Patriotism is love of country. If
we won't fight for it, we don't love
it, and if we don't love it, we won't
fight for it.
I believe it to be our duty to pro-
vide a permanent system of universal
military training for the youth of our
country. It will stimulate the people

Military training will teach the
young man in all stations that govern-

something is to be had, but an insti-

It iS a truly democratic ideal that
every young man should prepare him-
self to a reasonable degree of effi-
ciency to defend his country. Section-
al feeling will gradually disappear
before an ideal founded on service to
the state by citizens of every locality.
Only through service in a common
cause may we hope to unite the wide-

When the sons of the wealthy, the
sons of the laborer, the sons of the
poor and the sons of the immigrants,
live together, train together and
serve their country together, only
then and not before will we become a,

The establishment of obligatory
military training for all our young9

patriotism that will fuse the varying
