The cry that the different divisions
of the nation’s fighting forces do not
cooperate has been largely discredit-
ed by the way these forces functioned
in the Solomons. It would be hard to
convince the Japanese who survived
that action that our forces were
fighting each other—it was too hot
to permit of any such idea. The Na-
vy, the Marines, and the Army were
all on the job and covered themselves

The Record has lost some of the
admiration it had for Wendell Will-
kie as a result of his persistent clam-
or for a second front in Europe and
for a charter that would include more
than the Atlantic. His implication of
dereliction of duty on the part of war
officials in authority in his insistence
that a second front be hastened has
been proved not well founded by the
fact that a second front has been op-
ened and is now functioning. The
implication in the other charge that
the Atlantic Charter applied only to
the Atlantic because it was written
at sea in the Atlantic seems unwor-
thy of attention. It causes some of us
to wonder if Mr. Willkie’s desire to
be the nation’s next president doesn’t
prompt him to exert himself to keep
in the spotlight, rather than solici-
tude for the welfare of the nation.

The biggest refrigeration job we
know anything about is the one done
last week-end when the War Pro-
duction Board issued an order freez-
ing half of the butter in thirty-five
principal marketing centers. Despite
the magnitude of the job it was done
in a few minutes. Now, if a profitable
use can be found for the hot air that
goes to waste in the halls of Con-
gress. people in the oil burning areas
could forget about the rationing of
fuel oil this winter.

Soldier Visits Home;
Returns With Bride
A Ceiina citizen suggests that the
people of this town and community
take it upon themselves to send
Christmas cards to the men in train-
ing camps and to those fighting ov-
erseas. It is a good idea. If a friend
or acquaintance is in either group,
make it your job to see that he is
pleasantly surprised at Christmas
time to find that someone back home
is thinking of him and appreciating
his service. He has won the right to
be thus remembered by taking his
stand in the ranks between you and
the bullets of the Germans and the
Japs. There is no time to wait. Do it
NOW! A number of the boys are on
the Record’s subscription list and
their addresses will be furnished

WE have only to compare our condition with
that of most of the other peoples of the world
to realize that we, all of us, have most cause for
Thanksgiving at this, our annual Thanksgiving
season. . . Let us render God our thanks and
praise for His many blessings as we ask for His
continued help in this, our time of need of His
care and might.
AS our families gather, let us try and make our
homes cheery and attractive. . . Let us forget
the usual things of which now we are deprived,
and be glad that there are things we can do
without to help our country and our boys who
are giving their all.
