Notes, topics or text 

A newsclip column from the Morning Post, 9 March 1916, p. 6, titled "University Pacifism. A Conspiracy of Cranks." It concerns the Cambridge branch of the Union of Democratic Control (U.D.C.). Macleod, who published anonymously, is sufficiently identified in G.H. Hardy, Bertrand Russell and Trinity, p. 17.

"It is true that two of the most dangerous protagonists are no longer in residence. Mr. G. Lowes Dickinson is in America on some mysterious mission; the Hon. Bertrand Russell is supposed to be in London working on the National Council against Conscription. A recently-issued leaflet, which put the numbers of Cambridge adherents at 170 (of whom about 130 were in residence), bears the following signatures: C.F. Angus, J. Baker, E. Cunningham, G. Lowes Dickinson, G.H. Hardy, B.A. Howard, L.E. Matthaei, E. Power, Bertrand Russell, and R.R. Sedgwick."

Baker, Matthei and Power were women (the letter says 3 signatories were women).

The leaflet has not been found.
