"IN GOD WE TRUST." In these
times of military agitation-I think it
is about time that we Christians had
a little say. On our coins the U. S.
government has stamped these
words: "In God We Trust." This
means that we depend on God for
our protection. Then why should we
have a larger army and navy? Why
even the little army and navy we
have now?
It's an insult to God Almighty be
cause it shows that we do not believe
he is strong enough to help us by
himself alone.
So let us show God that we do
trust in him to help us by abolishing
our army and navy. Yes, even our
police and fire departments. Give
God full play and a chance to show
what He can do, and let the sentence,
"In God We Trust" mean what is
says every word of it It will then
cease to be considered a mere phrase
or byword, as it has been lately by a
whole lot of ignorant unbelievers and
atheists. A Christian.
GOLDEN TEXT, NO. 12. Letters
of Leo xm, page 24: "Hence by a
fresh act of impiety, unknown even
to very pagans, governments have
been organized without God and the
order, established by Him being taken
at all into account It has even been
contended that public authority or
iginates not from God, but from the
mass of the people." Page 26 : "They
cease not from asserting that all men
are by nature equal There is an
inequality of right and authority that
emanates from the Author Nature
Himself. According to Catholic
teaching, obedience is shown to be
easy, stable and honorable."
P. S. We declare: All men are
created equal; and: Governments de
rive their just powers from the con
sent of the governed. This only
seems to conflict with the above,
which is infallible. Pray for light
Though opposed to equality and dem
ocracy, Leo was fond of the United
States; page 327: "In our judgment'
and affection America occupies the
same place and rights as other states,
be they ever so mighty and imperial."

ANSWER TO ROBERT. I have
tried to avoid mixing myself into the
lengthy arguments on prostitution
which have appeared in The Day
Book from time to time, but I must
at last give my opinion.
Prostitution has existed since ante
diluvian times and I will venture to
say it will exist as long as the world .
remains. It may be eliminated, but
never eradicated. It is a natural in
stinct with. many. What have you
to say for your married women that
go astray? What is the cause of so
many divorces?
There are instances where men are
to blame for leading girls astray, but
that girl can t be altogether blame
less. It is impossible to wrap around
your finger the girl with high ideals
and self-respect Although it may be
that you have made her a lot of false
promises, there is where the girl or
woman is sometimes weak. As to the
dress, I fear you are much wrong.
When a habit is once formed you
think very little of it Take, for in
stance, tie bathing beaches. Go
there frequently and you will soon
lose your irritability. Once you be
come accustomed to a natural body
your thoughts will be just as natural .
I believe if the girls would wear noth- V
ing but tights there would not exist
any more evil than at the present
time. I love to see a person dress
in comfort I think a girl with low
neck dress and short skirt appears in
the prime of youth. It is good for her
health and she enjoys it What is the
use of having a lot of unnecessary
clothing on a hot day when there Is
np rail for some? Charles 0. J.
