The British Labor party, iximin.-tll.v bt'liind (he 1 Chamberlain (rovernmcnCs war policy, is beginning to have xomi; qualms about ihc war. The iiarty has under consideration Hi Kcpitralc hilions for \vitb()raw;i| of .support. Tin: various will Ije detail cd at the Labor Parly's Whitsuntide conference Jlay 13. War leaders obviously arc disturbed. The hostility of the Labor parly would seriously menace Britain's home front. In (he meantime, other pacifist groups, emboldened by Ihc lengthy prelude to aclual wiu-1'iire, are becoming loo articulate for the novcniim.'iil to ignore. Chief among these groups i.s She Public Economy League, formed during (he World W a r t o promote sound economy. Us members argue Unit a long war might conceivably mean the defeat of llillerism nnd the prostration of an exhausted Germany, but that England, too, would be economically and morally bankrupt. On top or a;i this, II. G .Well.s, who still enjoys an appreciable British audience and who has been a constant critic of British war aims, has come to th cconclusion that the government is "grossly incompetent." Wells said Dial a recent British government, publication showed (hat "we are lighting- for the British empire and imperialism." "If this is tjio .sail!' we are lighting for," he said, "(hen it is foolish to right." The trouble i.s nol so much a conflict -wilh the Chamberlain government as with the fundamental principle' of war itself. While (he military has been getting up steam for the big offensive, the populace of Britain has had time to wonder whether it's a smart idea to have a war at all. The World War brought this cynicism and eventual disillusion, loo—but not until it was all over. This time it is cropping up before the war has .seriously begun. If looks hopeful for Ihe peace crowd.

History Repeals Itself Ten years ago, (lie federal government undertook to count ils dli/.cns. No (|Uestions concerning incomes were asked in the I'.KH) census. No one wanted lo know how many times women of (he household had boon married. iVeverlheless, census enumerators ran into trouble. Many of them had difficulty getting the right answers, according to reports, because citizens didn't like to have their lives pried into. A New York man was arrested for answering the questions flippantly, lie countered by saying the whole Ihing was silly anyway. Sounds a little iainiliar, doesn't it'.' Learning the Hard Way Too many of us have lo learn things the hard way. Safely, for instance. We've go I to bu jolted good and hard before we really understand that accidents arc pretty horrible. We read about tragedies such as lhat of the 27 fruit pickers who were killed when a train smashed (heir (nick near McAllen, Tex. We nod sagely over .sound advice. We study statistics. But, too often, all these things aren't enough. We've got to see cars run together, heads cracked open, blood spilling before we're convinced. , A lot of catastrophe could be avoided if we just took the safely people's word for it lhat auto accidents are not pleasant. If everyone remembered the rules and loosed j, t a |jm c L . x ( r; , common .sense, (here wouldn't I H! ;l tiling for any motorist to worry about.
