TWO IRONWOOD OAIIY GtOBI, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2,-.965. Pastor Presents Inspiring Talk On Memorial Day WAKEPIELD — The Rev. Rudolph Kemppainen, who presented an inspiring address at the Memorial Day program Monday at Lakeview Cemetery, began by saying "While visiting in Finland, near the Russian border, I asked the Finnish people If they were not afraid to be so near Russia and they answered by pointing to their flag and saying "We are Free." Pastor Kemppainen continued that since we are in love with our flag, we too are free. He continued in part as follows: "There are three colors in the flag which bespeaks the cause of freedom. The red is the color of blood and sacrifice. Today It speaks of martyrs and freedom. We remember those who made the supreme sacrifice in Bataan, Corregidor. Iwo Jlma, Normandy and other battlefields. Just as the blood of martyrs Is seed of the church so the blood of the soldier has become the seed of freedom. But freedom is not granted for us to do as we please and they did not die that we might live as we please. To live as one pleases is license and not freedom, and not one life given in Iwo Jima and other battles, is worth such an idea of freedom. * * * "The white means purity. We have all heard of the concern to make America beautiful, and heard of the program to conserve and make the landscapes beautiful, but as important as that, is that we must make the soul of America beautiful. The heart of freedom is ethical and spiritual, and the Roman Empire fell because it lost sight of the purity of its soul. Our comrades died In order that we might live and freely do what in high honor we ought to do. When Khrushchev visited here and saw a Hollywood film he said it was morally decadent. What we fear most •bout Communism is their puri- tanism and their confid s n c e that they are morally superior to us. If we are to keep freedom, we must keep the soul of America morally pure. "Blue means truth and integrity. No civilization can live on A lie. The truth that we find in Ood and His son, Jesus Christ, is not about learning without effort and wages without work, which would bring us Into shipwreck. Man c a n n ot live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of Ood. 'The task of freedom is never over,' said the late President John F. Kennedy, 'it may take five years, or 100 years, or a 1,000 years, but let us begin.' Our comrades have labored for freedom and as we decorate their graves today let us enter their labor to keep the freedom and to keep the peace." * * * The events of the day began with a parade which was formed at the Cloon Motor Company, at 9:30 a..m. The city police, and officer of the day, chief of Police Dominic Valesano, led the parade, followed by the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, color guards, and firing squad These were followed by several cars carrying Gold Star Mothers, the speakers of the day, Presidents Mrs. Margaret Kaerw e r and Mrs. Jean Korpi of t h e American Legion and Auxiliary, the girls baton corps, and the Wakefield High School Band led by the majorettes, under the direction of Mrs. Phyllis Schlecht.
