STRANGE BRITTANY American troops leaving Normandy to Tight through .Britlany must at times think that they are not in 1'Vnnc.e, but in a different land. In a way they are. The dukes of Brittany were long practically independent of the 'French king. Though a dialect of French is spoken, flu, 1 iyal Breton language is not French at al! but a Celtic spi-roli, related to (inclic and \\Vlsh. The 15 re t ft u fishermen were and still are hardy souls, sailing far out in stormy seas with small fishing boats. The Bretons say that their fishers knew America before Cohnnlius, and it is lilce them to have ventured so i far afield. Different as Brittany is from the rest of France, it is similar in one respect to all the occupied countries. .It will find relief, satisfaction and joy in its libc't'a- tion.

"YOUR MIND AND BODY" THE GREATEST GOLFER Who was tin- world's greatest golfer? T)«\'o Ogilvit!. for more- I ban a genorafjoii the- professional at the Augusta. Oa., Country club, gives a surprising answer. He (loos not, like must, people, name his fellow-Gooi'gian, Bobby Jones, but the old-time British master. Harry Vardun. ''Time was," says OgilvTe, "when Vnrdon was six to twelve strokes better than anyone else. Man, you have to have something to win the British Open six times, and the Americ;ui Open on top of that." Vanlon -was not a specially long driver. Where lie excelled was in his accuracy. Ogilvio is starting something when he jnaintains that .Jones was not a reliable putter. Putting, according to Ogilvie, is the most important item in a golfer's grime. Maybe Mr, Duffer should stop asking his opponents to concede him short putts, and work on that branch of the game. We like to see 'Charles Parker, genial executive of the Naugatuck Valley En ; graving Co., walking up the street early each morning. Mr. Parker is the living image of the spirit of peace, contentment, and congeniality John Greacen, Jr., the sad sage of Brookfield, has abandoned his post as weather prophet and temperature reporter, The Column is inclined to think that the Sage just couldn't get the weather to coincide with his predictions, and so he gave up. By LOGAN CLKNU'CNING, M. D. For Cancer Control THE EDUCATION of the public ca'ncer is proceeding npacc if one can, judge by the lit 1 eraturo Una comes to my desk. The American Society Tor the Control of Cancer publishes an article in :i weekly nuigaxinc, and it issues u bulletin of its own for general, publir: distribution, it appoints a month to be designated, cancer' control 'month, many state lic-nlth- departments start campaigns o!' explanation among- their citizens. How much should the public be educated about cancer? I confess I don't know. Enough so they use common sense, ar.d not enough to get frightened, or go off. naif cocked at anything 1 that happens to their family or relatives or. neighbors and insist on unnecessary operations or some fool quack treatment. But they should know enough to realize when there is. a rcul indication for it. afui to gut early and proper treatment. And that is a tall order. A little learning is a dangerous thing, and when they get a little learning about cancer common sense often flies out of the window, ninvront Types of Cancer I think I know something about the dilforcnt cancers. I have had a sltin cancer and I don't think I displayed any morbid fear about it. 1 had it right in my old vaccination scar and I didn't recog- nixe what it \vas for several weeks, and then when it beg-an to bleed (it never hurt) I went to a dermatologist and he .said—"Why 'that is an epitheloma," ono I went, hight out of his olllco to a surgeon's oflice who cut it out, and it was sent to a pathologist who sectioned it anil said, "Yes, it is an epitheloma," and that's the last I have worried about it since.

They point out that the Germans started the war with a huge buck- log of munitions and still have plenty of ground equipment, including artillery, although they havc dipped heavily into their supply of planes. American production experts say, however, that the quality of German weapons has beer, deteriorating, with the Na/is forced to use substitutes for substitutes in some instances, United States war production, steadily inching upward, was approximately one and one-half times that of the Axis last year, while the United Nations output was llg- ured at two and one-ha'.£ limes as great as Germany and Japan.

But on the basis of preliminary records, she isn't a formidable match the Ccjiinecitcut congress woman. Mrs. Luce's performance at the GOP convention in Chicago stamps her as a political phrasemakcr to be reckoned with.
