Public Diplomacy.
T HEBE is nothing remarkable in the
fact that the demand for full and
free publicity in connection with the
peace conference should have come mainly
from the press representatives of the
United States and Great Britain, while the
press of France, Japan and other coun
tries was disposed to acquiesce in a strictly
limited news policy.
This difference of viewpoint did not nec
essarily indicate that either the govern
ment or the press of any country repre
sented was in favor of 'secret diplomacy"
in the old, evil sense. What they want,
ts presumably just about what the govern-|
ment, press and people of Britain and
America want—an honest international ar
rangement, not qualified and undermined
by secret treaties and understandings, but
adopted in good faith, with the knowledge
and approval of the public in every coun
try concerned.
The difference revealed is mainly one or
method. The Anglo-Saxon idea is to have
everything openly discussed and under
stood, as the plans advance step by step,
the public co-operating with the govern
ment in mutual expressions of opinion, un
til the final, completed program is ready
for adoption. The French idea—we might
almost say, the idea of all the other na
tions—is to have less publicity from clay to
day, less inquiry into the actual processes
by which the peace delegates arrive at
their conclusions, but official statements
from time to time of the conclusions reach
ed, and eventual publication of the com
pleted program.
Thus in either case the diplomacy would
be technically "open," because the whole
world would be informed as to the essen
tials of the treaty.
This difference of procedure, however,
might naturally make a big difference in
the conclusions arrived at. If the public is
able to keep in touch with every important
step taken by the conference from day to
day, the public is far better able to check
up the work of the conference, and to make
sure that its own sovereign will is express
ed. It is ground for congratulation, there
fore, that the conference has yielded con
siderably to the British-American demand
for greater freedom of report and com
ment.
The whole business seems primarily one
of journalistic custom and tradition. Brit
ish and American newspapers are used to
"printing everything." Newspapers in
nearly all other countries print infinitely
less of what we consider "news," and are
far more subject to the reticence imposed
by political and social custom.
The New Isaiah.
r\ PAEAN from the more or less Kev
/A\ «rend* Billy Sunday, anent the rati
Lf\\ fication of the prohibition amend
ment:
"The rain of tears la over. The slums will soon
be a memory. We ■will turn our prisons Into fac
tories, our Jails into storehouses and corncrlbs.
Men will walk upright now, women will smile, chil
dren will laugh, hell will bo for rent."
Maybe this is not literally true. Poetry
and prophecy seldom are. But like all in
spired utterances, it shows the ideal and
the gladsome trend toward its attainment.
tËto let it not be for a reproach to the Bev
erend Billy that he has merely modernized
a great and glorious prophet of old. Could
Isaiah himself have said it better!

MUTE EVIDENCES OF AMERICAN HEROISM
GREET THE TRAVELER IN BELLEAU WOOD
By VICTOR M'NAUGHT. *
Paris, Jan. 27. —(Special Correspondence.)—The gtory
of Belleau Wood, won so gallantly from the Germans by
two and a half regiments of American marines last Juno,
Is known to all, and It Is not my purpose now to tell It
over again. I do wish, however, to give some Impressions
gathered In a visit to the battlefield today.
A small party of newspaper correspondents was con
ducted to the Chateau Thierry region ih military cars by
two American captains, who had been appointed to act as
guides.
We passed through Meaux, .the point nearest Paris
reached by the German hordes ln 1914; we saw Bou
resches and Vaux, literally knocked to pieces by shell
fire last summer, and now Inhabited by a few villagers
who have crept back Into habitations apparently ready to
fall down about their ears.
We qpw great trees along the roadside, felled by the
French last summer In their retreat In order to give
free field of fire for their machine guns and artillery.
Wo srfw miles of barbed wire entanglements, relics of
1914, that stand as grim souvenirs of a time of dread
and terror. We passed along roads pitted with shell holes,
filled with dirt temporarily while awaiting the attentions
of permanent road builders.
Belleau Wood was not the scene of a great battle, but
the engagement has a peculiar interest for Americans be
cause of the exhibition of pluck and determination shown
whlch wa8 defended with (he utmost tenacltv .
was defended with the utmost tenacity.
...
Leaving our cars by the roadside, we entered a field
alongside the wood. Before us was a stretch of the rough
est hillside Imaginable, with trees slashed to pieces, and
with underbrush and broken branches lying everywhere.
We mounted to the top of the hill with difficulty, crawl
ing over fallen logs, dodging shell holes and pieces of
trench, and watching warily all the time for "duds"—un
exploded shells and grenades,
"Be very careful what you Investigate," warned one
of the captains. "An old shell may look very innocent,
but If you handle It, you might not HVe to see Paris
again."
The marines came up to the wood from the southward,
and for three weeks they struggled to drive out the Ger
mans, who were plentifully supplied with machine guns,
and who had plenty of cover behind rocks and trees, it
was a desperately hard fight. The American artillery cut
the woods to ribbons before the marines went In, but the
Germans had hidden in fox pits and little holes they had
dug Into sheltering banks, and were ready. The Ameri
can casualties amounted to at least half of the number of
men engaged.
As we walked over the hill we found many mute evi
dences of what had taken place a few months before.
"Here is a hole where an American boy died," said Cap
tain Miller. "Here is his cartridge belt, Ids canteen, and
some odd bits of personal belongings, Just as they were
left behind."
One of our party gave an exclamation, leaned over and
picked up a bit of water-soaked paper. It was part of a
pocket Testament, no doubt the gift of a mother. All
about lay empty tobacco boxes of tin, bearing names of
brands familiar at home. Close at hand was a book of
cigarette papers.
A few steps further on 1 saw a Un box on the ground.
It had contained shaving powder, and through it two bul
lets had passed. A broken American bayonçt, stained
and rusted, was close by, and a little further a toothbrusn.
On every hand were to be seen little fragments of things
of everyday use.
As we walked further over and down the hill. In the
direction of the gradual German retreat, we found many
grim traces of the former presence of the enemy. Bits of
German clothing and blankets were everywhere, and parts
of black leather belts. In a shell hole lay a German boot.
In another hole we saw the foot of a deceased enemy pro
truding from the ground. In another hoik, a bare skull.
• • •
Gas masks of every kind, left on the ground when their
owners needed them no more, were common. So were un
exploded German potato masher grenades, so called from
their shape. One of the party picked up a number of
empty rifle cartridges, dropped by a German sniper, who
had been downed by one of our men. Unmistakable traces
of his demise were visible. Farther on we found a dis
mantled machine gun, and what was left of a field kitchen.
One of our captains picked up out of a shell hole a
piece of rough, Jagged metal, and told us that it was part
of a high explosive shell. "These things cause terrible
wounds," he said. "One of the most heartbreaking things
in battle was to see one of my boys hopelessly wounded,
fumbling for his emergency kit, and asking me what' he
should do next." Before me on the ground as he spoke,
I noticed an empty tin box that had once contained ban
dages and first-aid appliances, such as every soldier
carries.
On our walk back to the waiting cars we passed a lit
tle cemetery, where 125 American boys He burled. Over
each grave Is a small wooden cross, to which Is attached
a circular blj of sheet metal four or five Inches In diame
ter, bearing a representation of the etars and stripes In
color. Under the flag is the Identification tag. The
crosses stand In straight rows, pitifully dosa together. In
the center of the little plot three rifles are stacked, and
above them waves a small American flag. Borne good
friend has laid a large wreath at the roadside edge of the
plot, and bouquets have been placed In three partly ex
ploded shells. Some day the American people will erect a
monument to those ^»oys In Belleau Wood, now Belleau
Wood no longer, but called by the grateful French people
the Wood of the Marine brigade.
• • •
Sad as are the thoughts evoked by this llttls cemetery,
and others like It In the neighborhood, we cannot forget
how gloriously these young men played the part that was
assigned to them. Americans did not retrXt. There is no
spot In France where one can ssy: "Here the Americans
were beaten, and from this place they fled." No matter
how dlffloult the ground, they went ahead, sometimes
slowly, but always surely, and when the war ended they
had Just brought to a close a campaign In which their
casualties outnumbered those of both Bides at Gettysburg
by three to one. I refer Ho the operations In the Argonne
forest, but that la another story.
