Number 1 • (Continued From Page One) tiyy iin .ve no stomacli for fighting aiid are likely to qi|it. •What's the answer to all this? We have been misled by the homely trsiditlon. thai the German is an • tasy-goitjg, placid individual of ample girtli whose sole concerns are hiji job, his guoii-imiured Imuslrau aiid his children, and whose pleas- uie Is a pipe and seidel of beer hi a "music hall':' Well, thill's .somewhat eharacter- i.stic of part of the Germun population. Perliaps where we go wrong Ls: In forgetting that all Germans, • placid or otherwise, are particulaviy ; adaptable to regimentation, and that the mai.nspring of German militarism and barbarism is the powerful Pi-ussian race of overlords. These junkers of great wealth have ' for generations made war and lead- er.'ihip llieir sole business. • The Pru.ssian • represents to the last word in military craftsmun- .ship. He's a skillful leader. He's b'ave in battle. He's not to be tak- • eii: lightly. But that's not the whole story. It ; represents Germany up to the advent of Hitler. The Nazi fuehrer ha.s superlmpo.sed on this evil .structure something infinitely worse. He; has deprived German youth of their religion and created in them the spirit of savagery that has resulted in some of the most horrible ' atrocities the world has known. He Had much fertile soil for his seed, because the Prussian is by nature a wholly ruthless and conscienceless killer. So we have no rea.son to regard German: military skill, leadership, bravei-y. or utter brutaUty with any aegree oi compliance. There's never a m6ment when the German isn't dangerous. He will become more so as we push onto his home soil.

(AP)—The voters last November cooked up a batch of double trouble In congress. The reading clerks discovered it just today. Staffs in house and senate compiled the usual list of names that are spelled alike or sound alike. This Is imperative In each congress to avoid errors, especially on roll calls. They found out that the 79th congress breaks all records for dupUcates. There are lOS sets of doubles—identical names. It has the bUl clerks in both branches just a little dotty. They can see from 'way back a long, tough road trying to get bill sponsors' names attached to the right states. The senate provides three Johnsons—California, Colorado and South Carolina. There are three Thomases—Idaho, Oklahoma and Utah. The house did it up brown. There are two Aliens, an Andersen, two Andersons, ana an Andresen; two Andrews; two Baldwins, two Barretts, two Bates, two Bennets, two Bradleys, two Browns, (you'd think there'd be more Browns), one Byrne and a Byrnes, two Cannons, two Cases, three Coles, a Daughton and a Doughton, two Delaneys, two Douglases, and an Engel and an Engle, two Grants, a Gwinn, Gwynne and Quinn, two Halls, a Harless and a Harness, two gi^Holmeses. six Johnsons, a KelJey IsT ^and a Kelly, a McMlllen and a McMillan, two Mansfields, two Martins, two Millers, Two Murrays, two O'Briens, two Petersons, two Prices, a Reece'and a Rees, And two Reeds, two Robertons, a Robinson and a Robslon, two Roes, one Rodgers and three Rogers, two Schwabes ihalf brothers) two Simpsons, four Smiths, a Somers, a Sumner and a Sumners, two Thomases, a VoorhLs and a 'Vorys, a Wolfeden and a Wolverton, a Woodruff and a Woodrum.

CUPID'S REVERSES Chicago, Dec. 30. (AP)—In scenes that resembled the pre-Chrlstmas rush, crowds of men and women jammed four divorce com-ts yesterday seeking decrees before the New Year. Courtroom attendants again described the crowds as the largest In their memory, rivaling last week's rUsh when some 500 divorces were granted. Judge Michael Peinberg terming the scenes "tragic," said "in this holiday season families should be happiest."

Several arrests were known to have been made. Fourteen deputies who supporteu' a manifesto Thursday calling In effect for replacement of De La Guardla were In the Hotel Tivoll in Ancon, Canal Zone, awaiting transportation to the Mexican embassy, which offered asylimi. The Immediate effect of the alert ordered by Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Meyer at headquarters of the Panama Canal department was to keep U. S. personnel out of Panamanian jurisdiction. De La Guardla, meanwhile, met with political leaders to plan his next step. On June 1, 1940, there were 3,452,000 head of sheep on the farms of the Dominion of Canada.
