Foes to Save ^Vorld From Despot-

Paris, Tuesday. "March 11.—"We
have reached a crisis in the affairs
of the world,'' said Secretary of State
(Robert Lansing at i banquet given
tonight by the inter-allied press club
in honor of the American peace com-
missioners. Mr. Lansing was emphatic
in his statement that the allies must
feed Germany and give the Germans
au opportunity to sell their products
in the foreign markets if the danger
of bolshevisin was to be avoided. He
painted a vivid picture of conditions
in the war zonee of France and i
pointed out that it was not through
pity for Germany but to the allies' uwn
advantage to see that anarchy was
prevented in tie former German em-
Mr. Lansing said:
\\ mighty victory hare been won.
The imperial armies of the central
powers have ceased to threaten.
They no longer exist. Scattered and
broken they have returned to their
homes, where hunger and privation
await them—hunger and privation
-which are the consequences of their
own blin<f faith in evil men who led
them into this unrighteous war.
Not to Be Pitied,
""Germany has suffered bitterly,
is .suffering bitterly, and Germany
is entitleed to suffer for what she
has done. She has paid a fear-
ful penalty for the cri-ne of
plunging the world into four
years of blood and fire. Today
starvation and want are the oor-
tions of the German people. Vio-
lence and murder stalk Enough

"We may be disposed to pity those
innocent among the Germans, but our
piey is almost dried up when we con-
sider w hat France and other nations
have had to suffer from the invading
armies of the Teutons. Ten days
after 1 landed in France, in Decem-
ber, I made it my duty to visit the
(battlefields of the Marne, Aisne and
the Champagne. I saw the ruins of
Chateau Thierry and Fismes; 1 saw
the stately and historic cathedral of
■Rhiems, a monument to the ferocity
of the Germans; I saw the scarred
and upturned fields of Champagne
and deserted places where once had
(ben thriving, happy villages; I saw
hamlets along the Marne whose
crumbling walls bore witness to the
frightfulness of war. No man could
see what I saw in those days without
bearing a burning indignation against
those responsible for such ruins and j
destruction—without an intense and
undying hatred for them.
>ew Job for Allies.
"iMy friends, France has endured
unspeakable woes with a fortitude
and determination which excite the
admiration and wonder of the world.
And. now that the great conflict
is ended and the mighty war engine
of Prussia is crushed, we have new
problems to solve, new dangers to
overcome. Political chaos and out-
lawry have supplanted the highly-
organized government of imperial
Germany. Over the ruins of this once
great empire the flames of terrorism
are sweeping westward. It is no
time to allow sentiment of vengeance
and hatred to stand in the way of
checking this conflagration which
will soon be at the Germans borders
and threatening other lands. We
must change the conditions on which
social unrest feeds, and strive to re-
store Germany to a normal, though
it 'be a weakened social order.
"Two words tell the story—-food
and peace. To make Germany
capable of resisting anarchy and
the hideous despotism of the red
terror, Germany must be allowed
to purchase food and to earn that
food, industrial conditions must
be restored by a treaty of peace.
It is not out of pity for the Ger-
' man people that this must be done
and done without delay, but be-
cause we, the victors in this war,
will be the chief sufferers if it is
I not done.
"You may demand reparation as
much as you please, but unless the
! German people are furnished mate-
I rials for their industries and com-
I mercial opportunities to sell the prod-
; ucts of labor in the foreign markets
i and unless the laborers have food,
l Germany can never pay, even in part,
I for the evil she has done. Further-
more, if the present state of chaos
continues to grow weaker there will
he no responsible German government
with which to make peace; there will
he no government strong enough to
carry out the conditions of the treaty
No 'I'line to Lose.
"I say to you men of France
and men of America, and to you
men of the ailed powers that there
is no time to be lost if we are to
save the world from the despotism
of anarchy, even as we have saved
if from the despotism of autoc-
racy. We ought to make, we must
make peace withoutl delay and
ships laden with food must enter
the harbors of Germany. We have
reached a crisis in the affairs of
the world. We must meet it with-
out passion and without permitting
our judgment to be warped by a
natural and unavoidable desire for
vengeance on a nation which has
committed such atrocities as those
the Germans have committed.
"There cannot b3 any douibt in the
minds of thinking men as to the dan-
ger that faces the nations. We are
victorious and yet victory on the bat-
tlefield is not all. We must use our
victory wisely or we will lose even
more than we have gained. It is no
