forced service and worse? For those
who were the victims of such horrors
I can admit a particular appeal.
Were they more innocent than
others, these fellow-students of ours
in the universities? Were the
universities a wholesome correc-
tive influence on that national
megalomania and conceit and on
that conception of the state that,
no longer ago than 1917, we abhorred
as a menace to the world? Have we
forgotten a certain declaation, signed
with 93 more or less widely known
names of professors in German uni-
versities, in the days following Lou-
vain and the first scenes of the mar-
tyrdom of Belgium? The Daily thought
it appropriate, in connection with the
drive mentioned, to allude to a letter
from a professor of the University of
Munich, addressed "To the Respected
Ann Arbor University of Michigan,"
and appealing for aid, his wife and
children being in dire need of food.
Unless we have forgotten, it must oc-
cur to us to wonder whether the name
signed to that letter is one of the 93.
And then we may wonder whether
that name belongs to "the distin-
guished South German professor" who
wrote, during the war and after'the
war, as follows:
Sept. 29, 1914.-"It is. too ridiculous
to read that America likes and reveres
the Germany of Beethoven and Goethe
and so on, but that it hates the Ger-
many of Bismark and Moltke and Bal-
lin and Siemens and Krupp.... There
is nothing more stupid than this out-
pouring of anger and wrath against
German militarism. . . . The nation in
arms-this is no furious blatant mil-
itarism. . . . One of the most curious
mistakes is the idea, lately uttered so
often in England and America, that
there is any difference of feeling and
of nature between Prussia and t
other Germans."
July 1, 1915.-"The best thing is
this: Our armies are victorious
everywhere. . . . The world will be
obliged to acknowledge the strength
and the good right of the German na-
tion, and the sooner it is acknowl-
edged, the better for the world."
May 15, 1920.-"I think you must
have known the position that for more
than 30 years I have taken as to mod-
ern Germany. . . . I had remained a
German of that old type which begins
with Herder and Goethe and finds its
political expression in the German
Democracy of 1848.... I had remain-
ed the old faithful pupil of Anglo-
Saxon democracy during the war....
Therefore I understand entirely your
feelings toward Imperialism, Militar-
ism, and Prussianism. I think we have
been both on the same line all the
time." (See Atlantic Mionthly for
December, p. 863).
If the intellectual honesty of many
German-and Austrian-professors is
the same as that exhibited by this one,
are we not excusable if we have mis-
givings as to our wisdom in making
a special gift to provide them with
pupils? We in America wish to be

magnanimous, but we do not wish to
be dupes.
I do not wish to seem vindictive, nor
to revive the animosities of the war.
But there are certain things that it
would be imprudent to forget-that it
would be worse than imprudent, that
fit would be treacherous and wrong to
forget. I cannot help thinkingnthat
it would almost seem as if these
things were in danger of being for-
gotten if "a 60 per cent over-sub-
scription in the drive to aid needy
Austrian students" should, in the or-
gan that seeks and claims to repre-
sent university sentiment and opin-
ion, provoke no other comment than
that "the result is considered espec-
ially gratifying since there have been
so many charity campaigns here in
the past few days."
