Signs of the Times

[From the Frederick Leader, Oklahoma]

There will be many expressions made this Armistice Day, as on others, as to how we may best show our devotion to the men who so fully gave themselves for our cause in the world war. We shall miss ... the underlying cause of the sacrifices that our soldiers made, if we fail to recognize that the greatest service we can do them, the highest degree of appreciation we can show, will be to take up the torch ... and strive again to kindle in the hearts of our own people and of the world an abiding sense of universal brotherhood, as the only sure and lasting basis of peace.

Let us remember that we entered the war to put an end to wars, through the spread of democracy—or government by the people; to establish peace through the overthrow of tyranny, the lust for territory, and racial and national hatreds.
