Showed Teuton Traders How
to Profit From Stricken
By the Associated Press
Parli. Feb. 11. The report, prepared
In 1016 by German main headquarters
to show how Germany would benefit
from the destruction of certain. Indus
tries In France, contained 482 pages.
according to the statement made to the
Supreme War Council at Its meeting
Mondav afternoon by Louis Kloti, the
, French Minister of Finance. Material for
th. rwnort wu collected by 200 experts
!rho were released from military duties

A full review Is made of every French
Industry. Including spinning, uyeinc,
unttorv. chemlealn. sugar, brewing, min
ing, leather, milling, clothing and rope
making. The report says that all these
Industries "offer excellent oDenlngs for
German traders In splto of a somewhat
As the French metal Industry In the
occunled regions had been "suppresseu
and was without supplies of raw mater
ial, which the occupied regions could
not produce, the report says that It was
possible for German traders "to sub
stitute yourselves In this new market."
Regarding the French sugar Industry,
the German headquarters pamphlet
"Business relations with Germany are
, sure to continue because the French
sugar Industry cannot do without Ger
man beet seed without damaging itself
and It must also buy large quantities of
German coal, the French coal mines
having suffered severely."
In Its Inventory of the ruin caused
In the weaving plants of northern
France, the report says: ,
"Considerable quantities of raw ma
terial, manufactured goods, thread on
bobbins and warps havo been sent to
Germany. In Sedan, all the plants
have been destroyed. The machinery
has been taken away and the buildings

.William D. Lewis Suggests Weap
on Against Bolshevism
To help meet the menace of Bolshei
vlsm and to solve more effectively the
serious problems of radicalism In the
country, a truly democratic national In
terest demands a revolution In the cur
ricula of tho secondary Rchools.
This onlnlon was expressed this after
noon by William D. Lewis, principal of
the William Penn High School, at a
luncheon of the Engineers' Club, 1317
"We should evolve an Intelligent basis
for the teaching of democratic prin
ciples to the bovs and girls in the high
nchools." lie said, "and we should then
nnnlv thesn nrlnclDles throuch tho ef
fective organization and administration
of the school itscir.
" "We should have some course In the
high schools which would show the
youth of the land the right and the
wrong of their attitude toward the pub
lic and civic questions. They should havo
a conscience based on Intelligence In
public matters. They should be taught
an understanding of. human relations
. and human development."
There Is a little woman In Washing
ton Square, past eighty years of nge,
who, although she Is confined to her
room by Illness, Is rejoicing because
Senator Penrose was one of the mem
bers of the Senato who aided In the
defeat of tho suffrage amendment.
And too.f there may have been some
sentiment en the part of Senator Pen
rose, Inspired by this lady, when he cast
It's vote as he did.
She Is Miss Lydla H. Penrose, aunt
of tho Senator, who lives In the old
Penrose mansion, 700 Locust street, on
the south side of Washington Square.
"Tho recent conduct of tho suffragists
shows they are unfit to voti they do
not deserve It." Is the terse manner In
whloh Miss Penrose expressed her views
on suffrage this afternoon, "and I asked
the Senator to oppose the amendment
In memory of his sister-in-law, the
late Mrs. Knthatlne Drexcl Penrose,
who was an ardent antl-suffraglst."
Miss Penrose wrote a letter to Senator
Penrose along those lines.
"I wrote as strong a letter as I
could," said Mlts Penrose. "I am glad
the Senator cast his vote as he did."
Mrs. Katharine Drexel Penrose was
the wife of Dr. Charles B. Penrose, of
1720 Spruce street. For many years
she wat' Identified with the antl-suffrago
moement here. She died May t, 1918

room most of the time, takes a great

where It can be seen.
"Do you think It would be approprl-,

"Yes." said Mr. Grafts', "to place It In

like putting the statue of William Penn

John Frederick Lewis, president of
tho Academy, also expressed the be
lief that the statue was too large.
"It would bo Impracticable to ex

a derrick and raise It to the second
floor, as Its weight would break the. sky

Into any controversy over it. various
views have been expressed regarding

several magazines and religious periodi
"I'm not at all grieved by the decision.
I hae been on art Juries myself and

Academy, believing It would be accepted
for exhibition. It was not accepted.

"It Is seldom that the public gets op

that purpose In mind. However the
statue, will bo exhibited In March at the
Art Club. The Art Club Is not equipped
with nn elevator, but tne statue win De
raised to the second floor "In the same
manner used to raise a grand piano."
When Informed that the figure would
be exhibited at the Art Club, Mr.

Doctor McKenzie was commissionea
to make the statue by the Methodist

that he would telegraph soon for n con

Mr. Veeder testified then that he was
unable to say who had written the
"Diamond T" letter, adding that It
might havo been anonymous. He said
today that Mr. Logan told him Sunday
he had written the "Diamond T" letter,
but did not put on the Identifying In

Asked why the writer wanted tho let

an exchange of telegrams, Mr. Veeder
said this was "because he thought they

He said" Mr. Logan's employment by

that every man and woman
engaged with us in making
our business successful
should be treated by us with
as much courtesy and kind

It is far easier to mix a lot
of heart in our business and
to get good results than it
is to be cold, calculating and
mercenary to grind the
hearts out of our associate

I write this letter, are work

Heart is a factor in the
business, you know as well

a joy and not a cross.
The very nature of my work
