WEATHER High Fdremait: Fair Editor Lethbridge Herald: inclined to look upon the idea that the city should -quietly inform young unmarried men they should go to the front to help pre- serve the liberties our forefathers be- queathed to us, as a'joke. It is no joke with me. If I had a dozen sons anil tiles- were all unmarried I should not cease urging them that it. was their duty to help keep the old nag nying, for without all Its guarantees life would not be worth living. 1, like Grey, would.remove myself from the sphere of. .German influence. If Germany won, and for the balance of my life-endeavor to create a feeling of' revulsion' and courage against the German government. I am 'beginning to feel that some of our mothers, sons and even fathers, do not .fully comprehend the possibili- ties of this Tvar if we do not all do our full duty. If fail. Mr. 10314 Shirker, Mr. Slacker, what .would the wtip had lost its .God-given right t'o order itself according to our own clictates.and.be under the heel of a think.of .you? Would you be able to look your fellow in the eye, 77 knowing; that you hid. .failed t'o fight 48 j for your own and yon'r 'country's pre- Ucrvatlon against-militarism? Sacrifices N.eceasary. Sacrifices are necessary, and it is not fair that the willing person and his family should make1 them all It is up to every man to. do, willingly, the part that he is capabte of doing To shirk a reasonable! duty is 'to be a poltroon. Most men are.ruore.pr "less afraid 'but the real hero is he uho is afraid but realizes bis.--duty a'nu goes forth to do liis dutj in soite of his fear. Thank God, feu men, in spite of fear, fail to do their duty. Now mothers, do" ylou a minute that other, mothers, wives sisters do not love their dear ones as much as you love yours? .Do you think they are offering up their loved ones they feel that a duty must be fulfilled, and they are .playing their part herbically Come mother, sister, wife and all, do your duty. Better that .your dear ones should live Na short .life that lia worth while, than to an empty life.for eighty years .that has failed.in its duty to itself, its country and its God. But it is not all who'must'die on the battle field, tut if they did, those who die on the battle field shall be forever enshrined in the hearts of those lefi behind, and ha-ve lived a life worth a thousand shirkers.
