the Philippines said recently:
"We have met less than a million
Japs so far in the Pacific
campaigns. They have three
times that many waiting for us
in their homeland and in China.
They are dug in, well equipped,
confident and determined.

we need more help from the
USA. Production power from
our warworkers is what gives

mitted to check out back numbers
of magazines, not indexed
by the "Readers' Guide," for
a period of five days, and current
numbers for the week-end

to be filed, since some of them
get misplaced and the files are
consequently incomplete.

The library's magazine service
has been used extensively
by the students and teachers
of the Slater-Marietta Schools,
and also by students of near-by
colleges. It is hoped that all
adults wishing to read along
special lines will take advantage
of this magazine service,
which should adequately take
care of the reading needs of
our patrons as they follow current
