PREDICTS AN UNDERSTANDING
BETWEEN GERMANY AND RUSSIA
Harvard Professor Predicts Peace No.
gotiations Between Slays and Teu
'Cambrftfge, Masi., Oct. 20.-Hugo
Muensterberg, professor of psychology
at Harvard, in an address tonight be
fore the International Political club
Df the university asserted that he hati
been reliably informed that Russia
and Germany would sign terms of a
separate peace before spring, and that
after this peace there would be an al
liance between Germany, Russia and
"I khew from reliable sources," he
said, "that Russia is out of joint, is
half bankrupt, is starving and will be
ready for a separate peace before
spring. The result is to be an al
liance between Germany, Austria
Russia, and Japan. Japan and Rus
sia are pushing toward this combina
tion and an overwhelming majority
of the Germans would welcome it to
day. It is the old Bismarkian tra
dition that Germany ought to be the
friend of Russia and that such an al
liance would be her surest protection.
"If we really want to bring peace
for a generation there is no hope but
Lc bring Germany and England to an
understanding before . Germany' and
Russia have formed an alliance.
Neither the English nor the German
people want this peace today but they
cught to want it, for once the new al
liance is formed it will seek to crush
the ambition of England for world
"Some neutral group1)s in Eu role
