DIGGING GRAVE OF THE HUN FAITH. Mr Lloyd George on Allies' Growing Power to Strike. "BUT-IF WE LOST." Is Britain really putting her whole weight into the war? The question has just been put by Mr Ivor Nicholson to Mr Lloyd George during an interview at Walton Heath. Mr Lloyd George replied :— "Britain is preparing to put her whole weight into the war, and Ger- many will feel it in a very short time. "It is an effort such as Britain has never made before—a truly prodigious effort. "Before the war she had the greatest fleet in the world, but now she has one of the greatest armies, and in a very short. time it will be about the best equipped army in the world." Mr Lloyd George spoke of this a.chievement with evident pride. "But that is not all," he added. "A new Britain is now being developed-a new industrial Britain. COUNTRY WILL BE RICHER. i "Under the great pressure of the i war we are increasing and improving and quickening our industrial re- sources to an extent which would have been impossible but for the demands of this conflict. "Let me give you just one example" said the Minister of Munitions. "In the first place, we have introduced scores of millions of pounds' worth of automatic machinery, which will have an enormous effect upon our industries J j when the war is over.. "This country, so far from being im- povetislied, will be richer in every- ■ thing that constitutes real and true wealth. "We shall be a better organised, better equipped, better trained, and, what is more important perhaps, a better disciplined nation. In fact, we shall indeed be a nation and not a congeries of conflicting interests." Mr Nicholson says he reminded Mr J Lloyd George of Mazzini's saying that war is the greatest of crimes when it id not waged for the sake of a great truth to enthrone or a great lie to ) entomb. "Yes," replied Mr Lloyd George, "the Allies are engaged in a mighty effort to dig the grave of that wicked lie that 'might, is right.' and, mark you, we shall not cease to strive to our uttermost until we have dug the grave deep and wide, and can a ban- don our united toil in the firm con- viction that we have insured beyond all possible doubt against its resurrection-" "IF WE WERE DEFEATED?" Asked what would happen if we were defeated, the Minister of Munitions. retorted :— "If the military class in Germany should win their triumph will be per- manent. 'Make no mistake, we should witness the triumph of an ideal; a pernicious ideal, of course, but a potent one. "It is just the old idea of organ- ised force which has been the basis of all military empires. "The Germany of quiet, pacific de- velopment, the improvement in the condition of her people, the Germany that was increasing her democratic vote by millions at each successive election, would vanish from the sight of this generation, and in its place what should be seen?" Mr Lloyd George paused and then j added: "We should see a Germany of triumphant warriors, seeking whom they could devour, looking out for fresh spheres—or shall I say-fresh hemi- spheres to conquer. "If Germany were to win this war, i Europe would be helpless. Let us never forget that indisputable fact. "Russia and France would not be permitted to build up great armies to defend their frontiers; and, of course, the command of the sea would be taken from Great Britain. ———— ————
