JTHE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, TUESDAY. DEC. 4. 1917. GERMAN DOCTOR PLANS TO WORK FOR DEMOCRACY Dr. Christian Sihler, Native of Ft. Wayne, Sees Error of Kaiserism. FORT WAYNE, Ind.. Dec 4. To belp uplift the real German people alter the yoke of Prussian militarism has been cast off by the victory of America and the allies is the aim of Dr. Christian Sihler, a native of Fort Wayne, but born of German parents. So thoroughly is Dr. Sihler imbued with the idea of aiding the Teutons after Prussianisra is no more, that he has forsaken his duties for days at a time as head of a sanitarium In Cleve land. O., to help organize "The Society of Friends of German Democracy." For the last two or tbree weeks, how ever, he has devoted his efforts in be half of this organization to writing and speaking in Cleveland. Dr. Sihlcr's father, a typical German Lutheran, founded St. Paul's Lutheran church in this city. The son was rear ed in the Lutheran faith, grew up In a home where only the Teuton tongue was spoken,, attended German schools and received the finishing touches to his education in German universities and colleges. He later was associated with these same institutions as an instructor. Stories of German atrocities were not believed by Dr. Sihler. who had been reared In the German belief. But he made a visit to the home of his parents, talked with his former asso ciates in the universities and colleges, and saw that the stories of the war were not exaggerated. Becomes Pro-Ally In an interview while here recently, he said then he realized the teachings of the pulpit and press for the years even while he was in Germany had been all to instill in the hearts of Teu tons that they were meant to domin ate the world. During the course of the war, until shortly before Amer ica's entrance, Dr. Sihler was intense ly pro-German. With these revela tions to him he become pro-ally just as strong, and following the broad statements of President Wilson at the outset of the war, he with others be gan a movement to aid the real Ger mans get rid of Prussianism after the war. Even before America declared war, Dr. Sihler started making speeches in behalf of the movement lie now is fostering. His sister, who is in Ger many, was thrown in prison as a spy, when it was learned her brother was doing this work in America. Not a word has he heard from her for months and her fate is unknown to him. In spite of this fact, Dr. Sihler is keeping up his work and says one of the needs of the world when Prussian ism has been crushed will be to help restore the real Germans, who will be glad to have a democracy and rid of the rule of the kaiser and his ilk. C. E. Sihler. a local banker, is the brother of Dr. Sihler. MARY'S BACK IN LIMELIGHT .
