War Wounded Give Concert in Berlin
Amsterdam, March 1.-To show the
latest triumps of surgical healing, a
remarkable concert has been given
in Berlin.
All the "war-damaged" performers
were professional artists. There were
pianists who had been cured of pal-
sied arms and frozen hands; violin-
ists bereft of fingers and others who
had been made deaf by explosions.
There was an organist who worked
the pedals although he had his ankles
smashed, and there were singeis who
had been shot through the lungs. Ac-
cording to reports, the performance
was a success from a musical critic's
standpoint.

(By tEdward Miolt .Woclley,
Author and Writer)
The crucial test of patriotism is
willingness to sacrifice one's own in-
terests for the good of the country.
It is easy enough to be patriotic
when one has something to gain by it.
If patriotism makes one's business
grow, it is no trouble at all to wave a
flag and pose as a latriot; but when
the nation calls for a sacrifice of
business and profits, the test is severe.
I have recently been connected with
a campaign to raise money for the
War Camp Community fund. I have
also been associated with Red Cr'r
and Liberty Loan campaigns. In all
of these activities I have had occa-
sion to study the attitude of mnany peo-
ple who ostensibly were patriotic and
yet were unwilling to make any sac-
rifices. When analyzed, their patiiot-
ism seemed to lie almost altogether
in talk.
On one occasion it was necessary
to enlist tlhe services of quite a num-
ber of men in making'-a house-to-
house canvass, and I was astonished
at the unwillingness I encountered
on the part of men who had no valid
excuse for refusing to do this wirk.
Fully two-thirds of those who were
requested to take certain districts and
canvass them, in this patriotic ser-
vice for our country, refused. When
pressed for reasons they could sim-
ply say they were too busy, that they
were not trained in this sort of.work,
or that it was displeasing to them.
The result was that a comparatively
small number of men shouldered the'
job and put it through. These men
sacrificed their time, comfort, and
sometimes expense money. For sev-
eral weeks they worked at least part
of the day ' and almost every
evening. In the course of this
canvass they had occasion to call
at the homes of the very men
who had refused to help, and
sometimes they found these men idling
away. the evening in comfort.
In numerous instances people mad e
promises apparently with no intention
of keeping them. Somne of them prom-
ised to report by telephone and name
the amount of their subscriptions, but
they were never heard from.
What we need especially in this
country toda its a great a wakenrinrg
on the part of the people to the fact
that we are at war, and that our
situation is serious. We need real
patriots, not bogus ones. It ought to
be comparatively easy to put through
the various campaigns necessary to
raise the money the government needs
and it would be easy if the people
themselves would take hold.
And ,yfter all, these sacrifices we
