A LETTER FROM LONDON I J
A LETTER FROM LONDON. BY "THOUGHT-READER." WESTMINSTER. "THEY SHALL NOT PASS." j The French invented that splendid phrase. "Ils ne passeront pas," somebody said when the German legions were being thrown against Verdun, and the inspired battle cry ran through the ranks of the gallant French- men like an electric current, energising them to all those superb deeds of heroism which culminated in the overthrow of the great attack, and in the bolting and barring of one gateway to Paris, which the German in- vaders counted so surely on opening. To-day -it is our turn to say They shall not pass," and though men do not walk about the streets of London repeating those four pregnant words, you can read their meaning in the graver mien, the tightening of the lip, the gritting of teeth wherever men meet together to talk of the great battle that now is raging. There have been no panicky moments this week like those of the Black Sunday in the early days of the war, when London was plunged into despair by a half-told story of the clash of arms; on the other hand, we have not gone lightly about our everyday work, as we did for nearly a week four or five months ago because we were not told, and did not realise, the gravity of those days of terrible fighting that followed the launching of the German surprise attack from Cambrai. To- day we are better informed about the pro- gress of the fighting, and although Sir Douglas Haig's despatches are short and lacking in detail, they do enable us to see a little through the fog of war, and to realise something of the terrible proportions of this greatest of all battles-the supreme effort, as it well may prove to be, between the forces of liberty and freedom on the one hand and the forces' of tyrannn domination, and cruel oppression on the other. THE ADVANTAGE OF KNOWING. I It is good that we should know from day to day how the fortunes of the great battle are swaying to and fro. The British tempera- ment responds best to frankness and candour. When our arms have been successful we have not straightway followed the hysteria of Berlin and given way to an orgy of flag- flapping and bell-ringing. When we have had to learn about reverses we have not turned for relief to the wailings of despair. The Lon- don way of taking the earlier news of the great German offensive has been in every re- spect admirable. It was inevitable that there should be successes for the enemy in the initial stages of the attack. In every great offensive, begun by either side, in the last three years, the defending forces have always been compelled to yielcl at the outset. Granted a sufficiency of heavy artillery pre- paration and a sufficient weight of men to storm the opposing positions, the momentum of the first attack is bound to win ground. The Germans have prepared for this great offensive for many months. They concen- trated thousands of guns for it—imagine the effect of one great length of front with a gun every fifteen yards—and they transferred the immense reserves of men just freed from the Russian front for this effort. Everything was to be done as usual, "according to plan"— art advance to a certain point one day, to an- other point the next, and so on. To keep to the j»Ian they have sacrificed their men—the men trained from boyhood to serve as cannon fodder "—as grass before the scything devas- tation of our defensive gunnery hut they hove not achievc.d what they "pf out to do. Our men have had to yield ground, our men have fallen in great numbers; but already we know that their labour and their wounds are not in vain, for they have "blunted the Pfhe of the German attack, they have upset the (•cman plan, and they will continue to upr-et that plan, because they, too, like then* comrades of Verdun, have sworn "Thev shrill not riass. WHAT WE CAN DO. I I heard early this week a man asking-not nervously but in the right spirit of anxiety to lend a hand: "Is there nothing we can do to help at this fearful moment? He repre- sented, I fancy, a pretty larg e section of the stay-at-home public, and I cannot do better than write down the answer which a Member of Parliament—a Member of the Ministry— gave to the question. "Yes," he said, "there is much that we can do. First, let us be of good courage. Let us, in face of anything and everything, be British. The tide of battle may I run heavily against us for days, perhaps for weeks. If that should come about let us be careful to avoid playing- the German game. We have faith in our cause, and we have faith and confidence in those who are uphold- ing it. That is the real foundation for vic- tory and if we continue to remember that we shall endure to an end which must be vic- tory. Let us remember the glorious example of spirit and courage bequeathed to us by that brave British General who died facing fear- ful odds so far back as November, 1914. On a terrible day, when it seemed that nothing could stop the Germans in their gigantic effort to get to Calais, John Gough was watching the enemy swarming over a low ridge. I think, sir,' one of his staff said, it is all over.' Gough turned, with eyes ablaze, and exclaimed: God will never let those devils Gough was right; and his words hold good to-day, if only we English- men remain true to all that we take pride in. A PERIL AT HOME. Peril there is," the Minister continued, but not peril in the field or on the sea. The peril is that faint hearts and selfish interests here at home may betray a weakness that will advantage the enemy. To achieve victory" we must put our whole strength forward. If the, Government, needs more men for the fighting forces-as it does-there must be no sectional claims from this trade and from that trade- the miners, the engineers, or what npt-for exemption. That sort of thing is Bolshevism pure and simple, the manifestation of that spirit which has betrayed the democracy of Russia and handed it, bound and helpless, to tl va forces that seek to dominate the world with military ruthlessness. When the house is on fire you don't stop to quarrel about pre- cedence in passing along the buckets of water —the thing to do is to fight the fire. Europe is ablaze with war; for God's sake let our people realise that unless every difference on domestic or industrial questions is set aside, and every ounce of strength and determination put into the effort to quench the war flames, we shall be faced with the blackened ruins of it all our days and leave them as a hideous legacy for those who come after." All of which means that when we say "They shall not pass we mast, each one of us, do everything we can to create the obstacles- physical in thff field, atmospherical, tempera- mental, industrial at home—which will make it impossible for them to pass. The Kaiser's hope is that if he fails to beat our Army—as he will —he may yet succeed in wearing our people down to a readiness to accept a German "peace." But here he misjudges us once again; the moral fibre of Britain is being proved in thSse anxious days, and by it we shall win through to victory no matter Ue*r long and how hard the road.

BARRY BOXERS MEET IN TOURNAMENT IN FRANCE
BARRY BOXERS MEET IN TOURNAMENT IN FRANCE. We have received an interesting ac- count from Company Sergeant-Major Wilson of a Divisional Boxing Tour- nament which recently took place be- hind the lines in France, when two Barry boys, who were big pals, faced > each other in the final for the cham- [ pionship. The combatants were Pri- vate T. Woodgate (87085), Welsh Regiment, and Private C. R. Calla- ghan (16377), South Wales Bor- derers. Both put up a fine show, Woodgate hitting like a horse," and Callaghan came up smiling every time." The result was a draw. Botti lads are up the line now keeping the Huns back.

His parents were married in romantic circum- stances, and the union proved a singu- larly happy one. Lady Romilly was the only surviving sister of Sir Philip Grey-Egerton, and her marriage one August day in 1897 to the late peer was a society surprise. Both parents died in 1905.
