Zukauskas :Wednesday Morning,,December 3,1940 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 :SF-ourwar. ' 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 thazard. 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 a.re 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.
