"The. unbrokon lino from Givcnohy to Arrait," ho said, "of which Viniy is llic dominatins centre, rornis tlie i)ivol for the onliri) line from Yprcs to the Sonime.

"It has been rumored that at least one Canadian division has been mov ed farther north to !ielp slem the (jor-man drive. TIiIh seems unlikely. Nothing there is so imiiortaii.t as the Lena pivot. French forces liavo been thrown in and the Germim advance lias been brought to a halt Our ])rc-dominatlng po.sitlon at Vimy is of the utmost value in connection with any ])onding counter offensive, whether this be in Flanders or south of the Somme. At the present moment Canadians may well be proud of the position they hold, and also of the fine work Canadian cavalry and otlier arms accomplished in helping .stem the first flood In Piceardy."
