No need to speculate about my possible reactions any More. With the vividness of a Nightmare i know How it feels to look a bomb in the face certainly All that i Ever cared to know about it. By the exact margin of 71 very Short paces i can sit Here Wiser but unscathed and still Tingle with a series of sensations which will be quite enough if they come Only once in a lifetime. Until today i was one of those who rather marvelled at the seemingly unnecessary Speed with which people in the Small finnish towns always dash for the shelters or the neighbouring Woods when the air alarms sound. Tonight i am cured once and forever of my ignorant boldness and my studied casualness. Hereafter the Only thing that will annoy me about any Tody s air alarm conduct will be if he can hike for safety faster than i can. Even if remarkably educational it is extremely unpleasant to lie on the ground looking up at a Bunch of five bombs which Are apparently coming directly Down upon you. 160 bombs poured on town. This was not the official schedule of the Odyssey upon which Wade Werner of the associated press and myself unwittingly embarked when we set out from Helsinki for Sor Tavala.

This morning when at last our train crawled into the Village of b near the Western coast of Lage Ladoga we some of the explanation. The soviet planes had raided b five times in three hours last night and had poured Down 160 bombs upon it. The station was a sad looking spectacle and Many of the streets too.

Britain on the other hand he said to the cheers of the crowd is fighting a crusade for Freedom and to abolish the spirit of militarism and accumulation of Arma ments which is pauper izing All Europe and not in the least Ger Many herself.

Blue Plains inmates to get better food after March 1 an egg a Day heavier soup and hot meals Are on the menu of the Home for the aged and infirm be ginning March 1, it was announced last night by Frank b. Haskell superintendent. The revised and More nutritious menu or. Haskell intimated is the result of the recent unexpected visit to the institution by mrs. Franklin d. Roosevelt and the subsequent investigation of the Home by the pub Lic health subcommittee of the House District committee. Or. Haskell said that in the past the More than 700 old and almost helpless inmates because of the stringent allowances for food and maintenance at the institution had been allowed an egg at every seventh meal and have not been served heavier soups at supper. What do you mean by heavier soup asked a reporter. Do you serve these old people consomme no said supt. Haskell i mean that when we have bean soup there will be More Beans in it when we have pea soup there will be More peas in it. Complaints had before i the House subcommittee that meals had been served cold to the in mates. Or. Haskell said this was More or less True because the meals were served first and the inmates were called in afterwards to take their seats at the table. When they reached the table he said the meals were usually cold. But beginning March 1, supt. Haskell declared there will be a order of procedure. First of All he declared eggs Are to be served at every breakfast. Secondly he pointed out the old folks at the Home must be seated before the meals Are served so that no matter How slow an inmate is in reaching the table he will have a hot meal. Or. Haskell explained that health department physicians As a result of recent orders had already examined about 60 of the 130 bed Ridden patients in the infirmary at the Home and had failed so far to find any cases of contagious diseases.

By the associated press. Munich feb. 24.adolf Hitler cried out tonight that Germany will fight until the terror of the Pluto Racies has been broken declared the three mighty states of Russia Italy and Japan to be his friends and proclaimed his Trust that god is with him and his nazi Reich. To his old guard in an hours speech broadcast Over the world the fuehrer asserted the hand of Providence saved him from death in a bomb explosion in this very City last november 8 and declared the same Providence has especially blessed us for six years. Sounding the world War Battle cry of Imperial Germany Gott Mit uns the fuehrer shouted that Germany was fighting against the idea that one or two Peoples of the Earth should have everything. God did not make the world for englishmen alone to you to unit Providence would have blessed us Only to drop us he asked. There is a god he creates people with equal rights. Stronger than 1914 Reich. Today s Germany he said is stronger in every Way than the Imperial Reich of 1914but, especially in its leadership. Preceded by the blood stained Flag which headed his marchers in the Beer cellar Putsch of 1923 and surrounded by old party fighters. Hitler came to Munich s Hauf Brau Hall tonight to commemorate the founding of the nazi party and its adoption of a 25-Point program 20 years ago. It was his first speech in Munich since the Burger bauhaus explosion wrecked the scene of the original Beer cellar plot and killed eight per sons shortly after Hitler had left. On the eve of United states undersecretary of state Sumner Welles arrival in Europe for a feeling out of possible ways to peace the fuehrer gave a defiant War message to his nation and to the world threatening to smash any one who seeks to deny Germany her rightful living space leering at these chamberlains and their top hats sneering at Winston Churchill and disdaining to reveal specific War Aims. He did mention his terms prior to the Start of the War and de scribed them As modest Security of our living space return of our colonies. But his present Price for peace went unnamed. Not destined to be slaves. What we Are fighting against he shouted admit cries of approval is the idea that one or two Peoples of the Earth should have everything. God did t make the world for englishmen alone it simply cannot be that the German people Are destined to be slaves of the English and French. Significantly Hitler reverted to his Early War practice of leaving France almost out of his strictures coming Back to 1914, he intimated Germany would have won the world War had he been at the Helm. The nation s leaders then he declared were second rate. But today we All know that neither militarily nor economically can Germany be Defeated. The decisive thing is leadership. More than in any recent speech the. Fuehrer claimed god As his ally the ally of the German people. An awed hush fell Over his frequently noisy listeners when he took them Back to the night of the blast in the Burger Drahaus and told them solemnly Only a few months ago in a very special Way i experienced the hand of Providence. Invokes friendships. Again Hitler invoked his Friend ship with soviet Russia and Italy and this time he spoke in the same breath of Japan. Three mighty nations which were German yes enemies in 1914 Are Friendly benevolently Neutral he said. This was just one of the reasons he gave Why it cannot be otherwise see Hitler Page it Jown Dow in tannic Kate j learn to swot Straw n what my Goin to 00 with a Twat Mau sack j s 4 of j reciprocal trap no accurate figures available on Relief needs Bondy says welfare chief does t know How much Money he needs for adequate program first of a series.

Roosevelt race with Garner in Illinois assured Bankhead urges president to reveal third term plans by g. Gould Lincoln. Roosevelt against gamer presi Dent against vice president in the Illinois presidential preferential primary on april 9 was assured when the deadline for withdrawals passed at Midnight last night. No word came from the president or his backers according to dispatches from Springfield 111. Unless the decision of the Illinois Secretary of state should be upset by action of the state certifying Board last night stands As the last moment for withdrawals. The Board will meet March 5. Included in its membership Are the governor and attorney general. While Illinois presents this con test in the democratic preference primary Thomas e. Dewey of York remains the sole outstanding figure in the Republican race there. Neither senator Taft of Ohio nor senator Vanderberg of Illinois was willing to enter the primary.

Senator Bankhead asserted that if or. Roosevelt should seek re nomination then he can have it without much question. The Ala Bama senator added people Don t like second choices and As Long As or. Roosevelt is at Large in the situation there is no Way for the people to make up their minds on other candidates. There can be no test of sentiment so Long As the president remains silent. First Deal plea. Senator Bankhead is the first Deal senator to suggest that or. Roosevelt declare his intentions. Similar suggestions were made last week by senators Johnson. Demo crat of Colorado and Mccarran Democrat of Nevada. The president s silence has effectively hog tied All other democratic presidential possibilities except vice president Garner. That goes for postmaster general James a. Farley even though his name has been entered in the Massachusetts primary. The democratic leaders in that state insisted they were for Roosevelt first if the president should become a candidate. Neither Paul v. Mcnutt of Indi Ana. Federal Security administrator nor senator Burton k. Wheeler of Montana for example have entered any contests for Delegate support. Only the vice president has turned up As a Bona fide open and above Board contestant against or. Roose velt.
