Baltimore Advertising Club Is today
of the opinion that a detailed account
of their banquet last night publish

German trenches would do a lot to
ward weakening the morale of the
Huns. Patriotic rror characterised
the gathering fron start to finish.
Different phases of the war and
the relation of Americans to the
struggle were discussed by the editor
of The Washington Times, James
Schermerhorn, publisher of the De
troit Times, and Ma. Gen. "Joe"
Kuhn, commander at Camp Meade.

The editor of The Times declared
that the Intelligence of the allies
would win the war.
The editors, the reporters, and
special writers," he said, were not
called In by the Treasury Department
when the Liberty loan was floated,
but skilled advertising experts were
asked to aid In the preparation of
slogans and appeals to the public.
'It Is neither the goose-step nor
men that win wars.1 he said, "but In
telligence. The brains of Lincoln and
Lee fought the civil war, and neither
wore curled mustaches nor bore
death's heads on their hats.
"Greece gave Intelligence to Rome,
and Rome gave It to France; France
gave It to England, and England to
America. And, combined." said the
speaker. "England, France, and the
United States will send It to Berlin."

committee which has charge of the
Inquiry Into the St. Paul speech of
Senator La .Follette.

St. Paul speech.
Inasmuch as Senator La Follette
has demanded and has been promised
that he be allowed to cross-examine
witnesses. It Is recognized there may
be "an animated exchange between
him and Mr. Bryan.
Senator La Follette Is expected to
demand that the State Department
produce all the documents bearing on
the Lusltanla case. Whether the
State Department will do so Is doubt
ful, as It might hold that such action
would not be In the public Interest.
