GOD GIVE US MEN
The "Spirit of America" can
bring about the peace of Europe.
It must le the splritfiowever.
that, deprecating war, will line
up, Bholder to sholder man to
man, without any wavering and
fight for the principles of gov
ernment upon which this nation
was founded, the - principles
-jvhich maintain our national
rights throughout the world.
America is the world's ideal na
tion and the warring lands are
destined when they are again
restored toreason, to adopt the
democracy that has made the
United States great.
Now is the time for America
td impress Its ideals upon the
whole world and to do so we
must stand firm for those prin
ciples of government that have
made us what we are. We
must forget, our personal pol
itical prejudices, put aside local
political differences and line up
for true Americanism. We are
in position to make the United
States more powerful and influ
ential than ever before. We
can do so by backing up the ad
ministration, inviting weakkneed
politicians to brace up and be
real men and join the common
cause. The very destiny of
this country is now wrapped up
in loyalty to the principles for
which our forefahters fought
They should be as dear to us to
day as they were to our revolu
tionary fathers. In revolution -'ary
days the old world learned
I; that America ment business
'.Let it know today that we still
' mean business. A united Amer
' ica in defense of its rights will
go farther toward ending tho
-war than anything else that
couldhappen. Alhambra Advo -
Americans of German Birth
The loyalty of Americans of
'German birth includes the duty,
however tryirig of active resist
ance against any and every foe
Of the American republic, includ
ing the government of their na
tive country, specifically and un
conditionally renounce In the
solemn obligation to protect and
preserve the government of the
United States, says Frederick L.
Hoffman statistician of the Pru
dential and a native of Germany.
It is for Americans of German
birth and ancestry to do even
more than their required share
in behalf of the national cause,
so that the world's vanishing
faith in German honor may be
redeemed by those who hold
themselves to be accounjtable
only to the Supreme Being and
the government and the people
of their adopted country. The
world is not at war with the Ger
man government and Its ru tit
less and ill considered military
policy, without parallel in mod
In closing he pays this tribute
to Old Glory:
In all th,e world there is no
flag more inspiring than the
Stars and Stripes; tho fairest
symbol of unstained honor, after
more than a century of national
life and international relations,
life and service under that flag
is a priceless privilege and a
guaranty of good faith In peace
and war. Loyalty to that flag
is the supremo duty, not only
to tho Amelrcan republic, but
to the cause of government by
tho consent of tho govorncd,
and liberty and democracy
throughout tho world. Under
that flag Americans of German
birth and ancestry, with tho
countless millions of other or
igins, have found a new freedom j
which is to conserve and nialn-j
tain enough to have lived for. ;
Above and boyond the glory of j
empire and the achievements of j
military power lies the higher
duty of the cause of truth and
teth a nation."

effective method employed thus for.
To combat tho submarine menace
the UrltlsU government and her allies
have adopted various plans to catch
the undersea boats, although some of
them hare been ntniidoncd as Ineffec

tioned standing who is close to British
shipping interests said when asked as
to the effectiveness of arming ships:
"We have found Unit light guns, dis
charging projectiles of four and stx
pounds, in the bands of trained gun

"A eriscope above the water at a
distance of 200 or 300 yards makes a
fair mark for a gunner working from
