On October 17, 1781167 years
ago this week General George
Washington completed a mas
ter stroke of military strategy
that ended the war between
America and Great Britain.
Washington, arranging his
troops at New York as if to
launch a heavy attack, sudden
ly wheeled his army to the
west. He had clmost reached
Philadelphia before the British
were aware of his real aim.
By then it was too late. Wash
ington's armies lay across all
avenues of escape by land, and
the French fleet, which had
helped Washignton in his bat
tles, blocked escape by sea. It
was then that General Charles
Cornwallis surrendered the
British armies, conceding to
America the victory.
The new permit is folded to the
same size as the old single card.
The inside of the little folder has
become an application blank to

This is the first time such a form
has oxer been issued, the secre
He explained that renewal of
licenses by mall is a constant
source of difficulty because of
failure to include full Informa
tion or correct fee, resulting In
heavy correspondence from his
office. The self-contained renew
al form Is expected to eliminate
most of this trouble.
Another feature of the new li
cense is a space for recording

dor of the card Is similar to the
old one, with identifiweation.

to guarantee a twenty-five per

Bob Fletcher, field secretary for

provement association, spent
Wednesday, October 13, with the
county agent in getting these pro
