HARRY MANAGER Within the past week several of the big Canadian newspapers have published photos or' Lieut, the Rev. Edwin Smith, the Tillsonburg" (On- tario) pastor who has given up his pulpit to take command of a motor- cruiser in the British submarine pa- trol, hut the officer referred to was, until little more than a year ago, one of Alberta's best known minis- ters. Mr. Smith who is now Lieut. Edwin Smith of the Royal Navy, wai pastor of the Presbyterian church at -Macleod until the outbreak oE war in Europe and at that time he went east to take another church. Yachtsman and Astronomer An amateur yachtsman who knows the Alaskan and Labrador coasts thoroughly, Lieut. Smith has had a career that comes seldom to men outside fiction. He has made a spec- ial study of astronomy and naviga- tion and for many years he has been a frequent contributor to leading Canadian magazines on these sub- jects. He has travelled extensively in Newfoundland, Labrador and Alaska and he is as much at home on the Atlantic ocean in a square-rigged ves- sel or small yacht as he is a rail- way train. Had Close Call For'many years Lieut. Smith was the owner of the famous yacht "Miz- pah" and it was in her that he had the closest call he ever had from death upon the ocean. In the ter- rific gale that swept the seas in No- vember, 1908, Lieut. Smith was caught alone in his yacht and it was only by lashing himself to the wheel that he was enabled for three days and nights to fight the wind and sea. Though he had abundance of food on board, he tasted neither food nor wa- ter for three days, and all that time the seas were breaking over the Miz- pah, threatening each minute to strew it over On the_ fourth day he made land with nothing worse than the loss of over worth of sails to report, and in 1914 he made a voyage up the Alaska coast in a 36-foot auxiliary yacht, in which he visited many out- of-the-way places. He made the trip in safety and lie has also crossed the Atlantic many times in vessels and steamers. .j-tv BRILLIANT WORK OF AIRMAN rParisr Aug. the JSoinnie Second I-iaut.

Hook's evidence was taken by a committee in New York on April llth fast, iollpwing his refusal to return to Winnipeg and it is being read to the jury by R. W. Craig of Jhe crown counsel. Hook, who was formerly employed in the .Manitoba provincial architect's de- partment under V. Horwood. told of making trips south to see Salt at the request of Horwood. and of bo- ng given with which he w to make terms with Salt for a trip to Australia. Hook swore that he was robbed of this money in Omaha, Nebraska. Hook said that on March year he went to Chicago with money and messages, at the request of Horwood and saw Salt. On his re- turn he did not tell the ex-ministers of Salt's whereabouts, because, he said he was "no fool." He declared he "could read behind tbe. lines" and he "suspicioned that they knew where Salt was and were keeping him from the public accounts He inferred this from the way Hor- wood spoke. On another occasion Hook went to Minneapolis to see Salt and persuaded him to continue his travels. Still later Horwood gave him for Salt, who was in Den- ver. Hook quoted Horwood as saying he "thought Coldwell and Howden got the money out of their own pockets.'-' A little later.. in his evidence Hook qualified this statement when he re- called that Horwood told him at some time that Dr.. Simpson had furnished iome money. Hook declared that at i Omaha tw7o men robbed him of this I and of the balance of ex-1 pense money, leaving him: ?30 on which he returned to Winnipeg and reported to Horwood, who had been for some time in such an agitated state that Hook feared he would lose us reason. Hook said Horwood re- ported he had told "the old and tiook was not to worry.

In fact Studebaker does not consider its responsibility fully discharged until every detail of care arid operation is thoroughly understood by the owner. To this end there has be.en established what is known as Studebaker DEFINITE Service. This consists of a thorough inspection of every Studebaker car, at regular intervals, for a period of six months after purchase, without a dollar of cost. Not only does this guard against motor troubles which prevail in any car, but it educates the owner to the proper care of his car so that he can get lOOfo pleasure and usefulness from it every day in the year. You are invited to come in and see how Studebaker DEFINITE Service is operated to the benefit of the user, THE STUDEBAKER GARAGE J. T.
