There is one front and one battle where everyone in the United States—every man, woman, and child—is in action and will be privileged to remain in action throughout this war. That front is right here at home, in our daily lives and in our daily tasks. Here at home everyone will have the privilege of making whatever self-denial is necessary, not only to supply our fighting men, but to keep the economic structure of our country fortified and secure during the war and after the war.

Animal Husbandry



First wolves, now cows.
Who comes up with these
names? I've been reading
of the Milchkühe--milk cows!

Another name for damn u-boats.
Milk cows offer the "wolves"
sustenance. Supplies at sea.
Without returning home to port.

Stop, no more! Let's speak
plainly!--Nazi pig bastards
are what they are, and we're
gonna roast them all.
