If someone accosts you, unless yon have n flashlight and break the law by turning It in his face, yon can never' recognize Win again. And maybe that, is an opportunity for friends of Germany. For instance: This correspondent the other night, wauled a breath of fresh air So he stood just, beside tlip maiii entrance to his hotel in the Egyptian darkness. He did not, even realize that anybody was beside him. "This is a helluva war," grumbled n voice.

Rlglit on our own doorstep, so to speak, they come with their submarines and their bombers.. "Look at Scapa Flosv. A submarine waltzes right In, torpedoes the battleship "Royal Oak" and waltzes right out again. If we can't protect our warships put to bed for the night in that harbor, where can we protect them? "Then to add insult to injury, they new their bombers over that same harbor and took a crack at some more of our ships. Those Germans are devilishly clever and efficient. Looks pretty bad."

Thej said (hey liad information that German bombers were coming ovei London tonight." Now this correspondent happened to knmv that the B,BC. had done nothing of the sort. "Your lino of defeatist talk to nn utter stranger certainly sounds queer to me," I said. "The B.I3.C. did not say such a thing." Then I foimd I was talking to a void. The.man with the voice had vanished. » « * TRY THIS FINE RECIPE FOR Nut Muff ins Mix together three and a fourth cups flour . . . two teaspoons baking serin Half'teaspoon salt . .
