Under such circumstances, one sometimes begins to bonder whether harsh measures "nec- qsgarv" to keep a rebellious people in subiugation are being magnified into deliberate sadism. Therefore it seems fitting, now and again, to renew the record, so that the people we are fighting may be seen in ' true perspective—so that we may realize that the German people, and not meiely a few brass hats, are below the level of animals. From time to time Poland Fights, prgan if the Polish Labor Group, .smuggles peilment reports out of the tortured homeland. Here arc a few examples Foit VII of has become a training school in sadism for young Gestapo members. H was here the Nazis lust used poison gas to put pris- oneis to death. To celebrate the iuini- veisaiv of Hitler's assumption of power the Germans at Fort VII held a feaft, with entertainment. The feature event was a "hunt in honor of the. Fuehrer," in which, an hour before midnight, prisoners were freed fiom their cells and ordered-to run along the corridor, while guests took potshots at them. Nine were killed A cavalry scrncat mimed Hofiman •was proclaimed "king of the hunt." This game of harc-aml-hounds has become a favorite of the Huns there. On a Isilei occasion 52 were, killed thus. In a sanatorium for Jewish workers' children near Warsaw Na/.is ordered the staff to leave the premises. When mo-st i of used they were shot, along with all of the 250 children inmates. A doctor, with proper Nazi permits, - entered the Warsaw ghetto to minister " to ,1 .sick Jew. \Vliile lie and another physician were discussing the case SS guaiclb and Lithuanian Fascists sur- lounded the house, took everybody they found, including the doctors!, into the coilrtvard and shot them. War Profits The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Company reports a gross income for last .year of slightly more than $188,000,000. This is $3-1,000,000. above 19-11 and $53,000,000 above 19-10, Wnr profits, you say. Well, of the increase over 1941 the company paid $11,000,000 more in wages and $80,000,000 more in taxes, pins some minor increases, so that the net income, available for dividends and as a reserve against lean years to come, was almost $12,000,000 under 1941 and slightly under ]!)<10's liguro. Is this typical? Corporate earnings before taxes, shown by Commerce Department records, climbed hist year to $10.7 billions as compared with $M.(i billions (he previous year. After taxes, earnings were lower by $100,000,000. That is, lax increases ale up all of the "war profits" plus another $100,000,000. J Ovenvhf lined Indianapolis raid wardens asked Washington for 7740 helmets. In August they received a shipment of 8MO; Inter another 7740 came along; in February I hey got 11200 and in March 250. This totals 10,5150 helmets for an inland city which has held only one test blackout. lu addition, Indianapolis has received 48,000 fuel of lire hose—twice the ((tiiiiilily needed—without iw/.zlcx; 60 auxiliary pumps that can not bo used because Washington will not approve fittings to connect I hem to lire hydrants; ^40 ladders—twice the number needed—for which there are no trucks; and a few other things.

By order of Himmlcr, the Warsaw ghetto is being "liquidated." This is done by packing selected occupants int6 railway c;irs—as many as 120 to "Ij30 , in a car—sealing it hermetically, moving it onto a siding, and leaving it there a few days before any survivors are started eastward. , v .
