Rather than cause widespread dis-
sension and chaos as intended, the
frequent and ruthlessly haphazard
poundings by the German Luftwaffe
have served to strengthen the British
morale to such an extent that most
of the people have developed the
capacity to sleep through an air raid,
much as we would sleep through a
thunderstorm, many not even taking
the trouble to seek cover in an air
raid shelter, Geoffrey Seed, Common-
wealth Fund Fellow from New Castle-
on-Tyme declared when asked how
the English people were standing up
under the continuous wave of bom-
bardments and how life in wartime
England differed from that of more
peaceful times.
But for a few adjustments here
and there, Mr. Seed asserted, life
goes on in England much the same,
and the attitude of the people is still
one of complete confidence. Mr.
Seed attributes most of this feeling
of self-assuredness to the "indomit-
able personality" of Winston Church-
ill, the like of whom, he doubts, has
ever been seen before in the history
of England.
No Food Shortage
There is no acute food shortage on
the islands, Mr. Seed indicated, al-
though, he added, meat is being ra-
tioned, fruits are suspended, cream is
prohibited, and there is less butter
and sugar. Otherwise the people are
getting all the necessities of life, he
said, since there has been an inten-
sive development of England's agri-
culture and much of the marginal
land is under cultivation. The rest
of England's food supply, he showed,
is largely imported from the United
States, the dominions, and South
Higher education in England is
progressing as usual with more or less
normal enrollments, Mr. Seed noted,
as compared to the last war, when
students were sapped from the large
universities such as Oxford and Cam-
bridge, although, he added, many of
the students now enrolled have some
connection with the armed forces.
Others Have Suffered
However, elementary and second-
ary education have suffered from the
war,, he explained, because of fre-
quent evacuations and movements of
the population about the country.
Few children, he pointed out, re-
main in the large cities.
British industry, Mr. Seed averred,
seems to have been little affected by
bombings. This is borne out, he
showed, by the export figures of 1940,
which correspond approximately to
those of 1939. Aid from America
and increased British industrial capa-
city, he said, will make the bombing
toll less significant.
No Street Lighting
In the larger cities and vulnerable
spots there is no street lighting, he
pointed out, and, he explained, if a
person wants to go anywhere at night
he must know exactly where he is go-
ing or run the risk of getting lost.

Some of the Midland towns, he said,
have a dimmed lighting system.
Before the Battle of Britain really
got under way, Mr. Seed declared,
there was much consternation on the
part of health officials that contagion
would result from repeated bombings
and milling of people into small quar-
ters, but, he asserted, the health of
the population is quite normal, which
is largely due, he explained, to strict
preventative measures. In guarding
against potential epidemics, he added,
large supplies of a new influenza ser-
um have been imported.
Housing Problem Not Acute
The housing problem for dispos-
sessed evacuees has not yet reached
serious proportions, Mr. Seed be-
lieves, for the entire population is
united in cooperating to make hous-
ing arrangements for those who are
left homeless. Many, he showed, live
with relatives, others find new quar-
ters, and some move in with people
who have open accommodations. The
housing problem is further alleviated,
he indicated, by the government's re-
quiring every home owner to take out
house insurance. Although air raid
shelters have proven their worth in
curtailing the number of casualties,
Mr. Seed said, they afford no protec-
tions against a direct hit. This is
probably why so many people prefer
to stay where they are, he ventured,
and take the chances.
The most noticeable aspect of life
in wartime England, Mr. Seed ob-
served, is the preponderance of peo-
ple in uniform. Aside from the great
number of British regulars, he said,
there are many imperial troops in
England from Australia, New Zea-
land, Canada and other dominions.
There are also many, he added, wear-
ing the uniforms of the refugee forces
of Czechoslovakia, Poland and France.
Dr. Hu Shih Views
Ideology Conflict
Over World Today
(Continued from Page 1)
abandoned the idea of radical revolu-
tion and are contented with their
slower process of reform. "Vaguely
and unconsciously," he said, "but un-
mistakably, the basic philosophy of
modern democratic political proced-
ure is that progress is not made by
violent and destructive upheavals,
but by the steady accumulation of
specific improvements and reforms."
The totalitarian system of uni-
formity, Dr. Hu continued, leads to
suppression of individual initiative,
intolerance, oppression and slavery,
plus intellectual dishonesty and mor-
al hypocracy, while the non-conform-
ity of the democracies leads to the
flowering of disinterested and crea-
tive scholarship and thought and to a
spirit of tolerance, the love of free-
dom and truth.
