12/

war is the direct outcome of the

preparedness for war which the

nations of Europe have practiced

for the past generation and

on the other hand that nothing

save preparedness will protect

our own country from a

fate like Belgium's. One person

says Americans should keep off

the high seas during the war

another that we should maintain

the rights of neutrals on the

ocean and should even

fight for them. Secretary

Garrison tells us that the most

effective way to protect our

country is by giving military

instruction in the public schools.

Our own state Supt. Keeler, and school teachers generally, deprecates

this suggestion as tending

toward the militaristic spirit.
