All Jaycee club presidents, state officers and William Shepherd of Pine Bluff, whom the local 1 convention has endorsed for national Jaycee president, were introduced by W. T. "Whoopie" Stover, of Morrilton, state president, before he presented Dr. Ellis. Mr. Shepherd in a brief talk announced plans for going to Dyersburg this afternoon to attend the Tennessee state convention before going to Kentucky for another. Dr. Ellis said that totalitarianism can teach this country some lessons perhaps in organization and discipline but its unity is based on mass emotionalism, supported by fear which can't endure while there is idealism that motivates loyalty' and enthusiastic zeal. There are already signs that it is*running its course, in Italy and Germany, the speaker stated. Americans have within their heritage a basis of a loyal citizenship, which should inspire its people to total effort if they but realize the issues at stake. There are people who are foolish enough to say that this country doesn't have the four freedoms— freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, freedom from fear. "To be sure," Dr. Ellis said, "we do not have them. Democracy can not be defined as an actual realization already here sight of the long-range horizon. About 15 per cent of the national organization's membership is now in active war service, he revealed, and urged that ranks of the nation's clubs be maintained at full strength for performance of essential services. Places Responsibility Quoting Thomas Paine, Mr. Timmerman said, "These are the times that try men's souls," and emphasized that men of the Jaycee age group accept major responsibility for winning the war and rehabilitating the world when peace comes. He voiced optimism in referring to post-war economics which he described as presenting an opportunity for America to ascend to its "place in the sun" as the leading world power. "This war is the precursor of an entirely new era. the prospective features and characteristics of which are beyond the range of experience and knowledge," he predicted, telling the delegates that the past prosperity has been largely of domestic origin while in the future it will stem from trade and industry on a world-wide scale. Sees World Business A victorious peace, he said, will mean not exploitation of other nations, but constructive development of other nations with American capital and initiative—development vhich will raise living standards hroughout the world which will in urn raise American living stand- irds, increase business volumes and Among the fighting forces were one complete United States infantry regiment, the 31st, one Filipino scout cavalry and two Fillplfio scout infantry regiments and other battalions and units of tank forces and anti-aircraft, engineering, mexlical, signal, interceptor and transport units. There were also save*.*!-thousand combatant "and supply units of the Philippine army. The communique was made public 'during Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson's press conference.
