UNCERTAIN OF HTJN SOLDIERS
By Robert J. Bender
(United Press .staff correspondent)
Washington. Nov. 20. The eyes of
the world today are on German : sol
diers returning home.
Whether they aid in restoring an or
derly regime or yield to the anarchis
tic 'pleadings of Dr. Karl Llebkneeht.

the empire is to gain its feet orO01"
with Russia in chaos and eiime. .
Fear is expressed here thnt the Ger
man troops, .returning to barren cup
wards , in war-broken hoiiu s, will fall
itrey to the doctrines of -Liebknecht.
He, like Lenine, haj taken a stain
against 'not the imperialism- of Ger
many but ha .threatened the demo
cratic peace of tho allies wovld as well
With Germany in, control of the bol
sheviki, a great portion i of Europe
would be in the hands of anarchisls.
The problem is one giviug civilised
governments today the niosf solemn
thought and worry.
There still is uncertainty, as to the
temper of the people. Chnos in Gcf
muny has its inception in those desir
ing return of a monarchy as the sole
aieans of restoring order. The latest
appeal of the German government pro
testing against demobilization is count
ing on their troops to nstdst in estab
lishing a military dictatorship which
might, squelch the present upheaval.
Allied Aid May be Necessary
As to allied aid, no definite conclu
sions have .been reached. It is certain,
ttowever, if bolshevisin gnius the as
cendancy in Germany the allied armies
will be the only immediate means of
combatting its spread into other coun
tries. . .
The allies inikht 'throw an armed
cordon around Oermany, or occupy her
leading cities to assist in bringing or

It was pointed out -that President
'Wilson has always taken the stand that
countries should be allowed to settle
their own internal differences as for

But with Germany the problem pre

Germany' internal troubles may bo
a camouflage screen behind which old
Germany is hiding in an attempt to
escape paying for its crimes, an the
opinion of some officials. Other expert
observers, however, .believe- the refco
lul Lionary troubles to be genuine.
Dispatches received here from Ber
lin indicates that Germany is splitting
into states and that the Spartncus
groups Bolsheviki are in the saddle
at some points, while the Ebert-Schei-deuiann
clique moderates f till holds
the reins in others.
An this disintegration proceeds, it is
thought the next whine from the Ger
man people will bo one to the effect
that they didn't' start the war, the old
empire that was so foul is dead, so
why should tho people be forced to

Admittedly the task of collecting in

Has Aligned Himself With Pro
gressives Who Demand Free
Discussion of Peace Terms
By JW C. Martli;
' Washington, Nov. 26. Assailing the
administration for "repression and sup
pression" for "Fnissianizing news""
duning the war, Senator Johnson of
California 'today called upon the na
tion to throw off stagnation of thought
and openly discuss peace problems aud
the future of the country.
Jo&lwon's attack was in the form
of a written statement by which he
aligned himself with Senator Borah
and other "progressives" who are de
manding free aud open discussion of
peae terms. .
" While echoing the loftiest senti
ments of democracy and freedom for
all other nations, the administration
with an iron hand destroyed the lib
erty of the press and freedom of speech
at home," said Johnson.'
"By repression aud suppressive mens
ures, the thought of the nation was
made stagnant end no loyal expression
which did not yield a ready acquies
cence was not permitted or tolerated.
In a republic, arrested or suppressed
opinion or stagnant thought are un
healthy and dangerous things.
"Hava Eight to Expression"
"The result of the recent election in
my opinion, was due to thd policy -tjiat
arrogated to itself omniscence and do
nicd to loyal Americans the right of
free and decent expression. A repress
ed aud suppressed people, forbidden
for many months interchange of taot, i
found the only mode of expression in

"Our nation, now in the peace con
ference, will make' the most momentous

the east. Thero l a I'acifie 'as well as

when a republic has ee needed tho best
thought and the best efforts of its
citizens. That thie thought may not
agree with the prevailing thought or
with that of those fn authority is of
no coiifiquemce. Notwithstanding the
repression ami suppressioa of recent
months, which have made of the greater
part of tho eastern press the mere ser
vile echo of the administration;, not
withstanding .thnt free speech has been
practically dead among us and that
our thought has Dcen stagnant ror
want of expression; notwithstanding
the Prussianizing of the news of the
nation of which .we have received on
ly what those in authority wished us
to receive, this of all times in our his
tory is the timo when Americans should
exchange their thought and should ex
press .themselves, wo can fertorm no
higher duty and roiiucr no greater ser
vice than publicly to discuss our prob
lems of peace, peace terms and the fu
ture relations between ourselves and
other nations and the path the republic
shall follow in tho years to come."
STATEMENT iS BELIEF
Postmaster General Did Not
Understand ?At Beginning
Public Service Commissioners Corey
and Ruchel today expressed the opin-i
ion that Postmaster Burleson will ac-
cept the commission's statement of facti
and citations of law, relative to the
increase in telephone rates made by
the I'acifc Telephone & Telegraph
company, and will direct the company
to make regular application to the com-,
mission for higher rates.
They said they based this opinion on
the tone of the postmaster general's
messages, in the interchange of tele
grams which has taken place between
the commission and Burleson. They
point out that it seemed evident that
Burleson dd not understand, at the be
ginning, that the compan was trying to!
put over higher rates without following
the procedure prescribed by the Oregon
However, if the postmaster general
refuses to recognize the authority of the
commission and the laws of the state
then the commission will consider tak
ing the matter into the federal court
to test the question of jurisdiction.
