This is the, oath that the applicant

absolutely and entirely renounces all
allegiance and fidelity to any foreign
prince, potentate or sovereignty ; that

requiting by evil the good that has
been done them In the generous and
unstinted hespitnllty with which the
People of the United States have wel
comed them to the liberty and the op
portunities of this free land. We must
believe that in many cases this is done
because of failure to understand what
this war really is.
This is a war of defense. It is per
fectly described in the words of the
Constitution which established this na
tion, "To provide for the common de-'
fense" and "To secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves and our posterity."
The national defense demands not
merely force, but Intelligence. It re
quires foresight, consideration of the
policies and purposes of other nations,
understanding of the inevitable or
probable consequence of the acts of
other nations, judgment asito the time
when successful defense may be made,
and when it will be too late, and prompt
action before it Is too late.
By entering this war the United
States availed itself of the very last
opportunity to defend itself.
