Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Chriatmas operations in the various arenas of war have brought very little change in the standing of the oppon- ents. The attitude of Greece seems to indicate that she win not oppose invasion by the Teutonic allies pro- Tided she has assurance that Grecian territory will he evacuated on com- pletion of the Hun enterprise. Wbetlier the Greek people will sit by and allow this remains to be seen, but active aid from this nation on the side of the allies seems more remote than a lew days aso. Meanwhile invasion is being- delayed, the Bulgars evidently not being ansious to run into a hor- nets', nest in the .undertaking. ArtS'.ery actions represent the main activity on the western front, with the allies on tie offensive. A new exposition of the British troops on the west is indicated by the transfer of the Indian army corps from France to'another field of operations on the west, probably Flanders. The Hun submarine policy has evi- dently undergone no change as shown 07 the torpedoing without warning of the French steamer Ville de 'ia Clotat carrying passengers In the Mediter- ranean, Turkish assaults on the British fortress, Knt-Bl-Amara on the Meso- notamian1 front, have been repulsed heavy losses to the attackers, indicating' that the British in' this theatra war are in a stronger posi- tion than formerly.

A typical example of the comment appearing in eastern: 'Conservative papers is that .of the .Montreal Star, which says: "Sir "Wilfrid Laurier delivered .an at -the- Monument-.
