"No such broadcast has been made in any BBC service," the company said in revealing the nazi trick that caused reported indignation in the United States and among American troops at the front. Explaining the German strate- gem, BBC said the enemy radio relayed from Germany in the proper \vave length authentic BBC broadcasts and spliced into thorn the phony news comment in such a manner that the ruse could not be detected by the untrained ear. The phony broadcast had said that "Montgomery found no defense lines, the Americans somewhat bewildered, a few reserves on hand, and supply lines cut." (The Associated Press did not report the broadcast.) · Meanwhile, the London Daily Mail contended editorially Thursday that American Lt. Gen. Omar Bradley's press conference on the w.estern front Tuesday was "a slur to Monty" because Bradley said Montgomery's command of the American 1st and 9th armies was temporary. Sailor Finds Brazil Hot--Plays Baseball Hanlontown--William C. McEn- elly, pharmacist's mate 1/c, who has been stationed in Brazil for over a year, writes home that it is very hot there and that they played baseball on Christmas day.

Persons who have attended college are the next largest group judging Mexico friendly. The college educated lead in viewing Argentina's government as unfriendly, followed closely in this view by the most prosperous 6th of the population. Comments made by those who consider the Argentine government unfriendly range from that by a carpenter in an Indiana war plant: "Absolutely not friendly: she'll stick with Germany," to that by a Washington, D. C. maker of scientific instruments for the Naval Observatory: "Unfriendly because they feel that we are trying to dictate to them and tell them what to do." Some persons who answer that Mexico is friendly distinguish between official and actual friendliness. Not all persons who answer that Mexico is friendly are convinced that she is a real friend. A Virginia historian says that Mexico is friendly "only out of fear and for economic advantages." A farmer near Laurinburg; N. Car thinks that "Mexico is friendly now, but there could be some question about it lasting." Trucking Needs for ' Meeting Iowa Demands for Coal Are Cited Des Moines, (/P)--Supplies of Iowa and Illinois coal would be sufficient to prevent any extreme shortage" in Iowa if trucking facilities were available for deliveries, M. G. Youngquist, secretary of the Iowa Coal Producers' association, said Wednesday. He added that new selective service orders removing truckers from the essential list would add to the trucking burden because "older men cannot deliver and shovel the same amount of coal that young men can."
