forces, but V further retrenchments
would be made in the regular expendi
tures of the government. This policy
would, of course, mean less taxation.
, Mr. Hoover seems to fear that un
less such a policy is adopted, there
is the danger of ,an economic disaster
which could destroy freedom in this
country. ;.' In connection with these
forebodings, one should not. fail to
note that in September, 1940, when
Great Britain alone resisted Nazi ag
gression, Mr. Hoover warned that if
the United States joined in the war,
it would "inevitably become a totali
tarian dictatorship." This prophecy
has not been tfulfilled and we quote
it, not to refute the famous Ameri
can, but to show that his tendency
toward isolationism has been of ,long
Not much comment is needed on
Paragraph 10, relating to the recoverj
by Congress of its constitutional pow
iet over betrinninsr warfare. We are
inclined to aeree that' the elected ren-
resentatives .of the people should de
termine the question of war or peace,
must, m all fairness, the conduct of the
nations foreiem nolicv is TlrpH in fho
hands of the President. In the modern
world it is somewhat doubtful wheth
er Congress, with its politics, log-roll
ing ana subserviency to popular pres
sure, could effectively safeguard the I
real interests of the country, especial-1
ly whenthratened by aggression from
an autocratic government. :
...The idla advanced Ty Mr. Hoover;
that the United States does not need
ground troops for its own defense,
and should hot use them outside the
United States, is extremely attractive
to young men being called up for mili
tary service and (their parents, rela
tives ana inenas. Nevertheless, tnere
is nothing in the past history of war
fare to indicate that any nation can
adequately protect itself by air and
naval forces alone. Neither is there
reason to believe that such action, if
applied to Europe, - in the event of
a Communist attack, would be effective.
, MEETING HELD
. The Young People's Class meeting
of the Berea Church of Christ was
held on Wednesday night, February
21. at tiie home of Edward Lane. The

Miller. Two poems were then read.
The lesson was the 18th and 19th
chapter of Acts. ;
For the closing hymn the song
"Leave It There" was sung. Benedic
tion was pronounced by Mrs. Horace
