Appearing as the administration's clean-up witness before the senate foreign relations committee, Willkie said ho ELECTRIC L was "forced to conclude that the*, only way to render aid quickly enough is to pass this bill with modifications." After he has finished testifying WUlkie was to the White House and tell the president what he saw and heard in Britain where he talked with King George. Prime* Minister Winston Churchill, and almost, all ; other top government leaders. Willkie first endorsed the bill "with modifications" before he went to Britain.

Reason for the sweeping air offensive appears to be well founded fears that Nazi plans to strike new blows at Britain possibly on .several fronts at once are-almost ready. .The famed German .air force was almost inactive in contrast with the breath-taking pace set by RAF. Scope .of the British activity was indicated by a German claim that 33 British planes were destroyed i he money to be spent .to aid Britain, taut there was no confirmation.
