London june 3.�? it a fear of a knockout blow from the air delivered without warning by swarms of Swift enemy bombers. Is rapidly revising the experts ideas of How to protect Britain from attack. Advocates of a Strong counteroffensive against the War production plants and other military objectives belonging to an enemy thus Are gaining in numbers. Many believed that in a Gen eral european War a major objective of any Power attacking Britain would be to cripple the country by intensive bombing raids. The seat of government in Loudon ports railway centers naval bases military centers and arms plants would be the main targets of such an attempt to immobilize the nation s life. Many persons believe no Continental nation has economic resources sufficient for a Long War and that any aggressor would rely on Swift attack. Since Britain was attacked in the world War developments it aviation have changed both theory and practice of Aerial warfare. Then because of limited flying Range most German bombers were forced to enter Britain Over the Southeast countries of Essex and Kent which were Only 80 Miles from German airbases in Belgium. By concentrating anti aircraft guns around London and in Essex Aud Kent Britain was Able to protect the whole Western and Northern areas of the Island. Now a minimum 1,600-mile flying Range is demanded by bombers. Many britons insist the Only Way to Stop raids would be counter raids on the nations Supply ing the raiding planes. As Jong As Continental plants could keep on turning out replacements for destroyed machine it would be futile merely to shoot Down the raiders they argue. Many doubt that the anti aircraft guns planted around Lon Dong along the coast would be effective in repelling a mass attack. The protective value of girdling Loudon with Small ail chord balloons a major feature of the City a defense system also is questioned. Some experts have urged immediate military staff talks among the air Force chiefs of nations which have been brought French bases and then return. Into the British French front through pledges of Protection Poland Rumania. Greece and Turkey. Standardization of air plane equipment and accumulation of War stores in each nation Are suggested As one of the principal methods of cooperation. One plan for cooperation has been worked out by experts on the Assumption that Germany would be the enemy. The plan Calls for British and French planes to attack German warplane factories mostly in Eastern Germany and then Fly to polish bases to Load up Vith fuel and bombs before returning across Germany to their French bases.
