"Not by machines alone will we win this war," the President's let- ter said. "Unitedly, unstintingly and with- out interruption or delay, we have solemnly promised to give our men a mounting tide of guns, tanks, ships and planes. "We shall keep that promise and one promise more--that we shall preserve for them, wherever they may be, and without regard to race, creed or color, the moral and spiritual values of the democratic ideals and freedoms for which they are now fighting. "Because the USO is unitedly dedicated to that high purpose, and because that high purpose is a vital part of the job of winning this war, the use should be sup- ported by everybody--cheerfully, generously and now." The funds raised in the campaign will be used to carry on the exten- sive program of the United Ser- vice Organizations, of which the National Catholic Community Ser- vice is a member agency, for the men in the armed forces. Recrea- tional and entertainment facilities are provided men in uniform in nearly 1,000 units and club throughout the nation and its ter- ritorial possessions.
