i THE WAR
Big news comes in from all the war fronts this
week and it is all good.
President Roosevelt has flown to Africa and
met with Churchill and all the big generals and
admirals to plan the grand offensives soon to
begin. The conference, one of the greatest of
history, continued day and night for 9 days. The
news of the meeting, broadcast to the world,
electrified all the neutral and conquered coun
tries and sent a wave of terror and dismay into
Germany, Japan and Italy. The President is in
South America today on his way home, accord
ing to the radio. Great events are expected to
soon follow the meeting of the allied leaders.
On all fronts the battle is going against the
Axis. In Russia only about 5,000 of the great
army of nearly 250,000 that encompassed Stalin
-1 grad is left. The rest of that tremendous host of
1 22 divisions has been killed or captured in just
!a few weeks time. Other Russian armies are
pressing on toward Rostov, the great Key City i
of the German line.
In Africa Rommel is still trying to reach Tun
isia after Tripoli has been taken by the allies.
The Americans, British and French under the
American general Eisenhower are rushing to
cut Rommel off if possible before he can reach
his destination, which is to join the German
forces in Tunisia. The British eighth army is at
his heels. The allies have control of the air com
Every day and night big bombers of America
and Britian are blasting industrial cities of
Germany, destroying trains, railways, docks,
shipping, and the great German war factories.
Recently Berlin was visited with great destruc
tion from our air forces.
In the Solomons and New Guinea McArthur's
men are steadily cleaning out the Japs, shipping
and transports, leveling port facilities and tak
ing more air bases.
The Americans and Australians here as in Af
rica, are masters of the skies.
The gigantic production of America is now
telling an awful tale to the Axis, and it is grow
ing and expanding every day. More than 5,000
planes are rolling out of the American plants
each month, with tanks, machine guns, bombs,
and war material of all kinds in proportion.
In the meantime the armies are swelling in
numbers, now being more than 7,000,000 strong.
It is expected to number nearly 10,000,000 in
the present year.
Uncle Sam is taking no chances. Keep your
eye on him, and continue to buy bonds and
The great day is coming.
