GO BACK to last spring, just
before Congress enacted the draft
law. At that time the army was
down to a post-war low of 560,000.
The re-enlistment rate had
fallen to a low point upon the
discharge of many soldiers who
had enlisted two, years or more
earlier to reap G.I. Bill benefits
and wanted no more army.

Suspense-full! That's why it
always has been and still is tops
among radio mysteries.
Steering away from the conven-
tional "blood and guts" sagas and
the proverbial "who-dunnit" se-
ries that inevitably remind me of
the soap box operas that are the
scourge of every radio listener,
Suspense has been presenting
mysteries with a twist-the type
of story you might find in a col-
lection of 0 Henry or DeMaupas-

to date, something from the pages
of the New Yorker.

During the war the periodicals,
mostly of a scientific and tech-

After the war the periodicals
were shipped to the U.S. from the

the Library of Congress. The last
shipment of about 1,000 journals
has just been received.
