MEN OF THE MAPLE LEAF
SAVE THE SITUATION A MAGNIFICENT FEAT OF ARMS (Received April '28, 9.10 a.m.) _. • , LONDON, 27th April. The newspapers feature the Canadians' gallantry. Many Canadians paraded the streets. The feeling behind it all is that the Canadians saved the situation by the sacrifice of their lives. Mr. J. L. Garvin, editor of the Observer, says : "The men of the maple leaf set their teeth to dare all by a magnificent' feat of arms which will stand out an the annals of the war. Their sheer valour in a critical hour baffled the Germans. The Germans' use of asphyxiating gases proved how the utmost resources of scientific deviltry will go down before the indomitable hearts of freemen; Canada's hour is to-day; it will be Australia's and New Zealand's to-morrow. The_ situation exceeds in some ways and precedents a political romance, the possibility of which was not conceived. Before the war the Dominions had known Britain as a mighty mother, but she now is mightier than of old. THE EFFECT IN CANADA-RECRUITING OFFICERS OVERWHELMED OTTAWA, 27th April. The recruiting officers are overwhelmed with applications from officers. The Canadian casualties on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday include 21 officers killed, including three colonels, and 59 wounded.
