FOLLIARD in Wash- I ington Post: "On the basis of its record, the German army of 1940 is the greatest military force of modern times- Actually, it is better than even its leaders thought it was, a faot illustrated by the circumstances that it has always achieved its objectives ahead of the time table. "True, the Germans always have out- numbered their foe and likewise always have had a superiority in weapons, par- ticularly planes and tanks. "But that isn't the whole answer to their seeming invincibility. The German army is a marvel of coordination, from Hitler down to the rawest rookie. Their staff work, according to military men, has been superb. And no less brilliant has been the work of the Nazi expert who gives Hitler the green light on weather.

ICARL8BAD CAVERN BATS From now until October I visitors to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico [will be treated to one of the strangest natural wonders which America has to offer, the bat spectacle. Each eve- ning at dusk during the sum- mer months millions of bats stream upward from the cav- erns to make their nightly foray upon the desert insects. The flight outward lasts for three hours during the long twilight, and so vast is the number of bats that from the ' distance of a half mile or more I their appearance is tha,t of an ascending spiral of smoke. It was the flight of the bats which first led to the dis- jcovery of the caverns by cow- |boy Jim White in 1901. Seeing I the dark column rising from tthe ground, he investigated (and found a natural opening leading down into what later proved to be the tremendous caverns. Geologists estimate that the limestone from which the cav- erns were carved was laid down some two hundred mil- lion years ago when the region was an in...

There comes in the life of every young person a day when, forced out upon his own, he stands facing prob- lems of the future. A child in experience, an aduit in feeling and desire, he looks for some- one and something that will sustain him while he strug- gles to make a place for him- self in the world.

Power came to them not from outside themselves but from within, according to their faith. So it will be with you Men lifted themselves out of the mire of earth's begin ning on the strength of an in- ner desire for betterment that leaned hard on faith, nothing else.
