Greece meanwhile refutes newspaper reports suggesting any lack of faith with the Allies and German corruption of the king, politicians and military men (same page). A leader on page 8 is sceptical about how truthfully she can do this, but takes it as proof of Greece’s return to good faith - Sir John French sends a farewell message to his troops in France – page 9 - The latest foiled German plot in the US is one to blow up the Welland Canal – page 9 - “A quieter or more unostentatious wedding it is hard to imagine” says the report on Woodrow Wilson’s nuptials on page 9 - A lecture on the war suggests the Prince of Wales has been causing military authorities anxiety with his risk-taking – page 9 - “Little time has been lost by the War Office in calling up the first batch of men, who, after being attested under Lord Derby’s scheme, passed into the Reserve,” with the first men affected having to report for duty on January 20 – pages 9 and 10 - An American journalist reports on how German prisoners are treated in England – page 11. No prizes for guessing the report is favourable in tone - Satisfactory supplies of Christmas fruit are reported – page 14
