PAJAMAS BRING LUCK:
Gift of Girl Fr
Safe Jumps fo
By KENNETH L. DIXON
Associated Press Correspondent
IN BELGIUM, Jan. 6.-(..P)-That
pair of pink and blue pajamas has
done it again for Capt. Albert E.
Milloy of Hattiesburg, Miss., a para-
trooper. So it's about time to tellj
their story of charm.l
It should be explained that the
pajamas are charmed-not charm-
ing-although, on the other hand,
I certainly have no intention of mak-
ing any snide remarks about any,
paratrooper's wearing apparel. They
may be charming to him, but that's
strictly a personal matter.
Has Fought in Many Countries
Anyhow, Albert has fought this
war for a couple of years in some
half dozen different lands which is
enough to make the ordinary guy
slightly superstitious, if not more so.
And paratroopers generally are con-
sidered somewhat extraordinary in
the matter of living on luck.
A member of the 82nd Airborne
Division, Captain Milloy now is help-
ing buck back the German bulge into
Belgium, which is where the most
recent incident occurred-but that's
getting ahead of the story.
Back in Ft. Benning, Ga., in what
now is known to members of the
82nd as "the old country," Albert
received this pair of pajamas from
Miss Frances Barron, a Hattiesburg
girl who, according to Albert, has
brown hair and "makes the average
pin-up girl look puny."
Jumps in Pajamas
Came the morning when he was
scheduled to make his first jump
there. He overslept. Rudely awak-
ened at the last minute, he pulled a
pair of coveralls over his pajas and,
thus attired a short time later, he
yelled, "Geronimo," and hit the silk.
The jump was successful. Not be-
ing one to crack such an obvious
omen of good fortune in the teeth,
Milloy promptly made the pajamas
a permanent part of his jumping
Since then, he has donned the
pajamas before jumping into at least
six countries including Sicily, Italy
and Holland. He has spent 275 odd
days in combat and has had more
close calls than any six men could be
expected to survive. He gives the
pajamas all the credit.
Shortlyafter the Salerno jump, a
155 mm. shell struck squarely in the
roof of his dugout. "It was a nice life
while it lasted," groaned Albert to a
sergeant lying alongside him in that
split second as they awaited the
blast. But it was a dud.
Magic ,Still Works
At the Anzio beachhead, the pa-
jamas were frayed and worn, but still
their magic worked. Three times
there, Albert had houses collapse on
top of him from shellings and various
things. His hair got mussed.
Most of the time overseas, Captain
Milloy commanded C Company of
the 504th which had the lowest cas-
ualty rate in the regiment. When he
was transferred to another company,
they begged him to leave his miracu-
lous pajamas hanging in Company
C's orderly room.
Famous Article Stays with Him
Gently, but firmly, Albert explained
that Frances had given those pajam-
as to him-and that he would as soon
leave his right arm nailed to the wall
as those threadbare pajamas.

Vladimir Horowitz, Russian-Ameri-
can pianist, who will be heard in the
i sixth Choral Union Concert at 8:30
p.m. Monday at Hill Auditorium, is
searching diligently for piano music
by American composers.
He finds that there are surprisingly
few compositions of concert length by
Americans, but he feels that the
smaller pieces are excellent. "Ameri-
cans have a wonderful sense of style,
structure and melody," he believes.
