How to Fight Spies: France's Lesson to Britain [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
How to Fight Spies: France's Lesson to Britain LONDON, December 2. THE SCHEME OF SPY-MONGERING IS DN A SCALE THAT WOULD STARTLE EVERYONE COULD WE KNOW THE STORY OF ITS RAMIFICATIONS.-Lord Curzon, House of Lords. WE DO NOT WISH TO ENCOURAGE WHAT I MAY CALL A SPY PANIC IN THE COUNTRY, BUT WE DO NOT DENY THE GRAVITY OR THE DIFFICULTY OF THE PROBLEM.-Lord Crewe, House of Lords. Thus do the authorities admit the evil, and yet few can be found who are at all satisfied that the danger in our midst is being sufficiently guarded against. How France deals with the problem is revealed in the following letter to the "Daily Mail" from "An Englishman in France": It is an astonishing thing to those of us who have travelled to any extent in France or Bel unm during the war (he writes) to know it is possible for people, no matter whom, to walk, motor, and otherwise roam about on the roads along the east coast and other places where there are peculiar facilities for gathering and pending to the enemy...

Battlefield a Theatre of Mediaeval Obsession [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
: :Battlefield a. Theatre of Mediaeval Obsession S PETROGRAD, Decesnber2. The great European war has sent millions of people mad Europe is in a state of "bellicose psychosis nearing iaranoia,' "the war is more like a medimvalnmass obsession than a rational international struggle for power and glory." These are the conclusiont of Dr. Alexis Malt sef, expert in psychiatry, who is preparing a Sgiant inquiry into the Psychology of Slaughter. It is "arecord of the moral and intellectual perversions of the present war." fudging by a lecture read on his behalf at Odessa, Dr. Maltteif came to some striking -basic conclusions. First is that all Europe is .scad. S"Yevropa soshla suma"--Europe has gone out Of its mind.' "As far as mere madness goes, civilians are worse off than soldiers." With civilians the chief feature of bellicose psycho pathy are ferocity, credulity and hysteria. That is shown by the newspapers. "The sbldier is'saved by actfol and-work from these excesses."

LARKING ON THE WARPATH APPEAL IN AMERICA FOR AID TO SMASH ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
LARKIN ON THE WARPATH APPEAL IN AMERICA FOR AID TO SMASH ENGLAIND James Larkin, the Irish firebrand, has carried his hatred of England to the United States, and. in a speech at Fhiladelphia he appealed to Irishmen to send money, arms, and ammroni- ' tion to Ireland "'tor the glorious day of recko:' jng v'its Ergland.' According to a report in the "Public Ledgr," , he said: "'Men and women, give us moniey to buy guns, and by the living God who gave us L life we will not fail you, and we'll not fail the mother of our race. I plead with you. For 700 long and weary years we have waited for this hour.

Effect of the War Upon the World's Population [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
fetf the War pon the o A little more than one hundred years ago Thomas Malthus set forth the startling theory that there is a tendency for the population of the` earth to increase faster than the means of subsistence (says the Boston "Globe"). Since then there has existed a school of philosophers who have insisted that famine and pestilence and war are the checks provided by Nature to prevent human beings from multiplying beyond the point where the resources of the earth can support them. If this were the generally accepted point of view science would never have made the won derful steps it has made toward the stamping Scit of disease. If all men believed in the Mal thusian theory, the fight which has been waged continuously for conservation of natural re sources and of human life would probably never have been undertaken. Of what avail is the world-wide movement for universal peace, after allne cannot hastily and at the same time i? One coonot hastily and at the came time in te!lig...
HOW THE RHINE COULD BE CROSSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
HOW THE RHIIE COULD BE CROSSED. I But the Rhine in history .ha?s i?ver li?en anything of an obstacle to a strong French army entering Germany, and the time-hono:ed mode of crossing a river defended along its whole length should be successful, if vigorously adopted. The procedure is to make feint at tacks everywhere, so as to leave the.lefender in doubt of the regl place where thue rivr is to be crossed. At this point, troops must be thrown across to guard the making of bridges, and guns must be massed to support the troops by firing across the river, while a rapid con centration, concealed from the enemy, brings tp- troops to nsupport the first detachmento across, andi·einorce it mcore rapidly than sca the enemy, taken as Ie should be by surprise, and unable to denude other points of the/?iver of defence, as he cannot tell whether a point'" somewhere alse may not prove the real attack. Of course, in these days of enormous aresfcs and aerial reconnaissance, it is less easy to suerpri...
PROSPECTS OF AN INVASION OF GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
PROSPECTS OF AN INVASION OF GERMANY. The vital part of Germany is the Westphalian ,oalfield, where are situated the great iron works, which form so.large a portion of Ger man industry, and which suppor a great popu lation, directly and indirectly, and the credit and finance of all Germany, to some extent. Hut in war-time this region has ear greaser Im portance as the place of production not only at the guns, rines, and ammuntion required io such great quantity, but also of subsidiary ad luncts to war, like locomotives, railway rolling stock, and motor engines for aviation and road transport. When the turn of the tide comes, and the German flood of expansion ebbs, every eifort will he made to'delay the enemy from reaching Westphalia. This accounts-ior the prodigious eRforts put forward in Belgium to form a strong line of resistance from Antwerp, through Brussels and Antwerp, to Namur, south of which the Isleuse, running in a rocky gorge, forms a good desensive posltion. In the rear o...
IN THE EASTERN THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
IN -HE EASTERN THEATRE. In Poland a German counter stroke -has pushed the Russian centre back. beyond Lode, but seeing the ever-increasing number the Rus sians are bringing up, and their continued pres sure on the Austrians, this set .back is of little importance. Przemsyl is invested, Cracow soon will be, and the Austrian right iving is •- - - pushed back over the Carpathians, and the Russians are between it and its Germain allies.
THE SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
THE SITUATION. __ At the end of November, the situation in Europe was not much changed locally, although in effect meore favorable to the Allies than it had been a month before. The German bolt in Belgium has been shot and failed. No such attack as was repulsed during the last week in October can now take place again. The Ger man. losses alone are" enormous, but the failure to drive in the thin line of the Allied defence by massing far superior forces on the Ger man right, must have greatly injured German morale, especially as the critical blow was struck under the very eyes of the Kaiser by his own Guards, the corps d' elite of Prussia, who fell back, shattered in their attempt, by the stubborn tenacity of the British corps under General Hay.
Experiences of a British Recruit on "Sentry-go" [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
Expe~ie~eaa:s of a ~rI~Pish JEecrua~ t orm "6Se~t~a'~FgoS" SThereare few more tantalising moments in the existerice of the Territorial recruit (says John Raw in the "Daily Mail") than when he is appointed to the responsible position of "guard," and finds himself, after a few unimportant for malities, served out with fifteen.rounds or so of genuine service ammunition-no "dummies" on this occasion-which there is scarcely the slightest hope of his being legitimately able to * use. The bright brass bodies of the heavy little cartridges and the glossy round heads of the bullets seem, as they disappear into the ob scurity of one's pouches, to give a mocking little metallic wink, as much as to say, "There'll be the dickens to pay if you fire off even a single one of us without good and sufficient cause and, mind, tou must not even have us for keep sake pencil-cases. We are meant strictly for serious business!" Wise authorities ordain that Territorials who mount guard over places of strateg...
British Soldiers Play a Joke upon the Germans [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
British Soldiers IPliay a Joke upon fhe Germans The sergeant snored. For some hours there had been a InlL The great guns had stopped to take breath and the cave-dwelers in the French trenches were ex ercising themselves in the arts of civilisation. Some were shaving, some were playing cards, others were mending their socks. The sergeant was snoring. - By and by toilets were finished and most of the men began to smoke. The sudden ar rival .f Peace in that late inferno was an event of such rae and rereshing importance that no body had the least desire even to talk. Just to lie, smoke, and look heavenwards were bliss. The sergeant went on snoring. His midday, meal had been one of unwonted luxury. As he said himself, he had been living on superfluouas tissues for a week, "and even a man of my resources can't go on like that for ever." So he had lunched without stinting. He had slept about an hour, when the atten tion of the men was suddenly drawn to him by his extraordinary behaviour. T...
THE STRANGLING OF TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
THE STRANGLING OF TURKEY. T'he far reaching power of Command of the Sea is also well seen in the operations which were at once directed against the Turkish Em pire when it was mad enough to go to war. A British ship, the Minerva, at once steamed to Akabah, the Tnrkish town at the head of the gulf of that name, east of the Sinai Penin sula, and destroyed its barracks and stores, so that no Turkish army should use it as a base for attacking Egypt. Another attack took Splaie on a fort opposite Petim, at the entrance to the Red Sea. A larger expedition was sent • up the Persian Gulf, and after defeating a Turkish force of 4500 men, with guns, has oc cupied tthe whole of the country along the Euphrates up to its junction with the. Tigis, nearly 100 miles inland. This region is the ancient Babylonia, orice highly cultivated and fcrtilised by a great system of canals which an English engineer, Wilcocks, backed by a Lon don syndicate, has fortsome years planned to revive. This great underta...

Colonel Foster Tells of a Way to Invade Germany [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
SColonel Foster Tells of a Way to Invade Germany .By Colonel H. Foster, R.E., (Director of Military Studies, Sydney ,University.) LONDON, December b. VOL HI. FSTEn, ilL. A voyage over some 10,000 miles of ocean during this time of war presents a good object --lesson in the real meaning of Com mand of the Sea. Every pjort is busy with British trade; British ships are quietly ; ng their course,. withthe raw pro uan of the world for England, and cringing out the manufactures made from them at Home. Nothing shows that the Empire is at war. Covoreo by the pro tection furnished by the widespread net of naval force all over the world, the ships of the : Empire traverse the oceans without inter ference, and the invisible power of the White Ensign gives the same security to the ships of our.Allies. The great Hfet of 36 transports laden` with its precious freight of Australian and New Zealand manhood has reached Egypt in safety across 10,000 miles of open sea. Fresh transports are bringing ho...
A Local Authority's Views on the War [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
- *A Local Authority's Views on the War The December issue of "The Salon." the offic?al organ of- the Institute of Architects of New South Wales, contains a notable contri bution from" the pen of Mr. Thos. Gurney, B:E., A.M.I.M.E., upon the scientific aspects of the present struggle. We quote herewith: When the military history of the present stupendous conflict is given to the world by writers competent to deal with both the mili-l tary and scichitific problems of modern warfare, probably the outstanding feature of such a re cord will be the marvellous growth and deve lopment that has taken place during the last few decades in the science of military and naval engineering. For purposes of warfare, as wll as for the pursuit of commerce and the peaceful arts, man has at last conquered the three elements, and tb-day is carrying on war on land, in the air. on the sea, and also it may be added, in the waters under the earth. . The infantry, cavalry, and artillery of days gone by are now...
OUR STUPID PRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
OUR STUPID PRIDE. A critical examination of the technical re sources of Great Britain leads the "Deutsche Tageszeitung" to the conclusion that a British triumph is impossible Owing to our indolence and supercilious disdain, the outcome o0 our stupid pride,.we are, it seems. behind hand in d1l the necessary equipment of war:- "A few decades ago a war was won by the German schoolmnaster. This time it is Germany's technical men, whom. next to the army chiefs, she will have to thank for the victory. "This consideration applies particularly to Britain, which in this respect may be said to bi very backward. Of airships Britain pos ssses none whatever; the Gersan submnariens she is obliged to acknowledge as model craft of their kind, while her aeroplanes cannot vie with those of Germany. Nay, they are even ex telled by the Russians. "Britain's notable technical inferiority may Le explained on two different grounds: the stupid pride with which the British are in the labit of rejecting the o...
Japan to be Dominant Power in Eastern Asia [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
__Japan ~o beDrsnww o3e~p in ~tE'ae~ Ais~i Nobody knows how the map of Europe will be changed by this war. But in Asia there will be one all important result that one may predict with confidence (says the "Boston Herald"). Few persons imagined when Ser tian conspiratois killed an Austrian archduke that one of the direct results of the act would se. to make Japanese influence predominant in Asiatic affairs. Yet'that is what is happening, and the world will see it plainly enough when tlhe war clouds'haire' rolted .away and the na tions sit down to bind up their wounds: WIPING GERIMIANY OUT OF ASIA.

VERY GERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
VERY GERMAN. Last week the "Kolnische Zeitung" told how the British kill the wounded and rob the dead. ¶his week the '?T"agliche Rundschau" accuses us of using our own Allies as shlields:--'In a let ter received by the wife of a soldier at the front. the man writes that all prisoners taken at Dix rr.ude, whether they be Belgians, French. or co lored, agree in declaring that the British. al .ays placed them in the front, threatening to shoot them if they refused. Several of the blacks feigned death to escape being used as a shield for the British. How very English is all this !" And how very German the lie which ceclares it a fact.
What It Feels Like to be Under Shell Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
What It Feels Like to be Under Shell Irhee LONDON, December 5. The bombardment of the Belgian coast towns -nd villages has been the.chief military feature :of the past week or so, and the following vivid .account of a typical incident or series of inci dents was contributed to the "Daily Mail" by SW. Beach Thomas. :It is a strange sensation (he writes) to find p ourself in a village under shell-fire. The first shells are generally quite unexpected. The crash of friendly guns has been heard daily, and the oull boom of the enemy's guns so-m where remote. But these things are part of the routine. The beetroots are being pulled as usual; and the most serious conversation works round the question how much they deteriorate by being left in heaps. It requires a miracle to prevent inhabitants of the Low Countries main taining their laborious life. But the miracle is momentarily wrought when the first shells fall. The common sounds of the last three weeks are interrupted by a curious soft sw...
DROPPED THEIR OWN TEACHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
DROPPED THEIR OWN TEACHING. Lieut.-CoL Bek. the military adviser of the "Daily Express," has interesting things to say rcgarding the throwing overboard by the Ger rans of their own teachings. In East Prus r-ioa they are supporting th- right wing of their hont on the strongly fortified region of th-z It surian lakes, where they have concentrated a compar-tively small number of troops, which are sufficient for its defence. They collected the main strength of this northern army in the region round Staluponnen on the left flank, and from there started a most vigorous offensive against the Russians, taking the south-eastward Sl'rection. They did the same thing on the Thorn-Czenstochovo front. and began an offen sive with their left flank, taking quite an un favorable position for an aggressive movement in a narrow space between two rivers. "These two ampe says Lient-Col. Bek, show quite :learly that the Germans have forgotten the ad. vice of their military thinkers, and,.abandoning tneir...
