German in the Schools
r
NEW YORK, Dec. 24.?A nationwide
campjaign is being condu teed by
the American Defense Society to
eliminate the teaching of German in;
the schools throughout the United
States. In a letter vm.-en the p-inci- j
pals of public schools, private schools!
and colleges throughout the country,j
i the society urges that French, Italian, |
Spanish and Russian should be giver.'
prominence in the curriculum with a,
view tb strengthening trade relations
between these countries; The letter
j which is signed by Dr. William T.
Hornaday, reads:
"Reports afe rife that with the'
j ending of the war ther is to be an attemtp
to force upon our American
j youin the language of the people.
| whose hands are stained with the
! blood of their fathers and brothers, j
Tne German language has been used i
as a weapon directed at the heart of!
America by German propagandists. It j
is the opinion tff many of our pror-ul- i
nent educators that German is not an j
essential in any course of study, and |
it is to hoped that our American |
youth will not permit its being forced !
; upon them for any reason whatso- :
ever. The next five years will witness
a crystallization of educational
opinion and upon that crystallization
will depend the future of American
education.
"For those who would study a language
for its futhre utility the choice j
lies betwen French, Spanish, Italian
and Russian as our trade relations i
with these countries will be increased I
immeasurably now that peace is in
sight To study German would be to
condone the atrocities perpetrated by
the people who speak this language."

RED RULE

iher disappointed E%ib was turned away
from their new rulers and upon those
inable to defend themselves. /
Only one class was safe and that was
pomposed of the lowest and worst elements
of society- There was danger
[n a clean collar or a decent appearance
Safety lay in being dirty and I
unkempt. 1 am not referring merely
: the danger to the higher government,
officials under the old regime, the
army and navy officers. They were
either compelled to fleee or hide or
face death. They were beyond the
pale of the law. which meant that
lanyone could kill them with impunity,
lnder the pretext that they were dangerous
to tho ruling powers or tht
they were counter - revolutionaries.
Russia was thus turned into a vast
-hambles.
But there was even as great danger
:o the so-called "Bourgeoisie" or middle
class?the professors, the skilled
mechanics, the small merchants and
shop-keepers, the small land-owning
.'armers, anybody who had a little propsrty.
They were at the mercy of any
Hoodlum or criminal who chanced to
ie in control of the local soviet.
Arbitrary arrests became the order
>f the day, followed by summary exe:utfons,
as well as the official ones
which oearred with appalling regular-:
ity and frequency In the Crimea, in j
:he Oansasus. In the territory of the
Don Cossacks, at Moscow and other
places the first class handed over to
:he mob were the former officers and
the "intelligentsia" comprising the
earned professions and public officers.
At Odessa all the officers, particularly
those or the fleet, were hunted
lown. dragged to the wter front and
thrown into the sea. first having had
weights ip their feet so they could not
swim.
After the- Germans took Odessa and
restored some semblance of order, a ]
woman whose two sons, former Rus-1
>:an naval officers, had been thus I
irowned, desired to have their bodies 1
ecoverei so she could give them Chris !
tian burial. She hired two diiers to '
go to the bottom of the harbor. One j
tame up with his hair turned gray!
