TODAY, in our moment of partial vic-
tory, we should give reverence to the di-
vine power which has helped us reach our
first goal. Let us bow our heads and give
thanks to Almighty God for the safe voy-
age of those who shall return, and a prayer
of devotion for those smiling faces we shall
never again see.
For those who won't return as victors in
this world, we must conquer yet another
and still more vicious enemy. Our war is
not yet won. We must not stop fighting,
praying, or working until the forces of
oppression are defeated. Let our jubilation
give us the physical and spiritual strength
to reach our ultimate goal.

No, MISTER TOJO, we haven't forgotten you. We're going to
teach you how it feels to get in front of the biggest battle fleet
in the world. You're going to learn-as Berlin learned-how it
feels to watch your dreams of empire go up in flame and smoke
of four-ton block busters. You're going to learn what it means
to take a swipe at UNCLE SAM when his back is turned. MISTER
TOJO, you're going to wish you had never even heard of Pearl Harbor!

We thank Thee, our Heavenly Father, for the
victory Thou hast brought. We thank Thee
that Thou in Thy wisdom hast permitted right
and freedom to prevail.


This is the day history will remem-
ber! The day for which we have
prayed, the day wherein we dedicate
ourselves to finishing swiftly the
greater war that lies ahead.

Let us not forget our solemn obli-
gation to our fighting heroes ... and
those who have died in the name of
freedom. Each name is a reminder of
the awful cost of victory. Each name
should be a prayer so that the things
they fought and died for will not be
forgotten, but will be cherished by a a
grateful United Nations.

NAZI GERMANY LIES IN RUINS! It is well that we celebrate today
the downfall of Hitlerism ... but let us not forget that ultimate victory still
lies in the future. Let us not forget that every act of pillage, murder and rape
by Nazi Germany has been duplicated ten-fold in Nanking, Hong Kong,
Singapore, Manila, Java and Burma by the Japanese. Let us not forget that
the Freedom we have fought for and won in the Western World will not be
secure until the bloody sword has been struck from the hands of our foe in
the Pacific.
This day of triumph is also a day of dedication, a day wherein we
dedicate ourselves to finishing swiftly the war that still lies ahead. Let us not
rest on our labors, . . but let us continue to ease the burden of our fighting
