The exact position of tho United States
ln tho world war has been established. It
la moro than that of a neutrnt non-com
batant. It Is In the rolo of peacemaker
that tho United States can finally stand.
Tho exact fixing of tho status camo ono
day last week at tho Vltagraph plant
when thero arose an argument between a
man representing a soldier In tho Knlser's
army and a trim Tommy Atkins. For nn
Instant it looked as if thcro would bo
blows, but tho timely Interference of nn
ordinary citizen of tho United Statoi
halted hosUUttos. By tho wny, although
both men were In uniform waiting to work
beforo a camera, Uio argument wasn't
over tho war, but simply over tho play.
