CC TOO FEW CHILDREN" Sta,—Are we expressing, as we could,

what we feel towards the Dominions' troops now amongst us? Also about the offers of hos- pitality and care for British rhiltiren made by the Governments of the Dominions and the generosity of the United States of America? In the whining platitudes addressed by Marshal Petain to his people he gave as the first cause of France's disaster: " too few children"! If no Frenchwoman can spare time or scorn .to deal with this slur, may an Englishwoman do so? The studies by " Strategicus " show the technical reasons ; the general causes are too complicated to enumerate here. Both may be summarised as (a) too few tanks, (b) too many traitors.--s-Yours very truly,
