LETTER TO EDITOR AN IMMIGRANT'S VIEW Editor Day Book:A lesson in history to the Hearst's politicians' clique. (By-an immigrant from Rus sia.) , I am not sure if you will be able to print in your paper the few words I am sending to you. The main cause, I suppose, will be the language used by me. I realize that I am not a specialist in the English language. No wonder. I am not quite a year in this country and never knew about the English language before. But the fact that I am a short time in this country doesn't matter. I am watching the life of this country with still more interest because it's new for me. . The subject I wanted to touch here is the proposed intervention of the United States in the Mexican home affairs. There won't be any discov ery on my side. I simply intend to bring up a fact from the history of the French revolution., History is the experience of nations in their strug gle for development, and the Ameri can politicians from American-Examiner clique don't seem to realize the value of it in the present social and political life of any nation. That what I wanted to point out is the sit uation in France in 1791. It was three years after the French revolution broke out. The revolution was coming to an end. Then came the intervention of the European coalition. The monarchs of Europe gathered in Pilnitz and gave out, the 27th of August, 1791, the famous-in-history declaration, in which they said that their duty was to rebuild the old slavery system and return peace to France. Every one of you knows, probably, the results of that interference. It was fine peace given to France and the whole of Europe by that inter vention (?). "With that declaration began in Europe those wars which continued for 25 years. This inter ference brought a lot of catastro j)hes to France and whole Europe. The historian of those times (Hul ard) says: "The Pilnitz declaration cost Europe one-fourth of a million of human lives and made impossible the peaceful development of France." This fact ought to be a good lesson for the Hearst clique of politicians who want to send the American boys across the border. It seems that President Wilson knows better his tory than any one of Hearst's clique. P. S; In the same time r-hen I be gan to read and understand English (it was about eight months ago), I began to hate Hearst's newspapers. Henry Shellow, 1507 S. Kedzie. AN UPLIFTED FEELING Nothing gives a person more spirit ual s-tisf action than getting to church on time, once in a while, for a change, and seeing other people come in late.
