The people of the country ai . disgusted and

President and congress to end a situation Miic-h
threatens the lives of our boys the fronts.
The people want this Lewis behind the bars and
tried as a traitor. Then put every man engaged
in vital production in a military status. If a sol
dier refuses to tight when the enemy is at the
door, he becomes a deserter and a teubjeet for a
firing squad. If a worker engaged in war pro
duction refuses to work, let him be in the cat- j
egory of a deserter from the army, and suffer i
The soldier boy working for .SSO a month fights,
dies uncomplainingly. The worker receiving s6i
or $8 a day, because he is not paid 32.n0 a day
' more, lays down like a skulking hound and re
fuses to work.
Every town, village, county and city in the na- ,
'lion should send up to Washington a memoria
•of its amazement and indignation at the tragic
supineness which is retarding the war effort and :
endangering the Republic. i
In all the moving history coming out in the j
panorama of the terrible Pacific war, no one in-!
cident afforded the American people keener sat
isfaction than the news of the death of Yamamo
The circumstances surrounding this wharf
rat's sudden demise are cloaked in Jap mystery.
But the news had to come out. He was the Jap
big shot, the acclaimed idol, and the commander -
in-chief of all the naval forces.
And so Tokyo explains he met his death glor
iously on the forefront of battle—somewhere
but where, and how?
Many shrewd United Nations observers and
commentators do not believe this Jap lie any
more than they believe any other Jap lie.
They believe the arrogant Jap admiral wh >
hated America .with such a consuming and
ceaseless hatred, did not die gloriously in the
forefront of battle. * 1 "
On the contrary they are convinced that he
whose stupendous conceit and ambition led him
to express his intention to destroy England and
America and then dictate a Jap peace in the
White House at Washington—died the death of
the rat he was.
They believe "Yam" was so disappointed and
disconcerted at the many crushing defeats his
forces had suffered in the South Pacific that he
couldn't bear to face the Tokyo rats to whom he
had boasted so much. And so resorted to hari
kari, that cowardly and disgusting rat way of
saving face while losing the intestines.
We know you have seen Yamamoto's picture.
Time magazine prints the best one. If ever a
(face showed the lineaments of a human devil,
Yamamoto's had it. In the lines of his counten
ance you may easily delineate the cruelty, the
ferocity and the treachery of the beast. In his
eys gleams his unspeakable hate and ruthless
In hell this tarantula may have sufficient tiine
if not inclination to revise his opinions of
American power and the valor and vengeance of
its outraged soldiers, and to rue the days that he
