Buchanan Managing Director 1252 mur King and Country Meed You Right Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR All uncertainty as to the future at- titude of Greece has apparently been dispelled by the statements issued yesterday that-she had acceded to all the demands made by the Allies, and had given satisfactory assurance that no military measures would oe taken asainst the armies of the Al- lies should they bo lorced to retire to Greek territory. The situation in Serbia, so far as the Serb forces are concerned, ap- pears to be developing along the lines that have been anticipated. The Serbs have been unable to long with- stand the strong advance of the in- vaders, and are said to be in Ml re- treat towards the Albanian border. Henry Ford announces from New York that he has chartered a ship to go to Europe OB a peace crusade, and that he -will endeavor to lure the men from the trenches, which, he believes is the only way to sto'p the struggle. ndlan has apology to offer, have men or the Bournssu and La-.: vergno'type, and evidently they havoj few followers :amongst the native-j horn English Canadians, but very lew. Canada could have kept out' of this war, but in EO doing she; would have left her defence to others; and would have earned tho nnme of a- coward. Canada wns in danger from' the very moment war was declared. If Germany could have landed troops on our shores or bombarded our sen coasts she would havo done so wheth- er Canada was an- active participant in the war or not. Germany knows that Canada is a British possession, and by striking a blow at Canada, she would be sinking the Empire.

This, element is smalt, and is up ..of very narrow- minded men. From their standpoint it -would havo been proper lor Britain to have kept out of the war even though it had made a solemn agree- ment to protect the little nation of Let a great nation He; that would not be'against the principles of Christianity, la their Judgment; but to engage in war to uphold the pledged nord, because all efforts al peaceful settlement of Intel-national difficulties failed, is contrary to the teachings of Christianity as Interpret ed by these "higher critics."
