AUUUST Ifl, 1M-I INVASION OF SOUTHERN FRANCE "'The announcement that tin.- Allied invasion of 'Southern France, begun this morning, is clicking well is heartening Hows. ' i The Allies landed between Marseille and Nice and met with'only a minimum ol' -resistance from the Germans, who, apparently, were given a tactical surprise because they expected landings in other areas of the Mediterranean euast. The 'speed nnct precision with which the invasion was carried out showed that the plans had.been carefully made and that the invaders had sulTicient strength to establish and hold their beachheads. Following the initial successes, hundreds of gliders brought additional air borne fighters into Southern France. The -work of the air forces was magnificently done - : and powerful naval formations blasted enemy ships in the way of the, invasion armadas. ••- At the:tiThe of this writing everything ;is-smd~to he going according to schedule and it/lo'riks- as though .Hitler and his gang..-bt' war mongers have had one more headache added to the many pains with which.they 'afflicted as the day of their i'in'al destruction draws nearer—a day •which'is coming :as surely as the rising of -tomorrow's sun.

The Machine Age ,' THE PATIENT who is always so anxious to have tho doctor back up a machine .in order to make a diagnosis is suffering from a deep seated conviction that the machine is more accurate than tho human heing who is the diagnostician. A'IHI one reason that idea is false is that the machine .simply furnishes some data, some facts, who have to go through the diagnostician's, human m;nd be- foi-o they can be interpreted, before they fall into tho right cute- | gory to form the proper conclu- ' sion. Tho other and perhaps better reason such idoas are erroneous is that no machine on earth is as delicate and as beautifully competent as the diagnostician's human eye. When' a trained diagnostician looks at any abnormalilj—I care not what it be—.1 lump under tho skin, a pair of tonsils, an aching joint hi; instinctively begins to make notes. Is it red, ho asks himself, is it tender,-how long has it b«r% there, is it an'inflammation, or a new gHowth, or a degeneration, did it start somewhere clse- And instinctively also he is fitting it into his acquaintance with thu changes in human tissues, described by the science of pathology or diseased processes, until finally ho has it classified. Then he knows more than any machine would ever be able to tell him, what the'na- ture of this abnormal process is, what the cause is. what the outcome is likely to be, whether there is any way to cure or relievo it. Jfixtt'iision of Vision The basis of those judgements is largely the conditions which his eye has brought to' him. Sometimes, as in the case of disease of. the chest or the'abdomen where it is located so deep tho eye cannot see: it, he-depends on his fingers and his ears. Thfit is why any 'extension of vision is "of such great value in medical work. We have had a good many such extensions in ..the last few 'yours. Indeed the- great value of the. X-ray is that-it is merely, an 'extension of our eyes into opaque- tissue. It reveals what we might see in bones, lungs, heart and stomach if we could tear aside ,the flesh. But it is no more than just the human eye operating under exceedingly favorable circumstances. ' Then we have had quite an array of extensions of the eye into the cavities of the body, by moans of electric lighted. instruments. The ophthalmoscope .to seo the retina of the oyo was tho first of these. Then came -the otoscope to sec the 'eardrum, and the laryngoscope to see the vocal cords. And then a series'of eyus on sticks that could be thrust into the dark ro- ceses of the body, the systoscope to see the inside of the bladder and the proctoscope to sec the inside of the rectum. WASHINGTON—Washington insiders are beginning to wonder if th.i gossip' of a rift between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill, prominent several months ago, might not have some basis in fact after all. As the weeks speed by. the president and prime minister seem to be-establishing something new in tho way of records—their failure to moot for fnco-to-face discussions, as has'beer, their practice since the outbreak of the war. The two national leaders have not met in conference since the famed three-power meeting at Teheran in Deci-mber, 10-13—almost e i g h t months ago. This, despite the fact Hint they announced publicly then- intention to confer every three months because of the rapidly- changing war picture. It was recalled that after the Teheran conference, in which Joseph Stalin participated, there was gossip that the Russian leader and Churchill were at odds on the strategy to be pursued in the war against Germany, and • that the president resolved the dilliculties in favor of Stalin — much to Ctfurchill's chagrin. The two-Engish-speaking leaders have not met nee that time. Meanwhile, the long strides made n the war both in Europe and in the Far East seem to provide am)le Wises.for further stratcly and diplomatic discussions at the high- -•st level. To administration supporters, vho are loath to admit the possibility of differences between .F. D. R. and Churchill, another reason Tor their failure to meet is of- •erecl. They point out that the ^resident spent much of the winter •nonths'in illness anld, last spring, vas forced tq, take ail extended •cst away from the White House. THE HEAVY EFFECT OF VICTORY is beginning to rage through Washington despite warnings of over-optimism from the nation's eaders. PcrltoncNcope and Castroscope The latest of these extensions of the eye arc the peritonescope and the ^astroscope. . • . The pcritoneoscopc is an electric listed stick which can be thrust through a -minute- opening in the abdominal wall and by moving it around' can be put into position to That's one reason for the press- ire urgency of reconversion legis- 1-ilion and the need for putting adequate safeguards into the law to protect the country's economy during he transition period. Through I he- halls'Vf "Congress is ringing the cry that Germany'is almost through and wo must be. prepared. There is'good reason in-Washington 'for. optimism. From congressmen to government clerKs, Washingtonians are headline readers. With eaclr edition 'they see Germany taking more blows. And the consensus seems to be here that Uie Nazis will be through by Christmas at least and perhaps within the next few months. They point otic the following: Hitler's break with the army ' generals is irreparable. The Allies are stepping up' their blitzkrieg In the west with deadly speed. Russia is knocking at Germany's gates in the east and'can pick her spot for an offensive. Nazi soldiers are giving iip in hordes. Fuel for Germany's. war- 1 -machine is becoming seriously scarce Europe's underground movements are poised to add to Hitler's mounting headaches. THE PESKY "ESKY" Trial started it ail, and now the nation's capital has turned its virtuous gaze upon its own- bookshelves to continue the clean up. As a result, U. S. Attorney Edward M. Curran has ruled that such books us "The Sex Life of an Unmarried Adult." and "Eugenics and Sex Relations," are taboo for Washington readers. Strangely, local dealers were "all out" .when called upon for comment. see all the organs of that region. Surgeons have long had a procedure they called an exploratory la.- mrotomy. This was used in cases which had puz/.led the attending physicians and surgeons and consisted • of opening the abdomen as for an operation to sec exactly what was present. The pcriton- eoscope docs an exploratory Ia- parotimy with a tenth of the fuss. None but a local anaesthetic is required and the incision is no bigger than enough to admit a lead pencil. Many cases supposed to be cancer have been found to be relatively benign gallbladder or uterine disease in this way. The gastroscopc performs the same function for the inside of the stomach. It is a flexible tube with an electric light and lenses in the end which the patient swallows so that the entire inside of the stomach can be visualized. Its great successes have been in the early recognition of cancer of the stomach—early enough . so that they can be successfully removed surgically. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS A. R.:—Would a teaspoonful of lemon juice taken daily aid in keeping a person's weight down without dieting? Answer—No. The only thing it could possibly do would be to dampen the ap'petite! and that is subconscious dieting. DESPITK A CONGRESSIONAL ban on WASPS in the U. S. Army, there is a move under way to incorporate the women pilots in j'ncle-.-Sam's lighting '.forces any- vay. Ever since being given the cold- slioulder by Congress early this mmmor, the WASPS have been fuzzing angrily, recently issuing an ultimatum of their own. In' an 11-page report Jacqueline Cochran. WASP director, demanded the "girls" be made part of the Armv or given their discharge: The top air chief, Gen. H: H. .Arnold, always was friendly toward .the dca of women pilots to 1111 out. the need for "manpower" in, his'flying forces. And if the women pilots are-dis. banded, Jacqueline adds, they should be given military status if only for a day so those who have served can be recognized as "veterans" of World War II. - tion of theatrical clubs Halls of No Muzoomn." For years this episode sway: One of the Broadway theatric:') clubs was in danger of lo«- ing Its home. A general ™etinsr was called and it wa* voted lh«t club dues bo raised to $900 a yea, • With that, an actor jumped up and. cried: "I object to owing. »o much!" -, Jimmy Walker rated an actors financial status: "Some woekn ^ makes fifty thousand dollaid .a year." The Broadway Cheese Oluo <c o m p o s c d of newspapermen, actors, advertisers and producer*) summed up the Kcneral status by its mu-sthead, rcadinp: 'We have, absolutely no purpose and anything that happens to us is vclvc; :. -NO CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUES" That warning . to delinquent members was issued by Alvin Kayton (now successful enough to go back to his right name)—"Code Napoleon", was u jerk set of rules compared to ukases issued by tho triumvirate of Morrie Ryskmd. Marc Connolly and Ct-nc Buck-,— the best features of each produced this composite: "Nover knock n brother member till he's been gone about half an hour." Tho fraternal and paternal pat- torn of this haphazard group can best be summed up by this truth: An elderly member named Crosby wo-s dying. It was a matter of hours. The treasurer quickly looked over the club's books and found good old Crosby a little in arrears. Then came the fine, gesture. A committee was formed and it rushed to the dying man's hotel. They took him by the hand and announced: "Your debt to us is wiped out—and on top of that, we've voted you life membership." Cheesecake President for 30 Years Why. this cockeyed Broadway theatrical club has never been written up before is a mystery. (It look Joe Laurie, Jr.. to force us to the typewriter.) Your columnist of the moment has been the Cheese Club's president for 30 years, without break in succession. But it is no compliment, believe us. The only reason yours truly has been president so long is that the club felt it was cheaper to keep re-electing him than give him a present on retiring! "Cockeyed" 'Broadway Cheese Club is right. Yet, it was the play and proving ground of every nonsense propounded. But look at the members of research of its delicious folderol—Will. Rogers, George Gershwin. Gene Buck, Walter Winchell, Laurence Weiner, Giovanni tfartinelli. Marc Connolly, Harry =Siechcnbach. Pete Smith, "Walter vingsley. Major Ed Bowes. Milt Gross, William Gargan. Gerald Spiero.

Will Rogers sweated most in his unsuspected initiation. Being at 'the leight tot his fame, he went through all the reactions of a 'tryout act," playing to a theater of agent*. By arrangement, the iiembers were to greet his famous sallies with silence and dead-pan'. Rogers opened with a topical nifty. No response. ' His legs buckled. Another wisecrack and again death. Feeling he wasn't retting over, he switched: "Gentle- ricn, you've probably heard all my stuff, so I'll be serious for. a mo- ncrit." With his first profound utterance, they laughed — and only then did he.get wise that the gang -;is riding- him, ;anu> I ho Involution —Daily No man was too great or famous o be above being insulted at the !hecse Club luncheons. To begin with, its clubhouses were many. The members got most of their exercise picking up their belongings as they were thrown out this hall or that. Yet, in spite of this crazy fraternal outfit, they entertained the cream of the leaders of all forms of human endeavor. In fact, they were afraid not to accept an invitation. This club was made up of newspapermen, actors, advertisers and press agents — and these fearful guests knew the old theory—"You can accuse the average man »f anything and find him partly guilty." So top men of the professions graced the dais of this group of comparative benign screwballs. Vincent Lopez, then holding UJSHKIt AH11EST Boston, Aug. l!j—(U.P)—A military policeman faces a court-martial or. a charge of shooting a .Roxbury so'.dier.

To be sure of pitting a' favorable vote,' he invited the whole organization, and its frlcndu to, o'c his guests,' "on thn cuff." Never did a group eat a restaurant out so fast . Finally, Arthur'Cae- sar, a bit "high," ROt up and mad* this devastating decision: "Members of- tho club. Vincent Lopex nan applied for membership and to ,-show he's a good fellow, ha* -wlTic'J and dined all'of us frco, tonight: Well, such a dope and sucker we don't want as a member ot our organization'." . Tho underground reputation (or notoriety) of this Cheese Club wai greater than its general -public appeal. 'So potent was-its draw that two months before he was assai- uinaled, Huey' Lorig' "crashed" on* of the dinners — uninvited,,-he mounted • the dais and made' a speech. .His bodyguard entered \vith_him and linod the w»lU a'round him. .That, night, the late Arthur Brisbane got wind of the party and was holding up an editorial till ht got certain facts: "Did Huey Long have a • bodyfiTaiird with him?" "Yes," he informed. Long read Brisbane's editorial next day and burned—for Brisbane spoke ol the futility of power that had to b« protected by a bodyguard of bruisers. Huey got hold of our phone number and let us have it "You gave .him that story about the bodyguard—bruisers, nothing ;hey were seven U. S. S^naxors." he yelled. Now, there was a newt story, for Brisbane — taxpayers- representatives guarding a potential dictator—only in the Cht*s« Club could such a mess be stirred. Leslie Howard, on the dais that uight- .actually paled on Huey's entrance. The dinners were absolutely informal— Mai-tinelli sang at one of them. . A member of the organization ^volunteered to accompany Che Met star at the piano. Never heard such a "Pagliacci" — th* walls-seemed to~shake. And without missing a-;notc, Martinelli yelled to the pianist: "You-stink" —waved' him from".the piano and finished on the key planned. Mayor LaGuardia was ((ways a match tor this gang—one of the few who slugged it out with repartee. .So.- phie Tucker was the"only woman guest to ever sit with, this motley crew. But only allowed in th« room in the second session — th* lirst part of the dinner's festivitiei were given over to a bot of "pool- parlor" dialogue. Space doesn't allow the names of all the celebrities that attended .these 1 unbelievable functions. If they care to re^ member their experiences, they'll keep alive the greenest of preen- rooms—the newspaper man's land actor's lifeblood—the Paradise -of -being yourself"—greasepaint arid printer's ink can wait.
