"force these ideas on the young. Tell
the adults that something is nothing*
that nothing is something. The novelty
of the idea will call the susceptible like
flies to honey."...
About the United Nations. Miss Scutt
asks "Can an adult sit down with (hildren whose law is 'Gimme?'...."
While America sleeps
Evil powers wind llieir manacles
Around American institutions like
Simpering politeness, begging Heaven
To protect the innocent man against
Of espionage ami un-Americanism
Tho1 a thousand killers
With a thousand daggers
Wait to strike at the appointed time.
Traitors are safe in court
Behind the law that stubbornly prevails
"1 nfuse to answer
For fear I will incriminate myself."
Through the selections entitled "Korea" and "Come Home Korean Dead,
is woven Mis- Scutt'a analysis of the
plots of "the subtle enemy"" that
Keep- battles Btirring
I 0 deplete \niei ica
Of manpower and weapons,
In preparation for the fatal day
When the arch enemj will strike
At the great democracy ....
The (Communists can -kip
From Korea to Formosa,
From Formosa to Japan,
I i um Japan tn Hawaii.
From I lawaii to America!....
In the churches thev stand by their
In the old familial pews
Quiet, unseen,dn the aisles.
<(ver the heads ot the people
Tlie dead from Korea hear voices
Thai drown the voice ol the preacher:
\\ ho questions tlie virgin birth,
W ho questions the sanctit) ol marriage
Vgainst the words ol Jesus....
Home from the well-known hills.
.lack-mi Heights, old Baldy and others,
Silent ranks enter the Senate

To the twisted values ot senators
Vs they condemn the details of action

Fighting for the freedom of democracy
Vgainst the tyranny of communism,
Who put- God above all organization

Mis- Scutt'fl words speak so much
better for themselves than can the re-
viewer's pen that, tn order to outline
her thinking on the almost myriad as-
pects of the world situation as it affects
Vmerica today, the temptation arise- to
quote her words at great length. However, no review of Tomorrow could
encompass the full scope of this work.
Although the reader mav disagree with
Miss Scull's political philosophies, he
would be hard put lo find any better
expressed, more all-inclusive, or better
supported bv author's outline of Christ-
tan concept, religious and political his
torical background. Weaving the present
into the future. Miss Scutt proceeds:
The I nited Nations
Built up a power
That will one day challenge
The United States of America
In its avarice
For the source from whence came
American dollars strengthen its
To power lhat will swallow
The philosophy that fostered it.
Vmerica is too courteous
What is happening to ,America?
The path is being made easj
For the anti-( Christ
By apathetic < Christians
Too generous to the devil
To fight For I Christ
The growling and the hissing
Of hungry Asia
Laps at the sands
Like naves before a hurricane
i Cutting a pathway thru the jungle
\ little nearer
Vnd a little nearer
Vppeasement gives opportunity
For communism to seep
Into American minds. . . .
In Miss Scuti's closing section. "Revelations," biblical voices quoting prophetic words of scripture hud authenticity to the author's conclusion that our
future lies with God.
The voice nf him who is and ever shall he
Echoes through all -pace.
"/ am Alpha and Omega
The beginning and the end."
The grace of your Lord Jesus Christ
Be with vou all.
To those for whom the poetic word
can tell more by implication, by mood,
by rhythm and alliteration, than can
prose—Tomorrow will be treasured as
a thing of rare beauty, which needs
only the recognition of tooled vellum
covers, of the polished fragrant pages
deserved bv the finest classical works.
