The Year Ahead
A SOBER-MINDED people are greeting this
New Year, The president of the United States,
has called on the nation to make January first,
1942, a day of prayer. Already there are homes
stricken by war, there are those who have died and
are dying, and there are the many more that will
fall before another year dawns.
Last year ' in his " "fireside talk" to the nation,
President Roosevelt said : "Let us no longer blind
ourselves to the undeniable facts that the evil
forces which have crushed and undermined and Cor
rupted so many others are already within our.
gates." It has required a Pearl Harbor to awaken
us, arid our astonished eyes may yet witness the
ilippines in Axis hands
of this war which is about to engulf us.
warnings have been

The words that we
md our friends this
Jnited Effort" to meet and conquer the evil
forces that are spreading agony and death over the
fair lands of God's world. " -7
"We Now Know"
THIS nation of ours has had a shock, but it is
wiser and stronger for having had it. Every
one of us must be conscious today of a clearer vis
ion and a deeper understanding than Ave had two
weeks ago. The bombs on Pearl Harbor have de
stroyed much more than what the censors would
call "military objectives". They have ripped our
'complacency to' shreds. They have blasted the old
comfortable belief that the wide . oceans could save
us from harm. They have blown away the notion
that brutality and deceit and murder in another
part of the world could never touch us . in ours.
We now know, or ought to know, that this whole
world struggle is our war, just as much as it was
to the people of Chungking or Warsaw in 1939, or
"to the people of Rotterdam or London in 1940, or
to the. people of Athens and Moscow in 1941. We
now know, or ought to know, that there can be no
half way method of fighting an attempt to domi
nate the entire earth. We now know, or ought to
knowthat this total war will require total effort
on our part, with everything we have and every
thing we are, with all our resources pledged to
final and decisive victory.. . . .
It is by far the greatest test and the grandest
opportunity that has ever come to our country. We
must prove ourselves worthy, of that challenge.
The words that Winston Churchill addressed to
his own people a year ago can now be applied to
ours: let us so bear ourselves that if these United
States should last for a thousand years, men will
still say, "This was their finest hour."
