High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 27, 1940, High Point, North Carolina The War today pressure bearing on Chamberlain so that he May be forced to Speed up Tempo of War or lose Public Faith by de Witt Mackenzie pressure on the British government for great initiative in prosecution of the War has reached a Point where it would sem that Premier Chamberlain will have to meet the demands half Way or run a risk of losing Public Confidence. There Are reports in London that the Anink but Active prime minister will at least comply with the insistence on the creation of a Small inner Cabinet of four or five ministers who will be charged with the conduct of the War. The present War committee comprises nine too Many say critics for top Speets efficiency. Whether such a move would he followed by in the sense of starting major naval or military offensives is problematical. Or. I Chamberlain has been working along lines which he has Felt were most Likely to bring Victory in the Long run. And once Bis mind is j made up not even the Faith that is Able to move mountains can Budge him. Lam a i t Vul i i i the premieres latest comment j on this Point was March 19 in the House of commons when he de-1 dared in his meticulous language and with glacial finality which so often freezes argument Quot when the responsibility rests j upon the shoulders of the government we cannot be hustled into adventures which appear to us to j present Small Chance of Success. Much Hance of danger and perhaps in considering the premieres viewpoint it is important to note that his safety first policy Hasni to been due to any Lack of decision on his part. On the contrary he has been pursuing definite lines. And he would seem to me to have been motivated mainly by two reasons 1. The conviction or Strong Hope that the Allied blockade coupled with propaganda will bring Victory without great bloodshed by cracking the morale of the German people and making them turn against Herr Hitler. Fok Ali. 2, the fact that neither Britain nor France will reach the Peak of preparedness for hand to hand fighting so to speak before next year and perhaps not until 194 2. Despite the criticism of chamberlains policy he presents a staunch figure in commons which still accords him a sound majority of supports also there is no question that Chamberlain has the courage to inaugurate a War of Quot action if he believes it called for. The present political situation is an astonishing example of Repe tit Ion of history with some Vai l j actions. During the world War in the fall of 1916, prime minister Herbert Asquith one of eng-1 lands might personalities a Camel under heavy fire fro the press Aud political opponent for what was characterized As his Quot wait and see policy. It was maintained i that he say Quot yes or i and that decisions were allowed to i hang fire until too late. In the midst of his squabble i Germany made a whirlwind assault on Rumania which recently had joined the allies. David Lloyd i George who then was minister of War. Urged the Cabinet to Aid till mania but nothing was done Ana the Balkan state was crushed. Cai Sud split that event so affected Lloyd George that it resulted in a split in the government. Days of tense crisis finally ended in Asquith a resignation and the appointment of Lloyd George to the position of prime minister a the Post in which he made his everlasting name. I have said that the present political situation is repetition of history with variations. One great difference is that Asquith had lost his hold As a Leader had lost Faith of his followers. Chamberlains leadership is still Strong and the country still is prepared to follow him but Many influential people object strongly to his delayed Quot action program. London has a play for nudists.
