Charles City Globe-Gazette OFFICER SHOWS JAP TROPHIES Lt. Ed Bailey Tells of Fight on Attu Island Charles City--Speaking before the Charles City Rotary club at its Monday noon v luncheon, Lt. Ed Bailey showed the group a number of Japanese trophies which he had taken on Attu island when the Yanks took possession. These consisted of a "good luck" scarf worn by Jap soldiers; a heavy, well-constructed mit with special first finger for emergency use; a machine-knit, white cotton glove, strong but not very warm; a white cotton sock without heel; and a loin cloth. The speaker stated that on the whole the Japs on Attu were pretty well cared for. Clothing was warm and fairly adequate. They had rubber boots, goatskin coats, fur-lined walking boots, long well-lined leggins. Their food was excellent: rice, canned salmon or tuna fish, dried onions and carrots, canned tangerines, also Bl vitamins. Lieutenant Bailey g a v e a graphic description of the battle for Attu. He was himself in charge of some of the troops as they landed on a beach about 100 yards wide. Forty-five men were lost the first night in the landing attempt. , Â· At 4 p. m. that day the Lieutenant led his company in an attack on Bloody Ridge, pushing the Japs back about 1,500 feet. He described the Japs as grim fighters, but under pressure from the Yanks they evacuated the ridge. The battle, however, continued from every angle .until the Japs had enough. The lieutenant stated that the Japs killed all their wounded comrades, and that the doctor in charge committed hari-kari. To end it all the remaining Japs carried out the suicide pact. Only 21 prisoners ' were taken by Uncle Sam's soldiers. The lieutenant made special mention of the fine work done by the seabees in completing an airfield which the Japs had left.

FIFE INCOME TAX BLUES For days he worked on his income tax, He could neither eat nor his nerves relax; Then all at once he began to yell, And his wife she wondered now what the el, As he leaped and shouted and climbed the wall, Then flat on his face on tha floor ; did fall. He busted the windows out of the house, And chased with a knife his bewildered spouse. Then hair from his head he did wildly snatch, Till they carried him off to the iooby hatch. --Â·-- It's sure great. How any normal mortal could figure out such an insane, complicated piece of literature as this year's income tax blanks is beyond the scope of the average person's comprehension. All.in this world that an income tax blank need call for is the person's income, his exemptions and the amount payable. But would the famous Washington red tape brigade stand for anything like that Evidently, very evidently not. --Â·-- Not that we want to boost anyone's business, but brother, you better be making an appointment right now with your favorite accountant or lawyer and lay the whole mess in his lap. You can never, no never, handle it yourself. --Â·-- It may be a little late, or exceedingly ' e a r l y , to mention Christinas greeting c a r d s at this ' time but our friend J. D Long of Boulder, Colo., had quite an Idea in getting his up. Especially from a conservation of time and effort and paper, standpoint Not only does he wish one a current Merry Christmas, but he also wishes one a happy birthday, i: any, and a Merry Christmas for next Christmas as well. Which the only bad feature of such ,, futurist program would be did a person get a mad on at a fellow before the next Christmas he would be sending a guy he didn 1 like a greeting card. ^ Â·Â·Â·Â·^ Thanks to our friend W.

Especially the word of explanation advising as to why the sale is being held which always preceedi the details of the sale. It seems ti be as ironbound as the law of th Medes and the Persians that al farm sale .bills must start out b sfating why the sale is being held --Â·-- Here ire * few starters from more or less recent sale bills: The farm having been sold-As Hamlet has rented a smallc farm-I have decided to quit farming-As I am leavine the state-On account of poor health-As I am moving to a, smalle farm-And so they go. No one runs have a farm sale without statin some reason for so doing. --Â·-- NO MATTER WHAT THE TIME OR SEASON, EACH FARM SALE HELD, MUST HAVE A REASON. Mr. Eye's recent little article i his justly famous feature entitle "What's a call boy?" was an in teresting story. But when he say call boys went out when tr phones came in he was a lilt! off in his figuring. There are still "callers" em ployed at all railroad termina of any consequence. At heavy tra: fie terminals, there are 2 caller on duty, one to call engineme and one to call the trainmen. A END WED. "THE BIG STREET" "LUCKY tEGS" 17 I c TILL 6:00 - THEN Pins T*I - Child.

Will you have something laid away? We're all hoping there'll be jobs aplenty, jobs which mean making some thing for somebody's happiness and not for somebody's sortow. That's where your War Bonds come into the picture. Sure, Americans own billions of dol* lars of War Bonds now; and before this 4th War loan ends they will have put away billions more.
