By this aggression the Japanese unleashed the full fury of the American Government and its people, and by one o'clock Monday, the country was declared officially at war with the Japs when the Senate voted 82 to 0 and the House only had one dissenting vote, that being Jeanette Rankiri of Montana, who also cast a negative vote when she was a Congresswoman during the last war. The vote in the House of Representatives was 388 to 1. . . · · The West Coast around San Francisco has al- "eady had air raid alarms, although no enemy planes were sighted within the city, the invader apparently being beaten off in the Pacifiic before coming to his objective. New York also has had air raid alarms but no planes were sighted. The Presdent addressed the Nation Tuesday night and told the American people to prepare for a long war and to also prepare to make additional sacrifices until peace can again be restored. He was confident that the Democracies would be able to defeat "these gangsters who strike their victims without warning," citing- the cases of Austria, Czechoslavakia, Poland, the Lowlands, Norway, Roumania, Greece and Russia, who were pounced upon without any preliminary warning whatsoever. President Roosevelt also' advised his fellow Americans that news from the trouble area would not be .suppressed in any way, only two conditions being adhered to before events would be made public; the}- being official confirmation and no news being given out unless it would be of no value to the enemy as far as locating positions of American forces. Next of kin of American -soldiers, sailors and aviators would be promptly informed of any important news. li the claims of the Japanese can be believed the American fleet suffered a terrific, blow in this surprise attack. But Mr. Roosevelt stated this was nu old (rick of exaggeration used by the enemy in many previous instances during this second World \\ ar to bewilder their adversary. America has a dirty job on its hands, he said and we- will not rest u n t i l the mess has been cleaned up. , - . It may take a few clays to get the forces of this country m full coordination before any major moves are made, for careful planning is necessary r? th TM^ ritre ° f Wlr in the Pacific is something lik-e .5U,(XX) square miles, and any false moves would prove disastrous.

LITTLE LOW You've read about it in stories, where an officer would stop a speeder and ask with indignation for the. motorist's pilot's license. Well it happened, to an; officer out East and with a kickback. , = . "I suppose you have your pilot's license?" asked' the cop. after he halted the speeding autoist. "Yes I have," replied the speeder, producing his federal license and identity card as a flyer, "I've heard of such things but it never happened to me before." said the cop. "Fly on." The race for the legislature had been quite heated and the two contestants were making the rounds of the voters to corrall as many of the honored citizens as possible. One of the contestants came upon a home that iiad a neat pile of unchop'ped wood in the yard and :he woman of the house washing her clothes on the porch. Said the good fellow, "whether there is a job in the legislature or in the home I'm 1 always ready to tackle, and forthwith he took off his coat and proceeded to chop the wood. After he lad finished he-came and sat on-the porch to fur:her his election aims. The lady straightened up from her work and addressed the candidate. "It sure is going- to be hard to decide between you and Mr Gillecn," she s.aid. "He is out on "the ^ck porch chuniing the butter." Are you wondering w'hat would make a good Christmas gift for some out of town friend or relative?

" A workman in an eastern factory was not delivering a just return according to what he was paid so the boss called the errant worker before him with the express purpose of firing him. As in most industries involving national defense contract's,-the worker and bosses wear badges with numbers oh them for identification purposes. "What is-your badge, number?" asked the boss ; The worker knowing that he was going to be fired,_ jmischieyously read off the boss' own number .thafe-jyas : ori: his ^badgc. .:.,^s-a..consequence the boss fired himself and it -triok'tHrec^'ctayf'for him to get back on the payroll. . s » ? .*NE FOR GOGEBIC A riew .set .of numbers grace, the license plates of the 1942iseTies, which are white 'numerals upon a green background.
