fight abroad."
"It will avail little to win a war for democracy abroad if in the prosecution of that war all the
traditional rights and privileges of the people of this nation have been surrendered and abrogated."
"This is the time to test our sincerity. We must guard against any acts in state or national
life which would in any way place doubt upon our honesty or cast reflection upon our motives."
"The battles of industrial democracy are still to be fought at home they are going on con
tinually, and we can not ignore them if we are to garner our full strength as a nation. Your
Nonpartisan league comes forward offering a program of industrial democracy. Your great battles
