"THE WORLD AGAINST HER."
NOT SO SPLENDID
OVERTURES TO NEUTRALS.
ITALY NOT TO BE TEMPTED
LONDON, December 3.
The ' Standard' publishes a despatch from Rome, stating that the German Government have not despaired of seeing Italy take a well-baited hook. The Italian pavers declare that it needs more to draw Italy into the net than the latest enare.
An article in the 'Deutsche Tages Zeitung' invites Italy to step in and take Tunis, row that tho chance offers. That journal points out that the Turkish, Austrian, and Italian navies could easily match the Anglo-French warships in the Mediterranean. Energetic action would result in a quasi-automaiic acquisition which would be legitimate owing to the predominance of Italians there. The article adds; "A little reflection will convince Italy that all she needs is decision to do and dare." Italian papers claim that the article was directly inspired by the German Foreign Office. APOLOGY TO PORTUGAL: LONDON, December 3. Reuter states that Germany has apologised to Portugal for the invasion, of Angola. PROPAGANDA IN CHINA. (London ' Times" and Sydney * Sun' Services.) LONDON, December 2. Peking reports that the Germans are redoubling the intensity of their Press campaign, and are flooding China with pamphlets with a view to creating suspicions regarding Japan's attitude towards Manchuria.
