Now the powers have solemnly warned these criminal wretches that they may be fined even $1,000 and given a year in prison if caught In such traitorous acts. Some people even go so far as to say that It has never been absolutely proven that pant cuffs were not the cause of the disaster at Pearl Harbor.

We know that a country cannot fight to win them once and stop. We learned the hard way that liberty and freedom and democracy are prizes awarded only to those people who fight to win them and then fight eternally to hold them." —Sergeant Alvin York, 1918 The Brutality of War It looks as though the whole world is reverting to savagery and brutality not only the Germans and Japs, but force of circumstances perhaps is causing ever-increasing acts of savagery from .most of the combatants. It is,true that war breeds brutality and certainly is no parlor game. When a person or a nation gets hit in the face they ar^ liable to retaliate with anything they can lay their hands on. From the time that the Germans began the ruthless slaughter of the Poles until the present, one bloody chapter after another has been added to the world wide slaughter. All rules of warfare have long ago been abandoned, and cold-blooded executions of thousands of "hostages", known to be innocent cf any wrong-doing has been the common practice of Hitler and his gang of brigands. The attack on Greece which was entirely unprovoked, has been the cause of the death-of hundreds of thousands of helpless women and children from starvation after the little country was finally conquered by thi overwhelming force of both Germany and Italy. After totally devastating the country and destroying 01 taking over all supplies the people of Greece were Jeft to die without any effort being made by the Germans or Italians to keep them from starvation. The Japs have 'been tieing up their English prisoners captured at Hongkong and then killing them with bayonets. The same kind of bloody and well-authenticated stories come from Java, where prisoners of war were taken out 'by the hundreds and deliberately shot to death by the Japs to save any more bother with them. Last week the Associated Press carried a story of United States submarines sinking two Japanese ships in the China Sea. One was a lOjOOO ton cargo passenger ship and the other a cargo vessel. Nothing was said as to whether the passenger ship was torpedoed without •warning with a terrible loss of life by drowning. "We all remember in the first World War the horror of the whole world at the sinking of the Lusitania when it was torpedoed by the G:rmans without warning, drowning over a thousand passengers. It seems that in this war merely the sinking of the .ship is reported, the fate of the passengers not being of enough moment to be of interest. It sometimes seems that if the war continues a year or so danger wz may all be out with a gun looking for a .Jap or a German to murder in their beds or wher_ • ever they may be found. Christian civilization is fighting for its very life against the combined forces of darkness and brutality, and we have a right to fight the devil with fire. Glorious in Defeat Of course though it had long been known that eventually the Philippines would fall to the Japs, the news of the surrender of Gen. Wainwright's army was depressing.. With a force outnumbered eight to one, our fighting men, first under MacArthur and later under Gen. Walnwright, finally went down to defeat leaving one of the most Glorious records in military history. It Is understood that something over 36,000 surrendered after complete exhaustion of men and fighting material. Of this force it Is said that only about 3,000 were. Americans, the rest being Filipinos. It had not been known before that some supplies from America ran the gauntlet and kept our forces supplied with ammunition and food, but there waa a loss of two ships for every one that succeeded In running the blockade. Many people have thought that the Philippines were 'Of no value to us and only a source of trouble. The United States has spent much 'blood and treasure In these far away Islands in an attempt to give them a stable government, and they were to have had complete independence in 1946. Japanese Buys U. S. War Bond (Down at Shenandoah the other day several Japanese young men, who were engaged in sexing chickens, were almost mobbed and run out of town by a mob who demanded that they be sent to a concentration camp, 'it later developed that one or twj of them were students or graduates of Iowa States College, Ames, and were American citizens. One of these young men,' an American-born Jap* ancse, later while working at Spencer bought a $500 U. S. war bend, saying that he wanted to do what he could for his country, meaning- of course, the United States. People should not get hysterical about these war matters. Opinions of Other Editors A Great Sacrifice Demanded Guess wo will have to get along without cuffs on our trousers. Of course it will take great force of character and determination to win the war to get along without cuffs on our pants, but when has the American people failed to make sacrifices even as drastic as foregoing cuffs on their pants to preserve our liberties? Wo will meet the cuff matter in the He Belongs to Hitler Mason City Globe-Gazette: Marshal Petain is angry with the British. He has furiously denounced them for the bombing .of a Parisian suburb where a great motor plant was destroyed by bombs —and many people killed. The plant was admittedly making trucks for the Nazi army.- The aged marshal characterized the British, formerly allied With Prance against Germany, as those "who could not let our soldiers alone go lo their death but two years later brought death with the coldest resolution to our innocent civilians." "There is no law of war," Petain continued, "There is no pretext to justify before the conscience of humanity such bloody hecatombs." What does the marshal expect? Has he forgotten what happened to Coventry, British automobile center that the German bombed almost out of existence, with thousands killed? Has he forgotten what happened to London? Does he expect to turn his country into an arsenal for Hitler and retain the rights 'of a neutral? iWhy doesn't the marshal speak with equal anger against the Germans who are starving hundreds of thousands of French children, shooting innocent hostages, and robbing France of all her wealth? Is that according to the "laws of war?" The answer, of course, is that Marshal Petain is not a free agent. He is a Hitler mouthpiece, a virtual Quisling who has only a shadow of real authority. He may or may not <be honest. iBut it is foolish for the united nations to pay any attention to him, absurd to withhold any punishing action in the hope of maintaining "good relations" with the Vichy government. They can do little to hurt our cause and will do nothing to aid it. They are hoping for German victory; they are enemies, net friends. * * * Poppy Cock and More of It (Northwood Anchor: Almost an entire column of a Sunday newspaper magazine section is taken up 1 with a eulogistic description of a newly arrived French actor at a Hollywood motion picture studio. Jean Gabin, the Frenchman, was inteviewed and the gist of his breath-taking remarks, voiced in that oh-so-romantic bastard imitation of the English language is: "American male stars are marvelous but perhaps they sometimes forget that American speed and high pressure should apply only to business—certainly not to romance. A man must love earnestly and with the fiery intensity on the screen just as we do In real life when we find Icve." Hooray, Monsieur! American girls and women will sim-pully "lofe" your amorous sentiments and tear the very clothes off your body when you go personal appearancing. No Selfish Profit from War Mason City Globe-Gazette: Labor leaders anil their spokesmen in congress have been complaining- that the campaign of letters to congressmen, demanding revision of the wagejiour law for war work, was organized by the United States chamber of commerce. Proof so far is lacking, except th/u the chamber did recommend to its members that they, write to congressmen and senators about the matter. But so have meat newspapers, many a speaker without chamber of commerce connections, and idmost every one else who realizes that we are not fulfilling our potentialities as the "arsenal of democracy." The complaint, however comes from a curious source: Labor crganizers and the payrollers, both of whom are expert in flooding congress with chain- letter demands for this or that special privilege. In fact, it is admitted that they are furiously busy right r.ovv organizing a mail campaign' to congress, insisting that there shall be no change in the wage- hour law. That doesn't need proof, for they admit it. So it's largely a cost of pot-and-kettle. 'Probably congressmen and senators will disregard any letters that have the obvious signs of being inspired by either of these pressure lobbies. They are not hard to spot. But they will pay attention to the letter from parents of sens in the service, from worried taxpayers Wondering how they can foot the bill if it is shoved steadily upward by collectors of huge profits or insistence upon huge wages. The lobbyists and their backers are a distinct minority. They cannot stand again the wrath iof a people worn and harried by their responsibilities, worried for the lives of their sons. Let congress immediately put a drastic limit to war profits, let the excess profits tax be tightened to the limit—and let an equal restriction be placed on labor's constant jacking up of wages. The hours to he worked, after all, are not the real issue. It's the time-and-a-half and double-time pay rates which are the cause of the squabble. It is ridiculous for the government to insist that legislation passed to spread work during a period of unemployment shall be continued in a totally different situation in which every hand is needed and every tool must be busy. The administration is simply insisting that the war shall be made as costly us possible; that the shortest route to national bankruptcy shall be chosen. It is equally ridiculous that the government should pay such prices for its war weapons as was revealed in the notorious case of Jack & Heinz, who were rolling in such lush profits that a stenographer was paid a salary and bonus of $39,000 in one year! It now develops that the RFC loaned Jack—a former union organizer—$6,000,000 to start his plant. Imagine Uncle Sam advancing money to set up in business a man who would profiteer against the government. (It is small wonder that bleeding taxpayers are saying "a plague on both your houses!" Between profiteers of industry and profiteers of labor they are being ground like corn. And meanwhile they see the war going against us. This country doesn't belong either to labor or to industry—nor for that matter to the politicians. It belongs to us all, and we'll never cease to demand that congress pat both labor and industry in their places to win this war. B'pr as Genaral MacArthur truly said: "We must \vin or we musf die." West Bend No Nazi Stronghold To the Editor: We, the -war board of West Bend, Iowa, liav- liig read the article by W. H. Oau^eitdiek in the April 1 i»- ••liue of The Des Moines Reg- inter, heartily disapprove of the SUMW. We believe the ideas expressed In the article are purely JHptleristic and should not be held by a man of honor, in the United States, who appreciates liberty. W« believe that Hit- 'lezlsm condones murder, arson, , djslioaestr. Inunorality, Open Forum of The Des Moines Register away the privilege of free speech, and condemns the brotherhood of man. In fact, it condemns the whole American way of life. We believe that anyone championing such a master is void of decency and not fit to hold a decent place in society or this community. We therefor ask and pray that the proper authorities take charge »f Mr. Daubendiek, revoke his citizenship, and treat him as enemy aliens are treated. We might if we allowed ourselves, add much to this. We do not want the world to think that West Bend is a Hitler stronghold of Is in any way approving Daubendiek's ideas. We repudiate all that he has said and done in the line of Hitler promotion. Signed by the War Board of West Bend'Oownshlp. B. F. McFartand P. O. DprweUer A. B.

So I guess It's al right and I'm still proud I'm E Dane, so-to speak. —o— Bud Zender, one of the Influential members of the swirpers -club bought a Missouri meerschaum anc a bale of hay from John Beiser and then he made a presentation speech and gave it to me and that smoke screen on the main drag Tuesday was me and my new pipe and it ain't hay, neither was It tobacco, and John said it was noted 'for its density and he sold it by the ton and it was good to smoke out foxes skunks and such and the smell of t almost reach a stench and it wa:. strong enough to tie a knot in rail and I repeat it wasn't tobacco and it wasn't hay. —o— And I met Harold Lampright on the street.the other day and I didn't know him because on account oi de had a hat on and I've only seen him in the post office window doling out stamps at 3c per and he's just as bald headed as I am 'but i didn't show under his x hat 'and he says a bald head is much easier ti: ceep clean than :cne with a lot of .vool on it and which I know, too, >ut it's also a nice landing field 'or flies and mosquitos in the summer time and that's how come I always wear my hat except when ' go to bed and the Mrs. says here\s a place for a' hat and it' not in bed, and Harold suggested wear a night cap, and maybe I o—who knows? Ate dinner the other day at thi ame table with Garrett Welhousen Job Loss, O. L. Thoresen, Fred Schiltz, Theo. Hutchison and Luke Linn-an and I borrowed 11 cents from Bob to help pay for my meal and when I pay him back he can join the Ancient Order iof Buffalo with the 11 cents and Fred Schiltz wanted to go bullhead fishing and he showed how you grab a bullhead behind the horns and with the flip of a knife and the drag of pliers you skin the bullhead so quickly he don't have time to beller and Theo. Hutchison said that's" what he had against bullheads, one of 'em kept him awake all night once and he had to go iout and shoot it to stop the bellering and Luke listened to Thoresen and'Welhousen and learned all about pigs and litters and pork and fritter* and I slipped my meal check tight up close to Luke but his sight wasn't so good on tha side and I had to pay the bill myself but It was worth it, eating with an Intelligent crew like that.
