plea for fair and just treatment by
Americans of natives of y the central

are loyal to the land of their adoption
was the dominant note of the flag day
address here today by Secretary Daniels.
"Let us on this day honor the men
who, born under other skies, share
with us love of the flag," Mr. Daniels
urged, "but let us not by unjust sus
picion wrong the true patriots who
came from the central empires, whose
loyalty and devotion to America is as
whole-hearted as is that of those""who
have known no other land. Call the
roll of the .nation's defenders on land
and on sea and you will find some
ames of those born on the Rhiae and
on the Danube who are holding places
of trust and honor. These patriots
have been humiliated by the treach
ery of men of their blood, they have
been shocked at such ingratitude as
well as outraged at the sabotage and
conspiracies of the spies."
