WASHINGTON—THE STOC K MAKKI T ha: be n t ing, in la t h i* kin ofT and en, that the war is near an end in Europe. It knows whereoi it speaks.
This latest trend toward optimism WI s started officially about ten days back when Lord Halifax, th' Br.tish ambas ador, called a per as conference to ay the war might end suddenly, that anything could happen in Germany now1 He would not have spoken without sound ground. The British have been ending men into Germany by parachute all along and these men have been getting back to Britain with eye-w It ness accounts. Anonvmou reports from London lately thus have pictured Germany as a madhou e ‘rom bombing
Hitler pretended in his speech that he was resting his ai nr , impliedly to irs et invasion by the British and Americans in Prance or the Lowlands. True, h< has about 40 unused d.visions there i leserve.* <a formidable force of 600,-C< ) in* r.,. He also ha tome unused
