31&N]'{ A\1 ''IIAt TQ'IE POES iOTI
I thought that all argunment with ref-
crence to "Ku Kl x Klannism" as
:yet %t by Mr. F. A. Klann in your
issues for February 22 and 24 had
been ended, but a communication from
Mr. F -ink in last Sunday's Daily criti-
cizing youlr edlitorial on Mr. Klann's
article brings forth this reply to
both Mr. Fnk and Mr. Klann. The
tone of Mr. Fink's communication in-
dicates that lie is ini sympathy with
Mr. l~ann. Why? In the first place
hie asks the samne quetion as to what
is patriotism, and secondly, there is
an old, old saying that a dog never
howls uless he is hurt.
Mr. Fink says hie knows what pat-
riotism is, and then proceeds to ask
what it is. There is about as much
consistenicy in this attitude as .there
was is _Mr. Klann's attitude when he
said that "he would rather live un-
dor the paternal socialism of the hated
kaiser, than uinder our own corrupt
and inefficient government," and, when
invited to move to Germany, answered,
"I am not, nor do I want to be, a
citizen of Germany." In his answer
to the criticisms of his communica-
tion, Mr. Klann took the stand which
a ,weak arguer always takes, when
backed against the wall, by saying,
"You misunderstood the argument that
I off ered."' If the readers of The Daily
ill compere the two statements which
I hiave quoted as to Mr lann's opin-
ions wv1ih reference to Germany they
will see that lie does not even under-
stand himslf.
A few words with reference to Mr.
lilann's ittituide toward our "corrut
antd inefficient government" might not
be amiss. I would like to have Mr.
Mlann by spocific in his charges. Cor-
rupt in =Mit way? Slow inefricient?
Let himt back up his argument by fats.
If I said the moon were made out of
a<:en cheese, my mere opinion would
not prove it to be so. Further, ad-
mnitting for the sake of argument that
the governmenit is corrupt and inefli-
Mient, is it going to help matters any
by advortising this, without oflering
any remedies? If- Mr. Klann can
show President Wilson wherein the
government is corrupt and inefficient,
and how to remedy such corruption
and inefficiency, I am sure Mr. Wilson
would be grateful for such help from
.a superior inds. I do not object to
just criticism of the government.
bat xvhat I do object to is criticism
which takes corruption and inefficiency
for granted without offering some ben-
eficial remedy. A doctor might show
positively from the symptoms that his
patient had the small-pox, but a mere
description of the symptoms would not
help his patient if he gave no ree-
dial medicines.
I think Mr. Fink andl Mr. Klann
make a false assumption when they
say that advocates of 'Preparedness"
are worling only for the benefit of
the wealthy or capitalistic class. They
forgot that a destructive war would
lessen the wealti of the capitalistic
class, and, by thus lessening their
power to demand goods, directly affect
the laboring class. They forget that
thie two classes are mutually depen-
dent, and that an injury to the one
would be an injury to the other. The
capitalist cannot increase the demand
for laborwithout capital. The la-
borer ean not buy goods without the
nioney which he receives for his labor
from this same capitalist. Further,

m Mr. Fink and Mr. Klann believe
"it "Preparedness" protects only the
