Ulfwence Ponlou, T IS twilight on the Aisne. In the distance stretch the barbed wire entrenchments of the enemy. At intervals between the trees can be seen the long, sleek backs and cavernous mouths of monster howitzers. The clear morning air brings the sharp report of a rifle. Over the soldier steals uncanny premonitions, fore- bodings that with the dawn may come the end. Rifle reports grow faster, shrapnel breaks overheadg aeroplanes soar high. Earth trembles with the boom of mortarsg the crack, crack, crack of machine gunsg and the pom, pom, pom of 75's. Bursting shelhs take as their toll one or a hundred lives. , Behind inexorable gas clouds, twenty miles of soldiers rush forward-the death struggle is on. f' f' if Twelve hours of such carnage and the smoke clears away. The evening shadows reveal a gruesome spectacle. The once level ground torn and rent-eacli liillock piled high with the quivering forms of human beings, beaten, mangled, eyeless, jawless, limbless, lifeless. Night falls. The pale moon sheds its sickening beams oier all. Out of the impending dark- ness come the groans of the wounded, punctuated by the dismal struggle. Then silence-silence. Such is a picture of No-Man's- vance on the Aisne. Such is modern war. Such is twentieth shrieks that mark the death Land after the French ad century uncontrolled force. Wlar has in like manner, but in less marked degree, perturbed society since the dawn of history. The modern war of nations is an evolution of individual combat. The cause of this social chaos has been uncontrolled force-a struggle between individuals, clans, tribes, or states, over which there was no human authority. A' f it Still, the crude civilization of the past was undoubtedly promoted by the iron hand of war. Force invaded Gaul and Briton and gave to Celt and Teuton the rich culture of Rome, Force united the German states and gave birth to the most versatile nation of the ages. it it it But other more constructive forces a1'e rendering war no longer necessary. Mis- sionaries carry their evangel of good will to earth's darkest places. Education is within reach of practically every individual of the civilized world. Steam, electricity, and the press, are welding modern nations into a, great interdependent commonwealth. Democracy is teaching the common man his responsibility toward the problems that affect his own destiny and demanding that he root up the evils that menace the general welfare. These new and higher forces are pregnant with the same character-building elements formerly thought to inhere only in the strife of the battlefield. it ti t' As the world moves forward the logic that consigns war to oblivion must grow ever stronger. The problem of today is the elimination of war and the adoption of more progressive principles. 'Q it at Recognized by each and supreme over all must reign a higher law, a law powerful to curb the recalcitrant nation and quench the sparks of warg yet auspicious and benign, under whose governance the forces of peace shall ,accomplish their mighty tasks. VVhat shall this higher law be? The logic of events points unniistakably to an over- whelming league of force, subject to the orders of an international tribunal, and supported by the public conscience of the world. It is the logical next step in the social progress of the world. The stage of self-asserted justice evolved into the city police, the county sheriff, and the state militia. The era of state sovereignty merged into the broader and more altruistic national control. Today the supreme court of a nation renders its verdict. lt is but a word, yet that word is law. It is the voice of a nation. it it 'f' If "through the ages one eternal purpose runsf' if history is to unfold consistently with the past, the cogent example of thirteen heterogeneous colonies welded into one common mass is a fore- runner of the Unitcd Nations of the NVorld. True, destiny decreed that the integrity of our nation should be tested in the tires of civil warg and, though dreadful the thought, humanity too may be compelled to sacrifice herself once again before the last flag of rebellion dips to salute the authority of universal law. it f it Out of the darkness and turmoil of the present will emerge the human control, the peace of the world, the subinission of the minority to the will of the niajority-a militant peacc. Then the scrcech of shrapnel and the roar of cannon shall he drowned in the lnun of progress and the noise of industry: for the ruthless slaughter of war, the noble sacrifice of science, for thc menacing armaments of militarisni. the vigilant armies and navies of co-opcra- tion, and with Englaud's poet: "-the coimnon scnsc of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe, And thc kindly earth shall slumber. lapt in universal law." . 1 f,. f fa:--., 4--.ff-M'-we 2142, "f'jsQZf4f1.1 f' f JS iii ff ' -- X .r'f,5,4y'-5 ry , fplf my ' 137
