There Miss Crawford, whose unsung aid to the forgot ten and needy of filmdom has made her a solidly popular char acter in a makebelieve world, danced around a sickbed. 'For her, an attack of influenza Had robbed her of the moment of gtory of which every actress dreams — sloping up to receive her- Oscar. But friends, headed by Director Mike Curtiz who accepted the award in her behalf at the theater, decided that even a tern perature of 102 shouldn't cost her all of the thrill that goes with win ning the highest honor Hollywood's thousands of workers — from grips to executive producers — can be stow. • So they went to her rambling Brentwood home and there, while Joan sniffled and cried handed her the statuette.

The possibility of an overture to ..flu.- Russian commander in Manchuria in the interests of permitting American military officers to enter that area was mentioned today amidst reports of a large scale Soviet troop withdrawal north from Mukden. A source close to General Marshall, special U.

We've found the answer here in Bern, and it's a strange story. The fall of France left Swil/er- lancl absolutely alone in Ihc- face of the Nazi-Fascist combination. The world policy of the Swiss had been based on the balance of power in Europe. .They had figured that if one country attacked them, then another would come to their rescue, but with P'rance's collapse the Axis war machine was rolling free. The Swiss ancl Fascism which ran contrary to their democracy ancl religion. Some eight times Germany tried lo get Switzerland lo join Nazi movements of various sorts, his idea being thus lo drive in Swiss neutrality. Each time this country refused, but the clanger continued great. So in HMO Switzerland decided thai, alone or not she would fight lo the end to defend herself. She had as her main defense the Alps, and believe me these mighty and precipitous mountains are close to invulnerable in themselves, quite apart from strategic man-made redoubts, and fortifications driven a mile deep into their stone sides. We have seen some of these defenses, and there is no doubt that they presented an obstacle which oven tile mightv Hillerian army wouldn't have liked to tackle. The Swiss also had industries capable of producing light war material anct their standing army was (iOO.OOO. officered by soldiers of long training. Furthermore all 'Swiss men are given an intensive basic military training. So reserves were available. However, the country was threatened by more than military force, for there was constant German propaganda lo iry lo destroy national unity as well as false rumors about Swiss problems. To meet Ibis danger General Henri Guisan, the commander in chief, decided in 1940 to create a new service to build morale among the troops. This was done through permanent orientation towards the economic and political problems of the country, and he attacked the work in an unusual way. The orientation was carried out by personal contact between orientation officers ancl men and not by printed propaganda. The Swiss principle; of absolute honesty was applied, that is .the idea of always telling the truth. In this way a tremendous sense of confidence was created between men and officers. Naturally a great part of the orientation program was devoted to clearing up the Nazi lies, and Ihis was successfully mel by Ihe program of lolling Ihe exacl truth. This task was complemented by application of the constructive policy of giving to each man the reason why Switzerland should be ready to fight in self-defense al any minute. It was made clear to each soldier thai he was engaged not only in a way of arms but of ideas — between the materialistic totalitarian way of life of the Nazi and the democralic way of life of Ihe Swiss, built on Ihe foundation of Christian principles. This orientation look into account the fact that Hitler was trying to destroy Christianity, and one of the chief orientation officers tells me thai the army's reaction to this produced a high morale. So Switzerland was ready for Hitler, and despite his military strength only necessity would have 13.00 Mrs. C.C. Brianl ............
