Title

Column "Cotten Pickins"

Description

This article is an interesting contrast from the "BRouzing..." article because it provides insight into another side of the war rhetoric. In this edition of Cotten Pickin's, Bob Cotten urges Richmond students to start preparing themselves for war. According to him, in the current situation they would be overpowered by the Japanese and the Germans. He is trying to spread hate among the Students for Japanese and German people by portraying each of them as someone who wants to hurt the USA. He tries to aggravate the students by comparing them to an average Japanese/German individual and how they would stand no chance against them if they did not prepare for war.
