Buchanan John Torrance Uahafiing Director Business Miinager Your King and Country need you right now: I---------------T ||round the circle |0F the war That the Tuited Stales fully realizes I 'the consequences that may come at any moment ns the result of her clatest note to Germany, is evidenced |by the orders issued to prepare the I ^Atlantic fleet for war service. ^Y11-^Bon's government Is taking no chan-iJces. What army and navy they have jwlU be prepared for eventualities. I The German government is at its ?old game of sparring for time on the itf. S. note. Their first move will likely be to ask for further and fuller in-|formaUon on some iKjlnts, and to fotherwise postpone action till feeling Jcools down. I On the front at Verdun the French lhave repulsed still further German at-|tacks, in which the Huns used liquid fflre. In one sector the French made [several more small gains. I Fresh victories in East Africa by ||the British troops against the Germans, are reported. �HELP MAKE HISTORY N FRIDAY NEXT I Advocates of the "Lelhbridge Beau-:tltul" campaign can hardly help but |be enthusiastic over the proposal of |;the Arbor Day committee to concen-(trate next Friday's efforts on planting trees at Henderson Park. The Herald has long advocated such a step- but it has been Impossible to do anything on a lar;. cale heretofore because the ground never been sufficiently cultivated to bring good results. But this year conditions are {deal and every citizen should throw In his best efforts next Friday that pmething lasting may be accomplished. ..... Lest any citizen feel that it would pe a waste of time and money to plant trees;in large numbers at Henderson ParK, we might cite what hap-jened In the city of Denver, Colo, rwenty-eight years ago the famous 3ity Park there was as barren as Hen-lerson Park Is today. But the citi-:enis had an eye for the beautiful and rees were planted in profusion. To-lay �City Park Is as beautiful a spot is Qne could find. The trees, many l>f them, are forty or fifty feet In ^eight. It is a shining example of vhat-faith and work can accomplish. JjoipmiSBioner Grace and Supertntend-|int Fairfield of the Experimental arm will vouch for the siicoess that las'attended the efforts of the people |f Denver, it :l6 worth noting too that, with tie co-operation of the cltlz�a8 of Bthhridge the cost of making Hen-ereon Park a forest of trees will not B ;large. The city owns the park, nd also the tree*; If the citizens will tjpply the labor to transplant them lie big result will be accomplished, 'he cost of cultivation after planting rill be but a small item. So we have lie-; � opportunity of accomplishing Bmethlug worth while without add-g a jot to the Us bill. Knowing this the Herald feels it un-fecessarj' to urge upon the citizens of Ethbrldge the Importance of turning ut en masse next Friday. tnclo it presents. Always out of sympathy with the stand ot the nation in the great war. it finds itself caught In the rapids and frantic are its efforts to save itself. It culls aloud for one thing to happen-for cougrosa to undo what President Wilson has done, it does not suggest that Germany meet the V. S. demands-far from it. That Wilson might bo de/ent-od is ita one hope. A few months ago Teddy noosevelt felt the lash of its words and some hope was pinned on President Wilson who then appeared to be wavering. Now all the loaders are .igalnst Gennany and thp pro-German press is in a bad way. Listen to the Kaiser's U. S. press rant: lilinois Staats Zeitung, Chicago: AVe are not aware that Mr. Wilson ever received a mandate to represent humanity, iuid if he did he ought to reltim his retainer for he never represented humanity, but the interests of the ammunition manufacturers in opposition to the real interests of humanity, Wliy not rattier send a throat to the nation whose inhuman stoppage of focd products for tho civil population of Germany caused tho auhmarlne war? We do not even now believe that the president wants war and we are sure that the nation docs not want it. Xew York Staats Zeitung: It is unthinkable that the German government should recognize these credentials (the president's) as the representative of all neutral nations and grant the peremptory demands of the president as long as" the cause for the inauguration of this submarine warfare-the Illegal British blockade and Interference with the commercial rights of neutrals-remains in force and as long as Britieli inhumanity against the civilian non-combatant population of Germany is continued. The president has brought about a diplomatic situation which must involve the United States in a war with Germany unless congress intercedes in proper time. Eatinjf for Pleasure, Eating for Strength, are two distinct propositions-but both operations are combined in Shredded Wheat Biscuit, the food that is pleasing to the palate, that makes healthy tissue and gives strength to mind and body. It is what you digest, not what you eat, that nourishes the body. Every particle of Shredded Wheat Biscuit is taken up by the digestive organs and. converted into muscle, bone and brain. Try it for breakfast with hot or cold milk or cream, or for any meal in combination with sliced bananas or other fruits. Made in Canada, ROOK OBSERVES Cranbrook.

THIRTY-ONE KILLED IN BIG FACTORY EXPLOSION Hordeaux, April 22.-Thirty per-Bons are believed to have been killed in the explosion of the powder branch of a grenade factory hero today. Already 28 bodies have been taken out of the debris. The cause of the explosion has not yet been established, l)ut the theory is that a spark from the electrical machine set. off powder while in tho prooesB of being mixed.
