Night (See page 3) PRICE 5 CENTS Armistice Message The observance of Armistice Day while we are in the midst of a great war seems like a useless contradiction. But if our thoughts and actions can be directed this time towards making the end of this war, not an armistice extending for some twenty years, but a long-lasting peace, then we shall find real value in recalling that day of twenty-five years ago. We have grown rather cynical in our attitude towards peace. Many people have decided that peace of any duration is an impossible ideal. A year or two ago, at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the president stated: "The Unknown Soldier who lies here gave his life that his family, his neighbors, and all his fellow Americans might live in peace in the days to come. This hope was not fulfilled. Young lives are being sacrificed these days with that same hope in mind. Are we ready to say again that it has been all in vain? If our concern is merely with the mechanics of peace that will very probably be the case. We must build upon deeper foundations— the deep conviction that under God, this world is a unit, that we will stand or fall together, that only concern for the welfare of all of the "children of God" will be enough. The way of peace is the desire of God. Peace can come when enough people are willing to pay the price. It will come when the ways of peace have become firmly fixed within the hearts of enough men. The words of a great prophet of old continue to beckon us on. "God will judge between the nations . . . they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." Marcus J. Engelmann, President, Maywood Ministerial Association.
