The vote he cast may lessen the distaste of many of his constituents for the Reynolds' stand on national policy, but we v doubt whether it will answer the questions of those who think he is the wrong man for the chairmanship of the Senate's Military Affairs committee. Reynolds is miscast in that role. We need direction of legislation to be in the hands of chairmen •guiltless of the folly of obstructing the program of this nation as ti sought to prepare itself for what now obviously is ahead of -it.

There is a God! The sky His presence shares. His hand upheaves the billows in their mirth, destroys the mighty, yet the humble spares. —Charlotte Cushman. WE SHOULD DECLARE WAR ON GERMANY T HE UNITED STATES should declare war today on Germany. .NO DISCOUNTING THE EXTENT OF DISASTER We would not minimize the disaster that the naval and air successes of the Japanese constitute. The sinking today of two great British warships, including the battleship Prince of Wales we regard as a greater blow to the democratic cause than would be the capture of Manila. The Japanese have struck"* hard and effectively at the naval power of the Allies upon which they must depend for anything like a quick decision against the foe. In sinking the British ships, the Japanese have inspired the speculation that they have an aerial torpedo or bomb of tremendous destructiveness. They have done what Germany failed to do in sinking a first-line battleship from the air. These disasters point the President's warning of last night that tion to hemispheric solidarity. We fail to see how, there can be solidarity with Argentina doing business with Japan. The Danville (Va.) Register says: "There was reassurance for every American who felt the need for it in the address of the President Roosevelt last night. . . . Americans are a sturdy people. Now is the time to show our sturdiness by not permitting anything, good or bad, to interrupt our appointed tasks. Such a course will enable us to make good the President's promise." Yes, the President's promise of victory was predicated on his confidence in the American people rather than on material equipment for war. And, if we are true to the traditions of our fathers who forced, "heart and nerve and sinew" to serve their turn on many hard-fought fields, that liberty might not perish from the earth, we shall not fail that confidence. DALE CARNEGIE r — I like to carry with me and read, whenever I can, snatches from an amazing book. The book is 240 years old, but is as alive today as when the goosequill first wrote it. That book is the dairy of Samuel Pepys. (By the way, his name is pronounced Peeps.) In this book Samuel Pepys tells about going to Tower Hill in London to see a man's head chopped off. It was a sort of holiday and people came from near and far to see the execution. Before the knife was to do its grim work, the man was allowed to make a speech. In the speech he made a profession of his religious faith and, The Only Coarse—The Only Outcome by in talked
