War with all its horrors has been
brought to our shores. Despite the
President's efforts and the people's
fervent hopes against war, it has been
forced on us by a predatory oversea
power and we have accepted the
challenge we have chosen our only
alternative. Every citizen of the
nation, man, woman or child can do
a portion toward conserving the en
ergies of the country and increasing
its strength in this hour of trial. Let
no one fail.
Democracy and autocracy are
struggling in a death grapple. Hay
the sceptre of right and justice pre
vail in the hands of the people and
thus hasten the day of the federation
of the world.
Eastern newspapers and magazines
find a great deal of delight in car
tooning the Middle West as asleep to
the seriousness of the international
situation. Evidently they forget that
there are other means of showing pa
triotism than by displaying a flag in
every conspicuous place and shouting
with feverish excitement on the street
corners about the "call of the nation."
The Middle West has always equaled
the occasions in the past, and it will
do so again.
MOBILIZING OUR RESOURCES
The mobilization of troops is not
the only form necessary for the prep
aration which the United States
There must be a mobilizing of our
resources. President Wilson in his
war message to Congress made clear
the necessity for the assembling of
the wealth of the country in the sen
tence, "It will involve the crgani
zation and mobilization of nil of the
material resources of the country to
supply the materials of war and serve
the incidental needs of the nation in
the most abundant, and 'vet the most
economical and efficient way pos
sible." Wars are lost for want of food,
clothing and other necessities of life.
Preparedness does not mean men,
guns, aeroplanes nor guns alone, but
it means wheat, corn, bread, clothing,
shoes everything that is needed by
those who are engaged In the war
and those who are left b2hind.
Reports come.out from Germany of
food riots: the people are starving.
Germany apparently has men and mu
nition but not the one fundamental
for success food.
The mobilization of our material
resources means an increase in the
acreage of all grains that will pro
duce food for man or beast, an in
crease in the manufacture of canned
goods and other food products, a sav
ing of waste in manufacture. By the
use of gold we have gained through
the European struggle we can give
financial aid to the Allies, but what
they need most are our material re
sources. Not a vacant inch should be found ;
food should be produced everywhere.
The wheels of industry must be set
spinning to the utmost capacity, and
those manufacturing products of less
importance should turn their ener
gies to the making of products more
vital and essential to the welfare of
Patriotism has its various forms of
display. To the average person it is
the man who marches to the front
who is the personification of patriot
ism and he is but there are others.
The man in the field, in the factory,
in the forge room and on the supply
train is performing just as great an
act of patriotism as the soldier. True
it is that his life is not so much en
dangered, but it is upon him that the
life of the man at the front depends,
The mobilization of resources must
begin sow every vacant lot and acre,
speed up the wheels of manufacture,
utilize all waste products and stand
ready to throw your every energy in
the great bringing together of the
Along with the egg show which is
to be given in May, there might be
held a potato festival, an onion fete
and a vegetable fair.
The United States, with its two liv
ing former presidents, has nothing on
Russia, which has a former Czar.
THE' AMERICAN WAR MONTH
With the declaration by Congress
that a state of war exists with Ger
many, another mark must be placed
on the American war record for Ap
ril. This month the period when
nature is at her best has been an
ominous one in American History.
All the important wars of our nation
were begun in April, and many other
important events have occured dur
ing this month.
From behind rocks, trees and fences
the American minutemen "fired the
shot heard round the world" on Ap
ril 19, 1775, and thus started the Rev
olution. Just nine years later, to the

THE TiAlLY MISSOUBIAS, FRIDAY

The first hostilities of both Mexican
struggles occured in April, one in 1S46
and the other in 19U. Fort Sumter
was fired on April 12, 1861. and on the
9th of April, four years later, General
Lee surrendered to the Union forces.
