' British soldiers run up the Union Jack once again in deserted Tobruk. The North African port has been held alternately by the British and the Axis. Miles away from the heavily-bombed port. Marshal Rommel's battered Afrika Korps continued to retreat before pursuing Allied air and land forces. This photo was radioed direct from Cairo to New York. (Central Prett) you see are in fine what cattle shape. I got acquainted with an Entrlish soldier whose home was at Oxford. He wanted me to go home with him but I did not get the chance. We did start one Sunday morning but had to turn back for fear of getting back to barracks late. He thought I would be interested in seeing some of the old buildings there. He was very much interest ed and seemed very well informed about America. He asked me about the Smoky Mountains, the Rhododendron Festival, the gar dens at Charleston, and numerous other questions. The educated Englishman is generally a great admirer of the generals of the Confederacy. Their opinion, or idea, of an American is now formed from the mannerisms and reactions of New York City. The reaction of New York to any important question of policy is regarded as the pulse of America, I noticed in an English paper a caution to the English that loud talking and bragging were not necessarily the indication of bad breeding. I always thought it was. I am ashamed . sometimes to be around a group of soldiers because of their loud and thoughtless criti cism of everything English, It seems to be a Yankee characteristic to be critical and overbearing. Or -ourse that is riot true in every ase. I ran into a Scotch boy 19 years lil, an RAF gunner with a bomb ve crew. He was in the Battle of Dunkirk. He. 'told me he was with i PToiind crew at that time; and ULrvU It The Mountaineer Stationery Department Has A LARGE STOCK OF Paper Clips Number One Size (13-8 inches long) 100 In Number Three Size (1 inch long) Package arge Paper Clamps, Brads, Round Head Fasteners in several sizes, and V-Shape Clips Several Sizes Of Nickel Plated THUMB TACKS Large Assortment Of Blue Steel PAPER CLAMPS THE MOUNTAINEER Stationery and Supplies for Office, Home and School? that the English Expeditionary Force was down to ten planes and could not get any more as all the planes based in England were be ing used to cover the evacuation He said they would take parts from different planes and put them together, and a pilot would try the plane out. If it flew he would take it up and fight. He told one story that interested me as it showed to what extremes the Germans went to wipe the English force out. He said that the ground force was working on the planes one evening at dusk, when sudden ly about fifty large dogs attacked them, The first he knew of the attack was when four dogs jerked him to the ground and began chew ing him. He had numerous largo scars about the hands, wrists, head and neck; so I suppose the story is true. Some of the men had their hands chewed completely off. British Tommy-gunners res cued them. He took my address and said he would write after the war. He seemed to be' a nice boy and from a good family. I couldn't understand all his Scotch talk. I had a rather pleasant expert ence lately. On the way in from a very strenuous night march, we stopped at a village to wait for transportation to our headquarters I was walking up the street look ing for a shop where T could get some hot tea as I was Wet to the skin and very cold. An elderly prentleman stopped me and asked if I would care to come to his house for a cup of tea. Of course, I readily accepted. I was taken into the kitchen, the old lady say inir the poor wet laddie should come where he could get warm I was shown an old claymore. When I told them my name they "mentioned the Scotch author (S. i. Crockett) and said I should read some of his books. The old trentleman told me the legend of the Campbell who slew the Boar. Their son won the D.S.C. in Egypt, When the bugle blew for the troops to assemble they told me to come hack any time I could ; that I would find a bed and something to eat always. The genuineness of their hnsnitality gave my spirits more of a lift than they had had for a long time. The old gentleman gave me Viis card before I left. It is: James S.

NO. 1259 Dec. 10-17. - S Land Is 700 miles away you go overboard from a sinking plane or ship, you've got to know where you are. A bad guess is likely to be your last guess. - You've got to understand sun and stars and wind and drift if you hope to endure days of thirst and hunger fight off storms and harks and steer a course to safety on white sand. Practical, applied knowledge of the kind that helps men survive the sea can also be a national life-saver on dry land. Because America's manufacturers know how, our booming war production :i the biggest in the world. Because A-icrica'a electric industry knows how, our war plants have available far more electric power than all the Axis countries combined five timet as much as this country had in the last war. And seven-eighths of all this vast sup ply of power is provided by the electric companies under business management. They've stepped power production up and up to meet all industrial demands. They've reduced rates to a point where the average American family gets twice as much electricity for its money as it did 10 to 15 years ago. These are the accomplishments of ex- perienced men and women who know their business because they learned it the American way by growing up in it and advancing on ability. These are the results of sound business management under; public regulation the system that has made America strong. You've got to know how to run a power-house or a rubber boat. There's . no room for inexperience in either! 6i,ina power & light COMPANY
