We may not rest satisfied with
this verdict of history. We may de
mand more credit for our military
enterprises and economic assistance.
But there it is. We helped the Al
lies win the war sooner, by send
ing armies to France, and by send
ing vast supplies to every needy
camp; but our real contribution, our
single brilliant and enduring achieve
ment, was the triumphant interpre
tation and declaration of the prin

The verdict of history, as to how
the World War was won, and to
whom and what agencies credit
should be awarded, is rapidly pre
paring. And it is becoming more
evident daily that this verdict will
not be entirely to our liking.
It will have been noted by read
ers of public addresses and docu
ments that our former too boastful
claims have been greatly tempered.
There is rarely heard today the
once familiar boast that "we won
the war." We are beginning to al
low some credit to French genius
which really guided, perhaps creat
ed, victory and to the vast efforts
put forth by the allied European na
tions. But European students of and ac
tors in the great conflict have al
ready arrived at pretty definite and
harmonious views on the subject.
While these students of war do not
throw our claims out of court, they
no longer attempt to soothe us or
flatter us by graciously accepting
our contribution to victory at our
own high valuation.
Stephens Lauzanne, himself a close
student of the war, has an article
in The Outlook of September 7,
which is entitled "Germany Was De
feated When America Declared War,
Says General Buat." Lauzanne ie
editor of "Le Martin," one of the
greatest of the French newspapers.
This title is itself misleading, for
Lauranne seems to have two inter
pretations of the words of the fa
mous French military expert. He
seems to take the following language
f the General's "It was not in No
vember, 1918, when Armistice was
signed, that Germany was defeated;
it was in April, 1917, when America
declared war" as giving us credit
for the decisive coup, even if no blow,
save a moral one, had been struck
by us up to that time. But this is
hardly what Buat means, and Lau
zanne is aware of this, later on. We
quote a passage from his article:
jj. ay people have asked this ques

.. Wat would have happened in the
spr! ; of 1918 to Hindenburg if, in
sist .i of wearing out the German
foircu in the exhaustible attacks, he
had -raited quietly behind his for
ntid: lie lines of defense satisfying
hin.M !f in warding off the blows?"
To this Hindenburg has replied in
his "Mmmories:"
"The German army would have
died of exhaustion before the ene
my," to which General Buat, in his
be ok, replies as follows:
"The German army would have
been beaten all the same, because
during the series of attacks which
we 1 ad foreseen, and whose execu
tion was to have been extremely
rapii', nothing could have saved the
Gern :.n reserve. . . Our job would
perh; ps have been harder, but the
American army, which was there,
numerous, ardent, admirably equip
ped would have enabled us to accom
plish it successfully. . . The suc-
cps- of the "war would most probably
only have been decided in the spring
of 1,119. But it would not have been
changed, and the German army would
have suffered the same disaster it
su (Tired in the summer of 1918."
History is beginning to record our
part in the winning of the war a;
not the work of the armies in France,
not the vast supplies of food and
munitions of war, great as these
contributions were but as the moral
shoe': to Germany of President Wil
son's enunciation of the great prin
c:rt' ? for wTiich humanity was con
t4i!:ng. Those principles were and
remain invincible. What was needed
was their proclamation by some
present-day high authority, and their
prompt recognition by the masses of
mankind. The proclaiming of these
principles, along with the ideal that
peace should be merciful to the peo
ples misled by Prussionism, sattered
the morale of Germany and Austria.
That is our great contribution to
ward the winning of the war.
And it is because this contribution

Burglars entered the home of P.
J. Manuucy sometime between Satur
day midnight and Sunday morning
and robbed Mr. Manucy of $120 in
cash and checks. Up to a late hour
last night no clues could be found
of the perpetrators of the deed.
..Entrance was gained through a
aeceendoor in the back cf the house,
and the burglars or burglar came
through the house and into Mr.
Manucy's bedroom where he was
sleeping, and within three feet of
him and took the money from his
trousers pocket, and from a small
sack on the dresser. The money was
the cash receipts of his sales for the
latter part of the week.
Mr. Manucy states that there were
checks among the stolen articles, and
that none of them have been endors
ed and that payment has been or
dered stopped at the banks. Mer
chants in the city are warned to
be on the lookout for these checks
and not to cash them but to report
the person presenting them. One
check was signed by J. Waterman
for $25 another was signed by P. C.
O'Haver for $3, another for $2.50 by

by W. R. M in ton. Merchants are
requested to be on the lookout for
these and to report them to the po
lice authorities at once.

I At the Grand
House Peters Today . j
House Peters has always been a
favorite in Palatka, having first won
his way to the hearts of local movie
patrons by his splendid work in Henry
Miller's great success, "The Great
Divide." He will be seen at the
Grand today in a picture that is de
scribed by all of the trade journals
of moviedom as the greatest piece
of acting he has ever done, in "The
Great Redemption."
The story was written with a keen
eye to drama. Interest is caught at
once in the hero bandit who holds up
a train, and escapes from the pur
suit of the sheriff through the aid of
the girl. Though vowing to go
straight he weakens and is captured
after his pal has been killed. Sen
tenced to serve ten years he vows
to "get" thesheriff for the killing
of his pal.
Across the corridor of a cell holds
a condemned murderer, a blasphem
ous individual, who refusing to ac
cept the copy of the Bible handed hom
by the chaplain hurls the offering
into Dan Malloy's cell. Malloy, whil
ing away his time by sketching on
the prison walls, turns over the cov
er of the Bible, exposing the figure
of Christ on the cross.
He rubs out the sketch of a figure
of the pugilist and begins to draw
the figure of Christ on thecross.
Here the dramatic values of the
incident are skillfully worked up. The
sketch is finished. In the stream of
moonlight flooding through the bar
red windows appears Christ in life
moving from the sketch on the wall.
Reverently the condemned man and
Malloy fall to their knees. The
guards come running, they too kneel
in awe. And then the vision fades
and the murderer cries out of his en
lightened soul': "I have seen God."
It is an anticlimax of rare power
and impressiveness. During the show
ing at the Rivoli theatre the picture
was stopped at this point, the house
darkened, and the hymnal number
sung off stage. The effect was tremendous.
Among the new books of fiction at
the Palatka Library there is one for

you like realism without sordid

latest piece of fiction, "Alice Adams."

Or how would you like a Western
story ? Here is a tale by everybody's
favorite, Peter B. Kine. If you have
made the acquaintance of "Kindred
of the Dust,' you will want to read
this story of golden California, "The
Pride of Palomar."
If your taste -runs to stories of
English life, perhaps you would like
"A Man of Property," by John Gals
worty. This is the first in the series
that is brought up-to-date by "To
Let." (Which by the way, you can
laso find at the library.)
Perhaps, though, you would prefer
a romance with the hero and heroine
living happily ever after. Then fol
low the adventures of Tabs and re
joice with him when he finds his
"Kingdom round the Corner."" His
story is chronicled by Coningsby
Not fiction, but as entertaining, is
"Margaret Asquith," the autobiog
raphy of Mrs. Asquith, the wife of
England's former prime minister.
