Accustomed to shorter hours, he is surprised at his strength and skill to perform the more difficult tasks of a wartime day. It is his ambition to produce and produce and produce and thus hasten the day when our valiant youth will work by his side again. Yes, everybody has been more wearyjn wartime than ever before, not forgetting that patient Mother who is first on the job before breakfast. And, who of us isn't determined to carry on to total victory? If America hadn't had the spirit to pull together, if we hadn't sharpened our wits, if we hadn't surprised ourselves with our own sinew and self-reliance, we might feel uneasy over whatever trials may lie ahead. As it is, we can be grateful for our war-found capacities which will help the young folks get started in the sort of a world they want. Budweiser TRADE MARX DCS. U.S. DAT. OFF.
