He declared that he had never heard of a pro- posal to bomb Formosa prevent- ively, and that the air force was doomed anyway. Continuing. he said: "G e n e r a 1 Erereton never recommended an MacArtliur attack on Formosa to me and I know nothing of such a recom- mendation. It must have been of a most nebulous and superficial char- acter. No official record exists of it at headquarters.

That's the way it goes with these pesky sun spots, Styawart declares. One cycle is no more complete than one starts. It usually takes about 11 years for the maximum to be reached.

Wladyslaw Anders, commander of the Polish 2nd Corps in Italy, will soon lose his nationality. The news came over a Warsaw radio, which said that the Polish government has de- cided to apply in the Anders' case a 1838 law on activities detrimental to the state. Gen. Anders, now in Great Birtain, was a supporter of the Polish government in exile in London.

He made no attempt to conceal his anger. 'How the Brit- ish can dare such a thing! The lengths to which they will go to iang' on to the past.'" But he would not make a pub- ic statement regarding it, .he said, .even if .it developed British forces were using lend-lease against the Greeks. 3 Plead Guilty In Nipawin Bank Robbery PRINCE Albert, Sask., Sept. 30 men charged with robbing the Nipawin, Sask. branch of the Bank of Montreal of Sept. 14 Saturday pleaded guilty in Royal Canadian Mounted Police court here.
