PEARL HARBOR DAY-ONE YEAR AT WAR This year December is a siginficant date, the anniver sary of the bleak day when the war lords of Japan cast the die for international treachery and the United States was precipitated from neutrality into war. Through the nation, and far beyond our shores, where ver our fighting force may be, the people of the United States will make this day. Bitterness at the memory of the treacherous character of the attack will exist, of course, but is deems certain that the true character of the day will be akin to the solemn temper of thefirst Thanksgiving Day. There are striking parallels between the two days. That first Thanksgiving, people thanked God they were still alive and had survived the cataclysmic dangers of the months past. They took stock oi the issues tor which they had fought and suffered, of what they had, and of what they had to do. They looked ahead to a hard winter and knew things would be worse before they would be better. But they knew they were right, that what they fought for was worth the hardships and sacrifices involved, and they faced the future with a calm trust in God and a grim deter mination to do what had to be done. The same situation exists today. And unmistakeable there are indications that our people feel the same high minded resolve, to work, to sacrifice, to fight for the right for their freedom. An army of free men and women on the march, they look to their leaders for guidance. For those who mold public opinion and give voice to the temper of the people, this situation presents a great oppor tunity, an opportunity to emphasize the deep significance of December 7, 1942, rather than any smaller, more melo dramatic concet of vindictive revenge. Rather than merely challenging the people of the United States to Remeber Pearl Harbor, let the theme be, Remeber Pearl Harbor, Wrok, Fight, Sacrifice. Work, Fight, Sacrifice, Those three words answer for every single soul in the land the question, What can we do to help? Some must fight the actual battles on Ion and on sea and in the air. Some must work to supply that which is needed to carry on the fight. All must sacrifice many things dear and pleasant, to assure a future of freedom to ourselves and those who follow after. On this anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a united and free nation confident in its strength, will: 1. Honor and remember the mein and women who have already given their lives in this struggle. 2. Give thanks to God for its survival of the unprovo ked attack of ruthless enemies. 3. Clear Headedly assess that which has been done in one yar of war, and what lies ahead to be done in terms of Work, Fight, Sacrifice. 4. Rededicate its strength, its time, its wealth and its very life to preserving a concept of life more precious than Individual life itself, to Work, Fight, Sacrifice for all that is contained in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United Staaes of America.
