GERMAN PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING TO REALIZE THAT THE AMERICAN
ARMY IN FRANCE IS A FACT.-AMERICAN NEGROES WARN ME TO BE
WARE OF "UNCLE SAM'--GERMANS DO NOT UNDERSTAND ATTITUDE
OF AMERICAN SOLDIER.
(Second In stallment) "
ZOREH HANNOUM NASSOTJEHY,
(Thv daughter of a late Governor of a
Turkish Province; she was studying in
Berlin when the Great War broke out
and has remained there until recently
when she sueeveded in reaching Switz
erland, and from that place she sends
these chapters exclusively for this news
During the first few months of the
war Gvrman people had been systemat
ically incited against the 'hated Eng
enders ".but after a while, when Brit
ain began to take German prisoners it
became evident that ill-tfeatmvnt of the
British war prisoners would meet with
immediate reprisals by the Englanders.
The French, knowing the Gvrniau better
than anyone of her allies, had made it
plain to the German bully, (the big cow
ard) that barbarism inflicted on the
helpless prisoners of warwould at once
bring retaliation two-fold.
But. the Russians and later Italians
fared badly. And then came the Ameri
cans. When the first American prison
ers reached Gennon territory tho news
was flashed everywhere and the people
wre made to be lion? that a large number
of Americans had been taken. Although
the original number was about 170 or
so, tho people of Berlin for a long time
were told that 10,000 Americans had
For nearly three months, this small
number were made to travel from city
to city, and the occasion of the visit
of thia same group was each time her
alded as though a new group was just
captured. Thus tho German officials
gave the impression to the people that
fifty times as many Americans had been
captured as they had actually taken.
But this fraud soon was exposed. Peo
ple who had visited the cities through j
whose streets the Americans had been
paraded had occasion to' see the same
1 A' i
group several times.
Tlrcn came the ill-treatment of the
Americans. I was told bv more thas
one officer that the treatment meted out
to these Americans was shameful. How
ever, another German official whose
home I often visited remarked to lun
that the terrible treatment handed out
to tho British prisoners early in the
war cannot be duplicated to these Am
ericans with Impunity. He bitterly
complained to me tliajfc many of these
American prisoners were of German
blood and that it was difficult then
from Americans of non-German blood
and that if thvs military authorities in-
silted in their brutality it would cer -
tainly tend to bring the men of German
blood in America closer witn the native
and non-German elements. I was amaz
ed to obscrvu that even this friend's
protest against the cowardly ill-treatment
of war prisoners was based on
purely selfish, unmoral and material
Fraudulent Propaganda Papers.
Shortly before the last Gvrman offen
sive in March I wag engaged by the
Herr Brun 's Propaganda bureau to tran
slate a set of circulars into Turkish
which was later to be priiied in a Berlin
printing office and dispatched to Tur
key from which play they were going
to-be mailed into Egypt for propagan
da purposes. One of these propaganda
eurculars was supposed to have been
written by a well-known Indian Moslem
"holyman" who narrated a terriblo
story of how the British in India had
massacred tho Mohammedans and appor- j
tioned their young women to the British
and other non-Moslem Indian garrisons.
I called tho attention of one of our
Turkish Attaches to these fraudulent
circulars and remonstrated to him that
by consenting to such fjimsy frauds tire
Turkish Embassy at Be'lin was becom
ing a party to such lies.VTo my utter
sorrow I discovered that mv Embassy
had long ago become thorough disciples
of their German masters.
I return-ed these documents unfinish
ed and told Herr Brunn in language !
unmistakable that I would rather die !

utable frauds. ,
.. A German-American With Ae-
cent on the GERMAN.
And Horr Brunn's bureau had an as
sortment of men and women which ev
ery nationality was represented. I will
never forge that thin, half -starved look
ing man who so comically wore the
small American flag upside down and
claimed that he was an American and
that Americans wenj an ignorant lot
of men and women and how, in that
land, the rich ruled the mob relentless
ly. But when I asked him if he could
speak the language spoken in that coun
try he bwame rea,lly angry and shouted
at mo rudely: "A,m l a liar thenfWhen
I tell you that I am an American don't
you think that I should speak their hat
ed language?" His accent was so ob
viously Teutonic that I could not sup
press myself from remarking to him:
'Yes you SHOULD speak thvir langu
age but you do riot." He closed the
conversation by telling me that for the
first time in his life he was compelled
to tell a woman that sho was not a lady.
And for tho benefit of my readers I
must say that he made this short speech
in his good native German.
However, the Brunn bureau is lately
in small favor hi the eyes of th0 Ger
man Foreign officw, especially during
the regime of Heif Kuhlmann. Evident
ly tho Foreign office learned that the
disreputable accoitment was hardly
worth their feed.
German Official Statements
During a hom propaganda lecture,
conducted by the pan-Germauic Party,
an officer on leave from the front at
tempted to proVc to his hearers that
very few Americans had bven able so
far to come across to France and that
the German submarines had already ac
counted for more than 50,000 American
troops. This remark met the derision
here and there but the great majority
II.. . J It 1 .1
of the audience behaved as though they
bolieved tho speaker. Then a soldier
stood up and as he faced th spcakor
everyone noticed that ho was one-armed
and wore hig war cross. In his onfy
hand he held a bunch of newspaper
clippings and informed the lecturer that
'these were from .the official announce
ments given out by Berlin nowspapo'rs
since America's entrance in to the war.
He read one after another of them.
"According to tli.i official statement"
said he "wo must believe that no moro
than 60,000 Americans have reached
France, but according to the same offi
cial statements we are urged to believe
that our armies havo captured 60,001)
Wo aro not fools,, if you
the truth you better hold
your speech!" Then a terrible commo
tion followed. The shouts from the au
dience, "Answer! answer him truthful
ly! " could be heard above nil other an
gry remaiks. Tlra pan-German paitj
had tight other meetings. arranged for
that week which did not take place .if
ter this disturbance. I learned atter
wards that the soldier who broke up
that pan-German meeting had been im
prisoned for disturbing a meeting and
speaking in a derogatory manner
against the German government.
Think Peace on Their Own Terms
Theirs For the Asking.
But I do not wish my readers to think
that the Gorman people arc awakened
into making moral protests a;;ainst their
government's imperialistic policy. The
German people are thinking but they
are not yet capable of thinking about
.tlio moral issue. Their one thought is
to wid.tho war as soon as possible. It
matters not how tho government at
tains peaco as long as they obtain it.
They are not ...concerned how and by
what means their rulers would" secure
it if they only return back to condi
tions of former days. They seem to
think that it is in the power of their ru
lers to obtain peace whenever they are
willing to obtain it. They have been
fed so consistently with map victories
that tlroy think that their onemies would
be glad to accept any peace offering,
and they only criticize their government
not making it easier for France and
England to aeecpt terms of peace.
I always believed, until I took up
my studies in Berlin. th my people, the
Turks, were the most helplessly ignor
ant people in the world, but since I
came to know the Gttrman people A re
alize that the Gorman masses are the
only people that take for granted ev
erything their rulers tell them. Here
and there I found people wai doubted
the bulletins announced by their gov
ernment, but ninety-nine per evnt of
the Germans look on other peoples as
low and uncultured that they cannot
understand how it is that they nre not
yet convinced of Germany's superiority.
The so-called educated German men and
women are the most dangerously and
arrogantly ignorant people about other
people's viv-w of culture. The unedu
cated look up to these elements and thus
permit themselvea to be misled Here
is an example- of a hundivd instances
I observed during my five years con-f
tact, with this class of German people.
One of my instructors who had never
been outside of Germany or from Ber
lin for that matter tgld live-, one day
during the iirst week of the war, that
the German armies would march across
Belgium unopposed, France would be
brought to her knees, Russia would be
crushed within two months, England
would bo invaded within three months,
and the peaco treaty would be signed no
movo than four months after the first
firing of tho gun in tho war. He ex-'
plained to me in language profuse that
all thvso nations were mad0 up of de
cadent people,, ami that they could not
stand against the German might more
than a few months. The only justifica
tion that he offered of this programme
was that as Germany's enemies weiw all
weak and unable to successfully defend
themselves it was right that she should
invade their territories. You never hear
a German consider it necessary to offer
5 moral justification in Germany invad
ing and attempting to jhold her neigh
bor's territories. You nover hear such
discussions in Germany. Occasionally

Shortly after Amvrien '9 entrance into
tho war I made every attempt t0 secure
an interview with som0 American war
prisoners in one of the camps, but for
months failed as I was not rrnrdcd as

Asia-Minor, I would havo been imprison

succeeded in worming myself into tho
confidence of a German Ited Cross offi
cial who secured permission for me
whereby I visited two war prisoner's
camps where American soldiers were be
ing kept. I must also stato that quite
a few marts changedjiands in obtain
ing such a privilege.
Accompanied by an intimate friend
of tho Red Cross offieof whom I have
already mentioned, I first visited, Sol''

had, accompanied us that far received
orders to report to another station. lie
introduced us to onc 0f the prison offi

provide against loss of charge through leaks In the electrical system, th
battery connections should be detached and the exposed metal of the con

month and, If the density of the liquid falls much below the full charge
mark, the battery should be recharged. In case ofan absolute lay up, the
battery may be detached from the car and taken Into a warmed cellar or, If
the owner Is averse to the bother of occasionally testing and recharging It,
he can leave It on storage at a reliable battery service station. It is im
portant that a car be thoroughly washed before being laid up as otherwise
the-dirt will be very hard to remove later and may permanently Bpot the

up and even curtains keep better when attached than when tightly packed

INDICATIONS OP ClIOliED
E. M. D. asks: Please describe the
signs that indicate a choked muffler
and tell how the muffler can be
Answer: A badly choked muffler
tends to prevent tbe attainment of
very h!g-h car speed. If there is a
muffler cut-out on your cir and very
much higher car speed can be se
cured when it is open than when it
Is closed the indications, of tho
Bpcedometer being relied upon rath
' er than the operator's judgment
'there is reason to suRpeot that the
muffler is choked. If the radiator
water and the entire exhaust system
runs hotter than normally this is an
added indication that tho exhaust
is obstructed. However, clogged
mufflers are not common, it being
rare that oil or incompletely burned
mixture is exhausted In such large
quantities for a long enough period
to close up the passages. Detaching
the muffler, taking it apart and
scraping its inside surfaces Is about
the only way of clearing It. Burn
ing off the accumulations Is some
times attompted the muffler being
put into a hot tire, and burning out
with oxygon also has been tried, but
neither method is so safe or sure as
scraping. Unless your engine has
been an habitual "oil burner" or has
been accustomed to run on an
egregiously overrlch mixture, we
should advise you to be slow in con
cluding that its muffler is clogged.

Hara to Get Information From
Wo again resumed our walk towards
tho American section of the prison
camp, On tho way I t ranslated the
conversantion I had held with th0 big
black Americans. But my Germans es
corts did out ftinirociate the humor of it
all. Both of them very angry an,l the
officer told mo that these Americans
were frivolus, arroant anr mannerless,
"They will out .onswvr questions-'and
when they do answer they tell such
strange lies that it 4 useless to bother
with thciii," complained tho rtcl Cross
officer. ' v
One American on being asked had
told an officer ho came from a certain
city of a-certain state and when ho con
sulted the Atlas ho coiild not find no
such city recorded. On reprimanding
him for telling such an untruth tho
American smiled nrfogautly and replied
Ihat he did not earn what the German
atlas had to say and that ho knew bet
ter than the (terman atlas where ho
came trom. Ail,! wnen no was uguui
i nuked what, city he belonged in Am
erica, he gave a different name, no
doubt having forgotten the first name.
They nlso bitterly comrlaiiieil that the
Americana did "t regard tho war ser
iously. They alway, sang but never
sung their national anthem. Once
when ni"; of their guards asked them to
sing it they broke out singing a frivo
lous vcrsc about the girl they left be
behind, The Red Cross official related an
other vxprrience ,told him by one of his
friends, an officer, who had separated
the American soldierjj from the othors
and spoke to them regarding flermany'a
Hiil'i 111 the war. His audience of Am
oilcans had listened to him in silence,
pecting the Ocrman officer propogand
1st irimttcd him to make answer.
Thereupon the American prisoner
shouted at the top of his voice: 'We
surely know what, wo aro fighing for,
wo are fighting for the kaiser's head,
and ' his companions, led by
one who announced "three; cheers for
Uncle Ham," covered up the rest of
his remark with loud cheers.
