Congressman Haine:;, who was in

"This is a day of serious unrest."

AU these elements aro headed even- ,

efficiently organized. Everything is
organized except Americanism.
The People Lack Interest.
"The people of this country aro
going to the devil," Congressman
Haines said. "Sixty per cent of the
people in the United States are not
even theoretically connected with
any church, and their interest in the
salvation of humanity could be
measured with a foot rule.
"Tho only real Americans left are
in the South, aiid there rests the
chief hope of the nation. We want
to organiza!. We must organize if we
expect to counteract the spirited So
