" ENGLAND SAGGING" American Attack on English Foreign Policy

A violent attack on British foreign policy, which has been quoted all over the United States, is made by Mr. Harry Carr, in the leading Pacific daily, the Los Angeles Times, under the heading of "England Sagging."

"England lost face and prestige terribly in this ridiculous fracas with Italy," he writes.

"Like a sick old woman, the British lion appealed to the League of Nations; begged the help of France; offered weak and tremulous concessions to Mussolini.

"The truth is, conditions for the British are so dangerous in the Orient that England does not dare risk a war in Europe even with a power as weak as Italy.

"She is holding Hong Kong only by the skin of her teeth, and without Hong Kong she can only look to an alliance with America and France to save herself in the Orient.

"And when she has to retire from the Orient, the Empire becomes an empty shell."
