I~q[E STUDY OF A MINUTE M&N The Minute Man came into being at Concord and Lexington. He was so called because the ques- tion of hours didn't bother him when trying to win a war. With him a minute was 60 see- ends and even ff It ran into 62 he didn't demand overtime. When his country" wanted him, a minute's notice was plenty. He was so loyal he would even take your version of what time it was. .... The Minute Man was a Minute Man and never a Four-Minute Egg. He reaUzed that a minute is a long time when somebody's life is at stake. He knew a minute was 60 seconds and not subjec~ to change without notice. He knew there were 60 minutes in an hour but he acted as dLligently as if he were afraid there might be ~Z only 59. He stood ready to fight at a min- ute's notice but didn't squawk if he got only 30 seconds. He never put off till the mor- ~row the bull's-eye he could make to- day. He never heard of the word com- placency, but if it had been ex- plained to " him he would have thought himself guilty if he had stopped to look around between shots. His slogan was, "Don't shoot till you see the whites of their eyes!" but he gets 'era now when he senses the black of their hearts. Wheh life and liberty were in. volved he knew no form of compro- mise that didn't depend on marks- manship. The Minute Man hadn't even a half second for an appeaser, He was no luxury hound even when the going was good, and when the going was tough he thought he was well fixed if he had a fair sup ply of dry powder and bullets. He never left to apy commit- tee, agency or board anything he could do himself. He never contused an attack with an appropriation. $ $ $ To a Minute Man every min'hte counted in the Job of licking*~e foe and he never argued over hours. He didn't worry about the peace until he had won the fight. It never entered his head that he could do his duty in e free-or-all fight by buying some stamps, ap- pearing at a benefitor offering to spend two hours on a roof'every other week, unless he was over 60. Nothing would have disturbed him less than a reduction in luxury transportation, less rubber in his suspenders and a room in which the temperature got below 70. He knew all the Indians were in the woods and not in his legislative bodies. He was brave and rugged but he thought one war at a time was enough. He never called his fight & "defense" effort and was always out te Uok the fellow who ~rt. ed the trouble. He didn't need long and frequent speeches to make him understand he was in a battle. In his mosl desperate minutes the Minute Man never gave any part of a minute to worrying about hi~ morale. It would have taken too many hours. The Minute Man was an all-yea. round man every second. @ NO D~OUR8 I cannot ~ a radio, I've got to scrimp on gas, MY tires they are going fast, I'm low on oil, alasl" I'm running low on beer (canned)-- Of sugar I am short; ~J I should get a new sedan I'd finish in a court.
