General Sikorski’s Determination In a broadcast speech to the Polish Nation made from London i on .June 24, General Sikorski said: “Two divisions of the Polish Army were fighting near the Ma ginol Line. One part of the ar mored division of General Mac/ek operated on the most threatened section of the front, near Vitry-le- Francois. A brigade of the Carpa i tian Chasseurs, led by General Szyszko-Bohusz, fought heroically in Norway. While at the front I I have orders to our First (General jDuch) and Second (General Fru gal-) Infantry Divisions to break through towards Switzerland in case of a collapse of the Franch front. According to reports re ceived, our Second Division to gether with some elements of the | First Division has succeeded in carrying out this order, and won general admiration by its altitude. “Poland was the first country to fall victim to the enemy’s in vasion. Today, in spile of tremen dous losses and enormous hard ships, Poland remains the loyal Ally of Great Britain in Hi estrug gle for the ideals of liberty and democracy.. Merchandising As An Art The best retail stores in every community, large and small, are -interesting in an art, and .whether you enter them for a specific item or not, they are interesting much in the spirit of going through a museum or exposition. Seeing often means buying. This applies even to back-coun try stores nowadays, often those of remote cross-road villages; they have a stock nicely measured to the particular wants of their communities —from plows to sta tionery. Department stores in large cities reached a very high standard many years ago in the art of dis play, but the greatest progress | within the past decade is in food merchandising. These store keepers discovered that fruit, vegetables, and attract ive package goods lend themselves well to natural store decorations. In their study of merchandising psychology, of human habits and tendencies, they make an appeal to the sense of smell as well as that of the eye. For instance, an attractive j young woman will be toasting cheese sandwiches, another will be breving small cups of coffee; j both operations give forth an al luring odor throughout the store j—stars the gastric juices of the j customers al lowing they buy | more of these and other food items. Quite a contrast to the old gen ■ enral store. In winter, at least, there was no particular attempt at display save trays of dried vege tables on the sidewalk and wired bundles og sassafras; a new horse | collar hanging to a stick nailed against the door- jamb and a churn barrell filled with ax-handles. And there were the mixed odors of damp sugar, coal oil, prunes, cheese in a wire cage, rolling apples and sprouting potatoes up from the cellar; and an occasional whiff from a coop-full of live chickens out in front—if the door was open and the wind happened to be blowing in just the right di- I reel ion. There never was a good sermon on a long text. Jan Mateyko AN APPRECIATION By Rudolph Tarczyxski ! deem il my duly to mention particularly the creative genius of Malejko- that great Polish historian of the canvas whose masterpieces won for him univer sal acclaim. He was in fact both a painter and a historian, for he successfully portrayed to the world all the past glory of his native land. He was a most extra ordinary figure in the world of fine arts. Although at limes rather Italian in his technique, he never theless portrayed all the vivid beauty of Poland’s Golden Age, and of its earlier and later history, with a distinctive Polish treat ment of his subjects, and with re markable truthfulness. The an cient glory of the Renaissance was brought to life by his master ful brush. Free from a character istic Polish sentimentalism and sadness or melancholy, he gave to the world a display of titanic force, of a most wonderful arran gement in the treatment of color and the grouping of figures, and an expression of life worthy, in fact, of the mighty brush of Mi chelangelo. Oddly enough, although Malej ko studied al Cracow and Munich, neither of these schools influenced him in the least degree. He found his own creative world in the past, and enlivened il with people peculiarity his own. Il was justly , | called “the Malejko world.” He was the laureate painter of I the Paris Exposition. In 18(15 he was awarded the gold medal foe his “Skarga’s Sermon.” Two sim ilar awards followed for other , masterpieces. He became a corres ponding member of the Paris Art Institute. The cros sof the Legion of Honor was bestowed upon him. Western Europy finally acclaim l ed him as the greatest exponent j of the art of Tintoretto, Rubens, and even Michelangelo. Numerous great works remain as Poland’s heirloom from Malej ko. Many of these are canvasses I of considerable size His “Battle of Grunwald,” “Skarga’s Sermon,” The Homage of The Prussian Vassail” and “Autopor trait” are considered truly classic masterpieces. He was an accom plished portraitist, famed espe i eially for the expression which he gave to the eyes of his figures, a characteristic which no one was ! subsequently able to imitate. German Parachutists’ School in Poland The large training camp for 1 parachutists near Lublin, in Ger man ocupied Poland, was enlar ged recently to make room for i several thousands of young Ger i man soldiers, according to a con i fidential report received here by the Polish Information Center. The new contingents are com posed of boys appearing to be scarcely more than 17 years old. To keep secret the location of the training camp, several villages in the neighborhood were evacuated. Il is believed that a number of these young parachutists will be used in an attack upon England since there are present several English speaking officers.
