WINSTON CHURCHILL'S .RETIREMENT Winston Churchill .is now bein; praised where: he -was damned only recently. Every expedition, partici- pated in "by the Navy that did not iueet-" with S success was blamed on Churchill, and it is only-now. that we learn that the former "First Lord "was not always responsible. It is true he tikes responsibility for the Darda- nelles affair, but .not wholly. During all this time when criticism was pour- Irig upon his head, and Then he lost the Admiralty office in the Coalition government, Churchill did not whim- ptr. He kept his peace, and now after months he speaks and his rush to admit that he was a much maligned man, and not deserv- ing'of tbe attacks made upon him. Just Hour the press and critics are attempting to shatter a great many reputations, but as the war progresses light may be thrown upon events to pWve that men whom we critic-fee and florae are not responsible at all, as is largely the case -with Winston Church- Churchill is a brilliant man and he Will go far In Britain-yet He Is a food soldier, as well as a statesman, and like 'true Briti. her, he is to join the fighting'ranks -when he leeis his services are no longer re- quired at home The nation will nev- er forget Churchill's preparedness 'policy with the navy. The efficiency the fleet' and its readiness for eer- vice -when war was declared are large- ly, If not wholly, due to the foresight of the then brilliant young Firaf Lord tif.tbe Admiralty.
