"Wo miiBt glvo to tho American peo

Destroy Forever Military Menace
"It is not enough to do more than
to drivo tho kaiser from power; it Is
rot enough merely to send his brood
of murderers into obscurity; it Is not
enough to take from his conspicuous
butchers tho weapons they are using
In tho deadly conflict. Wo must de
stroy forover tho military menace
cf that nation, and crush beyond res
urrection tho criminal designs and tho
cruel ambitions of the gorman peo
ple; designs and ambitions which
through fifty years of education and
training, havo resulted in a savage,
,trutal and remorseless society tho
Implacablo foo of Christian civiliza

DENT ON REIGN OF TERROR
Civilians Subjected to Dastardly Pun
ishment to Force Subjections
New York A german offensive of
torror against the civilian population
of Krnnco and Italy was described by
Henry I Davison on his return from
a 1,200-mile tour of inspection of Red
Crocs work abroad.
"Tho outstanding feature of german
methods ut tho present time," ho bald,
"Is tho effort to terrorize women, chil
dren and old men at home. While the
german troops are making their drive
on tho front .airplanes nro bombing,
nearly every night, towns behind tho
lines with the deliberate and declared
purpose of terrorizing civilians and
breaking down the morale of such a
point that they will importuno their
government for ponce. It Is the most
dastardly, unrighteous, cruel, devilish
plan which could be conceived.
"It Is based upon the theory that
tho killing of four children out of llvo
will Induce the mother to Implore her
government to have the war stopped
that her fifth child may lire. It is
carried on fiom the English channel
to the SwIfb border and from tho
Swiss border to tho Adriatic and has
resulted In the maiming of thousands
of women and children and the driv
ing of hundreds of thousands of terror
Btrleken from their homes.
"All of this Is accomplished by tho
most active possible propaganda, es
pecially in Italy."
Upholding Civilian Morale
Mr. Davison described the attempt
to uphold civilian morale up "one of
the great missions of the Hed Cross,"
adding: "You need havo no concern
for german propaganda where tho
Red Cross Is working. We havo work
in Italy and In France."
He regards tho bombing of Paris by
big guns as part of the offensive of
terror and says that the damage to
buildings is so sllfhr that one might
drivo about tho city a week without
In Prance relief Is being extended
In 121 cities and towns; In Italy in
forty-five cities and towns, with

A Dig Reduction In Mileage
Washington Revised schedules in

starting from Chicago, effective Juno

age of 11,728,000 miles annually. Di
rector General McAdoo has announced
his approval of this rovislon.
"This economy has been accom
plished," tho railroad administration
said, "by abandoning duplicate service
between Chicago and the Pacific coast
cities and assigning to the short and
direct routes to each city."
Loan to New York Central
Washington. Tho Central Trust
company of New York has agreed with
Director Goneral McAdoo to loan tho
Now York Central railroad ?G,000,000

"Hoy, is that n safe slough to cross?"
"Has It a good hard bottom?"
"Oh, yes," snltl the boy.
Tho man started to cross; his horso
mired, and lie hud to dismount and
