Yet more continuing historical headlines the Wall Street Journal:
December 8, 1941
"WE HAVE A DUTY"
"The business and financial discussion which customarily appears on this page in Monday morning's issue of the Wall Street Journal was written Saturday evening and given to the compositors yesterday. As the galley proof reached the editorial room, press association wires carried the flash that the Japanese had attacked Hawaii."
. . . .
"Every citizen has and knows his duty. It will be heavy for all. The sacrifice will be particularly heavy for the business and financial community of America."
"We say that the sacrifices will be made. The duty will be performed."
AND IT WAS! ARSENAL OF DEMOCRACY!
