CMliKCHILL'S Hastings in "Picture Post) yrom the time he became prime minister it was manifest that JVEr. Churchill's own safety was a major factor in Britain's defence. So look- ing- after him was regarded as a military operation, and it was call- ed "Operation ele- phant being the prime minister. One of the features of "Opera- tion Elephant" was a mobile anti- aircraft battery which used to ac- company the prime minister where- ever" he went. Churchili took im- mense pride in this anti-aircraft battery. He used to call it. to the indignation of the officers, his per- sonal flak, snc when he went away for the weekend to the country he always insisted, on having one of the guns mounted outside the front. aoor so that he could display it proudly to his guests. As a cersonal defence the anti- aircraft "battery was a failure. The original arrangement was that if hostile aircraft came 30 miles of the prime minister the guns would be manned and Mr. Churchili and his staff were to go to the air raid shelter. But it did not work out that way.

If Mr. Ferguson had an intention of entering the field 'for leader- ship) the clash which he had with Rt. Hon. Arthur Meighen at the convention the night before nomi- nations would have ended his chances. It will be recalled that Jlr. Meighen asked at the conven- tion an opportunity of explaining his famous Hamilton speech, in which he had urged that in future before the country entered war I parliament should be called and that the decision cf the govern- ment should be submitted to the judgment of the people at a gen: ersi ejection before troops shouia leave our shores. This speech had been the cause of much controversy in the partv and in certain quar- ters had been bitterly opposed. Mr. Fergusc-n was one of the most, caus- tic critics. _ Mr. Meishen was granted leave ss a former leader cJ the party to present his views. It was a great effort. Sir.

As soon as Mr. Meighen sat down j Mr. Fergusc-n jumped to his feet. He" was not even introduced and hundreds of the delegates, particu- larly from, the west and the mari- did not recognize the man who was challenging Mr. Meighen. When he referred to a personal. conversation with Mr. Meighen j there were actually boos. Mr. Fer- j gusoa got over his ideas, but he frankly did very badly as he ac-! fcnowledged himself to me that j night. He added: "A man should i never speak when he is angry and j I will confess I was angry." JOQB.
