MONDAY, JANUARY 22, 19-15 BIA'TUEVILLE COURIER NEWS Blames German For War Dr. Ludwig Warns U. S. That Teutons Respect Only the Iron Hand LITTLE ROCK. Jan. 22—A proof occupation, disarmament education was advanced by 3r. Einll uidwig, Internationally cclalmed author, In his lecture at !'e Auditorium as the way lo prc- cnt World War III. Dr. Ludwig, biographer o! Goellie, Napoleon. Lincoln and many others, s a native-born German. Jewish, nd was exiled from Germany In 933. He has temporarily forsaken writing for Ihc rostrum "for politi- al reasons," saying that he is one f tlie only two German professors i'ho were exiled who do not dls- ingulsh between Ihe German peo- )le and the Nazi party. "Tlie millions ol German soldiers, a cross section of Ihe German na- ion, arc perpetrators of the brutality rampant In Germany," Dr. Utrt- vig said. "For a thousand years he German race lias breathed Ih mystic fires of militarism and worli domination. Each peace has bcei inly an armistice, an Interlude between bailies of a recurring grasp, :is for supremacy. "I am Ihe only foreigner in this lall, perhaps. I come with a waning for America. The Germans again will steal the peace. The German professors, so-called exiles, lell of the poor, misguided Germans, nicy ask for a liberal democratic armistice. A third world war possible. Wilson, great Wilson, did not know Ihe Germans.' "General Eisenhower's manifesto, "We come as conquerors!" was splendid. Only at the point of a Curses Should Remember That Veterans Are Heroes By RUTH MILLETT In commenting on the shortage of nurses for work in Veterans' lospitals Dr. Charles M. Griffitn says: "The tiling -we've got to do 's to make our American girls — .rained and nearly trained nursesi —realize thai Ihc veterans Ihey vill care for are not old men, but youths who only n short while ago were Iheir next-door neighbors and choolmntcs. I'm afraid many girls aren't Interested in serving with this agency simply because they'ra afraid of that word veteran," That is a lesson not only nurses need to learn—but all civilians. In our minds we must come to have the same kind of respect for the word veteran as we have for the word hero. But our interest and sympathy shouldn't be founded on the fact | crans Hospitals. It would sound a note of Ihe present rather than of the past, and perhaps-nurses would bo more inclined lo care for heroes than for veterans, of whatever age.

Their need for our understanding sympathy and help, their need for our remembrances and honor of them won't grow less with Ihe years — just because they are old veterans rather than young ones. It will, grow greater, as more and more of life passes them by. "HEROES HOSPITALS" The old veterans who aren't appealing in their need of nursing care to nurses today—the veterans the girls think of when they hear Ihe word—were young men once, loo. Not so many years ago they .came out of war scarred and disabled, but toucliingly young. They are old now—as today's young vetx cram will some day be old—but, they are still heroes and should still be regarded as heroes. • It might even wake us up a 111- golden bullion'brfixs a few days ago. The Negro's' i>low broke , into a crumbling stone vault while he was plowing in open ground, Inside (he broken vault were (lie gold bars, each'stamped with a date "1750" on one side and inscribed with an Indian head and a bow and arrow on the olher.

The German must believe he is beaten or we have lost the war and peace. For 10 or 15 years, we must police Germany. "A government of Allied, occupation must be in force. General Eisenhower, a German, would be a well-chosen head for that government. "I believe the greatest brutalities of the war will come in the next few months, from both - Germans and Russians. One cunnot blame the Russians for retaliation. "The powerful cartels, trusts and banks are at work in Washington undermining the Allied efforts at a lasting peace. Thank God, they are not successful. They had the German market before the war and they want it again. Does the se- Jcurity of your American sons and •their sons me a ri less to you than I the German market? . "Germany can be allowed ligh ; I industries, but give them a factorj llo make, hunting rifles and in two I years they will come with machine I guns. The German people have I great imagination. They plead foi I industry, saying that they" wll I starve, that they are overpopulat- led. They do riot say that Bclgiun land England are more densely pop- lulated. There are two classes of Germai [people. The commoners, the bow Igeosie, the cultured who have m I power, and the aitisticrats, the un I cultured, who have all the power ITIie Junkers have the large es alcs. The wars have begun in Bcr- in. The Junker tradition Is there. These large estates'should be given .0 litlle farmers. There should be two Gcrmanys, not six. That division .would not cause the.profound noral resistance that .would come from separating them into six geographic entities. Germany must be dismembered as an entity. • We must educate the Germans to tolerance, though it takes 50 years. The smaller German children •mould be educated in their own tongue, and should be taught .to teach 'their own people. An attempt at Christianizatiou by missionaries would be without- result; though I Ihink the three great religions, or at least two of them, will return. "The older youth, those 15-year- old boys, Ihe Hitler Youth are perhaps lost. America cannot condemn 500,000 Nazi leaders to the gas chambers. Perhaps the Russians can. you would cry to see the faces of these Hitler Youth, the faces of niurdcrers. , '. "We must take them with a hard hand. We must teach them with the soft hand.
