A in other words a Gillette said Quot it was possible in the1940 Campaign for $3,000,000 to be spent by the a cock eyed men for the democrats by the a red haired women for a Gillette a proposal would require each candidate to designate a committee to act As his fiscal agent. In reply to a question by senator Mead . As to whether this would prevent the Cio political action committee from raising a $700,000 Campaign fund in behalf of candidates Gillette said he thought this would be True unless one of the fiscal agents designated the As an agent.

He asked Gillette to consider a modification of his proposal to that extent. Senator Hatch . Said the proposals together with another by Gillette to prohibit the printing of Anonymous Campaign literature of a subversive or of a nature reflecting on any race or religion would be submitted to the full committee for consideration soon.

Heinzen interned by the germans returned to the United states in one of the diplomatic exchanges. 228 first Avenue be now tomorrow sportsman exhibit it bring the children open daily 9 . Welcome walk in supported by donations by Ralph Heinzen. The French underground is a hard reality a Clandestine Force which has been biting at the German Back for four years. Its present mobilized strength is 320,000 Well armed militants a million or More Quot reservists at the disposal of the Allied High command for a Day. As Long ago As August 1941, i saw the underground in its first offensive a the slaying of German soldiers officers on the blacked out streets of occupied Paris. Until my arrest in Vichy the Day the american forces landed in French North Africa nov. 7. 1942, i saw the underground engineering the a Grapevine Quot escapes of British american War prisoners chiefly aviators. Began As guerillas. The underground began As a guerilla Force whose chief i Ole was to take a steady toll of German lives in revenge. Its first killing was the Midnight stabbing of a German Soldier in the darkened exit of the Porte Dauphine sub Way station. Today it is virtually a corps of sabotage engineers. On a Day we can expect the underground to materially in disrupting German troop movements defences. Its role will be to Cut communications Dyna mite Bridges viaducts open dams destroy Power lines railroads to ambush the enemy report his concentration movements spy on his secret preparations. Its execution squads will Comer kill a Long list of blacklisted traitors to France. The underground in France is today composed of Many officers men of the disbanded French . Patriots from All walks of life All creeds All political beliefs whose Only crime was to hate Germany. For this their names were written on the Gestapo blacklists. There Are also thousands of boys in the Green uniforms of youth labor Camps who have chosen to join the underground rather than go to Germany As conscripts under the la Val Suckel Accord.

The Paris Lyons Mediterranean express most a famous of French trains still running was wrecked four times by the removal of rails. 4,400 arson attacks on French harvests. That activity has not been Vith out its toll of Patriot blood. Laval announced that in the same period 21,900 a a terrorists had been arrested his figures however included 19,000 common Law violators who patently never had any connection with the real underground.
