James Torres Eoclct, Mexican minister of education, recently informed Alexander \V. Wendell, president of the museum, that tho Mexican government has agreed to make a temporary loan of rnoro limn 120 art objects, ranging from relatively small sculptural representations of animals to life-size figures of Aztec and.Mayan characters and divinities. Wcddcll, former United States consul general here, who retired from the diplomatic service a 3'car ago, said that such an exhibition could contribute greatly "to that deep personal understanding ' between neighboring peoples that is of such vital importance at this time.' He explained that Mayan nnd Aztec art is known largely only to th«; achcologist.s anil that relatively little of it has been shown to the people of tho United States Mayan and A/.tcc art is "of unique importance," Wedclcll said. "It loses nothing by comparison with the Egyptian." Tho uncertainties of wartime transportation have forced the or- ganisation to postpone its plan until after the war. The exhibition would be conducted along the lines of an exhibition of Argentine contemporary art by the Virginia Museum in 19-10. More than .30,000 persons vis- ite'ci the Argentine exhibit at Richmond and it was subsequently .shown more than !30 museums throughout the United States. Wcrldoll said it proved highly .successful in stimulating interest in Argentine culture.

Henry. Four thieves who were spending some days in the town's jail, decided to take time out for extracurricular activity. So one night they cut their prison bars with a hacksaw and then robbed a .wholesale house. Since their first job was such a success, the quartet decided to make a repeat performance the next night. And they broke into a clothing store. The sheriff—Howard Trcado — says that after each excursion they brought their loot .back to their cell, probably figuring that it, would be the last place the police would think of looking. And the sheriff added that, anyway it was hard to get a hotel room on » Saturday night in MarqueUc, But the police were not caught entirely napping. Someone tipped them off that their guests intended to make a permanent getaway the next night, and steal a car for their escape. So the sheriff installed new window bars into the burglars' celt, and he recovered three men's suits. Tour pairs of shoes, two topcoats, two suit coses, socks, handkerchiefs and 40 dollars jn cash.

S OMEDAY, a group of grim-faced men will walk stiffly into a room, sit down at a table, sign a piece of paper—and the War will be over. That'll be quite a day. It doesn't take much imagination to picture the way the hats will be tossed into the air all over America on that day. But what about the day after? What happens when the tumult and the shouting have died, and all of us turn back to the job of actually making this country the wonderful place we've dreamed it would be "after the War"? . No man knows just what's going to happen then. But we know one thing that must not happen: We must not have a postwar America fumbling to restore an out-of-gear economy, staggering under a burden of idle factories and idle men, wracked with internal dissension .and stricken with poverty and want. We must not have breadlines and vacant farms and jobless, tired men in Army overcoats tramping city streets. That is why we must buy War Bonds—now. For every time you buy a Bond, you not only help finance the War. You help to build up a vast reserve of postwar buying power. Buying power that can mean millions of postwar jobs making billions of dollars' worth of postwar goods and a healthy, prosperous, strong America in which there'll be a richer, happier living for every one of us. To protect your Country, your family, and your job after the Wafr-buy War Bonds now.' KEEP BACKING THE ATTACK!
