the view expressed by some writ

out that the great victory over the
central powers was not achieved
by any one nation, but by all the
nations engaged on the side of the
entente alliance. Of at least five
of these nations, or probably six,
each at some critical moment dur

One word more. The socialist
party and the social democratic party
of Germany today include thousands
of men who do not accept the funda
mental doctrines of German socialism
or bolshevism. They are political
parties and as such are primarily a
protest against the oppression and
injustice of the autocratic dynasty,
by which Germany has been crushed.
They are united in political protest
against a political system whose over
throw they jointly seek. The mem
hers of these parties, perhaps a
majority of them, would repudiate
the economic and social doctrines of
German socialists. It remains to be
seen whether by intrigue, as in the
case of the bolsbeviki of Russia,
fanatics who hold to the fundamental
theories of German socialism get con
