THE WAYNES VILLE MOUNTAINEER
What Of The Man In The White House?
Who Bears The Heaviest Strain?
(In The New York Mirror)
No one ever seems to think of the
terrible mental strain under. which
Mr. Roosevelt must be laboring.
No one ever seems to think of the
sleepless nichts and the disturbing
visions tnat must be nis
We read more words of criticism
than of sympathy for him, though
it seems to us that he should have
the deepest sympathy. '
You might judge from some of
the comment that his critics think
he is enjoying himself, when the
trutn 01 tne matter is he is prob-
, able one of the saddest of men.
Mr. Roosevelt is flesh and blood
and heart and soul. He is one of
the real humanitarians of history.
He will be so rated in the years
It is inconceivable that a man of
his mold would not have tremen
dous feeling in this hour, one of
the most critical ever faced by a
chief executive of the United
It is our guess that he prays
nightly that God give him guidance
in the decisions he must make
and which will affect 130,000,000
Mr. Roosevelt is normally a
folksy sort of man, though he was
born to money, to fine living, and
to social position. He is a ' man
who likes to laugh, who enjoys a
good story, who dabbles in stamps
and ship models as hobby, who
finds pleasure in putting on old
Clothes, and Groin? fishinc unit whn
smokes cigarettes by the dozens,
and gives his pals odd nicknames
and who loves to see those around
him happy and contented,
He is still able to turn his famil
iar and warming smile on his peo
ple on occasion, but within him
his heart must be as heavy as
It is not in human nature that
a normal man could contemplate
the dismal nrosnects of t.h Anvu
ahead without foreboding and sor
row, and Mr. Roosevelt is one of
the most complete human docu
ments the world has ever known.
If the fellow in the street feels
depressed, how must Mr. iRtoosevelt
We think it cruel and unjust to
suggest that Mr. Roosevelt wants
to lead his people into war, which
is the constant cry of his critics.
Why would he? He knows the hor
ror of war. He has seen the de
vastated cities and the homeless
women and children and the crip
pled and blind men that result
from war. His own sons would be
in the fiehtinc line with tha anna
of his old neighbors and friends
and the sons of the little people
He has manifested that love time
and again. In return the people
have given him the greatest dis
tinction ever bestowed upon a man
in the history of the Remiblic
What a wicked thino- it ia to &v
that a kindly man like Mr. Roose
velt would want to sacrifice the
lives of these people in war.'
We think that anvone who he.
lieves that Mr, Roosevelt would
wantonly betray the confidence of
the people is a fool, but too manv
forget that this confidence imposes
upon him certain responsibilities,
first and foremost of which is tha
preservance of our free life.
And with this threatened, as it
is, Mr. Roosevelt would be derelict.

of his Maker to defend the consti

He would stand before the bar of
history as an incomnetent and
traitor to the American ideals and

man alive, probably torn by con-
nic.img emotions and his days
darkened by dread. It is strange
that his critics cannot see that this
greatest of human beings must be
sunering in this hour of trial.
Well, we are goine to have a lit
tie bet on Mr. Roosevelt to win
the war for Britain without rat
ting us involved in actual hostili
ties. We admit that this looks
like a hard trick to perform but
we have seen him accomnlish mir
acles before and this may be an
other. In any event, we have al
ways found it a urood idea to string

It is said that from the White
House he can see the majestic pile

man whose life was made sorrow
ful by the burdens Disced UDon him
when he was president, and, pos
sibly, as he views that tribute of
a great people to one of its great
leaders, Mr. Roosevelt finds com
fort and courage in the words of
Abraham Lincoln :
"Let us have faith that rio-ht
makes might; and in that faith let
us to the end dare to do our duty
