during a strike, a rumor Tva-fl eprea.d
that the "walk-out" -naa the te1n

iby the Jews. Even articles of -worship
-Were torn open to make certain

has mado an official rciort of the po

la nmaWe to estimate the number of
killed, 'because tho police were busy
all of one nlg-ht removing: corpses
from tho streets of the Jewish quar

pogrom from ha.vin(r even more

still flares, and the Jews oxo seri

- The report of the Zionist Federa
tion of Argentine briefly narrates the
fagots of the renera.l frtrike. and tho
organization of o. "White Guard" by
Bfcwlretvta to Aavo tho land from Bol
eheviism, ,lthoti?rh It speedily became
evident that the alleged "MaximaliKt
'.Revolution" w-as merely an absuri
rumor maiimlfled by the "yellow"
press. The report then says:
. 'Trom tho very too&inning- the dis
order assumed furtl-&emiii-.ic oharaoter.
. The first attatcJes on Jews occurred on
the treets. The White Guard invaded
' the Jewish district ad every Jew, in
fact, every persons who 'looked like a
Jew, was stopped, forutnily beaten,
and Lnagged' off (to the police station.
The 'White Ouard dad -not discriminate

White Guard, amply protected 'by the
police, fljiijS frequently with the lat
ter'a co-operation, organized 'patri

their way through (the Jewish quar
ter, end raided the meeting places of
various Jowish organizations, sacking
them and setting- fire to the furniture
which they piled In the street's. Xot
even the syna-gog-ues were spared, and
In one "Where a number of Jews were
praying, the jolice levelled their mus
kets at the essembly and ordered
them to throw up their hands. They
were eearchet-l but of course nothing
dancceroua was found. The police or
dered phylacteries to (be torn open in
order to make euro that tohey did not
contain dynamite.
"N5t the raiders gave ithelr "atten
tion to Jewish homes. All nlfrht long,
to the accompaniment of incessant
shooting In the distance these rajda
continued on the pretext that Maxi
malists were being hidden from the
police. Houses were wrecked, and
men, women, and children, unmerci
fully beaten. All the men were ar
rested and many women. Hundreds
were taken to the police station in a
dying; condition. Tnere they were de
nied food and drink and some of the
wives and children of the prisoners
who brought food to the men were
beaten and thrown out and warned
that If they returned they would alto
le put In cells. During- the raids
many sick -women and others in del
icate condition, were thrown from
their beds, and toeateji anlil driven,
half-naked, into the streets. Over one
thousand Jews were arretted. The
nunibor Jellied cannot toe ascertained
because the police were busy oil of
one nlgrht removing corpses from tho
streets and burying them In a com
mon grave.
"Due to the official character of the
Zionist Federation and Its prestige in
official and unofficial circles, and the
relations which it has established
with forelg-n diplomats, this organiza
tion was In a position to take ener
getic steps to Wing this reign of ter
ror to an end. The representatives of
the Zionist Federation waited upon
the chief of police of Buenos Aires
and made a successful demand that
these outrag-es on the Jewish popula
tion be ibroug-ht to a speedy end. At
the same time it issued a statement
to the press denouncing the accusa
tion of Bolshevism which had been
hurled against the pogrom victims
and "Which was made the pretext for
these outrages. As a result, the chief
of police Issued an order to au the
police captains to stop the outrages."

The German and the American
Theories of making war have been in
striking contrast.
The Germans expressly defended
thrir right to resort to all sorts of
cruel barbarities. The more women
and children we kill, the more towns
are burned, the more property is de
stroyed, the more women are outrag
ed and deported for slaves, tho
greater the terror of the rpoparlatlons
d gainst which we are fighting. The
mere we terrorize them by these
beastly methods, the quicker they will
yield. And the quicker they yield,
the awner the war is over, and the
suffering stops.
Therefore, they argued, the more
ruel and barbarous we are, the less
suffering we inflict. Thus cruelty
becomes in the long run the most
humane method of carrying on war,
because it ends the war the most
The American theory of making
war is a chivalrous one. It is to
conform strictly to international law,
to show all possible consideration for
non-combatants, to have lercy on
women and children, to succor the
defenceless wherever possible. To
the Germans such a theory of war
making isi mere weakness and soft
ness of heart. You can never make
successful war in any such namby
pamby fashion aa thaV they said.
The German theory broke down in
practice. The more barbarous they
were, the more they excited the im
placable anger of their adversaries
the more they drew in neutrals to
fight against them. Every time they
sent a Zeppelin over London an dV Par's
to murder women and children, it
brought thousands of men to the re
cruiting stations. This theory was
thus proved to be the monstrous pro
duct of an overheated arrogant, and
wolf centered Imagination. The?
