As head of the American Le-
gion, Col. Roane Waring has re-
cently travelled 60,000 miles,
much of it in this country.
He says he has never seen any-
thing iike the way women and
small childnAi are going about the
country—and he says flatly that
he thinks they ought to stay home.
He believes that if they don’t
the government is going to have
to crack down on civilian travel-
wrong in Col. Waring’s reasoning?
Look, isn't there something
He thinks it is perfectly all right
for him to jaunt from coast to
coast, addressing rallies, speak-
ing on such subjects as "Tl»£ War
Effort on the Home Front.”
But is it really essential for a
man, even if he is head of a great
organization like the American
Legion, to travel over the country
is there enough difference be-
tween what he would say about
the v\ai effort and what a local
thinker would say to justify a
man's taking up train space to
go clear across the country to say
Important for Wives
Ik it as important for the people
of a town to hear another speech

little Mrs. Brown, who is mak-
ing her own effort to take John-

lead hard, dreary lives. There’s
no getting around that unpleasant
truth. And a trip to see their hus-
bands is the most important thing
in their lives.
If Col. Waring wants civilians
to do something about the travel
situation why doesn’t he ask
civilians not to take vacation
trips; ask organizations that are
essential only to themselves (and
that takes care of a lot of therm
not to have state or national con-
ventions; ask women who still
have their husbands with them

WITH AN AIR BORNE FORCE
ON SICILY, July 12 'Delayed*—
Like a Wellsian fantasia the lug
planes were strung out behind us,
nulling troon-i died lun-
ging at the end ol tov. lines like
Our course was planned to car-
ry us some 400 miles, at the end
of which we are going to attempt
tu land in the half light of the
moon on hostile territory.
The attempt was successful and
the most ambitious glider-borne
invasion in history started shortly
after 10 p.m. July 9.
At the start a high wind swirl-
ed dust clouds across the air field
as our American glider began to
move along the runway at the
end of the rope which linked us
with our Douglas tow plane.
Once we got into the air sold-
iers with supreme nonchalance
were digging sticky candy out of
a jar with their fighting knives
and munching cheerfully.
We bounced crazily at times in
a near gale and the glider offi-
cer piloting us was striving with
his controls in a fashion that can-
not be campared with anything
else, for flying a glider under
these high wind conditions is
nerve-wracking and difficult.
When darkness came tiny lights
were switched on by the tug plane
and these pin points in the black-
ness were the only orientation
with which to tell whether we
were following our tug course. I o
deviate from it would have meant
crashing into the sea.
About 10.10 p.m. we sighted the
coast and came under immediate
fire from light ack-ack and sight-
ed more searchlights than we had
The tow rope was released with
a clattering jar.
Tracers and small caliber shells
went through the tail but none ex-
ploded and damage was minute.
When we were not more than 200

searchlights were crisscrossing in

The Italian public as a whole
novel has had its heart in this
war. The country was swept into

treachery against fiance ami,

As 1 previously have reported
in this column, back as far as
fhe fateful Munich conference,
when fhe power-mad but pusil-
lanimous Duce was beginning to
sniff the Hitlerian heels, I
found in Italy a widespread feel-
ing of abhorrence for the Nazi
loader and his works. The av-
erage Italian had no use for
Hitler, and decidedly had no in-
tention of going to war to sup-

New School Head

Darell Manney, former princi-
pal of the McLean High School,
has been selected as the first

i ulty is now in progress.

The new principal attended

and Oklahoma A&M.
Since then, however, there has
been a change in Italy. The royal
house seems to have made a re-

Coincidenlly, we have seen
the curious spectacle of Italian
staff officers coolly surrendering
en bloc in Sicily, and their sol-
diers happily following suit. Ob-
viously many of the Roman
troops had no intenlion of re-
sisting the invasion but. on the
contrary, welcomed it. That’s
not because they are unwilling
to fight for their country but
because it's clear to them that
they aren't battling for the
fatherland but are merely pro-
viding cannon fodder for Hit-

to the Italians
Of course, the pressure from
Hitler is very great, and he has
many troops and secret police
in Italy to maintain his power.
That is calculated to have a re-
strainma influence on a lot of
folk. Still, there can be no
question that a large percentage
of the people are ready for re-
volt and only need a strong lead-
er to set them marching.
This is the crucial moment
when the king might .step in and
save his country from further suf-
fering. It's doubtful if Hitler
could do much to restrain a con-
certed movement, for he is up to
hi.s neck in troubles north of the
Alps. Certainly the Allied leadei
