What America Will Do
To Help Beat Germany
Thr die is cast.* The American people take up the fcage of battle which has
forced upon them by the German Government, and will into the war up to the hilt
to defend American rights on land and sea, and the fundamental principles of democracy.
It will be no purely defensive war upon which America embarks, for President Wilson
in his message to Congress called upon the country “to exert all its power and an its
resources to bring the Government of the German Empire to terms and end the war
because “the world must be made safe for democracy.”
In THE LITERARY DIGEST for April 14th. public opinion as to the practical
steps which should be taken is shown. The submarine peril is one of the first, and perhaps
the most important, problems to be overcome. On this subject, press writers in London and
Washington tell of plans already made for cooperation between the American and Allied
navies. The various view-points upon universal military service, the dispatch of troops
to Europe, an agreement with Great Britain, France, Russia, and Japan, for no separate
peace, three steps advocated hy the ( hicago Tribune, are advanced, and arguments for
and against them are presented, in addition to other plans.
Other significant phases of the world’s news are also shown under these headings:
