' Buunuu-uie menace ana , ngurea tre mendously in the winning of the war, Rear Admiral William S. Simms com mander in chief of the American na val forces in European waters, de clared on his arrival here aboard the British liner Mauretania. . Depth charges and listening devi ces he said, contributed materially to success in Maintaining practically unbroken trans-Atlantic "bridge" of transports and supply ships essential to the allied victory as did the "mag nificent work" of the merchant sea men who took their cargoes across, convoy or no convoy but it was the convoying scheme, worked out in a fine detail by the combined fleets of the associated powers, the officer as serted, which made possible the trans portation and supplying of the great American force whose appearance in battle with the allies turned the tide against the German invaders on the western front. Germany was winning the war, the rear admiral stated, when he arrived in England the day after the United States became a belligerent. Teuton interference with the allied shipping he added, was a serious problem, sol ved only when conferences of the British, American and allied com mands worked out and put into prac tice the system of protecting vital ships, which prevailed unl the ces sation of hostilities.

The humble citizen of Italy in sists upon doing his part to help his country to, carry her war and post war financial burdens. There are no Thrift Stamps and War Savings Stamps in Italy, and there are hun dreds of thousands of patriotic Ital ians who never have more than a.-' dollar or two at a time to offer their government. . "Mi'tL'aani But in Italy, just as in all nth? belligerent nations, a wav has ben provided to take advantage of the invaluable assistance which the small est mvester can ge the nation both in war and in peace. The Italian government has arranged to sell nrr bonds through the banks on the elub plan. A workman or small farmer goes to a bank and makes a small de posit and asks that a 100 lire $20) war bond be purchased for him. '-He-then completes the payment for hi bond at the rate of 7 lira .($1.40) per month. He may secure a 500 lira band bv monthlv iuvmnti 35 lira ($7.00). Though they have different meth ods of coveting the contributions of that large proportion of their ci tizens who are unable to accumulate ' $100 or even $20 at one time, it will be found that every one of the belli gerent nations has found it absolute-: ly essential to make some arrange ment to secure the support of the " small invester. Great Britian and the United State8 are meeting the situation by the sale of small denom inational government securities in the form of war savings stamps or securities. France, Italy and others accomplish the same result by issu ing a small denomination bond pay able on some sort of an installment' plan. England's Peace Expenditure.
