By Minton C. Johnston, Chaplain,
Ro>al Canadian Air Force
You feared when first you saw me fly
And stood quite breathless till again
From out the clouds you saw the plane
1 Glide gently in the field near by.
You said the ground was safe, secure,
That, men were never made with wings,
That they should trust in firmer things
And always keep their footing sure.
So men have said. But at the last
The solid earth will fade away,
And we, robbed even of our clay,
Alone must pierce the overcast.
So passes all that men call secure,
But I, v T ho dared tne trackless sky
And ’gainst your judgment learned to fly.
Have found a faith more strong and sure.
There in the silence of the blue
With only clouds beneath my wing
I’ve found the One Eternal Thing
Which carries on when earth is through.
There in infinity of light
I bowed my head, and all my heart
Was filled with awe; I was a part
Os God Whose Hand upheld my flight.
If for a time the clouds now hide
My face from you, take heart and trust,
For God Who rules the air is just
And I h nve found Him by my side.

was sent to rs with the request that it be reprinted.)

vealing that invasion re
ports have resulted in a
rush to blood donor centers,
the American Red Cross
announced that approxim
ately 8,450,000 pints of
blood had been delivered by
July 1 for processing into!
the dried plasma and serum
albumin which have saved
lives of thousands at the
battle front.
About 5,650,000 pints'
were procured during the
three years ending last De
cember and the armed for
ces requested an additional
5,000,000 pints during 1944.
Os this year’s quota, 2,800,-
000 pintsf were donated by
June 30, and the Red Cross
now is procuring about 100,-
000 pints a week.
Although blood procure
ment facilities must be lim
ited to 35 cities and the
1,000 nearby communities
which can be visited by mo

saved the lives of men from
every section of the nation,
Because blood is perishable
iand the commercial labora

, s While it is too soon after
f the invasion of western
Europe to forecast when
n the Nazis will in unison
ie yell “Kamerad”, even Prime
n Minister Winston Churchill
£ has said that the European
[e phase of World War II
1 . might end this year,
g Regardless of whether
> we lick .the Germans in
m 1944 or 1945, all military
t. leaders agree that this is
the critical period when
our war production on the
>n Home Front and our supply
in lines must not falter. If
ig they do, the war will be pro
ra longed and our victorious
as advances may be reversed.
,n Pulpwood is one of the
•e vital war materials on whi
jch the Allied military for
>3 ces depend. The War Pro
duction Board has pointed
out that military demands
for paper and paperboard
tm. support the invasion
Rave mounted tremendous
ly. Even though production
is much better than this
time last year, it is not en
ough to keep pace with
growing war needs.
Maybe the pulpwood that
is harvested this summer
and fall will become a vic
tory harvest by furnishing
- our fighting men with the
equipment and supplies
they need to administer the
, death blow to Hitler’s le
gions. Gun powder made of
pulpwood may very will
fire the final shot.
Every cord or carload of
pulpwood cut today will
bring the end of the war
closer. Let’s make the
next few months the Vic

A Tribute to the Men of the American Landing Craft
Just before we leave for New Guinea
* There’s a poem we’d like to draft r x. -
To those Stirling Yankee watermen v,
Who manned the landing craft.
Kind, generous, openhearted
And game to their very core
Nip’s strafing and bombin they laughed at
As they ferried us up to the shore.
At Lae, Finschhaven and elsewhere
Undaunted they kept on the job
Landing their human cargoes there
Valiantly doing a job.
pJt '
That was vital in this rugged country
To the success of the Allied Cause
Though tired, cold, wet and weary
They toiled on without a pause.
Yes! “You’ll do’ ! The highest form of praise
The Aussie ere gives whom it fits
Ar.d it sure fits you blokes from the U. S. A.
Who gave us those “Taxi boat” lifts
You’ve earrit-d for yourselves 1
A warm spot in the hearts
Os the lads who wear the famed “T”
And talcs will be told of the great job you did
Wherever these lads may be.
So! A toast to Ye Mariners of flat bottomed '-'o?
Who kail from the land of Columbus
“May your great shows never grow less”
Is the firm wish of every one of us.
