William Mnwiing, 20, just returned from a trip around the world as a member of a freighter crew, found that, no matter where he wandered, the conflict was on everyone's tongue. In South Africa he talked with young British seamen from the Achilles and the Ajax. They then were searching for the Atlmirat Oraf Spec and ihe Admiral Scheer. From natives in Indian ports he jaiued the impression that revolution was brewing, and saw the British fortifications against a Xussiati attack through the Khyber Pass. At Bombay careful piloting was necessary in entering the harbor n order to avoid the hundreds of mines laid there. Russian sailors alone knew little of the war, he said, because of strict censorship of reading material by a ship's officer.
