t RUMOURS. -The public would be well-advised during the critical period which faces us to give no credence, to alarmist rumours which some people seem to. spread about without the least compunction. An instance occurred on Saturday morning, when the rumour flew about that Amiens had fallen. It only needed a little consideration to feel assured of the falsity of the rumour. First, there was General Foch's assurance of the safety of this important railway centre, then the morning's official news did not give any indica- tion of the likelihood of such a sudden and serious happening, and, further than that, it was practically impossible that authentic news of such an event could have travelled so quickly. There are, unfortunately, people who are too ready to credit unauthenticated rumours, though the experience of the war should have taught, them to discount any statement which is not officially communicated. It would be foolish to minimise the gravity of the situation and to ignore facts, but there is no need to go to the other extreme and b lieve the most impossible stories. False news is frequently circulated by. enemy agents, and the public should take care to neither consciously or unconsciously play the enemy's gjlme by accepting them and giving them further publicity. Under the Defence, of the Realm Act it is a serious offence to spread false news, even though it be done innocently" and without motive. Everyone should there- fore exercise the utmost care and especially when hearing of rumours which are obviously unfounded should do all they can to discredit their acceptance. ———^ —
