CIRCLE OF THE WAR .Uneasiness has again been created in England over the possibility that Greece may not after al! comply with' all the demands of the Allies. The Greek government Is not yet ready to secede to all the requests, and has asked a. conference with military ex- perts .of the- Allies to further discuss the "situation. 'The Serbian situation has not great- ly improved for Uie Allies. The Serbs are now.said to be retiring into Al- bania. The British, however, do not admit that the Teutons have success- fully! completed their campaign in; Serbia. The fate of Monastir is still uncertain, and the Allies have been able to hold their lines in the south. -The Italians are said to have finally. invested the city of Gorizia. timated that the preseut separation al- lowance will uot ho Increased. Tie Patriotic Fund came into ex- istence to lessen the hardships of sol- diers' dependents in Uie numerous cases, particularly in' the larger con tfes. where the government allowance is uot sufficient to'enable the mother of -a youuK family to maintain her children in the way ia they had been provided for by the breadwinner the family before he went to the front. There are also other cases where the sole support of an aged father or mother has gone to the war, and where it is impossible to do with- out domestic help. It is no doubt, true that a general in- crease of the separation aKowauce, and the widening of its scope would meet the end aimed at by the Patri-j otic Fund, and place the burden on the shoulder of the taxpayer. But even that wouUl'not equalize matters, for the bulk of Canada's taxes, as the WHY ALL THE DELAY? A nevr regiment, the 151st, is author- teed? for South Edmonton, and the commanding officer is named. What the delay in the appoint- ment of a commanding officer for the 113th, the Kilties, author- ized several weeks ago? .The 151st was not authorized until it had a commanding officer. The 113th has been authorized, but lacks the officer. The local recruiting officers have done: splendidly, so far, but the 113th can-not be quickly recruited until there is a commanding officer, and re- cruiting is undertaken throughout the couth. The .material is. available, but can- .not 'be secured until recruiting is sys- tematically undertaken outside the city. :Over -one hundred have already been recrniteSTTunaer the leadership of public-spirited citizens. The entire regiment can soon be raised, if a com- manding officer is appointed, and a re-' cruiUng campaign put under way in the southern towns. THE MONEY FOR THE PATRIOTIC FUND Manitoba municipal leaders in con- that the legislature bring into effect legislation that will permit municipalities to impose a tax for'tbe raising of money for the Pat- riotic Pond.
