BERLIN, AprN 15.?There formerly
was an Easter custom whereby Ger
man pupils in humanist colleges
would go sinking Into the woods to
cut off willow switches with which
their masters might chastise them.
Europe's people today, however,
show no desire to prepare a means
for their own punishment. They do
not confess even to having blun
dered, but continue to place the
blame upon others. In some partB,
however, large masses, have sepa
rated themselves from the state. The
proud Roman name of proletarian
was given to the crowds who did not
serve the stats with property but
with offspring?proles?whoss lead
ers had the right to chastise the
more fortunaita classes of the com- j
munity as the old-time masters en- ]
joyed the right over their bad pupils.
"htrra>tiOB>l>" Meet.
This quiet week, devoted to the re
membrance of Christ's passion, has
brought the sound of many chasten
ing strokes. Representatives of
three internationals met in Berlin to 1
judge the earth's citizens. It was
the anniversary of the first Inter
national which emanated from the
little group of believers in the resur
rection of Christ, who attempted to I
form a Christian community without
national boundaries, which, however,,
on the eve of the second century
proved itself weak and ineffectual.
In 1864 a new international sprang
up. founded by Karl Marx. It called |
Itself the first international, al
though the founders believed they
were continuing the Galilean spirit
propagated in Rome. Had not Jesus
himself called the poorest and heavi
est laden tc Him and promised them
the kingdom of heaven? Had He not
driven the money changers from the
temple and publicly taught that It
would be easier for the camel to go
?hrougli the eye of the needle than
for a rich man to enter heaven?
Despite the noblest of principles
I Marx's international soon was the
subject of quarrels and of Sectarian
Then came the organization or the
second international. At first it seem
ed invincible. It caused govern
ments to tremble and flourished in
the face of the strongest of police
and military opposition. Therefore
it came to be regarded by the work
ingmen as pious Christians regard
the future of the world. In July,
1914. when the horizon of Europe
already was cloudy, the leaders of
the international proclaimed that
their principles would be stronger
than patriotism, that the working
I classes would not degrade themselves
i by fratricide.
Bush to Military Support.
But on mobilization day the evil
of words was rent asunder. Men
rushed wildly to the colors and the
part v. called?to give it its full name?
"the International Revolutionary Peo
ple fo'r the Liberation of Social
Democracv." became the strongest sup
porters if the military bourgeois
government?. Even orthodox Marx
ists like the Russian. Plechanow;
the Frenchman, Guesede: the Belgian,
Vandervelde. and the anarchist. Prince
Kuropatkin. supported their country's
cause. Those who confessed Interna
tionalism, like Lenin, were exiled, or,
like Karl Liebknecht, were imprisoned
and forced to make boots.
Later another international was
started, this time in the Swiss town
of Zimmerwald. A second, considered
dead since the bolsbevist revolution
I of 1917 had forced a dictatorship on !
' the vast empire of the former czar. I
was revived and a call issued for all J
peoples between the White and Yel-i
low seas to rally to its standard.
With the war over, a third one. like
wise supposed dead, was resurrected
in Vienna. Their leaders inveighed ]
against each lother louder than the
ancient Trojans and Greeks before
a battle. The third enjoyed the
prestige of being the first prole
tarian state to influence the east?
Turkey. Persia, India. The second,
especially organized for trade anions,
was expected to insure the money
necessary for economic and social j
war. Consequently there arose a de-,
sire, to co-operate. This was the
reason for the Berlin gathering. It
has made little progress despite a
great displav of rhetoric. Co-ope ra
tion as yet is impossible, but an In
ternational mass demonstration has
been called for April 20.
Russian Viewpoint. .
The contrasting Russian viewpoint
was noteworthy. At Moscow Lenin,
speaking on the Russian economic
condition, eaid: "We are not going to
Moscow as communiats, but as busi
ness men meaning to get as much as
possible for the Russian trade." At
the Berlin conference Radek, also a
member of the soviet government,
thundered against "the capitalistic
I robber states now considering their
new plundering expedition at Genoa."
These states, so kindly spoken of, were
forced by necessity and business hope
to have intercourse with the com
munist government, which Is really
their worst enemy, but so Important,
will that trade intercourse become
that moral indignation no longer will
be possible on the part of their repre- ]
sentatives now assembled at Genoa.
Mr. Child, the American observer
I at Genoa, sees signs of the highest
culture In the old-time charming pal
1 ace where the soviet representatives
i are meeting with the delegates of all
1 Europe. But culture already Is be
coming sclerotic, and also is uncon
sciously preparing a rod for Its own
back. Unless Europe becomes Inter
national in a practical sense, aban
doning nationalism closely guarded
by militarism, there is futile hope for
happiness on Easter day, although
the bells everywhere are ringing a

Refuse Insurance of Son, Slafri
In War\ on Religious Grounds
The parents of a soldier killed In
tl-e war have refused to receive in
surance checks from the Veteransf
Bureau on account of their religious
The case is declared by Director
Forbes to be one of the most unusual
ever handled by the bureau, and
although special Investigators have
been sent to the little home In North
Carolina, the father and mother of
Thomas Speaks, bugler In the 21st
Infantry, who was killed October 4,
1918, continue to refuse tire checks;
and the insurance money is accruing
in the bureau.
After the death of the soldier, the
Veterans* Bureau forwarded certain
forms to his parents, requesting that
they be tilled out and returned to the
bureau. There was no re?pon?e.
Within a few weeka the bureau wrote
the parents, inclosing additional
copies of these forms. But still there
was no response. This action on the
part of the bureau continued until
June, 1921, when a special Investigator
called on Mr. and Mr* Speaks rela
tive to the case.
In a personal Interview he learned
that the boy had enlisted In the Army
a minor; that the parents had been
dependent upon the boy; and that
due to certain religious doctrines they
could not accept the monthly checks
of $28.75 without feeling they 'Were
a party to their son's death. The in
vestigator could not make them un
derstand the protective side of gov
ernment insurance. They were arbi
trarily opposed to any sort of insur
ance, and ho reported to the bureau
that the parent! would under no con
ditions accept tlio money.
The investigator discovered that the
parent* had brought the body of
Thomas Speaks from France. He in
formed them that the government
was willing' to reimburse them for
certain burial expense* Incurred, and
aaked that an Itemized statement be
submitted to the bureau. When the
Statement arrived at the Washington
office of the Veterans" Bureau, it was
found to oover the erection of a tomb,
built by the boy's father, at a ooet
of $98.(5. No mention of actual buritl
charges was made, and since the gov
ernment cannot, due to legal restric
tion, pay for mausoleums and tombs
built by the deceased's family, the
Speaks family oould not be reim^
bureed for the ftS.85 expended.
The insurance money is accruing In
the bureau, and since both parents
claim dependency upon the ion, but
are unwilling to prove their conten
tion, the (10 additional per month
has never been paid.
Other cases are on record in the
bureau where checks have been re
fused because they would be tragic
reminders of the one that was gone.
And checks have been refused even
by wealthy beneficiaries, who de

Postmaster Geperal Interested in
Possibilities for Service.
Postmaster General Work Is Inter
ested In th? possibilities of broad
casting- postal information by means
of the radio telephone. During "Postal
Improvement week," beginning- May
1, it is likely that such Items may be
sent out from the radio In the Post
Office Department.
At the same time Dr. Work advises
postmasters everywhere to take ad
vantage of radio possibilities during
"Postal Improvement week" and tali
the public all about the service. The
first talk might be entitled, "The
Travels of a Letter," he suggests.
The self-satisfied people who feel
that they have nothing more to
learn, may have a lot to unlearn.
