GERMAN PEOPLE TAUGHT THEY'RE SUPER-CREATION Frightful Moral Standing Among Modern Nations Prof. Von Tyne's Theme. ADDRESSES TEACHERS AT THE HIGH SCHOOL Antagonism to Ideals of Democracy Foundation of German Conduct. Germany's frightful moral stand ing in the scale of modern nations, iher unprecedented brutalities on hu manlty, and the reasons for her at tempted domination of the world, were 'discussed yesterday afternoon before the public school teachers of Bridge port at the High School in a masterly and convincing address by Prof. C H. Van Tyne, head of the department of history of the University of Michi gan Professor Van Tyne discussed the antagonistic ideals of autocracy and democracy and also the true founda tions of German frightfulness, which is a state with no moral obligations. He : showed clearly and convincingly that Germany's method of terrorism is but the expression of what had been taught throughout German academic and social life for nearly 50 years. Germany's philosophies, religion, lit erature, science and history, and even her geography .arithmetic and lan , guage all teach that they must force themselves on the world. It could be proven positively, the speaker affirmed, that Germany had COL, THOMPSON CONFERS WITH RECRUIT HEADS Boston, June 12-Col. W.E.

EXTRA SPECIAL $.89 plans completed for nearly 15 years to i National Army and National Guard utrike hard in the game of war, aim for world dominion and crush any na tion that opposed her ambition. Ger man authorities on national ideals and philosophy, he quoted, show that "we Hohenzollerns take our spirit from 'God and must give account of our her itage to Him. In times of danger di vine providence has always sent a Ho henzollern. The German soul is God's soul." Professor Van Tyne said that in 1900 the Kaiser declared, "nothing should be settled in this world with out the intervention of the German emDeror." Also that the Teutonic race believes it is called upon to make all other races servile. The speaker showed how the Ger man people had been taught as a na tion that they are a super-creation of ; mankind; that they must force the German language on the world, and aim tiget possession of Africa, the East, Central Europe and the West so as to have an empire commensurate with their power. They were not to mind such things as the Monroe Doc trine, treaties and international boun daries; simply take whatever was in the German scheme of world domin ion. Kaiser Wilhelm has written in his diary, "considering myself an instru ment of the Lord I heed not the preaching of the day but go my way!" Both Bismarck and Frederick the i Great boasted of their skill in deceit. Dr. Van Tyne said. The speaker told of the years he spent in Germany, sWOying under three of that nation's most eminent scholars, and of the impressions gain ed while there. He went to Germany, he said, thinking no country equal to : it. As he came to appreciate her government and to study the German people, however, the conviction grew upon him strongly, he said, that the i content of the German people was at the expense of their freedom; they 'were so over-awed by militarism and autocracy. In Germany, he said, the State .knows no moral obligation. Courtesy, decency and the spirit of humility are not expected, unless they have eco nomic value and pay the State. Living among the Germans was al most uncanny, he said, so sure were they of their divine right and supe riority. Their strength is a strength without restraint, he emphasized, and ;he thought the sooner the world knew this fact the better it would be for all Professor Van Tyne showed that the leading modern nations of the world have for centuriestbeen trying to make war chivalrous, but Germany mean while was teaching that terrorism is a necessary principle in war. Ambas sador Gerard, the speaker said, shows in his recent book that Germany has for 50 to 60 years taught moral ter rorism in both her academic and so cial life. Dr. Van Tyne said that America loves success, while Germany loves terrorism; that Germany had boasted she could conquer the world with her 87.000,000 population, but America with her 100,000,000 would make im possible that cherished dream, he be lieved. . He compared the gift of Germany to the American government of a statue of Frederick the Great, to the (gift toy France of the Statue of Lib erty, and showed how truly were those gifts representatives of the givers: Germany, divine right and egotism; France, liberty, equality and frater nity. "If brave, bleeding, glorious France, and courageous, stalwart England are (starving into submission America I must go on," he exclaimed in closing. i "We must give up all our energies, if need be, to see to it that the world is made safe for democracy Prof. C. H. Van Tyne of Michigan ! University, received his education in ' both American and German univer Isities, and for some time lectured in .French universities for the Harvard foundation. He is an editor of the "American Historical Review," a fel low of the Royal Historical Society of Great Britain, and the author of sev eral histories.

Harry Peatt, a member of the New Canaan police force, is undergoing treatment Dor a bite received by a mad dog last week. The dog, a Bos ton bull, was originally owned 'by Charles M. Griebel, but had been stolen or strayed away several months ago, and recently returned. Mr. Peatt had the dog in his care for two days. It did not want to eat, but drank wa ter frequently. On Saturday, Mr. IPeatt held the dog by the front feet at arm's length, to determine, if pos sible, the cause of its peculiar actions. Almost immediately the dog sprang for his face, biting him in the lip, and was frothing at the mouth when pulled away. Later, while riding in company with Dr. Rogers, the dog sprang at the wind-shield of the car, and it was then that it showed signs of rabies. The dog was shot by Dr. Rogers. The head was sent to New Haven for examination, and wordt was received that the dog had a pos itive case of rabies. Mr. Peatt is at present under Pasteur treatment. SPRAGUE 1GE & COAL CO PEALKRS nr .
