The terms offered to Germany will
be known in a few days. They will
be severe, and should be severe, but
it will not be well for the Allies any
more than for the Germans if they
are too severe. Unless the Germans
change their way of thinking, they
will ever be a menace to the world.
To mak pariahs out of them, to load
upon them a burden of debt they can
not carry, will be a sure and certain
method of keeping them in their way
of thinking. It will pay the Allies to
give them some of the mercy they
withheld from others, to give them a
chance to live in comparative comfort
while paying off their great debt and
to see a better future for their chil
dren, who are not responsible, and
also to get out in the world and make
an effort to win the good will of other
peoples. There are some Germans
who never approved of the acts of
their government, and a good many
who sincerely regret them. These are
undoubtedly greatly in the minority,
but if they are given a chance they
may leaven the lump.

The Tallahassee correspondent of
the Tampa Times says: "The Times'
expose of the existence of nepotism
at the Marianna reform school has
begun to bear fruit. At a meeting of
the board of state institutions, the
charges were given full consideration
and were found to be substantially as
made. That Superintendent McClane
will be given instructions by the board
that will put an end to the conditions
is the least that is expected when
definite action is taken. The only de
fense made was that the wife of
Superintendent McClane is not per permanent

intended that she should be. She was
said to be serving only until a com

board, said one of the members, will
not countenance nepotism at Marian

Our district school board seems to
