What food has she for her immediate and future needs? What of her finances? What of her industrial health generally ? The duration of the war hanfts largely upon answers to these questions. And to get these answers The World, in February, sent to Germany a man who has been a valued member of its editorial staff for more than a quarter of a century. This man has just re turned. He traversed Germany from west to east, from north to south. He studied, through the month of March, every phase of life in Germany. The result is a series of articles by nil odds the most important thus far of the entire war. The first ol these articles will be published by The World next Monday morning, April 12.
