its minority housing problem as
its local program was mapped out.

passage of the Austin-Mahoney

World wide leaders told us t’:at world war No. two,

^ as for world wide democracy; To free all men from
slavery; and from strife and tyranny—
And if they were victorious,—
A bright happy road was before us.
And India too, was promised her freedom by Britain
after the war was won.
And yet nothing has been done.
The same untruthful promises as ever before,
And a darker future lies in store.
For as long as men are held in slavery, lasting —acc
shall never be;
For freedom is every man's birthright—be he h!a?k or
Aet leaders keep groups and nations in slavery still,
Knowing it is against God’s Holy will.
The peace of the world—and the world itself is at stake!
Because leaders won't give all men and nations an equal
They would rather be blown to kingdom come_
Than grant equal rights to everyone!
It is sad to think we stand on the brink of world war
number three,
Just because a few men fail to see—
or will not face the fact—
That a L united States and British military pact,
^ ill not only turn the world against us.
But will prove disasterous!
(And how about the Anglo-American pact?)
(How will the darker races like that?)
e can't pat Russia on the back;
and then give her a back hand slan!
For Russia might not take that stuff.
And might call our bluff,
And when the Russian bear begins to growl—
It might be our time to howl !
For we are sowing the seeds of suspicion ami mtsirust;
And shall someday reap the bitter harvest.
^ e shouldn't forget wre owe Russia a debt—
which we can never repay; for it was her gallant
fighting which held Germany in check;
and paved the way for complete victory!
Today Russia is busy building and working to make her
future secure.
^ hile Americans are idle and shirking, with strikes and
i unrest everywhere.
And once again peace is far-far away, and once again
Americans are called to pray—
But they can pray every hour of the day,
And all through the week
And if they fail to keep
God's holy word, their prayers are unanswered,
If the world is to escape total disaster;
It must turn to the blessed Master!
Accept His teachings and obey His word,
Before prayers for peace are heard!
For thus spoke the Saviour of men,.
