I Congratulations


on the great victory over the Axis in Europe which ended with
the German Surrender on Monday of this week. .

In writing the final chapter of that side of the war, the
American Army with many Okeechobee County boys ip the
thick of the fight, has again demonstrated its superior fighting
.. i S qualities and equipment over the forces that set out to conquer
\ the world.

/ '" But with the defeat of Italy and Germany the war is
only half over, as the Japs'are yet to be decisively defeated, and
that will no doubt take a long time and much hard fighting.

Slap the Japs-buy more Bonds during the Seventh War
