That this diabolical plot aimed primarily at the destruction of Christianity and Nationalism, deceitfully disguised and misrepresented as a "charter for world peace” following in the wake of a war-torn world, and likely to be passed by the United States Senate, is one of those rare political phenomena that comes as a climax to a country that is bedeviled by subversives and anti-Christians, and whose leaders have chosen the path road of anti-Christianism.

The charlatans, fakers, humbugs, and crackpots who are sponsoring this socalled peace charter are the same old warmongering gang, who, before Pearl Harbor bent every energy to involve this country in world slaughter No. 2. And now we find these same scoundrels masquerading as humanitarians, peace lovers, “do-gooders,” and world sayers who "saved” us for slaughter No. 2 are now going “to save" us via the “peace charter” for world slaughter No. 3. The same monster who pushed us into the fire will now "save" us from (for) future fires.

Recently, I have talked with several Senators, who while not particularly outstanding because of any pro-Christian sentiment, but who could usually be relied upon in the past to follow a sound American course in matters of this sort told me very bluntly, and even belligerently, that they intend to vote for the Charter, and that it would surely be passed with but few minor reservations, if any. This to my mind is downright treason. Any Senator voting for this Charter should be driven from office and the public affairs of this Nation.

In view of this, one is compelled to ask: What influences produce such puppetlike capers on the part of our Senators? Have they been bullied or threatened by the subversives into accepting this hypocritical position? Or, have they sold out for a price? Whatever the answer, we Christians have failed miserably in our duties to both God and country by not asserting our rights, and by not being articulate enough.

It is reported that the loud-mouthed subversives and anti-Christians now resident in America, regardless of whether they are citizens or not, continually deluge Congress with petitions, letters, and telegrams, often using fictitious but Americansounding names in an effort to put across various schemes designed to de-Cbristianize and to de-Americanize our country. Vill the general American public take any action to correct the conduct of these subversives?

Will you use your influence on any persons or groups whom you can affect and whom you believe to favor such a course being taken by our Senate? Impress upon them the sure and subsequent dangers to our country of so false an attitude. Write or wire a protest to the President, and your own Senators, letting them know in no uncertain terms that you are opposed to any participation in a world organization of this kind.

Do not be deceived by unprincipled men or traitors who cry they seek "unity among the nations" or "worla peace”. Ask them what are the elements which are to constitute "unity among the nations" and "world peace”. Are they to flow from a truly American and Christian spirit? Are they to be kept free from the contagion of anti-Christian and anti-American subversives?

We are told that the war is being fought for the preservation of civilization. Are we not to presume that in a Christian country this means Christian civilization? Therefore, at home and abroad, win the war on Christian principles and in a Christian way, and make the peace a Christian peace.

The San Francisco Charter is the greatest fraud ever to be foisted upon the American public. It robs us of the very liberties for which we are supposed to be fighting. It makes the world safe for communism by preserving the status quo. The whole thing should be kicked into the sewer without further ado. Act now, for tomorrow may be too late. Yours for a Christian peace,

CHARLES ALBERT McLain.

A SUGGESTION FOR FORM OF PROTEST TO SENATORS

Senator

Senate Office Building, Washington, D. C. Sir: I hereby solemnly vow, that should your vote subordinate our sovereignty, or place the affairs of this Nation in the lands of any such world organization as provided in the fraudulent San Francisco Charter, to influence my relatives, friends, fellow Americans, and especially veterans, to vote and work against you until you have been driven from public office and the public affairs of this nation.

Very truly yours,
