S&:OND FRONT Above our heads the air is rife with speculation concern ing the big push. l\hen will the invasion start and vd:lere will the first blow fall?. That is the insisten. t question fonned by the present shape of events. It is well that in having the alternative of choice our mill tary leaders have wisely decided against ill-prepared and illr-timed thrusts, so costly in men and the goods of war. 'Ihe various conmando excursions against Gennan strongpoints and the full scale aerial assaults that are .para lyzing their industries are both part of the deliberate glllle the Allies are playing in the war of nerves. Night and day the work of softening up the enemy continues. On the 1 and, his annies fall back everywhere, or hold their ground at a ter rific price. On the sea 'his. surface. craft face a superior e n any. His planes are being knocked. out of the sky and his cities are being obli tera ted in the carefully planned prelude to a second front. Impatimce and eagerness to get going are of course natural to us as Americans and soldiers, but if wars can. be won with an appreciable saving in lives, then obviously that is the kind of war to wage. Accordingly, let us be grateful for the delay in the fbnnal invasion of the con tinent. The casualties will cone all too soon on that day of battles. And in the thick of fi gtJ ting, a s men and m a chines fail, the r e will be othe r s to carry their force to th e in tended end of vic tory. 300,000 to Face January Draft Washington (CNS)-Tli.e Army and Navy are expected to call 300 ; 000 new men into the services. in January, the War Manpower Commission has learned. This quota has been set, according to the WMC so that the Army may reach its goal of 7 700 ,000 men early next year. "The first Sunday after I arrived in camp I went to a worship service in a mess hall. I was never so Lonely and depressed in all my life. I thoufht I had left everythinf behind. The bottom had dropped out of my world. In our. service the Chaplain told about Jacob Leavinf home, and beinf lonely and tired, knekJ not the God was with him In a vision of the nirltt he saw that God was present. Fellows, that thoufht tovk hold of me. I had considered that camp a God forsaken place, but then I knew it was not. I have felt Lonely at times since then, but nothinr like at first. In fact Christ has been closer to me than ever before. n This is a rreat attestation to the truth of the words of our Saviour who said, "Lo I am with yo"u alkJays, even unto the end of the world.

And on the Baltic front another Red has captured 70 towns north of Nevel in their march on Latvia, long in German hands. Thus, in 1944 despite their careful tending, the Germans can expect nr.othing 1 ess than a bumper crop of eeds from the fast dwindli.'fl"g acres of their one time flourish ing Russian preserve.

This isn't surprising because there are some things about war bonds that aren't" very simple. One thing that mystifies soldiers is the discrepancy in the dates that appear on the face of the bonds. The bonds carry two dates. One is the date of the bond itself, the other the date of issue. Don't. let the difference in the two confuse you. You see, it is the policy of the Army war bond office t6 issue all bonds within the first 15 d:tys of the month following completion of payment. Ordinarily, the subscriber is given the benefit of 30 days interest, since his bond is dated the first of the month although payment is not completed until the end of the month. .Sometimes b o n d purchasers start to worry when they do not receive the bond they've been buying on the day they expect it. The reason for these delays is that sometimes complete information is lacking by the war bond office However, if your bond is more than 15 days late you should make inquiry at the war bond office so that the records may be checked. he, 'it'll be worth the money Sergeant Gets Old Gun Overseas after alL.'
