DRAFT QUOTAS GO UP It is not snrprising that the intensity of German resistance on the Western front is forcing our Army chiefs to re- vise their manpower requirements up- ward. The victory that seemed but weeks away in the early fall has now receded deep into 1945. In line with the increased military needs, California's draft quota will be 20 per cent higher in January than originally scheduled. In February, it is expected to be 40 per cent above De- cember. This will mean some occupa- tional deferments will be revoked. Phy- sical standards will be less exacting, and many who have been rejected will be re-examined. California rural communities are watching the draft developments with especial interest. At this time of the year labor needs on the farms and in the transporting of farm .produce are comparatively low. But there is con- cern lest much of the manpower needed during the summer and fall will be drawn into the armed forces during the winter. This would create conditions even more serious than those which have faced farmers and commercial truckers in the past two or three years. With California crops comprising 10 per cent of the nation's food supply, it is ap- parent that sufficient help must be made available to farmers for the har- vesting and to truckers who transport almost the entire farm output to mar- kets and caneries. Undoubtedly these needs will not be ignored by draft boards. ON TO VlCTO4qY NEWS OFTEN DELAYED News concerning men overseas,of vital importance to their families, is often delayed unnecessarily due to failure of dependents to notify the War Department of changes in address, the Ninth Service Command Adjutant General's office, Fort Douglas, Utah, declared today. In one month as ninny as 4,000 tele- grams were returned to Washington, D. C because the addresses could not be found, official reports reveal. Prac- tically every case of non-delivery was due to failure of the addressee to re- port the correct and complete address. In keeping records of America's nfil- li~ns in service, the Adjutant General's office accepts the responsibility of notifying families as soon as possible after a serviceman has become a cas- nalty. Receiving this news late, or from other than official sources, is a great hardship to the soldier's family. Tele- graph offices receiving messages for delivery cooperate fully in attempting to locate addresses and exhaust every possible means prior to returning them Io the War Department. However, it is necessary to return stamped "ADDRESS INCigRRECT." Emergency addressees who ha~e moved after departure of a soldier for overseas dnty, of for other reasons, are urged to inform the Adjutant General- s office, War Department, Vashingt"m 25, D.

LANDMARKS Have any of our readers (lipped into the Book of t'roverbs lately? There is a lot of sound wisdom in it, that wotddn't do any harm for us to know and follow. Here's one: "Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set." What renfinded me of this one was the following which I clipped out of a paper recently. "SCRAP" "Dump the old truths, ,- ~,~--- The broken ethics, The time-worn moralities, Into the official salvage depot. Blood, sweat and tears Will quickly transform them Into a bright new barbarism, A streamlined damnation." Sarcasm--Yes! But why say it? It didn't come out of a clear sky. It wasn't written for its beauty, for pure poetry. There must have been a reason for it. An nrgent reason, a compelling reason. For there are barbs in it that sting, that wound, that hurt. Per- haps I have hit upon one of the rea- sons which prompted the writing. The old landmarks are no longer safe--or are they? Landmarks of Right vs. Wrong: of Truth vs. Falsehood; of Faith vs. Unbelief; of Moral Integrity vs. License, Free Love, Libertinism. These are some of the landmarks up- on which even the Pagan world de- pended for its security, even life it- self. The motto of Alexander the Great is a shining example: "I Steal No Vic- tory." He won them the hard and honest way! Diocletian launched his terrible persecution of the Christians because they refused to sacrifice to the Pagan God Terminus, who presided over all the empire landmarks--stones which had been consecrated to Jupiter. Does that remind yon of anything going on in the world today? A lot has happened in Europe to remind us, aml more and more as the days pass. "Careless seems the Great Avenger, History's pages but record One death grapple in the darkness Twixt old systems and the word." There will be more of this next week I think it is important. C. Telford Erickson. laUy AN EXTRA AOND CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES This declaration of Peter was the Golden Text in the Sunday Lesson- Seamon in all branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston: "The prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." The subject was "Christian .Science." The Lesson-Sermon included this verse from Isaiah: "How beautiful up- ou the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that pub- lisheth peace; that bringeth good tid- ings of good, that publisheth salvation ; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reign- eth !" And from the Psahns : "The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it." In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy wrote: "The impersonation of the spiritual idea had a brief history in the earthly life of our Master; but 'of his kingdom there shall be no end,' for Christ, God's idea, will eventually rule all nations and peoples--impera- tively, absolutely, finally--with divine Science."
