What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

GRA.SS RANGE, MONTANA, THURSDAY, MAY 3, 1917. True German -Americanism. The Chicago Tribune recent13 published the following lettei 4hich breathes the true spirit and patriotism of millions of German -Americans: The Editor Tribune: My emo- tions tell me one thing at this awful time, but my reason tells me other things. As a German) by birth it is a horrible calamity that I may have to fight Ger- mans. That is natural, is it not so? But as an American by pref- erence I can see no other course open. We are urged by sincere paci fists like Mr. Pinchot a to Adopt i\a vigorous policy 'or defense , and protection, but no war.\ But attack is sometimes the best protection. For 25 years Germany has shown dislike for the United States— the Samoan affair, the Hongkong contretemps, the 'Manila bay incident, the unguard- ed words of the kaiser himself, and, lastly, the Haitian contro- versy in 1914. Whether it is right or not, pleasant or not, the fact -remains that the interests of the two countriew have frequently con- flicted. And it has not been from mere commercial or diplo- matic friction. It is because their ideals of government are abso- lutely opposite. One or the other must go down. It is for us to say now which it shall be. Because of my birth and feel ings beyond my control I have no particular love for the French and less for the British. But by a strange irony of fate I see those nations giving their blood for principles wkich I hold dear, against the wrong principles of people I individually love. It is a very unhappy paradox, but one I cannot escape. I do not want to see the Allies tri- umph over the land of my birth. But I do very much want to see the triumph 'of the ideas they tight for. It sickens my soul to think of this nation going forth to help destroy people many of whom are bound to me by ties of blood and I friendship. But it must be so. It is like a dreadful surgical ope ration. The militaristic, undem- zreater liberty and opportunity , under the stars and stripes. i ['he Unit States, to which they have sworn allegiance, having , been drawn into the war,- the situation has changed. All over! the land German societies and. individuals are proclaiming their! loyalty to the flag and their lovel and devotion to all that it stands for. Theii• sons are enlisting to establish and defend a principle more heart searching and sacred , than the ties of kindred and the land of their birth—a true democ- racy—to become the heritage of millions yet untArn. As in our civil war brother may oppose brother on the field of battle, out stern as is the decree of fate the cause of freedom to mankind far transcends all other consid- A•ations. GERMANS TO GET WILSON'S SPEECH , Paris, Apr. 21. —Finished proofs of pamphlets containing a German translation of President Wilson's address to - congress, which will be dropped over the German lines by allied aviators and scattered in the streets of all German cities and towns within flying radius, were yeceived here today. The pamph lets are of f9ur pages, measuring 10 .by 12 inch(is, with . the parts of the speech already published in Germany Printed in black and the portions suppressed in Germany printed in red. There are 136 lines of black print to 294 lines of red. The American flag, in red, white and blue, measuring three liscfive ir he, adorns the upp3r left hand tirst page corner. As the color work requires three passages through the press, copies will be struck off and completed in bat- ches of 10,000, the first of Which .yill go to the American ascadrille ocratic demon which rules Ger 'which has already dropi el large l - j many must be cast out.
