Let no Man or woman underrate the work already done to make the world Safe for democracy or doubt that we and our allies shall have the full and resources to fight our Cay to Victory if mistakes made we have Learned frown them. Even after forty years of calculated War preparations the German Bureau Cravo has made serious mistakes Dur ing this War.

With increasing frequency during the past few weeks it has been stated that Germany is already giving Evi Dence in her thoughts if not by her deeds that she is preparing for the next War and nowhere has this Evi Dence been More direct than in a Book written by Lieut. General Baron von Freytag Lorin Hoven which bears the title deductions from the world the general is Dep Ute chief of the general staff and before assuming that office h e was Tho predecessor of Ludendorff As quartermaster general in the Field. Because of his High rank we Are entitled to believe that he expresses the views and the aspirations of that Mil itary party which is still holding the German people in the hollow of its fist. We Are not so much concerned just now with his technical deductions have in them nothing strik Nirav original. As was to be expected he indicates the great import am p of Pood railway communications which enabled German to move rap id lame bodies of troops the Eastern and Western front and made it possible for the French to Ems it similar rapid movements in during the 15attlp of the Marne and in the Trench War fare he the great performed the motor truck. In speak us of aircraft he Hows evidence of .1 Chara Ristic German self in his male Mont that the germans have established in Reasi Norh their superiority in the air. He admits that in land warfare he air plane Lias supersede1 the Zeppelin.

In the he As in the past the German peo ple will have to seek firm cohesion in its glorious army and its Belai Rel Voughr we Are ver glad that Frev Tae has written this Book and that within its pages he has revealed to us so Elearly the incorrigible spirit of these Swash buckling War lords How far the German people a whole sub is Ribe to this philosophy nobody out Side of Germany can Tell but there is cumulative evidence that if not with the lip. At least in the heart the German people Are As unrepentant As their military masters. Be it so and the lesson of this latest effusion from the Treitch Bernhardi Fhyr Lenburg Wilhelm school for the embattled hosts of modern civilization is.
