Your King and Country need you H0h't THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Yesterday's despatches recorded stil further prepress by allied troops on nil fronts.

Substantial gains on British and French fronts to the extent of nearly a mile along wide fronts, are recorded. Fighting with the Turks at Suez and in Mesopotamia continues. STUDY THE FREE HOSPITAL QUESTION We are pleased to see that the Hos- pital Board decided that the time was not ripe to consider the free hospital question, not because they dc not be- lieve in the principle involved but be- cause there are so many details of management .and financing to work out. Tlie principle stands out clear cut and free public hospitals are coming, probably sooner than many of us im- agine. But, as we pointed out last Thursday, there are so many import- ant details to be worked out, all of which bear on the practicability of the scheme, that it is better to take' plenty of time to study. the problem every angle. The United Farmers of Alberta have the whole_ question pfi free hospitals in hand and if Leth- bridge keeps pace with them we will be elding very well. But it is a ques- tion of which we should not lose sight for a moment RICKED UP IN SSINGCZZ1 FOR THE BTJST HAN A baby with two teeth was born In a Calgary hospital.
