   Racine Times Bulletin (Newspaper) - September 17, 1939, Racine, Wisconsin                                it Reading a Columnists Mail SUNDAY JOURNAL TIMES BULLETIN -With  Ttx RtfnoUs- "Mind Our Own Businets." Dear Tex: I heard your radio broadcast the other night in which you paid sentiment toward the war had changed among many citizens of Racine during the last two or three weeks. I agree that there are more people today who seem resigned to the idea that this country must get into the war eventually, on the side of Britain and France. But I am one of those who still believes it's a lot of bunlc to talk about the need for "helping to save democracy against dictatorship." Look what it cost us to "help save democracy" once before, and look what happened- democracy suffered its greatest blow a.� result of the World war! I believe in democracy, I am a natuial born American, u.sed to my personal liberty. So 1 hate the thought of dictatorship. But I say the best way to save democracy is to remain at home and mind our own business. Atlev the war, no matter who �win.s, this country will be the last real bulwark of democracy in the world. That is, it will be if we .staj- out of war. If we get in, then democracy is surely gone. Why? Let me e.xplain. We'd have a form of dictatorship here during the war. Then after the war would come a depression. And our democratic form of government never would hold together in the face of such a blow. I repeat, by all means let u.= .>:lay at home and mind our own busine.ss. -L. A. W., Main street. � * � Matter of Money. Hear Te.\: I think perhaps the Racine Insurance association has a good idea. I mean the idea that bright-colored clothes �will help to protect children on the streets, especially at dusk or on dark, ffggy, rainy days. But there is one little detail that bothers me - what'll I use for money to buy such ciofhe.
