Fore ‘n’ Aft, May 12, 1944:

Sunday is Mother’s Day.

Never before has this fitting day of tribute to America’s mothers held the meaning it does in this year of world conflict. Mothers, in addition to their full-time job of loving, are doing the suffering for the boys who do the fighting. Mothers have joined the industrial army to make ships, planes, guns that will give their sons protection and strength.

All blessings to our Mothers.
