Prof. Johnston
Urges School
'Unite People'
Greatest contribution which the
school can make to defense is the
development of unity of the people
within democracy to insure the pre-
servation of common ideals, Prof. Ed-
gar Johnson of the education school
maintained in the leading article of
the current issue of the School of
Education Bulletin.
Although the schools. have distinct
uespcnsibilities in each phase of na-
tional defense, the educator pointed
out, they can do the most good by
producing an unswerving devotion to
democratic institutions.
The schools must help to develop
an appreciative understanding of the
contributions of various cultures and
to create respect among them.
These contributions will add to the
strength of America since it gives to
the people of the United States a
sense of self-reliance and a justi-
fiable pride in their ancestry.
Teachers in Michigan have a spec-
ial cpportunity to take advantage of
this fact because its population in-
cludes representatives of various see-
tions of the United States and recent
immigration. The state also has an
appreciable number of Indian tribes.

Lindbergh Asserts Nation's
Arms Are Not Enough,
To Wage War'Abroad
ST. LOUIS. May 3.-UAP-)-Charles1
k. Lindbergh declared tonight Amer-
ca was not prepared to wage war
ibroad successfully, but pleaded thatj
we must defend our own nation.
He stressed particularly, in a speech
prepared for an America First Com-
mittee rally, what he said was our in-
adequacy in the air.
He said that no matter how many
planes we built and sent to England,
we could not make the British Isles
stronger than Germany in military
"Not only is the performance of
some of our vital, types of service
aircraft inadequate, but our total air
force in the United States today, in-
cluding both the Army and Navy,
both modern and obsolescent types,
is not more than Germany can pre-
pare in a few weeks," he said. "It is a
small fraction of her present airforce.
To enter a European war today with
our air force would be almost as great
a folly as that committed by France
when' she declared war on Germany
in 1939."
It was Lindbergh's first speech
since he resigned his Colonel's com-
mission in the Air Corps Reserve last
Monday. The resignation followed
President Roosevelt's press, conference
statement grouping Lindbergh with
appeasers of the Revolutionary War
and the copperheads of the Civil War.
Lindbergh referred to this early in
his talk. He said:
"I resigned because I felt that the
statements of the President left me no
honorable alternative. This situation
arose because L together with mil-

lions of Americans, believe that our
country should not enter the war in
Europe while the President, and many
with him, believe we should take part
in that war."
"This is the third great nation that
I have watched being led into warl
without adequate preparation and
without the true facts and issues of
the war being placed before the peo-
ple," he continued.t
"In England, in France and now in
my own country, I have listened to
politicians and idealists calling upon.
the people for war without hardly a
though of how that war is to be,
fought or won.
"I have seen France fall; I see
England falling, and now I see Amer-
ica being led into the same morass."
