TWENTY-TWO THE CITIZEN, OTTAWA, ONT. JWDAV. SEPTEMBER 4, 1939. Men, Mud, Mountains Poland's Hope In War Country Has Live Rail Lines and Numerous Roads to Service Frontier as Compared to Sinple Railroad And One Highway in Slovakia. Central Poland Offers Invader Prairie Mud. Along Germany's Siegfried Line Associated Press Men, mud and mountains are Poland's own hopes to stem the German tide. The Polish south has the Carpathian peaks rearing 7,500 feet into the sky to block a flanking invasion by way of Hungary. Almost as high, the Tatras shunt Germany's Slovakian approach to a narrow northern portion of the Slovak-Polish border. The Germans found,but a single railroad and a single highway in Slovakia there. Poland had five i all lines ar.d numerous roads to service her comparative frontier. Central Poland offers an invader prairie mud, to which is geared perfectly the Polish reliance on infantry and horse-mounted cavalry as the backbone of her some 500.000 regular army. Germany is reported to have regulars and reservists totalling about 4,000.000 Every Pole Army Man. Every Pole is an army man continuously from the age of 21 to : fcfl, on call during all of 29 years In some form of regular full-time er reserve unit. This system of universal con-fcription in peacetime gives the I Poles, despite their limited population total, an estimated reser-I voir of 4,500,000 trained reserves ! and a total manpower of 6.000.000. Form Strategic Aid. The Polish network of highways and railroads converging upon its industrial heart are a great strategic aid to defence, and I her wide rivers and numerous waterways including many canals- can be shifted in many instances from defensive aids to : obstacles in the face of an invader as he advances. The central location of Warsaw, on the other hand, makes the Polish capital especially vulnerable to short flights by planes with heavy bomb loads. Against the pincer position of East Prussia and Germany against the Corridor. Poland had the confidence that remote Prussia would be difficult to service with supplies and men from the Reich, once sea transport became hazardous. As an ace in the hole, the Poles hoped to interpose against any successful East Prussian advance the 3.000 feet width of the Vistula river, which flows through Warsaw and has no bridges for 45 miles between Trzew and ! Grudziadz. These mighty slabs of steel and concrete have all the appearance of ruins left by some vanished prehistoric race. Actually they are tank barriers along Germany's Siegfried Line on the Western front. Calls for "Complete Unity" To Resist "March of Evil" No Matter What the Cost Arrhdcacon Scott, Padre of Canadian Fortes in Fast War Makes Trenchant Appeal to Canadian People. Guardianship of Millions Is Inspiration to Men and Women to Rise in the Emergency. Declares That Italy Must Take Sides. WELL AND. Ont.. Sept. 3 Archdeacon Frederick George Scott, beloved padre of the Canadian forces in the 1914-18 conflict, today called for "complete unity" in Canada, and said We cannot stand aside and allow the marrh of evil to advance." Archdeacon Scott was here for unveiling of the Welland-Crowland war memorial. "At last the blow has fallen." he continued. "It has fallen as cruel destruction has oommenced upon an innocent people who cry to tis for help. It Is almost with relief that we feel the suspense of the 1; it few weeks is now over and the time for action has come. "The British Empire, which has been built up by the labors and courage of our forefathers, nas now been called by God for the defence of human liberty and justice. The guardianship of millions of possible victims of the remorseless ferocity latent In the hearts of a group of men, no matter what it may cost us as individuals or as a nation, is an inspiration to all full-blooded men and women to rise in the emergency. Cannot Stand Aside. "When we remember the brutal treatment of the Jews and of the Catholics and Protestants alike, and when we recall the brutal treatment of all who in the great fUiiwatJ IMlAtam "....4 (.Waif WftM hearts of right thinking men and i women the power and joy of the i life founded in the freedom of I democracy. That lesson. I would like to prophecy, will unite more and more the peoples of this continent whether technically at war or J not, in their determination to pre-I serve the ideals which come from j Christ and alone make national existence tolerable. Must Have Unity. "In Canada, now at war, we ; must have complete unity. There must be no setting race against race or one religion against another. All these things are of the past. "The house of life is ablaze, and each of us must do his part to save it from being the wreck of ; the world. With clear heads and ( aim resolution, with courage that never falters under whatever blows that may fall, we must press on. and if there is a God in heaven who loves his little children and ' the brotherhood of men we shall win, no matter how long the war may last. "We must make it plain to Italy i that the ruse of her neutrality. ,no doubt part of the strategy of Hitler to guard the Brenner Pass j from the Allies, must not be allowed Italy must be either on our side, which she likely would Canada Will Draw On Its Experience During Great War Canada's experience in the Great War is likely to be drawn upon in the near future, with a view to avoiding many of the costly errors which developed early in that conflict. This year a Defence Purchasing Board was created in Canada and it has just begun to function, under the chairmanship of R. C. Vaughan, vice-president in charge of the purchasing and stores department of the Canadian National Railways. It is not unlikely that an organization along the lines of the Imperial Munitions Board may be set up. Created in 1915. This board was created in 1915. It succeeded the shell committee which the late Sir Sam Hughes, then minister of militia, had ! organized with a view to supplying shrapnel shell to the Imperial government. The first shipments of shell from Canada to England had been made in December, 1914. By the end of the following May about 400 establishments in this country were engaged in the manufacture of shells or component parts. The Imperial Munitions Board took over from the shell committee. Its general policy was to eliminate the middleman and deal direct with the manufacturer. Raw materials were purchased by the board and passed on from one contractor to another, each being paid successively for his labor. This plan had the advantage of saving the contractor large capital Investments necessary to produce the completed missile, and it enabled a proper distribution of raw material to ensure maximum production. The board consisted of a chairman and four members. Business men were asked to take charge of varloui departments, of which j there were about 20. The directors carried on their duties in Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and i Victoria. Important Departments. The more important depart-merits were the purchasing and ' steel branch which bought all the against Hitler's actions, and also and take the consequences. Russia, pendent thought, and the breaking of treaties the sardonic satisfaction with which might is trampling upon right, the strong crushing the weak, we cannot stand aside and allow the marrh of evil to advance. Our duty is now plain.

Some conception of Its work may be gathered from the fact that during the Great War Canada exported, among many other items, the following: Shells, 65.343,000; fuses. 29,-638,000; fuse parts. 16.174,000; cartridge cases. 48.627,000; percussion primers, 33,386,000; exploder containers, 13,285.000; shell and other forgings, 6.412.-000; explosives and chemicals, 111,297.000 pounds ( weight i; airplane lumber 23.080,000 feet; other lumber, 30,236,000. Engaged in war contracts were between 250.000 and 300.000 people, exclusive of about 50,000 who handled the transportation of the stores. In all, the value of munitions and material exported from Canada from August. 1914. to the end of 1918 was $1,002,672,413. Six Houston Girls Possible Victims Associated Frew HOUSTON.

Egyptian Premier Ali Maher Pasha announced today that in conformity with the Anglo-Egyptian treaty, Egypt has broken off diplomatic relations with Germany. Many Inquiries At N.Y. to Join Canadian Forces Canadian Press. NEW YORK. Sept. 5. Natives of almost every nation, including Germany, are flooding the office of the Canadian government trade commissioner with requests for information on how they can join the Canadian expeditionary force, if one is raised in the current European crisis. An official of the trade office said that in the last 10 days or from the date the Russo-German non-aggression pact was signed more than 150 inquiries have been made. All the potential fighters, and nurses, are being asked to communicate with the Canadian Department cf National Defence, at Ottawa. Two strapping German youths who identified themselves as crew-members of a German liner then in port, visited the office this week and said they had deserted ship "to join Canada's army and fight the Nazis." Drafted Father at 54. The trade official said "the younger of the pair, who was probably about 22. told me his 54-year-old father had been conscripted by the German army and despite his age would see front line duty." He further quoted the German sailor: "We are anxious to fight against any country, even our Fatherland, that would treat an old man like that." One recent enquirer, an American commercial aviator, returned to the trade office several days later to say the National Defence Department had accepted his offer to join the Royal Canadian Air Force. Another caller, a man In his late 40's who fought In the Great War with the American expeditionary, forces, said he represented "36 of my buddies in France" in seeking information as to how the Canadian army might be joined. A large percentage of those seeking information are Europeans, many of them German Jews. Hungary's Nazi Parly Threatened With Split Associated Press BUDAPEST, Sept. 3. Hungary's Nazi party, torn with dissension over differing war sympathies, threatened to split wide apart today. The Hungarians' j traditional friendship for Po- j land set the 50 Nazi members 0t the Lower House of Parlia- j ment to quarreling bitterly among themselves. Most were said to openly sympathize with Poland against Germany. First WaT Night Finds London's Population Calm By GUY RHOADES Canadian Press Staff Writer LONDON. Sept. 3. The first night of war found London's population calm, cheerful, busy, some perhaps drinking a little harder ' than usual, but self-possessed. Swarms of newspapermen from ! every country in the world except Germany moved their typewriters over to the bureau of information where official communiques will be j issued and where the censors were at work. Censors Work on Copy The man at the reception desk occasionally shouted the name of a newspaper or news service as copy came back from the censor's office cut or "okayed." Officials explained the censors would pass or reject copy only on the grounds that it might be harmful or unharmful. Thus a story, subsequently denied, that a British man-o'-war seized the Ger man steamship Bremen, passed. 80 Phones Available Outlying Parts of Empire Rally to Mother Country In Conflict With Germany Australia and !Nch Zealand Issue War Declarations.
