The air offense against Corregidor is lessening. Japanese first sent 64 planes, then 47, then groups of three. Now only two planes come at a time, due to heavy losses from anti aircraft fire to large formations. Attack by two planes goes on steadily night and day, in an effort to exhaust the limited number of anti aircraft gunners and use up the ammunition supplies.

The formal announcement that Canada would not send troops to Australia while Australia’s very life is endangered does not make us think more of England or Canada. Canada’s troops must be saved to protect England’s precious population and not Australia’s. It is too bad such distinctions of breeding and superiority must always be drawn by the Limeys.
