Nothing to do but come round. Tliuea change anyhow." '^Abominable Prospect.” Thla la an uhoniinable pruxijeet, but It !• to be faced. Our world, over here, In the event of Gorman domlimdoo, would be divided Into two claNsea— mean converts and proud Irreconclla- blea—for even In thU new and com* posite country there are enough men and women with high Ideals and in* violate Bouls to despise a race with out a gleam of spirituality, of sports manship, of decency and good man ners, In whom cunning has taken the place of Intelligence, nnd that wins only by driving its millions of cowed subordinates to niatheinatlcAl slaugh* ter. One cannot even rcapect such a race enough to hate it. It is as If ons bad been attacited hy a herd of wild anliuals from the Jungle. Those that escape being devoured may at least withdraw as far as possible, not re* mould themselves Into a Simblance of wild beasts with a tuat for human Aesh. “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.

(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! m WUAMCE. 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.

Elihu Root Takes Lead. Kllhu Hoot, who Is Honorary I’real- dent of the National Security League, at the recent Annual Meeting of the orgHnizntlon laid particular emphasis 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 of tlie l..eague and the campaign decid ed upon at a meeting attended by Al ton R.

Stan- wood Menken, President of the League; Lawrence F. Abbott of the Outlook, and other prominent men. The League for National Unity and other great national organizations have already Indorsed the movement. The leading newspapers of the country are also expreaslng tbelr approval. The following are a few of the fa vorable editorial comments which ar« appearing to all parts of the country: Idltorlal Approval. Williamsport (Pa.) Sun: “The Na tional Security League's effort will have the hearty support of all patri otic voters." Sprlugflsld (Hass.) Union; '1'hls Idea is sound and eminently worthy of serious attention," Dos Moines (la.) Trlbuno: "Here in Iowa we may well iMuuIate this exam ple which will lead to victory for Americanism regardless of party desig nation." Saginaw (Mich.) News: "This cam paign will have a strong and growing following all over the country." Helena (Mont.) Independent: "Ameri- leans upon whom party lines rest light ly and many who are strong for their party will find reasons for commenda tion of the plan of the NatlonnI S^ curlty I.«ague.” 25,(KK) Letters. The League's campaign will be con* ducted by a committee headed by Charles D. Orth, n prominent New Vork commission merchant This com* mlttue, as a preliminary step, has laid Uie matter before 20,(X)0 leading citi zens in all parts of the country and of all political beliefs In-the following let* ter: "The conduct of the war and, In feet, the very future of America are dependent not inly upon the election of & War (ingress that wUl enact nec essary laws, but upon the presence In the National Legislature of men of vision, ability and broad experience, who are the best qualified of our cltl- senship to correctly solve the great ln> temal and International questloni I which will come before the next Con- jgrees. “Qrave Dyty.** "The National Security League, pur suant to unanimous action of its Ex* ecutlve Committee, has taken upon it* self the grave duty of Impressing these matters upon you and asking you i to pledge your service for prompt ac tion to prevent disaster which might follow the election of Incompetent or disloyal men to Congress.
