Tlie> pii I riot ii- muss meeting licltl at
tlic Pope thcutei Siimluy afternoon
Was a most eloquent refutation of any
iiislunutlnii that patriotIsm is on the
Wane In McKinncy Tlir lower floor of
tho spacious house was will nihil. A
IuumcuI program of interest liail been
prepared for tho occasion. The Mc-
Kinney Miichunts' linml uiulcr the
ntile leadership of Director I1'. \V
Harrows gave some splendid selec-
tions. A t|Uiirtel composed of Arthur
l-lill. Mrs. Joe K. Ijirgenl, Mrs V. W.
Wallace and (Joo. T. Cobb sung
"America, Here's My Hoy." a so UK'
lull of pathetic sentiment shnxving the
ancrlltcc which mothers are being
called upon to make for tlie cause of
humanity. For an encore (hey sung
"Tho I ted. While and lllue ." Miss
Ruth Haininond played the uccom-
isn't confined to Kut'Opc. It Is In the
United States; it Is In Texas; it Is in
t olllli county; It Is in McKlnney; il is
win,n tin' breast of every American
who is worthy lo lie called such." He
said that unless we have the war at
heart and bend cver> energy toward
winning it we are unworthy of the
Who Is In the War?
The speaker made the Interesting
statement thai a man may lie in the
army and not in the war that there
an men In the army who are not loyal
lo tho cause and who are desirous of
seeing America go down in defeat. On
the other hand, he said, there are
those In the war who are not in the
army. His voice trembling with emo-
tion he told of the day when his son
| enlisted; how thai he, I he father, was
Mayor II A. Mitch an master of I heartbroken; how lie wrote lo the ud-
cerenioM ins iiuide a brie I explanatory j juhi nl-general asking if there was not
present some way a man of his ugc could serve
iii i he army; how iii! received a reply
stating that he was too old to serve
in the army, hut that even though he
on could not get in the unity he could
he ' nolo
address. He likened t h i
crisis to a ship which is being tossed
about, by a storm on the high sea and
puts into the tlrst port in order hi get
its hearings so that it might sail
ki its destination in safely. So.
said, must the great Ship of State get
Its bearings that she might ultimately
mil into Hie placid waters id' liberty,
prosperity and true Democracy, not
otilv to. the United States bill lor the
whole world He explained that to this
<>nd it had been decided to hold a pa
triotic muss meeting on each Sunday
afternoon He then introduced Dr. .1.
i i. Pierce, pastor of tho First Metho-
dist church of this city, who offered
the in. mutton.
Ill', ltu> -.peak-,
Mayor Finch then Introduced Dr.
Jeff D. Hay of the Southwestern liup-
tist Theological Seminary at Fort
Worth, a man who has won a name
for hlntself In this world crisis. Ills
reputation having preceded him, his
audience awaited his address with
anxious expectancy. They anticipated
a great address and tin y wore not
disappointed, lie began by telling Die
story of Samson and the lion; he re-
counted llii> events leading up to our
cuiraneo into the world conflict, how
the unseen boust was lying in wait to
spring upon us unaware. Ills state-
lnent that he would not degrude the
lion, the king of beasts, by compar-
ing him with Germany hut rut her he
would liken Uerninny to Hie liger,
cruel, brutal, bloodthirsty, hut none
the less dangerous, was greeted with a
storm of applause.
Dr. Hay divided his subject Into
four different phusosiWhy is this war?
Where is this wur? Who Is ill this
war? How are we going to win Ibis
war? In discussing the llrsl phase lie
told at length the alms and purpose
of America "We are not," he suid,
"in this war because we are a war-
like people, because at heart wc arc
a peace-loving people. Nor are we in
tills war for conquest. for Indemnities
or for land for colonization purposes.
We are laying upon the altar of jus
Hec ami Immunity the lil'cblood of
thousunds, perhaps hundreds of thou-
sands, of our best young men, yet
when this wur is over we will not usk
one penny of indemnity from uny-
boily. We are making this contribu-
tion to civilisation. We are not in this
war for revenge. Wo must bear in our
hearts no mallet, hate or desire to
Uitvs Wur Alms.
The speaker then presented three
all-ombrucing reasons why it was
right for Ainerleu to enter the world
war. First, lie said It was Die imperi-
ous demand of high Idealism, to
make the world safe for Democracy.
Not that we are going to say to the
world what kind of it government
each nation must have, not even tier-
many, but wc shull say to the flcr-
mait people that if Uiey want an au-
tocratic, tyrannical form of govern-
ment (which they do not), then they
must keep II wilhtn their own borders.
Second, he said we must respond to
the Imperious demand of a most gen-
erous altruism, the demand upon the
strong to protect the weak. Here he
mentioned the cruelties and atrocities
committed upon the helpless people of
Helgiuni outrages almost tint bought
of in civilized countries.
"If there Is a man of yon," ho
snld, "who Is so gross, so grovelling,
that ho ennnot respond to the demand
of high Idealism, I Will present lo you
ii reason which you cannot help but
accept. We are In this war for self-
preservation I did not realise this un-
til I began reading (termini llterulure
through which there runs a well-de-
llncd purpose of (lerntany to some day
get her hands at the throat of the
I'nl e«l States, even though she pre-
tended to be friendly toward lis." Ilo
then told of the plots and propuganda
which have been brought to light, not-
ably that In which Herman) planned
to havo Mexico assisted by Japan at-
tack un from the west. In return for
which nho (Mexico) wnii to be given

his subject Itr. Hay snld: "The war

Dr. Itiiy then launched into tin elo-
inent discussion of Hie last and most

"would we gain if we should win the

' m Die oilier hand, what it we pre-
serve these illst H ill Ions and yel lose
the war? lu that, case Ucrtunii kultur
would be taught lu our p ii ii I ie schools
and our ministers, instead of getting
inspiration from Jesus Christ, would
he getting il from the kaiser.' Thus
■ 'o showed that our aims can not be
t'.skeii singly but nre Inseparable.
The speuker said that young men
should not hesitate to offer their lives
for the cause. He expressed the lit -
mod . contempt for the young mull
who would offer spurious or llctitlous
claim:- for exemption lu un effort lo
evude military service. He said that
the stigma of cowardice would go
will him as an irredeemable disgrace.
Me said that the men who rule this
com ii I rv when the wur is over will be
the men who fought In France; that
lie believed parents should encourage
tilth boys to enlist, though it might
brink their lieurls. "For my part," he
said, "I would :nlher my boy's hones
would blench yonder on the lields of
France than to have him lying around
home sticking his thumbs a miser-
able slacker." A t I Ills he wus vigor-
Appeal* to runners.
Dr. Itay spoke in highest terms of
the work of the Itcil Cross, the Y. M.
i'. A., and other institutions which
make It possible that the religious
environment of the training camps Is
as good as at home. Following an ap-
peal for strict adherence lo the Hoov-
er food program. Hie speaker muile a
logical appeal lo the farmers of tho
county to heed the call of the govern -
incut that, the various states shull
feed themselves, lu fact, he said that
if Texas does not feed herself she
must go unfed, lie made the slate-
mcnt that the wur is costing u billion
dollurs a month und cited thut the
Tanners nre making more in excess
profits because of the war than the
war Is costing.

lu conclusion Dr. Hay brought to
the attention of his audience the
Third l.lhcrty l^oan which Is to be
launched In April, lie outlined the
different plans of buying bonds uml
Impressed upon Ills listeners the fact
that every one with any Income could
buy a bond of some dcnomllliition, es-
pecially in view of the fact that V'"'

Mayor Finch then called upon the
Hov. V. W. Wallace, pastor of the
First Christian church, for a brief
