WHEN HITLER WINS, WILL HELL BREAK
LOOSE IN AMERICA ?
The Macedonian cry comes across the waters i
from the dying empires of freedom and democ- J
As Liberty in Furopp makes its last stand be
fore the onrushinsr Hun hordes, whence shall
come its help?
Will the people of this greatest democracy in
the world look in at the death and sustain the
shock, or will HELL BREAK LOOSE IN AMER
Will the people of the United States retain
their poise, equilibrium, sense, while the shrieks
of countless thousands of suffering and dying
innocent men, women and children ring in their
ears while they wake and while they sleep?
Can we preserve our calm indifference when
civilization beckons us with tears and prayers to
come over and help?
The answer is, I will not give my boys to die
on a foreign strand for alien interests—nor will
you. 1 will give my boys and myself in DE
FENSE OF AMERICA—and so will you.
I America can do nothing about it NOW. We
may sympathize and send money and material, 1
but that is as far as our help may extend in the
path ot the cyclone that sweeps on resistlessly. i
| America may be compared to Sampson with
out his locks, or a Numidian lion minus his claws'
The lesson for us is to PREPARE—PREP ARE j
—PREPARE. Our cue is to be not caught nan
ping $s was France England.
The unleashed powers of money, material and
men that may be commanded by this continent
will be irrestistible to all the nations of the
world if marshalled and deveJoped.
Those who counsel to refrain from the cost are
enemies to the freedom of this republic. A Ger
man victory means cost plus—it means CON
FISCATION OF THE RESOURCES OF THE
Let America BEWARE AND PREPARE.
