How Talaat, a former letter carrier, became, almost overnight, Grand Vizier of Turkey, with unlimited powers. How Wagenheim, Ambassador from Germany, cajoled and compelled the Young Turks to Prussianize the entire Turkish army. How the German Ambassador admitted that the Potsdam Con ference of July 5, 1914, precipitated the war. How Germany attempted to organize a '"Holy War" and arouse 300.000,000 Mohammedans against the Christian world. For the first time the story is told in detail of the Dardanelles fiasco?one of the most tremendo us blunders in history. How the Turks and Germans had given up hope. Trains were standing at the station ready to take the Sultan, the government and the Am bassadors to Asia Minor. All were waiting the triumphant sec ond attack of the allied fleet?which, instead of attacking, sailed away. ? Ambassador Morgenthau's story is a historical document which - recounts facts as extraordinary and thrilling to Western minds HENRY MORGENTHAU, Former U. S. Ambassador to Turkey as the Persian carpet tales of our childhood. Begin with the first in stallment and follow it to the end. It will run daily in The Herald. Cop*,righic * by Pech Broa. A Warning To America The American Ambassador to Turkey was stationed in Constantinople for two years and during that time was in charge of the interests of as many as ten nations. Representing neutral America, he stood many times between Turkish and Hun atrocities and their threatened victims. He was made the confidant of the Turk and courted by the German agent. There is no greater danger to the United States than the same sort of German propaganda, the spread of which in Turkey, Italy and Russia, Mr. Morgenthau de scribes: How German banks controlled Turkish finances, how German houses controlled Turkish commerce, how German officers were the drill masters of the Turkish army, and how, finally, Turkey was delivered over to Germany, bound hand and foot. We know how to fight with our guns and our fists, but every American needs to be informed of that more dan? gerous underhand, intriguing, despicable warfare that Germany wages unceasingly.
