2 Apartments in Block
Robbed of Almost $300
Two apartments in the 5000
block of First street N.W. were
robbed over the week end of al
most $300 in money and valuables
while the occupants were out of
town.
William E. Siddall of 5050 First
street, a telephone company em
ploye, told police his third-floor
apartment was entered some time
between 9 a.m., Saturday, and
9:50 o’clock last night.
Mr. Siddall said a thief took
$10 in cash, his wife’s wrist watch
and lapel watch, a gold ring with
four pearls, a sapphire ring with
four small diamonds and two opal
rings, one with eight small dia
monds. The loss was estimated
at $200.
Albert T. George, 53, a contract
ing decorator, said his third-floor
apartment at 5061 First street had
been entered. He told police the
thief apparently took a large suit
case, filled it with valuables and
left. Items missing included a
glass bank containing $15, a gold
pocket watch, 15 shirts, a radio
and a gold ring. His losses
amounted to about $100.

New Heroism of 'Colonel Mike'
Just Typical, D. C. Friends Say
Big, blond Lt. Col. John “Mike"
Michaelis, who led the 27th Regi
mental Combat Team in blasting
to bits 600 attacking North
Korean Com
munists, Is a
soldier who
knows how to
live danger
ously.
As executive
officer of a par
achute infan
try regiment of
the 101st Air
borne Division
he jumped into
Normandy i n
the pre-dawn
hours of D-day,
col. Michaoiii. June 6, 1944.
Five minutes after his outfit
floated to the ground, his com
manding officer w'as seriously
wounded. Col. Michaelis, whose
home is in Lancaster, Pa., took
over and led his men to their ob
jective. He soon was promoted
to colon* one of the Army’s
youngest ai, 32. (He dropped back
to his permanent rank of lieu
tenant colonel at the close of the
war.)
Later He participated in the
Ardennes forest action—the Battle
of the Bulge—with the by-then
famous 101st. Wounded twice, he
won the Bronze Star with oak-leaf
cluster and was decorated by the
Belgian and French governments.
He also holds the Legion of Merit.
He served in Washington for
four years after World War II
and was an aide to Gen. Eisen
hower while the general was Chief
of Staff. Friends here say they
are not surprised at his latest
exploit. “That’s what you’d ex
pect of Mike,” they say.
The colonel’s 1st Battalion had
returned late last Wednesday
night from an armored raid 22
miles behind North Korean lines.
The next morning the enemy at
tacked an artillery battery near
the regimental command post,
catching the weary Americans by
surprise.
About 250 Reds first made con
tact at 7 a.m. Two hours later,
after bitter fighting, the enemy
brought up 600 more troops. The
American artillery unit fired its
big 155 mm. guns point-blank.
Many of the Communists ran for
cover in a little mud hut village.
There they were annihilated.
Hoarding is foolish. Despite
the fighting in Korea there is no
immediate prospect of food ra
tioning or shortages. Don’t hoard.:

YOU can see this man has made his
mark in life, and while his heart’s
still young.
You can tell he likes action for his money
— that he knows a fine car needn’t be the
most expensive to give the greatest value.
!\es, such are the things you know of any
man, when you note that his car is a
Roadmaster.
Follow him on his spirited way as he pilots
this lively motorcar through traffic. Even
the lightweights are no match for this road
steady husky — not with the 152-horse
power straight-eight Fireball engine that
purrs beneath its bonnet.
Tune In Henry J. Taylor, ABC Network, every Monday evening,
Maneuver beside him at the next stop light.
Then just try to get away as smoothly,
swiftly and silently as Dynaflow Drive
gets his Roadmaster going — and keeps
it rolling without shifting, even automati
cally.
But don’t waste time merely envying the
man in this great car! Why not emu
late him?
With all its outsize room, interior luxury
and exterior grace—with all its front-rank
spend, you couldn’t make a more fortu
nate buy in the fine-car field.
So we suggest you try a few minutes be
hind the wheel. We’re confident they will
convince you that Roadmaster has every
thing you could ever ask for in any motor
car — although your Buick dealer asks a
good bit less for Roadmaster than you
might pay for other top-line cars.
