"undertaken to explain and amplify her curious and Instructive observations on'tne use of alcohol In modern armlesr- It appears that lit the address that, caused so imich commotion She was 'concerned ohjy to lay beforo her audience certain facts Indicating "a revolt against War taking place In the midst of war Jtscif," Now, as she intimates In the current "Inde pendent," she la not satisfied that this revolt la general, and fears that In exprpsslng her own views on .the extent to which alcoholic stimu lants aro used she "unfortunately gave a mistaken impression." Her dealro, therefore. Is til mako clear exactly what she meant on that oc casion. To begin with. It never occurred to her for a moment that tho doses wero ndmlnlstcred "because tho men lacked courage" Healdes, aho waa not thinking of the common run n( men. On the contrary, i'one of Ine 'hideous results of tho war. ' sho says. "Is the Inveterate tendency or the 'average' man to fall Irito tne spirit of hot retaliation." It may be gathered that Miss Addams has rather more respect than less tor ex ceptional men, the men who have to be whipped up with spirits before they will fix havonets These nrr the more rcllncd modern sort, and It Is evidently In these that Miss Ad dams sees Indications of the great revolt against war. Hhe Is thinking of "a type of sensitive rrlan doum less found In each army." and ror this tpe. she still holds, "stimu lants might be necessary." When, therefore, she heard that rum, etner and other spirits were In fact used, she concluded, not that tho Imblbern ovCre timid or cowardly, but "tnai the stimulants Inhibited the sensi bilities of a certuln tpe of modern min " This Is nil extremely Interesting, only, considering how stronglv the old wnv of distributing spirits to soldiers has been condemned by army men or experience, the proper distri bution of alcohol on these critical occasions must call for very nice dlsrrlmlnitlon. When It Is consid ered, moreover, how very uncertain the action of alcohol Is, tho task must be enormously complex. How ever, It Is obviously encouraging tn the pacifists to sec tint the chiefs of modern armies In spite of their oppo sition U alcohol are obllc;pd to use it In the end. It shows that the sen sitive modern type of man Is already too strong for them, and when the revolt Is general they will be at their wits' end.
