He only grumbled more about his legs not being as young as they used to be. Said this was a young man’s world, and things like that. Granny lost her patience. “You’re 44 hale and hearty” she said,“ what’8 got into you, ”man? a juicy windfall. "Come on in I” shouted Grand-dad, in his ele­ment. And pretty soon you couldn’t seethe grass for khaki I That started i t !“Drop in anytime ”said Grand-dad. “Granny and me’U be glad to see you ."And most nights now v .for h eV eteran The fact was the war had got into Grand-dad. His little cottage was on the country road to the big camp at L-------.And many’s the time he leaned over the gate and watched the troops walking into town. “Grand boys” he’d say wistfully. “Wish I was young enough to do my bit again. What's the good of an Old chap like me ?"One warm evening a young corporal passing the cottage called out,"Looks cool in your garden, mister I ”And Grand­dad called back eagerly, “Well, income and sit a bit. “Doing yourself well ”called the corporal’s pals as they passed a little later, seeing him under the apple tree munching you’ll find half a dozen or more soldiers making themselves at home. Writing letters at the roundtable in the parlour, or playing the old piano, while Granny darns a sock or sews on a button for someone. Grand-dad isn't fed up now !He and Granny are so happy to feel they're doing something for “the young ’uns.” It doesn’t need wealth or strength to give true service to others. It’s the willing spirit that really counts.

Rommel and his Afrika Korps are fleeing in disorder. That, surely, is the best news we have had since the w'ar began. Whatever difficul­ties we have yet to face we have cause for great rejoicing today. For rejoicing and for heartfelt thanks. We owe General Mont­gomery and his Eighth Army, the RAF and the Navy a deep debt of gratitude and pride. This time the collaboration be­tween our forces land,on in the air, and at sea has been perfect. The battle is being fought as one action, extending, one may say, from Rommel’s supply bases in North Italy to North Africa. The full force of Allied air striking power has been concentrated to prepare the way for the Eighth Army’s gallant struggle. Our light bombers and fighter bombers have cease­lessly harassed the enemy’s trans­port, while our fighters have pro­vided a protective screen for our advance. This battle is not a battle ]6i Egypt. It is not one for territorial gains. It is a battle for the des­truction of the Axis power in Africa by consequence, for the control of the Mediterranean by further consequence, for. the relief of Russia. It is therefore no “side­show,” abut central, a decisive battle of the war. This triumph —for it would appear to be no less— should in­spire everyone concerned with the war effort to still greater achieve­ments. For the first time in this war a German army is really on the run. That should bean inspiration and a challenge to us all. Hitler and his chiefs see today, more grimly marked than ever before, the shadow of their doom. But our powers for work must be intensified. There must be no slacking now. In the factory, the workshop, the ship­yard— in all places where victory can be hastened —we must not shame our men in the desert. We are on the move. Let us rejoice —and work as never before.

The airgraph staff at the London G.P.O. has been trebled to handle the Christ­mas airgraph mail to the Middle East. The latesi posting date for Christmas delivery is November 16, U.S .cut tapered for the Commandos US. War Department•“ hustle ”to get 400 out­board engines to Britain for the Commandos within five days is described in “American Maga­zine ’’by Lieutenant-General Somervell. IT.S Army supply chief. “One Thursday,” he writes, “General Marshall, just back from England, phoned that he had promised to deliver 400 out­board motors for the Com­mandos to Lord Louis Mount-batten. “Perhaps they wanted them for the Dieppe raid. We didn’t ask. “While one officer flew to a factory, another telephoned orders to release the engines and the metal needed. “They were on the Atlantic on Monday.” Tj'lIRE guards at business premises must not expect sheets, pillow-cases or towels. They should bring these with them. The Ministry of Home Security says this in a circular to local authorities laying down for the first time the minimum of amenities to be provided. Local authorities must now see that each person doing duty has abed or bunk, and airspace of 200 cubic feet, or a floor area of 20 square feet The horizontal distance between beds must beat least 6ft. ___________________ ,_____ . A pallet, pillow and, where possible, three blankets must be -available. Adequate light­ing, heating and washing facili­ties should be provided. The local authority, It is stated, must be satisfied that the personal comforts of the sexes are up to the standard sot out in the circular. A separate recreation room, apart from the sleeping room, is urged. While these facilities are obli­gatory, it is suggested that if there is no canteen, occupiers of premises should provide means of boiling water -and warming food. Expenditure incurred in this way will rank for income tax relief C.O. “COME OR BE “AUSTERITY” POPPIES FOR NOVEMBER 11 Thirty-six million “austerity ”poppies, ready for sale on November 11, are made of economical material—with a cardboard instead of a wire stalk and a printed paper instead of a metal centre Only four million will be of the former silken type. So far 350,000 women have volunteered to sell poppies—but more sellers are needed. MINERS' SPURT Mr. T. Tranter, of Littleton Colliery, Cannock, who was a delegate to the meeting at which Mr. Churchill ad­dressed the miners, said yes­terday. “On Monday and Tues­day more tubs were infilled my district than in any two days before. Now the miners feel they are equal to the men in the Forces and will get their fair share of honour.” »>Anyone not now doing forty- eight hours’’ part-time Civil De­ fence work a month, and who does not belong to one of the exempted classes will find be­fore long that he or she will be directed by the Ministry to undertake such work. It will be much better if they come as volunteers.” Mr. Herbert Morrison said this at Holyhead yesterday. “The newcomers must putin their full turn of duty without hanging back or evasion,” he said. “Their comrades will wel­come them Mr. Morrison revealed that more than 100,000 men and women have been directed into part-time Civil Defence to com­pensate for whole-time workers released for work in war fac­tories, but more are required. RIVALRY SPEEDS UP PRODUCTION \VroMEN in nundreds of fac- tories”* in the London area are speeding up production by organised competition begun last month by the London Women’s Parliament. Factories are competing against factories and depart­ments against departments, all in friendly rivalry. Housewives are organising their districts and producing fuel and labour-saving ideas, and more nurseries are being opened so that young mothers can enter industry. The factory and individual winners of the contests will ,be known next month. Doing Men’s Jobs In one North London factory the clerical staff have released a number of women for the Forces and for factory work by reor­ ganisation. They are also arranging to do overtime on Sundays. In Acton women are working with the management and the Joint Production Committee to obtain training for women in jobs formerly done almost ex­clusively by men. They are learning to set their own machines, thus releasing more men for war work. HE RUNS STRANGEST FACTORY (RAVING money, not to make it, is the purpose of the most unusual “factory ”in the country, run by Mr. D. Foggan, head pharmacist at the Royal Victoria Infirmary at New- castle-on-Tyne. Because the hospital is entirely dependent on voluntary subscriptions. Mr. Foggan makes anything he can as long as it is cheaper than buying, from the open market. Ointments, tablets, pills, and malt extracts are products only to be expected in the pro­ gramme, but the enterprise does not stop at that. Floor-polish, scrubbing powde.s and ink are included m his output. In another department a man is engaged on making splints. Instrument repairs are also done in the hospital. And all these items are Just sidelines besides the daily steri­ lising, dispensing and store- keeping which comes under Mr Foggan jurisdiction.s Three trains in station collision An electric train bound for Sutton. Surrey, crashed into the rear of a stationary train in Waddon, Surrey, station before daybreak yesterday. The driver of the Sutton train was killed and a number of passengers in­jured. Three trains were involved in the crash. Two were stationary and it was into the rear of one of them that the SuttoA bound train crashed. Coaches were damaged and derailed and they in turn crashed into the third train. LONDONS BUS BAN London will not have priority bus tickets for war workers be­cause, according to the Regional Traffic Commissioner there would be “so many priorities there would be no priority for anyone.” WOMAN CHIEF IN NAZI SPY RING\ CHILIAN woman, Isabel Pederzit is named as a chief in the Nazi spy ring in the U.S. Government memorandum "German Espionage in Chile.” Head of the spy ring is Lud­wig von Bohlen, air attache at the German Embassy in Santi­ago. The woman maintained close relations with the espion­age organisation and all Nazi agents were instructed to com­municate with her. The identity of certain Ger­man agents operating in Chile it is stated, was established in a "positive manner ”by the interception of messages sent out by a secret transmitting station in Valparaiso. The illegal Valparaiso radio transmitted information sent by Axis agents in Chile, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala and the United States. The memorandum proves that espionage activities in Chile were centred in the German shipping companies established in the country, and that the secret radio was setup under the direction of Friedrich von Schultz Hausmann, general manager of the Norddeutscher- Lloyd Line. Berlin was supplied with com­pleted details of cargoes of Chilian steamers, including that of the Tolton, which was after­ wards sunk.
