Declaring that unless the depu
ties were arraigned, the statement
of Chancellor Mlchaelis and Admiral
von Chpelle would be branded aa
frivolous. It says:

pushed the Independent socialists In

was a giant.
"When Dr. Mlchaelis ended his
second speech, his words sank Into a
grave silence. Even the conserva

chancellor. Germany cannot wage
