Led by Henry Specht the lolans cpened tast and set a swift pace ihroughQUt the fii-st half which ulosed 23 to 13 in favor of the Mustangs. In the third, however, Pittsburg went on a scoring rampage • arid nearly caught the Mustangs, the period clasine with the score 20 to 23 in favor of lola.

Well, what's the answer \o this? IL'S clear enough. By the time the Germans have been evicted from Poland, the Lublin government likely will have all the country organ- r/.ed under Its rule. In due there will be .a plebiscite to .sec what .sort, ot government the people want, ;incj who do you think will win? Under circum.stances what is liiere the Big Tluec can do, within the realms of realism, but accept thi.s? Like it or not. the Lubhn regime will be an accomplished fact. Tliere are going to be numerous "Polands" before the reorganization of Europe is completed. Both London and Moscow have invited America's advice in .solving Europe's problems, but we shall do well to note there's no sign that advice from Uncle Sam or anyone else can prevent the • establishment of spheres of influence which, the United States believes, arc breeder.s of dissension.

"Butch sure was glad to see me, because he couldn't get up the ladder," said Bill, taking up the story. "The Mahan wasn't going down very fast. We threw life belts and rafts into the water and got the v/ounded on to them. We only lost a few men. They must have been killed by the explosion. except one man who was blown overboard while we were doing 20 knots." "The last one to get on a life raft was Butch," broke In Prenchie. "I looked out .and there he was sitting up like he owned the whole ocean. "Butch can swim but he just stayed on the raft. Everybody wanted him there because everybody on the ship loved him. Why. Butch bummed food from the captain until thi- captain let him cat at the table with him. Butch got his feet on the clean linen tablecloth but the captain didn't mind. And once, when we were heading for Leyte, the ship physician. Dr. H. W. Crail of Las Vegas, N. M., got olf the ship at HoUandla to get some medicine he needed for Butch. "Butch doesn't know much about land becaase the Mnhan was always at sea." "Butch's nine months old now and he's spent all but six weeks of it on ship," added Bill. "The captain said he was a great dog. He asked me if I'd bring him aboard the new Mahan, when she's commi.s.sioned, if I was assigned to her. And I told him .sure. Butch iiiKi r Ixitli would be there." Gloomy Days In Prospect Topeka, Jan. 20. (AP)—A gloomy week-end was in prospect for Kansas and Weatherman S. D. Flora said today he saw no improvement in sight.

She was Maizie, the telephone operator, on "Rhythm Row." Come any Tuesday night at 8:30, you'll find her taking the part of a nurse or anything else that comes along on the "American Story."
