One of the toughest and most thankless jobs in connection
with the invasion of France is the task assigned to the civil
affairs administrators. Not only must they restore order
and provide food and shelter for the civilian populace, but
they must also use all their powers of tact and persuasion to
French cities have been devasted by heavy artillery fire,
bombing, house-to-house fighting. Homes have been demol-
ished,:, farms ruined, livestock slaughtered. Tragically, inno-
cent civilian bystanders have been counted among the dead
Frenchmen are human, and being human, they must feel
a sense of frustration and bitterness at the unhappy turn of
event* that has brought havoc to their country. Many of
the areas over which our invasion armies are now tramping
have not felt the full devestation of World War II before
Moreover the Nazis, schooled in continental ways, have
had a long time in which to infiltrate their propaganda, and
) the carefully disciplined German army of occupation has un-
doubtedly been cautioned to guard against incurring dis-
i pleasure of the French populace. The underground has bit-
terly fought the Nazis, and there are unquestionably thous-
ands of Frenchmen who hate the Boche, but reports have
indicated that the Allies did meet with some popular dis-

GOLDEN DAYS FOR THE THEATER
“Oscar”, famed movie award, will have a worthy colleague
in the new Lambs Club trophy to be presented each season
to the actor most worth v of the honor.
This recognition of Thespian excellence is made possible
by John Golden, widely known Broadway producer who has
set aside a fund of $100,000 for the advancement of the the-
ater. His gift will provide, in addition, funds to aid young
aspiring playwrights, fellowships and awards “for the gen-
eral advantage of the theater," assistance to the needy in the
entertainment field, and the organization of a standard re-
pertory group as the initial step toward establishment of a
Golden recognizes the need for more good playwrights and
more good actors. The program he has inaugurated should
go a long way toward advancing the dramatic arts.
