Back Cover:  The back cover of this issue YANK’s European Edition prints its first piece of four color work. The drawing is by Rudolph von Ripper, artist with the historical section of the Fifth Army, and shows American infantrymen resting in their position near the Mussolini Canal on the Anzio beachhead. All printed matter was purposely left off the page to make it suitable for framing or mailing home to the folks. From time to time YANK will print color reproductions of the work of other army artists. If you know of an artist doing really outstanding color art work on some phase of the war have him get in touch with YANK. The reproduction process will not damage the pictures.
