We have, upon occasion, called attention to. what we conceived to be the inaccuracies and inexactness of reports appearing in the press and in broadcasts on the air about public matters. With the exception of outright falsification, we know of no satisfactory method to prevent such reporting and commentating. It is up to the public to use its intelligence and to correctly appraise the information that comes from a variety of sources. U-BOATS APPEAR AGAIN'. The warning recently issued by the First Lord of the British Admiralty, telling us that U-boats have reappeared in Atlantic shipping lanes, is coupled with announcement of the safe arrival of the "largest ocean supply convoy of all times". Mr. Alexander's statement should remind us of the continuing necessity to control the sea lanes and the vital role played by merchant shipping in the mounting of our European invasion. The movement of men and supplies across the Atlantic, involving 350,000,000 tons of shipping, represents an achievement of the first magnitude, reflecting credit upon Allied navies which include merchant ships as well as warships. Without this avenue of supplies, the British would not have been able to resist Germany and the Allies would have despaired of victory. trihuled there.
