Along this line the World story con

GERMANY UNDER THE TREATY
(BY G. LOWES
(Mr, Lowes Dickinson, who has
Just returned from a visit to Ger
many, In which he has had ample
oporlunity to gauge the conditions
of nr.: there, describes in the Man
chester Uuardlan the tragic effect
of thtf war and of the peace condi
tions on the health of the people.)
It is unfortunate but Inevitable that
when you punish a nation you have to
begin with the infants and children. It
seems, too, at first sight unjust, since
they were not born when the crime was
committed. But, as we know, the sins
of the fathers are visited on tho chll
dren, and when We play Providence we
must adopt the principles of Provi
dence. As 1 write these words there
He on my table reports from all over
Germany on the condition of the chil
dren In the big cities. It Is always the
same story underfeeding, rickets, skin
disease, tuberculosis. This, to begin
with, Is a legacy of the blockade. The
blockade was lifted, not at the armi
stice, but some months later. But the
underfeeding continues owing to the
economic conditions perpetuated or
produced by the treaty, it Isrecorded
statistically in the weight and height
of the children and In the number and
the seriousness of cases of disease In
May, 1920. it was calculated that of the
three million odd children from the
great cities over two hundred thousand
were tuberculous, over eight hundred
thousand badly undernourished, over a
million sick. Of tho children In Berlin
at the beginning of 1920, 25 per cent,
had no overcoats, 28 per cent, no shoes
In many families the children must
stay in bed all day because they have
no clothes to put on. In many families
no clothes are obtainable for new-born
Infants. In certain districts of Thurln
gia, the children from their third year
on, get no milk at all, and expectant
und nursing mothers get so little that
permanent injury to their Infants Is un
avoidable. The Destitution of the Workers.
When you punish a nation the chil
dren, as I have said, will be your first
victims; next will come the very poor,
then the poor, then the middle class.
The well-to-do you are hardly likely
to reach. You certainly will not leach
those who are really responsible for
what you are punishing the proprietors
and editors of prosperous newspapers,
tho war profiteers, tne generals, tho
statesmen the crowned heads. The
kaiser lives comfortably In Holland,
and Ludendorff and Hlndenburg flour
ish at home. But the mass of the peo
ple In Germany are sunk Into a kind
of living death. Did they make the
war? Did they prolong It? The notion
la absurd; They did what almost every
man believes to be the duty of all men
they offered to their country In the
hour of need the sacrifice of nil' they
had, I
The sufferings of the people of Ger
many date back to the blockade. And
what the blockade really meant Eng
lishmen have always refused to con
sider. They are now aware that It won
the war. They are aware that their
fleet was used to starve the population
of Germany. But they do not allow
their Imagination to dwell on what tha:
process meant. If they did. they would
see that the cruelty of the submarine
wor was at least not worse thsn the
long-drawn horror of the blockade.
An official report thus sums up. In
the terms which appeal most to modern
men. terms of money, the losses causi .1
to Germany bv the blockade:
By death of 7M.O0O civilians. D.400,

By the cost of feeding them up again.

I do not know that history has ever
presented a more dreadful little bill
thsn this. The figures ran hardly pre

convey are real, and oevond Imagina

eQrmans. We might remember It
sometimes and debit It against our

Wsoei and Price.
A general Idea of German lvrty Is
given bv the calculation of a careful
statistician that while price have
risen in Germany to ten time the
pre-war rste. wsges have risen
onlv six times, snd salarleo from
feur times to twice. These flgulea rep
resent only general average, snd
cover very wide variations There

men and perhaps whole trsdes that ars
well off, but the elstement shows what
all Inquiry In detail bears out a fall
In the stsndsrd of life of all classes
that csn only be cslled catastrophic.
The fall Is moat striking In the mid
dle class, to which we shsll return Hut
It Is more serious in the working class
because there It Is reflected not only
In lose of comfort, leisure, and re
finement, but In sctual destitution.
Take a concrete case. In Berlin the
planss for Christmas Day. The rest ol
affairs that have been carried out in
past months have offset this unhappl
ness. Some time ago on a Sunday gloomi
ness stalked through the ranks of the
Immigrants. There was much crying
and general sadness. Folks outside
were happy In the freedom from oares
of business. But something was miss
ing within the walla of Ellis Island.
Plenty of Music.
Officials got busy and Instituted a
series of concerts. The happiness ba
rometer has gone up about 100 per
cent. Borne of the greatest actors in
New York have put on acts on the
island.
The bands will play Christmas Eve
and Christmas day. And the entertain

day food will be served.
It's going to be a wonderful Christ

cost of the bare necessaries of life
for a family of four Is estimated as at
least 300 murks a week. But the weekly
wage of tramway drivers Is somewhere
about 200 marks a week. There are
trades worse paid and trades better
paid, and wages and costs, of course,
vary In different districts. The miners
are among the best paid, and very
likely an indignant visitor from the
upper clusses might find a lucky bache
lor living in what he would consider
shameful luxury. ' But a miner with a
family of seven lives in something
like destitution; and M. Jouhaux, the
French labor leader, has recently
stated, after a visit to the German
mining districts, that one cause why
production Is not further Increased is
that the miners are underfed.
Severe Unemployment.
Even If everyone In Germany was
fully employed a large number of peo
ple would be underfed, underhoused,
and underrlothed at the present rates
of wages snd prices. But, In fact, there
Ib a larger measure of unemployment,
how large, precisely, there are no
figures to show. The official statistics
for tho empire give only the numbers
of those both wholly unemployed and
receiving the unemployment allowance
from public funds. .The number ot
these was about 400,000 on Oct. 1. But
this figure does not give a complote
account even of those wholly unem
ployed. And In addition to these there
la a very largo number employed only
for part of the day or week. There
Is no way of. ascertaining accurately
the number of these, though, under new
regulations, statistics should he avail
able In a month or two. Meantime,
after Inquiry and discussion with those
best Informed, I think I may say that
one and a half million would be likely
tu be an understatement and two mil
lions not likely to be. an overstatement
of the whole number not In full em
ployment. There used to be a form of torture
which consisted in piling weights on a

Ih what the allies are doing to Ger
many. The people are under a press,
and- every now and again the prlmo
ministers of England and France give
another turn to the screw. What Is
squeesed out of the press Is something
very terrible the blood of little chil
dren, the tesrs of despairing mothers,
nnd the foam on the Hps of rabid men.
And from that mixture rises like a
mist the very spectre the allied gov
ernments desire to conjure- the spectre
of bolshevlsm. For, ss Mr. Keynes has
grimly remarked, "men will not al

THE CLOSING DUE-BILL
Nineteen twenty took Ita time before uncoiling, but on tha verge
of passing out It took mora than one healthy crack at various cham
pions. For example, the official American league average, which have
lately appeared, ehow that Ty Cobb ranka tenth among the regulars,
the only time In fourteen yeara he baa been below second place.
The vital statistics show that Blsler. Speaker, Jackson, Ruth, Coi
ling, Jacobaon, Tobln. Rice and Felsch all stand above the Georgian,
who finally slipped below .340.
ONLV A STARTER
And then, just before the year closes out, one Joseph Btecher steps
into a headlock applied by a Mr. Lewis.
It took six successive headlocks to convince Lewis that he wasn't
working on concrete, but th result was enough to drop Btecher from
Ihe main rampart
Nineteen twenty took his title away Just before 1921 steps in.
Tho fading year then looked around for another victim, and as
Ruth was idle and Man o' War out of harness, decided to pick on
Jack Dempsey.
Dempsey didn't lose his crown, but he had It Jolted over on his left
ear, and thereby dropped several bundles ot prestige and renown.
On this day a year ago the champion waa a man killer. But Bill
Brennan put a dent la his halo, if he didn't win.
Bill proved that the champion was practically numan ana uiai sorry)
one may stop him without being a superman.
Benny Leonard got by nicely "Babe" Ruth and Man o' War ceased
firing before the old year had another crack for the worst it could do
to Ruth was to show by the published records that he had struck out
more times than any man In his league a matter of eighty occasions,
to be exact.
But th 'Babe's" fifty-four homers squared that account.
L. H. B. You are right beyond debate. No big eastern university
has a right to offer a game to any of the larger western universities
unless a home-and-home arrangement Is taken up. The larger western
universities have Just a much right to expect Harvard or Yal to come
west without a return game in the east There Is no longer any royalty
of the gridiron.
Could Lewis have thrown Frank OotchT Possibly, but we doubt it
fjotch at his best was Just as big, faster and more versatile. He also
possessed mort native cunning. Many a few months ago rated Btecher
abov Ootch, but their opinions changed after the recent Lewis match.
Qotch stood alone in his time. It may be that his time carried fewer
good wrestlersi but Hackenscbmldt was no dummy.
When a boxing promoter can take In $145,000 In gate receipts from
bis public and still lose money on the ahow, th ridiculous price paid
fighters becomes even more apparent. Dempsey was certainly not worth
any $100,000 for a Brennan match. Th fact that b could get it
doesn't max him worth It Brennan received a bigger purs for losing,
than old-time champions ever dreamed or getting for beating up rugged
challengers. As long a promoters continu to fall for fancy purses
and to overpay every fighter conoerned. they are putting a heavy crimp
In the game.
Dempsey and Brennan were paid $136,000. The public had to be
charged accordingly. Fifty thousand dollars split at the ratio of $85,000
and $15,000 would have been big pay for this fight, with th admission
reduced by the same comparative Span.
