Count von <Bernstorff, to explain
the. views of the United States regard-.
ing t'.e Lusitania ease, published an!
article in Der Tag today on "Germany ;
and America," in which he says his ex-:
periences convinced him that the two
countries misunderstand each other.
"It is true." said Dr. Meyer-Gerhard,
"that the American press, with some
laudable exceptions, especially t'be
German-American papers, have not
succeeded in remaining neutral, but!
the influence of the press upon public
opinion is sometimes greatly over-esti- j
mated. Doubtless large sections of the
American people are friendly toward
Germany, wfiose emcient organization
is dailv winning new friends and
arousing interest in things German. j
"One excellent effect of the war is
upon German-Americans, who, with- j
out sacrifice of their loyalty to their
adopted country, have shown strong
remembrance of t' eir descent, their,
education and their cu-lture. Besides \
them, cn the other side of the ocean, j
there are wide circles who sympathize
Alluding to the discusion over the
ammunition question, Mr. Meyfer-Gerhard
"Germans often mistake large am-1
munition orders for filled orders. To

a large extent such^orders are.x;hanging
big factories into ammunition
works. This is regrettable, but thel
writer is convinced that large parts'
of the American people disapprove of '
it. A popular vote would show a con- j
sidearbile majority against the practice.
Germans must discriminate be-|
tween business and accepting orders'
and the great mass of the American '
"Equally there are Americans who
condemn violation of Belgian neutral-,
ity and the sinking of the Lusitania,:
and are unable to understand t!':e Ger-!
man idea of the real condition, while
Germans are unable to understand
how Americans could travel on an
ammunition ship. Both people are
laboring under entirely different opin-;
ions. Both have lived hitherto in
peace and friendship, and should con- j
tinue so to 3ive. There is no real
reaspn for antagonism existing between
In t'-e course of his article, Dr. J
Meyer-Gerhard spoke of-the causes

many's former friendly feeling toward j
America, citing them as what he'

towards England and munition sales
in America. Germany on the other
hand, ?e said, was reproached with
violating Belgian neutrality and de-|
voting itself to militarism in order to(
conquer the whole world. The deaths'
of Americans on the Lusitaniah ad un-!
favorably affected American sentiment
towards Germany, he added.
Regaiuing the question of Belgian!
neutrality and militarism, the writer;
says the Germans cannot understand.,
the feeling aroused in America over |
these questions, as t-ey know that!

ity and that militarism is only the!
German nation in arms for its own de-!
fen-ce. The American viewpoint was j
different, however, and each nation
feels itself wrongly treated toy the
other. The whole matter was only one
of misunderstanding, said Dr. Meyer- j
Gerhard, whicTn can also arise be?
tween friends. No sensible man, hej
said, will light-heartedly throw away!
a friendship of long years because
he cannot on one occasion make himself
completely understood. Sensible
nations, he argued, will conduct themselves
in like manner.
"Friendship between Germany and j
America," declared Dr. Meyer-Gerhard .
"is a vail uable possession for botfa na-J
tions, and it is worth while to take
care that it be saved to both."
The Lokal Anzeiger, which also i
printed the article, commenting editorrially
on it said:
"The foregoing instructive and i
cheering remarks by Dr. Meyer-Ger- j
hard show itftat the imperial govern-;
ment is on the right road with its i
treatment of questions existing be- j
ween us and the United States. It is,
to be wished also that tfnose circles
which heretofore have been inclined
to make light of our differences with
America as being utterly unimportant
will 'let themselves be taught better
by Dr. Meyer-Gerhard's words."

of the intentions of the couple until
