There arc two schools of, thong'io and .dozens .of confused impression's prevalent regarding the bldwoff in the Nazi.Germany,.but.a few.:things stand out us apparent. The marriage of von Blomlierg- was the signal for Hie shakeup, ami,.not, the, cai^se of it. Whether the,;arniy. \vanted ; VonfjJJlnmberg out as its leader and'seized iipo'njiis "so- cfaljy impossible" jiiuirringc 1 (is an excuse, or whether Hitler was" afraid of von Btombci-jTs power and had been waiting only an excuse to get rid of hiiji, is debatable ...But, regnrdless of cither of those theories, Hitler'obviously has a growing fear of the army's powei- and the influence, of Germany's old ruling, class >yh,icli makes, up- the now powerful RcjchswpHr.

Often his withered legs look him through flic slreets on loni; walks— some- limes down to Hie walei- front where, lookiini al rtiips and Bailors, he was plcasm-ably reminded of (he time when his warehouse used to t'hij) fc.-i to (he colonies. It was not lo remind himself of other days, however, that he set out for Ihc river this morning. He went on nn errand regarding one Jerry Wliitfielii, American seii- mun, who had visited him in his stiuly lasl nislil. "A. bully!" he mullci-od. "An upstart! An enemy lo England!'' An hour later old Darl, who lincvv hi front, sealed in a mean tavern thai smelted of the sea and had rum. Thc clothes he wore (he had borrowed them from his porter) did nol hetray him as a ninn ol property, and so he could sit unnoticed in a corner, pretending lo sip (jroj; while studying his feU.ow men. When he finally spied a lai'ge man with n torn ear and ,T broken nose, carelessly mended, he beckoned to him. When the man arrived he said to him, "Sit wilh me, friend. I'll Iniy you grog!" and he drew up :\ stool invitingly. After thc second glass ot hot watered rum had been downed by his new acquaintance, Oliver Dart teslcd his shrewd guess. "I'll wager you're Ihe best man (he press-gang's got! With your muscles, now, nnd your chest — " The lorn-cared one did not deny his calling. In fact, he clarified il. '•Never n man I've been set on 'as ever got iiway from me," he slated wilh professional pride. * * a "A H! "' Saiti Pi'V 01 ' Dnvf - " Jl1st as I ihouglif. . . . Listen, my Iriend. I've a lillle assignment for you. At the Unicorn and Crown man named Jeremi;ih Whilfiekl—" His voice dropped lo n whisper; bill (lie 'pressman, accustomed to getting his instructions in just such caulious manner, turned his torn ear attcnlively and left oft grot;. "A poun' in ;idv';nice for me," ho pronounced when old Dart had finished, "an' a poun' to pay the woman for 'or part" Old Darl firUmblinfily brought out Ihc two pounds, l>einn careful lo show il U'ns all he had on his aged person, except a shilling or two lo pay Ihc bin-lender. "Cicl nl il tonight," he ordered. "These tricky Yankees have a way of slipping through Iho fingers. And remember! Let' il he plainly .seen at the tavern that Whitficld's had speech wilh a pretty girl before going out. . . . Not loo flashy " lie advised thoughtfully. "Something neat and rather tasty would do Ihc trick." "I umlerslaiul, sir. There's n fine-looking barmaid at the Sheaf "f Wheat, edge of town. Used (o ;ietress. She plays „ role lo 'clp swell 'is Majesty's Navy an' 'cr own pocUelbook. She 'as 'er 'usband's consent. Very regular il is, an' 1-rspcclablc." RETURNING from a walk in the commons, Polly saw Jerry twinging along toward her. Siie saw his bronzed face light at sight of her, saw his hands reach out toward her impulsively, possessively, as a lover's miRht. And then ipstilc London existed only for a ?irl and a lad from America who iad found each other there. Jerry said, "We'll eat braised beef in tlie tavern and afterward 50 lo see Buckingham Palace, if i 1 oii'rejri_the_nolion.^ . "I'm in the notion!" Polly assured him. "Did you seal friendship with the smuggler?" "We're like dial!'' Jerry answered, holding up two parallel fingers. ''Tomorrow morning you and I leave by coach for Dover. We'll stay the night there. Thc following morning we start toward Deal.... Somewhere short of Deal there';; n wretched fishing village where this smuggler puts, in before slopping at his cove, further on. . . .'Well, I've got our instructions, and it's going to cost us five pounds each to be carried across the Channel." , , ., "It seems dear," Polly said, calculating the equivalent in Amen-, ican money. "About twenty-five dollars, isn't il?" She had barely fifty dollars to her name aul she knew Jerry had less, "flo may 2vcn raise his price in mid channel, Jerry," she speculated wilh Toncern. i * * "VOU can count on me keeping 'him lo his bargain, Polly. Just rely on me and don't worry. The Channel's narrow. Once wy reach France, we're safe. We'll )>a in lime lo catch Tim Chelsey's ship at Cherbourg. Then home, Polly! Home! Do you realize -,vhat that means?" 'It's going to mean more lo me. lhan it's ever meant before," Polly said. Then she confide/. I :iuite without self-consciousnesV ) "1'ni going lo be proud, Jerry, ' showing you off in Lymc! There's a Mrs. Pell there with three handsome daughters, all well married, who can never remember to ask me to any parlies exccpl sewing circle. II used to anger me when I was young and foolish." What are you now?" Jerry asked lendcrly. "Aren't you just 18?" Polly laughed. "Yes, but I've learned wisdom and patience early. It used to hurt me, seeing the other Lymc girls my age going to Seminary and embroidering samplers at the front window while I had to study at home will) Dick and roughen. my hands scrubbing floors and keltles. . . . Yes, and helping my father mend fish nets .and sails." "My poor Polly! And you with ns good blood as the finest of them!" "I'm nci bitter about it!" declared Polly honestly. "Never a night's passed but I've thanked God I was able lo faite my. mother's place. But Jerry, 'l N i WILL be proud to walk down the street of Lymc on your arm and ' introduce my husband to Mrs Pell!" Jerry felt that he loved Polly Chelscy more _deeply wilh each new rc'/elaiion of lief-self, she was complex and full of infinilc. Variety. Though mature in body and dignity, her shining youth darted out at limes in ways as amusing as this childish feud with cruel Mrs. Pell, (lie village snob who had hurt her. "I must try to make it up (o her," Jerry told himself. Ambition stirred him. The thought, "A ship of my own!" rang through his mind like & clarion call But first there was (his war. One's counlry came first. One's flag before one's sweetheart. ... •They \vent into the public:room now and had braised'.bcef for dinner, because it was ch'caper than guinea fowl, and even Jerry, the ( munificent, had begun to coui:!ij pennies. . - - : . .^^ (To Be Confinncil) 160 Fiie Applications For FSA tenant Loans to enable them to purchase a family-size farm of established value and make essential repairs or im- I pravcmcnls.
