Phillips Simms (United Press Staff Correspondent) Stockholm, Dec. 7. (By Mail) Sweden is perhaps the most divi ded country in the universe of the war. One could not say with truth that Sweden is pro-Ally or pro-German. There are many fac tions and each looks at the great conflagration in its own way. Most everybody is anti-Russian a great many are anti-British a small circle are pro-German, but everybody is pro-French, even the pro Germans. A strange paradox but a true one. Still Sweden as a nation is neither pro-Ally nor pro- Prussia. The Russian antipathy is his toric. Sweden used to be on both sides of the Baltic. Russia took Finland and for generations Swe den has feared Russia some day would try to go further west, bla zing a way to open ports of the Atlantic. German propaganda has helped this feeling along. France, one and all say, has been the ideal country in this war, from the first gun till thelast. She has fought like a lion and unsel fishly. She has put herself, heart and soul into the struggle and has always fought strictly according to Hoyle. Her attitude has been nobility itself and not even the pro-Germans seems to hope for her defeat. Howrever, in this pro-German crowd, one hears that England is using France for her own selfish purposes. According to them England is aiming at world-domination and that if the Allies win and Germany is crushed, England will have her hand on the world's windpipe and can throttle it at leisure, commercially and other wise. And as proof of what England will do they point to the English blockade. Even now, they claim Sweden is being sorely pinched economically by the action of the English fleet.

Should England become all-pow erful, as she would in the event of a crushed Germany, what then would happen to Sweden? I asked President Carl Frisk "England has tried to arrange with Sweden to allow Sweden to restock on an ante-bellum basis. But the pro-German element re fuse to agree to this." So relations between the two countries continued to be some what strained. England refused contained in the form of a silicate is not without being changed, able to sweeten soils that are sour.
