MAJOR COATE'S MISSION.
AUCKLAND, May 5
That psychology is one of the most important factors to be considered in connection, with the repatriation of soldiers is 1 the opinion held by Major J.G. Coates, M.P. for Kaipara, who, after three years on active service, was delegated by Sir Andrew Russell to return to the Dominion in connection with the repatriation of soldiers. He arrived by the Remuera to-day. The men had.,been out of touch with ordinary life for such a length of time, he said, and had been treated differently and had been brought into touch with such conditions as to completely alter their perspective. [Propaganda and education were going to be' necessary, as also would be unlimited patience, but ultimately the soldier would be a better map than ever before.
