For some time past much interest

were agreed to and so far as the pub

indications there was likely to be
some fun in sight. Then O. H. Barber

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.

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.
"The Germans feel ut leasl that
they are conquered, abased and pow
erless, but the feeling for revenge I«
burning and the war spirit Is not
dead, hut hides Its time. Tlie llohen
zollerni gave Germany Itornan pres

und that they alwuys Htood for every
thing of which the German Is most
proud, it, the meantime cure will

they hail In Ihe past und any Hohen -
