Practical Job On British

That seems to be a business
like and practical Job the Ameri-can-Britlsn-Canadlan

of giving emergency aid in John
Bull's economic crisis.
It's more than Just an economic
remedy. It gives a real lift to the
morale of a very hard-pressed
England and to the numerous
other countries v hose welfares
are interlocked with hers.
The agreements were worked
out with due regard to the dignity
of Britain, and to the bonds of
friendship. The conferees tackled
the problem in the same spirit of
u lily and cooperation shown dur
ing the dark days of the World
Undoubtedly the aid would have
been arranged had no other na
tion than Britain been concerned.
But quite apart from the proposi
tion of helping a staunch war
time ally it was very clear
that an international catastrophe
whuld be precipitated if she were
allowed to collapse. As Canadian
finance Minister Douglas Abbott
"We go up or down together."
The task of the conferees in
this initial meeting related to
Britain's shortage of dollars. She
is earning far less dollars than
