AUGUST Si, 1W4 TURN OF THE YEAR .'\s tlie nights yro\v longer and the slirill iintl insistent chorus of the cicai.l- •idau seems to take on a more strident tone, the listener knows that it brings a peculiar sadness at the thought ol' this year's winter. For when the insects make their sharp music, .summer is ending. By the calendar there may be another month or more, hut the turn of the year has come. This is the high title, with grain being harvested, corn and fruits ripening and becoming more plentiful in (he mar,ket. Noonday sun is hot, but nights jiegin to Imvu a slight chill before daybreak. Spring js gone. Summer is going. Winter, is approaching more rapidly than we perhaps realize. "Why should winter lie sad! For this y(;ar it seems so, even to those who love it, and who count the hot days well gone when September brings its vigor. l?er- li'a'ps .'because the war is sad, and now that the page is turned into the last chapter but one, it is unbearable to .wait out the fighting through the last days, of'anxiety and the bitterness of grief.

Take the sun, tho blue-ness of tlio *ky, the richness of crop or. fruitage—take its full glow and beauty, the strength it builds into body and rnind for winter is yet to come. Winter will be over and war will be over, all in due time. Another spring will come to the heart as it will to the outdoor world.

By JOHN FARKOW= (Conliiialldi-r, I loyal C;m;i<li:in Navy, now 1'nninionilt Director.) Lt. James Dajton of the U. S. Army Service Forces,.and Mrs. Dalton were recent visitors at the home of Mr .and Mrs. Carmen Bozzano. Mrs. Dalton is the former Vivian Marino Barney Van Ness of Rubber avenue, had a swell time on his vacation in New York recently. Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Schmitz and Mr. and Mrs. Carl Pepperman returned from a short stay in Winthrop, Me., where it was pretty cool, Elmer says, Janet Schmitz returned with her parents after spending the summer up there. CORRECTIVE OCCUPATION Nations learn the hard way, and particularly L'nce Sam. But they do learn. And one of the most convincing evidences in this country just now is the statement by the President that whenever-or however Germany and Japan surrender, these lawless countries will be occupied by Allied forces, It. was hirgely the lack of such stern action last time, and the almostj frivolous way'in which \ve abandoned the job of disciplining inlernat-ional criminals, that, led eventually to the recent Nux.i horrors and the threatened breakdown of 'European civilization. From .now on, it may be hoped that American conduct of international af- i'airs will be more stout and realistic, directed neither by love nor hate, but by a decent regard for our own rights and requirements of modern life. Two great wars have shown that our eivil'r/ation cannot survive without direct and continuous association of the United States with foreign nations, ;ind helpful participation in foreign affairs. The world grows steadily smaller, and our own nation steadily larger in power and duties. Wo cannot avoid the duties any more than we can avoid the power. On the front page, (this is for all you good people who turn to the Column first thing when you pic): up the News) "!' today's issue, you'll find a story by Sgt. Joe Donahue of the U. S.

The ncwsrcel people arc bothering him, said his special nursemaid; reporters want to interview him; yes, even autograph nunl- ers came to. get his paw-prints.
