AMERICA AND THE ALLIES
As a rule, it is sort of a habit of we Americans, when we have any
thing to do, to drive straight at the point without giving particular
heed to inconspicuous obstacles or details. We have won out that
way in the past, and will probably continue so to do, as long as we have
the power to force ourselves through. Many times, however, 111 seasons
of national crises, we have, perforce of our impetuosity, snagged on
obstacles with which we have had to reckon later.
Immediately in mind is the practice, possibly nation-wide at this
time, of using the expression "our allies," in referring to the Entente
powers of Europe. The caution of Washington against entangling

ihe Entente Allies and one with the United States of America. The

bringing on a new war with our country. There is a similarity in

interests will doubtless lead to a conclusion of peace at the same time.
