A. Buchanan John Torrance iJaDaifrag Director Business Manage: THE WAR SITUATION TODAY Tho main feature in the news frbn the front .continues to be tho captui of Lodz in Poland by the Gorman and on the development o the eastern campaign. Tho importance Lodz as a stra tegical .centre is not minimized, being as it is a railway centre, and its oc cupation threatening the Russian llni communication with Warsaw. Bu on tho other hand it does not appeal that the holding ft the town by the (enemy can too maintained for long, or that he can materialize his hold to pne of advantage without fortifying ids victory iif a second defeat of the Russians. The.crucial part of the fighting Poland has veered round southward to the neighborhood of Cracow, aud, consequently, it yet remains to be seen whether tha occupation of Lodz forced by a military necessity OB 'the part of tie Russians or, to borrow ihe explanatory phrase which has jired in the campaign, for tactical aud Strategical reasons, Activity on the part of tie Allies in Helgium and Fiance Trill, no doubt, have its influence on the eastern cam- paign, and indications .point that the Blversion is about to take place. SUPPORT LOCAL INDUSTRIES The complaint is frequently made local industries that their goods are not featured as they should be 'by local merchants. One industry, which prospects for the future, koakes the" statement that it cannot dell its prodaat Letbiridge in com- petition "l.witfc outside goods of- the' name kind. Thia particular product, ia our judjnwnt, is the best on the market, and we are satisfied that i the- industry was 'encouraged as 'ii should be encouraged., it would very soon develop into a very, importan manufacturing concern, employing many hands. There are a number o small industries in Lethbridge which if properly treated by' the merchants and the citizens would soon expand into concerns that would be a credit to the city. Slany of the largest in- dustries throughout the country have grown from small beginnings. It ibetter for Lethbridge to have half a frozen small concerns producing high class goods that will eventually build lip a larga. than one large industry pampered by bonuses and bringing in raw material from a long distance. The small industry, econ- cmically -.conducted, expanding liade warrants, will prove to t industry and one that the city pan''depend upon for all time. Lethbridse needs at the pres -feat time is a genuine co-operative a sentiment amongst that will bring about lojal irajpbrt of local industries.
