For Collapse of Hun War
Machine Says Hindenburg
RELIEF AT LAST
By Carl D. Groat
(United Press .staff correspondent)
eciia. Nor. 18. The final "judg
znes of history" will show that the
revolution was' only a "keystone of
Germany's military collapse," Field
Marshal Von Hindenburg; told the
refchstag committee investigating the
lack of cooperation, the weakness
and (allure of political leaders and
lack of support in his demand for
cbedienoe was the -real cause of the
disintegration of the German land and
naval forces, he declared. Operators
were doomed before the revolution.
Von Hindenburg insisted, It only put
the finishing jouches to Germany's
Tank Entering Forecast
Following Von Hindenburg, Erich
Ludendorff, former, quartermaster
general, who shared with the field
marshal the command of Germany's
land forces, declared the situation
was "most serious" when he and Von
Hindenburg assumed command. Ger-
Tiitxiy's armies were -outnumbered
ten to six he said, and inadequate
equipment and ammunition caused
During Von Hindenburg's testimony

ports from Daniel Von Halmhausen

bassy in Washington warning the im-
Tierial government that America
would enter the war if the threatened

Germany, Von Haimbausen warned.
according to his reports, adding that
German-Americans in the United
States generally were loyal to the Am'
erican government. (
U-boat Decision Hard
Ludendorff brushed these reports
acide declaring that "such memoran
da" always was referred to the "prop
Von Hindenburg was inclined to give
the reports more serious treatment.
The decision for unrestricted under
sea warfare was the "hardest" of the
war, he admitted excepting only the
Monarchists and pan-Germans stag
ed a great demonstration as Von Hin
denburg and Ludendorff came to the
reichstag building yesterday. More
than 2000 were gathered in front of
the building in a blinding snow storm.
"Hoch Hindenburg! Hoch Luden
dorff!" the crowd shouted.
Then a group started up Deutsch-
land Uber Alles and soon the whole
crowd was singing. As Hindenburg
came to the reichstag steps the crowd
sang "Hell Dir In Siegerkranz."
Old Chiefs Cheered
Imperial 'colors appeared from ev
erywhere and many men bared ther
heads in honor of their old chief.
Inside the reichstag building Von
Hindenburg found upon his desk a
great bunch of lillles, tied with rib
bons in the imperial colors.
Heavily armed guards of the forces
of Gustav Noske, minister of defense,
plodded through the snow around the
reichstag but made no attempt to
stop the. demonstration in honor of
the two Warriors. Machine guns were
kept in readiness, however.
Another demonstration, was staged
as Von Hindenburg and Ludendorff
left the reichstag. Monarchists again
started "Hoch Hindenburg," but the
anti-monarchists had gathered and
drowned them with a eounter dem
onstration, Ringing thfe Marseillaise
and shouting "Hindenburg the slaughterer."
Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 2.
Charlie Chaplin, funny man,
agrees with Max Under, t he
French screen comedian who
has Just reached New York,
that the day of custard pies,
blackberry Jam. slapstick and
over ripe eggs aa screen laugh
producers have gone. He thinks
they were all right in their
time but that comedy has ad
vanced beyond that stage.
"When a scene -presents a
natural situation suggesting
laughter the laugh belongs to
the people in the audience and
they take it," Chaplin com
mented today. ' When a me
chanical contrivance is resort
ed to it may or may not pro
duce laughter. But what is the
result? The laugh generally
belongs to the man operating
the prop and the audience us
ually lets him have it"
So the price of custard pies
can be expected to slump.
