possible to kindle in the minds of pa
triotic 'Americans a spirit of inquisit-
iveness strong enough to demand to
know why the guards are kept on the
border? Is it impossible to cause the
people of the country to take notice
of the fact that over 100,000 of the
country's picked men have been re
moved from the sourcesof production
at a time when production means so
much? And, furthermore, is it also,
impossible to awaken an intelligent
