New York, March 7. Again taking
up its expose of alleged pro-German
propaganda, the Morning World to

and McLemore resolutions in con
gress were backed by the National
German-American Alliance.
The World names Alphonse G.
Koelble, a New York attorney, as
head of the clearing house of the
alliance and declares T. L. Marealis,
a New York real estate operator, is
the leading lobbyist directing the
work at Washington.
The World reproduces what is de
clared to be a letter from Marsalis,
reporting to Koelble as to his work
in the interest of the armed ship re
solutions and telling of the senators
and congressmen he conferred with.
The letter declared Marsalis believed
Senator Stone was opposed to Wilson
and Lansing. Gore, O'Gorman and
Hitchcock (Neb.) were mentioned
as opposed to Lansing.
