Destroyers are o� all forms of craft the most effective, because they alone have the capacity for sudden bursts of very high' speed, and combine with this such hiandiness that they can be made to turn in a small circle. The value of this sprinting and' manoeuvring capacity lies, in this.. ,A submarine, to attack a convoy, must have Us periscope showing. It the convoying destroyer sees the periscope, it can dash for the spot at the-rate ot-a mile in two.minutes, and then manoeuvre around � it, dropping depth charges in an area in which one of these may be hoped to find the eneiny. Obviously, the more quickly it ca,q. get to the point where the submarine dived, the sijialler the area ia which the subnitirlue can have fled; the greater, therefore, the chances of the depth charges destroying it. Even It the submarine escapes annihilation, the fact that explosion has followed explosion-ht a deptor-of between 1(\0 and 160 feet is sure' to have shaken -it up; very severely, and to have caused some, even if not fatal, damage, and hence greatly toNiave disturbed the nerves and upset the morale ot those within her. The high probability of such an attack following within two; three.or four minutes of the periscope being seen imposes the severest of all istralns upon submarine officers and crews; The importance, then, of multiplying destroyers can simply not he^^exa^geratod. ' . Protecting a Convoy. While the destroyer is the ideal ship tor protecting a convoy, it does not mean that other units of naval force are tiseless. So far from' this being the case, there, is, haydly any form of ship that cannot, in some circumstances ha. turned to account for this purpose. I'-or.- example,- ten or twelve knot trawlers, or eighteen and twenty knot sloops, if well arbed andT WBll conned, may be just as useful as  destroyer in protecting ships U the submarine is attacking them by long-range tire, in the weather conditions in which they make gogd gun plat-forins, such vessels so armed are; Indeed, a complete protection. But, lacking speed, they cannot counter attack If the' submarine gets Into position to use a torpedo. Their'capacity to fight effectively dependa. lipon the kind!ot guns they are arnfiii with arid the training and skill ot (heir crewB. I Such; Vessels draw too l(ttle water to be favorable targets fot^-the submarine's torpedo, and so,,;, while they ,themselves have not much power to attick' a submerged subrtuirtne; the tbrpedo-using submarine has, corres-' pondinglV, no under-wator means of offense against them. ' And Just as sloops and trawlers can proteot convoys, so a well-armed, well-oonned merchant ship can convoy unarmed Hhips, and to the extent to which Its wc^toU ,1^ TigilAut and its Kunuer)' good can afford a degree of ae-rfurlt^. . ,, as we learn reoMtly from tn� fate ot the llrst Qtrman cruisioK 4u'tf.'t|^bjj^V..i?|^^P||.|efi^ Bakers' Cocoa, 1 lb. tins, each ..............49c Reindeer Condensed Coffee with milk ...... 16c Crlsco, 1 lb. tins, each ..................... 35c "CrUco, 3 lb. tins, each................... $1.10 Tea, Donaico, regular COc.

It'ls precisely against such vessels-'working on the surface that our own � submarines are likely to be effective. In addition to destroyers, sloops, trawlers, anil submarines, aircraft are usetl for jn'otective purposes too, but their utility - lies more Iii^ ottensive tactics. To su'in up, the best ot defences- I use the term literall.v-Is convoy,j a fact which Is proved by the extraordinarily low percentage ot .ships lost since the "principle was adopted rather less tlian a year ago. The contrast between the convoy and ante-convoy conditions shows this conclii-sively., .Twelve months since the un-defwrltlng rate for Transatlantic bottoms was seven per cent. Those that took the risk apparently reckoning on only one ship In l^or;17 urvjying the voyage. Today the loss bas faUpn from one in 17 to about one lii-70. (t'ls satisfactory ~to know that in the' lip'it-ed State.s they are not only buliding destroyers with furious energy, ;~'bu't the undefeated Mr. Ford Is turiilng out special anti-submarine craft with something like the facility with which he produces motof cars. -� / .� But, when all is said and done^lHe ' convoy acts more as a d^errent to'^ub-niarines rather than as a direct agency for their destruction, and it is only maintained at un immence cost in,the wear and tear of slilps, and by'the employment of an immense number ot men. It consequently involves a huge, rate ot expense, all of which must be added to the total disadvantages which the enemy's submairlne campaign imposes upon us. It is. (.his which lends point tp the old saying that the best defence Is the offence, for, if wholesale methods"^6f "thd" destruction ot submarines can h* addicted, the evil, is stopped, so to speiiik, at its source. .�. -.j 1 will discuss the, main outlines ot the measures of offence on .a fuiuri? p'6-caslon. : ~. � ,; w Ford and Service Of the Ford Car, itself, surely little need be said. Everyone knows its supreme value. Its reputation as a n�o5t-car-for-lhe-money automobile has penetrated to farthest regions and to all points of the compass. This reputation has been, in no sense, a "lucky" happening. Excellent in design and long In value-to-tbe-dollar, as the Ford Car uhdebatnbly is, it could never have won its reputation had not the Company back of it recognized how essential Real Service to the buyers and owners of Ford Cars was bound to be. The man paying over hia good money for a motor car wants a car, not for part of the time, not for most ot the Unte, but for all ot the time. f. And the Fordowner can count on that! No matter where he may go, what dittlcultleB ha may encounter, he iwlll find Ford Service almost at his instant call-at any rate, so near and so ready that the response for help will-surprise and gratlfyhlm. Realize this-in every, dlty and in.every town ot any size In Canada is located a Ford pealer, ' "�,'- � It is the Ford Company's boast, as it has been their ambition, that, no^matter where a motorist may tour, ho can find a Ford Dealer with a fully equipped Service Station ready  to give him the assistance or advice ho wants. r Ford Service Is a Service that'ls not a mere slogan, not'a woll-soundiing phrase,, but ...
