Mr. W. R Moore, Foreign Advertising Manager, Evening News Association, Detroit, Mich. My Dear communication intrigue. "Such creatures of passion, dis- loyalty anarchy must be crushed j out." 1 must confess that I was surprised when you solicited an .advertisement from me as the "News" had already carried a story concerning the storm j raised In Washington by reason of; Secretary Daniels publishing in his j paper the full page ad in question, al-} though I harbored a slight delusion that possibly the "News" had decided to abandon the untenable position of j "neutrality" and had decided to come j out on the side of right, justice and j humanity and would henceforth stand j (at the rate of per page) for all the great principles for which Washington stood and for Lin- coln agonized and for which ever; fighting today, delusion has gone glimmering as the midnight dews be- fore the morning sun and I now realize that "Epiiriam is joined to his Idols" [and I think let him alone. In closing allow me also to say that the "objectionable" ad which your Mr. "H. S. S." marks "No" with a 'big blue pencil was published on Febru- ary 20th in some of the most influen- .yjtial papers in America. The New York Sun gave it front page promin- ence {something that it doesn't give the Detroit News very often) and I am proud to say that it has been read by more than fourteen million Ameri can citizens whom the writer is one While you may be neutral I am not, and henceforth and forever the name Germany shall signify the wreck of Louvain and the murders of Aerschot If I owned or controlled a great newspaper I would publish Professor Morgan's report on German atrocities "without money and without price" and continue to do so until such a righteous sentiment was created that business is based upon the supposi- j the name of German militarism would forever be synonomous of the hate that has poisoned the wells of South Africa; hate that has hurled from the inky sky death- and destruction upon the unsuspecting mothers and babies; hate that has strewn the path of the deep seaways with the lurking mine; hate that has drowned thousands from stately passenger ships. Hale that has wrecked the noble cathedrals that have stood for centur- ies to inspire the hearts of men with their beauty; hate that has driven the fumes of pitiless poisons Into the trenches where living, breathing men have gasped and died that they might help'to save their world from the un- speakable pollution; hate that has ravished the nunnery and chopped the hands from the baby and the breasts from the violated maiden. Hate that has burned and pillaged .nd robbed and reeked with-defence- less blood. Yours truly, William T. Gregory.
