The Austrain Unrest IS IT GENUINE? (Published in The Times). [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 25 January 1918
15 IT GENUINE? (Published in The Times). ( The Times in a. leader, says: "Caution is still necessary in as sessing- the importance of the Austrian unrest. The copious flow of German reports does riot show the exact origin orseope of the movement. The reports do not answer the main question of how far the manifestations are organi sed with the assent and tacit acquies enee of the Austrian authorities. It ' may be considered advisable to give I the suffering masses their ?-"heads in their demand for bread and peace, if only to bring pressure -on- Germany to grant Austria supplementary food supplies, and to strengthen the Aus trian negotiations at Brest Litovsk by the popular cry of no annexations, which might facilitate an Austrian f solution of the Polish ciuestion. If [the movements spread to Prague, Buda Pest and other non-German centres it | may become clear how far it is genuine potentially and revolutionarily."
