Advice for Yanks in Australia

With lull access. to complete and
confidential military information,
Mr. Davis cites the following factors
on the debit side of war ledger as
1. Production is not yet enough. It
even fell off slightly in June in ev
ery vital category, in fighting planes,
tanks, naval vessels, and most types
2. At the moment the United States
has more factories than it can use
because of shortages of raw mater
ials and because faulty control of
inventories and of the flow of raw
materials has caused some tempor
3. "We have not been producing
war material to the maximum of
available capacity and have not been
getting that material to the fighting
fronts in time and in the volume that
will be needed to win."
4 The United States has paid for
"perfect protection" given to troop
convoys to Europe and to the South
Seas with heavy shipping losses off
the Atlantic Coast.
5. Production of merchant vessels
is increasing continuously but sink
ings still are reported to be exceed
ing this increased output.
6. The construction of small ves
sels for the anti-submarine cam
paign is lagging and in June was
less than half of schedule.
7. Even if shipbuilding keeps go
ing up and if sinkings should go
down, it would still be well into
1943 before "we again have as much
merchant shipping as we had on De
cember 7, 1941."
8. Time will never be on our side
until we use it better than the en
It is for these reasons that the Of
fice of War Information, which in
its communique shows that it be
lieves the American people want the
truth and can take it, concludes that
the United Nations are deep in what
may be the decisive year of the war.
It explains this statement in these
"1942 will be the decisive year on
ly if our enemies do not succeed in
inflicting crippling blows on our Al
lies before the year is out. Even if
they fail in that, they will still take
a lot of licking But if they should
paralyze the striking power of Rus
sia, or wear down the endurance of
China, or break the British in the
Middle East, the war will be decided
in some later year not now foreseen,
and victory will be far more costly.
"It is not intended here to discuss
the military situation except as It
relates to what the American people
are doing about it. We always knew
that for us 1942 would be largely
a year of preparation, and that our
Allies would have to do most of the
fighting during most of the year. Be
fore we can do much of the fighting,
we must move great numbers of
men and vast masses of material ov
er enormous distances."
How desperate, then, does the OWI
statement really mean the outlook
is? The answer is that the outlook
is desperate only if the nation fails
to realize that thus far "It is not more
than ankle deep in the war." The
communique frankly admits that "we
could lose this war" but affirms that
"we can win it, if we realize that

will have to be made.
The appraisal of the war as a

Waste Fats Needed

Dean Schaub has accepted the post
as Chairman of the Consumer Di

tee. Mrs. Estelle T. Smith, assistant
to the State home demonstration
agent, is chairman of the Women's
Division of the Salvage Committee.
These two State College leaders
have united in an appeal to all
North Carolina housewives to save
waste fats, "Don't throw away a sin
gle drop of used cooking fats," they
urged. "This includes bacon grease,
meat drippings, frying fats?every
kind you use. After you've got all the
cooking good from them, pour them
through a kitchen strainer into a
clean, wide-mouthed can. Store in
a cool dark place."
Dean Schaub explained that meat
dealers are particularly serving as
collectors of the waste fats. They
have asked that waste fats be brought
to them in one-pound lots, prefer
ably early in the week. They will
weigh the fats, pay the housewife
for them .and start them on the way
to the war Industries.
Mrs. Smith lists four things "Not
to do." (1) Don't take less than due
