The Sage Says: [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 2 April 1942
The Sage Says: By CLYDE BROWNE The above presumptuous title represents the opinion ot the publisher of this paper, and not the writer of this column, who holds that modesty is a virtue that should prevail in any itinerant scribblings. My thanks to a lady correspondent who sees eye to eye with me, but only one eye to one eye, otherwise we do not seem to synchronize so well. Anyway, the lady thinks on pertinent matters, which not everyone does. * * A sight of the watch tower over the armory, with its vigilant sentry scanning the heavens, brings to mind the tower at the 4-Square Gospel Temple, which might now do double duty. Some years ago a relative of the writer stood watch there and acquainted high heaven with the needs or wants of the Gosplers. It does seem, if they still carry on that Vigil, that between prayers for aid might be a good time to look for flairs of a raid. Sort of keeping one eye on the God of the universe and one on the God of War. * * “The Moon Is Down,” by John St...

Federal Insurance Against Damage By 'Enemy Action' [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 2 April 1942
Federal Insurance Against Damage By 'Enemy Action' A current news item informs us that “President Roosevelt has signed a bill providing Federal insurance for homes, factories and farms against damage inflicted by ‘enemy action’.” The “Law authorizes the War Damage Corporation to establish uniform rates throughout the country. ‘Reasonable’ protection against property damage that might result from ‘enemy action’ is being provided free until the premium rates are worked out.” Now just what “Enemy action” includes, or what “Reasonable” protection means, are both decidedly indefinite. And how soon rates will be established is also indefinite. Particularly so if handled by our politicians. Very few insurance companies have accepted any of this business since Tokio declared war on us, and presumably these few will withdraw if enemy planes really get into action on this coast. Even now all applications are subject to acceptance by the company. Subject to such acceptance a good contract, non...

Draft Registrants To File Statement Of Work Skills [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 2 April 1942
Draft Registrants To File Statement Of Work Skills Every man between 20 and 44 years of age who registered for Selective Service on Feb. 16 must fill out an occupational questionnaire which his local selective service board will send to him within a few days. The form must be returned to the seelctive service board within ten days after receipt. The purpose of this occupational registration, according tot the United States Employment Service, is to provide the government with a complete occupational inventory of its manpower. This information, it was said, will avoid induction into the armed forces of men more urgently needed in war production and will also speed the output of war materials by promoting the transfer of workers from non-essential to essential work. Each questionnaire is in two identical parts—one for the selective service system and one for the United States Employment Service. Information is requested on the registrant’s present job, his education and the kind of wo...

Praise to the Resurrected One. Rejoice and sing! These are glad tidings Angels bring Immortal life! Eternal spring! Rejoice and sing! —Constance Walker. Easter Easter means more to men in years of great travail personal or national. To all men, of whatever faith, Eastei symbolizes the triumph of faith and life over evil and death as no other day symbolizes it. This Easter finds the civilized world in the agony of its Gethsemene. To triumph over annihilation of all that freemen hold dear, the bitter cup of death, suffering and sorrow must be drunk by millions in many lands. But as Christ, after the sacrifice of his torment and death, rose from the tomb, so many Christian democracy, after the terrible sacrifices of war, rise triumphant to a new life of peace and happiness. This we ma...
