TIME FOR ACTION ir
It is to the credit of our government that so far, enemy ;r
aliens have been most leniently dealt with, even when C
those aliens have given indubitable evidence that they "
sought to do the country harm. No drastic action has c
been taken against even the worst offenders, but one and t
all have been humanely with. Internment for the dura- u
tion of the war has been about the most severe penalty F
yet inflicted. R
It does seem that consideration should and would beget a
consideration, yet instances are multiplying that it does d
not so work. While enjoying almost perfect immunity W
from harm, themselves, these enemy aliens seem bent on M
wreaking as much harm as possible on the country that u
has spared and protected them. c?
All of this is now having its logical effect. With great- 8
er frequency now come reports of mob violence against t
the country's enemies. The anger of the people is becom- h
ing aroused and they are taking the law into their own d
" This is to be deplored, but thereis only one way to pre
vent it. That is for this government to recognize sedition b
wherever it rears its ugly head, and crush it with an iron h
The day is past when any man in America can occupy f
middle or neutral ground. Every man, woman and child in
the country MUST be classed under one of two heads- s
friends or enemies. There is absolutely no other ground to
stand upon. I am either for or against my government. h
You are either for or against your country.
It would seem that German sympathizers in this country s
would be more careful of their own safety than to uselessly "
arouse the anger of the entire nation. They must surely t
know that all their outrages can have but one result- c
creating a hatred and loathing for them and their kind. '
Surely they can not imagine that their efforts will count t
for anything in the final result. This being the case, the
people appraise their action at its true value-unreason
ing loyalty to a country they have deserted and unreason
ing hostility and treachery to a country and a people that -
have taken them in and protected them.
The government should force every man's hand. Every t
man should be compell^d to lay his cards on the table- r
come clean--or take the consequences.
And the consequences should not be in the nature of a
The desperate German drive on the western front had
one effect that will not give any satisfaction to Germany. t
It has resulted in the United States speeding up prepara- '
tion, and troops are to be rushed to France as fast as the f
combined transportation facilities of both the United
States and Great Britain can put them across. As they t
arrive on the other side they will be absorbed into the f
armies of the Allies, and what they may lack in training C
will be rubbed into them in short order. This will prove
of benefit to the troops themselves as well as materially
strengthening the allied front. With the help of Great f
Britain we should be able to make our power felt at the s
front very soon now. And surely there is need of the hellp
our troops can give. America will watch with feverish
interest the transporting of our troops, and hail the day ~
)vhen we shall have sent enough to turn the tide of battle
into an allied victory.
Plant seeds and grow bullets. Imp~ossible, you say? Not
at all. The great need of the allied forces on the front to
day is ample supl)ies of food. The need of the allied na
tions is food. Without it the war would pro~ve a failure, it
matter's not how many bullets we mold and send across. ~
i"ood and1 more food is the cry, and with it we will make1
effective the bullets. Hungry soldiers can have no heart
for fighting, and ours must fight this war to a finish.
