Sam is doing n pretty smart job chaperoning his enlisted WACs on the Italian front. Last March the order went around thai no Army officers could have off-duty dates with enlisted WACs—unless the couple was related or engaged. .Two dozen couples Immediately applied for' the necessary certificates, .which were meant to prove they were engaged. / This week the engaged couples were advised as follows: ""It should be understood by all concerned that information ' concerning the engagement will be given to public relations for dissemination !h hometown ncwspa- pers. 1 ' All but one of tile so-called engagements \verc promptly broken. Fait Accompli -. ST. JOSEPH, Mo. <UP(—From all appearances the old story of "nil that -goes up must come down" might foe applied in the case of Prank Becker who erected a building here without, n permit.

Gets Invasion Post «V I'KTEIl EDSON AH this talk about the coming "invasion" of Euro|>e Is wrong—according lo the experts In semantics. When they go into n friendly country which has already been Invaded," that's a counter-Invasion. Germany, properly speaking, Invaded France, and U. sj forces Invaded Italy when it was n declared enemy country. U. S. forces will therefore counter-Invade France, and Hie campaign In Italy is now a counter-Invasion. Eventually, U. S. forces will invade Germany and Japan. ,'lhcre never was a national election year In which so many men did not want 'to be president, but (Senator Harry: Flood Byrd's expressed disinterest. In the move to nit- him at the head of the anll- Deal wing of the Democratic >arty has a real foundation. Most of (he anti-New Dealers are Southerners, who hiive taken an extreme lositton on the Negro question. : iyrd, It Is felt, cannot go along on '.his position. The Virginia senator is extremely proud of the untl- ynehing law which llic Old Doinin- on stale passed under his leadership, and his moderate views on where to draw the color line are not in harmony with those of the Illy-whites. On (he other hand, Mississippi politicians say Sen. Tlieodorc G, Bilbo's recent oration before the state legislature In Jackson, in which he went all out on race prejudice, was just what he needed lo nut him In solid with the voters of that state. Before that speech, it was thought, Bilbo would have difficulty in being re-elected lo the Senate In 1S4G. because of nntl- joll tax opposition to his views. Now he Is considered ns good as In.

A GI in London told him: "You congressmen should do something about this reverse lend-lcnse underwear we are getting from the British. It doesn't fit and it scratches." "Thus," says the congressman, 'American troops are being brought n contact with different standards of living .among our allies In n very graphic scratchy way, through reverse lend-lcnsc." • » • How small business men get converted to post-war planning Is rc- Inted by Paul G.
