And when a man is nungry, ne gets angry. Any man is angry and unprincipled when he fights for his bare wants. America could solve this problem if she wanted to. When our intelligent thinking men and women become concerned, our prob lems will be solved infinitely better than they are today. America would gladly feed the whole world if she were able. "The struggle in American life to day is one for fundamental princi ple. Only as we get back to funda mental principle in our national life can our nation get back to its real power. There is something wrong when with all the wealth there is in this country the serpent poverty is allowed to trail its slimy form across our thresholds, ignorance is permitted to exist, and vice is allowed to go on And everything is wrong when intel ligent men and women are unconcern ed and do not care. "The time is rapidly approaching when intelligence and magnanimity will mean nothing compared with prin ciple. Some day there will be a great crisis in which only one thing prin ciple will count. This means that when the American people fully under stand the facts, and are concerned, that no one will be allowed to suffer. There are ten millions of people in this country alone who are in want of food and clothing today. And we who have our three square meals a day and all the clothes we need to keep us warm do not think about them. We do not care. But if some of our dear ones were in dire need, then would we care?"
