WORCESTER DEMOCRAT AND THE LEDGER-ENTERPRISE Published Every Friday at Pocomoke City, Maryland. EDWARD J. CLARKE, Editor and Owner $1.50 The Year In Advance. Bntared at the Postoffice at Pocomoke City, Maryland, as Second Class Matter NATIONAL EDITORIAL FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1942 AID FOR THE SOVIET UNION United Nations’ grand strategy calls for maximum aid to the Soviet Union. As high American Navy and Army authorities have said, arms and other supplies for the Russians hold a top place on the lend-lease schedule. There are many good reasons why this should be so. Here are some of them: 1. The Russians have proven themselves miraculously good as fighters. That goes for the civilians who are carrying on guerilla warfare against the Nazis as well as for regular Red Army troops. Russian morale, despite the casualties she has suf fered, is said by all to be exceedingly high. The Russian peo ple’s primary emotion is one of implacable hatred for the Germans —coupled with a grim determination to crush and destdoy them. 2. It is likely that Hitler will attempt a gigantic new attack on Russia this summer—an attack whose objective will be to knock out Russia as a military power, and free the Nazi legions for ser vice elsewhere. Russia’s ability to withstand such an attack will be largely dependent on the amount of American equipment she receives. 3. Some experts are convinced that Hitler has the resources —men and material both—for only one more really big offensive. If that offensive can be broken, they reason, the Nazi regime will really be on the way to defeat. 4. The bulk of authorities still think that the number one job of the United Nations is the defeat of Germany—and that oth er objectives must be considered secondary. They feel that once Germany is beaten, or is so weakened that she will no longer be able to fight an offensive war, we can take care of our other ene mies with far greater certainty of swift victory. There are, of course, many opposed arguments. Some think That Japan is at the moment our number one enemy, and that aid to Russia should be abandoned or greatly lessened in order to give everything we can produce and transport to United Nations forces in the Pacific. But those who believe that are in the minority so far as Allied war councils are concerned. The men whose terrible responsibility it is to make fateful decisions of grand strategy aren’t minimizing Japan—but in their minds, Germany is still the greater danger. Can Russia keep on giving Hitler better than he sends ? Men who are in a position to form accurate judgments think she can. The Russian commanders have proven their abilities. Stalin has proven himself a man of extraordinary vision and military judg ment. The Russian scorched-earth policy has paid dividends— much oi the Russian territory in German possession is as non productive as so much sand. There seems little question but what a considerable part of the flower of the German army has perished on the bleak Russian earth. Good soldiers, unlike tanks | and planes and ships, cannot be swiftly replaced. The Russians claim that they have destroyed a whole generation of voung Ger man men. FALL OF BATAAN A HEAVY BLOW As Churchill, Roosevelt and other leaders forecast months ago, Japan continues to win successes in the Pacific. The fall of Bataan was a blow to the United Nations. It will release great numbers of veteran Jap troops for fighting in other theatres. The magnificent American-Filipino defenders did far more than could have been expected. They were terribly short of food, medicines, J and certain types of ammunition. Flesh and blood could only do so much. The end was foredoomed from the beginning-, and i± is to their eternal glory that they made the enemy pay a tremen dous price for his victory. The recent British ship losses n the Indian Ocean may, in the long run, prove even more serious than the loss of Bataan. They help pave the way for a Japanese drive onlndia. And it is very help pave the way for a Japanese drive on India. And it is very for India’s defense. There is news, however, on the credit side. The Japs have taken some severe blows from the United Nations’ air forces in the Australian and Burma theatres. The American Navy is con stantly picking off Jap troop and supply and fighting ships. Ac tion such as this, steadily, if slowly, brings nearer the day when final victory will be in sght. Some still look for a Jap attack on Alaska, from the Aleutians, j It is known that we are sending heavy reinforcements to Alaska, though their precise extent is, of course, a closely-held military secret. If Japan could seize Alaskan bases she would be in a position to carry the war directly to the continental United States. I She must be prevented from doing that at all costs. You can be certain that, come what may, Alaska will not be another Pearl Harbor. -j'jr. jrv i . .h- ■ Jh’- j LOOKING AHEAD We think primarily of oil as something which lubricates ma chinery and fuels engines. We think primarily of coal as a source of energy for ndustry and as a heating agent. But these two natural resources are capable of other jobs as well—jobs which are mightily important to this nation in wartime and peacetime alike. The oil industry will supply the basic ingredient for the manu facture of artificial rubber. Now that we have lost our supply of natural rubber, the synthetic product must be developed with maximum speed. The oil industry, therefore, is going to have a great deal to do with keeping our military machine running—and, in time, in supplying rubber for civilian use. The oil industry likewise is the producer of toluene, which is the basis of TNT. So the bombs which blasts our enemies have their start in the oil industry’s wells and refining plants and laboratories. From coal, we obtain one of the miracles of this age—plas tics. There are plastics which are stronger than metal. There are plastics which are flexible and easily handled. There are plas tics which are suitable for airplanes, motor cars, and a thousand and one other things. And plastics are essential to the war ef fort. Oil and coal represent the development of American natural resources at their best. These industries are always looking a - head, in search of new processes, new worlds to conquer. They will play a major part in the winning of this war. And they will play a leading part in the peacetime world of the future. UNCLE SAM MUST KNOW WHAT PRO DUCTION WILL BE j Uncle Sam. in this War effort, i must know from every production j plant just how many guns, tanks, | planes and ships he can expect to re ceive within the next few months so that he can lay his battle plans ac cordingly. i By the same token he must know from the people of the nation just how many dollars he can expect to receive voluntarily in the purchase of U. S. Savings Bonds, so that he can lay his tax plans accordingly, to pay for the War cost. The more dollars voluntarily pledged for the purchase of Bonds, the less will be the tax load. With this in mind, the Treasury Departent is conducting a nation-wide inventory by states wherein every in come earner is being asked to sign a Pledge indicating how much he will lend from that income to buy Savings Bonds. The date for this pledge campaign here in Worcester County is May 4, 5 and 6. This community is a local sector of the state and nation-wide battle front. The voluntary workers in the cam paign are civilian soldiers serving without pay, without glory or thanks, and are as surely fighting a battle j for freedom as the soldiers on the I battle fronts. They are conducting a campaign w-hich we as a nation can not afford to lose. Their only wea pon is a Pledge Card and a cheery word. They will offer every income earner the privilege and opportunity to pledge an investment in the safest risk in the world, the United States Government. Every person who is (financially able should support this Pledge Cam paign to his or her utmost financial ability. The Pledge is entirely vol untary on your part, but upon the suc cess of this campaign will depend the freedom of America, for without the tanks and guns and supplies to be purchased by your investment, your Pledge, we cannot win this war. So join willingly, cheei-fully, in this mobilization of American dollars so that America will continue to be free. Sign the Pledge and do your share.

New iron has to be well greased and warmed in the oven and then wiped out carefully before using. One pound of solid fish can usually be estimated to serve three persons. When skin, bones, head and tail are included, however, one pound should then be estimated to serve only two persons. Cook stewed tomatoes in butter for 10 minutes; then add cooked mush rooms cut into small pieces. Season with salt, pepper, celery, salt and chopped parsley. Serve on toast points.
