Neither of those terms expresses our feelings today. "I" represents onlyjme person, "We" may mean only two or a few persons. Our slogan now is WE-ALL, which means every Joyal individual in the United States, We are facing a long, hard job, but when the United States decides to fight for a cause, it is in terms of WE-ALL, and nothing can or will stop us, President Roosevelt, our Commander-in-Chief, can be certain that WE-ALL are back of him, determined to protect our country, our form of government, and the freedoms which we cherish. President, International Business Machines Corporation A Hard Lesson in Diplomacy Uncle Sam Is Stabbed From Behind by Japs By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON - The United Stales is notoriously bad at -diplomacy. We have had our diplomatic knuckles whanged at nearly every international council table since the first of the nineteenth century. We haye been hood-winked, badgered, backslapped, sidestepped and out-talked by more nations than you coul wave a switch at (and it was only when we substituted a "big slick" for that switch lhat we ever got listened to at all). But never in the history of American diplomacy have we ever been taken like Japan took us in those hours before and during the opening of the war in the Pacific. To go back a hundred years or so, the United States first took cognizance of the' far Pacific in 1833 when it signed its first far eastern treaty with Siam. Twenty years later, Commodore Perry hammered on the doors of Nippon and opened them to western civilization. If he hadn't, Japan might still be the ingrown toenail of the Pacific, subject to the same decay that afflicts all civilizations whose doors are barred against the ideas and ideals of world progress. Japan unfortunately absorbed quickly. Ambition flowered in the Land of the Rising Sun, and so rapidly that within a litlle more than 60 years, at the council table with the United States and Great Britain, this land laid the groundwork for the attack on Pearl Harbor. The opening guns were not fired on Pearl Harbor on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941. They were fired across'the council (able in Washington in 1921 and 11122 when Great Britain and the United States agreed to the 5-5-3 naval limitations and further conceded that the United Slates would not fortify anything west of Hawaii, nor the British anything east of Singapore. In return Japan was to keep its fingers off the thousands of mandated islqnds and possessions it conlrolled (mostly as a "gift" following World War I) from Honolulu to the Malay peninsula. Japan had no intention then of abiding by that treaty. Within a few years, it was referring to those islands as "its second navy" the only difference being that the islands were anchored ships of war. Japan's attempted rape of eastern Asia in the last ten years is too well known to need repeating, but it all fits into the background of those tense days which finally brought suave, smiling, outwardly friendly Saburo Kurusu here to work with Ambassador Kichisaburo Nomura "for peace in the Pacific." No words can explain how completely the United Stales was laken in by this subterfuge. The Army and Navy were fooled; the Stale Department was fooled; and even the pensing hospitalities by Mrs. Robert Wilson. Miss Robins Has Gala Holiday Dance for College Crowd Miss Nancy Robins entertained with a dance on Friday evening at the American Legion hall. The guests included the members of the college crowd home from the holidays and a number of out-of-town guests., For the occasion the club rooms were decorated with seasonal arrangements and a nickelodian furnished the rhythmical tunes to which the guests danced. Punch was served throughout the evening. Personal Mention Miss Sara Ann Holland flew to Washington D. C. Sunday afternoon from Litlle Rock.

Hope, Arkansas, on Wednesday January 14, :»42, at V-J5 P. M. The purpose of the meeting is to transact such business as might coi:.^ before it. P. E. BRIANT President E. L. GREENING Secretary Dec 22, Jan 5. President misplced his faith in this flag of truce and outwardly sincere effort to avoid war. It is extremely likely that not even Kurusu and Nomura were informed just when the bombs would drop on Pearl Harbor. Nevertheless, Kurusu and Nomura undoubtedly were instructed to stall for time. Official Washington knew they were slalling. For days they shuttled back en forth between the White House and the State Department. Even when Secretary Hull had become wrathful at the backing and filling; and President Roosevelt had so lost patience that he directed a note directly to Emperor Hirohito, Jurusu and Nomura still were bowing and scraping with assurances that peace in the Pacific was just over the horizon. One hour after the first bombs and torpedoes had blasted Pearl Harbor, and almost at the same moment that Kurusu and Nomura were backing out of angry Secretary of State Hull's office for the last time, Hirohito's answer to the President's message was handed to Ambassador Grew in Tokyo. The message said peace in the Pacific was "his majesly's cherished desire." It'll be many a year before the United States plays "It" again in the blind man's buff of world diplomacy. How It Was Named Ammonia also is known as "harts- horn," At one time it was made by beating the horns of stags, or harts, in closed vessels to draw out the gases. ===== rAfit f ttfctv Negro Teachers to Meet on January 10 The annual meeting of Hemp3tead>, county negro teachers will be heltfi at the Yerger high school Saturday, January 10, at 11 o'clock, A.
