OOALA, FLORIDA, WEDNESDAY,
TEDDY SAYS THOSE WHO
Forest Hills, L. I., July 4. Declar
ing that those in America who cham
pion Germany's cause against the
cause of America are guilty of moral
treason, and are in fact, although not
in law, moral traitors, Colonel Roose
velt, in a fourth of July address here
today, pleaded for a single standard
of patriotism and loyalty.
"We are now at war with Ger
many," said Colonel Roosevelt. "For
over two years Germany has heaped
insult upon insult, injury upon injury,
on our people. We did not even dare
to prepare so as to be able effectively
to resent wrongs in the future. Our
supine inaction was partly due to the
folly engendered in our people by the
professional pacifists. But an even
more important factor was the dread
many of our politicians felt, not
merely of the German army, abroad,
but of German votes at home. The
selfishness and shortsightedness of
the American politicians were inde
fensible, and they were due to the
fact that the men who took the lead
in the German-American movement
sought entirely to subordinate the ac actions
tions actions of the country of which they
were nominally citizens, the United
States, to the needs of the country
for which they cared, Germany.
"Now we are at war with Ger

pacifists,, continue to champion Ger Germany's

which we are fighting. This is a moral
treason to the republic, and all who
engage in it are in fact, although not
in-law, traitors who have ,. no fright

ens. citi-ens. The time has come to insist
that they drop their dual allegiance,
and in good faith become outright
Germans or outright Americans. They
cannot be both, and those who pre
tend to be both are merely Germans
who hypocritically pretend to be Am.
eiicans in order to serve Germany and
damage America. At this moment
the vital thing to remember about
those half -hidden traitors is that to
attack America's allies, while we are
at death grips with, a peculiarly ruth ruthless
less ruthless and brutal foe, or to champion
that foe as against our allies, or to
apologize for that foe's infamous
wrongdoing, is to be false to the cause
of liberty and to the United States.
"There can be no half and half at
titude in this war, and no honorable
man can afford to take such an atti
tude. We are bound by every consid
eration of loyalty and good faith to
our allies, and any opposition to them,
or any aid given to their and our en enemy,
emy, enemy, is basely dishonorable as regards
our allies, and treasonable as regards
our own country.?
Colonel Roosevelt said that the
claim that it was natural for Ameri American
can American citizens of German origin to
favor Germany was "nonsense,' and
criminal nonsense to boot," and add added,
ed, added, "either a man is an American and
nothing else, or he is not an Ameri

Europe, but we are separate from all

nation, and we are bound always to
give our whole-hearted and individual
loyalty to our flag, and in any inter international

nation purely according to its con
duct in that crisis. It is both weak
and wicked to permit any of our citi citizens

just as un-American, to discriminate

It may be heresy In angling to sug
gest that a "fly" should smell like a
fly. These scientific experiments show
how large a part smell plays In the
food pursuit of fish. Bait, such, as
small crabs, was found and eaten by
the fishes two or three times as rap-

Aluminum Can Now Be Soldered.
The great drawback to the use of
aluminum for industrial purposes has
hitherto been that once broken or
cracked it could be mended only by
riveting or welding, a costly process,
for there has been no way of solder
ing the metal. At last, however, a
solder has been found that seems to
remedy this defect. This has been
tested by the advisory panel of" scien scientific
tific scientific experts In the British ministry of
munitions and reported upon so favor
ably that the comptroller of munitions
has called It to the attention of the
Woolwich arsenal and other munition
makers in England. T
The inventor has not made public
the formula, but states that it lsmere-
ly an alloy of common metals, blended
In certain proportions and applied In
the ordinarv wav with a torch. He
shows a series of photographs of a
large aluminum casting with a great
piece being broken out of it being

For welding aluminum a temperature
of more than 900 degrees Fahrenheit
Is necessary ; 350 degrees suffice for

Members of French Military Expedition
In Balkans Are Devoting Much

The French military expedition in

the armies of Napoleon and Marshal

interest discovered by the troops, has
gathered data that it is thought will
throw much light on the primitive his history

These columns have already collect collected

which they were discovered.
A new idea is that races of men may
be differentiated chemically, just as
they are separated by easily seen phy physical
sical physical or anatomical peculiarities of
make-up, hair, skin, etc. In the blood
of Germans a count of 4,570,000 white
corpuscles per cubic millimeter has
been made, while a similar count in the
blood of French has shown an average
of 5,500,000; and it Is believed that
other racial differences quite as notable
will be revealed when a wide compara comparative
tive comparative study shall have been made. The
study as suggested would include the
density of organs, viscosity of the
blood, and the general chemical rela relations
tions relations of the various parts of the body.
It is pointed out that the results might
clear up the mystery of the immunity
of certain races to certain diseases, ex
plain the cat-and-dog antipathies of
same races, and show us why certain
instincts and appetites are so persist

Steel for Battleships.
Nearly 15,000 gross tons of steel will
be neededxto build the 66 various new
battleships, destroyers and submarines,
bids for the construction of which were
taken by the United States navy In
October. When these are added to our
navy they will make it one of the most
formidable in the world. Some en
lightening statistics regarding these
naval vessels appear in Popular Me Mechanics
chanics Mechanics Magazine. In each of the four
new battle cruisers there will be 15,025
tons of steel ; in each of the four new
battleships there will be 13,761 tons
of steel ; in the 20 new destroyers, 325
tons of steel each, and in the 30 new
submarines, 186 tons each. A hospital
ship and an ammunition ship will need
4,000 tons of steel each; Taking $70 a
ton as the average price of steel at
present, these vessels mean an outlay
of not less than $10,000,000 for the
War on Mosquitoes.
The New Jersey Mosquito Extermin
atlon association has asked the legis

"The great curse of the laboring man
is intemperance. It has brought more
desolation to the wage-earners than
strikes, or war, or sickness, or death.
It is a more unrelenting tyrant than
the grasping monopolist. It has
caused little children to be hungry and
cold, to grow up among evil associates,
to be reared without the knowledge of
God. It has broken up more homes
and wrecked more lives than any other
curse on the face of the earth." Car Cardinal

And there will be intemperance as
long as the beverage traffic In alcoholic
liquors continues to exist.

BITION. PROHIBITION. The sixty or more breweries in the
state of Michigan, which under the
dry law close April 30, 1918, will very
likely be used for the manufacture
of denatured alcohoL The brewers
seem to be taking kindly to the sug suggestion
gestion suggestion of Henry Ford that they thus
utilize their plants. It Is believed that
they can make much greater profit on
denatured alcohol for automobile con consumption
sumption consumption than on beer for human con consumption,
sumption, consumption, and that-inany more men
will be employed.
Every license to sell intoxicating
liquor that hangs in the win window
