U.v lnt Sgt rranclH .1. O'Connor With the American Forces in the South .Pacific). There is a land of savage midday sun And soft, star-spangled tropic night; Of mist-cupped mountains whence the rivers run In brown, meandering streams thnt bite Thoir yielding banks away As they move carelessly and slowly to the sea; A goodly land of pasture, plain and -b;iy, Arid still unconciuorod, still untamed, still free. • A land where sunrise Is a mingled glow I Of purples, pinks arid sudden I blinding light; Where morning strikes out like an unexpected blow, And sunsets play like preludes to a night That swings a silver, tropic moon on high To paint the palm trees and to splnsh the bay ° With shining jewels, while th'e whispering winds Cry through the night a mournful, keening lay. This is n. land that sires a hardy breed. Here man must live by honesty nnd toil; Ranchers, herders, farmers, they all need Patience and strength tq cultivate this soil That is so womanlike; now petu- Innt, now calm, Jealo'us of right, grudging her favors, Granting no simple wish, no unearned aim; Quick to resent a loyalty that wavers; Hard-visugud, tougli-thcwed, a swaggering land, Hiding her kindness and her open heart. Now' is her time. Now she must stand Against an enemy whoso sin is his art. Northward the rumbling storm clouds, vast and grim, Gather their forces, and the heavens reel. Courage be hers, and faith that will not dim Till force be crushed forever by her steel. Certain Amount Of Oil Available For Driveways .' Borough Clerk Charles F. Daly reported at Uic meetinc: of the 'board of warden and burgeKHCrt Tuesday that '02 pnrsor.a have applied to .have their driveways oiled by thfr street department, a certain amount of oil now being available.

No oil was available for this purpose in the past two years and coi uuquc-ntly many driveways need the work. Jt is expected .that .ment workers will start oiling tile driveways later this month. Says Army Might Use Mental 4Fs Hull Plans To Keep Post-War Planning Out Of Politics Washington,'Aup. 2—(UP)—Sec- retary'of State Hull is takirip another .fhportant. step designed to keep p'ost-war planning out of politics. Reliable Washington sources say ?tull soon will name Henry P. Fletcher, prominent 1-icpublican, as a special assistant. The appointment will have the same aim as President Roosevelt's inclusion of two Kepufolicans — Henry L. Stimson and the late Frank Knox—in his 1940 cabinet. Mr. Roosevelt sought bi-partis«in support at the lime of the national defense program, Hull seeks bipartisan support on post-war foreign policy. Sixty-six year old Fletcher has had a distinguished career beginning- durinR the Spanish American, war when he served with Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders. Ho has served as an American diplomat for 30 years in seven different countries. Young Couples, Married In Maine, Return To Mass. ..Boston, Aug. 2—(UP)—Three young brides have returned home with their husbands after eloping to Portland, Maine, Monday.

Bt/V WAR BO>'DS AND STAMPS THUFTS KKPORTKn Ervst Haven, Aup. 2—(UP)—A 14- year-old. boy is accused of picking- the pocltets of soldiers while 1 they were on duly at the- state rifle mnp;o. Police report the boy took $73 in. uaf'h as well as other valuables from the {servicemen, and from automobiles parked near the range. Chicago, CUP)—Dr. Harry Hoffman, director of the Illinois Ncuro- psychiatric Institute, and state alienist, says that the ri^-id routine and discipline of Army life might prove the most effective treatment for thousands of American men who have been rejected for "psy- choncurotic reasons." Army physicians have revealed that approximately 1,3-10,000 men have been turned ciown for psychoneuroses at induction centers, which represents a substantial .proportion- of all Army rejections,and D:-. Hoffman suggested. that possibly half of these mental re- jectees could be salvaged for military service. "I do not suggest that these borderline psyehoneurotics be taken for combat duty," Dr. Hoffman explained, "but they certainly are cnp.-ilile of peeling potatoes and carrying out routine noncombatnnt activities." Ho said that in civilian life psychiatrists often ' recommend a ch.'ingo of environment and occupation, giving patients a typo of "regimentation" not unlike army routines. Dr. Hoffman advocated a complete roproces-sing of a! mental •4-F's through competent psychiatrists, who would 'determine their fitness fo 'rarny life "on the basis of a complete social history and j after an intensive personal interview. "Even n normal man may show symptoms of psychoneuroSis at the Induction center," he said. "After four or five hours of waiting in line, with the fear of uncertainty, many normal men may show signs of cxtj-cmc rjervouaess—clammy hands, diluted pupils and a rapid heart, beat.' 1 After several months of training, Dr. Hoffman said some of these men may want to go into combat, and "may make excellent fighters." Veteran Local Marine Back Home (Continued from Page 1) Archbishop Serves At Front While tourlnjt the,forwnrd battle areas In Italy. ArcJiblshop Francis ,1.

P. F. C. Johnson declared that, when the way is open the Japanese are plenty fast in moving backwards. P. F. C. Johnson spent his first Christmas 'overseas in Australia but declared that a holiday season without snow never seems right to a northerner like myself. In the' service in the front lines however, the local youth declared that holidays and Sundays are just days in the week, and the otliccrs no' matter how hard they try cannot do much about the situation. When asked what the soldiers do for amusement on the little time they have off the local Marine- stated that there is always someone in the outfit who can do something or play some instrument to help interest the others. One Marine with him was a member of a famous orchestra ' in civil lifo, und the music was much appreciated. Colonel "Red Mike" Edson, famous Marine Raider, . was in charge of the Marines P. F. C. Johnson was with nnd ho bad grout praise for this superb leader, one of the hardest hitting of the great Leatherneck.' chieftain's. P.F.C.
