Claude SteUSloff WriteS tO
His Father of the Con
ditions in Europe
V. H. Steusloff. the well
known Saiem resident, has receiv
ed an interesting letter from his
son Claude, who is now in Italy,
and who expects to be back home
about Christmas. Th letter is
dated at Naples. Nov. 5, and is as
Dear Father. This trip has
been an eye-opener to me tn many
ways. The old saying is: Seeing
a thing once is like reading it ten
times. From the newspaper I
gather that the European debts to
the United States are the subject
of much discussion in the United
States as well as here. I might
as well express my personal views
Europe is different than the
United States in that it ia very
thickly populated and is made up
of a number of different races
packed in close to each other.
These race have ancient griev
ances which the nations and in
dividuals in them exaggerate in
stead of trying to forget them.
Wjars have been going on in Eur
ope sir.ee history began and un
less thought and policies change
they will continue to occur Just as
surely as time goes on. The
United States can gain nothing by
meddling in European politics; it
will only lead to entangling al
liances and consequent participa
tion in quarrels.
These countries are right now
increasing instead of decreasing
armaments. Italy has 500,000
men in her army and the fascist!
policy is to increase It. France
has the largest army in the world.
And consider the size of these
countries. England alone has re
duced and has about 150,000, or
the same number as has the
United States. Germany of course
just now Is restricted but will
start up at the first opportunity
You can talk with any German
and he will tell you about another
war with France. Whoever got
beatcu last prepares to come back.
European politics is like a merry
go-round. The army is the favor
ite resort for the upper classes.
and as long as soldiering as a pro
fession Is looked up to like it is
here there must be wars.
Of course the poor devil ia the
one who pays for it all. He can't
win. There are many poor in all
these countries, made and kept
poor by the excessive armaments.1
But even the poor fellow thinks
fight and will rush to the colors
at ihe call of the high men, all
under the guise of patriotism. So
sympathy for the unfortunate
should not affect the question too
The war debts were made by
each country separately to the
United States at their request tfnd
with their promise to pay and
have no connection with other
debts. When a neutral nation
loans to a nation at war theso
loans should be considered as
loans and not as investments In a
war. England, France and Italy
all received something definite in
territory from the war and the
United States did not. We all
surely feel that the United States
should and will help Europe to re
cover when the nations show a
disposition toward constructive
government. But Just now every
week brings up new feuds and
new enemies, with all possibilities
of war, as shown In the Near
East. So. cancelling debts is like
adding fuel to the flames which
these countries keep going.
