was mentioned by the President in his

All of the conditions outlined by the

the diplomatic break with Germany as

without the specific authority of Con

came in quick succession. Through
Secretary Tumulty he was given all
available facts immediately on his re

some officials, inspired by the Presi

that Germany wduld carry through
her threat, have clung desperately to
the hope that some slight respect for
interational law might still be shown.
German sea warfare may fairly be
stated, however, to have surpassed
even he most pessimistic forecasts

send every vessel to the botoom that
dares to venture within her forbidden
