PHONE 256 JIM POOL I ^MMMK. . * • • * i — The Paper Manger Writes A Will (By John Byson) Realizing that the end is near, the paperhanger writes his will. From my special correspondent In Germany I learn it is rumored in Germany that the super empdror now realizes that his number is up and which prompts him to write his will, revoking all wills heretofore. The will reads as follows: "This is the last will and festa- ment of me, Adolf Hitler, and ruler of the German empire, realizing that I am fairly up against it and expecting to meet with a violent death at any minute at the hands of the brave Sammies, hereby make my last will and testament. I appoint Premier Stalin, of Russia, to be my sole executor (by kind permission of the Allies.): 1—I give and beueath to France and all other countries, the territories I overran, as this is only a case of returning stolen property. I don't deserve any credit for that, and am not likely to get it either. ^ 2—To Russia I give Turkey for Stalin's Christmas dinner. 3—To Uncle Sam I give all my dreadnaughts, submarines, torpedo boats, destroyers and fleets of tanks, generally, what is left of them. He is bound to have them in the end. So this is only anticipatory events. 4—To Belgium I should like to give .all the thick ears, black eyes and broken noses that she presented me with when I politely trespassed on her territory. 5—To John Bull I give what is left of my army as his generals seem so handy at turning my men into sausage meat. 6—To my faithful servant, Mussolini, I bequeath my most tender mercies and to those of the Pope. May he rest in peace in the catacombs. 7—To Roosevelt and Churchill I leave my mailed fist. They'll find it useful, no doubt, when they resume their militant tactics. 8—To the College of Science and Museum I leave my famous mustache, souvenior of the greatest swanker in this or any other age. 9—To Sir Ernest Shackleton I leave the pole; I've been up it so long that I regard it as my own property. 10—To the Jews I leave the Weeping Wall of Jerusalem—they will no doubt have use for it. (Signed) ADOLPH HITLER, Lord of land, sea and air. Witnesseth—To his last will in the presence of us, his ministers and keepers — Herman Goering, Heinrich Himmler.
