'RESOLUTE BRITISH' LAUDED BY HALIFAX; 'Determination of Ordinary Folk' Makes Victory Sure, Ambassador Says Here HOPE OF AID STRESSED He Opens Exhibit of War Art and Is Heard on London-U.S. Broadcast With Whitney

Against a background of British war scenes, which portrayed cheerful, humorous and determined moods as well as grim ones, Lord Halifax, the British Ambassador, opened the "Britain at War" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art last night with a tribute to the "unmistakable records of that calm and determined resolution with which the ordinary folk of Britain meet the varying hazards of this most grim war."
