Inlia not only has vast mian – power, linbut the ha, th,- will to u-e it. The Imperial author;tie, have therefore done well to a-k India to prepare her forces to meet the


Gterman menace sweeping Eastiards. The call sent fromn thi- country at the beginning of this ear in the n: me of the King-Emper.,r and the P’rime Mlll-‘er went -tra;iht to the hearts of Inian’-. and they are dI tog everi-thlng in their piw(r to to optrte wtl h the a;t horitie, in their effort to deve.l p Indtan mnn pa,-er Committees and sulb- t, mnitttee- have been established in varius parts of India to bring the sWar situation home to Indians by tmean, of cinen:atuograph how’s, picture papers, iorlitnary newspaper,, pamphlets, and lectures. nfhtlential Indian. of all raes aind creeds are also doingt a great deal of indiitidual work to stimulate recrulting. In constituting the-e committees to work h nd m hand with the Central Man-Power and Plubhlittv EIord-. widening the area of recruit- ment. end removing the bar that excluded Indians from the commi,.ioned rank, the authorities have shown a remarkable appreciation of the situation atnd a determination to rise to the occasion. The new policies that have been inaugurated, if followed to their logical sequence, will appeal to the Indian imagination and stimulate Indian pride in a manner that will ensure the succes of any recruiting programme, no matter how great it may be.
