We saw last week that we ean.iot bliekade the Herman pons by minefields r.o long aw i we know that minefields have been , ! laid. Our government has warned na-l ; vlgators to avoid three areas; one of j about eon souare miles, from the j Flemish coast to the mouth of the I ; Thames; another, thn-e or four tiniei! ; this size, uff the iJauish coast and | ; stretcliing into the Kattegat; a third, tea times the size of the lirst; stretch-ing from Norway to within _o or :;0 miles of Scotland. Few understand, bow ;mil yast minefields can be made, or e.\.icily what their value is. A submarine, ihcy pay. can slip through a space r.O feet Wide, and between two levels 4o feel apart. To make a minefield inpenet rable to submarines, then, you would want mines at the rate of l^n to the mile laterally, and at every In feet level till you got as low as a sttbiiiariiir could dive. If we take 'JiiO feet as the lowest, (hen six layers, if not seven, would be wanted. Now all (he North Sea from Norway to Scotland is deeper than unit feet. To make a single harrier, then, "ilii miles long wo should want 2tl multiplied by seven, or Sin mines to the mile, or more I than 20n,nno mines for one section of j this barrier alone, i Cost of a Minefield I .Vow. mines are not cheap. They i may cost anything from �10u to .i;::nn 'apiece without explosive, and T.N.T. and gun-cotton aro pretty expensive nowadays. Fifty millions sterling , would go in a single unit of a single 1 minefield at this rate. Hut in war we i Ignoro cost. Y�s; but we cannot Ig-; noro work anil the time it takes. The1 | first thing, then, that bothers the lay reader is that it is quite Impossible to imiko the minefields at, all. The second is that, when you do make a minefield, you have (o tell all the world where it is. You are bound to do this hy the convi ntions which we, who are parties to them, consider binding. "Well, if we warn nil the world, tho enemy submarines will keep out of the inlnetields, and then what is the use? The truth of'tho matter is that there is no pretence ninde that, once a mine-Held Is proclaimed, every part of It is always Impenetrable. What is meant Is that any part of It may at any time be dangerous. Xo minefield and no part of a minefield is strewn so thickly that no submarine can possibly slip through. The area has to be large precisely because, when fields avo established on separate levels, they must bo a considerable distance apart. The mine-layers must have plenty of room for travelling about and looking after their mines, nnd replacing thosn which break away nnd are lost. It Is their secret what parts of Iho Held are snfo add what aro unsafe. The numbers of mines used, thou, nre nothing llko so fabulous r.s the too logical layman lias supposed. Noxt, tho purpose of tho minefield Is not dofeated If tho enemy avoids it, because its purposes is not merely to trap him, it Ih to divert him. Tho threat of mines HmltB his freedom of nctlon, just as tho throat of tho tor-podoos in hattlo may forco IiIk ships to manoeuvre to got out of their way. If no submarine enn get either from the German harbors, from Zeobrnggeo, or from Oslend Into tho Channel, except through a narrow passago off the llrltlsh coast, tho tank of watching their passago Is very much simplified. If tho German pirates aro cut off from siioaklng up the North Soa by way of Denmark and Norway, and aro com polled to como across to our coasts If th'oy wish to go round Scotland to the Atlantic, then tho job of listonlni; for thorn, tracing them, nnd dopth-churgliiK them is mado much simpler. Lot us start, thou, with tho proposition Unit tho minefield Is Intended to facill-tato all tho other methods of dealing with tho submarine. Distant fliH Bloefe�ledge of satisfaction and your way of knowing that you are getting style that will ast and shape that will-hold until the fabric is worn out. In Society Brand the workmanship is carried to a farther degree of excellence than probably in any other clothes.
