4-MINUTE SPEECHES BY

Throughout the entire course of
this war there has been latent ir
marny hearts the hope-inexpressed
perhaps only half realized- that
somewhere, someone would discovei
a halfway house between victory and
defeat. "There is no such half-way
house," said Lloyd George. "Let there
be no such misunderstanding," says
President Wilson. Our present and
immediate task is to win this' war
and nothing can turn us aside from
it until it has been accomplished.'
These are words of gravest impor
tance. Do you realize, my fellow.
citizens, what they mean? They mean
what John Paul Jones meant, when he
sent back to the offer to surrender, in
the ringing' words, "We haven't yet
begun to fight." Clearly and ever
more clearly the conviction is borne
home to all of us that whatever the
cost, we must see this thing through

no alternative between victory and
defeat. Do you ask why? Picture to
yourself personal conditions, the sit
uations of your own government, and
that of all the enemies of Germany,
if the Prussian war lord, drunk with
victory, should emerge triumphant,
from this war.
He has boasted of courre, that the
United States would be made to repay
to Germany all that she has spent for
this war; but that would be a sum so
large that the indemnity France was
made to pay after the Franco-Prus
sian war would be a trifle beside
it but an indemnity, however large,
wouldl be the least of it.
Consider the nature of our enemies,
violators of Belgium, enslavers of civ
ilian copulations, murderers of women
and children, bomnbarders of undefend
ed towns, savage and cruel beyond
the imagination of civilized people.
Enemy of four-fifths of the world.
What do you suppose would be his
attitude toward those whom he had
