In the event of Gorman domlimdoo,

“Co«k-8ureneaa a Bluff.*'
I have not the faluteut notion that
the Germans will win. All the proba
bilities are against it. Moreover, If
one projects his lulnd forward it Is In
conceivable that history can read that
way. The general condltlous of the
world are not what they were In the
Fifth Century—that Is to suy, unless
the idea grew Insidiously that it was
the destiny of the Germanic race to
will and rule tlie earth; in oiher words,
that It was the destiny of Kurth to re
vert to the Fifth Century nnd begin
over again. It Is Incredible that such
a thought should take possession of
any educated man's mind, but the
trouble Is that our famous (and often-
slTe) cock-sureness Is only a bluff. Aa
a race we are not really sure of our
selves. We prove that by blindly ac
cepting the European-mado reputation
and hesitating to create and come out
lH)ldly for our own. Those of us that
Ihlnk !'i)d have the t>ow'er to visualfxe
the future must he on the alert every
iqoDient to counteract this tendency
of an uncrystalllced race to accept the
success of might as a matter of course
and unconsciously ada]>t itself to the
"Inevitable." We must he known aa
tlie lltUECONOIl.ABLKS, and If we
take a definite uncompromising stand
there will be only one result—the men
of real coinage who mlcht otherwise
look upon a new future “philosophical*
ly" will not only wake up under the
direct exain|)le, but will he ashamed
to be reckoned as mere numbers in
the great mass of Mheep or convicts.
There la no such Insidious lowering of
morale threatened its thla, because It
is not of Gerniaii, I’aclflst or Socialist
(trlgln. It Is born of common human
weakness and national snobbery. The
result will be a vast mans of Inertia,

GERMANY, THE SUPER-ANARCHIST
By LOUIS RAEMAEKERS
TO MY MOTHER.
(Wriiien by a soldier in n liospiial in l^ouen, France, just before he
died. Ii seems lo be a call lo each one of us, a call lo which we can
respond—unless we foreet.)
“Are they praying for us at home?
Are ihey meeting together in prayer ?
Or going on still in the same old way
As they did when I was there?
We thank them for their money,
We ihank them for ilieir care,
But oh, jusi leli them, moiher dear,
We are needing so much prayer !
“Will you ask them lo gather together
To meet at our Father’s throne.
That we may be kept from faltering.
When we feel we are standing alone ?
There are moments when courage fails us.
When dangers around us stare.
Oh, tell them again, dear moiher,
We are needing so much prayer!"
Surely their voices must touch us.
As they echo over the seas.
And call us away from our pleasure.
To help them on bended knees.
We are sending them money and comfort.
And seeking iheir burdens to share.
But, oh, let the churches be crowded.
When kneeling for them in prayer!
Dear Mother:—Be proud that I’m somewhere in France
At my post 'mid the bailie’s din.
And I’ll still "carry on” just the be best 1 know how
’Till the glorious victory we win.
IVlolher dear, I have seen what war does lo a land
Which once was so peaceful and free.
And I’ll Hghi till the very last drop of niy blood
That such things you never may see!
I have seen rolling hillsides, once feriile and smooth.
Now shell-ploughed and ugly and bare;
i have looked upon churches and shrapnel-iorn shrines
With the Cross of our Master siill there!
I have seen the remains of what once were homes
Now merely a rude pile of stone.
And the old open hearths where love once abode,—
Oh. what is there left to atone ?
I have a whole nation bear arms in its might
All its industries working for war;
The peaceful pursuits and the progress of old
Are lost in the great melting jar !
And Oh, 1 am glad to be in it to stay
’Till the end of the great Epic tight,
For this struggle is for all who are allied with France,
In the cause oF Peace, Justice and Right I
Oh, Mother of Mine, who gave to me life
Long ago mid thy travail and pain;
Dearest one. For the cause oF all mothers on earth
I shall give It, iF need be, again.
For I love you, dear Mother, and I Feel you are near.
Mid the roar and resentment out there.
And i’ll Hght the good flght just as long as I can
For 1 know I am e’er in your prayer 1

Kllhu Hoot, who Is Honorary I’real-

on the necessity of non-partisan sup-
l>ort of tile Government in Its ef-
forta for the aggressive prosecution of
tite war and the consequent Impor
tance of this year's Congressional elec
tions, The matter was then taken up
by the National Executive Committee

wood Menken, President of the
