GERMANS DESERVE NO PITY.
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
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
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
It was these same German
who endured hardships
and suffering to help the kaiser murder
who gave their husbands, their sons and
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?

Never A Night Before Away

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

They are dwelling in a strange land tonight,

But across the mud and the snow a light

ready for whoever will come in to claim them.
Friendship dwells in the hut; keep its warm

IE GERMANY HAD WON.
It is certain that the terms which the
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
when Germany squeals she can be quick
ly silenced by an exhibition of the trea
ties of Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest.—

American soldiers started it.

President Lindley telegraphed Mr.
Edmundson after receiving the telegram

prominent athletes. 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 :
