MONDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1917.
This is a black week for the allies. It is the most
dismal since the Russians were beaten back across the
Donajec in the fall of 1915. The disaster to the Italian
arms is gloomy news for Americans, but helpful withal.
If it can only loosen the scales from our eyes; if it
can make us see the war-scarred map of Europe as it
really is, and rouse us to the great task that lies be
fore us, then indeed future generations may have
cause to raise thanks to the Almighty that it has hap
It is the real turning point in the war. The allies
must either hang together or hang separately. Let
them cease their chatter about the peace terms they will
"offer" Germany. A few weeks ago Italy was prating .
loudly about insisting upon the restoration of Italia
Irredenta and the entire Dalmatian littoral to her in
the peace conference. Now she will be humbly grate
ful if she can save Lombardy and all her northern
prosinces from being overrun by the enemy horde.
This puncturing of the whole bubbis of allied pretense
makes the nations in arms against Germany almost
look silly. It is about time they placed solid facts be
hind their logic.
The Teuten, have turned the trick with regularity.
In 1915 it was Russia and Serbia. In t916 it was Ru
mania. In 1917 it is.Italy. Who will be.the spoils of
ii8 for the relentless German maw? For unless the
strong men of the allies determine-to deal in facts in
stead of phrases. unless they absorb some of the "blood
and iron" which is the keystone of schrecklichkeit,
there will be another vict.m a year from now and it
may be France.
America has an ideal chance at the coming inter
allied conference to insist upon an absolute unification
of war coitr'l. Every nation at war with Germany
is now dependent on the United States. We are the
power house of the whole war machinery. Therciore,
since the allies are in need of a strong man who will
wield the powers of an autocrat, let us supply him.
The last vestige of an excuse has passed why Italy,
France, Britain, or any other of the allied powers
should venture to advance a single one of their private
interests against the common interest. Everything
must be thrown into a single pot. There should be no
tolerance of pulling and tugging in opposite directions,
or of one nation ignoring the teamwork that is ordered.
If the European nations leagued against Germany can
not grasp that fact after three years of war, it is time
that the American government forced them to accept

'he enemy either knows the situation down to the last

trength America embattled will have at the zenith of

"'Wonderful things have been done done in Amer
:an shipyards, but more must be done," says Theodore
,. Knappen in the New York Tribune. "The public,

ager for information regarding their production, but
