INTO NEAR PANIC
, Berlin Papers Called Upon to
Help Stem the Tide
of Fallen Public
Opinion. London, Aug. 28. (British Wire
less Service.) Since the entente allies
have wrested the initiative from Gen
' eral Ludendorff on the western front
the effect on the German people is
such that it has been .necessary to
apply continual verbal stimulants and
they are officially exhorted to "be
men" and to be "stout hearted."
There has been more than a sug
gestion of panic and it has been ne
' cessary for General von Stein, the
Prussian war ' minister, to fill more
than three columns in the Berlin
newspapers with reproaches to the
people who credit and repeat fantastic
rumors of disaster.
It appears to have been freely stat
ed, among other "things, that Ger
many has lost 150,000 prisoners in the
recent fighting and that the German
troops have been betrayed.
Captain von Salzmann, who is us
imilv pntmsteH with the task of pre
paring the German people for a
change of policy, elaborately explains
tkat r.prman nttemnts to force a de
cision by means of much-vaunted
hammer blows were reauy aDanaonsa
July IS, and declares:
''Apart from the consideration of
loss or gain of ground, it is to the
advantage of Germans to entice the
enemy into the trackless, roadless
and waterless waste of the Somme.
McAdoo Warns Against
Placing Too Onerous
' Burdens on Business
Washington, Aug. 28. Presentation
by Secretary McAdoo of a number ot
suggestions delayed the pending
revenue bill to such an extent in the
house ways and means committee
today that Chairman Kitchm said the
committee might not be able to com
plete the bill this week.
There was some reference to safe
guarding the effect of the war tax
plans on the coming issue of liberty
bonds in Secretary McAdoo s letter
to the committee today.
The main feature of the letter was a
warning to the committee to keep
in mind the necessity of not putting
too onerous a burden on business. Ine
letter occasioned considerable sur
prise among members of the com
mitee coming after Mr. McAdoo and
treasury experts had insisted on 8U per
cent flat war profits levy, taking four
fifths of all the war profits of 90 per
cent of all business corporations in the
country, and had urged other propos
als designed to make sure -ot the
raising of the full $8,000,000,000 goal.
