' WHERE WILL WORLD WAR II BE WON?
The Duke of Wellington said that the battle of Waterloo
was won on the playing fields of Eton. After this war is
over some historian is going to say that it was won on the
campuses of America's schools and colleges. He won't be wrong.
While German and Italian youth were goose stepping for
Hitler and Mussolini, American youth were playing desperately
on the football fields and basket ball courts for the honor of
their schools. Hitler's youth were compelled to march and
drill and to train for war, but American youth voluntarily
studied for peace and trained for sports. The German organ-
izations built strong, blindly bodies and unquestioning,blind-
ly obedient minds. America filled her youth with the spirit
of team work, .the will to win, and the ability to win. She
'helped them build well balanced bodies, and good muscular
coordination. dThe German athlete isaa machine capable of
doing only what he has been taught. The American athlete
is trained to handle himself under all conditions. His
timing is carefully developed. Every muscle in his body is
strengthened systematically. He is taught the basic principles
of his game and he practices them until he does them auto-
maticly but when he is in a game he makes his own decisions
according to the circumstances.
The German youth fights as he plays. He is a fighting
machine capable of only certain tasks under limited conditions.
He does not enjoy a battle just as he doesn't a game. He
has no background of sports to give him the spirit of a
contestant in a game for his games had been part of a regi-
mented training program in which he had no chance to 'show
any individuality at all. The American youth :fights for his
country just as he played for his college. A battle is a
test for himself 'and his country and he puts himself whole-
heartedly into it. He risks his life in war as he risked
his limbs in football games. He enters a battle as- he
entered a game, with a good knowledge of his own and his
enemies weaknesses and strengths, with the conviction .that
hinis fighting for the right side, and the belief that he will
All of Americas fighting forces are tremendously strenth-
ened by her athletes but the air force benefits most. 'In a
bomber team work, muscular coordination, perfect timing, and
stamina are as important as a knowledge of one's job. These
things are not got while in the army or navy but while on the
gridirons, baseball diamonds, and basket ball courts.
LEND-LEASE A POWERFUL WEAPON
Lend-Lease is an American device by which the United
Nations aid one another with supplies and services.
' From 1951 to l958,when the second world war was develop-
ing, we stayed out of the world struggle, but finally from,
our desire for security' we passed the cash-and-carry law to
enable us to arm those, who in fighting for their security,
might assure ours too.

let Britain, China, and the rest perish.
The solution to our problem was the Lend-Lease 'Act

Lend-Lease is, not only between the United States andfq
other members of the United Nations but also between other
members. Up to the end of 1942 Great Britain had sent more
weapons, overseas to fighting fronts than we had. She sent
Russia more than 2500 tanks and more than 3000 planes.
We are familiar' with the fact of supplies going from
this country to the United Nations, but we are less familiar
with the help being given us by others.
Take New Zealand as an example. All the mean vegetables
eggs, fruits, butter, and cheese eaten by our troops in New
Zealand are given without charge under Lend-Lease. Last fall
our soldiers got so many eggs that New Zealanders were reduced
to three eggs to a person each week for several months. Two
large hospitals, and hotels have been turned over to American
troops. Our troops are also transported free on their rail-

food to our troops on Bataan. Australians are the world's

before the troops leave our ports because they are carried by

soldiers in the Hritish Isles.
Our soldiers are supplied, without cost, with arms,
several hundred Spitfire planes and many field guns. Britain
has provided us with over a million square yards of portable
airfield runways and are supplying several 'thousand more.
We have received supplies such as 15,000 bombs 70,000 rounds
of 6-in. shells over 200 thousand anti-tank mines, electric
batteries hand grenades, parachutes, and many new hospitals.
Almost all the bread for our soldiers is made from
British flour under Lend-Lease, and they have agreed to sup-
ply us with potatoes, fruits, vegetables, jam, and salt.

WOMEN AND THE WAR
American women are no longer bystanders at war. They're
in it up to their ears. Soon fresh troops will 'replace our
weary boys on the icy plateaus and in stormy jungles reinforce-
ment made possible by alert-eyed girls in olive drab and navy
twill. For day by day these girls are replacing Army and Navy
men at desks in recruiting and supply offices, has well as big
behind -- the -- lines jobs, as engineers, cooks, chemists, and
specialists of all kinds.
And throughout the United States millions of other women
are replacing men needed for battle. Not all are in uniform,
but all are earning their stripes. It may be in unbrave sweaty
ways like welding, driving milk wagons or taxis, riding cranes
in a shipyard, or the less spectacular job of being both mother
and father to tomorrow's children.
,All these things the American woman does gladly. For she
knows to the aching depths of her heart what kind of war this
is. It isn't for boundaries, for profit or loot. lt's her
war. Her men are 'sacrificing their lives for everything she
loves and believes in,for the way she wants life to be for her-
self and her loved ones. For the American family is the whole
kernel of democracyg the wholesome give and take, the security
from fear, the free play of the individual, yet his compassion
for and dependence upon the others. Tocreate such a nation we
once fled from the Gld World. H
We can no longer call this the American dream.For through-
out the world these ideals of a more perfect society haveseeped
into each secluded valley, across craggy mountaintcps, into
the hearts and souls of distant suffering people. The whole
world is our neighbors
It is a dream we must share and help come trues But first
we must win this war. And to that end the American woman is
dedicated today, whether she is nurturing young spirits inthese
ideals with spankings and lessons and birthday candles, helping
produce grain and pigs as well as tanks and guns or cradling
some wounded sailor's head in the pitching seas of the North
Atlantic. Not to mention those who have enrolled in the several
women's corps of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, and Marines.

WOMEN AND THE WAR Ccontinuedl
Other emergencies have seen American men compulsory reg-
istered, and drafted too. But never before has the hand of
compulsory enrollment been laid on women. Women are taking the
place of men on trolley cars and elevators, as waiters, stock
clerks, and taxicab drivers. Right now at least 600,000 more
women have jobs then had them last year. The War Manpower
Commission estimates that six million women will be engaged in
direct war work by the end of 1945.
The American Women's Voluntary Services is a permanent
national organization, created in anticipation, of the part, that
American women can play in protecting their homes -and in serving
their communities and country.
A Remember the Somme, the Aisne, the Mouse-Argonne offensive?
Casualties, mud war. War and the people of America, from every
Valk of life, singing that they would Ukeep the home fires Burn?
American armies advancing in North Africa, men from our coun-
try in the Solomons, in China, India, Australia, and in every
part of the globe, to avenge Lidice and Rotterdam and Pearl
Harbor. This is 1945.
' But today, the women of this country are not alone singing
"keep thehome fires burning." In gallant service to their country
they are doing just that. -
' ,Through the United' States Organization, pledged to give a
Nhome away from homeu to all American men in uniform, more than
600,000 women today are giving their professional knowledge and
their talents in home-making to fulfill that pledge.
' Not all women, however, are able to give as much time to
this work as they might like. To the women having definite respons-
ibilities which she must meet and which limit the time Gf her
disposal, the American Red Cross is the ideal agency through which
she may put her talents to work.
One of the most pressing problems which has faced defense
councils all over the country is that of carrying the war pro-
grams into every home. There is an important new field here for
women of initiative and leadership, the newly developed Block
System. This system will organize the community for action in
the field of civilian war services just as it is organized for
action in an air raid. Each block or neighborhood chooses block
leaders. They report to a sector block leader who in turn reports
to a zone leader. These block leaders will, in almost every case
be women, for their job is the daytime job of carrying the need
for action, explaining the way the battle goes on Guadalcsmmal or
in Tunisia or at Stalingrad. ,

Women are used for whatever work they can do. They are in
all army camps in the navy and in the air forces. In the last
named service many of them have been killed in the bombing of
airdromes, and they have met 'their deaths like soldiers. They
do clerical work and code work, and are numerous in the intellw
igent service. They can become officers of every rank up to
the two or three highest.
Girls have become WAACS, WAVES, SPARS, MARINES, and WAFS.
They are training to become nurses. Older women as well as girls
have volunteered for the innumerable branches of the American Red
Cross, for the American Women's Voluntary Services, for the
Office of Civilian Defense. They are serving as Airplane Spotters

world may once again be free.

p srooxcs, I say
I was on vacation a short time ago staying in an old deserted
mansion in which human foot had not stepped, and by the looks,- hu-
man hand had not weilded a dust cloth for many long years.
People whispered that there was some manner of spirits living
,in thisnnld deserted house. I being an adventurous person, wanted
to find out the truth of these statements. Most of all, I think
to show the townspeople that I could stay in a haunted house all
night without being harmed.
Just so I wouldn't be all alone, a million miles from nowhere,
which was five miles from town, I brought my maid, Agatha, with me.
Needless to say she was a timid soul, as are all maids I have the
misfortune to hire. -But she came..
On the second night of our stay at the old mansion I was lying
in bed, sleepless. It was one of those stormy electrically charged
nights. One could hear the moaning of the trees as the wind passed
through their branches and in .the distance could be heard the low
growl of thunder. Suddenly, I jumped! what was that ? Above the
rattle of the storm I seemed to hear a weird loud muaicaless music.
I listened again. I could still hear itg it was coming from down-
Agatha, hearing the sounds at the same time I did, came softly
running into my room. Her face was as white as a sheet and she was
trembling violently. I calmed her a little and took in my shaking
hand a revolver which I secretly kept by my bed. My knees were so
wobbly and knocked together so much as I started down the stairs
that the apparation must surely be able to hear me I thought.
Suddenly, there was a high wailing note accompanied by a stroke
of lightning,which sent me almost fainting, back up the stairs.
When I had calmed myself, and the wild beating of my heart had ceas
ed a little, I started down the stairs again. One, two,three, four,
I counted the old, rotten and sqeaky steps,while I gripped tightly
the revolver all the time. I reached the bottom step and felt my
way through the dark kitchen to the living room door. '
In the living room stood a large old piano. Much to my horror,
in a flash of lightning, I saw something which to me looked like

watching, watching, as they continued to move across the tuneless
keys. All at once a flash of lightning illuminated the room, show-

mouse, it was, of all things: Agatha's white cat.

A SOLDIER'S LETTER fcontinuedl
My dear son,
I Have been so.anxious about you, as you said you haven't
been receiving my letters. I donft suppose it can be helped
but I hope you get this, as it would make me happy.
Dear son, what I am about to write isn't easy and please
when you read this be the soldier that I know .you are. Dear,
death is not spoken in kind easy words, but I know it is near
the time for me to leave this world and I can gladly say I am
proud to have my son serving our country. Remember dear, never
be afraid of what your heart says is right.
- Your devoted mother
Jerryfs eyes were closed. Joe looked from the letter to
Jerry. There was a peaceful smile on his face as his eyes closed
for Jerry knew he would be meeting his mother soon and he knew
also that he hadn't failed his country.
- JUST A DOG
He is a dogg small, wiry, alert, with short stiff legs,
spotted with black.. His long shabby hair fwhite but with
large black blots? gives him an appearence of being fat, but
when wep, he shrinks away to-a trembling. skinny bag of bones.
A short bushey tail, curled up over his back, wags'ddubtfu11y
every time you speak to him. If your hand is within reach,
he will push his cool, wet nose into it, begging with his
eyes for you to scratch his ears, or pat his back. When you
get close enough, you can see that the hazy blue disks set
deep in his brown worried eyes seem to give out a lurid light.
He can express feelings with his ears that require all the
features of a human to express. He makes them lie down in
shame when anyone scolds him, or makes them stand boldly erect
when anyone calls him. Q
- Alertness is his outstanding quality. He is never re-
laxed even when sleeping, but ready to jump at every sound or
movement. When the people come near the house he hastens to
challenge them with high pitched, rasping voice.

MY SON JIM
For the tenth time since Jimmy's letter arrived less than an
hour ago, Irene Jones removed her son's letter from the :envelope
and read it through. It was impossible, her Jimmy married and
bringing his bride home with him son his furlough. W You'll love
Leila, reallv you will, mom. U Jimmy has scrawled in his distinctive
writing across the paper, nonce you get to know her. Leila teaches
the second grade in one of the mountain Schools, Her parents are
garmers and live in a lovely little old fashioned house in Brook-

Irene Jones let tears come and thev splattered like raindrops

A reminder of an early love,
That one never forgets.

MY SON JIM fcontinuedl Q
Irene was surprised when she looked and saw Leila decending the
stairs, a vision of blonde loveliness, in a frock of silk crepe
in which she dressed for her first dinner with Jim's fami1y,- a gown
of the softest blue which accented her eyes and played up to her
golden ringlets. Leila was perfectly poised and appeared to enjoy
the formality of the meal and if she felt ill at ease, she did not
reveal it. Irene was amazed bv her new daughter's charming manners.
But resentment still gnawed at her heart. Why cou1dn't 1Jim have
marriedione of his 'own set as she had always hoped?
It was down right embarrassing when Leila followed Irene in to
the library later that evening. U Mother Irene, n she started in a
soft weak voice, HI know it's difficult for sou to have me here
You see, Jim told'me all ahout von, Your plans for him, his future
and evervthing i After a monent's silence she continued, nJim was
afraid I wouldn't like you, but I wasn't. I knew Jim's mother must
be someone fine to have reared such a lovely hc? as Jim. And now it
is for me to measure up, so that You will like me.
Resentment left lrenefs face. She crushed the girl to her.
There were tears in her voice, but her ewes were shining because
she knmwthgn thatleilammwas just the firl for her Jimmy, and that
she would love her as if she were her own daughter.

Since the government has started drafting men for mili-

are phvsically unfit. One method of improving this situa-
tion is to introduce physical education into high schools
all over the country. .Here at Gilman we weren't able to
start until the middle of January. The boys and girls take
calisthenios for forty-five minutes twice a week, the boys
Mondavs and Wednesdays and the girls Tuesdays and Fridays.
The boys are under the direction of Mr. Black and the girls
under the direction of Miss Greenleaf. At each session the
classes line up for roll call which is followed by a few
minutes of military drill. The next half hour is devoted
to various kinds of exercise. If there is any time left
over, it is used for a game or contest.

Walton had the .hifhest averafe of 75 and Rebecca Tavlor had
the highest score for any one string--96.
March 50 was the date, the time - 6:50, the place was

history took place. This match was five boys and Mr. Black
against five girls and' Miss Greenleaf. The competitors were
Ida Walton against Edward Euchlin, Frances Iveney against
Frazier Peckham, Rebecca Taylor against Luther Phillips Betty
Wescott acainst Fred Hucklin, and Miss Greenleaf against Mr.

took Hr. Flack by 40 pins. Suppose he'll ever live it down??
With such an example as this to lead them, the'girls just had
to rin the next string. They did too--by l pin. It was in
the third and last string that the girls really got going and
took the -boys 21 pins. Miss Qreenleaf rolled the highest
score of the tournament which was lll. Frazier Peckham came

THE SENIOR AND SJPHOMORE PLAYS
Never in all the years of Gilman High School plays has there
been two better ones than the senior and sophomore performan-
ces of February 4, 1945! The Barrymores themselves would havetenx
surprised at the remarkable acting in UQuiet Pleaseu and UBuddy
Buys an Orchidn.
Outside of the Northeast, Harbor Neighborhood Hall, before
the plays, a number of policemen stood in the miserable rain di-
recting the traffic! The huge crowd poured into the hall hours
before the curtain. Great personalities, like the governor, a
few noted Broadway stars, and a number of reporters and photo-
graphers were present.
Finally the hall lights were off, the fcotlights were on,and
the curtain was going up. Y
The first play was the senior's, nQuiet Pleasen. This fast
moving comedy got plenty of hearty laughs from beginning to end.
The actors and actresses were: Clifford Manchester as Jeff, James
Walls, Jr. as his brother, Judd, Sunnyville Christian Society,
with Ralph Wright as Rev. Andrews, Bette Beale as Mattie, Hester
Seavey as Jessica, and Verlie Walls as Josie. Catherine, a stran-
ger, would have been played by Madeline Bucklin, but due to 'ill-
ness Charlene halls substituted.
After the first great performance, the noted Gilman High
School Band played a number of selections under the direction of
Mrs. Bradford Herrick, who also staged the plays.
Then the crowd was thrilled to see the curtain gc up on the
second performance. It was the sophomorefs play WBuddy Buys an
Orchidn. The play proved to the audience what great acting abil-
ity and talent the sophomore class has! It showed, with the
touches of comedy, the troubles and worries a teen-age boy, of
the modern day hiss., The cast was as follows: Virgil Walton as
Buddy, Rebecca Taylor as Mrs. Bradley, Euddy's mother, Charlene
Walls as Alida, his sisterg Eleanor Halls as the maid, Belle 3
and Clifton Damon would have played Bill, Alida's friend, but
due to illness, Gordan Falt substituted.
The actresses, actors, end directors were overwhelmed with
congratulations, many telegrams, flowers, and gifts! The report-
ers and photographers crowded the dressing rooms of the great per-

place at the Northeast Neighborhood Hall. They were the freshmen

It was the same kind of a night as the last two plays HBuddy
Buys An Orchidu, and WQuiet Please.n Rain and wind made it hard
for neonle to get out to see the plays. But in spite of it all a
good crowd turned out.
The freshmen play, nPaul Faces The Tire Shortagen took placed
first. It was a short comedy, and the actors xnf actresres did a
grand job. It proved to the upper classmen that the freshmen are
not so green after all. The cast was: Paul, Gordon Manchesterg
his mother, Ida Halton, his father, Everett Carter, his sister,
Mary, Florence Jordan, his girl friend, Jane, Bettr Uescottg and
his brother, Junior, Lester Joy. X
The Gilman High'School Band under the direction of Mrs.Herrkk
played a number of selections after the first play.
The junior's play "Someone For Bunny", followed the band con-
cert. The junior class reallv did a good job. This play was also
a comedv with a touch of romance on the carts of Bunny and Susie.
The cast wasz- Barbara, Frances Iveneyg Peter, Austin 'Grindleg
Bunny, Hoyt Clark, Irene, Flora Manchester, and Susie Richards,

When the entertainment was over, the crowd started buttoning
