I ARE THE GERMANS DYING?
How much of truth Ihrrc is in tlx- statement of Prof Max Von
Cruebr that ten to fifteen million of the German people will die
out, because (iormany no lonpcr can provide for them, is difficult to
determine, as the fjrnians are committed to a policy of propaganda
which permits the stretchLne; of the truth in order to gain an advan
tage. Hut there is evidence thai ilic Germans suffered severely dur
ing the war and toda are struggling to exist.
Professor Yon Crueber is full of resentment. Tie speaks of the
theft of colonies, of merchant fleet and possessions abroad and of
the unfair hunger blockade imposed during the war. It is a pecu
liar mental process which allows a German to think he was sinned
against, without sinning. The allied countries were clearly informed,
when the conflict seenn-d to be gomg in favor of Germany, that they
would be called on to make heavy sacrifices in territory, pay the
cost of the war and yield up machinery and treasures. In fact, the
manner in which Belgium and northern France were treated pointed
to a despotism worse than anything in modern times Now. with
Germany left almost intact, except the colonial possessions which
were obtained bj aggrandizement, and with her national existence
unimpaired, there should be no complaint as to the harshness of the
'terms of peace.
If the Germans during the war suffered of hunger because of
the blockade, they had only themselves to blame Their submarine
warfare justified retaliation of the drastic nature If the boomerang
kthey employed struck back, the effect was retribution.
With the war over, we as a people must forget the bitterness
of the struggle, and, although resenting accusations such as ema
nate from Professor Von Crueber, plan to alleviate extreme distress
and overcome unbearable conditions in Germany. There is no desire
ito undermine the health of the German people or to impose impos
The French are Buffering of the terrible afflictions placed on
them by the invaders and a lug part of France may never regain
the physical strength of the days before the var But even that sad
reminder of brutal nmsterj does not inspire retaliation now that it

I ENGLAND'S PERPLEXITIES.
I here is just enough smoke to indicate that the flames of Bol
shevism have spread to England. At a meeting of the British labor
'leaders in London yesterday, resolutions were adopted in opposi
tion to interfering with the Kussian campaign on the Polish border,
and J. H. Thomas, secretary of the National Union of Railway Men,
said that, if circumstances demanded, it would be for the whole labor j
movement to decide upon direct action.
"Desperate and dangerous as is our method." he continued,
"we believe that the disease is so dangerous and the situation so!
.desperate that it is only desperate and dangerous meihods that .an)
prevent calamity The resolutions do not mean that it is to be a I
.mere strike or a simple 'down tools' policy, h they are to be ef
fective, the mean a challenge to the whole constitution of this coun
Robert Smillie of the miners' organization, said.
"If France and General Wrangel cut off Russia's coal supply,
will it be interfering too much with France if th. British miners and
railway men cut off France's supplj ?"
It is the possibility of tins radical action on the part of labor;
.unions in England that causes Lloyd George to seek a way out of the 1
Russian tangle without militarj aggressiveness by Great Britain.
No premier of Great Britain ever has had a more difficult situ-i
tation than that now confronting Lloyd George. His country is try-I
ing to turn away from all thought of the strain and stress and the
blood of war, but there remains a greal work undone in pacifying
the world and snuffing out the flame of anarchy. I'nless Greal
Britain plays a courageous part, now that America refuses to take
any action, there may sweep through Europe the horrors of Die red
Stating that the hailstorm in Lehi, last Monday evening was the
greatest in Utah history. J C Alter declares many of the hailstones
were five inches in circumference, and destroyed windows, shmb

On examination, Mr. Alter found that the broken hailstones
presented the usual, but very interesting, concentric layer structure
i beginning at the center with a half-inch crystal marble or frozen
, raindrop; on this were alternate Layers of opaque and crstal snow

vertical drafts into freezing atmosphere before hailstone was finally

to allow the stone to fall entirely to the earth Mauv of those exam
