The Western zones have a month's supply of food on hand and there- fore perhaps that much grace. If Russia were to persist in the blockade it is diffi- cult to see how the Western nations could remain in Berlin, in spite of their an- nounced determination to do so At the moment it appears that nothing short of force would raise the food siege A firm stand by the Western nations, however, may cause the Russians to alter tactics which must appear odious to the rest of the world.
The latest statistics, for May, give the number of fatalities as a re- sult of motor accidents in that month as 42, a 25 per cent decrease from the corre- sponding month last year. The encouragement this announcement by the Motor Licence Office will bring is tempered, however, by the report that far from decreasing, the number of highway accidents rase from 4. The authorities might well begin with a systematic Province-wide examination of all vehicles to weed out those that, are a potential menace. The compara- tively small loss of life was due In a large measure to these people, to whom we offer our sincere appreciation.
Ord, deploring the condemn- ation of Canadian speech by a speech artist re- cently visiting In Victoria. Many who read the article by the latter must have been infuriated by the utter tactlessness of such a statement, and It Is pleasing to know that we have a champion in our midst in the person of Mrs. A few lessons m speech, as well as the countless reminders they receive about good grooming, would greatly benefit these young people.
He was an English mer- chant seaman who had a foot blown off by a Nazi raider, and who spoke impromptu about his experiences. I think 1 read somw4Wne ago that Laskier had also turned to marina literature, and if he writes half so well as he talked his booto should certainly be worth while. He sounded so real It was thought a skilled writer must have prepared his scripts and a professional actor given them voice.
He was too good to be true. That is often the fate of the genuine article— It draws suspicion Just be- cause it appears genuine. You know how sometimes a good-looking person takes a poor pic- ture while a lens can make a non- descript blossom into beauty. The movies can show you a paper flower that looks better than anything na- ture can produce. It is all too easy to assume that the person who may be a cut above you must of necessity be a fake This sort of feeling goes hand in hand with beltttlement. It Is amazing the nasty things that can be said about someone who gains fame, or the num- ber of skeletons he is supposed Vo have in his closet.
It was no fake to the sailors of the Royal Oak nor to the passengers of the Athenla. The expression "phoney war" must have been coined by a sadist who felt cheated of a vicarious thrill. In view of the ghastly Wood -letting that followed those early eight months would be better regarded as a comparative blessing It might even be more correct to call the present a "phoney peace. As In the case of Frank Laskier It might be wise to be readier lo accept things, and people, at their face value, at least until time proves you.
All that glitters la not counterfeit. Rush Everywhere end Get Nowhere Wherea. But there are many reasons why this Is not true: It takes iron nerve to Jump with a parachute. Passengers cannot be trained. Even with careful prepara- tion for a jump by untrained passen- gers. It takes an expert to Jump with a parachute. One must know how lo handle a parachute, must know the intricacies of wind, how to avoid col- lisions with other parachuters, how to steer the chute clear of water and other obstacles. Short- age of oxygen and shock, physical as well as mental, would also be dangers.
Parachuting requires special paraphernalia, special shoes, special clothing. Untrained passengers would have none of these things. Weather conditions might be freezing at the altitudes from which Jumps would have to be made Darkness, rough terrain, high-tension wires, buildings and water w r ould add to casualties "4. Necessary speed of airliners would hinder Jumps Asking untrained passengers to Jump at speeds in ex- cess of those imposed on experts would be courting casualties.

Aero- nautical authorities believe riding the airllrter down under the trained pi- lots guidance is safer under the vast majority of conditions "5. Most airliner accidents preclude the possibility of parachuting There have been very, very few cases where It was possible to know there was even a remote possibility of parachuting passengers.
The psychology attendant upon an accident situation strongly tends to persuade against the use of parachutes "The possibility of a skilled pilot bringing the plane in safely under adverse conditions will, we believe, nearly always prevail over the desire to jump into space. Someone has lo assume respon- sibility lor the decision to Jump. This would fall on the espum of the plane.

Apart from being a fantasy book, Forest Kingdom, also happens to be a narrative that is centered on the day-to-day hero. Rupert is also the unwanted child of the Forest King and the royal family. Moreover, the cutthroat politics of the court politics encouraged his father to lack trust completely. The chronicle begins as Rupert embarks on a quest to locate and crush a dragon, under gives the orders of his king. However, to locate the dragon, Rupert must find his way through the Darkwood, a forest that oozes darkness and ancient evil. The expedition eventually sends Rupert down the road to becoming tough and adept, and in the process transforming him into a man that he has always wanted to be.
Readers will find themselves falling in love with Rupert, during the early pages of the narrative. Just like Rupert, Julia is also a cast-off from her community. Nonetheless, once Julia is presented as a gift to the dragon, the dragon does not show any interest in harming Julia. The dragon even suggests that Julia should return with Rupert to the Forest Kingdom.
Instead of being a ruthless creature that many residents of the Forest Kingdom believed, the dragon had a surprising jovial personality. Due to his jovial personality, the dragon ends up befriending Rupert. Due to their new friendship, the dragon ends up accompanying Rupert on his journey back to the Forest Kingdom. Thus, the trio embarks on a journey, which will test their cores in every way. Blue Moon Rising has many bad things happening, and many people are going to pass on. However, Blue Moon Rising is also filled with humor, which in some way will make the readers overlook the seriousness of some of the gruesome killings in the book.
As the second book in the series, author Simon R. Green introduces the readers to another character, Jordan, the greatest actors in the Forest Kingdom. In Blood and Honor, Jordan puts his exceptional skills to the test, when he is asked to act as a stunt double to the local prince who was ailing. Nonetheless, it does not take long before Jordan realizes that both the journey and the destination is more than what he had expected.
