A news heading in Tuesday’s "News” says, “Flies to Receive Aviation Award.” If flies are used in this war’s defense strategy, that is something unique. It would seem to be a better plan to drop a few bee hives on Jap transports or on their advancing columns. That ought to keep the Nipponese too busy to bother about further Invasion. ♦ * * The dish-faced, slant-eyed, buck-toothed sons of Heaven ran into something in the Macassar Strait when the wild men of Borneo fighting beside the Yanks destroyed a Plotilla of Jap vessels on their way attack Allied strongholds. Let us hope to have more news of this character. ♦ * * Newspapers are not supposed to print anything concerning movements of troops or military equipment, which is only asking what is reasonabl...

What Do You Think T Know Your Neiqhbor Big cities have a reputation for being places where near neighbors seldom know each other. Apartments, row on row, somehow can be just as isolated from each other by six-inch partitions as remote Montana ranch homes are isolated from each other by mountain ranges.
