FRIDAY. AUGUST J. 1918
MOULDING IMMIGRANTS
Over the German Methodist church
at Stockton, Cal., Ties a big American
. flag. It represents the sentiments of
the German-speaking population of
Stockton. Their pastor, Rec E. C
Jannusch, explaining why the flag is
there, says:
"My father served in the Prussian
wars of "64, "66 and TO, and then came
to America in order that his four sons
might not be reared for cannon food.
After the death-vise of militarism is
broken in this war, multitudes will
come to this country from Germany
just aa my father did. Then the German-American
minister can do his
real bit by molding the newcomer for
citizenship."
Any minister who preaches and
' practices as the Rev. Mr. Jannusch
does is doing his bit right now. But
his prophecy of an after the war im
migration wave of German war-haters
is interesting. If such a wave is com
ing, it is indeed a fine, patriotic piece
of work for our German citizens to
prepare themselves for the role of
teachers of Americanism.
The same policy might well be
adopted by1 other important elements
of our citizenship. The best teachers
of Americanism to immigrants are
necessarily, those of their own blood
who have preceded them and absorbed
the ' ideals of their adopted country.
This is realy a duty that the latter
we oar country. If in the past we
have thought them derelict in this
duty, it It pleasant to believe that in
the future they are going to rise to
their full obligation and opportunity
and pass on the benefits that have
come to them. There are signs every
where today that they are getting
ready to do so.
PEACE BAIT
Whether a German military drive
wins or loses we can always expect it
to be accompanied or followed by a
peace drive. The present offensive is
no exception. The peace proffer is
merely accelerated by Ludendorffs
failure. Germany seeks to call atten
tion from that failure by throwing out
poisoned peace bait for the allies to
snatch at and argue over. The allies
very sensibly refuse to notice it.
. The main points in the proposals
said, to have been staged in Spain are
about what might have been expected.
Germany "wants no annexations or
indemnities in the West" but "the
peace treaties with Russia and Rou
mania must not be questioned." That
is to say, she is willing to give up her
ambitious plans of conquest and dom
ination in France and Belgium, provid
ed she is given a free hand to overrun
and exploit Russia and Roumania and
' continue her present progress toward
Asia by way of the Black Sea and the
land route north of it
As for the Balkan situation and the
principle of self-rule of peoples, she
wants those essential matters left to
be settled at the peace conference,
where she hopes her cunning diplo
mats may accomplish what her gener
als could not.
, As for her clever plot to trade her
stolen property in Western Europe for
the privilege of absorbing all of East
ern Europe, it is needless to say that
the allies will never agree to that. It
would mean a surrender of helpless
Russia, to whose assistance we are
pledged by promise and principle, and
it would mean the growth of a great
er German Empire, more militaristic
than ever, constituting a new menace
to civilization.
The other essential matters at issue
we shall never leave to the tender
mercy of Teutonic round-table con
spirators. We trust no promises or
pledges made by Germany or in Ger
many's behalf. It is the sword rather
- than the pen, the cannon rather than
the voice of diplomacy, that will set
tle this war and prescribe the bound
aries and conditions of future Europe.
The settlement will be no comprom
ise but a peace dictated in Berlin by
the victorious allies, on a basis of un
conditional surrender.

THEY'D SELL GERMANY
FOR POIND OF STRAK
LONDON. Aug. 2.-The Iron Cross
has been so cheapened in four years
of wsr that German soldiers no long
er prize the decoration as a distinc
tion and are willing to part with it for
a good ration of bread, on being cap
tured. The French Croix do Guerre is the
most common decoration in the allied
ranks but as it is won only by acts
of conspicuous bravery, the French
soldier prizes it today is highly aa
he ever did.
German soldiers get the Iron Cross
in its varying degrees for very com
monplace acts at the front and even
for sen-ices far from the fighting,

Back of the Firing
Line
Modern war conditions demand that our armies must have behind them na
tional solidarity, the coordination of all the vast activities and an indus
trial army many times greater than the Nation's fighting forces.
The Nation's capital is linked with all these varied activities by the toll
and long distance lines of the BdB System. Thousands of miles of special
wire systems have been turned over to the Government for its exclusive
use. Switchboards in the Government departments at Washington have
been enlarged and new ones installed. Right of way is given to Govern
ment business over all commercial lines, so that the Government chief!
may keep in constant touch with every phase of the Nation's great task
and direct its progress Intelligently and effectively.
In organizing the military activities of the country, the Government has
had the effective cooperation of the Bell Telephone System, which even
in peace times reached 70,000 communities and now extends to the head
quarters of every Army Department and Naval District In the United States.
