Air-Raid Apathy

The latest air-raid tests have given the usual result : with ordinary luck a great proportion of the raiding aeroplanes will get through the defences. Nobody, unless professionally engaged in the business, says much about it or does much about it. Here and there some perfunctory air-raid precautions arc announced or even practised, but very few read the pamphlets on the subject. Apparently few even think about it.

This is not only because the thought of air-raids is so terrible that people simply cannot safely allow their imaginations to get busy with it. People will not even bestir themselves to take quite practical action about it. There seems to be a kind of subconscious resistance to adjusting the pattern of life to these new demands. Quite rightly, people feel that it is better to live decently while it is possible.
