Gertrude Bell. Sydney Bridge forges a link. Throughout Australia the opening of the Sydney Bridge has been the chief topic of conversation for the past weeks i but few have realised that in the building of that Bridge aus Tralon has a link with one of the most remarkable englishwoman who Ever lived. The Bridge says Melbourne Leader was built by the famous British firm of Dorman Lfong & co., of which the late sir Hugh Bell was a director and he was the father of Gertrude Bell. Gertrude Bell Scho Lar poet historian archaeologist Art critic Mountaineer explorer Gardener naturalist and High ser vant of the state lived to become a Power behind the throne of Iraq Persia. She was born on july14, 1s6s, in Durham at the residence of her Grandfather. Sir Lowthian Bell Iron master and Colliery owner and she died at Bagdad on july 12, 1926. When she wits 3. Years of age her Mother died but for her Stepmother she had a wealth of affection i her love for her father was the Rock on which she built her whole life. Rarely has there been such affection and understanding Between Man. And woman As Between this Brilliant father and his Brilliant daughter. Oho of her contemporaries at lady Margaret Hall Oxford wrote of her Gertrude Lowthian Bell was the most Brilliant student we Ever had at lady Margaret Hall or indeed at tiny women s College. She took our alien its by storm with her Brilliant talk and her Youthful Confidence in herself and her belongings. She Lind a most. Engaging Way of say ing Well you know my. Father says so and so As a final opinion on every question under and lady Bell added to this to the end of her life Gertrude with the same absolute Confidence would have been capable of Stilt Quot lug the same authority As Gertrude Bell was Early introduced to a Circle of interesting people and through her father and Stepmother and her uncles and aunts she became acquainted with writers diplomats artists and men of state and travellers. They were anxious to talk to this Brilliant attractive girl with her Crown of Auburn hair and vivid eyes and wherever she went she made friends. She was fearless and once she had formed an opinion she kept it in the face. Of Strong opposition for honesty of thought and Independence of judg ment were part of her character. Later in life distinguished foreign diplomats sought he r opinion and acted on her advice. As a Young girl she moved in London society went to Oxford at. 1-8, and captured one of the most -.Brilliant. Firsts of the year studied danced rend and paid a round of visits to country houses. She was fond of clothes and Lead the Money to follow fashions. In the Spring of is 9 2 she first tasted travel in a trip to Teheran Persia. She began then the letters which Over Many years gave her family an immense amount of pleasure and later when they were published in Book form delighted All lovers of Good letters throughout the world. It was a Wise plan to publish these letters and whoever reads Vliem finds in them a huge store of information Given in the most delightful manner imaginable. They ten too cae Snoie Story or Cert Rune Bell s life for to her family and friends she told everything that she did. To her writing was almost As natural As breathing. In her first visit to Teheran she fell in love with Persia. In this country she wrote the men Wear flowing Robes of Green and White and Brown the women lift the veil of a Raphael Madonna to look at you As you pass. Wherever there is water a luxuriant vegetation Springs up and where there is pot there is nothing but Stone and desert. Of the desert round Teheran Miles and Miles of it with nothing nothing growing ringed in with Bleak Bare mountains crowned and furrowed with the deep course s of torrents. I never knew what desert was till i came Here it is a very wonderful thing to see and suddenly in the Middle of it All out of nothing out of a Little cold water Springs up a Garden. Such a Garden Trees fountains tanks roses and a House in it the House of which we heard in fairy tules when we were Little inlaid with tiny slabs of looking Glass in Lovely patterns Blue tiled carpeted echoing with the sound of running water and fountains. Here sits the enchanted , solemn dignified clothed in Long Robes. He comes Down to meet you As you enter his House is yours his Garden is yours better still his Tea and fruit Are yours. A we have no hospitality in the West and no manners " she Learnt persian fell in love with the poems of Hafiz and translated them beautifully. Five years later she went to Berlin. She followed that with a trip round the world with her brother Maurice. Then she went to Switzerland and had iter first taste of Mountain climbing and in 1900 came to Jerusalem and travelled into the desert on camels accompanied by arabs. She had set herself to learn arabic and was enthralled with her new life. She went Riding to look for roman. Ruins she went up mountains. An hour before Dawn she wrote to her father Ayoub and i started off Riding with a Shepherd to guide us to the top of mount Hor you Realise that no daughter of yours could be Content to sit quietly at the Bottom of a Mountain where there. F waa. One she became acquainted with sheiks and slowly established the Friendship which later was to become important not Only to Lier but to great Britain. She was entertained to Coffee in the tents of the sheiks and talked the strange. Politics of the desert. She came Back to England and Wentwo Switzerland for the mountaineering. She did this thoroughly As. She did everything else. She climbed most difficult mountains and Nide a name for herself by climbing the hitherto a climbed North East face of the fluster marhorn. Five years later she traversed Syria and Asia minor. She went from Italy across the syrian desert i just before the War she made a Long and extremely Literee Tang journey to Hall. In the War years of 1914, 1915, and 1916 she did War work at a Laane. I Ndon. And Lac Litel a / Bujdud and there she. Stayed until her death with a Short trip to eng land in 1925. It is impossible to Over estimate the importance of her work in these years. Shev went alone on her desert Jour Neys accompanied by her faithful servant Fattouh and her arabs and they pitched their tents by night and moved on desert in Tho Early morning. It was not All easy going. From the syrian desert she wrote to her father when i went to bed u Hurricane was blowing. I woke from time to. Time and heard the Good Fattouh hammering Inbe tent pegs and. Wondered if any tent would stand up to. That Gale. About an hour before Dawn Fattouh called to me and asked whether i was cold. I Woko in Surprise and. Putting my hand out Felt the Waterproof Valise that covered me wet with i lighted the Candle and saw that it had drifted into my. Tent a foot deep. The Sharp air. Is wonderfully de Licious. I think every Day. Of. The syrian desert must prolong your life by two years. We were off at 5 in the morning in bitter Frost. Can you picture the singular. Beiqiu to of these Moonlit departures the frail Arab tents falling one by one leaving the. Camp fires blazing into the night the dark masses of. The kneeling camels the shrouded figures bind ing up the roads shaking the ice from the water skins or crouched Over the Hearth. For moment s warmth before count ing Wallah Wallah of the. Old sheikh knocking ashes out of his Nar Gilleh. Are we ? so we go out across the dim wilderness sheikh Muhammad leading on his White Dull. The sky ahead reddens and fades the Moon pities and in sudden splendor the Sun rushes up Over the rim of the in 1 91 6, the Arab intelligence Bureau at Cairo study ing the relation i of one tribe with another she was sent to general Headquarters intelligence at Meso Potamia where Lier i wide knowledge of the movement of the tribes. And the temper of Eastern races proved of the greatest imaginable help tothe men at. Headquarters. She was sent to u assist sir Percy Cox at bag dad. They were years and Gertrude Bell interviewed Hie Many hundreds of. Arabs who visited head quarters and Learned their business. There were Many difficult and extremely delicate. Matters to decide ,. And Gertrude Bell s advice was always became really an Oriental the government from making Many a mistake because she " knew both arabs and turks and knew just How they should be Han tiled. She. Inter viewed sheikhs and calmed their anger and brought 1, them to see. The government View. She worked in tremendous heat often with the. Temperature at 1 20 Deg. But though frail her immense enthusiasm and her love for the people of the East carried her through mrs. Harrison who visited Gertrude Bell in 1923, wrote when i was first in Bagdad in 1923 i had the. Privilege of seeing Gertrude / Bell. On Many. Occasions and of having several Long talks with her. The first time i met. Her was by appointment at her office in tie administration building of the High commissioner hear the British Resi Dence across the Tigris from tie present City of Bagdad. After waiting for a few moments was ushered into a Small room with a High ceiling and Long. French win Dows facing tie river., it was the until Iest room i \ seen chairs to Bleb and sofas being littered with documents,1, Mips Pam pm i incl a Nova in Lilno Liah to pal Mph. And arabic. It a desk piled High with documents that had overflowed on the carpet. Silt a slender woman in a smart sports frock of knitted silk Pale Tan in color. As Slie Rose i noticed that her figure was still Willowy and Graceful her delicate Oval face with its firm Mouth and Chin and steel Blue eyes and with its Aureole of soft Grey hair was tie face of a Grande Dame there was nothing., of the weather beaten hardened explorer in her looks or frock Mayfair Many ners and this a s the. Woman who had made sheikhs tremble at the thought of the English her smile was completely disarming As was the gesture with which she swept All papers from the sofa to the floor to make room for me. Gertrude Bell saw dramatic events in Persia. She was at the heart of things when an Arab Prince came to the kingdom of Iraq and she became a close personal Friend of. King Fai Sal. Many recognised her. To he a Power behind the throne and on Many occasions she wits summoned to the Palace so that the King might talk with her they were always Good friends. Her special pleasure was to visit the Kings farm. It was so heavenly she wrote to her father to ride through grass and Flowers gardens of purple Salvia and Blue borage and Golden mullein with Scarlet ranunculus in Between. After we went. Out. For a walk through the crop his majesty rejoicing Over Ilia splendid hemp and Barley and wheat. L. And then we Sut in the pleasant dark till in the hot summer of 1-926 Ger Trude Bell worked very hard in establishing a museum it Bagdad. The Bui d tos of n museum. For Iraq was to her. A labor of love but she worked too hard. As Well she continued to work As Oriental Secretary and her frail Constitution could not stand it. In the Early morning hours of july 12, 1926, she died in her sleep and then to her family in eng land came expressions of grief from All Over the world from King and Queen of England and the k4ng of Iraq to the humblest worker in Ner tamers collieries. Tie High commissioner of Iraq wrote of her she has for the last ten years of her life consecrated All tie indomitable Fervour of her Nind to the services of the Arab cause and especially to Iraq. At last her body always frail was broken by the Energy of her s Oul. Her Bones rest where she had wished them to rest in the soil. Of Iraq. Her friends Are left Kef few la la up go it european debts to United states. American attitude to default. When Europe grows tired of sit w Ting like patience of a Monu ment waiting for America to change her mind on the question of War debts she will presumably step Down Uhd declare that be America s men Tal condition what it May for the moment having no Money to pay with she will he a Trible to pay says the Washington correspondent of the London morning Post while Europe May use the term moratorium or perhaps Tempo Ary postponement the United states will talk of default and repudiation and there will be an interest log series of what the Trun Suilun tics term reactions in the various centres of american life. The administration first of All. Will be dignified hut will do nothing. It will in All likelihood Issue a state ment to the effect that All previous agreements and treaties Are still As far As the United states is concerned valid and As much obligations of the european Powerss before. It will in fact restate its rights under exist ing treaties very much As it. Defined its rights in China some weeks ago. Up on capital Hill various extremely unpleasant noises will be Hoard. Congressmen have been wait ing for an Opportunity of Ibeling Hasty to Europe for some time and will Welcome the Opportunity presented them. The quintessence of their argument will be we thought you were gentlemen i but we see you Are. adjectives such As Slimy i Tricky deceitful thieving will be freely applied. An accusation frequently hurled will be bolsheviks and the suggest Tion made that since America refuses to recognise the soviet government because it will not pay its debts had Slie not better put the european nations also outside Itlie Pale. There May be suggestions that colonies should be annexed or credits confiscated congressmen having Learned by experience that such Semi humorous proposals always get beneath the european skin. In the end nothing will be done about it for there is really nothing that Enn be done a fact which helps explain congressional anger. Effect discounted. As far As the financial world is. Concerned the reaction will be nil. The effect of such a declaration has already Heen largely discounted. A Man. Whose former position As president of one of new York s bigger financial houses entitles his opinions to respect remarked when i questioned him about repudiation i imagine it will cause England More anguish to do than it will harm her having been done and added that in his opinion Bier credit would not suffer. A naked sword of suspicion be tween Europe and us said a Well known american political writer when questioned him on the effect such a declaration would have on the general Public. It would be a. Shock. From which this country would take years to he be. Of course entitled to his opinion but the american Public in Many centres appears already to have decided that Europe will not Puy. It has been told so frequently by its political leaders that Europe has duped the United states that even if by some Miracle All debts were paid this year the harm would already have been done. Many Are convinced that the final 250,000,000 dollars a year�50,000,000 at Par which Europe is trying to shift to the backs of. American taxpayers represents Only a fraction of the amount already shouldered to help pay Europe for. Her War. Certain tendencies which Are. Al ready in evidence would however be hastened. America would become still More nationalistic and isolationist. She would boast that if the rest of the world were sunk beneath the sen a fitting punishment she could still carry on very nicely an very nearly her old level of pros perity., Trade would grow less. And Lees Rind Money would not he Lent abroad or perhaps even for a time invested abroad in foreign Industry. Would England be in the same boat As the rest of Europe at pre sent and it must be the first time in history America is suffering from an attack of xenophobia and great Britain is not t he principal villain. Another question which might be asked. Is won t the elections change matters is not the present attitude of Congress due to the tact that it is just prior to the elections in America unfortunately it is always just i prior to elections which the Constitution requires should be held every two years and As for the coming election changing matters one thing which is certain is that however Broad minded or internationally minded the presiden tial candidates May be the Congress men in the constituencies Are going to vie with each other in the Fervour of their vows to steer Clear of foreign Wiles and save the american taxpayer from shouldering any More of Europe s burdens. If America had kept her head above the tide of depression As Tor example France has things would be different. When her head is above. The tide again then she will turn to consider Europe 4f by that time there is any Europe left to consider. The remedy appears to lie in Europe s hands and to boil Down to this can she stand Belog called Nasty names or would she rather die first Stop pointing out that his specially waa Dairying Laade or.
