NATIONAL SERVICE ADVOCATED BY LORD DENMAN London. Lord Denman, late Governor-General of Australia, in a letter to the “Times,” advocates national service. The first step, he states, is to register all the men in the country, classified according to age, trade, and occupation. He bases his arguments on Australian experience, and pays a tribute specially to the work of the Hon. A. Fisher, Senator Pearce, and Mr W.M. Hughes in giving effect to universal training.
