That saying, which you hear a mil-
lion times over here and under that
many different circumstances, fits
the American soldier's fighting abil-
ity all right, but that isn't the way
it's used. It refers to his constant
humor and ever-present knack for
getting on top of any given situation.
For instance, a couple of officers
stumbled upon a supply dump high
in the hills up toward the Cassino
front the other day. Nearby were
three doubhboys, dug in eomfor-
tably in homelike shelters with all
the food and equipment necessary.
It came from the supply dump.
Questioning reyealed the three
came from an infantry outfit which
had been in the line almost con-
stantly of recent months.
"What are you men doing here?"
asked one of the officers.
"Guarding the supply dump, sir,"
they replied.
"Where's your commanding offi-
"We don't know sir. We haven't
seen the lieutenant since he told us
to stay on guard here until we were
The officer looked at them sharply,
"And when was that?"
"Oh, that was Dec. 21, sir."
Just what happened to the lieu-
tenant no one knew. As to why the
three hadn't sent one man down to
find out the score and why they
hadn't tried to rejoin their outfit
in the combat line-well, their or-
ders were simple . . . to stay there
until relieved.
With all the food, clothing and
equipment they needed and no fight-
ing, the fact they didn't say anything

Hazards that the military flyer will

Walter R. Miles of Yale University at
the Sigma Xi national lecture, "Psy-
chology and Military Aviation," at
8 p.m. Monday in the Rackham Am-
One of the greatest psychological
problems that he knows of is when
the men areready to fight and then
do not have a chance at the enemy
in the air. Long stretches of readi-
ness, without combat service, may
also present severe stresses.

Kabalewsky and Mendelssohn's "Var-
iations Serieuses, Op. 54."

months was of course only the for-

Then there was the corporal who
worked in the photo developing lab-
oratory. One day they had an order
to print up hundreds of pictures of a
general in order that he might auto-
graph them and send them home.
The corporal didn't complain,
that is officially. But a couple of
Ihours later a captain walked into
the room and found him seated in
front of a drying wheel on which
the general's pictures were slowly

ous and spectacular leader ofeAllied
jungle fighters in Burma, was killed
recently in a plane crash, it was an-
nounced in London today.
A brief announcement from the
War Office said Wingate was killed
in Burma on March 24, and gave no
details of how death overtook the 41-
year-old British soldier who early
last year captured the world's imagi-
nation by leading a "ghost army" on
a four-months expedition deep inside
Japanese lines in Burma.

sity Organist, at 4:15 p.m. Friday in

has afforded opportunity to many
who wish to give attention to the
significance of Good Friday, though
they may be unable to attend church

suitable to the church year, and the
Lent season has especially offered
much inspiration to composers.

Meets His Mother" (from "The Sta-
tions of the Cross") and the "Cruci-
fixion" (Passion Symphony) by
Dupre, "Prologus Tragicus" by Karg-

His force covered more than 1,000
miles thorugh the deepest Burma
jungles, fought countless skirmishes
with enemy patrols and finally re-
turned to India, after suffering great
hardship, with vital information for
the Allied command.
Bobbing up here, there and every-
where to the consternation of the
Japanese, Wingate's raiders de-
stroyed 100 miles of railway at 70
different places along the Irrawaddy

Believes in Unorthodox
A- strict believer in the unorthodox,
Wingate hammered at the theory
that Allied troops-British storekeep-
ers as well as colonials-could be
quickly conditioned to fight in the
jungle better than the Japanese.
His recommendations were report-
ed to have played a part in the deci-
sions on strategy reached at the
Cairo conference of President Roose-
velt, Prime Minister Churchill and
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek last
December, and the decision at the
earlier Quebec conference of the
