It has been in use now for about a month and the amoimt of stores piled up in its near vicinity now could probably be counted in the hundreds of thousands of tons. If the Germans are able to push their drive clear through to this port, they would not only capture military booty of incalculable value, but they would sever the life-line which Is feeding our side of the whole western front. Such an achievement sKU. of course, would not mean victory for the Germans, but It certainly would cut the heart out of our.own offensive. It could easly delay victory a full six months, maybe longer. It could cost us, in effect. Just about everything we have gained since the blitz through France. I don't think it will happen. I believe we have the power, the courage, and the generalship to stop them considerably short of this goal. • But it does suggest a reason for the gamble the Nazis are taking and the size of the stakes which are being played for. •ON EARTH, PEACE' Throughout the world today i • Americans once more are celebrat- j * iiig Chri.stmas, in their own homes and churches, before the altars of <. strange churches in strange lands, oh tropic beaches and snowy bat- t.rcfields.
