TURN OFF THAT LIGHT!
We have all noticed for the past
month that all window display lights
in Raleigh, and every other city in
the country, have been turned off.
We know, or should know, that this
is done to conserve electricity that
is vitally needed for the war effort.
And yet, knowing this, we blithely
leave our rooms for an hour or so
with all lights blazing; we leave our
radios on to burn both electricity
and tubes while we are not listening;

the way we do accept it.
Courage is listening to the radio
say that the casualties on Iwo Jima
are terrifically high, that planes are
shot down over Germany and Japan,
that a ship is sunk; and then carry
ing on our lives in the ordinary
manner without admitting that fear
lias become a very real jiart of us.
It is accepting the present for what
it is, and reassuring our trust in
