a third of the German cities
of Muenster and Aachen have
been destroyed or seriously
damaged by the RAF.
After detailing the damage In
those cities, the air ministry
news service declared that more
than 120 raids have been made
on Germany and nazi-occupied
territory in the past few weeks.

bomb . . . is shattered," the

that the war which they hoped
to wage on territory other than
their own is being brought to
their doorsteps."

"Caught in the Draft"), Albert
Dekker and Billy Gilbert.
The story concerns a clam

he marries and who becomes so
jealous of the outboard motor
