calm and her manner, even under

j Mme. Breshkovsky spoke for half
an hour in English. She pointed
out the difference between Amer
ica's easy acquisition of liberty and
Russia's long struggle.
"Justice is the foundation of the
Russian psychology," she said.

here. We have 20,000,000 children

Russia Will Decide.
Dr. Egbert, secretary of the fund,
was a medical officer in Russia dur
ing the war. He declared that the
Russian situation and possibilities
will decide whether or not Germany
will sign the peace treaty. He
Dointed out the tremendous possi
bilities of a renewal of war and a
control of the civilized world by
Germany, which are contained in
the disposition of Russia. '
He said Russia has three times
the natural wealth of the United
States, with tremendous man power,
and that if Germany can get con
trol of this she will restore autoc
racy in both Germany .and Russia
and be a greater menace than ever
to the world of democracy. More
Russians were killed than all the
soldiers mobilized by the United
States, he said.
At the conclusion of Mme. Bresh

Clifford Wolfe Tells
of His Experiences
as a German Prisoner
Clifford Wolfe, son-in-law of Col
onel and Mrs. Macrae, was the
speaker at the weekly meeting of
the Council Bluffs Rotary club yes
terday noon. He told a thrilling
story of his six months experience
as a prisoner in Hunland.
It happened to be chiefly on a
farm far inland, and he cared for
pigs, chickens and ducks, and took
such good care of the place that he
won the good will of the two wo
men who lived there, and they were
willing to let him have all he want
ed to eat, serving five meals a day,
consisting of bread made of saw
dust, and potatoes, kraut and potato
soup, and, coffee made of burn,
bread and bran. The owner of the
place worked in an airplane factory
and got home only once a week.
When the news ot the signing ot
the armistice came, the people re
fused to accept it. It was impos
sible to make them believe they
were beaten. They refused to read
the news in their own papers. Mr.
Wolfe said the stories of Hun atro
cities were not overdrawn, because
that was impossible.
Wolfe is a son of Mrs. Joseph

hours it cruised about, seeking the

to the crew only by radio descrip

the situation, for while the base was
