The Invasion HasvOnly Begun
Our forces are winning victories by the day and
to many it may seem that the end of the war is
not far off. With the Russians staging a summer
power drive on the eastern front and the Allies
gaining a foothold in France it appears unlikely
that the Germans can hold out many months un
less they have something in reserve that has not
been sensed by Allied commanders.
That may or may not be the situation. It is true
the German lines are being shortened hourly but
unless their losses in men and materiel far ex
ceed their ability to make replacements they will
be able to hold out for a long time. As it is the
world has not been apprised of the real strength
of that inner fortress of Europe which the Rus
sians are rapidly approaching and which the Al
lies on the west hope to reach before many weeks.
If the Germans driven out of most of their con
quered territory, resort to a decked stand on home
ground it may require many months to crush them.
Right now the British and Americans are busy
improving their positions on ground gained thru
the invasion. The bulk of the invasion army and
its supplies remain to be moved to the continent.
How fast that is being done has not been reveal
ed but since the fall of Cherbourg it can be and
probably is rapid. The Allied high command is
prepared either for a quick, decisive blow, or,
failing in that, a long, hard campaign.
The drive for victor has been successful thus
far and no small amount of credit is due the folks
at home for lending thieir money to provide the
sinews of war. This country at present is embark
ed upon a campaign to raise the hugest sum of
money ever proposed in one bond issue $16,
000,000,000. Oregon is pledged to raise $125,000,-
000 and Morrow county is down for $356,000,000.
All of this is rather breathtaking until we stop
and think about past drives when more than that
much money was invested through oversubscrip
tions. It is a huge sum and has cost many a head
ache to county chairmen and other bond. officials
throuoghout the land, yet there is a feeling that
the issue will be subscribed with perhaps a mar
gin to spare. It will be subscribed when all of our
people come to realize that starting the inva
sion did not mean an immediate ending of hos
tilities but rather was the real opening of the big
offensive that will cost us much in blood as well
as in money.
Our tjoys are giving their blood. All we're asked
to do is lend our money.
That Word Again
This week-end starts a holiday period and des
pite gas restrictions there -will be a general exo
dus in all directions by people who will want to
take advantage of a three-day layoff and get just
as far as their coupons will permit. Not a few
will trek to the mountains, for the wooded terrain
is beautitful right now and the wily trout are still
rising to the fly or grasping the baited hook. To
those who are accustomed to the mountains the
word is unnecessary but to those who are not fa
miliar with conditions in the timber it is advisable
to remind them of the word caution. That's , it,
be cautious, careful, discreet, thoughtful, or what
ever you may term it but in no wise be careless.
Visitors to the forested areas will be welcome,
say forest officials. After all, the forest does not
belong to the forest service but rather to "we the
people". The forest service is charged with the
management anr protection of the timber and the
grazing land in- specified areas. It is not the func
tion of the service to keep people off the reserve
not so long as the , people comply with rules
and regulations essential to the protection Qf the
forested areas. When those practices are violated
and damage to the reserve results, it is the duty
of the forest management to see that blame is
placed where it belongs and that so far as possible
there will be no recurrence of such damage.
The mountains beckon those whose gas supply
warrants no big trip or those who would rather
spend their three-day vacation communing with
Tiature. It will be difficult for many to stifle that
impulse to get in the car and drive to the city, the
beach or some favorite fishing haunt and if one
would give in a little to the urge it would be
better to stay within Qur own surroundings than
to add to the difficulties of main line transporta
tion and city housing and eating facilities. There
may be fun in elbowing through the crowds and
fighting for what you think are your rights in the
matter of getting seats on a train or bus, but after
all is said and done one still has to come home to
rest. At this particular time we would advise the
mountains for a safer, saner Fourth of July, with
the added word of coution to be careful with
matches, cigarettes and camp fires. Remember
that tword caution.
