BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER

time. A film which was suppressed but which I saw at a private showing, revealed the miserable insufficiency of the police protection. One was forced to admit that in France, while the people remained hardworking, sane and courageous, the machine of government had ceased to function.

What was the source of the eviL It lay in the violence of political passions adroitly inflamed by foreign propaganda. Since the Revolution France had been a disunited country. `This bloody ditch will never be filled in,' Chateaubriand had said of the Terror. That was still true. I felt it very strongly, as I have said, in Perigord where the aristocracy remained loyal to the Old Regime while the peasants voted for the Left. But up to 1918 patriotism had held together Frenchmen who were divided on all other points.

These in their turn had terrified the Radicals who rushed into the arms of the Socialists. On July Fourteenth you no longer saw a single parade of patriots proceeding toward the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, but two parades, one of the Left, the other of the Right, so hostile to each other that only the presence of the police kept them from coming to blows.
All this would have been less serious had it not been that at this very time Germany was beginning its formidable rearmament. For us to grow disunited as she became unified was folly.

I invoked the spirit of Lyautey who had united men of all persuasions and had made them work together for the glory of France. This message was well received by the young men to whom I talked, and I am convinced that if more speakers had preached union throughout the country they would have been listened to, but a campaign of this sort when it is not endorsed by any party or supported by the press reaches only very small groups.
Conscious of my weakness and my isolation I remembered sadly that Disraeli at the beginning of his political career had tried to remain independent and had been forced to recognize, after two or three resounding defeats, that action demands intellectual sacrifices, simplifications of thought and a participation in the life of a party.
