nza reported todny is not accidental
recklessness but a deliberate new Aus
trian policy.
"Frightfuluess" hns not been tjc
Austrian method.
Hut it is now extremely probable
that Austria has decided that the time
has arrived when Jtalv can be terror
ized into quitting the war. With the
failure of the Italian ottensives, indi
cations of profound discouragement fol
lowed. Moreover, it is remitted that
this pessimism led to n fracas in the
Itnlinn cabinet session in which books
were hurled at one minister's head.
In addition to these signs of a weak
ening Italy, there are indications that
a pueace taction is quietly working in
Rome, urging a separate' withdrawal of
Italy from the war. There is no doubt
that tho joyous spirit of certainty
which marked the entry of Italy into
the struggle, now no longer prevails.
