The United States is launching one of the greatest defense programs m its history, creat ing a series of new problems that may bend the economic system and weaken the social structure. It is generally agreed that defense appropria tions should be increased, tliat the proposed ap propriations should be doubled or increased sev eral told However, in advancing such a pro gram the leaders of this nation should step in and elit linaU1 the excessive profit The leaders -wtll-tio-welt- l eiiieinbet tie- role pliiyed by agriculture 1:1 helping to feed the teeming mil lions thrimch-depression II industry shares the losses in' its field 111 proportion to the losses shared by agriculture m' feeding the millions, then we ran < xpeet an extensive armament ? - ; Vi 01.'" i no 1 ? * re 1. I.u! tu bi expected to .0111 the nation at a loss. Anu tie,thei is agriculture expected by any reasonable man to feed and continue to feed the nation at a loss. Hut that.is what it has done Ibis past dccade.-There"hre those who call farm parity payim nts the . farm grab,, charging that , farmers an being sub luted bv the nation. Ac cording to reliable information every pinch of bread plan <1 the n.i.iiili, ,?< t.iiv p?npl? n"v produced by a farmer who lost money on it. Since 11)110. American farmers have failed by twenty billion dollars to obtain parity for their products Each year for the past decade, the far- j mcrs of this nation have subsidized the consum- i crs by a cool two billion dollars. As Senator Lee of Oklahoma points out, tin- $2111.000,000 extend- t cd this year in the farm of parity payments is [ na iely a put payment on the farmers' com pulsory contribution to the consumers of this nation. It would s<-em-thnt th" great dirtnhnting agencies with their outlets dotting the earth from coast to coast have played a part in rob bing the producer to extend a "saving" to the consumer. ? " ?? ~ . Is there going to be an agency to figure 111 the armament program'.' Will America get a dollar's worth of protection for a dollar? Or is she going to pa> tribute to the manipulators? It will do well to remember that agriculture has playeti its pari 111 li ednm the hunerv and tb.it indusliy has ho right to excessive profits in pro tecting the people. But even the farmer who has subsidized the consumer does not expect industry to bear the burden he has, bu.t he does expect a lot of defense for his dollar. Cumcientiou* Objector*? A In 1914, Germany had its sympathizers in this country 111 large numbers. Today the num ber of sympathizers is unusually small The present-day objectors refer to the faults of the Allies,-and upon those faults they base their objections. Their objections have a standing only in a democratic country like ours, and must be tolerated just as long as we practice democracy, we must remember. But, in sympathizing with. Germany, the self-expressed sympathizes ?mh cause apparently overlook the faults of Hit ler and the savage role he and his hordes are playing against humanity. Whatever cause he may have to attack England or France, Hitler has no right to attack and overrun the peace ful countries that have been victimized by cruel warfare, shorn of all mercy and advanced in utter disregard for international law and de cency. Hitler's methods of applying the supreme push in disregard of human life and property are suf ficient to turn the minds, souls and stomachs of civilized people against him And if we have any sympathy for suffering humanity and care an\ thing about Christian principles and liber -tyrwe, as a nation, will not stand idly by while the mad man and his hordes slay millions and lay waste property that generations cannot re build. Reports from over the nation show a greater contempt for Hitler and his German hordes than has been expressed in all history And in due tune, while possibly a bit late, that contempt will be expressed in deed. The conscientious object or will aid democracy and save himself by with drawing to his individual shell during the criti cal crisis now threatening the world and all that is decent in it. Harked ffv Their i hnence Religious leaders, pointing out that the youth of the land is not found in the church these days ask where they are. As the course of the youth turns from the church it is steering tow ard the courts and disgrace. The modern youth has reached the point where he cares little about his appearance in court. Only once in a while he will express regret because of the feelings for an up-right, law-abiding and God-fearing mother or father. Too often, he merely casts a contemptible smile from the corner of his mouth and tells the world how smart he is in flouting the law and helping, to drag down so ciety. The church may be a bit old-fashioned in its practices and beliefs, but the institution offered peace and happiness and held intact the founda tion upon which succeeding generations wery to build an heritage. But youth is marked by its absence upon the religious service. It is run ning wild, flouting the laws of the land, lower "g. the t.nul.p lis uf dm'lll't, and Kbeftlhg coin- " pany with the seasoned criminal at the bar of justice One Hitler tinned his back on religion, and the world is measuring that error with the blood of millions of men. women and children today. What will Be the price now that youth is turn ing its back on the humble teachings of the Jow ly Nazarene? I iirninfi To Tin? H ord The American Bible Society is holding its 1124th annual meeting today in New York City. From a study of its annually increasing circu lation of the Scriptures one would deduce that people are more and more turning to.the Bible, this book which speaks in so many languages and penetrates the farthercst corners of the i artlv. Many a man who never read the Book be fore is beginning to hear in its unchanging ac u iil.s what at last he finds to be the positive an swer to his own and the world's despair. The American Bible Society has faced this man before from the start it has faced him. The man without the Book has symbolized the appaling need that brought the Society into be ing one hundred and twenty-four years ago. His plight it was that established the Society's first Foreign Agency in 1936 and the work for the blind a year earlier. It is his wondering, half dii.tiu.itful look tliut keeps tiaiislulurs' and ro visers' lamps burning far into the night, and the feet of the messengers of peace trudging over the highways and byways of forty countries to bring the glad tidings of One who saves un to the uttermost. The man without the Book?there are hun dreds of millions who have never even heard of the Book. But where the man without the Book has heard of it, his one-time scorn is not so evi dent today;, his indifference is giving way to the spirit of inquiry and his troubled soul is a bit more disposed to wonder if here, after all, in this book he may have spurned before, is not the answer to the deepest questions he has ever asked himself.?Selected. 1 have a boy, and 1 want him to know We reap in life just about as we sow. And we get what we earn, 1>0 it little or great, Regardless of luck and regardless of Fate.?Ex CONTEST WINNER MrWilber Woolard || Mr. WIl.Bt'R WOOI.ARD, local representative of the Life and Casualty Insurance Company of Tennessee, was notified by his company that liis record for the past year made him a winner in the company's contest and as a reward he will attend, at his company's expense, a three-day convention which the life and Casualty Insurance Company will hold in Havana.
