German, when taught by an Ameri-
can-minded teacher, does not neces-
sarily and inevitably "noculate the
children of Uncle Sam very power-
fully" with kultur. Nor does it hin-
der Americanization or spoil Ameri-
cans, according to Prof. John W.
Scholl of the German department.
Professor Scholl was chosen to ad-
dress the modern languages confer-
ence of the Schoolmasters' club, stat-
ing the present status of German in
the United States. "The language it-1
self does not carry with it the civill-
zation of the people of whom it is the
mother tongue," said he. "Even an
appreciative understanding of that
type of civilization--its art, literature,
political organization, industrial and
scientific achievements - does not
carry with it admiration. It may quite
as readily carry disgust and hatred.
That all depends upon the teacher,
and the manner of presentation.
Glorification of Germany
"Glorification of Germany, accom-
panied by disparagement of America
by ill-judged enthusiasms for things
distinctly un-American lay always at
the bottom of the evil of past prac-
tices. Conscious or unconscious pro-
paganda for the'German system as
superior to the American., furnished
the substance of drill exercises of all
kinds, and the teacher added -the in-
fluence of his own approval, or sup-
plemented it with his own web.
Wrong Practices
"These wrong practices, however,
are not inseparable from the subject.
They inhere in teacher, text, and pur-
pose, and these may be reformed.
Modern Languages
"The leaders of the world today,
in order to have a passport to the
treasures of the past, and a key to the
activities of the present of the whole
civilized world, such as the speaker
of Latin possessed. a couple of cen-
turies ago, must have a reading
knowledge of the three major modern
languages, English, French and Ger-
man. In my judgment this is true to
such an extent, that it would con-
tinue to be true for a generation to
come, even if the results of this con-
flict should be comparable to those of
the Thirty Years' war.
Opinion Would Lose Force
"Of course, if Germany should drop
out of the race for two centuries, as
she did then, this opinion of mine
would gradually lose its force. Should
Germany ibecome a mere imitator, a
third-rate laggard, we should care
little more for what she produced in
the greater departments of civiliza-
tion, than Europe did from 1648 to the
time of Lessing. But for the present,
and barring the darker prospect at
least until it stalks a specter visible
on the horizon, our leaders should
command the German language as
well as the French.
MusteFmain Requirement
"Again, so long as scholarship im-
plies research, so long as scholarship
is international and implies first-
hand knowledge of the sources, Ger-
man must remain a requirement for
all aspirants for higher degrees and
unusual professional attainments.
Scientits, Yew

itions. The consuls of the United
States, no matter in what land they
are stationed, will have to guard the
interests of the United States in a
sharp contest, partly of honest rivalry,
but partly of intrigue, both political
and commercial. In the past the Ger-
man agent has been everywhere. The
antidote should be equally ubiquitous,
and the antidote is a loyal watchful
American officer, who includes a
knowledge of German among his
many useful talents. Our nation with-
out such public servants- would be
a blinded giant in the world-struggle.
Knowledge an Asset
An acquaintance with German art,
music, literature, philosophy, political
and industrial history, in fact the
whole 'sittlichkeit' of Germany, is an
asset, often an inestimable asset in
public men. But it must be .mere ac-
qudintance, not passionate adoption.'
Three Provisos
"If properly taught by Americans,
to Americans, for Americans, German
remains a subject which has legiti-
mate claims upon the attention of the
college student everywhere, and upon
the high school student wherever he
is preparing for college or a profes-
sional career.
"The German language can no long-
er be taught as the vehicle of German
kultur. The spirit of German teach-
ing is going to be wholly changed.
The text-book with its glorification of
everything German is going into the
limbo of museums of curios. The Ger-
man-minded teacher is going to per-
'form a miracle, or he will follow the
text-book. Teaching of German is
going to be Americanized or-elimin-
ated."

MR. WILFRED SHAW RECEIVES
INTERESTING TRENCH PAPER
Alumni Secretary Wilfred B. Shaw
has received an interesting trench
paper, "Beaumont Bull," from F. J.
Russell, '15. It is dated March 2,
1918, and the home office is "Nowhere
in France."
Although written in English, French-
type has been used giving the paper
a decidedly different appearance. It is
edited in the snappy American style
and contains accounts of the base-
ball games that take place just behind
the lines, little witticisms on Boches,
the more interesting news from home,
and a great many local occurrences.
One of the features is an appeal by
a member of the group on that sector
who fears that he may be unable to
be in Paris for the date of his wed-
ding. In this case, he wishes a sub-
stitute to replace him. Applicants are
asked to inquire at dugout 14, but
are warned to keep their heads down
when entering and to bring their gas
masks with them.

Liberty bonds have great purchas-
ing powers when used by the war
department, according to the follow-
ing table:
One $50 bond will buy trench
knives for a rifle company, or 37
cases of surgical instruments for en-
listed men's belts,' or 10 cases of sur-
gical instruments for officer's belts.
A $100 bond will clothe a soldier, or
feed a soldier for eight months, or
purchase five rifles, or 25 pounds of
ether, or 145 hot-water bags, or 2,-
000 surgical needles.
A $100 and a $50 bond will clothe
and equip an infantry soldier for ser-
vice overseas, or feed a soldier for a
year.
Two $100 bonds will purchase a
horse or mule for cavalry, artillery,
or other service.
Three $100 bonds will clothe a sol-
dier and feed him for one year in
France, or buy a motorcycle for a
machine gun company.
Four $100 bonds will buy an X-ray
outfit.
One $500 bond will supply bicycles
for the headquarters company of an
infantry regiment.
State Using Waste Land for Forests
Michigan is reclaimizg 4,500 acres
of waste land each year by planting
it with forests, according to Prof.
L. J. Young of the forestry depart-
ment. Under a plan devised by the
legislature, the same number of acres
will be planted annually for the next
sixty years, at an expense of $130,000
a year, in an effort to reforest the
6,000,000 acres of otherwise useless
land in the state.

ENGINEERS TO BE IN DEMAND
THIS SUMMER-PROF. H. E. RIGGS
"There will be a great demand this
summer for students with engineering
experience," said Prof. H. E. Riggs of
the engineering college yesterday aft-
ernoon..
I have no doubt that if students
will file their applications for summer
positions with us before the middle of
May, we will be able to place every
one of them. There are positions open
now for five men with construction
experience, as superintendents of con-
struction, with salaries of from $1,800
to $2,500 per year."
RUSSKI KRUZHOK TO HEAR
CHICAGO PROFESSOR TONIGHT
Prof. Samuel N. Harper of the de-
partment of Russian language and lit-
erature of Chicago university, will
lecture on "The Russian Revolution,"
at the regular meeting of the Russki
Kruzhok at 8 o'clock in Sarah Caswell
Angell- hall. Professor Harper has
visited Russia several 'times during
the recent revolution and will give
some timely experiences.
After the lecture, tea will be served
in the parlors below. All students,
faculty members, and townspeople
who are interested in Russia are in-'

-Scientists may here and there ex-
press the view that America has
reached such a high degree of dev-
elopment in science,~ that she can go
on quite well without any dependence
upon Germany. This is a slightly
wrong envisagement of the relations.
The scientist equipped with German
will still have an advantage over the
one without it. The chemist, the phy-
sician, the specialist in almost any
field of pure or applied science, will'
be better with the full international
equipment than without it.
Trade Rivalries
"We are going to have trade rival-
ries. The prospects are that trade-
warfare mad be sharp and, as in the
past, unscrupulous. We arenow grown
familiar with German trade-meth-
ods, the industrial penetration sup-
ported by the 'Deutsche reichsbank'
under imperial orders, dumping, un-.
derselling at a loss to establish trade
monopolies, preferential positions se-
cured by secret imperial bargaining,
etc. If, for example, in South Ameri-
can trade a German who knows Eng-
lish and -Spanish competes with a
Yankee who knows Spanish but no
German, the German can constantly
see his rival's hand, while the Yankee
will be blind, for the former can
carry on any of his nefarious opera-
tions backed by the 'Deutsche reichs,
bank' and not be detected or under-
stood by the Yankee trader.
