briefing By LAURENCE MEREDITH LONDON UPI Twenty years ago Hitler sent hordes of bombers and fighter aircraft over southern England to smash the Royal Air Force and soften up Britain for invasion But the glorious few not what today is called The Battle of Britain Remembered vividly by all Englishmen over 30yearsold it was a time of warm clear days of an incredibly beautiful fall with the peaceful fields golden with a bumper harvest But the blue skies were criss crossed with vapor trails like a printed record of the unbelieva ble battle being fought five miles up EVERY TIME an aircraft trailing black smoke plum metted to earth or a parachute drifted down the English people were reminded grimly of the life and death struggle for their freedom being fought out above But to every school child in the land today the Battle of Britain is as ancient history as the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon or the smashing of the invading Spanish Armada by the navy of Queen Elizabeth I So to keep this historic battle green in the minds of the British people and especially the young on whom the future depends the Air Ministry has just issued a 26page booklet on the Battle of Britain to every school child WITH 42 photographs to illus trate it the events of the battle are told in simple vivid phras ing from the fall of France in May until the Germans gaye up their aerial assault of Britain in daylight on Sept 301940 The booklet opens with an ex cerpt of the famous speech Prime Minister Winston Church ill made in the House of Com mons on June 18 1940 after the fall of France when lie told

and the action of the General Assembly which met in emergency session earlier this week and gave Hammarskjold a 700 vote of confidence in a move that indirectly rebuked Russian military intervention in the Congo Khrushchev demanded that Hammarskjolds post be abol plans and demanded that colonished and that it be replaced by rt that afternoon standing hunched before the dispatch box in the House of Commons Churchill said What Gen Weygand called the Battle of France is over I expect that the battle of Britain is about to begin THE WHOLE fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war If we can stand up to him all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad sunlit uplands But if we fail then the whole world including the United States including all that we have known and cared for will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister and perhaps more protracted by the lights of perverted sci ence Let UStherefore brace our selves to our duties and so bear ourselves that if the British em pire and its commonwealth last for a thousand years men will still say This
