London, England, August 2. Four
groat powers of Europe, Austria, Rus
sia, Franco and Germany, aro now en
feaged in actual warfare, but two of
thorn Gormany and Franco have not
only not declared war as far as is
known here, but havo not even severed
diplomatic relations. This is despite
i.- fiot fli-if nnrmniiv'a iilMnintuiii to
... . , I A. . Moodv has accented a position
i with the Postal Telegraph Company
The explanation of this would appear
to be that Gormany and Franco are
tach seeking to throw upon tlio othur
Mio onus of beginning tho war. In fact,
while tho nations of Europo aro i lying
ut each others throats, they aro vying
with oach other in protesting thoir do
mes to maintain peaco and they ropu
dlato tho responsibility for plunging
tho wholo continent into lighting.
In this curious situation Franco, ac
cording to British opinion has the
strongest justification. Sho certainly
was tho last to mouolize and seoms to
l.avo taken tho greatest precautions to
avoid frontier collisions.
