Stubborn Facte Cited.
"The power against which we are
arrayed has sought to impose its
will upon the world by force. At
this end It has increased armament
until it has changed the face of
war. In the sense In which we have
been wont to think of .armies there
are no armies in this struggle. There
are entire nations armed. Thus the
men who remain io till the soil and
man the factories are no less a part
of the army than is France, than
the men beneath the battle flags. It
must be so with us. It Is not an
army that we must shape and train
for war; it is a nation. To this end
our people must draw close in one
compact front against a common foe.
But this cannot be if each man pur
sues a private purposes. All must
pursue one purpose. T'je nation
needs all men; It but it needs each
man, not In the field that will most
pleasure him, but in the endeavor
that will best serve the common
good. Thus, through a sharpshooter
pleases to operate a trip hammer for
the forging of great guns and an ex
pert machinist desires to march with
the flag, the nation is being served
only when the sharpshooter marches
and the machinist remains at his
lever. The whole nation must be a
team in which each man shall play
the part for which he is best fitted.
To this end, congress has provided
that the nation must be organized
for war by selection and that each
man shall be classified for service
in the place to which it shall best
serve the general good to call him.
Landmark in Progrese.
"The significance of this cannot
be overstated. It is a new thing in
our history, and a landmark in our
progress. It is a new manner of ac
complishing and vitalizing our duty
to give ourselves with thoughtful
devotion to the common purpose of
us all. It is in no sense a conscrip
tion of the unwilling, it is rather
selection from a nation which has
volunteered its mass. It Is no more
a choosing of those who shall march
with the colors than it Is a selection
of those who shall serve an equally
necessary and devoted principle in
the Industries that lie behind the
battle line. ' -

The day here named is the time
upon which all shall present them
selves for assignment to their tasks.
