Parts of the poem, entitled, "The Service Flag," follow: From dreams of peace the nation's soul Awoke to warlike might. And echoed back her leaders' ealt "Gold help us! We must fight!" But misty eyes of mothers saw The hoys In battle line. And quivering hearts in anguish cried. "Not mine, oh, God! Not mine!" But listening youth heard Freedom's voice. And wilting answer tnadi With steady, step they marched- away. Eager and unafraid. And if, iHyAoubt and selfish love. We sought to stay them then. In children's eyes we saw, new-horn. The fearless souls of men. And though our hearts shall nearly break For lads so far away, And very souls shall weary be. We still will work and pra> That strength and courage do not fall Tilt battles shall lie o'er And light through all the world pre vail And war shall be no more. CV0A NCE TONIGHT.
