T]FIE PRESIDENTS ~P]F-,][~H l~residcnt Roosevelt laid down the gauntlet in his speech Monday. I~a did everything short of declar- ing War. In his pledge to "extend t0 the opponents of force the mater- ial resources crf this nation and . . that We ourselves may have equipment and training equal to the tack of any emergency and every ~efense", he said in effect to Ger- r~any, and mayhap, Italy: "We are helping France and England and we h~tve placed a chip on our shoulder, ~hich we dare you to knock off." There ~re several interpretations of What the President meant when he Used the word "emergency." We at~urne the more logical interpre- tation would mean that this coun- h'y:Wtll help the allies with fight- tlr, g mechanisms in sufficient quan- tity, to win the war, and if Germany ~aB.kes any serious objection to SUch a policy, an emergency exists. ~aut should be plain enough. How- ever, developmer, ts will develop as developments develop, and the l~0sple of this countzT will have their own internal difficulties. ~hlS means the fifth columnists in this country, of whch We have see. e~l varieties. ~'e have in Greenville and its area l~.rhaps a dozen or so fifth col- ttrnnists. A fifth columnist, in this COnnection, is any person whose m~3 of you2 efforts in that direction will be aiding the enemy. America, as We have pointed out to you, is technically at war with Germany. When your country is at war, it is high time to drop all isms except Americanism. Don't ask us what Americanism is. We can't aX- Flain it any better than you can. i BL0t we do know that Americanism is diametrically opposed to all other isms, especially in time of war, and- we would advise you to brush up on Americanism, although we are un- able to present you with a bleuprint of Americanism. And it will be of no use to you to argue that America will also op- ;erate under a totalitarian setup in time of war, We know that. The man you attempt to argue with also kvows that. VJe hope that, in case it i:- necessary to squelch the enemy by force, this government of ours will operate under a form of totali- tarianism that will prevent the manufacture of war mqlionaires. 3vt that will not make German to- nlttarianism better than American otalitarianism. To put it plainly, the enemy with which you sympa- thize is wrong according to Ameri- can standards, even though it be- comes necessary for the American gnvernment to adopt every item ant4 usage of totalitarianism in or- enl,ra esyotm e 940 ANC etaottttttti You fifth cohlm~ists are few, but you are in a position to 5e danger- l~hilosophy of life is detrimental to cus. In the Ume of emergency, you tbs best interests of the existing iare sometimes in a position to give Some communists, and espe- I direct aid to the enemy. You may those communists who advo-lnot give direct aid to the enemy, the overthrow of this govern- br.t you will be suspeeteu of it, and are fifth columnists. All Nazi the more you talk th more you will are fifth columnists, be suspected. When an emergency because the government of this e:,:Jsts, you are the emery dust in the C~Untry has declared itself to be op- co~o~.heels of victory Some of you POled to Nazi rule.

Mr. William Guggenheim, describ- ed in a press dispatch from New Yozk as a and mem- ber of the "mining" family will do as exhibit number one t~ establish the need for such re.examination ( ~ the part of some men of wealth who are enjoying the freedom and security of the United ~tates. Mr. Guggenheim is quoted by the United Press as saying that President Roosevelt should ,as a "patriotic" gesture, rezign to prevent the Euro- pean War from "spreading to our shores." Mr. Guggenheim says fur- thcrmore that our finances and pe- paredncss are "pitable." If Mr. Guggenbcim ts informed on the sub. ject he knows that President goose- vell is the first and only President we have had since the world War that has made any reel effort to bring te country to a :~)nditlon ofi preparedness. Assuming that Mr. Guggenheim is informed on the sub- ject we must conclnde that what troubles him iS the "fivances" of the country and the probability of tKe necessity of the payment of higher taxes. The President" has moved to- ward preparedness Just as rapidly ,~s public opinion would permit andI he has done it to protect us from the danger of Hitler and his Nape- Iconic complex. In view of the in. human treatment of his people by Mr. Hitler, Mr. Guggenhe~m should be willing to pay even h~gher taxes to pro~ect himself and his country against the danger of ths.t calamity. : If Mr. Ouggenhe~m was living un- dez the control of Hitler he would not pay taxes; he would surrender all his wealth, be would be stripped of all rights, he would probabd be pz~t to work in the streets as a sea- venger. Mr. Guggenhelm would not have to be guilty of any crime,or v to}ate any law to suffer this de- rredatton and humiPatton; it would happen to him Just because he is a Jew; even if he possessed the in- te!lect and the character of Louis D. I~randts, it would not save him, he wculd suffer the consequence of hsving been born a Jew. One would think that Mr. Gug- gcnhetm would be able, in these cir. enmstances, to see over and beyond his financial matters and l-e willing to commend and co-oper- ate with the President in his efforts tr prepare against this war crazed dictator. In using the intemperate language of political reacUon to at. tack the President in these crittcal times, Mr. Guggenheim becomes a greater potential menace to the wel. fare of his own people, so far as this To these fifth columnists, we mont.
