With military preparations of every big power approaching n maximum in August—lhe World War'' first week of August, 1914—noih London and Paris concentrated on completing ilielr security front by bringing Soviet Russia Into a Uirne power political and military alliance Intended to offset lhe threat of a new war.

UlO well ns Britons flared over a wide area In the Far East as Tokyo police guarded the embassies of both powers during a big demonstration denouncing "Great Britain, America nnd Rnssin" as "om common enemy."
