said, arose in the post-war Wimarl
republic as an argment for the old
monarchists who sought a return to
the monarchical government. It was
not, however, he pointed out, an ar-
gument used to defend the present
National Socialist regime until recent-
Professor Wheeler emphasized that
the failure of the German republic
cannot be used as an argument by
those who believe the Germans are
not capable of democratic govern-
ment. "If the republic government
in Germany has been instituted in a
period of economic prosperity and had
been treated with respect by the for-
mer enemies of Germany-it might well
have survived," Professor Wheeler
claimed. As circumstances came
about, he added, the situation both
economical and political arising from
the World War served to prevent the
democratic: constitution from having
a fair chance.
To provide an historical basis for
his contentions, Professor Wheeer
pointed out that in pre-war Germany
there was an ever present trend to-
ward democratic procedure which
could be. detected both in the na-
tional Reichstag and in the smaller
state governments. A more demo-
cratic form of government was urged
by popular opinion, he declared, and
the right of free speech was taken
almost for granted.? If the war had
not come, he suggested, there is no
reason to disbelieve that a democracy
similar. to that which exists in Eng-
land might have evolved in Germany.
The German has never had an op-
portunity to work under favorable
conditions either political or econom-
ic, . Professor Wheeler maintained.

General conditions resulting from the
humiliating Varsailles treaty tended
to render the German people dis-
gusted with democratic government,
he said, and it was this dissatisfac-
tion on which the National Socialist
party throve rather than the inability
of the German people to preserve the
republic. While in 10 years de-
mocracy was able to accomplish
scarcely nothing in restoring Ger-
many to its former position of hon-
or and power, Professor Wheeler re-
called, the National Socialist party,
with its vaguely promising program,
soon refortified the nation, stabilized
the German economic system, and
created a condition resembling pros-
perity even if it may not be perm-
If education can be taken as a
necessary foundation to democracy,
Professor Wheeler concluded, that
state of government might well thrive
in Germany. For, he asserted, the
literacy of the German people, the
censorious methods employed by
fascism notwithstanding, is as high
as that of any people in the world.
