Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, APRIL 27, IPIR THE LETHBHlUliE DAILY lllil\ALO PAGE NINE RANDOM NOTES OF A COUNTRY SCHOOLMASTER About PUy. Amid aH the-horrors of modern wartere and Ita hideous efCocts, ther6 springs uphere Biid there the ifnaCer-iallzatlon ot ain impulse beautiful and Immune, both In conception and oper-atilon Ulie t'Me flower which talieg root Ivetweto tile Youg'li nnd dirty atones ot a gi-im prison. Such it manifestation lis the rocon-fltructlon and rehabilltatlan of the ruined vlUages and homen oC France; Ui6 building up or a new Mfn and a now impulse to Hfe amonlg tnese poor people who have gone through the hajl of toaing by violence and cruelty all that' ni�d� life gracious, gay ami companionable, and who now �lt staring wWh' lenipty eyea at the drainaa thfit Btlll go on around them. For the older ones-those past middle age it 1b guild thiit practically nothing can bo done except to make the present bearable: the terrible fmages and horrid sights that have been burned upon the mental retina seemed to have seared the iieart and soul, till all that' renvalns is a dumb, dead apathy. Sadder by far however are the children, -who, forced as little tots to endure aneulsh and teri-or such da falls to tew adults, have become serious, agSd, looking upon every strange person or thilng with grave iiuostloulng eyrife. They.^ ask no questions p'oud, l)ut patient and sad, accept siJentJy what reparations life can now offer them. In the retreats and asylums where the little ones ha^e been gatif-ered, n^entlo women and beautifi!! young girls are teaching the children to play, coaxing back the smiles to their lips and serious eyoa, trying with dolls and playthings to call them back to pretty artless prattle and eager and hopeful joys. Yes, play they shall if patience and tact can lead them to it, and play they njust, If th�y are to take part in the enormous work that is to come. For when the reign of hate is over, when the monster is dead which has devastated the fields and scorched the orchards and vineyards with his devouring breath of flame, then a new task arises which can only be assumed by workers grounded in courage and talth-the flowery meadows must bloom again, seed time and harvest must bring their world old healing- trench aBd shell crater must be made to blossom and bring forth. For such Work as this the great impulse must be the creative one-which is born ot play. It Is hard Indeed when the heart is "torn with the misery and suffering of the little ones overseas to turn to thoije at home. They at least have the two greatest blessings ot tiie world at present, security and plenty. In some lights it seems wrong that either money or energy should be diverted to home uses from the bitter need abroad. And yet in another sense, now of all times is when the child at home most calls for our fostering care. For it has never been true as it is true today tlvat "the children of America are the hope of the world." With their unstained vision, th^ir undaunted I CftUra'gei their keem emotions' .and awakened understanding, they 'will take up the banners laid down In battle by brothers, fathers, friends, and will caiTy forward not only their country's flag nor the flag of their allies, but 'more, so much more, the WONT FIGHT FOR Austria Does Not Feel Like Spilling Blood For Hun Annexations London, April 27.-"One thing is certain." says the Arbelter Zc'ltung ot Vienna, as quoted in ko Exchange. Telegmph despatch from The Hague, "i^'e are not going to allow Austrian Tilood to be shed either now'or later on, to retain German. cdnquests."  This statement fs nuide in a criticism of Germany's action lu the direction of Virtual annexation of the former Ruaalan border states of Livonia and Bsthonia, The newspaper asks whether the treaty concluded with Russia at Brest^LItovsk is still valid, and adds: "Germany's action will have to be paid for with another war as coou as Russia is strong' enough. This, of course, lis entirely Germany's business," TELLS OF ACIIVITY Ottawa, April 27.-Major General Mewburn, minister ot militia, received today a cable from Sir Edward Kemp, minister of overgeaH forces, regarding the operations on the 'Canadian front during the past few days. The cable states: "On April 21, Saskatchewan troops entered th� enemy trenches, Inflicted oaaualtlea and captured one wounded ppisonvr. "On April 22, the German trenches were raided at six different points during the night. The Canadlani inflicted heavy casualties on the enemy and captured Ave prlapnera and two machine guns. "Ontario troops repulsed a hostile raid causing numerous casualties ;to Ihe enemy." Once an Fniporra, Mo., woniail'--refused to accept an order 'of toothylcke from her grocer becauser ibi/y were pointed at one end. The same woman ordered a drlme's worth- of animal jrackars, aaklng her grocer to hold out ihe elephants because they frightened I ite baby. flag of a purified and rejuvenated world. What the re-raade world will be like we can only guess. But .noniewhere in the crowded city wards or In lonely Uttle prairie school houses the leade-ers of the great niovements of tomorrow are developing their powers. What do you, father, know about your boys' recreations .il rece.sH time or at the noon hour? is lie engaged in happy wholesome gamcH of .skill which bring out all his resource and manliness and make him lit to do his part, or is he skulking about smoking, indulging, in idle misclitet ami taking part only in the sports of Uie roughneck and the burly? Do you think it outside your province or lio-nea/th your dignity to Inquire into these things, to do your share and to see that the school does its share to provide the boys with evory opportunity for clean and manly sporl; to give the girls a ? ? ?
