FOURTH SUGAR Use Syrups! And "Serve" the Cause of "Freedom! mm 1 'tt COMMONWEALTH'S ATTORNEY HENRY DeH. MOORMAN HAS THE TRUE AMERICAN SPIRIT To Citizens iff llrrrkinriio'e Count; ami the JVinth udicitil District: After nnture deliberation, I tun convinced Unit patriotic duty directs that I ptahM my per.sonul services nt tlie cotnmund of those in authority. To that end, I passed my examinations and will later enlist. A an officer, profc-isiunal man and far mer, I have deeply felt my responsibility in this world crisis and have earnestly etuleaviu'ed to perforin the obligations im posed; but, realizinz the horrible sacrihVe being made by our allies and what the future may hold for us, I have not satisfied my conscience and am going to d my full duty, even if it re quires the supreme sscrilice. While I may not individually accomplish much, I trust tint my action may at least exempli fy the sincere purposo and worthy sentiment of a true Ken tuckian. Nestled a my rural country and district are, safely inland, where the real results of the war are and will be last and least felt, where resultant high prices and ''money getting" seem to somewhat overshadow the seriousness of the world wide situa tion and our duties, I am impressed th it there should be great er willingness to volunteer and less effort to escape the draft, and more active and earnest co-operation by our citizenship with the government. I think it is, by far, wiser and safer for us to promptly aid our allies, possibly preventing their do feat and a subsequent newly-aligned assault upon or invasion of our own country, which is now and will continue a most fn viting prize to a bankrupt and hungry world. At least, I be lieve our country and every citizen should throw full weight into the struggle thereby finally securing and supporting real "Peace for All," founded on "Punishment of Wrong and Eternal Right" not ''German Might, "and France and Belgium will be indemnified. War to us has heretofore largely meant oppression, invasion, violence to our persons and homes and real contact with the enemy. The United States of today is too big for this. As with the individual, so is the nation; the smaller units make and characterize the greatest one, and rc sponsibilites increase with position, accomplishments and pos sessions. Today, in our national grandeur, we are charged with corresponding responsibilities to our strength, enlighten ment and blessings, and we undoubtedly lead the world; and, in a way, are largely able to secure its ultimate preservation or to permit continued chaotic struggle. As for me, rather than chance or wait, 1 am willing to meet the "selfmade" en emies of all uunkind on their own grounds, those brutal in vaders of Belgium and France, the assailants and liendish per secutors of defenseless women and children, the desecrators of homes and happy places, men with orders from a power-intoxicated military genius, but without pity or personal honor and thirsting for human blood. All through time, virile men have offered their lives in defense of their countries, but now is an opportunity to tight offensively for the preservation of our se (Continued on page three) :xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx; Mammoth Bronze Turkeys from Prize Winners.
