Don't Surrender Your Rights!
OUR forefathers fought for their rights.
Many of them gave their lives that we
might enjoy freedom.
In the Declaration of Independence they
recorded those truths that have so safely
guided our democracy.
They have written that men are endowed
by their Creator with certain "unalienable"
rights, and "to secure these rights govern
ments are instituted among men."
And now thoso rights aro attacked. Tho School Mo
nopoly BUI (called on tho ballot Compulsory Education
Bill) proposes that wo surronder a God-given right-the
right of parental control-tho right of a parent to say In
what school his or her own child shall bo educated.
Maintain your right to control'your child through tho
education you feel it is right to give it Do not bo led astray
by fino phrases. Look into this dangerous bill You will
find tho vital principle of "unalienable" rights is at stako.
