Can withhold Relief from those who refuse to enlist in United states army hakki8buru.

Howard l. Russell state Secretary of Public assistance said the county boards could deny help to Bingle men who reject a Chance at military service under the nations extended defense program. He said he would not recommend such action but pointed out that a two year old regulation of his department permits a local Board to Cut off Relief when it thinks a Man has failed to explore All the possibilities of obtaining a livelihood. Tried and True Anita lamp a tear old car wifely carried Chester Wagner Oil a 0, trip through the Southern states. Wagner snid he had Only one serious breakdown a a cracked Axle. And a spare atle he carried with him solved that difficulty. The Only tiling we can add St the moment is that the Issue has not yet been determined. Xiv by Gand still has a Chance to perform Hia Miracle. Hitler appears to have Flung into the balance virtually All his remaining resources in a supreme Effort to Send his 225-mile Battle line smashing Over the French defenders into Paris. The unprecedented assault Force of 1,800,000 men we hich he la using against the French represents a German advantage of perhaps two to one a and 600.000 of these Are fresh troops which were sent in against the defenders Light Wing in the Argonne along with another 3,800 tanks. German pressure Lins been heaviest in three main sectors. These have been on the extreme ends of the Long front and in the Center. On the French left Wing the nazis have continued to try to effect a turning movement Down the coast. They succeeded in piercing the French line with 200 tanks and jamming some of these through to Rouen which is the port of Paris close to the Mouth of the Seine. The German infantry Wasny table to follow through after the tanks and thus a bad break in the French line was averted for the time being. The capture of Rouen would represent a grievous loss to the French for it not Only is one of Lite chief ports of the nation but is a great Center of distribution for Northern France. Many of the supplies of the capital pass through Rouen. Just at the Mouth of the Seine lies the great port of be Havre which the germans also Are eager to get. In the Center of the line the germans have kept hammering at positions on both sides of the Dis River in an Effort to open up this Valley route to Paris Over on the French right Wing he German attack in the Argonne Region with fresh troops appears to be for the purpose of trying to Hammer Down on the Marne River and follow this historic Stream through to the capital. Of these three main thrusts the Moat dangerous to Date has been that along the coast since it threatens to turn the French Wing put the ermans in Possession of be Havre and Rouen and swing a great claw about Paris from the West it is in this drive that the germans have reached one Point some 35 Miles from Paris. In itself this does t necessarily mean disaster for the old Kaiser Cam nearer the capital than that la 1914. Aka Xia tic to me even More dramatic than the unparalleled immensity of this bloody clash at arms la the time element involved. The comparatively Short period a maybe a Mere fortnight or so in which Hitler must win the War or Likely lose. The Mere fortnight which the allies must hold the Savage Rush of the German horde in order to establish a Good Chance for Victory. A Mer fortnight on which hang Hie life of empires. All this is premised on facts which you and i have discussed More than once before because of my insistence of their importance. On the one hand. We have Hitler equipped with the most powerful War machine Ever constructed. Most certainly threatening Quick annihilation to anything crossing its path but with virtually no resources of any kind with which to maintain i wonder machine. On the other hand the allies unprepared to stand up against this Avalanche but possessing Between them wealth and resource beyond dreams if they can Only hold the nazi onslaught Long enough to draw on those resource. French Premier Reyna and on May 22, declared that of Franco could a hold out for one month and we will hold out for whatever time i necessary we will have travelled three fourths of the Road to of course we know that Rey Naud was t trying to pin this thing to an exact period. Also he wok speaking before the Allied tragedy in Flanders. Still the purport of his remark remains the same for he meant that Hitler could t stand a Long War that the fuehrer would have hot his Bolt in perhaps a month.
