THANKS, PAUL JOHNSON
SDear 'Editor Bill-I was reading
in the home town paper that you
were collecting shoulder patches of
the fellows in the service, so here
is my contribution. This particular
patch is for the .Second Air Force
and it is worn by the fellows who
are assigned to that certain air
force. I don't wear it, for I am not
assigned, to it. As you probably
know, there are different airforces
all over the globe andi all of them
have their separate insignia.
I read about my good pal and
nextdoor neighbor, Gordon Farrms,
and was very glad to hear of him.
It might interest you to know that
we have known each other and
lived right near each other since
we were about seven years old. It
is always good to hear about the
old gang, and that is where The
Star comes in. I always look for-
wardi to getting the, home news.
Not any news out here in this
dry, dusty climate at present. Will
try, to write more next time. Was
glad to hear "our town" did so
well in the, bond drive.

a Study This Picture
Army Signal Corps Photo
Sgt. William Barbero, while taking the picture of his buddies who died
to take Hill 700 in the far off Southwest PFcific, expressed a desire that
it be published in the United States to arouse the folks back home to the
fact that our boys are dying for them. Here, Sergeant, is the picture for
all to see. Other pictures he made of that fight were so grisly-and in
some instances so clear that recognition may have been possible so the
Army has restricted them. Look again and buy War Bonds today.

Wounded In Action
Goes Ashore,,In Normandy on D-
Day; Receives Shrapnel Wounds
After Nine Days of Action
First Sergeant Leonard Belin of
this city suffered injuries from
enemy grenade shrapnel ,on June
15 in Normandy. Letters from Sgt,
Belin written from a base hospital
somewhere in England' June 23 and
24 say shrapnel lodged in his right
leg, lower abdomen and above the
elbow on the left arm. None of his
wounds are, believed to be serious,
however, since he writes that he
expects to rejoin his outfit soon.
Leonard landed in France on D-
Day and saw nine days of inten-
sive action before he was flown to
England for treatment immedl-'
ately after he was wounded.
Mrs. W. J. Belin, Leonard's
mother, received a message from
the adjutant general's office on
July 4 announcing her son's in-
juries as serious. Letters frmhn
the wounded' soldier, however,
seem more encouraging.
Prior, to his induction into the
armed services in February, 1941,
Leonard was employed by the'St.
Joe Paper Company. It is remem-
bered hene, that his draft number
was the first to come 'up among
white selectees. After three years
of training j. this country he em-
barked February of this year and
was stationed in England until the
day of the invasion.

Our Country Right or Wrong
VICTORY DEPENDS ON HOME FRONT
A blunt warning that the war is not yet
won came recently from the three top mili-
tary leaders of the United States following a
flying visit to the Normandy. battlefront
These chiefs of staff stated, moreover, that
the speed with which our boys march to Ber-
lin will depend in large measure on the sup-
port they get on the home front.
"The battles now in progress entail heavy
losses in materiel which American industry
must replace," they said in a joint statement,
"and any slackening in the needed production
will only delay ultimate victory."
Pulpwood is one of the most important of
these materials of war upon which our fight-
ing forces are depending. Production has been
pretty good this year, but it still isn't enough
to keep pace with war requirements.
We cannot fail at this crucial period with-
out nullifying the sacrifices of the hundreds
of American boys who died on the Normandy
beaches. We can speed the day of victory by
cutting'all tl\e pulppAod, eed to keep riili-
tary supplies a'nd equipment flowing iii un-
broken convoys to the battlefields of France.
Now that the government has sanctioned
the manufacture of alcohol for beverage pur-
poses, we imagine production soon will reach
JAP CLEVERNESS BOOMERANGS
The Japs, who have no conscience when it
comes to devising schemes for subjugating
lands 'they conquer, conceived at the China
war's outbreak the fiendish plan of killing the
Chinese will to resist by encouraging among
the masses the demoralizing habit of opium
smoking. To this end the drug was made
available in prodigious quantities and at prices
well within the average coolie's'reach, to such
good effect that soon whole provinces were
submitting almost apathetically to Japanese
Jap leaders smiled to themselves when they
thought of the profit they would make when
presently they would force the growing mil-
lions of hopelessly enslaved addicts to pay
more-much more-for this body and soul-
destroying product of the poppy.
At the same time, they carried out an en-
ergetic campaign among their own soldiers
to impress them with the evils of opium
smoking, stressing, that death and dishonoi
would be the lot of any Japanese discovered
to be a victim of the drug.
However, recent radio reports out of Tokio
announcing discovery of new preparations de-
signed to "break the narcotic habit more ef-
fectively than any other," give rise to a grow-
ing belief among Allied military men that Irn.
vading Nips themselves have fallen victim to
the opium curse. They believe that Tojo s
men, sadly disillusioned as a result of Allieo
successes, in growing numbers are seeking
relief from despair in- fantastic poppy-inspired
dreams. Some even go so far as to say that
the opium habit may have become a serious
problem in the Japanese army.
Certainly, if such turns out to be the case,
it is nothing less than poetic justice, and ma-y
well mean that the end of effective Jap re-
sistance to the Allies is in sight.-Miami Post.
