Buehanin Torrance Director Business Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Central Powers believe RICKED UP IN SSlNGi FOR THE BUSY MAN they have reason to tie uneasy over the at- titude of Rumania, which country may at auy moment turn from r. neu- tral attitude to one actively in sup- port ot the Allies. In this case the Germans would expect attack from four sides in the the and east from Russians and Ru- manians, on the south from the Serbs, -French and British, and on the west from the Italians. Rumania, it Is intimated, will be prepared to Join the Allies if Allied troops are concentrated in the 'Balkans. Greece has steadfastly re. fused to allow the Allies unrestricted use of Saloniki as a, base, and de- clines to remove her array from Mace- donia. In Serbia, the Bulgarians have tak- the town of Prlzrend, and captured many Serbian prisoners and supplies. Russians are increasing in strength In the vicinity of Riga, but very little fighting is recorded. Rumors of Austria's efforts to se- curVpeace with all the Allies are still prevalent The Kaiser, it is said, is attempting to put a stop to these ef- forts, hoping to he able to deal sep- arately with the Allies, in order to eliminate all but Britain, whom he then hopes to crush. Kediuoad, the Irish leader, on hie re- turn from a visit to the trout, that "Every day, every hour, Germany Is getting weaker. For every shell she throws at we throw five." So. a few months' ot systematic organiza- tion has placed Britain and the Allies on the western front In a superior position over the enemy. Mr. Hed-j mond's statement is borne, out 'by Lord Murray .of Elibank, ouc of Lloyd George's lieutenants. Evidently he spoke with authority when ho.said: "We are working day and night to solve the problem of now armies nnfl abounding munitions, and our people who have given millions to the ilght- army, will see that their sous ami brothers lack nothing tlmt can make victory sure. We realize that there can be no limit to our effort short of, j ibis, nutl we pledge the whole of ourj resources to the common cause.

IN GOVERNMENT'S ACTION SEIZING WHEAT The situation which has been creat- ed by the action of the Dominion gov- ernment in commandeering bushels of irheat at the terminals and eastward, has not been wholly Clafine'oY and there -is -still a-shadow of doubt as to the government's real intentions. _ The action was unprecedented the history of the country, hut these times which demand such action in.certain situations.1 If the govern- ment's object was to" .release this grain from the clutches of the specu- lators, and place It in a position avail- able for immediate shipment, then the action is The government has intimated that the necessary bottoms are available for shipment of this grain to England, and the situation may ultimately develop to ,the benefit of the western farmer, relief of the pressure at iSe to that extent. More than 700 cars of grain were receded at Port Arthur elevators on Ml., a record for one day at por George Frigeault was instantly kill- are repugnant to strict disciplinar- ians, but the American people may fce confident that it strong and enJm-j rccon, fot OQC day ing, and that it will develop constant- port, ly increasing energy under the stress oi war." It must ba remembered in this con- nection that Britain's sphere of con- flict is widening. Demand for muni- tions is greater than it was a few months ago. We have now an expe- ditionary force in the Balkans, and our obligations there are heavy. John Redmond and Lord Murray expressed their view on the munition problem, after, and not before, the Balkan field of- warfare developed.

Public school has col- lected: a; substantial sum of money for the Patriotic Fund, the children show- ing a remarkable spirit of patriotism and self-denial. Patriotic collection boxes are placed at the door of each department, and many a nickel which otherwise would go for caadv or the "movieB" is given toward the over- throw of tyranny. Every morning the ariw and salute 'the and slut the National Anthem. The teach- uy that the children nevor tire farvehtly joining In this song, and ;especially'the laat verse.

It IB cheering, yes, inspiring, to read of the patriotism of these young Canadians, sons and daughters of American-born parents These patriotic exercises develop a strong love of country, and make them good citizens. We wonder if schools in communities where the population IE more largely British, are as patriotic as Raymond. Thft exercises followed in the Ray- mond school should be in. vogue In every school in the Dominion. It is la" where diir future citizens are being developed. We want them to grownup respectful of the flag and admiren of the great principles and institutions which tne flag represents. Raymond teachers are to be com- the course they are fol- lowing: in creating a patriotic senli- ment among the pupils itee to H Quarter of an hour to sink. The reason why a submarine can- not dive.quickly, like a fish, Is that the water must be let into her i tanks to make her heavy enough to sink, must be let 'in comparatively slowly, if it-were let in with a rush the chances are the vessel would not go down on an even keel, but would heel over, and be in great danger of disaster. It' water, too, were let in too quickly, there is a danger of let- ting in too much, and in that case the submarine would sinfe like a stone to the. bottom of the sea. The water that is let in the ballast tanks is just, sufficient to "balance" the vessel in the sea without rising or sinking. Dr. George Elliott, of Grenfell, Sask., is dead.
