LONDON: “We do not know how far we have to go; we do not know how long victory will be denied or what tribulations we shall have to ask our peoples to endure,” said Mr. Winston Churchill, the British Premier, speaking at the closing meeting of the war-time conference of the British Commonwealth Prime Ministers yesterday [May 16].

Mr. Churchill, continuing, said: “We are absolutely sure that they will not be found unequal to the tests and trials, however long, however heavy, and that after these are over shall preserve in union and in association that poise and calm for which, we like to feel, we have been honoured in the world and take at least as large a part in leading mankind out of the miseries into which they have fallen as we took in bearing the brunt of the struggle which broke upon us some five years ago. — Dawn Delhi
