Amen. "FLANDERS FIELD" AND THE ANSWER By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, Canadian Expeditionary Forces In Flanders fields the poppies grow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place ; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved; and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe! To you, from falling hands, we throw The torch. Be yours to lift it high! If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though popies blow a In Flanders fields. In the same measure that we as a nation have been all too lenient in our treatment of those alien enemies whom we catch red- handed acting as spies for the imperial kaiser of hell, so are we also disposed to thoughtlessly underestimate the seriousness of the condi tion which we are pleased to call "Fro-German. What is a 'Pro-German anyway? Let s consider. A "Pro-German," according to the general definition, is one who is in favor of Germany winning the war. But get down to the roots of the thing, and what is he? Nothing more nor less than this : lie is hsympathy with the German methods of warfare. lie believes in the torture of little children. lie believes in the crucifixion of women. He believes in the emasculation of prisoners of war. He believes in wholesale rape. The Gulf Coast Lumberman.

Sleep on, ye brave. The shrieking shell, The quaking trench, the startled yell, The fury of the battle hell Shall wake you not, for all is well. Sleep peacefully, for all is well.

This condition has been reported to the German educational men by various localities, and in some districts remedial measures of considerable severity have already been taken." In Berlin school authorities have requested that orders be given to the police and other guardians of law and order to take energetic measures on their own initiative against all shamelessness, mischief, and roughness on the part of children. The resolution adopted by the Berlin school authorities reads: "In view of the fact that numer ous cases, mentioned at this meeting, have proved that the behavior of school children is becoming increasingly bad, we request that orders shall be given to prevent any restriction of the lawful right of punishment which belongs to the teacher, and to see that the school police intervene much more speedily and energetically."

What would you do, in court, if you were asked to prove some of the statements you make about certain persons? You know you often make assertions which you could not sub stantiate assertions which have come to you from some one who has had no more proof of their truth than you have. In most cases what good has the dissemination of this so-called information done yout Why so anxious to circulate harmful stories while yon never give a thought to passing along the ones which have a good flavor? It is a mean, despicable streak in your make-up. Tou say you are not a fighting man, but if anyone should start a harmful story about you, you would be ready to pummel him on sight. And at the same time you are doing this very thing concerning other men, and it is not unlikely that you have circulated stories about men who are cleaner at heart than you are. no LUTING CONDITIONS IN OCCUPIED BSLOIUII Since the high cost of living is engaging the attention of nearly every person in the United States, the following passages from a pri vate letter, a copy of which has been received by the Belgium High Commission of the United States, from Malines, in the occupied por tion of Belgium, have a special interest.
