When we think of the wave of
suffering that has come on the
countless people all over Europe,
Asia, Africa and we too, who but;
yesterday enjoyed the environ-!
ment of our homes, look ahead to
all that will yet come forth from
the baneful seed of violence. We
who stay at home, know those
young men are going to fight our
battle and it is our duty, and
puiviledge, to do all we possibly
can to comfort and console the
brave boys who are shouldering j
this burden. Let us learn lessons.
Never, believe any war will be
smooth and easy or that any who
embarks on this strange voyage
can measure the tides and hurri
canes he will encounter. The
statesmen, who yield to war fever,
must realize that once the signal is
given he is no longer the master
of policy, but a slave of unforsee
able and uncontrollable events.
Incompetent commanders, un
trustworthy allies, ugly suprises,
awful miscalculations, all take
their seat at the council board on
the declaration of war. Always
remember that we can win. That
would not be the way if the other
didn’t think the same. Though
wdth the united efforts of 26 seper
ate enlightened nations we trust
our soldier boys we’ll soon be
permitted to return to their homes
and families, conscious of having
