the little un
On December 7, mi, Sunday afttr
noon brought the news that b!?W
American isolation ism sky high. v
Now, in 1947, the war is pver ....
the family is doing its part in ottiey
peoples' crises by sending . a food
package every month to a European
family. Nobody is isolationist any
more?just a little reluctant, some
times, to accept the high cost of all
those worthy plans to help a bunch
of floundering nations out of their
mess. V - ? "
Must the Sunday morning idler of
1947 drift into a black, atomic after
noon in order to discover the sort of
world his own ingenuity has created!
Certainly^ not, if he will rub the
sleep from eyes and look at the
facts, from all sides they make de
mands: Billions for European recon
struction. A five-^ear program for
developing American air power, cost
ing more billksis. A multibillion
dollar project to secure the Panama
Canal from attack.' A huge program
of expansion for atomic energy, de
manding double the billions expend
ed up to now.
How, in the face these multiply
ing demands,- is it possible, to tidbit
in terms of yesterday's business, yes
s no myrf than a
tion marking the failure to find as
yet the positive assurance of peace.
Though we must have them, we can
not rely on them. If the atomic *g4
can force men to pay so stupendous a
price for armed insecurity, how in
calculably more important it is to be
willing to-pay the price of peace.
That includes vision?the vision
that sees beyond the pleasant allure
ments* of wage increases, tax reduc
tions,' easy credit, quay living; be
yond cherished customs add partial
sympathies; beyond yesterday's Sat
isfactions and today's prejudices; be
yond the insane delusion that you can
toss an atom bomb into history and
then do no more than tinker with a
The whole concept of what is nor
mal may need revision. Materialism
has too often set the norm in the
past?dogmatically, in Russia, un
consciously in the democracies. In an
age almost Arehdian by contrast with
the present, Lincoln said:'
The dogmas of a quiet past-are ^in
adequate to the stormy present. "As
pur case is new, we must think a
new, and act anew.
How much more is this tree today!
"Aese are thoughts for a
morning. They should turn ns to
infinite riches of the (fivme Spirit,
we can draw for the.
ce, lore, and bold ; .
to face the future. Wfien
men come to themaehres, the fission
of matter can herald the spiritual
dawn of 'a new fcge. IIM
