COLUNS WWERLY OPPOSED TO fEAGUE OF NATIONS Take* Occasion To CwmIwim League of Niiiau at Sunday ' Moraine Sarwico AMERICA FOR AMERICA, SAYS MR. COLLINS i ?' Would Lock The Door* Of Ira migration and Throw The Keys Away. ? - ? f jg|S| Rev. Fred T. Collins, the vigorous and able pastor of the Ahoekie Bap tist church, speaking from tin Ahoe lue Baptist church pulpit en last Sunday morning, announced that he was unalterably opposed to aay agree mnt which would draw America closer to the European Nations. The League of Nations, soon to be adop. ted by the Peace Conference at Paris, was condemned by the speaker. Be fore asserting boldly hie opposition to this proposition, h made it clear to his audieace that he felt little in measuring thoughts with the presi dent; but, further stated that the League of Nations, in his opinion, should never be entertained by Am- ; erican statesmen. His proposition, in its premises, held that this country was now fac ing a decision between the principles laid down by George Wsshington and those promulgated by our present Presidsht Wilson. "It is Washington or Wilson," said Mr. Collins. He Was convinced that this country should choose the advice and teachings of the former. He was not too kind to the modern statesman, who he pic. tared as a person "selling out" and subsequently disregarding the will of those who placed him in position to represent them in politics. He de- " cried the way the present day law maker disregarded the express wishes of a free born American citizenship. Politically spealdag. be said, this country was going at a pace now that was either destined to result in slav ery end bondage or it would develop into the sjpread of Bolshevism in the United States.

He said, waa becotning so busdensoms and the country waa being plunged a* headlong into ezcenire debts that ?lavery weald be the final outcome, or, the common people of this coun try would react to that extent that Bolshevism would nign here aa in i Russia today. Although, he said, "I hate the principles of Bolshevist)" yet he stated farther that it waa partly brought about by oppression akin to w)iat this country is destin ed to place upon its people if pre sent tendencies are an index to what the futur* will taring. ? His words indicated his stand for a "ejoeed America." He said "shut the faors of immigration, lock the dooVs, and throw tM? keys away." would have Americi settle her own ' affairs. He would have her keep away from Europe; have nothing to do with European polities.
