A Lantern Lecture.

Under the auspices of the Madras Publicity Board Mr. Young Necker delivered an interesting lecture on the “War” in the Y.M.C.A. Hall last evening [October 8]. Mr. Justice Kumaraswamy Sastry presided. The lecturer traced the development of the German Empire down to the commencement of the present war and said that the real cause of the war was the German ambition for territorial expansion. He then described in detail the barbarous attacks of Germany on the small nations without respect for treaty rights and observed that the German offer of peace at the present time might have an ultimate object behind it and that the conditions of peace should be to create proper safeguards against the repetition of German aggression and to avoid the recurrence of this bloody world-wide war in future years. The lecture was profusely illustrated by means of lantern slides. The President in his closing remarks thanked the lecturer for his interesting discourse. With three cheers to the King Emperor the meeting terminated.
