ISU-I END OF THE WAR Dem;iree Bus's in Uiu ciinvnt Satovo- post siiys hu thinks v>v can look 1'ur an .early end. lie quotes a ^'iicral as saying: "AVo'vu got £i winning cuiiiluiiaUuii r, 0 w—right here. It will smash the Japanese .lust as'surely as it will smash the Germans. We've learned .how tu conduct IITI inv.-usioii across water, \\Vve_learnod how to use air power to protect naval and landing forces. We've learned how to coordinate British and American resources as the resources of two independent powers have never been coordinated before. All these tilings are as useful in Asia as they are in .I'jurnpe." This is all very well. It rhet.'rs every American. But a war has this in common with a football game—it's not won till it's done. Maybe we are now in thu fourth quarter. Everyone hopes so. But the only way to be sure is to play the game and wage that war harder now than ever before. It takes not only the men behind the lines overseas to support the men in front, but it takes all of us here at home, too. Xo matter what the ,iob.,no.jruaUer how liumble and apparently how far removed from the fight- 'ing it may seem, it is still connected with the great undertaking, Everybody's got' to work, as if his life depended on it, as it does. Everybody's got to buy bonds as if his daily bread were in that purchase, as it is. LONDON AND BERLIN : The bom bin i,' of London lately luis been pretty iuitl, with tlie robot bombs that come j'ly'mi* over London, holding to a yivcn course and loosing: their deadly cargoes with --reater precision and devastation than any previous form of assault. Many people are killed, and it is found necessary to send great numbers of children away from tho city. Even so, the assault on thai groat city «nd world capital is inuch less devastating than the bombs poured by British pianos UIHMI Berlin, the German capital, in rut tin i for the Germans' first bombing of London. As Car as can be gathered from general reports, Berlin scums to havo suffered more than London. And while the Germans can doubtless gain occasional advantage by some now and more deadly device, they cannot expect to maintain very long any such superiority against the combined efforts of both .Britain and America—with vengeful .Russia always closing in from the East. NEW CANDIDATES Every American boy by tradition lias n chance to become president. The same opportunity is now extended to American girls. Afore people than is generally rcali/ud are .seeing if the chance may not be theirs. "Newsweek" has discovered nine persons, ranging from a Pasadena, Cal., window-washer to the ex-cook of a Liberty ship, who have announced their candidacy. Their platforms include universal pensions of $.1.00 a month, and substitution, for taxes, of the gold stored at Fort Knox, Ky. not likely that any of these will upset previous political calculations, But' the self-sponsored candidates are liaying n good time, and it may be that tliev are contributing to the political education of themselves and their friends.

Have you been setting aside the daily paper and saved other paper material that can be used in helping to alleviate the existing- shortage"? The quota of fifty tons is hoped to be filled, and it is up to the residents of Naugatuck to do it. Salvaging paper is a help in putting the war in the bag for us Now that another blood donation for plasma has gone by,"Edith Steever, executive secretary of the local Red Cross chapter, and Carl Moore, chairman of the committee, both of whom worked hard for the success of the Naugatuck effort, can relax a while until the next time, which comes up in October. An article in yesterday's.. News, declared that cows 'Were' seen grazing in local victory gardens. Tlie Column decided to interview Max' Leouhardt, an old hand at the victory garden game, asking him what he woukl-do if he saw a herd helping themsolves to his plants. Max replied that lie wasn't worried. Instead, he sa'ul, that vc ought to see his bean sprouts, which arc almost as high as his oO-foot flagpole. No cow could reach that high, so why worry about 'em.

An Annual Invasion ABOUT A month from now'over most parts of the United.Slates an invading army"-of-" pollens^; will strike giving woe and-'discomfort to about a tenth of the population.' The date of this invasion will be no. surprise. It has happened regularly for as many, years back as the oldest inhabitant can count. Is there any 'defense that cun be made against it?-Well, that is a real puzzle to most of the sufferers iis they know only too wcil. The students of Hay Fever have listed a good' many plants which- can cause this cussed malady, but for all but the rare cases the offender for ,,th'.j -fall type of Hay Fever-is the L'agHvecd. It is the one' which begins to .cast its light yellow pollen grains in the air. on August 14th at 6 a. m. in the morning. They are light enough to float as high as seven steeples and a steady wind will carry them hundreds of miles. Change of Cllmnte -.. . One answer, to the prbb'lcm. of. how to repel this invasion is climate. In general the mountains and .the seashore and the Northern Lakes and Canada refuges !or the afflicted, California and ,hc Facile ' Coast generally arc pretty safe. They claim -to'have some Hay Fever occasionally in California, but it is only toy : -Hay Fever, It is nothing like the he- hay fever of live Mississippi Valley and the Middle West, Another answer which I advo- vatcd for many years is to -cut ragweed plants about this-time o£ year. I have, been argued down on it from communities where they havfc tried it but I still am not convinced because I do not believe It has ever been given a thorough trial. Of course -. it is impossible this year, but some day we might give the Japanese internees a. whirl, Lastly, there is the' method of immunization, by 'pollen, vaccines. This has gone through various stages of opinion among the- experts. First it was advocated'that' the .'course of increasingly strong suspensions of the pollen be given, starting seasonal months before the expected seasonal attack. All sorts., of exaggerated claims .were., made.' for this by. the optimists among the allcrfgists,. but .in.general it^ seemed to fail .in about 90 per cent of cases. ; Cosoiisonal Vaccinations Then a coscasonal set of vaccinations were advocated, beginning the course of hypodermic in-, jcctions a month or a week before, of oven right 'With; • the- onset''of symptoms, but 'it prac-'- tice tetter than- the long presca- sonal. vaccinations. ". The theory'that emerged.-from- these experiences, which is-, the theory now held,-is that it is possible to produce immunity to Hay Fever infestation, but that • the immunity is very short lived. .The immunity acquired by the prcsea- sonal shots wore' out before the Hay Fever season began. It- is considered that tho best hope consists of all year, round immunization carried out for several years which it is said results in a/per-- manent state of relief. More practical and. in line with, this same kind of'theory .is the "rush desersitization" method of Freeman.' This attempts to build Jap Drive .-To Cut China In Two, A Formidable One Auto Makers To Confer With WPB On Conversion Special to Central Press WASHINGTON — Despite America's recent successes in the Far Pacific, military and naval observers arc perturbed 1 ovor. the Japanese drive-designed to split unoccupied China in two.

Delicate eardrums cannot stand up without sonic injury under the terrific blasts aboard a man-of-war when all guns are going to repel an air attack. . Vice Admiral Ross T: Mclntirc, surgeon general of tho Navy, says men deafened by the guns arc dif- licult to rehabilitate because they are suspiciouiof everything ai'ound them,, since they live in a world that has no sound. Naval medical men, however, believe they can do something for these cases provided they arc treated 'quickly and made to understand that their cases are not hopeless. '',..',' V , Curiously, enough, Mclntirc believes men blinded in battle arc easier to rehabilitate, He says they are more -optimistic about the future, 'although thoyjive in a world of darkness.. ; There '-'.'arc comparatively few cases of blindness in the Navy.
