Due ui the outstanding military vents of the past week has been 'the nppoiutment of General Koch of the .French army as the supreme commander-in-chief of all the allied ar-tties on the west front. � The fact that there are French. British, Belgians. Americans and Portu- ; gese fighting on the west front ' against the supreme effort of the : Germans to break through has decided � the military experts of the allies to place the supreme command la the bands of one man in order that tho proper co-ordination and control of reserve:* might be effected to the best '� advantage. The result ot this etep should be a 1 welding process, knd should result in the best possible une being made ot ' the effectives of the allies available ! to item tbe German tide. General ' focli will, of course, have a c.ounc.l of the heads of the various armies vrtth whom he will consult, but the plonolng of the campaign will be in hi* baad* and tbe decisions will" be bU - Tho choice of General -Poch as su-pffemo' leader would appear to .be a Wioo one. Not only doe* be know the theory of war but he U a master-band aid says we should not allow'our optimism to lead us into a state of slothfuluess and waste Remember that the I'nitel States is preparing for six years more of war. Let this be a warning to us to tighten our belts and commence ritrht now to get a proper understanding, of the terrible task ahead of us. Canada's greatest task is production We can do much in the fighting lin�-. more man we have already done, but our greatest opportuni'v Is lr. feeding the fighting men and those who are backing them up at the front with the munitions of war. A realisation on ihr> part of each one of us that our stern duty is to put aside every consideration but the winning of the war is what Canada most needs. Don't let optimistic UendUlnej cause you to slacken your efforts. Pessimism is bad. but undue optimism is worse. There Is a long hard struggle yet ahead.
