rPH IS American did not fail thot rendez
vousand death did not pass him by.
When he died the world lost a true poet. His
death brings out in sharp relief how much one
soldier who is lost to us one man killed may
mean to the world. .
So let us keep our rendezvous at home our rendez
vous with life. Let us look into our lives, our households,'
and see that they are mobilized Tor war. Let us save
our money to save these men who daily Ijave rendezvous
with death. Let us keep our rendezvous with life and
help them to win through and to come bec'; to sunshine
and happiness and home with victory on; their banners.
