June Prime Minister Mackenzie Kins warned today that if the move- ment of food to Europe were dislocated "by strikes in this country or any country, then Jt will give rise to conditions which will react on this part of the world."

AH, POSSIBLE ASSISTANCE "I fed that too great an effort cannot be pus forth by this con- tinent in giving all possible assist- ance in food and clothing if famine is to be avoided and something ap- proaching revolution he said. The prime minister expressed the belief that the problem of helping Europe could only be met "hi a basic way" bv increasing produc- tion. "Anything: limiting production." Mr. King said, "aostpones the dav of prosperity and the day to which we are all looking forward." Transportation was an "accom- paniment" of production, and if food could not be transported this summer there would be great suf- fering in Eurone.

We are all in the same boat." More than 2.000 of the Queen Mary's passengers were brides and children of Canadian servicemen. WIVES, CHILDREN" HALIFAX. June War brides and their children made up more than 2.000 of Premier King's felloe-travellers aboard the Queen itary and the premier reported on the liners arrival here today it was a "thrilling experience'1 watching how thg new Canadians were cared for.
