Davies arrived in Moscow May 19 with the President's Stalin. The Times tag .itt hea o coton a Sri on and has not yet that Admiral Lest They Die in Vain Memorial Day of 1943 is a time of of soul-searching for us all. It is a challenge from both the past and the one which we can ignore only at our peril. On this day we honor our the blood which has come down to us from our ancestors and the blood which has been shed for us by our sung and throughout the years. It is a time of going back to our of appraising the qualities which have made America great. As we lay wreaths upon the graves of our own and the nation's loved we hark back to the virtues which contributed to the building of a great people. Of the resolution and resourcefulness of those who hewed a civilization from the of the heroism of those who preserved it from outside aggres- sion of the virtue which defended it against corruption and iniquity within. And even the dullest among us realizes that these times call for a resurgence of these for a revival of the national spirit. Let no one assume that virtue develops automatically in the minds and hearts of a people. On the They are produced only by careful by cons- cious attention to the factors of our destiny. We see about us every day grim evidence of citi- zens missing golden opportunities to display their pa- triotism. Men and women who might rise to heroism under more dramatic circumstances find themselves un- able to practice the unspectacular virtues which are a real contribution to the cause of humanity in the present crisis. Thus we have many men who refuse to subjugate their own self-interest to the national perhaps because they see no necessity for it. Some of them go on strike for higher wages. Others piuiueei oa war loiuracis. Sull others operate black markets while thousands of well-meaning citizens pa- tronize them. A considerable number stretch the truth to the limit to get C gasoline ration then act as though gasoline rations were not intended for them. Against such practices Memorial Day cries out in protest to all who have ears to hear. Quietly and in- sistently it demands that we compare our actions with those of the heroes we that we judge our own patriotism by the standards which they have set for us. If we fail to measure up the burden is on our own conscience. Of those who place money above patriotism the gold stars in our new service flags you think we gave our lives for the meager wages the government paying To those who value convenience phy- sical comfort more than patriotism you think we .fcraved the -jungles of the iiet sands of the bleak shores of Attu island because we found comfort and convenience Viewed from this there is a practical value to Memorial Day. It can help to make us better citizens if we only will learn the lessons it teaches. Time moves apace. It is a far cry from the Blue and the Gray of the first Memorial Day to the present. In the background we see bobbing through the shadows of our history the dusty riders of the plains who won the West for the campaign hats of the Span- ish the olive drab of the first World War. They throughout the length and breadth of our land. Their ashes hallow our soil. They were heroes all. And they bid us be heroes also lest they have died in vain. Polls for School Election Jap Attu Force Now in Area of 4 Square Miles WASHINGTON United States troops have captured Fish-Hook im- portant Japanese stronghold on Attu the navy re- ported and the main enemy force on the island is now contained in a mountainous area of only three to four square miles. The conquest of Fish-hook flanking the main remaining Jap- anese-held was described by officers here as contributing to the security of American lines stretching northward along-the base of the north eastern peninsula on Attu into the Chichagof harbor area. A navy communique said that the Japanese positions on Fish-hook ridge were entrenched above the cloud line and American soldiers had to scale 60 degree ridges in the face of strong enemy fire to reach them. Tanks Advance Army troops were reported in a navy communique late Friday to have advanced along a ridge com- manding the area between the two lakes and other units assaulted a second ridge running at right an- gles to the Cories-Canlrca line. This latter pttpnrts of Fish- hook ridge and as a result of the which followed artillery and mortar a Japanese strong point on fish-hook ia the navy's neutralized. Meanwhile patrol units felt out Japanese strength on still a third ridge extending eastward from the floor of Chichagof valley. In an earlier bulletin Friday the navy had reported that on Wednes- day attack by U. S. troops to eliminate the enemy from the ridge south of Lake Cories is in There was no further report on this but some authorities here said that in order to make an effective assault on the southern end of the Cories-Canirca line units of the American forces must have Bremen through Uife ildge positions south of Lake Cories. Vote-Clean Out-Foxholes The overall American strategy obviously was to slash the enems- held territory up into small pieces and clean these out one by one. The detailed reports of advances in the last few days indicated that this plan was being effectively carried through although the job was a slow- one. One of the it was lies in the fact that the Japanese have dug themselves into the hills high in the mountains above the fog line so that American soldiers must fight their way up the snowy slopes of Attu's mountains and clean out the fox holes and machine gun nests in the sunlit heights above before they can push on with secure areas behind them. northern defenses anew.
