I) A ABLE HYPOCRISY. I STRAIGHT WORDS BY STRIKE LEADER. I Mr. Stanley Burgess, chairman of the Sheffield Strike Committee, and one of the two local men arrested by the Government for the part they took in the engineers' strike last year, has iiiad,- a notable speech on the. shirkers. Speaking at a in<w-t'n^ of the Trades and Labour Counf-il against a resolu- tion protesting against the proposed comb-out, he said "It is damnable hypocrisy for organ- ised woikers to say that no "more men should go into the Army, and yet to bo willing to continue making muni- tions. If you are willing to make munitions you should be willing to fire them. That would be playing the game. Are you prepared to send boys of eighteen, men with big families, clerks, 0 unorganised farm labourers, and others in the South of England to do the fighting, and yet to say that men shall not go from the protected trades? It is too late now to talk of stopping the war by holding up sup- plies. If you had intended that, you should have done it three and a half years ago, instead of agreeing to the war and crying out 'low." t, He added that her was prepared to go into kliaki to prevent Germany be- coming dominant in (.¡e world.
