Feb. 18. There is no doubt in the miirtls of Americans who have come to Switzerland from Germany since the severance of, diplomatic relations between Berlin and Washington that the German public today presents a solid front. . , i Any danger of serious internal dis turbances, such as has been hinted at in publications outside of Germany is regard as being as remot as it was months ago. Nevertheless, the state of public opinion has become a press ing problem, especially during the last few weeks. . . ... . What They Find. From these Americans, some of whom have had exceptional oppor tunities to study internal conditions in Germany, the following informa tion regarding their expressed views has been obtained: ' "The attitude of the German people " became more of a problem when the break with America occurred, not he- . cause of any overwhelming majority opposed to the break, but because it followed so closely on the heels of the widespread peace talk, coming at a time when the yearning for cessation of hostilities had lately received such enormous impetus. The German Pacifists. "There exists in Germany t cynical, though not disloyal, minority, which frankly believes the peace offer was not made in the expectation that peace could be brought about, but for the purpose of heartening a large but only potentially dangerous stratum of the ' population, which is tired of war. This section has been antagonized by the unsilencabte and uncontrollable Pan German element, which has clamored for the annexation of everything thus far conquered, or at least for very ma terial increases in territory. Although , naturally unorganized, this stratum is very extensive. It has taken the at- :, titude that the war and the causes , thereof are none of its affair and that ' annexation would be of doubtful value. A majority of this element is indifferent whether Belgium is re tained or returned. It longs with in creasing anxiety for peace. Brings Unification. , 'The growing opinion that Germany i cannot hope to obtain all that is de sired by the extremists and the pas sionate desire to have it all over with on any reasonable basis and to get the members of the families back home, has brought it) to being in the last few months a more or less powerful . peace party. The cynics argue that the government recognizing the ex istence of this faction, decided on a moderate peace offer, which, if ac cepted, would please the peace advo cates, even though not entirely pla cating the Pan-Germans; while, if re jected, the result would be unification ' of the people and obliteration of the . chasm between the peace faction and , the Pan-Germans. "Whether the cynics were right or wrong in regard to the motives of the government, the peace move brought about unification to a degree firobably beyond the utmost hoped or. The German people today are as united as at no other time since August, 1914. Faith In Sobmiriaet. : "They have the utmost faith that submarines will force England to its knees. They are permeated with the conviction that "unneutral" America already has done everything possible to injure Germany, by unofficial aid to the allies, that it is not to be feared economically any more than hereto fore and that in a military sense it does not' count. J he Germans are - united, from the lowest to the highest . tn the belief that the entente allies n tend to dismember their nation and consequently are determined to fight with the utmost energy and with every weapon.. ; Uni of Omaha Students Invade Percival Home V The juniors and preparatory stu dents of the University of Omaha , gave an elaborate Valentin party to the whole student body Friday evening at tne nomesot Mr. ana sirs.

FEBRUARY ELEMENTARY COURSE IN NAVALTRAINING Association Plans Instruction for Civilians Who Would Fit Selves for Service. ATTRACTIVE PLAN READY The Naval Training Association of the United States, which is to the civilian naval training movement what the United States Military Training Camps association is to the Flattsburg ' movement, announces that the N'avy department is arrang ing an elementary course in naval training for civilians who desire to fit themselves for service with the navy in the event of war. The train ing will be followed by training cruises on reserve battleships next summer. The Navy department proposes to establish training stations for civilians at Newport, Norfolk. Chicago, San Francisco and probably at Pensacola. At these camps civilians will he trained for a period of a month, the instruction being the same as is given recruits for the active service. Civilians who underwent a course of training last summer will have the op portunity for a further and more ad vanced course of training on battle ships of the United States Atlantic reserve fleet. Ten or twelve battle ships of the reserve divisions, under command of a flag officer, will be detailed for this purpose. The time of holding the camps of instruction and cruises are tentatively arranged to take place between July 2 and August 4. Should more civilians apply to take the course of training afforded by the department than can be accommodated by the training camps and battleships in one period the department proposes to have ad itional periods of instruction, so that all who volunteer may be instructed. In order to make the civilian naval reserve attractive to those civilians who desire to volunteer their services for training as naval reservists the department proposes to recommend to congress that the term of enrollment and re-enrollment in the Volunteer Naval Reserve be one year. Civilians who quality tor and enroll in the Naval Volunteer Reserve will have their expenses for transportation and subsistence defrayed by the depart ment and receive small retainer pay. Anyone interested may receive further information by addressing the Nebraska division of the Naval 1 rain ing Association of the United States, Lincoln, Neb. aper Makers Back Up as Wilson Threatens Action Washington, Feb. 18.

The three things most vital are money, men and munitions. Money and moni tions are being -supplied in larj-r quantities. Men we want and must have.

When men and women want to do treat thines for God they en counter limitations, disabilities, pain ful discouragements. Our civilization was built up with limitations, the At lantic cable was laid under distress ing conditions, the railway systems of our country, the greatest cities all were built by men and women hedged with difficulties, compassed with in firmities.

"It was not built up in leisure. in affluence, in culture, hut with in finite difficulties. In this unbuilding God has looked down upon some of the most splendid sacrifices ever made. When one thinks what it costs our people to give what they do give and that frequently it is the result o. the sweat of their faces we are amazed. If you want to do anything for God that is grand you will have to do it in defiance of difficulties. If you want to do anything little for God. you will not have much trouble; and if you want to do anything less than that you will not have any trouble at all.

S., Feb. 18. Count vou Bernstorff, former German ambas sador to the United States, and mem bers of his party, homeward bound on the Scandinavian-American steamer Frederik VIII, had a comparatively quiet time aboard ship in British waters here today. They were free from every possible source of dis turbance, for none except government officials and inspectors was permitted to pass the cordon of naval boats oi every description that steamed back and torth near where tne frcooriK was at anchor in Bedford Basin. The monotony of the enforced st:iv was relieved somewhat when a batch of American newspapers was taken aboard, to be eagerly read by Count von Bernstorff, who is known lo lie keenly interested in the development of the international situation since his departure from New York on Wed nesday. Examination Well Under Way. All editions of the local newspapers were sent to the ship during the ilav and these constituted the stock of in formation obtained hy the former am bassador and several hundred German consular agents with him, as then was no mail to be picked up here. It was learned that the examina tion of the Frederik's cargo was well under way tonight. Some of the in spectors intimated that it might re quire a week or more to complete the examination, although this view was not shared generally by port officials. Every effort is being made to expedite the work so that the shin may resume its voyage without un necessary delay. Bell-ans Absolutely Removes Indigestion.
