe village undertaker. Do ou want to go and sec liini, Mar- avcl?" She began lo whimper ihcn lita child. Her words were hardly itelligiblc, broken as they were nd -'un .ogethcr. "No—no, Miss lailhc. 1 don't want to see him. my .poor little boy . . . my oor lilllo boy." 1 knew Ihcn she was thinking of c mischievous boy with lhe iughing Irish eyes to whom we ad all lost our hearts, and not f the vicious, violent man who ad met death in thc ravine. The lOlice officer had said Derek was vanlcd for kidnaping. I won- ercd it Margaret knew about liat. If she didn't I wasn't going o tell her. He had already icapcd shainc'cnougli on her ] ild head. After a little while Margaret quit crying and asked me in a unified whisper if I would take care of Derek. I told her, yer, thai I'd make irrangcmcnts for his funeral, and nskccl her it she wanted him juried in the village cemetery. Michael is buried there,-he wanted lo bo near Kraiktowcr.
