GERMANS HAVE CAMOUFLAGE DOWN TO A FINE ART London. July 17. A British air of ficer writing from the western front says that the Germans have this Spring brought camouflage to a state of artistic perfection that is almost incredible. "The most expert and h'ghly experienced airmen are often 'deceived even when flying low," he writes. "As a first step, the German military authorities sought sugges tions from the most distinguished ! German artists in color. As a next jstep, every available man was turned 'on to the business of carrying out -'the artists' ideas. j I "Miles of canvas painted to look . like roads were constructed, under! which regiments could march with out being seen. Paper encampments! were improvised, and aerodromes, J woods, villages and factories of aj purely fictitious character were set I up merely to distract observers and to j cover the movements of troops anij guns. Nothing on so vast a scale has : ever been attempted before." lay Associated tress.) j London, July 17. "Neo-Marxlsm" is the name applied by the Frankfur ter Zeitung to the remarkable reaction undergone by an apparently increas ing section of German Socialists, whereby Karl Marx's principles have been abandoned In favor of what Is virtually Pan-Germanism. The chief organ of the new school is the Glocke, of which the chief writ er is Dr. Paul Lensch. The Neue Zeit, formerly in the hands of the So cialist minority, Is following In the same course, trying also, with the hearty support of Pan-German papers, to give new-meanings to Marx's doc trines. The Vorwaerts and other of ficial organs of the Socialist majority still profess the "International" idea, although in practice they support the German government. According to the Frankfurter Zei tung, much attention has been attract ed to a book by Herr Renner, an Austrian-German, called "Marxism, War and Internationale." Renner denounc es the "moral Judgment point of view'' and regards war as the completion of historical, and especially economic, processes. He says: "It Is not impossible that in the fu ture also the world will find order through warlike selection that the power which proves itself to be the strongest organization Is also sum moned by history to perform the greatest work of organization, and to be by right the highest power, the judge, administrator, and law-giver of the peoples." This appears to be the view of Lensch and his supporters. They say they are sick of "ethical flowers," and. the Frankfurter Zeitung puts it, "ridi cule any resolute will to peace and peace by negotiation and declare the right of self-determination of the peo ples and parliamentarism to be barren . catchwords." ' The attempt, the Frankfurter paper points out, to reconcile Socialism with Pan-Germanism Is built upon the the- j ory that the only factors in the world i that really matter are economl".

(By Milton Bronner) Washington, July 17, Many of the bolllgerent nations have proclaimed a moratorium which relieves people from payment of certain debts dur ing the war, and there are many who think our Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act does the same thing for American:) in the armed service of their country. But It Joesn't do so automatically. It puts the Decision up to the courts in the men's home cities and states. In the second place it is believed all relief, under the law, extends for six month? after peace is proclaimed. it ooesn i, in many cases It ex tends for three months after the war ends. The bill was enacted to prevent In jury to the civil rights of men in ! the armed service, bo that they could i devote their whole energy to the job 'of licking the Hun. The Idea was to relieve the man with small means of ihe worry that his little home might be sold during his absence, or that his dependents might be evicted. No man can secure a default judgment against a soldier or sailor. In any court action against a man in the military service, the judge may stay all proceedings, Including the execu tion of a judgment, for the period of military service and for three months thereafter. No eviction from the premises oc cupied by the dependents of a man In military service, where the ren tal does not exceed $50 per month, shall be made except by leave of court . Some of the other provisions of the law may best be Illustrated by examples. First A man carrying a mortgage goes to war and is unable to keep up payments. Will Interest and princi pal be collectable immediately 6 months after the war? Answer Any action to foreclose a mortgage during military service may be stayed by the court, after a hearing, either on the Judge's own motion or upon application by the de fendant or some one representing j tim.

Second Suppose a man leased an office for a long period. Does his enlistment terminate the lease, or la he liable for rent for the total time upon his return? Answer His enlistment does not terminate the lease. It he Is gone 36 months and does not pay rent dur ing that absence, it is due when ho returns. Third Suppose a man is buying a house and Is unable to make pay ments while In service. Must he sac rifice his property upon enlistment, or must he pay all the accumulated charges upon his return? Answer The man does not loss his property. The court may either order the property returned to the creditor after all prior Installments have been repaid to the defendant, or order a stay of preceedlngs. But the soldier, in case of such a stay, will owe all the Installments which fell due during the period of his ser vice.
