Ghent lies about 80 Miles East of Calais. Coupled with word that Boulogne had fallen came a British air ministry announcement that at least 20 German planes were shot Down and 26 More damaged by far Flung British Aerial stabs yesterday at both enemy communications along the fighting front and in Germany itself.

The facts fighting was proceeding today All along the great line of invasion but there Are Only two main engagement with which we need concern ourselves and we shall save ourselves confusion if we stick to these. They Are 1. The Battle of Flanders. I which the allies Are trying to close the Gap which separates the forces in Belgium and extreme Northern France from their colleagues to the South. 2. The conflict for Mastery of the canal ports. Lets look at the Battle of Flanders first. What is happening is this St there is a Gap 25 Miles wide in the Allied defensive line in the general Region of Arras and a pause. It is through this Gap that the germans have been pouring mechanized units which have raced to the coast. The Battle of Flanders is essentially for two purposes. One is to close the Gap reunite the Allied line and thus save the great army of the North. / the other is to prevent the Ger mans from pouring reinforcement through that Gap to the coast and at the same time the allies Hope to Cut off those nazi mechanized units which already have through. If the nazis get the Channel ports and Are Able to consolidate their positions in Force the invasion of England hitlers great ambition will be at hand. We shall see the first great Battle of history Between warships and air planes in the English Channel. We shall get the showdown for which we have waited to Long to learn whether air planes can smash the British Navy. Signs multiply that this Blits Krieg is Hitler supreme Gamble. Shelly b. Caveness j.
