"The human heart longs for sym
pathy tho world over.." said Mrs. Percy
V. Penny-packer, of Austin. Texas, yes
terday. speaking to tho Woman's Club
on tho subject, "Which CI0603 the l>oor
?Youth or Age?" The lack of sym
pathy and understanding between the
two generations is an undisputed fact
and tho point of the discussion was
who is really to blame for tho situa
tion. Mrs. Pennypacker, who is a
charming and cultivated woman, is
on? of the most prominent club women
of this country, and her lecture yester
day was simply alive with vital points
of interest to a world of women
young or old.
Mrs. Pennypackcr discussed h?r sub

German Socialist's Views After
Six Months' Travel Through

I "What do you wish In Germany?
One more inouth to feed." That was
his real complaint. lloth the roit
| duotor nml the Inspector woro uni- 1
' forms that had patches on thorn, and 1
' they Ul-flttcd them. The friend whose
j acquaintance I had made In tho Swlsj |
i train did not appear.
It was nearly morning when the train '
pulled out o* the town. It was closely
, Hlled to the doors. The car did not
,have tho appearancc of having heen
j washed or cleaned for many years. 1
noticed the window pane facing the !
inext seat was patched with paper.
J Another 'window near the forward door J
, was boarded, while four other win- j
dowh had cracked panes.
Our train was traveling very slowly. I
The shortage of lubricating oil com- '
i pelled slow moving of trains. I con- I
j stantly watched the faces of the pas-i
i senRrers. and never once did I hear a I
j lautch or see tho motion of a lip that j
! could bo construed as a smile. An in- '
, quisitivo thought crept into my mind, i
j Why were they traveling? They wore
, not suburban passenger?. Why did so
many people want to travel In such
: a train'.' I bent over, and hesitatingly
j inquired of a woman next to me why
so many travelers were anxious to All
those cars? The woman grumbled and
said something that sounded like "I
am not a walking information office."
1 hold my tongue during the rest of
tho Journey. j
About an hour after our train had ;
started I heard loud voices In the rear '
of the car. There was a tussle. I heard ;
several voices shout. "Shame! shame!" j
Then I saw the conductor and the In- j
: spector dragging a woman to tho door. '
| I did not daro to inquire tho cause of j
! this unusual excitement. When tha '
woman was dragged out of the rear
door and the door was shut the pas- I
sengers fell into an agitated discussion ,
regarding the incident. Quarrels fol- |
lowed. From what I heard I gathered ;
that the woman was cursed and insult- '
! ed by the conductor. Apparently she j
j had resented his remarks and having I
; found out that alone he could not re- I
1 move the woman to the next car, which i
; was A baggage car, he had demanded i
the assistance of the inspector. To- >
gcthcr they had succeeded.
In any Swiss city or In any other !
Iar.d in which I have been, a crowd of |
passengers would not have permitted a I
woman to be dragged out of her Beat
; to the baggage car as punishment by
a conductor, or ten conductors. It was
talk, talk, afterwards. Angry and
threatening, but empty talk. The pas
sengers were ready to fight each other
j over the merit of the unehlvalrous con- J
ductor's act, but thcro was not one 1
person who would dare to raise his
hand In behalf of the woman. It has
become part of the German people's !
soul to fear their men In uniform. It !
will take many years before my people j
learn that under a uniform the flesh
and blood Is no different than what is
found hidden under civilian attire. In :

my elr months travels In Germany t
hnvo seen and heard people btcome
ilangerously restive, but the German
[luOplc. an a whole, have not yet learr,
ed that Just bocause a thins is "for
bidden" by the authorities. It may not
be Bin nor always be very difficult to
challenge it.
On tho 2Gth day of August I reached
B . which Is about eighty miles from
Munchen. In that placo there were
military officers with whom I was, In
olden' days*, on terms of familiarity, as
many of them had been admitted to
tho fraternal organization during trio
period in which I had held high office
in the district branch fraternity. I
wanted to Interview them. I wanted
to learn frpm their Hps how things
political sto&d iiv-^ermany.
The first person I Interviewed at
B was a very old friend, a colonel
of a regiment, now slowly dying of
tuberculosis, which he had contracted
lit the front. How aged ho was!
He was heartily happy, not only to
see me. but to see some one who had
;ome from a neutral country, who could
Lei I him something about the war. lie
Had remained at the front until threo
nonths before, and now he was ask
ing mo about the very war he had been
sngaged in fighting!
Instead of interviewing him I sud
lenly found myself interviewed by him.
[ wan not only amazed with hi* chlld
iiko innocence of what was going on
mtside of Germany, but really became
llsgusted with his ignoranco regarding
be military position of Germany com
jared with that of his enemies. For in
stance, ho argued with me a whole hour
ibout the "battle of the Marne." V.'hile
t termed that battle a disaster, he
vould try to make me believe that it
ivas nothing but an extensive wlth
Jrawal of the advanced guards. When
I reminded him of tho fact that In
nllitary clroles it could not be consld
ired as an extensive withdrawal of
tdvanced guards when th% retreat cov
sred an area of thirty miles, he brushed
ny reasoning aside and bluntly in
'ormed me that my statement >aa to the
ixtent of the Marne was not true. It
llsheartoned me to find a colonel, who,
it the end of threo years of warfare
lad been successfully kept ignorant of
he truth and significance of the tarn
ng battle of the whole war.
Thero are very few people in the
Phole German empire, even to-day, who
mow the truth about the battle of the
tt&rne, and most of those who do know
t, are civilians.
But finally I succeeded'In oonvine
nr my friend that he was wrong and
t was right. On finding new light he
lecame furious, and It was not long
>efore he had broached the subject to
>thcr Incapacitated officers.
My colonel friend Is not an excep?
tonal case. Everywhere In Germany ]
'ound people In all walks of life ut
terly uninformed regarding how the
war is affcctlng our enemies.
