Field Marshal Hindenburg's letter to his troops runs as follows: .soldiers, 1 intimated some time ago to the government that I must prefer an honorable defeat to i shameful peace. I owe you this ex 1 a! . . . pianauon. naving already at an earlier stage announced my intention to withdraw again into retirement af ter the decision as to peace had been made, I now lay down my command in chief. "In taking leave my first thought is with the emotion of long years during which it was my duty to serve under three royal and imperial war lords. .Times of silent, unwearied work in peace, of the proud rise of great victories and of the tough en durance are now before my eyes. "Then I think again, however, with deep pain of sad days of collapse of our fatherland. The devoted loyalty and confidence with which our offi cers, under-officers and men stood by my side was the only ray of light in this unspeakable hard time. Inex tinguishable thanks are, therefore, due to all of you, including the last voluntary corps, who maintained an unswerving guard on the east fron tier. "To these thanks, however, I add a request for the future. How each may think of of the events of the last days is his own affair, for his action ; however, there can be only one rule of conduct welfare of the father land. ur i; . .... . . . uur nation suu stands in grave danger. The possibility of preserv ing domestic peace 5 and reaching fruitful labor now essentially de pends on the steadiness of our de fensive force. To maintain this steadiness is, therefore, our first duty. My personal view is, hard as it may seem to you, that duty must not be postponed. Only by such unanimous work can we succeed, with God's help, in again leading our poor German fatherland out of the deepest humiliation to better times. Farewell. i "I shall never forget you." And now the city dweller dreams of forests, moors and lonely fens, of speckled trout in mountain streams and rufous deer that roam the glens. When the summer comes with brassy skies, who does not long for things like these, for outings where the mountains rise, or in the shade of lordly trees? And surely, men who toil and spin for weary months, and give their best, when rattled by the city's din, should have one month of helpful rest. One month of loaf ing in the dells, where Nature does her smoothest work, and man would come back wearing bells, to do his stunt -as shipping clerk. One month of camping in the wild, the office chairs all left behind, and man would then be reconciled to his demnition, beastly grind. One month of trap ping grizzly bears, of catching cad- fish in the sea, of chasing bobcats to their lairs', and man would do the work of three. Though earnestly we workers try to plan out fine vaca tion schemes, the cost of living is so high we have to take it out in out in dreams. The grocer and the butcher still insist on having all we earn, so we pass up the windswept hill, the woodland and the brae and burn.; The icemzn and the plumber come to tell how much they think we owe; in vajn the scented breezes hum, we can't enjoy them as they blow. : PROFESSIONAL : W.
