In todays' Daily Telegraph a German who has returned to his country from Britain writes about his experiences in “the most moderate and truthful account of conditions in England to-day that has appeared in the German Press;” he having almost nothing but good to say about this country. Page 10 gives extracts from the two articles he penned. It is quite impressive that the Germans allowed this to be printed.  Also in today’s paper - In response to an appeal by the Medical War Service Emergency Committee, an article on page 6 stresses the duty of patients of those who go off to war service to stay loyal to their doctors - Greece responds to Bulgaria’s mobilisation by ordering one of her own – page 9 - It is confirmed that “treating” in London is to be banned – page 9 - Hints to the public as to lighting conditions in London should be are given on page 9. A blackout is not planned - The women’s page reports the news that Germans have been deprived of their whipped cream (page 12)
