Transcript Jacob H. Schiff, banker and publicist: It is evident that if we do not come to the aid of the elements in Russia who heroically battle to subdue the forces of disorder and anarchy, the present regime, which cannot remain permanently, will surely be followed by reactionary rule most likely as undesirable as was that of the Romanoffs. (Ibid.) Gertrude Atherton, the noted novelist, in an article entitled "Time as a Cure for Bolshevism," said: The fact is that all civilized Europe stands in terror of Bolshevism, not because the people care the least whether their governments ever see their fifteen billions [loans to Russia] again, but because Bolshevism means chaos, wholesale murder, the complete destruction of civilization. If it had been really animated by the true theories it professed; if it had solved the problem of poverty, let alone of human happiness, if it had brought freedom and prosperity even to one class, it would have triumphed; no doubt of that. But the Bolsheviki, having seduced the ignorant masses of Russia with lies and gained control of the banks and ammunition, soon showed their hand. They are merely our old conventional anarchists under a new name and with power for the first time to loot and murder on a huge scale, instead of plotting a king now and then, or exhibiting their unfriendliness to the law by safe-cracking and murdering for pleasure or for hire. The Bolsheviki of Russia and elsewhere are merely the criminal classes organized. . . . I wonder what posterity, reading history, will say to the statesmen of the western civilizations for not having sent an army into Russia long ago and exterminated Bolshevism at its source. ... It would have been a simple matter. . . . (New York Times Magazine, March 16, 1919, p. 3.) The following prominent men issued an open letter, in April, 1919, asking assistance for the "Russian armed factions fighting the Lenin-Trotzky regime'': Daniel Carter Beard, founder of the Boy Scouts, author and artist. Charles Stewrart Davison, lawyer and author. Dr. William T. Hornaday, director, New York Zoological Park. George A. Hurd. Lyle E. Mahan. Dr. William T. Manning, Rector of Trinity Church. Cleveland Moffat, author. George D. Pratt, banker and capitalist. George Haven Putnam, prominent publisher. Dr. Edgar Fahs Smith, Provost of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Benjamin I. Wheeler, President of the University of California, and others. 21
