Still Pleasure Mad
What we do today will, in a great measure,
determine what we will be able to do tomor
row. To ignore our tasks today may mean that
tasks will be assigned tomorrow with a slave
whip raised to guarantee their fulfillment.
It is sad to relate, but we are still pleasure
mad. We are not doing today what will guar
antee to us the four freedoms tomorrow.
Some patriotic business men who have been
favored with war contracts are not satisfied
with their profits alone. Their importance to
the war effort prompts them to claim special
privileges. They demand and get tires, sup
plementary gasoline cards, priorities and pos
sibly other considerations. They are entitled to
them under the rules and regulations. But that
is not all. Their business is booming and they
apparently must mix pleasure with their work.
Long trips are scheduled on Sunday. The leis
urely errand calls for the car or truck. Censure
them for apparent irregularities and they puff
up and say they are doing no more than others
are doing, and even threaten to suspend oper
ations if they are not humored and petted.
Our pleasure riding today may mean that
we will be walking tomorrow when speed is
vitally important Our free spending for pleas
ure today may mean that buying power will
be short in times of stress and actual want to
Outline* Plant On The Home
Front For Winning War
A concerted drive is now underway through
out the nation under the direction of the ex
tension services to enroll everyone in support
of the war effort. The plan outlined calls for
marked changes in our ways of living. Though
those changes may be hard to accept and will
upset our economy, it would seem wise to ad
just ourselves to them rather than have them
thrust upon us by dictators
The following is a guide for family use only
to help organize your war effort. Each family
should council together on this plan to decide
what each member will do.
1. Cooperate with the national price control
2. Raise more of our own food and feed and
3. Plan to buy less for our own use and take
care of what we have.
4. Strive to maintain and improve our soil
5. Pay cash as far as possible instead of using
the installment plan.
6. Buy less of those things which art*not im
portant to maintaining our health, such as soft
drinks, candies, etc.
7. Repair farm and home equipment; remod
el clothing; and buy fewer things that are not
8. Drive our car only when absolutely neces
sary. This will save gas, rubber, and other ex
9. Save for the Government, scrap metals,
rubber, and other scarce and essential mater
10. Encourage neighborhood recreation such
as baseball, plays, etc., as well as increased
church, school, and other neighborhood activi
ties to help maintain morale.
Plan to help pay for the war:
11. Invest in war bonds and stamps.
12. Pay our income and property taxes
13. Reduce debts as much as possible.
We must produce more of our family food
requirements because we realize that Approx
imately one-half of certain food commodities
such as meat and lard from commercial pack
ers as well as canned goods are required now
by the armed forces. These requirements will
increase as the war progresses.
The labor shortage, traceable to the transfer
of large numbers to the industrial areas, to the
draft and to Hitler and Company, is being ag
gravated right here at home.

plant more peanuts for the war effort, most of
the growers excused themselves by pointing
to the labor shortage.
Many farmers are facing a labor shortage
in this county, but it would appear that some
of them are aggravating that shortage by their
own acts. There are those who are trying to do
all in their power to aid the war effort, and
have doubled their peanut plantings and cur
tailed their tobacco acreages. The disappoint
ing-part-about it all is- that the farmer who
tries to help his countrty is called the sucker
by the otheragu_v who through selfishness takes
advantage of any situation.
After all it will look better for peanuts plant
ed for the war effort to rot in the field than it
will be for excess tobacco to go to ruin on the

Ralph Ingarsoll in the Newspaper "PM".
Great Britain has signed a 20-year alliance
jvith the Soviet Union.
The U. S. A. has reached a "full understand
ing" and signed a "master Lend-Lease" agree
Now why does Britain sign a 20-year alliance
while we remain on a Lend-Lease basis?
Most observers seem to think that President
Roosevelt does not feel American public opin
ion is ready for a full alliance with Russia ?
that he feels the fight for Senate ratification
might be lung and possibly harmful. If so, I
would take issue with the President, for I see
such a conclusion as founded on an illusion
created by a hostile press. There is strong con
trary evidence that most Americans already
greatly admire the Russians' conduct in this
war, and are catching on to the fact that men
villi ulterior motives have for years lied about
the land of the Bolshevists.
Maybe Russian misgivings about America
cad some bearing on the situation.
Consider the atmosphere as Molotov and
Roosevelt met. Over a million Russians lie
lead on the field of battle, killed fighting Fas
lsm. From the Arctic to the southern Steppes,
or 12 months, the war has been fought in grim
md deadly earnest. No quarter is asked, no
juarter is given, on either side. The Russians
lave laid thousands of square miles of their
rwn land bare,to cheat the enemy of any berie
it from his surprise attack. No machine in Rus
;ia turns but to prosecute the war. No man, wo

When I was in Moscow, Soviet officials com
iletely convinced me of their disinterest in

American politics is one thing and positive evi
lence of American suspicion of everything So
?iet is another.
i ne nussians must know that our Admin
istration docs not represent nor speak for many
powerful interests in this country. The indus
trialists who fought the New Deal so many
years are fighting it still. It is no secret that
the majority of Congressmen do not really see
eye to eye with the President on the Four Free
doms, either abroad or at home. The Russians
are very realistic people. They might grant
Roosevelt and his Administration all the good
intentions in the world, and still not put their
faith in a man who could be repudiated as
Woodrow Wilson was repudiated at the end
of the first World War against Fascism. All of
this may have had some bearing on the fact
that England made a full military alliance with
the Russians and?however strong our "under
standing"?we did not.
If so, it is a great pity, for the American and
the Russian people will need each other after
the war almost as much as they need each oth
er now. And while I do not blame the Rus
sians for feeling the way they do, I don't agree
The America of 1942 is not the America of
1918. There are the same enemies of the people
in our midst?and they talk and act the same
way. But they have not the power they had
then. We have been through too much since
their tory world collapsed in 1929.
If Roosevelt had misgivings about where the
people would stand on a Senate fight over a
Russian alliance or if Molotov had misgivings
about the sincerity of American friendship, I
believe the misgivings represent a wrong ap
praisal of the understanding and the tough
ness of an enormous majority of Americans.
But I grant that it is up to us to give the proof
of this statement?by demonstrating our loyal
ty to the President and his policies?and our
friendly sympathy for the great ally who is
fighting so valiantly on our aids from Mur
mansk to Rostov.
Religion . .
By BERNARD T. HURLEY
Pastor, Methodist Chnreh
A more pathetic picture cannot be
found in all the annals of history
than the one found in the Bible, 2
Kings, 17th chapter, describing the
moral and religious condition of the
people living in the northern and
central parts of Palestine after the
deportation of the ten tribes of Israel
into the land of Assyria.
The armies of Assyria had laid
waste the land by fire and sword,
and had taken the choicest of the
people into captivity, leaving only
the poorest and the weakest behind
to serve as vassals of the king. To
strengthen his hold upon the newly
conquered lands of Israel, the Assyr
ian king sent a number of people
from different parts of his empire to
live among this remnant left in the
land. They married and intermar
ried until finally resulting in a
mongrel race, known later as the Sa
maritans of Jesus' day.
As to the Israelites taken into cap
tivity, scattered throughout the vast
stretches of the then mighty Assyr
ian empire, nothing is known.
"Like the dew on the mountain,
Like the foam on\the river,
Like the bubble on the fountain,
They are gone, and forever."
Like the jungles of India that soon
swallow up deserted villages, so did
the prowling wild beat claim as their
territory the deserted land of Israel,
killing the scattered inhabitants of
this God forsaken land.
Attributing their misfortune to
their lack of knowledge "the god of
the land." they appealed to the king
of Assyria to send them a priest
from among the captive Israelites
who could teach them "the manner
of the god of the land.' In answer to
their request a priest was sent to
them. He was an idolatrous priest
<^,.1..... U,. JiJ

'know enough of the true religion
of Jehovah to instruct them. What
they needed was not a priest of a
corrupt religion, but a prophet of
God False teachings about a true
religion is far worse than the true
teachings of a false religion. It is
fearful to contemplate the effects
of the mongrel type of religion that
is now being taught m Germany and
the Nazi-dominated countries of
Europe, and the world, should Ger
many win this war. Imagine, if you
can, the little children of a once
Christian country offering this kind
of grace at the table: "We thank thee
Oh Fuehrer, that thou has been sent
of God to grant us and our nation
our daily bread this day." And this
is just what is happening in Ger
many today, according to reliable
reports. They, like that mongrel race I
of old, have forgotten that old com
mandment, "Thou shall have no oth- !
er gods before me."
The result of those miserable peo
ple who had forsaken the true God
of Israel and of the entire world is
stated in 2 Kings, 17:33. 'They fear- j
ed the Lord, and served their own
gods." This kind of a religion re
minds us of the old story of one of
these fellows who had no real con
viction about religion. A fence
straddler. lie was overheard pray
ing this sort of a prayer: "Good
Lord, good devil, help me." When
he was asked why he called 011 both
he replied, "Because I don't know
into whose hands I'll fall, and I want
to be on the safe side." There is just
too much of this mongrel kind of re
ligion today for this old story to be
funny. It is simply and tragically
pathetic, to say the least.
They feared the Lord when they
were in trouble, but in their con
duct and manner of living they serv
ed the gods of selfishness, green and
sensuality. They wanted "the God
of the land" to protect them and
their children from the prowling
wild beast, but kept 011 living in their
sins. Thus did the mixed race in
northern Palestine 25 centuries ago.
