Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1918 THE LETHJ3H1U0I'; 1 HERALD PAGE ELEVEN Citizens' Gommittee Brings Lyceum Attractions to City; Irvin S. Cobb One of Artists At. Boi'iie considerable effort and at the expeuso of a large guarantee, ft comraittoe of clllzeriB has undertaken to provide Ijothbrldge this winter with the famous Lyceum at-Iraetions, vvhiiih are on v. par with, nil often superior to, the Chautauqua X^ractions. Those attractions are to jart In Jjethbridge at once, with the liortha Farner Concert Co., next B'uesday evening in the Majestic. It Is expected that the public will show Its appreciation of such first-class entertainment by giving generous patronage. Season tickets for all of the attiractions are now on sale for a very nominal figure. The L-yceum is conducted much along the same prlnctplo as the Chautauqua, save that only one attraction comes each month. This has the ad-j vantage not only of spreading the i , entertainments over the winter, but,' of guaranteeing even higher-class productions. When auch famous lecturers as Irvin S. Cobb, now noted not only in America but also in Europe and Britain, can be secured to come here, Jt Is certain that the attractions are RIBBON TEA. , Don't waste your time and money in trying to find some-?*just as good'' as BLUE RIBBON TEA worth the money asked. The com-liilttee of cltUens who have undertaken this work Include the following: Geo. Marnoch, S. J. Shepherd, H, T. Brymner, K. A. Sharman, W. .r. Neiison, Mrs. McClenaghan, Mrs. R; B. Skeith, ?. P. .Tamleson, G. M. Gades, C, 0. Grotf, H. O. Long, T. Evans, W. D. King, R. P. Wallace, A, B. fiogg, R. H. Dobson, W. A. R. Cocq, Geo, Harper, S. S. Dunham. With the big musical event of next Tuesday evening the alitractiona will open, Next comes Mr. Cobb on .Tan-uary 30. Then there will be olhens equally as good later. Season tickets, which are selling for only ?3.00 for the whole of the four attractions, may be had from any member ot the committee, from The Herald office, from Miss Bentley at the city hall, or from any member of the Girls' Auxiliary or Miss Tilley at the Nursing Mission.

CaBiada must do her share with ihe United Staites in conserving wheat stuffs until the next European harvest. While there is wheat in Australia and other distant parts, still the world's reserves have been practically exhausted, and Europe will heed every busliel that can be spared to carry her population along for tlie next eight or nine months. Even at the best, it is feared that many people Avill starve. Substitute flour regula-tionis have been made voluntary since the war ended, but that does not mean that the old unrestricted use of white flour should be resumed forthwith. Canada niufii economize wheat products until the countries of Europe depending on this continent have had time to reap a peace-time harvest. All restrictions on the use of light in Illiuola have been removed by the gtate fuel controller; Rylands' Christmas Sale YOUR CHRISTMAS STORE READY, SPARKUNG WITH A RADIANCE WHICH ONLY A DELIGKTFUL, NEW FRESHNESS CAN REFLECT.
