Dei Moines, la., Nov. 10. (Spe

cialist lecturer and member of the
Root commission to Russia, declared
in an intercview here that the Maxi

than the I. W. W. can control the
There are spots in the United
States where the I. W. W. is strong,"
he said, "but they have no influence
in the country at large. The Hol

are afirly strong in Moscow, but out

as popular and influential as the I.
W. VV. is with the American farmer.
The greatest influence for evil in Rus
sia is not the Holsheviki nor i sit the
wonderful German espionage system
which is at work in that country.
"It is the attitude of a majority of
the newspapers of America. American
editors print every wild story about
Russia which comes into their hands.
They publish editorials criticizing and
denouncing Russia, based on false
hood and containing false conclusions.
Every wild news story and every un
friendly editorial finds it way back
to Russia and there does its mischief.
"I do not mean that the American
press deliberately aids Germany," he
continued. "It does not. The trouble
is that every American editor has im
planted in the dept of his being the
instinct for a good story. He will
publish anything if it makes good
He declared that Germany is the
greatest press agent nation on earth
and the German publicity machine
