The German people deserve no pity and certainly are not entitled to assist ance from the United States or the Allied nations. It is likely true that star vation stares them in the face. But they fought the United States and her Allies until the very last minute—fought until 11 o'clock Monday forenoon—fought for the kaiser who had abdicated Saturday morning and fled from Germany Satur day afternoon. howl now and tell of their starving con dition. Of course they lay the blame for all their misery on the kaiser and the war lords whom they followed blindly as long as they had any hope of victory. The German people were certainly in hearty sympathy with the kaiser in his plans to extend Germany's borders by * conquest and boasted of their new terri tory when Belgium, France and Serbia were outraged. It was the German people, the Ger man men and women, especially the wo men, who followed thê British, Belgian, and French prisoners who were captured in the early part of the war, hurling sticks and stones and abuse at them— calling them "vile English swine" and] spitting in their faces when occasion offered. It was these same German women who endured hardships and suffering to help the kaiser murder who gave their husbands, their sons and their brothers, and rob the people of Belgium, France, Serbia and Russia, ft was these same "gentle dames" of Germany, now said to be starving, who submitted to all manner of privations and suffering to help win the war—for what? For Ger man aggrandizement—for the extension of German trade and to make the kaiser, the greatest murderer the world has known, more powerful. It was these same "gentle dames" and their husbands and brothers and sons ■who helped to plan to have Japan and Mexico attack, conquer and divide the United States between them. How these "starving millions" of which Mr. Rollf tells us in his plea for food, would have rejoiced had the German plan to con quer and divide the United States be tween Japan and Mexico succeeded. How they would have rejoiced had Am ericans been reduced to starvation through the scheming of the kaiser, How much help would the United States have received from Germany, Were Americans starving and if Ger many had plenty? How much help did starving Belgium get from her neighbor, Germany, when that country had #ut taged, robbed and ravished her? The United States had to send food the for any Never A Night Before Away From Home By Bruce Barton The whole town was gathered on the platform that morning to see the train pull out—men and women and children, waving and cheering and trying hard to keep on smiling through their tears. Out of the car windows leaned the boys to wave a last good-bye. Jyst average, clear-eyed country town boys; twenty of them altogether. And seventeen of them had never slept a night away from home before. They are dwelling in a strange land tonight, whose language they cannot understand. But across the mud and the snow a light gleams warm from a hut on the edge of the town, and inside good cheer and happiness are ready for whoever will come in to claim them. Friendship dwells in the hut; keep its warm fires burning bright this winter. Let it he per fectly clear to the men over there that you have not forgotten. :o the men that only a little while ago were boys who had never slept a night away from home. This space contributed by Frank Kelly, Jeweler mans sunk the ships containing that food. i Pa »* IE GERMANY HAD WON. It is certain that the terms which the : I allies will force Germany to accept the final peace settlement will be severe in the extreme, and it is equally certain that whatever German government may then exist will squeal about them. Whatever the final terms may be, though, the people of the allied countries j will probably feel that they are not quite severe enough, for on everv hand thcrc ,s r '-'8 rct t,lat the enemy did not continue fighting until we could carry the war into his own territory. Denied this possibility of giving mili tary punishment to the Hun on his own soil, the allies will exact the greatest possible measure of retribution for wrongs done, and the greatest possible number of guarantees for future good behaviour, bi\t whatever our terms may be they will be just, though stern. But if Germany had won ! The world knows what kind of peace terms would have been imposed. The kaiser himself boasted that the full cost of the war would be levied against "the defeated foe." He declared that the "conquered nations will have to drag the leaden weight of indemnity debts through gen erations to come." The world knows the kind of terms the Germans imposed upon Russia and upon Rumania. The terms which the severe, when Germany squeals she can be quick ly silenced by an exhibition of the trea ties of Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest.— Boise Statesman. isa te ns. Pullman is "all torn up" over the ex pose of a Spokane citizen whose boy died in the Pullman S. A. T. C. The boy's father gave an account of the treat ment he and his boy received at Pull man and claimed there is jealously be tween the army surgeons there as who is the ranking surgeon and that quarrels among doctors and army offi cers goes on while boys die of influ enza and neglect. The story was pub lished in Sunday's Spokesman-Review an ,i filled more than half a page of that paper, Denials, counter charges and signed articles and interviews from Pullman citizens only add to the scandal. an alarming death rate, there being 48 deaths there in a short Pullman had time. The charges made by the Spo kane man ought to he thoroughly inves tigated. Tf they arc true some one ought to be severely punished, charges he has made against some of the doctors are true tliey should be de nied the right to practice. The matter should not be covered up by denials of interested parties. Tf half the Monday night Dr. E. H. Lindley came to The Star-Mirror office and secured a number of copies of the evening paper containing the report of the surrender of Germany. He took these, personally, to the hospitals where S. A. T. C. men are confined and asked the nurses to read the news to the boys. Truly a humanitarian and Christian act. Dr. Lindley regards every boy here as a father regards a son and his work for them is truly grand. No father could do more for his sons than he does for the boys. Sheriff Campbell says he knows about bow the kaiser and several others of Europe who have lost thrones recently feel about it, yet be would not care to trade places with any of them. Jap is right. He still has the respect of the people and is an American citizen, which Incidently Sheriff Campbell has two sons in the army who did their "bit" to help dethrone Kaiser Bill and several other crowned heads of Europe, f- "■. 1 he boys from "over there" will soon be coming back and when they all get home and are furnished a list of those who refused to do their duty in helping with Liberty loan, Red Cross, Y.

The defeat of the German army began on July 15 at Chateau Thierry, where the American soldiers cut three crack divisions of the kaiser's army to pieces in three days of fighting. The retreat began July 18 and ended Nov. 11. The American soldiers started it. Latah county raised $903,500 for the fourth Liberty loan. It is now asked to raise $22,000 to provide reading matter, homes and comforts for the boys who whipped the kaiser's army. Latah coun ty is not going to fail. The money must be raised this week. s (a ä Senator Borah evidently believed that the opposition of the woman suffrage leaderswould cut little ice in Idaho. Com plete returns from the recent election show that Senator Borah made a good guess. r ft fs THE "FLU."

He went to the Olympic games in Stockholm as miler and half-miler, was coach of the track team in 1912-15, and was looked upon by the' fellows as-a hero. He was adjutant for two years at the University. Lieutenant BIcamaster says of him : "I was sorry to see Mr. Edmundson leave Idaho.
