Victory in Europe Complete;
 Allies Now Turn Efforts Toward Smashing Jap War Machine

A peace that passeth all understanding came to the world this week.  It was anticlimactic, it was premature, it was confusing, it was the greatest snafu of all time-but it was wonderful.  On the 2,075th day of the biggest, costliest war in history, some 25,000,000 ceased fighting.  Ahead lay the difficult problems of the peace and the hard struggle to bring to an end the other half of the global war, the war against Japan.  But for a few days at least a great burden was lifted for muvh of mankind.
