I TIMES EDITORIALS I I The World's Supreme Horror fl 111 l BY HERBERT QUICK. 111 l "0 Keeper of the Sacred Key, HP "And the Great Seal of Destiny, In "Whose eye is the blue canopy, HI! "Look down upon this warring world, and tell us what the end will be!" 111 180 wrote a soldier 6f the Oiril war, under the inspiration of our puny tittle conflict. He | thought it was the limit of man's capabilities in war. || How far beyond hiiinan language or hinnan thought is this world-crisis' Poetry falls flat. y Homer could not have grasped it. Shakespeare Would have been stricken dumb by it. Milton's | "Battle in Heaven" does not rise to the foothills of it. Goethe's soul would have cowered be I fore it. If! No human mind except that of the writer of the Book of Job or Revelation could cope with it; || and if out of the whirlwind could come a Voice capable of dealing with it, or it' the heavens should I open and dictate to some John the Divine the epic of this war, no human soul could endure the || dreadful message. I]! Like a bight of thrown rope a line runs on three sides of Warsaw. It is a military investment; | but it is unimaginable in horror. It starts on the Baltic sea, and running southwards, ends near the Black sea, nearly a thou || sand miles away. It is a double line, and the two sides of it are engaged in one constant battle, as IN much greater than Waterloo or Gettysburg as the distance from New York to Chicago is greater || than that from Chicago to Kvanston. One line follows the other up, devouring it. The lines are composed of human beings and ma- HI chines. Both human beings and machines are used for only one single purpose —to pierce, penetrate, HI crush and maim human flesh. |jj But the conception is pitifully Inadequate. The Teutonic lines press the Muscovite lines back (j and seek to break, envelope and destroy them; While hundreds of miles away, to the west, in France || and Belgium, and to the south at the Dardanelles, lie other. || The fate of these depends OH the destiny of those. If the Russians are crushed, the Teutonic^ | lines will not be satisfied. They will draw back, hurl themselves westward and southward, and, | on other lines hundreds of miles long resume the struggle. | Can the nations endure it longer? Can they endure the things it will bring, no matter which | way it is decided 1 Can they endure its conseqilenoes running down through the ages? ijl Nothing can ever be as it was before. We Oan never live again as we lived before. America Hi is no longer to lead her frank, free life. And the crisis grows daily more unendurable. When Poland fell, says Campbell: HI "Earth shook, red meteors flashed along the sky, HI "And conscious Nature shuddered at the cry!" HI "Rut what was the downfall of Poland to this? And of this the worst nor half the worst has HI not vet come. It is beyond language, beyond pity, beyond our ability to conceive or feel.
