Mr. Meldrum was speaking of tiic need of education in present times, and had alluded to Wilson's actions in calling round him such men as Hell and Edi- son when Germany was threatening last winter. The men of education are the natural leaders of the world, for brains plus brawn are greater than brawn alone. And in conclud- ing his remarks, lie said, "Britain will will. She must win, and to do so she has called round her to direct the war the scientists and educated men wiio are able to checkmate every move of the enemy.
