Employment Bureau to be Established
for Assistance of German Subjects
Thrown Out of VVork by Manufacture
of Arms for Allies
AN announcement of the Imperial Ger-
man Government, as reported by tele-
8T8m a few weeks ago, calls the attention
of German subjects abroad, especially in
the United States of‘America, to Article 89
of the German Penal Code.
German subjects who wittingly lend help
or furtherance to a Power engaged in war
with the German Empire, or do anything
liable to injure the Empire or its Allies, are
guilty of high treason according to this
Palragfapll and subject to imprisonment
with hard labor up to ten years or to cus-
tody in a fortress. That this applies also
to actions of this nature committed in the
Linited States is clearly expressed in Ar-
hcle 44: Paragraph 22, of the same code
which says that German subjects are pun-
ishable for acts committed abroad.
Tile announcement adds that German
Sllblects who are employed as engineers,
h‘hf“’91'S. or in any other capacity in fac-
t01'les which manufacture war supplies for
the enemies of the Empire and its allies,
9-Ye not only guilty of high treason in the
Sense of the German Penal Code, but also
charge their consciences with heavy moral
There is no doubt that since a great num-
ber of industrial plants in this country have
take“ 1111 the manufacture of war supplies,
destined exclusively for Germany's enemies,
’h3"Y German subjects have unexpectedly
and undeservedly become involved in a
mohally difficult position in regard to their
duties towards their Fatherland.
This is especially true of Germans whose
Scientific and technical training has ob-
tained for them a position in industrial life
Which is of particular importance for the
mdividual concerns and which cannot be
‘iaslly filled by others.
Although it may be presumed that Ger-
man subjects abroad are ready to make
‘he Same sacrifices as their fellow-citizens
at home, it is recognized that difiicult eco-
h0.mic circumstances might cause many to
fall to take heed of the announcement of
‘he Imperial German Government.
g it is the duty of all Germans, whose P0‘
sition is more independent than that of
Olhefs among their fellow-citizens to whom
‘he Problem in question applies, to help, ad-
“Se, and lend their support.

“THE ISLE OF LIES”
E accompanying verses were written
by a young German waiter who prior
to the war had been engaged in a West
End London hotel. Being of a very feeble
physique and also ailing in health, he was
not interned. The verses were written in
answer to certain scurrillous lines by one
C. E. B., the staff poet of that most vicious
of the Harmsworth newspapers-The
Ecwiing iVcu'.r. And you may rest assured
that they excel the original so far as the
feeling and quality of the verses are con-
cerned. The waiter's name is , but
it would prove inadvisable to publish this,
as the unfortunate fellow is still in the
hands of the British. It is to be hoped,
however, that you will print the verses so
that the English may realize that the “Kul-
tur” of a poor little German waiter is at
least superior to that of one of their so-
called poets, whose lamentable effusions in
this war have proved how little inspiration
they are able to draw from an unholy

VVe have slain the brag that your change-
Floats safe o'er the whole North Sea-
You skulked in your ports-safe health re-
For your squadrons huge and free!
But we called you out with an iron shout
Where you sat at your ease to defame
The men from Kiel arid the German steel
That brought your shores to shame.
To your futile fleet you add the bleat
Of “women’s and children's lives l"-
Your beef you carve whilst you long to
Our mothers and babes and wives.
You whimper and cry when your people
But your foul lips do not tell
Of our children slain on the eastern plain
By your Russians red from Hell.
You would not dare a tight that's fair
On land or on the sea.
But your lies. have length and your only
Is mass and quantity.
“VVe are shy to meet with a hostile fleet?”
Go ask the Chilean shorel
Where you could not blare of a. victory
VVith forty ships to four!
Lightly indeed and with little heed
You challenged our youthful might-
The jingo jobbers and crafty robbers
That juggled you forth to hght.
