world, nations aie at one another's throats,
battles aro raging, men aro being mowed down
by tho ill o of cnrinon. It's horrible almost In
credible. Yot I foresaw this thing as a child
foresaw Germany's effort to secure supre

carnage that resulted in tho burning of Lou

"I was sent to Germany to school at the age

I lived in n pension kept
by a professor. We wore near tho frontier
and saw the Franco-Prussian war at Its In
ception. The Germans went to war with a
grim determination a savagery of purpose that
Impressed and terrified mo, young as I was.
Well, after the first battles they began bringing
the wounded and prisoners to the city. With
other school children I went out nnd carried
sandwiches and beer to the wounded soldiers.

tho Germans were ghastly. It came to mo
then-tho thought that this nation would Borne
day precipitate a world war. and endeavor to
securo world supromacy. and that the brutal
