ARIZONA By Lambreth Mmn A Hancock INTEREST SLIPPING No-Hum the world would find something new to get all ex cited about. People are getting very tired of all the war new s and talk Stirring up a fight depends on starting the action at the psycho logical moment —which is pretty soon after everybody gets good and hot. Every moment after you pass that point the chances for a fight grow les» and less. Last September—last December — and even as late as last month w r e could have started a war in Europe The munition manufacturers had the world statesmen by the tail swinging them around until they were dizzy drunk. They were ready to fight or do anything. The public was swept in on the whirl —but vision i s clearing up and there is a noticable return to sane living again. Our officials, in toxicated on the war idea, are still trying to w'hoop things up but the average man on the street is tired of reading headlines about threats, treaties preparedness and training. If we could start and finish a war in a couple of days we possibly could have one. Folk would get into it as a sort of lark to get away from the hum-drum of daily routine but, as with a vacation, after a short time most of us are ready to settle back into doing something peaceful and construct ive—at least peaceful. We don’t like to waster so much concern and time over anything that only con tributes to a state of unrest and uncertainty and an increased tax- i headache. It is now time for a change of . program. The nation’s interest in war stuff has passed the peak, j I Fishin’ season is fast arriving, j Baseball is just around the corner, j Spring hats and Easter frocks must | be acquired. Flowers and a few j ve* r>b’ef. must be planted in the garden. These things can’t wait. A war can. GERMAN BUND We have waited purposely one week to say anything about our j reaction to the Bund meeting last! week in New York. Day after we were profanely angry about the whole mess. It is best to cool off a while before saying your say. A little distance and cool air helps to clear things up a bit. After a week the feeling is about "as thus” I—We1 —We don’t like ’em. 2—People got put in the pen during the World War for saying things that were not half as strong against the government as were some of | the attacks made in the bund meeting. 3 —Any public meeting, anywhere in the United States, that requires 1500 policemen to re tain order is a nuisance—a damn nuisance. 4 —-Free speech that is: destructive or threatening to our form of government is not free as | we understand it. s—Peoples—People who ! live here and work here and yet whose first love of country ifc some where else should leave this country for this country’s good as well as for their own good. 6 —As in World War days, there is no room in this country for the hyphenated-American. 7 Jewish immigration to this country began as early, if not before, German immigration. They knew the Jews w r ere here before they came over here. And yet, somehow T we feel that the German Bund meeting was a i good thing. If a dozen more such meetings could be staged over the country it would completely defeat the Bund movement in this country. The public generally was disgusted with its conduct and its reaction is going to be strong enough to cause loyal German- American people to bring pressure against their continuance. SIT-DOWNERS LOSE SEATS More than ever today we are certain that we do not want any person, from the Presiident on down, to monkey with the Supreme i Court. It i» the one sure function 1 of our government to keep things , level. Crazy ideas |and .notions and actions may crop up here and there, certain groups and in dividuals may take it up themselves to crash thru our regular running programs and take things into their own hands, but so long as we have a free and efficient Supreme Court no abuse can long continue. It was heartening this week to know that the Supreme Court had declared sit-down strikes illegal. If officials in high office had done their duty a decision of the Su preme Court would not have been necessary. Th sacred rights of persons and property are a basic part of our j democratic form of government The rights of labor, an adequate wage hour, proper working hours, safe working conditions —they all have their place. But none of the groups seeking any of these benefits has a right to take possession of private property to gain their ends. When this can be done we might as well fold up our machinery and quit. Chief Justice Hughes strikes at tthe heart of the issue when he stated: “The employes had the right to strike but they had no license to commit acts of violence or to seize their employer’s plant. To justify such conduct because of existing of labor dispute or of an unfair labor practice would be to put a premium on resort to force instead of legal remedies and to subvert the principles of law and order which lie at the foundations of society.” o ARIZONA IN WASHINGTON By Bob Merkley This is written in what is known as the Deep South. Five of us, all Arizonans, are on our way for a short vacation at home. But let us talk of the Southland. The South is not like the North or the West. Westerners think of the United States as one big country. We call the Easterners greenhorns and dudes, perhaps, but nonetheless, we know they are all potential Westerners. We want them to come out and live among us. But in the South they still memorialize the generals who tried to keep the hated Yankees out. In almost every town and city UNITED STATES SENATE February 22, 1939 ! Dear Mr. Editor: In view of the fact that I have ! been grossly misrepresented in some quarters), in connection with THE VINDICATORS movement which I started, I respectfully re quest that, in all fairness to me, you publish the contents of this letter. I wish to briefly state the aims of this program: 1. KEEP AMERICA OUT OF WAR by enacting strict neutrality jlaws; staying clear of foreign political entanglements and embroil ments; and stop meddling in the internal affairs of other nations. 2. BANISH AL L FOREIGN j "ISMS,” (Nazism, Fascism, and j Communism). 3. STOP ALL IMMIGRATION FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS, or until such time as all of our idle are re-employed. 4. REGISTER AND FINGER- I PRINT ALL ALIENS in order that we may ascertain the number of aliens in the United States and where located. 5. DEPORT ALL CRIMINALS j and UNDESIRABLE ALIENS and | expel those here illegally or those I who arrived legally and have re | mained illegally. The word “Vindicators” merely designates those who are participat ing in this nation-wide patriotic movement to bring about the enact ment of legislation to carry out the objectives stated above. Any Ameri can citizen regardless of face, political affiliation or religious creed, may become a member ot the Vindicators. There is no initiation fee, nor are there any dues. I am of the opinion that those who have bitterly condemned this movement have done so without having learned the facts. If there are any opponents to the above program I would appreciate their advising me of their objections, and I would likewise appreciate those in sympathy with the program writing me so that I may have the benefit of their cooperation and encouragement. Those endorsing this movement are striving to glorify Americanism and patriotism. We are endeavor ing to arouse the American people to the realization of the dangers of these foreign “isms,” Communism, Nazism and Fascism, that now in fest our country and threaten to undermine the foundation of on: Republic. The time has arrived when we must rekindle the flame of true American democracy—when ; we must rally and unite to pre- 1 serve and strengthen the ideals, 1 the doctrines and the institutions that have made our nation the worlds greatest citadel of freedom and liberty. I do not conceive how any real American would object to these principles and objectives. With the interest of all Americans in mind we have adopted the ! slogan, “OUR CITIZENS, OUR I COUNTRY, FIRST.” Respectfully yours, Robert R. Reynolds, U. S. S. you may find a monument to some one who fought in the Civil \\ ar. Each generation is taught to re member and to resent. Inscriptions on monuments sometimes read “Lest We Forget.” They would rather remember. That means for the North in general, however, and not for any individual person who happens to come this way. The people are friendly. You must not be in a hurry when you talk to them, for they have all of the time in the world.' Their drawl is soft and low. They gather in groups and talk in pleasant tones. Perhaps you will not understand what they are say ing, but it really does not matter. Nobody seems to care. The West is more modern. We think of oxen as primitive and to be found only in partly civilized countries, yet here in Alabama we see them creeping a'ong modern concrete highways, oblivious to the whizzing automobiles and to the march of time. People in the South are poor. There still remain a few of the old southern plantations, but they are not representative of the South as it is today. Those o’d planta tions exist much more in song and fancy than in fact. Most of the farms are small. The houses would not stand the rigors of a northern winter. The clothes would not turn a biting wind. But the South is not cold. It is mid winter and the fruit trees are blooming. The grass is green on the hillsides. People are out in the sunshine in their shirt sleeves. Nobody is in a hurry. No body seems to be cold or hungry. I think I could like the Deep South very much —If I had never seen the Southwest. THU CUOUUUR HXAMINKK NATIONAL DEFENSE CONTEST Gloria Appel, and Bth grade pupil won the local American Legion Na tional defense contest in the 7th and Bth grades at the Coolidgo Grammar School. Francelle Julian placed second and those receiving honorable mention were: Richard Ware, 7th grade; Betty June Mc- Euen, Bth grade; Teresa Akers, 7th grade; and June Runbeck, 7th grade. The awards will be given at the end of school along with the rest of the awards to be made. Mis» Appel’s essay will be sent to the National Headquarters to compete for the national prizes of SIOO and SSO respectively. WHY A STRONG NATIONAL DE FENSE IS ESSENTIAL TO PEACE On April 6, 1917 the United States declared war on Germany and not until over a year afterward in May 1918 did American Armies take part in any major battle. This period be tween April, 1916 and May 1917 was a period of preparation. We were not prepared for war and within a short period of time the United States was turned into a war factory. When we think of war we must not only think of the tragedies that occur on the battlefields but of the people at home. We must remember the sacrifices they are making. For instance, during the World War to j allow for food for the armies in France, we here were allotted a certain amount of sugar, flour and so forth per person per month. The red Cross asked for donations of money or labor from the individual. Women and girls met once a w r eek at a designated time and place and under the supervision of a Red Cross official or nurse. They rolled bandages, sewed, and made knitted garments to send to the soldiers overseas. Due to the scarcity of employees production was lessened but the demand was greater; there fore each home became a factory where knitted goods such as wash cloths, mittens, socks, pilots’ hel mets, mufflers, and sweaters were made in the housewife’s spare time. Had we been prepared such ex tremeties would not have been necessary. In this western hemisphere we have a rich diversity of resources and a respectful peaceful people functioning together under an ideal i of democratic government. These people must be protected because the wor’d has grown so small and weapons of attack so swift that no nation can be safe in its will to J 1 peace as long as any other single j powerful nation refuses to settle its grievances peacefully. With our defense, that is, our armies and navies, fully equipped we can have that protection. Pres. Roosevelt has asked Congress for a little over one half million dol lars to build up our national de ! sense. In the defense plan 9 450 i million dollars has been set aside for the army. Os this amount 300 mflMon dollars will be used for air craft. It has been estimated that only 170 million dollars will be used for airplanes. Some of the reasons for spending so much of the Armies apportionment for air defenses are: 1. An air force must include planes, combat and maintenance crews and air bases. 2. Like the Navy, it must be in existence when an emergency arises, being the first to see action. Production capacity applies only to replacements. 3. Even a defensive force must include many bombing planes capable of crippling the enemy bases. 4. The Munich conference show ed air forces are powerful voices at the peace talks. It has been estimated that Ameri can aircraft industry could more than triple its present output of airplanes to 12,000 planes in three years, a production figure, which Germany has already attained. Other projected expenditures will Include: 62 million dollars for con struction at existing air stations and establishment of air- bases in Alaska, Puerto Rico, New Hemp shire, and Florida, 33 mil.ion dol lars to add 2,200 officers and 25,000 enlisted men to the air corps pres ent personnel. The increase in en listed strength would include 1,200 flying cadets. Sacaton Teacher Dies After Short Illness Mrs. Gladys Whitaker Morago. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Whitaker, teacher in the Saca ton Indian School, died in the Sacaton Indian hospital at 2.30 Sunday morning. She had been ill one week. She was 21 years of age. Os the 450 million dollars ser 1 aside for the army 110 million will be used for equipment such as anti-aircraft guns, tanks, and ammunition. 32 million dollars will be Invested j in special orders from certain ' factories, such as c'othing. food, and other such war materials. 8 million dollars will be used to improve army coast defenses in Panama, Hawaii, and the United States. The Navy has been allotted $65,- 000,000 of which $21,000,000 will be used for navy planes. 44,000,000 will be used to strengthen naval bases in outlying possessions including Guam, Hawaii and others. The de fense program would almost double our present fleet of army and navy planes. In defense of the plans for two fleets, a Pacific fleet and an Atlantic fleet it absolutely sound and practical in every way. Without; an Atlantic fleet in case of an j enemy attack of the Pacific fleet j would be compelled to patrol the j Atlantic seaboard thus weakening! the Pacific coaet defenses and not | adequately protecting either coast, i An al’ocation of $10,000,000 has ! been made for the purpose of train ing 20,000 citizens as air pilots. It is better to prepare soldiers ir< leisure and prepare them well, than in haste and poorly. At the entry of the United States into the World War soldiers were trained I in such haste they were not give’ ; time to realize what they wen getting into. The least we could do is give our future cannon fodder a chance to know what they are fac ing. That is why $10,000,000 has been set aside for training pur- j poses. A hastily trained man is not an efficiently trained man. Twenty million dollars will be used for strengthening the forces protecting the Panama canal in cluding housing for the increased personn el. The reason for strengthening the forces in the j Panama Canal zone is obvious. The forces that are stationed at the I Canal are not sufficient to protect the canal should we engage in armed conflict. Since the Canal connects the Atlantic seaboard with the Pacific coast the enemy woub be sure to strike at such a vita spot.

If another form of government can present a united front in its attack on de mocracy, the attack must be met j by a united democracy, or witness the fate of Spain. If the people of this country feel secure there will be no internal strife. What would happen if this country would fall under the rule of a dictator? Dictatorship involves cost which the American will never pay—the blessed right of being able to say or do as we please. By that I mean freedom of spech, press, and religion. Under a dictator’s rule our youth would be cast into concen tration camps and our capital con fiscated. With an adequate nation al defense we need not fear an aggressor nation. The people of the U. S. should be thankful that a national de -1 sense program is being sponsored | to protect them and posterity in j stead of feeling that a national I war. | defense program is an advocate to H■ A ■ Own ltom&lliajhitf- IMSAAIDAMOATIIIA A .A, .

After all, Eun >e borrowed from the United Stales an enormous sum of money to car y on the World War which the financiers of this country did not resent. Why shouldn’t we use all available money to our own ad vantage in the form of internal solidarity and strong national de fense. Prepardness for any and all evil is the basis of true patriotism. Arming for protection does not mean we are to become an aggres sor nation. Had England been pre pared the Munich agreement would not have been necessary and the dismemberment of Czechoslavakia could have been avoided. If other nations know that the United States is prepared for war they will hesitate to encroach on her territory. GLORIA APPEL, Bth grade pups.
