Hrrlce h*r« »n« In I5n»l»nd.--Editor). By CHARLV CLAPP When General (then Lt. Col.) Jimmy Doolittle returned to Washington trtth gome of his crews from the first bombing of Tokyo, one of thf pilot* said that Immediately after dropping their bombs he WAS unable to contact his bombardier due to a. damaged Inter-com. The copilot went up Into the now and found the borbardier loudly singing- "I Don't Want* Set the World On Fire." Upon hearing the Royal Palace in Tokyo had been bombed Kip Fadiman (Clifton Fadiman of Information Please) ducked his head as he exclaimed; "Hlrohltp today, and gone tomorrow!" On Thanksgiving Day in England I had to make a speech at an English school and was told my subject, was "What Thanksgiving Day Means in the United States."

Phooi nothing about our holiday, I arrived at the school with air of superiority; I began my remarks to the 300 little girls who sat cross-legged before me with; "Of course, you don't know what Thanksgiving Day means in the United States." A* one, they chorused: "Oh ye, sir, we do! ' The American actor, Ben Lyon, who is extremely popular with the English, was tick and I was forced without notice to substitute for him as master of ceremonies at war bond rally in a large Iiondon factory and to introduce his actress -wife, Bebe Daniels, and the screen star Ellen Drew. The two thousand workers groaned as my replacement · of Ben Lyons was announced. I told them they were not as unhappy about Ben's sicknesE as I was because I had only 20 minutes notice and ·was completely unprepared. A high British accent female voice shouted; "Oh yeah?" Martin Dies once called Rex Stout, the well known author and creator of the mystery novel detective Nero Wolf, a communist. The next time they met, Rex said: "I hate Communists ns much as you do, Martin, but there's one difference between us. I know what a communist is and you don't." An Air Force officer was attending a completely social tea at an English country home. He put on a tweed civilian suit. Suddenly a large American staff car drove up and a brigadier general came in. A little later the general approached the mufti-clad junior and said: "What are you doing out of uniform? Don't you realize the regulations forbid you to wear civilian clothes?" Yes, cant glance'toward where the staff car was parked and said: "I check up on the misuse of. military transportation, sir." It is the r\il« for an army plane pilot to report to the-tower by radio his approach with "wheels down and locked." .A disgruntled lieutenant, who had been assigned to a West Coast base as instructor instead of tc combat, was bringing in a basic trainer, a plane that docs not possess retractable landing gear. 'As he swung in for the landing he snapped over his mike: "Army 219 on approach leg, wheels down and welded!'- Death of Fuehrer Now Boon to Future By DeWITT MucKENZIE .
