Hail to 1942! Old Father Time, 1941 edition, having deposited a war on America’s doorstep during the very last month of his reign, prepares to beat a hasty retreat in favor of a grim, serious and youthful success, 1942.

Maybe he knows it the tough, tireless, defiant, rule, morose and unconquerable beast! The horse is a softy and sentimentalist; so is the dog. They have their places in war, too; but they fight as gentlemen. When war waxes blistering arid bloody and brutal for Uncle Sam, he reviews the past and calls all mules!
