2nd December 1915



In todays Daily Telegraph: - One place where the “no treating” order is not applied is the House of Commons, and despite 180 members asking the Kitchen Committee to put it into force there, it decides the whole house should make the decision, thereby passing the buck – page 8
- A Dupont plant in the USA explodes with 30 deaths, and the articles are quick to put the blame on German-Americans, if not the Germans themselves – page 9. The Germans are also fingered as behind a plot to blow up important points of Italian railways – page 10
- The Bulgarians claim the Anglo-French troops in Serbia have got nowhere, and in fact have been pushed back – page 9. A subsequent article even goes so far to have them refer to the “Anglo-French comedy at Salonika.” Interestingly nowhere is there anything refuting this
- The Government makes it clear to organised labour that national economy is needed, and thus there should not be demands for higher wages – pages 9 and 10 - The first cinema pictures of the war are ready for screening, reports Philip Gibbs on page 11 - Violent scenes in the Roumanian parliament after the opposition cry “Down with Hungary! Down with the Germans!” – page 11 - General Sir Ian Hamilton praises the Zion Mule Corps – page 11 - An ex-officer is in court in page 13 for not only wearing a uniform without authority but bigamy .
