This is no time to quibble or to fool;
To argue over who was wrong,
To measure fealty with a worn footf
To ask: "Shall we keep still or
The Clock of Fate has struck; the
hour is here;
War is upon us now, not far away;
One question only rises, clarion clear:
"How may I serve my country,
day by day?"
Not all of us may join the khakied
Of those who answer and go forti;
The tide of war. But we can all be
And steady in our loyalty to themi
Not with unfettered thought or
tongue let loose
In bitterness and hate a child
But with a .faith, untroubled by
That honors those who put the rest
There is no middle ground on which
We've done with useless pro and
The one-time friend, so welcome in
Has turned upon us at our very
There is no way, with honor, to
Real patiiotism isn't cool then
You cannot trim the flag to fit your

The individual who uses more
sugar than is necessary is just as
much of a slacker as the perfectly
sound young man who should be in
the army and is still attempting to
evade the draft.
German spies in France and Amer
ica do no more harm than so-called
American citizens, men and women,
who refuse to substitute other foods
for the wheat and beef and sugar
which are needed for our soldiers
and the soldiers of our Allies in
Preserves, jams and canned fruits
are greatly relished by the fighting
men in France and enormous quan
tities are used by them. There is
danger that the soda drinking and
candy eating public in this country
will endanger the supply of pre
serves and jam for the soldiers.
Great quantities of fruits which
should go into preserves, jam, etc.
are going to be lost to human con
sumption and deprive our armies
and our people at home of a needed
food supply unless consumers of
sugar use it more economically.
We in America are still using con
siderably more than six ounces per
capita per day against one-half
ounce which is available in France.
The boys of the Radio Company,
who left here a little less than a year
ago, are now somewhere in France,
getting ready to play the greatest
game in life; in this game some ' of
them, at the very best that can be
don?, will lose their lives. If we
fail to do our duty there is no telling
how many of them will never come
home. If we fail to do our duty,
how can we bear the thought of fac
ing those who do come home? Our
main duty during the coming week
is to subscribe to War Savings
Stamps, and then, sometime Hnrind
the year, to buy the amount we are
pledged to buy.
