As chic as ever is the Duchess of
Windsor, who seems happy to be
on her way to the Bahamas, where
the Duke will soon rule. This new
photo was made at Bermuda.

Shortage of heavy machinery and guns at war games in Northern New York has made substitutions
and simulation necessary to carry on the maneuver s. Here is an infantry advance, preceded by "tanks."
There is one authentic tank and two Army trucks bearing huge signs proclaiming them to be tanks.

Wearing a Willkie button on his coat lapel, Alf M. Landon (left), who ran against President Roosevelt in
1936 and finished second best, is shown as he visited Wendell Willkie, the 1940 Republican presidential nom-
inee, at Colorado Springs, Colo. Landon told Willkie he believed there was a general trend toward him in the
corn belt area.

Ernest Jackson (above) ran
away from his Belleville, Ill., home
six years ago--when he was 13-i-
to make his way on his "own abil-
ity." He told friends he was "Jack
Hardy," an orphan. A Harvard
scholarship was his reward after
working his way through the San-
ta Fe, N. M., high school at odd
jobs. "I hope they won't take my
scholarship away from me," he.
said, after revealing his identity
and plans to visit his parents.

Enthusiastic yulngsters armed with toy guns unexpectedly reinforced the 137th Infantry, Kansas Na-
tional Guard, in the "capture" of the town of Pierz, Minn., during Fourth Army maneuvers at Camp Ripley,

These houses were tossed about like wooden chips when heavy rains drove the Watauga River from its
banks at Elizabethton, Tenn. At least 16 persons were dead in the wake of floods' which wrought heavy de-
struction in four Southern states.

Haven Roosevelt, son of John Roosevelt, was photographed for the
first time as a nurse carried him in a launch for a visit with his grand-
father, the President, at Nahant, Mass. Mr. Roosevelt stopped at Na-
hant on the yacht Potomac on his way to an inspection of the Boston
Navy yard. A Secret Service agent sits on guard.

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, bound for the Bahamas, where
the Duke will be Governor-General of the British colony, posed with a
cabin boy aboard the American liner Excalibur during the voyage from
Lisbon to Hamilton, Bermuda. The Duke and Duchess debarked at
Hamilton to transfer to another boat.

Neck-craning fans peer into the dugout at Chicago to glimpse Bob Feller (left), Iowa-born pitcher, and
Rollie Hemsley, also of the Cleveland Indians.

'-And so We Bid Farewell to this Beautiful City of Ann Arbor .
