By Carl IX Groat
(I'nited Press Staff Correspondent)
Berlin, (By Mail "How are Ameri
cans treated ia Berlin?"
This question has been frequentlv ask
ed and the answer, at present, U that
they are unmolested, and for th- west
part rourteously received.
For a time, it is true, American offi
cers traveling were counselled to J;t
into mufti, rather than take ehaures
of inciting some hothead to trouble. In
the ease of couriers, mufti is worn n
some trips, but those coming and go
ing between Paris and Berlin appear in
uniform and are rarely annoyed, though
occasionally someone trios to crowd o
ft sidewalk or give the officer an ugly
look. As for civilians, there are only
a few here mai dy newspapcr:v.en-l
and they are treated respectfully.
This represents the individu.".! situa
tion regarding Americans.
As for the United States as a wlio'ie
and American citizens as a whole, thee
ia stiil prevalent 'some propaganda ot
ua unpleasant sort.
President Wilson has lieen condemm-d
because the peace treaty did not de
velop according to the way in which
the Gorman eople felt his ffliirtcet:
, points should have been interpreted.
But there was little of personal attack
against the president rtnd only here and
there articles with un uuti-AmHcnn
However, in the lust few days, a
propaganda movement sOiiiewii.it, lim
ited, but nevertheless more or less per
sistent has sprung up. One hears of
late that J,really no American food is
coming in'' though it Is, of course, well
known to the government that iuOncy
wus put up by Germany even befoie
presentation of the treaty, intended to
pay for certain American government
supplies. Not in all enses, however,
is there complaint that America has
fui'ed to send what it agreed. On the
contrary one hears now and then tilut
the government is passing off its oid
army bacon, and saving the newer, bet
tor American, bacon for the guaids or
for other purposes. In any rase, the
average" Berliner doesn't overlook the
fact that America's food supply has
helped to keep tho wolf from the door
specifically what the American peo
ple may expect in the matter of
home-made drinks, despite their
But to the local State officials will
probably be left the searching out of
liquor kept secretly for personal use
During the last few months mil
lions of gallons of hard liquors, wines
and beer have been bought by indi
viduals and laid aside in their home
so that in the dry years to come they
will have drop of brandy for (he
Id people or a glass of whisky for
a cold, wet day, or a bottle of beer
an a hot August evening.
While the national prohibition law
was being passed, and before it actu
ally went into effect, there waa ne
way of preventing private parties
from buyirg liquor to take home and

brought vigorous complaints to the
director general of railroads, par
ticularly from Parker Quincy Moore,
Mayor of Wilmington, North Caro
lina. Mayor Moore's protest was writ

loads, but it is not the business ef
the railroad management to bother
with liquor laws. When a train of
cars comes into tha b'tate the local
town, county or Stat authorities
have the right to enforce the local
laws on thnt train. The energetic
prohibition agents in Virginia in the
discharge of their duties need pay no
attention to the protest of the
mayor of a North Carolina city or
any comments the United States
railroad officials mij'ht make. The
legislature of Virginia has the right
to enact any anti-liquor law the peo
ple of the SUte want and to set that
its officers rigidly enforce it

Michigan also has a bone-dry law.
This law has been in operation for
more than a year, but penalties wer
not fluite stiff enough. So the other

some more teeth in the law, and now
