The pacifist or slacker is a traitor to his country.
This is the only way to designate~either of this class of
people. You are either a 100 per cent American in all that the
name implies or you are an enemy of th&jgovernment. You
are either for or against.
If you are disposed to act or feel like a pacifist, keep it tc
yourself or if you influence anyone else in any way along those
lines, you are a traitor to that extent because you withhold your
strength from the government and it is that strength that is
now vitally essential.
If a pacifist, by ^argument or influence, is this sort of a
traitor, he is in the same class with the man in the trenches that
deserts at the critical moment in the fight.
The biggest thing in history is staking place at this time
and every man with a clear eyed vision of his full: duty will
seize the great opportunity to do his full share. To buy a bond
or contribute to the Red Cross does not make anyone a patriot.
It is only when you do everything^ that lies in your power to
do that you find the full measure and privilege of patriotism.
If you fail to do that, just to that extent are you betraying the
cause that every decent man in the world is fighting for.
Resources count in this war fully as much as the men. If
our armies are not suppliedand the only way this can be done
is by the people at homethey will aiP in their battles. Fail-
ure of supplies, or in their source, makes a weak spot in the
line. The weak spot will surely result in the loss of life at the
front, the loss of a big battle, the taking of prisoners-bandit
prolongs the war. It may mean the loss of it.
If industry is interrupted and supplies fail to reach our
soldiers through the indifference of any man or body of men,
just to that extent do they become responsible for the spilling.
of life blood by the men who are fighting for him that he and
his family may enjoy the blessings and opportunities of free-
dom and democracy. This applies to men in every walk of
life, the employer, the laborer, the farmer the professional
man, ^he commercial man. The responsibility rests on every-
one alike.
The. Public Safety Commission feels- that its first great ef-
fort should be made towards bringing every Minnesotan to a
full realization of his individual responsibility in this crisis in
order tha*t, as a whole, we may make our state do its full duty,
that it may be made efficient to the last degree by and through
the unified effort of its citizens. All questions can well be sub-
jugated to this one great patriotic effort because we have a
war to win and, nothing else can be of vital consequence until
this is done. ,..v

It is undoubtedly true, as asserted in a recent plea to
editors to check false war rumors, that enemy agents have been
busy starting depressing gossip in this country. It is undoubt-
edly true that such gossip has the effect desired by its authors.
But it is also true that most of suclv gossip would make no
progress whatever if the people felt that they could depend
absolutely upon the administration at Washington to give them
prompt and accurate information concerning things which may
properly be made public. Whenever the people of the country
can feel confident that "if it hasn't been announced by the
Bureau of Information it isn't true," they will cease to pay any
attention whatever to idle or malicious rumors. Unfortunately
the people still have in mind instances in which the giving out
of important news was needlessly delayed, and they can not
forget the instance in which important news was "elaborated."
That the cause of the United States has suffered from such
a policy is not the fault of the newspapers nor of the people,
but of the officials through whom'both press and people had a
right to expect frank information. Whenever the official pub-
licity bureau restore themselves in the confidence of the people.
the_gossip mongers will be out of a job.
Perhaps after reading of the action taken by many schtfor'
authorities in the United States, the Kaiser may conclude that
if he wants to maintain a place in world trade after the war
he will have to make English a required study in all German

Again the Baudette Region gets up on its hind legs and
yelpsabou being the frontand rear of the county division pro-
paganda, and again takes issue with the Pioneer on what it
said relating to a certain brewery getting into the division prob-
lem. Oh, well, have it your own way, only we stand pat #n
our statement. We'll be willing to take the word of a reputable
state official, in position to know what he is talking about,
without reference to the Baudette organization of county divi-
sionists. Maybe they heard of something of which they didn't
kpow much about. That sometimes^ happens, y' know.
Democrat, of Arkansas, argued in defend-
ings the Creel Information Bureau, that*-the subordinates were
not responsible^ for the appointments and the mistakes con-
stained in the bulletins. He-insisted ihat the responsibility lies
with the head, of-the bureau.t And he was right.
