tjSDAY, OCTOBER f 29, 1942 (One Day Nearer Victory) THE WAYNES VILLE MOUNTAINEER Page 3 'he Kind Of 6 v it e m e ia it Amerio i lm Tke Fitar Is Wow Ai Up to THiexAmeiricsii Voter President Roosevelt Said: In bis speech to the International Student Assembly in Washington, September 8, 1942 "The better world for which yon fight and for which some of you pve your lives will not come merely because we shall have won the m. It will not come merely because we wish very hard that it will tome. It will be made possible only by bold vision, intelligent planning md hard work ... In the concept of the Four Freedoms, in the basic principles of the Atlantic Charter, we have set for ourselves high goals, unlimited objectives. These concepts and. these principles are designed to form a world in which men, women and children can live in freedom and in equity, and, above all, without fear of the horrors of war. For no soldiers or sailors, in any of our forces today, would so willingly endure the rigors of battle if they thought that In another twenty years their own sons would be lighting still another war on distant deserts or seas or In faraway jungles or skies. We have profited by our past mistakes. This time we shall know how to make full use of victory" It is important at this time that the President and Congress have the continued support of the State, Coun ty and local Democratic Administrations. .We should not be lulled to sleep by the Republican friends saying that what we do locally will not make any difference. North Carolina and Haywood County make up a unit of the government that shapes the policies of the United States and directs the destiny of this country. Some of the men and women electedto Congress this fall may still be in oflke when the war is over and the time comes to write the peace and make full use of the victory we have won. It is extremely Important that they be wise leaders that they be Intelligent and open-minded states men with a world viewpoint, who will be smypathetic with and work for (he great goals which have been set Under present conditions, we must face facts. One of these facts, disagreeable as It may be to our Republican friends, to that whenever the House of Representative or the Senate has been of a different political faith from that of the Chief Executive, there is nothing bat chaos and confusion in the machinery of government. The suc cessful prosecution of the war demands that nothing like this should result from this November election. Most of the Republican leaders have for many year advocated a foreign policy completely out of line wit the best Interests of the country. This began during the first World War when the foreign policy of the Republican leaders consisted chiefly in opposing anything advocated by Woodrow Wilson, regardless of its merits. They rejected every form of international co-operation, they defeated the League of Nations and adopted a strictly Isolationist policy. When the Harding administration came into power, it called a naval disarmament conference and sunk a sub stantial part of the American fleet In exchange fer a promise from the Japanese and other governments that they would not resort to war. This was followed by a policy of starving the Army and Navy during the nard ing, Coolidge and noover administrations.
