GeaeroJ Maurice, important in
England, says Germany is so
thoroughly beaten that the talk of
war from Germany now is silly.
The chief business of the allie?-,
for whom all Germany must work
fer years to come, says he, is to
prevent revolution and destniction
of the present German govern
ment, which means to pay If it can.
"The only means which the al
lies have of obtaining from Ger
many their demands is to assist
by all means in restoring German
industries. "
There are sixty millions of Ger
mans who for a long time will
work practically as serfs of the
conquering nations.
If you had sixty million slaves
or serfs working for you, yoa
would see to it that they had

materials to work with.

Palmer went to work with the aim
of providing "plenty of sugar at a

This fsir price is likely to be 12
