Iiir the face of .'this Mr. Crothers. .seems to be doing his best to stir up further trouble. He can't be doing any good, and is possibly doing a great deal of harm. Surely there is work in Ottawa for Hon. Mr. Crothers to do without coming west to antagonize the- -svorkers. it that is all he can find to do we might abolish the office.

Considering the subject abstractly. Foch felt this would be a weakness (an opinion shared by some German writers) for it would mean leaving garrisons behind at Brussels and Antwerp, besides exposing the invaders to flank atta.cks. But it happened otherwise-notwithstanding the evidence of long platforms in Lorraine evidently designed for detraining troops." Foch knows the drawbacks of the German plan of offensive even when supported by its gas ot double power and every sort of diabolical weapon. "The troops become mortally fatigued, hence the comparative pause in the midst of operation, and they are weighted with the carrying ot six days' supplies." Haste is necessary to Ludendorft's plan. The plan of Foch requires care; but in his good time, he will move forward with all his panoply of science and resource, and Germany v,-ill not be able to resist his might." ' When Foch -was chosen as General-, isslmo ot the allied armies, Lloyd George is reported to have asked him: "Supposing you were playing cards with Ludendorff, which hand, ^vould you prefer?" "My own," was the quick reply. A little later when a friend was going to London, Foch said to him: "If you see your Prime Minister you might tell him I still prefer my own cards." And It looks now as if the great French strategist held most ot the trump cards in the monstrous and terrible monumental game going on yonder in France and Belgium boys at the front.
