AN ENTHUSIASTIC WORKER
Ameng the many enthusiastic work-
er for the Red Cross none will be
found more earnest in their work than
J. 0 Judd and there's a reason. Mr.
Judd had four brothers who died dur-
ing the Civil War following the Battle
of the Wilderness purely from lack of
proper attention to their wounds. He
(eels that he oannot do too much for
the Red Cross to save our Americas
boys from such a fate in France.

FROM OKLAHOMA STARE COUNCIL OF DEFENSE
Is It Treason?
Here and there in Oklahoma are
those still who mnlntaln secretly that
American young men are being Bent to
the trenches of France at the call of
American dollars that the draft is but
the beginning of oppression of the
poor man by n military machine that
the Liberty Loan was a scheme by
which moneyed interests of the county
worked to obtain the poor man's coin
that this is a useless war a fight that
was none of our affair.
The fact that the women and chil-
dren of Belgium are starving under or-
ders from the Prussian government
has no effect on this man's attitude
nor the fact that nothing but bleach
ed bones remain to tell the tale of the
murder of women and children In Po-
land. "I wouldn't mind fighting if we
were invaded" he argues "but I don't
want to go to war with the enemy three
thousand miles away "
Must this man's own wife or daugh-
ter be outraged before he will realize
the menace ofthe Prussian advance?
Must the children of his own neighbors
be starved the old men in his' own
home town be killed in cold blood
.their homes pillaged and their fields
laid waste? " ' - . .
Must h'e see It with his own eyes be-
fore he realizes that with a turning
point in the struggle less unexpected
than have taken place in the past
Germany can have an invading force on
American soil In less than two months?
That if by any turn in events Prussia
should gain command of the seas
through her submarines von Ilinden
beriroould land soldiers in the United
States faster than we could train our
America is not sfe a tree people are
not safe nor homes nor women nor
children so long as a Prussian auto-
cracy holds the balance of the world's
military power. Our men can Bhoul-
der the struggle now and keep the bat-
tlefields on European soil or he can
wait a few months or a few years ns
chance may determine and fight the
battle of Arras on American soil In
the latter case it will be his own home
and the homes of his neighbors that
Prussian soldiers lay waste.
American dollars had no part in
bringing on this war. The draft is
above all the poor man's friend it
take poor and rich side by side. The
Liberty Loan marked the beginning of
a new era in America more than ever
before the farmer and the laborer and
the clerk have a part in national af-
fairs. And above all else this is Amer-
ica's war the fight of 'Our Man" and
of his neighbors. It is a fight for self-
preservation. America is In the fight to stay to
win. America will make free govern-
ment and free peoples and tree homes
safe in the Western hemisphere by
making them safe throughout the
world- j lt
"OurJHao.tbe one it who itii bolds
back from giving his whole hearted
support to the government will have
no effect on the efficiency of the Amer-
ican army directly. But his attitude
does retard the efforts of those who are
attempting to "prepare a nation for
war." He is prolonging the struggle
just a little longer. He will be reipoc
sible for the death of a few more of the
boys of his neighborhood War taxes
will be made just a little higher. Tbe
Prussian war loro will be givenjust a
little more comfort.
