AUGUST n. iu-ii SHOULD DO BETTER • Tluit many Xmig-Jitiiclc iv.sidenLsi arc not cooperating wliolu-licafU-dly hi tliu tin salvage campaign is apparent from the report on last Tuesday's collection, which states Unit the pickup here net toil only 8,900 pounds, or .'JO per cent of this bo rough's quota. In view of the fact that tin is urgently needed l>y our government and that repeated appeals for it have been made, H would seem that all houseliolderes in this coininijnity would lie eager and glad to do.their part In- turning in Fheir used cans. iPerhnps they will do better when llio next collection is made. At least it is to he hoped they,will do so. SWIMMERS SHOULD BE CAREFUL Notwithstanding -the fact that warnings against water ha/.ards are frequently given and much is bc-itig dune to enable bathci's to enjoy a ''safe and sane" roolmg ami refreshing dip in the waters 'ot v lakes arid seashore resorts, the iiurn- ,ber of drnwn'mgs continues to increase. Todfry the art of swimming is taught in- more • communities than ever before fuirl learners are instructed by their' toaclicrs t" carefully observe all the rules sugK c ' st °d for their safety. Some swimmers, however, insist upon taking risks that endanger their lives. They swim alone-fur out in the water where, they 'couJrl not be rescued if suddenly striok- •cn' with cramps. They overtax their strength. They plunge into the water while hot and porspiring. They dive •where the water is shallow and where they are in' danger of suffering skull fracture or other injuries. They risk their lives in other ways. Many non-swimmers venture out. beyond their depth, "tt'hen they suddenly discover they cannot touch bott'im with their fuel, they become frightened, and, if help is not close at hand, they may drown. Others in the nun-swimmer class risk their lives by sailing in boats and canoes with pranksters who think it great fun to ruck the craft, which easily may become unmanageable and overturn. Swimming is an enjoyable ami healthful pastime. But it should be done .blv and without risking one's life. LOVE THY RATION BOARD The director of the Cleveland district of the OP A, which rations three million Ohiomis, lias announced it may be nee-. .ossary to shut down two out -ol' every five district ration hoards because of a manpower shortage. While responsibili- "ties of ration boards increase, he says, a"ti"iis'e(l 'cars, coal and beer are added to the price'control list, their staffs dwindle, .lie lias to cnt.'his'paid staff because of budgetary limitations, and a serious. shortage of volunteers is developing. There tiro indications that these symptoms are nationwide. Volunteers have been the backbone of the OPA from the beginning. MV. Clinton FiskV, the director, believes that they are now suffering from lack of appreciation. The man who has to say no nftcr no to requests for exMfa gas docs 7iot increase his popularity in the community thereby. The gas man and the sugar'lady get equally tired of listening U^eomplaints they cannot help, gripes about shortages caused neither by That Man nor by O.PA nor by themselves but by War Itself. "isn't it about time people began to concentrate on what they owe to the generous individuals who are giving their time to-make rationing and price controls work for the benefit of 1 all'' Perhaps a few kind words from the neighbors they ore helping would do more to make vol- unteers'keep on than the weightiest official commendation from Chester Bowles.

Me was one of feu- who tried to pei'.suude the Fuehrer to keep America out of the war. The inside story of the- conspiracy of hitfh-i-unk discovery oC which hfought 'Wai 1 - limont !.<j 'the fore, is that there WHS no conspiracy. There was at least no intention of bombing Hit- lei- out of existence. German generals lonjr ago lost their power of resistance to the Kav.i.lender. Otherwise they would not hav.c stood Cor the way lie treated them. It W:is .lust Another Hcidh.s'tiifr Fire The only high-ranking- German olllccr who wanted to do something decisive Hitler was the former chief of the General Staff, General Ludwig Bock. About ! hini and his distrust with the. H'it- [ Ic;- regime this correspondent wrote more than two years apo in a book on the German generals. Therefore it was no surprise; that the llrst victim of the purge of military leaders was Beck, 'cvefi though he had been on the retired list since IMS. i'l fact, the whole bomb assault on Hitler was simply another Reichstag Fire. The Fuehrer and Heinrich Himmlei" -wanted • to get rid of "some-hifrh olliccrs. ' T.hc a^s- sault was staged—and, incidentally, just as clumsily as the Reichstag Fire. " -. Hitler wanted to,£Ct rid of these, generals not because they -..conspired to kill him, but because they were opposed to his -regime and were the potential leaders of any revolt which might have developed. By striking' swiftly 'against these men, the. Fuehrer has postponed tbe possibility of such a revolt. By demoting and probably arresting Field. Marshal von Rundstedt, he also eliminated the one m^n who might have aspired to become a German. Dar-. Ian, as this correspondent predicted he migrht nine months'ago in a national magazine, and who, according to inside information, has been trying hard to get in^'touch with the Allies. Inside Germany Is Stronger Than Ever There is no doubt of. it, events which have taken place - in Germany in the-' last week, must be considered another, victoi'y ' for Hitler. 'Inside Germany' his position is stronger than ever, for he has succeeded in establishing: a regime of men on whom he: can depend. For they are! all-in' the same boat with him. Wishful thinkers i:i this country also believe that by defeating Hit-. lei- on the military front, Nazism and Fascism will be crushed forever.' They seem to forget that Hitler und Mussolini were doing quite well before tho war. Once Allied troops have reached Berlin- the Nazi Party will cease to exist ofitcinlly. But it will continue to exist underground, and if it is not crushed soon! it can become more dangerous . to civilization than it has ever been. The >' J'lan to Go Underground Sources which can not be divulged have marie it possible for this correspondent to know of Nti/.i plans for the period after defeat. The director of a monster organization which has been built up ever since May 1C, 19-13— this date wi'.l become historical — is Heinrich Himmler. Known the world over us a bestial policeman, thi.s man is also a ruthless and cf-' ficrent organizer, especially when assisted in his "post-war" plans by Fritz Kaltenbrunner. Director of the Gestapo, and S3 General Werner Heissmeyer. The latter has been busy training- a. small army of agents for coming underground" activities. His agents will not only work in Germany but will be sent abroad, particularly to the United States. The Nazis have high hopes about the amount of. help they will llnd there, where, they believe they have great numbers of sympathizers. They trust that these Americans, who now have gone under cover, will "come into the open once' the war is ended and it is no longer" considered treason to collaborate "with the Nazis.
