Victory the Way to End War, 8ays
Executive to Organizers of Pa
Washington, Oct. 10. "Americans
who are discussing early peace with
Germany forget that It would mean
crushing the democratic Ideals for
which tho United States has aiwnys
stood," declared President Wilson on
Monday to the organizers of a patriotic
educational movement who cnlled nt
tho White House. He said the only
way to end the wnr is by complete vic
tory of the nations representing those
Ideals over Germany's doctrine of
"Muny people," snld tho president,
"are Inclined to let their thoughts on
the causes and principles underlying
the war wander into byways, and for
get that the main reason the United

ernment which threatens even the ex
istence of democracy."
The president Indorsed the plan of
tho new organization, which Includes
a number of religious, business, labor
and fraternal groups, for unifying the
spirit of America. Little real misun
derstandings of the wnr exist In' the
