EDITOR'S NOTE: Tie following is
the first of a brief series of articles
dealing with the American press dur-
lug the WorldI War.
Students interested in combatting
war propaganda can learn much from.
glancing through newspaper files for
he period just prior to America's en-
trance into the Word War, an ex-
amination of a few of the files in the
library discloses.
The news and editorial columns of
the leading papers in the eary months
of 1917 contained a total lack of op-
position to the government's war pol-
icy and maintained a general tone
of extreme 'chauvinism, an examina-
tion shows.
The New York Times, whose edi-
torial policy supported President Wil-
son, urged granting the President the
power to" arm merchant ships on
March -2, 1917, with these words:

"Delay would be perilous, deliberate
obstruction a crime against the peo-
ple . . . The powers conferred upon
the President should not be limiter?
. The right of our manufacturer,
and merchants to export merchandise
is not limited to any particular class
of commodities, the right of our ships
to carry any and all cargoes is equal-
ly unlimited."
Thesame day an editorial appeared
castigating. Senator -La Follette of
Wisconsin, who was conducting asfili-
buster against the armed-ships bill.
He was attacked for seeking to pre-
sve neutrality,ashe said, "even at
the expense of the money power."
He was hit for voting against the
resolution of confidence in Wilson
and the espionage bills, and for in-
troducing a resolution against the
arming of merchant ships. "Not since
the war began has Mr. La Follette
been guilty of deviating into' Amer-
icanism," the editorial concluded.
The next day the Times carried
a veiled attack on peace societies
under the heading:
Records Of Emergency Federation
Show 21 Out Of 60 Contrib-
utors Have German Names
An anti-administration paper, the
Chicago Tribune, was much more out-
right in its jingoism than the Times.
At the head of the Tribune editorial
column at the time, under the mast-
head, the celebrated toast of Captain:
Decatur was printed in bold face
type: "Our Country! In her inter-
course with foreign nations may she
always be right; but our country,
right or wrong.."
Typical Tribune editorial captions

-of the period, were: "In Time of War
Prepare For War," "Vassalage Or In-
dependence?" and "Military Training
In Illinois." The Tribune's prepared-
ness campaign was the subject of an
editorial almost daily as well as fre-
quent front page cartoons. It boasted
,f being the first paper in America
to urge universal military training.
On March 22, the Tribune policy was
summed up in an editoria headed
"Three Mandatory Policies," begin-
"Three essential policies affecting
the security of the U.S.:
"1. Universal.military training.
"2.. The despatch of troops to Eu-
"3. An agreement with Great
Britain, France, Russia and Japan
for no separate peace."
An editorial headed "The Ladies'
War," employed the deadly weapon
of shame in its campaign to send an
army overseas: "The wounded Cana-
dians coming home will look with con-
tempt upon the nation to the south;
in front of whose security the Cana-,
dian khaki has stood in danger," it
ran. "Canadians fight with bayonets.
Shall Americans fight with bazaars?
Canadians will wear the red badge
of courage. Shall Americans put on
the yellow night cap?'
An attack on pacifists appeared on
the editorial page about the same
time. "We insist," it said, "that if the
pacifist sentiment governed mankind
there would be nothing but war. It
is the most intolerant sentiment
known to man and the most provo-
