God Bless America '
A. V. Peterson, Castle Rock Advocate
After hearing a vivid review of
the capture of Norway by Germany,
in an address by Carl J. Hambro,
president of the Norwegian parlia
ment—the capture by a ruthless
adversary of a peace-loving na
tion, which for one hundred twenty
six years has lived free from the
strife of war—my thoughts turned
naturally to the blessings we still
enjoy in America, and also to the]
possible danger of their loss.
Our constitutional right to. work,
speak and think as we please is a
blessed heritage. but indifference to
elements at work within our country
to destroy these liberties. may event
ually deprive us of many of them.
To overcome that indifference.
probably nothing has stirred up pa—
triotic sentiment recently more than
inspiring song, “God Bless America,"
but we urge that our citizens also
fervently resolve, in defense of lib
erty and freedom, to give more than
lip service to the noble sentiments
of that song.
Pray devoutly that the chaotic
conditions in Europe may not be
visited within our borders—that we
may continue as a liberty-loving
people.
The first evidence of the ap
proach of the dictator form of
government to a nation is a de
pression to restrict the‘ freedom of
the press. A dictatorship cannot
exist in a nation in which freedom
of the press is round, and freedom
of the press is never found in a
dictator ruled nation. There is
something about the free dissem
ination of the news and dictator-
Ihips that is just not. compatible.‘
We recall that after the last
World war all claims of mistreat
ment by the German army were
branded as propaganda. The evi
dence of mistreatment of citizens
of invaded territories during the
present war has become so generally
known that there will be no possi
bility of its being denied m ' the
future .by those who sympathize
with Hitler or who wish to attract
attention because of their exagger
ated tolerance.

Golden Shell
Till MODERN 0". FOR PRECISION-BUILI’ CA
I! BLUE LAWS .
I Here is a thought for your next
Sunday! In the state of Delaware
there are 500 citizens answering
court summons due to violating a
200-year old blue law that has been
sleeping peacefully for many years
and has just recently been brought
to life and the notice of the public.
This means that all activity must
cease in the way of enployment dur
ing the Sabbath, lest its concern
charity and necessity. The law en- ‘
forcing officer insists that the old
edict either be followed or erased
completely from the official records.
This brought on the court sum
mons that hit milkmen, motormen,
delivery boys, employees of radio
and gasoline stations, of restaur
ants, drug stores and newspapers.
Even a minister was officially crit
icised for broadcasting over the
radio on Sunday. It has been a
goodly number of years since our
country was covered by blue laws
in certain cities and states. They
never were very popular when in
their prime and from the action
in Delaware we judge they haven’t
gained in popularity through the
years. _ J
The five year plan in Russia is a
complete failure. It was promoted
by the workers who got the idea that
they possessed all the brains‘and all
the intelligence of the nation. The
laborers have imposed their pro
gram upon the farmers and the
farm industry has broken down com
pletely .under it. The army of Rus
sia is the largest but least efficient
in all the world. The laborers have
banished the church from Russia
and have made a mockery of the
marriage ceremony. So inefficient
are they in their planning, that
many bulidings fall down at one
end before the other end is com
pleted. The radical labor leaders
have ruined Russia and the coun
try will never be much of a power
until their hold is broken.
OF IMPORTANCE
3 The weekly newspaper gets its
rating in the line-up of important
factors in American homes. 49.6 per
cent of the families in this land
subscribe to a weekly newspaper and
that is mighty close to being half
of the families of the U. S. This is‘
reason enough for the weekly news
paper to keep scoured and shined
for the approval of its'many read-
I. 5
ers. There aren’t many editors of
such papers who haven’t a pretty
good idea of what their subscribers
like, the sort of news that covers
the local field, the type of nation
al copy that gives the most for the
space. With interested subscribers
taking time to be helpful in edit
?ing the news, of offering timely
suggestions, of helpful hints for
features, of scratching here and
there, your Courier-Reporter editor
has the opportunity of getting close
to the field he serves, to know what
his public wants. We are glad that
more people are becoming con
scious of the part their weekly news
paper plays in the American scheme
of things.
