His Is a Big Task
In assuming the duties of President of the
United States, Harry Truman is faced with the
biggest task ever confronting a man elevated to
that office. That he will meet the challenge is in
dicated by his remarks addressed to the congress
and later to the men in service all over the world.
He accepted the office in a spirit of humility, as
one realizing the grave responsibilities he was
taking upon his shoulders, expressing a fervent
desire to carry the war to a successful conclusion
and win a just and lasting peace. He realizes that
this is the number one project and doubtless will
keep domestic political affairs in the background
until such time as they may rightfully come to
A dazed American people likewise realizes
the enormity of the task confronting the new pres
ident and regardless of political faith or disagree
ment with Mr. Roosevelt's policies will rally to
his support in succeeding months. It may follow
that Mr. Truman will find it necessary to replace
certain of Mr. Roosevelt's appointees. It is believ
able that he may find others more capable to serve
in high places and there is no apparent danger to
the national welfare or to the successful persecu
tion of the war in such changes.
Mr. Truman comes from a source near the com
mon people the farm. He knows the average
man and can speak his language. He may not pos
sess the political acumen of his predecessor but he
has an opportunity to serve his country in one of
its greatest crises and if he meets the crisis the
good old state of Missouri will be entered upon
the list as the mother of a great president.
SLATED FOB FURLOUGH
In the rotation of furloughs, it
has finally fallen to the lot of Tom
Wells to be the fortunate Seabee.
He -wrote Mrs. Wells to that effect
and she is anticipating his early ar
rival. Tom has been in the Pacific
area for 27 months.
Give All You Can Spare
Some of our citizens all ready have scraped
the bottom of the barrel as far as used clothing
is concerned and may be able to give a little in
the current campaign to collect 150,000,000
pounds of clothing for liberated Europeans.' There
are others who, for one reason or another, have
not participated in a clothing drive. To these we
would say, go over yo,ur supply and weed out ev
ery garment, every pair of shoes, all unused bed
ding and turn the articles in at one of the recep
tion centers. It is safe to say that every family,
every individual, has some cast-off garments
hanging around gathering dust that will not be
worn again. You may think you will wear them
but just check up on yourself and see how" many
times you have done so. Give them to your less
fortunate brothers and sisters across the Atlantic.
They have suffered more than we can imagine.
It is the least we can do in the name of humanity.
