THE MILLENNIUM? Rogers of the New York “Herald” declares that the millennium is certainly here when the little Peace at any Price lamb lies down beside the German lion. The expressions of the Kaiser's cubs are well worth studying. The dore is an emblem of peace is not quite so fashionable as it used to be. Perhaps it is because drawing doves becomes tiresome after you have done, say, twenty or thirty. Perhaps the bird has been depicted so often of late in a battered condition that there is very little left of it. However, Kirby in the New York "World” remains true to the dove and depicts the poor thing doing its best but heavily weighed down by a German helmet
AN ANGEL IN DIFFICULTIES When the cartoonists get as good a chance as the Pope's proposal offered to represent peace as an angel they make the most of it. Pease in the Newark “Evening News” sees the angel of Enduring Peace entering the Bluebeard's closet of Prussianism and starting back aghast at the sight of the murdered wives: Honor, Mercy, Justice, Decency, Treaties, Pledges and International Law. Vanderhem in the "Nieuwe Amsterdammer" depicts l'eace as anxious to take the world up again in her arms but saying pathetically: "I can't see where I can get hold of it!” The Dutch cartoonist has preserved his neutrality with extreme care and skill
Darling of the New York "Tribune" sees a delightful similarity between the Pope's proposal and the angel maid who attacks her work with the best will in the world and a highly commendable energy, but will have to learn, her anxious employers feel, to sweep under the bed. There are so many things there that must be cleared away before we can really have peace. Sweeping up the war is all very well, but it isn't enough. There are still a few scraps of paper which the ercellent papal maid seems to have overlooked
England and Holland and Svitzerland and Italy all contribute their rier points to this European council on Russia, opened by the London "Erening Vergarith picture of Germany presenting the peace dore to Russia. Fritz erplains that "the elephant is throun in içith the dore.!" At the right is “De Amsterdammer's" riere of the bear tempted by the wily jor to put his pau in the cleft oak
Gernier The Zurich Nebelspalter" would hare Russia turn the tables on Germany. “This east wind will soon upset everything." And Italian confidence in Russia is erprest in "420," Florence, in Iran's dismissal of the Kaiser's proposals—“By your works I know you.""
"The lorely tin of syrup” hides a bottle of poison in the Manchester “Sunday Chronicle's" cartoon of German peace proposals. The London “Sunday Telegram" interprets John Bull as saying: "Ah, my dear Iran, it takes time to get free. But you'll keep your word!"
AIR RAIDS AND REPRISALS
THE BOOMERANG Germany's increasingly successful Zeppelin attacks on London hare roused the British people to a vigorous demand for reprisals. General Smuts, South African statesman and member of the British War Cabinet, struck the note of popular feeling when he said: “We are dealing with an enemy whose culture has not carried him beyond the rudiments of the Mosaic law, to whom you can only apply the maxim of 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'” Roy, of the London “Evening News," has sketched below his interpretation of Germany's reactions
A NEUTRAL'S RIGHTS "De Notenkraker," Amsterdam, presents this cartoon of a somewhat ignored point of view on air raids. “Drop them here,” says the aviators, "these are only the neutrals”
IMMUNE? "Well, it's been a wonderful protection -so far!” comments the foxy Kaiser under the umbrella of “British Forbearance" in this cartoon by Williams, published in “London Opinion”
