For Instance, wo always used to
say that wars aro (ought by tho
workers and wage earners, that tho
workers not only pay tho bills ot
war but furnish tho cannon fodder.
I have said so myself many times
an always believed It.

Great Britain is concerned, anyway,

Aristocracy Gives Its Mood
To the appeal that the nation Is
In peril, the aristocracy has marvel
lously responded; few families among
the old English nobility havo been
untouched by tho casualty lists.
Tho landed families and the well-to-do
have responded; thousands ot
their sons lib dead in Flanders.
Professional men and what aro
called the clerical classes, salesmen,
bookkeepers, clerks, secretaries and
the like, have responded; hundreds
of thousands of them are now under
The wage earners havo not simi
larly responded; where they are en
rolled they have for the most part
taken up arms for other motives than
an overmastering enthusiasm for
their country's quarrel.
This fact Is never printed nor pub
licly referred to. For tho first tlmo
It now finds Its way into typo. And
yet It Is most significant, it exists
exactly as I have stated It. and pri
vately any well-Informed Englishman
will admit it
The Poor Not Much Interested
This Is one great reason why nine
months of this war have passed and
Britain's army is still Incomplete.
This is why enlistments lag and the
totals must be kept secret. This Is
that "calm and unruffled demean
or' of the populace that many writ
ers have mentioned. This is the
"apathy that at tho enlistment meet

The wealthy and comfortablo class
es aro deeply and terribly wrought
up by tho war, Thty feel tho issues at
stake; without hesitation they offer
themselves and ihclr sons to their

most startling phaso ot tho situation, .
to an AmcrlcAn audience the most '

am going to deal chiefly with thts

Englishmen ot snobbish proclivi

tho British worklngmon is too igno

what Is Involved. That Isn't true.
The British workingman understands
what Is Involved better than the Brit

Yesterday I put tho question to tho
keenest observer of these things In
the British Isles, and tho person
best qualified by study and sympathy
to Interpret tho worklngman's mind,
and this was the answer:
"In tho first place, tho workers
aro not moved by the war becauso
they havo learned that was Is notUim)np; 0tnlle physicians mid stir

has been growing among them a con

they havo been attending Internation

against the Idea of going forth to
shoot the comrades they have met."
