ance or the United ntates and its forces
in the war come from Germany. Kfforts
are made by some to diarredit the
effects of American participation. One
inspired article, written by a military
contributor to the' Algcraelne Zoltung
hi quoted In desiiatchea from AnrsteT
'dam. In that article the writer is
in that he doei not beffieve the figures
given out by Secretary of War Baker,
'But even if those figures are true we
will whip them any way."
Another View
A hih German oflioer, bus told the
military critic of the Tribune de Gen-
ova that the great aid which the Amer-
icons are rendering the Allies is caus
ing. much anxiety to the German im
perial headquarters. Geneva des
patches said the German people are get
ting anxious over the outlook for oppo
sitioe by the Americans. They cannot
understand why the successful German
eiibmarino war is unable to prevent a
million Americana from landing in
France. The people are learning the
truth only from the foreign papers.
