S N K I G H 0 R S ETTE HOME EDITION MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY OCTOBER 20 1152 One Mans Opinion A Radio By W EARL HALL Managing Editor These Things I Do Believe QF all the gloomy views I ever expressed the worst and most melancholy is this one Man is a fighting animal The corollary to that dismal point of view is that wars are There always have been wars there always will be wars How many times have you heard that one And how many times have you heard the Biblical passage about wars and rumors of wars cited as complete andfinal author ity for the fatalistic prospect Nearly All Soft C Fanatical Commies Take One Peak in Korean War Battle ul Two Strik Its about this general subject that I want to visit with you today And Ill begin by saying that set man down as a fighting ani mal is to tell a monstrous lie It just isnt so The truth is that man is a peaceloving creature of God And the logical corollary to that premise is that wars arenot in evitable Putting the Bible on the side of foreordination and inevitabil ity is a reminder that Satan him self could fay straining sufficiently for it find justification in the Scriptures for most of his activi ties Those who lean on the wars and rumors of wars passage con veniently bypass scores of Scrip tural passages presaging peace All Faiths Teach Peace At its heart the and the Faiths based upon it is a promoter of peace not warAnd in fairness it must be acknowledged that this is true of all great religions which have served as a guide for mans behavior down through the cen turies Wars have come when the selfishness of men usually a limited few prevailed against the teachings of Christi anity and other great faiths In my wanderings r about the earth I havejSyet one hu woman boy or wanted to go out upon the fieldof battle

Americans on Triangle an the Chinese on Pikes Peak trade to go on doubting that musty old cliche Man is a fighting animal are inevitable Its true that there have always been wars and rumors of wars Butthis fact in no way stems from an instinct in the human animal to do battle Rather it bottoms on the failure up to this time to make mankinds passion for peace all but universal prevail over the sel fishness of a limited few in a po sition to precipitate a war A FormulaIs Known A formula for curbing those troublemakers has been found and applied at the local level Through out most of the world but in America particularly a system of law and order has been brought into being Its only at the inter national level that anarchy seems to perpetuate itself This formula for promoting peace and tranquility among men and women at the local level involves three vastly important but easyto understand requisites 1 An intelligently drawn code of laws 2 A court system for interpret ing and applying that code 3 An agency for enforcing the decisions of the courts Let nobody assume that this is a formula hastily arrived at It was hammered out tediously and pain fully on the anvil of time It had application first in the family per haps the Stone Age family Then it was extended to the tribe or clan then to the state and nation Always the boundary lines have been pushing out The American Illustration Its all been a part of mans in itinctive yearning for the content ment and wellbeing which comes through an assurance of security for his person and his property By placing his trust in a fair and en forceable system of law and or der he has moved ever nearer to his goals and objectives Almost within the memory of persons now living there has been in our own country a graphic il lustration of this collective se curity idea In the beginnings of our pioneer midwestern civiliza tion strong men had to rely on their firearms to protect them sporadic rifle fire during the day but
