What Germany May Do
Washington Germany may consent to modify rigor of submarine

severity of the blockade against Germany. This is the substance of
indirect communications conveyed to the State Department yesterday

thing official from American Minister Gerard, at Berlin, official Wash
ington is disposed to give the report credence. The only assurance
obtainable here last night, however, was that if Germany would give
her full and unreserved concurrence in the American proposals, it
would be the natural disposition of America to press for the right to
ship foodstuffs to German civilians.

Wilson To Germany jk v
Washington In his note to Germany, made public last night, President WilW
calls on that country to abandon its campaign of submarine warfare on merchant
shipping, charging it to be unfair to reason, justice and humanity; and in this import
ant matter the United States looks to Germany for prompt and enlightened action.
The note was cabled to Germany yesterday.
A belief that Germany would 'not accede to the demands was so strong in'
Washington last night that it found expression in rumors that Ambassador von
Bernstorff had informed the Stale Department in advance that his government could
not be expected to entertain such proposal. This, however, was later denied by
The President and his advisors recognized the opposition to the note that
would appear in Berlin, for Germany has spared no pains in the effort to justify her
submarine warfare against Great Britain and Franco as a military necessity.
Continuing in his note the President says that submarines cannot be used
against merchant shipping" without inevitable violations, of the sacred principles cf
justice ami humanity; and for such violations, whether they be incidental or
accidental, insofar as they affect American citizens and American ship-masters,
the United States will hold Germany to strict accountability.
The note is as gravely courteous as its serious burden would pcimit.
It lakes the position that such acts as German submarines have ccirmilled on
Americas and American shipping must have been carried out under misapprehen
sicn of orders; and asks that the whole subject be considered anew as a matter in
which Gcnrany had not arrived at a mature decision.
