Japan is fighting nut only the United Klales and Britain, hut the Filipino:- loo—and any country of tall mountains and crack bush-fighters that held the U. S. Army at bay for three years ought to give a good ac- cnunt of itself no matter how many t! ousands of brown men Tokyo sends southward. * * * By WILLIS THORNTON Not Up and Down — Straight Ahead We Americans are extremists. We are all the way up or all the way down. When the Japanese sneak attack on lawaii hurt us so cruelly, many pco- )!e fell immediately to the depths. What? A big first-line battleship sunk? Is our whole Navy useless, outclassed ? When, ii few days later, the Army, Navy and Marine Corps took speedy revenge by sinking a Japanese battleship, cruiser, and destroyer, many jeoplu let their spirits leap correspondingly higher. Huh! That's more like it! Now we've got the range. Just do this to the rest of 'em! The war's as good as won!
