those who have fought in the great r
war has fallen away, we shall have to j
aim at subjecting at least to a cursory r
training the men of military age who v
are at first rejected, but who in the v
course of war have turned out to be
fit for service, so that when war breaks i

"What is the use of all this? It may

inevitably to disarmament to pave the
way to permanent peace?
"The reply is that no one can under-
take to guarantee a long period of
peace. Lasting peace is guaranteed c
only by strong armaments." 1

Gustave Suggests Parley
King Gustave returned to Stockholm
and launched the suggestion of a con-
ference of the three kings, accompan-
ied by the premiers and foreign min-
isters, at Christiania.
It is difficult to judge how far Ger-
many was actuated in its step by gen-
uine fear of Norwegian action, how
far by a desire to force Norway into
toning down its strongly anti-German
sentiment and wave the "big stick"
over the three countries during the
pending negotiations with the United
States and the entente regarding the
embargo, and .thereby get as good a
bargain as possible for Germany.

German people will have to seek firm
cohesion in its glorious army and in
its be-laureled young fleet. Our busi-
ness is to maintain the fundamental
ideas of war as they lived in the Ger-
man up to 1914, to soak them in the
experiences of the present war and to
make the fullest technical use of

von Freytag, "and this must be remed- Art
