Tho fact remains," however, that all tho blaro of scorn and

JftVilson's rejection of tho, Vatican peaco proposals has failed to prevent
the mcssago from reaching those to whom it was addressed.
What Is more, evidencos multiply that in many quarters tho

Itself tho Imperial press was unable to conceal tho snddon further leap
of liberalism which came like a golvonlo response to tho President's
Hungarian understanding of the message was to be expected.
But the'lfafcyar editor puta It in a form for all nationalities:
Ho who condemns Mr. Wilson's note has sold his soul to
the war devil and Is the enemy of peace.
. With ever-increasing certainty the hopo of ending the conflict in
the establishment of a lasting and well-guarded poace is seen to lie in
the plain talk of peoplo to people.
The worst enemies of peoce are, therefore, ministers, mouth
pieces, and inspired organs of autocracy whose essential function is to
interpose thomselvcs when the suffering, overburdened millions of
rar-wrung nations grope for somo basis of human understanding.
