A- Student Looks At War [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 1 June 1940
A- Student Looks At War By Roy Nichols The voice of Pacifist has ‘ become inaudib le . Try as we will to make ourselves heard amid the rumble of heavy artillery , the loud commands of Adolph Hitler , and the dreadful roar of decending ‘ bombers—all efforts seem futile . Even though most thinking men agree that war is pointless ; that it g a i n s - for the victor forced treaties that prove their shamefulness when the defeated are strong enough to rise again in protest , and for the gallant soldier agonizing death or a miserable maimed ‘ existence . Already , in this Second World War , thou-sands of civilia’n s have lost their lives . Cities have been bombed into oblivion—great ’ military minds testing their skill at the expense of htm _, an life . Grim reality , racing like a mad thing around the world , causes the staunchest Pacifist to be less vigrous in his tone ; though the view he ho ld- , without question , is the only effective way to put an end to the armored giant who conti...
