Three weeks: ago Germany' surrendered unconditionally to the allies.

Qerinany is hundreds of, years behind iis In attainment of responsible gov-femment. In Cromwell's day the autocratic claim of "the^ divine right of kings" was settled.'' It was de-clqj-ed: by the. people to be.; a false plaim. In IGSS the rights of the peo-jjle were further, shfeguarded. The iibre of constitutional government has been strengthened by xia through the years. An autocratic government Our troops- fought victoriously be rause they were fighting , for high Ideals, Germany was leading the world In aolehtlflc research; but crushed the fine things'of the spirit.
