Many Problems Before
Japs Are Defeated
(Continued From Page One)
interesting description of the Jap
anese soldier and his weapons, relat
ing that the patience of the Jap sol
dier in waitirj to shoot at a full view
target was unbelievable. He stated
that the Jap is a tough fighting man
and that no one Should underesti
mate his ability. Incidentally, Sgt.
House was in a foxhole, on duty, on
Okinawa when he was informed by
phone that he was to return to the
United States to become a part of a
"small task force." Thinking he was
being ribbed, the Sergeant said, he
replied, "I'm too busy, I can't go back
to the States now, then he hung up.
Later the message was repeated and
the Sergeant said it was almost too
good to be true, as the thought fore
most in the minds of the men out
there is to get back home.
Throughout the entire program the
glaring fact that a huge job remains
to be accomplished before the Jap-1
anese are finally defeated was evident!

The meeting was divided into two
parts and during the intermission the
news group was the Army's guests
at a K ration supper. Each person
was served one of the meals the
Army supplies soldiers for use in
battle. . The rations were well boxed
doubt few civilians would choose
them for a steady diet. The break
fast package contained a meat and
egg mixture, biscuit, powdered coffee,
fruit bar, a stick of chewing gum,
three cigarettes and matches. The
other boxes, for dinner and supper,
differed only in the canned item,
some had cheese and bacon and a
change of drink. Instead of coffee it
might be orangeade or lemonade, and
instead of a fruit bar, the box had a
chocolate bar or carmels.
