BALTIMORE, Oct. 10. Regret
that he cannot g-o back to Germany
to aid in reuniting his country )s
the principat emotion of the ex
crown prince in exile at Wieringen,
Holland, according to an authorized
interview- with him, to be printed
tomorrow morning by the Balti
more Sun. The cabled interview,
which is copyrighted by that paper,
"was given to Henry L. Mencken, the
critic and essayist, who has Been in
central Kurope for several months. t
Mr. Mencken comments on the
dreariness of the island, which is
entirely cut off from the mainland
for weeks during the winter. His
narrative proceeds ' ,
But this deadly isolation has
failed to make an noticeable im
pression on the spirit or frame of f
the prince. There are touches of
gray in his sandy hair, but he still
is erect as a drill sergeant, and as
quick in speech and movement.
Very tall, slim and lithe, and now
smooth shaven, he looks much like
a big boy.
"But certainly there is nothing
immature about his ideas. Among
all the Germans I have talked to
during the past six weeks, ranging
-'from officials to newspaper editors,
and from university professors to
business men, I can recall none
whose views of past and present
events contain less of illusion. He
discusses the war objectively and
with great shrewdness and accepts
his present position uncomplainingly.

Stupendous Task Kneed.
" 'Germany he said, 'faces stu
pendous tasks and almost intoler
able burdens and it is naturally
hard for any German to stand by
without taking a hand. I sincerely
wish I could be more actively em
ployed, but certainly have no de
sire to complicate the present situa
tion by raising factional questions.
It would be absurd, of course, to
eay dynastic considerations do not
interest me, but they assuredly take
second place in my thoughts. In
such days as these I am first of all
a German citizens anl soldier. As
such, my duty is precisely that of
every other good German to subor
dinate personal fortunes and even
personal opinions to the common
good. What we need today above
all is national unity. A thoroughly
united Germany would be unbreak
able.' "I asked the prince if he would
vote, supposing himself at home.
'Certainly,' he answered. 'My
wife always votes. Why shouldn't 1'?
"Watchful Major Mueldner evi
dently feared I would ask him how
he would vote, but the prince him
self saved the situation.
" I refuse to answer,' he said
with a smile. 'The ballot is secret
by law and I always try to obey the
Prince Bit Philosophical.
"The prince takes a philosophical
view of the extravagant tales about
him circulated in America during
the war. For example, the stories
of wholesale burglaries in France.
He collects such fables with humor
ous interest and was apparently de
lighted with several I contributed

had won a sweeping victory, I'd
have got as crown prince far more
than my fair share of the glory. In
defeat I get, perhaps, rather more
than a fair share of the blame and
execration, at home and abroad, but
such- are the fortunes of war for
commanding officers. I doubt that
any sane American seriously be
lieves today that I was guilty of
the fantastic crimes laid to me dur
ing the war.'
"Like most other Germans, the
prince believes that the European
situation will never bek genuinely
remedied until the United States
takes a hand in it. 'It rather sur
prises me,' he said, 'that the United
States as a nation shows so little
concern about the immediate future
here. Things go steadily from bad
to worse I don't mean in Germany
alone, but everywhere on the con

" 'Here in rich, peaceful Holland,
among people famous for industry
and business capacity, the effects i
of the German situation are every

their goods, but their best customer.

will she ever buy again until there
is a radical dealing with the evils
which beset her. I hear that tradp

it is utterly unworkable is obvious
to everyone. It is doing almost as
much damage in France, in fact, as
to Germany, and scarcely less to
the other allies and neutrals. The
speech of Reginald McKenna in
New York last week ought to be
accepted by the whole world as a
plain warning. McKenna knows the
situation thoroughly and he told
the simple truth.
" 'The entrance of the United
States 'into the war threw the bal

largely responsible for their victory.
But the United States opposed the
treaty before it was signed and has
never ratified it since. I am in
