Only Answer Should Be De

Surrender, Declares Re
Washington, Oct. 22. Senator
Lodge of Massachusetts, republican
leader, in a statement today branded
Germany's latest note as a "clumsy
trap, awkwardly set, to involve us in
diplomatic discussions," and said if
it is answered at all it should be by
demands only for unconditional sur
' "It seems to be unbelievable," said
Senator Lodge- "that any one should
be taken in by the last vjerman note.
It is 'varnished over with a little
false flattery, directed to the presi
dent and the people of the United
States, which can deceive no one.
It will not bear the slightest analy
"They desire to discuss details
What they call details are the vital
issues of the war. No attention
need be given their denial of illegal
and inhumane actions. Only a day
or two ago they took 15,000 women
and girls out of Lille when they
abandoned that city. Is that a mil
itary act, in accordance with inter
national law? They wish to refer
the destruction of our women and
children on the Lusitania to a neu
tral commission. The American peo
ple do not intend to have the de

a question as "that. The American
people have not forgotten the di

Buenos Aires to 'sink and leave no
"Of reparation and it must be
very large there is not a word.
"Of course all they say about
; changing their government is pure
' camouflage. There has been no
f election in Germany. It is the same
old reichstag, governed by the same
forces and interests.
'The president's reply to the
Austrian note was complete, and
u liver.. . .removed. I do not
think there should be any reply to
this German note, but if there is
let it be simply that we demand the

upon garia an unconditional
surrender, 'Unconditional surrender'
easily id and w:l. be understood

"There is something repulsive in
having the invaders of Belgium
and the makers of the villainous
peace which they force on Rus
sia and Roumania talking about jus

Thousand Casualties Daily Are
Prevented by the Use of
These Modern Engines
London, Oct. 22. (Associated
Press) Thirty-six tanks one bat
talion save at least a thousand cas
ualties every day they are in action.
The British war experts who made
this statement while discussing the
present allied offensive continued:
"We have used in the fighting to
date only a fraction of the men the
enemy has been accustomed to em
ploy for similar offensives and we
have made up the difference largely
with tanks. Since the ultimate vic
tory will fall to the side with the
biggest reserves, the more tanks we
have the more assured our victory.
"It has been commonly thought
that a direct hit by a shell means de
struction for the tank. Not always.
A fortnight ago a tank received
seven direct hits from a German
'Seventy-seven' gun, but the tank
finished its job and trundled back
to its line's.
"Another in the Cambrai region
went over a rise directly in front of
a German howitzer. The howitzer
fired from fifty yards away and a
shell tore off part of the tank's side.
But the tank went on, driving right
over the howitzer and putting it out
Recently Major General Seely,
deputy minister of munitions, said:
"I speak the literal truth when I
say that I, and hundreds of others
it has been my privilege to lead,
would be dead now but for the tanks.
They probably saved Amiens. They
certainly saved us."
Wisconsin Town to Probe
Refusals to Buy Bonds
Fond Du Lac, Wis., Oct. 22.
John Doe proceedings were insti

secure informatioin as to why cer

subscribe as liberally as it was
thought they should to the loan.
In some sections, it was said, not
a single subscription was recorded
-and evidence will be sought of an
understanding among certain per
sons not to buy bonds. Anyone
found to have obstructed the loan
will be prosecuted, it was declared.
Fond Du Lac county's quota was

Belgium Towns Are Smashed

Dover, Oct. 22. British officers
returning from Belgium say that
while Ostend has not been badly
damaged, other coast towns have
been completely wrecked. Middle

"It has been deliberately smashed
to pieces," said one of the officers.
"The place, has by reason of its
military importance suffered mor
than any other town outside the
firing zone. It is just as if an earth,
