This spirit of rightoouB anger was quite as. keen in the United States army wh} It is able to place contracts for materials far in ad-yartce of actual requirements, and at better prices than would be possible- for smaller purchaseis. These facts are important in normal times jtheynftle doubly irnportant now. ' The A.iEf ,M. tradcrrnark on a �hoe is a warranty of value based upon thelarge output and greatest biiying'rpower.

Thus was creafed a debt to Oliver Cromwell, shall we say, which was in as much,-tteed ol' payment as that to Lafayette who was-pardon the impoliteness-a democrat by force of circumstances .and not a militant republican like the great Protector. As a. matter of fact, this debt to Lafayette was very muc^i of an""illu-slon. The French Revolution did not occur until twenty years after the American Revolution and any "tips Monsieur Lafayette; the Girondin, got on freedom, he got from the. United States, who as I said before, got them from Oliver Cromwell and his associates-that is to-say, from England. The debt to use a mixed metaphor,* is on the other foot. It Was France that should have paid the debt to George Washington-by fighting for instance, on the northern side in the Civil War -and not the United States that should have paid thfe debt to Lafayette. Not fliat the debt to' Lafayette wasn't worth paying! But therfe was another predltor, nearer akin, who had stronger claims, No'w, that the" yrHr has opened the minds of teti inillioii'Ame^ricans overseas and'co'uritlisss'iSinpricahs at home to these forgotten!7M'cts, the debt to .
