We must get down to a cold realization of the sit- uation and prepare to meet It. It has been Mid that Canada can solve her far problems easier than i other country lo Ihe war. With our great undeveloped natural resources, we art, so far as raw materials are concerned, undoubtedly ia a mare advantageous position than any of our allies, but our wealth, so to speak, is al tho crass roots.

The downward trend of the fraac shows he weakening confidence in France's position. Even tie neutral countries In Eu- rope are facing serious issues, parti- cularly those like Sweden whose con- 'idence in the German war machine ead them to invest largely in nan marks with the result that many of their financial institutions are fac- ing bankruptcy. Without sufficient coal for dome a tic requirements, the tew manufacturing plants operating on the continent have heen obliged to shut down., !Many countries suffering from lack of food, are also suffering tho horrors of midwinter without coal. Karainai sickness, poverty and deatii prevail in large sections of Europe. Britain, the One Bright Spot The ono brlgnt'spol In Europe is Gt, Britain. The confidence of every Brit-' Isher you meet la most re-assuring and after a visit of a few weeks you come away feeling that Great -Britain will come through all right and while she will have many difficulties, there will be no revolution or Bolshevism in the British Isles, There Is evidence that labor is becoming more sound In its position and that there will he early curtailment in government expendi- ture and economy alt nlong the line.

Each country which benefits by the fund would he. obliged to finance the fund to the extent of. their net balance ot trade against the other members of the pool. For.sucn credit as any Kuropean nation receiv- ed from this fund, they would be oblig- ed to pledge their revenues or such other valuable securities as tho com- Fires B re ak O u t and thieves break in.

In Kngland profiteering is rampan i. mfssioners of the fund ralgbt ttcdde. 1 understand' that the revenues of practically every country in Europe ore available as security for such adrnncea. Under some such scheme, the United States would be called up- on to finance Europe for her balance of trade against them al the present aggregating about four billion dollars a year. Nationally Hpeafctng, this sum represents her annual gain from her foreign trade. H would seem a mod- est request to ask the United Stales in the effort to save Europe, and thereby keep her best customers solv- ent, to risk this gain lor the next three or four yeara.
