Blunder Of First Magnitude
(News and Observer)
It is good to see the Association of American
Colleges by a vote of 210 to 35 have declared
that an immediate decision on peace-time com
pulsory military service would be "a blunder
of the first magnitude." Those voting repre
sented 600 American colleges. They truly say
that it "might readily become a dangerous po
litical weapon with us, as has been true in
Much of this agitation while war is on is due
to Fear, and "the only thing we need to fear is
Fear." Many people who advocate compul
sory military service are moved to that course
because they have no faith that when peace
comes it can be made lasting." A burnt child
dreads fire." Therefore, they say, we must be
prepared to go to war on an instant's notice.
The failure in 1910-20 haunts them. That is the
only justification for militarism. Those who be
lieve we will profit by that blunder are not
stampeded by fear into advocating an imperia
Independent of all other considerations, one
thing ought to be accepted: We have a great
war to win, after which- we must undergird
the peace. Until these two goals are reached
no controversial policy should be invoked. If
we should fail again, as when the League of
Nations was scuttled, we must be strong in a
military sense. But we must not fail. All
energies should be united to secure an inter
national organization to end war. It can be
achieved. When it has been achieved no Ameri
can will wish compulsory military service. And
the militarists know this and wish to get in
their imperialistic plan during the war.

The reasons for panics, money
strengencies, is due to insufficient
currency in circulation, upon which
the business of the country may be
transacted. We all know that when
money is scarce, prices drop. A dol
lar buys more when there are few
dollars in circulation.
they return good for evil.
So.ne one may say there are no
such folks. All Christians are such
if they are not such as described,
they are not Christians. The war
prisoners rescued a few days ago on
Luzon could, and are giving explana
tions of the difference between the
sons of Belial, and the sons of God.
Christians have been adopted by
their Heavenly Father.
Since the time of Christ, Christians
have suffered persecution and often
they had to worship secretly, in caves,
in the night time, and many suffered
death. The world often tried to stamp
out Christianity. The Bible was a
hated book, and the most diligent ef
forts to destroy it at various times
were made. Some have said the pres
ent war is a "Religious War," an
effort to destroy the Bible and Christianity.
Some of our readers may think it
is sissy to talk on religious subjects,
that these religionists are cowardly,
wanting in manhood. The bravest
and truest in the present war are
Christian, and the most useful, and
loyal citizens of the civilians at home
It is my belief no permanent peace
can be established, except upon
Christian faith. Why have the Chris
tians of the earth been so persecuted?
They, the Christians, are peaceful.
They are peacemakers. They observ
ed the law where ever they have
lived. They are kind, merciful, re
turn good for evil, they do justly,
The Japs, not being able to win
against Americans, are trying to fool
their fellowcitizens by lying in their
news reports. They say for one
thing, that they have destroyed more
American airplanes than we have
had on that front. The Germans are
telling some truth these days, but
they started that too late. Folks
use to say "its too late to pray after
the Devil comes." The war news
would indicate that the Germans must
at least hide out.
server stated that "no country on
earth had prospered as has Soviet
Russia." The United States of Ameri
ca has done more in this war than
all other members in the Allied Na
tions. We are not boasting, nor com
plaining about the deliquency of any
other country, but I am saying no
other form of government could have
produced a people that could have
accomplished what America has ac
complished since this war started.
you ever heard. He stole a fiddle
once, and the owner and his friends,
got testimony to that. Will was mad,
and cussed awfully, but the boy? re
peated the proof they had and after
a long argument, Will said: "Well,
I don't care if I did steal it. If I
hadn't stole it, somebody else would."
Will used to go to preaching at Ben
salem, and take a back seat as did the
slaves before freedom, and a bunch
of boys would watch. When Will
went to the spring for a drink of
water after preaching, they followed,
and picked at him to have some fun.
Will would say every time they said:
"Better quit dat pickin' at me down
here, and de graves up yander,, I
aint a gwine to sin my hell for you."

It is the extra yield and quality that count
when you add up the income from your
farm at the end of the year. In many cases,
a small investment for an additional appli
cation of potash makes that' extra yield
and quality. Increased supplies of potash
now make possible the use of phosphate
potash mixtures for top-dressing legumes
and pastures and nitrogen-potash- mixtures
for side-dressing cotton, corn, and other
crops. Consult your official agricultural
advisers on. what mixtures to apply to
crops on your particular soils. Apply these
plant foods in the amounts recommended.

A citizen of the sandhills stuttered

he "cussed," they said he cussed with
a semma-demi-quiver." Reason, I
suppose, he said everything over
twice. Have you ever heard of Will
Chavis, an idiotic negro of the sand
hills? Will had sense enough to work,
and was not bad help on the farm,
if well managed. He was strong,
