WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WARNS AGAINST ISMS IN U.S. Supreme Knight of K. C. Outlines 5 Crusade Principles EMMETSBURG--Members ol the Knights of Columbus lodge from North Iowa councils and chapters in surrounding states Tuesday heard the national head of the order, Supreme Knight Martin H. Carmody o£ Grand Rapids, Mich., outline the plan and the pressing reasons for the "Crusade for Ch'ristian Justice" which the society is now carrying on through its various councils. The supreme knight was guest of honor at a banquet in the Ker- more hotel, which also honored the visiting clergy and lodge officers. The speaker was introduced by State Deputy Lawrence D. Brennan of Emmetsburg. Speaking of the crusade being sponsored by the lodge which he heads, Mr.-Carmody said: Warns Against 'Isms . "While we. may all be deeply concerned with the communism and the other totalitarian forces that today plague Russia, Germany, Spain and Mexico, destroying as far as possible all knowledge of God, crushing the spirit and free will of man,- eliminating family ties and influence, destroying morality, decency, integrity and those homely virtues of thrift, frugality and honest toil, yet we are far more deeply con- c"erned that communism and the other isms which would destroy our institutions, our schools, churches and our democratic principles of government shall not obtain a firm, foothold in America." "It is your responsibility," he pointed out to his audience, "to prevent this happening here, and, so far as I'm concerned, the Knights of Columbus -will continue to apply the entire, united strength of its membership to see that it doesn't happen here. Condemns Marx, Stalin Mr. Carmody condemned what he called the "godless philosophies of Marx and Stalin." "The crusade of the Knights of Columbus to combat these destructive philosophies," he said, "will be continued with augmented zeal and devotion, but to this there must also be added the corrective principles of Christian charity and Christian justice. There must now be promoted in pur councils and impressed upon bur mefnbers the five important principles of our Crusade for Christian Justice. These call for ' devotion to God and sanctification of self, for knowledge of the truths a'nd the faith we profess, lor ~ action in - imparting those truths and that faith to others, lor unity in the great crisis we are facing that there may be no divided' counsel, and for strength in numbers, and more in spirit, that we may stand unyielding, a mighty force for God and country."
