    EVEN in the stress and strain of the war itself, the widespread concern as to the steps to be taken to ensure that our efforts are not once again in vain is unmistakable.

The extent to which this is evident is one of the most significant differences in the present temper of the nation in contrast with its entry into war in 1914.
