He related experiences of the Ameri can delegates with the German ad ministration of occupaton and sad that despite the depth of feeling which he had from two and a half years of intimate experience with the ruling classes of the German peop.e, be was not prepared to say that the German race was beyond redemption or that it was not the duty of the allied coun tries to endeavor to build up that people to such decency as would war rant their admittance into the League of Nations. “There is perhaps one step out standing today in their progress in that direction more lacking than any other,” sadi Mr. Hoover, “and that is, total abstinence from any expres sion of regret. If the 70,000,000 of Germans were to shed the tears of Niobe for the next 1,000 years they could not wash away the human mis ery for which they have been respon sible in Belgium and northern France alone.” 1 -o- !
