Tlie are .still punching hard. The Allicls are on the defensive in many sectors, and where they are on tlie offensive, .progress is painful and slow. V-Day seems to be around tliat same corner that prosperity wai around in 1932. By the same token, measures which liajve been taken to tighten up the war effort here at home are all fully justified. Until victary In Europe is! clearly in the bag, nothing iLskedjof the home front by way of cooperation is too much. Everything thit we can do Is little enough ill the face of what is be- ins required of our boys In Prance and Belgium. Granting all this, however, it still may xat be unpatriotic to suggest that official Washington la undoubtedly! making the most out of the bad news that it possibly can in order to spike the overoptimism which wa^ raising hob with the war effort a few months ago and keep the public soberly and conscien- tiou.^ly "war conscious." This is 'entirely proper. Americans are a. pretty effervescent lot. And .since: our whole war production structure is on a voluntary rather than a compulsory service basis, the jattilude of the people Is the main jsingle factor influencing results. Americans need many a kick io the pant.s to keep them sober, serious, and ion tlie job. If Byrnes and otlifi-.s re.sponsible for the war effort can turn bad news to that end, more iwwer to them. But if you are inclined to get too far down in the mouth over the turn of events in Europe, just remember that pe-wimLsm is official medicine in Wa.shlngton these days. Things may not be quite as bad as they are being made to appear. tion of Army units—their location, strength, materiel, or equipment. 2. Dont write of military, installations. 3. Don't write of transportation facilities. 4. Don't write of convoys, their routes, ports (Including ports of embarkation and disembarkation), time en route, naval protection, or war incidents occurring en route. 5. Don 't disclose movements of ships, naval or merchant, troops, or aircraft. 6. IDon't mention plans and forecasts or orders for future operations, whether known or just yoiur guess. 7. Don't UTite about the effects of enemy operations. 8. Don't tell of any casualty until relea.sed by proper authority (The Adjutant General) and then only by using the full name of the casualty. 9. Don't attempt to formulate or } use a code system, cipher, or shorthand or any other means to conceal the true meaning of your letter. Violations of this regulation will result In severe punishment. 10. Don't give your location in any way except as authorized by proper authority. Be .sure nothing you write about a more I specific location than the one au- i thorized. THE-IOI4A REGISXER,.THURSDAY EVENING^ JANUARY_4,2945^_ lOIlA, KANSAS A- KITCHEN SUPPLY LINE It's a lot of trouble to bundle up old newspapers and save old rags. It's bothersome to have to remember to pour waste kitchen fats into a container. It's also a lot of trouble to fislit a war. But Japs and Germans must be shot, and to do that job our fighting men are going to need more and more supplies. A lot of supply lines begin right at home in the kitchen. And the things that housewives have been salvaging are needed now as much as ever, some of them more so. Sometimes it is dlffictilt to remember that a little bit more war- required waste from every American kitchen will get more supplies to the fronts faster, save Uves, and end the war a little sooner. But it's true. So keep 'em rolling. WHAT THEY CAN SAY If you want to know why it is that your son or husband over.sea.s never .seems to write as fully about the things ihe is doing as you would like, you will be interested in the following excerpt from War Department Pamphlet No. 21-1 which ir, handed I to each soldier as soon us he arrives overseas. Tlie pamphlet is entitled, "Writing Home," and gives full instructions and I prohibitions. The following ten! subjects are prohibited: 1.

I>mt»»g Co ' A DAT IN A -mOlNlA PLANTER 'S LIFE (I71S) n LL the Randall family except Lucy, the eldest daughter, was at the breakfast table whep Swai;joined them. At his elbow stood a white mai^ in a dark-gray dress with a yello\ apron. She put before him a bov. of hominy and milk which hr been heated and then sweeten c v,-ith molasses. Smiling, she sai "Eggs this morning, sir?" "Yc.-;, Minnie," he replied. " dish of battered eggs." (Batte .i eggs were what we call scramb! eggs today.) In the early 18th century Kv groes were seldom used as hou .servants in Virginia. All able bodied slaves, both men an women, were needed for work i the tobacco fields. Another reasi pcrhap^ for their exclusion fro; household employment was th: most c' the slaves were still tc barbnriu to be acceptable as serv ant.s. Thoy had not learned house hold manner.s. The Randalls IKK only three Negro servants in tlu house. Tlie white maids wen cither indentured servants or liu daughters of poor farmers. As soon as he was through with the hominy and molasses Swain turned to the various platters on the table. His battered eggs were to be cooked and served hot, but there were many cold dishes. He selected - shce ^- b:./ced ham and piece of bro lea partridg . There were two lords of bread on the fable—corn hoecake and wheat biscuits, both cooked that morning and served hot. He took a biscuit, cut it open and sprer d butter on it. From a shining silver pitcher he poured himself a tankard of cider. * « « 4'TM sorry to hear that you're •'• leaving us today," said Mrs. Randall, a thin, sallow woman in her early 40s. LIVED Mrs. RandaU sfeldom smiled or lapghed.on account of her teeth. Tf ",ey were black.-with decay and many'of them were missing. s'Yes, Mary, I have to be on my voy," said Mr.' Swain. "The House las adjourned .tintil fall, as you ;now, and I have much to dp at jCilmore. I rjn thankful to you— )' all of you—for your many •;idnesses and hospitality." •Don't mention it," said Mrs. :,ndall. "It -^vas a pleasure. ,'f;'ve enjoyed your visit and itenever you come to Williams- i;rg I liope you will make this • your home." "Oh, I shall do that," said Ned \yain,-laughing. "And I give yo^ 1* same invitation tj Be" nor^. r ^me and . visit us and stay .i;inth." j'Stay a month!" Mary Randall •i -claimed. "What with keeping 'use, looking after the chi .ren, id watching servants- -why, if ^ •ly abroad e eh vjverr'ght I 'm restless as a.cow that's lost her ' .;lf." •Her husband pole" up hastily, ud changed '" - ubjec . Ho was lire that his wlie wou-d talk for .1^ hour on her; troubles. "That can mare of yours, Ned," he re- nfarked, "looks like a fine bit of Yorseflesh. Why- don't you race hpr?" -""Oh, I don't know.

"Yo jer . \an^i' Ne^, ^wain itinuet.. ± iake you home with me today. Then Henry Randall spoke up. 'fThere you go," he exclahned, •fboth of you, making plans for me. How do you know I have the time' to spare? I have a great deal to,do right here. Maybe I'll go and maybe I won't." * « » ^ TgEFORE he had delivered this speech he had already, made lip his mind-to visit his friend's plantation, ^ai he would hot ad- rhit iK, Why? Because he had cultivat &a all tiis life an air of reluctance to agree to ariylhing withput first disparaging it, or doubting its worth or validity. This inanner had become a' deep- seated habit.
