A man is obliged to the natural law of which this is a violation and no one can do this with impunity. "It is .bad enough to see a nation's sons depleted by war, but it Is much more melancholy to contemplate a nation voluntarily destroying its awn progeny.. admire Col. Roosevelt very 'much for his stand for the abolition of race suicide, along with some of his other principles. I compare race suicide to the murder of the innocents, perpe- trated by ''King Hero'd."
