GOES BY Every Churchill action since leaving Wasiiington is in furtherance of tills new propaganda war of nerves. Reports from within Germany, which he submitted at the white house meeting, obviously have stimulated the expectations that the German will to war can be conquered and crushed by confronting it daily with inevitability of its ultimate military defeat. Driver Fined After Auto Collision FEW MILITAR? AUTHORITIES here share Churchill’s hopf.^ in this respect to the fullest, but all are cooperating to give the experiment a full trial. The trouble is that this plan can only bring results through a revolutionary movement within Germany and Italy to over-throw the clinging control. Ordinary governments, in the face of the military situation now confronting the axis, would have collapsed long ago but the militant regimes in Berlin and Rome have such a stranglehold on their people as to enable them to continue to exist even without popular support.
