LABOUR AND COM- PULSION. SWANSEA VALLEY ORGAN'S FRANKNESS. WORKING CLASSES WILL ACCEPT IT. "Llais Llafur," the Swansea Valley Labour organ, has a plain spoken article on the ques- tion of compulsory service, which will meet with general approval, and is of increased significance as appearing in a Labour organ. It says :â "We have to defeat Germany, and tha.t we shall do if many other liberties, far more vital to British institutions than the voluntary j system, have to go into the melting [Kit. In order to achieve victory over the Central Empires we have to keep up a steady supply of men, tor venrs ii necessary. Compulsion .)f single slackersâof whom there are sonis in I the wa.na Va.I!eyâwU] giv? us enough men for ten weeks, the Derby scheme will give us all the ifieti c need for a further six months or more. After tliat, what? We think the Government wouid have done better to have introd uced a thoroughgoing scheme of con. ecription as soon as it was realised that the Russian armies would be indefinitely nut, of action. "Piecemeal conscription is not of much use. But in any ease neither the Labour Party nor the trade unions will oppose' the compulsion of single laggards. There are A FEW NOISY INDIVIDUALS. mostly ot the muiGle-class. members of Mr. Clifford Allen's Won't Fight Gang, who may put np a feeble resistance, but the great bulk of the working classes realise that compul- fion is only one of the diaa.?-ft-abjp thmgs h*t we have to suffer as th? price of beat- ing Germany. Rather than fail in the task to which the nation has set its hand they wi.11 accept measures ten times more distasteful than the compulsion of a. small section of the nation which shows itself unworthy of the privileges of British citizenship."
