Yesterday the world listened to the
demand of President Wilson for the
preservation of the rights of mankind
everywhere, for the observance of in

President Wilson told congress that
he had given Germany irrevocable no
tification that the United States will
break off diplomatic relations if Ger
many's illegal submarine campaign is
He asked no action of Congress but
simply informed it of the accumula
tion of facts proving that Germany's
assurances to the United States are
being violated, that the submarine
campaign despite the earnest protests
of the United States is being conduct

manity and that he means to sever
relations unless it is brought within
The president's note to Germany
made public late yesterday was final
It marks the end of diplomatic ex

The return of a presidential cam

to the origin of the elephant as the
emblem of the Republican party. The
elephant was first used to signify the
Republican party by Thomas Nast,
the famous cartoonist, in November,
1874, the cartoon labeled "An ass,
having put on the lion's skin roamed
about in the forest and amused him
self by frightening all the foolish
animals he met in his wanderings."
