Its shells wore rlif!lnrU-about the strength nr Germany and above all about thul ufiensivi. spirit which iiad always bcou (�Diispic'iion.^ly the spirit of the German army, its niosl treasured tradition r:oin lis greatest days. "Since llie day.s of I'"rc(lfri;owitz. Wen like Count Scliliefren, tlie lali' Cliief of the General Staff, took care tliat tills valuable tradition was maintained in the regulations and the training of troops and leaders. Onr wliole people in arms are filled v.ith supreme confidence in Hindeiiburg and Ludon-dorft." So the German press was writing. This barrage ot rhetoric was directed against the moral ot the allies, but it was intended, even mor(\ to hearten the German people by its noise. It reached its intensest in the week or two which followed llic opening of the* offensive in this passage in the "Frankfurter Zeitung." ".\s soon as the whole position of the English and Freiirli armies, lias be-I come, so to say, ripe for slorming. the I time has come for tlic last decisive strategic blow." ; In that brief moment Germany saw the Frencli army encircled and help-lesi*; the British army already in the sea; the American army in mid Atl/n-tic wondering whether to go on or turn back. It was the ti-iumph of the offensive spirit, the reward for keeping unbroken ilie "valuable tradition" ; of Frederick the Great. Four month later General Luden-dortt issued an order to allay "a certain fear of an enemy attack" which he found among his troops. "Officers and men," he wrote, "should be penetrated with a fierce will to conquer."-that at any rate is in the tradition of Frederick the Great, but General Ludendorff went on "as miudi in defence as in offence it is a point which will not bp lost sight of in the course of instruction. "Wo must not then in the presient Dltutttion devote ourselves too exclusivelr it> the offensive, and neglect the coferujive, which is generally more ditilcult. It is that, in fact, whicli puis to lUio jiroot, often in the highest degi-so, rliu woral value of troops." , That surely will renjaln (he classic excuse of a general ^o tlio .Trmy '.vhich he had led to defeat. He had stayed their advance; he had brought them back in disordei'ly retreat, he had given up all the territory which they liad captured-wiiy? So that he and tliey might not "devote themselves too exclusively" to attack; so that their art ot warfare niiglit not become one-sided: so that iliey might practice also the methods of defense. That plirase "we must not devote ourselves too exclusively to t'le offensive" will be remembered. German soldiers will die . "VICTORY" SPECIALS FROM THE MEN'S WEAR DEPT.

VietoiT Price .. wamaname ed not 'to devote ourselves too exclusively to the offensive' ." And in tlie end when Hindeiiburg and Ludendorff appear before tlie people which had supreme confidence in them to answer to the question. "What have you done i with our arinies?" they will proudly j reply "Your armies 'have tlisappeared, but they remembered to the end, Diat they must not devote themselves too exclusively to the offensive. The allies on the otiier hand have attacked you so continuously that tliey have lost the art of tlie defensive; and now if there were a German arraj- left to attack them, they aclually would not know how to defend themselves. They have defeated you, but yours is the greater moral victory." In this way. we imagine that Hin-(leuburg ami Ludendorff will found a new military tradition in Germany, the tradition of "the glorious defensive." which, though it wins no victories, yet "will prove in tlie highest degree the moral value of the troops." ? o � : * : > ? Perhaps tlie most extraordinary disclosure that has yet been made with regard to Couni Von Bernstorff, formerly German Ambassador to the l.'nited States, is that he actually set up in business to manufacture munitions for the Allies. This tacit is stated by A. Mitchell Palmer, IT. S. Ene-I my Alien Property Custodian, and his special investigator. Francis P. Gar-van, who has been looking into, the antecedents ot the Bridgeport Projectile Company. It is. found to have been financed by the Imperial German Government, who set aside $lt),000,-\ 000 for the purpose. Though they op-(erated under cover of the names of certain Americans, the policies of tlie Projectile company were really directed by Bernstorff, Dr. Albert, Dr. EFern-berg. Capt. Von Papen, Hans Von Tnuscher, and other individuals whose names figured in countless German-American conspiracies. It was planned that this company should enter into contracts with the Entente powers tor the manufacture of munitions in apparent good faith, though with no intention of making deliveries. In oonneniion therewith, it was planned to buy up all available supplies of powder, antimony, hydraii-lic presses, and other elements that enter into the making of munitions, ostensibly for Allied uses, but in reality to divert these materials from firms that were actually carrying out contracts in good faith. Another branch of activity was that of using its organization to start labor agitations in the munition industry 'which would leajl to strkies in other factories; and to make munition making so unpopular, that it would stimulate public sent!-ment in favor ot an embargo. Certainly it TvaB an .Ingenious scheme; but, $10,000,000 proved all too small a sum to aceompUsli the pui^-poso ot tying up the wliole munitionr industry; while Germany's own con� duct made her so impopnlar that tiV� agitation ggainst the shipment ol munitions abroad became hopeless. Bui; we must certainly give Bernatorfl ' credit for possessing a Machiavelliaiii. imagination. .ai.i.;^!i' John A.
