THE DAILY COLLEGIAN
We, The Women—
It's Almost Christmas
Somewhere In England
The Pope issued a plea for a
4s-hour armistice over Christmas.
The plea awoke many thoughts
as to what Christmas must be like
over there. Can men go on be
lieving in something fine and de
cent while they go on killing and
dropping bombs on others who
are men too?
Can they see blood on the
ground and long for plum pud
ding and roast turkey? Can they
forget the hate and blood and
killing for two days and remem
ber the days over a year - ago
when there were prospects of a
Can they light Christmas trees
and theri black them out after
Can they manufacture toy guns
and soldiers and present them to
their sons without tearing their
souls out? Can they give dolls
to their little . daughters and for
get the little girls whose dads will
never come back?
Can the sound of carols drown
out the screams of agony and roar
of bombs and tanks?
Can a man forget those things
for 48 hours and then go back to
killing and hating? If he did go
home, would he be happier and
more willing to return to "some
where in England?"
Some think they could forget
and be happy for two days.
Some think if it could end for
two days it could end forever.
