A El or December 1 no private liarcclrj will lio sent to any prisoners oC war in Germany. This, I fear, will cause consternation in Canada.

"At present the distribution of par- cels among prisoners la very uneven, many receiving more than they can possibly consume, while others arc sent much too little. The government have decided to limit the amount of food which may be sent to any pris- oner, so aa to prevent tbe unneces- sary depletion of stock in this coun- try. It "is therefore necessary that only one organisation should be au- thorized to send parcels of food to a particular prisoner of war. Packets Twice Censored "It Js possible that hitherto you have been in tho habit ot packing parcels for prisoners of war yourself. Ymir parcels are now censored be- fore England. Each parcel Is ooened and unpacked and its con- tents examipcd and repacked; it is also liable to censorship in the conn- try to which It ia addressed. The censorship involves damage to cer- tain Articles. Further, the German government has recently issued ders that parcels which do not eman- ate from the families of the prison- ors ni.ust be banded over to tho Bri- tish charity committees if one exists in the camp, to the camp (Mt a full weetfe luMtly at baking, the loafoill In a> at the fltrt.
