(United Piess staff correspondent.)
London. Sept. 20. Great Britaiu will
not force her sons into the army, ex
cept as a last resort.
But, if conscription is necessary, it is
unlikely that a "civil war" or a "so
cial revolt ' ' will result, despite the
free use of these terms by its oppon
ents. This is the judgment of neutral ob
servers, who have had an opportunity
te study the British mind. Iu this con
nection, they remember the general Bri
tish proneuess to threaten TclHlion
hen confronted with a possibility of
enactment of objectionable measures.
They recall the time when David l.liyd
Georgo's national insurance scheme witt:
proposed, and whec hundreds of thou
sands swore they .jird never "b'K

submitted when it came to a show

The finding of a collection of keys,
