ABSTRACT
Discusses the verdict of the citizens of the U.S. upon the renewal of war between Germany and Great Britain; Rejoicing for the non-involvement of the American soldiers in the war; Unity in being thankful that American good repute was not compromised by any share in the motives and any responsibility for the consequences of the French and British tour de force; Apprehension on the U.S. refusal to sign the Treaty of Versailles and on the recovery of that independence in foreign policy, which they had partly abandoned when they became one of the Allied and Associated Powers; Details of the conditions of the Treaty of Versailles; View that by remaining neutral and by insisting on the payment of the debts from her former Allies she would irritate all the economic and political sores of Europe and render impossible their cure except by a surgical operation; Claim that the American government has the power enormously to relieve the tension in Europe and to strengthen the hands of those Frenchmen and Englishmen who are working for reconciliation and restoration.
