Ottawa, April 6-"There are othpr things Canada con do besides assisting In strengthening our man power," said the Most Rev. Cosmo Gordon Lang, Archbishop of York, in his iM-dress at the Canadian Club luncheon today. "There is the matter of food," continuing he said, the British people were striving cheerfully, bfit under n groat strain and whatever Canada could do to aid them would do an much as anything else to strengthen the spirit of the British people in the final struggle. "How can we be other than determined to see this matter through," he asked. The Spirit �f The Hun "This spirit for which we are fighting and for which the great noble, invincible France is fighting; the ideal that the nations of the world, great and small shall live in the it-own way in freedom and peace. There is also another spirit, so malign and favored by that nation whOBe rest!T* ambition admits of no responsibility to a free people or government; a nation which makes commerce a conspiracy, diplomacy a decit and military power a perpetual menace to Uie free peoples of the world. "Whon great nations like Canada-and England are united to face this attitude, every man must feel that he has come to the great ordeal and he must be true. Spiritual Issue "There is a great spiritual issue at stake. We must decide now which spirit is to control in future. And in the struggle for this decision, no nation has a greater stake than Canada," Future of Canada The Archbishop of York then referred to the future of Canada, saying that if in the great struggle, should pass, she could look with pride to her past, but Canada was a young nation, with everything bound up In her future. This war, he thought, would bring not only a closer bond between Canada and Britain, but also between the provinces of Canada, and out of the struggle would come more unity. "Not only the unity of the Dominion to the motherland," he said, "but more and more of one commonwealth of free peoples, living united under one crown." Enthusiasm of U. S. The Archbishop referred to the anniversary of the United States' entry into the war and expressed the thought that thes surprise was not that the United States had taken so long to get the war spirit under way, but that in such a short time, the enthusiasm of the people had reached such a height. "The people of the United States and Canada," he said, "are now united by a common bond and resolved to see that the whole world ideals; of civ-: filiation and freedom are upheld." : Th* recent big battle on the west-! era front, said the speaker had done more tp make Americans realize what: the war meant to then than anything! else. I Britain Grateful I Canada's share in the war was deep-j ly realized In Britain, said the Arch- j bishop, and the glorious victory of the Canadians at Viniy Ridge, he believ-1 ed, had been the turning point of the enemy offensive in the west. He paid I a-.tribute to,the immediacy of Canada's i response to the call for men and also! to the financial call and in closing said the work of the women of Can-! ada had been one of the finest things the war had yet produced.
