Death To Japan
Nearly a century ago the United
States, then a young nation as his
tory goes, reached down into the
depths of oblivion and picked out the
long forgotten people of Japan to
nurture and foster them into the
state of being a world ranking owner.
kany tunes during tnis century the
United States has fronted for the
small people of that nation; it has
rescued tnem from bigger nations,
from fires, earthquakes and the like.
On Sunday last Japan repaid the
United States for this kindness and
brotnerly assistance. The Japanese
nation repaid we Americans not in
kind, but with bombs and bullets and
President Roosevelt, in his fire
side taik of Tuesday night, gave a
clear picture of the events as they
have occurred prior and after Japan
declared war on we Americans sever
al hours after they had bombed
Hawaii Sunday morning.
The very fact that the Japanese
tricked us into a false peace talk,
knowing their armed forces were at
the time making preparations for this
cowardly attack, gives us an insight
as to the character of that nation and
the type of enemy we are now fight
ing. There is but one job ahead of we
Americans . today and that job is the
annihilatmn complete and forever
of the type of nations such as Japan
and its allies.
Our government in Washington
was making an honest and sincere ef
fort to preserve peace in the Pacific
.... America did not want war with
Japan but the Japanese war lords,
in all probability egged on by Hitler,
refused to accept any thought but
that they were rulers of the entire
Pacific side of the world,
Japan has sounded her death-knell.
As our President said on Monday at
the meeting of the joint session of
Congress, America will triumph, so
help us God. It is now our job and
duty to put the Japanese nation back
into that niche of oblivion from which
Americans took her nearly a century
Are Crop Controls
The argument about crop control
will be heard again as a result of
advancing prices and some growers
of cotton and wheat will likely decide
that agriculture can take care of it
self without the benefit of any regu
lation of production.
In view of the fact that cotton
growers will vote on the question of
marketing quotas on Dec. 13th and
wheat growers will go to the polls
next Spring to decide the same issue,
we think it pertinent to urge all
farmers to think carefully before
abandoning the system which has un
doubtedly helped agriculture.
It is true that cotton and wheat
prices are higher than they were
when former referenda were held.
This seems to be a strong argument
in favor of retaining the restrictions
which boosted the prices. Certainly,
it is hardly wise to throw away the
medicine that improves the patient's
Moreover, growers of-wheat and
cotton should carefully consider the
surpluses that exist and the benefits
that they derive from loan programs
which peg prices. If control of pro
duction vanishes, it is only a ques
tion of when there will be other
mammoth crops which will prove to
be unmanageable, even with govern
The fact that the government ad

Well, young man. the next time I
see you, I hope you're a lieutenant.
Candidate Thank you, sir. The
same to you, sir.
A tribute for mother, who passed
away six years ago, December 16:
Now that her day is ended,
Its round of duties done;
She watches at Heaven's windows
By the light of Heaven's sun.
Her heart that had been unquiet
Its longings unbeguiled
By the day's vexatious trials
At last is reconciled. 1
Above earth's tallest mountains,
Beyond death's chilling sea,
She lives in that beautiful city
Waiting for you and for me.
Her voice was hushed in a moment
As night fell, tender and sweet,
And her spirit crossed the river '
To kneel at its Master's feet.
She rests in shade that falleth
From trees that with healing are ripe
They shadow the banks of the-river,
Where flows the water of life.
And sometime, our days also ended,
The duties He gave us done, ' !
We shall watch at life's western
The gleam of the setting sun. '
We shall fall asleep in the twilight
To steep as we haven't before,
And ttfe am of the beautiful city :
Till we waken to sleep no more,' -There
- will ' fall on our, restless spirit
A hush so wondrously sweet ,
We, too,, shall cross over the, river ,.i
To test at-the faster feet
Her Daughter, Mrs, J. ' L. Nixon.
