This Is In the great American tradition. It's wlrnt- the wise and great-hearted American people stand for most of the lime, when we are In our right mind. We once tiled lo exterminate the Indians (remember, "Die only eoocl Indian Is a dead Indian") just as the Germans tried to cxlcnnlnntc Die Poles, because the Indians In the path of the empire we had chosen.

"The South committed the atrocity of slavery and the crime of secession,' 1 they cried. "Think of the slaves beaten lo dentil. Think of Hie horrors of Andcrsonvllle prison. The South mnsl know il has been conquered. The South must know it has last. The South must suffer. The South must, be taught a lesson.' 1 Hut Lincoln said, In his Second Inaugural Address, while the war was still on: "With malice toward none, with charity lor all ... lei us finish the work »,'c are In, lo bind • up Ihe nation's woundf, . . .'• Lincoln was too great to hutc or to fear. He knew thai Ilia only lesson worth Icnrnlne />r worth leaching Is the lesson of m:i<jnaniinlty. He had accomplished his purpose to siive the Union, and lo !,lop the .spread of slavery, and lie wanted no revenge, in the disguise of "teichiiig » lesson.' 1 The North n.s well as lite Soiilh knavts today Una Lincoln was right, thai his death was a Brail Irngedy, because, had lie lived, no "Hc- coiutructlon" would have been visited upon the Ssiith, doing a damage and engendering u bitterness from which we have not yel entirely recovered. II Is not In the great American tradition to visit n. vengeful "reconstruction" upon Germany. We have prevented the Na/.ls from conquering the world, and we ourselves do not. want to conquer any jiconle.

And slic saw the befiltid-Oie- scencs preparation lor the coin- tny "wur-iti-peacc" that she Warns may culmitiafc (ji World War 111, T'n's is the story of Germany's plans to win the peace, plans that even now are oeina put into effect. ANTI-SEMITISM had provided Adolf Hitler with his first real success in the barrachs outside of Munich. His cosmopolitan associates remembered that just as they had met Germans wherever they traveled, they also met Jews. The Nazis early chose the anti-Semitic platform because, as Hitler's first press chief, Adolf-Viktor von Kocrbcr put it after lie had separated from the Fuehrer, "It furnishes an excellent international vehicle. There Is a certain measure of anti-Semitism in almost every country of the world. By assuming leadership over the anti- Semitic movement, Hiller intended to get his finger into every national pie throughout the world. And he was right." Hitter even deceived his anti- Semitic /ollowers. For many years a number of Jews held important posts in Nazi Germany. There is another angle to anti- Semitism which the Nazis have worked overtime: cupidity. By promising the small dealer, the unsuccessful doctor, that Jewish- controlled department stores and Jewish doctors would disappear under Nazi rule, they won the allegiance of the mediocre dealer or doctor whether his lack of .success had anything to do witli Jewish competition or not. * * * TOURING his rapid rise from paid • informer in 1919 to leader of a party that was winning seal in parliamentary elections only four years later, Hiller had fully realized Ihe astonishing power that words have over men. With this realization came his craving for publicity—for propaganda. He seized greedily on the studios of psychologists submitted lo him in Lanclsbcrg; on them lie based his mammoth campaigns lo win control, first o£ Germany, then ot the world. The psychologists talked much about the dissatisfied elements. Hitler knew them well. He himself, had been tortured with dissatisfaction in his days of poverty. But he knew that conditions other than poverty alone bred unhappy restlessness. His propaganda must reach every dissatisfied person in Germany and magnify his frustrations, whatever the cause. Women seemed more brittle, more imaginative than men. Openly the Nazis excluded them from politics, covertly they elaborated schemes with which to exploit women. The Nazis had won the lower middle- class women of Bavaria by pledging to respect Ihe "sanctity of family and religious life." (Their men had succumbed lo promises of spoils from the future expropriation ot Jews.) In their thorough quest of dissatisfaction, they sought out young women artists, not quite good enough to succeed alone, but glad to listen to men who told them of future wealth— when the Nazis seized power They went after idle rich womenj harnessed them to their evil- smelling carl of slander and intrigue, and found them docile and useful. * * * WHILE some Nazis traded on sentimentality, others deliberately turned men and'women Kuilty of sex irregularities into agents for the Nazi cause. The fact (hat many such held I\igh posts in Hitler's Parly, Captain Roehm for example, made Die Nazis popular witli abnormal ele- menls in other countries. Hitler was fully aware that the captain was a notorious offender. I have seen photostats ol letters' addressed to Hitler in 1023 warn- j ing him thai'co-operation with < lioehm and his clique endangered the national cause. Sworn statements attached to the photostats said that Hiller had shrugged off tho warning as "old stuff," ; By 1034, however, Hitler realized lhal Captain Roehm had secured a dangerous hold on the Storm Troops and on many members of the Party. He knew himself strong enough to come to terms with Ihe Retchswehr leaders on his own. So lie suddenly remembered fiochm's misconduct On June 30 ol that same year] Hitler personally arrested the man who had befriended him when he was penniless, to whom lie owed much of his career, had him thrown into jail and executed. * * » T>EING convinced that he himself had strong occult powers, Hitler directed the activilies o£ astrologers and fortune tellers as Nazi propaganda tools. Soon after the Pulschists swaggered out of Lasdsbcrg fortress, all sorls ol small magazines cropped up on German newsstands, purporting lo reveal the message of Ihe stars, forecasting happiness for Germany, provided, of course, tliat the local Nazi chieftains won whatever point Ihey were lighting for at the moment. Hitler, like the Kaiser, was certain that his mission came from God. He made that quite clear in an interview I had with him, when, he stepped forward and proclaimed loudly, "My will shall be done." I glanced quickly at Hcss and Hanfstaengel, both of whom stood near by. Tlicy gazed at Hitler raptly, as though indeed the Deity had spoken. Hitler repeated, "My will shall bu done," and I had no doubt that the sacrilege was deliberate. Then he dropped the oracular tone and explained very sensibly just why his will should be done. "I have 750,000 men behind me, ait eternally sworn to me. They are blindly obedient to me," he said. "The Republicans arc more numerous. But they arc divided. Therefore I shall be the slrong- est. My will shall be done." (To Be Continued! TRAPPERS ARE CATCHING PREDATORY COYOTES AND RENDERIN&THEM FOB AMMUNITION FAT...WJTH B!& ONES YIELDING 6 POUNDS. ANSWER: Yes.
