Colonel Abrams said that the
greatest danger to the nation lies
with those who would spread the
propaganda that it is wicked to
engage in warfare against - any
country for any cause. He pointed

today who look with covetous
greed toward America and who
would be glad to take advantage

that stands between America and
the greed of aggressive nations,
continued the speaker, who then
proceeded to explain how that act
, operates. In concluding his re
marks Colonel Abrams made
strong plea for true preparedness.
"Let us not forget the past as a
lesson for the future," he urged
"Let us strive to make the pac
