Dexter, Executive Director, Unitarian Service Com mittee, explains why his organiza tion has decided that it should not pngage in sending food or supp-! lies to France, or to any of, t li e other occupied countries, l^rimarily, the decision was based upon the conclusion that the supplies sent, even to unoccupied France, much less to the occupied countries of Europe, would actu ally add to Gernmny’s resources and thus increase her fighting strength. While particular supp lies might not fall into Geman hands, they would release other supplies which could be used by Germany. Illustrating the pojnt, he says that one of the Committee’s re- ago from France to tell that only one third of the preserved fruits, canned in Southern IVance this autumn, were allowed to remain there.

The I beautifully lighted interior, a scene of solemn grandeur, echoed! of 1 Yuletide British before the attack is about all that will count, W. L. White, writing from Lon don for The North American Newspaper Alliance, says that Nazi tactics in the air indicate that the real purpose of the flights may be to~^ train German pilots to key objectives and to familiarize them with night fly ing. He says that the small - mount of actual military and in dustrial damage and the use of not more than one half or one- third of Germany’s available plan es support this belief^ According to Mr. White, neu tral coiTespondents in London think there is better than a forty per cent chance that the Germans wiJJ attempt an invasion within the next six weeks and that the Germans will have less than a forty net:_ ccnt chance of suceed- ing. \Miile an attempted nvasion the hradships being inflicted on the British people.” In the judg ment of the Committee, “every ounce of supplies sent to France and the occupied sections of Eur ope may increase the hardships which the British people are un dergoing.
