Congress should be called together in

amendment to give us a new Bill of

In the meantime it seems there ain't
anything we can do about it:

A common practice is to make mass ai

Old Eisenhour and his supreme com
mand evidently have the stuff, and are
beginning to use it. The Hun hordes
are disentegrating under the most fear
ful smashing in history. The German
radio savs the Allied barrage exceeds
anything t'-at has ever gone befoi'e. It
admits a "strategy utterly new in the
history of warfare."
A Gorman war correspondent, Cliris

strategy which neither the German hi.u 1 :
command nor any other command ever
had to cone with."
He adds: "All military rules have gone
by the board. Our Hinterland is under
perpetual bombardment by enemy
air forces and artillery, even naval guns,
of an intensity never before matched el
even dreamed of."
It is pleasing- to contemplate that the
Lords of War, the invincible Junkers,
