BIBLE THOUGHT
. The Battle t the Gate
In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and
for a diadem of 'beauty, unto the residue of his: people, and for a
spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength
to them that turn back the battle at the gate. Isaiah 28: 56.
''.
"Life today is a battle at the gate.
"Our problem tpday is not how to achieve universal ideals, but
how to face- realities; not how to make a warles world, but how
to keep war from destroying the world; not how to build perfect
social order, but how to escape .economic chaos; not what the ideal
Church would do, but how shall we escape religious breakdown.'
WAITING FOR THE GREEN pGHT
"The Urgency Is Now"
THOSE who listened to President Roosevelt's
history-making speech last Saturday night
could not help being conscious of the unseen audi
ence of every nation and every race who listened
with the privileged citizens of this democracy. '
In his momentous words, not once did the speak
er forget that he was speaking for the liberation
of all those enslaved by dictatorship and crushed
in' spirit and body by the torments of war and
' conquest!;.! ; .. ;' '
The President's speech, counted by many as his
greatest certainly a message that carried the
most far-reaching portent expressed the will of
an overwhelming majority of the people of the
United States; "total effort for total victory."
For in whatever other direction "wishful think
ing" may have carried any group, the inevitability
of the present course and purpose of this nation
has united many opposing factions of Americans.
In 14 languages this purpose was broadcast
through the President's words, that carried one
clear note of urgency. Some of these are quoted
below
"The decisions of our democracy may be slowly
arrived at. But when that decision is made, it is
proclaimed not with the voice of any one man but
with the voice of one hundred and thirty millions.
It is binding on all of us. And the world is no
longer left in doubt.
"This decision is the end of any attempts at
appeasement in our land; the end of urging us to
get along with the dictators; the end of com
promise with tyranny and the forces of oppression. .
"The urgency is now.
"The great task of this day, the deep duty
which rests upon us is to move products from the
assembly lines of our factories to the battle lines
of democracy now ! 1
"We shall have1 to make sacrifices every one
of us. The final extent of those sacrifices will de
pend upon the speed with which we act now!
"The !light'vof democracy must be kept burning.
To the .perpetuation of this light, each rfiusl do
,his owif shafe. The single effort of one individual
may. s'eefm very small. But diere -are: 130-miIlion
individuals. ,Over here. There "are many more, mil
lions in- Britain and elsewhere bravely shielding
the great flame of democracy from theblackout
of barbarism. It is not enough for us tnerely to
trim th wick, or polish the glass. The time has
come when-we must provide the fuel in ever
increasing amounts to keep the flame alight.
"This will of the American people will not be
frustrated, either by threats .&orri powerful ene
mies abroad or by small, s&fishroups or indi
viduals at home., ' '
"Our country is going to be what our people
have proclaimed it must be the arsenal of de
mocracy. .
"Our country is going to play its full part.
"We believe that the rallying cry of the dic
tators, their boasting about a master-race, will
prove to be pure stuff and nonsense. There never
has been, there isn't now, and there never will 'be
any race of people fit to serve as masters over
their fellow men. . . . We believe that any na
tioralality, no matter how smallhas the inherent
right to its own nationhood.
"Never, in all our history, have Americans faced
a job so well worthwhile. May it be said of us in
the days to come that our children and our chil
dren's chldren rise up and call us blessed."

ISOLATIONISTS' NEW WORK
Now that the British Lend-Lease
bill has passed, despite all the ef
forts of the isolationists in Con
gress, those isolationists are now
turning their attentions to block
ing the effectiveness of. the bill.
They are now rallying their forces
to fight against the $7,000,000,000
appropriation needed if the bill does
any real good, to Britain.
Although the isolationists call the
appropriation indorsed by the cab
inet a "blank check", the figure
was arrived at after a careful
study of the. cost of effective aid
for Britain and our own personal
defense program. There has; been
no guess wor-k in figuring the cost,
the figure was arrived at after a
deliberate examination .by the army
and Slavy departments.
The isolationists will probably
get no, ; further irr blocking ' the
appropriation; thai! hpsdid . in
killing: the aid bill, ; JSeqause' -.i$q
great-tfjiajority of cong;reaie'
fully bejimd effeictivcyaid
land, and without money tfte,"LerKl-
Lease bill would be (of absolutely
no effectiveness. .
Of cour.se' the Amiricany people
realize that such a hug appropria
tion will increase the tax-burden
greatly, but the sound-thinking
Americans have arrived at the con
clusion that it would be better to
pay high taxes for a short while
than live forever under the heel
of a totalitarian government.

Library Aid
THE good news that the General Assembly passed,

the state.
vc can uniie wun ine rurtsi uiv v.uunei mi iuc
following:
"We congratulate the Library Commission and
all those who have worked toward this forward
step. . . . We do not know the details of the dis-
II lUUllUII Ui IMC ClUL1 JIJI lailUll, LUl V it U31 UiOl
some of it finds its way to our local library.
Even the worst war cannot go j
on forever. Even the "best" war
ends in a crop of hatreds which
hitherto have been the seeds of
future conflict. Hence. ... we
should be giving immediate atten
tion to the; peace which rs to fol
low the present war. Millions I've
buried in Europe with their hope
that such a war should not .be
again. . We who lived to see Ver
sailles should consecrate ourselves
with the vow that such a peace
shall not be again.
Now is the tune to start on the
problems of reconstruction and
organization for peace. And tbe
local church is the place to begin.
The local parish is to the peace
program what the . training camp
is to military movements. It is in
the local church that we learn the
squad movements which fit us for
the front line peace action. Inter
national justice is but a projection
of those principles which prove
workable in community contacts.

(Business Week)
Congress willing, the Tennessee
Valley Authority may take over
the job of building the $37,000,000
Fonbaria power plant on the Little
Tennessee as' a result of a stale
mate between Aluminum Company
of America and the Federal I'ower
Commission.
New Dealers charge that the
company's refusal to build the big
dam subject to a federal license
flouts the urgent needs of national
defense. The company counters
that the project is not properly
subject to license, that it can't ex
pose stockholders' money ""to the
vagaries of federal regulation, but
that it is willing to cooperate witli
any government agency.
The Power Commission admits
that the company can't be forced
to build the dam but is making a
record supporting the license re
quirement to haunt the company
if it tries again.
