Haggard, to London Morning Post, conveys that sympathy for England In our war with Germany has of late decreased in the United Stntes. and gives four main reastms for this; (1) The activity of German misrepresentations, (2) our press censorship, (3) that England Is using the United States for her own advantage, and that wo hnve not shown proper recognition of the work thnt they have done for us; and (4« that Belgium has been made the victim of English diplo macy. nnd thnt Englnnd has done nothing fr.r hiii It would appear that the first of these rea sons — German misrepresentations — embraces | the third nnd the fourth.

PASSWORD THRILL. NIGHT MOTORING ON WAR ROAD SPIRIT OP THE MIDDLE AGES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 20 February 1915
PASSWORD THRILL. NIGHT MOTORING ON WAR ROAD SPIRIT OF THE MIDDLE AGES. John Prioleau writes in the Daily Mall:— 'Halte la!' The car slows down and comes to a stop, with Its Hlnglc headlight throwing n tempered beam on a big earthwork built ; across the road and on the bayonets and muddy uniforms of the sentries. The sergeant slowly apnroaches the car, without speaking, and flashes his lantern on , the faces of the occupants. When he is quite close the driver or the passenger in the near side front seat leans over towards him, and, when their faces arc but an inch or two apart, he whispers. 'Valence' In the sergeant's ear. 'Ron! Alios!' The lantern swings like a railway guard's lamp, and the car moves on. creeping cautiously between the ends of th-- iwo earthwork#. Beyond lies a mile or two of free road. and then comes another stop more silent sentries, and a further whispering of the word. The romance of modern warfare Is very seldom on the surface. It is much too grim and serious n...
