uninterrupted series o f military suc­
cesses. Furthermore aggressive oppo
. .lion to Uie Churchill leadership has
appeared within the Commons. It is
led by Hore-Belisha who was dis­
missed as war minister more than a
year ago fo r alleged inefficiency.
And while the opposition is small in
numbers it has some strong talking
points and if allowed to go unanswer­
ed might create a serious internal
problem at a time when the highest
attainable degree o f British unity is
Prime argument used against the
Churchill policy is that he takes too
many chances, or, to use a racing
term he bets on too many long shots.
The disastrous Crete a ffa ir is the
latest example o f this. In reply Mis
Churchill said that b- cannot and will
not figh t a cautious, defensive war.
He said that the enemy must be har­
ried at all times even though the cost
to the British army is heavy. And fin»
ly he said that the Crete adventure
ha.- justified itself by distracting Ger­
man attention and German military
energies from other areas.
On the other hand British sea con­
trol despite heavy losses remains un­
questioned. The Italian navy with
many o f its vessels sunk is largely
bottled up in port and seems to have
little taste fo r battle. The German
navy has often shown courage but,
at least so fa r as surface vessels are
concerned it is considerably smaller
now by comparison with the British
fleet than when the war began. And
English reports say German submar­
ine losses have lately been very
Equally important Britian seems to
have achieved a minor miracle in
iirming and fortifyin g her island
after the terrible disaster in Flan­
ders which ended with extraordinary
evacuation at Dunkirk.
The bulk
o f British equipment was le ft on the
French beaches. American reporters
tell o f British regiments marching
thru the streets o f London without
even rifles. Today Britian is literal­
ly and armed camp with the finest
o f defensive equipment, including
according to some new devices which
will give the Germans an unpleas­
ant surprise if they try invasion.
Most important o f all perhaps,
Britian has apparently gained con­
trol o f the air at home. Reliable re­
ports say the R A F has done wonders
in destroying attacking planes o f the
Lu ftw a ffe. She is receiving consid­
erable numbers o f long range multi­
engined bombers from this country
■which aie enabling her to increase
her raids over German and German-
| dominated areas.
| W orst phase from the British vieM
point remains the shipping problem.
It was recently necessaiy to impose
new and very severe food restrictions
in England,,, today British diet is
definitely inferior to German’s. War
materials get first place in the ships
and only a subsistence minimum of
other materials are brot in. It re­
mains to be seen w'hat a ffect thi.-
may have on British morale.
Mr. Churchill also said recently
that if England is no worse o f f in
six months than she is now she will
have reason fo r self-congratulation.
In other words he apparently feels
that the time o f great crisis is at
hand. The period o f fine weather is
here and the unpredictable Hitler
may have some world-shaking plan:
in mind fo r the summer months.

This is a good time to sum up Bri»
tains position after a year and a half
o f war inasmuch as our government
obviously considers the survival o f
England necessary to the safety and
defense o f this hemisphere. To. be­
gin with it is clear that the Germans
have been immensely superior on
land, England is nowhere the N azi’s
equal in equipment and it looks as
if the British high command lacks
those qualities o f thoroness, imagi­
nation and cold daring which char­
acterize H itler’s general staff. Every
battle fought on land has ended in
victory fo r Germany and routs for
the British. Even the British succes­
ses against Mussolini’s spiritless
troops in A frica were afterwards
competely offset when the German
legions moved in.

Friendliest Border in the World
years ago in dedicating one
of the several international
bridges between the United States
and Canada, President Roosevelt,
with prophetic insight referred to
the international boundary as “ the
’one which JOINS our two coun­
tries.” Never was that so true
as t%day when in all things except
the political, Canada and the United
States are as one.
One hundred and twenty years
ago the Rush-Bagot Treaty was
signed between Canada and the
United States. It ended forever the
possibility of strife between the two
nations which since have gone for­
ward as neighbors in an under­
standing and friendship that never
vas more knowing or stronger than
it is today. When the centennial of
the signing of that treaty was ob­
served. the school children of Brit­
ish Columbia and Washington
