THE point has been reached where war is waged by.:

our rights, of making sure that, as a Nation, we shall b*:
to live the sort of life and to have the sort of institution

guarding the world against the recurrence of such a wa.r a
To accomplish this the Nation must aim at the perfec~i
organization, and therefore each individual must recog.i,
necessity of making sacrifices for the common good .ad13

Our people have a genius for organization, and they :
fail in the task they have assumed. Our farmers, an ..
great responsibility rests, are the most efficient farmers
world when they do their best. They will not be fod 'i
