Events moved swiftly in those first few days. Immediately the city of Belgrade, perilously close to the border, and in the center of a plain, was declared an "open city" and that the Jugoslavs would not defend it. However, the first act of the Nazi bombers was to deliver a series of assaults on Belgrade, closely fol- lowed by similar attacks on Sara- jevo, Nis, Zagreb and other points of military importance to the invading army. The attack on Belgrade may or may not have put the city entirely hors du combat, but the immediate effect was to shut off all communi- cation with the outside world, and that caused the reports of the early phases of the new war to be frag- mentary and conflicting to the ut- most degree. One heard that the Jugoslavs were invading neighboring countries, had taken Flume, were bombing Sofia-- and in the same breath the Germans claimed the capture of Nis, the raz- ing of Belgrade, the cutting of vital railroad lines. Only the British reports seemed to carry conviction, together with those from Athens. The former pre- dicted a general withdrawal, and the latter told how that withdrawal was being carried out. But from the start it had been ex- pected by this country that Salonika would be defended, and that the British had 150,000 to 200,000 troops in that general neighborhood, and were prepared to make a serious de- fense of the port. Then the British announced that Salonika might fall, and gave rise to the general belief that perhaps the British forces were not so numerous or so strong as at first stated. Suddenly came the word that the British had only 60,000 to 90,000 troops on the scene, and that they were in the second line of defense, "ready to veer to east or west as the situation demanded." This was the answer to the dis- patches of the first few days, which did not reveal the British in contact with the enemy at any point. They were, in this report, placed in the vicinity of Katerine, which put them somewhat in the center, between two main forces of Greeks. Closely following this dispatch came a report from Berlin claiming that their troops had entered Sa]on- ika, and from Athens itself came the following terse, yet disquieting re- port: "The German blitz has split Greek forces in two with a wedge driven down west of Salonika, trapping un- counted thousands of troops defend- ing the line of the Truma river." Right on the heels of this report, unpleasant to Americans who were hoping that the Nazi attack on north- ern Greece might be halted, came the word from London "German troops have entered Salonlka follow- I HIGHLIGH showing long lines of truckloads of Serb and Crotian prisoners going along mountain roads, passing for- ward-moving Nazi divisions on the way. While the United States, led by President Roosevelt's promises of sympathy and aid to Jugoslavia and Greece during this invasion, was watching with anxiety and hope for some more favorable news, the gen- eral tone of opinion was that the story of Poland and Finland was be- Lug rewritten before their eyes. Americans interested in seeing something like this happen again scanned the news dispatches in vain for signs that the Nazi putsch was bogging down. The shock of the fall of Salonika was matched by the shock to learn that the British forces were rela- tively small, but the fact that they were in a reported "second line" gave some measure of hope to those anxiously watching the defense that "something might happen" when the second line was reached and went into action. FASCISTS: Move in Africa The war was not only taking a Nazi turn in Jugoslavia and Greece, but in northern Africa as well with combined Fascist-Nazi troops def- initely on the forward move again. As in a football game, the British had evidently "lost the ball," and unless the Anzacs could hold the Fascists "for downs," there might be a drive to a touchdown in Libya. It was odd that the reports of the advances in Libya by the Italo- German forces should have coincid- ed with dispatches saying that Gem Sir Archibald Wavell and large num- bers of "picked troops" had been sent to Greece. Whether this was true or not could not be learned, but if so, it was an interesting coincidence that the backward movement of the British in Libya tallied in time with the ru- mor that Wavell was gone to another field. The British, in their forward drive, had gone past Sidi Barrani to Derna, and thence to Bengasi, the Libyan capital. Photos of British troops taking down street signs, put- ting up their own, and other reports tended to the belief that Italy was knocked out of the war in Africa, and that it was "all over but the shouting." Suddenly Berlin reported a minor success on the Libyan front, and then, with equal suddenness Britain began announcing that there would be withdrawals, that Wavell's forces would pick their own line of defense and fall back to that. Came the fall of Bengasi, and then the fall of Derna, with the British still back-pedalling and fighting a ~rear-guard action all the way. In Eritrea and Ethiopia, however, the British continued their success, making mass attacks on Massaua, the sole remaining point of military importance. T S... in the news [ JACKSONVILLE, FIa.--A Negro stole a car, and the police knew the car was gone, and figured he'd soon run out of gas and abandon it. But the car kept moving, and was re- ported here, there, everywhere. They couldn't figure where he was getting "gas" money. They found Uncle Sam was providing. The man had found a WPA courtesy card in the car and was using it to get credit--to buy gas. NORFOLK, Va.--Coast guards- men were dragging waters off the Eastern Shore of Virginia, seeking wreckage of a huge patrol bomber thought to have carried 10 navy men in its crew to their deaths. Bodies of some of the crew had been found, and others were sought. The men were making a simple transfer flight when the accident happened. The accident was being investigated by naval authorities.

Most sensational of the -yes, even soup. Vs teaspoon pepper Most people eat 1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped stories was the claim that C.I.O. chieftains had been canvassing local unions throughout the United States seeking to find what sentiment, if any, there was for a general strike if the Bridges deportation move should be carried out. The Bridges case was in the hear- ing stage when this move was un- covered in Washington when Sidney Hillman of OPM was asked by a house committee investigating the national defense program to investi- gate the report. Mr. Hillman expressed surprise at the question and said he did not be- lieve that any such move was being carried out. Mr. Hillman said that Philip Murray, president of the C.I.O. and chairman of the Steel Workers Organizing committee, would not tolerate a strike against the defense program. This report by Mr. Hillman came just one day after Mr. Murray had made a surprise visit to the White House at the invitation of President Roosevelt, and then had made a fly- ing trip to Detroit, and later had an- nounced that the projected strike against U. S. Steel would be held in abeyance for a time, ostensibly to permit work by mediators and con- ciliators to avert the strike entirely. The report came from a mediator in New York that part of the coal strike difficulties had been settled. He said that the reopening of other mines had been delayed, and appar- ently the main difficulty was a dif- ference in attitude between Northern and Southern Appalachian mine op- erators concerning the demands of the United Mine Workers. The mediator said: "We are trying desperately to ef- fect a complete accord and to sta- bilize this backbone industry for a period of two years." He also said that the schism between the two geo- graphical portions of the operators group was causing the chief dif- ficulty. In the meantime there were signs that the mediation efforts in the Ford strike were bearing fruit, when Governor Van Wagoner of Michigan wired President Roosevelt as fol- lows: "Please do not approve certifica- tion of the Ford strike to the Defense Mediation Board before I have talked with you. I am in conference now with Philip Murray and James Dewey (the conciliator)." This made it look, at least for the moment, as though some settlement of the dispute, which has tied up $155,000,000 in defense material, might be at hand. SHIP AID: On Move The ships-for-Britain end of the aid law was well on the move, with the President formally seeking from congress the right to take posses- sion of the 36 Danish merchantmen now in American waters. Mr. Roosevelt said his advisers were convinced they had every right to take over the German and Italian ships, regardless of the protests of the two Axis governments. It was plain from the White House comment that the government pro- posed to combine the three groups of ships into one fleet, and in time to use the whole fleet in defense trans- port. The government will go far, it was believed, to keep this line of transport open and under way until deliveries begin on the 950 new mer- chant ships now being cormtructed. In addition, at the same time, the British announced that this country is turning over to them 10 United States coast guard cutters for aid in the war against Nazi subs. with their eyes, first of all. So, if you wish your soups to take on a party air, gar- nish them entic- ingly. Try sprin- kling with but- tered croutons, chopped parsley, a few grains of popcorn, toasted puffed cereals, minced chives, a dash of paprika, or a few tiny round crackers; or place a spoonful of whipped cream in the center. For extra goodness, why not try cheese in soup? It will draw a big stamp of approval, as you will see if you try Potato Cheese Soup. Here's the recipe: *Potato Cheese Soup. (See picture at top of column) 3 medium sized potatoes 2 cups boiling water 2 to 3 cups milk 3 tablespoons butter small onion 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons flour Pepper, cayenne 1 tablespoon parsley 1 cup cheese, grated Cock potatoes in boiling salted wa- tor until tender. Put through a strainer. Measure the liquid and add enough milk to make four cups. Scald. Melt the butter, add the finely chopped onion and simmer five minutes. Add the flour and sea- sonings and combine with the potato mixture Cook three minutes and strain, if desired. Add cheese and beat until smooth. Add chopped parsley, top with buttered croutons. Manhattan Clam Chowder. cup diced salt pork 2 cups diced potatoes 1 dry onion, diced 1 cup water 2 cups milk 1 can minced clams (about 1 cup) Salt and pepper Cook the diced pork and onion, stirring constantly 'til they are ten. der but not browned. Add the po- tatoes and water and simmer until the potatoes are t~nder. If the one cup of water is not sufficient to cov- er the potatoes, more should be add- ed. When the potatoes are tender, add the milk and clams and season- ings and heat thoroughly. Serve with crisp, salted crackers. One Dish Supper Soup. sA cup rice 1 cup chopped celery 2 small onions 1 green pepper 1 pint tomatoes 6 eggs cup cheese 3 cups water Salt Add choppea celery and onions to a kettle of boiling water.

M~ute tapioca, because of its thickening quality and attractive translucence, makes an excellent thickener. Once thickened to the desired consistency, cream soups should be kept warm over hot water. Evaporation caused by additional cooking may make them thick and pasty. U 4 cups milk 2 tablespoons butter cup grated cheese 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped Combine dry ingredients, onion, and milk in top of double boiler. Place over rapidly boiling water, bring to scalding point (allow 5 to 7 minutes), cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add remaining ingredi- ents; cook until cheese is melted. Serves 6.
