Now it appears the volume of calls will be even heavier than we had anticipated. We have done and are doing all we can to make ready for these big rushes, but they are setting all- time records. Thousands of conversations vital to the Army and Navy — vital to the defense of this nation — go over the telephone lines each day, each night. Some of them may delay your calls.

Germany and tuly mark the first time major powrs hsve taken this action, although the United States has been in citfht wars- nine if you count the Revolution. 10 if you count the War Between the States. Only previous formal declaration of war against the United States was made by Tripoli in 1800. The catch on that statement ia other nations with which the United St;ites las fought either did not take formal action in declaring war, or were on tent to declare that "a state of war existed," or some such diplomatic lodge. The President's decision to withhold rom the public the full casualty lists and merely to inform the next of kin n each case is slightly different from he practice of the last war, though t is common practice in all coun- ries engaged in the present conflict. In the last war, there was a pub- ication known as "The Official Buletin," which carried casualty lists in lull, and this publication was dis- ributed to newspapers and officials of the government, and was posted n all post offices. A little larger ;han business letter paper size, the Bulletin was issued by the Commit- ee on Public Information, of which George Creel was civilian chairman, t varied in number of pages from day to day, contained all official or- oelieve that the necessary control of inflationary wages and inflationary prices so as to prevent disastrous inflation is of vital importance to the welfare of workers, as well as farmers and the nation as a whole. The fact is, the workers and farmers are the ones to suffer the most from inflation and deflation. This country will suffer if we do not deal effectively with this fundamental issue. 'If it Is fair to control the price of the farmers' products, which are the wages of farmers, it is fair to control the wages of industial laborers. 'We are in this war and we must win. That makes it all the more necessary that we have a real bill to control inflation and not an unfair discriminatory, piece-meal proposition that will not control inflation. '•The American Farm Bureau Federation stands ready to support constructive, fair legislation to control inflation, and we hope that congress will" take prompt action in enacting such legislation, making it applicable to labor as well as to others, ia order to prevent disaster to all economic groups, 1 ' !« Men's Shirtcroft PAJAMAS $•195 •1 I $95 to HICKOK BELTS or SUSPENDERS TALBOT'S t>in'S 'Wttccy *fim»t thoKo i?f* .vnui.' 4>ft Ituft C|s.*fi for Yo-rU fm.t tin*' t«r family »l TAtJRO'fS, Men's Cooper HOSE 25c ,o 49c Ladies Fitted Cases 98c up $>195 $-1095 to 12' Give Her a pair of NYLON HOSE All new shades and sizes $ 1.65 ,o 1.95 pair BEDSPREADS Full size spreods in assorted colors.

He said that was the healthiest po&ition for human IxjingB." When Robert read this, he thought, "So that ia Mr. Kerkekogi's OPINION, is it? And what doea a NOVELIST know about such things anyway? It sounds SILLY to me," and he went to his office ON THE BUS, as he always did, But John accepted Mr. Kerke- kogi's opinion as a FACT and when he got to his office- everybody laughed; * * * Don't think this is such a ridiculous happening. Many people have confused fact and opinion before. It's a very human thing to do—but not SAFE in times like these. You will read both FACTS and OPINIONS in your newspaper. It brings you both every day because your newspaper's JOB is to bring you ALL the news; to report honestly and accurately about what is going on in the world, without thinking of whether you like or dislike the news it reports; Almost always your newspaper makes it clear which part of the ixews is FACT, which part OPINION, After that, it is up to you to put your judgment to work separating the facts from the opinions, boiling both down into the INFORMATION you must have if you are to vote intelligently, know what to buy and where to buy it—be a self-governing citizen of a democratic country; In Germany, Itqly, Russia, Japan; a government agency decides what the people shall read and hear; Not so in America.
