I The leading Times" editorial note of I Thursday was as follows:— 11 The conference at Rome, from which the Prime Minister and Lord Milner have just returned, may well prove to be one of the turning-points of the war. "More thall one vital decision was reached, with that completeness of bar-! inoliv which is only possible for statesmen who have all the facts before them and are single-minded in their determination to set the cause of all above the national interests of each. On Monday we warned the public, ■ with what plainness was compatible with discretion, that the Allied Governments, as unanimous as the peoples they repre- < sent in their will for peace by victory uione, were about to reach momentous decisions'" upon which the date of that victory might well depend. These de-I CiSlOIls have now been reached. We arc satisfied that wisdom has fire vailed, and that the road to victory, long though it may be, is now running traight to its appointed end."
