German Strategy Begins.Tothange
The EngHA:Picture
• Germany, apparently, has found its most effec
•twe 'weapon in the war 'with 'England. - in `the
-methodical :raids through •which - it is -devastating
She industrial midlands ,town by town.
.Since those .paralyzing :raids 'began with . the
devastation of Coventry 'we':have noted 'the sure
;:igns of :British weakening. 'Because - England •is
'no longer able to build-new , bottoms 'fast enough .
'her .:ea losses have reached - the critical :stage.
•The'BritiSli censor, has suddenly •become obnox
ious in his flare for blacking out even - the most
ohvioug' facts. The British claims are beginning
:11..svo..sornething 'of - the clear, empty ring 'that
weviously we attributed 'to •Germany in the 'ac
counts of 'the air battle.
As •Britain fails, our own day of reckoning is
drawing nearer. We ,know now what we did not
/know at 'the start of this war, 'that -Britain's war
' What has been :said here !before' is bedoming
Clearer now as 'Britain's situation turns critical:
That, if once we enter this war, we will be sorry
we had entered• sooner.
'We will' be. sorry 'thatwe allowed 'Britain - to , drop
almost . to 'the . ..bottom' before we'nnoved to - pull her
We"will'recbgnize that in waiting we have
'made:our -ownjobiharder.
Silence From Thelßoroagh
What the borough authorities are thinking about
the parking regulations—unless it be ncithing--
-ii; hard to divine 'from 'the •discussion at borough
cour_cii.meeting'•Monday•night. •Nothingwas said.
Nothing - •was -said. Yet the borough itself :has
condemned the ,present,parking -situation because
+it -is impossible 'to :get fire engines through the
-r.txedts:in..the early-morning hours without serious .1
Nothing'•was said. Yet - the'borough continues to
allow !parking on both •sides of a great many
::tredts in violation *of the law.
'Nothing was said. Yet the borough is tolerating
41 :nuisance that could be 'cleared 'up by simply
iy.assing a - - new • statute.
People who •have cars must park'them. Unfor
tunately, cars won't fold up or evaporate 'when
'they are not wanted.. A ;lot of the TOO student 4
owners 'have mo suitable wrkitig spaces - nearby.
- The:same is'true of a lot . Of townspeople. As
milt :they have .left 'their cars in 'the streets over
inight. 'The borough,• recognizing thetiecessity,•has
tolerated the .violations. Now, :however, 'the t!
authorities are seekingto clear up the dangers the
ituatiorr creates.
One of the 'worst aspects of the present safety

.Ralph W. Barnes was only one of the many for

have 'been dashing about Avarqom Europe, in the

We use the;past tense in speaking of Mr. Barnes,
for he was killed in the crash of a British bomb
ing :4)lne Monday. 'After a 10-year, colorful
