Washington, Sept. 19, H'lt. CONTEMPT FOR AMERICANS Its Presence Among Certain German Critics Is Noted and Discussed. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I have observed, while listening to conversations between so-called German-Americans, a marked bitter? ness and venom in their references to Americans generally. Since it has been revealed that Germany has lost caste in the eves of the world because of the il.- nisa,ne ruler -God's partner his admiring subjects in this coun? try manifest a contempt for Americans almost as de?p ?s that held for the uespised Briton. The leiters to the newspapers bttray this resentful attitude in a measure, but one only has to listen to the talk of these alleged German-American citi lena to realize how general and con? firmed is their mental attitude ton aid the natives of their adopted country. course, we grant that German born citizens have a right to their feel? ings and opinions although, just now, no other country would permit their freely mid we grant, also, that German Kultur entitles these self-appointed missionaries to influence barbarian judgment, but I would like to ask this very pertinent question: Where would these alleged German Americans stand in case the United State? should he drawn into a conflict with their dear Fatherland? Would their ingrained reverence for Imperial Wilhelm, militarism and German Kultur be pi. mount over their obli? gations as American citizens? WALT ftfDOUGALL. ?J?;, lull.
