SINS, SAYS PASTOR
'Germany's sins have damned her
through the ages."
This is the opinion of the Itev. James
L. Gordon, pastor of the First Congrega
tional Church, who, last night, read a
bitter Indictment of Germany Iniquity.
Takelng as his theme "How Germany
Lost Her Soul." the pastor' set forth to
a throng, of whom many wore the uni
form of the United States, a chronologi
cal list ot German atrocities.
"The devil In the depths of hell would
blush for shame at some ot the things
that Germany has done In this war,"
the preacher said. "Firing on men and
women struggling in Icy waters and
then shelling rescuers who answer dls
tress signals sent out by the Germans
themselves, is but a part of the Hun
method. To make a living shield of
women and -children for German troops
Is an example ot their vaunted efficiency.
