While this country and Germany are in a state of war it is our duty as citizens to stand by this country. It is, to say the least, not wise at the present time to criticize our country, our army and our government. It will put a wrong impression into the mind of foreign countries, contrary to the good and best interest of our country and liable to do harm to the very people that don’t know enough to control their passion and tongue. Let us unite while the times are serious and conditions become graver every day.
