A Negro choir Last week a SNEAK PUNCH was started in. our Legislature by those sponsoring the scheme or resolution titled "The Declaration of the Federation of the World" who would have us believe it is rather harmless and only intended to sort of call a little pink tea session with responsible heads of the countries of the world if, and where they can be found to talk peace.

This notwithstanding the fact we are in the midst of a war for survival. It is also claimed this scheme has nothing to do with "Federal Union" yet the State Chairman of both groups is one and the same man as is a goodly portion of the committees. Further, World Federation does "That there be selected a territory for the seat of government for the Federation of the World and that the nation in which the said territory is located be requested to withdraw its jurisdiction over this area and cede it to the Federation of the World for its Capital, with all the prerogatives and attributes of sovereignty." Only one conclusion can be arrived at, and that is, the Federation of the World scheme is the vehicle used to ride Federal Union into being. A scheme condemned by thinking Americans as idealistic, fantastic, disregard-ful of realities and actualities and detrimental to the "best interests of the people of the United States for the reason: It would involve the United States becoming an integral part of a world government, or super-state, without right of secession therefrom, and would require the United States to surrender to such world government, or super-state, many essential and fundamental sovereign powers, including (for example) the right to coin money, the right to confer citizenship, 'the right to maintain a defense force, Jie right to make war and peace, and the right 'to impose tariffs; and for the foregoing and other reasons, said proposal would involve fundamental changes in the basic structure of our Gov The school is snnnsnred hv th Jm St- James M.

Church, of Mrs. A. D. Chambers and Mrs ically impossible. Under this super state government it wou'd be possible to transport hundreds of thousands of workers from other parts of the world to any part of our country; there would be no immigration laws and the would have the same rights as any of us, a common citizenship.

You know what this would do. It is time that we find out in this country who and what is American here and now and that we do away with such rainbow chasing. We have enjoyed a form of government in the last 150 odd years that we believe is the best in the world and there is nothing wrong with our form of government today. We are perfectly capable of going through this war and winning it. We are equally capable of salvaging and rebuilding a strong and a free Nation that will be a credit to the founding fathers and a lasting blessing to posterity.

This, the advocates of World Federation say cannot be done. What say you? After this war is won let our friends of the United Nations use their resources and rebuild their respective countries as they see fit and let us alone to work out our own salvation. When our men come back from this war having successfully destroyed Hitler's world order there will not be another world order set up waiting for them. Let ua destroy any and all such movements as this proposer" World Federation. We shall always be willing to live in peace harmony with our neighbors with what we, as American citizens, believe to be the necessary treaties or alliances.

We will never scrap our Declaratiou of Independence for a Declaration of Inter-Dependence thereby losing that which, to an American, is more precious than life itself. It shall always be "My Country, 'tis of thee, of thee I sing." The Glory put in Old Glory by our forefathers shall always stay there. There shall nevsr be any other flag but the AMERICAN flag for us.

Eugene B. Lewis, Commander groups among those who are advocating World Federation not held out their bleeding hearts in holy horror years ago at the thought, of an adequate armed force that would have kept us out of war if anything could. Higher taxes yes. We saved the money then, but we're losing lives now. How much better, if during all these years, the peoples of the earth had had installed in their hearts the love and understanding of Christ.

Where, and whose was the failure and what is the remedy? The answer may very well be a better solution than piling more laws upon laws more government upon government. Americans let us get our feet firmly planted in the good It has taken 150 years to develop a particular breed of Americans in this country who are willing to turn over sovereign powers of our government to another. Let us serve notice NOW we will have none of it, that we will never accept, as is proposed: 1. A Union Citizenship. We would no longer retain our American Citizenship as such.

2. A Union money giving up our American money for that of some sort of money yet to be created. 3. A Union customs free economy. This would completely tear down every safeguard the American working man has and the lowering of our living standard to that of the rest of the world.

4. A Union postal and communications system. This would give control to the super sta it our postoffices, radio and press, and they tell us that under a World Federation government we would go along with a song of sp ing in our hearts and nothing would materially change in our country. 5. A Union defense force.

This world government would have the right to conscript your son and the sons of your neighbors and friends to wage war or as they might term it to police the world, wherein lies the difference? Does this sound as though they believe there is to be no more shooting? Any sensible person knows that due to the differences of education and habit it cannot be expected all peoples will think alike, it is philosoph Weldin, members of the club. Mrs. ideological "inter-dependence. Agitation at this time for the adoption of such a proposal is dangerous and would tend to burden, instead of furthering, the war effort, in that it would result in diverting the attention of the American people, as well as the peoples of the other countries concerned, from the primary task of winning the w-ar; would tend to a shifting and neglect of responsibilities, and to the creation of dangerous divisions among the people. The Brookings Institution of Washington, D.

well known to all as an impartial non-partisan and independent organization in its book Titled "Peace Plans and American Choices," just off the press, has this to say regarding a World State or World Federation: "Furthermore, we feel that the discussion of world order should not concern itself with programs that clearly have no chance of being accepted by governments or peoples within the postwar period. Appraising popular attitudes and trends, many believe that, to be acceptable, the coming arrangements must be extremely modest. The writer thinks that the American people at the end of this struggle, if they have had courageous, intelligent, and inspiring leadership, will be prepared to go to considerable lengths in order to prevent a repetition of our two recent experiences with modern war. Nevertheless, we do not consider practical the idea of a world-state or world-federation. It is difficult to see how, unless a miracle should happen, this age-old drear" can be realized at the end of the present war." While it is agreed any enjoying American citizenship rights can peacefully work for a change in our constitution, yet it is unthinkable that any would have the unmitigated gall to ask we subordinate OUR GOVERN-ERNMENT AND FLAG TO THAT OF ANOTHER.
