    NEARLY 300 BRITISH SEAMEN, stationed in Asbury Park, will be Christmas dinner guests of North Jer­ sey residents as a result of a cam­ paign by the Newark Sunday Call... local folks who wish to entertain the visitors, or our own soldiers, should communicate with Mrs. A. S. Kinney at Allenhurst 2168 . . . she makes the arrangements on behalf of the U. S. O. . . . English rations, which the British seamen observe though in As­ bury Park, are a far cry from an American Christmas dinner this year . . . one British tar couldn’t be­ lieve his ears when he heard a counter­ man in an Asbury Park diner tell him he could have two eggs, “and two more besides if you want them” . . . the English ration is two eggs a morfjh . . . Quitei a few Belmar resi­ dents were hosts to the sailors on Thanksgiving. . . .

    Odds and Ends . . . BILL SUTPHIN, who will retire from Congress with the Christmas recess, may accept a position with a naval concern because of his experience as a member of the naval affairs com­ mittee. . . . Secretary Stimson reports Germans are dropping thousands of spikes in North Africa, hoping to im­ pair the tires of Americon army ve­ hicles . . .
