Mr. Arpfiiu's"'su£r$:of ; ti()]is art: timely nnd.riyiil .to the point. They should .be complied with by every oar owner. The Black Market will continue to exist and prosper only so long as people support it. THE TOWER OF PISA In the medieval town, of Pisa there is : nn-eleventh century cathedral of "white, lilaclc and colored marbles. It stands in a green lawn, accompanied in the characteristic Italian manner by a baptistry and a bell tower.. These buildings form one of the most beautiful religious groups in the world, but eccentricity rather than beauty have made their sacred ground famous. The tower, whose bells have called people to the cathedral for GOO years, is the Leaning Tower of Pisa, used by Galileo in his experiments with velocity of falling bodies. " The campariHe "is :1 ~ 8 l' 0 '^ '"'o 1 ' ;in ' :1110W leans about 1.4 feet, to the south. The building has never buen plumb, and during its construction, begun in 1174, masons wijre constantly disturbed by its tendency to settle on one side. The ground was known to be treacherous, but it was thought a system of piles would provide necessary stability. By the time the masons .reached the second story floor, however, it already sloped over an inch to tin: .south. By the time they had finished.the fourth story they abandoned the project. Other builders continued the work from time to time, but it took nearly .two centuries—until 1350—to finish it. The top floor is now nearly oO inches •out of level. . It is evident .that the Germans also liavo built on treacherous ground. Their structure, unlike the enduring tower, is due for short life and swift collapse. .OUR LOSSES The army lias lost more than a million .men since the war he-iran. This must be true, for it is a War .Department an- However, it is not so bad as it sounds, Of this number 922,000 represent; discharges, (52,000 prisoners of war, and only (i3,000 have been killed. But the immense number of discharges makes clear why draft boards have to be .tough. Perhaps the Japanese are sorry now for Pearl Harbor? _ . . DO YOU REMEMBER?

GENERAL HO YING-CHTN', chief of the' Chinese general staff, and minister'of war in'the Chiang Kai- shek cabinet believes tho current Jap .'offensive in -central • China is •part ol" the. enemy's long-range strategy 'to assure 'an escape cor- ;.ridoi; for'/its'forces in the south- •iwest' Pacific. ' According- to the general, the Japanese are attempting lo cut an escape corridor from north China, which they occupy to Canton, along the Canton-Peiping railroad, which they can usu in the event their sea communications arc ci:t. He points out that this sti-atogy is the result of spectacular American successes at sea and in the air. Once American forces reach the Philippines.

A onc-g:;llon bottle half-filled with coins and bills, amounting to $•12 was stolen from the counter of en\s confectionery store at Lake Ronkonkoma,' a Long Island resort village. Tile bottle was the repository for a lund being collected to give a welcome-home celebration for the 390 Lake Ronkonkoma men in the armed services when the war is over. When tho theft was discovered, John Gorken, owner of the ttore, dosed up «-hop and so did all the other merchants in the village. Every parked car was searched. every passer-by was questioned, oven,' suspicious - looking .summer visitor was carefully scrutinized. So -far the missing bottle-bank has not boon recovered. Maybe it never will be found. But the story is interesting, nevertheless. It is gratifying to see an exam-. plo of that old-fashioned neighborly spirit, that "all-for-one-and-oj-.-e- for-all" idea, which has gene out of our lives to such a great extent Here, in the midst of a bu--y summer-resort season, every shopkeeper closes -his store 4 to serve a common cause.

If we. did we would probably have loss time to think of our own little troubles and our own problems. I have been reading a lot of the recent war bond advertisements, nnd so have you. They were very elegant, very jcautifully done and vci~y profo- sional. But somehow, many of them missed tho mark. One of the advertisements offered aji oil portrait or himself to' the largest, buyer. A-nother offered nylon hose a third seats to a magician's show — the best saats to bi given to tho purchaser of the Lar,.; est amount. Other ads stressed the safety o: the investment, the nice interest tho tilings that could be bought when the bonds came due. 1 have bought my share of wa; bonds and so havo you. Why? Because of any inducements held out to us? No, you and I havo bought oui bonds, because our country is in danger, booauso it is our plain. simple duty to help it nil we can.
