For a lonj? time many people, in
America and over here believed that
a revolution would sopn break out in
Oermany. sweep tlie Kaiser from I1I1

themselves. Tlicy llvri in fear and
trembllni? of .their military masters,
who can alwnyn enforce obedience by
taking away their scanty rations and
sen'dliiff them to the firing Hue, and
thev lack great revolutionary leaders.
The Impulse In revolt must conic
from without. In the days following
the Czar's overthrow it seemed for a
while ns if it might come from Russia.
The German strikes were an echo of
the revolutionary tempest In the Kast.
'But the Kaiser's Government con
cluded a traitorous peace with the
bribed and duped Tinlshevikl and thus
robbed the German worklngmcn of
their natural Russian allies.
1 Tleilured to Slavery
Instead of liberating (lie German
people, tlio Russian revolution, by
ntrengtlienlnc the falling military
power of the 'Prussian autocrats,
reduced it to more hopeless slav
ery than err. At Rrest-IJtovsk
Lenine and Trotsky betrayed not
only the Kntente but also the pro
letarians of Germany, who had looked
to. the triumphant Russian labor lead

Austria May Aid Revolution
Today there are signs that this rev
olutionary impulse which the German
working classes need to encouiage
them to rebel against the Kaiser and
I.udendorff may come from Austria.
k The emphe of the Hapsburss Is on
sjtj" the verge of collapse. The population j
? is, without exaggeration, starving.

! Ready for Revolution
The SUv races of the monarchy,
inspired by President AVilson's words
of sympathy, are almost In open
v r revolt. The Czechs, and even the
W Poles, are ready to rebel. ' The -Hun-
fs earlans are growing restive, and are
filled with growing hatred of the Aus
trlans and Germans, who are taking
their plentiful food supplies away from
them and forcing them to endure their
share of starvation. Chronic cabinet
crises In Vienna and Budapest are de
stroying the last estlges of orderly
cjvil government. The worklngmen
throughout Austria and Hungary havi

A .suggestion tha' the name of tin

be changed to Coaquanock, the Indian
name by which this legion was known.
Is regarded favorably by olllelals of th

As the first ship to take the water
