Pacific Fleet Commander Nimitz
reported two and possibly three
Japanese aircraft carriers and a
destroyer were sunk, and three bat
tleships, six crusiers and three
transports were damaged in the
battle of Midway Island. ' All
planes on the two carriers 'defi
nitely known to be sunk were lost,
Admiral Nimitz said. One U. S.
carrier was hit and some planes
were lost, but casualties among
the U. S. personnel were light, he
said. Admiral King, commander
in chief of the U. S. fleet, said the
enemy fleet has apparently with
drawn from the Midway area, but
battle maneuvers are continuing
in the Hawaii-Dutch Harbor area.
The navy said the first Japanese
attack on Dutch Harbor on June
3 resulted in few casualties and
no serious damage, appearing to
have been made "primarily to test
our defense." The Japanese planes
which flew over the harbor six
hours after the initial attack were
"engaged solely in reconnaissance,"
the navy said.
Gen. MacArthur reported within
six days allied naval and air
forces sank seven and possibly
eight enemy submarines, two heav
ily loaded armed supply ships and
an armed transport, and also badly
damaged a 7,000 ton vessel. Al
lied losses in the Southwest Pa
cific were two cargo vessels. ,

Jesus took place on Sunday. April

Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary,
mother of James, according to St.
Luke, had prepared various spices
and ointments on Friday, after
the crucifixion, with which to an

Sabbath was over.
These three went to the tomb
very early Sunday morning". To
their surprise the heavy stone
which closed it was gone. Looking
in they realized it was empty, the
body vanished. Much perplexed,
they turned away to see two men
in shining garments standing
near them. As the women bowed
down in fear before the holy visi
tors, the men asked, "Why seek
ye the living among the dead ? He

the tomb, and looking in, saw the

worn laid by themselves. Going his
way Peter "wondered to himself

The disciples, one Cleopas, the

walking from Jerusalem after the
Passover, to the village of Era

unknown. As they walked they

that He did not know of the event.
"O fools, and slow of heart,"
Jesus answered, "to believe all'
that the prophets have spoken:
"Ought not Christ to have 'suf

into His glory?" And beginning at
Moses and the prophets, He ex
pounded the scriptures to them.
Drawing near the village. He was
about to leave them, but they
would not let Him, saying, "Abide
with us." He went with them, and

blessed it and brake it, and gave
to them. And their eyes were
opened, and they knew Him; and
He vanished out of their sight."
How excited these faithful fol

said to each other, "Did not our
heart burn within us while He
talked with us by the way. and
while He opened to us the scrip

Jerusalem and found the 11
(Thomas was not with the others),
and said: "The Lord is risen in

Simon." Then they told about
their walk and talk and how the
Lord was revealed to them when
He brake and blessed the bread.
As they spoke, Jesus Himself
stood in their midst, and said,
"Peace be unto you." Strange to
say, however. His disciples were
terrified, thinking they were see

To further reassure them, He,
asked them to give Him some
thing to eat, and when they gave
Him some broiled fish and honey
comb, He ate it to prove that it
was indeed their "dear Lord arisen

Keeping Her Own "Main Street"
On The Map
Back to fundamentals. That's what it takes to win a war. We must real
ize, as never before, that a straight line is the shortest distance between
two points . . . and that the shortest distance is both desirable and neces
sary in time of war.
"Main" street is back on the map. And well it should be. Today it is a busy
thoroughfare lined with good stores and shops whose counters and win
dows, owners and clerks have taken on a vastly greater significance since
Pearl Harbor . . . since all our resources have been pledged to a c,ause we
must not lose.
Priorities . . . rationing . . . conservation . . . these are the measures that
make it necessary to stay at home ... to shop at the nearest point where
goods are on sale. These are the measures that are magnifying the im
portance oi your nometown storekeeper.
