war they'll break preparedness's
back and knock it completely out.
America preparing now is like a
man preparing to fight two or three
other men after they batter each
other to smithereensleaying them
unfit to fight any one. Itwould not
take a very big man to lick two ex
hausted big ones. He wouldn't have
to be so well prepared either. Wait!
That war over there is not ended
yet and it is not going to end for a
long time, not until these money
mad lords see fit to end it, and the
poor fighting men won't have a word
to say about it, either. Frank
f the understanding that it be turned
overto the syndicate as an instru
ment in its hands to exploit and rob'
the people. That, your royal high
ness, is state socialism, and you and
the rest of your cursed system is the
junk that goes with it.
On the other hand, the Panama'
canal is socialistic in its operation
Though conceived in sin and born in:
cussedness, it was redeemed by Goe

You talk about what you will give
us! Why, you great big chunk of
fossilized greed, you can't give us a

STATE SOCIALISM-His royal
highness, the king of the Wall street
pirates, will give us "government
ownership and all the junk that goes
with it" So the papers, say. Thanks,
Mr. J. P. Your generosity will never
be forgotten, but we win go you one
better and give ourselves govern
ment ownership and operation.
No, your highness, don't delude
yourself with the idea that the com
ing regime will be satisfied with state
socialism and the junk that goes with
it No, indeed! We really supposed
that man as astute and wise as you
knew the difference between govern
ment control and government opera
tion. We will give you a concrete
illustration showing the difference.
You are, no doubt, an interested
stockholder in the Guggenheim
scheme to gobble up the millions of
acres of coal lands of Alaska. Of
course, you exploiters of the public
domain couldn't get in onto the ter
ritory without a railroad, could you?
No, with all of your billions of illicit
money, your interlocking directorate
didn't have the brain and genius to
tackle the job. No! it takes the
brainy brown of industry, the despis
ed workers, such men as Goethals
and his industrial army, to do the big
things of life, and so, in your help
lessness, you called on the govern
ment to build the road for you, with

I like The Day Book because it tells
the truth, no matter who it helps or;
