This is the symbol that repre-'
sents eventual destruction of Hij-
lerism. Although the "V"' is verbo-
ten by the-Nazis, it is now seen on
all sides in the overrun countries
of Europe. It is also heard tapped
out on tables and store-windows-
three short and one long, its equiva-

STo date, infuriated Nazis have
thrown into jail thousands of people
in occupied Burope for scrawling
the "V" on walls and sidewalks,
and for "telegraphing" it by means
of -applause at their movies..

Logical Site For
New Shell Depot
Data Being Furnished Navy De-
partment In Effort to Get
Last month the house naval
committee was told that the. navy
desired to establish a new $2,300,
000 naval ammunition magazine in
the Gull Coast area so that "long
haul shipments to the fleet in the
Caribbean and to the Panama
Canal Zone may be. made without
ship escort." It was contemplated
at that time to locate the depot in
the vicinity of New OGrelans..
But since that announcement
was made it has been decided to
designate the magazine somewhere
else in the Gulf Coast area instead
of at New Orleans due to the fact
that there is no assurance that
the land would be available at New
Orleans. The project would re-
quire approximately 10,000 acres
-With New Orleans out of the

HITLER'S STOOGES MOVE IN PACIFIC
You don't have to be an authority on in-
ternational power politics to figure out why
the Vichy government invited Japan to oc-
cupy and "protect" French Indo-China. The
Machiavellian hand of Hitler can be clearly
seen in this potentially explosive move. The
Vichy government is completely a pawn of
the Nazis. And Hitler, who is now fighting
the two-front war which he always said he
would avoid, may profit materially from
trouble in the Pacific. So long as the Japan-
ese saber-rattlers remain in power and pur-
sue their imperial policy, it will be necesasry
to keep much of the American navy in the
Pacfic, and it will also be necessary to di-
vert much of our army and military supplies
to our Pacific possessions. It is altogether
likely that what Hitler would like to see is a
full-dress war between Japan and the United
States, in order to keep us from giving maxi-
mum aid to Britain.
This government's reaction to Japan's move
into Indo-China was precisely what was ex-
pected. 'We have long been criticized for per-
mitting oil exports to the Nipponese-and it
is an ironical fact that while we have been
giving our moral support and some material
support to China, we have also been supply-
ing Japan with most of the gasoline that has
made the war against China possible. Presi-
dent Rooesvelt, queried at a press conference,
said frankly that the government had per-
mitted oil exports in the belief that if we
shut off these vital supplies Japan would at
once attempt to seize Indo-China and other
rich areas, and so cause a Pacific war of the
first magnitude. In other words, the govern-
ment was trying to localize conflict. That
policy has now proven a failure. A start to-
ward an embargo on all commerce with Japan
has been made, and Britain and her posses-
sions have followed suit.
From now on, a treasury license will be
needed to take any Japanese assets out of
this country, or to send anything of any kind
to Japan. As a press dispatch said: "The as-
set 'freezing' order put the treasury in a po-
sition to turn the economic screws on Japan.
Just how hard they will be applied may de-
pend on future events in the Far East."
It is difficult to exaggerate the importance
of the economic whip we hold over the Jap-
anese empire. Japan buys the bulk of many
vital supplies from us. On top of that, we have
long been Japan's best customer. Most ex-
perts believe that if Japan loses the Ameri-
can market she will be in a desperate eco-
nomic position. So far as we are concerned,
our sales to Japan are but a drop in the bucket
compared with our total trade. We buy noth-
ing from Japan we cannot do without. Mrs.
America may have to forego silk stockings
in the future, and use substitutes such as ny-
lon, but that can hardly be considered a great
From the purely military point of view,
Japan has quite a job on her hands. The war
in China seems as far from conclusion as
ever, and involves a tremendous drain on
Japanese resources-men as well as materials.
Britain is no weakling in the Far East, and
the Churchill government is taking as tough
a line with Japan now 'as we are. In the
event of actual hostilities, full naval collab-
oration between England and the United
States will undoubtedly be immediately ef-
fected. Some think that this country should
base ships at the great Singapore base now.
There is little doubt that Britain would give
enthusiastic permission if the right to do this
There is also talk to the effect that Hitler
may persuade Japan to attack Asiatic Russia.
That, too, would be a tough assignment. Rus-
sia is powerful in the East, and the Japanese
army isn't regarded too highly by the mili-
tary experts. However, those who know the
Japanese character think it very possible that
the Nipponese war lords may have finally
decided to shoot the works, even if that
eventually involved national suicide and the
reduction of Japan to the status of a third-
IT DOESN'T MATTER NOW
(E. H. Thomas in The Cadiz (Ky.) Record)
He was just a kid on that day in 1927, Mr.
Lindbergh, when he read the big headline in
the paper. "On His Way to Paris," it said,
and he prayed a rather crude boyish prayer
that you'd get there safely. You got there
safely and had all the world at your feet. Yes,
you had more than that; this boy worshipped
you; you were his hero-he called you
"Lindy." Perhaps they all did, but in this
boy's dreams it was just he and Lindy.
You flew many miles in a plane together-
a plane conjured in the imagination of a boy,
as real to him then as the bombs dropping
over England should be to you now.
That boy prayed another prayer, prayed
that he would some day see you face to face
-shake your hand, hold it tight and tell you
how he helped you in your flight across the
Atlantic. He was never alone during those
days, you were always with himn wherever he
went. You never knew it, of course, but you
were there just the same. And the cardboard
Distinguished Flying Cross, copied from th,
picture of the real one you got, rested on his
chest exactly the way you wore it: your pic-
tures, clipped from newspapers, hung by the
dozens on the walls of his room.
Fourteen years have passed since that great
day in your and his life. Things are different.
The boy has grown up, has come face to face
with a world that isn't pleasant, but one .wc
are all going to have to face-including yoiu,
Mr. Lindbergh. That dream of the boy, that
some day you two would meet, he held for a
long time. But now-it doesn't matter, Mr.
Lindbergh. That boy loves life,, loves freedom
and his country; and that boy with whom youl
flew in the cockpit of dreams may some day
fly again; but this time he will fly-alone. 1
know, Mr. Lindbergh, for I was that boy.
THE DOCTRINE OF HATRED
The majority of Americans readily admit
that Senator Burt Wheeler is doing every-
thing in his power to embarrass the present
national administration. However, it is ad-
mitted that they hesitate to think that a
member of the national congress is a willing
tool of Nazi Germany.
We don't think Senator Wheeler is in com-
munication with Hitler, neither do we think
he is the willing tool of the German dictator.
But we do think his doctrine is predicated
on the same human emotion as Hitler's, and
that doctrine is hatred.
The Montana senator has an undying and
uncompromising hatred for President Roose-
velt. That one emotion has blinded him to
every other possible human element. His sole
purpose in life just now is to block any meas-
ure which bears the president's seal of ap-
proval. He doesn't care if it's for the best
interest of the nation or not.
We never have thought Hitler would win,
because his doctrine is based on hatred. Some
day, somewhere, even if the human elements
are unable to stop him, a divine providence
will. No doctrine of hatred will ever succeed
in this world-and that includes the doctrine
of Senator Burt Wheeler.-Florida Advocate.
