GREATEST ENEMY OF MAN IN WAR HIS IMAGINATION Fntlsrue Duty nnd Working Pnrtlr* Serve to I'revent Too Much Re alization of Horror*. (By Associated Press. J BEHIND THE BRITISH LINES IN FRANCE, August 13-?Neither fatigue luty nor working parties are popular vith the soldier, but they serve a great mrpose, because in modern war man's greatest enemy is likely to be his own imagination, in the heat of action he las no time for thought. The horrors >f war cannot force their way through i lis preoccupied mind. Hut later, when 1 he excitement has died away, the re- ! iction sets in. and a realization of tho' last begins to depress and deaden his , vitality, for the memories of a modern inttle are more terrible than the ac ual experience. The only antidote to this depression j lies in action and activity. Action pro vides distraction for tho mind. It is this that the working party supplies, ?tnd in spite of the generally abusive terms applied to it by the soldier, it Is really doing him a service. I is the British soldier's historic priv ilege to complain, or "grouse," as ho ealis It. But his complainings must not be taken to Indicate a state of low morale. Exactly the reverse, for it Is an unwritten law In the Itritlsh army that a man may complain oul.v when thelngs are going well. In danger and adversity there Is no com plaining. only that dogged determina tion which makes the British soldier such a formidable opponent.

This absence o. , cohesion has unquestionably been re sponsible for several serious mishaps which might, without exaggeration, bo called disasters. The paramount need of the allies at the moment is greater and closer co- j operation. In the past there has been a deplorable, and perilous lack of fore- J thought, prevision, and co-ordination of effort. Co-operation Is absolutely essential if the pressing problems of tonnage, which involves bo many im portant matters, such as tho transport of men, munitions, and food supplies, and of man power are to he speedily and satisfactorily solved. The fullest and best utilisation of all the allied re sources, financial, material, scientific and human, will only be possible when complete unity Is attained. It is tho surest and shortest route to decisive victory and perrna-nent peace. I News of Suffering und Tragedies u Homo Causing Disaffection Among Karl's Troops.1 GROWING HATE OF GERMAN V Terror of Prussia May ; Keep Gov ernment From Making Peace, liut It Will I\ot Keep 1'coplo From Throwing Off Yoke. WITH THE BRITISH ARMY IN ITALY, August 12.?Depression has laid hold of the Austro-Ilungarian fighting on the Italian front, and with depres sion has como distrust of their allies, the Germans. On tho day following the Italian success I got orders to be prepared for 300 wounded and sick ? prisoners, who wero to bo treated bo fore being passed to the base. When they arrived I was .struck at .once with tho contrast betwen thein and tho Austrian soldiers I had known a year ago, and even a few weeks back. They were no longer confident of vlc ; lory, and almost without exception they denounced tho criminal folly- of tho ! Germans, whom they held to bo re sponsible for the prolongation of the I war. The first prisoner I talked to was a major of about thirty-six years, with J over three years of war service to his ' credit. I had the surprise of my llfo when I asked for his name, for he' , bore the good old Scottish name of Keith. Seeing my surprise ho offered I a few biographical details by?way of j enlightenment. He Is descended from a scion of the Kintore family who took service with tho Austrlahs after serv ing under an illustrious kinsman who won fame with the Swedes In th?* days of Oustavus Adolphus. Knowing how strict are the orders against troubling patients with political questions. I tried to keep Major Keith off the sub j jort he wanted to speak about, but It was useless. Ho was bent on talking ' of what was uppermost in his mind j and in the minds of nearly every man among the prisoners - have dealt with. 1 He volunteered a remarkable staic l racnt, "To-dny Austria has been brotiRht | to the verge of ruin by Germany," he declared. "The people of the dual mon | archy would fain have peace. They would fain get hack to the old rela [ tions with Britain which prevailed be | fort the Austro-Prussian War of 1866. < "The Emperor Karl Is secretly pro British, but the country Is overrun by German secret agents, who are ready to make trouble at the least sign of an understanding between Austria and the entente powers. It is common knowl edge that on several occasions recently our government has declared Its readi ness for peace, and have been told that on the day Austria makt-a a separate peace with the allies, or even opens negotiations for the purpose, a million Germans will march on Vienna. "It is this therat that keeps our gov ernment allied to Germany. The posi tion is rapidly becoming intolerable. All over the country the people are crying for peace and bread, and our government is not able to give them either, because Prussia wants the bread but does not want peace. . "In the great towns discontent is spreading, und when I was last In Budapest there was rioting almost daily in front of the town hall. Wom en and children demonstrated In favor of peace and food. They were at tacked by armed police and shot down. Some of the soldiers took exception to the brutality of the police, and a number of the police were shot dead. For months past the munition workers have been refusing to keep up the out put; In consequence, we have been urged by headquarters to economise in shells. The delivery of shells neces sary to keep up reserve stocks has ceased altogether for some of our di visions. "The working-class population have found their rations reduced by about, one-half of what they used to be In prewar days, and tho cost of every thing has gone up so much that In spite of the reduced quantities allowed It costs twice as much as it did before the war to feed a working-class family. Wages are only slightly higher, and in some trades are even lower. "In any of our great towns you may see processions of women and children | crying for food or crying for the re-| turn of husbands and fathers who have gone to the war, or gone to their death for Germany. The people know well that It is for Germany, r. rather, for Prussia, that all this sacrifice Is be- ' ing made, and they are Inert?singly bitter against the Prussians and their Kaiser.
