Main currents of opinion In England today, and the attitude of the
English people towards foreign influences and events were discussed
by Maj. C. Douglas Booth, of London, British officer, author and authority on British foreign policy, In
an address at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon at McVey hall to students,
faculty and guests of the University.
The Influences of imperial and
reactionary leaders, such as Winston Churchill, who believes in territorial expansion, and Lord
the Hearst of England,
were presented as opposing the liberal and labor parties which are
paciflstic and idealistic. "Between
these two extremes stand the great
mass of the British people," said
Major Booth. "This group was not
