AFTKR TWO YKAItS
Only two years ago. now, tho Full
ed States declared war on Germany.
The anniversary, April 6th, causes
certain reflections. Because we were
unprepared for war, we were slow to
take an active part In tho campaign
in France, and for that reason It was
for a time nip and tuck whether the
allies would be decisively defeated he
fore our troops lined up at their side.
We have been as unprepared for
peace as for war, and for that reason
have been slow in making peace. Al
most Ave months have passed since
the armistice was signed, but the
United States and the allies have, not
. yet agreed what terms they will dic
tate to Germany. That delay has en
abled Germany to recover enough
courage to say that peace must bo
negotiated, not dictated.
That period of two years naturally ;
suggests contrast between now and
then. In April, 1917, ruthless sub
marine war was at its worst, the spec
ter of famine hung over tho British
people in particular, and they made
superhuman efforts to increase their
home production of food. The Brit
ish and French began their concerted
offensive In Flanders and on the
Aisne, with limited success in the for-,
mer, failure in the latter.quarter, and I
there was danger that defeatism (
would destroy the martial spirit of.
France. The first provisional gov-
ernment ruled In Russia, and great j
hopes were entertained that that
country would again become a factor
in the war, though bolshevlsm was
eating into the army. In the United
States the army of about 100,000
men was swelling by enlistment of
volunteers, but the new levies lacked
arms of any kind, and there were no
aircraft worth mentioning. The navy
had been prpnounced only 50 percent
efficient, hut sent its first squadron
of destroyers to fight the "U-boats be
fore the month ended. After having
declared war, we were just beginning
to prepare to fight. .
In nineteen months we increased
our army to more than 3,600,000
"men, had provided for indefinite fur
ther Increase, and ha'd sent over
2,000,000 men to Europe, we had in-
creased the fighting craft of tho navy
.10 per cent, we had begun to show
our power in the air, and had begun
to produce munitions In quantity. '
Our troops had beaten tho enemy in
every encounter, and had driven him
from the natural -fortress of the Ar-
gonne, from which tho Frencli In
three years had vainly striven to dis
lodge him ,and the submnrlno was
beaten and penned In by the great
mine barage across the North Sea.
Germany had become a republic, tho
kaiser a fugitive, and terms reducing
the empire to military Impotence had
been accepted, after all three of Ger
many's confederates hud surrendered
In little more than a month. Austria
had fallen apart and become a group
of republics. Bolshevist Ilussia alone
remained in arms against tho allies
During. the five months" which have
since elapsed much of tho power then
possessed by the allies hus been lot
through the delays of tho diplomats
and the discord which caused tin in.
At tho same time Germany has re uv
ered in some degree from the flpo
abasement of defeat, and is using Bol
shevism to save much from tho wrei k
which militarism wrought.
That plaguo seized Hungary and
Bavaria, constantly breaks out anew
In Germany, and muy extend up
ward unless checked by peace and
food. All of this goes to show tb.,i
if the fruits of victory are to be
reaped, they must bo plucked wl.cn
they are ripe, for delay may chiini
them Into Dead Sea fruit. There .o
be a race botween tho peace con for

his company, if Burleson relinquishes
