The litroc'Uies, said Dr. Hiilis, were not the- work of degenerates but all a pan of the German plan of war to terrori/e the people of opposing nations. Quoting from General \on Hoffman's work on "Law of Gorman War ou Land," he proved that arson, rapine acd murder and mutilation oC J boys and girls was a part of the Ger- ' man science of military operations. Age did not Sguro with the Germans. Babes m the cradle and men and women nearing the century mark aljke suffered in 01 (ier that the inhabitants might be terrorized. Producing what is known as a soldiers' token, a small disk carried by each man in bis vest pocket, Dr.'Hillis pronounced it the "most,damnable thing that has come out of fiell." This bears an inscription insuring the soldier that in the day of judgment he shall not be questioned as to the atrocities IHJ commits in the name of tlio fatherland. Following this up Dr, Hillis declared "the German kaiser's God is my Dev;l." The kaiser has had God and the Devil mixed for four years, he said. M"ucb evidence has been pres-erved to prove the atrocities of the Germans, said Dr. Hillis.
