The German people are monarchists at heart and it is more than likely they will turn again to the German princes to re store the country this is the opinion of an expert who ia watching thu de« velopments of politics for the Amert can army. A former university professor, this oificer ic an authority on intcrnatlon al affairs and has access to report* I and Information from all parta of j Germany dally. He has studied close ly the work of ihe German national assembly, ' lie has studied closely the behavior of * tie» Germans slnoe the signing of the armistice. Thu result of that study Is his belief not only t lia t tlie Gorman princes will prob ably come hack, but that the war spirit is still strong among the Ger mans and spirit of revenge lives deep down in (heir hearts. He has writ ten Ihe following summary of the sit uation as he sees It: "Germany Is taking care cot to change her system too much. This might bo expected In a people who are monarchists at heart. Unless (ho kaiser and the crown prince had ab dicated the allies might have de manded their surrender. This would have been the greater blow to Ger man pride thun any condition which has been imposed and would have caused a deape rate resist anc>>. The abdication saved Germany from this so that now the kaiser U regarded as a martyr for his country and tho crown prince shares this glory. Of course the independent, socialists and Ihe Hpurtacua group would like to treat the Holicnzollcrus as tho Bol sheviks treated the Itomanoffs, but. apart from that the general feeling I is of loyalty. ' Vlen will die by thous ands for a blnk, nobody ever died for a friend.' And that little suying ban much truth in Germany today.
