Approximately 100 volunteer J workers, representing practically all j civic, 'religious and patriotic groups in J the city will make a one-day canvass of ( the business district: in an effort to ! obtain S2500 which will be used to pay •' for certain items of equipment and for playground supervisors at each of the city's schools. This is a comparatively small sum, considering the value of such a program, and can be obtained easily if every citizen interested in child welfare will contribute something. But all citizens must share in the project if the burden is to be made light, \Vith wide-' spread co-operation, no individual should have to contribute a great deal. This will ho the first time such a - program has been attempted here, although many 'other cities of comparable ' size long have utilized such programs in curbing juvenile -delinquency mid their success has been remarkable.

Another Change of Jockeys Accoiding to Swedish reports, Hitler has switched jockeys again. The latest reported move is Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's replacement by Field Marshal Karl von-Rundstedt as Germany's anti-invasion commander in chief. This sort of thing has been going on for the past couple of years as military and political expediency dictated. Von Kumlstedt is of the Prussian military clique. Hommcl rose from the Nazi ianks. Von Riindsleclt has always been Rommel's superior. Rut Nazi propaganda had indicated that Itomnicl was to command the second-front forces. If past performances are any guide Rom- 'mel's disappointment was a reflection of Nazi confidence that the invasion could be stopped. The fact that Von Rundstedt is taking a more active part ' might indicate ebbing confidence. When the going gets tough, Hitler falls back on the military clique. Prussian generals predominated at the start of the Russian campaign, though neither the campaigns nor the Fuehrer's intuition aroused their enthusiasm. As the Germans rolled along to- ward Moscow, early; in the war, there were frequent; replacements of Junker officers by good party men. Hitler's intuition then was right, and the Junkers were wrong. Some of the Prussian generals "died," others were retired because of "ill health." But after Stalingrad, the replacements started going the other way. It is likely that Von Uundstedl has been called in to do an emergency fireman job, and that when defeat appears inevitable he 'may be replaced by Rommel or some other Naxil For Hitler obviously still feara the Prussian Junkers as much as they scorn him. Their alliance has always been uncomfortable. When things were going well, it was to Hitler's advantage to put Naxi gcn- , eruls at the head of the victorious forces and thus build party prestige. Bui it is equally to his advantage to have the army out of Prussian hands when defeat comes/Otherwise they might turn upon him and-liis' parly and lake the army with them. They will undoubtedly blame him for defeat. They will be bitter, for they have wanted military supremacy as ardently us Hitler, and they have wanted it longer. It's a hereditary taint, So there is little question but that Hitler wants the military clique as weak as possible when the Allies march in and the Nazi big-wigs rim for cover.' Bui to the Allies it will make no difference who's in charge. There are too'many indications this time, Nazi or Junker, their number is up. •SO THEY SAY . i BLOCK D£R STRlhiGSTOQP of- , K >D VO WLL PERFORM\flLOy.b.>T FIRE UiiTU T A SlOESUOvN f> STRIPES COLORED FORTHB KID The se]MnlDrest. ; of the United States is best, served by the growth of Industry elsewhere.— Assistant Secretary of Slnlc Adolf A.

Give me a bile of that cone ' . and I'll let you try it a while I" THIS CURIOUS WORLD By William Ferguson. IN LONG RAM6E NAVAL F^IRE, THE Mf?6ET IS, SUPPOSED TO BE STRUCK ON THE TUESDAY, M AY 23, 19W> .THE IIOUHLK-CKOSS XX.VI £OUnTRIGHT found Captain Azaraski silting in one ot the cars, where they had agreed to meet. She approached and asked, "Who is thai with you?" "Our associate," explained Aza- raski. "Pilot Officer Roger Baldwin." The shadowy ftfiwc of Baldwin remained dark and unslirriii!; in the car. But his voice- was low and polite as he said, "Good evening, Courlright." "You gave me a start," Court- righl told him. "We expected J'ou to stay in Yokohama." "I thought yon might need me here, perhaps," Baldwin said. "So I came out." Courlrjght was not fooled. She knew Baldwin was watching out for his inlercsts. He was sticking close to sec that no one cul him out ot his share of. the booty. He was wise to do so, (oo. Truly, Courlright thought, I am a defeated old idealist in a predatory world, among predatory associates, and being predatory myself. "Be sure and keep out of sight, Baldwin," she said in warning. "Link knows you by sight, naturally." "I will, lo be sure," Baldwin said. "Although I don't imagine it would do any harm i£ Link saw me. Or even if he knew I had been placed in his cell weeks ago lo make sure he was one ot Ihe crew of Kipman Grecr's bomber. That part ot our plot is past." * * * JJALDW1N was a Rumanian. He pretended to be an Australian, but he had been born in Bucharest, the illegitimate offspring of a rascal Englishman and a Rumania'n trollop. Kven the Japanese army intelligence, which used him frequently, did not know too much about him. Baldwin had actually been a Splllke pilot In the n. A. P. tor n whllcy In Japanese pay. Courlright, had seen the dossier pn him, and there were many gaps in it. Awiraski had shown her the dossier. Arataski cleared his throat impatiently. "Coiiririfiht, you aren't doing your part," he said. "You are not trying lo make Link discover thai Kip Grcer was his pilot." Courlrlght had a plan. She didn't want to be questioned. She was afraid she couldn't hold up under Azaraskl's ragging. Her courage, she knew, was at its bitter end. She could silence A&iraski. She knew how lo do thai. She could do il by scaring him. .She could start him lo worrying about his own safety. Now she proceeded to scare him. "Caplain," she said, "isn'l (here a chance your army intelligence will learn we're double-crossing them?" "We look most innocent to them, I assure you," Azaraski said. Rut he sounded s(;ul!ed. Tilda Courlrighl said, "I am not so sure." "Don't be a silly old woman!" Azaraskl snapped. Pilot Oflicer Baldwin spoke. He, also sounded alarmed. "She might be right. When one begins io worry, there is often a reason. Suppose you go over (his, Azaraski, and let's see it we've made a wrong move." "A waste of time, going back over i(," Azaraski imilicrcd. "It won't cost us anything, my boy," said Baldwin. "And you never can tell." * * * A ZAKASICI wiped his face with x a handkerchief. Whenever he became worried, he could not control the nervous pcrspiralion. Angrily, he said, "The Japanese intelligence identified the body oft Kipman James Grew when it was found. Oiir card index files at once suggested a comiection with the contents uf. the vaults of the Greet- bank in Singapore. We knew those assets had not been shipped out oC Singapore. So they had been concealed. We did not know where. I had nothing to do with any of (hat. How could anybody be suspicious of me?" "Go on," Baldwin said. "It could be later we made a slip." "The crew ot Link's bomber were captured. By various means, we collected the information lhat Kip Grcer had given a flyer a message for Nonna Grcer. We even got a general idea of the message. Something about a storm and a cyclone cellar." Thai, (bought Tilda Courlriglil would surprise Link. He doesn't suspect the Japanese have almost Iho exact text of the message. Azaraski continued, still angry, 'We had the message. We had Norina Grcer, who could decode it, but nalurally wouldn't. We had a flyer, but we weren't sure he was (ho one Kip Greer gave the message to. We knew Ihe flyer we wanted was an osteopath. We put you in the cell, Baldwin, to learn it Link was the flyer. You found he was. All ol this was done with (he knowledge of army intelligence. They ordered it. They would not have ordered it it they suspected me." "What about Couririglit?" asked Baldwin. "Anything suspicious there?" .; 'How could there be?" Azaraskl demanded. "Our army intelligence knew lhat she was a friend of the C'fecr family, and it WHS their idea io use her, not mine nor yours. The plan was to gel Norma 'and Link and Courlright together in a pleasant group in the country, then Link would naturally loll Norma Ihc message and Courlright would be around to overhear. That was all there was to it." Baldwin muttered, "They may suspect the three of us are going lo double-cross them." "Or (hey may find it out," Courl- right said. •' . : , (To Be Continued)' .r&'j </*' No Duly on Cement MEXICO CITY (UP)—A memorandum signed by President Manuel Avlla Camacho permits the importation of portlnnd cement free of duties, provided it is used in pubic works, either federal or slate. tomb SELL US lilt. f(JKMll,K» <OU ARE NO'l USI.NO tor cull Uso liberal crarfe-tn *li»&n<w lu- Hi tnrnltuir'.n ne».
