BACKSET TO PEACE SEENJNGERMANY War Now Unlikely, Buts ‘•Blunder” in Election D*' of First Magnitude. BV FRANK H. SIMON OS. BERLIN. May 7. —The first and perhaps the natural question follow ing the announcement of the German election has been everywhere. "Does it mean another war?" Obviously the choice of Hindenburg cannot mean war in any present time for two compelling reasons. In the first place. French troops are still in the Ruhr as well as the Rhineland, and in the second place. Germany, despite her violations of the provisions of the treaty of Versailles, is too coin pletely disarmed to have any chance in the face of French and polish and perhaps of Czech armies. Actually the election of Hindenburg does not materially change the domes tic political situation. The president, under the Weimar constitution, has relatively restricted powers. A ma jority of the Reichstag are anti monarchial —that is. either Republican or Communist —and even Hindenburg has been chosen by a minority vote, since the combined strength of the. Communist and Republican candidates exceeds his by a million. The Luther* Stresemann cabinet, which remains in power, is pledged to maintain the republic and committed to a policy of peaceful .settlement with the allies. Intensifies Party Strife. What then does the election of Hindenburg promise or, perhaps bet ter, threaten? So far as German domestic aitairs are concerned, an intensification of party strife, the shifting of allegiances of voters as between parties, and not impossibly some modification of the attitude of parties themselves. Materially and outwardly, the change may be slight, hut morally and within the fiel.l of domestic relations, it must on the contrary be very great. Beyond all else the German repub lic is compromised. To he sure, the monarchists remain in a minority, and even this minority is divided as oe tween Prussian and Bavarian candi dates for the throne, but it is idle to blink the fact that while a ma jority of the men and women who voted for Hindenburg are as eager for peace as those who voted for Marx, the men who were behind the Hinden burg candidacy are the old gang who made the World War, who learned nothing during the struggle, and who ‘continue to nourish all the old ideas and ambitions which set Europe afire 11 years ago. In the conception of this bold order the election of Hindenburg is the first step in the restoration of the Ger Armstrong’s Hand-Set Stack and Cream Tile Pattern No. 255 Let them dance forever— this NEW floor can stand it!

It is these leaders I who have protested the recent pro | posals of Luther and Stresemann, looking to the consolidation of peace in the west of Europe by a mutual security pact. These are the Voices which protested abandonment of any claim to Alsace-Lorraine. These are the voices which continue to preacli a war of revenge against France. Therefore, while the election of Hin ! denburg does not mean immediate | war. no permanent peace is possible I while the men who forced his can didacy control in Germany. if the buccess of Hindenburg means, as they hope, the first step in the restoration of a kaiser and of the old order, then all dreams of peace are idle dreams; with these men peace is impossible. Moreover, one thing the election of Hindenburg must mean, and that is the postponement, if not the aban donment, of all pending discussions and negotiations of peace pacts, se curity guarantees given by Germany and all discussions of the limitation of armaments whatsoever. It should, one would imagine, also interrupt all consideration of new loans to Ger many. which would patiently be made at terrific risks. Question of Investments. A Germany whose domestic relations j are not clouded by the practical cer tainty of a terrific and sustained i struggle between monarchist and re publican and whose foreign relations are similarly compromised by the ap prehension the election returns must excite in Paris, Warsaw, Brussels.

Thai the mass of the voters who decided for Hindenburg voted with any conception of bringing on war seems equally pre posterous. A variety of factors com bined to make possible one more tragic example of the German inability to understand the outside world. Believed Vole Would Help. I do not question that many such voters believe the very name of Hin denburg would awaken respect and a little fear in the outside world. That his election would restore shaken German prestige abroad, that somehow' Germany would obtain un der the presidency of the field mar shal what it did not gain under the late Fritz Ebert, who was no more than a saddler by trade.

But what was possible for a Republican Ger many Is not possible for a Germany of Hindenburg. who, though himself a lay figure, inadequately conceals the old Potsdam crowd behind him.

I, - - ' PULLMAN CARS ARE NOW ROLLING ROLLOF HONOR Hew Group Bears Irish and Scotch Hames Tamed in Song and Story. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK. May 7.—Pullman cars are receiving group names to designate the type and accommoda- ■ tions of the car. The information, made public to day, was contained in a reply by EJ. P. Carry, Chicago, president of the company, to an inquirer, who noted that all the cars on a train arriving at Grand Central Station bore names such as Mcßride, McGrath and Mc- Donald. Mr. Carry revealed that of the 5.386 Pullman cars, 335 belong to the "Me group." About half the cars bear Irish names, he said, and the other half Scotch, resulting in con gratulations from both races. • "In this rolling roll of honor.” he added, "appear names of characteis famous in song and story. These names as they are whirled from one end of the country to the other are a constant reminder of achievements, honor and renown.” Gets Lieutenant’s Commission. John R.
