WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1939 Passenger Space At Premium 'Fighting Anthony" camps With His Terri tonal Unit At Bcaulicu BY MILTON NBA Service Stan Cora>|ioiici«tiL LONDON, Aug. 28.—When it was nimouneed the British government •was going to conscript for niilllla service youths just past their 20th birthdays, the London papers made much ado ab;ut democracy. They quoted Kipling's old wheeze about "cook's son, Duke's ton, son cf a belted Earl," etc. But if any Duke's ewe Iamb or any Earl's son and heir has been doing any training, the press has been singularly reticent about it And the London papers are not i usually tcngue-tied when there L news of the upper classes to bo broadcast. But there have been two exam pics of deration to duty nmde b' men who bel;ng to the ,, p ,, e crust by relation to the aristocracy by wealth and by social ami political position. Anthony Eden, who res!»ned from his great post as Foreign feccretary. and DuiT Cooper who resigned from his job as First, Lord of (he Admiralty, each because he disapproved of Premier chamberlains foreign policies, have now returned to military duty. Each could have plcu that he had done his full 1 duty, in the last war and that it was now up to the younger generation. Each could have pled—as so many do—that their duties as members of tlie Uittsc of Commons took up all their time. Each could have pled tliat he did not enjoy the most robust health. But, they did nothing of the sort. As each had demanded that Britain take a firm stand in Europe, even at the ccst of war, each deemed It was his job to get back into military harness. BOTH NOW HACK IN UA'IKOftM In the last war Duff Cooper was a junior officer in the crack Grenadier Guards. Frequently mentioned in despatches, he "won the coveted D. s. O.-tlic Distinguished Service Order. He wound up ns Captain. Master biographer of Lord Halg ami of Talleyrand, he has now forsaken his beloved bo;ks and has rejoined his old regiment as a subaltern. As Lieut. Cooper of the Third Buttalicn of the Grenadier Guards he was,Jp.'J)<!..secn in full fighting Kit an the parade grounds at Al- dcrshot. He took part in Die march ol some miles lo a spat of country where the Guards played in a war game. Anthony Kden in the great war served in the King's Royal Rifle Corps and also -\\ound up with the rank of Captain. He has now joined the London Rangers as u Major and 50 is second in command of the 2nd Battalion. He is living in a bell tent at Beaiillcu where his battalion is having special training hi field work, gunnery practice and a ccr- lain amount of motor transport work. COMHONtttS RESENT HINTS THEY'RE "SOFT" The lads of the "common pecplc" and of the middle class, who have been conscripted, have been working under specially iiard conditions. The weather has been s-j, continuously bad «llh rains every day that in many camps the ground has been flooded. The London papers, at a loss for •summer stories, have been filled with yarns which might, tempt the Germans and lUiJinns I? think the youth of England was composed of mollycoddles and'mama's darlings. Long yarns have been pnnlert about the b;ys suffering from the damp and about, how tney complain about the food. As a matter of fact, the lads have sh:\vn the same old stout British spirit. They have been Inarticulate about I he press stories, but found n welcome spokesman the other day in the Rev. A W Orr, chaplain of the -East Surrey depot. Speaking at the church parade of the militiamen cf the East Surrey Regiment, Rev. Orr protested against the idea that Ihe youn" conscripts wished things to be made easy. From his contact ttittf them, lie round they disliked (his talk that had been going en about making things soft and easy. Such Mlk was an insult. He found the. young men wanted" their trainin" « be as hard and as stern as that of (he regulars. thousands of American tourists at .he ,, Me of the Mnnhh crlrt Iliousaticls Of Americans May Encounter Difficulties Reaching Home MY MIMoT~BuoNNEH ? tllollsail(ls ° r (rappwi iu tuis Cavalcade'" Brings Old-Time Actors Back to Screen Inquiry revealed Uml M ships for American mid Criimdlan arc solidly becked for (ha . three weeks.
