Stead's 'Review of 'Reviews * for Octo-ber-November cannot be commended to those of a nervous disposition, or to whom the larger vision has not 'been given. It is racsi melancholy and lugubrious reading and almost destitute of r, single cheerful, confident note. We have a good deal, however, of "very disquieting news," and "a very dark sky," and the editorial tone is supported by articles of an equally depressing kind. Men of the Nevinson, Bernard Shaw, Massingham, and Norman Angell stamp are not the men in whom the public need place the least confidence. Their attitude before the war has placed them outside the pale. It is the anti-military training gang of journalist? who are largely responsible for the "dark sky" which oppresses the editor. The sky, aa a matter of fact, is bright with the coming of a more glorious day. But no thanks to the Nevinson-cum-Masalngham-cuni-Norman Angell party. By the way, the German artillery has not proved itself "easily the most efficient," and German aeroplanes have not " far excelled the French." ' The Catechism of the War.' redeems £he,num!b«.r irpja lattaou.
