Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 2, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, AUliUSl 2. 1918 THE LETIIBRIDCE DAIt-Y ITERALD PAGE FIVE VETERANS REPLACE "GOD SAVE KING" "0 Decide They Will Use This As Anthem To Close Their Meetings WortK Toronto, Aug. ,2.-The Great War Veteran*' Aosoclntlon of Can. ads has decided to replace the British National Anthem "God Save the King," with "O Canada" at the close of branch meetings. It was moved by an English clergyman. Rev. J. C. Davidson, now an adopted son of Canada, pnd carried at the convention this morning. Excr.pt for some doubt expressed as to smaller branches, without a piano, being unable to navigate through the subtle modulations of "0 Canada,'' no serious opposition was raised. 'It seems to be a very serious omission not to sing 'O Canada' at our branch meetings," said Mr. Davidson "We are Britons and British subjects, but we are all Canadians and are here to further the interests of our own country. "In this period of reconstruction It is expedient that Canada be first and foremost, and our national anthem brings our country's Job before us and should be sung In all our branches."

One carload ot freight was taken otf yesterday and' dispalchGd to Seattle. Conditions in efforts to effect lightering liave not altered in the past 24 hours and all reports agree that the failure to lighter the cargo before next southwest storm renders tho situation critical for salvage of the .*Teckod craft.

Tlio war board gives tho following list: Boots and .ihoeg have risen In price since the war began 100 per cent.; beet .'io per cent.; clothing ,50 per cent.; coal 100 per cent.; cordwooil 100 per cent.; flour 90 per cent.; ga.s- Vancouver, Aug. 2.-Before the military court to-d,^y David Kato, , claimed to be a Finnish subject, informed the court that he secured papers v/hich were to give him protection against military service from the Swedish consul at Calgary for $2. Asked how he came to get the papers Kato said he heard tlint the consul would give any one papers for $2 and therefore took advnn-t.ige of the chance. He simply v/ent before that official and swore ho was a Finnish subject after which he paid the moniy and the document was handed over Kato further volunteered the Information that he had been in the Canadian army four days, but that the said Swedish consul got him out by stating he was a Fin-lander and a married man. !* i. .y^ "; : Additional Sport CROW'S NEST COAL CO. WILL DECLARE DIVIDEND Noted Italian Violinist Coming Vincehzo GuUotta Heads Company, on Second Day at Chautauqua Toronio, Aug. 2.-Although no otti-oial statement has yet been made, it Is understood that tho Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company will shortly declare a dividi'ud of 1 1-2 jier cent. It is probable that payment will bo made about the end ot August. In spite of the labor troubles, which were thought to have been settled some motxhs ago, tho company still ha.s its difficulties on account of the Interference of certain agitators. These agitators, it is believed, are to some extent, at least, of the I. W. W. persuasion. They npparentlj". have taken refuge in Canada after" having been driven out from parts ot the United States. CANS BETTER THAN LEONARD. Veteran Trainer Says Negro Boxer Was in Class by Himself. The question i\a to the relative merits ot .loe GaM;i ruid Bonny Leonard frequently arinn.^. but as tho negro champion had passed on be. fore Leonard developpd. it Is difficult to get any gruuiid tor comparison. Adherents of boxers are profuse with opinions, .and the latest pronouncement coniLs from Kid North, who wae connected wit^i Cans' training staff in tlic days ot tho black champion's ascendancy. Xorlh recently was asked what cliance Leonard would have witli Caiw in his best form. "Not a chance in the world," ho said. "Of course I liavc to base this statement on what 1 saw of :Leonard and I realize tliat it was not a fair test. But hero's llir- way I figure it out. When .loe Gan=: '.vas at the top ot his form there was talk ot matching tho lightweight champion with Stanley Ketchel. *ho was a middleweight. Have you pver heard any talk ot matching l.onnard with the present middles, most ot whom don't come close to Ketcliol? 1 should pause to remark that you don't. "There's my nn.swor to the talk about comparing the two Kids. And understand me. fpllDws, 1 don't want to knock Benny Leonard. He's a fine boy and a wonderful (haniplon." So far as Leonard and Cans are concerned, it would seem that tho negro vanquished a harder field than Leonard has to dale. Vet Benny has. plenty ot time in v.-liic'li to show that ho is the greatest liclitweight champion in history. Tlie s'.to for l)ir) lilg Caaiilauqua tent in Lethhrld'jct Ikks lurn cuangi'd.

Students on the Farm. College students, particularly those who have had experience in farming, should plan their vacations this year helping wltll the harvest. Things are 80 serious this year that they can well forego their usual yncatipn, well earned though it he, to aid In iho sav-I Ine of the crop, Reports from different parts ot the district indicate that some farmers are cutting their grain fields in the bolief that, as a result ot frost damage on Tuesday night, it will be more valuable for hay than as grain,- In view of the pasture and hay shortage in the south, it is more than likely that wheat cut as hay will be almost as profitable as it it had produced a crop ot grain. There is every evidence of a sufficient demand to absorb the whole production. This will mean thousands of tons ot good hay available for stock feed. Xlthough the loss ot a considerable portion of the grain crop is a serious matter, it disposes ot any danger to the live stock of tho country. For several weeks past there has been a tendency reported in the south to sacrifice Uvo stock because ot shortage ot feed and hay. That should not occur now, and will not so soon as the conditions are thoroughly understood and the balance adjusted. Panic la the greatest enemy of success. At ono stage the southern people were sacrificing* tholl\ stock because ot feed shortage. At another stage tho peoplo ot the north are apt to sacrifice their grain in tho holiot that it has boon entirely ruined. While no doubt the cutting of some grain fields today is justified by the facts, it It is not wise to conclude that the conditions in all localltleB are tho same; and farmers would be wall advised not to be too hasty in coming to conclusions. The situation in the north swings around to the same point at which it stood during so many years in the envlier settlement ot tho country. Tho man who has a hunch ot cows can look fato in the face under all circumstances without batting an eye, while tho man without the cows is taking chances. SoraQtlmos the wheat farmer made a killing, and sometimes tho killing got him. There Is always grass for hay. Beet and dairy products always find a sure mnrkot. Fortunately the amount of live stock In the country is such that tho partial losB ot the wheat crop doos not amount to inore than a failure to realize on great expectatlonB. Stock production hiia been Rtimulated by the same oaiiie that has put a crimp In graln.-r-Ed-uionton Bulletin.
