WE DID WHAT WE COULD
When Springfield was as
signed the task of raising $4000
for the Red Cross we heard
many expressions that this sum
was away out of proportion to
what was assigned many other
communities, but notwlthstand
ing this fact our citizens takled
the task in the spirit of patrio
tiipi and raised about $3,600.
This is a splendid showing and
Prof. Kirk, chairman of the gen
eral committee and all persons
who so ably assisted in the work
are to be commended' for their
gajan tfforts in behalf of this
The Red Cross is a most im
portant auxiliary to the great
plln'in the cpriquest this nation
has' undertaken to establish hu
m!ct freedom and worldwide lib
erty of mankind.
The wn6le world is looking
to tne United States to solve
th(e problem of world peace and
this Is the only nation that can
do it While it may seem like
a herculean task this nation is
more nearly equal to the emer
gency than any other and the
future history will shine resplen
dent with the accomplishment
of America in that direction. To
win world peace every possible
agency in this country must be
brought into requisition and no
factor will be more efficient in
that direction than the work of
the Red Cross. The Red Cross
is the conserving factor in the
fighting forces of the nation.
The old world has long since
learned this to be a fact hence
the millions in France, England
Russia, Japan and Germany
that have belonged to the organ
ization both in times of peace
and war. Japan has a million
and a half members in the or
ganization while here in the U
nited States with its 100,000,000
population our membership here
to fore, has been less than 300,
000. What we need to learn as a
people right now is that we are
facing the days of individual
sacrifice in order to carry for
ward the principles of good gov
ernment and human liberty.
What is life without liberty the
broad liberty that grants equal
rights to all and not to the few!
The hour has come when we
realize as never before that we
are our brother's keeper; that
our dollars our sympathy, our
support, aid and comfort, must
go out to others. We are get
ting our needed lesson in the
great world-betterment move
ment and the uplift of nations.
However we may deprecate the
horrors of war the horrors of
war in all of their terrifying and
disheartening ramifications are
with us and which nothing short
of an apparently endless flow
of human blood, appalling des
druction of property and spread
of desolation will satiate, yet,
out of this awful chaos comesthe
encouraging gleam of the great
and glorious future in which the
United States gives promise ot
bejng a bright and scintillating
The United States is fighting
not alone for the future of the
Syorld, but for its individual fu
ture for t'.c .encrati v.xc ll.at
are to follow. The blood of a
generation may be required to
accomplish a thousand years of
world peace and, universal pro
gross yet In the light of history
this may not be too great a
sacrifice if, perchance future gen
erations may carry the banner
of civilization to still greater
heights in world accomplish
ments. Time sacrifices one gen
eration for another. Few of
us live beyond the allotted time
As we reach the sundown of life
our chief ambition is for those
who follow us and take up Urn
duties and responsibilities where
we leave off. In this great war
that Is the way we should look
at the sacrifices we are called
upon to make in the behalf of
the Red Cross fund. It Is our
sacrifice for the generations to
follow and, more particularly for
our owh flesh and blood Unit
the way may be paved for their
greater freedom and liberty and
for their greater progress in the
art of civilization.
