If a flicker of amusement arises
out of the announcement that the
Onondaga tribe of Indians, in New
York state, hay declared war against
Germany, it can arise only out of
the peculiar circumstances of the

were good enough warriors to move
as great a soldier as George Wash

as a separate nation, as a means of
maintaining peace. The terms of

have been termed "a mere scrap of

as a separate nation the Osiondagas

the United States and its allies fail in this war
there will not remain on earth, a people absolutely ino!epen
dent.of trie dictation of the Teutonic empires, organized for
military efficiency and bent on using that efficiency for the
purpose of forcing their will upon the world. Let the Teu
tons triumph and the world will not bo a safe place for
democracy, and to maKe it such a safe place, is not enly
the expressed purpose of the United States in taKing up
the challenge of the Huns, but also the purpose of the other
powers who tcoK up the challenge when Germany sent it
forth three years and a half ago, and who for three years
and a half have borne the burden of the conflict
For this reason the PRESENT BUSINESS OF THE
UNITED STATES IS WAR war to exterminate or
ganized unrighteousness and to . establish peace
among the nations of the world.
The Government has perfected a plan which
will enable all of our people without exception, to
laKe a definite part in winning the war.

One of the first great steps called for by the Govern
ment is SAVING. The American people must cease to
require all of the pleasant and comfortable luxuries which
they consumed before tha war, the production of which
calls for the energy cf millions cf men and women. These
men and women must dsvote themselves to the production
of the things which are needed to win the war. This is the
Key to the present situation; it rests in the hands of the
average man, woman and child in every state in the Union,
by refraining from everything not absolutely necessary to
health, and efficiency, to release strong arms for the pro
duction of materials of war to support our army and navy.
Idle dollars ere SLACilER dollars, but dollars spent for
unnecessary articles, the production of which require labor
and materials which the government needs to save the lives
of our fighting men, are TRAITOR dollars.
