The Fading Hope The most porplexinq question of the hour is how to curl") war-like people agiuns its will and thus to assure pciicc to the rest of the world *"x mi The ])eople are- the Germans, who two thousand years ago were among the most dreaded foes of the Roman armies, and 111 whose veins still seems to flow the lust of battle just as it did then. In every other respect, their progress has been marvelous indeed but they arc still lovers of war and if the signs are read aright, they do not mean to give it up merely be cause of theii iccenl del eat &•:?! When we remember that it took all the rest of the world to beat them, we can see the danger of al lowing them to regain their strength. A (iermany that is peaceable will have a welcome place in the family of nations but a Germany that is warlike must in some way lie kept weak and help less. This gives us a clue as to the real meaning of the enormous in demnity that is being demanded If we find ourselves a little lm p'atient with France that she is so relentless in her demand that the utmost possible amount be wrung from her fallen enemy, we shall do well to remember that she is Ger many's next door neighbor and certain to be the first victim of her rage in th» new war, which to some already appears to te inevitable in other nations would be the not very distant future. Other Ways to Peace In thejnninds of some there is another and a better way ol keep ing Germany in weakness than that ol laying a great indemnity upon her. It is to lorbid the man-! ufactuie by her oi armament and nation warfare, it is held she virtually helpless and so would never (hire to precipitate another conflict. j,' The plan would doubtless prove eflective ii it could be carried out but while it is true that she is sub mitting to such a demand ju. now, we may be sure that after a few jears when the agents and sol diers of the^ allies will have been withdiawn, the will resume the .manufacture ol the forbidden ar ticles on some such scale as in the past. 1 It is obvious that 110 such de 'mand could be enlorced for long and so this plan, like others thilt have been suggested, seems im practicable. wi Theie is still a third alternative. Some hold that leniency and Chris tian kindness on the part of the allies wouldfactually work the de sired transformation in the Ger man nature and ideals, thus ac complishing what can never be done by force or diplomacy. The trouble is again that it seems to be a case where mercy might easily lead to the destruction of those ex tending it and so long as there is genuine reason to doubt the result, no nation can be expected to incur the risk arising from the adoption of such a policy, ^elf-preservation is the first law of nations as it should be and so long as Germany adheres to her warlike faith, no na- Problems, measures and events of interest to her as mother, home mak er and citizen. tion will probably be found trying to make her cup of woe less bitter.

The hist move that such an as sociation oi nations would have to make would be to forbidthe man ufacture of arms and munitions of war by private individuals or firms anywhere in the world. It is here that the mischief really begins for there is every, evidence that very much ot the ill-will and bitterness among nations is secretly stirred up by the makers of death-dealing implements in order to create a market lor their wares.
