There are manw who are aware that there is such an institution, but who have only a slight idea of its meaning. There are, too, quite a .number of people who understand its aims and objects but from the soldiers' point of view only, but they do not realize to what extent this movement tends and how vitally it affects the citizens of Canada throughout the Dominion. With conscription in sight, and when soon every man who can be a soldier, will be a soldier, after this war the returned man and wltat to do for him is going to be one of the biggest problems facing this country. We are going to win the war, but the cost of it i3 going to be at a frightful sacrifice. To the men who, alas, can never come back, the country owe the deepest debt of gratitude, but we can do little for them except to worship and honor their memory as the greatest of Canada's heroes, and see that justice is accorded their dependants. We can, however, do something for the man who is privileged to return from this awful turmoil in France, Flanders and elsewhere, and It is up to every citizen of Canada to interest himself or herself to a greater or lesser extent as circumstances. permit, and to make it a personal matter to see that the man who has fought the battles of his country is given every opportunity to regain his position in life as ;a happy, prosper: ous and worthy citizen. It is a matter of common knowledge to the world at large of whatever nationality, thpt the returned fighting man after previous wars has been a sadly neglected quantity. Many a man hitherto who has come home from the wars has, as the public know, been so neglected and overlooked that he has often been cast in the slough of despair and has often ended in abject poverty and even worse. Treatment such as was meted out to those men is too horrible to reflect upon, put, let me assure you that that treatment has been and is now being seriously reflected upon by many a maimed lad lying on the field, and in the hospitals' of France, England and elsewhere. It is also very much in the minds of the men at the front at the present time, and It has been doubtless a deterrent, more or less, to many a man joining the army and doing his bit for his country. He has no doubt seriously reflected on his recollections of the actions of an apparently ungrateful country, and he has been fearful of a repetition. Such treatment must never occur again in this country, or it will be to our everlasting disgrace. The soldiers now returned incapacitated from further duty in tho field, feel their responsibility has not, and Bhould not, end there. As men whom God has privileged to return, they feel that they are tho bearerB of a sacred trust towards the man who is fighting our battles in France, and with such a sacred trust indelibly Impressed on their minds they want to make cloar to tho people the aims and objects of the Great War Veterans' association and endeavor to obtain, from tliem not only their goodwill, but their active co-operation in the great work that lies before thorn. They do not wish to convey the impression that It Is to become a begging Institution. What is most desired is that the people at largo will look upon this movement as part and parcel of a duty that has devolved upon us all, and such is actually the case, and to realize that to look after the welfare, welcome and protection that must be afforded the boys who are and have yet to come back is the duty of every one. Men' will come hack so incapacitated that they will never'again be able to return to their former occupation In life. Men will return with all sorts of .disabilities not apparent to the eye but which are Just as real to the men themselves and to their dependants. Again on the return of men who have been tor months In the trenches, their nerves are in such a condition that a long time must elapse before they can sufficiently i� bridge to tome down here to farm, but we believe ho has been amply repaid. There Is over two thousand acres In crop this year. Seven binders are now busy in its fields every day. Some, of tho best buddings In this part of the country tiro on this property.

The men who have come back know the unsettled feeling that ccmes to men on their rotura t-civil life after having gone thous'i such experience as are representative of daily life in the trenches. Our first object then must be to look to the welfare of the men who come back. To be ready with tho means of helping him, not only from a material standpoint, but from a social standpoint, so that when he steps on the soil of this country again he will at once realize that he is at home and amongst loving friends who will look after him and his. To bo inspired with such a feeling as that on his return from the terrible experiences he has just come through, is sure to tend to a tremendous uplift of the men and encourage them to return to civil life with a good heart to become a useful member of whatever community he may go to. The membership of this associat'on today is upward of 11,000 men m~dG up by local bodies in the various parts of the country. Amongst others are the following aims and objects of the association. To perpetuate the close and kindly ties of mutual service, the recollections and associations of experience, and to maintain the proper standards of dignity and honor between all returned soldiers. , To preserve the memory and record of those t!$at have suffered and died for the nation, to see to the erection of monuments to their valour and the provision of suitable burial places, and the establishment of a memorial day, to ensure that proper provision Is made for the due care of the sick, wounded and needy among those who" have served, including reasonable pension, employment for such as are capable,- soldiers' homes, medical care and equitable provision for dependent families of enlisted men ; to constantly Inculcate loyalty to Canada and the Empire in unstinted terms in their interest. Great War Vets Gal TWO F It must be admitted that the aims and objects are most worthy ones and deserving of the most sympathetic support of the people in this country. It is realized that much has been done and done willingly, but the association feels it a duty to go to the people and obtain their loyal support in this great movement. It is not always the pension law, it Is not always the public fund that will meet the case of tho returned soldier, but it is the association's aim to play the part of the comrade true and tried and our living, though maimed, brothers and the loved ones of our departed brothers from the east to the west, ever to feel secure under tho sheltering wing of our more than Masonic order. Can a patriot, can a man who loves his country, can the man who desires to be a worthy citizen of this great country, made great by the blood and suffering of its young manhood, can ho justify his existence as a citizen of Canada If he fails to co-operate heart and soul In this great work? Lethbridge has It3 branch of this association, and the boys are proud of its quarters and the loyal support that has been afforded It. A returned man coming to Lethbridge has only to cross the road from tho depot to the assotiatloni quarters and he is at once assured of a hearty welcome by his comrades, a good social and reading room, a good bed to sleep In and friends who find it a pleasure to look after his interests.  Support, however, Is badly needed to carry on with this movement, and any who read this and have not helped are urgently asked to do bo. Any donation will bo most gratefully received and officially- acknowledged by the secretary. / Let us hope that our aims and objects now are sufficiently clear and that the people will realize when they open, their hearts to us and to the boys that aro to follow, that they are doing a great deal to rebuild the shattered manhood that returns from this awful war, and that they are helping to a largo extent to repay the frightful debt that wo all owe to those whone life blood is spilt on the fields of France and Flanders., y i.V.

You must add to the cost price of a poor tube about half the value of the casing it ruins. For poor tubes* do ruin casings. Poor tubes allow slow leakage of air. Slow leaks cause imperceptible, and so most dangerous, under-infla-tion. Under-inflation is the greatest of all tire enemies. These are the reasons we advise motorists to look carefully to their tubes. These are the reasons we put thousands of dollars into extra cost every year to build Goodyear Tubes by the lamination process. This is the right way to build tubes -to take highest quality rubber and roll it out tissue-thin for rigid inspection. Then to build up the flawless sheets, layer on layer, into a perfect tube, extra thick, extra-well fitted for its duties. And because greater mileages from Goodyear Tires will make friends for us, we advise the use of Goodyear Tubes. It is of value to you that Goodyear Tubes give additional value' in long service and satisfaction. Remember the name Goodyear when you buy tubes.
