']hey have undergone a rigorous course of training with their trainers at Fort Robinson, Nebraska, and have learned to maul and knock down victims by throwing their full weight like would-be tacklers. The canines are gifted with a keen hearing and sense of smell, and can detect or smell a person three hundred yards away on a pitch black night and that's more th1111 a b.nnBn can do unless he was bom in the Jt.mgle.

AN.APPROPRIATE END On September 3, ::.943', the -fourth anniversary of the en'try of France and Great Britain into this war, the ItalCHEF:S SPECIAL!. ian government bowed to the unconditional surrender tenns laid down by the United Na-, tions. It was an appropriate end of a campaign for the nation which stabbed falling France in the back. It may result in the Italian soldiers once again fighting beside the English and the Americans against Germany, as. they did in World War I. The surrender came with a suddenness which made it almost unbelievable, even though ,the abdication of Mussolini had clearly indicated that such an md was certain to come soon. It placed the Allies in a position where they can easily strike across the Adriatic to help the daring guerrilla Yugoslav patriot army. It left Naxi forces in occupied Greece facing the danger of being pinched off from their homeland. The Balkans are now squeezed between the AngloAmerican forces on one side and the advancing Russians on the other. ALLIED AIR FORCES MOBILE KITCHEN UNIT The Allies now have fine ports into which men cari be poured for the final land assault, and air bases closer. to the heart of Germany. The invasion road through the. Balkans and up the Danube is almost ready for use, if needed. Psychologically, Italy's surrender cannot help but have disastrous effects upon Hitler's satellite nations which jump Jed onto his bandwagon when Naziism appeared to be on the road to \\Orld conquest. A L L I ES G E T S E T Italian representatives of Marshall BQglio surrendered to the Allies in Sicily. But the surrender was not announced until five days later. This delay in putting a military armistice into effect gave the Allies time to send their forces into positions where they could quickly move into the conquered land and prevent to a large extent Gennan actions against the Italians. British and Canadian troops moved across Messina Strait @nd occupied the toe of Italy, with little apposition, on the very day that the surrender took place. The Americans cpietly moved up to positions along the Italian coast. Then, with his troops ready to swoop in, Gmeral Eisen hower granted a military armistice, the' Italians laid down their arms, and Allied troops quickly began to occupy the )conntrv. The Gennans fought back, and there were many reports of conflict between the Italians and the Germans. But the Allies had the advantage . Naples appeared about to fall to our forces. The Germans were reported to have seized oo'ntrol in Rane. FRANCE NEXT? Toulon, the 'once-great Fr!1ch naval b:..se, where a major part of the French fleet now lies scuttled in the harbor, and Mal' seilles, Mediterranean port, are now not far fron the advancing Allied forces. If they should be CiJPtured, it would give the Allies a chance to strike through southern France., northward up the Rhone Valley. Meanwhile, the aerial pounding of northern France and Germany continued. Air fields and railroad facilities received major attention--a possible indication that the Allies were .to break down the conmunication lines W1ich bolster the defenses which have barred so far a landing il1 l:tance. RECONSTRUCTION JOB The Allies will find a lot of \\Drk to do in Italy. '!he u.s. Army Air Fbrce has done a good job of softening up the Italians. Railroad facilities in Italy have been pounded so heavily that it undoubtedly will require tremendous efforts to put them back into use CAN BERLIN TAKE IT? Berlin is the youngest of Ell rope's major capitals. In the 14th century it was a small village. It has been occupied by invading annies three times, and was virtually wiped out by both the Swedes and the Russians as late as the 17th century. As a result of its youth and of the rebuilding which was necessary after enemy attacks:; the Gennan capital is modern Its streets are wide, its buildings canparatively new. ,It has none of the Gothic cathedrals or other ancient structures which adorn most Ellropean cities. Berlin apparently is going to retain its youthful appearance, thanks to the Royal Air Force. Berlin is being "Hamburged." It will take a lot of rebuilding to make it a livable city again after the RAF' s big Wellingt.ons and Lancasters and Halifaxes get through with their constant blockbuster From Berlin this week came reports which sounded worse than those which came from London during the height of the blitz in in the fall of 1940. Berlin newspapers reported that most of the capital had no gas to cook with and that a:nergency field ldtchens had been set up. NUIDerous places were listed as victims of heavy boolber raids. several goverrment agencies have moved to safer terri tory. Millions of Berliners have fled to the corm try to esca:pe the falling bombs. City camn.mications have been badly disrupted. During the "Battle of London," there was a saying, "London Can Take It." It now remains to be seen whether "Berlin Can Can Take It." C;.)

THE TYNDALL FROM THE SATURDAY EVENING POST WHAT AM FIGHTING FOR By PVT. ALBERT B. GERBER I AM Jewish, and perhaps that should be a sufficient answer for me. However, as I pause to reflect upon what I am fighting for, I realize that the eradication of Hitler and the termination of these modern Jewish pogroms and scourges make up only a minor part of the whole objective that caused me to volunteer for Army service. It is an emotion that is difficult to pu't into words, but perhaps telling about some of the concrete things that give rise to this abstract emotion will convey my idea of what I am fighting for. My present surroundings and what I am doing are indicative: Although, as stated, I am of Hebrew faith, I am sitting in what is usually re garded as a Christian chapel [there is another chapel reserved for Jewish services, but this one is closer to my barracks] reading Protestant religious literature-and thus came upon The" Link. Moreover, upon reading of this contest, I felt no hesi tancy in sending in my ideas. This is a very com forting and warming thought-that I, a Jew, can in this wonderful country enter a Protestant chapel or a Protestant contest without feeling there is anything wrong or amiss. Some time ago I moved to Washington, D.C. I enjoyed playing handball and, therefore, inves tigated the playing facilities available. I found that the Y. M. C. A. was most convenient and, consequently, I joined. After a while Randy Myers, secretary of the Y, asked me to join the membership committee and help recruit members. I'm afraid non-Jews can't, appreciate the feeling that I had-not of pride in being asked to be on a committee but in feeling that Jews were really welcome at a Christian association, and that I was being asked to go out and them. There was, however, no attempt to convert Jewish mem bers_ to a new religion-our own religious views were greatly respected. All the foregoing could, of course, be summed up under the heading Religious Tolerance and Free dom, but it is these concrete expressions of it that 1 am fighting for. Am I, then, entirely selfish in my personal war aims? t don't think so. I am very proud of my country's treatment of conscientious objectors. I don't want them to have to fight. One of the things I am fighting for is their right not to bear arms if, for religious reasons, they feel impelled to Pvt Albert B Gerber object. Or take the saluting of our flag. 1 am proud to salute it. But members of the Jehovah'e Witnesses sect feel that they cannot, in good faith -with God, salute a mundane emblem. The Supreme Court has .ruled that they need not. I am fighting for their right not to salute the flag. Of course, I am fighting for more than religious freedom. I want to see economic freedom for all. I don't mean this in the old-fashioned sense of the right to open a grocery store on a street corner. I am talking about unemployment compensation, old-age benefits, really pul::llic education-inclu<;iing university and professional training-and all the other things that will be necessary to give the in dividual economic security in this complex society. I don' t feel that we accomplished it in the past, but I am fighting for our right to achieve it, and my faith that it will be achieved in the future. To attain this goal, we shall need to preserve and enlarge another factor in the way of life that I am fighting for-often referred to as freedom of but really, today, freedom to communicate thoughts and ideas. Men who have ideas on how to construct economic security or freedom from want for all must have the right to explain their ideas, .to write about them, to broadcast them on the radio. Even if the idea is obviously unworkable-if this can ever really be so when we pause to think how society reacted to the ideas of Robert Fulton, the Wright brothers, Thomas Edison, and so on-we must allow its expression, if only so that the dignity of the man who gave birth to the idea should not be impaired. In other words, I am fighting for a progressive, humane American way of life-not the American way of life referred to by nostalgic reactionaries who want to go back to the status quo of ante 1929. I am fighting so that our river of democracy may roll on and wash away in its current more intol erances, more discriminations and.more inequities and iniquities. And someday I pray to God that our river of democracy shall the sea and join with similar rivers of other nations, so that this country, which I love so dearly, and all countries will be bathed always in the waters of common decency. The Special Service Office is desirous of contacting enlisted men or officers on this field who have had combat experience. Tyndall men who have seen act ion are asked to 1 eave the i r names at the Spec i a 1 Service Office or telephone Furnished by Special Service for use on Orientation Bulletin Boards

Anderson's tie-breaking homer in the eighth was that sharpfielding third baseman's first hit in more than six games. He caught the ball squarely and sent it roaring into deep center for one of the ],ongest hits ever made on this field.
