Mr. Archibald Hurd asks, " Is the Washington Naval Treaty doomed 2 " and gives a hesitating reply, while admit- ting that the three chief naval Powers have in fact done a good deal towards putting the Treaty in force. He reminds us that the Treaty applies only to capital ships and aircraft carriers. Mr. R. C. Long describes " Germany's War on British Subjects," in other words, the violent anti-foreign agitation that has been worked up in Germany. Intending visitors should take note. Mr. Sydney H. North writes informingly on " The Problem of Oil Supplies." Mr. Arthur Symons contributes some reminiscences of George Meredith, and Mr. Richard Aldington has a notable paper on " The Art of Poetry."
