A football game, with Warsaw
mating some worthy orronent
enth month rolls around again we
honor a magnificent anniversary in
the grim setting of a new war .
It is the nnnive.sary of the Arn
istice that brought a triumphant
end to our fighting efforts in the
last war 24 years ago today .
Because we are engaged in a
second World War today, some
pessimistic individuals have wailed
that we should not observe this an
niversary this year.
What doleful he.esy!
It indicates a complete lack of
understanding of the s gnificance
of the observance of Armistice
Day. This day has never meant on
ly the mere celebration of the end i
of fightir-; and the return of pea
ace aftc. .j.ng months of war. If
that we .11 we have been cole
brating o.: November 11th all th
ese yea. s-s .ice 1918, w could have
celebrated tiiat anniversary whet
her we had won or lost that war!
What we have celebrated on each
Armistice Uay was the glorious
victory wo bv the valor of Ameri-
1 can arms which p eserved our gr
eat heritage of freedom and liber
ty in what was then the greatest
atack ever made on our way of li

have never lost a war. WE ARE
NOT GOING TO LOSE THIS
ONE! In that contemplation of the
meaning of Armistic Day we find
solid encourage. nent today fo.' the J
big sk ahead.
To be sure e have lost battles
in this war. We have lost men,
ships, and territory. We have been
slow again in rising in our mighty
When the full force of our new
ly forged military power is turn
ed on, the story of this war will
be different. Already our fighting
men of today, fighting thus far at
initial disadvantage, have equalled
in gallantry of action, in contem
pt of odds, and in disregard of toil,
pain, and the menace of death, the
finest traditions of our soldie.s and
sailors of the last war. They sho
uld. They are our sons. They are
chips off the old block. We are all
tremendously proud of them . We
are thrilled to see them inscribing
in glory such few names as Bata
an, Corregidor, the Coral Sea, Mid
way, and the Solomons, in the
American scroll of fame where the
men of 1917-18 wrote the names
of Cantigny, Chateau Thierry, St.
Mihiel, and the Meuse-Argonnle .
The brave men who died to win
the last war, did not die in vain
just because we are again at war.
They gave their lives to extend our
freedom and 1 berty for an entire
generation in the most tragic and
turbulleant per od in history. With
out their ready and willing sacri
fices there would today be no Un
ited States Government. To perpe
tuate that government is not thro
wing away your life. The contin
ued success of that government is
today our greatest responsibility,
because in it lies the hope of all
freedom-loving men everywhere
for theii1 eventual emancipation fr
om slavery. ' '
Freedom and liberty are-never
static. They must be fought for to
be held. Only eternal vigilance &
constant readiness to defend them
can keep them ours . '
Of course, the lieroio men .who
died for us in 1917-18 did not die
in the belief they were Insuring
our heritage for only 25 years- Th

We promptly court martlaled Mit

men were constant warnings and -pleas
of The American Legion. The
Legionnaires were realists. They
knew that the peace won at such
tragic cost in the last war was be
ing rapidly lost. They demanded
that we plan ahead of time to ad- 1
opt conscription, and to draft dol
lars as well as men, at the onset,
of war, that we remember our
forefathers' warning, "In time of

But the Issue is now squarely up
to us. The past sacrifices of our
hero dead will no longer protect us
from here on. It is now up to us.
It is now our turn to sacrifice, with
a vengeance, to work and toll over
time to make up for our past joy

and died for us in the last war. .
We've got to work and fight: .
That is the message I want to
leave with you on this da . We
must 'dedicate ourselves fervently,
fanatically to the job at hand.
To win the war we must whip the
enemy. Our fighting men will take
care of that. But our men must
have the ships .the supplies, ft ev- .

erything they need to assure vic
tory. To supply thees is the "wln-the-war"
job of all of ous who stay
at home. We must let nothing, ab
solutely nothing, interfere with
To win the peace we must send
to the conference table, after the 1
enemy is completely crushed, only
the best qualified men and wo-
men . They must write a world-wide
bill of rights which will guara
ntee to all peoples the four free
doms freedom of speech, free
dom of worship, freedom f .fin 1 r

forever remove the seeds of future
onflicts. We must not again sink
