Against German Ministerial Petition
World War I; Babel Proclamation; Council of Defense; German Language; Anti-Germanism; Religious Services
Asthalter speaks against the German preachers, for "they should be doing everything in their power to convince us that they are real Americans, instead of stirring up trouble for themselves." So, apparently, these things are given a broad, public airing.
