F. & Beardeley, at Union Meet-
ing Service Urge* Prepared-
neae and Adequate
ATTENDANCE WAS LARGE
In Spite of the Heat, the United Pre»-
byterlan Church is Well
Universal military training and
adequate preparedness was advocated
by the Rev. F. G. Beardsley in a ser
mon on "patriotism," at the first of
the union Sunday evening services,
in the United Presbyterian church
last evening. A large audience was
present in spite of the high tempera
ture. Rev. H. B. McElree, pastor of
the church, presided. The scripture
lesson, was read by Rev. A. C. Ernst.
The invocation was given by Rev. E.
B. Newcoxnb. Rev. Jones, curate of
the Episcopal church, delivered the
In opening. Rev. Mr. Beardsley
said: "Next Tuesday marks the H'dth
anniversary of our nation's birth.
The development of this country since
that time has been truly remarkable.
After a comparison of the country as
it was then and as it is now, the
speaker continued, "A duty which we
all owe our country Is patriotism.
Patriotism has been defined as de
votion to one's country and by this
we should understand devotion to the
laws, the institutions, and the history
of our country. This does not imply
that we should refrain from criticism
when injustice and wrongs exist in
our country. If wrongs and injustice
prevail, then it Is not only our privil
ege, but our duty as a'people to cor
rect those wrongs. But, even though
wrongs exist, we ought not on that
account to be disloyal to our country.
Rather we should aim to correct those
wrongs. With, this understanding, we
all may subscribe to the sentiment:
'My country: may she always be in
the right. But right or wrong, my
Devotion to Countiy.
"Patriotism is or should be an In
telligent devotion to our country.
Books are better than bayonets, bal
lots than bullets, while the great bul
warks of our nation are," not our arm
ies and navies, but our public schools.
When I say that, I do not wish to be
understood as being opposed to ade
quate preparedness and adequate na
tional defenses. I do not wish to bo
understood among' those well meaning
and undiscriminatlng persons, who
favor peace at any price. I am not
a militarist, but I do believe that the
liberties, purchased by the blood and
heroic sacrifice of our forefathers, are
worth fighting for. I do not believe
It wise to maintain a great standing
army, for that is opposed to the gen
ius of our institutions. I do believe,
however, that every boy from the age
of 14 to 18 ought to receive some
training in military science and have
some training in the arts of war. Ac
cording to the laws of our land, ev
ery able bodied citizen from the ago
of 18 to 45 Is liable to military ser
vice. For this service, every boy
should be prepared.
"In the third place, patriotism is
unselfish devotion to our country.
Nathan Hale, who sacrificed his life,
and Governor Nelson of Virginia, whp
sacrificed his property, In the revolu
tion, are examples of patriotism.
During the civil war, our fathers liv
ed on short rations and received $13
per month, as compensation for their
services. Was it for this that they
fought? Was it for this th0,4 they left
home and friends, and the pleasure
of peace, to endure the hardship and
privations of war? Never! It was
patriotism that prompted their sacri
fices. They fought to defend their
country's flag, and it is a result of
their devotion that that flag Is un
sullied. Though stormed at by shot
and shell, though stained by the dust
of many battles, not a single star was
blotted out from its field of glory,
not one stripe wrested from Its folds
of crimson and white.
The Boys of Company L.
"The other day, Keokuk did itself
proud, when it bade adieu to the boys
of Company L», when they took their
departure no doubt to fight In de
fense of our country's flag. Why did
those boys go? Was it for the paltry
50 cents a day that they are to re
ceive for their service? You know
and I know they would not have left
remunerative positions, homes and
friends, and loved ones, fgr any such
stipend. But through motives of pat
riotism, of unselfish devotion to our
country, they are sacrificing them
selves for our country's good."
In closing, after referring to many,
gj^nioua Sacrifices for our1 country
in the peat, the speaker said: "My
friends, ours is indeed a great and
glorious nation. For it our fathers
and forefathers sacrificed themselves.
Our liberties have been purchased hy
their blood. Our boys today In the
pride and strength of their young
manhood are ready to sacrifice them
selves In our country's defense and
for our country's good. By maintain
ing the highest principles of liberty
and th© loftiest spirit of patriotism,
let us prove ourselves worthy of these
sacrifices. In peace or war may we
stand ready to serve our country."
Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge, head of the
anti-suffrage movement, is the mother
of five sons, two of whom are run
ning ambulances in France. She is
very proud of these boys, who are
willing to do the thing they can do
best for the www ofthe allies.
