tbd the Black Hills of Wyomlns The 8undsnee Times, 8undanee, Wyoming CC ESI DECEMBER 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor lay serene and still in the lazy atmosphere of a pleasant Sunday morning. The big battlewagons, like sleeping ~dants, rode quietly at anchor. If there was any uneasiness about the growing tension between Jap- an and the United States it was not outwardly evident. On the far horizon a plane ap- peared. Then more planes. They maust be ours, of course. But thir- ty minutes later our great fleet lay desperately wounded; Pearl Harbor was a sltambles. The events of that fateful morn- lag--the shock, the slaughter, the heroic but hopeless defense of our great naval base have all been told and retold countless times Volumes have ,been written about it. But the whole story~ the story back of the attack, how it was ever allowed to happen, who waB really to blame---these facts are yet to be" clearly estab- lished. Whether or not the present eon~reuional investigation will get to the bottom of the tragic fiasco remains to be seen. But one thing is clear:" the hell which fell !from the heavens on that 'December morning four years a- were threatened with annihila- tion. That we survived at all was due not only to our ability to re- cover quickly but the failure of the enemy to follow up his ad- vantage. It is not so important that we remember Pearl Harbor as a mil- itary battle ~or should we remem- ber it merely to nurse hatred toward the Japs, but we must never forget the lesson it taught us. Never again nlust we be un- prepared, off our guard or indif- ferent to world tensions. There must never be another Pearl Harbor. VOICE OF THE PEOPLE The American people are slow- ly coming to the realization that ,the opportunity for an era of great prosperity may be slipping from their grasp. V-E Day occur- red nearly seven monhts ago; V- J Day is almost four months past. !Yet America is not achetving a a~mooth economic reconversion. ~vtaay of her efforts have been, in fact, at cross-purposes, This is reflected in both gov- ernment and industry. On Oapi- tal Hill members of both parties play politics while the Nation a- waits needed legislation. Labor and Management debate and de- lay while the wheels of produc- tion move at half speed. ~o ~blasted into oblivion our "old ~ Deadlocks and delays can be world"--:-that isolated, indifferent eliminated only by a determined world lsl which we t.hought we demand for action by the people lived on .a continent ,instead of a themselves. We can be guided and globe. We saw in a flash that m, rl represented by those Who hold ~-- I offical positions, but the real smug security was a myth, that~power for action is i~ the voice we were wide open to attack and[of the people.

Today we must more soberly realize this responsibility. The majority must be as zealous as the most powerful minority. They must strengthen the hands of those in Washington who are ad- vocating their views; they must resist the efforts of high pressure minority groups. Public opinion has always been the most potent force in America. Vigorously expressed it could bring the White House and Con- gress into closer cooperation; it could reduce political maneuver- lng in Congress to a minimum; it could compel a settlement of the l~bor-management stalemate. Remember, a postcard to your congressman costs only a penny.
