Through the columns of our daily newspapers, on the pages of our national magazines, out of the loud speakers of'our radios, from the public platform, our eyes and ears are filled with complaints denouncing the wholesale distribution to the youth of our country of the propaganda of international hostilities. And yet what efforts are we making to overcome this evil influence? The future of America is flanging in the balance and depends upon the answer we can give to this question. In Flanders Field. A few years ago a prominent man in. our city had a miniature reproduction of Flanders Fields set on a lot adjoining his place of business. It attracted much attention and many were the conjectures that it aroused. As one viewed the rows of crosses that represented the final resting place of those who gave their lives for this fair country of ours and admired the poppies that paid their silent tribute of love to our honored dead, and then turned his gaze to the solitary boy scout doing sentry duty, he seemed to hear the mute appeal: "To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high! If ye break faith with us who die. We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields." And then as the attention was again riveted on the lone sentinel, all misgivings disappeared--the organization of youth is the solution to the problem. The peace movement in its fullest effectiveness must he a youth movement. Appeal to Youth. The powers that want armed conflict are appealing to the idealism and courage of youth. Fidac. whose sole ambition is to safeguard our nation, has sent forth this clarion call to our American youth, to muster to the cause--to keep the communist, the pagan, the atheist, the infidel from ruling the minds and hearts of the boys and girls of America. In the battle against the forces of evil, there can be no compromise. The first and best means to further the cause is education, for it enables one to evaluate at its YOU CAN MAKE YOUR HOME A MODEL HOME And We'll Help You Do It!

If the spread of insidious propaganda is to be checked, it is necessary to know the facts back of and pertaining to these whisperings and misrepresentations; to have a better understanding of human nature, a clearer insight into the weaknesses, the hopes, and the ambitions of ourselves and our fellowmen. Human nature admits no Utopia. Love of God. regard for each other, and respect for law, order, and au- Ihorily, best inculcated through the school, will make our youth a mighty force for good. Propaganda Dangers. At present, the future welfare of America--the peace of the whole world, indeed--is being seriously endangered by propaganda of international hostilities. To prevent this, it is necessary for our American youth before trying to solve international difficulties, to furnish themselves with a thorough knowledge and understanding of their own national, economic, and social problems, in order that they may determine which of these problems are American problems and also that they may be a.ble to recognize propaganda which might prove detrimental to the peace of America. It is Important, too, that they develop a keen sense of justice, for it is essential that fair play be exercised in all dealings with all nations. They will then cast off the old feeling of intense nationalism, and in its stead place an internationalism that embraces all. This spirit of friendship, comradeship, and brotherhood will promote good fellowship and will eventually eliminate hostile propaganda. But peace destroying propaganda cannot be prevented by closing our shores to all foreign intercourse. Japan tried to be a. hermit kingdom, but the American Commodore Perry in 1853, showed her the futility' of such a.n isolation. If Japan could not be a hermit in 1853, the United States cannot expect to reestablish such a plan in progressive 1936. Yet friendly and commercial intercourse with our neighbors across the seas need not permit the propaganda of communism or any ism to have free access to our homes. Definite measures must be adopted to prevent the spreading of thia fallacy. The boycott of harmful, reading matter is one means at the disposal of youth that is most effective. If this pernicious literature were nnt in demand, its circulation would cease. Exclude Isms. Youth, too, could accomplish much if they would exclude from their own lives all the ideas and principles of dictatorship and of Such items as communish, fascism, nationalism, militarism, materialism, absolutism, socialism, collectivism, capitalism, individualism, and egoism, and develop in themselves a little more Christian charity and a little more good will so necessary for peace, and firmly establish in their own hearts the kingdom of God and His justice. Youth, then, can co-operate with Fidac to prevent propaganda of international hostilities by making the fullest use of all their talents and opportunities, and by living good Christian lives. Marshal Foch said, "We shall have peace only on the same conditions that we got war. We must fight for it in the moral order as we fought for it in the physical order; fight for it on our knees as we fought for it in the trenches, in the air, and on the sea."
