BIG CELEBRATION WAS
A LITTLE AHEAD OF TIME
Phone information was sent out
from Boise late Saturday night tell
ing of the capitulation of the ger
mans and that the war was over.Mer
idian received the news gladly but
did not enthuse until more reliable
data was at hand. In Boise and
Nami>a however the bands were out
and there was a big jollification.The
next day—well, it was discovered that
germa ny was not ready yet to quit,
and the huns were still on the job.
There is importance however in all
this peace talk—it means that the end
is not far of, maybe this fall, but per
haps not until more brave men meet
death on the field of battle.

It Is well for us Americans not to
